Luo XiaoLou stared dumbfoundedly at 125.
How dare you? Now you dare to rob someone? Isn’t it obvious that this was Feng JiaLing and Yuan Lie’s son?
Before Yuan Xi’s face darkened and he threw 125 away, Luo XiaoLou quickly pulled back 125, which was covered in crystals, and casually advised, “Well, you see, you’re definitely mistaken. According to genetics, your chances of winning are zero-“
Yuan Xi turned around angrily, not at all sparing 125, intending to make 125 feel deeply that from all accounts its argumentative possibilities were zero.
“Wait, wait! It’s a misunderstanding! I’m just talking about the crystal that was left by my master! I didn’t see anyone inside. I- I just saw the seal …” 125 screamed as he pounced, taking a few steps to leap onto Luo XiaoLou’s bosom.
Luo XiaoLou’s mouth twitched. How dare you say you didn’t see someone that big?
Yuan Xi’s hands itched even more as he looked at where 125 was staying. Luo XiaoLou didn’t understand Yuan Xi’s mental activity, but felt that it was stupid for 125 to show his tail to someone like that, and simply pulled 125 onto his shoulder.
Yuan Xi stared coldly at 125, narrowed his eyes, and said, “You mean, my brother is trapped here, and your master did it?” Anger permeated the handsome, perfect face.
125, sensitive to the danger, slowly moved fully behind Luo XiaoLou, with only two paws and the big head showing, uttering, “I… I don’t know…”
Luo XiaoLou only felt a flash before his eyes, then 125 was already in Yuan Xi’s hands, and the master and servant were now no match for Yuan Xi at all.
“-Oh! Don’t- don’t fight! I’ll say!”
125’s four paws, head and tail kept in a draped position, answered in frustration, “Yes, this crystal was left behind by my master. Owwww! It hurts like hell! But it’s something you can open!”
Luo XiaoLou snatched the sagging 125 from Yuan Xi’s hand. Although it’s not much use most of the time, it was even less useful when anyone hit the fool, “Come on, look. It also says you can open it. How do I open it?” Luo XiaoLou’s last sentence was turned to 125.
125 looked lovingly at the crystal and said, “Luo XiaoLou will be able to open it, using the Source of Consciousness force. But if you open it, you have to quickly replace him with the energy body you brought in. This is the place where the entire cavity is sealed…”
“What happens when you open the seal?” Luo XiaoLou frowned and asked, while looking at Yuan Che who was sleeping quietly in the crystal. Why did the owner of 125 seal Yuan Che here?
“Scary stuff. As you should have sensed, there’s something here that inhibits the presence of the exotic beast gene, and that thing is even scarier than cosmic rays.” 125 whispered, “I don’t think that thing is necessarily harmless to humans, otherwise, those people wouldn’t have sealed it.”
Luo XiaoLou felt a little creeped out from the way Yuan Xi was staring at him too, as if Yuan Xi’s hatred for the exotic beast had come back to haunt him.
Luo XiaoLou sighed inwardly and stated, “Anyway, let’s save people first.”
Yuan Xi averted his eyes and looked at Yuan Che in the crystal again and gave a cold, “Mn.”
125 looked at Luo XiaoLou worriedly, and wondered if Luo XiaoLou would be able to open the seal left by its master, depending on the amount of Luo XiaoLou’s Source of Consciousness power.
Luo XiaoLou stood in front of the crystal, looked up at it, chose the right angle, and then released the Source of Consciousness power. In that instant, Luo XiaoLou was aware of a dull noise coming from beneath the ice.
But it was such a small sound, and with Yuan Xi staring coldly at him, Luo XiaoLou ended up focusing his energy on unsealing it.
Yuan Xi heard it too, but right now he couldn’t care less about anything but his brother. Besides, Yuan Xi didn’t think he was in danger, much less that he couldn’t protect the one and a half people around him.
Luo XiaoLou used the Source of Consciousness power to start touching the crystals closest to the person, then tried cutting, but found it had no effect at all.
He frowned, since 125 said using his Source of Consciousness power was okay, then there shouldn’t be any issues. This situation could only mean that his Source of Consciousness power was too weak.
Luo XiaoLou began to increase the Source of Consciousness power until it increased to a strength he had never used before, before the crystal cracked.
As expected of a 125 owner, this was too powerful. Luo XiaoLou was relieved and began to cut the crystal with this strength.
Yuan Xi looked at Luo XiaoLou, who was sweating profusely, and reached out his hand but then withdrew it.
Half an hour later, Luo XiaoLou slowly lowered his hand. He felt like he was going to faint! His Source of Consciousness power was almost completely consumed.
At this moment, a crystal directly in front of Luo XiaoLou suddenly fell down and landed on the stone platform, making a loud noise, but it didn’t shatter.
Luo XiaoLou was yanked back a few steps by Yuan Xi, dodging the falling crystal, after which neither of them looked at the crystal, the two of them stared intently at the one that was revealed.
Yuan Che slowly opened his eyes, as Yuan Xi watched without looking away. His grip on Luo XiaoLou tightened, and then he involuntarily shouted, “Brother!”
Yuan Che looked up. Luo XiaoLou and Yuan Xi were thrilled he was alive. That’s the best thing that can happen!
Before Yuan Xi could step forward to get the person out, Yuan Che jumped out of it with one hand on the break. The movement was as light and swift as Yuan Xi’s.
Immediately afterwards, a sharp sword pointed at Luo XiaoLou, and Yuan Che spoke icily and slowly, “You’re still alive?”
Luo XiaoLou was startled, but Yuan Xi quickly blocked Yuan Che’s way, “Brother, what are you doing? Are you – all right?”
Yuan Che focused on Yuan Xi, and after a few seconds, he asked, “You’re Xi’er?”
Yuan Xi immediately nodded and said with a rare bit of excitement, “It’s me, Brother, you’re still alive! I know Father and Mother will be very happy-“
Yuan Che looked at Yuan Xi for a moment, his phoenix eyes, which looked exactly like Feng JiaLing’s, narrowed, “What’s behind you is an exotic beast, right?”
Yuan Xi looked at Yuan Che at a loss for words. It was the first time Luo XiaoLou had ever seen such an expression on his face. Yuan Xi quickly and guiltily said, “Brother, he- he does have exotic beast blood, but he is also half human. I take responsibility!” Yuan Xi’s words had become righteous by the end of the sentence.
Yuan Che lifted the corners of his mouth and lightly smiled, “Responsible? You like him, don’t you?”
Luo XiaoLou saw from behind that Yuan Xi’s ears were rapidly turning red. And, in a very rare occurrence, Yuan Xi, who had been so proudly emphasizing that it was Luo XiaoLou who was dead set on him, didn’t even make a retort.
Yuan Che looked past Yuan Xi to Luo XiaoLou.
Luo XiaoLou squeezed out a smile and awkwardly greeted, “Big Brother.”
Yuan Che narrowed his eyes at Luo XiaoLou and mumbled, “On your body, you have his scent.”
After saying that, Yuan Che suddenly fell down. Yuan Xi swiftly moved to hold him, and the moment Yuan Che closed his eyes, he urged Yuan Xi, “Quickly, get out of here….”
Yuan Xi stared blankly at Yuan Che and reached out to touch Yuan Che’s heart. 125 also ran over and placed his paw on Yuan Che and quickly said, “He’s fine, he’s just been sealed for so long, he needs to rest, repair and heal.”
Yuan Xi was relieved. Then he handed Yuan Che over to Luo XiaoLou behind him, took out the not-so-small energy body and placed it into the cavity Luo XiaoLou had opened.
A dazzling light emitted from the crystals, and in the blink of an eye, the ice and snow melted. The shells of the statues actually melted slowly, revealing the people inside, who all fell straight down.
Luo XiaoLou frowned again when he detected the ice layer below. The thickness of the ice had increased.
125, on the other hand, shouted in surprise, “We’ve made a fortune…”
The huge steps, after the ice and snow were melted away, were actually filled with energy stones.
“Quick, get out of here first.” Luo XiaoLou strongly endured his anxiety and urged.
Yuan Xi carried Yuan Che on his back and hugged Luo XiaoLou. 125 seeing this, immediately grabbed Luo XiaoLou’s other hand. Yuan Xi jumped onto the stairs and then quickly went up. There were people lying all over the ground, and it couldn’t be seen if they were dead or alive.
When they were almost at the door, the Gate of Miracles suddenly opened. Both of them were stunned, Luo XiaoLou looked up and shouted, “Come in and save the people-“
His words came to an abrupt halt when he saw the person in the doorway.
Standing in the doorway was a man in grey, and behind him was a fallen guard.
