Chapter 619 Without Comparison, There’s No Injury
Inside the New Dawn, a powerful middle-aged man appeared.
He looked at the group and said, “I’m the captain of the defense force at planet Zhihuo, Zhang Yugang. I will need to investigate the… asteroid you brought back.”
Lu Ze smiled. “Sure, thank you, Captain Zhang. This asteroid is actually a blade demon base in disguise. There’s still blade demon captives inside. They have been subjugated. Don’t be alarmed when you see them.”
Lu Ze’s words made Zhang Yugang and the men on the side stunned.
Small blade demon base and blade demon captives?
Lu Ze explained further, “Aren’t there signs of blade demons appearing in the Zhihuo System? We took that mission.”
Zhang Yugang’s eyes widened. It was that Blade Demon Mission? d.a.m.n it, they didn’t tell him.
Before he could think much, his face turned serious. “Okay, Monarch of the New Dawn, young dukes. Thank you for your cooperation.”
Lu Ze smiled and nodded.
Then, Zhang Yugang led the Shenwu Army into the base.
They were very shocked when they saw the subjugated level-two and level-three planetary state blade demons.
Zhang Yugang’s a.s.sistant said in a dazed manner, “Weren’t there people sent to find the blade demons? They didn’t find it at the time. How long has the Monarch of the New Dawn been here? He found it already?”
Zhang Yugang shook his head. “How am I supposed to know? Hurry up and check if there are any problems here.” “Yes!”
Half an hour later, Zhang Yugang checked the entire base thoroughly.
After ensuring there were no problems, the Shenwu Army went back to their own s.h.i.+p, and Zhang Yugang contacted Lu Ze again. He looked at the four in disbelief and said, “This asteroid is fine now. You’re indeed the Monarch of the New Dawn and young dukes. You did such a huge mission as soon as you arrived.”
“I’ll take you guys back to the stationed grounds. And, the mission handover…”
Lu Ze said, “We’ll do it immediately once we get back. This wave of blade demons seems to have some special purpose. I hope there’s a high-level coming over for the handover.”
Zhang Yugang thought for a moment and nodded. “I’ll try to arrange that for you.”
“Thank you, Captain Zhang.”
On planet Zhihuo, Luo Bingqing, Lin Kuang, Jack, and Derrick just finished their fertilizing mission. Their chi was much better than a few days ago.
Jack sighed. “After all these days, we’re finally used to those flames.”
Derrick grinned. “In that case, we can do missions and earn rewards faster.”
Luo Bingqing’s face wasn’t as pale as before. He nodded plainly. “Mhm, speed up. Merit points like these are hard to get.”
Lin Kuang agreed. “Although it’s tiring, it’s not dangerous. Mo Xie and the others almost died from the mission yesterday, didn’t they? Louisa and her team also encountered some danger.” Everyone fell silent. During this time, their squad was the safest. The other two squads failed their missions and didn’t even get enough Shenwu merit points as them.
Jack shook his head. “After seeing Lu Ze and his group a few days ago, I almost lost my confidence. But compared to Daphne and the rest, I feel that we’re not bad.”
Everyone’s mouth twitched, including Luo Bingqing.
Everyone liked to compete. Without compet.i.tion, there would be no improvement.
At this moment, an exclamation caught their attention.
“Oh s.h.i.+t, look in the sky. What is that? Asteroid?”
The four of them looked up. A dark-gray asteroid was nearing the planet.
Many adventurers came out to watch. Of course, they weren’t worried at all. It was just an asteroid.
With most of them being planetary states, they could easily blow up such asteroids.
Even if the planet exploded, they wouldn’t die as long as they fled fast enough.
Right now, they saw the Shenwu Army s.h.i.+p and a golden s.h.i.+p flying before the asteroid. Their faces looked strange.
“That’s the Shenwu Army. Why did they bring an asteroid back?”
“Is there some rare mine in this asteroid, so they brought back the entire asteroid?”
“But… that golden s.h.i.+p looks familiar?”
“Who does it belong to?”
“Did this adventure squad find some rare resource? They would be earning huge!”
Everyone’s eyes went red at this possibility.
If the mine was precious enough, it could be worth over 10,000 Shenwu merit points!
Derrick exclaimed, “Oh s.h.i.+t, isn’t that Lu Ze’s s.h.i.+p?”
The other three were dumbfounded. They had never expected Lu Ze’s s.h.i.+p would be before this asteroid.
Jack was speechless. “Before I thought we were okay… but now…”
Lin Kuang’s mouth twitched.
Derrick coughed. “I think we should just be happy. There’s no point in competing, isn’t
Those people heard Derrick’s remarks. “So that’s Monarch of the New Dawn’s s.h.i.+p. No wonder it felt familiar. He only came here a few days ago. Then, he seemed to have gone to do missions.”
“By the way, didn’t Boss Zhu give Monarch of the New Dawn a Zhihuo Shooting Star spot? Do you think Monarch of the New Dawn got a Zhihuo Bird’s egg these few days?”
Everyone became immediately interested in this.
The story between Boss Zhu and Lu Ze spread through the entire solar system. Actually, it even went beyond that.
After all, the Zhihuo Shooting Star spot every five years was intensely fought over in the entire human-controlled region.
“Are you dumb? Lu Ze is Monarch of the New Dawn. He’s not some G.o.d. It hadn’t even been ten days. Where would he get the egg from?”
A powerful level-five planetary state man made an a.n.a.lysis. “I feel it’s not too likely as well. Perhaps three years later, when it’s five years again, Lu Ze can buy the egg from somewhere else, or when he reaches the planetary state, I believe he can get the eggs. His cultivation level now is too low. His combat power is probably only on par with a level-one planetary state Zhihuo Bird?” “That’s right.”
Everyone sighed. “But if he brought back this asteroid, their earnings would be insane.”
All the people were envious.
Luo Bingqing said plainly, “Let’s go back first. If Lu Ze and the others are free, they would contact us.”
Jack’s eyes flashed with golden light. “Go back and cultivate!”
They all felt pressured due to Lu Ze.
Lu Ze’s New Dawn had come to planet Zhihuo. The asteroid was too large to be brought to the stationed grounds, so the s.h.i.+p took the two to a barren open field.
Qiuyue Hesha ordered the blade demons to remove the rock sh.e.l.l and only leave the base. Despite so, the base was still over ten kilometers long.
Zhang Yugang and the rest felt strange upon seeing blade demons work so joyously.
So when did blade demons do things for the human race so happily? They were probably fake blade demons.
