When Luo XiaoLou saw Master Maku again, Master Maku handed him the design and a thick stack of stuff, and then said solemnly, “As a mecha maker, if I hadn’t seen such a design in my lifetime, I probably would have kept fumbling around with the original idea for the sake of the Grey Galaxy, or tired to create a higher combat mecha in these lower grade planets. But seeing it made me realize how shallow I am, and if I missed it, I can say I would have been sorry for the rest of my life. Young man, with this drawing, you no longer owe me anything. I’ll have to tell you in return that I’m grateful to you.”
Luo XiaoLou smiled, “You are too kind, I also got this design by accident, and the contract is signed so I will not go back on my word. Also, I would like to thank Master Maku, at least you opened this door for me.”
Master Maku’s eyes lit up, “Little Brother Luo, I thank you on behalf of the Grey Galaxy. With your help, high level mecha and bio-genetic fusion technology, Grey Galaxy will have its own battle force no less than an advanced planet in the future, never to be threatened by those beasts and zerg again.”
When Luo XiaoLou heard this, his heart suddenly moved and he said, “Master Muka, perhaps I shouldn’t ask this, but after all, Grey Galaxy is Arthur’s base, will he ever —”
Master Muka smiled slightly, “There aren’t many people I admire, but Arthur is definitely one of them. If he wasn’t in Grey Galaxy, he wouldn’t be inferior to those senior generals, in any way.”
Luo XiaoLou knowingly didn’t say anything else, instead Master Muka said with great regret, “It’s a pity you’re leaving tomorrow, otherwise I would definitely let you experiment with a mecha. But the mecha parts you experimented with the day before yesterday were considered a success, keep up the good work and you’ll soon be stronger than me.”
Luo XiaoLou said evenly, “Master Muka praised me again, but I can’t even do what you can.”
Master Maku didn’t nag any more, just pointed at the thick pile of information and said, “I’ve been studying it for two days, and I have to say that the knowledge and content contained in that design is so strong that I simply can’t imagine what kind of a stunning master its author is. It’s a pity that I couldn’t meet the master and consult him personally. Besides, I’ve written out my understanding about this design drawing over the past two days, so it might be easier for you to grasp when you look at it again.”
Luo XiaoLou was overjoyed and thanked him repeatedly, Master Maku having specialized in this field and the parsed manuscript would definitely help him even more. With this as a foundation, the rest of the bio-mecha design drawings would one day be studied and understood by him. By then, he would definitely be able to create the most powerful mecha.
Luo XiaoLou’s eyes narrowed as he thought of this.
Master Maku discussed with Luo XiaoLou again about how they would maintain contact and the way to hand over the mecha and materials in the future before he got up with satisfaction.
Before leaving the house, Master Muka turned back and said with a smile, “Actually, when I came over, there was another person who also came to see you, so you might as well just ask him the question you were just worried about.”
Then under Luo XiaoLou’s puzzled gaze, a tall figure entered the doorway.
Arthur? Luo XiaoLou choked. He had just suspected someone else was standing right outside the door. Even though the house was now soundproof, Luo XiaoLou still felt embarrassed.
Arthur stared at Luo XiaoLou when he came in, but it was not easy for him to send back his goodwill to someone he had saved. Since Luo XiaoLou had nowhere else to go, he originally planned to just raise Luo XiaoLou himself, just like Ivan, and do whatever he could.
As a result, Luo XiaoLou surprised him first, and then gave him a scare within two days.
Arthur’s face darkened a bit at the thought of it.
“That, how’s Ivan’s learning these two days?” Luo XiaoLou asked first.
Arthur’s face was still ugly, and he coldly said, “It’s better than before, but he definitely won’t be able to make a Grade 3 energy box for a while.” After hesitating for a moment, he couldn’t help but say, “Since you’ll be providing mecha to Master Maku, can you give it to him by the way? Some Grade 3 energy boxes?” Although he would periodically go and acquire them, energy boxes were never too much for something like that. Moreover, for those people from the advanced planets, energy boxes sold to them always had their prices increased by several times.
Luo XiaoLou thought about it and said, “Actually, Master Maku is one of your people, right? I can provide you with a certain number of energy boxes until Ivan can make his own Level 3 energy boxes. But in addition to the material trade, I have one more condition.”
With a twinkle in his eye, Arthur took a step ahead of Luo XiaoLou and said, “As long as the Federation doesn’t move against us, I will never be an enemy of Yuan Xi.”
Luo XiaoLou smiled, finding the answer quite acceptable.
Arthur took out another box and placed it in front of Luo XiaoLou and said, “These are ten sets of genetic samples that Master Maku said you could use.”
After spending a few days with Ivan and Arthur, Luo XiaoLou had gotten to know Arthur a little better as a person. Although grumpy, he treated him well. Luo XiaoLou thanked him and put it away, and thought about asking for three more energy boxes from 125, all with an energy of around 20,000 Luo.
Arthur was dumbfounded. The one in his hand only went up to 5,000 Luo. He couldn’t help but get angry again. Who the hell was the one who leaked the news that Luo XiaoLou was here?!
At this moment, the door was unceremoniously pushed open and Yuan Xi walked in from outside. He unhappily swept a glance at Arthur, set the lunch box he brought back on the table and greeted Luo XiaoLou, “Come here, eat.” A complete command statement.
Arthur raised an eyebrow and began to consider whether or not he should find a chance to persuade Luo XiaoLou that the man he had chosen for his position of power would only cause for a greater difference in their status to appear. And if such a gap existed, Yuan Xi would not respect Luo XiaoLou.
Who would have thought that Luo XiaoLou, who had just negotiated with him in an orderly manner, would immediately become a different person after Yuan Xi entered the room. With a big smile on his face, he leaned in and even helped Yuan Xi with the soup, in a way that made Arthur want to vomit. He couldn’t be bothered to rebel against Luo XiaoLou’s desire to stay and left early.
The two of them had been in this state ever since Luo XiaoLou had apprehensively wondered if he had done this and that to Yuan Xi.
In response to the recent bizarre situation, 125, who was hiding on the far side of the couch watching TV, looked twice suspiciously and wondered if people in love were idiots, or if its poor fosterer’s IQ had apparently lowered again.
On the third day, three mega-ships came over to the planet, plus five escorting combat crafts. Except for Arthur and Ivan, who knew the identities of Luo XiaoLou and Yuan Xi, everyone in the planet was aghast.
In the huge square, the planet’s army began to maintain law and order, and people who had gotten the news in hindsight looked around, excitedly searching for their prince. This might be the closest moment in their lives to their prince.
Not far away, 125 was busy counting the materials Luo XiaoLou had purchased in bulk. Luo XiaoLou was still saying goodbye to Ivan, and the young boy was looking at Luo XiaoLou with sadness and stubbornness in his eyes, while Bai Heng was saying that he would be welcome back anytime in the future.
Arthur, on the other hand, huffed and said the line, “When Yuan Xi doesn’t want you anymore, I’ll allow you to come to our side.”
“Don’t even think about it.” A cold voice suddenly interjected, and then, Yuan Xi dragged Luo XiaoLou back to the spaceship.
As he was about to board the ship, Yuan Xi suddenly took off the mask on his face, and the people around him who could see his face immediately shrieked. The prince was actually with them!
Just when many young girls were about to faint with happiness, Yuan Xi raised his lips in an evil manner, suddenly reached out, grabbed Luo XiaoLou who was next to him and kissed him, dominating and aggressively.
Luo XiaoLou was shocked and unconsciously pushed out, but it was no use at all. At school, Yuan Xi had hardly ever been too intimate with Luo XiaoLou outside. And when he wanted to, he couldn’t be denied.
The cries of shock grew even louder, and almost immediately, pictures of Prince Yuan Xi kissing his lover spread throughout the Federation, not only in amazement, but also in shock at the Prince’s bizarre preference for someone so ugly…
Luo XiaoLou got into the ship dazed, his face flushed and his expression unnatural. God, although he wasn’t overly conservative, in front of so many people —
Yuan Xi pulled him over and slowly removed the disguise for Luo XiaoLou, humming, “I don’t know what you’re shy about. You’re already mine anyway, and we’ll be having an engagement ceremony soon.” Yuan Xi said as he watched with pleasure as the young slave’s face finally became his again with the disguise removed.
Luo XiaoLou sobered up a little and stammered, “Eng — right away!?”
“How long do you want to drag this out otherwise?!” Yuan Xi narrowed his eyes and leaned dangerously close to him.
“I just think it’s so sudden —” Although Luo XiaoLou accepted Yuan Xi and was willing to work hard, they hadn’t graduated from college yet, and obviously the last time he said they were only going to meet his parents, so when did this escalate into an engagement?
Yuan Xi was silent for two seconds and suddenly interrupted Luo XiaoLou, “You’re the one who took the initiative to say you wanted to get married right away.”
“Me?!” Luo XiaoLou looked wide-eyed and frightened.
Yuan Xi hugged Luo XiaoLou hard and righteously reminded, “That night.”
Luo XiaoLou suddenly remembered, then thought of 125’s words, and immediately got his hands messy and began to speak without thinking, “Mn, that’s fine, let’s get married!”
Yuan Xi held Luo XiaoLou’s body a little stiffly for a moment, coughed and immediately answered, “Mn, I’ll mention it to my father, and we’ll get married straight away.” Thinking of Luo XiaoLou crying on the bed and begging him, calling him husband, Yuan Xi suddenly felt a little hot.
Five days later, their spaceship finally arrived in Tiras, and Luo XiaoLou’s mouth was silent, but his heart began to get nervous.
