Luo XiaoLou thought about it, but wasn’t able find a good way, so he planned to just speak directly to Luo ShaoTian. Even if it wasn’t a surprise, Luo XiaoLou believed he was willing to accept it, otherwise he wouldn’t have bought that Tier 5 mecha. But before that, it was better to find the mecha training room. Luo XiaoLou took advantage of the noon break and headed out to walk to the training ground behind the palace.
Luo XiaoLou intended to book a mecha training room, but when he got to the control room, he saw Yuan Che was walking towards him, his hair still wet from the shower he had just taken after training.
Yuan Che was also stunned when he saw Luo XiaoLou appear in such a place. Those beautiful eyes narrowed as he smiled and said, “What a coincidence. I was looking for you these days. Do you have time? I want to talk to you.”
Luo XiaoLou nodded. He, likewise, wanted to ask Yuan Che about 125’s master, but whether in front of Yuan Xi, or Yuan Lie and Feng JiaLing, he wasn’t brave enough to show too much concern for the exotic beast.
The two people found a lounge. Yuan Che entered the room, sat on the sofa and casually turned off all the camera instruments in the room before he said to Luo XiaoLou, “Sit down.”
Yuan Che lazed on the sofa. Before Luo XiaoLou could walk over, he was tugged by 125 who was at his feet, so he turned around to sit opposite Yuan Che.
125 nervously and defensively stared at Yuan Che. Now that he knew this person had actually spent so much time with his master and big brother, 125 had an instinctive dislike towards Yuan Che, a strong animosity derived from the violation of an animal’s sacred territory. Naive Yuan Che’s aura was less than Yuan Xi’s, that was according to the small calculations 125 had repeatedly made, but he didn’t dare mess with him.
Now he decided to watch Luo XiaoLou, and not let this guy continue to get his way and hook up with his master.
Yuan Che smiled, handed Luo XiaoLou a cup of water and asked, “Your mecha making technique is so strong. Is it related to your being an exotic beast?”
Luo XiaoLou’s hand that held the cup tightened. He only relaxed when he realized that Yuan Che didn’t appear to have malicious intent. His foundation could be said to have been laid by Master Yan, and most of his techniques were also from Master Yan’s school. However, the bio-mecha were influenced by the drawings given by 125, as well as the Source of Consciousness, which was very important in Luo XiaoLou’s mecha making process.
Without the Source of Consciousness, he couldn’t have made the progress he had made.
Luo XiaoLou hesitated for a moment and said, “That’s part of the reason.”
Yuan Che looked at Luo XiaoLou more carefully. He even saw a little bit of restraint, and the corner of his mouth curled, “You don’t have to worry. Whether you are a human or an exotic beast, since Yuan Xi has accepted you, I won’t say anything, or do anything, as long as you do not have any thoughts of hurting him.”
“Of course I won’t. Why would I do that?” Luo XiaoLou said in surprise. With his physique, there was simply no way. He also had to be careful when Yuan Xi tried domestic violence, then he wouldn’t have family to come out for him like this.
“Is it? I just think, you exotic beasts can always easily confuse people.” Yuan Che’s handsome face showed an intriguing smile. Luo XiaoLou looked dumbfounded, even though he felt his words were somewhat irresponsible.
“Yeah, maybe. I mean, I haven’t learned that kind of skill yet.” Luo XiaoLou said with slight regret, otherwise he definitely wouldn’t have had such a miserable time in earlier days.
125 whispered next to him, “I told you already that it’s time to practice a few times, otherwise sooner or later your marriage will go wrong. You always take it with a deaf ear. The most important person in the world is the one who has no mistress. Even if Yuan Xi doesn’t want to find one, there will be someone who will pay for it, so you should follow my advice and first-” Finally aware of Yuan Che’s surprised eyes, 125 waved its paws, quietly sat back, and then said, “I’ll tell you when I get back. Don’t worry, I’ve already downloaded it for you.”
Yuan Che looked with interest at 125, who was shrinking behind Luo XiaoLou, and said, “You’re an interesting animal. Come with me to play for two days?”
125 was dumbfounded. His face turned red-green, he leapt up with his legs and feet, jumped onto the coffee table between Luo XiaoLou and Yuan Che, stretched out a paw to point at Yuan Che, and shouted angrily, “I am- I am very chaste! Besides, he won’t want to!” He swore this, then looked back at Luo XiaoLou, very uneasy. “Right?”
Luo XiaoLou was busy as he reached out to hold 125 down. He coughed and said awkwardly, “It made you laugh. It’s actually quite, mn, reliable for the most part.” Except for the personality.
While he waited for 125 to be honest, Luo XiaoLou could only look up at the enduring Yuan Che. He continued, “Do you know where 125’s owner, I mean, the guy you met, went? I have to find him. Do you have any clues after being with him for so long?”
The smile on Yuan Che’s face gradually disappeared, and something flickered in his eyes.
After a moment of silence, Yuan Che pulled a chain from his neck. Luo XiaoLou originally thought it was a space button, but on that chain hung a modest white jade pendant. Like a maple leaf, but also a special symbol.
“Before that, I would like to ask, what does this represent on the exotic beast side?” Yuan Che said.
Luo XiaoLou took it and immediately felt a heat in his hand. His eyes widened in surprise, but soon, the jade was back to being warm and cool, like the heat just now was only an illusion.
“This is 125’s master’s stuff?” Luo XiaoLou asked.
Yuan Che hummed softly. “It was his over there.”
Luo XiaoLou fondled it carefully, but except for the initial heat, he wasn’t finding anything different. He handed the pendant to 125, who was much more familiar with exotic beasts than he was, to put it mildly.
125 took it. The blue light emerged from its eyes for the first time. After a sweep, the blue light disappeared. It threw the object back to Yuan Che with disgust and said, “Although it looks like a clan emblem, it is certainly not something from the exotic beasts.”
Luo XiaoLou and Yuan Che’s face changed at the same time. At first glance, these kinds of high-tech things didn’t belong to the Gray Hole, if it wasn’t an exotic beast’s, then it meant that there was a high chance that it was from the side that kidnapped Yuan Che, and chased 125’s master.
Yuan Che’s face sank, he cupped the pendant and said, “I’ll go back and check. This thing…help me keep it a secret.”
Luo XiaoLou immediately nodded and secretly wrote down the symbol. The person who kidnapped Yuan Che, and attacked 125’s Master at the same time, was probably from that third party.
“I don’t know where he went. He sealed me there, and I had to wait. So, I hate him very much.” Yuan Che put away the chain, but didn’t put it around his neck again. Then he got up and headed for the door.
The corners of Luo XiaoLou’s mouth twitched. Wearing the things he left behind close to your body, is not the meaning of hate, ah.
Yuan Che seemed to feel Luo XiaoLou’s gaze. He turned back and smiled. “By the way, since you’re also an exotic beast, want to change back to your beast body and let me see?”
“Sh…what?” Luo XiaoLou felt sweat explode all over his body, while 125 struggled to stand in front of Luo XiaoLou.
At the door, Yuan Che laughed, “I’m teasing you. But if I bully you into tears, Yuan Xi will come after me.”
125 thought this half day had been exhausting, so he simply climbed up Luo XiaoLou shoulders, and began to rest.
Luo XiaoLou left the lounge. He still intended to hurry and book the mecha training room, but before he could take a few steps, he saw a few people in front of him.
Those people turned the corner a moment later. Luo XiaoLou was a footstep away from them, when he saw two familiar figures. One of them was Luo ShaoTian.
Luo XiaoLou was dumbfounded, then went after them. Yuan Nuo, that little kid, actually mixed with Luo ShaoTian as well? Maybe he invited him to practice together. Anyway, this was a wonderful opportunity for Luo XiaoLou. Maybe there was still hope for a surprise.
Luo XiaoLou quietly fell behind. He saw them enter an A-class comprehensive training room, and joyfully went into the observation room next to the comprehensive training room.
Then Luo XiaoLou patted 125 and said, “Please, honey, record for me. OK. They aren’t as important as you. Turn around and I’ll get your energy box done first.”
125, who had just protected his master, got a promise before he began to turn his head to intercept data from the various cameras in the integrated training room.
Luo XiaoLou stared at the big screen. Luo ShaoTian’s black mecha and Yuan Nuo’s light gray mecha were in one corner of the training room, doing a few sets of training movements. They warmed up for ten minutes before the two began to spar. Luo XiaoLou stared intently at the two, oblivious to the several other mecha around them. At the same time, he began to simulate the two men’s movements in his mind, analyzing the construction of the mecha they were using.
Luo XiaoLou stood there for two hours. 125’s eyes flashed with a blue light from time to time. Then, Luo XiaoLou finally closed his eyes and sat down.
“It’s OK, they’re almost done. By the way, the information of that boy, Yuan Nuo, was also collected.”
Luo XiaoLou turned around with 125 and quietly left the observation room. Two minutes after he left, the two mecha that were battling each other finally came to a halt.
The men next to them also stopped, and one of them said, “Brother Tian, Your Highness Yuan Nuo, what a wonderful day!”
Another man said excitedly, “Hey, I’m dumbfounded. This opportunity is rare, after this village there is no such store and there is no backup. Eh? Why is the camera instrument not turned off today?”
Luo ShaoTian and Yuan Nuo looked at each other. Neither said anything, just headed for the lounge.
By this time, there was no one left in the lounge.
Yuan Nuo finally couldn’t help but say, “What do you think he’s doing? Running over to spy on us?”
Luo ShaoTian stretched out his long legs and comfortably leaned back on the sofa. He said simply and indifferently, “I don’t know.”
Yuan Nuo saw that the corners of Luo ShaoTian’s mouth were slightly curved. He was obviously in a good mood, so Yuan Nuo also shrugged. “Forget it. Let him do whatever he does.”
Luo ShaoTian squinted at the direction Luo XiaoLou left, reached out and touched the necklace that slowly began to heat up near his heart. This necklace was exactly the same as Yuan Che’s.
