The next morning, Lu Ze opened his eyes.
One night of cultivation, and he used up three red orbs. His spirit force cultivation level reached core martial state level nine. It increased by two levels in just one night.
At most tomorrow night, he would be able to break through to aperture opening state.
Lu Ze grinned, feeling the powerful spirit force in his body.
This improvement was indeed fast.
Lu Ze got up and left the dorm.
The class was starting again today, but Lu Ze didn’t go because he needed to visit Nangong Jing.
Lin Ling brought Yingying to class.
Yingying really wanted to go to school, so they would naturally satisfy this wish of hers.
The Federal University had long received the notice to let this little girl go wherever she wanted.
They couldn’t stop her even if they wanted to.
The school teachers didn’t know why there was such notice, but since it was an order, they just followed.
Lu Ze wondered what it would be like for the little girl to attend class.
Lu Ze shook his head and flew toward Nangong Jing’s place.
At Nangong Jing’s house once again. Lu Ze knocked at her door. “Female… cough, Teacher Nangong, I’m here.”
The door opened immediately.
Lu Ze walked in and saw Nangong Jing lying on the couch and drinking. The cleaned-up floor was filled up with wine bottles again. Lu Ze was speechless. All she did was drink. Did she not need to cultivate?
But he didn’t ask. A green light flashed in Lu Ze’s eyes, and all the wine bottles were placed neatly in the corner.
Nangong Jing grinned. “You’re here? Let’s go then.”
Then, she started walking toward the door.
Lu Ze asked curiously from behind, “Teacher, who are you bringing me to see?”
Nangong Jing answered, “Jinyao sage.”
Lu Ze’s body trembled. He then looked at Nangong Jing in disbelief. “We’re going to see Jinyao sage??”
That was Jinyao sage!
One of the four sages of the human race! Nangong Jing said, “What’s strange about seeing Jinyao sage? By the way, when that person says something irrelevant just pretend you didn’t hear it.” Lu Ze: “???”
He became dazed for a while and asked, “What’s irrelevant?”
Would Jinyao sage engage in a casual gossip with him?
Nangong Jing frowned and scratched her head. “You will know soon. Just pretend you didn’t hear it.”
Lu Ze quickly nodded. Although he was a bit curious, was this a threat? Nangong Jing reached out her hand, and a flying ship appeared in the empty space.
It was 50 meters long and in the shape of a water drop. It was completely black and inscribed with complex golden prints.
This was her private flying ship, Golden Whirl.
Lu Ze glanced at Nangong Jing’s storage ring.
Her storage ring was really big. It could fit such a huge flying ship.
“Get on,” Nangong Jing said. Subsequently, she went inside.
Lu Ze followed.
Half an hour later, a green planet appeared outside the window.
This was planet Jinyao.
As the ship slowly descended, Nangong Jing reminded, “Remember, no matter what irrelevant things he says, pretend you didn’t hear it.”
Lu Ze nodded. “Okay teacher!”
He was more curious about what Jinyao sage would say now.
Soon, the ship landed.
Lu Ze studied around curiously as he got off.
The ship landed below a waterfall.
The place was shrouded by a dense forest. There were distant beast roars.
Below the waterfall was a huge river. There was a wooden shack by the river, and a skinny old man wearing linen clothes. He was sitting next to the river.
Lu Ze looked curiously. Was he the legendary Jinyao sage?
He didn’t have the temperament of a powerful being at all. He seemed like an ordinary old man.
Nangong Jing and Lu Ze walked over.
The old man said plainly, “You’re here?”
He pointed at the ground. “Sit.”
Seeing Nangong Jing sit down, Lu Ze also copied and sat next to Nangong Jing. Lu Ze just realized what the old man was doing.
There was a fishing rod in his hand.
It was taboo to cause too much noise while fishing. Lu Ze planned to sit down in a careful manner and wait until the sage caught a fish.
At this moment, Jinyao sage said plainly, “You’re Lu Ze, right?”
Lu Ze nodded. “Yes. Greetings, Jinyao sage.”
Jinyao sage turned around, and his skinny face smiled. “I keep hearing about you lately. You did very well on Xiaer battlefield and regarding Yingying.”
Lu Ze smiled awkwardly. “I’m just doing what I should.”
Jinyao sage smiled. “You’re quite handsome too.”
Lu Ze became stunned at his words. He then smiled. “You overpraise me, sage.”
Lu Ze still felt great inside though. Even the sage was complimenting his looks. Was this an official recognition?
At this moment, Nangong Jing suddenly said, “Old man, you’ve been fishing here for three years. Why don’t you stop? You can’t catch anything with the hook. I’ll go down and catch one for you.”
Right at this second, Nangong Jing was about to go in the water.
Jinyao sage quickly turned around and said, “Wait! Jing Jing, you can’t! Fishing would not have any purpose by then!”
Lu Ze: “???”
He looked dazedly at the two.
Jing Jing? This violent alcoholic had a cute name?
Lu Ze grinned. Before he could laugh, Nangong Jing looked over.
Lu Ze quickly put away the smile.
He looked at the two in confusion. What was the relationship between the two?
They seemed close.
Nangong Jing sat down and pointed at Jinyao sage. “My ancestor.”
Lu Ze: “…”
He looked at the two in disbelief.
He knew her family was good but he didn’t expect it was this good?
A descendant of a sage!
A sage that was living! No wonder her talent was that good.
Jinyao sage put down the fishing rod and got up. “Come with me.”
He walked to the wooden shack.
Lu Ze and Nangong Jing got up and followed.
Once inside, they saw an ordinary wooden table and four chairs. Behind the table was a bed with only one cushion.
Jinyao sage sat before the table and indicated that the two should sit as well.
Then, he took out a purple teapot and a few golden leaves. He calmly made the tea.
He poured three cups, one for each person.
Lu Ze looked at the tea leaf and smelled the aroma. He felt it had the feeling of sharp metal blades.
Nangong Jing explained. “This is Jin Ghe leaf. The human race doesn’t have this. It’s only found in the Jin Ghe race. Drinking this would increase the chances of learning metal element god art.”
Lu Ze couldn’t resist widening his eyes. He looked at Nangong Jing in disbelief. “God art can be learned through other things?”
He thought only god art orbs could let people learn god art.
Nangong Jing smiled. “The universe is infinite. Of course, there is, but these things are rather precious. Even this leaf just adds a slight possibility.”
Jinyao sage smiled. “But, it’s quite nice to drink.”
Lu Ze: “…”
This thing should be precious, but Jinyao sage just felt it was good tea.
Lu Ze drank the entire cup. His face suddenly changed.
The tea felt like knives surging in his mouth. It felt like his throat was getting cut.
