Rank One was not the peak. Above it were the Lords of Heaven, then the King of Gods.
“If you want to train,” said Zhang Weiyu as he glanced at Lu Shu, “you have to enter the Lord of Heaven’s imperial palace. If not, you might only be able to reach Rank Two as a slave of the aristocrats before you die. What’s the point?”
Lu Shu looked at Zhang Weiyu. Hm? He actually had some foresight!
“But to enter the palace, you have to be castrated, heh heh.” Zhang Weiyu laughed maliciously.
Lu Shu was dumbfounded. “Die1?”
Zhang Weiyu rolled his eyes. “You illiterate. Castrate. The ‘shi’ in ‘shi li’2. It means to neuter.”
Lu Shu was dumbfounded. He recalled that something like this had happened in the past back on Earth. Castrate, neuter, spay…
But could he be accused of being illiterate? Top student Lu Shu could not stand this humiliation. He was silent for two seconds. “I understand. But have you heard of ‘shi ru po zhu’3, ‘ren duo shi zhong’4, ‘qu yan fu shi’5, ‘shi bu liang li’6…”
“From Zhang Weiyu’s distress, +666!”
Zhang Weiyu gasped in shock. He could not look straight at these phrases!
Lu Shu went into a deep thought. It was as if some parts of this world coincided with that on Earth. Why could he access the place where Ming Yueye was being locked up from Earth? Lu Shu was confused by many things.
Just as Lu Shu was deep in thought, there was a sudden sound of horses galloping in the distance. Zhang Weiyu quickly dragged Lu Shu to the field and said softly, “Don’t provoke these slave owners!”
Lu Shu quietly looked at them. The sound came from the town. It was said that the slave owners all lived in the town, while the peasants lived in the countryside. Land was extremely expensive in town. Every business was owned by an aristocrat or slave owner.
Lu Shu looked at Zhang Weiyu. Was this also a place where the generals and ministers of state were considered nobility?
Zhang Weiyu laughed. “In this society, the King of Gods is the highest, followed by the Lords of Heaven, the aristocrats, the slave owners, and the peasants. But the King of Gods is like the greatest slave owner.”
According to Zhang Weiyu, the respective Lords of Heaven possessed the strongest techniques and slaves. The classes were naturally formed according to strength. Those who had Rank Two techniques were aristocrats, while only Lords of Heaven and the King of Gods had Rank One techniques.
This system was hard to overthrow. After all, they were no match for the upper classes.
There were also some geniuses. Some small slave owners had developed Rank Two techniques by themselves. After they were offered amnesty by the Lords of Heaven, they were given new positions. Lu Shu pondered. His techniques, no matter whether it was the Hall of Swords or the celestial map, were very strong. It would not be a problem for him to reach Class A. It was possible for him to aspire for Shen Cang Jing…
He was already invincible after lighting up the fourth level of Nebula. What was beyond this?
Lu Shu suddenly formed a strange confidence that not even the Lords of Heaven possessed.
According to Zhang Weiyu, the aristocrats in this world values knowledge, just like the slave societies of the past. Some could become household tutors. Some cultured slaves were worth an entire ranch.
A group of horses and people galloped over. The horses were tall and muscular. They were like the mutated creatures on Earth.
Everyone in the group had the seal of a knife on the back of their hands. They seemed very fierce and tough. Lu Shu was surprised that a lady was leading the group.
Zhang Weiyu pulled Lu Shu away. “Don’t look at them!”
The lady got off from her horse and turned to look at Lu Shu. She continued walking forward. Lu Shu bent over and continued weeding. The female had brought a halter with her.
Zhang Weiyu bent down even lower. He almost went underground. He just did not want to be noticed.
The lady smiled. “Zhang Weiyu, are you still not willing to sell your land? How long are you going to hold on to it?”
Zhang Weiyu lowered his head and smiled obsequiously. “Maybe a few more years.”
“If you become my slave, you would lead a much better life,” said the lady with a smile.
“I feel that even though I am not a slave, I am living a good life.” Although Zhang Weiyu was smiling obsequiously, he did not give in.
Lu Shu felt that there was something wrong with Zhang Weiyu. Not only could he read, he was still very stubborn even though he was so weak. Were there still civilians who were not afraid of death in times when human life was worthless?
“Very good.” The lady waved the halter in her hands and smiled. “You are very strong, stronger than these slaves!”
Lu Shu was dumbfounded. It was a slap in the face to the slaves by the side. How would your slaves feel?
The lady turned and looked at Lu Shu. “And where are you from?”
Zhang Weiyu quickly said, “He is my distant nephew. I called him over to help me.”
“Oh.” The lady nodded her head. “You are handsome and good-looking. Are you willing to be my slave? I can assure that you will be able to live well if you join me.”
Lu Shu was silent. It did not seem like a bad deal…
But was he really going to be a slave in this world…
Lu Shu said with a sense of justice, “I’ll have to ask my uncle about this. My uncle has the final say in all my important life decisions. After all, I am unable to make good decisions.”
“From Zhang Weiyu’s distress, +299!”
Zhang Weiyu was planning to be an observer, but how did he get involved? The lady’s expression darkened. Zhang Weiyu started to panic. “Dumb child, you should make your own decisions. I can’t say what path is most suitable for you.”
Lu Shu turned and looked at the lady. “My uncle said that he can’t say.”
“From Yu Die’s distress, +666!”
The lady called Yu Die laughed. “Very good. You are very strong.”
She suddenly turned and said to the slaves, “Tell the other slave owners that I have set my mind on him. No one is allowed to take him! The Yu family will give half of our profits to them!”
Lu Shu was speechless.
What a unique lady…
After the group left, Lu Shu looked at Zhang Weiyu with doubt. Zhang Weiyu laughed. “This lady studied in the Lord of Heaven’s palace. I don’t know what she studied about morals. The stronger you are in character, the safer you are. Her father died in a war. Thus, she is the head of the Yu family.”
At night, Lu Shu’s hand shook even as he drank water from a can.
This was the result of relaxing after using his muscles. He had not experienced this for a very long time. He had no strength to even lift very light objects.
Zhang Weiyu looked at Lu Shu and laughed. “You’ve never worked on the fields before, right? Rest well today and work hard for the next few days. I don’t accept idlers here.”
Lu Shu looked at Zhang Weiyu, but did not speak.
