Believe It Or Not, I Already Caught You - Chapter 71
By the time Lou Ming rubbed his sore eyes and was dragged down from the second floor by Chen Yu, Tian Fei had already served the hot meal on the dining table.
“Third Brother, even if you’re busy with work, you can’t skip meals. When I’m not full, I can’t even calculate what one plus one equals what, so how can you possibly do scientific research on an empty stomach?” Chen Yu exaggerated.
“That’s exaggerating it.” Lou Ming couldn’t help but laugh. “Can’t you even add one and one?”
“Ah … when I was in elementary school, I did not eat breakfast one time, and the math teacher asked me what’s the sum of one and one. It took me a long time to calculate,” Chen Yu said.
“Why didn’t you eat breakfast?” Lou Ming asked curiously.
“I was still young, and just started the first grade. The mountain road to school is rough. While walking down the road, I accidentally tumbled halfway through, and the money that my grandpa gave me to buy breakfast dropped.” Chen Yu recounted, “So, I had no money to buy buns.”
This was the first time Lou Ming had heard Chen Yu talk about her childhood experience. Through Chen Yu’s description, he seemed to picture a little girl crying sadly on the mountain road because she lost one Yuan. It was then that he suddenly understood why the little girl loved money so much.
“Third Brother, eat, ah.” Seeing the dazed Lou Ming, Chen Yu could not help but remind him.
“Okay.” Lou Ming picked up his bowl and chopsticks and slowly ate, while Chen Yu sat on the side admiring the amulet she had just received.
“Master Mao is really powerful. This amulet is especially powerful, and is beautifully crafted.” Chen Yu marveled. “I’m worried about how to carry such a large jade pendant on the body conveniently.”
The ancients were fond of wearing jade accessories around their waists, so the jade pendants brought from the South were very big. However, modern people were no longer into this fashion. It would certainly not look good to have such a large piece of jade hanging around your neck. Therefore, Chen Yu specially selected several small jade pendants when she picked, just to make it convenient for her family to carry it with them. However, she obviously didn’t expect Master Mao to also take into account the shape when helping her refine the amulets.
Could it be that he thought breaking a jade pendant into several pieces could save a lot of jade material and allow him to make more amulets? After all, the power of the amulet would not be affected by the size of the jade pendant. The more Chen Yu thought about it, the more she thought that her guess was right. It turned out that Master Mao was also such an economical person.
Lou Ming smiled faintly and never mentioned that he had found someone to polish the jade pendant in advance.
“Bzz-bzz-bzz!” Chen Yu was sitting, when the compass on her suddenly began to vibrate fiercely.
At the same time, Chen Yu sensed a hostile intent. She turned her head to look, only to see Tian Fei slowly walking over holding a wooden box.
“Assistant Tian, what are you holding in your hand?” That hostile intent was coming from the wooden box.
“The Bronze Sword…” Barely did Tian Fei’s words fall when the Bronze Sword in the box followed with a restless vibration, as if in response to Tian Fei. Tian Fei almost lost his grip, but after a startled jump, he tightly held the box in his arms.
“Don’t you come any closer. Back up,” Chen Yu ordered. She even retreated two meters away.
“What’s wrong?” Tian Fei also withdrew far back in fright.
“This Bronze Sword is too vindictive. Why is it fiercer than before?” Chen Yu said aggrievedly.
“What’s going on?” Sensing the fury of the Bronze Sword, Lou Ming asked in surprise.
“It’s because I fought with it previously at the Research Institute, so it holds a grudge against me and wants to attack me every time it sees me.” Chen Yu added, “Last time, I borrowed it to cut a soul chain, and it cut my finger. This time, it’s even more exaggerated. It’s still several meters away, but it’s actually bubbling with killing intent.”
“Will the Bronze Sword attack you?” Lou Ming questioned in surprise.
“Yeah, it’s a particularly petty sword.” Chen Yu said, walking a few steps toward Lou Ming. Just when Chen Yu was about to reach Lou Ming, the Bronze Sword, which had just been quieted down because of the distance, suddenly vibrated fiercely again.
Tian Fei gripped the wooden box tightly in his arms, but the Bronze Sword was vibrating too fiercely, and Tian Fei was having some difficulty restraining it.
Sensing that killing intent anew, Chen Yu dashed two meters away in retreat. In the instant Chen Yu backed away, the Bronze Sword immediately calmed down again.
“Assistant Tian, quickly carry it away. Don’t let it fly out all of a sudden,” Chen Yu just couldn’t understand why this sword found her so disagreeable.
“Oh … Oh.” Tian Fei froze for a second. He was just about to carry it away when Lou Ming suddenly called him to a stop.
“Hold on.” Lou Ming stopped Tian Fei and strode toward the Bronze Sword. The closer he got, the more complicated Lou Ming’s expression became. Lou Ming sharply felt the Bronze Sword’s mood, which slowly changed from anger to joy.
“Cackle-cackle-cackle…” Lou Ming approached it hesitantly, and the Bronze Sword happily hit the wooden box, as if greeting him.
“Quiet,” Lou Ming ordered in a deep voice.
“…” The trembling wooden box instantly became silent.
Chen Yu’s mouth widened in surprise: “Is it jealous that I took advantage of Third Brother?”
Lou Ming stumbled and almost fell down.
