Chapter 535 Elliot’s Visit
Elliot’s arrival was just a brief moment. Soon, everyone went back to what they were doing.
A few hours later, everyone began to leave and bid their goodbyes to Lu Ze and Lin Ling. Of course, they will be staying in Dawn System these few days because they would be heading off to the void border in five days.
Soon, only Lu Ze and the rest remained.
Lu Ze stretched his back and smiled. “It’s finally over.”
He didn’t like these sorts of gatherings. He would rather cultivate himself. Today was very tiring.
Nangong Jing looked at the empty food tables and smiled. “There will be people who will clean this, so just leave it here for now.”
Similar to setting up the banquet, there would be people willing to clean up, as long as some academic credits were given in exchange.
Following that, everyone went to Nangong Jing’s place.
They lay on the couch. None of them liked these sorts of things.
Nangong Jing looked curiously at Lu Ze. “Ze, you’re not going to ask me who that person was?”
Lu Ze was confused. “Why would I ask?”
Nangong Jing: “???”
Her fists felt itchy again.
Was this guy not curious at all??
At this moment, Lu Ze laughed. “I can’t restrict you from befriending others, right?”
Nangong Jing was stunned, and then, she smiled. “That person is called Elliot Ronald. His grandpa is a star state and the guild leader of the Searing Emperor Squad. Our families were close when were young. He took care of
Lu Ze nodded. “Oh.”
No wonder she called him brother.
Qiuyue Hesha smiled. “You saw his expression. He definitely wasn’t happy. Does it not pain
Nangong Jing rolled her eyes. “I was only ten when he broke through to the planetary state and left the galaxy. Then, we’ve only seen each other twice. I’ve always thought of him as a big brother since I was young.”
“I was thinking about going to the Searing Emperor Squad after reaching the planetary state, but now, of course, I’m going to follow Ze.”
Lu Ze’s mouth twitched. “The cultivation resources that guy offered just now wouldn’t definitely be less, right? You didn’t want it at all. So you’re going to stick to me?” Nangong Jing smiled. “It’s your fault for giving me so many good resources. Is it my fault?”
Qiuyue Hesha grinned. “I’m also sticking to you too.”
Nangong Jing heard this. With a look of distaste, she said, “Fox, you’re really disgusting.”
Qiuyue Hesha smiled. “A dinosaur full of muscles like you can’t comprehend what I say.”
Lu Ze and the rest looked speechlessly at the two. They were arguing again.
At this moment, Lu Li and Alice said, “We want to go to the void border too.”
Their words made everyone stunned.
Alice said, “We’re almost at the peak stage of the aperture opening state. It would take less than half a month for us to reach the mortal evolution state. Our combat power has reached the mortal evolution state too, right?”
“Based on the requirements to be appointed as young dukes, we’re only missing contributions.”
Everyone was speechless. Indeed, these two had mortal evolution state power.
The void border was too dangerous.
Alice said, “Senior, I’ve already spoken with my father. He agreed to let us go.”
Nangong Jing raised a brow. “Uncle Merlin let you guys go?”
Lu Li smiled and explained, “We won’t go directly with you. Uncle Merlin said we’ll join the God Martial Army for now. We’ll cultivate there first and do missions with them. If we progress fast, then we will go on trials with the young dukes.”
Everyone looked among themselves. They had never heard of this.
The void border was heavily guarded. It was directed by Saint God Martial himself. God Martial Army was the most elite force at the void border. Yet, they were going there?
Alice poked her tongue. “We are scared you guys wouldn’t agree, so we went to father directly. Father spoke with old man Nangong, and he said we can go directly to the God Martial Army.”
Lu Ze spoke helplessly, “Since the old man has agreed, then we have no reason to object.”
The group chatted for a while and returned to their own homes.
A blazing white ship flew out of the atmosphere. Elliot stared into space.
Old man Nangong’s attitude gave him a lot of guesses. This wasn’t what he imagined.
As several thoughts flew across his mind, Elliot’s eyes revealed some coldness. His ship went back to planet Venus.
The next morning, Lu Ze slowly opened his eyes. He obtained a body of darkness god art orb last night. After using it, he felt his body of darkness god art grew stronger.
Pity, it was already morning now. Otherwise, he would be able to test how strong it had become.
Lu Ze shook his head and went downstairs. Immediately, he heard a knocking sound.
Was it Li and the others?
They had keys, didn’t they?
Lu Ze opened the door. Never did he expect that Elliot would be standing there. Elliot smiled. “Lu Ze, can I come in and have a seat?”
Lu Ze nodded. “Sure.”
Elliot entered the room and studied the place before sitting on the couch.
Lu Ze smiled. “Do you want anything to drink? I have… water.”
Lu Ze suddenly felt the atmosphere turn awkward.
He only drank water.
Lu Ze quickly added, “Drinking water is good for you.” Elliot’s mouth twitched. He hoped Lu Ze would show some fear or at least some seriousness. After all, he was a planetary state! Lu Ze was just a level three mortal evolution state. Perhaps Lu Ze’s combat power barely reached the planetary state, but this was meaningless to him.
Yet, Lu Ze asked him to drink more water?
His smile froze. “You’re really humorous.”
Lu Ze nodded. “I have an interesting soul. I can’t deny that.” Elliot: “…”
His mouth twitched once more, and then, he said, “I came to you this time about Jing Jing.”
Lu Ze nodded. “Mhm, I guessed it.”
He sat down opposite Elliot and then asked, “By the way, do you still want water? I’ll pour some for you.” Elliot: “???”
He forced out a smile. “No need. I’m just here to talk about Jing Jing with you. I’ll be leaving soon.”
Lu Ze nodded. “Okay, what do you want to talk about teacher Nangong?”
Elliot smiled. “You might know. I watched Jing Jing grow up…”
Lu Ze interrupted. “She already told me this last night, and she also said that she only sees you as a big brother from a young age.”
His smile froze again.
Lu Ze looked at Elliot.
Were his words too painful?
Should he pour Elliot some warm water?
Just when Lu Ze was about to speak, Elliot asked, “What are your thoughts about Jing Jing?”
