Chapter 656 Looks Like Me Back in the Days
Nangong Jing and the others just finished buying the Martial G.o.d Armor Set when Lu Ze’s phone suddenly rang. Nangong Jing threw it to Lu Ze. Thereafter, Lu Ze realized it was Michael calling. He accepted and projected Michael’s figure in the living room.
Lu Ze looked at Michael in surprise. “You’ve found the source of the beast tide? Your efficiency is very high.”
Michael’s face turned awkward after hearing the praise. He laughed drily. “Actually, that blade demon died.”
The atmosphere instantly became uncomfortable. Moments later, Michael couldn’t handle it and smiled bitterly. “It’s our negligence. We didn’t expect that blade demon to commit suicide while the void beasts attacked and the guardians went to defend.”
Lu Ze smiled helplessly in return. “This beast tide is indeed unexpected.”
Michael continued, “We actually wanted to ask you where you caught this blade demon.” He then expanded some sort of star map in front of the others. “We want to see if there are any marks left there.”
Lu Ze smiled and pointed out the location. “Here, it’s not far from the border. The beast tide pa.s.sed through there too. Have a look.”
Lu Ze felt it was very unlikely they could find clues there. After all, that blade demon came to catch him. Even if he used that advanced creation, it wouldn’t be in that region.
Michael knew this too, but this was the only clue left right now. They had to go check it first.
He nodded to Lu Ze. “I understand. It’s really our negligence this time. Lu Ze you won’t lose any of your rewards. You will receive it within two days.”
Lu Ze smiled and nodded. “Alright.”
The communications were cut. Qiuyue Hesha frowned. “I didn’t expect that blade demon to commit suicide.”
Nangong Jing shook her head. “Now, the last clue has disappeared.”
Lu Ze shook his head. “The Shenwu Army would take care of this. There’s nothing we can do. The beast tide has ended. It’s not a big problem, just do what we need to do.
Everyone nodded. Then, Lu Ze said, “There are still ten days until your Martial G.o.d Armor Sets arrive. Let’s go see if there are any suitable nearby missions. Once your Martial G.o.d Armor Sets arrive, we’ll head out of the controlled region.”
At this juncture, Lin Ling’s phone rang. She checked the message and smiled. “It’s my brother. He joined the battle, defending against the void beast tide. He’s just finished resting up. He heard we’re at the stationing grounds, so he contacted me. He said he wants to treat us to Zhihuo Little Restaurant.”
Lu Ze’s eyes lit up. “Brother Lin Kuang is treating us? Great! Let’s go get free food.” Although Lin Kuang and the others didn’t have enough money to treat them to good food, free food always felt great. Nangong Jing said, “It’s rare for those guys to treat people. We need to eat well.”
Qiuyue Hesha glanced at Nangong Jing. “T-Rex, don’t make people poor.”
Therefore, the two glared at each other again.
Lu Li, Alice, and Lin Ling were speechless. Was their cooking not as good as the restaurant food? They didn’t want to cook anymore.
The group left the suite and came to the restaurant.
As soon as they entered, they felt a lot of gazes upon them.
The battle just finished, and several people came to the restaurant now. The place was filled.
The kitchen door opened, and Boss Zhu came out with dishes. When he saw Lu Ze’s group, he smiled. “So it’s you guys, you haven’t been here for a while.”
He walked up to Lu Ze and the rest. When he saw Lu Li and Alice, he became dumbfounded, but when he saw Ying Ying in Lu Li’s arms, his mouth twitched.
He pointed at Ying Ying. “Little b.a.s.t.a.r.d, you have a baby now? You’re still young, take it easy.” Lu Ze: “???”
The girls: “???”
Lu Ze could feel all sorts of glances being thrown at their group.
Lu Ze smiled drily. “Ying Ying isn’t our kid. She’s my little sister.”
Boss Zhu maintained his expression, but he didn’t pursue the matter any longer. He patted Lu Ze’s shoulder. “I heard you slew void beasts non-stop for four days. Not bad, just like me back in the days.”
Some customers talked back. “Old Zhu, that’s not being honest. You’re very strong now, but when you were at Monarch of the New Dawn’s age, you probably weren’t as strong as they
A bulky man grinned. “Yeah, you’re a bad old man.”
Boss Zhu glared at the man. “Knife Scar, your dishes will be cooked last!”
“Huh!” The man’s smile froze, and his expression fell.
Knife Scar grinned. “To be honest, I truly admire what Monarch of the New Dawn did during the beast tide.”
Everyone else smiled.
Lu Ze felt embarra.s.sed. So he was that excellent? He was going to get c.o.c.ky.
At this moment, Boss Zhu smiled. “Okay, you guys came to find those kids?” He pointed at Lin Kuang and the rest in the corner.
“Go over first, I’m going to work. I’ll cook for you guys first. I’ll give you 5% off for this meal.”
Lu Ze’s mouth twitched. “Thank you, Boss Zhu.”
Then, Boss Zhu went into the kitchen. Lin Kuang and his team looked at Lu Ze’s group with complicated expressions.
They were respected by the powerful beings here. Although they belonged to the same generation, Lin Kuang and the others were still noobs.
Lu Ze saw that Lin Kuang and his team still had pale faces. Their battles were very intense too, and they still haven’t completely recovered.
During this time, Luo Bingqing said, “Lu Ze, Nangong, Qiuyuee, are you guys leaving the controlled region afterward?”
Lu Ze answered, “We will consider it after a while.”
Luo Bingqing and the rest stopped breathing.
Jack sighed. “What a pity, we probably won’t be able to leave the controlled region these few months.”
Lin Kuang added, “I heard it’s very chaotic outside the controlled region. We probably can’t this time. Next time, I must go see it.” Luo Bingqing smiled. “Count me in.”
Mo Xie grinned. “Make a breakthrough to the planetary state first. After this meal, I’m going back to solitary cultivation. I won’t come out until I reach the planetary state.”
The others also had determined looks. They had acc.u.mulated enough after this life-and-death battle.
Xuan Yuji said, “Breakthrough to the planetary state before this trial.”
Nangong Jing grinned. “Good luck to all of you.”
Soon, Boss Zhu brought up the dishes.
Boss Zhu’s spirit chef-grade was much higher than Alice’s. Lu Li had to admit that the three of them couldn’t compare to Boss Zhu right now.
Ying Ying had a rather great time eating. Her little face was very satisfied.
Soon, everyone was well fed. Luo Bingqing and the others paid, and everyone split off.
Qiuyue Hesha smiled. “The next time we see them, they would be planetary states, right?”
Lu Ze nodded.
