Editor: Sulo is wheezing at the super awkward interaction between the two ಡ ͜ ʖ ಡ
Yuan Xi’s face flushed red. He just stared at Luo XiaoLou, opened his mouth several times, but was so stunned that no words came out.
125, who was pretending to be asleep, was so anxious that its tail flicked. But Luo XiaoLou was ignorant of these, and staring blankly at Yuan Xi, he asked again, “I like you, will you be with me? Will you?”
Yuan Xi’s face was almost dripping blood as he finally yelled, “Sh, what words! You like me? I — of course, I know you like me! Ahem, I mean, I… I will!” The words were very much gnarled.
125, who had its ears flopped up to listen to the conversation, was shocked by such a confession and answer — it almost vomited blood and became even more stiffly paralyzed there.
Luo XiaoLou was relieved, but also felt that he should leave a good impression on his newly confirmed partner. However, he’d never been very good at this whole relationship thing before, and Josa didn’t need him to impress her. Instead, she often teased him that he didn’t know anything about love and marriage — in fact, neither he nor Josa knew much about it.
Dark eyes, short, straight hair, pursed lips, pale skin, and a perfect appearance that was often overlooked because of the unconscious harshness he unleashed — not the least that Luo XiaoLou, who was missing something, was fascinated by his lover’s handsome face, which would make one want to worship him even if he were only wearing the Saint Miro Academy uniform.
Down to the first button, the clothing gave Yuan Xi an air of forbidden beauty — an illusion that Luo XiaoLou knew all too well.
Wait, the first button, Luo XiaoLou laughed dryly and immediately loosened his grip on Yuan Xi’s collar. In order to hide the image of the fierce wife who had just pursued her cheating husband, Luo XiaoLou even gently patted Yuan Xi’s hand, smoothing out the wrinkles that he had created.
“Yeah? You agree? That’s great. We can — well, just humble each other when necessary — and live together very happily in the future. You see, we don’t even have to adopt a child, we can be a family of three.” Luo XiaoLou said happily.
Yuan Xi looked down at Luo XiaoLou, who was lying obediently on top of him, just in time to see his beautiful collarbone from the collar of his half-open pajama shirt, and his eyes darkened. “A family of three, do you mean it?”
Luo XiaoLou turned to look just in time to see 125, who was trying to sneak away, stepping down with its tail up, only to be immediately plant itself still in nervous after being mentioned by Yuan Xi.
“Ahem, yes. Although its appearance is a bit bad, it’s better than being very skinny.” Luo XiaoLou felt deeply like the stoic parent explaining his drag queen son.
Seeing the room door open and then shut close, Yuan Xi knowingly shrugged before saying, “We’re perfectly capable of having our own children. Wait, we should discuss when we’re going to go back first. I want to take you back to meet my parents, and then of course we’ll meet yours. After getting their approval and discussing a date, we can have the ceremony.” At the end of the sentence, Yuan Xi had a foolish smile on his face, and anyone who knew him would find it hard to believe that such a smile could actually appear on his face.
Luo XiaoLou stared at him and stammered, “To, to meet your parents? It’s too early, and my parents… I’m the equivalent of an orphan. Heck, and what ceremony do you mean?”
Yuan Xi gave Luo XiaoLou a confused glance, “Of course it’s the wedding ceremony.”
Luo XiaoLou’s hands were starting to shake, to give him such a big thrill in one day! He… he really just decided that he liked men, and then he was about to marry one right away!
But there was also a hint of emotion in his heart as Yuan Xi, who seemed so innocent, was so responsible for their relationship and thought so far ahead.
Luo XiaoLou thought for a moment and said, “Here, just to be on the safe side, we’d better meet your parents later, and the wedding can wait until after we graduate from college.” Tying the two of them together so early, what if Yuan Xi or he regretted it and domestic violence happened every day…
Yuan Xi’s eyes narrowed to a glare, “How dare you push things around? The sooner we get married, the better! Of course, it’s so you don’t have to keep hooking up with wild men behind my back!”
Luo XiaoLou’s fingers began to itch again, God, what to do, the image he had just tried to maintain — he wanted to destroy it now, and he wanted to smack Yuan Xi! However, Luo XiaoLou silently endured it, but more importantly, he wouldn’t dare.
Luo XiaoLou was thinking about how to talk to Yuan Xi, when he noticed that Yuan Xi was getting closer and closer. Yuan Xi seemed to be intending to mess up the sheets with him. Luo XiaoLou shrank back and suddenly remembered something, and with a glare in his eyes, asked, “Hey, you still have the nerve to accuse me? You actually stayed out all night!”
Yuan Xi stopped moving and observed the outraged Luo XiaoLou in amazement, but he said with resignation, “Your plot is definitely much more serious than mine, and it’s repetitive! I’ve had enough of the people who are circling you!”
Luo XiaoLou was also furious, “I’m just a normal friend to them. It’s better than those random bamboo horses you’re kissing!”
Yuan Xi paused and suddenly looked at Luo XiaoLou in confusion and asked, “How do you know that Yue Shang kissed me?”
Luo XiaoLou on the bed, froze, and cold sweat trailed down his back. He forgot this, really — the beauty was the one in the wrong, ah!
Luo XiaoLou shuddered slightly and uttered for half a day before finally squeezing out, “I, I was just passing through there.”
Yuan Xi looked at Luo XiaoLou for half a day, and when Luo XiaoLou was already planning on how to confess everything to Yuan Xi, Yuan Xi broke his deep silence and said, “So you’re still going there — to observe me secretly? Is this an attendance check? That, if you ask me, I’ll tell you the truth.” Yuan Xi whispered, his eyes quietly moving.
Luo XiaoLou almost vomited blood, but he acquiesced to this jealousy-induced stalker-like approach — fuck, he should have followed them and gone to see what they did if he knew he’d be labeled as such!
“You still haven’t told me the reason.” Luo XiaoLou found himself asking, while mourning his increasingly outrageous image.
“Well, last night, I fought against Yue Shang in the virtual pod.” Yuan Xi said, before thinking about it and adding, “If you’re not satisfied, I’ll tell him not to kiss me. But you have to admit, you’re much more excessive than I am — so we should just get married right now. What aren’t you satisfied with?!”
At the end of the conversation, Yuan Xi’s anger began to rise again.
Luo XiaoLou was also furious and asked, “What about you? You get a free cook, sidekick, hourly worker, and a companion to sleep with when necessary, and what are you not satisfied with?!”
Yuan Xi looked at Luo XiaoLou in his pajamas, and his heart suddenly moved. At this moment, what he felt was actually not irritation but warmth, and he felt that he loved his wife’s complaints. Yuan Xi’s face was a little red again. He gave up arguing, made a move forward, without taking off his clothes, and crushed Luo XiaoLou on the bed.
“Hey, hey, I have class today, don’t pull my clothes —” Luo XiaoLou’s weak voice was suppressed.
Yuan Xi hadn’t slept all night, but still made it through their ‘exercise’ energetically, then dragged Luo XiaoLou to sleep until noon. Luo XiaoLou missed classes for the first time in college, but at least it was just an Ancient Music Appreciation class.
The two woke up and had another argument in bed, but in the end, they each took a step back. They decided that after they had participated in the mecha competition, if Yuan Xi won first place, Luo XiaoLou would go back with Yuan Xi to meet his parents.
“How sure are you of this?” On the way to class, Luo XiaoLou pretended not to care and asked.
“Yue Shang has beaten me before, and we’ve won and lost against each other, but don’t worry. This time, I’ll try my best.” Yuan Xi said with a glance at Luo XiaoLou.
I’m not worried about anything, really……
After school in the afternoon, Luo XiaoLou hesitated, but insisted on going to Radiance. Tomorrow was the weekend and he would be going to Master Yan’s, so he probably wouldn’t have time to go over there to practice.
A few days later, Luo XiaoLou was still doing basic movement training, and he found that his progress was very slow, nowhere near as fast as his progress in mecha making. Seeing the students from Class 9 and Class 10, Luo XiaoLou couldn’t help but wonder if Yuan Xi and the others had also been training since they were young, which was why there was such a big gap between him and them.
After observing Luo XiaoLou’s basic movements for a week, 125 gave him a suggestion: Luo XiaoLou should spend one hour training in basic movements, one hour practicing speed, and the last hour practicing physical strength.
When Luo XiaoLou took a break midway through his training, Rocky, who had been watching him silently, suddenly said, “From now on, add speed to your training. It will bring unexpected results when necessary.”
Receiving the exact same advice as 125, Luo XiaoLou suddenly admired Coach Rocky. One had to know that although 125 had a different personality, its database was truly the most advanced in all of Federation, and the training plan it helped him develop was definitely the most suitable for him.
Luca and his two followers watched the video of Luo XiaoLou’s training in the public training room and gave a scowl.
The two next to him also laughed and said, “Looking at his level of trash, it would be a fantasy for him to win against you.”
Luca grunted and walked out of the observation room with confidence. Coach Todd had also specifically found him and told him to make sure he won this matchup to beat that harsh and rigid Rocky. It seemed that this was simply a matchup that was no longer shrouded in doubt.
“125, do you think it’s possible for me to win?” Luo XiaoLou wiped his sweat and got back to the starting point to begin another speed training session. It had been a week now, and he had improved but in a pace that was entirely for beginners. In his current stage, it would probably still be difficult to participate in a fight.
“…… Well, if you do what I tell you, you should have a chance.” 125 was silent for a moment before replying.
“I’m comforted that you’re still able to say such things now.”
That evening, after Luo XiaoLou prepared dinner, he went up to the lab again. In the past two days, he had made more than thirty energy boxes using ‘replication’, and mailed fifteen of them to Manager Gao. This time, Luo XiaoLou didn’t deliberately pick energy boxes under 10,000 Luo, but instead there were energy boxes that were at 9,000 Luo, as well as around 12,000 Luo. There were even two 15,000 Luo energy boxes mixed in.
Since Manager Gao knew that he was Master Yan’s disciple, there should be no doubt about his ability to increase the Luo.
On Saturday morning, the day Luo XiaoLou went to work for the Kane Group group, Luo XiaoLou purposely woke up early, prepared breakfast and lunch for Yuan Xi, and then went out on his own.
But before he entered the gate to the Kane’s Group, he saw a silver hover car parked at the gate, and Ling Xu, the young master of the PDG family, leaning against the car as he stood beside it.
