The First Interstellar Energy Gambler - Chapter 105.1
Chapter 105: Outcome Revealed
Lin Luo also changed to a chrome knife and started cutting his stone.
The chrome knives on the two jadeite cutting machines were running at high speed. Everyone’s eyes were fixed in the direction of the two machines as they waited to see what kind of jade would be cut out by the knives on each side.
There was a crashing sound as Lin Luo’s first knife cut on his side was completed. With this cut he directly cut off the section that was eaten into by the black tinea scabs. The crowd saw that the newly cut surface was affected by the cracks, and the whole expanse turned into pieces of broken jade.
【It’s over, it’s over… the fissures have eaten it!】
【It seems that this piece of jadeite has completely collapsed…】
【Yeah, although the transparency and crystal structure wasn’t bad, it was all affected by the cracks and the whole piece has no value left at all, not to mention the dull color…】
The more the stone was cut, the more the bet seemed to collapse. Almost no one was optimistic about Lin Luo’s side.
At this time, Liang Chao’s cut was finally finished. He eagerly washed the cut surface with the water gun, wanting to see if his knife could cut out something good.
However, his luck didn’t go any better than Lin Luo’s. The knife only cut into a section of black fog.
Although black fog also liked to run along jadeite skin, it couldn’t be said that it was totally bad. Sometimes it would encase high quality jade and other times it would only contain garbage. The most important thing to look at was the thickness of the black fog, and the fog in this piece was dark and thick with a gray bottom.
【Ha ha ha ha ha, it’s black fog!】
【I’m relieved after seeing Liang Chao’s section.】
【Such a big area is full of black fog, and it looks really thick. I think he probably doesn’t have any way to win.】
【Don’t be happy too early. The value of the jade that Liang Chao bet on just now was worth a whole ten thousand more than Lin Luo’s piece. Even if he loses the second gamble like Lin Luo, he’ll still win the game.……】
【What!!!! No way!!】
No matter how enthusiastic the audience was, Lin Luo’s performance was still calm and unhurried. He carefully observed the cut section before making another cut.
On Liang Chao’s side, he changed to the grinding wheel as he was ready to grind away the fog in order to see things more clearly. Although the jade’s situation wasn’t looking very good so far, betting on jadeite had always been something that even immortals couldn’t predict. Maybe he had actually won the bet?
Furthermore, at the very least Lin Luo’s bet on his own gambling stone had already collapsed in half. As long as the crack ate into the jade a little deeper, Lin Luo’s piece of jadeite would be a complete bust. At that point even if the piece of jadeite in his hand also completely collapsed, the victory would still belong to him!
As he thought of the situation along those lines, Liang Chao’s speed of grinding his stone accelerated a lot.
The black fog was ground away little by little, and the exposed mouth turned out to be a glossy and bright green.
【Is that green?】
【Fu̲c̲k! Is it really green? !】
【God doesn’t bless Lin Luo!!!】
【Dog sh̲i̲t luck!!!】
The viewers on StarNet could hardly believe their eyes.
Liang Chao’s breathing became rapid, and his cheeks were a little red. He didn’t expect that his bet would actually rise! He couldn’t believe it turned out to be green!
Ha ha ha ha ha! Even the heavens were helping him!
Liang Chao’s gaze towards Lin Luo couldn’t help becoming contemptuous. He was just a fledgling kid that had dared to provoke him, but in doing so he went off and shot himself in the foot! Liang Chao couldn’t wait to see the expression on the kid’s face after losing to him!
Lin Luo, who seemed to feel Liang Chao’s malicious gaze, raised his head and gave him a deep look.
For some strange reason when he looked into Lin Luo’s clear eyes, Liang Chao’s heart shrank suddenly, and he felt as if he had nowhere to hide in front of the other party.
Obviously it was just a little boy in his early twenties…
The brief exchange between the two attracted the attention of StarNet audiences. After all, they could watch it up close in a 360° holographic mode with no dead angles.
【Sh̲i̲t! He gets a little bit ahead and suddenly he thinks the light shines just for him! Is he really provoking Lin Luo?】
【This Liang Chao doesn’t really think that he’s set to win, right?】
【Hey, you’re going too far! Liang Chao is winning by his true ability, so why can’t he be proud of it?】
Fans of Liang Chao couldn’t help but speak up, then a lot of trumpets came out and started boasting about Liang Chao’s past record. This made Lin Luo’s fans angry, and both sides immediately started arguing with each other, making the official StarNet message area a mess.
Fortunately, the movement on StarNet didn’t affect the two people in the arena. Lin Luo’s hand holding the chrome knife stayed firm. He knew very well that he couldn’t lose.
On his second, third, and fourth cuts, Lin Luo whittled away at the jadeite little by little. It wasn’t until the fifth cut that the spread of the cracks finally stopped. Lin Luo threw away all the broken jade shards and used the water gun to wash the new section clean, and finally a satisfied smile appeared on his face.
【Ha ha ha! The crack stopped! The crack stopped!】
【Looking at the size of the remaining material, you should be able to solve two or three kilograms of jade! Lin Luo didn’t lose!】
【This color seems a bit strange, though. Is it transparent?】
