After Luo ShaoTian saw Luo XiaoLou, he also froze for a moment, and then walked towards him.
Luo XiaoLou found out that the person who won his gloves and bought his mecha was actually Luo ShaoTian, he had a strange feeling in his heart. He awkwardly squeezed the mask in his hand. He hadn’t had time to put it on.
“Hi, you’re here at the Imperial Capital? What a coincidence.” Luo XiaoLou pretended to greet him naturally as he glanced at the man who had come with Luo ShaoTian.
Luo XiaoLou’s face changed again and he immediately took a step back, it was Luo ChengYun.
Since that nightmare, Luo XiaoLou instinctively feared Luo ChengYun. Whenever he saw him, fear that was soul-deep would wrap around him like a snake. Most of the time, Luo XiaoLou did not even want to think about that name.
At this moment, Luo ShaoTian had taken a few steps toward Luo XiaoLou, and frowned at his pale face. He asked, “The military department summoned us. Why are you here? What happened to you?”
At the same time, Luo ChengYun, who had his head down, looked toward them.
Luo XiaoLou’s pupils shrank to pinpoints but soon returned to normal as relief flooded him. He slightly smiled at Luo ShaoJun, who he had just misidentified as his father. Luo ShaoJun similarly gave Luo XiaoLou a slight smile back, but with a sense of distance and wariness inside.
“No, nothing, I just came over to buy some things.” Luo XiaoLou stammered, internally thanking God that he didn’t have to face that man.
Luo ShaoTian looked behind him thoughtfully and asked again, “Did you come out alone?”
“How is it possible? There is always a group of people following behind lately. In fact, it can be completely reduced by half. This is simply a waste of manpower and resources,” Luo XiaoLou complained in a small voice.
Hearing this, Luo ShaoTian closed his mouth, and was silent for a couple seconds, before he suddenly threw something into Luo XiaoLou’s arms. Then while turning to walk away, he murmured, “Just bought, and not much use. Here you are.” This attitude was like casually throwing Luo XiaoLou a radish, not a pair of gloves worth thirty-five million.
Nothing useful …… If those mecha makers who had scrambled for them during the bid heard this sentence, they would spit blood.
The corners of Luo XiaoLou’s mouth twitched as he stared at the gloves in his hand. He was excited and surprised, but also felt a little tangled. The gloves were in his hands in the end, but when he thought of the money he didn’t have to spend, he felt the pain again.
Luo ShaoJun’s face also began trembling. Luo ShaoTian had heard the sky silk gloves may appear at this auction and had dragged him to it. Originally he thought Luo ShaoTian finally found his mecha maker, but now it seemed that they were actually for Luo XiaoLou.
Luo XiaoLou did not say words of thanks, he just touched the pair of gloves and gazed at Luo ShaoTian who was walking away. Slowly, that figure overlapped with another figure dressed in formal wear, always following his father in his previous life.
He had always been reluctant to call him brother, and the love he felt would paralyze his face – in short, that boy was really not very cute, except for helping his father to give him money in a timely manner.
Well, speaking of which, he and Luo ShaoTian were also brothers, brothers by blood.
When this thought came to Luo XiaoLou’s mind, he looked at Luo ShaoTian with even more affection and nostalgia in his eyes.
It seemed good to have such a brother.
Luo XiaoLou walked out with a smile and it seemed weird to 125’s eyes.
It wasn’t until after getting into the car that 125 couldn’t help but say, “Hey, you’ve changed your feelings about him. What does that mean?”
Luo XiaoLou glanced at 125 and stated while trying on the gloves, “Mn, I think you would probably have a hard time understanding the meaning of the words ‘brotherly love’.”
125 blushed and shouted, “Of course I understand! But you guys obviously don’t fit that definition. Don’t you get lectured by Luo ShaoTian? Or occasionally even beaten up? Doesn’t he give you restrictive rules and regulations and force a whole lot of incomprehensible stuff if you don’t pass? And tell you to shut down when he gets bored?”
Luo XiaoLou stared at 125, dumbfounded, and finally stifled a laugh. If he laughed out loud, 125 would storm out. He soothed, “Honey, your previous definition of brotherhood was fantastic. But you can tell that your brother really has a lot of heart.”
“I don’t think it was for my own good at all, it was just strictly programmed to train me,” 125 muttered under his breath.
“But even so, you still want to find him don’t you? That’s what brothers are for.” Luo XiaoLou warmly said.
125 gazed at Luo XiaoLou with little understanding, and it decided to give up this argument. This kind of illogical definition was probably unique to affectionate humans.
Luo XiaoLou began to try to activate the Source of Consciousness force with the hand wearing the glove, and a white beam of light that could be seen with the naked eye appeared on Luo XiaoLou’s hand. Luo XiaoLou was dumbfounded, and even 125 next to him let out a cry of surprise.
“Goodness, the bonus boost of these gloves seems far from being the slight boost as it was introduced during the auction. This is almost double your usual Source of Consciousness power!” 125 exclaimed.
Luo XiaoLou withdrew the Source of Consciousness force and tried again twice, and it turned out that it was not a coincidence that the concentration of Source of Consciousness force on Luo XiaoLou’s hand reached an unprecedented height.
Surprised, Luo XiaoLou immediately took out the box.
In the passenger seat in front, a serious-faced man in black glanced back and asked the person driving the hover car in a whisper, “What is Prince Consort doing?”
The driver glanced at the man beside him in surprise and said calmly, “Our mission is only to ensure the safety of His Highness.”
“But those gloves were bought by someone else and given to His Highness. Does this need to be reported to His Royal Highness?” Mr. Bodyguard was struggling with whether this issue would affect the happiness of the two.
“You can report this issue to our superior Rod, and let him make the difficult, er, I mean decision,” The driver suggested calmly.
The bodyguard gazed at the driver in surprise, “…Good idea!”
Luo XiaoLou and 125 leaned back in their respective seats in frustration, “Looks like a trip to Rover Star is a must. The Source of Consciousness force needed to open this box is too scary.”
“Not bad for the master to leave behind,” 125 took the opportunity to brag.
After returning that evening, Luo XiaoLou wandered around the room for half a day. He was torn about how to tell Yuan Xi such a big thing. He could not hide it, moreover, he already hated the feeling of being scared from the thought of hiding it.
Finally, Luo XiaoLou ran to the kitchen, and cooked a sumptuous dinner under the surprised expressions of the servants.
More and more people passed by the kitchen door. Everyone would stare inside for a few moments and then leave with a smile. Mr. Butler even came over himself and asked Luo XiaoLou with a smile if he needed any help.
Of course Luo XiaoLou didn’t need it. He didn’t need to cook like a chef in a five-star restaurant. As long as it was edible, he had learned in the past, Yuan Xi would be very receptive, despite his fussy mouth.
In fact, when they lived together, he never had to worry about leftover food.
At 8 p.m., Luo XiaoLou sat down at the table, and Yuan Xi, who had already returned, sat next to him.
Everything went according to plan, except that their dinner for two turned into a family gathering. When dinner time came, those who had said they would not come back for dinner seemed to have suddenly appeared from all corners.
For this reason, Luo XiaoLou had to make another trip to the kitchen.
The only consolation was that everyone seemed to be as receptive as Yuan Xi, and there was nothing left on the table. His Majesty Yuan Lie had similar taste as Yuan Xi, so the plate of fish was finished in no time.
During the course of the meal, Yuan Lie was staring at Feng JiaLing with a fiery look on his face as he served him food.
When the two left, Feng JiaLing gave Luo XiaoLou a faint smile and praised, “Not bad.”
Yuan Lie, on the other hand, sent a glance and reluctantly declared, “It’s not as good as Ling’s cooking, but it’s not bad.”
Only when the two had gone did Yuan Che smile and look at Luo XiaoLou, a hint of happiness in his black eyes, “It was good. In fact, they all liked it.”
Yuan Xi finally led Luo XiaoLou out of the dining room, the corners of his mouth slightly curled although he still had his customary stern face.
After entering their bedroom, Yuan Xi said, “Although it’s only right that you cook for me, you’ve been busy lately, right? In the future, you might as well take the opportunity to rest for a while. Your waist has become too thin recently…” Yuan Xi wrapped his arm around Luo XiaoLou, pinching the flesh and not too satisfied. He hadn’t been able to raise Luo XiaoLou well in the grey hole.
“Mn, it actually doesn’t take much time.” Luo XiaoLou hugged Yuan Xi back, looked at the bathroom and whispered, “You look much more tired than me lately, do you want to take a bath? I can also help you with a massage or something.”
The original plan had been to go to the study again, but Yuan Xi gazed at Luo XiaoLou, blushing in his arms, and turned firmly toward the bathroom.
A moment later, Yuan Xi came out of the bathroom again and threw a chain with a blue stone on it into a side cabinet.
After a long time, Luo XiaoLou lay limp on the bed, with Yuan Xi cuddling him contentedly, like a well-fed cat, just a few purrs away.
Luo XiaoLou raised his head, looked into Yuan Xi’s dark crystal eyes and whispered, “Honey, I want to talk to you about something.”
Luo XiaoLou quickly and simply explained what he wanted, and Yuan Xi’s face became too dark to be black.
According to his temper, he would not spare Luo XiaoLou, but, after the tender feelings just now, it was a little difficult for him to get angry or do domestic violence – in fact, his hands that were now wrapped around Luo XiaoLou’s body were not quite willing to move.
“I said you were not allowed to contact them again,” Yuan Xi growled angrily.
“I didn’t. They were the ones who came to me for help. Don’t worry, if I provide them with weapons, I will make a deal with them. The beasts are the only ones cooperating now, not the exotic beast you’ve always hated. Yuan Xi, I told you, the exotic beasts are not the culprit. There is another force, and the one targeting the beast planet right now is probably the third party force. Do you think the third party will let humans go after exterminating the beasts? You have also told me that the border is now very tense and a big war will break out at any time.”
Luo XiaoLou looked at Yuan Xi, whose face still did not look too good, and murmured softly, “Also, I need the source fruit. I must open that box. It’s about my life.”
Yuan Xi glared hard at Luo XiaoLou, finally grunted and agreed, “After half a month, I will free up a week of time. However, about the weapon you mentioned, you have to give me a copy of the weapon you make and the design.”
“Of course! Don’t forget, I’m your mecha maker,” Luo XiaoLou laughed.
Luo XiaoLou was satisfied that, for whatever reason, Yuan Xi had at least promised to let him go in search of the source fruit.
The next day, another exciting piece of news quickly spread throughout the empire.
Their Highness Prince Consort had made a Fifth Tier mecha with the stats of a Sixth Tier Top Rank, and the mecha had been auctioned off at Heavenly Winter’s auction for a whopping half a billion.
There were many masters who could make a sixth tier mecha, but at Prince Consort’s age, those who could do so were hard to find. This could only mean one thing: Their Highness Prince Consort could be called a genius.
As for the Federation, the media who were clamoring for Luo XiaoLou to come out and compete with Prince Yupo instantly disappeared and never came out again.
The Imperials, who had been made to feel angry by the Federation, suddenly felt that they could proudly raise their eyebrows. Their Prince Consort could make a fifth tier mecha, and this mecha performed better than even a sixth tier mecha. Their Prince Consort won this challenge without a fight.
Lieutenant General Hatton of the Ministry of War threw another tantrum, and then began to consider talking to His Royal Highness.
Luo XiaoLou did not pay attention to the news, as he was busy with another matter. Before leaving to look for the source fruit, he planned to try creating a level six bio-mecha. Of course, if there was time, it would be better to make a Tier Seven and Eight mecha.
A Level Eight bio-mecha, even in a dangerous battle, could play a vital role.
