Yuan Xi froze, then revealed a rare smile, “JinHua? You’re actually here.”
The young man with a subtle aristocratic air, had been staring at Yuan Xi’s face since he entered the ship. He said softly and with a light smile, “Of course. I was planning to go to the Imperial Capital. Who knew that halfway there, I would meet such an unfortunate incident. Happily, I met you here, Your Highness. You saved me once again.”
The smile on Yuan Xi’s face quickly disappeared, and he looked at the captured green mecha with a thoughtful expression. “I didn’t expect to find that the Robi Star octopus people are so rampant now. I believe I’ll have to contact the military department.”
Yuan Xi said that, waved a hand at the captain and deputy captain who came over, and turned around to walk towards the cockpit.
The captain bowed respectfully and planned to go back, while the deputy captain hesitated. He looked at the young man who was very familiar with His Royal Highness, and said, “Your Excellency, you-“
“I will stay here,” he said without hesitation. Then he gave a peculiar glance to Jin XiuCheng, who hadn’t spoken since he greeted Yuan Xi, and said, “He also stays.”
The captain was obviously very unhappy with the two men’s self-initiated behavior, and the deputy captain’s acquiescence to the two men not coming with him was also something he hadn’t expected. He glared at the deputy captain and went ahead to the civilian ship’s passage.
With a decent smile, Rod came out and said to the young man, “Young Master An. Oh, it’s time to call you Your Excellency. Please follow me. The one in the back, mn, Mr. Jin, come too.”
The young master, An JinHua, who grew up with His Royal Highness, appeared completely unchanged. The smile on the corner of Rod’s mouth, who was walking in the forefront, grew deeper and deeper. Back then, His Royal Highness had even reprimanded him several times for this young master An, not to mention others.
However, now could be different from the past. His Highness was being accompanied by His Highness, the Prince Consort. Now that His Highness’s childhood friend showed up, who knew what the impact on His Highness would be.
Luo XiaoLou came back to his senses. He watched as 125 carried a pair of super magnifying glasses and sat in front of the screen. His body was trembling at a speed visible to the naked eye, and Luo XiaoLou couldn’t help but ask in concern, “My dear, is your program disordered?”
“Of course not! I’ve been upgraded. There’s no way I can make a mistake! I’m just excited. No, no, nervous. Nervous you know?! Don’t you even notice?” 125 poked Luo XiaoLou’s shoulder with his tail. After a few seconds, when he found that Luo XiaoLou hadn’t even looked at the screen, he turned back and rolled his eyes. “It’s your attitude of indifference that gives others the opportunity to take advantage of the situation. Hey, you. You’ll regret it sooner or later, if you don’t listen to me, the relationship expert! And soon, I promise!”
Luo XiaoLou grabbed some paper and rubbed 125’s head smoothly, “Mn. Soon. I don’t think I have much time to deal with it. Honey, maybe you’d like to come with me to see that octopus man’s mecha. Think about it. We found the source fruit, so we can open that box right away and save your master. After that, I can definitely make a more advanced mecha.”
“Speaking of which, put the source fruit in my storage.” 125 said immediately, as he slightly sobered up from his dog-blood drama brainstorming.
Luo XiaoLou didn’t hesitate, and handed the storage box that contained the source fruit to 125. It was undoubtedly the safest there.
125 snuck a look at Luo XiaoLou, and then waved his tail. He…he won’t be touched by this little thing. However, if Yuan Xi dares to be so insensitive as to choose those two people to cheat with, he will definitely take Luo XiaoLou away.
Obviously their noble exotic beast prince was married, but Yuan Xi was still going around picking wild flowers, huh.
The same evening, Yuan Xi came out of the cockpit, only to be reminded by a smiling Rod that he had two more guests.Yuan Xi frowned slightly and finally said, “Then let’s have dinner together.”
Luo XiaoLou walked briskly to the dining room, and under the eyes of Rod and the two young guests, Luo XiaoLou walked directly to Yuan Xi, sat down beside him and said enthusiastically, “Dear, I want to discuss something with you. The mecha you seized, it’s put away, right? I’ve been looking for it for half a day, but I couldn’t find it. Let me see it first?”
After saying that, he felt that he had to show some sincerity, so he leaned over and kissed Yuan Xi. The speed was so fast, that even 125 felt it was a little hard to cope with.
Yuan Xi stiffened for a moment. He still maintained the appearance of sitting upright, then coughed and said, “Mn. Let’s start eating.”
Then he turned to Luo XiaoLou. “You can visit anytime, but I think that even if you go to the military department, Lieutenant General Hatton will welcome you in a million ways.” The old man had been chanting to him for a long time.
“Oh? Well, that’s good. Then when you go to the military department, drop me off on the way.” Luo XiaoLou imagined going out with Yuan Xi, and it seemed fine.
An JinHua clenched his fingers a little harder, and looked at Luo XiaoLou with eyes that flashed with gloom, but he quickly replaced it with a smiling expression.
“What, do you have guests?” Luo XiaoLou asked as he ate, finally having noticed that the people at their table didn’t seem to be acquaintances.
Yuan Xi reluctantly introduced them. “This is An JinHua. He’s my former retainer and now Count Cade’s son-in-law. The other one –” Yuan Xi looked at Jin XiuCheng and raised his eyebrows. He was about to say that he was a friend of An JinHua.
Jin XiuCheng already had a slight smile and said lightly, “Hello to the two Highnesses. I am Jin XiuCheng, a student of Cadell Academy.”
Luo XiaoLou replied casually while serving soup for Yuan Xi. “Oh, that famous art school?”
The grandfather was waiting with his hand outstretched beside him. Luo XiaoLou deeply regretted spoiling Yuan Xi like this. He swore that even if the oil bottle had fallen over, this grandfather would have contacted him on his communication device then told him to go home and help!
“You could say that.” Jin XiuCheng said proudly. “I’m majoring in music, and I’ll be able to give a solo recital starting next semester.” He spoke elegantly and politely, but with the clear self-possession characteristic of musicians.
“Oh, that’s great.” Luo XiaoLou said.
Yuan Xi gave Luo XiaoLou a faint, contemptuous look. He was talking as if he knew how to appreciate elegant music, and obviously used piano music as lullabies every night. However, in order to save some face for Luo XiaoLou, he didn’t say anything sarcastic to him in front of outsiders.
Jin XiuCheng’s eyes narrowed. Yuan Xi didn’t look at him much. Suddenly, there was an unspoken irritation. He had a boyfriend, and still came here even though it was to complete the mission. But meeting up after the attack was purely accidental.
At that time, he thought they were all dead, but then this man appeared like a god and saved them. Suddenly, he found that he didn’t hate this mission anymore. When he first saw Yuan Xi, he felt that he wouldn’t need to be forced to really have a relationship with this prince. However, now it seemed that the prince’s eyes were all over the person next to him.
The two of them were obviously not good at all. Not as good looking as him, and his temperament was even worse by a hundred thousand miles.
His Royal Highness’s hobby was really…mind-boggling.
Thinking about the information given to him by the others, Jin XiuCheng somewhat understood. It must have been because Luo XiaoLou met His Highness Yuan Xi much earlier. His Royal Highness had been focused on various training, and was so emotionally pure, that he was bewitched by such a person and even hastily wed him.
An JinHua noticed the expression on Yuan Xi’s face and the corners of his mouth turned slightly. When Su Lan approached him, he knew that Jin XiuCheng wouldn’t be of much use. If Yuan Xi was so easily moved…
An JinHua’s eyes darkened, and he turned his gaze, not moving as he measured Luo XiaoLou. Then he said with a smile, “I heard that His Highness, Prince Consort, is a well-known mecha maker in the empire, though there is not a lot of praise from the major media. This bodyguard of mine is none other than a mecha warrior.”
An JinHua, gestured back at the thirty-year-old mecha warrior, who was standing behind him. “Can you please make a mecha for my bodyguard? Speaking of which, his mecha was made by the royal palace mecha maker who used to specialize in making mecha for His Royal Highness. Unfortunately, it seems to be a bit low grade now.”
Luo XiaoLou was surprised, and glanced at the spirited 125, who was sitting in the seat next to him with glowing eyes. He wondered in his heart. He thought that 125 didn’t need to take a seat for dinner, right? This guy’s procedure tonight was definitely not normal.
Luo XiaoLou raised his head under Yuan Xi’s exasperated eyes, looked at An JinHua not far away and calmly said, “No. I don’t have time. I don’t have time to make extra mecha, except for Yuan Xi and the warriors I agree with.”
Yuan Xi looked slightly at An JinHua. An JinHua was right. In the past, he had often asked him for mecha. But, if it was Luo XiaoLou, he would never agree to it. Even if Luo XiaoLou dared to agree, he would help him refuse.
An JinHua turned red, looked at Yuan Xi and finally said, “Is that so? That’s a pity.”
Rod suddenly felt all the stuffiness in his heart come out, and he became more and more attentive in serving Luo XiaoLou and Yuan Xi, he even set cutlery and a juice cup in front of 125.
After dinner, Yuan Xi took Luo XiaoLou back to the bedroom, while 125 followed behind the two with a weird expression. Oh, the dogged drama didn’t seem to affect this sluggish Prince Consort at all. This…this simply stimulated the heart. However, it was worthy of their exotic beast Highness, to win without a fight!
Three days later, they returned to the Imperial Capital and, unnoticed by Yuan Xi and Luo XiaoLou, An JinHua took Jin XiuCheng to live in an opulent mansion near the royal palace.
Once back in a safe place, Luo XiaoLou began to think about using the source fruit. He made all kinds of preparations and even talked with Yuan Xi, Mr. Butler and others, so that if he didn’t come out, they wouldn’t disturb him.
Then, Luo XiaoLou asked 125 to take out the source fruit. He looked apprehensively at 125, who was all tense, took a deep breath, and placed his hand on the huge source fruit.
And the moment he closed his eyes, the door was opened again silently.
