Chapter 355: Why Thank Him?
Chapter 355: Why Thank Him?
Liu Jie was not a Creation Master, so he could not fully understand the source-type Cocoon of Evolution’s function.
Nonetheless, Liu Jie was ultimately an experienced spirit qi professional and could feel whether he could use it or not when he obtained a source-type item.
Lin Yuan watched as Liu Jie looked up with surprise in his eyes. His hand holding the Cocoon of Evolution was trembling slightly because of the great joy. Lin Yuan then explained to Liu Jie the use of the source-type Cocoon of Evolution.
Liu Jie heard this youth with a bright smile in front of him say, “Big Brother Liu, this Cocoon of Evolution is not for you to contract. It’s for the Insect Queen to contract and parasitize.
“At that time, the Insect Queen just needs to supply it the nutrients to improve its grade and quality. Every time the Cocoon of Evolution’s grade is increased, the Insect Queen’s ability can be enhanced once.”
Liu Jie had long known that he could not contract feys or source-type items after contracting the Insect Queen. However, when he got this source-type Cocoon of Evolution, he unexpectedly found that he could contract it.
This was akin to giving Liu Jie another path to tread through, regardless of whether the source-type item in his hand was very suitable for him.
However, Liu Jie’s situation made him unqualified to say that he would rather go without something than having something shoddy.
When he heard the smiling youth’s words, Liu Jie felt a bright firework explode in his mind, creating the most beautiful floating life scroll.
No one in this world knew himself and the Insect Queen better than Liu Jie. Therefore, he was well aware of what Lin Yuan meant and what this Cocoon of Evolution in his hands signified.
Not only did it mean that the Insect Queen could become stronger, but he could also follow the path he had chosen before.
The corners of Liu Jie’s eyes suddenly moistened, and a drop of hot tear diffused without a trace on the wing of his nose, as if it had never been there.
He had never shed a tear during the three years of silence and despair. If there was anything in this world that could make Liu Jie cry, it must be tears of joy.
Liu Jie’s eyes were full of gratitude, but he did not say words of thanks like before.
When he had been in desperate straits, this youth had lit up the light and saved the Insect Queen and him when they were in imminent danger.
When he had been enhancing feys, this youth had ignited the torch and given him a chance. He would not make the same mistake twice.
When he had denied himself for the first time and tried to find a way out on the path he had discarded, this youth had raised the sun and lit up the path that he could not cross so that he could firmly follow his own choice and go on.
For the grace of giving him a new lease of life twice, any kind of gratitude would seem hypocritical. Thus, Liu Jie did not say any words of thanks.
This was faith, and he intended to repay him with his life. Why did he have to thank him?
In Liu Jie’s opinion, no matter how strong he would become in the future, it was only to protect this youth in front of him.
Lin Yuan was smiling, and so was Liu Jie.
However, Lin Yuan was smiling because this source-type Cocoon of Evolution had helped Liu Jie open up his heart and be firm on the path to take. On the other hand, Liu Jie was smiling because it contained his silent gratitude and faith.
After sitting with Liu Jie for a while, Lin Yuan planned to proceed to the Celestial Stairway and grapple with his opponents.
The Celestial Stairway 2v2 duel format Liu Jie had mentioned would be announced within this month.
Lin Yuan was still a Celestial 1-Star. If he wanted to form a two-man squad with Liu Jie for this two-man team competition, he had to at least reach Celestial 12-Star from within this month.
Lin Yuan could not be sure that he could beat everyone on the Celestial Stairway as many of them were experts. If he encountered someone who was stuck at a certain star on the Celestial Stairway and doing live-streaming for effect—even if Lin Yuan now had the Gold I/Fantasy I Source Sand as his trump card—he did not dare to be sure that he could beat everyone.
He could very likely take a turn for the worse at some point, but the chances of this happening were tiny. Lin Yuan just had to have more wins than losses by 11 duels.
This time, he logged onto Star Web as Black and was ready to go straight to the Celestial Stairway for the duels.
However, he did not know that the Star Web private territory he had established with his identity as a Creation Master had become the laughingstock of the factions that had also established their private Star Web territories last night.
In fact, the veteran factions that had already established their Star Web territories were fine. The veteran factions had a deep foundation, and most of them despised the rising factions with only little foundation.
Most of the rising factions with some foundation despised the rising factions without foundation.
The chain of contempt rendered under the sense of superiority made those rising factions without foundation be at the bottom.
However, they had suddenly found a faction that had just established a Star Web territory. These rising factions without foundation were thinking of paying a visit.
Regardless of whether the new Star Web factions were strong or had a deep foundation, there was no harm for rising factions to visit them.
If this new Star Web faction was strong, they would think of it as going to build a good impression. If not, they could always work together with each other.
Lin Yuan did not block external access to the private faction.
When these rising factions without foundation saw that Lin Yuan’s faction’s exterior remained unchanged at the time of opening, it was as though they had discovered a new continent and finally found the target of their contempt.
The construction of private Star Web faction territories was a kind of diplomacy with other factions to show their foundation.
Lin Yuan’s newly established private faction territory had been treated as a talking point by these rising factions as a show of superiority. However, those rising factions did not take Lin Yuan’s private faction seriously.
After all, if these rising factions with some foundation wanted to find a sense of superiority, they could do so from those rising factions without foundation.
It was like a person could find superiority over someone who was slightly worse. But with someone who was too superior, this sense of superiority would have been very faint. After all, the difference was vast.
