Chapter 426 Now It’s Three Against Two?
The rewards of becoming a young duke were not bad, but to Lu Ze, even though the federal contribution points were quite attractive, he was currently able to support himself and was not lacking in resources. Hence, a s.p.a.ces.h.i.+p such as the Golden Whirl was more attractive to him.
Of course, this was only for Lu Ze, but not everyone was like him and had access to resources in the pocket hunting dimension.
For others, the federal contribution points were more precious.
Then, Lu Ze recalled something very important. He lifted his head, looked at Nangong Jing, and asked, “Oh right! Teacher Nangong, what about my young duke t.i.tle??” He wanted one that was fierce, cool, and awesome!
Nangong Jing’s mouth twitched a little. She recalled her young duke t.i.tle and was a little upset.
On the other hand, Qiuyue Hesha was in a good mood. Her red lips curved upwards, and she said languidly, “The appointment of a young duke is a joyous day for everyone; sometimes, we don’t even have a single young duke for a year, so we obviously need to allow ordinary people to partic.i.p.ate.”
“Things like the young duke’s t.i.tle is already an unwritten custom. When the Federation appoints a young duke, they will not be giving him or her the t.i.tle, but the public will give it by seeing what the young duke’s special characteristics are. For example, my young duke t.i.tle is City Charming Young Duke, obviously because of my good looks.” At this moment, she glanced askance at the expressionless Nangong Jing and grinned. “Like the female T-rex, her head is filled with muscles, so she’s Iron Fist Young Duke.”
Qiuyue Hesha laughed happily. She and Nangong Jing were evenly-matched in every aspect, and the only aspect she won in was their young duke t.i.tles!
Nangong Jing gritted her teeth, and her face was filled with dissatisfaction and bitterness.
This was the only thing that made her really upset!
She was just 18 years and 145 months young
Would it kill them to give her something like Fairy Young Duke or something?!
She actually lost to the vixen in this aspect.i.t was simply unacceptable!
Lu Ze looked at Qiuyue Hesha smiling gleefully, and his lips spasmed.
Wasn’t this woman called City Charming Young Duke because she used her seduction G.o.d art to destroy a city…?
This has nothing to do with her looks at all, right?
Although this woman was indeed very beautiful.
However, she’s a little too self-obsessed, huh?
Lu Ze didn’t know whether to laugh or cry.
Nevertheless, Lu Ze found the female T-rex’s young duke t.i.tle pretty good, it fits this woman’s characteristic.
Of course, seeing how upset Nangong Jing was, Lu Ze obviously didn’t say it out loud.
Maybe, since he almost died while fighting the void beast, Lu Ze’s desire to live was extremely strong during this period.
At the same time, a tinge of antic.i.p.ation flashed in Lu Ze’s eyes.
He wondered what his young duke t.i.tle would be.
However, if this was the case, then according to his performance of killing the planetary-cla.s.s void beast, he should get something like ‘Matchless Young Duke’ or ‘Invincible Young Duke’, right? Or ‘Blood Lightning Young Duke’ was also acceptable?
Maybe ‘Starkiller Young Duke’ or something?
By then, when he introduced himself to other people, he must say, “I am Matchless Young Duke, Lu Ze, may I get your name, please?”
He was grinning from ear to ear just thinking about it.
It seems pretty good?
It was quite pos.h.!.+
At the same time, he glanced at Lin Ling who seemed somewhat apprehensive but excited and wondered what Lin Ling’s young duke t.i.tle would be.
Just then, Lu Ze’s phone suddenly rang, and all three people in the room looked over immediately.
Lu Ze opened his phone to take a look, and it was Lu Li.
He was taken aback-Lu Li?
They usually used texts to communicate and hadn’t called each other before, so why was she calling all of a sudden?
After answering the call, Lu Li’s virtual image appeared in the air, and Alice was next to her.
The second both of them appeared, they looked worriedly at Lu Ze.
Lu Li immediately asked anxiously, “Big brother, are you alright? I saw the battle at Ena System, why did you go fight that planetary state…”
Alice looked at Lu Ze as well. “Senior, Lu Li and I were scared to death when we heard that you were fighting that planetary-cla.s.s void beast…”
Both of them were like machine guns the moment they appeared. They were planning to talk some sense into this guy. Lu Ze was always like that, always making everyone worry.
In the end, they merely spoke a few phrases when they noticed Nangong Jing and Qiuyue Hesha seated by the bed and Lin Ling standing at the side.
Nangong Jing, Qiuyue Hesha, and Lin Ling were all looking at Lu Li’s and Alice’s virtual images as well.
Lu Li and Alice didn’t bother about Lu Ze anymore and shut their mouths as they stared at those three people.
The place was extremely quiet. Lu Ze initially knew that these two people would definitely give him a good scolding, but he didn’t expect that they would actually meet Lin Ling and the rest?
Lu Ze felt that the atmosphere was a bit weird and looked at all five of them.
Thereafter, Lu Ze recalled that it seemed to be their first time meeting?
But he did mention them before.
With that thought, Lu Ze smiled and said, “Li, Alice, I don’t have to introduce Teacher Nangong, do I? This is Teacher Qiuyue, she’s also known as City Charming Young Duke. This is Lin Ling, she would be appointed as a young duke with me very soon.”
With that said, Lu Ze was somewhat pleased.
He was about to be appointed as a young duke!
He was planning to boast about it tonight to these two people, but in the end, they actually called.
Afterward, he looked at Qiuyue Hesha and Lin Ling. Lu Ze also introduced the both of them. “This is my little sister, Lu Li. Hmm… we’re not blood-related. I only found out that I was actually adopted a while ago.”
Then, he pointed at Alice. “This is my junior, Alice. She cooks very delicious food, you guys have tried it before, right?”.
After the introductions, Lu Ze nodded in satisfaction. “Alright, now all of you know each other?”
And at this moment, the atmosphere turned even more silent.
Lin Ling looked at Lu Li and Alice, her eyes slightly glistening. They weren’t blood-related?
So this junior was her? Lin Ling felt like she had heard about her before and found her familiar.
Qiuyue Hesha looked curiously at Lu Li and Alice. She didn’t have any thoughts about them.
These two girls seemed to have a special interest in little brother Lu Ze?
They were treating her like a love rival?
This was quite interesting, huh?
When Lu Li heard Lu Ze’s introduction, her smile became gentler, and she looked at Lu Ze with a deep gaze. Hehe… hehehehe…
Dumb Lu Ze… to think that she was so worried about him. He was doing very well?
Hm… it’s about time to give this fella a good scolding huh?
Subsequently, she glanced at Lin Ling and the rest before finally looking at Qiuyue Hesha.
Her intuition told her that the beautiful and seductive Qiuyue Hesha was the most dangerous character.
As for Nangong Jing, with a bottle of alcohol in her hand, she shouldn’t be the type that Lu Ze would like, right?
Hm… as for Lin Ling, she shouldn’t be a big threat, right?
As for Alice, she was beaming when Lu Ze praised her for her delicious cooking in front of so many people. It was awesome that senior Lu Ze liked her cooking!
She looked at these three people, and her eyes glistened.
Senior Lu Ze really had… more opponents now…
With that thought, Lu Li and she looked at one another.
It seemed like it was three against two now? The situation didn’t seem very good?
Both of them communicated with their eyes, then Lu Li and Alice’s faces revealed a hint of anger and worry as they glared at Lu Ze.
Lu Li’s eyes were watery as she said, “Big brother, how could put yourself in so much danger and fight with the void beast??” The bright smile on Alice’s face disappeared as well. “What happens if something happens to you, senior?”
As they spoke, both of their eyes reddened as they bit their lips, stared at Lu Ze, and didn’t continue speaking.
Lu Ze initially thought that Lu Li’s attention had gone to Lin Ling and the rest, so she didn’t care about that incident anymore, but in the end, he was stunned when he saw their reddened eyes.
After that, he recalled the day of the graduation and how Lu Li leaned on his chest with two hands grabbing the corners of his s.h.i.+rt.
Lu Ze: “…”
After some time of silence, Lu Ze said, “Sorry Li, Alice, I made both of you worried again.”
Lu Ze felt a little guilty.
There were so many people who cared about him. Mhm… if he could, he wouldn’t take a risk like that in the future.
However, sometimes, it’s not up to him.
Lu Li’s and Alice’s lips trembled slightly when they heard Lu Ze’s apology. Their eyes turned even redder—they were filled with tears.
Initially, those two people were merely acting, but now they really felt aggrieved, all thanks to this b.a.s.t.a.r.d!
After some moment of silence, both of them slowly recovered.
Then, Lu Li revealed that familiar warm smile of hers and said softly, “Big brother, since you know that you’re in the wrong, you’re only going to apologize?” Lu Ze looked at Lu Li’s smile, and his lips spasmed as he laughed dryly. “Li, what do you want then?”.
What’s this girl thinking?
Lu Ze always panicked whenever he saw this girl’s smile.
When Lu Li heard that, she glanced at Nangong Jing, Qiuyue Hesha, and Lin Ling in the room, then smiled and said gently, “Since this is the case, could you go out and play with me and Alice for a day when you’re free next time? You’re always cultivating and haven’t gone out to play for a long time, have you?”
Lu Ze went blank and looked at Lu Li in disbelief.This girl’s wish was actually so simple??
This was so unlike Lu Li!
Lu Ze nodded and smiled. “Sure.”
This was too simple!
He just needed to accompany her to play, right?
He guaranteed that they would have so much fun!
After Lu Ze agreed, Lu Li’s lips curved upward and revealed a smile.
They shall get together first then talk!
