“Finally we can go back. This damn place is really uncomfortable. I don’t know what’s the use, but I need to have a Tier 10 mecha to change, that’s a Tier 10!” Yuan Nuo said indignantly, while he involuntarily glared at Luo ShaoTian who was impassively drinking beside him. His eyes lingered for five more seconds when he passed Luo ShaoTian’s chest.
Luo ShaoTian drank the wine in his glass, shook his head, and then showed a meaningful smile. Yuan Nuo was about to continue to chatter, but found Luo ShaoTian put the glass down on the table, got up and walked out.
Moreover, even from this angle, he could still see the smile on Luo ShaoTian’s face. It lasted a little too long, and it looked strange.
“Hey, what are you doing?” Yuan Nuo raised his voice and shouted.
The more he looked at Luo ShaoTian’s face the more that bizarre smile was. Also, because his back was to Yuan Nuo, he couldn’t see it but Luo ShaoTian’s eyes were slowly turning silver.
When Yuan Nuo spoke, Luo ShaoTian stopped at the door. Only after a while did he reply in a low voice, “I’ll go out and take a look.” After saying that, he left in long strides, without waiting for Yuan Nuo to ask further questions.
Take a look? What was there to see? What couldn’t be seen on the cockpit controls? Yuan Nou didn’t say anything directly, but, thinking of the way to the cockpit had been guarded by Luo ShaoTian, Yuan Nuo grunted, and turned his head to look at the monitor.
The course was correct, there was no deviation, and the equipment data in the ship wasn’t abnormal. Yuan Nuo stared for a while, then turned his head towards the storage box that was held in the robot’s hand.
That was food brought by Luo XiaoLou. Yuan Nuo deliberately picked up a few as snacks. Well, it seems to be made according to the hobby of his brother, Luo XiaoLou couldn’t be more virtuous.
Yuan Nuo threw the fried shrimp into his mouth while he swept his eyes across the monitor. Thirty-six small screens showed the different areas inside the ship. Yuan Nuo glanced at it and picked up a shrimp with the intention of continuing to eat, then suddenly turned his head again and stared at a small screen in the upper left.
With a slight movement of his finger, the screen instantly presented a three-dimensional picture in front of him.
It was Luo ShaoTian, who moved forward not too fast or too slow, as he turned left at the end of the passage then continued to walk forward.
Yuan Nuo frowned. He suddenly felt that something wasn’t quite right. Luo ShaoTian gave him the wrong feeling, even though he only saw his back. Moreover, Luo ShaoTian’s movements were too uniform, as if every step was calculated, just like a puppet.
Yes! Luo ShaoTian, even if he was aloof, normally had an openness about his body language. Also the direction Luo ShaoTian was heading was Luo XiaoLou’s room.
Yuan Nuo thought about it and suddenly realized he had a chance. Casually, he stuffed the shrimp into his mouth and ran for the door.
Once he left the cockpit, a faint silver figure flashed on the monitor. The screen couldn’t clearly display it before it disappeared from the camera.
Yuan Nuo gasped, pushed open the closed door of the room. He saw that Luo ShaoTian was standing next to Luo XiaoLou, who was sleeping like a dead pig, completely unconscious.
Yuan Nuo simply wanted to shake Luo XiaoLou awake to question him. How could someone be so slow to this degree? People are barging in and standing next to the bed and he still doesn’t notice? Before he met his brother, how did he manage to grow so big?
At this moment, Yuan Nuo saw Luo ShaoTian was reaching out to the bed but he couldn’t see that Luo ShaoTian’s eyes had turned completely silver.
Yuan Nuo didn’t think much about it, just put a hand on Luo ShaoTian’s shoulder. “What are you doing?”
In fact, he would have liked to ask what was wrong with him. Even when he was standing in front of this heel, he still felt Luo ShaoTian wasn’t acting normal.
The moment Yuan Nuo’s hand touched Luo ShaoTian’s shoulder, Luo ShaoTian’s silver eyes flashed and returned to their original color. A faint light also flashed on his chest and then disappeared without a trace.
Luo ShaoTian didn’t pay attention to the pressure on his shoulder. His hand still moved to cover Luo XiaoLou’s forehead, then he whispered, “He has a fever.”
Yuan Nuo gave a sideways glance at Luo ShaoTian. The person in front of him wasn’t at all abnormal, as if just now had been all an illusion. He hurriedly looked down again at the person on the bed. He found that Luo XiaoLou, who had run back to the room to sleep after they returned, really was looking a little ill.
Yuan Nuo was at a loss for words, “How did this happen? This…What should we do?”
This couldn’t be blamed on him at all. The people around Yuan Nuo could get injured, they might have a small wound when training accidentally. The Yuan family’s health was very good. Colds and fevers. Such minor problems, he simply hadn’t encountered.
Luo ShaoTian was also in a daze. He hesitated for a moment, then he pulled the quilt over Luo XiaoLou. He leaned over him and said to Yuan Nuo, “You. First bring the diagnostic instrument.”
Yuan Nuo was about to ask where it was, when the adjacent door suddenly opened, and a voice called out gleefully, “Hey, look what I got! You’re going to be so surprised!”
After seeing all three people in the room, 125 quickly put the round fruit in his hand away without a trace. He coughed softly, “What are you guys doing here?”
This was his master’s room right?
Yuan Nuo and Luo ShaoTian glanced at each other. Yuan Nuo said in disbelief, “What the hell is he doing raising such a thing?”
Luo ShaoTian, with the same doubts, shook his head slightly.
At this time, 125 ran over to Luo XiaoLou. He couldn’t wait to drag him over to lean on him, but after he compared their height and size, he sensibly gave up this move, and quickly took out an instrument from his stomach and placed it on Luo XiaoLou.
After the test, 125 quickly took out an injection and gave it to Luo XiaoLou.
Yuan Nuo and Luo ShaoTian didn’t stop him, but they were clearly skeptical of 125’s treatment.
“Put it down. Put it down quickly, just get some sleep. Poor master, I’ve been away for just a little while and this has happened. What will you do if you leave me in the future…” 125 said while getting inside the quilt. In fact it also felt a little guilty. After all, his understanding of humans was far less than that of exotic beasts. When Luo XiaoLou came back to sleep, he thought it was just the over consumption of Yuan Power. So now, in order to apologize, he decided to accompany him to sleep for a while.
Luo ShaoTian touched Luo XiaoLou’s forehead. “It seems…to have receded a little.”
Yuan Nuo wordlessly looked at the ball in the quilt, and took a few steps back.
When Luo XiaoLou woke up, he saw that Luo ShaoTian and Yuan Nuo were both in his room.
While he was still confused, Luo ShaoTian came over, took his temperature and said, “Don’t move. You’re sick. Pay attention to rest for the next two days.”
After he said that, he then verified his temperature. Luo ShaoTian looked to Luo XiaoLou, “Your fever has come down, I will bring in your lunch later.”
Luo XiaoLou looked after Luo ShaoTian once he left. Suspiciously, when he took his temperature just now, he seemed to feel Luo ShaoTian’s hand tremble slightly.
Luo ShaoTian sent lunch and didn’t stay long, which left Yuan Nuo to watch Luo XiaoLou. Although 125 volunteered to stay on line, Yuan Nuo still insisted on staying. Now that the rare Luo ShaoTian wasn’t there, he must also perform well.
For the past two days, Luo XiaoLou wasn’t able to enter his workroom because of the constant attention. Except for the first day, Luo ShaoTian rarely appeared. On the second, he came over and drove Yuan Nuo back.
That afternoon, Yuan Nuo contacted Yuan Xi, “Brother, we have two hours before we reach Tiras.”
Yuan Xi’s voice came quickly, “Mn. Move fast and be safe.”
When the three arrived at the palace, Yuan Xi rushed back from the military department. Yuan Nuo waited to meet him before he told Yuan Xi about Luo XiaoLou’s illness. Yuan Xi looked twice at Luo XiaoLou as he walked down. Then, he pulled the person to his side, told Yuan Nuo and Luo ShaoTian to go rest first, and tomorrow go to the military department.
When the two had left, Yuan Xi took Luo XiaoLou towards their room.
When they reached the room, and out of the sight of unrelated people, Yuan Xi picked up Luo XiaoLou and headed to the bed.
Luo XiaoLou said in embarrassment, “I’m already fine.” The mouth said so, but the heart was brilliant, and reveled in Yuan Xi’s rare concern.
“Mn, I can see that you’ve gained a few pounds.” Yuan Xi said with a hum. Then he put Luo XiaoLou on the bed and pressed down. His dark eyes looked deeply at Luo XiaoLou.
Luo XiaoLou’s face reddened. These days, in addition to sleeping he was eating, and his appetite was quite good.
Yuan Xi’s hand touched Luo XiaoLou’s body to make sure his person was intact before he asked, “Tell me what’s going on.”
Luo XiaoLou then related what happened to them on the Louis planet. Yuan Xi held his hand tightly. “Tier 10 mecha. You really dared to promise that. What if, by then, you haven’t made it? You are simply gambling with your life.” To Yuan Xi, what was most important was Luo XiaoLou’s bloodline meant he couldn’t live past thirty years old.
“I’ve investigated. Sir Louis is very stingy and never takes a loss. If I refuse, I’m afraid I won’t ever have a chance to get that castle in my life.” Luo XiaoLou sighed and said softly. Of course he knew exactly how difficult a Tier 10 mecha would be. Before he took the source fruit he couldn’t even complete a Tier 8 mecha. Now, though he hadn’t tried it yet, a Tier 8 might be possible, but a Tier 10 mecha, definitely was not.
“Ask your master tomorrow, and see if a few masters can help.” Yuan Xi said after a few seconds of silence.
Luo XiaoLou nodded. After that, Yuan Xi didn’t move for half a day. Luo XiaoLou was surprised and raised his head, only to find that Yuan Xi had fallen asleep on his body. There was a faint greenish tinge under his eyes, which made it clear that Yuan Xi hadn’t rested properly in the past few days since he left.
Luo XiaoLou pulled the quilt over, covered the two of them up, then hugged Yuan Xi and slept with him.
The next day, after Luo XiaoLou arrived at the military headquarters with Yuan Xi, he learned that during the time they had been away, something big had happened to both the Empire and Federation.
The octopus people suddenly attacked in a big way, and in unimaginable numbers. Even if the octopus people were powerful in reproduction, such a huge and strong army still shocked the humans. It wasn’t at all in line with what they had scouted before.
The defense of the imperial army was already very strained, and with this sudden attack, it was defeated. And even worse, the octopus people had then surrounded the planet with the intention of wiping out the entire army in one fell swoop.
“So what happened to…afterwards?” Luo XiaoLou asked with difficulty.
“Later, someone came to help.” Yuan Xi glanced at Luo XiaoLou, “He will soon arrive at Imperial Capital, and you’ll see him.”
