The First Interstellar Energy Gambler - Chapter 124.2
“It’s okay, I can wait.”
“Don’t worry, you won’t be forced to wait for too long. After the production is completed, I’ll have it personally fetched for you and have it delivered to your home.”
“That’s far too much trouble for you…”
“No trouble, no trouble! It’s my honor to be of assistance, Master Lin!”
In the face of Yan Xing’s insistence, Lin Luo had no choice but to reluctantly agree.
However, Lin Luo was still very satisfied with the results of this assessment. He had completed the task at an extraordinary level this time, and the title of top energy engineer would surely be of greater help to Yin Ye’s plan.
Yan Xing originally wanted to send Lin Luo to the door personally again, but he just happened to receive a message from headquarters that made it so he could only go back to the management office.
By the time Lin Luo walked out of the Energy Administration, his registration information had been changed to show the title of top energy engineer, but of course he wasn’t able to display a badge.
A large number of reporters were still gathered at the gate of the Energy Administration, and all of them were craning their necks to look inside. Under the watchful eyes of everyone, Lin Luo certainly couldn’t climb over the wall again, so he could only bite the bullet and walk towards the gate.
“This person seems to be Lin Luo?” The sharp-eyed reporter recognized Lin Luo at a glance. After all, his exposure rate had been so high recently that it was impossible for the reporters to fail to recognize him.
“Did Lin Luo also come to participate in the senior energy engineer level assessment? Didn’t he obtain the certification as a mid-rank energy engineer as recently as last month?”
“He isn’t wearing a badge on his chest! He failed the assessment!” Another reporter shouted excitedly.
At this moment, the reports all had explosively catchy headlines titles full pop into their minds such as “Genius Energy Engineer Encounters Waterloo! Overconfidence Leads To Failure!”.
Lin Luo, since his debut, had yet to have any negative news and always seemed to be surrounded by various halos that would prevent problems. There was nothing more eye-catching than the fall of a genius!
The reporters waiting at the door descended upon Lin Luo excitedly like hungry wolves who had seen their prey.
“Lin Luo! Were you also here to participate in the senior energy engineer qualification assessment?”
“You’re not wearing a badge, so doesn’t that mean that you failed the test?”
“What are your feeling about encountering your first Waterloo?”
“What was your assessment score? Was there a big difference from the passing line?”
“Will you come back to take the assessment again next time?”
A series of questions from the reporters shot at Lin Luo like a barrage of cannons, causing him to be confused and dizzy, but he still patiently answered the reporters’ questions.
“I was here to participate in the assessment, yes. I passed the assessment and obtained the certification for top energy engineer. My score was…”
However, before Lin Luo couldn’t even finish speaking before some reporters couldn’t help but interrupt him, “Top energy engineer? I haven’t heard that the energy division has this certification level.”
“And even if you say you’re a top energy engineer, why don’t you have a badge?!”
“Are you only saying that because you don’t have the courage to face failure?”
Lin Luo frowned slightly and immediately lost the interest in explaining. Anyway, everyone would soon know the full details of the matter and be able to see for themselves what was the truth and what was not.
“What I said is true. I did pass the assessment and obtained the certification for top energy engineer.” Lin Luo replied with a calm face, “Please let me through. My ride is here.”
Although the reporters were not reconciled, they couldn’t prevent Lin Luo from leaving, so they could only give way.
After Lin Luo got on the hover car and left, the reporters couldn’t wait to start writing what they thought was the ‘truth’.
The reporters didn’t believe Lin Luo’s words at all, and it wasn’t the first time they had come to the assessment site to stand guard. They had never seen any candidate who passed the assessment without a golden badge, let alone heard of anyone who said they came out with the title of top energy engineer.

Eye-catching headlines began to appear on StarNet one after another, and every report was centered around the fact that Lin Luo didn’t have a badge.
Any news about Lin Luo would inevitably cause a certain sensation on StarNet.
Countless fans went to Lin Luo’s social media platform to leave messages, asking for the truth about the matter.
They didn’t believe that Lin Luo would lie about this kind of thing because it was meaningless to lie about things that could be torn apart at a glance. They were even more curious about what a top energy engineer was.
Lin Luo’s reaction was calm, and he only posted a very brief update. The post was of two screenshots. One of them was a picture selected from the information pulled up on StarNet containing information on top energy engineers, while the other picture was from Lin Luo’s updated registration information in the Energy Administration. It professional qualification column clearly stated that Lin Luo’s professional title was none other than that of top energy engineer.
The whole network was in an uproar. This incident seemed to be true! Lin Luo really passed the assessment and became a top energy engineer!
The author has something to say: Gu QiuYang: I want to say mmp but I don’t know if I should say it or not…
 MMP – 媽賣批 [Mā Mài Pī] – slang for ‘m̲o̲t̲h̲e̲r̲f̲u̲c̲k̲e̲r̲’, also translates more literally to ‘(your) mom’s a w̲h̲o̲r̲e̲’
The reason I didn’t list “Top” as an Energy Administration rank several dozen chapters back when I posted a chart was because it’s not a common title. There are two senior energy engineers who can make excellent grade element liquids, but it seems like neither of them nor anyone else in the Empire currently has the rank.
