Chapter 857 Consecutive Strikes???
Time flew past.
Three days later in the morning, Lu Ze and the girls were having breakfast.
Someone suddenly knocked on the door.
Alice went to open it and saw Zuoqiu Xunshuang outside.
“Mom, why did you come?” Nangong Jing saw her mother and felt stunned by her visit.
Zuoqiu Xunshuang said with a heavy tone, “We have figured out the situation regarding the insectoid tide.”
Everyone was taken aback. Lu Ze asked curiously, “What is it?”
“This invasion incident had occurred wide-scale. Aside from the Elf and Demon Cosmic Realm, the nearby cosmic realms were also attacked by the insectoids. We just don’t know why the insectoids suddenly started the war.”
Zuoqiu Xunshuang sat by the dining table and continued, “However, I heard that there were four to five cosmic realm state insectoids at the border of the Elf Cosmic Realm. This is only the situation in that realm. The others aren’t accounted for yet.”
Lu Li asked, “If we then added the other cosmic realm states, wouldn’t that mean the insectoids have sent tens of cosmic realm states?” Zuoqiu Xunshuang nodded seriously, and she cracked a smile. “Based on conjectures, there’s a large-scale insectoid lair in the sea of void s.p.a.ce outside the cosmic realm. This war might last for a longer period of time.” “There will be numerous insectoid queens entering the cosmic realm soon. The insectoid lair at our void s.p.a.ce isn’t the only one. According to other reports, many races are suffering ma.s.sive losses.”
Hearing the graveness of the situation, everyone frowned and fell silent.
Lin Ling sighed. “The situation is much worse than we thought.”
Zuoqiu Xunshuang smiled bitterly. “Lin Ling is right, but even if the sky falls, there’s someone tall enough to support it. The few resources we have here won’t interest the powerful insectoids. But that might not be the case for weaker insectoids. We need to monitor the situation in the void s.p.a.ce. Who knows if another insectoid queen would come?”
Lu Ze and the girls nodded.
Zuoqiu Xunshuang added, “Other than that, the Blade Demon Race seems to be plotting something nefarious as reported by our scouts. The situation isn’t too good. Hopefully, they won’t do something extremely damaging to both sides.”
Lu Ze was shocked. “Are they going to attack
Zuoqiu Xunshuang replied. “It’s all because of you. You killed the prodigy they had nurtured with all their resources. The blade demons are inherently vicious. There’s no way they wouldn’t go crazy.”
Lu Ze’s mouth twitched. He laughed awkwardly. “It’s not entirely my fault. Their prodigy took the initiative to challenge me. I couldn’t just hide. That would be insulting to the Human Race.”
Zuoqiu Xunshuang rolled her eyes. “No one is blaming you though.”
Lu Ze chuckled.
Zuoqiu Xunshuang looked at Lin Ling. “By the way, are you going to make a breakthrough soon?”
Lin Ling nodded. “Mhm, in about three to five days.”
“That’s really quick.” Zuoqiu Xunshuang sighed. “Then, for this time, we’ll give an earlier notice. More people who aren’t preoccupied may come to gain something from your phenomenon.”
Lin Ling nodded.
Zuoqiu Xunshuang pinched Lin Ling’s face. “Hehe, Lin Ling is really nice! You’re much more obedient than Jing Jing.”
Nangong Jing: “???”
At this moment, Lu Ze thought of something. He took out a level-1 star state red orb and offered, “Aunty Xunshuang, try using this.”
Zuoqiu Xunshuang saw the orb, and her eyes lit up. “Is this the orb you have been giving to Jing Jing and the rest?”.
Lu Ze laughed. “They’re using those with higher quality. Your cultivation level is a bit low, so those are not suitable for you.” Both the alcoholic and the fox demon were now using level-3 star state orbs.
Lin Ling, Lu Li, and Alice were still stuck at level-1 star state orbs. When they finish their respective breakthrough, they would have to use level-3 star state orbs too.
Zuogiu Xunshuang: “???”
She didn’t want to talk anymore. Following such, she took the orb and asked, “How do I use it?”
Lu Ze instructed, “Just eat it then digest the energy.”
Zuoqiu Xunshuang smiled .”Then, I’ll try it here.”
She rushed off to test its effects.
Lu Ze and the girls looked at each other.
“Should we feed some to Ying Ying?” Alice grinned.
At noon, the group was having lunch when the door to the room reserved for Zuoqiu Xunshuang suddenly opened. She charged out with excitement.
She went to Lu Ze and patted his shoulder heavily. “Good son-in-law. This...o...b..is amazing! I feel as though the inadequacies in my previous cultivation have been fixed!”
This would improve her potential, opening up infinite possibilities.
‘How could she not be excited?’
She moved closer to Lu Ze and asked, “Do you have more?”
Lu Ze took out some and said, “Of course, there’s enough for you to cultivate with. If you don’t have enough, tell me.”
She grinned. “My son-in-law is really nice! If Jing Jing doesn’t behave well, you can tell me. I’ll help you teach her a good lesson!”
Nangong Jing: “???”
Zuoqiu Xunshuang went to check once more, “It won’t affect the cultivation of the team, right?”
Lu Ze shook his head. “Don’t worry, Aunty Xunshuang, it’s fine.”
Since he finally reached the star state, he could now kill level-3 star state beasts. Hence, level-1 star state beasts were comparatively easy to deal with.
Zuoqiu Xunshuang felt relieved. “That’s good.”
Lu Ze asked, “By the way, Aunty Xunshuang, are the three elders here?’
Zuoqiu Xunshuang shook her head. “The void border is enormous. Elder Nangong and Elder Xu went to guard other places. As for, Elder Ao, he had gone back to Earth. That’s the ancestral planet after all.”
Lu Ze frowned. “So that’s it.”
He wanted them to test how useful level-3 star state orbs were. Noticing his somber reaction, she smiled. “Don’t worry, when Lin Ling does her breakthrough, they will come over to protect Lin Ling.” Lu Ze recovered his smile. “Okay.”
Zuoqiu Xunshuang smiled gently and rubbed Lu Ze’s hair. “Is it for their foundation? That’s very thoughtful of you.”
Lu Ze’s mouth twitched. “Aunty Xunshuang, it’s strange to see you behave like this.”
Zuoqiu Xunshuang’s smile stiffened. She hit Lu Ze’s head and glared at him. “I’m going back first. You guys should cultivate.”
She then left since she couldn’t wait to use the red orbs. Naturally, she shouldn’t allow herself to fall too far behind these youths.
News of Lin Ling’s incoming breakthrough soon spread out.
Everyone who could free themselves rushed over to planet Zhihuo.
Because everyone didn’t have anything to do after the insectoid invasion, more people visited the planet than before.
Zuoqiu Xunshuang commanded the Shenwu Army to maintain the order.
She recently used red orbs for three days. Although her cultivation level didn’t improve, her chi was clearly much stronger.
She smiled happily.
Later on, the saints have arrived in Lu Ze’s suite.
Back in the little girl’s room, Ying Ying’s mouth opened. The usual drool was present in her face. She reached out her hand to grab something in the air while mumbling, “Big… drumstick!”
Without a warning sign, Ying Ying sat up and looked around. She was extremely disappointed when she didn’t see her big drumstick.
The moment she decided to sit down, a light emerged.
When Ying Ying saw it, she blinked dazedly and then dropped onto the bed.
The starlight appeared again.
Before sleeping, Ying Ying bit her fingers and mumbled, “Roasted… pork feet…”
