On the third day of the competition, all the participating teams returned to the Ancient Martial Arts Association, where the contestants would register their trophies. They would stay there for one night, and wait for the results to come out the next day.
The top ten could move into District A at any time as long as they want.
Luo XiaoLou was content staying at Yuan Xi’s side. After he had been kidnapped, and rescued, he followed Yuan Xi to fully experience the hunting trip. Although he’s all kinds of cumbersome and he’s not very good at anything other than running away, Yuan Xi was an absolutely strong man and no one in the Yi family had raised any objections. Moreover, even with Luo XiaoLou, Yuan Xi still had the most prey, and those who were benefiting from it couldn’t say anything.
After the Yi family registered, Ino led the team back to their assigned courtyard. Luo XiaoLou followed Yuan Xi back to his room, with no shortage of envious looks behind him.
In the Yi family’s team of ten men and two women, women were already few, and both were in their twenties, one gentle, one feminine,, and both were called beautiful women. All the men desired to hold and protect them.
The performance of Yuan Xi was undoubtedly the most amazing in the Western Mountain Conference. The two beauties’ looks toward Yuan Xi quickly changed from arrogance to admiration and love. However after Li Jay lazily pointed out that Yuan Xi was not only married, but his wife was also the man following him, they both secretly gnashed their teeth, hating that they had not met him before his marriage.
“How is he worthy of Yuan Xi?” complained the woman in the pink dress with narrowed eyes as she watched the two leave.
“They haven’t been here long. They probably don’t understand that this is the world of ancient martial arts, and it likely won’t be long before they’re not well matched.” The other girl in white said in a warm voice.
Li Jay looked at the two beside him, shrugged his shoulders and turned away. Not a match? A weapon master who can make a Grade 6 energy sword from Grade 3 materials is always a target for everyone. Not to mention Luo XiaoLou’s good looks and good temper… He never put up a fight when he was bullied by Yuan Xi. And he can even cook…
The good-tempered Luo XiaoLou was currently rubbing Yuan Xi’s back. Yuan Xi’s size hadn’t changed much, but it was as if he could feel the terrifying strength beneath the thin muscles when he touched them.
Luo XiaoLou was sighing in admiration as he stroked Yuan Xi’s back, not even realizing that his movements had changed from rubbing to fondling.
From broad shoulders to ……Mn? Luo XiaoLou returned to his senses and noticed the spot he was touching, blushed, and hastily pretended as if nothing had happened as he moved his hand from Yuan Xi’s bottom to the top of his back.
“Does it feel good to touch?” Yuan Xi suddenly asked carelessly.
“It’s still- okay- Mn, no, I’m just helping you take a shower- a bath.” Luo XiaoLou stammered.
Yuan Xi gazed back at Luo XiaoLou with deep interest and tugged him from behind to the front, “In that case, help me wash up in front too.”
Luo XiaoLou was dumbfounded, and seeing Yuan Xi’s expression and then his naked body in the water, his face reddened even more. Why is it that he’d been married for so long, and had done this and that many times, but still couldn’t hold back at the sight of Yuan Xi?
In the steaming hot tub, their breaths mixed and melded with each other. Luo XiaoLou’s hand moved over Yuan Xi’s chest. The water droplets slid from Luo XiaoLou’s hand, down Yuan Xi’s shoulder, to his waist slowly.
As Luo XiaoLou’s hand was about to withdraw, Yuan Xi suddenly grasped it. He dragged his hand down, and placed it on that already hard part. Licking his lips, he commanded, “Here. Serve me. I will make you feel good.”
Saying this, Yuan Xi released Luo XiaoLou’s hand.
Then his hand went up to Luo XiaoLou’s chest, and the other hand, slowly, moved between Luo XiaoLou’s legs. He gently squeezed it a few times, and then fondled the tip with his fingers.
Luo XiaoLou couldn’t help but gasp.
Yuan Xi stopped moving, then smiled slightly into Luo XiaoLou’s confused, needy eyes. Huskily, he murmured, “You know what to do, babe.”
He loved the feeling of being in control, and Luo XiaoLou was always easy to dominate.
Luo XiaoLou helplessly submitted, and his hands began to move, sliding his grip to please.
Yuan Xi leaned in close to Luo XiaoLou’s flushed, gasping face and asked harshly, “Were you really as old as you said you were before? Gee, that old and you haven’t had a bit of experience?”
Luo XiaoLou mumbled in a daze, “I wasn’t old at all. I didn’t want to get married early, and have a bunch of kids to raise… Besides, I’m very experienced – ah! What are you doing?!” Luo XiaoLou snapped out of it when his member was gripped harshly and yelled angrily.
“How experienced are you?!” Yuan Xi suddenly glared at Luo XiaoLou with annoyance, then squeezed the frightened little thing in his hand as Luo XiaoLou trembled, “Speak! Who else has touched this place besides me?”
“I- oh shit, ow! Don’t you move! No- no one else but you! My experience is – is like yours, reading on the internet!” Luo XiaoLou shouted. Oh my god, this guy is so possessive! Luckily he transmigrated before he got engaged, if he had been married…Luo XiaoLou simply couldn’t imagine it.
Yuan Xi peered at Luo XiaoLou for a few seconds and saw he wasn’t lying before he hummed in satisfaction. His fingers squeezed Luo XiaoLou’s chest again before he pulled the man over and kissed him.
“Wait! I- am I the only one …ugh…” Luo XiaoLou hurriedly asked in between kisses. This question was also important to him, ah!
Yuan Xi’s hands stiffened and his face turned red as he glared at Luo XiaoLou, “Why are you so long-winded?!”
Xiao Qiao stared dumbly at Ino in the doorway and asked carefully, “Why are you in the same room as me?”
Ino gave her a blank look, “What are you afraid of? You don’t need to care about those rumors.”
Because Ino had unprecedentedly brought Li Jay and Xiao Qiao to the Ancient Martial Arts Tournament, Li Jay was stronger, at least he improved quickly and his standard wasn’t low anymore. Xiao Qiao, however, was the weakest of the participants in the Yi family, and it wasn’t like there weren’t any who were better than her. It is said through the grapevine that Xiao Qiao had seduced Young Master Ino with the help of a man.
Xiao Qiao’s expression was not natural. She had no idea that two people needed to stay in a room, and would be assigned to a room with Ino. There is no way she could ask for a change. She was still acting as a man. People naturally treated her as a man. Besides, she had already taken off her clothes, so it was unlikely that she would leave in front of Ino.
Ino took one look at the still nervous Xiao Qiao and grinned, “You don’t have to worry, there’s no such thing as keeping a man or not. Anyway, it doesn’t matter if I tell you, I’m not a man, I’m a woman.” With that, Ino grinned widely and took off her coat.
Looking at the rising and falling breasts, Xiao Qiao was stunned by this sudden news. The Yi family, besides Yuan Xi, counted Ino as the best. Xiao Qiao really didn’t expect that Yi’s second young master was actually a woman!
Ino walked towards the bed, saw Xiao Qiao’s dazed expression, quirked up the corners of her mouth and smiled, sharply went to the bed, lifted Xiao Qiao’s chin with her hand, leaned in close to her and declared, “Don’t worry needlessly, Little Brother, I don’t like little white guys like you. I like women. When you’re sleeping, stay out of my way.”
Xiao Qiao shivered as she ducked under the covers. When Ino had confessed she was a woman, she was going to reveal her own identity as well, but now Xiao Qiao wasn’t so sure. Ino laughed, pulled the blanket over and lay down, not paying any more attention to Xiao Qiao.
The next morning, Luo XiaoLou wanly followed behind Yuan Xi. Xiao Qiao obviously hadn’t slept well either, based on the intense blue color under her eyes. She had worried all night and was mocked by a surprised Ino in the morning.
Halfway there, Luo XiaoLou was stopped by a group of people, at the head was one with blond hair, the Second Prince, who looked at Luo XiaoLou several times before asking, “Is everything alright? I heard you followed Ling Xiao for three days? It didn’t scare you, did it?”
Luo XiaoLou shook his head and replied curtly, “No, thank you for thinking of me.” There weren’t many people here who didn’t know this valiant and warlike Second Prince, and they were all surprised to see him stop to talk to Luo XiaoLou.
“The weapon was received. It’s really unexpected. However, it’s not convenient to talk right now, so we’ll discuss it in detail after the awards are given.” The second prince glanced at the raised platform that had been erected in front of him and said.
Luo XiaoLou nodded, and as a family member, followed Yuan Xi to the award ceremony.
The Zhu Family team was first, and the Yi Family team was second. As a dark horse, the Yi Family had risen directly from thirteenth place last year to second place, not only because the Yi family had worked hard to grow over the past year, but also because they had hired a mysterious and powerful foreign aid.
The Tang family, who were supposed to advance to the top three, had been relegated to the fifteenth place in the last six months, and it was heard that they had been schemed against by an unknown expert.
The prize Yuan Xi received was not only materials, but also 30 Higher Level 5 Energy Stones and a light golden vest.
Li Jay looked at it with envy and said, “Brother Yuan, this is Level 8 armor, and energy sword attacks of level 8 or below are completely ineffective against it. Moreover, it can change size with the body, so it won’t feel restrictive when worn. The whole team only received two pieces, and Young Master Ino gave you one. It’s something you can’t even buy outside.”
Yuan Xi peered at it and handed it to Luo XiaoLou, “Go back and you wear it.”
Li Jay stared at it and said, “But, Luo XiaoLou doesn’t go hunting, ah! It would be more appropriate for Brother Yuan to use it himself.”
Yuan Xi said indifferently, “Well, I’ll just buy a random one.”
But in his head, he thought of how it could change size, and if Luo XiaoLou dared to shift again, then he would have a pet in a vest, and it tickled his heart to think about it…
After the award ceremony, the top twenty remained. The rest could stay in District A for three more days, then the teams that didn’t belong to District A had to return to their respective areas immediately.
That afternoon, Luo XiaoLou and Yuan Xi were invited by the Second Prince to his chambers. The Second Prince glanced at Yuan Xi, but knowing the relationship between them, he smiled and invited them into the living room.
The second prince first confessed to Luo XiaoLou, “Letting you be abducted from my courtyard a few days ago was really a dereliction of duty on my part. Also, the person who leaked your location has been expelled from District A by me.”
Luo XiaoLou thought of the young man and didn’t say anything, but instead asked, “I wonder if the old man who helped me hand over my things has been selected? I also wanted to thank him in person.”
The second prince laughed, “Of course. Not only was he selected, but he also became the vice president of the Royal Armsmaster. His craftsmanship and experience is very astounding. Of course yours too. I really didn’t expect that you could actually create an eleventh-grade weapon, and three of them at that.”
Saying that, the second prince lifted the energy knife at hand and gazed at it twice in fascination before saying, “These three weapons, I like them very much. In addition, I also want to buy the structural diagrams of these three weapons so that the Royal Armsmaster can study them. If you’re willing, I’m willing to pay a price you’ll be happy with.”
Luo XiaoLou smiled. His weapons were not something that had been manufactured with diagrams. However, the structure diagrams could indeed be designed by him as well, “Sure.”
“And, the most important thing is that energy bow of yours.” The second prince’s eyes suddenly lit up, “Just that bow can’t satisfy me. I also need to purchase the structure diagram. Money, energy stones, or materials, I can give you that amount, and also, as my promise, I will promise you one thing.” The second prince said ambitiously as he handed him a list. In fact, he also wanted to invite Luo XiaoLou to be the Royal Armsmaster.
“Well, I think that old man could make the energy bow if he had a diagram. I discussed it with him.” Luo XiaoLou said thoughtfully.
Luo XiaoLou looked at the list in his hand, one thousand fifth-grade energy stones and two thousand materials, before putting it away with satisfaction. He smiled, “Second Prince is so sincere, I can’t even say no even if I wanted to. These are the energy diagrams for the four weapons.”
Luo XiaoLou simply pulled the drawings from his shirt, and he handed them to the Second Prince before slowly adding, “Your Highness, my request is that I would like to take a trip into the temple with Yuan Xi.”
The second prince’s face changed and he looked at Luo XiaoLou in surprise for a long time before saying, “I remember that you just arrived not long ago, why do you want to go there?”
“Because we’re very devout believers in the God of Creation and wanted to see that miracle for ourselves.” Luo XiaoLou said without moving a muscle.
The second prince bowed his head and thought for a moment. If it was a normal person asking, he would have already refused, but now, he really wanted these diagrams, and the three weapons were all excellent.
After thinking for a long time, the second prince looked up and said, “Before I do that, I want to say one thing first. After every conference, we will select a group of experts. We have them go on a mission, which is to go to the temple, and I can allow Yuan Xi to go with them. But Luo XiaoLou, you can’t go.”
Yuan Xi suddenly spoke out, “No, he must follow me.”
The smile on the second prince’s face disappeared, “Then do you know why we pay in advance for those who go on missions, whether they succeed or not? Because if they fail, they will never be able to come out of there, and not once have they succeeded since before. In other words, none of them came out.”
Luo XiaoLou and Yuan Xi looked at each other, and Yuan Xi asked, “What does it mean when the Second Prince tells us explicitly about such things?”
The second prince smiled and said seriously, “This matter has been kept extremely secret since the beginning, after all, the lives of countless experts are at stake. But this time, I will also be going, so we’ll die together. Since the two of you are so eager to go in, you shouldn’t go out and talk nonsense, right?”
Luo XiaoLou stared into the Second Prince’s eyes, gripped Yuan Xi’s hand hard and said, “Of course, and if Yuan Xi wants to go, I must go too, or the deal won’t work.”
The second prince frowned at Luo XiaoLou. He was not powerful in ancient martial arts and was an expert weapons master, it was pointless to go in. If he failed he would lose a senior weapons master, but…
“Okay, I promise you.”
