“Ms. Jin? She has no right to ask you anything! I’ve watched her grow up, but she has nothing to do with me!” 125 screamed angrily in Luo XiaoLou’s ear, and only after yelling, found that Luo XiaoLou was actually indifferent, so it raised it’s voice again in exasperation, “Hey, why don’t you say something? You’re going to turn him down right — you know, I’m the most advanced, most complete, most powerful mecha in all of the Federation! I’ve got reserves of information here that you can’t even imagine — and there’s no one to pilot me but you. “
After a few seconds of hesitation, 125 said, “…I’ll never hide your stuff again, and I won’t use your Internet account to download pornography, and I won’t peek when you and Yuan Xi make love — as long as you don’t hand me over, I promise you all of this!” The last part of its voice was a cry.
Luo XiaoLou covered 125 in his pocket with a black look on his face. What had this bastard hidden from him?
Luo ShaoFan stared intently at Luo XiaoLou and pursued, “There is such a necklace, right? Ms. Jin said she had given it to you.”
Luo XiaoLou tried to ignore 125’s vibrations of discontent and looked into Luo ShaoFan’s eyes with amusement, “Ms. Jin said that? So why didn’t she just contact me instead of making you come and ask me for it?” How did Ms. Jin and Luo ShaoFan get together? Are they aware of the existence of 125, and does anyone else know?
First of all, this necklace was obviously left to him by the original body’s mother; secondly, although there was definitely something wrong with 125’s brain nerves, it had to be said that this guy was still very useful at times; thirdly, maybe he really could drive 125…one day. Luo XiaoLou would never hand over the necklace based on these three points.
Thinking of this, Luo XiaoLou was glad that 125 had awakened early, otherwise, if someone had asked him for it before, he might have thrown it over.
Luo ShaoFan was stunned. Ms. Jin had clearly said that Luo XiaoLou would listen to her the most and mentioning her name would definitely get the necklace back, but what was this? After some hesitation, Luo ShaoFan said, “Yes, I’ll let her speak to you personally then.” Then he lifted his right hand and connected to Ms. Jin’s communicator, saying in a tone that wasn’t good, “I found him but your good boy won’t give that necklace. Talk to him yourself.”
Luo ShaoFan stretched his hand out to Luo XiaoLou, and Luo XiaoLou easily caught sight of Ms. Jin’s slightly disturbed face.
Seeing Luo XiaoLou, Ms. Jin’s eyes reddened, and she asked softly, “XiaoLou, it’s been a long time since I’ve seen you, are you still — okay? If you have any problems, just tell mom, I will try my best to help you.”
Luo XiaoLou nodded very cooperatively and then said, “I’m fine, there’s nothing to worry about. Take care of yourself.”
Ms. Jin was touched and relieved to find her way back to feeling comfortable with her son. Then, she said a few more words about paying attention to diet and clothing. It wasn’t until Luo ShaoFan started coughing impatiently that she stopped talking and asked with a bit of a swallowness, “XiaoLou, didn’t you, when you left last time, didn’t your mother give you a green jade necklace? You didn’t lose that thing, did you?”
Luo XiaoLou chimed in and said, “Yes, it’s still with me. I remember mother saying that it was left to me by my grandmother, so I’ve been keeping it well.”
When Ms. Jin heard this, she seemed to remember something and began to hesitate again. Looking at Luo XiaoLou, who had been lowering his head, she was somewhat unable to see his expression clearly. At this time, Luo ShaoFan beside him impatiently gave Ms. Jin a look, and Ms. Jin suppressed the sadness in her eyes and continued, “XiaoLou, mother is now useful. Give that necklace to ShaoFan, so that he can bring it back. “
Luo XiaoLou raised his eyebrows and, to everyone’s surprise, quickly said, “Mother, I refuse.”
Ms. Jin was also startled. She looked at Luo XiaoLou dumbfoundedly and urgently asked, “Why?! It’s just a necklace? I brought you up as a child — You won’t even give me a necklace? Won’t you give me the necklace?” At the end of the sentence, her voice unconsciously began to sharpen.
“I have been the owner of this necklace since the day you gave it to me. I have the right to decide whether it stays or goes, and now, I’ve made my decision and have no intention of changing it, no matter what you say.” Luo XiaoLou said indifferently.
“You! When did you become so disobedient? XiaoLou, listen, if you don’t give the necklace to ShaoFan, I won’t recognize you as my son again!” Ms. Jin was in a rush, yet had a few regrets after saying such desperate words. She swept a glance at Luo ShaoFan on the side, and held back the exhortation she was about to export.
Luo XiaoLou was silent for a moment, raised his head to Ms. Jin and said, “Then, take care of yourself. Goodbye.” After saying that, he no longer paid attention to Luo ShaoFan who was in the way. He just turned around and left without hesitation, actually acquiescing to Ms. Jin’s statement of severing the mother-son relationship.
Ms. Jin was startled as she watched Luo XiaoLou’s back through the communicator. Because of the angle, there was only the departing Luo XiaoLou on the entire screen, walking further and further away.
Luo ShaoFan viciously turned off the communicator, staring at Luo XiaoLou with obvious malice in his eyes. This kid was lucky to have someone by his side all the time. He had arranged people to block Luo XiaoLou at the school gate, but they had never met him when he was alone. Then he scolded the group of people and personally looked for Luo XiaoLou himself, but Luo XiaoLou also slipped by him.
Now he had finally waited for him, but since he was not going to come over, he would snatch him up! Luo ShaoFan turned back with the intention of talking to the two men behind him, but he found one of his men rushing over. “Second Young Master, Young Master Tian is coming over.”
“Damn it! Forget it, count him luck. We’ll find him next time.” Luo ShaoFan held back his anger and walked back.
By the time Luo ShaoTian’s arrogant silver hair got closer, Luo ShaoFan had a smile on his face and leaned in to say, “ShaoTian, mother said she’d let you take me to grandfather’s after shopping.”
Luo ShaoTian hummed and led the way to the car. As he pulled the door open and entered, he casually glanced over at the hover bus that was leaving in the distance.
Luo XiaoLou was also looking out from inside. It turned out that Luo ShaoTian was also down below, and Luo ShaoFan seemed to be very wary of Luo ShaoTian. Almost every time Luo ShaoTian appeared, he would immediately change his appearance.
Recovering his sight, Luo XiaoLou found a spot to sit down comfortably. He placed his hand to his chest and thought silently: after all, she was only an adoptive mother. I gave her a chance, and I also cared about her face. In the end, I broke it off with her. But it was quite an easy feeling…
125 chattered and exclaimed in Luo XiaoLou’s ear, “Oh! That’s the spirit and style of our exotic beast! It was so — brutal! I love this character! This is nothing like how you were when you were with Yuan Xi, but don’t worry, I’ll never tell him.”
“Thank you so much.” Luo XiaoLou said without any sincerity, “By the way, I intend to give you a taste of your favorite brutality today.”
The voice in his ears went quiet, and a few seconds later, Luo XiaoLou heard it say in a cautious tone, “That, I just checked the Federation’s generic grammar and context, and it was purely a misuse of words just now, you’re so wise and elegant.”
“…Is it? Let’s put that aside for now. Explain to me why you didn’t alert me when Master Yan came over today? We should probably discuss in detail what you’ll be used for once you’re safely in my pocket.”
125’s voice was even quieter, “That’s because, Master Yan’s Spiritual Power is strong. Other than Yuan Xi, he’s the most likely to find out about my existence.”
Master Yan was indeed powerful, even 125 was scrupulous of him.
Luo XiaoLou didn’t hound 125 anymore, and touched the energy box in his pocket. His good mood settled down a bit but was not affected by those two. If Master Yan did give him the Heavy Radium, then the energy box for Yuan Xi would definitely be better, and he could also add the Black Chert.
Hmm, what to do with the Black Chert?
Luo XiaoLou had a headache again. Would he be able to prepare the gift for Yuan Xi by next Friday?
With this question in mind, Luo XiaoLou opened the door of his room. Yuan Xi wasn’t even back yet. After resting for a while, Luo XiaoLou looked at the time and started to prepare dinner. Since Yuan Xi was rarely not at home, 125 couldn’t help but poke it’s head out to comment on Luo XiaoLou’s cooking skills. Finally, Luo XiaoLou took off his necklace in annoyance and threw it on the cabinet behind him.
125 flashed not far from the expensive natural rice that, at a rate that was visible to the naked eye, partially disappeared.
After dinner was prepared, Luo XiaoLou was surprised to find that Yuan Xi hadn’t returned yet. Ah, was it going to be a sleepless night? Since the last time Yuan Xi made a trip to his home, he had never failed to come back.
By eight o’clock in the evening, Luo XiaoLou couldn’t help but eat first himself. Luo XiaoLou frowned and put the two untouched plates of food into the warmer. While the kitchen was cleaning up, the visualizer at the door suddenly made a beeping sound. Who would come over at such a late hour? The only people who knew about this place were Tian Le and Yates, but what would they do coming over at this hour?
Confused, Luo XiaoLou switched on the visualizer and was surprised to see Yuan Xi’s face on the screen.
Luo XiaoLou quickly opened the door and peeked out, only to be immediately shocked by the group of people outside. Yuan Xi, being supported by a girl, was standing at the front. His eyes were closed, and he reeked of alcohol.
Luo XiaoLou recognised the girl holding Yuan Xi as one of the new students who attended the Mecha Manufacturing Department’s orientation party at the beginning of the school year. A group of top students from the Mecha Department and a group of top students from the Mecha Manufacturing Department, why were they together and arriving at his doorstep?
Luo XiaoLou frowned imperceptibly, and some people outside started to frown as well, as they had been expecting a robot or servant to open the door.
Yuan Xi had always been a loner at school, not caring about what others think, and often carried Luo XiaoLou to training sessions at the Mecha Department. There was hardly anyone among the freshmen who didn’t know that Luo XiaoLou had been hitting on Yuan Xi, and some said that Luo XiaoLou had succeeded and was now living the life of a kept man.
However, the latter was only a rumor and had never been confirmed by anyone. But now, the truth seemed to be before them.
After looking at each other for a moment, someone in the crowd said, “Yo, I can’t believe you’ve already entered the house.”
Another Mecha Department student said, “Hey, he’s Yuan Xi’s friend. Why should we care? We’re here to send Yuan Xi, and now, since he’s been sent, let’s hurry up and send the others back too. It’s already too late to do this.” In addition to Yuan Xi, there were quite a few other people who had to be taken back home.
The man turned to Luo XiaoLou and said, “We gathered for dinner after training. Yuan Xi got drunk, so we followed the address he said and came to send him over.”
Luo XiaoLou nodded, ignoring the first man’s obvious provocation. He just looked at the very drunk Yuan Xi and frowned as he said, “Leave him to me.”
Luo XiaoLou reached out to help. But the girl who was supporting Yuan Xi, who had almost his entire weight leaning into her arms, narrowed her eyes and asked coldly, “What are you doing in Yuan Xi’s apartment?”
Shit, when did this become Yuan Xi’s apartment? Luo XiaoLou stared hard at Yuan Xi and replied absent-mindedly, “There’s no need to explain to you why I’m here.” This bastard, how could he still remember his way here when he’s almost passed out from drinking? He’s really too good at causing trouble.
That girl suddenly clenched her teeth, turned around and said, “You guys go first. He’s drunk so much, so I’ll stay and take care of him.”
The bystanders were stunned, then jokingly poked fun at that girl, “Yo, it hasn’t been officially announced yet, and you’re so upbeat ah? I also want to apply to be taken care of by the Mecha Manufacturing Department’s flower.”
The girl smiled slightly, “Fine, you stay and I’ll take care of you.”
That guy laughed, and more people started to laugh from how much alcohol they had consumed.
Luo XiaoLou raised his eyebrows. These people thought he, the apartment owner, was invisible? While considering whether or not to slam the door shut, Yuan Xi, whose head had been hanging, woke up to the sound of everyone laughing. His eyes were red, and he looked around in confusion, muttering, “I’m home.”
After saying that, he took a shaky step forward. The people around him quickly supported him up, and the girl said, “Quick, help him in first.”
Yuan Xi struggled up, and the people holding him were immediately swept aside.
Someone groaned, “He’s starting again. A drunk genius is horrible, and no one can restrain him at all. Ling Xu was there to help before, but now he’s already left…”
The eager students still tried to get closer to Yuan Xi, but he disgruntledly yanked away the people who were blocking the door and trying to help him in. Then he stumbled through the door himself, leaned on Luo XiaoLou, and slammed the door shut in front of everyone.
The people inside and outside the door were speechless. Yuan Xi’s temper was already overbearing and arrogant, and now that he was drunk, he was even more unreasonable…
The girl looked angrily and aggrieved at the tightly closed door. She was so close — if Yuan Xi hadn’t been drunk, she might have been able to get in! Her friend helped her up, and the group left on unsteady feet.
Inside, Luo XiaoLou was lying on his back on the floor, staring at the ceiling, with Yuan Xi sniffing around on top of him.
He shouldn’t have subconsciously reached out when Yuan Xi was about to fall over! This damned bastard was going to crush him to death!
The warm living room was filled with the smell of food. Yuan Xi comfortably rubbed against Luo XiaoLou and ordered, “Mn, let’s eat. Go prepare dinner.”
Luo XiaoLou’s mouth twitched, and he coaxed without pressure, “We just ate.”
Yuan Xi squinted at the memory for half a day, then said, “Okay then, let’s go shower.” With that, Yuan Xi got off of Luo XiaoLou and carried him to the bathroom like a chicken.
“Wait, wait! Let’s eat!”
“No, we should shower now, we already ate.” Yuan Xi insisted and Luo XiaoLou almost cried, the guy’s perversity was omnipresent.
In the bathroom, messy clothes were strewn everywhere; the warm water flowed slowly, and there was an attentive massage service where the body made contact with the tub. Everything was perfect, except for the fact that there was an extra person in the bath today.
Luo XiaoLou cowered in the corner of the tub as best he could, gritting his teeth as he glared at a confused and soaking Yuan Xi.
“Hey, don’t you think the tub is a little crowded?” Luo XiaoLou muttered, “And we never used to wash together.”
Yuan Xi turned his head around as if only just seeing Luo XiaoLou, who had been stripped and thrown in by him, “Ah, you’re here.”
What do you mean, you’re here!?
Yuan Xi’s handsome, perfect face was expressionless as he stared dumbly at Luo XiaoLou for a few seconds, and then said, “Well, it doesn’t matter. I’ll allow you to wash with me. Come here and help me scrub.” As he talked, he reached out and pulled Luo XiaoLou, who was hiding in the corner, over.
Fuck, I don’t need you to allow me to take a bath with you with a tone of grace, you can totally just leave me out of it…
Yuan Xi secured Luo XiaoLou between his legs, rested his head on Luo XiaoLou’s shoulder, and urged in a nasally voice, “Hurry up.”
A desperate Luo XiaoLou scrubbed Yuan Xi as quickly as he could and then, was brought back to bed by Yuan Xi who was in a state of invincibility due to his drunkenness. Without any clothes on, the two of them were tightly entwined together. Luo XiaoLou sighed and decided he would just sleep.
Luo XiaoLou reached out and pulled up the blanket, when his fingers touched something round.
125 was glowing with a strange green light.
No, he had to put this guy in the lab, or he wouldn’t be able to sleep well.
As soon as he moved, Yuan Xi immediately rolled over and pressed Luo XiaoLou down, staring at him with red eyes, and grabbed Luo XiaoLou’s neck with his hands.
Luo XiaoLou was terrified and said with trepidation, “Yuan Xi, what are you doing?”
Yuan Xi said fiercely, “You’re leaving? You want to leave me?!”
Luo XiaoLou tried to relax his stiff body and denied, “No, I have no such intention. I’m not leaving.” As long as the slave contract remained in place, he couldn’t go anywhere.
The expression on Yuan Xi’s face slowly softened, and he released his grip on Luo XiaoLou’s neck. Yuan Xi then easily embraced Luo XiaoLou, burying his head into Luo XiaoLou’s thin chest, as he spoke in a rare, gentle but still arrogant tone, “You are not allowed to leave, and if you don’t do as you’re told, I’ll be very angry. But you’re fine. I just want you, alone, and there won’t be anyone else in the future, so don’t leave.”
Yuan Xi would never say such a thing without getting drunk, but — what was this confession-like statement?
Luo XiaoLou couldn’t help but tremble all over, blaming it on the fact that Yuan Xi was rubbing against his ‘titties’ as he made his demands, but 125 was right next to them…
Luo XiaoLou took a deep breath, pulled the necklace off and threw it out the door, then vowed to Yuan Xi, “I won’t leave.”
Yuan Xi went to sleep satisfied, while Luo XiaoLou was kept awake for half the night by his tossing and turning.
So, on Sunday morning, Luo XiaoLou entered Kane in a daze with two panda eyes.
As soon as he entered, he saw Di Jia waiting for him at the top of the stairs with a big smile on his face.
