Chapter 833 Why Am I Not a Pretty Young Girl?
Xia Zhi and Ji Cheng looked at each other like they were old fathers who were proud of their children.
They had long known these two liked each other. However, Shadora was aloof while Yan Gu was shy. It worried them quite a lot.
Finally, the two got together now.
Ji Cheng chuckled. “Ze, come, we’re almost dying too. Come and heal us on the other side.”
Lu Ze’s mouth twitched, but he nodded.
The three left to give the other two some privacy.
These two were level-5 planetary states too. Soon, their injuries were healed. Xia Zhi could finally use his hand. Xia Zhi looked gratefully at Lu Ze. “Thank you, Ze.”
Lu Ze shook his head. “You’re too polite.”
During this time, Yan Gu and Shadora flew over.
Yan Gu felt a little awkward and faked a cough. “Ze, we’re going back to the planet. We used up a lot of power. What about you?”
Lu Ze smiled. “I’ll go help elsewhere.”
He sensed a few star state chi around the planet.
The group understood and bid Lu Ze farewell.
Outside planet Zhihuo, a bald-headed man was currently fighting an insectoid. It had tens of sharp spikes on its tail, which seemed to have a life on its own as it circled around the man to attack.
The bald-headed man had powerful winds circling around him. He wielded a huge long sword that released sharp green wind blades with every strike.
With every clash, dark red and green spirit lights flashed in s.p.a.ce.
There was another confrontation. The man’s face was serious as he clutched his sword with both hands. Green light flowed like jade as it condensed.
He was just about to hack down when a black figure appeared.
Lu Ze emerged behind the insectoid’s back.
Dark golden runes circulated around his feet as he stomped. This tore apart the insectoid’s spirit barrier, crus.h.i.+ng its armor in the end.
The weight of this stomp almost instantly shattered the star state insectoid’s sh.e.l.l. The unsightly creature was forced back by this power as blood gushed out. Soon, it lost its life.
The bald-headed man: “???”
He didn’t even unleash his attack yet. This star state insectoid had already died…
He looked at Lu Ze and blinked his eyes in disbelief. “Lu Ze?”
Lu Ze looked at the man and soon recognized him.
He waved his hand. “General Cheng Feng. You’re here too. What a coincidence!”
This man was the head commander of the Shangyang System. He came when they discovered Yi Lei’s s.h.i.+p.
Cheng Feng’s mouth twitched. Moments later, he said, “How long has it been? Your power reached this level already.” His own cultivation level stepped on level two of the star state. In addition, he had a good mastery of wind G.o.d art. He was also quite decent among level-2 star states. Nevertheless, he was only evenly matched with that insectoid. ‘But then, Lu Ze killed the monster with one kick!
He felt very shocked. Lu Ze’s power was far above his.
Lu Ze laughed it off. “I just cultivated, and it became like this.”
It was just a normal cultivation rate for Lu Ze. Cheng Feng: “…” Lu Ze asked, “How is the situation?” Cheng Feng frowned. “There are large parcels of land growing Zhihuo Lotus on the planet. They emit powerful auras and strongly attract these b.a.s.t.a.r.ds. The void border is one of the most damaged regions. Perhaps insectoids are building a lair in the depth of this region. The insectoids would come again and again. There is a lot of them. People have gone out to investigate the situation.” Lu Ze frowned.
This meant that there would be a queen insectoid. If they had an endless supply of energy, there would be infinite insectoids.
Luckily, the insectoid queen shouldn’t have reached a higher level yet. Otherwise, it would be amusing if a few cosmic cloud state insectoids were created.
Lu Ze relaxed.
When the hive was located, he would go over and check it too.
Cheng Feng smiled. “All the races in this region of s.p.a.ce have joined up to search for the lair. We should be able to destroy it when we find it. We need to clear out the threats to our own territory first.” Lu Ze nodded with a smile. “Then, I’m going to search for more prey. Goodbye, General Cheng Feng.”
Following such, Lu Ze disappeared from the spot.
Cheng Feng’s mouth twitched. This kid was indeed the strongest prodigy of the Federation. He shook his head and took off too.
At this moment, Nangong Jing and the girls were fighting a sea urchin-like insectoid.
Lu Li had dark mist swirling around her and the insectoid to distract its senses and vision. It could only wave around its spikes and tentacles.
Lin Ling’s eyes glowed as golden needles shot at the insectoid’s weakness.
Qiuyue Hesha’s eyes glowed with pink light, causing the insectoid to pause for an instant. Its tentacles stopped moving around, and the golden needles landed on its tough sh.e.l.l.
There was a piercing sound as needle holes appeared.
Nangong Jing used Demonic Burst and proceed before the insectoid. Her destructive fist force pounded the needle holes.
Green goo poured out from the cracks.
Despite their efforts, the insectoid’s tentacles kept on moving. They almost tore the s.p.a.ce open. But when it counter-attacked, Nangong Jing and the girls dodged. The attacks of this monster were almost approaching Lu Ze’s level.
Nangong Jing didn’t want to get hit by the tentacle.
In the distance, there were five human star states! They were watching Nangong Jing’s battle in shock.
“Too strong! This insectoid’s combat power is nearing level-4 star state. We can only barely defend ourselves. However, they can suppress this insectoid!”
“… Not just that, the insectoid is heavily injured. It would die in the next wave of attacks.”
“With them around, the future of the Human Race should be great.”
“Indeed, other than Lu Ze, they are quite strong too.”
“By the way, they seem to be… with Lu Ze…”
“Did Lu Ze help them? Doesn’t that kid have a powerful cultivation G.o.d art?”
“Why am I not a pretty young girl?”
As the group discussed, the insectoid grew more ferocious, but there was always this dark mist around it.
During this time, Lu Li frowned. “I can’t hold on for long.”
Releasing the Eternal Darkness Mist was too consuming. Nangong Jing remarked, “Lin Ling, do it again. Alice, come and help me kill it!” The two nodded.
More golden needles formed around Lin Ling as Alice formed a total of fifteen fire clones.
Qiuyue Hesha used her G.o.d art as well.
The tentacle stopped moving once again. The fire clones exploded, and the cracks on the insectoid grew wider.
The golden needles shot straight into the cracks.
The insectoid became extremely weak. At this moment, a golden fist force penetrated its wounds and wiped its life force away.
Nangong Jing and the group breathed easy. Lu Li’s face was a little pale. “I’m so tired.” Nangong Jing grinned. “This insectoid is a bit strong.”
After wearing the special armor, Nangong Jing and Qiuyue Hesha possessed a level-3 star state power. With the aid of Lin Ling, Alice, and Lu Li, their combat power may not be strong as Lu Ze’s, but it was still quite good.
They were unmatched among level-3 star states.
There were no insectoids stronger than a level-3 star state. Perhaps there weren’t enough Zhihuo Lotuses. However, this insectoid’s combat power approached level four, so it was tough to deal with it
Right then, the other star states flew over.
“Young duke Nangong. Your combat power makes us feel ashamed.”
“Yes, we’re old. We can hardly hold off this level of insectoid, but you can kill them.”
Nangong Jing and the team smiled.
During this time, another wormhole appeared. Two similar insectoids flew out.
Terrifying power swept across all directions.
The smiles disappeared from the face of the girls.
At this moment, a dark figure stopped before Nangong Jing and the rest. “Wow, these insectoids look really special.”
