The huge pull of the grey hole caused the two mecha to quickly plummet downwards. It was a good thing that Cloudy Sky and 125 were still tightly connected because of the black soft whip. However, the further down they went, the greater the effect of the negative particles and cosmic rays, the more pronounced the suction became, and the two mecha began to make horrible noises, as if they were in danger of being torn to pieces in the next instant.
The red alert on 125’s screen, however, never stopped, and Luo XiaoLou watched in despair as it grew redder and redder. Were they going to die here? No! He didn’t want this kind of tragedy to happen on the first day of his wedding! A sweet wedding night, a beautiful newlywed honeymoon, he couldn’t ask for more. But how could it be so miserable!
Thinking sadly and angrily, the bracelet on Luo XiaoLou’s left wrist suddenly flickered. A huge ball of light wrapped the two mecha tightly. The alert on 125’s screen disappeared, and Luo XiaoLou collapsed onto the driver’s seat in relief. He had never seen such a large shield before. Worthy of the high quality shield given by His Highness Feng JiaLing, it was reliable and reassuring.
It saved him and Yuan Xi at a critical moment…Yuan Xi!
Luo XiaoLou then remembered who was behind him and immediately stood up, paws pressed to the console wailing towards 125. “What to do? Yuan Xi, he’s coming after us! God, I’ve made it impossible for him to get out. What am I going to do! And – he’s going to kill me!”
“I’m glad you finally remembered, but you really shouldn’t count on me at a time like this, I think I’m under enough mental stress!” 125 answered him seriously with a tremble.
“…” Luo XiaoLou was completely speechless. He felt his heart sinking faster and faster like the two mecha.
“Despite the high-energy shields, though, I have to say that with the penetration of negative particles and high-energy gamma rays – the concentration of particles and cosmic rays here is surprisingly high. Cloudy Sky could be damaged, and then Yuan Xi will be in danger,” 125 said abruptly.
“No, we can’t let Yuan Xi be in danger!” Luo XiaoLou stiffened, then said anxiously, “Can you help? 125, you mustn’t let anything happen to Yuan Xi!” For the first time, Luo XiaoLou felt extremely desperate and helpless.
“I’ll try,” 125 said hesitantly. He began to try to establish communication with Cloudy Sky.
It was heavily influenced by the outside world, but thankfully, it actually connected.
Luo XiaoLou watched warily as Yuan Xi and 125 sent a few messages, then the two mecha quickly approached to establish a connection port.
Before Luo XiaoLou knew what was happening, the cockpit-side door suddenly opened and Yuan Xi jumped in furiously. He stowed away Cloudy Sky hanging from his neck.
Luo XiaoLou was overwhelmed for two seconds, his eyes glazed over. Finally he gave a small shriek and quickly jumped back, “125, are you crazy?! He’s going to kill me!”
125 started playing dumb and didn’t squeak, pretending it had died…
Yuan Xi glared angrily at Luo XiaoLou, but then quickly, as if remembering something, looked to the left and right and yelled out, “Where is that bastard?!”
Who? Does that mean me (it)? Luo XiaoLou and 125 thought at the same time, both keeping a high level of vigilance and tacit understanding as they tried to remain silent. In fact, Luo XiaoLou wanted to faint immediately, but he didn’t dare under Yuan Xi’s murderous glare.
Yuan Xi finally cast his suspicious gaze on the driver’s seat after failing to find anyone in the entire cockpit. He took a few sunken steps, picked up the white animal that had retreated to the edge of the cockpit with no more room to hide, and choked the animal with his hands.
Trying to control himself and not strangle the handful, he then gritted his teeth and asked, “Luo XiaoLou?”
The animal shuddered, hesitated for two seconds, and gave a small nod of its head.
“You!” Yuan Xi was so angry that his breath began to quicken. His hands unconsciously used force, and Luo XiaoLou was pinched back to stare. “You- you’ve actually been lying to me!”
Luo XiaoLou cried out in pain, his blue eyes watering, and Yuan Xi stiffened, his hands relaxed considerably, then his face darkened, as if angry with himself for showing concern. He sank to his knees and looked left and right, finally sitting down in the driver’s seat, changing his stranglehold to cradling the furry thing.
Staring at the white animal in his hand, as Luo XiaoLou himself described, that was pretty honest and kind, could this fucking be an exotic beast?! Did Luo XiaoLou think he hadn’t seen an exotic beast?
After half a day of silence, Yuan Xi finally calmed down and coldly stared at Luo XiaoLou who couldn’t stop shaking in his hands and asked, “You- are you really an exotic beast?”
Noticing the animal in his hands actually thinking, Yuan Xi threateningly grabbed its two shaking front paws with his other hand, “If you dare to lie…”
The white animal immediately began nodding with a pleading look in its eyes.
Looking at the look which was so similar to Luo XiaoLou himself, Yuan Xi was dumbfounded, then roared, “Don’t look at me!”
Luo XiaoLou lowered his head dejectedly before Yuan Xi calmed down a bit, then calmed down for a few seconds and asked, “Who’s driving this mecha?”
Luo XiaoLou stared at him, then began to smack one of his legs, and then pointed at himself.
Yuan Xi looked at him in surprise. Yes, since he was an exotic beast, it was possible to drive a mecha even if his genetic level wasn’t enough.
After a moment of silence, Yuan Xi suddenly questioned aloud, “You’re 521?!”
Luo XiaoLou nodded again, feeling that there was probably no hope of him being spared today.
“No wonder…” Yuan Xi mumbled, “So, you were the one I stabbed at the time?” Seeing the animal nodding in his hand, Yuan Xi scowled, pulling the fur behind Luo XiaoLou’s back hard, “How dare you – do you know I might have killed you?!”
Luo XiaoLou almost cried, Jesus, don’t pull my fur! It hurts, asshole! Try it yourself! This is abuse! Luo XiaoLou had no choice but to mewl and whine a few times.
Yuan Xi was stunned. He was crying? I haven’t done anything yet! Luo XiaoLou was an exotic beast, shouldn’t he… what to do with this guy? I’ve got him now, but he won’t come back and I can’t fight.
Thinking of this, Yuan Xi suddenly frowned, shook Luo XiaoLou vigorously and said with a huff, “Stop crying and change back!”
Luo XiaoLou was dumbfounded. When did he cry? Besides, if he could change back he would have done so long ago, and then would have put in a few good words to get Yuan Xi to release him for their affection – at least he wouldn’t be hanging on to pluck his hair! But he doesn’t have a bit of Source of Consciousness right now and can’t find the feeling at all…
He shook his head at Yuan Xi and wrote on his hand with his paw, “I can’t change back.”
Yuan Xi took a breath, “Temporarily? Or?!”
Luo XiaoLou shuddered and wrote again, “I don’t know. It should be temporary.”
A soft paw scratched against his hand, and it was slightly itchy. Yuan Xi silently gripped Luo XiaoLou’s paw back, Shit, what about this? What can we do about it? Shouldn’t this damned exotic beast be ugly and vicious, and shouldn’t it be arrogant and cunning and ready to bite back? This, this…
Yuan Xi carried the animal in his hands, his face shifting.
Yuan Xi lowered his head to the animal’s big ears and said in a gentle and all the more terrifying tone, “What do you think I should do with you? My dear, you know what I hate most, don’t you? Do you know what we do to exotic beasts? I’ve actually been meaning to try to find one.”
Luo XiaoLou was shocked, tried to struggle and was pulled by the fur again. He immediately did not move and cried some more. As a matter of fact, when he cried again, the fury in Yuan Xi’s heart slowly seemed to abate as he carried Luo XiaoLou around roughly.
Luo XiaoLou struggled to hold on to one of Yuan Xi’s hands and wrote on his palm, “Let me go. I promise, I won’t kill anyone, I’ll obey the law.”
Stumbling over the words, Yuan Xi grunted, “That’s impossible.”
Seeing Luo XiaoLou become rigid, Yuan Xi lifted him up and said slowly, “I’ll bring you back and convict you, lock you up, and for the rest of your life, you won’t be going anywhere.”
Luo XiaoLou’s heart went ice cold, when 125’s serious electronic voice suddenly began to warn, “Attention, landing immediately, landing immediately!”
Both of them were shocked. Luo XiaoLou immediately looked out. God, the energy shield had disappeared at some point, and now it was 125 against a sky of negative particles and rays descending continuously.
The screen in front of him listed in detail the damage to the mecha, Luo XiaoLou couldn’t bear to look at it. If it wasn’t for Yuan Xi, it probably would have screamed out in pain…
The bottom of the gray hole, which they had thought to be a dark gray hole, didn’t seem to be what they thought it was, at least there was light in it. The surface wasn’t bare either, there seemed to be vegetation.
After a noticeable shake, they were suddenly thrown down. 125 made a metallic sound of a warning “Watch out ……” then went silent, and it completely transformed into a plain blue necklace, without luster.
Luckily, now that it was close to the ground, Yuan Xi grabbed Luo XiaoLou in his arms as they fell down.
Yuan Xi slammed down on the ground. Luo XiaoLou was unhurt, but being an animal, he was sensitive to an extremely dangerous sight that was staring at them. However, Yuan Xi, who should have had no difficulty coping with that height, was lying silently on the ground, not moving.
