Chapter 1145: Stepping Into the Night Sky
Lu Xiaoyu’s gift in swordplay was probably the best amongst everyone Lu Shu had met before.
She had never touched a sword or practised it before but she could attack with sword energy.
If Li Xianyi heard about her skills, he would probably start questioning about his life. Yet, Lu Xiaoyu refused to learn his sword skills. That was rather bizarre.
Most people on Earth understood the idea that one had to make use of one’s gifts in order to survive. However, Lu Xiaoyu gave up everything and stood behind Lu Shu.
It was as though she willingly gave all the recognition to Lu Shu, in order for him to become the star of the show.
“Do you like this unpredictable and chaotic world?” asked Lu Shu.
“No.” Lu Xiaoyu shook her head.
“Neither do I,” sighed Lu Shu, “However, what if one day we realized that the world became like this because of us?”
Lu Xiaoyu shook her head again. “I don’t think so. Is it because we killed the innocent? No. Did the world become chaotic because of our ambitions? No. We can’t take the blame.”
“However, everything happened because of us,” said Lu Shu.
“Then, we shall end this,” said Lu Xiaoyu.
Lu Shu smiled. “That’s what I feel too.”
“Lu Shu.” Lu Xiaoyu suddenly became serious.
“Yes?” Lu Shu turned over.
“Have you ever thought about why you always fell sick when you were young?” asked Lu Xiaoyu.
“Now that I think of it, perhaps it was because I suffered from some injuries,” sighed Lu Shu.
He had always thought that his poor health was because he was born frail and weak and had even secretly bought the Six Flavor Rehmanni to consume. However, now, he realized that it was not as simple as he once thought it was. Perhaps, he had once experienced a near-death encounter.
“No matter who did it,” Lu Xiaoyu said calmly, “They have to pay the price.”
At night, Chen Zuan and Cheng Qiuqiao went over to Lu Shu’s place to have dinner. They brought a new update with them. “A remains in North America is about to be opened.”
Lu Shu was stunned for a moment. It had been a long time since remains were opened. He even thought that no more sites would ever open again.
That was because he realized that even the Luniverse was lagging behind in terms of weaponry. Yet, the relics on Earth were like a mine. At this moment, Lu Shu realized that the site’s appearance was not coincidental but rather purposefully planned by someone.
Tiger Zhi conquered the Blood Devil in the Koh Chang remains. Cloud Yi looked for the small white fish in the Lop Nur remains. However, Chaos ate the small white fish before she could find it…
From Lu Shu’s point of view, the creatures in the remains were probably the “guardians” of the remains. Cloud Yi and Tiger Zhi were very certain about that.
When he recalled that, Lu Shu knew that the guardians were not innocent individuals. The Blood Devil had once revolted and the rules of the remains were determined. The creatures in the remains were unable to unlock the remains by obtaining the relics themselves.
The rule was probably set to prevent the guards from stealing the relics. The Blood Devil could be said to have been sealed in the site.
Therefore, although some people might not know, Lu Shu was aware that the “number” of sites were fixed and would not continue opening forever.
“It had been about one year since a new remains appeared, why did a site suddenly open?” asked Lu Shu.
“I’m not sure, but the intelligence report came from our people and is definitely accurate. Zhong Yutang has already confirmed it several times,” Chen Zuan said as he ate,”He wants us to head over to snatch… to take some treasures back.”
He said it too nicely. After all, the Heavenly Network had three masters and nobody would hand over the sites to others.
Moreover, after Lu Shu knew about the secret of the remains, he would definitely not hand it over to anyone else.
Everything from the remains were precious gems if Lu Shu took them back to the Luniverse. So how Lu Shu would possibly give it to others?
However, he did not think of snatching anything now but rather if he could close the door of the site with Nie Ting and Shi Xuejin.
Of course, based on Nie Ting and Shi Xuejin’s character, they would definitely think about the organization’s reputation. However, all of them probably decided on the same thing in private. Lu Shu called Nie Ting and Shi Xuejin. However, since both of them were eating in the Longmen Fortress, they asked Lu Shu to come over to discuss the matter in person.
“Brother Shu, you have to bring us along this time,” said Chen Zuan suddenly, “We have only been to one overseas mission before, bring us to see the world!”
Cheng Qiuqiao said, “Brother Shu, I want to go too.”
Both of them had advanced to Rank One and nobody would do anything to them if they went overseas.
Chen Zuan was thinking about the worship he would receive from girls overseas. It was as though he was out for a vacation!
As a young man, although he had the ability to dominate the world, he did not have the opportunity to demonstrate it. That made him rather anxious.
“Fine, eat your dinner. I will let Nie Ting know.” Lu Shu put down his chopsticks and left. Currently, the species research team was a small group and the members’ relationships were very good. It would be good if they could bring the two of them along as they could chat with them along the way.
Lu Shu was not afraid that both of them would meet trouble overseas as after all, there was only one Rank One in the entire Phoenix Society in North America…
Chen Zuan, who was behind Lu Shu, was envious. Everyone in the Heavenly Network called Nie Ting Heavenly King Nie. Only Lu Shu called Nie Ting by his full name…
After Lu Shu left, Lu Xiaoyu put down her chopsticks. “I prepared the food. You guys should wash the dishes.”
That night, Lu Xiaoyu cooked. Initially, Lu Shu wanted to cook but Lu Xiaoyu refused to let him.
Chen Zuan looked at Cheng Qiuqiao, “You do it.”
Cheng Qiuqiao looked at Chen Zuan, “Why aren’t you doing it?”
Chen Zuan kept quiet for a while. “Let’s negotiate and each make a compromise.”
“How?” Cheng Qiuqiao was speechless.
“Little Fury shall go…”
Little Fury, who was eating, looked confused.
At this moment, Lu Xiaoyu walked over and took Little Fury away and said in disdain, “Look at both of you! Finish washing the dishes in five minutes, if not, don’t leave!”
Little Fury made funny faces on Lu Xiaoyu’s shoulders. It was great to have a support!
Lu Shu stood outside the door and stepped into a void. At this moment, something strange happened. It was the first time he followed Nie Ting and stepped into a void. However, instead of ending up in the yard where Nie Ting and the rest were at, he stepped into the night sky!
Nevertheless, he was not unfamiliar with that place.
