The First Interstellar Energy Gambler - Chapter 106.2
Upon hearing this, Gu SiYan looked at Lin Luo with jealousy in his eyes.
Recently, the news headlines on StarNet had all been about Lin Luo and Xing Mo. Of course he also recognized Lin Luo, but he didn’t think of himself as inferior to Lin Luo. He was no worse than Lin Luo in terms of family background, ability, or appearance! As such he felt particularly frustrated.
Lin Luo didn’t feel angry at all, on the contrary, because of Xing Mo’s defense of their relationship, he felt a sweetness in his heart. Consequently he responded to Gu SiYan with a smile due to his good mood, which only served to make him even angrier.
Gu SiYan wanted to catch up with them, but was stopped by people around him.
“Forget it, forget it… Si Yan, it won’t look good if things get out of hand. Let’s go.”
The third floor was basically all private boxes, so the environment was quiet. If they made trouble here, people would likely see them as a joke. In addition, there was a minimum consumption requirement here, so the people who dined here were all people of some influence. In case something went wrong, it would only be their family members who would be embarrassed.
Gu SiYan actually knew this too and had to leave with his companions reluctantly.
The incident had no effect on Xing Mo and the others. They were already sitting in the box and began to order happily.
The dishes at the restaurant were very rich. Xing Mo first ordered a few signature dishes, then ordered some special dishes according to Lin Luo’s taste.
After the waiter took the menu and left the box, He Kun looked at Xing Mo with an expression of wanting to gossip, “Brother Xing, why don’t you explain that bad old love affair just now?”
“I would also like to hear the explanation from the big brother and upperclassman. “A sly smile appeared on Lin Luo’s face.
Although An ZiHao was not good at making fun of his two immediate bosses due to his status as a subordinate, the curious look in his eyes showed the flames of gossip burning in his heart.
Xing Mo glanced at his lover who was deliberately needling him, and said helplessly, “Okay.”
In fact, it was simple to explain. The Gu family was also one of the four major families of the Empire. Over the past hundred years it had been on good terms with the Xing family, but unlike the declining Xing family, the Gu family gad been growing stronger. Currently, it wasn’t much worse than the Yin family. Xing Mo really didn’t have any impression of Gu SiYan though, and didn’t remember much about his childhood in general. He only knew that the two families had gradually lost contact with each other due various conflicts.
As for him having partnered with Gu SiYan at the military academy, it was purely coincidental. He only saw his partner on the day of the speech. The later mecha display itself was also an improvised invitation. Although he may have heard Gu SiYan’s name at the time, it didn’t make much impression on him. He didn’t know why this young master of the Gu family was interested in him.
At this time, the food was served. Faced with the delicious food, the group quickly put aside the trivial matter that had just occurred and began to concentrate on enjoying the food.
Lin Luo likes to eat seafood, especially shrimp, so Xing Mo specially ordered a large basin of shrimp and shelled it for him all the while. The two of them looked so sweet that He Kun was envious.
At this point, none of them paid any mind to the young master Gu, who happened upon them by chance, but didn’t expect that the meeting would later trigger a series of unexpected events…
After eating and drinking, Xing Mo went to settle the bill. Although Lin Luo said at the beginning that he wanted to treat them, how could Xing Mo as a perfect lover let Lin Luo pay the bill?
After leaving the hotel, their small group took a suspended vehicle over to the star harbor and prepared to take the nearest shuttle ship to Kipola.
The company still had many things to do. The first batch of element liquid ordered by Andre was almost ready, and the second batch was being extracted by the Energy Department, though it would take some time.
After Xing Mo went back, he still needed to recheck those element liquids. After confirming that there was no problem he could let Yin Ye arrange someone to deliver the goods. This was to be the first order filled by PengCheng Energy Company since its opening, and had to be handled carefully.
A few days after that, Lin Luo planned to participate in the Gambling Stone Rally held by the Fifth Star Territory. Not only was it a good opportunity to purchase raw materials, but it was also an opportunity for him to continue to earn points for the Stone Gambling Tournament.
In addition, he also planed to contact Wang Xun and ask him to help investigate the fact that someone inside the Stone Gambling Association had helped Liang Chao cheat.
Lin Luo looked soft on the outside, but in fact he wasn’t such an easy going person. He gave the opponent a chance to play a fair game, but the opponent only thought about cheating, which he found really abhorrent. He didn’t know how the Xing family members’ minds worked, but they never seemed to want to spend time on the upright way of doing things. Under the leadership of Xing Shang, the Xing family would only continue to become more and more crooked, though he wasn’t sure when they would realize this themselves.
This time, the Xing family would definitely go to the Fifth Star Territory’s Gambling Stone Rally to buy some raw material. When that happens, he would make sure to bleed them well.
