Chapter 207: Surpa.s.s You at Entry
Nangong Jing gasped, and she raised her brow impatiently. “You’re a new student after all. It is not fair for you. After school starts, I’ll give you an opportunity. You should like it.”
To this kid, this half month was indeed a huge loss for him. She quite liked this kid, and due to Uncle Merlin, she would give him an opportunity when the time was right.
Sigh… she really didn’t want to go there…
Nangong Jing felt tired, but she couldn’t avoid going.
Lu Ze’s eyes lit up.
What sort of opportunity did she mean? Lu Ze was curious.
Everyone else looked at Lu Ze with envy.
Although he lost the chance to earn military merit on the battlefield, Nangong Jing’s opportunity clearly would compensate for this. It would probably even overcompensate!
Nangong Jing looked at Lin Ling and the rest. “The battlefield is no longer suitable for new students like you. You guys can also go back to HQ. There will compensation too. Your academic credit will be three times that of what you acquired.”
They didn’t expect this. Although there would be less military merit, the academic credit would make up for it.
The battlefield was going to be more dangerous. It was pretty good to receive such rewards without the need to take risks.
Old Derry glanced at the officers and said, “It will be a huge battle. I hope everyone will take it seriously.”
Old Derry nodded with satisfaction after seeing the curiosity of everyone. Then, he smiled, “I’m no stubborn old fool. There would be a few days before the blade demons arrive. Tonight will be the celebration of the victory from last time. This is the last relaxation before the war.”
“Tomorrow, lead your troops to prepare for the war!”
Everyone smiled. A celebration was necessary for a big victory.
It was a huge increase in morale and helped soldiers relieve some pressure.
Old Derry wasn’t going to keep his soldiers constantly tense.
After the discussion, everyone left the meeting room.
Nangong Jing walked over and smiled. “I will escort you out tomorrow to base. You guys go pack up first.”
“The war isn’t finished yet. Your military merit will be awarded at the HQ. Major General Barry will deal with it.”
Then, she left with the other young dukes and military officers.
Lu Ze smiled. “Since teacher Nangong said this, let’s go back and pack up first. We can have an early holiday tomorrow.”
Tianyuan Qianhua said, “I wonder what our reward will be?”
Everyone was keen with antic.i.p.ation too. Lin Ling smiled. “We’ll know once we get to the HQ.”
Thus, everyone went back to their dorms and started packing their belongings.
At night, Lu Ze and the others were notified to attend the celebratory party.
It was held in a military hall. All the high levels who went to the battle arrived. Those soldiers would celebrate with their own companies.
As for the defense of the base, it would be the new arrivals who would be responsible.
When Lu Ze and the others arrived, there were quite some people present already, including their senior schoolmates and the prodigy barrack prodigies.
As soon as Lu Ze walked in, he smelled this intense aroma, making his eyes light up.
Ahh… it was the smell of delicious food!
There were long rows of tables with all sorts of food there.
Lu Ze gulped his saliva.
He wanted to eat!
There were no special rules at the celebration. Everyone could grab whatever they wanted.
Nangong Jing was happily drinking wine right now.
She was overexcited from all the beautiful wine here.
Lu Ze charged in and grabbed a plate and began stuffing all sorts of food inside his mouth.
Seeing this, Lin Ling’s mouth spasmed. However, everyone felt hungry too, so they grabbed their plates and started eating.
People would come to say hi to Lu Ze from time to time.
After all, Lu Ze was strong and talented. It was good to know him.
Lu Ze felt it was troublesome, but he had to smile back with manners.
Eventually, Lu Ze ran to Nangong Jing. No one dared to come next to her.
Who wasn’t worried about the female T-Rex?
Nangong Jing’s face blushed from the wine. She said, “Kid, tell me, you and Uncle Merlin are familiar with each other?”
Uncle Merlin told her to take special care of Lu Ze, this wasn’t like him.
Lu Ze smiled. “We’re alright. I’m good friends with Alice. As for Uncle Merlin… I’ve been beaten up by him a few times.”
When he reminisced his training before, it was full of pain, especially for his b.u.t.t.
Nangong Jing wasn’t too satisfied with this answer, but she didn’t keep asking. “Your power is still too weak. Your control of strength isn’t good enough. It’s not just strength G.o.d art, but also the other G.o.d arts. You’re just completely letting loose. When we go back to school, I will teach you properly.”
Lu Ze: …
Lu Ze felt cold when he heard the word “teach” for some reason.
Then, he thought of something and looked at Nangong Jing curiously. “By the way Teacher Nangong, what is the opportunity you were talking about?”
Nangong Jing glared at Lu Ze. “Don’t ask what you shouldn’t. You will know when the time is right. You won’t be losing out.”
Then, she curled her lips. “If it wasn’t due to Uncle Merlin, I wouldn’t take you there.”
This made Lu Ze even more curious, but he couldn’t force her to say it.
At this moment, Lin Ling walked over with a plate.
Lu Ze glanced at her plate, it was full of meat. There were no vegetables nor spirit fruit.
She smiled at Nangong Jing. “Sister Jing, I want to apply for a leave.”
Lu Ze opened his eyes wide. “Apply for a leave?”
What was she doing this for during an entrance test?
Nangong Jing was a little surprised too. Then, she asked, “Reason?”
Then, Nangong Jing seemed to have thought of something. She gave Lin Ling a complicated look and asked, “You’ve thought it through?”
Lin Ling showed a complicated smile. “We’ll talk about that later.”
Nangong Jing nodded. “Aren’t you going to tell your brother?”
Lin Ling looked hesitant for a moment, but then, she shook her head. “Never mind, he will know.”
“Heh, if you tell him now, he would probably feel much better and perform much better in the war? You’re really not going to tell him?” Nangong Jing smirked.
Lin Ling’s face stiffened, and then, she rolled her eyes. “Sister Jing, you’re really mean.”
Nangong Jing smiled. “Some things aren’t appropriate for me to say, but it’s good you can see through it.”
Then, she drank some more.
She rubbed Lin Ling’s head. “I approve of the leave.”
Lin Ling’s eyes lit up as she giggled. “Thank you, Sister Jing.”
Lu Ze felt dazed, and he looked strangely at the two.
“Lin Ling, what are you guys talking about?”
Lin Ling raised a brow and smiled. “When we start school, my power will definitely surpa.s.s you.”
Lu Ze: “???”
He looked at Lin Ling in disbelief. Since when was she this arrogant? Even he didn’t dare to be this arrogant.
Nangong Jing grinned. “It might really be possible. Lin Ling you need to work hard.”
Lu Ze: “???”
He felt Nangong Jing’s smile was evil. Even she felt it was possible?
This seemed to be a problem. He became worried.
