Chapter 293 Sleeping Yingying
Lu Ze and Lin Ling came to the s.p.a.ce station and inquired about the schedule of transportation. They found out that the earliest s.h.i.+p to Telun system would arrive half an hour later.
It was just an ordinary s.h.i.+p, so the price wasn’t expensive. The two chose to buy a single private room ticket.
On the s.h.i.+p, they came to their own room.
The room wasn’t big. There was a double bed, as well as a couch and a screen.
Lin Ling sat on the bed while Lu Ze lay on the couch.
“There is half an hour until it takes off. It’ll stop at Lan Jiang first. Are you sure you don’t want to visit my house? I’ll introduce Alice to you,” Lu Ze invited. After all, Lin Ling was his best friend at school.
Lin Ling rolled her eyes. “I am not going.” At this moment, Lin Ling’s phone rang. She picked it up and said in surprise, “It’s sister Jing.” She opened the projection as Nangong Jing’s head popped out. “Lu Ze, Lin Ling, I…” Nangong Jing was about to speak when she saw the environment, her face stiffened, and she looked strangely at the two.
“Sorry for disturbing your workout. You guys should continue.”
Then, she hung up the phone.
Lu Ze: “…”
Lin Ling: “…”
What do you mean by ‘work out’?
At this point, they just realized that the environment didn’t seem too right.
Lu Ze became speechless. The circuit in this alcoholic’s brain seemed to be crooked, isn’t it?
She was an alcoholic and dirty-minded. She was beyond help.
They just wanted to find a quiet place to rest.
Lin Ling felt a bit awkward. It did seem a bit strange that a guy and a girl were in a room with a bed.
However, interstellar travel usually took a few days. Beds were standard in rooms.
After all, ordinary people needed sleep.
After a moment of silence, Lin Ling called back.
When the call connected, Qiuyue Hesha appeared too.
Qiuyue Hesha looked at the room with interest. “For the first time, isn’t the environment a bit too shabby? Does little brother Lu Ze not know how to treat a girl right?”
Lu Ze said expressionlessly, “We’re innocent, okay? We’re just staying in a room on our way home.”
Lin Ling nodded. “We’re just planning to visit home.”
Hearing this, the two finally realized it. Then, Lin Ling asked curiously, “Sister Jing, why did you call me?”
When Nangong Jing heard the question, she immediately remembered what she was supposed to say. “For some reason, Yingying took a bite of the air and said she ate something very disgusting. Then, she said she was a bit tired, and now, she’s asleep.”
Lu Ze and Lin Ling felt stunned. Subsequently, they recalled the scene where Yingying ate the three black-robed monsters. Was it because of that?
Qiuyue Hesha saw this and asked, “You guys know the reason?”
Lu Ze nodded and told them what happened.
Then, Lin Ling asked, “Is Yingying okay?”
Theoretically, those three black-robed monsters were just at the aperture opening state, and Yingying was a cosmic realm state being.
Yet, Yingying fell asleep?
Were those things poisonous?
Nangong Jing shook her head and smiled. “Lin Ling, don’t worry. Yingying is this strong, how can something happen to her? Her chi is very stable. We just think she’s in hibernation again.”
Lu Ze and Lin Ling frowned at this.
Lu Ze asked, “She’s not going to sleep for another two thousand years, right?”
They could still live for two thousand years, but that would take quite a long time.
Qiuyue Hesha shook her head. “I don’t know.”
Lin Ling asked, “Yingying is sleeping right
Nangong Jing nodded. “Mhm, I let her sleep in my room.”
She showed Yingying on the bed. She seemed to be sleeping very well and was even drooling.
Seeing this, Lu Ze and Lin Ling didn’t feel so worried anymore.
Nangong Jing scratched her head. “Who knows? Maybe, she will wake up in the next moment.”
Lu Ze frowned. Although Yingying fought over food with him every time, she had been very obedient and even came to eat those three monsters when they were in danger.
Would those three things really be poisonous?
Or was it that Yingying devoured their energies and wanted to sleep again?
No one knew as none of them had kept a young star spirit before.
Nangong Jing smiled. “I’ve told you everything. We’ll watch over Yingying, so don’t worry you two.”
Qiuyue Hesha narrowed her eyes and said seductively, “You two can just enjoy your trip.” Lu Ze: “…”
Lin Ling: “…” “Hahaha, we’re hanging up.” Nangong Jing felt it was funny and even burped before hanging up. Lin Ling glared at Lu Ze. “I blame you!”
Lu Ze: “???”
What did he do?
Then, Lin Ling frowned. “I wonder when Yingying will wake up.”
Lu Ze frowned too. “We’ll check once we get back.”
Lin Ling nodded.
That was Yingying’s heritage, so there was nothing they could do.
It took half a day for the s.h.i.+p to arrive at the Telun system. It stopped at planet Lan Jiang first before proceeding to Lin Ling’s planet, Jing Ping
Half a day later, the s.h.i.+p stopped at planet Lan Jiang. Lu Ze got up and smiled. “You’re really not going?” Lin Ling glared. “No!” Then, she smiled. “I’m going back to show great-grandpa my progress.”
She wanted to show elder Lin, who has sacrificed so much for her, her progress, and let him know that she had lived up to his expectations.
Lu Ze was dazed for a moment after hearing her answer. He then smiled. “Your progress has been ma.s.sive lately. Elder Lin must be very happy.”
Lu Ze then walked out.
Before closing the door, Lu Ze turned around and smiled once more. “Although, you’re still a bit weaker than me.”
Then, he quickly closed the door and ran.
Lin Ling was originally happy when she heard his words, but when he said the last sentence, her smile stiffened. She wanted to catch up and beat this guy up.
But if she chased after him, she would end up in his house. She wasn’t going to fall for his plan.
When Lu Ze got off, it was night time on the planet.
Cars and flying s.h.i.+ps came and went at the square of the s.p.a.ce station. It was very busy and prosperous. Lu Ze looked at the familiar environment and smiled.
The last time he came here, it was for the graduation trial. In a blink of an eye, a few months had pa.s.sed.
He had transmigrated to this world for four months.
Lu Ze happily left the square and came to the checkpoint.
Similar to the flights back in the Earth era, one still needed to go through security checks.
Lu Ze felt he needed a private s.h.i.+p just like the alcoholic’s Golden Swirl.
While Lu Ze was in the middle of his dream, he suddenly felt a large number of eyes gathering around him.
“Hey, that’s…” “Mhm, Lu Ze from our planet?” “That’s right. I’ve noticed him since the graduation trial. I’ve seen his battlefield clips too. I’m his fan!”
“Lu Ze is so handsome…”Lu Ze: “…”
He resisted looking in the direction of the girl and kept walking.
He forgot that as a level four honor badge holder, he could enter through special tunnels!
He was too excited joking with Lin Ling that it had escaped his memory.
Although Lu Ze was being watched, everyone remained civilized and didn’t rush up to touch him.
After pa.s.sing the security checks, Lu Ze felt relieved.
Afterward, Lu Ze flew under all sorts of strange glances on the way to his home.
Although he already told Lu Li and Alice that he would be back these few days, he didn’t say the specific time. He was going to give them a surprise.
