Chapter 623 He Felt He Was Looked Down On
Lu Ze’s eyes suddenly lit up.
He remembered something. The alcoholic’s and fox demon’s combat power was only at level three of the planetary state?
Wasn’t he about to catch up to them then?
Great! Lu Ze smiled. He had always been bullied by these two. Once he surpa.s.sed them, he would bully them back! He put away the lightning and got off the bed. Then, he opened the door and saw Nangong Jing there. Qiuyue Hesha and Lin Ling were also looking over curiously. Nangong Jing asked, “Are you okay?” Lu Ze smiled. “It’s nothing, I just had a little sudden enlightenment. My cultivation level accidentally reached level five of the mortal evolution state.”
Their mouths twitched.
Lin Ling’s heart got pierced. She was still a level-three mortal evolution state, but Lu Ze was already a level-five mortal evolution state. Could she still catch up to him?
Meanwhile, Qiuyue Hesha’s and Nangong Jing’s heart skipped a beat. Their progress hadn’t been slow, but Lu Ze’s regular cultivation speed was already terrifying. Now that his cultivation level made a breakthrough, his combat power wouldn’t just be increasing by one level. Nangong Jing was a little worried. Was this guy catching up to her? During this time, Lu Ze’s phone rang. It was Lin Kuang’s message. This guy had been cultivating the entire time until now.
He was cultivating with his life too.
Lu Ze smiled. “Their cultivation has ended. I told them to wait for us at Boss Zhu’s place. Let’s go over. I wonder just how tasty the Zhihuo Shooting Star is?”
Lin Ling and the others rolled their eyes.
In a suite of some hotel, Luo Bingqing and his group were sitting in the foyer. Lin Kuang placed his phone down and said, “Lu Ze told us to go to Boss Zhu’s place.”
The others glanced at each other. Jack asked, “Don’t tell me that kid already got the Zhihuo Bird’s egg?”
Derrick gulped his saliva. “… No way. How many days has it been?”
Luo Bingqing answered, “Let’s go see. Today can be a rest day.” The others nodded. “We’ve been doing missions for ten days in a row. We should take a rest, indeed.”
“Let’s go then.” The four of them left accordingly.
Zhihuo Little Restaurant.
Lu Ze and his team happened to see Luo Bingqing’s group at the same time. In turn, Luo Bingqing and the rest became dumbfounded due to Lu Ze. For some reason, they felt Lu Ze got stronger again. They greeted each other and went into the restaurant.
Boss Zhu saw people coming in. He glanced at them and felt stunned when he saw it was Lu Ze.
He didn’t get up and just smiled. “Yo, Lu Ze, I heard you got quite some rewards from your recent mission. Are you here to have a good meal?”
All the other customers looked over. Lu Ze bringing back an asteroid yesterday had already gone viral. Plus, if Lu Ze brought back a Zhihuo Egg, he could eat the Zhihuo Shooting Star.
Everyone was curious.
Lu Ze smiled. “Boss Zhu, I came to ask you to cook Zhihuo Shooting Star.” “Oh, that’s easy…” Boss Zhu smiled. He didn’t react in time. Then, he fell silent. Not just him, everyone else was dazed too.
All the people looked at Lu Ze like he was a ghost.
Lu Ze wanted to laugh. Nangong Jing and the others saw how happy Lu Ze was and rolled their eyes.
They were expecting this sort of reaction.
Lu Ze coughed and said, “Boss Zhu, your promise still counts, right?”
Boss Zhu recovered from his shock and got up from his chair. He looked deeply at Lu Ze and then nodded. “My, Zhu Xinyi’s, words always count.”
Thereafter, he laughed. “You’re indeed the Monarch of the New Dawn. Amazing! You got Zhihuo Bird Egg with your cultivation level being just a mortal evolution state. You’re the first. Is it a level-one planetary state? That would be quite nice for you guys but not as good for young duke Nangong and Qiuyue.” At this juncture, Lu Ze took out three eggs, one large and two small.
The red jade eggs carried this scorching chi. As soon as it was taken out, the restaurant’s temperature soared up.
“Oh s.h.i.+t?! Three?” someone exclaimed.
“It’s not just three! Look at that big egg! That’s definitely a high-level Zhihuo Bird Egg!”
“How did Monarch of the New Dawn do it??” Everyone looked strangely at Lu Ze.
Was this guy really a G.o.d? Boss Zhu’s eyes almost popped out by looking at that large egg. “Level-five planetary state egg?? How did you get it, kid?” “Level-five planetary state?!” “What a joke! A level-five planetary state Zhihuo Bird’s combat power should be near level seven of the planetary state.”
This egg was rare even considering all the previous times of the Zhihuo Shooting Star event.
Lu Ze smiled. “Secret.”
Boss Zhu knew he asked too much. Everyone had their secrets after all. He was just too shocked. That’s why he asked.
He smiled. “Just wait, I’ll cook it now.” Lu Ze showed a hopeful look.
Suddenly, he thought of something and said, “Oh, and this too. Do you think you can cook this?”
He took out a few meter tall body. It was the level-one planetary state Zhihuo Bird’s body.
Boss Zhu was completely dazed upon seeing this Zhihuo Bird’s body. “Oh s.h.i.+t?! Zhi… Zhihuo Bird!” “He could even get the body of Zhihuo Bird? This is a monster?!”
“This is the third time that a Zhihuo Body appeared, isn’t it?”
“Seems to be. The previous two times were acquired by a level-nine planetary state.”
“Zhi… Zhihuo Bird?” Boss Zhu’s face shook. He never asked Lu Ze to kill a Zhihuo Bird. It was much harder than getting the egg after all. Yet, he saw the Zhihuo Bird’s body here?!
He looked at Lu Ze and then at Nangong Jing and Qiuyue Hesha. “You two killed it?”
Qiuyue Hesha shook her head. “Little brother Lu Ze did it.”
Boss Zhu’s eyes bulged. “Him? How is that possible?!”
Lu Ze’s mouth twitched. He felt he was looked down on.
So what if he was the one who killed it? Lu Ze asked again, “Can this be cooked?”
Boss Zhu grinned. “Yes! Spirit food made with Zhihuo Bird’s body would provide a sliver of a higher chance of acquiring fire G.o.d art.”
