Chapter 442 Unfair
Seeing Yingying’s aggrieved expression, Lin Ling carried the girl and said, “Good Yingying, I’ll go make some food for you, alright?”
Yingying’s eyes lit up, and her dissatisfied look was soon washed away from her face. Actually, she opened her deep blue eyes wide as she directed her hopeful gaze at Lin Ling. “Really?”
“Mhm.” Lin Ling smiled.
Then, everyone went downstairs.
Lin Ling went into the kitchen to cook. Nangong Jing and Qiuyue Hesha relaxed on the couch while Yingying sat between them and started watching cartoons on the computer.
Lu Ze smiled. They didn’t expect Yingying to wake up this time, but they were happy.
The only regret Lu Ze had was that this little guy didn’t wake up a few days earlier. Otherwise, she probably could’ve eaten that wormhole in one gulp.
Lu Ze wanted to laugh. Would a wormhole suit her tastes?
Soon, the food was ready. Lin Ling brought out several dishes that were enough to fill the entire dining table.
“Time to eat.”
Yingying immediately turned off the computer and looked up. When she saw the table filled with food, her eyes s.h.i.+ned with antic.i.p.ation. “Wow, amazing!”
She instantly appeared before the table and gave her personal blue and white bowl to Lin Ling.
With excitement, Yingying exclaimed, “Sister Ling! I want to eat more! Fill it up!”
Lin Ling smiled as she scooped food for Yingying
At this moment, Lu Ze and the rest walked over. Lu Ze’s eyes lit up after seeing this table of food too. He also pa.s.sed his bowl over. “Lin Ling, I want to eat more too! Fill it up!”
Nangong Jing grinned. “Lin Ling, me too!” Qiuyue Hesha said, “Me too.” Lin Ling said plainly, “Do it yourself! How old are you?”
Lin Ling was too unfair. They could only fill their bowls by themselves.
Dinner took an hour. Everyone ate quite a lot, especially Yingying. She managed to finish five bowls. After dinner, everyone sat on the safe leisurely. Nangong Jing suddenly thought of something and asked, “By the way, Ze, you guys are getting appointed the day after tomorrow. Let’s go to Earth tomorrow?”
Lu Ze and Lin Ling were slightly taken aback. Being appointed as a young duke was the greatest honor for the young generations of the Federation. Every young duke serves as the supporting pillar of the Federation. If they didn’t die, then they were bound to reach the planetary state or even star state.
Up until now, all the star states were previously young dukes. Uncle Merlin was known as “Pale Flame Young Duke” before.
Since it was their turn right now, then naturally, they were quite excited.
Lu Ze smiled and nodded. “Mhm, okay.” At the same time, Lu Ze felt a bit complicated. Earth. How long had he not seen it?
Almost half a year!
He could go visit Earth tomorrow?
He had been so busy at Dawn System that he almost forgot this matter.
Yingying also looked up and asked, “Lu Ze, you guys are going to Earth?”
Lu Ze nodded and rubbed Yingying’s head. “Mhm, Yingying do you want to come with us?”
Yingying immediately answered, “Yes!”
After all, Earth was the first place she came across when she first woke up. Essentially, it was her birthplace. Moreover, her first friend even lived on that planet too. Of course, she also wanted to return and see.
Qiuyue Hesha smiled. “You guys don’t need to prepare anything for the ceremony. We can go play around on Earth first tomorrow.”
Nangong Jing took a sip of wine and smiled as well. “Then, everyone should go together.”
After the decision was settled, Lu Ze and Lin Ling went back to their dorms. On the other hand, Yingying was left in the care of Qiuyue Hesha-with a plan to sleep together for the night.
At this moment, it was dark. The two suns were sinking below the horizon. The orange sunlight dyed the clouds red. It was ethereal and beautiful.
Lu Ze and Lin Ling flew toward the dorms of the elite cla.s.s.
Quite some students were coming back from missions at this time, and they saw Lu Ze and Lin Ling flying in the air. In response, the eyes of the onlookers widened while bearing a strange expression. As might be expected, Lu Ze and Lin Ling noticed their weird glances. Lu Ze then asked, “What happened to them?” Lin Ling shook her head. “They probably know that we’re going to be appointed as young dukes.”
It’s all over the news now.
Lu Ze and Lin Ling didn’t mind. They came to their houses. As soon as they landed, few people dashed out of the nearby houses and soon surrounded them.
“Ze! Lin Ling! You guys are finally back!” Ye Mu’s familiar voice could be heard.
Next to them were Ian, Xavier, Xuan Yuqi, Tianyuan Qianhua, and Jessica. Lu Ze scratched his head. “What’s going on?” Hearing this question, Tianyuan Qianhua’s eyed widened in disbelief. “What’s going on? Don’t you guys know?”
Ian looked up at Lu Ze with admiration and a familiar blush on his face. “Ze, you guys are going to get appointed as young dukes. You’re really amazing!”
Lu Ze’s mouth twitched. “Cough… you guys know already?”
Xuan Yuqi rolled her eyes and said, “The entire Federation knows, okay? Congratulations…”
On the side, Jessica was a bit envious. “Would we have the chance to become young dukes…”
Even though they were above average among the elite cla.s.s of Federal University, they still had an extremely small chance to become young dukes.
Ye Mu exclaimed, “d.a.m.n it! Lu Ze, you make people too envious. Not only you became young duke, but even teacher Nangong and Qiuyue couldn’t also escape your palms? I thought it was just Lin Ling!”
Before he could complete it, he was kicked into the lake by Lin Ling.
The atmosphere turned awkward. How many times did this happen? Lu Ze admired this guy. This guy knew how to die more than him!
It was a good thing that both the alcoholic and fox demon weren’t here.
At this moment, Lu Ze noticed that Xavier’s face was a bit pale and his chi appeared to be weak. As such, he asked in confusion, “Xavier, are you injured?”
Xavier scratched his head. “I encountered an opponent during this mission and received some injuries.”
Lu Ze said, “You guys went to Gracious System this time too, right?”
Xuan Yuqi explained, “Mhm, we also received the mission to annihilate the Eternal Life Palace. We encountered a few core martial state members of Eternal Life Palace. Luckily, we had Xavier’s black star body G.o.d art to help us block a lot of attacks.”Ye Mu crawled out of the lake and said, “This time was quite dangerous indeed.”
Lu Ze looked at them and fell silent. He was wondering whether he should give them the red orbs now. He was originally planning that when he was strong enough to the point of not needing secret protection, then he would reveal his G.o.d art to old man Nangong. Thereafter, he would also hand out some of his...o...b.. to the old man, as well as Ye Mu and the rest.
But now, they were already encountering dangerous situations during their missions. He didn’t want anything to happen to them.
Lin Ling knew what Lu Ze was thinking. She smiled at Ye Mu and everyone. “By the way, our contribution was huge this time. The reward would be huge too. We’re about to be young dukes too, so we probably can’t even use our academic credits. I’ll lend you five million academic credits. Similar to the stipulations made by Lu Ze previously, you need to pay me the interest.”
Lu Ze felt dumbfounded and looked at Lin Ling. Lin Ling smiled back at him.
Lu Ze: “…”
He couldn’t resist smiling as well. Lin Ling’s choice was good. The reason Ye Mu and the rest partic.i.p.ated in missions were for academic credits and resources. With five million academic credits, they probably didn’t need to do any missions for the next year.
A year later, he might be able to reach the planetary state? By then, he would be strong enough. Thinking about this, Lu Ze grinned. “Then, I’ll lend you guys five million too.”
