From the door to the ground below, the path went lower and lower as it formed a huge ring. But when they came to the end of the road at the bottom, a huge black thing emerged. It bulged slightly upward, like an upside-down bowl, and was more than two people high.
Moreover, the black thing occasionally leapt over the white light. What really made their skin tingle was that on the surface of the black object, from time to time, were long, thin bumps that wriggled a few times, then disappeared, like tentacles attached to the dome.
Luo Xiaolou’s heart was full of agitation. He couldn’t explain why he felt like this, or what was calling him. Luo Xiaolou couldn’t help but walk forward, but within a few steps, his hand was caught tight.
He looked back and saw Yuan Xi was staring at him. “What are you doing?”
Luo XiaoLou gazed at him with a confused expression. “I. I’m not sure…I just want to go over and take a look.”
Yuan Xi clutched Luo XiaoLou’s hand, then carelessly pulled a golden crest off his shoulder, and tossed it toward the black dome. With the lighting as bright as day, the two clearly saw that the metal crest hadn’t yet touched the surface of the black thing when it turned into liquid, then vaporized and disappeared at a speed visible to the naked eye.
Luo XiaoLou opened his mouth wide for half a day before he said, with a head full of cold sweat, “What is that?”
Yuan Xi shook his head and looked coldly at the ugly dome whose surface kept writhing. “It’s not clear, but I’m certain that this should be the place we are looking for.”
At that moment, 125’s choked voice suddenly emerged. “I. I know! This is my brother’s shield. Oh my god, Master and my brother are here! How…what to do? I’m so excited! I…what are you doing? Let go of me!”
125’s paws paddled in mid-air, but his tail was being held tight by Yuan Xi, so finally he could only turn his pleading eyes to his fosterer.
Luo XiaoLou didn’t have the heart to respond to 125’s signals at all, and simply asked, “Are you saying that your brother made this thing?”
125 nodded hard and said proudly, “Of course. He’s the only one in the whole Blue Origin Star that can do it. Though it does look a little strange now.”
Yuan Xi grunted. He wasn’t too happy to hear anything about the exotic beasts. It would only make Luo XiaoLou lean more towards those beasts. He threw 125 to the ground. “Go. Open it.”
125 stared at Yuan Xi with round eyes, incredulous. “I…I?!”
Yuan Xi looked at him impatiently. “Aren’t you both exotic beast mecha?”
125 jumped up, and pointed one paw at Yuan Xi. “Oh my god, how can we be the same? That is my brother. My brother, you know, is an exotic beast mecha with a unique existence. In every mecha test, my brother was in the top three. Even some exotic beasts weren’t my brother’s opponent. He is the hero of the Blue Origin Star. Even in the Planet Council, there is a place for my brother…” 125’s voice weakened under Yuan Xi’s calm as water gaze. Stiffly and slowly, he retracted the outstretched middle finger, and then scratched his head in an unnatural way. God, it must have just been an AI circuit. A terrible mistake occurred. He actually dared to point at Yuan Xi to speak…
Luo XiaoLou looked at 125 in surprise. He was unable to imagine that 125’s brother could be powerful to that extent, and couldn’t help but have a touch of curiosity. “What is your brother’s name?”
125 took small steps towards Luo XiaoLou’s side to make sure he was safe, before he answered, “Ahem. This…his name is somewhat similar to mine. In fact, I named myself in accordance with his name. He is called 123. Combat form, Maxim. Alias, Cold Dazzle. This last one I gave to him. I assure you I will also reach the height of my brother!” At the end of the day, 125 didn’t forget to praise himself.
Luo XiaoLou’s mouth quivered. Cold Dazzle. That really sounded like a name 125 gave.
“It seems that it can’t be counted on.” Yuan Xi stated affirmatively from behind him. “You wait here. I’ll go over and take a look.”
Luo XiaoLou looked at the black dome. There was a bad feeling in his heart. He panicked and pulled Yuan Xi’s hand. “Wait, honey, don’t go over there. It’s too dangerous. I can try with spiritual power.”
Yuan Xi nodded and moved to stand in front of Luo XiaoLou, as he held his energy sword in his hand. A trace of Yuan Power slowly moved towards the black sphere. It paused for a moment when it met the surface of the sphere, then was suddenly pulled in. Luo XiaoLou was startled. Then the situation inside the black dome was visible to him.
After he entered the interior, Luo XiaoLou realized that what emerged from the bottom of the ring was only a small section of a sphere. From below it was an even larger sphere, so large that the entire Louis Castle was tiny in comparison. In the middle of that sphere of emptiness lay a huge white beast, its body balled together, its head placed inside the long white hair of its shoulders. Its body emitted a white fluorescence that was both dazzling and gorgeous.
This was…an image from Li Mo.
Luo XiaoLou felt a burst of excitement. He just wanted to wake up the exotic beast, but the scene in the black sphere suddenly changed. The white lonely beast disappeared, the entire sphere was dark, but in between white electric light flashes, he could see an animal with huge tentacles in the middle, with two purple and black eyes that stared malevolently at Luo XiaoLou.
Luo XiaoLou trembled, if the beast form of Li Mo made him involuntarily want to worship, the monster made him tremble. This was to meet a natural enemy.
Then, the monster’s tentacle fiercely flew towards him.
Luo XiaoLou’s Yuan Power immediately retreated, but it wasn’t easy to get out. The black sphere actually began to absorb his Yuan Power at a speed not much slower than when he made his Tier 10 mecha.
At the same time, Luo XiaoLou moved in front of Yuan Xi. He found that the writhing tentacles on the surface of the sphere stopped moving for a second, then several tentacles broke out of the body,and sent a lightning-fast attack in their direction.
The anxious 125 was momentarily unaware of being rolled up, as a tentacle attacked Luo XiaoLou. Yuan Xi was busy guarding Luo XiaoLou and there was no time to save 125. If he were to go after 125, Luo XiaoLou would be in danger. At this moment, even if he moved Luo XiaoLou, there was a degree of danger for him since he was completely concentrated as he used his Yuan Power.
Yuan Xi looked coldly at those tentacles. The corners of his mouth curled up sarcastically. The blue and white energy sword suddenly emitted a dazzling flame, then a faint shadow moved and the blue and white light suddenly turned into a straight line more than ten meters long. The light pushed forward from Yuan Xi’s body. The tentacles that encountered the blue line hesitated for a fraction of a second before they cowered backwards, but they didn’t have enough time to retreat before they were shredded into pieces.
It was the Avert parallel step. Everywhere the blue line reached was the track Yuan Xi had moved through. But he was so fast that even in the moment the straight line went out, Yuan Xi appeared to have been blocking Luo XiaoLou and never left.
A wretched 125 jumped up from the ground, viciously stepped on the nearest broken chunks for a few feet, then ran towards Yuan Xi. Oh, oh, oh! This is…the master’s man should have the posture to protect the master, kill the enemy, and also protect the master’s home robot! But…he forgave Yuan Xi! He admits that Yuan Xi is his other master!
Luo XiaoLou was sweating profusely, and was concentrating on withdrawing his Yuan Power, little by little.
At this time, a clear and calm voice suddenly reached his ears. [Don’t retreat, you have no way back.]
