*Xe Zhoutian PoV*
The steel doors opened as I walk inside my room. Gazing around for a second, I see Rashu sitting in bed and still trying to absorb as much Qi as possible from the air.
'Back from those 'education lecture' they are talking about?' said Rashu through my head as I walk to the chair in front of the bed and sit in there. After I sit down, I stare into Rashu and replied "No, it's something called interview. And in the end of our conversation, we are reviewing our interview this past week."
'I have noticed, that you are using their words more and more now huh' said Rashu as he snorted to me 'last time they talk about the words for time, like seconds, minutes, and hours. Now this interview thing, what are you guys talking about anyway?'
Silence permeating the room for a while, until I snapped myself and realized Rashu just ask me a question "Oh sorry, I was trying to understand this grades stuff they give me a few minutes ago." Rubbing my glabella, I continue my talk "Well, apparently, our Qi is called as Artlic energy by the intergalactic civilization. And the Artlic energy is something that it's use yet be found by the intergalactic civilization and they deem it as unnecessary energy. But they still placed the Artlic energy in their 'chemistry' column anyway."
Knitting his eyebrows, Rashu say 'Talking about Qi… didn't you noticed? If we are losing all of our divinity, then you must had already been dead. You are three hundred years old. And even though I'm five hundred years old, some spirit beasts can even live for a thousand years.'
Blinking dumbly from Rashu statement, I was stunned for a moment and then say "You are right.. Even though I'm still feeling the hunger and the need of sleep, my appearance still didn't changed to that of old man but still of someone who's in his twenties."
Rashu nodded his head and say 'Exactly, we have lost part of our divinity, but we have yet to be fully mortals.. If I have to guess. Our divinity is still there but weakened by a large margin ever since we had left our planet. But we are still never aging.'
Silent in contemplation, I infuse my Qi to the storage ring and take out a jade as big as fist. The jade is colored in grey and dim. Even though it should have been green in colour and glowing vibrantly.
Rashu look at what I just taken out from the storage ring and said 'A soul jade? Are you still worried about them?'
Nodding for confirmation, I said "The heavenly guidance priestess had already stated her stance in our war with the World Eater. She is one of those who received the prophecies and already had known we would lost even if we try to fight back. She would prefer to prepare herself and all her followers for the ending of the world by making big rituals altar and pray for the gods in heavens to guide their souls in that certain doom."
Shaking my head, I make a wry smile and continue "She prefer to be neutral and don't want to do a losing battle. And I couldn't ask for more as I would prefer she and fei-fei staying out from the battlefield too… and who would have thought, someone that doesn't fear death and had come to fight back, just because he want to see how strong is this monster that would end the world, would still be alive now. While the other hand…"
Gritting my teeth and clenching both of my fists, my face become more and more warped in gloom and fury. Listening to my rants all this time, Rashu shake his head and said 'It wasn't your fault. Don't you remember? They said they can only teleport one of the native from their energy. And back then, I can go with you because we have our soul contract and I've affinity to control the space element as well.'
*Tit Tut Tit Tut*
Before I can open my mouth and reply back to Rashu, an alarm sounded in my room as James voice suddenly appeared from every corners of the place "Zhoutian, I had said that we would back to the CGA space station soon, right? Apparently, we have arrived now and would like to board in ten minutes, can you prepare yourself starting from now?"
"Yes, I will." I said to reply James announcement. After that, a clicking sound sounded and James presence is gone at the same time. I directed my gaze to Rashu and say "Looks like we had arrived to our 'new home'. They said we would spend some amount of time in this space station of theirs."
Shaking his head, Rashu say 'Soldiers in service they said? Huh, so nice of them to save us then work us for free later.'
Smiling, I say "At the very least, it won't be boring. Especially since… I've weakened to the Dantian core cultivators. There would be more challenges for me with only using the might of Dantian core realm."
And now, let's see how strong those intergalactic combatants, that mentioned in this ICG list.
