The First Interstellar Energy Gambler - Chapter 113.1
Chapter 113: The Battle Begins
In the end, with the help of Lu WenShan, Lu Chun chose the extremely rare piece of elephant skin jadeite as the jadeite he would be using in the battle.
Lin Luo wasn’t surprised that they would choose that particular jadeite. After all, from the outside that jadeite looked the best. However, Lin Luo knew that no matter which piece of jadeite they chose, he would still be the one who won in the end.
After the two sides had reached a consensus, Lu WenShan contacted the people from the Stone Gambling Association to apply for a stone gambling battle.
After receiving the message, the people from the Polis branch of the Stone Gambling Association immediately sent their staff members to the scene.
Twenty minutes later, two association members in the black uniforms of the Stone Gambling Association arrived along with several staff from the organizers of the Gambling Stone Rally.
Since the gambling rally was being held here, the people of the Stone Gambling Association had made relevant preparations early to ensure that they would be able to rush to the scene as quickly as possible when something happened. Also because the person who was being challenged in this stone gambling battle was Lin Luo, who had recently become popular on StarNet, the people from the gambling association deliberately contacted the organizers and asked them to maintain order by preventing excessive crowds of onlookers.
“Challenger Lu WenShan.”
“That’s me…” When Lu WenShan reported his ID number, the expression on his face was still one of embarrassment. Even with his identity and qualifications, he still came to do a stone gambling battle with a new stone gambling expert. It really made the situation look a bit like he was trying to bully someone weaker than himself. Unfortunately, because he and Lu Chun were members of the same family and he was currently employed by Lu Chun’s company, he was unable to say no when told to come out to challenge Lin Luo. In the end, regardless of whether he won or lost, there was no way for him to come out of this looking good.
“The challenged, Lin Luo.”
“That’s me.” Lin Luo stepped forward and reported his ID number to the staff of the Stone Gambling Association with a light smile on his face.
“Have the two sides’ battle materials been selected?”
“Yes, we’ve both chosen.”
“Please show them to us.”
Lin Luo pointed to his half-person height thunder stone jadeite, while Lu WenShan pointed to his elephant skin jadeite.
After seeing Lin Luo’s thunder stone jadeite, the staff of the Stone Gambling Association frowned slightly. After all, it was well known that thunder stone jadeite generally didn’t produce good jade, while the elephant skin jadeite from Lu WenShan was very good. It seemed to them that before the match had even started that who would be the winner and who would be the loser was already clear.
Since Lu WenShan came later on, there weren’t any spare stone cutting machine at the moment. As such the organizer was required to coordinate with the venue so that the two could cut their stones at the same time.
“Mr. Lin, don’t you need to replace your piece of jadeite?” While waiting one of the staff members considerately commented to Lin Luo.
Lin Luo smiled at the kind staff member, “No need, but thank you.”
When the staff member saw that he was firm in his decision, he had no choice but to give up. Shortly after another staff member gave him a slight tug and said in a low voice, “Are you stupid? This is the famous Lin Luo! He’s best known as being the weak underdog who went on to conquer the strong and there have been many times when he had won excellent quality jade from scraps. Don’t worry about him too much.”
The staff member who spoke up had more than a hint of excitement in his voice when he spoke. In fact, he was a fan of Lin Luo’s. When he saw Lin Luo’s name on the assignment task, he immediately dragged his partner over excitedly.
His partner also lowered his voice and said, “It’s not that I’m looking down on him, just that his opponent this time is too powerful. That’s a stone gambling expert of the older generation of the Lu family. He once scored into the top five of the professional rank of the Stone Gambling Tournament!”
Hearing that, the staff member couldn’t help but be stunned. He didn’t expect that the mand who looked to be on the older side of middle-aged to be so talented and started to grow worried for Lin Luo.
At this time, people from the organizer’s side came over and said that they had set up two adjacent jadeite cutting machines and sectioned off an area to be used as a battlefield.
The group of people quickly came to the venue on the edge of the stone cutting area. It was already overcrowded, as once people learned the area was to be used to host a stone gambling battle, they all flocked over seeing as everyone in attendance at the rally was a stone gambling enthusiast. However, the organizer’s staff members were responsible for keeping order, and they made sure that everyone watching maintained a safe distance from the cutting area.
Since Lin Luo’s jadeite was a relatively large piece, the Han brothers took the initiative to help him carry it. Meanwhile Lu Chun’s gambling stones were all carried by his bodyguards.
“Today, on behalf of the Stone Gambling Association, I hereby bear witness to the stone gambling battle between the two stone gambling experts Lu WenShan and Lin Luo. The winner will take home the jadeite that was cut by the loser as well as their own.” The staff of the Stone Gambling Association had started up the holographic recording mode on their light brain and said loudly, “I will ask you again now, do you both agree to the above conditions?”
