The two of them were still talking in low voices, about the person and background of Sir Louis. They hadn’t noticed Luo XiaoLou was sitting quietly at the side with a big change in his expression.
Luo XiaoLou immediately turned his head to look at Yuan Nuo and Luo ShaoTian, and said softly, “Be careful later, I think something is wrong, that Louis-“
Luo XiaoLou intended to agree on a plan with the two first, but before he could explain, the door creaked open. Luo XiaoLou stiffened.
The middle-aged butler smilingly appeared at the door with black tea and said respectfully, “Your two Highnesses. Colonel Luo. You have waited a long time. Sir Louis will come right away.”
Luo XiaoLou opened his mouth. Now, he could only wish that Sir Louis, and the even more bizarre Locke Louis were coming later, but while the middle-aged butler was standing by, he could no longer say anything.
But next to him, Luo ShaoTian looked at him and nodded slightly, a suggestion that he would pay attention.
Luo XiaoLou was obviously a bit distracted, and Yuan Nuo also patted him in comfort.
Luo XiaoLou smiled, but before he could say anything, he felt a great pressure that suddenly rushed towards the three of them. Luo XiaoLou reacted instinctively. Yuan Power gushed out from his body, and enveloped him and his companions.
When he reacted, his face immediately began to turn white. He didn’t regret exposing his power, but in the midst of his alarm he wondered, was Sir Louis really planning to make a move? Had they joined forces with Qian Heng and abandoned the identity of the Empire?
The pressure that clearly came from spiritual power was getting bigger and bigger. Luo XiaoLou had to use all of his Yuan Power to resist. He couldn’t even take the time to warn the people beside him.
The two of them didn’t notice. Even though they could see Luo XiaoLou’s face was ugly, they only thought he was nervous.
Luo XiaoLou, of course, absolutely knew that truly powerful spiritual power could not only be used to make mecha, but also to kill people. So, to oppose the spiritual power that was getting closer and closer, he released his Yuan Power again and again. As his body started to run out of Yuan Power, sweat appeared on Luo XiaoLou’s forehead. He then drew out the last of his energy and concentrated it into a sharp cone, and threw it at the weakest point in the spiritual power.
A few seconds later, the surge of spiritual power suddenly dissipated. He’d succeeded.
Luo XiaoLou sat down in a chair, and panted slightly.
Yuan Nuo turned his head to look at him suspiciously, and said in an unpleasant whisper, “I’m here. What are you afraid of?”
Luo ShaoTian didn’t say anything, but walked to the other side of Luo XiaoLou and sat down.
Luo XiaoLou raised his eyes to look at him, but just then, footsteps came from the door followed by the sound of laughter. Sir Louis and young Locke Louis walked in.
Luo ShaoTian and Yuan Nuo stood up. Yuan Nuo also stood behind Luo XiaoLou, Sir Louis walked over quickly with a smile on his face.
First, he saluted Luo XiaoLou and Yuan Nuo, and then smiled at Luo ShaoTian and said, “Your Highness Prince Consort, Your Highness, and Colonel Luo ShaoTian, welcome to Louis Castle. Guests have come to make the planet Louis much more colorful! Your presence was a great addition to the planet. However, because I had something to do just now, I couldn’t greet you personally, so please forgive me.”
Yuan Nuo smiled faintly and replied perfectly with a few words of social rhetoric, then turned his words around and continued, “I heard that Sir Louis is rich, and today I see that the rumors are true. Although this is only a small property, it is also so beautiful.”
Sir Louis’ eyes flashed and he laughed again. “Although this place is not big, the scenery and climate are good, I also love this castle the most. When I have spare time, I like to come and stay for a few days. If you have free time, I would like to entertain you. Stay a few more days. You will know all the wonders of this castle.”
Sir Louis was respectful, warm and courteous, not at all like someone who wanted to betray them. But Luo XiaoLou still stared at him with twelve points of defensiveness. Luo ShaoTian, who was beside him, was expressionless, but didn’t conceal the icy coldness in his eyes. If Sir Louis really had a rebellious mind, he was taking Luo XiaoLou out of there.
Sir Louis invited the three to take their seats and had the butler bring back the black tea before he asked, “I wonder what business has several distinguished guests coming here?”
Yuan Nuo and Luo ShaoTian looked at each other and decided to say they came over to discuss borrowing the castle from Louis for a few days.
Luo XiaoLou found Locke Louis had been staring at him with a smirk. His mind turned around and he said before Yuan Nuo and Luo ShaoTian, “It’s like this. I want to buy Planet Louis. I wonder if Sir Louis would be willing to cut a deal?”
With this sentence, not only the two Louis, but also Yuan Nuo and Luo ShaoTian, all looked at Luo XiaoLou with some surprise.
“Oh! Your Highness Prince Consort, this request of yours really surprises me. But you know, however many people holding out treasures want to buy from me, I haven’t agreed.” Sir Louis said with narrowed eyes; fox-like.
“I’m aware of this. I also know that your Excellency does not wish to buy with money, then your Excellency can as for what you want most. I will definitely find a way to meet your request.” Luo XiaoLou said with great sincerity.
Locke Louis looked at Luo XiaoLou with a smile, took a sip of black tea and said, “I wonder why His Highness Prince Consort wants to buy the planet?”
“I think the two of you should know very well what my purpose is.” Luo XiaoLou glanced in the direction of the fortress and replied with the same smile.
Louis Fortress had always been something that the military and the Empire wanted to get their hands on. For one thing, the location was important, and for another, the artillery and configuration there had made some generals very excited. They had attempted many ways to buy the planet and the fortress from Sir Louis, but none of them worked.
So Luo XiaoLou hit on the idea to use the fortress as an excuse. Now that the Louis, father and son, obviously had a connection with Qian Heng and Shao Rong, he didn’t want to borrow the castle in the case of an unknown friend or foe. If they noticed that he wanted to hide the departure of a stranger, there could be trouble.
Locke Louis looked at Luo XiaoLou for a few seconds and finally showed a smile again, “Your Highness Prince Consort has very good courage, but I like that kind of character. Let’s put it this way. Father and I can agree. However, you also must have something of enough corresponding value to exchange.”
Luo XiaoLou was a bit surprised he got the two to agree so easily, and immediately asked, “What do you want?”
“I have everything here, except for one Tier 10 mecha,” Locke Louis said slowly.
Luo ShaoTian and Yuan Nuo’s faces changed. A Tier 10. That wasn’t easy to find anywhere in the entire empire. That really was sky high, yet he actually dared to ask for it.
Luo XiaoLou frowned and finally said, “Okay. I will bring it over as soon as possible. However, until then, because of this deal, I hope that neither the planet, nor the fortress, will change again.”
“Of course. Don’t worry.” Sir Louis was obviously deeply satisfied with his son’s request. He was so heartened by the idea of a Tier 10 mecha, that he immediately agreed to Luo XiaoLou’s terms, and also guaranteed that there would be no more movements or changes to the entire planet.
After that, Sir Louis appealed to them to stay more that day, especially Luo XiaoLou. In order to explore the terrain he should stay for a night. But Luo XiaoLou decided there was nothing to be gained and proposed they leave. Although there was a deal, that bizarre spiritual power still made Luo XiaoLou uneasy.
Yuan Nuo and Luo ShaoTian were worried about the war and also preferred to go back sooner. So after Luo XiaoLou suggested leaving, the three of them said goodbye to Sir Louis.
Sir Louis had his son send the three off in his place. Locke Louis watched Luo XiaoLou’s back and narrowed his eyes slightly. And when the three boarded the spaceship, Locke suddenly looked at Luo ShaoTian suspiciously.
Only when the ship was far away, did Sir Louis walk out. He looked at his son Locke, and asked suspiciously, “You plan to choose the Prince Consort?”
“Yes. According to the trial, he barely qualified. But we’ll see who comes first, him or Shao Rong. I’m still considering it.” Locke nodded, and then said with a puzzled expression. “But that Luo ShaoTian…”
Sir Louis asked, “What’s wrong with him?”
“I hope my senses are wrong.” Locke rubbed his chin and whispered.
The author has something to say.
Thank you to all of you who have left comments and support, and to the readers who have been with mecha for so long, take a bow.
I wish you all a happy eleventh month holiday – probably this slag because did not go out to play and began to incite sadness…
Although, although this time is a short small gentleman, I promise with the generosity of 125, I will work hard during the holidays….
