Luo XiaoLou and Yuan Xi returned to Planet Anse the day after the list was finalized, as Saint Miro Academy would be starting in a week, and were watched by His Majesties, the King and Queen, Yuan Nuo and others, and a tearful housekeeper as they left the Imperial Capital.
Luo XiaoLou felt nostalgic when he opened the door to his apartment. He had worried that he would be cut off from his first real estate property during the escape days, as no other place was as nice and secure as his own.
Yuan Xi looked at Luo XiaoLou’s touched face with a baffled look on his face, and then took him to the bathroom, after which they rested directly.
The next day, when Luo XiaoLou woke up to prepare breakfast, Yuan Xi sorted out the gifts they had piled up in the living room and put most of them in Luo XiaoLou’s lab, and some in the study.
After breakfast, Luo XiaoLou went into his study to sort out the gifts he had brought back for everyone. For Tian Li, the latest simulation game and mecha-making easy learning system, for Mu Chen, advanced materials and oddly functional small equipment, for Yates, a mecha warrior training disk, for Shen Yuan, Di Jia and the others he knew at Kanes, ten homemade Energy Boxes, and he even brought Coach Rocky, gifting him a set of nutritional supplements to improve the body’s constitution, and sent these out one by one via express delivery.
After that work, Luo XiaoLou sat comfortably on the sofa, drinking tea.
As for Master Yan’s gift, Luo XiaoLou smiled at the items carefully collected in the storage box, which he would deliver tomorrow.
It might be a surprise for Master Yan, or his master might think he was messing around. But Luo XiaoLou really thought that the huge snake vine that 125 had secretly plucked was a treasure, no less usable than the high-grade materials.
The point was, there were plenty of them in the far lower levels of Planet – though they were far too fierce to collect.
Yuan Xi was using the study’s computer to contact his guards. This year, as Yuan Xi was coming of age and His Majesty, the King prepared his trial, things were starting to get a lot more interesting for Yuan Xi.
When Luo XiaoLou refilled his own glass, he brought a cup for Yuan Xi.
His Majesty, the King, took one look at him and nodded on the other end of the video call.
Luo XiaoLou muttered in his heart, ‘Why is Yuan Xi’s expression so stern? It turned out that most people who were overworked at such a young age have poor health and even their spirits are affected.’
As he set down his cup of tea, Luo XiaoLou’s eyes were drawn to a silver box on the desk, which he hadn’t seen before.
“How rare that you finally found it.” Yuan Xi snapped off the video and said sarcastically, oblivious to the poor guard captain across the room who was waiting for his instructions.
Luo XiaoLou was shocked, was Yuan Xi’s ugly face directed at him? But God on high, he hadn’t messed with him since he got up today!
“That’s good stuff, run up there and say you want it! If Yuan Xi won’t give it to you, you can try pampering or seduction or something. Do you need me to order you erotic lingerie online at….” 125 looked at the door of the study that had been slammed shut in front of him, complained angrily about the fosterer’s crossing of the river, and padded off to his room.
Luo XiaoLou closed the door quickly, a little red in the face despite knowing that Yuan Xi couldn’t hear what 125 had said.
Turning back to Yuan Xi, who was obviously still in a temper, Luo XiaoLou tried to take the box with his hands.
When he opened the box, Luo XiaoLou looked at the beautiful silvery objects. There was even a layer of white smoke floating on the top layer. This was the legendary, unattainable, grade 10 material – Pillar Silver.
What shocked Luo XiaoLou even more was that when he slightly probed using Source of Consciousness power to poke around, he could tell that this box was a spatial storage box, and there were at least three rooms as big inside. A tenth-grade material! Luo XiaoLou tried to swallow his saliva, as he felt his heart beating so fast that it was abnormal.
Trying to find his voice, Luo XiaoLou cried out and jumped on top of Yuan Xi, hugging him hard, his eyes still on the box on the table, and asked begrudgingly, “Yes, it’s for me, isn’t it? It must be! God, I’m so touched, you don’t know how much I love you!”
Luo XiaoLou made up his mind that he’d fight to the death for this material today! Even if it was only half! Ah, maybe it’s a good idea to get 125 to order the lingerie…
Yuan Xi’s body stiffened, then grunted, not pushing Luo XiaoLou away, but not hugging Luo XiaoLou back either, only raising his chin slightly and looking at Luo XiaoLou arrogantly, saying, “This is the prize I got from the mecha competition, and I was going to give it to you. However, after you escaped, I’ve changed my mind-“
“No! No, please don’t. Darling, you know I didn’t want to leave you at all. In fact, the next second I left you I regretted it, and all those days I was thinking about you.” Luo XiaoLou said without blushing, in fact, Luo XiaoLou found it not difficult at all to say those words to Yuan Xi.
Seeing that Yuan Xi was still cold and didn’t say anything, Luo XiaoLou was tickled to death. He took a look at the window and casually pressed the switch, so the thick curtains draped down. The study room was dark at first, then slowly adjusted to have a hazy moonlight effect, where they could only see each other’s blurred silhouettes.
Then Luo XiaoLou had the audacity to sit on Yuan Xi’s lap, put his arms around Yuan Xi’s shoulders, leaned in with a flushed face, and kissed him in the cover of the night. Yuan Xi still didn’t cooperate and just let Luo XiaoLou do his thing. With the light behind him, he couldn’t see the expression on his face, but his two eyes were extremely bright.
Yuan Xi usually took the initiative between the two of them, and even if Luo XiaoLou took the initiative occasionally, Yuan Xi would soon take the initiative. Under the circumstances, Luo XiaoLou began to wonder if Yuan Xi’s rutting period had passed.
Having no other choice, Luo XiaoLou was truculent and decided to lure the cat to the end. He gently sucked on Yuan Xi’s lower lip, and after a few seconds, hesitated as he stuck out his tongue, which was effortlessly allowed to enter, tangling with Yuan Xi’s tongue.
After Luo XiaoLou pulled away, panting, his arms on Yuan Xi’s shoulders went limp, and Yuan Xi’s breath became unsteady. Sitting on Yuan Xi’s lap, Luo XiaoLou could clearly feel the change between Yuan Xi’s legs.
Luo XiaoLou smiled at Yuan Xi, who was still sitting there stoically, and kissed Yuan Xi’s neck, taking a bite of his Adam’s apple.
When Yuan Xi shuddered and muffled a grunt, he hurriedly grabbed Luo XiaoLou’s waist with both hands and pushed him down hard while growling in an unsteady tone, “You little slut, this is what you want, and since you’re so horny, I’ll never let you down…”
The only sounds left in the study were increasingly heavy breathing and some squelching noises, occasionally mixed with tiny moans.
Afterwards, Luo XiaoLou squinted at the ceiling in frustration, feeling ashamed to see others. For the sake of a box of materials, not to mention the daytime prostitution, in the end, he completely forgot the original intention, forgot to take the opportunity to coax Yuan Xi to give him the materials, only to remember-.
After a satisfying shower, Yuan Xi took a look at the disappointed Luo XiaoLou on his bed, smiled, and placed the box of materials on Luo XiaoLou’s bedside table, then went back to his video conference.
Luo XiaoLou looked at the box of Level 10 materials with tangled and delighted eyes. Yuan Xi was not mocking him with this, was he?
The only consolation was that they had take-out for lunch and dinner.
The next day, Luo XiaoLou finished his milk and tried to calmly inform Yuan Xi that he was going to Master Yan’s today and decided to pretend that yesterday had never happened.
Yuan Xi looked at him, nodded, and before Luo XiaoLou left the house, handed him another yellow energy mask and said, “This is the one I asked my mother for, and it’s much better than the previous one. You don’t have to worry about your safety, but still wear it for your safety.” Since his identity had been revealed, Luo XiaoLou had someone around to secretly protect him, but it was still reassuring to have a few extra layers of security.
Luo XiaoLou picked it up and put it on, taking the material box full of snake vines out with him.
Seeing the car outside, Luo XiaoLou was shocked, and at that moment, his communicator rang. Clicking on the connection, Yuan Xi’s voice came over, “By the way, I bought a smart robot. When I’m inconvenienced, it will send you out. Don’t worry, it’s much more reliable than that fat green guy.”
Luo XiaoLou was then surprised to see how familiar the car looked, “Ah, I think I’ve seen the robot you bought. It’s pretty cute. It’s so thoughtful of you to buy a robot specifically for me ……” This was so hard to take that Luo XiaoLou didn’t dare to say the last sentence.
The other side of Yuan Xi seemed to be choked, then he shouted, “What do you mean I bought it for you? I bought it because no one cooked for me the days you were gone.” Then he angrily shut down the communicator.
Luo XiaoLou squinted at the communicator as 125 had leaped forward to give orders to the robot. It hadn’t even been two minutes, and the robot, who introduced himself as A2, had already become 125’s little brother.
Not having to take the free public hover car saved a lot of time on the road. After arriving at Kane, Luo XiaoLou contentedly walked from the parking lot to the door. As he walked, he read the messages he received yesterday, most of which were thank you’s from his friends after they signed for their gifts.
Tian Li’s was the most long-winded, almost going so far as to compliment him.
Mu Chen’s was the simplest, [Thank you very much. See you at the beginning of the school year.]
Luo XiaoLou was looking at the message with a smile on his face when he noticed someone walking in front of him, so he glanced up. As he was about to walk in, he heard a surprised voice, “Are you – are you Luo XiaoLou?”
Luo XiaoLou was stunned and immediately looked up, seeing a slightly older face. After recalling for a while, Luo XiaoLou smiled, “Old Brother Yang?”
This person was actually Old Yang, the worker Luo XiaoLou had met when he was working in that small mecha parts manufacturing factory.
Compared to that time, Old Yang’s complexion was much better, and he didn’t have the usual tired and sad look he used to have. He happily took Luo XiaoLou’s hand and said, “Little Brother Luo, I don’t know how you’ve been doing since then, but the big guys have been asking about you quite a bit.”
Although Luo XiaoLou had become Master Yan’s apprentice, few of the workers in the small factory had time to pay attention to the news. They were more concerned about how to improve their assembly skills and speed.
Even if someone read that news and discovered Luo XiaoLou’s name, few would connect with the formerly money-hungry teenager.
Old Yang was particularly impressed with Luo XiaoLou, not only because Luo XiaoLou had given him the assembly method, but also because his son, Yang Ke, had been giving him a hard time with the idea of the part for a long time. It was only after Yang Ke later told him that it was useless that he felt much better. Even so, he felt indebted to Luo XiaoLou in his heart.
“Me? Still in school, and occasionally still come out to work.” Luo XiaoLou smilingly replied, “How’s Older Brother Yang?”
Di Jia didn’t let anyone talk to Luo XiaoLou about Yang Ke stealing the design of that part, he didn’t even know that Yang Ke was Old Yang’s son.
Old Yang smiled in satisfaction, “School is good, you students should be in school, seize the opportunity to study, so you can be successful in the future. Older brother is now much more relaxed than before, and now his son has good grades in school and is valued by the PDG family for his internship here. Since he’s been competing, it’s been much easier for me. Especially in the last six months, this child has become more and more sensible, not only not spending the family’s money, but also working to earn his own money.”
He himself had been working hard to pay for his two children’s education, and was happier than anything to see them succeeding. In the past, he had kept these things to himself, but when he saw Luo XiaoLou, he was so excited and happy that he couldn’t help but say it.
After saying that, Old Yang patted Luo XiaoLou again and said, “Little Brother Luo, the help you gave me back then, I always remember it in my heart. If there is anything in the future, don’t be polite with me. I’ll help if I can, even if I can’t, there’s still my son.”
Luo XiaoLou heard about the PDG family and thought of Old Yang’s surname, his heart was moved and asked, “Old brother, your son is?”
“Hey, I won’t hide anything from you. He’s also from the same school as you, called Yang Ke. If you have anything to do, you might actually be able to help.”
The corner of Luo XiaoLou’s mouth twitched, but he still smiled and said, “Okay, thank you, Brother Yang. Since your son is able to provide for himself, you shouldn’t work so hard.” Although he didn’t get along well with Yang Ke, Old Yang was still a nice guy.
Old Yang answered the door and cheerfully left, not even realizing that Luo XiaoLou had entered the same door as Kane.
Luo XiaoLou was carrying a material box in his hand, and when he entered Master Yan’s lab, Master Yan was busy as usual. He glanced at Luo XiaoLou for a moment, then he beckoned the assistant next to him to take over his work, before he turned and walked to his office.
This was the first time Master Yan put aside his own busy work, and everyone was surprised to see him. It was only when they saw Luo XiaoLou that they smiled heartily. Master probably missed his apprentice.
