Chapter 409 Play Along With It
All the mortal evolution state prodigies who were anxious let out a sigh of relief
If that cannon couldn’t kill the void beast, then it would be another round of trouble.
Everyone else, including the audience and the defense force, also breathed easy.
They felt sorry for Lu Ze who had to endure such pain while using space god art just to distract the void beast.
The pack of void beasts behind the fleet witnessed the gruesome death of their boss and froze. Now, they didn’t even dare to roar. Instead, they chose to flee back toward the bigger pack. Lu Ze only glanced at them. He didn’t pursue them anymore and proceeded to return to the fleet.
On the other hand, the fleet had broken free from its pursuers. Those mortal evolution state prodigies were gathered in the exit hatch, waiting for Lu Ze to come back, so they could go in together. By the time Lu Ze arrived, everyone looked over with somewhat different eyes.
Ling Dongyu took the initiative to speak with gratefulness first. “Lieutenant Colonel Lu Ze, thank you so much for this time. I will report your contribution to the Federation.” If it wasn’t for Lu Ze, they would lose quite some ships in the course of breaking free.
Lu Ze smiled in response. “Sure, thank you, Commander Ling.”
There was a reward, great!
Lu Ze wondered whether he could ask Ling Dongyu to get him a few more Xingzhan pancakes. He would ask him secretly later.
Ling Dongyu quickly waved his hand and smiled. “If it wasn’t for you, our fleet would suffer heavy losses.”
Qiu Dongyi exclaimed, “Lu Ze, I thought I’ve tried to overestimate you, but your power still exceeded my predictions.”
The Kurter couple nodded as well. “Indeed, space god art…”
Everyone looked at Lu Ze admiringly.
In turn, Lu Ze scratched his head in embarrassment. Lin Ling glanced at him and rolled her eyes. This guy was going to get cocky. At this moment, the door to the inside opened, and Ling Dongyu beamed. “Thank you, everyone. At the end of the mission, I will report everyone’s contributions.”
Hearing this, everyone grinned as well. This meant more rewards and resources. Subsequently, everyone entered the ship with satisfaction.
Old Yang brought a few soldiers over and looked excitedly at Lu Ze. “Lieutenant Colonel Lu Ze, thank you so much this time. Despite receiving the backlash from your god art, you still distracted the void beast.”
Lu Ze: “???”
Since when did that happen? How come he didn’t know about it?
Other people felt stunned too.
Ling Dongyu asked, “Old Yang, what backlash?”
They were too far from Lu Ze a while ago. Moreover, they had to take care of void beasts in front of them, so naturally, they didn’t see Lu Ze’s expression.
Lin Ling looked at Lu Ze dubiously. There weren’t any signs that he received a backlash. This guy’s space god art shouldn’t have any adverse effects.
Old Yang explained, “After Lu Ze used space god art, there was a backlash. His expression even worsened. Despite this, he kept on diverting the attention of the void beast.”
With this, those who were at the mortal evolution states looked at Lu Ze with more complicated eyes.
Lu Ze: “…”
These guys were really imaginative. He was just hurt that his orbs were being used up so much! But of course, he couldn’t say that now.
Old Li couldn’t resist sighing. “Lu Ze is so young and yet so righteous… I feel embarrassed.”
Lu Ze scratched his head. “Hahaha… you praise me too much. It’s no big deal…”
What could he do? He could only cooperate and play along with it….
At this moment, Lin Ling’s voice could be heard in Lu Ze’s head. “Ze, did you really experience a backlash?”
Lu Ze, who felt speechless, replied, “No, I just used my orbs to replenish my energy, and it pained my heart to see so much of them disappear. My face didn’t look so good, but they thought it was a backlash…”
Lin Ling: “…”
She didn’t know what to say.
Her expression suddenly changed. That guy was using all those precious orbs to replenish his energy?!
Her heart twisted in pain as her face bore an ugly expression.
“Lin Ling, are you still worried about Lu Ze? He’s really safe now.” Old Yang tried to reassure her.
Youth… sigh. Lin Ling: “…” Her mouth spasmed under the teasing gazes of the mortal evolution state people. Yes, she was worried but not about that retard!
Everyone returned to their previous room, and the fleet soon approached the border of the defense line.
When Lu Ze saw three huge artificial moons with over 1000 kilometers diameter, he felt dazed. This was the first time that he saw an asteroid being utilized to build defenses. This felt pretty high class.
The fleet went around the battlefield and entered the defense line from the side. It then stopped outside the middle artificial moon.
The door opened, and Ling Dongyu, together with old Yang, walked in again.Ling Dongyu smiled. “Everyone, we have reached the defense line. Follow me. There will be ships escorting you into the base. The defense force of our Gracious System will be heading to our designated area.”
Thereafter, they followed Ling Dongyu to a small ship parking lot on the mothership.
Ling Dongyu, old Yang, and the high-levels of the defense force saluted to Lu Ze and rest. “Best wishes to all of you!”
It was unlikely that they would be battling in the same area. They didn’t even know where these mortal evolution states would be sent to.
Eventually, Lu Ze and the others entered a small ship, and they subsequently flew off toward the moon.
After this, Ling Dongyu bellowed, “Prepare to join the battle!”
The small ship soon landed on the moon. Accordingly, everyone alighted. After stepping on the solid ground, Lu Ze sighed. The solid ground felt good. Humans were born and raised on the ground after all. That battle in space didn’t feel so suitable.
As soon as they exited the ship, two soldiers who were wearing combat armor came out. They bowed to Lu Ze and the rest. Following this, the soldier on the left said, “Thank you, everyone, for coming to lend your support. You are the first group of powerful people to arrive. We are under an extremely desperate situation, so we’ll send you directly to the area that requires help urgently.” The group didn’t expect the defense force of Ena System to address the situation directly as soon as they entered. However, this also meant that they were rather short on people.
