The First Interstellar Energy Gambler - Chapter 113.2
“I agree!” Before Lin Luo or Lu WenShan could speak, Lu Chun had already answered first.
“Sir, you are not a contestant. Please keep quiet.” The supervising staff member from the Stone Gambling Association said to Lu Chun with a serious expression.
Since the stones to be cut by both sides were relatively large, both Lu WenShan and Lin Luo were allowed to appoint a person to help them.
Lin Luo naturally chose Xing Mo, while Lu WenShan ‘chose’ Lu Chun.
If Lu WenShan had really been able to make a choice, he definitely wouldn’t have chosen Lu Chun as a helper as he would only make him busier. But the gambling battle was Lu Chun’s idea, so how could he just stay on the sidelines and watch it?
Lu Chun shut his mouth after being reprimanded by the staff of the Stone Gambling Association.
“I agree…” Lin Luo and Lu WenShan answered at the same time.
“Okay, I now announce that the stone gambling battle has officially begun!”
It was still the case that in order to ensure the fairness and justice of the gambling battle, every stone gambling battle was broadcast live in holographic mode on the official StarNet site of the gambling association.
At around this time the stone gambling enthusiasts who spent their time lingering on the official website of the Stone Gambling Association saw Lin Luo’s name appear attached to a livestream and immediately clicked in to watch. The number of people watching the live broadcast of the stone gambling battle began to skyrocket.
【Wow! See what I found? It’s Xiao LuoLuo’s gambling game!】
【Little LuoLuo is actually the one being challenged? Who is so desperate to challenge him?】
【The name Lu WenShan seems familiar…? Seems to be a professional level boss?】
【Fu̲c̲k̲? Professional level? Is he that awesome? Then if our little LuoLuo won, then wouldn’t our little LuoLuo really make a name for himself?】
【Ha ha ha ha, what a beautiful thought from upstairs…】
While the barrage of the livestream was flying all over the sky, Lin Luo and Lu WenShan both started to cut their stones.
Because Lin Luo’s thunder stone was too big, it had to be cut apart first.
It just so happened that the obvious lightning crack on the thunder stone had almost split the stone in half anyways, so Lin Luo simply made a cut that finished separating the two pieces. Xing Mo pressed the jadeite on its side and rotated the jadeite slightly in accordance with the position of Lin Luo’s knife to facilitate the cut.
On Lu WenShan’s side, although his elephant skin jadeite wasn’t as big as Lin Luo’s thunder stone, it still weighed dozens of kilograms. Although it was smaller, the skin of his jadeite looked better and had a pleasing amount of pine flowers and python bands over its surface.
That jadeite wasn’t the kind that was able to be cut directly. It was necessary to confirm the position and direction of the jade first. To that end, Lu Wenshan decided to use the grinding wheel to slowly grind away starting at the pine flowers to see he could open a window into the jade.
The grinding wheel had barely started to turn when Lu Chun was already vying for space at the side of the machine, looking like he couldn’t wait to squeeze Lu WenShan aside and do it himself.
Lu WenShan had no choice but to helplessly ask Lu Chun to step aside before he was finally able to operate the jadeite cutting machine freely.
Thanks to Lu Chun getting in the way, Lin Luo’s stone cutting speed was faster. It only took about ten minutes for him to cut the thunderstone into two pieces.
There was some faint yellow showing on both of the cut surfaces of the jadeite. At first glance it seemed to be a yellow fog layer, but because yellow fog liked to run off the skin and had a dyeing effect on the interior jade, most people didn’t like to see yellow fog. Thankfully, Lin Luo knew that it was actually honey fog, and that under the honey fog was the surprise he was waiting for.
In any case, even if the thunder stone had been cut in half, it was still a bit big, and it still wasn’t convenient to mount it on the stone cutting machine. As such, Lin Luo removed the grinding wheel from the machine and directly held it in his hand and started using it to grind the smaller half of the jadeite.
As the fog layer was slowly ground away, a little green began to show through the sanded window. There was a little yellow in the green, which caused it to look like a boxwood leaf green.
“Lin Luo’s side had a rise in value!”
“It’s boxwood leaf green!”
Listening to the discussions of the people around them, Lu Chun suddenly became anxious, and hurriedly urged Lu WenShan, “Uncle! He’s already got jade over there! Why is it that you’ve been grinding for so long but you still have nothing?!”
Lu WenShan barely resisted the urge to roll his eyes and said in a low voice, “It will be done soon.”
Elephant skin pieces had thicker skins, so it took a longer time to grind them away. He was afraid of hurting the jade flesh inside so he didn’t dare to grind it too fast, but due to Lu Chun’s urging he couldn’t help but speed up a little.
Soon, a white fog layer appeared on the window surface that had been ground out.
“Ha ha ha, the white fog is coming out! The white fog is coming out! Uncle, don’t stop! Keep going!” Lu Chun shouted very loudly, as if he was afraid that others wouldn’t be able to hear him.
Lu WenShan took a deep breath, pushed the grinding wheel down, and continued to grind away at the white fog layer that had been exposed on the jadeite.
