The First Interstellar Energy Gambler - Chapter 74
Chapter 74: Sudden Reversals
“Maybe this will help.” Lin Luo saw that Raymond’s injury was too serious, so he took out a green element liquid from the space button, which he extracted before and prepared to give it to Yin Ye for auction. .
“This is… the element liquid from your side?” After seeing the element liquid in Lin Luo’s hand, Andre’s eyes suddenly lit up. He had long heard of the magical elemental liquid of the empire, but he had never had the opportunity to touch it.
“Yes, this is a wood element liquid. After dilution, it has a good therapeutic effect regardless of whether it is applied externally or internally.”
“Thank you.” After Andre thanked him, he immediately handed the element liquid to the medical staff.
With the aid of the wood element liquid, Raymond’s situation quickly stabilized.
At this time, the space jump device was also ready. After Andre ordered it to be initiated, the starship rushed into the spacial tear at the fastest speed.
However the interstellar pirates obviously wouldn’t just let Andre and the others go so easily. Hundreds of mechas also immediately turned around, and rushed into the spacial tear following the Andre’s ship.
“Your Excellency, they are catching up!”
“Well, speed up.”
The starship accelerated again, but still couldn’t get rid of the interstellar pirate who followed immediately.
“Your Excellency, our energy shield can not hold it.” Under the concentrated fire of hundreds of mechas, the starship’s protective shield finally started to weaken.
“Well, how far are we?”
“At the current speed, there are about 30 minutes to reach the target location.”
It took longer than Andre had imagined, but he still thought they could hold on. “Everyone put on an oxygen mask and proceed at maximum speed.”
The top speed of Andre’s starship can be comparable to the speed of light, but at this speed the pressure on the human body is also very intense. An oxygen mask must be used, otherwise you may not be able breathe. Lin Luo and Xing Mo also got oxygen masks.
The interstellar pirates continued to chase them.
With a bang, the hull trembled violently and a red warning message appeared on the screen. The protective energy shield finally fell under the violent artillery bombardment. Without the shields, every following hit would go directly to the ship’s hull.
“Are we there yet?!” Andre looked at the observation screen with heavy eyes.
“Almost there!” The crew stared at the screen in front of him with sweat on his forehead.
“Ha ha ha, their shields are down! Brothers! Teach ‘em a lesson!” The interstellar pirates also found that the energy shields covering the outer layer of the starship finally disappeared, and immediately caught up with grins, ready to give them the final fatal blow.
Although the starship avoided the attacks of the interstellar pirates as quickly as possible, the starship’s right engine and flank were still hit, and began to billow black smoke…
“Prepare for an emergency landing! Everyone back to their seats!” The starship began to speed towards the nearby planet.
At this moment, several black spots suddenly appeared on the observation screen, flying from the distance extremely quickly.
“They are finally here.” Andre curled his lips slightly.
Lin Luo and Xing Mo had originally thought they were members of the interstellar pirate group, but now listening to Andre’s words, it seems that they weren’t.
The starship continued to speed towards the nearest planet, and the black spots quickly flew above them from far and near, stopping the interstellar pirate cluster that was in close pursuit. Lin Luo and Xing Mo discovered that it was a mecha team consisting of about 20 or 30 mechas. Although the number was not as high as the mechas of the interstellar pirates group, the combat power was definitely not to be underestimated. It seemed that these mechas were very similar to the mechas used by Andre and Raymond.
Sure enough, the situation suddenly reversed.
The mecha team that had just arrived, like a sharp arrow out of the sheath, fought against the mechas of the interstellar pirate group.
Their combat effectiveness was almost the same as that of Andre and Raymond. Even while outnumbered they were able to destroy dozens of mechas on the other side as soon as engaging in combat.
The mechas of the interstellar pirate group were constantly being destroyed, and finally the remnants fled in embarrassment after losing more than half.
The mecha team did not chase them. After confirming that the interstellar pirates had left, they flew towards the planet where the starship was forced to land.
Andre’s starship made an emergency landing on a snow-covered planet, crashed on the thick snow, and glided out hundreds of meters before it could stop.
“We are here. Prepare to leave the ship, and do not take off the oxygen mask.” The latter sentence was obviously addressed to Lin Luo and Xing Mo.
The two nodded, followed Andre, and evacuated the starship.
As soon as Lin Luo left the starship, he couldn’t help but shudder. The temperature on this planet was too cold. Even wearing protective clothing, he was still shivering from the cold.
Xing Mo stepped forward to protect Lin Luo in his arms, shielding him from the biting cold wind. Xing Mo was a fire ability user, so as long as he was willing he could naturally adjust his body temperature.
Lin Luo nested in Xing Mo’s arms, which made him feel better.
“Sorry, the temperature here is too low. It will warm up when you get to the camp.” Andre pointed to a towering snowy mountain in the distance, and you could vaguely see a suspended vehicle flying towards them.
Lin Luo originally thought they were just randomly landing on a deserted planet, but Andre seemed to be familiar with this place, and knew that there was a camp here, so he couldn’t help but curiously asked, “Where is this place?”
“This is planet Oaks, a resource planet under my name.” As soon as Andre’s words fell, there was a roar over their heads signaling the arrival of the mecha team.
One after another, the mechas slowly landed on the snow. The door of the mecha cockpits opened, and Federation members with the same skin color as Andre came out from inside.
They all seemed to have some element color on their bodies, but none of their injuries were serious, so there shouldn’t have been any major problems.
These mecha fighters placed their right hands on their chests and bowed very formally to Andre, “Our apologies, Your Excellency Andre. We were late.”
Andre waved his hand and said, “It is okay, you guys came in time.”
The incident happened suddenly, and it wasn’t easy for them to arrive immediately after receiving the signal, so Andre didn’t mean to place blame on them.
The mecha warriors showed a relieved expression. It seemed that they respected Andre from the bottom of their hearts.
The levitating vehicle that flew from the direction of the snow-capped mountains slowly landed in front of them. The crew all boarded the vehicle and headed to the camp, while the mecha fighters returned to their mechas and flew towards the camp.
Although the camp on Oaks wasn’t big, it had all the necessary facilities and made people feel very comfortable. There were heating facilities in the camp, so Lin Luo no longer felt cold after entering.
Raymond and the other wounded were taken to the medical center. Andre took Lin Luo and Xing Mo to their room.
“Sorry, the starship was too badly damaged to continue the flight. We may need to delay here for a few days. I have already sent someone to send a new starship here as soon as possible.” Andre originally promised to send them back to the Empire as soon as possible, but it seemed that it would have to be delayed for a few days.
“It doesn’t matter, but is there a way for us to get in touch with the Empire?”
“Your light brains should have no signal in the Federation. I will ask them to bring two mobile terminals over. There should be no problem sending messages, but without identity information other functions may remain unavailable.” The Federation’s mobile terminals were their version of the Empire’s light brains. Lin Luo and Xing Mo came to the Federation by accident through a wormhole. Since they didn’t register their identity through a formal process, they wouldn’t be able to use all the functions of the terminal. Even sending electronic messages would require Andre to enable information sharing.
“Okay, thank you.” In any case, as long as they were able to contact the Empire and report their safety to their friends and family that was enough. Otherwise they would definitely worry to death.
Then Andre had people prepare food and water for them and let them rest.
They had really struggled all day, so after eating and drinking they fell asleep after a simple wash.
The next day, Lin Luo and Xing Mo were really bored after getting up. They wanted to find Andre, to ask if they could go out for a stroll.
Even if there was snow everywhere and nothing to see, it was better than staying their room in a daze. After all, their light brains had become unusable.
The staff at the camp were very enthusiastic and took them to the back of the camp to find Andre, but when Lin Luo approached, he heard the sound of the familiar jadeite cutting machine.
Lin Luo walked in quickly and saw Andre and a few subordinates standing in front of a jadeite cutting machine. Behind them was a trailer with dozens of pieces of jadeite piled in it.
“Andre? You’re cutting stones…?” Lin Luo asked in surprise.
“Yes.” Andre did not hide, telling Lin Luo and Xing Mo that the reason why his people were here was to cut stones.
They were members of the Toby tribe, and their way of absorbing energy stones was different from that of other races. This time they played against the interstellar pirates they consumed a lot of jade. Since they were now on a mining planet with nowhere to go and nothing to do until the starship came to pick them up, they simply cut jadeite by themselves, trying to see if they could bet on jade.
“Do you need my help?!” Lin Luo looked over with gleaming eyes.
“Is it okay?” Andre asked embarrassedly.
Although he knew that Lin Luo, a powerful stone gambling expert was there, he was too embarrassed to trouble him. After all, Lin Luo and Xing Mo were implicated because of their relationship.
