More than half a month had passed, and it was spent in fulfillment . Wang Zhong had been so busy that he did not even have time to sleep . Although he had not started on physical cultivation, he had been enriching his perception with various kinds of knowledge .
It was the fourth weekend upon joining the Tyrants . Today was Holy Birth Day . It was different from Christmas on Earth . It was the birthday of Adalia, the Holy Saint Teacher . The weather was exceptionally fine and cloudless, as though it could feel the celebratory mood across the city . There was almost no one in the library, and a salute went off from time to time in the city outside . The music resonated throughout the whole city as well, making the place particularly lively .
Stretching and yawning, Wang Zhong thought about how he had been treating the library as his residence for such a long time . He knew he had to swap between work and rest . Now was time to rest and relax . With that, he felt that it would be good to take advantage of this lively atmosphere to go out and have fun .
The street was full of people who were immersed in celebration . The Holy Birth Day was definitely the biggest festival in the Holy Land every year . As the leader and pioneer of the Holy City and its only Holy Saint Teacher, Adalia’s status was the noblest of all . There was a grand parade on the other side, in the main city area . It was said that that a Sacred Teacher would be attending it . That teacher represented the absolute top of the Holy City . Besides special festivals such as the Holy Birth Day, it was basically impossible for ordinary people to even capture a peek of the Sacred Teacher .
On the other hand, Grai, Laura, and the others booked their spots as early as possible and sent a message to Wang Zhong, asking him to meet up with them . Originally, Wang Zhong was also very interested in seeing the Sacred Teacher, but the flow of people on the street was too turbulent . There were so many people that he could not even squeeze himself over as he had gone out too late . In the end, he had no choice but to give up .
He informed Laura and the rest about his absence and began wandering the streets . He then recalled his agreement with the old man in the mysterious illusionary space previously .
“Why not check it out? It’s the weekend today . Maybe I can still get to eat a bit of Hinami . Mmm…” It was delicious, but when Wang Zhong thought of it, he grew a little nauseous . Recently, Lan Daier’s dishes were getting more and more unpleasant . It was not in terms of taste, but toxicity . The last time, it happened to be a Hinami which caused him to get the stomach flu, and he experienced vomiting and diarrhea for three days . Thus, whenever he saw fish, he would feel like puking . Even though his body was able to resist, Wang Zhong had already begun to feel that the 20 Holy Coins were not really that profitable after all .
“I’ll just take a look and chat with him . It will be alright to not eat, I guess . ”
With this attitude, Wang Zhong brought the last bottle of Samsara wine there . The old man appeared peaceful and humourous to him, and it was very relaxing and natural as they got along with each other . It was especially true after staying in the Holy Land for a long period of time . He had seen many exchanges full of practicalities and benefits, most of which were full of utilitarianism . Everyone was desperately trying to rush forward like a tight clockwork every single day . Wang Zhong felt very fortunate to be able to build such a pure and light-hearted friendship in spite of the age difference, especially with such a tense atmosphere in the Holy City .
Following the street on the A38 district, he quickly found the mysterious barrier he had passed through last time . He went in to take a look and saw that the surroundings had not changed, but the old man was not there . Perhaps it was because of the Holy Birth Day that the old man was out celebrating .
However, since he was already there, he decided to stay . There was a cool breeze by the lake, and the place was filled with fresh air . With the perfect temperature, it was completely tranquil here, and the bustle of the city seemed to be completely cut off . The magical barrier was not simply a kind of illusion barrier, it could also block the transmission of sound, which made people feel a sense of leisure and comfort without any specific reason . Wang Zhong found a big rock by the lake and sat down, feeling the breeze by the lake and enjoying his leisure time which was hard to come by .
Suddenly, his Skylink rang . In the Holy City, the Skylink had little use, mainly due to the restrictions and the shielding of various contacts . Basically, it was only used between particularly close friends or when during team combat . Upon entering the Holy City, people preferred to contact each other face to face .
Some cluttered signal fragments also seemed to have come suddenly . The key thing was that these strings of symbols were really strange; it looked like some kind of coding, as though the other party was constantly trying to make contact .
Looking at the situation, this message seemed to have been sent five or six times, with an interval ranging from two to three days .
“Who are you?” Wang Zhong subconsciously replied . He did not wait long before the other party responded .
It was another string of garbled signals .
However, Wang Zhong felt a sense of familiarity . “I’m Wang Zhong, who are you?”
After a while, the garbled text became clear . “I’m Lao Gong, I finally got in touch with you!”
“Lao Gong”1 was a nickname . This was a comical title that Gong Yi was forced to accept, and Sister Hong and her sisters never got tired of calling him that . Wang Zhong was also speechless . This guy was really a god; he could poke into every nook and cranny . As long as there were people, there was a chance for him to get through .
“Mu Zi is asking for you!”
Wang Zhong grew serious . The connection between them was a little intermittent, but he basically got the message . Aiolos had met with some trouble and needed Mu Zi and Wang Zhong’s help, especially Wang Zhong’s spiritual energy .
Of course, this was a compelling obligation, and Wang Zhong agreed to it without hesitation . At the same time, Wang Zhong also understood one thing: it seemed that the signal interference of the Skylink was not as strong in this place .
Although Mu Zi had yet to confirm the exact time and coordinates with him, the first thing he urgently needed was a Pioneering Order as he was in the Holy City . It was 500 Holy Coins . It seemed that his experimental opportunity had to be postponed .
He had to hand it to Gong Yi for being able to contact him . Gong Yi could definitely establish contact as long as he had connections, and it seemed to be the same for the Holy Land . Although Wang Zhong felt that the Holy Land disliked technological devices, Gong Yi’s intelligence network had still found a way . Everyone had their own way of doing things .
As for the signal, it seemed that this place was overlooked by the Holy Land .
He had originally planned to chat longer and ask Gong Yi about their situation, but it was really painful to chat with this intermittent, monosyllabic signal . They merely spoke about two or three sentences before they grew annoyed . After explaining a little about the particularity of his location, he agreed with Gong Yi that he would come here every weekend to receive his signal . With that, Wang Zhong hung up the Skylink .
Wang Zhong was elated to contact an old friend on Earth . Excitement grew as he thought about going on an exploration with Mu Zi and Aiolos . Today, at Wang Zhong’s current level, he had finally been able to peer into Mu Zi’s realm . Mu Zi’s stage was really sky-high . He had once thought that Mu Zi was only “a little stronger” than him, but he now realized that it was totally untrue . As for Aiolos, he felt even more incomprehensible . Deep down, he faintly felt that the guy might have even reached the Heavenly Soul Stage .
But a secret realm that Mu Zi and Aiolos could not handle . What kind of place would it be? Wang Zhong was looking forward to exploring the place .
Wang Zhong was thinking over it when Uncle Zhang leisurely walked over, carrying a fishing basket . When he saw Wang Zhong, he appeared rather surprised . “It’s the Holy Birth Day, kiddo . How come you didn’t take your girlfriend on a date?”
His original intention was to relax with Uncle Zhang . He had assumed that Uncle Zhang would not come today, but it turned out that Uncle Zhang was simply late . Wang Zhong laughed . The best feeling of chatting with Uncle Zhang was that he felt no pressure; thus, he spoke his mind freely, “I’m single . I don’t have a girlfriend . ”
