Chapter 934 Sharks That Smell Blood
A few seconds later, all the bodies turned to dust, leaving drops on the ground.
Lu Ze looked at the drop of the level-4 cosmic system state beetle. He was taken aback.
There were no more red and purple orbs.
The beetle just left behind five drops of red liquid. They looked just like ordinary waterdrops. Even the size was the same.
Intense spirit force seeped out from them.
There were also five drops of purple liquid that were waterdrop-sized too. They were glowing with purple light.
Besides those, there were no other drops.
The other beetles dropped the same resources, but the quant.i.ty was increasingly smaller depending on their cultivation level. The light was also dimmer.
Lu Ze didn’t feel too good. That is it?’
‘Why are the resources so scarce?’
The girls were also disappointed.
Nangong Jing remarked, “I thought there would be equipment. They should at least leave a G.o.d art orb behind. This beetle is too
The others nodded in agreement.
They only had one weapon. They weren’t fully equipped.
Lu Ze rolled his eyes. “This is the weakest beast on this map. This drop is pa.s.sable. Don’t think too much.”
They must be dreaming.
He didn’t even think about getting a piece of equipment as soon as they entered the map. Lin Ling asked in curiosity, “Did the orbs turn into liquid?”
Lu Ze picked up one red drop. It felt like gel.
A few seconds later, the drop disappeared and went into his mental force dimension.
Lu Li raised a brow. “How is it?”
Lu Ze smiled. “We’ll know once we go out. Okay, gather them first.”
There was at least something though.
With this, they could grow stronger and fight even more powerful beasts.
Everyone collected the drop.
Lu Ze smiled. “Let’s continue.”
Nangong Jing said, “It seems the low-level beasts here aren’t that strong. If we fight together, it should be fine.”
Indeed, if they teamed up, they could subdue beasts that were slightly stronger than they were.
Even if they couldn’t win, they could still escape.
Lu Ze felt his efficiency increase after the girls entered the dimension.
The group continued forward.
The environment on the map was harsh but still survivable.
The group moved along the boundless desert while searching for prey.
There was a terrifying chi shooting up in the distance from time to time. It made the group quite concerned.
However, there were no other auras around them.
Lu Ze frowned. “These beasts seem to have the habit of hiding. Don’t they?”
He didn’t detect any nearby beast at all.
Qiuyue Hesha nodded.
The chis they sensed from the distance were at least level-7 or level-8 cosmic system states.
There were quite some chis that surpa.s.sed the cosmic system state.
This level of beast wasn’t something they could beat right now.
Lu Ze said, “Never mind, let’s take it slowly. At least we can avoid those powerful beasts for now.”
At this moment, the s.p.a.ce suddenly froze around them. They couldn’t even lift a finger.
The area they were at suddenly sunk down as a hideous mouth that was tens of meters wide appeared and engulfed them. Consequently, the entire group died.
They woke up back in their rooms and sweated cold.
They leaned against each other while trembling with pain.
Alice cried out. “So painful…”
Even Lu Ze was shaking with a pale face.
‘It hurt so much!’
His voice was shaky. “I didn’t expect such powerful beasts to hide too.”
This boss was too sneaky.
Despite them trying their best to sense the surroundings, they still didn’t notice anything amiss.
In reality, they delivered themselves to the mouth of a boss.
Lin Ling said, “When I reach the cosmic system state, I might be able to see through something.” Nangong Jing said, “Lin Ling, hurry up. We’re going to rely on you.” Half an hour later, the pain subsided.
Then, Lu Ze divided the red and purple liquids among them for cultivation.
He sat on the couch and looked at the liquids. He chose to use a level-4 cosmic system state red liquid.
His body should be able to handle it.
The red liquid shot inside his body and turned into a vast energy tide.
The terrifying power shook his cells.
Lu Ze’s face instantly turned pale as he quivered.
The power was so strong that blood seeped out of his body.
He tried his best to digest the energy. A part of it went inside his cells and into the small asteroids.
The light on the asteroids flashed and expanded.
Another part strengthened his body.
Nine hours later, the vast amount of energy had been digested. Lu Ze opened his eyes as a red light flashed.
He looked at the layer of scab on his body.
Even his powerful const.i.tution could barely handle it.
The girls wouldn’t be able to bear it definitely.
Lu Ze checked his progress.
Although consuming liquid was very painful, it was extremely effective.
At this rate, he would reach level-2 cosmic system state in a month.
This was a level within the cosmic system state!
Having such a speed among cosmic system states was inhuman.
He wiped away the scab happily and left the room.
After breakfast, the group sat next to Ying Ying’s bed.
Lu Ze took out a level-4 cosmic system state red liquid. “How effective is this liquid?”
Lu Ze threw the red liquid onto Ying Ying’s starlight, and it was soon digested.
The starlight around her shone brighter.
Ying Ying’s face showed satisfaction.
Qiuyue Hesha remarked, “It seems to work quite well.”
Nangong Jing said, “But we don’t have a lot. Keep the rest, Ze. We might not be able to get more today.”
It was too difficult to navigate on the fifth map. If they didn’t get anything, it would delay their cultivation.
Lu Li said, “Feed her with level-1 and level-2 cosmic system state ones first.”
They had more stock of those.
Lu Ze had the same thought.
After feeding her, someone knocked on the door.
Alice went to open it and found Zuoqiu Xunshuang outside. She smiled and moved aside. “Aunty Xunshuang, why are you here?”
Zuoqiu Xunshuang entered and saw Ying Ying on the bed. “Ying Ying is sleeping?”
They didn’t even know.
Lu Ze nodded. “She was probably affected by the phenomenon.”
Zuoqiu Xunshuang frowned. “How long does she need to wake up?” Lu Ze replied, “I am not sure. It can be a few days or a month…”
Ying Ying had slept over a month before, but now, the red orbs had evolved to red liquid. It should be more effective, so her sleeping period should lessen.
Lu Ze asked, “What’s wrong, Aunty Xunshuang?”
Zuoqiu Xunshuang said, “We’re going to the blade demon territory now. There will be enforcers coming over to carry out the agreement. Accidents will be unlikely, but just in case, it is best to have Ying Ying awake.”
Lu Ze and the girls furrowed their brows. Nangong Jing asked, “Mom, when will the enforcers arrive?”
Zuoqiu Xunshuang answered, “There is an insectoid tide right now. They would take about a month or two. As long as we don’t destroy the blade demon ancestral planet and leave some seeds for them, it should be fine.”
She then pointed, “The problem is, however, with our current military power, even if we deploy everyone into the blade demon territory, it would still be a bit hard to control it completely within two months.”
“Plus… if the cosmic system states of the other races near the blade demons realize they no longer have cosmic system states, they would probably want a share too.”
Lu Ze and the girls frowned.
The Blade Demon Race was a tempting huge piece of cake after losing all their cosmic system states. They can’t guard such an enormous galaxy.
