Yuan Xi stared at the person on the screen, the unmistakably familiar figure skillfully opened his desk, called up the electronic screen. Within a minute, he entered the correct password, then found the combat-related content and quickly flipped through it.
Luo XiaoLou’s flipping action was extremely fast, at a glance he was doing ten lines in no time, so within half an hour the desktop was once again back to its original appearance as he got up and left.
“Your Highness…” Xia Zuo’s always indifferent face had a hint of unease. Both Luo XiaoLou’s safety, and Yuan Xi’s emotions worried him.
“It’s not him. He’s not in a normal state.” Yuan Xi stared closely at the figure, and said without hesitation. His eyes were so cold they could freeze someone to death.
Yuan Xi was certain that Luo XiaoLou was being controlled, and that was what he couldn’t accept. The thought of Luo XiaoLou in danger, and that his person’s actions outside of his control; he couldn’t help his annoyed anxiety. All over his body, even his blood wasn’t able to suppress the crazy killing intent.
“So the person controlling His Highness Prince Consort is finally showing his hand,” Xia Zuo said with a frown. “I’ll send extra men to keep an eye on those people in the next few days. They’ve hardly moved since they returned from the secondary civilization. However, what’s more important now is, how do you plan to protect His Highness the Prince Consort?” Although he had privately cut out the footage from His Highness Yuan Xi’s side, it was not the same as it not existing. Moreover, even if the footage was destroyed, if the person who was controlling Luo XiaoLou intended to set him up, there would still be traces of it.
Yuan Xi coldly glanced at the screen, then suddenly stood up. “I have to go back. In addition to the last time with those people, the suspected people on this side also let people watch. Continue to trace things. Control Luo XiaoLou’s people. I absolutely cannot stay.”
Xia Zuo nodded and Yuan Xi quickly headed out. On the way back, Yuan Xi checked with the housekeeper to verify Luo XiaoLou’s condition, and was relieved to know that he had already eaten dinner and gone to sleep, so he really didn’t feel in danger.
Yuan Xi went into their bedroom and saw that Luo XiaoLou was in bed, soundly asleep.
The corners of Yuan Xi’s mouth curled up slightly and he slowly bent down. When he was about to kiss him, Yuan Xi suddenly found that Luo XiaoLou’s wrist had a flashing light. He raised his eyelids to look at Luo XiaoLou, then gently tapped the communication device that was going to vibrate, and a message popped out.
“If you do not want the identity of the exotic beast exposed, do as I say, within three days. If you do not give me a reply I will immediately disclose your identity.”
Yuan Xi was stunned. He checked to see who was the sender. It was Su Lan.
Yuan Xi’s face immediately changed and his hand clenched up. He knew what Yue Shang and Su Lan had in mind, but to threaten someone secretly, and someone in his family; this was more than he could tolerate.
He looked at the message expressionlessly for a while, then replied, “I’ll answer you in three days.”
After that, Yuan Xi got up and went to the bathroom. He returned ten minutes later, pulled Luo XiaoLou across the bed, rolled him over and pressed him underneath his own body.
Luo XiaoLou was tossed awake. The moment he saw Yuan Xi, he said in a daze, “Why are you back so late? I have something to tell you–“
“I have something to say to you, too, but let’s talk about it later,” Yuan Xi said in a low voice.
Luo XiaoLou was stunned, then asked, “Have you eaten?”
Yuan Xi’s head was almost buried in Luo XiaoLou’s neck as he licked and nibbled, but he didn’t forget to say, “I’m planning to eat.” Yuan Xi yanked Luo XiaoLou’s pajamas open, and revealed the white and tender, constantly seducing body. The sense of urgency that came from his bones was more obvious under the heavy crisis. He wanted to hold Luo XiaoLou, to prove that his lover was still with him.
Luo XiaoLou was being nibbled on by Yuan Xi, as his hand was carried downward by Yuan Xi and finally rested on the other party’s swollen erection.
While he moaned in a low voice and helped Yuan Xi to jerk up and down, Luo XiaoLou soon became emotionally moved. When Yuan Xi, not too lightly, bit the upright pink spot on Luo XiaoLou’s chest, his hands were holding on tightly.
Though he was roughly panting, Yuan Xi suddenly stifled a grunt. Luo XiaoLou was jolted into slight awareness, and said, “Honey, I’m sorry. I’m not-“
Before he finished, Yuan Xi roared with thinly veiled anger, “You just did it on purpose!” You couldn’t blame him for being angry. Luo XiaoLou was only a little hard, while he almost ejaculated directly. It was a matter of man’s dignity. Yuan Xi felt irritated and unusual.
Luo XiaoLou lay there, innocent and pitiful, as he looked at Yuan Xi, who was halfway through a temper tantrum, and just wanted to find a few soft words to coax Yuan Xi.
Yuan Xi put Luo XiaoLou on his back, and then pulled his legs across himself. His face was cloudy as he stared at Luo XiaoLou for a while. Luo XiaoLou was apprehensive. Yuan Xi bent over and his tongue continued down along Luo XiaoLou’s chest.
When he reached his belly, Luo XiaoLou couldn’t help it, and started shivering gently again. He reluctantly looked down to see Yuan Xi’s long eyelashes were hanging down in perfect shadow, as the tip of his tender red tongue moved deftly over his rather fleshy belly.
In the service of that sultry red tongue, Luo XiaoLou trembled, while a bad feeling rose in his heart. Sure enough, after two strokes, Yuan Xi suddenly opened his mouth, and bit Luo XiaoLou’s abdominal muscles.
Luo XiaoLou screamed and bent up like a shrimp, as if trying to ball himself up to avoid Yuan Xi’s sharp teeth. But Yuan Xi didn’t give him this opportunity. He quickly spread Luo XiaoLou’s legs, looked at the stunned little slave, then leaned down and took Luo XiaoLou’s penis in his mouth.
Luo XiaoLou let out a shriek. He and Yuan Xi had almost never done this before. The tingling pleasure raced through his body, and then moved to his lower abdomen.
A few minutes later, as Yuan Xi’s tongue traced the tip, Luo XiaoLou could no longer bear the raging pleasure. He shuddered and ejaculated.
As his mind went blank, he heard Yuan Xi mock him triumphantly. “That was fast.”
Luo XiaoLou, of course, didn’t know that this was Yuan Xi’s retaliation for his irritation. His face and body began to flush because of those words.
Then, Yuan Xi let him rest for a few seconds, and pressed him down tightly.
By the time Yuan Xi returned from the bathroom with Luo XiaoLou in his arms, it was already late at night. Luo XiaoLou fought the need to sleep. He half-leaned against Yuan Xi, retrieved the chip and inserted it into the access slot under Yuan Xi’s puzzled eyes.
There was a flash on the opposite wall as an electronic screen slid out and began to play the video.
After he watched the video, Yuan Xi slowly sat up straight, shocked and angry. The level of killing energy he emitted seemed to make the whole room tremble. Before Yuan Xi destroyed their bedroom, Luo XiaoLou gripped Yuan Xi’s hand and shouted in his ear, “Yuan Xi, calm down! Calm down, first! I know you’re angry, but you should at least get the truth first.”
Yuan Xi came back from his anger, and the force he was using to hold Luo XiaoLou immediately lessened. He took the tiny chip and said coldly, “I didn’t expect that tonight, there would be so many truths and surprises.” Moreover, all of them were brought about by people that his father had grown up with from childhood.
After he put away the chip, Yuan Xi turned his head to Luo XiaoLou. His black eyes looked at him for a moment, before he said, “I’m going to tell you two things. Listen to me, but don’t be in a rush. First, your identity is known by Su Lan and others. She sent a message to threaten you to help them with their work.”
Yuan Xi turned over the message she sent, then told him how he replied.
As for how Luo XiaoLou was controlled by someone, and went to his office to look through the combat plans; Yuan Xi kept that to himself. Because the Federation dared send that kind of message to threaten Luo XiaoLou, it meant that the person who controlled Luo XiaoLou wasn’t someone from the Federation.
If the person controlling Luo XiaoLou could get any information that Luo XiaoLou knew, and he told Luo XiaoLou, then they would find out, through Luo XiaoLou, that he had discovered their existence. At that point, they would definitely do something to Luo XiaoLou, and Yuan Xi wasn’t going to take any chances.
But that blackmail news alone was enough to surprise Luo XiaoLou. He looked dumbly at Yuan Xi, once again his heart was hanging because of his identity. He asked, “What should we do then?” The sense of crisis this time was stronger than any other time in the past, and right now he simply had no way to make people all over the Empire accept him as Yuan Xi did. People hadn’t yet forgotten that hatred. He would probably never be able to be with Yuan Xi again.
“The second thing is worse. Military secrets were stolen and the front line has suffered significant losses.” Yuan Xi hugged Luo XiaoLou’s trembling body hard and continued, “So now if your identity is exposed, the situation will be even worse.”
Luo XiaoLou’s face became whiter, people would assume that he was the one who stole the secrets. No one was more suitable than him. Before, when no one would have noticed, he just wanted to flee, but he simply didn’t have the body or means to manage it.
“Don’t worry, I will check it out. Moreover, with this chip, we can reveal that war had other motivations. I will use the three days I have earned to check it out.”
“What if within three days, you don’t find out?” Luo XiaoLou asked anxiously.
As he looked at the uneasiness on Luo XiaoLou’s face, Yuan Xi tried to suppress the anger and killing intent that churned in his heart and added, “I won’t let anything happen to you. Tomorrow afternoon, the military department will send someone to the front line. I will have the right people take you there with them. If we don’t find out in three days, I will send people to protect you until we find out the truth.”
Luo XiaoLou slowly nodded. He really didn’t want to leave Yuan Xi, but staying here was really not much safer than the front line.
The next day, Luo XiaoLou met the proper people Yuan Xi spoke of, Luo ShaoTian and Ling Xu. A measure of protection from the Ministry of the Military for the new strategic program.
Luo XiaoLou hardly wanted to take a step. Mr. Butler and others looked at the Prince Consort even more uneasily, as they wondered how His Highness could make such a heartless move. Even His Majesty Yuan Lie made an unprecedented effort to discourage him, but His Highness Yuan Xi was still bent on his course.
125 was busy packing luggage for Luo XiaoLou, who had no intention of helping. He frequently looked back at Yuan Xi with dissatisfaction and melancholy in his eyes. Although he had repeatedly instructed the housekeeper to keep a separate bedroom for him, he still felt the sorrow and frustration of a dowager wife and a dragging bottle.
Yuan Xi couldn’t bear to look into Luo XiaoLou’s eyes, and didn’t notice 125’s sullen ones. He turned around, took Luo ShaoTian off to the side alone and said solemnly, “I want to entrust you with one thing. But before that, I need to make sure. You don’t want this brother of yours, Luo XiaoLou, to have something happen to him, right?”
This was the first time someone had directly stated that Luo XiaoLou and Luo ShaoTian were brothers. Luo ShaoTian looked back at Yuan Xi, and said without hesitation, “Of course, I won’t let anything happen to him.”
Yuan Xi was silent for a moment, and then asked, “Whatever his status is?”
Luo ShaoTian’s answer was still decisive. “No matter what his identity is, my blood relationship with him will not change.”
Yuan Xi looked into Luo ShaoTian’s eyes, finally smiled and said, “Then, I will entrust him to you. No matter what the situation is, remember that you promised me that you will never let him get hurt at all.”
Luo ShaoTian’s eyes narrowed. His face was calm, but unusually firm. “Don’t worry. I promise, I will protect him.”
As Yuan Xi walked towards Luo XiaoLou again, Luo ShaoTian’s black eyes also looked deeply at Luo XiaoLou. But when no one was looking, the corners of his mouth curved up and there was a flash of red light in his eyes.
