The First Interstellar Energy Gambler - Chapter 80
Chapter 80: Reap What You Sow
Xing Mo looked at the roadblocks in front of him, then turned to look at the ones behind. Finally, he raised his eyebrows slightly, “What do you mean?“
“Hey boy, it’s no use pretending to be stupid! You should have just walked away, but you had to keep running your mouth. My big brother’s business was ruined by you. If you don’t pay for it today, you may not be able to leave in one piece.“The leader’s tone was arrogant, and while he spoke he popped the knuckles of his right hand with his left hand which was extremely intimidating.
Lin Luo had already understood by this point that these people should be the ones who were with the stall owner just now. When he left, the conversation with Xing Mo was heard by a guest. The guest might have originally wanted to buy jadeite, but because Lin Luo’s words made him suspicious in the end they didn’t buy it. These people felt that they had disturbed their business and wanted to profit from them.
“Is it reasonable for you to sell fakes? Aren’t you afraid that we will call the police?“Lin Luo felt incredulous. How could there be such people?
If you were in the Empire and dared to sell fakes, you would have been arrested long ago. Not only would you be fined, but you may also be sentenced. However, these people did so flagrantly, as if they had nothing to fear.
“Ha ha ha ha.” When these people heard Lin Luo’s words, they laughed out loud, as if he was telling a funny joke, “Call the police? The Tobys are stupid and rich, and the city guards don’t care unless you have an in with a lord!“
“Even if you know a Lord, it’s useless. They have to be more powerful than our boss‘s backer! “Then there was another burst of arrogant laughter.
When they saw Lin Luo and Xing Mo’s appearance and skin color, they recognized at a glance that they should be Imperials. Their race had a history of war with Imperials and were under the impression that Imperials didn’t have mechas and were weak chickens with skin so tender that they bled at a touch and cried and begged for mercy after two hits.
The average height of these aliens was more than two meters. For them, looking at Lin Luo and Xing Mo was like looking at little chickens. Thinking that they must be soft persimmons, they planned to catch them and teach them a lesson!
Xing Mo, considered to be a “soft persimmon” and a “weak chicken”: …
“Hurry up! Hand over the 500,000 credits, and we’ll pretend nothing happened!” The group said viciously.
“Give you half a million credit points, and you will let us go?” Xing Mo asked with suppressed anger.
These people thought that Xing Mo had been subdued, and his attitude immediately became arrogant again, “Very sure. If our brothers say they will let you go, they will definitely let you go! But to make sure you don’t come back to make trouble later, my brothers will take a little video of you two. Then it’s over.“
“What video?” Xing Mo laughed angrily.
“Ha ha ha, although you Imperials are weaker, you still look good. The soft skin and tender flesh is pretty charming.“ An alien laughed in a low voice.
“That’s right, especially this tricky kid, he looks really good when you look close. This little face is very tender. If you pinch it, I wonder if you can get water out of it…“ A person closer to Lin Luo, stretched out his hand towards him while saying nasty things with a wicked smile, seeming to want to squeeze his cheek.
The last straw broke.
Xing Mo’s figure suddenly moved and rushed to the alien at an incredible speed. His left hand grabbed the alien‘s wrist, and his right hand, which had been covered with metal, had already punched the alien.
With a ‘bang’, the alien was punched firmly and slammed into the wall with a dull sound.
The alien had thick skin and flesh. After being attacked by such a heavy punch he didn’t faint, but his cheeks swelled quickly. Obviously Xing Mo’s attack was very effective. This person was obviously stunned. He covered his face and looked at Xing Mo who was close at hand in astonishment, only to be punched on the other side of the face.
After being punched again the man became a little more sober, and immediately became enraged and wanted to fight, only to find that his wrist was still being grasped by Xing Mo. For some reason he couldn’t quite figure out, he felt like he was unable to use his strength. He looked down at his wrist and found that the place he was caught at some point had been covered with a layer of ice blue frost. Because the color was similar to his skin color, he hadn’t noticed it, but in fact the blood in his body had slowly been frozen.
“You…” Just as the man had started to speak, Xing Mo had already punched him again.
The sound of the ‘bang boom bang’ as iron fists hit the body continued, and in a blink of an eye the alien who wanted to take advantage of Lin Luo had been beaten to the ground.
The other aliens looked at the scene in disbelief. Their strong brother, who was more than two meters tall, was beaten up by an Imperial who was a head shorter. Who would believe it?
“Old Six, what’s the matter with you? Fight back!“
The alien who had been beaten into a bloody pulp opened his mouth, but before he could say anything he was again beaten to the ground by Xing Mo with another heavy punch.
“Damn! Together!“ The enraged aliens rushed towards Xing Mo as a group.
Xing Mo smiled coldly and rushed to meet them without any fear.
“Ah ah ah ah ah……”
The screams were continuous.
“Abil, ability user…” By the time these aliens finally realized that the Imperial in front of them was completely different from what they had imagined, it was too late.
When Xing Mo fought against the first alien, he had already discovered that his skin felt the same as a snake, and his body temperature was very low. Although the skin was thick and their muscles were tough to beat, their tolerance to low temperature should be very poor. After he had used his ice ability, the alien really did become sluggish and was unable to avoid being beaten at will like a wooden stake.
Therefore, after the alien group rushed over, he did not hesitate to release a large amount of ice ability, completely freezing the ground within three meters around him. The actions of these aliens also became sluggish before Xing Mo used his metal-covered fists to teach them how to behave.
At this time, an alien standing at the outermost periphery suddenly rushed towards Lin Luo, who had been standing alone. He may have stood relatively back and was less affected by the low temperature, so he was able to move freely. He knew that Xing Mo was not easy to provoke, so he planned to grab Lin Luo and force them to surrender.
It’s a pity… Lin Luo wasn’t actually as “weak” as he appeared…
Lin Luo, who was only as tall as the alien’s chest, didn’t panic when he saw the other person leaping towards him. Instead, he arched up, his hands instantly turned into sharp claws, and his mouth slowly grew out sharp fangs.
“Roar!” Lin Luo let out a low growl and scratched the opponent’s face bloody.
After all the dust had settled, the alien was dumped at Xing Mo’s feet. His face and nose were bruised and bleeding, and he kept moaning softly in pain. Although Lin Luo only dealt with one, it seemed to be the most miserable one of all…
“Before you start next time, it’s best to measure your own ability first.” Xing Mo said in a harsh tone.
“I’m sorry… we were wrong…“ Knowing that they had provoked people who shouldn’t be offended, this group of aliens who were arrogant and domineering ten minutes ago had become as cowardly as quails.
“It’s good to know that you were wrong, because you guys have wasted so much of our time. Now you apologize obediently and compensate us for the loss, and we can treat this as if nothing ever happened.“ Xing Mo directly shot back to them the ruthless words they had said before.
“You don’t need to give more, just give 500,000 credits.” Xing Mo said coldly.
“Pfft…” Lin Luo couldn’t help laughing.
Although this group of people was extremely reluctant, they had no other way but to obediently transfer money to Xing Mo’s terminal account.
The person who robbed was robbed in reverse. What was that about?!
Xing Mo looked at the balance in his account with satisfaction, and happily pulled Lin Luo back to Trade Street. He had just exercised vigorously and felt a little hungry again! It was just in time to buy something delicious for his little lover. Plus this time he could spend his own money!
After a while, the aliens who fell to the ground in the alley slowly got up, and limped out while supporting each other.
The person in the lead said with a cold expression, “This matter absolutely can’t be left alone like this. Contact the big bro immediately! Be sure to settle the score and get the money back!“
“Okay!” the others echoed.
Half an hour later, Lin Luo and Xing Mo were surrounded by a group of uniformed Toby people in front of the a barbecue stall.
“Is it them?” A man dressed in clothing of an exquisite and gorgeous black with gold trim with his head held high walked to their side and asked in a deep voice.
“Yes! My Lord Baron, it’s the two of them! They beat my brothers and robbed us of half a million credits!“ A bruised and swollen alien squeezed out from between the Toby tribesmen. He stared at Lin Luo and Xing Mo with resentment in his eyes, as if he wished to eat them both alive.
Listening to this person‘s tone, this gorgeously dressed man was a baron, and at the same time should be their so-called backing.
“Go, arrest them.” The gorgeously dressed man said in a flat tone, then turned around and prepared to leave.
