The moment Luo XiaoLou got up, Xia Zuo tugged at Luo XiaoLou. “Wait, Your Highness. You can’t just go up there.”
Xia Zuo coldly looked at the two people in the middle. Even he felt that Yafir was deliberately hanging that dagger to provoke His Highness, Luo XiaoLou. But at least for now, they couldn’t fall for the Rhys family’s provocation since His Highness, Yuan Xi, was still negotiating terms with Telles.
Luo XiaoLou quickly sobered up, and he sat down silently. He stared angrily at the dagger and pondered how to get the beloved object back. At that moment, he was deeply convinced that 125’s robbery was a good idea…
Xiao Zuo was watching Luo XiaoLou, who didn’t move.
Yafir pulled Su Lan to the location of the Rhys family, but before Su Lan was seated, she also brought Su Lan to the top to see the Green King.
Su Lan blushed slightly. The same high position and power, His Majesty the Green King, was much younger and more handsome than the Emperor. For those who came from a first level civilization, it was a great honor to say a few words to His Majesty the Green King. She took a deep breath and bent down.
The people of the other first level civilizations were different. They also wanted to climb up with a second level civilization, and this unknown Federation just appeared and actually got an opportunity so easily…the others certainly had their own thoughts in their hearts.
The Green King glanced briefly at the people in front of him, nodded, and said something casually. The attitude and posture were offhand, but Su Lan’s face already showed obvious joy. She bowed again before following Yafir back to the seat of the Rhys family.
By this time, the crowd had grown. Not long after, the waiters brought in a new batch of drinks.
The Green King raised his hand slightly, and the originally noisy hall abruptly quieted.
The Green King stood up, held a wine glass in his hand, and said elegantly, “Welcome to Telles. Those who can come here will be the ones who are favored by the god Tishusha. At the same time, I hope that this gathering of civilizations will go perfectly and that all civilizations will develop together.”
God Tishusha was the main god of the Telles faith, and had a lofty position in this second level civilization empire. As soon as the Green King’s words fell, the red-haired youth next to him also smiled, “His Excellency the Green King is right. Perhaps our star field will soon see the emergence of third level civilizations and more second level civilizations.”
The young man’s words startled the crowd, then their eyes began to glow.
Civilizations were certainly always moving forward, but, indeed, the progression was extremely slow. So, when a second level civilization like Attius dared to say so, the two second level civilizations in this star field would probably be promoted to third level civilizations. Then, when the time came, if there was no competition, maybe they would foster some second level civilizations.
The hall was bustling like never before, and many people were scrambling to toast and talk to the Telles and Attius people.
At this time, Yafir looked back at the hall, smiled and stood up. She raised her voice and said, “Gentlemen. Today’s grand party is a bit monotonous without a program to cheer up.”
Now the crowd turned their attention to her. Yafir only gave a slight smile, eyebrows and eyes charming and elegant, and continued, “We Telles want to advocate for power, and warriors are always the most popular. Why don’t we find two people to have a competition, and also to cheer everyone up? I’ve heard that His Highness the Prince Consort of the An Empire is both a fabricator and a mecha pilot, a known all-rounder.” Finally, Yafir turned her head to look at the Green King and said in a soft voice, “Why don’t you have him compete with the number one warrior under me, and let us all see the physical skills of the An Empire. What do you think, Your Highness, The Green King?”
Xia Zuo hadn’t expected that after he held down Luo XiaoLou when he was about to get angry, that the woman would not relent in coming to the door.
Xia Zuo held the wine glass in his hand a little too hard, and caused the glass to slightly deform. This kind of proposal, if agreed to. Prince Consort Luo XiaoLou’s identity would be ridiculed. If not agreed to, then he was afraid that there will be people who would denigrate the Prince Consort of An Empire as cowardly and incompetent, and even feel that the An Empire was weak and deceivable.
Luo XiaoLou was also stunned. He hadn’t expected Yafir would do such a thing. When Yafir made the proposal, most of the people in the hall looked over to him, including The Green King at the top, although he just swept him with a faint glance, then withdrew his eyes.
Luo XiaoLou had met with the Green King once, and had a short encounter, but in this situation and from such a distance, the Green King might not even recognize him.
The Green King withdrew his gaze and said, “The hall is not a big location. The competition is not enjoyable. Forget it.” His voice wasn’t loud, but carried an inexplicable pressure. Even Luo XiaoLou, who was sitting in the corner, heard it clearly.
Yafir froze, and so did the people of the first level civilizations who were waiting to see what was going on. Yafir, as the master, was obviously trying to suppress that tiny first level civilization’s Prince Consort, which was not a bad thing for them and was commonplace. But to have His Highness the Green King speak for him seemed a bit odd.
Not enough room in the hall? That was a joke. But even if it was a joke, no one dared to confront the Green King.
Yafir was surprised, but she immediately smiled and said, “Your Highness is extremely right. I forgot about this.” With a twinkle in her eye, she said tentatively, “Why don’t we compete with spirit-based power? I heard that His Highness Prince Consort’s Spiritual Power is also particularly outstanding.”
Everyone knew that the Spiritual Power competition couldn’t take up much space.
Now that the An Empire’s Yuan Xi had made it clear that they wouldn’t accept the Rhys family’s solicitation, it would be very difficult to make them attach to Telles. Now was a favorable time to suppress the An Empire, and she wasn’t willing to give up.
The Green King looked at Yafir carelessly. The coldness in his dark eyes startled Yafir. She was about to withdraw her proposition, when a voice below startled her. “This is a good proposal.”
Green King’s eyes narrowed and he looked towards Luo XiaoLou.
Luo XiaoLou was in white clothes. The corners of his cuffs were threaded with gold thread, and his soft black hair was down. He looked like a handsome, but powerless, noble son. One couldn’t deny that he was also very attractive.
The Green King looked at Luo XiaoLou, raised his eyebrows, and didn’t speak.
Luo XiaoLou then said, “Your Highness. Since Miss Yafir is so eager to see me entertain people, I think I can give it a try. However, I hope Miss Yafir can join me to cheer everyone up, and just as Miss Yafir requested, we will use spirit-based power to compete.”
The Green King swept a glance at Yafir beside him, and the corners of his mouth curled up slightly.
Yafir was already so furious that her face was red. Her older brother, Duke Moga, was the head of the Rhys family, one of the two great families of the Empire. She, herself, was outstanding in looks, held in high regard even in the whole Telles. Now, this Prince Consort, who came from a just-discovered, first level civilization, dared to embarrass her in public. That really made her extremely angry.
Yafir ignored her family’s people beside her and stared at Luo XiaoLou, as she said fiercely, “Don’t blame me for your own death! I was going to let you compete with my men. That was to spare you. They can’t compare with me. Since you dare to challenge me, I’ll make it up to you. I just hope that when the time comes, you won’t regret it.”
The Green King shot a glance at the two and said, “Good. Then let’s begin.”
“Wait a minute. Since this is a competition, there must be a win or loss. There is no point in having a competition without a prize,” Luo XiaoLou said suddenly. Then he turned to look at Yafir. “If I win, I want the dagger.”
When Yafir realized Luo XiaoLou’s intentions in challenging her, her face became even more gloomy. She sneered, “You won’t have that chance, but if I win, you and your prince, together, apologize to me for your rudeness.”
Luo XiaoLou raised his eyebrows. “That won’t do. It has to be fair. If you lose, you don’t have the equivalent status to apologize to me and Yuan Xi.” No matter how great Duke Moga’s power was, in Luo XiaoLou’s eyes, there was no way to compare him with an heir to the empire, and Yafir certainly didn’t have the guts to ask for the Green King or the Emperor to apologize for her.
Yafir’s face went blue and white. She gritted her teeth, jumped from the stage and landed directly in front of Luo XiaoLou. She was in all plain white clothes that slowly floated up. Her left hand gently moved, and a red whip gradually appeared in her hand.
Luo XiaoLou repeated what he had done in Louis Castle, and condensed power into a line around his body. But when he saw the whip in Yafir’s hand, his heart suddenly moved. He remembered that once before, he’d seen Cyril use spiritual power and condensed it into a star map. So, spiritual power could be formed into an entity…
The people of the other first level civilizations watched the two people in the middle with lively minds. The Green King at the top and another guest of the second level civilization looked down with a smirk.
Luo XiaoLou wasn’t affected by these sights. His full attention was concentrated on his left hand.
Then, under the crowd’s astonished eyes, an ice-like, crystal clear, short sword appeared in his hand.
Yafir saw the short sword, and was surprised and a little disbelieving. This first level civilization didn’t have any amount of Spiritual Power combat methods, so she really hadn’t expected Luo XiaoLou to actually have a Spiritual weapon. It wasn’t easy to get a Spiritual weapon. Her weapon was formed with the help of a master. The difference between Spiritual weapons and other weapons was that ordinary defenses had no resistance to the attack of Spiritual weapons. Their amount of Spiritual Power could directly penetrate objects to cause damage to the human body.
Yafir looked at the short sword for a few seconds with a complicated gaze, then grunted again. She wasn’t just any spiritual warrior. At the thought of this, she moved and a white shadow quickly approached Luo XiaoLou.
The moment Yafir’s whip neared, Luo XiaoLou’s left hand lifted up.
Xia Zuo’s face changed. He decided that the moment Luo XiaoLou was in danger, he would immediately go up and save him.
Although Su Lan had a worried expression, her eyes also held a faint joy. Since she couldn’t teach Luo XiaoLou a lesson, it was only right to borrow the hands of this second level civilization to teach him a lesson. Moreover, to look at the movements of the two, Luo XiaoLou wasn’t Yafir’s opponent.
Su Lan wasn’t the only one who could see this. Others also understood, and some even closed their eyes when the whip reached Luo XiaoLou’s head. However, the expected scream didn’t appear. Yafir was stopped three steps away from Luo XiaoLou. Her face was red and she couldn’t move another step.
The Spiritual warriors looked closely before they realized that while the dagger in Luo XiaoLou’s left hand blocked the whip, a thin white line in his right hand had firmly trapped Yafir a meter away.
Yafir struggled hard to get out. Although, now they both couldn’t move and so couldn’t be divided into winners and losers, but she said something big, and was even more humiliated. Just then, Yafir heard people shouting in the room. She looked up in surprise, only to find everyone was gazing at her waist.
Yafir looked down and her face changed.
The strap of the dagger that hung from her waist had broken off, and the dagger was moving readily in the direction of Luo XiaoLou.
Now, even she could see that Luo XiaoLou’s Spiritual Power wasn’t as weak as she thought. Moreover, not only was his Spiritual Power unfathomable, his Spiritual Power control was also precise to a frightening degree.
The invisible edge of the short sword could even extend to her side and cut the strap the dagger was hanging from. In other words, if Luo XiaoLou had made a move against her, she would have been injured by now.
Luo XiaoLou raised his hand, and took the dagger that had reached him into his grasp, then looked up at Yafir. “You lost.”
Yafir froze, dumbfounded and unable to speak. Luo XiaoLou turned around and walked back. As soon as he let go of his power, Yafir with a face full of shame and anger, a little under the stage, suddenly raised her hand with the whip to Luo XiaoLou’s back.
The crowd now held Luo XiaoLou, and this never appeared before first level civilization, in admiration, and had a few good feelings. When they saw Yafir’s action, although the people weren’t comfortable saying anything because of her status, they silently felt in their hearts that since she took the initiative to provoke others, it was too ugly to lose like this.
At this time, the Green King said indifferently, “Go back.”
Yafir’s body stiffened. With a flick of the wrist, the whip was already retracted.
As Yafir walked back, Luo XiaoLou’s left hand, which held the short sword, relaxed. If she had dared to make a move, then it was hard to say if the whip could be saved. After the competition just now, Luo XiaoLou had seen that his Spiritual Power was only slightly higher than this lady’s.
Xia Zuo waited for Luo XiaoLou to come back, then helped him to sit down. After a thorough examination, he was relieved to find that Luo XiaoLou wasn’t injured. If Luo XiaoLou was hurt, no one could keep His Highness Yuan Xi calm and face the Telles.
Until then, the hall was still quiet. At that moment, the red-haired young man from the other second level civilization, Attius, suddenly applauded. Then he smiled and said, “Interesting. The battle of spiritual power is really very interesting. My thanks to the two of you for such a wonderful performance.”
Once he said that, people started to follow his words and discuss the difference between mecha warriors and spiritual warriors, and before long, the hall became lively again.
“Your Highness, are you alright?” Xia Zuo asked worriedly as he looked at Luo XiaoLou who had his head down.
The short sword in Luo XiaoLou’s left hand slowly disappeared. Xia Zuo tsked in his heart. This Prince Consort’s power was not at all like the Prince’s claim of his having no self-protection ability. Perhaps, no matter how powerful Luo XiaoLou was, in Yuan Xi’s eyes, he was in need of protection.
Luo XiaoLou stroked the regained dagger, then suddenly looked up and smiled brightly at Xia Zuo. “Of course I’m fine. In fact, I’m very happy.”
Luo XiaoLou just found out that the dagger had been taken apart, and on the side that was taken apart revealed a line of script. “Luo XiaoLou is Yuan Xi’s. He loves Yuan Xi the most and only Yuan Xi. He will be an obedient little slave – by the master who doesn’t mind his rabbit form.”
