Chapter 309 Must Be Infected
Lu Ze looked at Lin Ling’s stiff expression and sighed. He suddenly wanted to make it difficult for her.
With a relaxed tone, he said, “In that case, I’ll take it back then. I was thinking about giving you some extra chance to catch up with me while teacher Nangong and Hesha aren’t here. Now, it seems you don’t need this opportunity at all.” Lin Ling: “!!!”
When she heard his words, her body could not help but freeze. Lin Ling just now remembered that she planned to defeat this guy.
If the red orbs were used in conjunction with the sage origin power, then she might really have a chance, and yet she chose to reject it?
What did she reject just now?
It was her dream!
When was she so easily affected by emotions?
She looked at Lu Ze and bit her lips. She couldn’t bring herself to say she wanted it back. That would be embarra.s.sing for her.
After all, the energy from the red orbs was quite precious, but she already rejected the offer. If she wanted to take it back… what will Lu Ze think of her then?
And… if she used it, she would be robbing sister Jing’s and Hesha’s resources.
They had been treating her nicely. She was not an ungrateful person.
Just when she planned to give it up, Lu Ze smiled and handed the orbs to her. “Here, teacher Nangong and Hesha are very strong. This level of orb won’t be very useful to them. It doesn’t matter much if a few were missing.”
Lin Ling looked at the red orbs and felt stunned. Then, she looked up at Lu Ze with uncertainty. “Really?”.
Lu Ze smiled. “Of course.”
This fella only wanted confirmation, he naturally would not say no.
Lin Ling lowered her head to look at the orbs. Subsequently, she took them. With a soft voice, she said, “Ze, thank you.”
Hearing this, Lu Ze became slightly dazed. He looked at her in disbelief. She had a prideful and stubborn character, yet she actually thanked him?
Eventually, Lu Ze could not help but smirk at Lin Ling, who appeared to be embarra.s.sed. “A casual thank you would be enough?”
Lin Ling’s heart skipped a beat when she heard his words. “You… what do you want?”
Lu Ze grinned. Afterward, his smile turned evil. This made Lin Ling move backward and look at Lu Ze with vigilance.
“Hehe, of course, it’s to repeat what you said yesterday.”
Lin Ling: “…”
She put her hand over her forehead and forced herself to remain calm.
After she took a deep breath, she glared at Lu Ze. “I’m going back to cultivate!”
Then, Lin Ling stood up and went to her room.
She closed the door and leaned back on it. When she opened her mouth, she said softly, “Ze… Ze is really…”.
Halfway, Lin Ling’s face blushed, and she patted her face instantly. “How can I say this against my conscience? I must be infected by that idiot!”
She took a deep breath and calmed down her wavering feelings. Then, she began to cultivate.
Lu Ze sighed after seeing Lin Ling leave in anger.
It was a pity. He should’ve teased her for a while before giving it to her. However, if he did, she might launch a kamikaze attack on him.
Lu Ze stood up as well and went to his room to cultivate.
Although he died every day, his power increased very rapidly and that felt great.
His efforts paid off.
It took four days to reached Gula system from planet Venus. Lu Ze and Lin Ling only ate three meals a day in the living room. The rest of the time was spent on cultivation inside their rooms.
Four days later, the s.h.i.+p left warp travel. Not far ahead was a small solar system with three planets.
The inner two planets were crimson in color and appeared to have a very hot temperature. On the other hand, the outer planet was lush green in terms of color, and it looked as though it was filled with life.
On the very outskirts of the solar system, there were several asteroids. The traffic environment didn’t seem great.
However, this level of density was completely fine with autopilot. The s.h.i.+p darted in between the asteroids and soon came to that outermost planet.
It was planet Gula.
This planet had a diameter of 50,000 kilometers. It was much bigger than Earth, and 80% of it was land. Only a few large lakes were distributed all over the land. It seemed like an extremely beautiful planet.
However, there were patches of black spots on this gem, looking like impurities that marred its beauty.
Lu Ze frowned. “The damage done by the void beasts seems pretty serious.”
Lin Ling nodded. She was also a bit surprised at the scene.
This was their first time seeing void beasts.
Void beasts were cosmic beasts too, but they weren’t like some cosmic beasts that were amicable. They were like insectoids, which damaged every place they pa.s.sed by.
At this moment, a cold robotic voice could be heard in the room. “Captain, Jianwen Life Evolution scientific research team is requesting to communicate.” It seemed they contacted them first. Lu Ze then commanded, “Connect.”
A projection of a middle-aged man appeared in the living room. He had messy black hair, a pair of gla.s.ses, and white robes. He seemed to have a scholastic appearance.
As soon as he appeared, he lifted his gla.s.ses and smiled. “Are you Lu Ze and Lin Ling?”
Lu Ze nodded and smiled at him. “h.e.l.lo, Doctor Jian, I’m a first-year student at Federal University, Lu Ze.”
“h.e.l.lo, Doctor Jian, I’m a first-year student at Federal University, Lin Ling.”
Although Jian Wen wasn’t a young duke who fought on the battlefield, he was still worthy of respect as a scientist. If it wasn’t for these people, battles.h.i.+ps, weapons, and all sorts of gene serums would develop at an extremely slow pace.
Academia and martial arts were the foundations of the Federation.
Jian Wen looked at the two young faces and said, “Come on my s.h.i.+p first. We’ll lead the way for your s.h.i.+p.”
Afterward, a robotic voice came out from the s.p.a.ces.h.i.+p. “Captain, Jianwen Life Evolution scientific research team is requesting to lead the s.h.i.+p. Authorize or not?”
Lu Ze nodded. “Authorize.”
Accordingly, the flying s.h.i.+p flew toward the other side of the planet.
Moments later, Lu Ze and Lin Ling saw a thousand-meter long huge s.h.i.+p that stopped on the side of the planet.
This region of the planet was still lush green. For now, it was pretty safe.
After Lu Ze and Lin Ling entered the flying s.h.i.+p, they left their s.h.i.+p at a small s.p.a.ce station inside the large s.h.i.+p.
The moment they came out, Jian Wen walked over along with the scientists.
As he pushed his gla.s.ses, he asked in confusion, “Lu Ze and Lin Ling are freshmen at the Federal University?”
When the two heard Jian Wen’s doubts, they felt dumbfounded.
What kind of question was this? Didn’t they say it already?
Lu Ze nodded. “Yes.”
The scientists behind them exchanged glances with each other. Jian Wen frowned too. “The power of the strongest void beasts here is around aperture opening state with 600 apertures. Are you two confident?”
They didn’t have strong combat power as scientists, but they had cultivated martial arts. Martial arts cultivation could increase one’s life span and develop the brain to a certain degree.
Scientists might not be very strong, but they weren’t too weak either.Jian Wen had aperture opening state with 300 apertures, but since he hadn’t partic.i.p.ated in any battle, he might not even be able to beat a martial artist at the aperture opening state with 200 apertures.
Lu Ze and Lin Ling were still first-year students. When they accepted the mission, the data didn’t show their combat power. It just said they could complete the mission.
This made them worry. Not only there was a possibility that the two could not complete the task, but their safety was also not guaranteed at this point.
After all, the two could accept the mission and still hide their information. Obviously, this meant they were rare prodigies.
Lu Ze and Lin Ling glanced at each other with a strange look when they heard the words. These people didn’t know their power? Did that alcoholic keep their power hidden?
Usually, to get approved for missions, you need to show your approximate power, although it definitely won’t be the full extent of one’s power. One still had to let the mission publisher know they had sufficient power to complete the mission.
Lu Ze was very famous due to the incident on the 25th planet, but for these scientists, who stayed in these remote locations and remained immersed in their research, they probably wouldn’t be interested.
But even if they knew about that, they would probably be more worried, considering they did not know Lu Ze’s actual current strength at this moment. At that time, his power was only at the aperture opening state.
