304 The Award Ceremony
However, the cuts ignored defense and could also cause significant damage to the Pit Spiders.
Under such circumstances, it would not take long for the Pit Spider to die on the spot.
Zhou Peng also dealt with the little spiders and wrapped things up neatly.
On the other side, Lone Wolf’s injuries had healed quite a bit, and his condition had also improved a little.
Nevertheless, it would take at least a day to recover from the loss of spirit power, so the two of them were still unable to join the battle.
Bald Eagle’s condition was much better, and his face was full of joy after surviving the disaster.
At the same time, this battle had also taught the two of them a lesson, helping them mature more.
About seven or eight minutes later, the two of them stood up. The plains were covered with the corpses of the small spiders. The last female spider was also covered in wounds and not far from death’s door.
Not long after, Zhou Peng found an opportunity to attack it. He circulated the spirit energy in his body and easily blocked the spider’s flustered attack. Then, he immediately moved forward and adjusted the Spirit Wave Sword’s mode to the heat wave laser. The next moment, he stabbed one of the Pit Spider’s eyes.
The enormous Pit Spider did not even have time to screech before half of its head evaporated in an instant. Most of its body had apparently shrunk as well, leaving behind only a small pile of skin, flesh, and bones.
After the battle was over, Zhou Peng immediately handed the Pit Spider’s remaining corpse to Bald Eagle. At the same time, he supported Lone Wolf and rushed back to Lushui County.
Although Lone Wolf had taken medicine that could heal him quickly, his right leg bone had been injured. Not only could he not exert any strength, but he could not even feel half of his leg.
Despite that, he acted as if there was nothing unusual in front of Zhou Peng and Bald Eagle. Instead, he walked forward with a blank expression.
Even if he had to go back to the way he was before, he would not hesitate to continue fighting!
However, Bald Eagle did not think so. He looked at Lone Wolf’s right leg, which was suspended in the air, and his heart sank to the extreme.
If he had been a little stronger, or if he had seen through the Gray Howler’s tricks earlier, things would definitely not have developed so badly!
Now that Lone Wolf’s right leg was injured again, he would probably not be able to fight on another battlefield in the future!
Although the matter of the beasts attacking the city had been dealt with, the sacrifices of those who were like family to him were things he could not bear.
About ten minutes later, Zhou Peng arranged for Lone Wolf and Bald Eagle to stay in the best hospital in Lushui County.
Meanwhile, the rest of the City Defense Army soldiers who were not injured were arranged to clean up the battlefield.
They reported the situation to the leaders and appeased the people. Repairs on the city wall were also progressing steadily.
After a series of things were done, the crisis in Lushui County was finally resolved.
Three days passed in a flash.
Today was the day that the Military Department presented Wu Mo with several medals and awards.
The last time Lieutenant General Lu visited the Fifth Research Department, he had merely wanted to extend his condolences and form a closer relationship with Wu Mo. Although Wu Mo was awarded the rank of major and a medal, the specific Military Merit Award and Research Pioneer Award had not yet been determined.
It was not until today, three days later, that the military sent people to the Fifth Research Department again.
Generally speaking, the award ceremony for second-class merit should be made public to encourage other researchers and boost the winner’s reputation.
However, at Wu Mo’s request, the award ceremony was only held on the top floor of the research building.
Only others who were also responsible for mass-production research technology were there. Not only was the ceremony low-key, but it also did not take up much time off their work.

Therefore, Wu Mo’s Second-class Merit Award Ceremony was held on the top floor of the research building. The audience only consisted of the researchers on the top floor, Academician Xu, Professor Tan, and several other senior executives.
The reward for the second-class merit was extremely generous. There were rare forging materials and the personal notes of two peak six-star masters. It was a huge fortune.
In addition, there was a cash reward of ¥800,000 and a gold medal of merit!
Medals and certificates were only given to the most outstanding soldiers in the military.
Second-class merit required a lot of effort.
Therefore, when the crowd saw the sergeant hand Wu Mo the gold medal, many of them were excited.
A medal and rank represented supreme glory, and many soldiers would spend half of their lives wishing for a medal.
Yet, how many cultivators who had entered the military and fought for more than 10 years could receive the title of outstanding soldier? It was hard to even get third-class merit, much less this gold medal.
The crowd looked at Wu Mo with envy. This was their first time watching an award ceremony up close. Their blood was boiling, and they were determined to work hard and make a name for themselves.
“Thank you, Sir, for attending the Fifth Research Department’s award ceremony. I will continue to work hard.”
Wu Mo bowed slightly and spoke in a humble tone.
The officer who presented the award was in his 40s. He was an early-stage six-star cultivator. He had a strong body, sharp facial features, and deep eyes. However, there was a two-inch-long scar across his cheekbone that destroyed his heroic aura and made him look a little fierce.
Despite that, this officer had a very gentle personality, and he looked at Wu Mo with a smile.
“It’s my honor to present an award to a pillar of the country like you. Wu Mo, you don’t have to be so formal.”
Several of them exchanged greetings for a moment, and after a while, the officer was ready to leave.
Academician Xu and Professor Tan went to see him off, leaving only Wu Mo and a group of young researchers on the top floor of the building.
Wu Mo lowered his head and looked at the gold medal in his palm that felt slightly cold. The national flag of the Nine Provinces kingdom had been drawn on it, and there were symbols representing fortitude and courage.
The medal’s carving was extremely fine, and its surface emitted a faint golden light that was extremely dazzling.
With a light snap of his fingers, Wu Mo immediately kept all the rewards and medals presented by his senior officer in his Interspatial Ring.
At this moment, the rest of the researchers gathered around him.
“Congratulations, Wu Mo. You’re really strong to actually get second-class merit.
“Didn’t they say that it’s very difficult to increase military merits and medals? Why is it that when it comes to Wu Mo, it’s like drinking water?”
“Why don’t you take a look at what kind of person Wu Mo is? He’s the one who developed the Invisibility Armor and the Spirit Wave Sword.”
“Yeah, I don’t think anyone can be as strong as Wu Mo.”
Everyone was talking at once. Their faces were full of envy as they congratulated him.

Wu Mo felt embarrassed when he heard their compliments.
“I’m quite lucky to have found a research path that suits me. You don’t have to envy me. As long as you work hard and don’t give up, you’ll be able to reach my level, or even higher, one day.”
Hearing Wu Mo’s words, everyone nodded in agreement.
“Alright, let’s not disturb Wu Mo’s work anymore. Let’s get back to work.”
Everyone left with light footsteps and returned to their posts to continue their research.
