Rod began to drip sweat again, as he looked at the Prince and Prince Consort, ready to go. His heart was torn, and his mouth said, “Your Royal Highness. This…this does not seem to be in line with the rules. After all, we are here to protect you and His Royal Highness, the Prince Consort–“
Yuan Xi glanced at him lightly. “I also think so. If you can follow smoothly, and don’t drag a leg, I will be very happy.”
Rod opened his mouth, but in the end he didn’t say anything more. This damn LuoFu Star. The rumors clearly were that there were no intelligent life forms, only beasts. Well, only ferocious beasts. But, could that really be called no intelligence?
A few of the guards had gone to explore the road in the morning. As a result, a herd of beasts that could fly and run, chased and intercepted them, or they just simply bit at the back of their asses and shooed them out. They even gave them mocking looks behind their backs!
LuoFu Star was a real beast’s paradise. No humans. No higher intelligence life forms. Here, one could only hope for boundless green plants and unrestrained beasts. These fierce beasts had no fear of humans who appeared in their territory. They even didn’t hesitate to move a little during hunting or resting time to tell them that they are the masters of LuoFu.
After Rod and the others retreated back in a mess, Yuan Xi considered things for a while and decided to take Luo XiaoLou to find the source fruit alone. Even if they encountered danger, the two of them could return in one piece when they got in the mecha. And Luo XiaoLou just made a Tier 7 bio-mecha, which gave Yuan Xi the confidence that he could definitely guarantee their safety.
After they packed up, Yuan Xi hugged Luo XiaoLou and jumped down from the spaceship. Yuan Xi landed silently on the ground, then pulled out his black energy sword, and Luo XiaoLou took out the energy dagger Yuan Xi gave him. Because they were looking for the source fruit, they had to move on foot and search within the general area given to them by 125 after an analysis.
Yuan Xi was already a good fighter, and after he’d practiced ancient martial arts, he had no problem moving quickly with Luo XiaoLou.
Yuan Xi held Luo XiaoLou with one arm, while Luo XiaoLou concentrated on using his Source of Consciousness to look around and determine the location of the source fruit. The biggest problem now was that they had no idea what the source fruit looked like.
Luo XiaoLou kept an eye on the plants on both sides while Yuan Xi was moving. He also turned sideways from time to time to release his Source of Consciousness.
As a result, with Luo XiaoLou being carried for a while, Yuan Xi began to complain, “Can’t you be more honest?” It was fortunate that it was him. If it was someone else, this guy was too good at seducing people. He heard 125 downloaded some kind of manual for Luo XiaoLou, it’s specifically for him, right?
Luo XiaoLou gave Yuan Xi a breathless look, “Do you take me for a log? That thing isn’t easy to find already, but you still add to the chaos. Yuan Xi, do you think the source fruit could be a flower?”
Luo XiaoLou suddenly changed the subject as he looked at a blooming white flower in the distance.
Yuan Xi nailed a white-backed spider with his energy sword before it landed on Luo XiaoLou’s head, while he casually asked, “Do you think it’s the same as the one that Lady Kelly was wearing on her head?”
Luo XiaoLou’s Source of Consciousness had just finished detecting and withdrawn. When he heard these words, he narrowed his eyes, turned his head to Yuan Xi and said, “Your memory is really admirable, Your Highness. It’s definitely not easy to forget a great beauty like that.”
Luo XiaoLou had the uncomfortable feeling of having something of his own being coveted when he thought of the obsessive and revealing sight of that woman, as she stared at Yuan Xi on the day of the banquet. What surprised him even more, was that Yuan Xi was actually quite impressed with that beauty, something that had almost never happened before.
Luo XiaoLou was dull for a second. In retrospect Yuan Xi, seemed very thoughtful at that time. He pushed away from Yuan Xi, and backed up two steps, but because he was angry, he forgot to use detection first.
Yuan Xi looked blankly at Luo XiaoLou, who was huffing and puffing and was walking away, and just wanted to remind him that his Source of Consciousness was perfectly capable of detecting things from a distance and there was no need to go back.
Suddenly, there was a chirping sound not far behind them. The two turned their heads at the same time. A colored-tailed chicken was struggling, but that didn’t allow it to get rid of the dark green, giant lizard that had a death bite on the back of its neck. After the prey no longer moved in its mouth, the lizard turned its head to look at their side, then quickly leapt away.
Luo XiaoLou opened his mouth wide, looked at the tall, half-human lizard, then ran back to Yuan Xi in a few steps, and held his arm as he said quickly, “I…I think we should probably speed up.”
Yuan Xi looked at him for two seconds in surprise. “Sure. But there’s no need for you to be afraid of those-“
Luo XiaoLou coughed and corrected, “I’m not afraid. I just don’t want to waste time. This is a critical time, or when we attend the next banquet, you might meet that flower-wearing Lady Kelly again.”
“Why do you always mention her?” Yuan Xi gave Luo XiaoLou a warning look and said discontentedly, “Is there a worse image than her? I simply can’t compliment your aesthetics.”
Luo XiaoLou hesitated for a moment, and after he realized that Yuan Xi’s sarcasm was sincere, he cleared his throat. “Well, you’re right.”
Without further delay, the two quickly moved forward again.
At this moment, the others were resting on the spaceship, high in the sky.
Rod frowned tightly at the image on the screen. Two green dots that hated to cling together, were moving rapidly. That meant that the two highnesses were still in the process of searching. It surprised him that they had been in for so long and never been attacked by a beast. So these fucking beasts will also just look at people?
However, it didn’t take long for Rod to realize that something wasn’t normal. Around the two, some red dots that represented fierce beasts slowly began to gather, then more and more. There was a tendency to surround the two.
Rod drew a breath and stood up, ready to call for help.
However, then he suddenly saw a strange scene. The green dots, he didn’t know for what reason, went back a distance. The red dots not only didn’t take advantage of the opportunity to surround them, they suddenly panicked. Then, surprisingly, they also moved back a distance along with the green dots.
Only then did Rod find that the green dots and red dots always maintained that distance, never any closer, as if the red dots were afraid of something. He didn’t think that the beasts were waiting for the right time to kill them. There was no better time than this. These guys didn’t know the virtue of humility, they had already earned it.
Although he didn’t understand, Rod quickly put everyone in their mecha, entered a state of readiness and reported the bizarre situation to Yuan Xi.
Yuan Xi paused for a second and said, “Got it, you guys don’t need to come over.” After he said that, he turned off the communication device.
Rod had no choice but to wait nervously, still standing by.
Yuan Xi expressionlessly looked at Luo XiaoLou. As he gazed at his dark eyes, Luo XiaoLou wasn’t sure why, but he actually felt a bit vain.
125 completely couldn’t see Yuan Xi’s face from where he was sitting on Luo XiaoLou’s shoulder, so he proudly said, “My dear, you are a noble exotic beast. These inferior races feel the higher genes and bloodline intimidation. They can’t help but submit in awe.”
Luo XiaoLou shrank in Yuan Xi’s arms. He hadn’t felt that submissive awe, but the coldness of the people around him, he felt very clearly!
Yuan Xi grunted coldly. 125 suddenly felt a tingling in his scalp. He stiffened for a moment, then quickly changed the direction of the conversation, as he tried to praise the weather that almost counted as gloomy.
Luo XiaoLou was trying to calm Yuan Xi down when his Source of Consciousness suddenly fluctuated violently as if pulled by something.
Surprised, Luo XiaoLou stopped in his tracks, pointed in a direction and said to Yuan Xi, “Quick. I’m feeling it over there.”
Yuan Xi wasn’t too happy, but still cooperated and sped up. Following the direction Luo XiaoLou indicated, he arrived in no time at a nearly ninety-degree cliff with lush vegetation below.
Yuan Xi frowned and held Luo XiaoLou tightly to jump down.
At the same time, Luo XiaoLou released his Source of Consciousness with more force, so he could be sure that the source fruit was nearby.
Luo XiaoLou quickly determined the direction, then tugged on Yuan Xi’s clothes. Yuan Xi once again cooperated to speed up.
However, as that strange feeling became more and more obvious, Luo XiaoLou felt his body get hot. He grabbed Yuan Xi’s shoulders hard and was about to say something, when suddenly his body shuddered and he turned into a white beast under the surprised eyes of Yuan Xi and 125.
The corner of Yuan Xi’s mouth twitched when he looked at the familiar white beast in his arms that clung to him.
The white beast’s eyes dodged and he called out. Yuan Xi resisted the urge to move roughly, and almost gently changed Luo XiaoLou into a more comfortable position, so that Luo XiaoLou rested his paws on his arm. After two seconds of silence, Yuan Xi said, “Point me in the direction, and if there is something wrong, let 125 tell me.”
Luo XiaoLou nodded obediently and started pointing the way after Yuan Xi put his clothes away.
Because there were no fierce beasts in the way, the two of them quickly passed through the woods. At the edge of the woods, where Luo XiaoLou felt the greatest reaction to his Source of Consciousness, the place was actually a huge lake.
No matter how Luo XiaoLou probed, the source of the reaction was here. Moreover, the lake seemed to have a strong temptation for him. Luo XiaoLou couldn’t help but jump down, lie on the edge of the lake and lick the water. He automatically froze. When he slobbered up that water or used energy stones, it was the same. Although it was weak, it did contain energy! God, the source fruit, it couldn’t be this lake. His stomach was big, but he couldn’t drink such a big lake, ah!
