Luo XiaoLou thought about it for a long time, and when Saturday arrived, he got up the courage to ask Master Yan for leave. Master Yan, who was as black as Bao-gong, 1 waved his hand and said impatiently, “Get lost! Make up your own overtime for tomorrow’s work, and don’t expect me to give you any other time off!”
Luo XiaoLou smiled. He didn’t care how much work he had to do, in fact he preferred Master Yan to set up more work so he could learn more. Thanking him respectfully, Luo XiaoLou turned around and headed out of yet another lab where there was no one else but Master Yan.
A voice chuckled heedlessly, “Hm, your little disciple is very motivated, and he even buys his own materials in a place like yours. Don’t keep reprimanding this kid. When one day he can’t take it anymore and runs away crying, I’ll see where you can find him.”
Master Yan, who was checking the report, was not happy. His eyes glazed over and he got angry, “Let him dare!”
Motherfucker, of course my disciple has to listen to me, or else they’d listen to you?
If I’m not strict with him, he won’t be able to meet my standards. Besides, what’s wrong with a reprimand? My assistants are adjusting well, aren’t they? If I had been gentle — Master Yan himself shuddered first — would they even prepare what I ask for so quickly and on my terms?
Wait, this guy doesn’t have a crush on my disciple, does he?
“He’s someone I’ve taken a fancy to, so don’t you old fool try to hit on him.” Master Yan immediately and arrogantly warned. Though Master Yan had never loudly said — or perhaps he had forgotten to mention it, of course — that Luo XiaoLou was his apprentice, since he thought so in his own mind that Luo XiaoLou was his disciple, of course he was.
What? Objections? Of course I can have him, but I don’t accept you. Anyone who has a problem with it will have to come directly to me, Yan!
As for Luo XiaoLou, judging by his timid and obedient nature, he wouldn’t dare say anything. Besides, he’d seen people who were eager to be his apprentice, but he’d never seen anyone who didn’t want to be. In case Luo XiaoLou really didn’t want to do it, Old Man Yan would be a little more polite to Luo XiaoLou. But with his personality, he wouldn’t be able to hold out for more than a few days…
While Master Yan was struggling, Luo XiaoLou briskly took the hover bus to his home. On the way, Luo XiaoLou contacted Yates to set up a time and place to meet tomorrow. He didn’t want to go home and contact Yuan Xi in front of him. After all, it wouldn’t be a surprise at all to prepare a birthday present for him if he knew about it in advance.
Besides, Yuan Xi had been having some kind of trouble since a couple of days ago, and had a dark face all day. He couldn’t tell if he was angry with him.
He ate and went to school just fine, and he even went to the kitchen when Luo XiaoLou was cooking. He was like a proud cat who wanted to eat, but he was so proud of himself that when he strut around at your feet — he was tripping all over the place.
When he slept, he took up even more bed space. He knew he couldn’t sleep properly and always fell asleep on top of Luo XiaoLou, and still kept squeezing him…
After dinner, Yuan Xi, who had been to the Ancient Martial Arts Training Hall during the day, asked for a massage, and Luo XiaoLou gave him a massage from head to back. There were actually dark circles under his eyes that were obvious.
Luo XiaoLou was shocked. Did he jump on him every day, causing trouble for Yuan Xi and not letting him sleep well?
That night, Luo XiaoLou was determined to stay awake until Yuan Xi fell asleep, but he couldn’t get carried away with the fact that Yuan Xi was staying on longer and longer.
When Yuan Xi came out of the virtual network, Luo XiaoLou was still awake. Surprised, Yuan Xi leaned back and waited for Luo XiaoLou to fall asleep — he couldn’t just hug Luo XiaoLou while he was awake. But when both he and Luo XiaoLou started to doze off, and Luo XiaoLou didn’t even try to sleep first, Yuan Xi’s face started to look bad.
Simply reaching out and patting Luo XiaoLou, Luo XiaoLou opened his eyes in surprise and saw that Yuan Xi was actually still leaning on the bed head, “What was that for?” Bastard, when the hell are you going to sleep? I can’t hold on much longer!
Yuan Xi darkened his face and grunted, not saying anything, but instead leaning in to rest his head on Luo XiaoLou’s shoulder and wrapping his arms around his waist — because Yuan Xi had done this so many times in the kitchen before, Luo XiaoLou only chalked it up as a prelude to Yuan Xi’s awkwardness.
“I can’t sleep when you leave the light on,” Yuan Xi said sullenly.
Sure enough, he was starting to find an excuse. Luo XiaoLou muttered in his heart and looked at the time. It was really late. If he continued like this, he definitely wouldn’t be able to get up tomorrow.
“Then sleep.” Luo XiaoLou put the model in his hands away, turned off the light, and pulled up the blanket and laid down.
Since Yuan Xi had just been holding his waist and didn’t let go even when he lay down, this time there was no need for Luo XiaoLou to ‘take the initiative to jump over’ again.
Luo XiaoLou thought about it and was ready to take advantage of the fact that Yuan Xi was awake and separate from him by a distance. He wanted to show Yuan Xi that he didn’t mean to pester him to sleep with him.
After Luo XiaoLou struggled a few times, Yuan Xi suddenly turned red in the face and glared at Luo XiaoLou, shouting furiously, “What the hell are you doing?! Moving around like that, you’re doing it on purpose!”
Luo XiaoLou blushed. Motherfucker, they were so close. He could now clearly feel Yuan Xi’s reaction below! Of course, both of them were young, and both of them were not looking for an alternate relief, so it was not surprising that they reacted in bed.
Luo XiaoLou was old enough to be embarrassed but calm about it. However, Yuan Xi was like a cat that had its tail stepped on, and he was in a foul mood. Yuan Xi didn’t really have the opportunity to experience such embarrassing things — like getting an erection in front of his slave, etc. — so now he was staring at Luo XiaoLou in annoyance. In fact, he didn’t know what to do.
After the struggle, both of their bathrobes had loosened up. Like all people with poor physical fitness, Luo XiaoLou’s body was a little pale and thin, but now it was indescribably tempting to see every inch of it.
Yuan Xi’s eyes wandered.
Yes, this body belonged to his slave and thus belonged to him, and Luo XiaoLou was absolutely seducing him on purpose.
Luo XiaoLou also looked dumbly at Yuan Xi, who was now on top of him, from below. Yuan Xi, whose face was flushed, was still too perfect to look away from. Luo XiaoLou turned his head unnaturally. He was finished!! He couldn’t always think of Yuan Xi as a woman — “How about I help you?”
Luo XiaoLou’s words were followed by both of them stiffening.
Luo XiaoLou’s heart was flipping tables. Damn, why did he get impulsive at the thought of Yuan Xi being a woman?! Oh my god! He must have been a wizard for too long!! From his last life to this life, he was at the level of a great wizard! 2
Yuan Xi stared at Luo XiaoLou for a moment, then suddenly said with a voice dark with impatience, “Hurry.”
Yuan Xi actually agreed. Oh my god — Luo XiaoLou himself was even more embarrassed. Can’t you solve it yourself? I don’t want to be involved in this kind of talk. After all, it is a friendly gesture for men to help each other solve their problems but… Luo XiaoLou thought unbelievably, as he trembled and reached towards Yuan Xi’s pants.
When his fingers touched the inside of Yuan Xi’s underwear, Luo XiaoLou twisted his head and moved his fingers deftly with the determination to finish — as a high level wizard, he had some experience.
Yuan Xi’s face was flushed and his breathing was getting heavier, but he kept his eyes on Luo XiaoLou’s face.
Well, the debauchery and indulgence was actually quite wonderful if he didn’t consider that the person in front of him was Yuan Xi. Yuan Xi grew harder, his perfect features contorting with pleasure and finally climaxing as Luo XiaoLou sped up his movements.
It was late at night, but the temperature in the master bedroom seemed to rise a bit as Yuan Xi gasped.
Yuan Xi slowly calmed down. His face still had an unresolved blush, and he was still on top of Luo XiaoLou. Luo XiaoLou’s clothes were disheveled, the pale pink nubs on his white chest were within his reach. Yuan Xi narrowed his eyes and suddenly said, “It just wouldn’t be fair, so I’ll help you.”
Fair? Hey, who asked you to be fair! I’m totally free to serve, don’t mind me!
“No — no thanks… ah!” Luo XiaoLou whispered, it was impossible for anyone to be calm when their most vulnerable spot was already in someone else’s hands.
Yuan Xi leaned close to Luo XiaoLou and said insistently, “How does that work?! After all, you helped me, and… you’re reacting.”
“Ha, ah… you!” Luo XiaoLou grimaced, almost shrinking himself whole. It was so different when his member was in someone else’s grasp.
“By the way, how are you so familiar with this kind of thing?” Yuan Xi suddenly narrowed his eyes and asked in a dangerous tone, “Do you often do it for others?”
Luo XiaoLou tried to concentrate and responded with great difficulty, “Of course… Ah! You asshole! Don’t clench! Of course not…”
Yuan Xi was satisfied with the answer and his fingers gently loosened around him again. Yuan Xi finally lowered his head to kiss the pink nub with the side of his mouth, as Luo XiaoLou was completely immersed in pleasure.
At night, of course, they still slept together…
In the morning, the master bedroom was again the scene of the alarm clock calling for them to get up.
Luo XiaoLou growled in his heart, Indulgence is really a must!
Yuan Xi was still not up, so Luo XiaoLou prepared breakfast and hurried out.
Meeting up with Yates at the bus stop, Yates, who had been up all night with excitement at the thought of owning his own mecha soon, arrived even earlier than Luo XiaoLou.
When they got to the bus, Yates asked, “Hey, do you think I’d rather have the Yuan Xi kind or the Luo ShaoTian kind?”
“There’s no need to be like them, you just have to pick the one that suits you best.” Luo XiaoLou said as he smiled at Yates who was literally sitting on the edge of the bus. He said comfortingly, “Don’t worry, since it’s an auction, there must be a lot of mecha and there will always be one that suits you.”
Luo XiaoLou checked, most of the current mecha were human-type mecha and beast-type mecha. Beast-type mecha were fast, impulsive, and had strong attacks; human-type mecha were flexible and had a lot of attack power, each had their pros and cons. However, the human-type mecha could both attack and defend, and so most of them were still chosen for battle.
Yuan Xi, Luo ShaoTian, and Ling Xu all used human-type mecha, but with different models. Moreover, after choosing the right mecha, they could also modify it, and after that, the mecha would become faster and more forceful.
Of course, good mecha were available, as were good mecha makers, with some major alterations. But if not for a mecha maker with real skills, a mecha warrior wouldn’t just modify the mecha.
The auction that the two of them were going to was the same as the last time Luo XiaoLou bought materials from the Heavenly Winter Auction House. Because the two of them had gotten up early due to various reasons, they were considered to be early arrivals by the time they arrived at the Heavenly Winter.
Yates accompanied Luo XiaoLou to the underground level, looking for the materials he needed.
There were plenty of mecha parts and materials in the various small shops, and the prices were relatively cheaper than what you would find outside, so Luo XiaoLou pulled out the list he had brought and bought a lot of the materials he needed.
He was making an energy box he had never seen before and the chances of failure were quite high, so he had to buy more. The energy box was not big, but the materials used were quite a lot. Luo XiaoLou had almost used 10,000 federal coins to buy more than a dozen parts. After looking at his even more deflated vault, his heart ached.
Finally, before the auction started, Luo XiaoLou and Yates found Manager Gao again through the beautiful girl, Lily. Manager Gao was a busy man and ordinary people certainly could not meet him easily. It was a good thing that after having been introduced by Tian Le, Manager Gao received the two personally.
“Oh? Little brother again? What do you need?” Although Luo XiaoLou wasn’t a rich customer, he was quick-witted and a mecha maker from a famous school, so he thought he would like to make friends with him.
Luo XiaoLou was a little embarrassed and handed over the list in his hand, “Hello Manager Gao, I accompanied Yates over to buy a mecha, and I bought some materials. I’ve just almost found everything myself, but I can’t find three of them. I don’t know if you have any here.”
Luo XiaoLou knew that just because those small shops didn’t have any, it didn’t mean that Manager Gao also didn’t have any here, since some of the high-grade goods were not visible outside.
Manager Gao looked at the list in his hands and pondered, Red Resembling Stone, Promise Grass, Gold River Crystal. All of them are high-grade materials, and only the masters who manufacture Grade 4 mecha parts will specifically ask him to book these things.
Especially Golden River Crystals. The ones found now only came from the Golden River, but the area around the Golden River was very dangerous, making this material all the more precious. What was Luo XiaoLou buying these things for?
The other day when Luo XiaoLou bought the ‘junk’ from him, Manager Gao felt that this young man was very discerning, and now he had raised his opinion of Luo XiaoLou’s position to another level.
This handsome and pleasant young man would not have a simple future.
“Do you have some?” Luo XiaoLou saw Manager Gao mumbling and his heart began to feel apprehensive. Yuan Xi’s birthday was coming up and, if he couldn’t buy it here, his plans would probably really be ruined.
Manager Gao returned to his senses and smiled, “There is, but it’s more expensive.”
Luo XiaoLou was relieved and quickly asked, “It’s the same as last time, I’ll buy as much as I can. You can show me the price first.”
Manager Gao casually opened the e-book, made a few clicks, and handed it to Luo XiaoLou, “Here’s the price I can give you.”
Even if Luo XiaoLou was prepared, his hands were shaking, Motherfucker 125, what the hell are you doing! You’re actually aiming to use up my vault, aren’t you!
The minimum purchase for each of these three materials was five hundred grams, and the price for three five hundred grams was — 100,000 federal coins.
Luo XiaoLou took a deep, hard breath, forced himself not to look at his account balance, and looked at Manager Gao and said painfully, “That’s fine, I’ll take five hundred grams of each.”
Manager Gao narrowed his eyes with a smile. People who were willing to spend money and effort on their research would only have the chance to become the top of the hierarchy in the future, and it would not be in vain that he gave him the lowest price.
“I’ll have it sent over, and besides, you’re considered a long-term regular customer of ours here, so I’ll send you a gold card. In the future, you’ll get a 60% discount on everything you buy at those small shops.”
Luo XiaoLou’s eyes lit up. Today was worth it!
The 60% discount using a gold card was too OP. He would definitely buy his materials here in the future, using this card to buy materials in those small shops would save him a lot of money.
Luo XiaoLou was extremely grateful to Manager Gao, and Manager Gao smilingly looked at the delighted Luo XiaoLou and said, “Don’t be polite, and also, if Luo XiaoLou has any finished products, you can bring them over and I’ll take a look. I can also sell them on consignment here. Of course, there will be a certain fee.”
Manager Gao’s words deepened Luo XiaoLou’s surprise, which meant that he would have another source of income. Of course, he didn’t have any finished products he could sell yet, but that didn’t mean there wouldn’t be any in the future.
Luo XiaoLou could buy back the materials for the Grade 1 parts, make his own finished products, and come over to sell them. He didn’t dare to say anything else, but he could guarantee that he would see finished products quickly.
Manager Gao was happy in his heart, and Luo XiaoLou was interested. The two discussed in great detail very happily.
At this time, Lily smiled and walked in, saying to Manager Gao, “Manager Gao, the auction is about to start.”
Manager Gao laughed, “See, I almost missed the time because I was so happy, but I can’t delay. Yates, let’s go. Let’s go there together.”

- This is a pretty common euphemism but I will explain it for those who do not know. When someone calls themselves a ‘wizard’, this means that they are still a virgin after 30 years. This means that even though Luo XiaoLou was engaged in his last life, he had never had a sexual partner.
