Captain Kent looked ugly and immediately said to Yuan Xi, “Your Highness, this is a dereliction of duty on my part, please-“
Yuan Xi calmly interrupted him, “It’s not your fault. With his methods, no one would find out if he wanted to leave. When we go out, immediately contact the military department and ask them to go to Sir Louis’ place to investigate.”
Yue Shang and the others were silent. While Yuan Xi was left with a few doubts. Locke actually left with the person they had casually rescued. Was he such a kind person?
Yuan Xi told everyone to go and rest until tomorrow, when they would study the loot they had gotten. Yue Shang smiled and turned to walk away. Behind him, Shao Rong, Hull, Mu Chen, and Abel also followed and left. Before leaving, Shao Rong gave Luo XiaoLou a meaningful glance, wearing his signature smile.
Luo XiaoLou felt a bit of a chill and immediately turned his attention back to Yuan Xi.
The few people on Yuan Xi’s side, on the other hand, were ambitiously walking in the opposite direction. At this instant, Luo XiaoLou suddenly had a strange feeling. These two groups were too distinct.
Yuan Xi was tired, Luo XiaoLou was even more exhausted. He was so overstretched that he felt dizzy. They would pass through the meteorite belt again tomorrow, and he would be needed to direct them, so he had to rest.
125 ran off with his tail up as soon as he realized it was okay, thinking he should remove any traces Locke had left on the Poseidon or any obstacle virus left by the invasion. In its heart, Luo XiaoLou’s stuff was its, and Yuan Xi’s stuff was of course its.
Therefore, the Poseidon should be its territory, and anyone other than it would be guilty of stealing the ship’s network systems!
After Luo XiaoLou washed up, he lay down on the bed and went straight to sleep. Yuan Xi lay beside him. After feeling Luo XiaoLou’s steady breathing, he opened his eyes and carefully studied Luo XiaoLou’s face before carefully leaning in very slowly and gently pressing his mouth to Luo XiaoLou’s lips.
When they get back, they’re getting married! Despite all the signs that something was wrong, Yuan Xi couldn’t sleep at the thought of going back to their justifiable wedding.
Looking at Luo XiaoLou sleeping peacefully beside him, Yuan Xi even had the illusion that this was their wedding night.
Thinking of this, Yuan Xi’s face turned even redder as he stared at Luo XiaoLou, suddenly feeling a little angry. What a great honor and pride it was for him to marry him!
Yuan Xi stared angrily at Luo XiaoLou, who responded with an exhale of sleep. He was about to pinch the soft flesh of his stomach when Luo XiaoLou suddenly rubbed against him, then naturally put his hands on Yuan Xi and hugged him gently.
Yuan Xi’s breath hitched. The indignant accusations in his heart suddenly failed to connect, and in the end he had to give up and embrace Luo XiaoLou with equally light hands and feet before burying his head on Luo XiaoLou’s shoulder.
Never mind. Luo XiaoLou loved him so deeply. His honored pride was probably just poorly expressed…
The next day, early in the morning, Yuan Xi casually tossed Luo XiaoLou a white box and ordered, “This is something brought out from Landa. Take a look at it first.”
Luo XiaoLou pretended to be flattered, looked at Yuan Xi and said with emotion, “Ah, how can you casually throw such a valuable thing to me?”
Yuan Xi’s lips curled up slightly and glanced at Luo XiaoLou, thinking with satisfaction, Mn, that’s the right kind of expression, but his mouth said, “Why are you nagging so much? Just take it and find a way to open this box.”
What’s with you being so reluctant about this? This was originally brought so I can marry you.
The moment Luo XiaoLou entered the studio, Luo XiaoLou saw Abel again, also holding a box in his hand. When he saw the box, 125’s tail moved as he sat on Luo XiaoLou’s shoulder.
Luo XiaoLou didn’t feel anything for this Abel who always looked at him with a defensive and even provocative disobedience. He greeted him politely and opened the door into his studio.
“What’s up?” Luo XiaoLou casually asked 125 who was still picking at the outlook.
“That box, ahem, is the box where I’ve already taken things, and there’s nothing in it, except for a rock I randomly put in there.” 125 said gloomily.
Luo XiaoLou was stunned and laughed, “Well, that’s unfortunate for them.”
125 sat in front of Luo XiaoLou and said, “Do you want to open this box now?”
Luo XiaoLou looked at it and said, “Mn, I’ll open it, but before I do, I want to talk about you first.”
125 was shocked and immediately looked around. Then he quickly stood up, almost afraid to face Luo XiaoLou’s eyes, and stammered, “That- I- I have nothing to talk about! I’m all right, I just measured the energy for myself this morning: multiple particle speeds, positive and negative quantum balance and all that – I’m really fine!”
Luo XiaoLou was shocked by 125’s actions, he didn’t say anything about 125, did he…?
“I think it’s better if you just confess.” Luo XiaoLou boarded up his face and said seriously, with a look like ‘I actually know all about it’.
125’s body stiffened, and it lowered its head heavily, hesitating for a while before saying apprehensively, “Actually, it’s like this, the last time I was set up for an upgrade by my master, that wasn’t very successful.”
“Why?!” Luo XiaoLou immediately stood up and took two steps towards 125, who, with a shock, seemed to want to turn around and run, but moved his right foot and stopped dejectedly.
Luo XiaoLou looked at 125 worriedly, touched its head with his hand and said, “Tell me what’s going on.”
Luo XiaoLou was immediately distressed as he watched 125’s tail, which was always cocked, carefully clip up, which was not at all like the fat one he was raising. Well, even if 125’s upgrade didn’t work and he couldn’t do anything in the future, he’d still keep it.
“The weapon system and all other systems were successfully upgraded, except for the personality emotion system.” 125 sneaked a glance at Luo XiaoLou, “At that time I was trying to save you, the personality system failed to connect twice, and I still have this personality. Originally my master had set me up to reach Landa Planet, install the weapon system, and then upgrade my personality to the calm and steady type.” 125 dropped his head again and whispered, “So, I still have this personality. I didn’t mean to fail the mission-” 125 stepped on his left foot and looked up uneasily, “You don’t mind me…do you?”
Luo XiaoLou slapped 125’s head hard. He had been scared to death for this guy. What’s this all about?
“I think I can put up with it, after all I’ve been putting up with it for so long, and I don’t have any intention of returning it, do I?”
Actually, if 125 did change his personality, he might not be able to accept it, ah. Well, it’s true that calm and steady is popular, but – the child is still best the way it was, ah. As 125’s foster caregiver, he’d never wanted to change with anyone else, despite all sorts of annoyances by 125.
“Really – really?!” 125 looked up in surprise and asked.
“If you change your character’s emotional system, are you still you?” Luo XiaoLou said posthumously. What the hell was 125’s owner thinking? He wouldn’t want to change his personality even if he had mecha waiting for him for many years.
125 looked up in confusion, and stressed, “It’s me, of course. I’ll always have my memory chip, of course.”
Luo XiaoLou rubbed 125’s big head hard, “Okay, you’ll always be you. But that’s it. Can we not upgrade from now on?”
125 flicked his tail unhappily, “Other than that, I’m already leveled up.”
“Mn, you’re the best. You’re the most unbeatable, powerful, and knowledgeable mecha in the universe who actually has a big warehouse,” Luo XiaoLou said with a smile.
125 stared at Luo XiaoLou for a few moments, then suddenly ran over, hugged Luo XiaoLou’s neck with his short forearms, and said, “Actually, my former master loved me too, really.”
“Mn, I know.”
125 finished being emotional and not too proudly sat back down in his original place. This time his heart was completely fine and his confidence was full again. Looking Luo XiaoLou up and down a few times, “Actually, there’s nothing wrong with you besides being weak and stupid.”
“…You won’t feel disappointed with me for not reviving the exotic beast family?” Luo XiaoLou likewise asked the question he had always wanted to ask.
125 looked at Luo XiaoLou in confusion, and after a while, said in an exaggerated voice, “Are you okay? How dare I ask for that!? If you rescue my former master, he will be responsible for reviving the old and proud family of the exotic beast!”
“Then forget I ever asked.” Luo XiaoLou began studying the box in his hand with a black face.
It was obviously a box to be opened with Source of Consciousness power. Luo XiaoLou input Source of Consciousness power, and without much effort, the box opened. Luo XiaoLou was surprised to find that there were three space knobs inside.
“What is this?”
125 who was busy organizing his materials took a glance and said distractedly, “Oh, it’s the most rudimentary bio-mecha. It’s one level lower than the drawing I gave you, probably put there to confuse other people.”
Luo XiaoLou laughed bitterly, even if it was something the exotic beast used to confuse people, it was still helpful to the current humans. He picked up the three space knobs and headed outside, finding Abel’s door open as well as the one to the corridor, where the person talking to Abel was actually Shao Rong.
Shao Rong was politely suggesting that Abel forcefully destroy the box because there’s no way Abel could open it. Abel once again looked at Luo XiaoLou with an unconvinced look and paled a bit when he saw what Luo XiaoLou was holding.
Shao Rong laughed, unconcerned. Of course Luo XiaoLou could open it. It wasn’t Abel’s problem at all.
Luo XiaoLou was walking down the hall when his head suddenly became dizzy, he almost fell on the floor. He had obviously slept well yesterday…
When the three space knobs were handed over to Yuan Xi, expressing that there could be biological mecha inside, Yuan Nuo, Luo ShaoTian, and Ling Xu in the hall were all pleasantly surprised.
Biological mecha had always been the mecha they wanted, or rather, the mecha all of humanity wanted. The military had been working on it, but with little success.
Captain Kent’s hands shook with excitement when he found out what they had achieved, but he gave strict assurances to Yuan Xi that he would keep the secret.
In the afternoon, Abel finally delivered their prize, a stone of strange shape and color.
Yue Shang’s entire group studied it to no avail and prepared to take it back to Imperial Capital Tiras to present to the military.
That night, they finally reached the edge of the meteorite belt again.
Yuan Xi likewise asked for a night’s rest, and Luo XiaoLou, who had been dizzy lately, was even more supportive. The next morning, they were in the best of spirits as they once again tackled the dangerous meteorite belt.
Locke said that the accessible pathway was only at a fixed place at a fixed time, and at that time Locke caught up with them, so naturally they had to continue to challenge themselves.
This time, they made it through with no fear, and after the first time, with mental preparation, several of them had moved much better. The difference was that afterwards, Luo XiaoLou was unconscious for two days and one night.
A red-eyed Yuan Xi stayed by his side until he woke up and the ship’s doctor vouched that Luo XiaoLou was fine and he shouldn’t still be asleep.
Upon arrival in Tiras, Luo XiaoLou and Yuan Xi both began to look happy, they were really going to have a wedding. And as everyone disembarked from the battleship, Abel passed by Luo XiaoLou while the others were farther away, and Abel whispered, “Next time we meet again, I won’t lose.”
