Under the pressure of the other three girls’ weird glances, Lu Ze retreated in defeat. Even Yingying lowered her head obediently.
Eventually, they decided to find a hotel to rest for the night.
Other than Lu Ze, Nangong Jing, Qiuyue Hesha, and Lin Ling were all very rich. They found an expensive hotel and booked a suite.
Everyone went to take a shower and proceeded to their respective rooms.
The next morning at six o’clock in the morning. Lu Ze opened his eyes.
He looked outside the window. The sun that had just risen radiated a golden light. Gentle sunlight poured into the room. The corners of Lu Ze’s mouth was slightly raised.
What a familiar scene!
He got off the bed and walked out of the room. At this moment, Nangong Jing’s door opened, and she walked out of her room already dressed.
She was still carrying a bottle of wine.
Seeing this, Lu Ze’s mouth twitched. “Teacher Nangong, you’re drinking in the morning?”
Nangong Jing grinned. “Ze, do you want some? Today’s your big day. How about you drink some to celebrate?”
Qiuyue Hesha’s door opened as well. With a lazy tone, she said, “T-Rex, you really have muscles in your brain. You’re asking little brother Lu Ze to drink before going to the Palace of Heroes?”
Nangong Jing just remembered that they were going to the Palace of Heroes. This was a very serious matter.
Nangong Jing argued with some awkwardness, “This is just fermented water. You can’t say water is wine.”
Lu Ze: “…”
Qiuyue Hesha: “….”
They looked away. This alcoholic was beyond help.
Soon, Lin Ling came out of her room too.
Nangong Jing said, “Okay, I’ll take you guys near the Palace of Heroes. You need to get there early. When we pay respects to the heroes, you need to change into the appropriate garments.”
Lu Ze and Lin Ling nodded in understanding.
The ceremony started at nine, so they didn’t think about having breakfast.
After leaving the hotel, Nangong Jing and Qiuyue Hesha took Lu Ze and Lin Ling toward the south.
The Palace of Heroes had always been guarded by Saint Lin Dong. Of course, he wasn’t just guarding the palace, he’s guarding the entire solar system.
Half an hour later, the group came near Antarctica.
The ice covered the ground, and blizzards loomed over the continent.
Lu Ze felt dazed upon witnessing this blizzard. He can’t remember that there was such a terrifying blizzard in Antarctica back in the Earth era.
Then, Lu Ze guessed this was probably Saint Lin Dong’s means? Even he could barely change the weather.
At this moment, 12 white-armored soldiers flew out of the blizzard.
Their chi was powerful, and they were all aperture opening states. On the other hand, the captain of the squad was a mortal evolution state.
Their power was on par with the Jin Yao city guards.
Soon, these soldiers came to Lu Ze and the rest. The captain nodded to Nangong Jing and Qiuyue Hesha.
“Young duke Jing and Hesha, please stop there. We will take Lu Ze and Lin Ling inside.”
Qiuyue Hesha smiled. “Thank you.”
The guards felt stunned for a moment, but they managed to quickly recover.
Nangong Jing said to Lu Ze and Lin Ling, “You guys go in then. We’ll be watching the live stream at the hotel.”
Lu Ze and Lin Ling nodded.
Yingying waved her hand from Qiuyue Hesha’s arms. “Goodbye Lu Ze, sister Ling.”
Thereafter, Lu Ze and Lin Ling followed the guards inside the blizzard.
When the two had completely disappeared. Nangong Jing, Qiuyue Hesha, and Yingying went back.
Soon, Lu Ze and Lin Ling arrived at a huge city that was made completely of white crystal.
The city had a diameter of 100 kilometers, and half of that was occupied by a huge palace.
The palace was also made of pure ice. It looked extremely beautiful.
The captain turned to Lu Ze and Lin Ling and introduced, “This is the City of Heroes, and in the center is the Palace of Heroes.”
Lu Ze looked at that huge palace in shock.
This was the Palace of Heroes?
The two felt surprised.
Everyone who came here for the first time had the same reactions.
The captain said, “It’s forbidden to fly above the city of heroes. We’ll enter the city gates. Please follow me.”
The squad landed. Lu Ze and Lin Ling quickly followed.
They stopped before the city gates. There were two squads of soldiers standing on the side like sculptures.
Subsequently, they took Lu Ze and Lin Ling inside the city. The two looked around curiously. There weren’t many constructions in the city, but there were all sorts of ice sculptures.
The ice sculptures depicted various battle scenes. One side was humans and the other side was other races.
Were these the tragic battles of the predecessors?
The two watched as they walked. Soon, they reached an ice crystal building that was five stories high.
The guards halted, and the captain said, “You need to take a shower and get changed before you pay respect to the heroes. Please go in. At 8:30, we will take you to the Palace of Heroes. There, Saint Lin Dong will appoint you two as young dukes.”
The two nodded and went in.
While Lu Ze and Lin Ling were changing their clothes, countless people in the Federation were waiting before their screens for the ceremony.
Every time a new young duke was born, it meant that there will be a new powerful being for the Federation. This was a celebration for the entire Federation.
On planet Lan Jiang, in Lu Ze’s home, Lu Wen, Fu Shuya, Lu Li, Merlin, Alice, and a black-haired beautiful woman who resembled Alice were waiting for the beginning of the ceremony.
Lu Wen wanted to pretend that he didn’t care, but he couldn’t control his smile.
Meanwhile, Fu Shuya didn’t hide her smile at all. If today wasn’t a holiday, they would let everyone in the company to watch their son Thinking about how all of her friends would look at her with envy, she felt great.
At this moment, the beautiful woman exclaimed, “Ze is indeed excellent. He became a young duke at 18 and has already surpassed most young dukes. He’s far stronger than I am and Merlin when we were his age.”
Merlin’s mouth twitched. He laughed dryly “Hahaha… Hong Lian is too right. Lu Ze is indeed strong…”
Alice said proudly, “Mother is right! Senior is the strongest!”
Merlin’s face sunk.
