Luo XiaoLou was dumbfounded, then surprised, and hugged 125, “Just in time, my dear! You’re really – it’s rare for you to show your face like that!”
125, who had been wiggling around waiting for a compliment, was not happy, and he rolled his eyes and then corrected, “You should have at least said, ‘Honey, you’re the best-’”
“Well, when Yuan Xi recovers, you can be called whatever you want.” Luo XiaoLou said, then took the medicine from 125’s hand and handed it to Yuan Xi.
“This is the potion that removes the effects from you. 125 has been preparing it since he came into the grey hole. It’s extraordinary that it’s been developed so promptly.” Luo XiaoLou said with a smile and then added with a slight hesitation, “Are- you taking it now? Or are you going to go out and take it?”
The drug’s effects hadn’t been tested yet, but 125’s integrity was better than its aesthetics in terms of rigor.
Yuan Xi gave 125 a suspicious glance, causing the fat green T-Rex to blush for a moment, but it dared not speak up.
“Now,” Yuan Xi said succinctly. Once Yuan Xi said he would take the medicine, 125 explained the dosage and Yuan Xi took it as he was told.
Luo XiaoLou waited with bated breath.
After ten seconds or so, Yuan Xi looked up at him as if he wanted to tell him something, but before he could say anything, he closed his eyes and fell straight down.
Luo XiaoLou’s heart was pounding in alarm as he placed his trembling hands over Yuan Xi’s heart and under his nose. He was relieved to find that Yuan Xi’s breathing was deep and steady.
Luo XiaoLou struggled to lift Yuan Xi on the bed and then stared at him anxiously.
125 stared incredulously, until he cried out, “This- this can’t be! I’ve thoroughly experimented and tested that it’s harmless to humans …” The only thing that comforted it was that Luo XiaoLou wasn’t blaming it.
As Luo XiaoLou sat anxiously on the edge of the bed, Yuan Xi began to sweat, and before long his clothes were soaked through. Luo XiaoLou simply undressed Yuan Xi and wiped his body with a hot towel over and over again.
Luo XiaoLou didn’t dare to sleep for the rest of the night, and only when it was almost dawn did he start to nod off repeatedly after seeing that Yuan Xi was no longer sweating and his breathing had stabilized. But he couldn’t help but worry, and simply laid a hand on Yuan Xi’s heart.
Luo XiaoLou felt his eyelids close for only two seconds before he was awakened by a whirlwind.
Luo XiaoLou almost jumped in shock as a hot body pinned him down, holding him in place with such force that his voice was muffled. It took a while before Yuan Xi looked up and said impatiently, “Don’t move! Groping me last night and trying to seduce me this morning- Are you not going out?”
Luo XiaoLou stared intently at Yuan Xi. His eyes were bright, his features strikingly beautiful in the early morning light, and his familiar overbearing gaze – no, it was harsher, almost impossible to look directly at.
But Luo XiaoLou faced it with a smile and raised his hand to caress Yuan Xi’s brow, murmuring, “We’re married, aren’t we? You’re my man. Why shouldn’t I seduce you?”
For the first time, Yuan Xi couldn’t say anything and his ears quickly turned red as he stared viciously at Luo XiaoLou beneath him. He was soft, warm, and timid – like his pet, and he was fearful of forces greater than himself. Presumably he was classified in that category as well, but that was nothing. Husbands were supposed to be able to control their wives, or else they wouldn’t have turned over a new leaf – but the little goblin had managed to confuse him, the sole heir to the empire, with so much relevant training and repeated reminders and advice from those around him.
But he didn’t regret it at all. He felt comfortable with Luo XiaoLou. He felt at home, and he needed his protection, and it was his responsibility. Moreover, Luo XiaoLou would help him clean up the house, cook him fish, and make energy boxes, mecha, weapons and other things to please him…
He was just too cute.
Even though he’s an exotic beast, his skin is so smooth, and he’s so docile, so cute and sweet. The blue watery eyes, the white soft fur- I just want to ravage it or give it a rub a couple of times. I want to ravage him. Or bathe him, until he’s all wet and covered in soapy bubbles. Then help him dry his hair and squeeze him until he’s pink. Then look at him with his head hanging and make him beg– My God, am I dizzy? What am I thinking?
“Hey, are you hot?” Luo XiaoLou pretended to be innocent and asked while touching Yuan Xi’s red ear with his hand.
“….You! It’s because of you that I am!” Yuan Xi was quite the annoyed fighter.
“I was wrong, my dear,” Luo XiaoLou apologized, holding back a laugh. Then he kissed Yuan Xi and asked, “Quickly, tell me how you’re doing with the drug and why you were unconscious for a night. I was scared to death.”
Yuan Xi’s attention was successfully diverted and he sat up with Luo XiaoLou, then let go of Luo XiaoLou, stared down at his own hand and confessed softly, “I can’t even touch you with any force now.”
After saying that, Yuan Xi clenched his fist hard and suddenly swung it across the room. Two seconds later, the sturdy wall suddenly cracked open with a distinct fine line.
Luo XiaoLou slowly opened his mouth wide, then swallowed his saliva, and asked, “Have you already tested out your strength?”
Immediately, Luo XiaoLou thought uneasily about the issue of domestic violence and escape routes. Must God give all the benefits to Yuan Xi without giving him any way to resist?
“Your ancient martial arts are at the eighth level?” Luo XiaoLou thought of what Li Suo said.
Yuan Xi looked down again, moved his arms and legs, then shook his head, “No, I don’t understand how, but, I seem to have broken through Rank SSS, to Rank SSSS. I can feel it.”
Genetic rank SSSS!! Luo XiaoLou gawked at Yuan Xi, Legendary SSSS! In all of the Federation, not one person has ever reached that level!
Luo XiaoLou asked sourly, “Are you sure?” The distance between him and Yuan Xi seemed to have grown a lot further. How can he ask for equal treatment in the future…
“Pretty sure. What’s that look on your face?” Yuan Xi frowned as he asked.
“Uh- I’m just- just so excited and happy, Honey.” Luo XiaoLou said as he touched Yuan Xi’s chest, Well, at least he didn’t turn into a horrible muscle man.
Yuan Xi looked at him twice, pulled off the covers and carried Luo XiaoLou to the bathroom. Then, early in the morning, Yuan Xi took care of Luo XiaoLou, who had been worried all night wondering if he was dead or alive.
The newlyweds had obviously been up late again, and Li Jay looked at Yuan Xi with resentment. He had not eaten Luo XiaoLou’s breakfast for several days, and Yuan Xi had the audacity to give excuses like they had stayed up late fixing weapons, or were getting dressed. We’re all men. Who doesn’t know what happened?
Li Jay and Xiao Qiao understood, but they didn’t ask any questions.
After the meal, Yuan Xi asked Luo XiaoLou to bring 125 into Li Suo’s room.
When Li Suo saw Yuan Xi enter, he also stood up, frowned and asked Yuan Xi, “What’s going on?”
Yuan Xi replied, “I took the anti-radiation medication and became like this.”
Li Suo had Yuan Xi do a few moves, then after a long silence, he asked, “You were originally strong?”
Luo XiaoLou immediately confirmed, “Mn, very unusually strong.”
Li Suo took a few steps back and sat on the edge of the bed, as if he couldn’t handle the huge surprise, “…Level fifteen, close to the peak of ancient martial arts. This is the first time in my life that I’ve encountered it.”
Luo XiaoLou mused in a similarly dreamy tone beside him, “Rank SSSS, I’m also encountering it for the first time…”
Yuan Xi gazed at the two men and clarified, “I didn’t come here for this. I wanted to ask if you want to use this medicine.”
Li Suo was dumbfounded and asked with a trembling voice, “Can I use it too?”
“Sure, but it’s hard to say if there are any side effects. Our pet made it, but we can’t expect it to possibly be responsible.” Yuan Xi declared, casually handing the medicine he got from 125 to Li Suo.
125 whispered in Luo XiaoLou’s ear, “Why should I be responsible? I’m an exotic beast mecha, a noble exotic beast mecha, and the first point in my orders isn’t to ever harm humans or anything. I just don’t want to hurt you!”
Li Suo’s fingers shivered as he took it, and clutched it in his numb hand. He took a few steps back and forth, then returned to Yuan Xi and stammered, “I- I don’t know what will happen after I take the drug, but before I do, I’m going to ask you for one thing.”
Yuan Xi said calmly, “Don’t worry, I’ll find the person you’re talking about. The portrait is clear. I don’t think I’ll be mistaken.”
As if a weight had been lifted, Li Suo sat down, looked at the medicine, and suddenly said, “I’ll go to Brother Wang’s place to take it, and if I get better, I’ll come back to you. If I never come back, then it’s up to you. I hope you all live well.”
Yuan Xi nodded, and even Luo XiaoLou didn’t persuade Li Suo to stay.
After that, Luo XiaoLou asked Yuan Xi to keep the black soft sword.
Yuan Xi, Li Jay, and Xiao Qiao went out. In the last few days before the competition, they still had to get acquainted with the Yi family’s team.
Luo XiaoLou took out the prince’s materials and examined the properties.
Lately, the weapons Luo XiaoLou produced were becoming more and more popular. Those who provided less advanced materials were able to get fourth- and fifth-grade energy swords. Luo XiaoLou’s fees were reasonable. But the real attraction was the wide variety of styles and functions that were different from those sold in stores.
Luo XiaoLou would make energy swords according to the owner’s skills and movement characteristics, which was more suitable for them.
District C, District B, and even District A had a few weapon shops extend offers, but Luo XiaoLou rejected them all because he had no intention of staying in the grey hole permanently. The weapon shops knew about Luo XiaoLou’s relationship with the Ling Xiao Family, so though they were jealous of his talent, they didn’t dare to do anything rash.
After looking through the materials once, Luo XiaoLou sighed. Worthy of being a prince, the properties of these materials were really too advanced. They were rich in a large amount of grey energy, not to mention that brimming fifth grade energy stone.
Luo XiaoLou took a deep breath and settled down. 125 sensibly didn’t interrupt. Because its medicine helped a lot, Luo XiaoLou praised it for a long time according to the way it had asked him to compliment it before, and also promised to give it two more Level 5 energy stones if he earned them again.
Luo XiaoLou first spent half a day conceiving three energy sword structures which he thought were the best.
Then starting in the afternoon, Luo XiaoLou began to craft energy swords.
On the first afternoon, he only made one, but in the middle of the process, he dismantled it twice because he wasn’t satisfied with it. Even if it wasn’t for someone with the identity of a second prince, he wouldn’t have wasted such high-grade materials.
Finally, when Luo XiaoLou finished creating the energy sword in one breath, he raised his hand to wipe the sweat from his forehead and nodded in satisfaction as he looked at the slender and sharp energy sword.
This sword was quite a bit narrower than the traditional energy sword here, but it was easy to use and did not compromise the energy of the energy stone in the slightest. After resting for a while, Luo XiaoLou slowly stood up and took the advanced energy tester that Dees had left behind.
After putting the sword on it, in just a moment, the energy tester suddenly sounded an alert: ‘Congratulations, your energy sword has reached Level 11 after appraisal. Do you need to register your proprietary weapon now?’
