The First Interstellar Energy Gambler - Chapter 61.2
In its early years, the Xing family had once produced an imperial general with a power level of five who made great achievements for the Empire. With the support of this general, the Xing family gradually became one of the four major families of the Empire. Unfortunately since then the Xing family has declined. Xing Mo had been trained by his father and other family members since childhood to be the future head of the family. He was once admitted to the Imperial Military Academy in order to enter the army and once again lead the family to glory.
However, after it was found that his ability could not be upgraded, the family members gradually changed their attitude, and even gave up on him altogether after Xing Shang revealed his mental ability.
That’s why after Xing Mo found a way to become stronger with Lin Luo’s help, he didn’t have any idea of returning to the family or the army. He just wanted to live a good life with Lin Luo.
But now, he found that he had been too naive.
He needed to keep getting stronger. He needed to be able to protect his lover and family. He needed to let Lin Luo be able to shine without fear, and he himself shouldn’t need to be afraid of doing things anymore…
The next day, at nine o’clock in the morning, it was the time for the hidden bid winners to be revealed.
When revealing the bids, just like with the open bidding, bids were to be revealed sequentially according to number and batch. After each batch was finished processing, the winning bidders’ smart bracelets would receive payment reminders. After paying the corresponding amount, they would be allowed to go to the open auction hall to collect their jadeite.
Lin Luo waited worriedly for the smart bracelet pop up.
His luck was not bad as he won three bids in a row, but the winner for the piece of carbonized jadeite that he cared about the most had not yet been announced.
As the time was approaching for the unveiling of the carbonized jadeite winner, he almost stopped breathing.
After feeling the vibration of the smart bracelet and seeing the number he was looking forward to the most on his winning bids list, he almost jumped up in celebration. After transferring the payment with shaking hands, he dragged out Xing Mo and rushed in the direction of the open auction hall.
At the place where the jadeite was collected, there were already long queues of people. Fortunately, the open auction hall was well-staffed and the handover was very fast, so no one appeared impatient.
“Brother Xing, did you win any jadeite?” He Kun and Xu Jian were also lining up, and after seeing Lin Luo and Xing Mo in the back, they ran over and asked.
Xing Mo shook his head. Although scattered bidding is also a good method, the jadeite that he won would not be counted under Lin Luo’s points even if they cut a big increase, so he didn’t buy any jadeite.
“That’s great! Can you help us to take a spot in the stone cutting area then?! Xu Jian and the others will be in line soon. I’ll ask them to pick up the jadeite and bring it to you.” He Kun saw that there were too many people who came to receive hidden bid jadeite and worried that the stone cutting area would be overcrowded, so he thought of letting Xing Mo, who didn’t buy any jadeite, hold a spot in line for them first.
Xing Mo looked at Lin Luo and silently asked his opinion.
“Ha ha, He Kun, you are so smart.” Lin Luo smiled and bent his eyes, and let Xing Mo go quickly.
“Alright, but you stay with him here.” Xing Mo glanced around without a trace and, after seeing Ling WenHua hidden in the crowd, left with confidence.
“Xiao Luo, how many jadeite did you win?” He Kun asked curiously.
“It seems to be five pieces…” Lin Luo placed more than 20 bids, but only won five. Except for one piece that he bet on just to cover up his abilities, the other four would all come out at a profit. The most important piece of carbonized jadeite was also among them.
“Wow, your luck is really good. I bet on seven or eight bids and only won one. I spent more than 1 million credits. I don’t know if I can win money on it.” He Kun sighed.
“Of course you can, isn’t your luck always good?” Lin Luo patted him on the shoulder and comforted him.
“Ha ha ha, that’s true.” He Kun was a very cheerful and outgoing person, so he quickly cast aside this little trouble and pulled Lin Luo to talk about other things.
Soon it was their turn to collect their jadeite. The handling robot put Lin Luo’s five pieces of jadeite into the basket and transported them out. After Lin Luo saw his piece of carbonized jadeite in the basket, he was finally able to breathe a sigh of relief.
“Xiao Luo, did you buy a piece of jadeite from the Federation? This kind of jadeite is not common in the Empire. I heard that the gambling on it is very high, either it will rise high or completely collapse.” He Kun saw the extra large piece of ‘black charcoal’ jadeite in Lin Luo’s basket at a glance, and gave Lin Luo a thumbs up.
“Ha ha, let’s go, Brother Xing is still waiting for us in the stone cutting area.”
“Alright, let’s go.”
When the two of them walked outside, they also met Andre. Andre also came to collect jadeite. Most of his jadeite had sold, and only two pieces were stopped by him. The harvest was very good. After learning that Lin Luo and the others were going to the cutting area, Andre said that he would come look for them after receiving his jadeite.
Lin Luo and He Kun brought their jadeite to the stone cutting area. As they had worried, it was already overcrowded. Almost every stone machine was crowded with people.
“Xiao Luo, here.” Taking advantage of his height, Xing Mo saw Lin Luo at a glance and beckoned at him. Xu Jian and Zhao XiaoLei had already set their stones in front of the stone cutting machine in front of him.
The author has something to say: It’s changed=3=the next chapter will cut the stones, of course it can’t be colorful…but it must be the kind that is very valuable~~ hee hee~~
