Chapter 98: You Deserve This Bow
Dragon Boat Translation Dragon Boat Translation
Under the moonlight, Alice saw how dazed Lu Ze was and her eyes flashed. She smiled and sat next to him again before saying, “I suddenly realized something. The current me is like a pet. I need to be fed light orbs by senior schoolmate every day.”
Lu Ze’s mouth twitched. He said awkwardly, “Alice, don’t say that!”
For some reason, when she said that, a bone-chilling frigidness shot up his spine.
Pet… feels a bit over the line…
He smiled. “Alice, just cook more for me, that will be enough compensation.”
Alice turned around and smiled. “In that case, I’ll be senior schoolmate’s personal chef!”
Lu Ze’s eyes lit up. “Really?!”
Having delicious food every day… What could be better than that?
Seeing how happy Lu Ze was, Alice smiled and her eyes turned into a slit. “Mhm, really!”
At this moment, a figure suddenly appeared next to the two. They had a handsome face that was extremely stiff.
Lu Ze looked at the golden-haired man who suddenly appeared and was startled.
Is that a ghost?!
Alice’s eyes widened as she said, “Father, what are you doing here?”
When Alice’s father saw how embarrassed his daughter was, his mouth spasmed.
Oh my! If I didn’t come, would she of given herself over?
No… was she was almost about to now?
He suddenly felt that his cute little daughter was leaving him.
At this moment, he finally felt what Lu Wen felt.
Lu Ze got up and smiled. “Hello, uncle.”
Alice’s father nodded. His eyes flashed as he looked at Lu Ze with a complicated expression on his face. “Lu Ze… if you don’t mind, I’ll call you Ze.”
Lu Ze was confused but he still nodded. “Of course I don’t mind!”
This was a powerful star state being. He best hug his legs!
Then, Lu Ze and Alice were shocked further, as this star state boss bent his straight back and bowed to Lu Ze.
Lu Ze wanted to dodge it.
What a joke. Even if he was just an ordinary person, he was still Alice’s father. How could he accept this?
Yet, Lu Ze found that his body was locked in place. He couldn’t move at all.
Alice’s father’s sincere voice sounded, “Don’t move, you deserve this! The two greatest treasures of Merlin Hephaestus were saved by you. You deserve this bow!”
Alice’s eyes flashed as she looked at her father then her senior schoolmate. She covered her mouth and went into contemplation.
She had grown up listening to the legends of her father.
Her father, Merlin Hephaestus, became the Pale Flame Young Duke three hundred years ago. In 200 years, he broke through the mortal evolution state and planetary state and became a star state being a hundred years ago. Then, he left the public’s view.
After all, for people above the planetary level, cultivation breakthroughs were the most important things. There would be other people handling politics instead of those beings.
He was a prodigy at the same level as her senior schoolmate.
When her father just broke through to the star state a hundred years ago, he didn’t even bend his back to three star level beings from the evil shadow race who ganged up on him. He killed them all at the risk of heavy injuries.
Yet, he chose to bow to Lu Ze for her and her mother…
Lu Ze looked at this bowing star state being with a complicated expression.
This was a father who took in the flame backlash for his own daughter and endured the burning sensation of the source flame for 12 years.
Lu Ze felt that even if Merlin wasn’t a powerful being, he was a respectable man.
However, Lu Ze didn’t expect that Merlin would come here.
He glanced at this man strangely.
He didn’t follow Alice this whole time, did he?
Lu Ze’s mouth spasmed. Is this guy a stalker?
A moment later, Merlin straightened his back and said seriously, “Ze, you’re a prodigy and you will definitely become a supporting pillar of the human race in the future. I’ll be straight forward with some things. The energy you produced through your god art would be very effective in cultivating prodigies for the human race. If you have extra, I hope you can provide it to other prodigies. I will make the higher-ups use other things to exchange for your energy. Don’t worry, with me here, I won’t let you lose out!”
Lu Ze nodded. “I know. The level of my god art is still low, so I don’t have any extra. When I do, I will give it to the other prodigies.”
He wasn’t invincible in the pocket hunting dimension, he could explode at any time.
And, he also needed to increase his own power first. In order to do that, he would have to kill higher leveled beasts.
He also needed to save the low levels for Lu Li and Alice.
Merlin felt regretful. If there was more, it would be very helpful in cultivating prodigies, but now…
Alice came first, of course!
Then, he looked at Lu Ze with a complicated gaze. “To be honest, I hope you can grow in a safe environment… but I believe you probably don’t want that yourself. Even prodigies find it difficult to make breakthroughs without trial by blood and fire…”
As one of the current peak level fighting powers of the human race and a previous young duke, Merlin knew this too well.
He looked seriously at Lu Ze. “…I only hope that you make staying alive your top priority.”
Seeing this, Lu Ze nodded genuinely. “I will.”
Merlin smiled and patted Lu Ze’s shoulder. “Aside from that, you actually saved Alice. If there’s anything you want me to do, just tell me. If it is within my capabilities, I’ll do it!”
Then he paused and looked at Lu Ze with vigilance. “Don’t think about letting Alice become your girlfriend!”
Lu Ze: “…”
Oh my, is every father a control freak over their daughters?
Alice’s face turned red. She patted Merlin’s back and shouted, “Father! What are you talking about?!”
She was very embarrassed!
Merlin laughed awkwardly. “Tell me what you want me to do.”
Lu Ze smiled and said, “Since uncle is on planet Lanjiang, please protect my family after I leave.”
Merlin was left dazed as he looked at Lu Ze with a softer gaze
Valuing one’s family was respectable.
He nodded firmly. “With me here, your family is definitely safe.”
This was a promise coming from a star state being. One promise was worth 1000 stars.
