Luo XiaoLou walked out of the Mecha Association only to turn on the communicator that had just been turned off and was relieved to find no record of any communication from Yuan Xi. Instead, there was a message from Tian Li asking him to join him for lunch.
Luo XiaoLou looked at the time, he hadn’t missed lunch and Yuan Xi didn’t seem like he would come out anytime soon, so he turned around and headed off to the side of the club. Finding an empty room with the help of 125, he took off his make-up and changed before going out the other door.
The public restaurant was on the third floor, where free meals would be provided for the contestants, and while they were nutritious, they were all paired packages, and you could choose what you liked but not what you wanted.
Tian Li was used to spending a lot of money, so if he was here, he would have dragged Luo XiaoLou to the fourth floor. But when he arrived at the restaurant, Luo XiaoLou couldn’t reach Tian Li, who was usually busy and inconvenienced by his presence.
Luo XiaoLou didn’t struggle for long and was ready to solve the lunch problem on the third floor.
Luo XiaoLou frowned when he suddenly spotted a somewhat familiar figure in the middle of the room. He intended to turn around, but the person had already seen him with a sharp eye and immediately shouted, “Luo XiaoLou, you stop!”
Saying that, the man gave a wink to the people around him, and those people quickly came over and surrounded Luo XiaoLou.
Luo XiaoLou looked at Luo ShaoFan who was blocking him, glanced around again and asked somewhat depressedly, “What do you want?”
When he arrived at Planet Kami, he was so nervous about the game that he let his guard down for other things. Now that he actually encountered this ghost, especially when he was alone, it was a bit troublesome for him to get away.
Luo ShaoFan revealed a smug smile, “You should know very well what I’m looking for you for. Yuan Xi is competing inside and there’s no one to protect you. I won’t make it difficult for you. As long as you hand over that thing, I won’t bother you again.”
Luo XiaoLou was silent for a few seconds. If he kept pestering him like this, it was only a matter of time before Major General Luo noticed him. Luo XiaoLou quickly thought of ways to get out of it and solve the aftermath, while on the surface he calmly said, “I don’t have that thing with me. Let’s wait until after the competition.”
He had to find a way to gag Luo ShaoFan once and for all.
Luo ShaoFan’s eyebrows stood up and his face immediately turned ugly, “Don’t tell me such childish lies. You can’t just put that kind of thing anywhere. If you don’t give it to me, then you won’t be leaving today, and I have plenty of time to spend with you. However, if you hand it over nicely, I — I can give you some money.” Luo ShaoFan wasn’t going to miss this opportunity, catching Luo XiaoLou on his own was too hard. Then Luo ShaoFan mentally counted his allowance, he was so determined to get that necklace even if it meant giving Luo XiaoLou something.
According to Ms. Jin, they used to live in poverty, and maybe that’s why Luo XiaoLou chose to suck up to Yuan Xi and sell himself into slavery — the thought of it made Luo ShaoFan feel superior.
So, half a million for Luo XiaoLou? Luo ShaoFan silently calculated in his heart, and finally planned to give Luo XiaoLou 200,000.
Although Major General Luo doted on him, it was Madame Luo who was in charge of all his pocket money. It was quite a large amount.
After years of living a luxurious life, he had been used to enjoying everything. As a result, he didn’t want to be compared to the surrounding students, and so he bought everything that was good, so there was even less money in his hand.
At this time, the person next to him suddenly pulled Luo ShaoFan and whispered, “ShaoFan, it’s Ling Xu.”
The group was stunned and looked back to see Yang Ke, and two other middle-aged people with serious expressions, accompanying Ling Xu over.
Luo XiaoLou understood at a glance. Next to them was the elevator that led upstairs.
Luo ShaoFan also honestly stepped forward, greeted Ling Xu respectfully, and took a few steps to the side to make way for them. Because both Luo ShaoJun and Luo ShaoTian were friends of Ling Xu, Luo ShaoFan naturally knew Ling Xu. To be honest, he was a bit afraid of this sharp-eyed Ling family young master.
Luo ShaoFan deliberately stood in front of Luo XiaoLou and blocked him from view when he made his way to the side. Now he could only wait for Ling Xu to pass by first. He was going to bring Luo XiaoLou to where he stayed. If Luo XiaoLou didn’t agree, he would just search him and find another way to obtain that thing.
“You guys are going to dinner?”
When he suddenly heard Ling Xu’s icy voice, Luo ShaoFan almost thought he was hallucinating. In the past, Ling Xu never took the initiative to talk to him. After being stunned for a moment, Luo ShaoFan hurriedly replied, “Yes, Ling Xu.”
“Come up together.” Ling Xu dropped a commanding statement and went straight upstairs.
The rest of them all looked at Luo ShaoFan, not knowing what to do. Luo ShaoFan also had a bitter face, but he didn’t dare not to go. He stared at Luo XiaoLou with a fierce expression and whispered, “Behave yourself later, if you dare to play tricks, I won’t spare you.”
That said, what if after dinner, Yuan Xi came out from the competition? If Ling Xu had been willing to invite him to dinner on some other day, he wouldn’t have been happier. But this hard-fought opportunity had been spoiled by Ling Xu, and Luo ShaoFan only felt unlucky today.
Luo ShaoFan and the five or six men followed Ling Xu into the elevator, a few of them still surrounding Luo XiaoLou to prevent him from escaping.
A middle-aged man directly pressed the button for the seventh floor. Ling Xu didn’t look this way, but Yang Ke raised his eyes from time to time to observe.
The environment on the seventh floor was much more advanced than the fourth floor, and it was all filled with private rooms. Except for the classical music and the waiters standing quietly in the corridor, there were not many customers outside.
A tall young girl in a waiter’s uniform came over and said with a smile, “Young Master Ling, this way please.”
Luo XiaoLou was even more depressed. Ling Xu probably didn’t want to see him, moreover, if Yuan Xi found out that he and Ling Xu were eating together, it would be weird if he didn’t have a falling out.
At this time, a middle-aged man said something to the young girl, who immediately said, “I’ll arrange it right away.”
It was only when the crowd walked into the private room that they discovered that it was extremely large and elegantly decorated, with three tables. It seemed that this was the middle-aged man’s arrangement, and it would be too pricey to have Ling Xu and that group of people at a table.
Ling Xu sat at the top table, and only after he had sat down and nodded did the rest of them take their seats.
Luo ShaoFan was still hesitating about which side of the table to sit on, but Luo XiaoLou had already taken a table by himself. Yang Ke sat next to Ling Xu, while the two middle-aged men looked at Luo XiaoLou’s table, which was originally supposed to be theirs. Now that it was taken, they also sat on Ling Xu’s side.
Luo ShaoFan hesitated for half a day and didn’t dare to sit at Ling Xu’s table, but sat at the other table with those he knew.
Luo ShaoFan took the orders for them, but when he saw the price, his face started to turn pale. However, since Ling Xu had asked them to come together, he should be treating them.
Luo XiaoLou, on the other hand, had a table to himself and was in a much better mood than earlier. He tapped on his communicator to take a glance, but Yuan Xi hadn’t come out yet, so he took the menu from the waiter.
He stalled for as long as he could to wait for Yuan Xi or Yates to come out, but if they didn’t, then he could always invite Yuan Nuo, who had exchanged communication information with Luo XiaoLou the first time he came to their home.
Luo XiaoLou was stunned at the prices on the menu. Luo XiaoLou took one look at Ling Xu and muttered in his heart, the rich and privileged class was so annoying.
Enduring the heartache, Luo XiaoLou ordered a few dishes, then took out Yuan Xi’s card and said, “I’ll order for myself, thanks.”
Now whenever it was time to eat, Yuan Xi’s card had become very handy and convenient. Besides, he didn’t want Yuan Xi to misunderstand that he was eating with Ling Xu’s group.
Ling Xu didn’t look this way anymore, but the waiter still looked at Ling Xu at the main table with a bit of trepidation. But when the waiter saw that he didn’t say anything, he simply took Luo XiaoLou’s card.
Meanwhile, Lio XiaoLou didn’t even notice that Yang Ke and Luo ShaoFan were looking at the card in amazement. Platinum cards, which could only be obtained after spending 300 million federal coins on the card and after examining the card owner’s profile.
Yang Ke had seen Ling Xu use it, and Luo ShaoFan only knew Luo ShaoJun and Luo ShaoTian who sometimes used the platinum card to spend money. Now they were both shocked to see Luo XiaoLou casually take one out.
Luo ShaoFan thought even further, that it might not be a good idea to give Luo XiaoLou 200,000, and he looked even worse at the thought.
Luo XiaoLou gulped down his saliva. Although the price was too high, the food was full of color and aroma, which made it very appetizing.
Before Luo XiaoLou moved his chopsticks, the waiter brought Luo XiaoLou an exquisite glass and a bottle of red wine, and poured a full glass for him.
He didn’t order any wine. Just as Luo XiaoLou was about to speak, one of the middle-aged men had already stood up, “I’ll have a drink with you all on behalf of Young Master Ling, cheers first.” He said before tilting his head back to drink.
Luo XiaoLou stared at the glass of wine and then quietly looked up to Ling Xu’s table. He saw Ling Xu’s dark eyes staring coldly in his direction. Luo XiaoLou cursed in his heart, picked up his glass and drank it. No matter what, this person had just saved him from trouble, so it was really not wise to offend him now.
Luo XiaoLou’s mind was fixed on getting out of the situation. He knew he shouldn’t drink, but because he was toasted by Ling Xu, Luo XiaoLou ended up drinking three glasses of wine. After that, he pretended he hadn’t seen them and didn’t touch the wine again.
At first, it was not obvious, but eventually, he was not clear whether it was because the wine was too strong, or because his body could not drink as much — he got dizzy and lay down on the table.
When Ling Xu finished eating, the rest of the group followed suit and put down their chopsticks. Ling Xu didn’t look at the group again and got up to walk out. One of the middle-aged men came over to pick up Luo XiaoLou, and when Luo ShaoFan saw this, his face was red, but he didn’t dare to say anything else.
Yang Ke, who was even more drunk than Luo XiaoLou, was held up by the other man and followed behind Ling Xu.
Luo ShaoFan watched as Luo XiaoLou was taken away, before biting his teeth and turning to leave as well. He knew that Luo XiaoLou had met Ling Xu before following Madame Jin to the Luo family, but didn’t the two no longer have any more relations with each other…
“Hey, wake up, if Yuan Xi sees you, you’re dead.” 125 shouted in Luo XiaoLou’s ear, trying to wake Luo XiaoLou up.
Luo XiaoLou struggled to open his eyes, but despite his struggle, he could only rub his ears, and was carried into the elevator. When Ling Xu arrived at his place of residence, he swiped his card to enter the room, and the middle-aged man helped Luo XiaoLou inside and placed him on the couch.
Luo XiaoLou was drunk, but since the taste of the wine was good, he was smiling, squinting and laying there honestly. Because of the alcohol, his face was red, and his clothes were messy, revealing his white chest and slender collarbone.
Ling Xu had plenty of beauties around him, and even Yang Ke was no worse than Luo XiaoLou, but looking at him like this, Luo XiaoLou’s body radiated seduction. The middle-aged man lowered his eyes and withdrew.
Ling Xu looked down at Luo XiaoLou, bent down slowly, and caressed Luo XiaoLou’s face with his fingers.
This person once looked at him with such adoring eyes, this person told him that without his love he would feel no attachment, this person… Ling Xu’s finger unconsciously touched the corner of Luo XiaoLou’s mouth, and Luo XiaoLou gently opened his mouth and sucked the finger into it.
The warmth and the gentle licking of the tongue made Ling Xu’s body immediately stiffen, and he looked incredulously at Luo XiaoLou on the couch.
Even his pets were all according to his requirements, and not many of them dared to seduce him. Ling Xu’s face became complicated. Luo XiaoLou became like this, was it because Yuan Xi trained him? Such a well-behaved body, such a seductive style… Yuan Xi really knew how to enjoy himself.
Ling Xu looked at Luo XiaoLou and moved the finger in his mouth for comfort, but Luo XiaoLou’s eyebrows furrowed and he slapped him. Ling Xu was dumbfounded. Although he dodged it, he pulled his finger out too.
Narrowing his eyes, Ling Xu pushed Luo XiaoLou into the couch. He waited until Luo XiaoLou opened his eyes in confusion before slowly speaking, “Luo XiaoLou, the last time —”
The atmosphere in the room was becoming more and more ambiguous, when suddenly at this moment, the communicator on Luo XiaoLou’s wrist suddenly rang. Both of them were stunned, and Luo XiaoLou immediately raised his hand and clicked on the connection.
Ling Xu heard Yuan Xi’s growl, “Where are you?!”
Luo XiaoLou was so frightened that he sobered up a bit, raised his head and looked around in confusion. When he discovered Ling Xu so close to him, his face immediately changed and he stammered, “I, I don’t know where I am, you wait, I’ll see.”
As he said this, he climbed off the sofa. But he was so drunk that he couldn’t walk at all, so as soon as he got off the couch, he just fell on the floor with a yelp.
“What the hell is wrong with you?” Yuan Xi yelled again.
Luo XiaoLou was helped to his feet by Ling Xu. But Luo XiaoLou took one look at him, pushed him away, and wobbled towards the door, while begrudgingly replying as he did so, “I, I was eating at the restaurant and I just accidentally bumped into a table.”
Yuan Xi didn’t know what else to say before Luo XiaoLou ended the communication. He rubbed his forehead and looked back at Ling Xu and said, “I’m sorry to bother you, I didn’t mean to pester you. I need to get back right away, can you open the door?”
“Luo XiaoLou, I want to talk to you about that old incident.” Ling Xu said suddenly.
Normally, Luo XiaoLou would be very curious, but now he could only think about how to hide this entire incident from Yuan Xi. Besides, he wasn’t fully sober yet, so he just smiled back and said, “The past? Ling XiaoLou, the person who was willing to listen to what you used to say, is no longer here.”
Ling Xu looked at Luo XiaoLou with a sunken face for a few seconds, came over and swiped his card to open the door. Luo XiaoLou walked unsteadily without looking back towards the elevator.
Luo XiaoLou entered the elevator, then pressed the button for the third floor, and found a table to lie down the moment he reached the third floor. He felt dizzy and like his whole world was spinning, and as for Luo ShaoFan blocking him earlier, he had forgotten all about it.
Yuan Nuo and the others stared at Luo XiaoLou, who had slept on the table without caring for his image. This guy not only did not wait for his cousin to eat with him, but also got himself drunk. After the last time when he had been a guest, Yuan Nuo unconsciously treated Luo XiaoLou as the other half of Yuan Xi, and in his heart, he looked at Luo XiaoLou directly with the standards of his sister-in-law. But at this moment, he immediately felt that Luo XiaoLou was nowhere as qualified.
Yuan Xi’s face was even more ugly as he looked behind him at Yue Shang and Su Lan and said, “You guys go eat, I’ll go back to my room.” He picked up Luo XiaoLou and headed to the elevator.
Yuan Xi came out from the tournament and ended up contacting the person who was supposed to be nicely waiting for him inside the room, but he responded only after being contacted several times. To add insult to injury, he’d also already gotten himself drunk.
Yuan Xi ordered room service and sat down to eat on the couch in the dark, thinking about how he was going to teach Luo XiaoLou a lesson later.
Luo XiaoLou was left behind him as Yuan Xi ate.
Luo XiaoLou rolled over and hugged Yuan Xi from behind, in a very natural and customary manner. And before Yuan Xi could even speak, Luo XiaoLou moved closer, and rested his head on Yuan Xi’s lap and even rubbed against it twice.
Yuan Xi slowly thawed. Luo XiaoLou was really good when he was drunk, and at least certain perks would be plenty. With Luo XiaoLou having not let Yuan Xi touch him for two days, Yuan Xi was even more pent up. After a quick lunch, Yuan Xi carried Luo XiaoLou to the bathroom.
In the bathroom, Luo XiaoLou, who had been stripped naked, leaned against Yuan Xi and clasped both hands around his neck, refusing to let go no matter what. Whenever Yuan Xi pulled him away, he would always squeak twice in dissatisfaction, and occasionally calling out Yuan Xi’s name in a low voice. However, when Yuan Xi stopped moving, he would pester him again.
Yuan Xi held Luo XiaoLou in his arms for a while, and although he wasn’t sober, the pleasure wasn’t diminished at all. Luo XiaoLou also posed in a variety of positions, which was very entertaining, and Yuan Xi was completely satisfied as he worked his way, together with him, from the bathroom to the bed.
Dinner was served in their room, and Yuan Nuo, who had come to see Yuan Xi, gave a knowing look, shrugged his shoulders and left.
The next morning, 125 waited for Yuan Xi to leave before it dared to enter the room and wake Luo XiaoLou up.
Luo XiaoLou woke up rubbing his sore back, frustrated at the obvious marks all over his body.
“Yuan Xi, that bastard. This is simply taking advantage of the situation.” Luo XiaoLou said in frustration. He had a match today and he really didn’t want to be brushed off so soon.
125 gave him an exaggerated look and couldn’t help but honestly say, “I don’t think so. In fact, you were the one who seduced Yuan Xi yesterday. No man could have endured in that situation, I have that experience.”
“……” 125, what did that last sentence mean?
Luo XiaoLou got up quickly, ate breakfast, then found a place to change his appearance and clothes, and then rushed into the arena.
He thought he would be unable to move, but surprisingly or embarrassingly, after the uncomfortable feeling from when he first woke up, he had almost recovered. Ah, maybe that 125 guy is right, this body flexibility is very good indeed.
Luo XiaoLou tried his best to look as unobtrusive as possible as he walked into the common room, but as he entered, he was being watched.
Luo XiaoLou looked across the room only to see Luca, much to his frustration. What were the odds of meeting this person and how did he meet him the second day?
Luca’s cold gaze followed Luo XiaoLou. He even took a few steps forward and snickered in a low voice as he approached Luo XiaoLou, “I’ve been waiting for this day, I’ve got a way to defeat you.”
