Luo ShaoTian stood next to the console, and watched Luo XiaoLou in his work clothes as he sat on the work chair, and carefully made the changes he requested. At that moment, Luo XiaoLou smiled and raised his head, “You’ve been waiting for a long time. Can you try it now?”
Luo ShaoTian straightened up. “No worries. It was just a little while. I’ll try it right away.” After taking two steps, he raised his eyebrows and looked at Luo XiaoLou with a questioning look.
Luo XiaoLou took the tools in his hand and pointed to his clothes, “You go by yourself. You know, just after debugging mecha, I can’t stand the smell myself–“
“It’s okay, I don’t mind. Besides, it’s easier to see the effect if you follow.” Luo ShaoTian insisted.
Luo XiaoLou hesitated for two seconds, then followed.
This time, Luo ShaoTian helped him activate the protective device. Luo ShaoTian’s fingers moved slightly, and before Luo XiaoLou could see his instructions clearly, the mecha quickly flew out. Luo XiaoLou realized that on the first test flight, Luo ShaoTian had slowed down the speed to match his senses.
After he paid attention to the data for a while, Luo XiaoLou was completely captivated by the powerful aura of a mecha warrior – and god knows how much he wanted to record it live then go back to watch it.
It wasn’t until Luo ShaoTian told the mecha to stop, turned his head to look at him, and asked softly if he was okay, that Luo XiaoLou hastily withdrew his admiring and envious gaze. He coughed, and said, “Just now I was only paying attention to the data, and damn, it worked really well.”
The corners of Luo ShaoTian’s mouth curved. “Mn.”
Luo XiaoLou was embarrassed. He felt slightly like he was just selling himself short, even though he was really quite happy with this mecha. He immediately added, “I mean, you let it play out exactly as it should, and in fact it might be a little better. Beyond my imagination. Beyond what I thought it would be.”
Luo ShaoTian brought Luo XiaoLou down. When they came up, it was Luo XiaoLou himself who came up, and that slow speed was enough to make all mecha warriors sweat.
Luo ShaoTian retrieved the mecha, communicated with Luo XiaoLou about the characteristics of the bio-mecha, and before leaving asked Luo XiaoLou about the time of tomorrow’s departure.
As the two walked to the door, Luo ShaoTian felt the necklace on his chest heat up, and suddenly said to Luo XiaoLou in front of him. “I was very happy you gave me this.”
Luo XiaoLou froze, controlled the small surprise inside, tried to create a brotherly appearance, and said gently, “I am also very happy.”
After Luo XiaoLou and Luo ShaoTian left the mecha training room, a sudden roar sounded in the monitoring room. Finally, after a shocking commotion, Yuan Nuo left the training room with a black face.
The squire, who had been thrown out of the room at work, and had to help guard the door, looked at the angry young Highness with trepidation. He didn’t quite understand why he was so, uh, hot to watch Prince Consort’s own brother test the mecha.
That evening, Luo XiaoLou excitedly and apprehensively packed up his things. With the thought that he would be away for a few days, he prepared another week’s worth of snacks for Yuan Xi, fish and shrimp, the essential cake and the like, and put it in the storage box. Then he considered Luo ShaoTian and Little Brother Yuan, and he prepared some more for the three of them to take with them when they left.
The rest of the Yuan family, on the other hand, didn’t know Luo XiaoLou was going out until dinner time.
Feng JiaLing didn’t say anything more after asking about safety, but Yuan Lie and Yuan Che were surprised that Luo XiaoLou was going out at such a dangerous time. However, without giving them a chance to ask questions, Yuan Xi dragged Luo XiaoLou back to their room.
Later that night, Yuan Xi even gave up his training time to viciously punish Luo XiaoLou, who had casually seduced him, and as a result, Luo XiaoLou almost missed going out early the next morning.
Luo XiaoLou rubbed his back as he hurriedly got dressed and kept complaining.
He’s gotten bolder lately and had a tendency to become more and more of a housewife, Yuan Xi thought darkly, but with the departure coming up…The thought of him not going along was disheartening. Oh, unsettling. Well, just spare the little slave.
“As long as you come back safely.” Yuan Xi coughed and admonished.
Luo XiaoLou, who had finished washing up, stopped chattering and walked up to Yuan Xi, “Damn. Of course. Don’t worry, I’ll be absolutely fine. You are also at home, I have cooked your snacks, remember to eat more fruits, your clothes-“
Yuan Xi put Luo XiaoLou’s arms around him hard and covered the mouth that wouldn’t stop for a moment.
By the time Yuan Xi’s stinky face finally sent Luo XiaoLou to Luo ShaoTian and Yuan Nuo, both of them were considering whether they should wait for lunch or something.
“No matter what, absolutely nothing should happen to him.” Yuan Xi admonished.
Yuan Nuo almost jumped up. “Brother, I know. You’re really becoming more and more like an old uncle.”
Luo ShaoTian’s face was calm, but he nodded solemnly.
The three of them got on the small spaceship and soon, they were out of Imperial Capital.
From Imperial Capital, it was a three-day journey to the planet Louis. This time, there were only the three of them on the spaceship. They set the ship on autopilot, and Luo XiaoLou went into the workshop.
Yuan Nuo made a few trips back and forth outside the door, watched Luo ShaoTian focus on the ship’s travel status in the cockpit, then went back to his room. He was now a freshman and had quite a few courses to study online. Although he didn’t really like the atmosphere of being watched by countless people while he studied, it had gone on since he was a child, so he’d gotten used to it. This was something that the Yuan family had to get used to.
With so many people around who only wanted the status, Yuan Nuo wondered how his iceberg brother found Luo XiaoLou and dug up a treasure! He needed to find a wife who could cook. In fact, it would be better if they were a mecha maker. As for the looks, well, of course, they couldn’t be too bad.
Then, Yuan Nuo suddenly realized that he had actually taken Luo XiaoLou as an example, and he winced hard. God knows he didn’t have any strange thoughts about his brother-in-law at all. If he had, Yuan Xi would have beaten him up!
Perhaps, he should let his cousin make the decision on marriage matters…
It was noon before Luo XiaoLou came out of the studio. He was busy with the materials for a Tier 7 mecha for Yuan Nuo which was first on the agenda, as well as for Ino and others. Since Ling Xiao found out that Ino gave Luo XiaoLou energy stones in exchange for mecha, he asked Dees to bring more energy stones over, and now there was no shortage of high-level energy stones.
Many of the masters of the Grey Hole had looked at their worst mecha, and then looked at the super performance mecha that XiaoLou was driving, and they all hit on LIng Xiao’s idea.
Luo XiaoLou directly asked the people of the Ministry of the Military to help make a batch of Grade 6 mecha parts. The people at the Ministry of the Military agreed to be quite quick, then asked for one-fifth as the payment. So, Luo XiaoLou would send one-fifth of the finished product to the Ministry of the Military, and the Ministry of the Military would bear all the material costs.
With the promise of stable earnings, Luo XiaoLou agreed, and his smiling eyes narrowed.
As for Yuan Nuo’s mecha, of course he had to do it himself. After all, the one he intended to give to his little brother was also a custom mecha.
Luo XiaoLou went to the kitchen, wandered around and actually found quite a few ingredients. He paused for a moment, then warmed up the food he brought. When it was time to eat lunch, all three arrived at the dining room and Luo ShaoTian displayed the surveillance video on the wall screen.
Yuan Nuo, who had made up his mind to please his brother-in-law, was so complimentary when he saw the food that he blushed a little bit himself. But when Yuan Nuo realized that guy actually wasn’t saying a word, he couldn’t help but look over, only to find that Luo ShaoTian had been eating in silence, and he wasn’t slow.
The corner of Yuan Nuo’s mouth shivered. He immediately stopped talking, and surreptitiously moved the plate to his side. After taking a bite, he couldn’t care less about talking and couldn’t help but speed up.
On the third day, they arrived at the planet Louis. The spaceship requested to land on planet Louis, and this time, it was quickly answered with permission.
The trio parked the ship some distance away from Louis Castle, and then flew their mecha to the castle.
Little brother Yuan Nuo thought of Luo XiaoLou’s terrible piloting skills and for the sake of his heart, painstakingly persuaded Luo XiaoLou to get on their mecha. After Luo XiaoLou agreed to his persuasion, Luo ShaoTian logically pulled him over for the very good reason that his mecha was more advanced and conducive to protecting Luo XiaoLou.
Several people reached the castle gate. After they scanned their communication devices, the gate opened silently. A middle-aged butler greeted them at the door along with a number of people.
The middle-aged butler led the people to salute respectfully and said, “Your Highness Prince Consort, Your Highness Yuan Nuo, and Colonel Luo, please wait for a moment. Mr. Louis was going to come to greet you personally, but it just so happens that there are several other distinguished guests. Please wait in the living room for a moment, the Count and the young master will come over soon.”
The attitude was respectful enough, yet the three people froze. There were guests more distinguished than them? After the three of them arrived at the living room, the middle-aged butler quickly brought black tea and pastries, then quietly retreated.
Yuan Nuo and Luo ShaoTian started whispering, while Luo XiaoLou surveyed the castle and mentally asked 125 if he felt his master. 125 jumped up and down with excitement, but finally came back, downcast, he didn’t feel anything at all.
That puzzled Luo XiaoLou so he started to release his Yuan Power, but soon, Luo XiaoLou frowned and withdrew it. He found that he could use his Yuan Power, but when he tried to probe down, he was blocked back by an invisible barrier.
There was really something wrong underneath the castle, and Luo XiaoLou became more and more sure that 125’s master was down here. The cost of materials to shield the power of a spiritual system would be sky-high. So, it was surprising that such a huge barrier was made with this kind of material.
Luo XiaoLou began to doubt the identity of Sir Louis. Was he helping 125’s master, or had he sealed him? This Sir seemed to be a normal human, but…
Thinking of this, Luo XiaoLou who hadn’t fully retracted his Yuan Power suddenly heard footsteps. His mind moved and his Yuan Power quietly spread out.
Soon, thirty meters away, Luo XiaoLou found Sir Louis and his son, the ghostwriter Locke Louis, proficient in networking, medicine, and also a mecha warrior. At that moment, the two were laughing and joking as they accompanied two other people outside. Luo XiaoLou found, to his surprise, one was Shao Rong, and the other was Qian Heng, who was missing an arm!
Luo XiaoLou was shocked. Although both Qian Heng and Shao Rong were exotic beasts, they weren’t from his side at all. If Sir Louis and these two were in a group, then the purpose of their visit could definitely not be achieved, and, moreover, there might be some kind of danger.
But there were still troops stationed on the planets not far away within the Empire. Luo XiaoLou’s heart also lifted when he thought of Luo ShaoTian and little brother Yuan.
At this time, the young man, Locke Louis suddenly smiled in the direction of Luo XiaoLou.
Luo XiaoLou shivered, and his Yuan Power quickly retreated. After he reached the Super Source of Consciousness, if he was careful, even Qian Heng and Shao Rong would find it hard to detect him. Had Locke Louis had found him? But how could that be? He never felt the bloodline of the exotic beast in Locke Louis.
