When Tian Li and Yates finished testing the levels and data of the mecha, they were completely dumbfounded, a Tier 5 mecha that had levels equivalent to the highest Tier 7 mecha! Of course, the two of them don’t know that although this was the best mecha Luo XiaoLou could make at this stage, he was actually not particularly satisfied with his first bio-mecha.
The Tier 5 mecha he made was only one step higher than a Tier 7 intermediate mecha that Master Maku had achieved with a Tier 3 mecha, which showed that his level of biogenetic fusion was not as good as Master Maku’s. However, the first time he made a bio-mecha, he had no idea that it was the best mecha he could get his hands on.
Besides, this was his first time making a biological mecha, and Master Maku was a master who had been involved in this field for many years, so he was not too frustrated by it. And by making the bio-mecha for Tian Li first, at least his worries and anxieties could be dispelled as soon as possible.
Tian Li laughed uproariously for half a day, hugging the huge mecha’s lap, until Yates reluctantly patted him awake and Tian Li finally came to his senses and calmed down.
Tian Li looked up at the behemoth of a mecha and turned to ask seriously, “Yates, how do you think I should train as a mecha warrior if I don’t have the basic skills to be a mecha warrior?” With some anxiety and trepidation in his eyes, he was sure he couldn’t pay for such a high-level mecha.
He did his best, but the only basic training for mecha he had done was on virtual networks and in games, with zero practical experience.
Yates smiled and said, “You’ve finally thought of the problem.”
Tian Li nodded vigorously and looked at Yates with anticipation.
After a couple seconds, Yates instructed, “First of all, the secret of this mecha cannot be exposed, at least not before Luo XiaoLou announces it.”
“So?” Tian Li gulped and asked.
“So, you have to choose to practice at a mecha club, far away from here, or you can change your appearance,” Yates said.
“No problem! I’ll find the best school to enroll in tomorrow!” Tian Li patted his chest and said.
“And then there’s the fact that I’m going with you, just to mentor you and to train with you” Yates said with a smile, while gazing at the Tier 5 bio-mecha with a hint of eagerness in his eyes.
“Hey, I’ll help you sign up with me too, and we’ll call it the cost of hiring a trainer.” Tian Li was so excited, even though the registration would not be cheap. He had more smiles on his face today than he had in the past six months combined.
“And my father will be even more excited than he was when he found out that he would have the opportunity to drive a mecha, because, man, who wouldn’t want to be a mecha fighter?”
Manager Gao touched the obscure letter L on the mecha, then left to arrange Planet Anse’s affairs, before personally taking the mecha to the Imperial Capital, who also wanted him back.
Luo XiaoLou and Yuan Xi arrived at the Imperial Capital on the fastest ship. Yuan Nuo was looking forward to their return. In the past few days, Yuan Che had used all his time to practice with him, saying that he was doing recovery training. God knows, his oldest cousin didn’t need any recovery training at all. For him, the seal was to just open his eyes.
The people who came back with his oldest cousin seemed to be all ancient martial arts fanatics, practicing every day in the training hall and fighting against each other. The most terrifying thing was that he, who had never had any challenges, couldn’t beat those people!
When he saw Yuan Xi and Luo XiaoLou return, Yuan Nuo felt deeply relieved.
Luo XiaoLou was stunned when he realized that Yuan Nuo, a kid who always liked to make faces at him, had actually given him a smile. Of course, the smile was mainly for Yuan Xi, because the next thing he knew, Yuan Nuo was whispering to Yuan Xi.
As the two of them had returned, that evening, at the dinner at the palace, the family gathered together, and Yuan Lie had a smile on his face.
Yuan Che looked at Yuan Lie at the head of the table and said, “Father, the situation is tense, so let’s wait a while before we look into that matter.”
Yuan Lie’s face became serious, and his eyes even had a terrifying chill in them, “Don’t worry about this matter.”
As Luo XiaoLou was eating, his hands shook and his legs suddenly got hot.
Luo XiaoLou suppressed the shock from the bottom of his heart, and looked at Yuan Xi’s cold face. With undisguised concern in his eyes, his heart warmed up, and he nodded his head gently to Yuan Xi.
Yuan Nuo then asked, “Older Cousin, why do those people insist on calling you Creator God? Although you stopped it, they still call you that in private.”
Luo XiaoLou’s ears perked up when he heard this, curious about the question and wanting to know more about the owner of 125.
Yuan Che smiled slightly and looked at Yuan Nuo, “That’s not the only question you want to ask?”
At this point, Yuan Che’s expression grew serious, but Feng JiaLing’s brow furrowed, and Yuan Che looked at him with a questioning expression. “I was badly wounded in the war with the exotic beasts. I persisted in returning to the fort, however I didn’t last long enough to go all the way and passed out. I thought that I was safe and there would be no more danger. When I woke up, I found that I was no longer at the place where I had fainted. I didn’t see anyone and I was placed in a medical cabin. I could feel that it was not for healing purposes, but only served the function of preservation.”
Yuan Che said this so gently that Luo XiaoLou almost cried, and Yuan Xi gripped his hand fiercely. Yuan Lie’s face was dark, and although the expression on Feng JiaLing’s face remained the same, everyone could feel the chill that was almost materializing.
Medical cabin? Who dared to experiment on the great prince of the empire?
Yuan Nuo blurted out, “Older Cousin-“
Yuan Che gave Yuan Nuo a reassuring glance and continued, “I had no energy inside. I always wanted to sleep, and could only barely stay awake. Later, after several dozen hours or so, the medical cabin was loaded into an alloy box and sent outside. The people outside probably didn’t think I was still conscious, but they were talking next to me and I heard a few words intermittently.”
“Several people at the table stared at me,” Yuan Che narrowed his eyes and said, “I heard the words, Flesh and Blood, Spiritual Power and Source of Consciousness, and that they had to send me there quickly, but I didn’t understand what they meant. Then, the ship suddenly began to shake violently, and it was obvious that something had happened, and those people panicked, set a course and left the ship. Soon after, something apparently boarded the ship, and it was two opposing sides, and they were fighting. Later, during the fight, they destroyed the alloy box containing my medical cabin, which was exposed, but because of the material, it was not damaged.”
When Yuan Che said this, his eyes suddenly wandered, as if he was recalling something.
“When they saw me, they were shocked and ran towards me. They fought over the medical cabin and finally the cabin was broken and I was snatched away by one of them.”
Yuan Nuo asked hesitantly, “What did they – what did they want? It was not a rescue, was it?”
“Of course not,” Yuan Che said coldly.
Rescue? The truth was far from beautiful. They just wanted what was in him – the man himself told him later.
“After I was released, the ship fell into a gray hole. The three of us fell in, and then I realized that was the route it had been set on. The other one disappeared after entering the gray hole, which was a very harsh environment with very few people. And there was a cosmic hole, always in danger of being destroyed.
“I was stunned and froze – I was just shocked! I actually lived with an exotic beast for a long time. Then, he was seriously injured and by the time I woke again it was too late. Later, when the monster came up and the situation was no longer solvable, he sealed me up.”
Yuan Che said with cold eyes, “When I woke up again, Yuan Xi was there, the exotic beast was long gone, and the cosmic void had been sealed. When I went out again, the people outside called me the Creator God, probably thinking that I had stopped the disaster that destroyed the gray hole for them…”
Luo XiaoLou was stunned that this was actually the case! It seems that he and Yuan Xi were not really guilty of anything – at least someone had already worked with the exotic beast.
And 125 was tearfully hugging Luo XiaoLou’s little legs. His master was so powerful, so wise, so great!
Yuan Lie touched Yuan Che’s head and said with a heavy face, “Don’t think about it. It’s good that you’re fine. I will definitely find the person who took you and the exotic beast.”
Luo XiaoLou looked at Yuan Che, who didn’t say a word about the exotic beast that had once joined forces with him, but merely raised the corners of his mouth. And, soon enough, Yuan Che met Luo XiaoLou’s gaze and gave him a meaningful look.
Luo XiaoLou immediately averted his eyes, and did not feel calm until he was dragged back to his room by Yuan Xi.
The exotic beast was undoubtedly the owner of 125, and why he had snatched Yuan Che was still a mystery. While the seal, to put it in a better light, seemed to be a form of protection, if he could leave, why didn’t he take Yuan Che with him? Maybe, the owner of 125 had…
Luo XiaoLou stopped this desperate thought. On the bright side, 125’s owner was a high-class exotic beast who was most likely still alive, even a thousand years later.
Just where was he, anyway?
Yuan Xi seemed to sense Luo XiaoLou’s panic and held him tightly throughout the night.
The next day, when Luo XiaoLou woke up, Yuan Xi was washing his hands when a white bird flew to the window and pecked at it. Luo XiaoLou immediately thought of the white bird and shuddered as 125 rushed over to the white bird and took something off it.
“It’s Cyril, telling you to find a way to come out and meet…”
