Editor: Sulo will do anything for Luo ShaoTian (ෆ’∀’ෆ)
A day and a night later, and by the time Luo XiaoLou slept and woke up again, they had arrived on the planet Kami. Luo XiaoLou was peering out the window when the ship pulled into the harbor, having never had the chance to travel except to that barren asteroid.
With over four thousand years of history behind him, the high-tech, political and economic development and scale of Planet Anse had been beyond his imagination. However, it was only in the present day on Kami that he realized that the Class A planet was much more prosperous than the Class B planet he was on.
The mecha and various famous cars that flew through the sky from time to time were obviously much more advanced than the ones on Planet Anse, and there were armies on the road. Observing the buildings near the port, Luo XiaoLou dripped with sweat and realized that his small apartment was no match for this place.
Unlike Luo XiaoLou, who had entered the Grand View, Yuan Xi was sitting at the window, elegantly sipping his juice and raising his hands with a hint of nobility and good breeding that could not be ignored.
“We’ve arrived. Do we need to pack our things first? We’ll be going down soon, right?” Luo XiaoLou couldn’t help but ask.
“I don’t think so, it will take at least fifteen minutes. I suggest you eat breakfast first. Later, the contestants will have to report to the hall first.” Yuan Xi interrupted Luo XiaoLou, holding himself back from yelling at the person who was looking at Luo XiaoLou with a mocking look not far away. However, it had to be said that Luo XiaoLou was also too excited to be fussing all this way.
The good thing for Luo XiaoLou was that although the tickets were incredibly expensive, the food provided in the ship’s first class cabin was very good. Toast, omelette, ham, salad and juice.
While he was eating, the communicator on Yuan Xi’s wrist rang, and he quickly clicked on the button. His face was cheerful and his voice was not like his usual self.
Luo XiaoLou looked at Yuan Xi from time to time as he ate, and by the time he finished eating, Yuan Xi also ended the communication and easily said, “Yuan Nuo and the others have arrived, and will come over later to pick us up to report.”
That kid was dragging others over? Luo XiaoLou asked in confusion, “Even high school students can participate in the mecha competition?”
“Not in theory, but the exception is Yuan Nuo, who got his own charter,” Yuan Xi said, looking at Luo XiaoLou who couldn’t believe it, and added, “Judging from his mecha handling skills alone, he’ll have no problem making it into the top ten of Mecha Department Class One.”
Luo XiaoLou stopped talking, suddenly feeling darkened on the path he was taking to compete.
Ten minutes later, the ship’s hatch opened and the passengers disembarked one by one.
Sure enough, within a few steps, a stretched hover car pulled up in front of them. The doors quickly opened and a beautiful young girl in a white dress stepped down, smiling at Yuan Xi, “Brother Yuan Xi, it’s been awhile.”
The voice was so sweet that it made Luo XiaoLou’s mouth tremble. Yuan Xi remembered to grab the young girl as she jumped over. As he did so, Yuan Xi subconsciously took a glance at Luo XiaoLou.
Tian Li and a few Mecha Department boys were drooling over the sudden appearance of a beautiful girl, but Luo XiaoLou noticed that another person had also gotten off the stretched hover car, Yue Shang.
A car came to the port to pick up Yuan Xi, followed by a dozen or so Mecha Department boys. When Luo XiaoLou got on the bus, he found Yuan Nuo sitting with a cold face and legs crossed in front of him with a glass of wine.
Yuan Xi was pulled by Yue Shang and the pretty girl to sit on the other side of the table, while Luo XiaoLou was pushed to the side with Yuan Nuo. What’s even more tragic was that in addition to the awkward young man on one side of the table, on the other side of the table was the silver-haired Luo ShaoTian.
Ever since the last time he met Luo ShaoTian, Luo XiaoLou hadn’t known what mode to use to get along with this slightly blood-related brother.
At this time, Tian Li, who was behind him, leaned into Luo XiaoLou’s ear and said, “Damn, Brother Yuan is really a rich man. I’ve wanted this car for a long time. By the way, how come the genes in Brother Yuan’s family are so good? That little beauty is too hot for me, do you think I should —”
The beauty in the white dress was Yue Shang’s maternal younger cousin Su Lan, who had grown up with Yue Shang in Yuan Xi’s home, and so she had always called him Brother Yuan Xi.
Luo XiaoLou looked up at Su Lan and Yue Shang who were clinging to Yuan Xi, turned to look at Tian Li and said with a smile, “Didn’t you swear last time that you had given your heart to Tang Jia from the Mecha Department?”
Tian Li choked, glared at Luo XiaoLou, and honestly stepped down. Yates was a mecha fanatic so when it came to beautiful women, it was like he was missing a string.
As for Mu Chen, Tian Li snuck a glance at the guy beside him who was looking down at the rules of the game. This guy was even gloomier and scarier than Yates, and he really didn’t understand why this Mecha Department student, who didn’t need him for mecha overhaul or anything like that, chose him as a mecha maker anyway?
Shit, will he have a day where he’s put on display as a vase too? Ah, speaking of which, it can’t be because he’s handsome…
Yuan Nuo held a glass in his hand and observed Luo XiaoLou as he drank. He realized that his brother had been surrounded by the cousins for half an hour, but Luo XiaoLou still sat next to him without turning a hair.
After a while, Su Lan was sent over by Yue Shang and sat across from Yuan Nuo. She occasionally raised her eyes to coldly look at Luo XiaoLou for a few moments. Is this the person cousin said lives with Brother Yuan Xi? Su Lan’s eyebrows furrowed. This person can’t even compare to Brother Yue Shang and me!
Yue Shang saw that there was no one else beside Yuan Xi before leaning to his ear to say a few words.
Yuan Xi’s face became serious and he asked, “Sent someone over?”
Yue Shang nodded and whispered a few more words.
Yuan Nuo, finally seeing the troubled look on Luo XiaoLou’s face, put down his glass with satisfaction and leaned in, “That’s the person my uncle and aunt chose for my brother, so if you really want to be with my brother, you’ll have to find a way to compare with him. And, from all sides.”
Luo XiaoLou was stunned, anguish showing on his face as he looked up towards Yuan Xi. Being lovers was so helter-skelter, there was really as much happiness as anguish. And even if Yuan Xi’s parents agreed, he’d probably be bothered by Yuan Xi’s dabbling for a long time.
Over there, Yuan Xi was stunned for a moment and whispered, “Better to kill by mistake than to let go.”
Yue Shang immediately nodded, “Don’t worry about that, uncle also means the same thing.”
“They’re talking about annihilating all the exotic beasts.” Yuan Nuo suddenly said.
Luo XiaoLou’s hands trembled and he tried to remain calm as he looked at Yuan Nuo and said, “What exactly happened to make Yuan Xi hate exotic beasts so much?”
Hearing this question, Yuan Nuo’s face instantly changed as well, and the proud young man lowered his head, clutching the wine glass in his hand tightly, and said after a long while, “My parents, Yue Shang and Su Lan’s entire clan, as well as my brother’s big brother, all died at the hands of the exotic beast. But that’s not all, the evil cruelty of the exotic beast is not understood by those who have never been to war. Exotic beasts are the enemy of all mankind, we will never leave one behind.”
The glass of water in Luo XiaoLou’s hand shook and slipped from his grasp. A hand suddenly stretched out from his side, catching the glass and then pushing Luo XiaoLou’s trembling hand down.
Luo XiaoLou was shocked and unconsciously tried to shake it off, but the hand was too strong and he couldn’t. Luo XiaoLou turned around in panic and found that it was Luo ShaoTian who was holding him steady.
Luo ShaoTian gave Luo XiaoLou a firm squeeze before letting go and then leaning back, his arrogant silver hair pushed back with an impatient look on his face.
Yuan Nuo snapped out of his sadness, then discontentedly stared at Luo Shaotian and Luo Xiaolou for a while. In his eyes, Luo Xiaolou was his cousin’s person and he should be faithful to him.
The author has something to say:
Yesterday I was too busy, and only wrote 2,000 words. But it’s still posted up OML, I’m really sorry everyone.
Sulo knows what’s up.
Su Lan or whatever your name is Luo XiaoLou is better in every way! At least he doesn’t just go around with a pretty face! He is an AMAZING mecha maker! Hmph!
Thanks for the chapter! ^^
Oh meu Deus, tô me apaixonando por ShaoTian(○-_-○)
Oe Xiaolou é muitooo melhor que todos!!!
This is going to be more than love triangle.
I’m very stress.
My heart hurts for XiaoLou 😭 If Yuan Xi ever thought of abondoning XiaoLou because of his exotic beast bloodline imma make a voodoo doll and curse Yuan Xi for real 📍📌 And ShaoTian looks like ke knows something 🤔 Thanks for the chapter 👍🏻♥️
There must be a misunderstanding between these 2 species..🤔
Why beauties can’t be gentle and good tempered for once? Why be aloof and condescending to people they don’t even know? This girl seriously needs to be put in her place! And with that kind of family back story, XiaoLuo will have even harder time telling Yuan Xi about his maternal bloodline.
Thank you for the chapter!!!
More family shenanigans. Hold fast, LXL.
I had a feeling the reason YX hates Exotic Beasts would be like this, but things aren’t always what they seem.
LXL’s fake mother and younger brother gave up on idea to get rid of him then? One less thing to worry over.
Thank you for translating.
That family backstory is not good. 😰 The death of many relatives will harbor deep hatred. Yuan Xi might struggle with his image of an evil exotic beast and the image of his meek lover.
Considering Luo Shaotian’s personality, it would seem out-of-character for him to comfort Luo Xiaolou. It can’t be just because LXL saved him! LST knows something!
I really thing Luo ShaoTian is the one good person in the official Luo family and may actually be LXL’s secret ally. I really hope so at least….
