Chapter 803 s.p.a.ce Pirates
Twenty days later, Lu Ze and the girls stepped out of the dao enlightenment room.
They returned to planet Venus to rest for a day and gathered thereafter at Elder Nangong’s shack.
Elder Nangong would be the one leading the pack to the East Realm Gathering as well.
Other than Lu Ze’s group and Ying Ying, those prodigies who reached the planetary state were also going. Zuoqiu Xunshuang and some star states accompanied them too.
Everyone boarded the black s.h.i.+p they previously used to reach the Round Race’s territory. They took off and left the Milky Way galaxy.
Lu Ze and the girls began their usual cultivation routine in their rooms.
A month later, the s.h.i.+p arrived at the Winged Race’s border.
The other three races of the alliance were already waiting there. Following this, they proceeded to depart together.
Another month later, Lu Ze was surging with milky white spirit force in his room. This spirit force was slowly fusing with his cells.
Simultaneously, the eight-spirit rune was being slowly formed. With this, an invisible wave pulsated in his body, enhancing every aspect of his power.
A few hours later, the spirit force had completely merged with his cells. The eight-spirit rune was done forming.
Lu Ze slowly opened his eyes.
There was starlight emerging from the depth of his eyes.
Lu Ze got up and stretched out.
After more than two months of cultivation, he finally reached the level – 8 planetary state.
He exited his room and went to Ying Ying’s.
Ying Ying was kicking with her little legs while watching cartoons. She would eat the snacks Alice prepared for her from time to time.
On the couch, Lin Ling and Alice were talking and laughing every now and then.
When they saw Lu Ze, both of their eyes lit up.
Alice jumped to his side and grabbed his arm. “Senior, you are finally finished with cultivation. You haven’t come out for a few days.”
Lu Ze no longer felt tired upon seeing the energetic Alice. He patted Alice’s blue hair and smiled. “I was working on breaking through.”
Lin Ling looked at Lu Ze. “You broke through?”
Lu Ze nodded. “Yes, I’m a level-8 planetary state now.”
Alice giggled. “Senior progresses so fast. At this rate, senior will reach the star state when we arrive at the East Realm Gathering.”
“It’s not that easy.” Lu Ze knocked on Alice’s head.
His cultivation speed had slowed quite a bit during this period.
Lu Ze could, at most, kill level-9 planetary state beasts. Nevertheless, he couldn’t beat star state beasts at all.
He hadn’t fought with anyone for a long time, but in estimation, his power should be equivalent to ordinary level-2 star states.
The star states in the Pocket Hunting Dimension had exceptional G.o.d arts. Their combat power wasn’t something ordinary star states could handle.
He would have to reach at least the peak stage of the planetary state to beat them.
He wasn’t even a match for peak planetary state super beasts when he was a level-7 planetary state.
Even though he was a level-8 planetary state now, he still wasn’t really confident. Hence, he could only use ordinary peak planetary state red orbs to cultivate.
It might take him two months or longer to reach the level-9 planetary state.
Right now, his goal was to reach the level-9 planetary state upon arriving at the gathering
‘If only the girls could help me kill beasts in the Pocket Hunting Dimension…’
Unfortunately, other people couldn’t enter the Pocket Hunting Dimension.
Alice rubbed her head. “Senior knocked on my head again! It has become your habit now! I will become stupid!” Lu Ze asked, “Do I do it often?”
Lin Ling rolled her eyes. “Do you not know yourself?”
She had been subject to his fist several times.
Lu Ze: “…”
He looked at his hand. ‘Was this addictive?’
No wonder the alcoholic was obsessed with flicking his forehead before.
At this moment, Nangong Jing walked in. Lu Ze looked at her strangely.
Immediately, Nangong Jing’s face became vigilant. “What are you doing?”
Lu Ze’s mouth twitched as he moved his fingers. “Nothing.”
Nangong Jing sat down on the couch. She immediately took out her golden fruit wine to take a sip.
“Hahaha, drinking wine after cultivation is a pleasure of life.”
Lin Ling inquired, “Sister Jing, the golden fruit wine isn’t helpful to your cultivation anymore, right? Why do you still drink it every day?”
Nangong Jing retorted, “Drinking is satisfying. You don’t have to only drink things helpful to your cultivation. This wine is tasty!”
Alice poked out her tongue. “It’s tasty but too easy to get drunk on…” “Stop! Alice!” Nangong Jing exclaimed. Lu Ze’s mouth twitched. He recalled her drunken antics a few days ago. He gasped regretfully. Seeing this, Nangong Jing blushed even more. The girls knew what happened. All of them complained to her about her behavior, especially the fox demon.
Right then, she hesitantly looked at the wine before closing her eyes and taking a huge gulp.
Moments later, Lu Li and Qiuyue Hesha joined them.
When Ying Ying complained that she was hungry, the three girls went to cook.
After lunch, the group was resting. Suddenly, they heard a piercing alarm.
Lu Ze and the girls frowned and got up.
“What happened?” Qiuyue Hesha asked. Lu Ze responded, “I don’t know.”
Ying Ying blinked. “The s.h.i.+p is surrounded. We left the warp tunnel. Currently, we are being attacked.”
A broadcast blared out during this time.
“Everyone, attention! We have encountered s.p.a.ce pirates. Get ready for battle!”
Lu Ze raised a brow. “I haven’t encountered them in quite a while.”
Nangong Jing grinned. “Haven’t had a good fight in a long time. I really want to know how strong I am now.” The other girls were br.i.m.m.i.n.g with battle intent too. All of them had made progress.
Lu Ze rubbed Ying Ying’s head. “Ying Ying, stay here. Secretly help if you can. Don’t let the other three races notice it.”
Ying Ying nodded.
Lu Ze said, “Let’s go out and see.”
The group went to the foyer.
Elder Nangong and the others were all present. They looked outside.
There were more than ten s.h.i.+ps surrounding the s.h.i.+ps of the four races.
There were vibrant spirit force cannons on the enemy s.h.i.+ps as figures flew out. Their powerful chi rattled the s.p.a.ce.
The old man remarked, “The s.p.a.ce pirates aren’t weak. There are quite a few cosmic system states. It’s probably just like usual. They’re targeting races that will attend the East Realm Gathering. Be careful.”
The Human Race had encountered a situation similar to this before. The leader at the time, Saint Kuang Sha, and all the people who went died.
However, this time, it was different.
Elder Nangong looked at Lu Ze inquisitively.
Lu Ze gave an affirmative smile.
This a.s.sured Elder Nangong.
His eyes flashed with resoluteness as he thought of Saint Kuang Sha. “Go out and fight!”
The shuttle door opened and Elder Nangong led everyone out.
Zuoqiu Xunshuang reminded, “Be careful.”
Lu Ze nodded. “Don’t worry, Aunty Xunshuang.” Nangong Jing protested, “Mom, we’re not kids anymore.”
The other three races also charged forward.
