“Hey, Luo XiaoLou, you’re last again this time! Are you serious about studying?” Rod shouted gloatingly.
Luo XiaoLou, who was walking beside Yuan Xi, turned his head and glared at him, “No, I didn’t! I got twenty-first place this time, and there are forty students in my class.”
“Haha! But the three of us are the top three in the class. Don’t you feel inferior when you go to and from school with us every day? You’re the only one who can’t keep up. Think of the look on the captain’s face. I don’t know how you got picked.” Rod said with a smirk.
Luo XiaoLou’s face was red with anger, and he wanted to hit Rod, but he couldn’t because his hand was pulled by Yuan Xi.
Xia Zuo, who was walking on the other side of Yuan Xi, glanced at Rod. “Why do you always tease him? Do you want to be specially trained again? Besides, your grades are not as good as mine and Yuan Xi’s, so why don’t you feel inferior?”
Rod grimaced, and muttered in a low voice, “He’s not much older than me, so why are you always in charge of me? The key is still, not so good grades, pervert!”
Xia Zuo smiled lightly and gave Rod a look. Rod didn’t notice, but he shivered a little, then looked around and pulled his coat tight.
Yuan Xi looked sideways at Luo XiaoLou’s unhappy face, and said, “It’s nothing. It’s already better than last time. Students in Class A have to spend a lot of time studying, and you have special training.”
When he spoke of special training, Luo XiaoLou’s head dropped a bit more. He did have special training, but Yuan Xi’s three special training degrees were far greater than his. His special training was more like playing, although he did like…
“You don’t think much. Spirit power training is very rare. Ordinary people who want to train, can’t train in it.” Yuan Xi seemed to know what he was thinking, and comforted him.
Luo XiaoLou nodded, hesitated, and turned his head to look at Xia Zuo. He asked, “Xia Zuo, in your class, did you take notes?”
Xia Zuo looked at him strangely, and shook his head, “No, I haven’t done it, my self-study process surpassed the current class.”
Luo XiaoLou gave Xia Zuo a resentful look. He knew that because Yuan Xi also never took notes.
Yuan Xi smiled faintly, and looked at Luo XiaoLou with a rare gentleness in his eyes.
In the afternoon, Luo XiaoLou finished his mental training, and was given some physical training. By the time he was exhausted, Yuan Xi came out of the training room. When he returned to the palace, Luo XiaoLou looked at the big tree in the yard and was a bit confused.
“What’s wrong?” Yuan Xi asked.
Luo XiaoLou looked at the tree with white flowers and frowned. He didn’t know why, he always felt an eerie sense of familiarity. It felt like he had been to this place years ago.
Finally Luo XiaoLou shook his head, and followed Yuan Xi inside. Rod and Xia Zuo lived on the first floor, while Yuan Xi and Luo XiaoLou’s room was on the second floor.
In fact, Yuan Xi had been letting Luo XiaoLou sleep in his room ever since he was caught trying to escape. At first, Luo XiaoLou was anxious and scared because he couldn’t find his family, and he felt very lonely, so he was happy about this arrangement.
In the next two years, although Yuan Xi didn’t look at him anymore, he also didn’t ask Luo XiaoLou to change his room. Naturally, Luo XiaoLou didn’t bother to mention it.
Yuan Xi took out a change of clothes, and said to Luo XiaoLou, who was going to rest for a while, “Go take a shower first.”
Luo XiaoLou was tired and didn’t want to move, but when he thought about the bath which could really relieve fatigue, he followed Yuan Xi to the bathroom.
Put in the bath water, both of them into the bathtub. One side.
Luo XiaoLou leaned against the bathtub, and drifted off to sleep. He vaguely felt a hand was washing his hair. Although he wanted to tell Yuan Xi that he was eight years old, and could take a bath by himself, because of fatigue, he didn’t open his eyes.
Forget it. They’d talk about it next time. It wasn’t that bad anyway.
As his breathing calmed, the movement of the hands on his body also slowed down. Yuan Xi quietly looked at Luo XiaoLou, and the corners of his mouth slowly curved up.
No one knew that the cold prince had such a gentle side.
Luo XiaoLou slept for a while, until it was almost dinner time. Then he got up and went outside. When he passed the small living room, he saw Yuan Xi sitting on the sofa looking at the optical computer.
Luo XiaoLou casually sat next to him, and took a snack from the coffee table, but was held down by Yuan Xi.
“Hungry? Come on, let’s go eat first.” Yuan Xi clicked a few more times, and then closed the optical brain.
Luo XiaoLou looked twice at the snacks, but didn’t object, because it was not effective to object. Yuan Xi was very strict in controlling his meals.
Snacking before meals wasn’t allowed, otherwise he wouldn’t grow taller, and would lack nutrition.
After the four of them had dinner together, Rod said to Luo XiaoLou, “Come on, let’s play games together tonight. I can take you.”
Luo XiaoLou shook his head. “No, I have homework.” Also he wanted to review. For the next monthly exam he didn’t want to be so much worse than them.
Yuan Xi looked at Luo XiaoLou who was going upstairs, talked to Xia Zuo about tomorrow’s assignment, then got up to go upstairs.
Rod shrugged his shoulders, and considered whether to invite Xia Zuo to play the game, but it would be much less fun if he kept being first.
Yuan Xi opened the door to his room, and found Luo XiaoLou was sitting in front of his desk. He went over, looked at what Luo XiaoLou was studying and said, “I’ll help you.”
Luo XiaoLou’s eyes showed surprise. “Hey. You’re not busy tonight?”
Yuan Xi rubbed Luo XiaoLou’s hair, and sat down next to him. “Yeah.”
By the time Luo XiaoLou’s grades could keep up with theirs, it was two years later.
Because of training missions, and the instructor’s arrangements, they changed schools.
Luo XiaoLou changed into his school uniform, and said to Yuan Xi, Xia Zuo and Rod, “You guys go. I’m fine alone, and I’ve been familiar with it for a few days.”
Yuan Xi frowned, and handed a particle gun to Luo XiaoLou before he left uneasily.
Luo XiaoLou helped the three of them to ask for leave, and then went to his position. As a transfer student, many students were secretly looking at him. When they found that the three more handsome children didn’t arrive, some girls couldn’t help but be a little disappointed.
Luo XiaoLou sat down. He was usually very serious in class. But today, he looked at the white-haired kid in front of him, and couldn’t help but be a little confused. He didn’t know why, but that child caught his eye.
His hair was a strange color, but the child’s cold face was beautiful. As if he sensed Luo XiaoLou’s eyes, he looked up and his sharp eyes landed precisely on Luo XiaoLou’s position. At this time, the bell rang. Luo XiaoLou turned his head, and began to concentrate on listening to the lesson.
When school was over in the afternoon, Luo XiaoLou picked up his school bag, and got up to go outside. After leaving the school, a young girl from the same class was going in the same direction as him, so she came over to greet him and walked with him.
“Are you going to take the bus?” The girl asked.
“Yes.” Luo XiaoLou replied. The school was only a fifteen-minute walk from where they lived, but Yuan Xi didn’t feel comfortable with that.
“You guys, how are you getting used to it? I mean, friends and stuff, they’re all separated.” The young girl asked curiously.
“Why not? There are four of us, and I don’t have many friends.” Luo XiaoLou suddenly began to reflect. Yes, he came here four years ago, and except for the other three, he had few friends. Training took up most of their time.
Even when they had time off, they all stayed with Yuan Xi.
The little girl smiled, “My name is Qi Lan. I hope we can be friends in the future.”
Luo XiaoLou smiled and was about to reply, when suddenly some people came out of the alley in front of them. Qi Lan’s face changed, and she pulled Luo XiaoLou to turn around and walk back.
“Stop!” Those people quickly surrounded them.
They were five or six years older than them, dressed uniquely, and had colorful hair.
“Good boy, give me all the money.” A red-haired boy stood in front of the two.
Qi Lan pulled Luo XiaoLou and handed over the money she had brought. Luo XiaoLou was dumbfounded. Only then did it occur to him that he never had money. The money was usually on Yuan Xi. Every time he bought something, Yuan Xi or others paid. There was no time for him to use his money.
“What, you don’t want to take it?” The red haired teenager pushed Luo XiaoLou with a hand. “This kid looks strange.”
“A look is not a nobleman, otherwise how could he not have a car to pick up. I’ll teach him a lesson, and get him to remember to bring money to us next time.” The red haired teenager said. He was already moving towards Luo XiaoLou.
Luo XiaoLou pushed Qi Lan. “You go first. Leave me here!”
The little girl was pushed out. She looked over in horror, hesitated, then turned around and ran out.
Luo XiaoLou didn’t take out the particle gun. This was also an exercise for him. He was only prepared to teach them a small lesson. If the teenagers saw that he dared to resist, they’d get more angry. Of the five teenagers, two were brought down by Luo XiaoLou’s sneak attack on their ankles. He himself was also beaten and bruised. The remaining three saw their companions injured, and they also began to fight.
Although for that moment Luo XiaoLou wasn’t okay, time was long, and he would be fine.
Just as Luo XiaoLou began to consider whether to take out the gun, a person suddenly walked past the alleyway entrance.
The three punks stopped for a moment, and yelled at him, “Go away, and mind your own business!”
The person had his hands in his pockets, and was about to walk past. When he heard this, he suddenly stopped. He turned his head to look at the group, and Luo XiaoLou with his mussed hair. Suddenly he came over, then kicked the person who just yelled at him. The kick was more powerful than Luo XiaoLou’s sneak attack. The teen immediately screamed, and obviously couldn’t get up.
The other two people saw what was coming, and were slightly alarmed, one of them said, “Little brother, it’s none of your business. I apologize for what my brother just said.”
The teen hadn’t finished speaking, when, hands still in his pockets, the person had kicked him. The others present could hear the sound of breaking bones.
The remaining teenager took a few steps back, finally gritted his teeth, pulled out a laser knife, and ran towards him. The person’s face remained unchanged, but when the teen waved his knife, his body swayed and he was already behind him, as he lifted his foot and stepped on the punk who was a head taller than him.
Luo XiaoLou opened his mouth wide. At such an age, such perfect crisp and ruthless action. He had only ever seen Yuan Xi and the other two like that.
The small boy with white hair looked up at him, and grunted, “I just don’t like them.”
After that, the young boy’s foot gave a forceful push, and the punk underneath him let out another miserable scream. Then the young boy lifted his foot and continued to walk forward.
Luo XiaoLou saw him off, and smiled slightly. He didn’t know why. The person gave him a close feeling, and made him inexplicably remember his brother Luo Rui.
The small gang behind Luo XiaoLou’s sneak attack struggled to get up. Luo XiaoLou didn’t care. At this time, footsteps sounded again at the entrance of the alley.
Along with that, there was also Qi Lan’s urgent voice, “Just inside!”
Luo XiaoLou turned around, and was surprised to find that Qi Lan had brought Yuan Xi and Xia Zuo.
The next moment, Luo XiaoLou was tightly grasped by Yuan Xi. After some examination, Yuan Xi looked at the redness of Luo XiaoLou’s face. His hand lifted, gently touched, and his eyes slowly narrowed.
Xia Zuo also came over quickly, and asked worriedly, “XiaoLou, how are you? Where does it hurt?”
Luo XiaoLou’s body still had some pain, but he hadn’t suffered any injuries, so he said, “I’m fine.”
Yuan Xi let go of Luo XiaoLou and walked towards the gangsters, then a scream sounded in the alleyway.
Luo XiaoLou and Xia Zuo thought Yuan Xi wanted to beat people up. Then they saw him hit harder and harder, and that several punks were covered in blood and had fallen unconscious, but Yuan Xi showed no signs of stopping.
“Yuan Xi, stop fighting. Let’s go back.” Luo XiaoLou took a few steps towards Yuan Xi, and called out.
After a while, Xia Zuo also frowned, “Yuan Xi. That’s enough.”
Yuan Xi continued to kick a punk in the head with the kind of force that would kill or seriously injure him. Luo XiaoLou and Xia Zuo ran towards Yuan Xi. Luo XiaoLou held Yuan Xi’s arm. Xia Zuo raised his foot to block Yuan Xi, and kicked the punk to the side.
“Yuan Xi, are you going to kill them?” Xia Zuo asked with a tense face.
Yuan Xi’s eyes were red, but after a while, he turned around and dragged Luo XiaoLou outside.
Qi Lan was trembling and didn’t dare to call out to them. Just waited for them to leave before she ran outside.
That night, Yuan Xi gave Luo XiaoLou a bath and rubbed on medicine. After he fell asleep, he got up and went outside.
In the living room, Xia Zuo and Rod, who had been injured in the mission, were waiting for him.
Yuan Xi stood by the window and Xia Zuo said, “Yuan Xi, you’re not in the right mood.”
Rod looked at Yuan Xi with a worried face, “Your Highness, I know you and Luo XiaoLou have the deepest feelings, but those were just a few punks who robbed him. You know that there are people protecting XiaoLou. If his life is really in danger, they will come out–“
Yuan Xi interrupted him, “I know.” It was just that, at the time, he couldn’t control it. He wanted to kill those people. Even the girl who reported the news.
If Xia Zuo hadn’t been so familiar with him, he couldn’t even be sure that he wouldn’t have gone after him. Xia Zuo was right, this was not the mood of a calm heir.
“I will solve this problem. You guys go rest first.” Yuan Xi suddenly said.
Late that night, Yuan Xi sat quietly on the bed. He looked at the tender face of Luo XiaoLou beside him. He slept soundly, but with a slight frown on his brow. After a long time, Yuan Xi touched his hair, and then lowered his head and gently kissed Luo XiaoLou’s forehead.
After rebirth, has his control become a problem? Yuan Xi’s eyes dropped.
