The Galaxy Vein was the size of a goose egg in the shape of a diamond, but more crystalline than one. Its surface was densely covered in dots of light. On a closer look, it was as shiny and elegant as a galaxy.
It was the Galaxy Vein that many Magicians had dreamt of, the thing that every Magician needed when they reached the bottleneck due to the barrier around their Nebula. It was an important resource to help Magicians expand their Nebula into a Galaxy!
The difference between a Nebula and Galaxy was incredibly huge. It was extremely difficult for a Magician to break through the barrier by themselves. However, the abundant supply of energy from a Galaxy Vein could produce a strong pulse of energy, helping them break through the barrier!
Expanding a Nebula into a Galaxy was the symbol of achieving the Advanced Level. The energy provided by a Galaxy was incomparable to that provided by a little Nebula.
That being said, a Galaxy Vein did not have a hundred percent success rate. Only those with solid foundations, and who had reached the limit of the Intermediate Level, had a chance to break through.
The Galaxy Vein was basically the only option for an Intermediate Magician to rank up to the Advanced Level. Even though there were people who managed to rank up on their own, the odds were extremely low. There was hardly anyone would be able to do so among tens of thousands of Intermediate Magicians.
Mu Ningxue desperately needed a Galaxy Vein. The others on the team had been busy lately. It was obvious that they had received the Galaxy Veins provided by the factions supporting them, and were spending their time trying to rank up to the Advanced Level!
In no time, everyone on the team would be Advanced Magicians. This was the true talent of the national team!
Everyone on the team had basically reached their limit in the Intermediate Level. They only needed Galaxy Veins to rank up to the Advanced Level. However, to further increase the success rate, they would only proceed with their attempts prior to the day when someone was going to be disqualified from the team.
That day was now approaching, so they could not afford to wait any further.
“When did you buy it?” Mu Ningxue stared at the glowing object on Mo Fan’s hand. She would be lying to herself if she said she was not touched by Mo Fan’s action.
The feeling was like a man had placed a giant diamond ring right in front of her when she needed it the most.
Even the formidable family bound to her by blood had abandoned her when she was in need of a Galaxy Vein, but this man was willing to give one to her just like that… Mu Ningxue did not expect him to be the one that would know what she actually wanted.
“The night you slept in my room, I was having trouble falling asleep in your room, so I went to the city,” said Mo Fan.
If Mo Fan could pause time temporarily, his pounding heart simply had the urge to take out his phone and asked the intelligent people on the Internet whether he should take hold of the chance and fall down on his knee. Waiting for suggestions online, it’s extremely urgent!
Unfortunately, there was no way he would act so retardedly. He looked at Mu Ningxue, hoping that she would understand he had never given up on having her as his wife. Since eloping was not an option, he had decided to marry her legally instead. It did not matter if she was the same little princess who enjoyed taking care of flowers and plants, and loved little cats and rabbits, or an icy goddess who was passionate at pursuing higher levels of Magic and freezing the world…
Mo Fan wanted to thank the Mu Family. Without their cruelty, he would not have such a great chance. He wanted to thank the Scarlet Rending Demon. Without its Commander-level Soul Essence, the man who spent all his savings on raising his daughter would never be able to afford a Galaxy Vein. He wanted to thank his country, too. The national team had such a great disqualifying system, forcing Mu Ningxue into a corner that he could take advantage of. Mo Fan initially thought he was still a long way away from fulfilling his dream, yet the cruelty of the world had placed him within reach of his ambition!
“I’ve made up my mind, but Mo Fan, thank you so much,” Mu Ningxue’s eyes were glittering.
She was relieved, relieved that someone was still being so sincere to her, but she had no intention of taking Mo Fan’s Galaxy Vein.
As she mentioned, Mo Fan had six Elements in total. He needed a lot more resources than everyone else. There was no such thing as enough resources for him. It would definitely make him stronger. The truth was, Mo Fan was already surprisingly strong, but Mu Ningxue knew he still had lots of room for improvement…
“Don’t be like that; the chance of being on the national team is extremely precious! If you aren’t thinking of giving up, you should at least rank up to the Advanced Level first. You don’t have to be so modest with me. You’ll realize how meaningless it was when you remember it in the future. What I have is all yours,” blurted out Mo Fan.
Saying this, Mo Fan could feel his heart pounding heavily, as if he was back in the Ancient Capital surrounded by endless undead, facing the Mountain Zombie…
Somehow, it was not really what Mo Fan was trying to say, but now that he had said it, he was hoping that Mu Ningxue would understand his feelings and accept the Galaxy Vein.
Mo Fan actually wished that it was the spring blossom season. The spiring blossoms drifting in the wind under the spring blossom trees would definitely liven the mood further, unlike the spacious, deserted park with dried trees. The only thing that suited the scene was the water fountain with sculptures of some northern Europe mythologies behind them.
The water was flowing, but for some reason, it had started to freeze.
As soon as it turned into ice, it melted again after a heat wave swept by it.
Mo Fan was never this serious in his whole life. He was nervous like a kid in high school handing a love letter to his crush.
“I didn’t really mean that, how about this; you can take the Galaxy Vein first. Just assume that you’re borrowing it. You can pay me back later. Either way, just stay on the team for now. We’ll worry about other things later,” Mo Fan had no idea what Mu Ningxue was thinking. He suddenly felt like Mu Ningxue would think he was using the Galaxy Vein to kidnap her heart. That would be a no-no. Therefore, he quickly explained it before Mu Ningxue could speak.
Mu Ningxue looked at Mo Fan. Somehow, he was not giving her any chance to say anything.
Mu Ningxue quickly interrupted when she saw Mo Fan trying to say something again.
“Err, I’ll keep quiet, go on… either way, (sigh), whatever you say,” Mo Fan finished awkwardly.
It was rare for Mu Ningxue to see the thick-skinned Mo Fan acting so nervously. The truth was, she was panicking a little too.
“I have my own plan, I’m serious. Even if you’re only lending me the Galaxy Vein, I won’t take it, either. You have to understand that the national team isn’t just a competition between the members on the team, but a competition between the factions, financial groups, and families supporting the members too. If a Galaxy Vein can bring me to Venice, I won’t hesitate to take it, but it’s nowhere enough. There’s still a long journey ahead, and I’m going to need more resources. I’m still going to be disqualified regardless, and lending me the Galaxy Vein is only going to slow down your own progress. The others will soon rank up to the Advanced Level, and all their Elements will reach the Advanced Level, too. You will soon lose your advantages,” Mu Ningxue tried to explain calmly.
