After more than half a month with the exotic beasts, Luo XiaoLou’s days were almost indistinguishable. He exhausted his energy every day to save people, while Yuan Xi and Cyril accompanied him in case of emergencies. Occasionally, Li Mo would come over.
Luo XiaoLou didn’t ask, but he knew that the war had spread to the exotic beasts’ side.
The good thing was that, with Li Mo’s return, plus the exotic beasts’ saved weapons, it kept them from having trouble, and as more and more exotic beasts were rescued, they would soon become an untouchable side in the war.
Yuan Xi hadn’t told Luo XiaoLou about the current situation, but he knew that Yuan Xi was in contact with the Empire. Moreover, Luo XiaoLou also spotted Li Mo and Yuan Xi talking a few times.
Luo XiaoLou pretended not to see it. He wasn’t a hero, especially when there was still a huge worry buried in his body.The exception was dragging down Yuan Xi, even though he didn’t ask Yuan Xi to leave early. He really couldn’t do anything at the moment.
But his ostrich mentality was soon forced to change.
Luo XiaoLou had just managed to wake up another exotic beast, when Yuan Xi suddenly walked over and pulled him up. He didn’t even look at Cyril, just said with a stony face, “This is the end for today. You come with me.”
Luo XiaoLou was dragged away as he said goodbye to Cyril. Today was over full anyway. In fact, in the past half month, though his Yuan Power cycled between depletion and full replenishment, not only did he not suffer any damage, but his Yuan Power had advanced another layer. He was now at the first level of the Super Source of Consciousness. If he went further, he might even be able to fight directly with his Yuan Power as he wished.
However, whenever he recalled his almost hopeless future, his rising happiness disappeared in the blink of an eye.
Yuan Xi gave the downcast Luo XiaoLou a sideways glance. He thought that he had been in this mood a lot recently, so Yuan Xi held Luo XiaoLou’s hand with a slight force.
After they arrived at their room, Yuan Xi pulled Luo XiaoLou to sit beside him, his face extremely tense.
When Luo XiaoLou saw he was sitting so properly, he blinked and wondered what Yuan Xi could be so nervous about. However he didn’t dare ask. Besides, Yuan Xi would never admit it.
Yuan Xi clicked on his communication device, and selected the projection function. A three-dimensional image of His Majesty Feng JiaLing immediately appeared in front of them. At first sight, Luo XiaoLou was shocked to see his mother-in-law, and then his face turned red. He had a history of sneaking away, while Yuan Xi actually didn’t even say hello in advance.
Luo XiaoLou quickly got up, and bowed to Feng JiaLing.
Surprisingly, Feng JiaLing didn’t show any signs of anger. He even smiled at Luo XiaoLou, and said, “I’m relieved to see that you are all right. In addition, I would like to say congratulations to you.”
Luo XiaoLou was a bit stunned. His recent history was almost a disaster day for him. He really couldn’t think of anything good.
Feng JiaLing turned to the side to greet someone. Luo XiaoLou felt a tightening on his hands. Yuan Xi also followed, and stood up with a look of impatience.
The two of them were in front of Feng JiaLing, who adjusted the angle of the communication device. Luo XiaoLou and Yuan Xi immediately saw the contents of the nearby cart.
The cart was square, surrounded by a fence, and covered with a soft white sheet, which was obviously thick and soft. At that moment, what surprised Luo XiaoLou the most was the small baby in the middle. It was actually a crib.
Luo XiaoLou was dragged forward by Yuan Xi. He noticed Yuan Xi’s breathing increased slightly, and his gaze was unblinking. Suddenly, a vision rose from the bottom of Luo XiaoLou’s heart. He stammered and asked, “Mother. Mother, who is this?”
“This is your and Yuan Xi’s child.” Feng JiaLing’s face softened when he looked at the baby, and he said softly, “Originally, the breeding of your offspring was on the agenda a long time ago. I don’t know why it actually took so long. It’s a good thing that this little one finally couldn’t resist coming out.”
The child in the crib also seemed to realize something. He turned his head towards the stranger at the side of the crib, looked at him in interest, then shouted at the two of them, “yi, yi, yi, yi.”
Yuan Xi and Luo XiaoLou, of course, were only a three-dimensional image, not a real presence, but there was no difference between the image, and two people standing in the room.
Yuan Xi pulled Luo XiaoLou to stand beside the crib. He pursed the corners of his mouth and stared at the little baby without turning his eyes. He neither talked, nor showed more intimacy.
Luo XiaoLou was stunned. God! He. He was not mentally ready to be a father! At the same time, Luo XiaoLou didn’t forget to carefully check it top to bottom. Fortunately, there were no ears, no tail; there was nothing extra.
Luo XiaoLou was quietly relieved, but at the same time, he began to worry about becoming a father. He and Yuan Xi couldn’t bring up a child. Feeding, playing games with him, telling him about life and so on. All he had to do was glance at Yuan Xi’s expression, and Luo XiaoLou had no doubt about the difficulty of the last item.
But when he looked at the baby, Luo XiaoLou’s hand trembled uncontrollably, and he slowly reached out.
The baby frowned because the two were close. It’s dark eyes stared dead at Luo XiaoLou’s approaching hand.
Just when he would have touched the baby’s face, Luo XiaoLou stopped his hand. He knew he couldn’t actually touch. However, the little baby was a bit unhappy, obviously this person came over to play with him, but was hesitant. Even if he hadn’t been approved, he couldn’t be so wicked as to tease him, ah!
The baby struggled to raise its chubby white fist, which was placed on the tip of Luo XiaoLou’s finger.
Although it was impossible to have any real contact, at that moment, Luo XiaoLou’s heart was so full of excitement and sweetness he could hardly express it. He never knew that having his own child would feel so intense.
Whether it was the eyes full of anger, or the tightly clenched little fist, or that baby-fat little face, it seemed, to his surprise, that there was no part that wasn’t cute. He had an impulse to tell everyone that this cutest child was his and Yuan Xi’s child.
He wanted to hug him, kiss him, and tell him that they were his closest relatives.
Luo XiaoLou’s eyes unknowingly moistened, while Yuan Xi remained standing coldly to the side, and just held Luo XiaoLou’s hand even harder.
At some point, 125 appeared next to them. As the two looked on, he stood on tiptoe and stared at the inside of the crib. His tail was whipping behind him, and his eyes almost burst into flames. Why! Inside the baby’s crib there were two white, round eggs tied with pink bows!
Someone please tell him why the eggs he worked so hard to cultivate were thrown in the toy pile, and in the hands of that little kid!
“He was born two days after you left. It’s a boy and very healthy.” Feng JiaLing’s gentle voice said. Then Mr. Butler carefully picked up the little baby, and brought him closer to the communicator.
The child’s face was quickly enlarged, and his round eyes looked at Yuan Xi and Luo XiaoLou without blinking. He tentatively called out to them twice more, and his little white chubby hands began to wave. As the baby moved, a milk bottle was brought to his mouth.
The baby sucked hard, and stared at them while he drank the milk. Finally his eyes rested on Luo XiaoLou.
Mr. Butler watched with emotion. Then he turned his head, and whispered to Yuan Xi and Luo XiaoLou, “Your Two Highnesses, come back early. The little master hasn’t been held by his parents yet.”
When those words came out, Luo XiaoLou’s eyes became even redder, while Yuan Xi mned, then quickly spoke to Feng JiaLing before he disconnected the communication.
Then Yuan Xi hugged Luo XiaoLou. After a moment of silence, he said, “If you want to see him again, come back with me.”
Luo XiaoLou didn’t want Yuan Xi to turn off the communication device so early, but he felt that Yuan Xi did the right thing. It was even harder to look at the baby this way. After he heard Yuan Xi’s words, he said nothing difficult at that time, just said a good word.
Both of them were so engrossed in their own emotions, that Luo XiaoLou missed the various gestures 125 made at him.
The next day, after Luo XiaoLou finished his treatment, he and Yuan Xi went to Li Mo’s room.
Within a few minutes, the door to Li Mo’s room opened and several tall exotic beasts came out. They took one look at them and left. Li Mo said from inside, “Come in.”
When Luo XiaoLou entered the room, he found large and small screens everywhere. Apparently, Li Mo had just been in a meeting. Since he knew that Li Mo was usually incredibly busy, Luo XiaoLou didn’t waste words, just directly explained the purpose of their visit.
Li Mo’s gaze flashed, and he seriously measured Luo XiaoLou twice. “You mean you want to learn how to make exotic beast mecha?”
Luo XiaoLou nodded. “Yes, although the possibility of returning isn’t good, it’s not completely hopeless, so I should at least try to fight for it. Maybe, I can come back with Yuan Xi.”
Li Mo showed a rare smile. “You finally made a difference. That’s why we left home. In that case, you can help me deliver something to Master Yu’s place.”
That said, Li Mo handed over a chip. Luo XiaoLou knew that this was Li Mo thinking of ways to help pull strings, He got busy, took it and said thanks.
After he thought about it, he said honestly, “Brother, I will try to come back sober. If I can’t come back, I will have Yuan Xi come back. When I need materials to make exotic beast mecha, you mustn’t spare me.” If he and Yuan Xi couldn’t return, then their children wouldn’t be orphans. That was absolutely impossible.
Li Mo’s emotions had just started to rise, but the warmth receded instantly and cleanly. He waved at Luo XiaoLou and Yuan Xi, and told them to hurry up and go. Out of sight, out of mind.
Luo XiaoLou and Yuan Xi then went to the master, Master Yu, who was possibly the most powerful mecha maker among the exotic beasts, and also the only exotic beast who woke up on their own without Luo XiaoLou’s help.
The moment Li Mo unsealed Landa, Master Yu came to his senses, which showed that the Master’s Source of Consciousness was so high it wasn’t on the same level as regular exotic beasts.
Li Mo even told Luo XiaoLou once that Master Yu’s Source of Consciousness was unmatched among exotic beasts.
Luo XiaoLou was led in by a small assistant. When he saw Master Yu, he really hadn’t expected that the person with the highest Source of Consciousness among the exotic beasts would actually be a woman.
Opposite him, the woman with white hair looked up, glanced coldly at Luo XiaoLou and said, “The things stay. You can leave.”
The moment she raised her head, Luo XiaoLou froze. Although she had a head of white hair, her face looked unusually young, with a line of chill between the eyebrows. It could be said that, even with the eyesore white hair, Luo XiaoLou had rarely seen such a beautiful woman.
Yuan Xi, with an ugly face, pinched him, and caused Luo XiaoLou to come back to his senses. He said respectfully, “Master Yu. Besides delivering an item, I actually have something else to ask you.”
Master Yu looked at Luo XiaoLou with a cold expression, and said indifferently, “Since you know me, you should also know that after I got sober, my spirit was damaged and my Source of Consciousness hasn’t recovered yet. Moreover, I’m old. I can’t help you young people with your affairs.” With that, she started to rush to her assistant to order her guests out.
Luo XiaoLou hurried, and said directly, “Master Yu, I only hope to learn the method of making exotic beast mecha from you!”
The young assistant who had received Luo XiaoLou was secretly anxious for him, and in his heart he could not help but think, You are too direct. For so many years, Master Yu hasn’t been able to find a disciple.
The young assistant who had been saved by Luo XiaoLou, knew Luo XiaoLou’s embarrassing identity, and while the majority of exotic beasts usually didn’t speak with Luo XiaoLou, but his heart held no antipathy, and even viewed him, someone exiled from the clan since childhood, with some pity. He got up and left.
Master Yu sat back, and pulled up the corners of her mouth. “You want to learn to make exotic beast mecha?”
Although Luo XiaoLou didn’t know why Master Yu hadn’t refused, he still immediately said, “You can be rest assured. I have the foundation for making mecha, and I will definitely work hard.”
With a sullen expression, Master Yu stayed in her seat for a long time before she said, “Okay. Starting tomorrow, you can come over for three hours every day and learn to make exotic beast mecha.”
So, to Luo XiaoLou’s surprise, the process went smoothly, and after he thanked her, he and Yuan Xi left.
When there were no outsiders in the room, the young assistant, who only pretended to have guts, asked, “Master. Why did you…accept a disciple so easily?”
Master Yu smiled coldly, then said somewhat self-deprecatingly, “I don’t want to take this disciple either, but I am in a situation. What do you think the Source of Consciousness of those exotic beasts that were rescued is like now? Here, except for Li Mo, no one’s Source of Consciousness can be compared with Luo XiaoLou.” Her technology couldn’t not find an heir. Who would Li Mo point to to carry the exotic beast mecha production forward? As a matriarch, that was impossible for her to do.
Moreover, if she did this, she also afforded hope to parents.
That night, 125 finally found an opening, and personally explained something to Luo XiaoLou.
After he heard that, Luo XiaoLou almost jumped up and down as he yelled, “What did you say?”
Yuan Xi came in from outside, frowned and asked, “What’s wrong?”
Luo XiaoLou was so anxious that he ran over and took Yuan Xi’s hand, and needed several deep breaths before he said, “125 told me. Those two eggs he left behind are also our children.”
125 saw the expressions on their faces, and immediately jumped into the necklace that was fast becoming a pendulum, and then displayed a video. After Yuan Xi viewed it, he frowned and thought, then finally said, “Good. He can nurture our offspring.”
This video was the proof of 125’s so-called innocence…
“You…what on earth are you thinking? How could you let him do such a thing?” Luo XiaoLou asked in shock.
Yuan Xi considered it for a while. He had already said yes to the royal steward who requested to breed offspring for him and Luo XiaoLou, and while that time 125 did follow him secretly, Yuan Xi never thought he would actually fight this idea.
Luo XiaoLou was angry, and intended to settle the score with 125, who had made the decision on his own. But who knew that for the first time Yuan Xi wouldn’t lose his temper and stopped him, as he said, “It’s too late for you to oppose it. Although I hate children, there seems to be no difference between one child and three children.”
Luo XiaoLou looked at Yuan Xi dumbfounded. He felt that Yuan Xi’s thoughts on the issue and his could never seem to agree. With 125, it was the same thing. To make such a big deal about the number of children more or less, and-
“You. What do you mean, you hate our children?” Luo XiaoLou asked incredulously.
Yuan Xi froze for a moment, his face a little weird. He wasn’t going to answer Luo XiaoLou’s question, but was finally forced by Luo XiaoLou, and said, “Okay, for your sake. I will tolerate them.”
Luo XiaoLou then remembered that when Yuan Xi saw the child, there was no expression of excitement, and he didn’t even intend to hug the child at all.
Luo XiaoLou’s heart suddenly went cold. If he couldn’t come back and Yuan Xi had to return by himself, their children, could they fully count on Yuan Xi for fatherly love?
He must do everything possible to come back.
If Yuan Xi found a stepmother for them, the result was even more unimaginable.
Just the idea of that caused Luo XiaoLou to immediately forget about Yuan Xi’s usual prestige and he grabbed Yuan Xi’s collar, and said with a great deal of force.
“You can’t marry anyone else but me!”
Yuan Xi, who was about to take off his clothes, frowned and carried Luo XiaoLou to the bed.
“What are you thinking? as long as you do your conjugal duties properly, why should I marry another?”
He didn’t wait for Luo XiaoLou to say anything else, he just gagged him.
Meanwhile exotic beasts quietly began to talk about the man who saved them. The thing was, the brother of Lord Li Mo, had changed a lot recently. From full of frustration and resignation, to full of life.
If it wasn’t for Lord Li Mo’s command not to disturb him, they wouldn’t be able to help but go over and talk to him.
A month later, Luo XiaoLou’s work of waking up the exotic beasts was finally complete.
Luo XiaoLou came over, and said to Li Mo that he wanted to spend a few days at Master Yu’s place before he left.
Li Mo agreed, only to request that Yuan Xi stay behind, by saying that he had something to discuss with him.
125, on the other hand, went to Master Yu’s place. He was worried as he accompanied Luo XiaoLou. Luo XiaoLou intended to learn exotic beast mecha, and he was always a little uneasy. This was the difference between one child and multiple children. 125 began to worry that Luo XiaoLou, if he had an exotic beast mecha of his own making, would never look at him again.
When he overheard Luo XiaoLou’s intention to transform Yuan Xi’s mecha, Cloudy Sky, into an exotic beast mecha, 125’s worries eased slightly. He was just a little twisted in his heart.
And when Master Yu gave Luo XiaoLou an exotic beast gene, 125 almost jumped up. That… That was the gene his brother had used! God, why was it so ill-fated! Were there going to be two mecha on top of his head from now on to train him?
