Yuan Xi looked at Luo XiaoLou with a sullen face for a moment, and finally held out his arms for Luo XiaoLou to help him up, putting most of his weight on top of Luo XiaoLou. Because of Yuan Xi’s height, the two of them moved towards the bed with great difficulty.
When he sat down on the bed, Luo XiaoLou brought a large towel to the dripping wet Yuan Xi and told him to dry himself off, then looked at his injuries. A large patch of purple circled around his waist, and the worst injury was a very swollen knee. There were also bruises in other places, but they were much lighter than these two places.
Luo XiaoLou couldn’t help but mutter, “My God, you didn’t even tell me about this serious injury? Don’t move around, I’ll go get the medicine box.”
Yuan Xi stared hard at Luo XiaoLou and said impatiently, “Why are you so nosy? I can handle it myself.”
Luo XiaoLou looked at Yuan Xi’s leg speechlessly. If he could handle it himself, what was he doing soaking like that for half a day just now…
“Just wait here, I’ll be right back.” As he walked out, Luo XiaoLou wondered how on earth this guy had gotten so badly injured. The only time they were apart was when Yuan Xi entered the Ancient Martial Arts Practice Hall… Did Yuan Xi fight someone?
Looking into the medical kit, Luo XiaoLou found the square-shaped device that the robot A1 had used on him last time. This was later bought by Luo XiaoLou himself and the price did not come cheap. Luo XiaoLou hesitated for a long while at that time, but later still mail-ordered it because of its powerful function.
“Well, it really is worth every penny, and such a serious injury actually healed right away.” Luo XiaoLou exclaimed, gently rubbing Yuan Xi’s recovered, as good as new, knee while taking a glance at Yuan Xi. He found that Yuan Xi didn’t show any signs of pain other than his face still looking ugly.
The man who had been silent suddenly roared, “Hey! Will you stop being so perverted? How long are you going to keep touching?!”
Luo XiaoLou was shocked, finally realizing that because of his fingers, Yuan Xi had stiffened all over. He quickly took his hand back. But, but what does this have to do with being perverted?!
Why is this guy so awkward after being injured…
Luo XiaoLou handed the device in his hand to Yuan Xi and pointed to his waist, saying calmly, “Then deal with the rest yourself. It should be easy to use.”
Yuan Xi, however, didn’t take it. He tried to move his leg and after finding that it had healed, his tense body finally relaxed. Yuan Xi looked at Luo XiaoLou for a long moment before turning his head to the side with a low grunt, and saying, with some embarrassment, “I’m not used to having other people around when I’m hurt.”
“Oh.” Luo XiaoLou nodded, but in his heart he was roaring, you’re explaining, ex-plai-ning! Do people mutate after getting hurt?
“Well, in that case, I’ll be going out first. There’s still the bathroom to clean—” Luo XiaoLou jokingly made an excuse to leave. In case Yuan Xi noticed his own current abnormality, he would definitely get annoyed! He might even kill people to silence them.
“Who told you to leave?” Yuan Xi tugged at Luo XiaoLou, who was planning to leave. He pointed at his bruises and said matter-of-factly, “These, and these, need to be taken care of.”
“Aren’t you not used to it?” Luo XiaoLou couldn’t help but remind him, “And you just said you didn’t like me touching you.”
“Oh, now I’m used to it.” Yuan Xi said with great certainty.
Luo XiaoLou had second thoughts of biting him and then smacking himself to death, but he had already brought a lot of trouble on himself!
Yuan Xi completely relaxed and casually laid down on the bed. He softly spoke to Luo XiaoLou, “Come on, treat my wound first, and then give me a massage. It’s so comfortable after fighting with that guy today.”
Luo XiaoLou incredulously looked at the shameless guy, but finally surrendered under Yuan Xi’s innocent and insistent gaze. Besides, it looked like Yuan Xi wasn’t even going to let go until he was done treating him, even though Luo XiaoLou wanted to read his new textbook.
A few minutes later, the device had healed Yuan Xi’s injuries. At least there was absolutely nothing wrong with him on the surface. Yuan Xi frowned and said that there were some injuries that would take a few days to heal completely.
Then Luo XiaoLou began to massage Yuan Xi. He was not sure if it was because of the injury or because he was overworked, but even though Yuan Xi’s body was as relaxed as possible, the muscles under his hands were still stiff.
Luo XiaoLou had learned two-handed massage before, so his technique was good, and Yuan Xi grunted in comfort. Luo XiaoLou couldn’t help but ask, “Who exactly did you fight with?”
Yuan Xi’s half-lidded eyes perked up, visibly excited, “The chairman of the Ancient Martial Arts Practice Hall, well, he’s strong.”
“You lost?” Luo XiaoLou asked casually.
“How is that possible? I’ve never lost before.”
“Then being beaten like that isn’t really much better, is it?”
“Do you want to get your ass kicked?”
Yuan Xi’s skin was pale, with firm muscles underneath, full of strength and beauty, completely different from Luo XiaoLou. Was this the difference between a perfect gene and an inferior one?
Luo XiaoLou’s eyes wandered involuntarily over Yuan Xi’s body, from the slender legs to the fair chest, and then — to Yuan Xi silently looking him in the eyes. There was no sarcasm in it, no thin anger, no command, but more like something gentle and deep that had never been seen before.
For a moment, Luo XiaoLou almost forgot to look away. He thought that the lights were so bright today that he actually had an illusion…
Yuan Xi looked away first, turning over onto the bed and whining quietly, “Hey, can you use some force? Come on up, sit on the bed.”
Half an hour later, Luo XiaoLou finally returned to his bedroom in a dizzy state. He might have actually misjudged if that guy Yuan Xi had actually blushed.
Luo XiaoLou went straight to the virtual internet after he went back to his room. He rushed to attend Teacher Song’s class, and asked for some more advice on the problems he encountered in the Grade 1 parts data he had read a few days ago. Teacher Song was very pleased to see that Luo XiaoLou paid so much attention to the data he had given him.
There were over six hundred types of Grade 1 parts in the data that Teacher Song had compiled, and each part had very detailed information, from processing, to materials, production methods, principles and performance.
When Luo XiaoLou went back that day and opened it, he knew how valuable that information was. Although his dream was to be a mecha warrior, and he had only studied the parts because he wanted to work and survive, at this moment, Luo XiaoLou himself couldn’t tell why but he loved these things, and looking at the data, he could just imagine the parts turning in his fingers.
And, since yesterday’s mecha exam, Luo XiaoLou had a thought hidden in his mind. If he were to say it out loud, he would be laughed at and some people might even say he was crazy, but he didn’t care. He could improve his physical fitness through continuous training, but there was no way to change his genes. But why should only people with higher genes be able to drive a mecha?
Since he didn’t have one, he’d build his own mecha that he could drive!
Therefore, Luo XiaoLou’s enthusiasm for learning was very high, and so far, he had mastered fifty-five Grade 1 parts. But it was only a theoretical grasp, and he couldn’t touch the actual things, making him sad.
Luo XiaoLou sighed. Even if he went to work, he couldn’t really get access to all the parts. The machining branch where he worked was only responsible for dozens of Grade 1 parts and about ten types of Grade 2 parts.
So, how could he get access to all the primary parts? With these questions in mind, Luo XiaoLou slowly drifted off to sleep.
The next day, the electronic alarm clock woke Luo XiaoLou up on time. When Luo XiaoLou had breakfast ready, Yuan Xi’s door opened promptly.
Luo XiaoLou wore the dark green uniform of the Mecha Manufacturing Department, while Yuan Xi wore the dark blue uniform of the school. Yuan Xi looked at Luo XiaoLou for longer than usual and said something in a low voice. Luo Xiaolou didn’t hear clearly. It should not have been something sarcastic, because if it was, Yuan Xi would usually say it very loud.
After breakfast, it was still Yuan Xi who drove to school, and on the way, without looking away, he probably made up his mind to forget about yesterday’s injury and the aftermath. Not to mention Luo XiaoLou, who was eager to forget about his massage.
After arriving at the parking lot, Yuan Xi instructed Luo XiaoLou to meet him at noon in front of the information building located between the Mecha and Mecha Manufacturing Departments, and they went to their respective classes.
The classes at Saint Miro Academy were from Class 1 to Class 10, with Class 2 to Class 9 being the normal classes, Class 1 being mostly for top students, and Class 10 being for students who got in through connections or money. Therefore, at Saint Miro Academy, both classes were equally famous, one was admired and the other was notorious.
Luo XiaoLou’s grades at that time were abysmal, and if Mrs. Luo hadn’t used her connections, he wouldn’t have been able to get into this school. So, as a matter of course, he was assigned to Class 10.
Luo XiaoLou’s seat was located at the front, and he was flanked by a chubby boy who immediately introduced himself, “Hello, classmate, I’m Tian Li, and you can also call me Fatty. Please advise me in the future.”
Luo XiaoLou smiled. Looking at the fat boy’s appearance, it was obvious that he knew him, but boy didn’t look at him in a different way. He felt a little bit better, so he said, “Hello, I’m Luo XiaoLou.”
Like in the Mecha Department, the Mecha Manufacturing Department didn’t have many girls, and Tian Li had a very strong opinion about that. They chatted some more before the students quieted down as a bell on the lecture table made a pleasant ringing sound, and a middle-aged man walked into the classroom.
“Hello, students, I’ll be your homeroom teacher. My name is Carlo. You all know how much our Class 10 means to the whole school, but that doesn’t mean we can give up trying and hoping. Regardless of how you came to this school, however, I want you to go out in an upright manner. We’ve always had the lowest graduation rate, but I hope you guys can break that this session and let others mention our Class 10, and let us also mention our own class with pride. Class 10’s teacher will work with you.”
Teacher Carlo’s words trailed off, and the class erupted in a loud applause.
Carlo smiled slightly and continued, “Now, let me introduce the Mecha Manufacturing Department. As you know, our majors don’t have to worry about getting jobs, and every year some companies and families come here to select new people. Maybe after this mid-term, people will start investing in you so everyone, cheer up. Also, I’d like to specifically mention that our first year freshman who placed first, Yang Ke, has been booked by the famous PDG family, which means that his future experimental research will be fully paid for by the PDG family.” With Carlo’s words, the image of a student appeared on the screen behind him.
Luo XiaoLou’s mouth twitched, Yang Ke was the same good-looking boy he had met yesterday.
Teacher Carlo then praised Yang Ke some more and told everyone to learn from him. Finally, everyone was informed that there would be an orientation party in three days.
Luo XiaoLou looked at his communicator and saw that it was already noon, so he started to pack up his things and prepare to meet up with Yuan Xi.
At that moment, Tian Li, who was beside him, suddenly said, “Hey, I don’t know where anything is, so I’m lucky to be taken care of by a senior.”
Luo XiaoLou looked out as he put his things away, and sure enough, a senior student in a white military school uniform was watching from the door of their class.
“Luo XiaoLou, wait a minute, it will be my treat for lunch today —” before Tian Li had even finished speaking, someone at the door had already shouted, “Luo XiaoLou, there are seniors looking for you! “
Tian Li opened his mouth wide and Luo XiaoLou was also shocked. He said goodbye to Tian Li and walked outside.
The senior boy at the door was dressed in white military uniform, looking handsome and poise. But Luo XiaoLou was extremely sure that he had never seen this person before. Thinking of this, Luo XiaoLou’s heart thudded, it couldn’t be an acquaintance of the body’s former owner, right?
Thinking so, Luo XiaoLou’s smile was a little unnatural.
The senior student smilingly looked Luo XiaoLou over for a few times and said, “You’re Luo XiaoLou, right? I’m passing on a message for someone else, the student president Luo ShaoJun is looking for you.”
The author has something to say:
Cover your face, Yuan Xi you are actually such an awkward seme-kun…
