Lu Ze, who just finished cultivating, naturally didn’t know that the outside world was aware of their entry to the dao enlightenment room. When he saw how the four people were looking at him and Lin Ling with a stunned expression, he felt a bit embarrassed.
Why were these guys staring at him like this?
However, the dao enlightenment room can’t be vacant. Nangong Jing said so previously when they first came in. The system even reminded him when the time was used up, so this matter should be quite important.
He then smiled at the strangers. “The next two can go in, don’t leave the dao enlightenment room empty.” Since he was not sure whether it was their first time and he had already spent an entire month in the room, Lu Ze felt like he had the obligation to teach these noobs.
Hearing this, the four came back to their senses. The two students smiled at Lu Ze and Lin Ling and walked in.
The remaining two elders waited for the next ones and glanced at Lu Ze and Lin Ling from time to time. At this moment, Lin Ling smiled at Lu Ze. “Ze, let’s spar when we get back!”
Her tone was quite confident. Clearly, she was very happy with her progress.
Lu Ze raised a brow and joked. “You’re not scared of losing?”
“Hmph! You might not win.” Lin Ling rolled her eyes.
This guy was always this confident. With her progress, she should not lose to him, right?? Lin Ling held on to this belief.
After all, she had received the sage’s origin power. She even progressed very fast. In a month, her spirit force cultivation level reached 100 apertures. With the god art she learned and the Linxi Treasure Manual divine art, she improved even more.
More importantly, her spirit eye god art was very useful in the dao enlightenment room. Perhaps, other people could only vaguely sense the laws in the dao enlightenment room, but she can see it clearly as her god art grows. She even learned strength god art from the dao enlightenment room.
This was definitely a surprise for her!
Now, her combat power definitely wouldn’t be lower than 300 apertures!
She used her spirit eye to check on Lu Ze’s progress. She had discovered that his spirit force cultivation level was far weaker than her. His body was stronger than hers, but with god art and divine art, she became confident!
Thinking about how Lu Ze beat her every time and having the opportunity to beat Lu Ze this time, she grinned. Finally, she would be able to get back at him.
Seeing her expression, Lu Ze became speechless. “Stop smiling like an idiot. If you want to fight, of course, I won’t’ mind. Just don’t cry if you lose.”
“You will be the one crying!” Lin Ling glared at him when she heard the words. She hadn’t cried for so long, and she wouldn’t cry in the future.
At this moment, two more doors opened. Nangong Jing and Qiuyue Hesha walked out.
They seem very spirited and had a smile pasted on their faces. Clearly, they benefited hugely too.
Seeing Lu Ze and Lin Ling outside, they walked over.
Nangong Jing grinned. “How do you feel?”
Lu Ze nodded. “Not bad.” On the other hand, Lin Ling also nodded. “I’ve benefitted a lot.”
Qiuyue Hesha smiled. “Then, let’s go out first. We’ll go pick up Yingying. I haven’t seen her for a month. I miss that little girl.” The three looked strangely at Qiuyue Hesha.
They couldn’t tell at all that she liked kids. But indeed, they haven’t seen her for a month. They wondered how she was at old man Nangong’s place.
The four started walking out.
They came to the city gates again.
The guard has changed. It wasn’t Luo Bingqing anymore but a skinny brown-haired youth.
Seeing them, the youth’s eyes lit up. “Nangong, I heard old Luo say that you guys actually got a month in the dao enlightenment room! What mission did you complete? This reward is too big. I’m so envious. How is it?”
Lu Ze’s mouth spasmed. This guy was probably a young duke, but he was very garrulous.
Nangong Jing smiled. “Not bad, next year at the Four-race social gathering, I’ll protect you all!”
The youth said happily, “That’s good, I can relax a little then.”
He looked at Qiuyue Hesha, and his mouth spasmed. He didn’t say anything.
Then, he looked at Lu Ze and Lin Ling. Just when he was planning to speak, Qiuyue Hesha interrupted. “Derrick, focus on guarding the city gates. We won’t’ disturb you.”
Then, she walked outside.
Seeing this, Nangong Jing smiled at the Derrick who felt awkward. “Then, we’ll be going.” Subsequently, she motioned to Lu Ze and Lin Ling to follow. The two quickly followed.
On the ship, Lu Ze asked curiously, “Is that Derrick a young duke too?”
Nangong Jing smiled. “Yes, he’s not bad, but he is a little weaker than us.”
Then, she said, “That Derrick is a suitor of the pink-haired fox.”
Lu Ze and Lin Ling became dazed at her words. No wonder Qiuyue Hesha reacted that strangely.
So he liked Qiuyue Hesha?
Lu Ze glanced at the calm-faced Qiuyue Hesha. She was indeed pretty. Her temperament was very seductive. Probably, all men liked her type.
Qiuyue Hesha sat lazily on the couch and stretched. “I’m so pretty, isn’t it normal for people to like me?” Lu Ze: “…”
Lin Ling: “…”
Nangong Jing: “…”
That was true, but saying it like that by yourself would make you seem narcissistic!
Lu Ze just remembered that her home was full of her posters.
Did she love herself?
The atmosphere became strange.
Luckily, going back to old man Nangong’s shack only took a few minutes.
The four got off outside the shack.
Then, they saw the old man Nangong and Yingying sitting by the river. Old man Nangong had a big fishing rod while Yingying had a small fishing rod. Both their faces were exactly the same. They all looked hopefully at the line.
Lu Ze and the other three: “…”
Seeing their synchronized faces, the four felt it was funny.
However, they didn’t expect Yingying would patiently fish.
Thinking about it, Yingying was indeed quiet and didn’t have much expression.
She could patiently watch cartoons for an entire day.
Now, she seemed to have an extra hobby.
The four didn’t disturb the two and just watched silently. Moments later, Yingying’s eyes flashed and she lifted her rod. A huge splashed could be heard, and then, a four-meter long hideous looking fish flew out.
Yingying was only one meter tall and used a small rod to fish out such a huge fish. This made the four wear a stunned expression.
At this moment, Yingying looked at the fish and pulled old man Nangong. Her voice was slightly excited. “Grandpa, I caught a small fish!”
The four were speechless.
The fish slowly landed from the air, and old man Nangong said joyfully, “Yingying is really amazing, grandpa will cook this fish for you.” The old man didn’t do anything, and the fish suddenly stopped moving and died. Following this, the fish landed in front of the old man, and then, he patted the fish. All the scales and tales were wiped away.
Lu Ze and Lin Ling’s eyes widened. What was this?
They didn’t feel any power. It was just a casual pat, and it had such an effect?
Under Yingying’s hopeful eyes, old man Nangong soon cleaned up the fish and took out a huge roasting rack and sets of spices. Seeing old man Nangong attentively roast the fish, their mouth twitched.
Why were you so familiar with it?
At this moment, old man Nangong said, “Your cultivation has finished? It seems your progress is quite good. Not bad.”
The four smiled.
The old man continued, “If you want to eat roasted fish, go fish yourself. This one is for Yingying.” Their smiles stiffened.
It had only been a month, and this old man spoiled Yingying so much.
At this moment, the old man said, “Oh yeah, get me a fish too.”
