With two days left before the Stone Gambling Points Battle, Bai Jing boarded a spaceship bound for the Desolate Rock Planet and accompanying him was Gu Yuanzhao.
The night before.
Bai Jing looked at Gu Yuanzhao, who was planning to go with him in confusion, “Aren’t you very busy?
Going to the Desolate Rock Planet this time will take two to three days. You don’t have to come with me.”
The expression on Gu Yuanzhao’s face was extremely relaxed, “It’s okay, I’ve taken care of everything. Other trivial matters can be arranged using a light brain.”
However during this week, Young Master Gu, the Major General of the Empire, had worked frantically on various military affairs, going without rest for three to four days and nights before he was finally able to squeeze out a little time just to be with Bai Jing.
He had really put a lot of heart and care into it.
The spaceship that the two were traveling in this time was owned privately by the Gu Conglomerate, its luxury level far exceeding that of the one Bai Jing had been in before. What’s more they were the only two passengers.
Bai Jing looked at the man half-reclining on the seat with his eyes closed slightly and his brows furrowed lightly. Even when he was sleeping, one could still feel his powerful aura.
Gu Yuanzhao must be extremely tired to abandon the perception that run in him all the time as a 3S-level powerhouse and fall asleep without any defenses.
Walking over, Bai Jing moved to tap his shoulder: “Gu Yuanzhao, go and sleep in the sleep cabin.”
However just as his pale fingers were about to touch him, Gu Yuanzhao, who had just fallen asleep, suddenly shot up and his arm, strong like a vice, quickly grabbed Bai Jing’s wrist and pinned him beneath him in one smooth motion!
Then his sharp eyes opened immediately. It wasn’t until just now that Gu Yuanzhao woke fully. All his actions just now were conditioned reflexes formed by his body over a long period of time.
Lowering his eyes, he looked at the teenager pinned beneath him.
The teenager had reacted very quickly, but unfortunately, all his movements had been suppressed firmly by the towering figure of the 3S-level powerhouse. Making it so that he could only remain in this locked position.
And because of the violent struggle, a faint flush, which was even more noticeable on his fair skin, had appeared on his cheeks.
Those teal colored eyes burned with unyielding flames and coupled with his delicate features, he was simply stunningly beautiful.
En, he was like a small animal that had been grabbed forcibly that was still trying desperately to scratch out with a claw.
Not liking this posture of being controlled by someone else, Bai Jing’s crisp voice carried a hint of annoyance in it: “Gu Yuanzhao, you’re awake now right? Let go of me.”
Looking at him with dark eyes, Gu Yuanzhao said hoarsely: “Okay.”
However just when the teenager’s expression relaxed, he leaned over and placed a kiss as light as a dragonfly’s touch on his lips.
Then getting up quickly, let go of Bai Jing while simultaneously blocking the legs and fists that came at him instantly with his arms.
It seemed the teenager was enraged, because his attacks were swift and fierce, showing no mercy at all.
It was really difficult for him to dodge all of them without hurting Bai Jing.
If it had been someone else, they would have probably already suffered fractures in several places.
After a bout of struggling, Gu Yuanzhao looked at the teenager whose back was turned to him and coughed lightly: “That….. Ah Jing, I’m going to the sleep cabin.”
Bai Jing ignored him.
Gu Yuanzhao sighed in his heart. He had been too impulsive this time.
It was just that in front of the teenager, his self-control, which he had always been proud of, was lost completely and it took extreme restraint to avoid scaring him.
He just hoped Bai Jing wouldn’t hate him because of this incident.
When he left, Bai Jing raised his hand to touch his lips.
He didn’t like the feeling of being overpowered. Next time, he would seize the initiative and turn defeat into victory.
Then thinking of Gu Yuanzhao’s perfect body and formidable strength, Bai Jing felt he needed to strengthen his training.
In the evening, the spaceship descended slowly near the Desolate Rock Planet.
Surrounded by winds and sands all year round, the planet was strewn with rocks and the grounds were uneven and coupled with the large temperature difference between day and night, it looked particularly desolate.
In fact, besides the local residents and those who came to mine and buy rough stones, there were hardly any people seen here.
And the hover cars that whizzed by in the air were all cargo hover cars with long carriages that were full of rough stones to be transported to bustling planets for sale via spaceships.
And there were only two passenger hover trains on the whole planet.
From this, it could be seen that the place was really underdeveloped and belonged to the lower class of planets.
The Gambling Guild didn’t have a branch on the Desolate Rock Planet, however they had a special reception office.
When Bai Jing arrived, he found that Ying Wenfeng had already checked in.
And in addition to this, the Vice Chairman of the Gambling Guild and two other Level 6 Stone Gamblers had arrived early— one of which was the Level 6 Stone Gambler Lu Yuan, the commentator of the last Stone Gambling live broadcast.
The three of them had come to act as supervisors of the Stone Gambling Points Battle to ensure fairness in the competition.
The next morning, Bai Jing received a notice from the Gambling Guild:
[Please go to Block 8 next to the Desolate Rock Planet’s Mine No.5 to pick rough stones before 10 am tomorrow. The time limit is six hours, and there will be a live broadcast to the whole network. Please be prepared in advance.]
Bai Jing glanced at the message. Mine No.5?
It seems he hadn’t heard much about this mine. What’s more some of the famous field openings weren’t in this mine.
At the same time, Ying Wenfeng and the noble family behind him also received the message.
Inside the meeting room, the old man’s face was gloomy: “That old fox, the Chairman of the Gambling Guild is really good at calculating. All the arrangements we made have been put to waste.”
As the fourth largest rough stone mining base in the Empire, Desolate Rock Planet currently had five mines, with a total of more than a dozen field openings.
Mines No.1 and No.2 were the earliest old mines to be mined, producing good quality rough stones. They were rated as B+ grade and were held jointly by the Imperial Family and several Noble Families of Capital Star Planet.
Mines No.3 and No.4 were secondary mines, rated as C grade and were divided among various rough stone mining merchants of other planets.
As for Mine No.5, it was a new mine discovered in recent years and judging from the quality of the rough stones mined from that place, it belonged to the lower E grade and was considered as the offcuts grade.
After two rounds of mining, the Noble Families had almost withdrawn their manpower and it was in a semi-abandoned state.
All the mines were located near the gambling streets and with no other industries in the harshly fractured environment of the Desolate Rock Planet, most of the locals made a living from mining rough stones.
The noble families only focused on large field openings and no one cared about the scattered rough stones around, so over time, large and small gambling streets had formed.
And acording to their guesses, the most likely locations this time were the several gambling streets near Mines No.3 and No.4.
So after receiving the news, they had mixed the prepared high quality rough stones into them quietly in advance, made secret marks on them and had been waiting for Ying Wenfeng to just pick them up during the betting war, so as to force Gu Yun out of the Gambling World!
Who would have thought that the Gambling Guild would choose Mine No.5!
Those were all offcuts. Using offcuts to carry out the Stone Gambling Points Battle, had that old man gone crazy!
The middle-aged man looked at the worried old man sitting at the top: “Father, what’s so difficult about this?
We just have pick out those high quality rough stones and put them into Block 8!”
Closing his eyes, the old man scolded: “Fool!
Even before we received the notice, Block 8 must have already been sealed off by the Gambling Guild. Moreover the inspectors from the Gambling Guild are all there. If we are discovered, it’s over!
What’s more those high quality rough stones can be mixed with the medium quality ones, but to mix them with the offcuts, do you think everyone is a fool?!”
His neck shrinking back, the middle-aged man didn’t dare say anything more.
The young man opened his mouth: “Father, don’t worry too much. After all, Ying Wenfeng is a Level 6 Stone Gambler. He might not necessarily lose.
Even if he loses, we still have other plans—”
The old man thought about it: “You’re right, it’s just that with Gu Yuanzhao around, I’m afraid it will be difficult to achieve the other plans.”
The young man smiled: “How will we know if we don’t try? It’s not as if he can follow Gu Yun every step of the way.”
The old man nodded: “That’s right, tell them to go ahead.”
At 8 o’clock the next morning, as soon as the live broadcast room was opened, a large number of viewers swarmed in, camping eagerly as they waited for the Stone Gambling Points Battle to begin.
Bai Jing, Gu Yuanzhao, Ying Wenfeng and others were sitting in the Gambling Guild’s exclusive hover car, flying to Block 8.
Along the way, Bai Jing observed the surrounding scenery curiously.
The rocks here were very distinctive, with some almost as big as mountains, standing tall and looking extremely spectacular.
In stark contrast to his relaxed look, the corners of Ying Wenfeng’s lips were pursed tightly, his palms full of sweat.
This Stone Gambling Points Battle was related to his future, his reputation, his everything!
Thinking of the message he had received yesterday, his expression became even more gloomy. The patriarch’s preparations had all been destroyed. He could only rely on himself!
Half an hour later, the hover car stopped in the middle of a huge rock.
Several people jumped out of the car and walked towards Block 8 that wasn’t far away.
