Chapter 896 Seething Killing Intent
Lu Ze lay on his bed lifelessly. At this moment, someone knocked on his door.
‘Who would come at this moment?’
‘Aren’t the girls in pain too?’
He was in so much pain he couldn’t get up. Hence, he opened the door with wind G.o.d art.
Nangong Jing and the rest of the girls walked inside. Their faces appeared very normal.
Lu Ze: “???”
‘Are they highly resistant to pain now?’
“This was terrifying!!
Nangong Jing asked, “Ze, are you okay?” Lu Ze: “…”
He wanted to say his condition was bad. However, upon seeing their calmness, he wouldn’t admit he couldn’t bear the pain.
He stood up from the bed, causing his face to quiver from immense pain. Following such, he didn’t forget to force a smile. “Me? I’m fine.”
Alice questioned, “Senior, didn’t you die? How can you be fine? Is it not painful?” Lu Ze shook his head. “No! I feel great!”
He quickly changed the topic, “By the way, why did you guys come over?”
Qiuyue Hesha answered, “After you were killed by the overlord, we got ejected by the dimension automatically. We were very confused too, so we came over to ask you.”
Lu Ze’s mouth twitched. “A-a-are you saying you girls didn’t come out because you died?”
“No, what is wrong?” Lu Ze: “…”
He collapsed into Lin Ling’s arms and declared shakily, “Um, … I’m in a bit of a bad condition. I need a hug.”
He incorrectly a.s.sumed these girls were resistant to pain!
He had to pretend for so long.
As it turned out, they didn’t die at all!
The girls: “…”
Soon, they realized what Lu Ze was doing before. All the girls felt it was funny, but they couldn’t help the anger.
Lin Ling hugged Lu Ze gently and sat on the ground, so he could lie more comfortably in her arms. “Is this better?”
Lu Ze squirmed in her arms to find a comfortable position before closing his eyes. “Mhm, this is cozy.”
Even though the other girls rolled their eyes, they still ma.s.saged him in the end, making Lu Ze moan with satisfaction.
After a while, Nangong Jing asked, “Ze, do you know why we were suddenly out?”
Lu Ze responded, “Probably because after I die, you guys should follow too?” The Pocket Hunting Dimension belonged to him after all, and the girls only got the privilege to enter because of him. After his death, the others didn’t have the right to stay inside any longer?
Nangong Jing and the girls realized this was the only probable explanation.
Lu Li smiled. “In that case, whenever we can’t escape, let’s just leave Ze and run.”
Nangong Jing agreed. “That’s a bright idea. We don’t have to die at all.”
Lu Ze: “???”
‘How could they say such things?’
‘Aren’t they supposed to die together?’ Lu Ze’s heart was broken.
Qiuyue Hesha and the other girls were enjoying it greatly. If it wasn’t obvious, they were merely kidding.
After some ma.s.sages, Lu Ze recovered quite fast. However, he refused to say anything and kept enjoying the treatment. Since it was a rare opportunity, he had to cherish it.
Lu Ze smiled. “By the way, the elders looked as though they wanted us to have kids soon…”
The girls blushed as Lu Ze felt smug. This time around, they didn’t cultivate the entire night. They only started cultivating again after finis.h.i.+ng their breakfast the following day. Lu Ze worked on his cultivation level. The overlord was too strong. In his estimation, he needed to be a peak star state before he could try killing it with the girls.
In some cla.s.sified room of the Shenwu Army at the void border, Elder Nangong was sitting on a bed.
Vibrant light flashed around him. The golden light grew thicker while the chi around him became stronger.
Moments later, he opened his eyes as a sharp light flashed.
He took a few deep breaths, but he still couldn’t contain his excitement.
His essence had completely recovered!
That flawed foundation of his due to forcefully reaching the cosmic system state also became extremely st.u.r.dy.
After two thousand years of learning, his cultivation level went straight from level-7 cosmic system state to peak stage cosmic system state within half a year!
His combat power was numerous times stronger than before. ‘How could he not be overjoyed?’
He was excited for half an hour before getting out of the room.
He went to the general’s office.
A black-armored star state was doing office work. He quickly got up upon noticing the elder and saluted, “Lord Jinyao!”
Elder Nangong nodded. “How is the border lately?”
The person replied, “There would still be insectoids from time to time, but no more additional insectoid lairs emerged. We can defend and prevent the insectoids from invading the Federation.”
Elder Nangong nodded. “How is the situation at the border of the Elf Cosmic Realm?”
“Outside reports claim that the battle with insectoids is still on-going at the border. The Insectoid Race won’t stop for a while.”
Elder Nangong frowned. The insectoids suddenly went crazy and attacked all nearby cosmic realms. However, they were a top race in the universe.
‘What could you do?’
He rubbed his temple. “Stay alert. The void border is the door to our Federation. We can’t afford to make a mistake.”
Elder Nangong asked, “How about the Blade Demon Race?”
“Ever since the Monarch of the New Dawn destroyed their base in the Geka System, they made no movements lately. They seem to be defending against the possible insectoid tides.”
Elder Nangong raised a brow. This didn’t seem like those violent blade demons he encountered.
Elder Nangong didn’t believe it either, but now, his cultivation level had reached the peak stage of the cosmic system state. Whatever might happen, he felt quite confident.
Not just him. The other three old guys wouldn’t stay the same either. It wouldn’t be too difficult to defend the Human Race with their improved combat power. Even if they couldn’t, Ying Ying was still around.
Elder Nangong said, “Keep defending here. Let me know if anything happens.”
Elder Nangong disappeared from the base. He soon wondered how the other old guys were doing. He had to go and show off.
A month later, a group of beings appeared on the ancestral planet of the Blade Demon
They didn’t bother anyone and flew into the ancestral planet immediately. The group entered the demon palace.
The Blade Demon King and two other cosmic system states were already waiting inside. The Blade Demon King snarled and got up while opening his arms. “Welcome friends for agreeing to attack the Human Race together!”
As proof of alliance, the Dark Metal Demon Race sent four cosmic system states. The Black Smoke Race sent four too. There were also three partic.i.p.ants from the Evil-Eyed Race, three from the Pale Scale Race, two from the Half Demon Race, and two from the Blood Claw Race.
Along with the six blade demon cosmic system states, there would be a total of 24 cosmic system states!
This was enough to decimate all four of those old things if they planned things out.
