Yuan Xi and Luo XiaoLou arrived back at Imperial Capital. Feng JiaLing and Yuan Lie took the time to wait for them at the palace. Yuan Che was still at the front line, and they heard he would be back in a week.
Feng JiaLing looked at them with a smile. “It’s good to come back safely.”
Yuan Lie, on the other hand, first nodded to Yuan Xi and said, “You handled the matter of the secondary civilization very well. I will send the Foreign Ministry over for later cooperation with Attius.” Then another, slightly disgusted, glanced at Luo XiaoLou, as he said two sentences. “You are not a warrior, learn when to compete with people. Admitting defeat is to say a couple of words, it’s no more than the loss of face of the original family.”
Luo XiaoLou’s face turned red. Feng JiaLing slanted Yuan Lie glance, and black tea was pushed into Yuan Lie’s hand. Then he turned to Luo XiaoLou and said, “He is just worried about you, and we also missed you. Especially the family. They haven’t cooked for a long time. ” At the end of the sentence, His Majesty Feng JiaLing’s voice had taken on a hint of melancholy.
Yuan Lie’s tea hadn’t even reached his mouth before he gave a rare smile. “No, dear, the soup you made two days ago was delicious. We can try it again when they’re all gone.”
Luo XiaoLou lowered his head and stifled a smile. For the first time since he came over here, he experienced care from his elders. Besides, he found out long ago that he liked Yuan Xi’s parents. Not only were they not the evil in-laws that 125 envisioned, who would always make things difficult for their son’s partner, but they also took care of him.
For Yuan Xi, on the other hand, the corners of his mouth trembled. Ever since he had eaten the rice cooked by Luo XiaoLou, he had been afraid to accept his mother’s good intentions. The most amazing thing was that no matter what the soup tasted like, his father finished it calmly every time and praised it highly. Which encouraged his mother to make it more often by the way. That was probably the reason why his mother’s soup had improved a lot.
“You guys go down to rest after dinner. It will be very busy starting tomorrow,” Feng JiaLing said.
Luo XiaoLou and Yuan Xi were on their way back to their room, when Yuan Xi was stopped by two attendants in blue uniforms. Yuan Xi frowned, turned to Luo XiaoLou, and said that he would return later.
Luo XiaoLou nodded and went back by himself. He was unaware of the flash at his neck. Then a dark green figure landed sharply on the ground, and trotted in pursuit of Yuan Xi.
Yuan Xi entered the underground level of the royal palace, where, although not as magnificent and solemn as the above, there was more of an imposing aura. He walked ahead, followed by the two retainers, and 125. After the inevitable discovery by the guards when he entered, he moved stiffly behind Yuan Xi’s feet, trying to look as if he was just a household robot.
After he passed a laboratory and saw it filled with disassembled robots, 125’s body stiffened and he leapt directly into Yuan Xi’s pocket at a shady corner.
Yuan Xi’s footsteps paused for a moment. He glanced down at the quiet and motionless blue necklace in his pocket, frowned slightly, and continued to walk forward. The two attendants behind him looked at each other suspiciously, found nothing unusual, and moved forward again with Yuan Xi.
After another two minutes, Yuan Xi walked to a white door with a symmetrical symbol drawn on it in smooth lines, like two dragons coiled and entwined together. He pressed his hand on the scanner to the side of the door, and the white door opened silently.
The two attendants didn’t follow him in, and stayed on either side of the door.
The people in the room stood up as Yuan Xi entered. After a slight bow, an older man spoke first. “Your Highness. I invited you here this time to ask if you have considered the matter of the continuation of the royal family’s offspring. The hospital has already asked the two majesties. They think it is a bit early, but there are special circumstances to consider, so we would like to ask Your Highness and His Royal Highness the Prince Consort what you think. Although you have been rejecting us, even with the previous preparations, it will take a long time…”
Yuan Xi listened intently, heard the last sentence, frowned, and slowly said, “Good. We can breed our offspring.”
The ten people in the room were obviously ready to bitterly persuade Yuan Xi, because on previous occasions, the proposal had been flatly rejected by the grumpy prince.
Yuan Xi’s painful agreement stunned the people in the room at first, then the old man was immediately excited. “Your Highness! You have finally agreed! Don’t worry, we will definitely choose the best genetic heritage of you and His Royal Highness Prince Consort–“
Yuan Xi interrupted the old man, with seemingly little interest. “That isn’t necessary. However, during the cultivation process, whatever happens, you have to inform me at the first moment.” If there was a small Luo XiaoLou, like a well-behaved little doll, his parents would definitely love him very much. Then, they may accept the identity of Luo XiaoLou as an exotic beast.
“Of course. Without the consent of you and His Highness the Prince Consort, we will not give the information to anyone.” The old man immediately said, with a slight red tinge on his face because of his excitement.
However, he was not the only one who was excited. Not only the whole room, but also 125 in Yuan Xi’s pocket. After Yuan Xi turned around and left, 125 couldn’t wait to go back and discuss it with those old men, and he would be happy to share the most advanced offspring reproduction technology of the exotic beast with them.
However, he tried to think carefully, and decided to go back and make a plan for a better future.
Yuan Xi went back and told Luo XiaoLou, who was dumbfounded that he was going to be a father. Yuan Xi understood and approached him. He circled the other’s waist to embrace Luo XiaoLou. “Don’t worry, he won’t take up too much of our time. There will be someone to watch him.”
That night, Luo Xiao Lou had a nightmare. He dreamed that his home was a mess. Yuan Xi was waiting for breakfast in the dining room, and he had a small ball in his arms waiting to be fed. Luo Xiaolou was annoyed by the squeaking cry, and had to get up. However, he was shocked to find that a small white haired animal was lying in his arms.
Awakened in the middle of the night, Yuan Xi mumbled unhappily and hugged him closer.
Luo XiaoLou no longer dared to think about it. He just decided to talk about it when the time came. The child, or something more scary…well, 125 would know.
The next day, Yuan Xi and Luo XiaoLou went to the military headquarters together.
Yuan Xi sent someone to escort Luo XiaoLou to the mecha research and development department, where his master and the other master, Master Hebrew, remained. Luo XiaoLou invited the two masters and Lieutenant General Hatton to come over. “Please Master Yan, Master Hebrew, and Lieutenant General Hatton. When I went on this trip to Telles I brought back something.” After he said that, Luo XiaoLou brought out the Super Quenching Gold Liquid.
Master Yan unceremoniously grabbed his young apprentice’s item and peeked in with his Spiritual Power. Master Hebrew gave him a look, and although his face was disdainful, he took a few steps closer.
Lieutenant General Hatton, however, asked Luo XiaoLou directly, “Oh? Brought it back from a secondary civilization? I wonder what the function of the liquid contained in this bottle is?”
“It’s role is to improve the success rate of mecha. Especially the success rate of Tier 8, 9, and 10 mecha.” Luo XiaoLou said.
When he saw the three old men’s rounded eyes, Luo XiaoLou added, “However, I don’t have much of this stuff, only five bottles, which I bought to make a Tier 10 mecha, and I probably only have one bottle that can be taken out for research by the R&D department.”
Lieutenant General Hatton nodded joyfully. “One bottle. It’s enough, enough. It’s such a large bottle.” If the formula could really be researched, even if they only managed a lower function, it would significantly improve the success rate of the empire’s Tier, 7 and 8 mecha, which was a huge help for the upcoming war.
Master Yan looked seriously at Luo XiaoLou. “You really intend to try a Tier 10 mecha?” His usually full of vitality voice, began to tremble.
Luo XiaoLou smiled. “Of course. Everything is ready but the east wind.”
Master Yan patted Luo XiaoLou’s shoulder hard. He didn’t say anything, just smiled gratefully.
It was Master Hebrew who praised Luo XiaoLou in front of Master Yan, “Good boy. You have ambition. Much better than your master or this old man.”
Luo XiaoLou’s face turned red. “Master Hebrew, don’t say that. I am worse than both masters by a hundred thousand miles. I still want to ask Master Yan to help me with the Tier 10 mecha design drawings. The bottom of my heart is not firm, and Super Quenching Gold Liquid is too rare. I don’t have much room for error.”
“Good.” Master Yan seemed even more anxious than Luo XiaoLou, and immediately wanted to take Luo XiaoLou to find a workroom and study the design. He walked two steps, then turned back to Master Hebrew and said, “Old man, you also come over. Help my apprentice to see.”
Master Hebrew smiled and walked over without any hesitation. Master Yan was obviously a little uncomfortable since the two didn’t mix well. He glared at Master Hebrew, but the corners of his mouth moved.
Luo XiaoLou thought of the Golden Bi Grass placed in the storage box. He stopped and then took it out of the box. The Golden Bi Grass had been placed in a petri dish, and it was a turquoise color that was exceptionally lovely.
“Lieutenant General, sir. This is the Golden Bi Grass. The most important raw material for the Super Quenching Gold Liquid is now in your hands. It’s not yet mature, so you should research how to cultivate it to maturity. It will be of great use when you research the Super Gold Quenching Liquid.” Luo XiaoLou said, and handed the Golden Bi Grass to Lieutenant General Hatton.
Lieutenant General Hatton’s eyes had already narrowed to a smile. “His Highness the Prince Consort has been a great help this time. You not only brought back the Super Quenching Gold Liquid, but also the raw materials. Telles is really generous.”
Luo XiaoLou was silent for a moment, embarrassed to explain that everything was brought back secretly.
When they arrived at the workroom, Luo XiaoLou took out the design that he had worked on for a long time over the past few days. He prepared three copies, and after he handed them to Master Yan and Master Hebrew, he waited nervously on the sidelines.
The two masters studied them intently, and occasionally exchanged drawings.
At last, the two masters discussed and made changes for Luo XiaoLou, who thanked them profusely. He knew that the revised plan was more suitable.
Master Hebrew looked at the heartfelt admiration in Luo XiaoLou’s eyes, and was jealous of his old rival’s good disciple. He said with a smile, “Don’t envy us. We old guys have studied this for many years, of course there is more experience. However, there are many points of view. We already cannot compare with you young people. What you do in the design drawings…it’s obvious that you have more aura than we do. Especially this one.”
As he said that, Master Hebrew selected a drawing out.
Luo XiaoLou stretched his head to take a look, and his face reddened. It was the design for Yuan Xi. He was familiar with Yuan Xi beyond words, and had made him a design drawing that even he, himself, admitted was the one he was most satisfied with.
“When will you start?” Master Yan asked.
“Since Master Hebrew and Master Yan have already helped to change the design, I plan to start tomorrow.” Luo XiaoLou said. In order to save Li Mo, he had been preparing for a long time. Of course the sooner the better. His exotic beast problem was still waiting for him to solve. This was probably the only thing he could do as an exotic beast.
“Okay, I’ll let Shen Yuan go over and help you with the materials,” Master Yan said.
“Well, that Mu Chen kid came back too. I’ll contact him later,” Master Hebrew said.
