Chapter 231: Hehe, I’m Black
The next day, the early morning sunlight shone into the house and caused the furniture made of jade-textured wooden materials inside to give off a soft light, with a kind of simple charm circulating in the room.
Genius nestled on Lin Yuan’s chest, sleeping soundly, while Chimey was nestled on his neck. The feathers on the top of its head rubbed against his neck when it moved its little head.
This subtle commotion made him open his eyes. Such a relaxing rest had washed away the exhaustion he had before.
Lin Yuan put Chimey and Genius carefully on the pillow and moved the blanket upward so that both of their heads were exposed.
Then, he picked up a set of clothes that Wen Yu had helped to prepare in advance last night, put them on, and left the room.
He basically never wore white clothes. Now that he had put on a white silk robe, it made his youth aura more outstanding.
As he was heading downstairs, he saw Liu Jie walking out of the kitchen with porridge and side dishes.
Upon seeing Lin Yuan, Liu Jie smiled and said, “Good morning, Lin Yuan.”
Lin Yuan quickly walked down the stairs. “Big Brother Liu, I’ll help you.”
At that moment, Wen Yu came in from outside and said, “Young Master, your delivery has arrived.”
When Lin Yuan heard that, he put the plate of freshly cut fruits he had taken from Liu Jie on the table before he hurriedly headed toward the door.
Since the Class 4 Spirit Craftsman, Hu Quan, was going to deliver the fish tank made of jade-textured red sandalwood tomorrow, Lin Yuan still had a lot of arrangements to prepare for the fish tank.
These newly bought feys from the Star Web had really wasted a lot of Lin Yuan’s effort, as he had been buying them at a high price for the past ten days.
Lin Yuan was a Creation Master. He had never felt how rare the Silver Usneas and Elite Spirit-Siphon Goldfish, which were in high demand, were. But the acquisition of this large batch of feys made him deeply understand how valuable rare fey resources were.
These feys were low-grade ones that Creation Masters had not enhanced, but it had cost Lin Yuan a huge sum of Radiance dollars.
The courier that he had signed for was carrying two Gold fey storage boxes. After signing the receipt, he put them in his Spirit Lock spatial zone and went to the dining hall to eat breakfast with Liu Jie and Wen Yu.
Wen Yu came out of the kitchen and raised the peppermint meat patty and said, “Young Master, I don’t know what ingredients Big Brother Liu added to the peppermint meat patty this morning, but it smells much better than usual.”
Liu Jie said with a smile as he carried a pot of freshly boiled milk, “I used Gold pig feys’ meat for the peppermint meat patty this time, so it smells extra fragrant.”
During the meal, they chatted as usual. However, Lin Yuan could vaguely sense that Liu Jie was much quieter than usual this morning as if he had something on his mind.
Lin Yuan asked straightforwardly, “Big Brother Liu, is there something on your mind?”
Upon hearing that question, the decision that Liu Jie had made last night became firmer, and he replied, “Young Master, I feel that my progress is a bit slow here in the Royal Capital, so I want to go out to train for some time, is that okay?”
Lin Yuan raised his brows as he had thought it was something important, but it turned out to be just this.
“Big Brother Liu, although you’re my retainer knight, I’ve never thought of controlling your life. You still make the decisions in your life. Rather than being my retainer knight, I think we’re more like friends.”
Upon hearing that, Liu Jie felt indescribably touched. He spread a smile on his face, raised the milk in his hand, and said, “Cheers to friendship!”
Three cups hit together, emitting a clear collision sound, and they finished all the milk in the cup.
Liu Jie did not expose Lin Yuan’s identity as Black because he knew he would naturally tell him when he wanted to.
Upon seeing that Liu Jie had nothing more on his mind, Lin Yuan asked, “Big Brother Liu, what are the requirements to take part in the Radiance Hundred Sequence selection?”
Liu Jie was not surprised by Lin Yuan’s question. In his opinion, given Lin Yuan’s strength and age, it would be a pity if he did not compete for the Radiance Hundred Sequence. Thus, Liu Jie told Lin Yuan what he knew.
“The competition for the Radiance Hundred Sequence members is nothing but a test of character, strength, and talent of the younger generation.
“There are three ways to join the selection. The first is the most basic way, which is to become a City Hundred in each of the Radiance Federation’s 32 cities, so as to obtain the qualification for the Radiance Hundred Sequence selection.
“The second way is that those who have made great contributions or outstanding achievements and are younger than 24 years old have the chance to apply to the Federation officials to qualify.
“The third way is to get a letter of recommendation from the top experts of the Radiance Hundred.”
Upon hearing Liu Jie’s words, Lin Yuan nodded in a dazed manner. There was no doubt that the third method was much easier for Lin Yuan.
As long as he had the recommendation letter from his master, the Moon Empress, he could join the Radiance Hundred Sequence selection. However, he still asked, “For the second way, what kind of contribution or achievement is needed?”
Liu Jie answered, “The second way is actually the most difficult compared to the other two. You’ll get merits when you guard the Radiance Federation, obtain some Federation-wide awards, or have your own exclusive achievements on Star Tower. For example, Black’s merits are probably in line with the conditions of the second way.”
Liu Jie’s words made Lin Yuan’s eyes light up. It seemed that he really met the requirements of this second requirement to enter the Radiance Hundred Sequence.
Regardless of his merits, based on his exclusive achievements on Star Web, Lin Yuan completely met the requirements. However, he had received news from the Star Web’s officials, and Black’s virtual image on the Celestial Stairway achievement altar would still take nearly a month.
This included the design and other issues, so it would take more time.
It seemed that it was the easiest if Lin Yuan made use of the Star Tower’s exclusive achievements to obtain the qualification to enter the Radiance Hundred Sequence.
Moreover, Liu Jie had mentioned Black, so Lin Yuan said, “Hehe, Big Brother Liu, I’m Black.”
Lin Yuan had never told him about his identity as Black, as Liu Jie and Wen Yu had never mentioned this. He also felt no need to do so.
Now that he had heard Liu Jie mention it, Lin Yuan naturally had nothing to hide. Anyway, Wen Yu and Liu Jie were one of his own.
There were not many obvious changes on Liu Jie’s face, and the same applied to Wen Yu. Liu Jie had long been surprised when he had found out about it last night. Since he already learned the truth, there was nothing to be surprised about.
However, Lin Yuan had revealed his identity without hiding anything, which made Liu Jie very happy about being trusted by Lin Yuan.
Wen Yu was eating the peppermint meat patty like a hamster and felt nothing at all except expecting it to be a matter of course.
In her opinion, Lin Yuan’s identity as the Moon Empress’ disciple would probably be more prestigious than being the Chief Sequence.
Not only was the Moon Empress a Class 5 Creation Master and the Radiance Federation’s pinnacle expert, but she had also been a Radiance Envoy when she was young.
Lin Yuan looked at Liu Jie and Wen Yu’s expressionless faces and felt stunned.
Were they really not surprised at all?
Lin Yuan was surprised by this. If Lin Yuan were to suddenly find out that Liu Jie was a boss dressed in women’s clothes, he would certainly be astonished.
Lin Yuan took two bites of the peppermint meat patty and asked, “Big Brother Liu, what kind of strength do the Radiance Hundred Sequence members have?”
