When Luo XiaoLou opened his eyes the next day, he saw that Yuan Xi had already left. Luo XiaoLou crawled up and grunted at the sharp pain on his shoulder. 125 jogged over to him and said uneasily, “Yuan Xi has been gone for more than an hour. We should go to the hospital right away.”
Luo XiaoLou cautiously touched his shoulder. It didn’t feel like it, but it hurt when he touched it. He stared at the door for two seconds, shook his head, and said, “Not today.”
125 cocked its tail and hooked Luo XiaoLou’s arm, asking anxiously, “Aren’t you hurt? The medical advice given by the doctor at the mecha conference was also for you to go to the hospital immediately. You can’t do that, but I was entrusted by your mother to take care of you.”
Luo XiaoLou stroked 125’s big head and smiled, “I think you’re asking a lot more of me than you are of yourself.”
The look in those people’s eyes yesterday, one could tell something was wrong. Today, there would most likely be people watching him, and even if he went to the hospital, he couldn’t go so righteously.
Luo XiaoLou said, “I’ll think of a way to go to the hospital tomorrow. How about you? Weren’t you also injured?”
125 shifted from its left foot to its right foot, and responded while fidgeting, “Originally I’m such a good mecha, I wouldn’t have been injured. It’s only that, I saw how tense Yuan Xi’s heart was and so the energy defense distribution became a bit unbalanced, that’s why there I receieved some damage at that time. But since the range was small, I’ve repaired it myself.”
Nervous?! Honestly, as an A.I., your mental capacity is really weak!
Luo XiaoLou was no longer worried about 125, nor did he intend to go out, so he called room service and stayed on the sofa to watch today’s match. Today’s match was between the Top 93 and the Top 46. All these Top 100 players were the best players from different planets, making the match more exciting and intense than ever.
Luo XiaoLou switched to Yuan Xi’s match as usual, and when he saw him drive the black mecha, he couldn’t help but stare at it in amazement, “A mecha change in such an important match?
Moreover, whether it was an illusion or not, the already powerful Yuan Xi came into the match with a distinctly ferocious aura. As a result, almost every match didn’t drag on for too long, and the opponent was heavily damaged.
By the end of the match, Luo XiaoLou really felt that watching Yuan Xi was a test of his heart, so he simply switched the channel to watch someone else’s video to feel less guilty.
The kid Yuan Nuo was still there, as were Yates and Mu Chen. Yuan Nuo’s fighting style was a little bit similar to that of Yuan Xi, so he probably learned a lot from his cousin. The first time he saw it, he was so impressed with it.
Mu Chen didn’t look very brilliant, and when compared to other experts, it was hard to find any obvious advantages. Even if Luo XiaoLou looked at his past results, Mu Chen mostly advanced after winning two matches, and rarely won three matches in a row. But in today’s match, Mu Chen tragically met Luo ShaoTian and the baby-faced teenager. Luo XiaoLou’s spirits were lifted by the sight of the baby face that gnawed at him.
Mu Chen simply lost to Luo ShaoTian in his last match, and now he was up against the baby-faced boy. If he lost this time, he would have to withdraw from the competition.
In Luo XiaoLou’s eyes, there was no way for Mu Chen to win. Luo XiaoLou had seen the baby-faced teenager in the later games, and although that teenager had very bad tactics and seemed to be tripping up his opponent all the time, he was still definitely an expert.
Therefore, when Mu Chen won, Luo XiaoLou was just as stunned as those spectators present. Even Baby Face was unable to react to the fact that he had lost.
Actually, Baby Face’s strength should have been higher than Mu Chen’s, but Mu Chen had just recognized all his traps without moving a muscle. Moreover, from the very beginning of the battle, Mu Chen had created an illusion of speed for Baby Face. From the beginning to the last second before the end, Mu Chen’s speed was definitely not fast enough to speak of, even in a critical situation.
Until Baby Face struck again, there seemed to be no chance of escape for Mu Chen’s mecha.
The outcome seemed to be a foregone conclusion, and then, in that instant, Mu Chen’s speed increased dramatically and he returned to end the battle with the Particle Cannon.
The baby-faced teenager was in the wrong. He didn’t lose in strength, but in confidence, and in terms of battle strategy, the silent Mu Chen was clearly superior.
Luo XiaoLou couldn’t help but be happy for Mu Chen and gloat at the same time, the baby-faced teenager must be so depressed that he wanted to vomit blood!
By this time, most of the venues were almost finished, and today it was the Top 93 to the Top 46. Tomorrow, forty-six contestants would compete for the Top Ten, and it would be divided into morning and afternoon sessions. The day-after tomorrow would be when the ranking for the tournament’s top ten finalists would be determined.
As expected, when Yuan Xi came back, his face was still cold and his attitude was so different that Luo XiaoLou felt guilty and didn’t dare to ask. Su Lan and Yue Shang didn’t show up for dinner. Yue Shang’s injury was said to be very serious and would take a day and a night to recover, but Yue Shang insisted on participating in the competition today, and would have to go to the hospital for treatment in the evening.
After dinner, Yuan Xi coldly chased away Yuan Nuo, who gave Luo XiaoLou a look of self-consciousness as he left. Luo XiaoLou was truly uneasy, for he had left no stone unturned.
What did he really know? Luo XiaoLou didn’t dare say anything as he watched Yuan Xi return to sit on the couch with a murderous aura, after putting on the bath water in the bathroom.
The only thing that reassured him was that Yuan Xi had never really hurt him before, even if he was angry.
That night, Yuan Xi didn’t pay any attention to him or touch him, and even when he slept, Yuan Xi let Luo XiaoLou curl up on the edge of the big bed by himself.
During the night, Luo XiaoLou only felt like the room had gotten colder and colder.
The next day, when Luo XiaoLou woke up, it was almost noon. What was even more tragic was that he discovered he had a fever. It was probably due to the mental stress in addition to last night’s natural air conditioner. Moreover, when Luo XiaoLou touched his left shoulder, he felt a sharp pain and wondered if it was inflamed.
Today was the battle between the Top 46 to Top 10, which would take longer than usual, so Yuan Xi probably wouldn’t be back too early. Should I hold out for two more days, or should I go to the hospital today?
“What’s going on now?” Luo XiaoLou turned around and asked 125 who was watching the matches intently next to him.
125 said, “Basically everything is normal, but Yuan Xi lost a match and Cloudy Sky can’t be used.”
Luo XiaoLou was taken aback. He doubted whether he had heard correctly, “What did you say, Yuan Xi lost? And is he hurt?”
From the start of the tournament until now, Yuan Xi was the only mecha warrior who had never lost, and he was already an undefeated myth in this tournament. Moreover, Yuan Xi had a Tier 8 mecha, and his level was extremely high, who could beat him?
125 said gently, “Minor injuries, he himself said that he was fine. I can’t see anything else, but I think he’s just too frightening lately, I can’t show my face in front of him.”
Luo XiaoLou, still in shock and disbelief, asked, “Who was he up against? Quick, let me see the replay.”
125 displayed the match where Yuan Xi was injured on the electronic screen.
Yuan Xi and another person walked into the arena one after the other. Yuan Xi was dressed in a black leisure suit, while the person standing next to Yuan Xi was dressed in a military uniform.
Upon closer inspection, that person was clearly the young officer Luo XiaoLou had met on the first day. It wasn’t that there were no students at the university level who could become officers, there were just very few; and looking at the stars on the officer’s shoulders, his rank wasn’t low.
There was no shortage of spectators in the mecha competition who liked to see handsome men, so as soon as the two men appeared on stage, some spectators began to cheer excitedly.
When the two of them were about to launch their mecha, Luo XiaoLou took a few glances at the officer’s golden mecha, then focused all his attention on Cloudy Sky. In Luo XiaoLou’s eyes, no one could compare with Yuan Xi.
He didn’t dare to look at Yuan Xi for the past two days, so he took this opportunity to take a few more looks righteously.
Both of them were very fast, leaving only two shadows in the arena, one white and one gold, making the surrounding spectators scream.
Luo XiaoLou watched for a moment and frowned in confusion. Yuan Xi clearly wasn’t weaker than the officer and even had a slight edge over him.
Once again, Yuan Xi silently stuck close to the golden mecha and swung his sword. The golden mecha was extremely quick to dodge Cloudy Sky’s attack, its movement beautiful but a bit forced, and its right arm had difficulty exiting the range of Cloudy Sky’s sword attack.
Right at this moment, when the golden mecha seemed like it was about to give up its entire mecha arm, it suddenly flexed its arm and hit Cloudy Sky hard.
Luo XiaoLou’s eyes widened, and the screen also gave a close up shot of the collision. The golden mecha’s elbow area suddenly popped out a dagger and then plunged it in the moment it hit Cloudy Sky.
Manager Gao had commissioned him to make this Grade 8 part!
In that instant, Luo XiaoLou’s heart swelled with shock, pain, and a slight feeling of regret. He jumped out of bed, ignoring the heat on his body, and walked barefoot towards the electronic screen.
Yuan Xi came out of the mecha with some blood on his clothes and a paramedic had even rushed over, but Yuan Xi wasn’t cooperating and he headed straight for the resting room.
When one of the nurses grabbed Yuan Xi’s shirt, Yuan Xi irritably told her to let go, but the nurse wouldn’t. Yuan Xi simply took off his shirt and threw it at the nurse, then went into the break room without looking back.
The paramedics were stunned, while the audience screamed with enthusiasm, seeing this as a true mecha warrior.
The nurse holding Yuan Xi’s shirt blushed. Yuan Xi’s body was too good to be true, lean and strong with broad shoulders, a narrow waist, plus exuberantly handsome features and sweaty, messy black hair.
The first thing Luo XiaoLou noticed were the wounds on Yuan Xi’s body. There were only a few scratches on his arms and back, which really weren’t too serious, but still needed to be bandaged.
Then Luo XiaoLou became aware of the indulgent gazes around Yuan Xi, and his fingers clenched tightly. Aside from his personality, he’d hardly ever met anyone more perfect than Yuan Xi. But his perfection was always overshadowed by arrogance and dominance, so no matter how much people admired him, only few dared to approach Yuan Xi, which had always been Luo XiaoLou’s secret blessing.
Now, Luo XiaoLou was depressed to find that his possessiveness seemed to be growing, and he didn’t want anyone to look at Yuan Xi with that kind of eyes.
Luo XiaoLou covered his face. He was actually dwelling on such things when Yuan Xi was hurt!
He didn’t want to see that again, it was too hard to see Yuan Xi hurt for even a second.
There wasn’t much he could do to help Yuan Xi, but he could still help him fix Cloudy Sky. Wait, Luo XiaoLou’s heart suddenly shuddered. If Cloudy Sky was damaged, could he help Yuan Xi strengthen the mecha twice?
Luo XiaoLou’s mood suddenly relaxed. However, due to his current physical condition, Luo XiaoLou quickly walked back to the bed, put on his clothes and said to 125 as he walked to the bathroom, “We’ll go out later. You help me find a hospital that’s not too close or too far away, better find out the route.”
“You should have gone there a long time ago. I don’t know why you’re dragging it out… with that serious injury.” 125 said as he connected to Planet Kami’s virtual network.
When Luo XiaoLou came out of the bathroom, he ate something from the table and opened the door to go outside. Almost as soon as he was outside, the door from across him opened, and Su Lan looked warily at him.
She quickly blocked Luo XiaoLou, questioning him in an unkind tone, “Where are you going?”
Luo XiaoLou looked at Su Lan twice in surprise and asked, “What are you doing? I don’t think Yuan Xi asked you to look after me.”
Su Lan hesitated for two seconds and said in a hateful whisper, “Don’t think we don’t know what you did… you’re guilty of trying to escape right?”
Luo XiaoLou frowned, “What I did? There’s no need for me to report to you, get out of my way.”
Su Lan already hated him, but at a time like this, Luo XiaoLou didn’t want to waste any more time here.
Su Lan still wanted to stop him, but Luo XiaoLou casually pushed her aside and walked out. No matter what, he had been exercising his stamina for this tournament. Against Su Lan, there was absolutely no problem.
Su Lan was so angry that her face turned red. She was usually with Yuan Xi and Yue Shang, so it was impossible for anyone to treat her disrespectfully, and because of her looks as well, men around her would only spoil her.
Su Lan gritted her teeth. How could she get Luo XiaoLou arrested?
After Luo XiaoLou went downstairs, he went towards an extremely ordinary hover car that was parked on the side of the road. Luo XiaoLou got into the hover car, told the robot in front of him the address, and the car quickly left the Mecha Association Hall.
Halfway there, Luo XiaoLou even made the car circle a few times so that no one would follow him.
By 4:30 p.m., Luo XiaoLou had been lying on his hospital bed for more than three hours. He once again looked anxiously at the doctor, who said with a straight face, “The other injuries are nothing, but the one on your shoulder is very serious. You should’ve come over immediately. If you were late by another two days, there is a good chance that it would have caused permanent consequences, unless you planned to get a new arm in the first place.”
“I’ll come to the hospital in time next time, but I’m in a real hurry right now. What do you think is the approximate time I can leave?” The high fever on Luo XiaoLou’s body had subsided, but sweat still kept dripping down his face.
After another twenty minutes, the doctor finally said, “Okay, although you’re young and have a good bottom, if this happens again—”
“I will seek medical attention promptly.” Luo XiaoLou pressed his shoulder, which was completely pain free, transferred the treatment fee from the communicator, and hurried out the door.
Hopping into the hover car, Luo XiaoLou made it back to the clubhouse. Luo XiaoLou peeked inside and saw Yuan Xi sitting on the couch, holding a glass of wine and drinking slowly.
Rod took a deep look at Luo XiaoLou and passed him to go inside.
Luo XiaoLou entered the door with a hard scalp, controlling his feet that wanted to move towards the back room, and moved towards the couch instead.
Yuan Xi obviously wasn’t going to pay any attention to him yet, so Luo XiaoLou decided to hand out the olive branch himself and say a few nice words first.
Sitting down on the other side of the couch and organizing his language, Luo XiaoLou said, “That, I watched today’s match, and it’s a shame to see that Cloudy Sky faced a problem.”
Yuan Xi looked at Luo XiaoLou coldly. He swirled the wine in his glass and didn’t open his mouth at all.
How long does this guy want to do this?! He was so solicitous, but he didn’t even answer the sentence.
Luo XiaoLou could only continue, “That, I can help you.”
“No, the damage is too great, I’ve already found someone else to fix it.” Yuan Xi said coldly.
“Huh?” Luo XiaoLou gawked at Yuan Xi.
