Soul Land IV (Douluo Dalu) : Ultimate Fighting - Chapter 680 - Xiuxiu, Let’s Date
680 – Xiuxiu, Let’s Date
“Lan Xuanyu, did you know? When you were almost killed by the explosion, I had seen that rank 8 Proto Dragon explode but I couldn’t do anything, I thought of Daddy and Mommy. Back then, Daddy and Mommy died just like that. At that moment, I lost everything and became an orphan. The immense pain even caused me to lose my memories of that period. At that time, I lived in a cold world every day and no matter how the outside world changed, my heart remained as cold as ice. Everything in the outside world seemed to have broken away from me and I was like a walking corpse.”
“After I met Teacher Nana, I found her so beautiful and she treated me very, very well. Although she didn’t say much, I could feel her genuine concern for me. My heart gradually warmed up. After that, I met you. Although you were quite annoying at that time, when I was with you, I was able to forget about my father and mother’s deaths. And at that time, I felt that you looked very much like the person who avenged my father and mother. I couldn’t help but feel close to you.”
“In my life, I have you guys and my teammates. I’m no longer in a cold and gray, but a colorful world. And today, you almost brought me back to the past. I’m really, really scared. I’m really scared. Remember your promise just now. If you can’t do it, stay away from me and don’t enter my inner world again because I’m really scared of that pain. Do you know that?”
Bai Xiuxiu’s voice trembled the entire time, causing Lan Xuanyu’s heart to ache. He subconsciously hugged her tightly.
“Xiuxiu, I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’m sorry…” He didn’t know what to say and only wanted to say these three words to her.
Bai Xiuxiu didn’t say another word and just hugged him. She seemed to feel that his breathing wasn’t smooth, so she relaxed her arms slightly and leaned her head on his shoulder. The trembling in her body gradually stopped with his warmth.
Lan Xuanyu gently caressed her long hair and felt that his Xiuxiu was back. Bai Xiuxiu’s words and his self-reflection left a deep impression on him.
In fact, when he had chosen to take the risk, he actually had another trump card deep in his heart—the Golden-Eyed Black Dragon King, Beast God Di Tian. When his life was truly in danger, the Beast God would definitely choose to take action in order to survive. But this time, Di Tian didn’t appear. It was unknown whether it was because he knew that he would be saved or if the Beast God simply couldn’t save him.
In any case, ever since the Beast God fell into a deep slumber in his body, it had never woken up again to communicate with him. If not for the increase in his spiritual power, he would have wondered whether he had really fused with the Beast God.
But despite still having this trump card, Lan Xuanyu knew that his risk this time was simply too unwise. Perhaps the greatest gain from this mandatory mission was this lesson and not the Dragon Source Crystals they had harvested.
“Xiuxiu, do you want to date me?” Lan Xuanyu said softly. “I can’t control my emotions anymore.”
Bai Xiuxiu let go of him and suddenly pushed him away. “I’m against premature love. I’m still underage, I’m still a baby.”
“Uh…” Lan Xuanyu looked at her beautiful face that still had the ringmaster hanging on it, her eyes were slightly red and swollen, and the softest part of his heart was touched. “Alright, alright, I’ll listen to you. Whatever you say.”
“Hmph!” Bai Xiuxiu scoffed and rolled her eyes at her.
“You hummed so beautifully. Hmph again.” Lan Xuanyu chuckled.
“Hmph! Hmph! Hmph!” Bai Xiuxiu scoffed before kicking Lan Xuanyu.
Lan Xuanyu hugged her leg and laughed. “Your humming sounds really nice. Two more.”
Bai Xiuxiu pouted her red lips. “You’re so annoying, get out. What are you doing in my room?” As she spoke, she pulled her ankle out of bed and pushed him out.
Lan Xuanyu was pushed out of the room and Bai Xiuxiu closed the door. She was afraid that if she didn’t push him out, she would laugh out loud when seeing the dark circles around his eyes.
It must have been quite painful. Why did I use so much force?
No, wait, he deserved that beating, he deserved it ! Hmph!
“Hmph!” Bai Xiuxiu couldn’t help but snort again. After that, she couldn’t help but laugh.
Lan Xuanyu rubbed his nose and felt much better. He was glad that he had so many good partners and such a good future girlfriend. When his heart fluctuated, with them around, he recovered very quickly.
He didn’t know what the subsequent battles would be like, and he didn’t want to care anymore. Since the base of Dragon Source Planet had come up with such a plan, they must have the confidence to face the Proto Dragon Tide.
They had killed enough Proto Dragons in the first few rounds to complete their mission, and the Proto Dragons in the later rounds would only be stronger, so there was no need for them to continue participating. Furthermore, they had suffered a great blow this time, and he needed to adjust.
Lan Xuanyu turned on his communication device and dialed Lan Mengqin’s number. “Mengqin, where are you?”
Lan Mengqin: “I’m nearby. How is it? Are you done coaxing her?”
“Something like that. Cough, cough, can you come back for a while? Treat me,” Lan Xuanyu said awkwardly.
“Pfft.” Lan Mengqin’s unkind laughter came from the other side. She obviously knew what Lan Xuanyu wanted her to treat.
Not long after, Lan Mengqin walked back slowly and looked at the dark circles around Lan Xuanyu’s big, beautiful eyes. She couldn’t help but say, “Aiyaya, where did this rare soul beast come from? Did you merge with a panda soul beast? It’s quite pretty, I think I shouldn’t treat it.”
Lan Xuanyu smiled bitterly. “Can you have some sympathy?”
“No.” Lan Mengqin scoffed. “You deserve it. If it were me, I would definitely beat you up.”
Lan Xuanyu smiled bitterly. “I already know that I was wrong. I will reflect on myself later on. Quickly treat me so that I can go and thank that general. He saved me. I can’t go like this.”
Lan Mengqin then raised her hand and a faint green halo condensed and enveloped Lan Xuanyu. A gentle life energy was injected into him and within a short period of time, the black eye circles disappeared.
In fact, with Lan Xuanyu’s self-recovery ability, even if he didn’t treat her, the dark eye circles would disappear before long. But it was better to quickly get rid of it !
“I’m leaving.” Lan Xuanyu thanked Lan Mengqin and left quickly. Their mission here was completed and they only needed to wait for the next spacecraft to return to the Mother Planet to submit their achievement. There were still a few things to do, and the first thing they had to do was to thank the general who saved him. He still didn’t know Lei Junze’s identity.
When he walked out of the resting area, Lan Xuanyu realized that when he met those soldiers who were resting, the way they looked at him was different from before. There were people whispering and pointing at him from time to time. When he looked over, the soldiers would either smile kindly at him or give him a thumbs up.
For his team, he had made a mistake. But for the Dragon Source Planet base, he was already a hero.
His miraculous piloting of a space fighter and the magnificent feat of killing a rank 8 Proto Dragon with his own strength had earned him the deep approval of the military. Furthermore, the Shrek Academy team had displayed their overall strength on the battlefield and reduced the pressure on the military, which would undoubtedly reduce the number of casualties. The degree of recognition from the soldiers naturally increased.
