Chapter 541 I Don’t Have a Son Like You
In the hall of the s.p.a.ces.h.i.+p, there were already a number of people gathered there, including Luo Bingqing, Li Kuang, Derrick, Jack, and the others.
When Lu Ze and the rest arrived, they immediately caught everyone’s attention.
After all, Nangong Jing, Qiuyue Hesha, and Lu Ze were considered the strongest trio among the young dukes present.
Derrick smiled when he saw the few people walking in. “Lu Ze, Nangong, Qiuyue, why did you guys only come out now? We’ll be reaching Shenwu City very soon.”
During these few days, Derrick had thought things through. At first, Qiuyue Hesha was not interested in him at all, and now with Lu Ze around, he thought long and hard, which led him to realize that he didn’t have a choice but to give up.
When Lu Ze heard that, he recalled the weird atmosphere, and his mouth twitched.
Hence, Lu Ze laughed. “We just finished cultivating.”
Hearing that, Derrick smiled. “No wonder you’re so strong. It seems like it isn’t just because you’re gifted, you’re also very hardworking.” Lu Ze let out a reserved smile. “Average, average. Everyone’s very hardworking too.”
Praising him again, Lu Ze was really embarra.s.sed.
Just then, Nangong Jing looked at Jack and Luo Bingqing, who had weird expressions on their faces, and asked out of curiosity, “Old Luo, Jack, what’s wrong?”
Jack glanced at Nangong Jing and grinned. “Do you remember those three Black Smoke Race?” Nangong Jing nodded slightly and looked at Jack and Luo Bingqing. “I remember.”
About the previous evolved Insectoid Race, Lu Ze and the rest were the first to find out initially. At that time, Nangong Jing and Qiuyue Hesha asked Jack and the other two people, who were closest to the secret base, to investigate.
Lu Ze and the others looked over upon hearing what Jack said. They were clearly interested with regard to the Black Smoke Race.
They were the ones behind the insectoid tide.
Jack laughed. “I heard that the Black Smoke Race would appear in the void universe, outside of the void border occasionally. I think it’s time to take revenge.” A faint iciness appeared all over Luo Bingqing’s body as well.
He was very mad. Previously, he was plotted against by the Black Smoke Race, and he was in a very bad mood now. Just in time, his ice G.o.d art had transformed, and he really hoped to meet those few Black Smoke Race people in the void universe. Jack’s words had piqued the interest of Li Kuang and the others too.
At this moment, Mo Xie’s lips curved upwards and revealed a cunning smile. “Previously, I heard that you guys were taken advantage of when all of you went to look into the Soul Harvesting Alliance? Heh, with your strength, it’s a little too weak.”
Hearing Mo Xie’s disdainful remarks, a sword flash flickered in Jack’s eyes as he stared at Mo Xie indifferently. “What? You really think that you’re amazing just because you went to the Milky Way? Do you want a challenge?”
Even Jack was frowning.
Jack was also one of them who was plotted against.
Mo Xie clearly didn’t respect them. Mo Xie’s gaze swept across the three people and scoffed. “Even if you guys had benefited from the bestowing of the t.i.tle of young dukes’ ceremony, all of you are still no match for me.”
Chi Xiaomo smiled as well. “Honestly speaking, although everyone is a prodigy in the Federation, it’s better to not take yourself so seriously even if you’re from the Milky Way, or you may die quite easily.”
Bernie smiled gently. “Xiaomo may sound harsh, but this is an advice.”
Lu Ze looked at the daggers drawn at both sides and didn’t choose to help.
As young dukes, everyone was ambitious. Unless you’re like the alcoholic or the vixen and completely surpa.s.sed them. Otherwise, there was no way for them to be satisfied.
However, a compet.i.tion wasn’t completely a bad thing.
Luo Bingqing said plainly, “Since this is the case, we’ll let this experience speak for itself.”
Hearing the conversation between these few people, Li Kuang’s eyes were burning with motivation and he grinned. “Count me in for such an interesting event.”
Even Dale, Luo Yisi, and Xuan Yuji had the desire to fight in their eyes.
As young dukes, it obviously didn’t matter whether you were a female or male—n.o.body wanted to be lagging behind.
Luo Bingqing and the others were the top young dukes in the Federation, and not everyone was qualified to be in compet.i.tion with them. The remaining 70 over young dukes had their own little circles, and naturally had both cooperative and compet.i.tive relations between themselves.
In just a moment, there was a surge in the desire to fight in the hall.
Lu Ze scratched his head when he witnessed this scene.
Why does it feel like everyone was a little emotional?
Was he the only one who was more obedient?
He glanced sideways at Nangong Jing and Qiuyue Hesha and realized that both of them were already looking at one another.
Even Lin Ling, Lu Li, and Alice had the desire to fight.
Lu Ze couldn’t help shaking his head-he was still the most obedient one. Just then, someone exclaimed, “Look outside!”
Everyone turned to look outside the window immediately.
Limitless darkness surrounded the void border, and the celestial bodies in this cosmic realm were much lesser than the Milky Way.
At this moment, in that dark universe, there was a gigantic planet floating.
The entire surface of the planet was covered in black alloy, and there were fleets and solo s.p.a.ces.h.i.+ps on that planet—it was bustling with activity.
At the far ends of this planet, Lu Ze could vaguely see a long line of independent planets. The long line goes into the distance until it disappeared.
There was silence in the hall, and everyone was looking at the majestic planet before them, as well as that long line that extended into the unknown.
A long while later, Nangong Jing sighed. “This is the void border that our Federation had spent over thousands of years building.”
All the independent planets on the long line were moved over by prodigies of the human race to this area, and each planet was the encampment of the Shenwu military.
The Shenwu military patrolled the area day and night, guarding the planet against being invaded.
Whether it was the void beasts in the void universe, the s.p.a.ce pirates who made a living from robbing, or hostile races that have ill intentions towards the human race, all the threats would be eliminated before reaching the border.
It was all because of the protection of the Shenwu military that the inner region of the Federation could maintain its peace.
Many young dukes sighed in admiration as well and had complex emotions.
Even in the interstellar era, it was still a miracle that the human race could build a Federal territory in a short span of a few thousand years.
The s.p.a.ces.h.i.+p flew across, and they entered that gigantic planet.
There were a large number of s.p.a.ce stations on the planet. Some were for military use while others were for adventure squads.
After all, the adventure squads searching for resources at the void border would also recondition at the void border.
Of course, these adventure squads were not only made up of young dukes, there were also adventure squads formed by large financial groups or family clans, even some like-minded prodigies. Compared to those strong adventure squads who had been to the Milky Way, these adventure squads were much weaker, and they could only look for resources near the void border. The universe was simply too vast. Although this void universe was relatively smaller, it would still take 2 million lightyears to travel to the system closest to the Milky Way.
Between the 2 million lightyears, there were some dwarf galaxies that were no more than 10,000 light-years in diameter, and there may also be a variety of other planets, but this was huge enough.
One must know that the entire Milky Way was only 100,000 lightyears in diameter.
This piece of the void universe had a diameter of 20 Milky Ways.
This was only a small area outside of the Milky
It was apparent how vast the universe was
And those weaker adventure squads could only look for resources at nearby areas where there were guards stationed there. They wouldn’t dare to venture deep into the void universe; otherwise, they might not be able to make it back.
The s.p.a.ces.h.i.+p that Lu Ze and the others were on stopped at a military-use s.p.a.ce station.
The doors of the s.p.a.ces.h.i.+p opened, and Lu Ze and the others walked out.
This planet had clearly gone through special treatment; both the air quality and amount of gravity were very comfortable. At this moment, there was already someone waiting for Lu Ze and the rest outside of the s.p.a.ces.h.i.+p.
It was a beautiful lady with long black hair, and she was wearing silver battle armor, making her look very elegant.
However, Lu Ze wondered why he couldn’t sense this woman’s aura at all?
Could it be that this lady was very strong?
Just as Lu Ze was deep in his thoughts, Nangong Jing’s eyes widened. She exclaimed in surprise, “Mom? What are you doing here?”
Lu Ze looked at the silver-armored lady, then turned to the surprised Nangong Jing.
This silver-armored lady was actually the alcoholic’s mother?
No wonder he couldn’t sense her cultivation at all. The alcoholic’s mother must be extremely strong, right?
According to her family history, this silver-armored lady was probably a star level being??
Lu Ze glanced at the silver-armored woman and was a little terrified. He wondered whether the alcoholic’s mother would be easy to get along with.
Not only Lu Ze, even Lin Ling and a large number of young dukes were looking at the silver-armored lady and Nangong Jing. They clearly didn’t expect that Nangong Jing’s mother would be the one to receive them.
Only Qiuyue Hesha, Luo Bingqing, and the others were not surprised.
It was clear that they knew who this silver-armored lady was.
The silver-armored lady glanced at Lu Ze and said with her guard up, “Don’t simply greet me like that, I don’t have a son like you.”
Lu Ze: “???”
Lu Ze was stunned as he looked at the silver-armored lady, then he recalled that he repeated after the alcoholic as he was quite surprised just now.
So this woman really took what he said seriously??
Lu Ze looked at how the silver-armored lady had her guard up and felt complicated.
Was this considered being taken advantage of?
Or was I the one who took advantage?
Nangong Jing rolled her eyes at Lu Ze and went forward. “Mom, why are you here?”
The silver-armored lady chuckled and looked at Nangong Jing. “I heard that my Jing Jing will be here, so I applied for leave to come over.”
Nangong Jing was speechless. As a star level being, her mother simply took leave whenever she wanted to- just how wilful was she, huh?
“Alright, I’ll bring you guys to Shenwu City and tell you guys about the situation at the void border.”
As she spoke, the silver-armored lady pulled Nangong Jing and flew up in the sky while Lu Ze and the others looked at one another, and followed them.
In the air, Lu Ze looked at the back view of the silver-armored lady and complained.
He felt that the alcoholic’s mom was just as unreliable as the alcoholic.
This wasn’t hereditary, is it?
Just then, the silver-armored woman turned to look at Lu Ze and asked curiously, “You’re Lu Ze?”
Lu Ze was taken aback. He didn’t expect that the alcoholic’s mother would recognize him?
He nodded slightly and smiled. “I am Lu Ze. h.e.l.lo, aunty.”
The silver-armored lady looked at Lu Ze, then nodded. “No wonder you called me ‘Mom’.”
Lu Ze: “???”
What do you mean??
I called out only because I was very surprised ah?!
Just at this moment, the silver-armored woman opened her mouth like she wanted to say something, but Nangong Jing immediately covered her mouth and said, “Don’t think too much! It’s not what you think!” Nangong Jing obviously knew her own mother best. If she didn’t cover her mother’s mouth, who knew what she would say next?
The silver-armored woman rolled her eyes at Nangong Jing and nodded before Nangong Jing finally released her hand. After that, she smiled and said, I’m Zuoqiu Xunshuang, you may call me Aunty Zuoqiu.”
