While he was eating dinner, Luo XiaoLou noticed that Yuan Xi was obviously a bit excited. The corners of his mouth were slightly curled, and he even secretly shook his hand twice under the table. So happy. Had the military department been deployed recently?
Yuan Che smiled, looked at Luo XiaoLou and said, “It’s rare to have a mecha maker in the family. Recently the ancient martial arts guard team is talking about you every day. They also cornered me to inquire about the good things you gave them?”
Luo XiaoLou paused, then laughed. “Mn, there is a little girl there we met in the Gray Hole. She took care of me and Yuan Xi. But because she isn’t a high enough genetic rank, and has no way to train, I gave her a bio-mecha.”
Yuan Che smiled, “So that’s what happened. Those people are in very good physical condition, and I’m considering having them form a special mecha team to protect the safety of the family. You can help them. However, Yuan Xi stressed to me that you are very busy lately, so I said hello to the military department. They will send their assistants over. Just tell them whatever you need.”
Yuan Xi nodded approvingly, the special mecha retainers were a good idea. He glanced at Luo XiaoLou, who had the lowest force value in the original family.
Dinner was over, Yuan Xi carried Luo XiaoLou back to their room. Yuan Che wanted to talk, but shook his head, smiled and turned away. It wasn’t the time to disturb a newlywed couple.
“Wait, what exactly is your hurry?!” Luo XiaoLou barely kept up with Yuan Xi’s steps, and was shouting in exasperation.
While the underlings on both sides of the corridor all had a very understanding and comprehensible look on their faces.
Yuan Xi took Luo XiaoLou into their room in one breath, then closed the door sharply and pushed Luo XiaoLou onto the bed.
“Hey, we haven’t even washed up yet. Although we haven’t done it for the past few days, you don’t have to be in such a hurry-“
“Shut up!” Yuan Xi interrupted the chattering Luo XiaoLou. He eyed him and even ran his fingers through his hair, this kind of expression of difficult love was too rarely seen on the domineering Yuan Xi, so Luo XiaoLou was dumbfounded.
After he glared at Luo XiaoLou twice, Yuan Xi no longer hesitated to take out a rectangular box from his space button. The box was less than half a meter and looked unassuming, but Yuan Xi’s careful actions made it clear to Luo XiaoLou that it wasn’t.
The box was opened and Luo XiaoLou came closer to take a look. It was a black dagger. At first glance, the material was the same as the weapon on Yuan Xi’s mecha, and, if he remembered correctly, Yuan Xi also had a sword of the same material that Luo XiaoLou had transformed into an energy sword.
“A dagger? The look isn’t quite perfect, and this side is a bit fat.” Luo XiaoLou was looking at the not-so-regular dagger inside the box, while he took out a professional’s tone of voice to comment.
Yuan Xi’s fist clenched, and his veins stood out. Luo XiaoLou smartly shrank back. This, this was…what happened? Did he say something wrong? Yuan Xi had gone a long time without domestic violence.
“What do you know? Is there something wrong with it? You tell me!” Yuan Xi was like a completely hackled cat.
“No. I…I misread it. It was a misunderstanding! How beautiful it is, no matter the shape or sharpness-“
Yuan Xi gave Luo XiaoLou a fierce glare, then raised his chin and said, “You aren’t qualified to pick and choose. It’s your honor to get a dagger that I personally polished.”
Luo XiaoLou opened his mouth wide and looked at the dagger for several seconds before he said, “You mean, you polished and made this for me, personally?”
Yuan Xi hummed, “Of course. It’s not like that, you should feel grateful and proud-” Not every husband spoiled his partner like this.
Luo XiaoLou laughed in surprise, then he jumped over and hugged Yuan Xi. He kissed him several times in spite of the latter’s foul expression before he said, “Honey, I’m so happy. I love this gift so much!”
When he thought of a domineering and arrogant person like Yuan Xi, taking time out of his busy schedule to polish a dagger for him by hand, Luo XiaoLou felt a warmth that flowed through his heart, and even some nervousness. The fact that he sent Yuan Xi a mecha didn’t feel at all odd, as if it was a matter of course.
Luo XiaoLou’s body trembled a bit with excitement. The surprise seemed far more than that.
Yuan Xi justifiably enjoyed Luo XiaoLou’s unusually active embrace and sweet kiss before he said, “Look at this dagger. I specifically went to Dees to ask for the design. It’s polished similarly to the energy sword. Now just put an energy stone in to activate it, and it can be used.” The complex structure was really a bit difficult for him, but after he wasted a lot of materials, he managed to make one.
Luo XiaoLou looked at the dagger in his hand in amazement. There was indeed a groove for the energy stone, except that it hadn’t been hammered with the Source of Consciousness, so it was a standard energy dagger.
However, for a complete amateur, Luo XiaoLou knew how hard it was to make it.
“And, I adjusted the dagger to the size of your hand, so try it out.” Yuan Xi said, as he handed the dagger to Luo XiaoLou.
Luo XiaoLou gripped it. “It fits really well. It feels comfortable in my hand.” Luo XiaoLou looked at the dagger in his hand and giggled for half a day. Then he looked up and said to Yuan Xi, “Honey, this is the most perfect energy dagger I’ve ever seen.”
Yuan Xi’s face suddenly turned red, and he said fiercely, “Humph, it’s useless for you to compliment me on purpose. You just said it wasn’t pretty. See how I’ll fix you later!”
Yuan Xi pulled the dagger out of Luo XiaoLou’s hand and put it on the bed, then carried Luo XiaoLou to the bathroom.
After being cleaned up properly and carefully, Luo XiaoLou was brought out by Yuan Xi with a flushed face. The two went to bed, and Yuan Xi contentedly rolled him into his arms as the lights slowly dimmed.
Before he went to sleep, Luo XiaoLou thought dazedly that Yuan Xi had helped him to wake up. Since it was difficult to upgrade mecha anymore, he could add energy stones to the attack weapons.
The next day, Luo XiaoLou arrived at the studio, and sure enough, in addition to Ivan and Dees, there were two people from the military department, both in their thirties, with the rank of Lieutenant Colonel. Both of them saluted Luo XiaoLou respectfully. They belonged to the R&D department of mecha, and respected Luo XiaoLou more than others.
Luo XiaoLou greeted the two men and said with a smile, “I’m so grateful that you two are here to help.”
“We can’t help you much. After all, the military department has only studied your bio-mecha theory for a little while,” the two men immediately said. “However, it is still possible to help you with materials and make parts.”
“What is the highest level of mecha parts you can make?” Luo XiaoLou asked after he thought about it.
The two officers looked at each other, and one of them said, “Grade 7 is possible, but only barely, and the success rate is very small. For Grade 6, there isn’t too much of a problem.”
Luo XiaoLou nodded and was about to speak, when there was a sudden knock on the door outside.
Ivan saw Luo XiaoLou nod, ran over and opened the door, then the child froze. At the door was Ino in a sharp uniform, shouldering an energy sword. He carried Ivan to the side with one hand and walked inside. Ino looked around the room, and smiled slightly, “You’ve got quite a crowd here. Hi, Dees, you’re here too.”
Luo XiaoLou also smiled, “I heard you guys are training. Why are you free to come over today?”
Ino cocked his head and opened the door. “I’ve got my eye on Xiao Qiao’s mecha. Get me one. I find that hers is much better than the one I use. I can pay for it, but I haven’t been paid recently.”
The room, except Luo XiaoLou and Dees, all laughed. This guy had no money, but wanted a high-tier mecha. Dees and Luo XiaoLou, however, both understood that Ino saw the mecha as an energy sword. He wouldn’t believe that he couldn’t afford an energy sword. He would pay sooner or later.
“Okay.” Luo XiaoLou said without hesitation. Even without Yuan Che’s remarks, he and Ino had gotten along for a while, not to mention he didn’t have to be in charge of the materials right now. “But I don’t have time lately, I’ll probably give it to you after I get back from LuoFu Star. Oh yes, you two, I would like to ask you to help me make a batch of Tier 6 mecha parts, about twenty sets or so.”
“Thanks a lot then.” Ino smiled and was about to leave when he suddenly turned around again and asked, “Do you want the energy stones? I have just as much as there.” Before he left the Yi family, this second master didn’t bring any less energy stones.
Luo XiaoLou froze, and then smiled. “To be honest, those are quite useful for me.”
“Then, I’ll bring them all to you. I have no reason for keeping them anyway. But there are a few high grade ones. I’d like you to help me make two energy swords and keep them for fun. From what Dees said, you’re very good at that too.” Ino said.
“No problem.” Luo XiaoLou really valued energy stones, which were rare things that could replenish and grow Spiritual Power and Source of Consciousness.
Although the growth was slow, it was exceptionally convenient for replenishment. Like carrying an energy charger at all times.
Even if 125 thought it was a lot of storage, for such a good thing, he wouldn’t be too much.
The two officers said to Luo XiaoLou, “The task you set us with, the two of us are afraid that it will take too long. We’ll go back to the military department, where there are many people, and send you over the sets in seven days.”
Luo XiaoLou nodded. Next, he wanted to use these days to make a few Tier 7 mecha, for Yuan Xi and Luo ShaoTian and Arthur, however, because the time was too short, he might need Shen Yuan’s help.
Luo XiaoLou gave Ivan and Dees what they were going to learn that day, then contacted Shen Yuan, who immediately agreed to come.
Luo XiaoLou began to think about another thing. He knew most of Yuan Xi’s movements and combat habits, and it was easy to get Yuan Xi’s combat videos, but what about Luo ShaoTian’s?
