Chapter 755 Bloated
The atmosphere in the hall was deadly silent. Everyone looked at each other.
After a moment of silence, Nangong Jing shot daggers at him and said righteously, “Keep dreaming! I would never be like the fox demon! Don’t even think about it!”
Lin Ling gritted her teeth. “You’re sick!” It would have been fine if he said it to each of them individually, but there were so many people here… ‘Would they still have any face left then?’ Alice also nodded in agreement. “Yes, you’re crossing the line, senior!”
She was actually a little excited, but since the others said those remarks, she couldn’t go up alone.
Lu Li sneered. “You want rewards, right? Seeing how tired you are, how about I cook some food for you today?”
Lu Ze: “???!”
He looked at Lu Li in disbelief.
‘He placed first, and yet, she still attempted to murder him?’
Without a doubt, she wanted to cook those dark dishes. Thinking about this, he coughed.
“Why are your thoughts so unhealthy? I just said I want a reward. I didn’t say what it was. Why are you all so interested in my body?”
Hearing this, everyone drew a sharp breath and looked at Lu Ze in disbelief. Earlier, he obviously meant it in ‘that’ way. ‘How could he blame them now?!’
Even Qiuyue Hesha smiled. Little brother Lu Ze was a little bloated today, indeed.
“In that case, come, I’ll give you a reward now.” Nangong Jing had a smile on her face. She was considering letting him go since he ranked first, but now… Nangong Jing then charged up towards Lu Ze. “I’ll beat you to death today!!”
The rest of them didn’t fall far behind, and Lu Ze’s cries could be heard once again.
“I’m sorry! I’m sorry!”
“… Lin Ling, are you a dog?! Stop biting me. Lin Ling is the cutest in the world!”
Lu Ze’s cries sounded even more painful at this time.
Only Qiuyue Hesha casually s.h.i.+fted spots and watched the show.
During this moment, a silver-white hole appeared, and Zuoqiu Xunshuang carried Ying Ying out from the wormhole. When she saw the five of them on the couch with red faces and messy clothes, her smile stiffened.
The rest of them didn’t expect Zuoqiu Xunshuang to arrive at this juncture. In the end, they all froze on the spot.
Nangong Jing was embarra.s.sed to death. She was still sitting on Lu Ze’s leg, and her mom saw such a scene. She wanted to die!
The atmosphere became extremely awkward.
Moments later, Zuoqiu Xunshuang’s mouth twitched, and she coughed. “Um, it seems I didn’t come at the right time…”
Nangong Jing and the other girls quickly jumped away from Lu Ze.
Nangong Jing said, “Mom, let me explain…”
“No… don’t explain!” Zuoqiu Xunshuang nodded in understanding.
Thereafter, she put Ying Ying down. “She said she wants to come back. I’ll leave her here. You guys, continue…”
Nangong Jing was almost tearing up. “No… mom, don’t get the wrong idea…” “I know, I know.” Zuoqiu Xunshuang waved her hand and wanted to enter the wormhole.
At this moment, she thought of something and looked at the group. “Um, Ying Ying is here right now. It’s best to go back to your rooms. This isn’t suitable for kids. And… keep things in balance, young people.”
Following her reminder, Zuoqiu Xunshuang disappeared into the wormhole.
After she left, everyone collapsed on the couch.
The life from Nangong Jing’s face was drained. “Don’t stop me, I’m going to jump off a building!”
Qiuyue Hesha carried Ying Ying and rolled her eyes. “Don’t jump from an extremely high area. The Earth might end up broken because of you.”
Nangong Jing: “…”
‘Alright, for the safety of Earth, it was best that she didn’t jump.’ At this point, Ying Ying blinked her eyes in confusion. “What happened to them, sister Hesha?”
Qiuyue Hesha rubbed Ying Ying’s little face. “They were doing naughty things and got caught.”
Ying Ying nodded. “Are they doing something adults do?”
Hearing this, everyone felt lifeless.
‘Even the cute little Ying Ying misunderstood them?’
After a while, everyone recovered.
Lu Li, Alice, Lin Ling, and Nangong Jing moved closer to Ying Ying in order to rub her. They hadn’t seen her for a few days.
Alice said, “Ying Ying and senior should be hungry. Let’s go and cook.”
Lin Ling nodded. “Ze placed first today. Let’s make a big feast.”
Lu Li agreed with the plan.
Hearing them, Lu Ze was very touched.
They were all angels… even though they beat people.
An hour later, the dinner was ready. The table was flas.h.i.+ng with spirit light from the food.
After placing the last dish on the table, the main cook, Alice, smiled. “Time to eat.” Immediately, Lu Ze and Ying Ying appeared at the table and started fighting over the food.
The others smiled at this and sat down to eat as well.
When dinner time was finished, they watched cartoons with Ying Ying for a while before returning to their own rooms.
Early the next morning, Lu Ze and the group went to the living room and received a notice ordering them to go and gather at the meeting hall of the hotel. When they arrived, they found that Luo Bingqing, Lin Kuang, and a few prodigies who had reached the planetary state were also present.
Lu Ze and the team sat down and asked, “Why did they suddenly call us here? Do you know what it’s for?”
Lin Kuang shook his head. “I don’t know.”
It was at this time that Saint Jinyao and Lin Dong came over. When Saint Jinyao saw Lu Ze, Nangong Jing, and the rest, he had a cheeky smile on his face.
Lu Ze and the girls: “???”
Why did the old man give them this strange expression?
Did aunty Xunshuang spill to him what happened last night?
Thinking about this, everyone felt embarra.s.sed.
The old man then said, “This time, you were called over for a very important thing.”
“Recently, the Round Race found a secret realm. It is an ancient artificial secret realm. It was the ruins of a civilization that had disappeared. There were quite some treasures inside.”
“As of now, there are other beings who are aware of its existence. The secret realm is in the cosmic realm between the Round and Purple Scale Race. After some negotiations, the two sides agreed to send the prodigies of the new generation to excavate it.”
“You guys are all planetary states and are the most excellent prodigies of the Human Race. Therefore, I have decided that you will partic.i.p.ate.”
“Of course, the Purple Scale Race has their own allies. Their alliance isn’t fond of our four-race alliance. This time, there will be a bit of danger. You guys should decide whether you want to go.”
Lin Kuang was the first to answer. “Of course, I’m going!”
The others a.s.sented as well.
Cultivating in the planetary state required too many resources. If they didn’t go and fight for it, they should just retire already. The old man wasn’t surprised at their reactions. He looked at Lu Ze’s group.
They didn’t lack resources.
Lu Ze smiled. “We’ll go too.”
Nangong Jing and the rest wouldn’t object since Lu Ze agreed.
The old man nodded. “In that case, I won’t say much.”
“The agreed time is two months later. It’ll take nearly two months to get there. Prepare yourselves and we can leave tomorrow. This time, I’ll lead the pack personally.” Lu Ze and the others nodded.
