Chapter 478 Bosses Are Bosses
Under the guidance of New Dawn, Lu Ze and Lin Ling walked through the white metal corridor and arrived at the door of the c.o.c.kpit.
The door opened, and the two proceeded inside curiously. The area inside wasn’t extremely vast. In fact, it was only about 30 square meters. There were two rows of eight metallic chairs. At the front of the two chairs, two control stations can be found.
Lu Ze excitedly walked over to the front. He wanted to see how it would feel to drive a s.p.a.ces.h.i.+p.
But soon, Lu Ze ended up confused. There were three rows of control b.u.t.tons and a few levers, as well as some devices that Lu Ze couldn’t completely recognize.
What was this?
How come he couldn’t recognize a single one?
Lu Ze’s mouth twitched. “New Dawn, do you know the functions of these b.u.t.tons?”
“Tell me, what is this?” Lu Ze pointed to a random b.u.t.ton and asked.
“This is the gravity device activation b.u.t.ton. It can change the gravity inside the s.h.i.+p.”
“What about this?”
“Spirit force suction device.”
Soon, Lu Ze asked about all the b.u.t.tons. He discovered that the b.u.t.tons on his s.h.i.+p were different from those on ordinary cargo s.h.i.+ps.
It was more simplified.
With Lu Ze’s improved comprehension, it was much easier to learn operating the s.p.a.ces.h.i.+p than driving a car back in the Earth era. In just two hours, Lu Ze had completely grasped how to drive this s.p.a.ces.h.i.+p.
He was going to drive it back home soon!
“Lin Ling, do you still have anything you need to pack? Where’s Yingying? Should we head off now?”
Lin Ling was a bit surprised. “Are you going to drive it yourself?”
Lu Ze grinned. “Of course! I’ve waited for this day for so long!” There was some hesitation in Lin Ling’s eyes. “Will it be okay? Would we explode?”
With their power, even if the s.h.i.+p exploded, they would be fine, but what about the money that would be wasted?!
Lu Ze said confidently, “It’s okay. New Dawn will a.s.sist me.”
During this time, New Dawn’s voice could be heard. “Sorry Master, you currently don’t have the right to pilot the s.h.i.+p. Unless there’s a special circ.u.mstance, you won’t be able to drive the s.h.i.+p for now.”
Lu Ze’s smile froze.
After a moment had pa.s.sed, he asked, “What would be considered a special circ.u.mstance?”
New Dawn answered, “When the smart a.s.sistance stops working and New Dawn can’t control the s.h.i.+p anymore.”
Lu Ze: “…”
“Then, how do you deactivate smart a.s.sistance?”
Lin Ling glared at Lu Ze. “What are you trying to do?”
Lu Ze replied innocently, “I’m asking, just in case.”
Lin Ling stared at Lu Ze for a few seconds before she dragged him outside. “Before you have the right to drive, don’t come here again!” She was scared Lu Ze would act like an idiot and end up damaging the s.h.i.+p. “Okay, I know, I know. Stop dragging me away.”
Lu Ze, who felt lifeless, was pulled out of the c.o.c.kpit. It was as though his pa.s.sion was also shut down
when the door was slammed shut.
Several students gathered outside the s.h.i.+p. The proliferation of the news regarding the appearance of a new private s.h.i.+p was a bit fast. Since the first-year students lived close to each other, everyone came over together. Numerous higher-year students arrived as well.
They gawked at the New Dawn and Spirit Eye with s.h.i.+ning eyes.
“This is Lu Ze’s and Lin Ling’s private s.h.i.+p, right? My aunt’s neighbor’s son is a young duke too. I heard every young duke will receive a private s.h.i.+p as a reward.”
“It’s not an ordinary private s.h.i.+p either. It’s said that young duke s.h.i.+ps could rival planetary states in many aspects,” one person added.
“Wow, that’s amazing!”
They were all first-year students.
Why was the difference this huge?
“By the way, why is Lu Ze’s s.h.i.+p so much bigger than Lin Ling’s? Lin Ling’s s.h.i.+p seems to have the same size as other young duke’s.”
“Are you dumb? Lu Ze was appointed as Monarch of the New Dawn. How could it be the same? Of course, his s.h.i.+p would be better in terms of quality.”
“Would Lu Ze be willing to take someone on board?” a pretty-looking girl asked.
Xuan Yuqi and the others glanced at her.
Would Lu Ze be someone as thirsty as that?
During this time, they chanced upon the scene of Lin Ling dragging the lifeless Lu Ze out.
When everyone saw Lu Ze’s expression, they felt dumbfounded.
What was this expression?
Were there any problems with the s.h.i.+p?
Was he not satisfied with it?
No wonder he was the Monarch of the New Dawn. If they had the chance to own an ordinary young duke s.h.i.+p, they would be overjoyed.
Bosses were bosses indeed.
Meanwhile, Lu Ze was stunned to see the ma.s.s of people gathered outside.
What were these guys doing?
He looked at the s.h.i.+p behind him and realized the answer.
Right at this minute, Ye Mu and the rest walked over. Ian asked worriedly, “Ze, are you alright? You don’t seem to be well?”
Lu Ze forced out a smile. “It’s fine.”
“Junior Lu Ze, are you not happy with this s.h.i.+p?”
Lu Ze and Lin Ling turned around and looked at the people approaching them.
“Seniors Margaret and Li Qingyun, you guys are here too.”
Lu Ze hadn’t seen them for a long while.
With a somewhat complicated tone, Margaret lamented, “I’m really not a good senior. Junior has already become a young duke, and yet, I’m still far from it.”
Lu Ze evaluated her chi. It was already at the aperture opening state with 300 apertures. This level of progress should be considered extremely fast already.
Li Qingyun had 300 apertures as well.
Lu Ze smiled. “Senior Margaret is progressing very fast. You will become a young duke soon.”
Base on her speed and age, she should be able to have a mortal evolution state combat power before turning 30. By then, if she had enough contributions, she could become a young duke.
Of course, such power was just average among young dukes.
Margaret just smiled. She didn’t bring up the subject anymore. “Let’s not talk about that. Is our Monarch of the New Dawn not satisfied with a s.h.i.+p this big? If it’s you, then you can probably request something else.”
Lu Ze’s mouth twitched. “No, the s.h.i.+p is better than I imagined.”
Lu Ze was truly satisfied with the s.h.i.+p. The only issue right now was that he couldn’t drive it himself. Still, he couldn’t really say that in front of all these people.
Otherwise, his reputation would be ruined.Hearing this, everyone became more confused. However, since Lu Ze didn’t want to say it, then no one could force him either.
Currently, the students were about to leave. Li Qingyun said, “If you’re free to visit Weimu System, you must come and find me. I’ll treat you around.”
Lu Ze nodded. “Of course.”
Margaret nodded and smiled as well. “We’ll be going first.”
Ian and the rest bid their farewells to Lu Ze too. Their families were waiting outside the school.
Soon, the dorms became very quiet. Most of the students had left.
Lu Ze and Lin Ling glanced at each other.
Lu Ze smiled. “Take Yingying and let’s go back too.”
