The First Interstellar Energy Gambler - Chapter 97.2
Because the Xie Dong and Chen Yi weren’t well-known, netizens had doubts about their testimony.
【Bulls̲h̲i̲t̲, Xing Mo is a waste who can’t even upgrade his abilities. What could he use to fight interstellar pirates? You want me to believe he’s a hero? Psh!】
【You want to say the two of you are survivors? You’re not people who were paid to speak with money, were you? I’m telling you, it’s against the law to give false evidence!】
【If you were really survivors, where were you earlier? Why did you only come out to speak now?】
A series of interrogative comments suppressed the previously building hype of the two survivors’ testimony.
However destiny seemed to be joking with them. As soon as those water army forces had guided public opinion, the military released seven short videos. These seven short videos, like those released by the news agency, were all video clips from the shuttle ship’s surveillance.
In order, it recorded the series of actions made by Xing Mo and Linluo in response to the shuttle being attacked by interstellar pirates. Although the videos were silent and the picture quality wasn’t very clear, it was still possible to infer the whole process.
They left the room, overthrew a group of pirates, changed into the interstellar pirates’ clothes, and saved a group of survivors. Then, together with the survivors, they pretend to be pirates, and finally ended up in the main bridge where they mixed into the real interstellar pirates. Once there they took advantage of the pirates’ cluelessness to counterattack.
In the videos, the pirates who were named as accomplices by the news agencies were actually survivors such as Xie Dong and Chen Yi who had deliberately dressed as interstellar pirates. They went to the main ship’s bridge not to meet with the pirates, but to take the opportunity to fight back. Once the video was inspected, it became easy to find that the masks they wore were all reversed.
Even in the video, Xing Mo used abilities, which completely broke the rumor that his abilities couldn’t be upgraded.
The netizens were in an uproar. It seemed that not only were Xing Mo and Lin Luo not traitors, on the contrary, they really were heroes! If it hadn’t been for them, those survivors would never have made it out alive!
As if that weren’t enough, the spokesperson of the military department officially came forward and briefly recounted the whole story of the interstellar pirate attack, and stated that the traitor who really colluded with the pirates was someone else. Meanwhile order to protect the survivors, it was initially unknown if Xing Mo and Lin Luo were dead or alive after the explosion of their escape pod. Since the incident, the military headquarters had been dealing with the follow-up discreetly in order to protect the survivors and not alert the main person responsible.
Now though there was obviously no way to continue to keep a low profile due to this incident. The military spokesperson commended Xing Mo and Lin Luo for their bravery and heroics, and went on to say that they would investigate the news agencies that spread the vicious rumors. At the same time, they also condemned those who maliciously guided public opinion.
The netizens who had been led by the water army before felt that they had been fooled. Those who had abused Lin Luo and Xing Mo all left sincere messages of apology. At the same time, they turned around and began to spray the water army who had maliciously guided public opinion. They could hardly wait to dig them all up one by one to chew them out.
At this time, Lin Luo finally made a move. In a move very similar to what Han XinYuan had done previously, he posted a letter of prosecution on his social media platform which listed a series of StarNet user IDs and screenshots of their remarks.
Although the hired water army forces responded extremely quickly and began to delete comments, it was already too late. Lin Luo and Xing Mo were already prepared.
Because of this incident, Lin Luo’s popularity soared once again. The number of fans following him had reached 90 million and looked like it would soon exceed 100 million, which was a treatment usually reserved for well-known masters!
On the other side of things though, the Xing family members who had initiated the entire debacle all had collapsed into a mess. They never thought that things would turn out as they had. Xing Mo, whose ability hadn’t been able to upgrade, became stronger shortly after being cast out of the family. Seeing the ability he used in the video, he had become at least a third-level ability! Naturally, they know what having a third-level ability user means for a family!
If Xing Mo was just a piece of uncut jade ore before, then he had now become a piece of precious jade. But they went and tossed this precious jade out of the family never to be taken back. Not only that, but they went and tried to upend a basin of sewage on his head…
If there had been a medicine for regret in the world, it’s likely that they would have been able to swallow eight to ten bottles right about then…

[Little Theater of Baizhu]
I feel sorry for Yuan Shang and his father, hey, is it bad to live? Others just want to see their son and daughter-in-law, but you are chasing after them. You have persecution paranoia, trembling m?
Luo Luo: Huh? Is that so?
Xing Mo: Cover your eyes, Xiao Luo don’t look, you’ll dirty your eyes.
Yin Ye: That’s right, cutie, don’t stain your eyes with this kind of thing. If you look at it, remember to wash your eyes, such as by looking at me (provoking trouble and laughing).
Xing Mo: Don’t think that I dare not beat you if you have money! I have never even called Little Cutie! Besides, if he wants to wash his eyes, he can just look at me to wash them. Is it useful to see you? It’s great to be rich.
Yin Ye: Yes, it’s great to have money.
Xing Mo: ……… (Xing Mo, who also lost money today, cried and fainted in Luo Luo’s arms in the name of looking for comfort, but actually eating tofu.)
Luo Luo: It’s okay if you have no money, I will support you, (atmosphere)
Xing Mo: Tearing up, like being struck by thunder, ah no, like being struck by Yin Ye
Yin Ye: Ha ha ha ha ha
