Throughout the holidays, Yuan Xi, in addition to his ‘love’ study and exercise, went to practice online virtually. The morning before school started, Yuan Xi woke up early and walked around the kitchen with a taut face.
Luo XiaoLou gave him a puzzled glance. Yuan Xi had almost tripped over 125 several times until it had been herded into the corner of the living room, not daring to venture out. Finally Luo XiaoLou managed to ask, “What’s wrong?”
Yuan Xi froze, stopped, was silent for two seconds, and said, “After breakfast, let’s go out.”
“What’s the matter, today?” Luo XiaoLou was surprised. They rarely left the house, and stayed home almost the entire holidays since training.
Luo XiaoLou was too tired from the past and completely relaxed. Yuan Xi’s intentions were even more self-evident. Whenever he wanted to do something, no matter what they were talking about at the time, he could get around to studying and he’d get away with it.
“Can we not go out since you’re fine?” Yuan Xi asked unhappily, after realizing that Luo XiaoLou didn’t argue with him anymore. After Luo XiaoLou started to fry the egg, Yuan Xi snuck another glance at him and moved his ears.
Yesterday, when he was about to come back from the Internet, he overheard a couple arguing about the dissatisfaction of their date. Yuan Xi suddenly realized that he and Luo XiaoLou had entered into a mode similar to his parents’, and there had been no obstacles.
Originally, Yuan Xi was extremely satisfied and just wanted to wait until he found the right time to bring his little slave home to his parents. But even his parents had dated and done everything else before marriage – Yuan Xi suddenly started to worry about their future life. If they weren’t as happy as his parents because of this little thing, wouldn’t it be a big loss?
So Yuan Xi thought about it all night, not even doing his favorite exercise. He harassed his cousin with his communicator in the middle of the night before making plans for the day with his cousin’s help – which was to have a satisfying date.
When Luo XiaoLou came out of the room, he was stunned to see that 125 had dressed himself in a light green T-shirt. It actually fit him quite well, and he couldn’t help but start laughing.
125 looked behind Luo XiaoLou with trepidation, and when he realized that no one was there, he accused Luo XiaoLou, “What’s so funny? This is what you used to wear when you were a kid! Don’t expect me to pay you back – wait – are you going to leave me alone?”
It was true that 125 had collected the clothes, but I just didn’t think they were actually mine.
Luo XiaoLou’s eyes narrowed in a smile, as he stroked 125’s big head, and said, “No, I was going to take you out with me.” He was in such a good mood that he didn’t correct 125’s word usage problem.
On the way out, Yuan Xi frowned when he saw 125 walking beside Luo XiaoLou’s leg, but ultimately didn’t say anything. He just threw 125 into the back of the hover car.
125, who was following the two hosts for the first time, showed great interest, “Ah, it’s an open-air party! We must be going there, right? Hey, Zoo! Shall we go in-“
Yuan Xi turned to look at Luo XiaoLou and warned, “If you don’t find a way to shut it up, I’ll immediately throw it out the window.”
Luo XiaoLou and 125 immediately looked out the window, now about two hundred and fifty meters from the ground. All kinds of things on the ground were just a small shadow. If it falls ……
Luo XiaoLou smiled back and said, “I think littering is a bad habit.”
125 covered his mouth with his paw, daring the two owners in front of him to look at him.
Fifteen minutes later, Yuan Xi parked his hover car in a sky parking lot next to a huge building, and Luo XiaoLou got out of the car to find many people marveling at Yuan Xi’s unusually stylish vehicle.
In Saint Miro Academy, most of the students were the sons of powerful and influential families, it wasn’t so obvious, but outside, Luo XiaoLou realized with hindsight that Yuan Xi’s status was probably not ordinary either. But after being away from home for so long, why hasn’t anyone from his family come to take this guy back?
Of course, Luo XiaoLou wasn’t thinking this way because he wanted Yuan Xi to leave. Except for the initial period, Yuan Xi wasn’t difficult to get along with, and Luo XiaoLou now treated him like family. As for their current relationship, Luo XiaoLou had carefully considered that if Yuan Xi didn’t leave him, it would be a good way to live.
If Yuan Xi were to leave, he would probably find a place to focus on being his own mecha maker. Occasionally, he would look at the already successful Yuan Xi on the news and reminisce about their days together. What a doggedly sadistic love story! He must have been infected by 125.
But what is Yuan Xi doing in a place like this?
Luo XiaoLou inexplicably followed Yuan Xi through the door.
Yuan Xi swiped through the communicator, and the robot at the door reported, “Three A-class tickets.”
Flattered, the tailed 125 looked at Yuan Xi. That tyrant was willing to buy it a ticket!
Luo XiaoLou looked around curiously. It appeared to be a fully-functional leisure club, with all kinds of ball games, practice grounds, a sky cinema, and a high-class amusement park. Yuan Xi led Luo XiaoLou inside to the medicinal bath hot spring area.
Luo XiaoLou finally understood Yuan Xi’s purpose. He probably wanted to take advantage of the last day of the holiday to get away. They brought the Tyrannosaurus Rex-type pet with them to the changing room, and 125 conscientiously took off his T-shirt and grabbed a small white towel to wrap around himself.
While Luo XiaoLou changed, Yuan Xi stood stunned in the doorway, looking up and down at Luo XiaoLou’s exposed white body, his face starting to turn black as he regretted choosing such a place. The little slave’s body – it’s better to just look at it himself.
“Come on, it’s hard to come to a place like this.” Luo XiaoLou urged.
Yuan Xi glared at him then turned to walk outside.
The further he walked outside, the more ugly Yuan Xi’s face became. Damn, what the hell do all these people mean by looking at my side?!
The two of them found a corner where no one was sitting. Yuan Xi shoved Luo XiaoLou inside a few times and grumbled unhappily, “Only know how to attract bees and butterflies. Too unselfconscious. Let’s sit inside.”
Luo XiaoLou, not so happily, scooted in again and muttered, “Don’t you think those people are looking at you?” he suggested admiringly, as he glanced at Yuan Xi’s body. With a face and body like that, who the hell is inviting the butterflies?!
Yuan Xi froze and glanced sideways, his face finally eased up. He closed his eyes and started to soak in the hot spring. After a while, Yuan Xi slowly leaned in and put his head on Luo XiaoLou’s white shoulder. From this angle, his view was unobstructed.
Unconscious of Yuan Xi’s gaze, Luo XiaoLou sighed comfortably and was about to fall asleep when he suddenly heard Yuan Xi whisper, “Thirsty.”
Luo XiaoLou frowned, opened his eyes and started to get up. Yuan Xi stared at the pink color on Luo XiaoLou’s chest. Also, due to the steam of the heat, Luo XiaoLou’s face had a red blush that was even more seductive than usual. Yuan Xi glanced warily left and right, and said with a pale face, “You sit down, I’ll go.”
Luo XiaoLou continued to sleep with his head tilted back, and 125 sat in the shallow water with a couple of young kids who tugged on his big tail from time to time, until he was literally about to blow up.
At noon, they comfortably emerged from the spa area and went to the buffet.
When Luo XiaoLou came back with a plate, he saw some students from other schools talking around Yuan Xi. Walking over to the table, Luo XiaoLou heard the young man in the lead say, “I really just simply admire you, and I hope you can give me some pointers on the actual field.”
Luo XiaoLou looked the young man over twice, the man was almost as beautiful as Cyril, but Luo XiaoLou thought the man looked a little uncomfortable. He was secretly surprised that his own aesthetics wouldn’t be affected by 125, as long as the ones with beast genes were the prettiest and such…
Luo XiaoLou put the food down without moving, and those people looked at Luo XiaoLou and then at Yuan Xi.
“I’m not free.” Yuan Xi suddenly said, then took the food Luo XiaoLou brought and posed as if he was ready to dine. Idle people can fuck off.
The beauty had no choice but to say, “That’s fine, if you have something to do, I’ll ask you some other time. It’s just that it’s a rare encounter. So can I take you out to dinner?”
Yuan Xi looked at him coldly and said indifferently, “I said no time.”
The faces of the surrounding people were all embarrassed. One person seemed to be out of breath and wanted to say something, but was stopped by the leading young man. The beauty continued politely, “Excuse me, I’ll see you sometime.”
Only after saying that did he walk away with the group of students.
Luo XiaoLou frowned at the people walking away and then looked at the carefree Yuan Xi without saying anything.
In the afternoon, Yuan Xi took Luo XiaoLou to the opera on a floating chair. In the middle of it, Yuan Xi noticed that Luo XiaoLou and 125 had already started sleeping and snoring.
He looked at Luo XiaoLou’s face with a black line on his own. This date was really a failure…
However, Luo XiaoLou didn’t feel that way at all, and on the way back, he was very energetic, telling Yuan Xi, “That opera at the end was really nice, the sofa was very soft and comfortable, and it was so nice to float slowly in the air. The medicine bath and lunch were actually good too. We should come back sometime in the future.”
Yuan Xi drove the car without paying any attention to Luo XiaoLou, but the corners of his mouth curled up.
The next day, the holidays ended and Saint Miro Academy officially opened.
Luo XiaoLou and Yuan Xi’s school life began. On the first day of school, there weren’t many classes. Although it wasn’t a semester for students to start school, the school was still very grandly decorated. Saint Miro Academy had invited a famous master to give a lecture, and when the time came, all the students from both departments would have to attend.
At exactly ten o’clock in the morning, several vice-deans of the school and the head of each year personally waited to greet them at the main gate. Several black cars slowly approached and stopped in front of Saint Miro Academy.
The first to get out was a young man with black hair, wearing the Saint Miro Academy school uniform, which was Ling Xu.
The old man said politely to Ling Xu, “Thank you, Young Master Ling, for giving this old man a ride.”
Ling Xu smiled and said, “Master Yan is polite. It just happened to be on the way.”
At this time, one of the vice-deans took a step forward, curtsied respectfully to Master Yan and said, “Teacher, it’s rare for you to take the time to come over.”
The expression on Master Yan’s face softened somewhat and said, “I just happened to be busy with a project recently, so I came over when I had time.”
A few of the teaching deans also greeted him with a smile and greeted, “Master Yan, welcome to Saint Miro Academy.”
Master Yan nodded with a serious expression and exchanged pleasantries with the crowd.
Shen Yuan exited a car in the back, greeted Ling Xu with a smile, and followed Master Yan inside. Master Yan was ushered into the senior conference room, where several vice-deans and deans accompanied him to talk, and before long, Saint Miro Academy Headmaster Alston walked in with a smile on his face. It was well known that Master Yan and Headmaster Alston were close friends.
Master Yan got up from his seat and the two old friends embraced each other.
The headmaster laughed and stated, “Master Yan is getting bigger and bigger, even though I have invited you several times. In a few years, I won’t be able to invite you.”
Master Yan looked at the headmaster, snorted, and retorted, “I don’t dare. No matter how busy I am, with a word from you, Headmaster Aston, I would have pushed off all the work and rushed here. Rather, you, this busy man, are now all business.”
The several vice-deans and deans were already used to the habit of these two good friends meeting each other sarcastically, and they all smiled at the exchange.
Then, Headmaster Aston and Master Yan talked about the recent students of the school, when a vice-dean spoke up, “Speaking of which, our headmaster is already bragging at every turn that this year, our school Mecha Department has recruited three S-grade gifted students.”
A Senior Year Dean sighed, “It’s a pity that all the good students were caught up by old Wang’s class.”
The First Year Dean Wang was proud of himself, but he replied modestly, “There are quite a few good new students recently, but there are still exceptions. Let’s take a freshman from the Mecha Manufacturing Department who had extremely poor grades, and was actually a poor student who had been entrusted with the job. To this day, he still hasn’t paid his tuition, and gave the school an IOU.”
Several deans came over to listen, even the vice-deans were a little curious about this particular poor student.
At this point, Dean Wang recalled that Master Yan was a mecha maker, and some of his students were selected from Saint Miro Academy, such as their vice-dean. Shen Yuan, who was behind Master Yan, was once a talented student of Saint Miro Academy, and was favored by the head of Kane’s Mecha Research Department.
He got up the idea of recommending a good talent and said with a smile, “By the way, our current Mecha Manufacturing Department’s first year genius student is also very rare. The student’s name is Yang Ke. He can be called here to show Master after the meeting.” If Yang Ke could really win Master Yan’s favor, I’m sure he would miss his recommendation in the future.
As soon as the name came out, Shen Yuan immediately frowned. Master Yan looked at Dean Wang and said, “Don’t bother, Dean Wang. I have just taken in a young apprentice.” Saying that, he turned to Shen Yuan and said, “Since you’re here, call my apprentice over to say hello.”
As soon as this was said, even Headmaster Alston was a little surprised, “Old Yan, you’ve taken in another apprentice?”
Master Yan raised his eyebrows proudly and proclaimed, “First one, and also a closed door disciple. By the way, he was also selected from your school’s Mecha Manufacturing Department.”
The vice-dean was stunned. Master Yan had already denied disciples for more than ten years, and the fact that the first apprentice was a closed door disciple meant that this was the last disciple of Master Yan who really had a chance to learn all of Master Yan’s crafts. The vice-dean couldn’t help but be moved and said, “Master, what is the name of this young disciple?”
“Luo XiaoLou,” Master Yan said dryly, as Shen Yuan had already turned on his communicator to contact Luo XiaoLou.
First Year Dean Wang’s face changed. The IOU he was holding in his hand, the name underneath was exactly Luo XiaoLou. What were the chances of two people having the same name?
Dean Wang wiped the top of his head, which didn’t have many hair strands, and asked with some luck, “Is your apprentice a Class One student?”
Master Yan looked sideways at Shen Yuan, and Shen Yuan immediately said, “It seems not, I only heard him mention it lightly once, and he seems to be a Class Ten student.”
Headmaster Alston became interested and joked, “It’s really rare! You actually managed to pick a Class Ten student from our school.”
Dean Wang’s face completely changed. Some of the other deans and vice-deans also noticed. One of the vice-deans quietly gave a wink to Dean Wang and took the IOU in his hand, laughed awkwardly a few times, asked to be excused and walked out.
Master Yan was notorious for protecting his people, so now the vice-dean had to contact the payment office immediately to waive Luo XiaoLou’s tuition fee in its entirety.
Luo XiaoLou, who had no idea that he was getting so much attention, was now in the Payment Office. He handed fifty thousand brand new Federation dollars to the teacher at the window and said with a smile, “Teacher, I’m here to pay the amount I owed six months ago.”
