Master Yan nodded his head. Although his face was stern, everyone around him could see how proudly and lovingly the master looked at his disciple, not to mention that the stern master was known for being protective of his shortcomings.
Shen Yuan also smiled next to him, while Yang Ke’s gaze was a bit complicated. This time he was able to come because Ling Xu proposed him by name. So though Master Yan refused to give him instructions, he didn’t refuse that request.
Lieutenant General Hatton came and was about to speak, when Master Hebrew, who was next to Master Yan suddenly said, “Well, even though he’s worse than my apprentice, he seems to be okay. You are good at everything, but you have a bad eye for choosing a master.”
Luo XiaoLou looked at this display of temper, and his own master as big as the old man, with some amusement. But when he thought of his master, and that he once had a master and apprentice relationship with this other master. Then, how it might later cause the two masters a new round in their war of words, he began to sweat.
Master Yan’s reaction was much quicker than Luo XiaoLou’s. He blew his beard and looked at the old man beside him. “Not as good as your disciple? You dare to say that? Now, in his generation, how many people can exceed my apprentice? Why doesn’t your precious disciple come over here to compete?”
Master Hebrew frowned. “If it weren’t for little Bless going out, of course I’d bring him to make you envious.”
Thinking of Mu Chen, Luo XiaoLou gave Master Hebrew a worried look.
At this time, Lieutenant General Hatton finally stepped into the middle of the two masters’ war of words. “You two, still so enthusiastic every time we meet.”
Master Yan and Master Hebrew closed their mouths at the same time, then looked at Lieutenant General Hatton with contempt. “When have I been enthusiastic with him?!”
Lieutenant General Hatton touched his nose, while those who followed the two masters all lowered their heads, and silently said in their hearts, The truth, ah. Finally someone dares to tell the truth!
“It’s rare that the both of you can come. It’s really a great help to the military department. Why don’t the two masters help look at our analysis data first?” In normal times, Lieutenant General Hatton might not have contacted the two masters. Now, the landlord’s house had no spare food. Although the research and development of high-tier mecha above Tier 6 was almost all in the hands of the Ministry of the Military, still there weren’t many such master figures.
The only other one was conducting another important piece of research, and the military hierarchy specified that research couldn’t be delayed.
So, now Lieutenant General Hatton was looking forward to help from the two masters, and at the moment, not only he, but who knew how many mecha makers nearby, were ready to find the time to curry favor with them.
However, now that war has broken out, Lieutenant General Hatton couldn’t waste time, and went straight to the point.
Though the two masters were hot-tempered, in terms of work, they were exceptionally rigorous. So, they both nodded and let Lieutenant General Hatton lead the way.
Shen Yuan stayed at the end, as he smiled and patted Luo XiaoLou’s shoulder. Last time, Luo XiaoLou gave him a big help and eliminated a huge hidden problem in his future. And the increase in his success rate and the effective application rate of Spiritual Power to manufactured mecha parts made his master, Di Jia, even happier.
Di Jia hadn’t said anything initially, but took Shen Yuan to Master Yan’s place and told him about it behind closed doors. Master Yan checked Shen Yuan’s Spiritual Power and said that no one else should know about it except the three of them.
Shen Yuan’s Spiritual Power appeared to be a variation, so Luo XiaoLou’s Spiritual Power had to be kept a secret. If things leaked out, it would definitely be used by people with an interest in research.
Di Jia expressed his twelve percent approval. While he didn’t understand the stakes, he knew that Master Yan was protecting Luo XiaoLou, which, in turn, was also protection for his disciple Shen Yuan.
Shen Yuan whispered this in Luo XiaoLou’s ear, while he urged Luo XiaoLou not to let people test his Spiritual Power easily.
Luo XiaoLou smiled. If this was before, he would have really worried. After all, when he had both Spiritual Power and Source of Consciousness, it was inevitable that a little bit would leak out. Now he wasn’t afraid, so he thanked Shen Yuan and said, “Don’t worry, I have my own numbers.”
When he saw Luo XiaoLou was gauging Yang Ke in front of him, Shen Yuan smiled faintly. “Young Master Ling Xu named that one to bring along. Moreover, he has been putting in a lot of effort lately.”
Luo XiaoLou nodded, but in his heart he sighed a little. Ling Xu was actually good to his own people, but Yang Ke was obviously less talented than Shen Yuan. In the future, how the Ling Xu family mecha R & D department would choose its successor was a little difficult to say. Shen Yuan in the mecha department was expected to be the first young generation, while Yang Ke was Ling Xu’s direct choice.
I only hope that when the time comes, Ling Xu will not aggravate Shen Yuan because of Yang Ke.
Shen Yuan seemed to know what Luo XiaoLou was thinking, and knocked Luo XiaoLou on the head, “Don’t think blindly. I know my own affairs.” Even if he couldn’t stay in Kane, he could go elsewhere, and be treated as a welcome guest. But Kane had invested too much in him, and probably didn’t want to let him go.
The two followed the others into the largest studio, and saw the parts on the countertop. Luo XiaoLou froze for a moment. Those were obviously the parts from his group. It looked like the other groups hadn’t finished yet.
“The data of these parts are being gradually counted, there is detailed information on the computer, if the two of you would care to take a look.” Lieutenant General Hatton immediately pulled out the Class-A secret information from the computer.
Master Yan and Master Hebrew both stretched their heads to look at it, only to see their old counterpart coming over. Both paused for a moment, and finally continued to look with hidden expressions.
Not long after, the two finished reading the information on the computer. Neither Master Yan nor Master Hebrew drew any conclusions, just asked Lieutenant General Hatton to take them to the studio where the other seven groups were disassembling.
Lieutenant General Hatton nodded, and he also warmly invited Luo XiaoLou join him.
When they entered the room, the two masters took a look at the mecha makers busy around the mecha stumps, frowned slightly, thought of Lieutenant General Hatton’s compliments to Luo XiaoLou, and turned him. “You go up and try.”
Luo XiaoLou wasn’t modest. He went to the table and started to dismantle the mecha with the same control, and sixty percent of his spiritual power.
The moment he struck, Master Hebrew’s eyes flashed, while Master Yan gave a smile.
Shen Yuan was puzzled. Luo XiaoLou’s Spiritual Power seemed to have grown stronger again.
After a few minutes, Master Hebrew looked at Master Yan. Both of them raised their right hands at the same time.
Luo XiaoLou instantly felt that two extremely strong Spiritual Powers were extending from the left and right. He could barely control his Yuan Power which wanted to gush out 100%, and then he suppressed it to death.
The addition of the two masters, made the slow dismantling process even faster. The mecha makers, who were playing second fiddle, were in complete chaos. Finally, Lieutenant General Hatton had to transfer another group over to help.
Ten minutes later, all the mecha parts were left on the table, and most of them didn’t even need to be disassembled twice.
Lieutenant General Hatton was shocked for a few seconds, then came back to his senses, and muttered, “This is Level 10 Spiritual Power.”
With the help of two masters, the entire octopus man mecha was disassembled that morning, and now, a set of data began to be recorded by the computer.
During the lunch break, Luo XiaoLou followed Master Yan to the lounge to serve tea and water to the master. After he had enjoyed himself for a while, he threw Luo XiaoLou a pile of information.
Luo XiaoLou worked on different steps, while Master Yan made the most detailed analysis and notes. Even at each step, what changes that needed to be made were clearly written. Some places had also been changed and optimized. Luo XiaoLou was only reading now, but still benefited greatly.
If Luo XiaoLou’s designs could be used for research, Master Yan’s designs could be sent complete to the workshop for production.
“Master, these step-by-step structure diagrams are really detailed, and the changes are perfect.” Luo XiaoLou said from the bottom of his heart.
Master Yan nodded. “I’ve taken all the Tier 3 to Tier 5 to Kane. These, you send to the military department.”
Luo XiaoLou’s face reddened with excitement. “Lieutenant General Hatton will be incredibly happy.”
Master Yan grunted. “I don’t care what he thinks.” He was just doing the little apprentice a favor.
“Okay, you go ahead. If you feel tired, you don’t have to come in the afternoon.” Master Yan said. The application of Spiritual Power wasn’t like others, Master Yan worried Luo XiaoLou could not stand it.
Luo XiaoLou looked at Master Yan. Compared to himself, Master Yan and Master Hebrew consumed a lot more. He hesitated, took out a small bottle from 125, and put it on the table.
Before Luo XiaoLou could speak, Master Yan’s eyes lit up, and he picked up the bottle. A trace of white Spiritual Power was already poking into the bottle in his hand.
“A potion to raise Spiritual Power?!” Master Yan asked in surprise.
“Huh?” Luo XiaoLou was also stunned. Originally he wanted to try that but hadn’t expected the source fruit-soaked water to actually work on Spiritual Power.
Luo XiaoLou was elated, and nodded. “Master, this was obtained outside by chance. In some ways, it is also the reason for my Spiritual Power increase.”
Master Yan tested it for a while longer. “The raising process will be slow, but replenishing Spiritual Power is very fast indeed.” Then he pushed the bottle back to Luo XiaoLou. “This kind of thing, you keep it for yourself. When you encounter danger in the future, it might be a big help.”
Luo XiaoLou coughed and smiled shyly. “Master, this kind of water, I brought back a lot. I just want to ask if you can use it. Since you can, that would be great.” He asked 125 to bring out two more huge containers of more than two meters high that contained water.
Inside were lake water, and 125, who was good at collecting money, took it out in a rare and generous way, without even negotiating conditions with Luo XiaoLou.
Master Yan was stunned, and only after Luo XiaoLou repeatedly showed that he brought back quite a lot, put it away. This kind of thing, for a mecha maker, was a true priceless treasure.
Master Yan was happy that his little apprentice was really too filial. He almost immediately wanted to show off to Master Hebrew next door, but when he considered whether that old man might try to grab his potion, he hesitated for a while. Having to decide whether to show it off or let it be was essential. This was the biggest decision he had to make in recent days.
Luo XiaoLou then scratched his head and continued, “Master, it was so hard for you to come. I thought I could always follow you. However, now I have to go out. It will be about three or five days before I get back.”
“These things, you can arrange yourself. I won’t be leaving for a month.” Master Yan said with very enlightened words. However, the tone wasn’t good, and it finally opened his eyes. He glared at Luo XiaoLou. “All right. There’s nothing, so go. I’ll rest for a while.”
After saying that, he closed his eyes. Clearly he didn’t want to take care of Luo XiaoLou.
“Don’t worry. I’ll be back as soon as possible.” Luo XiaoLou said, and then gently walked up and took out a blanket to cover the old man on the recliner.
When the door was closed, Master Yan opened his eyes. Now he kind of understood that old man, Hebrew. HIs disciple wasn’t around, and thinking about it was inevitable.
In the afternoon, Luo XiaoLou went to see Yuan Xi, and was pulled out by him to take a nap together. So, Luo XiaoLou handed those drawings to Yuan Xi. “My master wants to give these to the military department.”
Then, Luo XiaoLou took advantage of the moment when Yuan Xi was looking at the drawings to carefully move and kiss him. He used the tip of his tongue on Yuan Xi’s lips and effortlessly entered Yuan Xi’s mouth, which he did not refuse.
Holding the frozen Yuan Xi, Luo XiaoLou initiated a passionate wet kiss, then withdrew before Yuan Xi regained his senses. He walked towards the door while he said. “Honey, you’re busy. I’m going to debug the mecha with Luo ShaoTian. Also, I’m going back to organize. After all, I’m going to planet Louis tomorrow.”
Yuan Xi looked angrily at Luo XiaoLou, who was walking away. It was so unbelievable, he had to teach him a lesson when night came!
While he was planning angrily, he pulled the clothes beside him and covered his erection without letting it see daylight.
