BATCFO Chapter 19

Zhuo Feiyue was also taken aback when he heard the words. Looking at Yun Xingze, he asked curiously: “What’s your idea? Let me hear it…”

Yun Xingze thought about it for a moment and asked Zhuo Feiyue: “Teacher Zhuo, I have question. I registered a lightsaber mecha. To what extent can a mecha be modified for the contest?”

“As long as the modification is based on the original mecha. Weapons of mass destruction can’t be added, but you can do anything else.” Zhuo Feiyue thought for a while and replied.

The school’s regulations seem loose, but the interval between each game is very short, and it is difficult for players to make huge changes to their original mecha.

“Then what if I modify it like this…”

Yun Xingze leaned into Zhuo Feiyue’s ear and whispered his idea.

At first, Zhuo Feiyue laughed as listened to him. But after hearing him out, his eyes widened in surprise. “Yun Xingze, are you crazy? How can you do it like this. It’s too dangerous!”

The alpha girl also looked at Yun Xingze in surprise: “Are you sure you can pull off such a modification successfully? This change is too big, and shouldn’t be done on a whim. Plus, after such modifications, it will require a lot of mental control, which is difficult for ordinary people.”

Zhuo Feiyue frowned and added: “Indeed. Not only is having strong mental control needed, but it also requires extensive mecha modification experience. You just started driving a lightsaber mecha, and don’t have the ability to modify it like that. Don’t be self-willed.”

After hearing what they said, Yun Xingze couldn’t help but curled his lips. “How can I know if I don’t try?”

He lacks everything except modification ability and mental control.

“Let me say this first,” Zhuo Feiyue looked at him seriously. “If there is any problem with the mecha after the modification, you are not allowed to continue with the next game. Safety first.”

Yun Xingze said earnestly: “It won’t fail.”

Zhuo Feiyue looked at him with suspicious eyes – where did this kid get the confidence?

After the three of them spoke, Yun Xingze’s mind was decided. But the expressions of the other two were not very optimistic.

Zhuo Feiyue noticed Luo Wenchuan who was holding the cat not far away, smiled at him, then walked over and asked: “Yo, Xiao Luo, why haven’t you left yet? You like this cat so much?”

Luo Wenchuan’s head lowered, and the movement in his hand paused for a second. But Yun Xingze did not see his expression

He was wearing a school uniform and holding the cat. The orange hair and dark blue fabric played off each other, looking warm and cute-if they ignored his iceberg face.

Yun Xingze was immersed in his own thinking just now. At this moment, he looked at the tall boy under the cherry blossom tree and the cat in his arms. He actually felt that Luo Wenchuan like this didn’t look so scary – at least it did not seem like he had the rumored fear of omegas.

Luo Wenchuan glanced at the cat’s paw. Seeing it stopped bleeding, he bent over and placed it on the ground, gently rubbing its head with his slender, white fingers.

The cat turned around and rubbed his hand, then quickly disappeared into the bushes.

“I’m going.” Luo Wenchuan said to Zhuo Feiyue lightly. Then he turned and left.

“I have to thank him…” Yun Xingze whispered, “If I didn’t bump into him saving the cat just now, I wouldn’t have thought I could modify it like this.”

Zhuo Feiyue looked at him in shock: “Just because you saw Luo Wenchuan and that cat, you decided to modify the mecha like that?!”

Yun Xingze nodded slowly.

Zhuo Feiyue helped his forehead: “Who gave you the courage…”

In the afternoon, the simulation training room.

During the school’s mecha competition, many students will come here for training.

There are many simulation cabins in the training room, corresponding to different virtual light screens that students can use to watch the various battles.

Many people stood in front of one of the light screens.

On the light screen, there is a battle between a comet mecha and a lightsaber mecha. The simulated battlefield is the school’s single-player PK arena.

The two mechas fought hard in the circular field. The lightsaber and the chain sword continued to collide. Then the comet mecha changed its weapons and attacking style, and quickly found the flaws.

It didn’t take long for the comet mecha to dismantle the arms of the lightsaber mecha.

Everything seemed to have just begun. After losing an arm, more parts and accessories were torn off forcefully, frightening the students around him.

“What a lunatic…”

“Really frustrating as always.”

“Who knows why it has to be done this way.”

After the game was over, the two simulation cabins next to it opened. A tall, handsome alpha with red hair came out of one of them. There was some sweat on his body, and his eyes were a little bit hostile, which scared the students around him to scatter like birds and beasts. From the simulation cabin next to him, a beta boy emerged.

“Kaleb, do you need to practice so hard?” The beta asked not understanding. “The next lightsaber mecha you’ll fight next is a B-class and driven by a first-year omega. You can completely solve the game in five minutes.”

Kaleb’s short red hair and calm expression was a bit aggressive as he replied: “I want to join the school team.”

“You will definitely be able to make it this year,” the boy comforted. “Don’t try so hard, save some energy for later, otherwise it will be very troublesome when meeting S-rank opponents.”

Kaleb did not answer.

The boy repeated: “Your opponent is just an omega. There is no need to expose so many moves, and there is no need to embarrass him. It would be too much to dismantle people like just now to only the cockpit.”

“This time. I will tear down to the cockpit too.” Kaleb said word for word, “Otherwise, it seems that I don’t respect this omega.”

The boy was stunned, watching Kaleb turn and leave, frowning: “Fuck, really he really is a f*cking lunatic…”

Kaleb ran into two people when he left the simulation training room.

After his gaze stayed on the two of them for a while, he frowned. Eyes flashing with unpleasantness, he hit one of them on the shoulder as he brushed past and left the training room.

Ke Lei was taken aback. Rubbing his shoulders, he looked at Kaleb’s back, and whispered: “Damn, why does this red-haired boy still have such a weird temper.”

Luo Wenchuan made the uncommon action of glancing back at Kaleb.

“However, Kaleb’s performance this year is indeed much better than last year.” Ke Lei frowned. “Su Zinan became a substitute for the school team last year. So it may be because he was irritated from bad luck at failing to enter the school team for two consecutive years. ”

Luo Wenchuan’s tone was calm: “He is indeed at the level of the school team.”

“Last year Su Zinan was lucky and met Chi Yu, and Chi Yu directly released water1Released water, as in Chi Yu deliberately went easy, or did not fight as hard as he could, on Su Zinan. for him.” Ke Lei said. “Kaleb and Su Zinan both had 8 wins and 2 losses. And because Chi Yu released water, Su Zinan’s performance was higher than him, otherwise he would have been a substitute.”

Luo Wenchuan did not speak, as if thinking about something.

Ke Lei glanced at the grouping list and said in surprise: “Ah, Kaleb’s opponent is Yun Xingze, the omega that helped you refit the mecha.”

“I know.” Luo Wenchuan casually replied.

Ke Lei looked at him in confusion: “You know? Since when did you care about this?”

Luo Wenchuan paused, without answering this question, and asked, “If it were you, what would you do?

“Huh?” Ke Lei was startled first, then he thought about it carefully, frowning. “The only way is to modify the mecha into a long-ranged mecha. But this method is not necessarily safe, and there’s not enough time…”

Finished, Ke Lei looked at Luo Wenchuan: “Why are you suddenly curious about this?”

“Just asking.” Luo Wenchuan’s tone was flat.

“Kaleb, because of Su Zinan’s affairs, probably doesn’t have a good opinion of the participating omegas,” Ke Lei curled his lips, his tone a little worried. “Yun Xingze is probably in danger.”

Luo Wenchuan recalled the cat in the morning. Suddenly looking at Ke Lei, he inadvertently said: “Are you worried about him?”

“Of course. Kaleb is so cruel, Yun Xingze is omega,” Ke Lei said seriously. “Don’t you worry about him? At the very least, he helped you modify your mecha.”

“I’m more worried about Kaleb.” Luo Wenchuan opened a simulation cabin and entered without expression.

“Huh?” Ke Lei’s face was full of question marks. His eyes were full of shock. Was Dachuan serious when saying this?

Yun Xingze searched for relevant materials and found that the materials needed for this modification were not particularly many. He couldn’t help but breathe a sigh of relief, otherwise he might have to ask Teacher Zhuo to borrow money.

Just as he was busy modifying in full swing, he suddenly received a message from an unfamiliar number: [Lack of money? Need help? I think your mecha is quite broken…]

Yun Xingze replied: [Don’t need insurance. Will call the police if you bother again.]

The other party quickly replied with a “?” and replied: [Yun Xingze, did you delete my communication number?]

Yun Xingze was stunned for a moment, and immediately realized that this should be the one surnamed Chi.

Seeing Yun Xingze’s delay in replying, Chi Yu thought that his tone was not very good, so he said “tsk”. After considering it for a long time, he typed a lot of words in the chat box to the effect that as long as Yun Xingze didn’t have a temper, he can reconcile with the Yun family and provide help to Yun Xingze.

After all, that mecha was so ugly. The Yun family must have cut off the living expenses for Yun Xingze, otherwise he couldn’t drive such an ugly mecha.

Chi Yu thought that Yun Xingze would definitely be very moved and forgive him.

However, when Chi Yu edited the good news and sent it out confidently, he found that his message had been rejected.

His eyes widened. Stunned for a full ten seconds, he shouted in disbelief: “He…he blocked me? He actually dared block me!”

Su Zinan was not in a good mood. Seeing the situation, he reluctantly put on a smile: “Xingze xuedi’s temper is still irritable as always. Brother Yu, I blame you for not caring about him normally.”

Chi Yu darkened his face and gritted his teeth. “Why did I not care about him? It’s because he doesn’t listen to me. When his mecha is torn down by Kaleb next time, he will know how to beg me!”

“Don’t say that,” Su Zinan said softly. “You should coax him then, otherwise he will be angry again.”

“How can I coax him!” Chi Yu clenched his fists, his eyes full of fire. “He was the one who blocked me first. Can he still be so shameful and have a temper?!”

“Don’t be angry, Xingze xuedi didn’t mean it. He will understand that you are doing this for his own good…”

At this moment, Su Zinan’s eyes finally showed a smile.

Two days later.

The winners of the second round are divided into two batches, with competitions happening in the C field and the D field.

The match between Su Zinan and Chi Yu was over on the first day. Both of them won the match smoothly. After all, they were both members of the school team last year, and their skill level is still very high in the school.

In the morning of the next day, Chi Yu got up early in the morning, put on his best-looking clothes, took care of his hairstyle, and went to the C stadium where Yun Xingze was.

He wants to maintain his best condition and watch Yun Xingze get embarassed with his own eyes.

Obviously Su Zinan thought the same way. The two appeared in a group of Xinghai Academy school uniforms, seeming a little out of place.

At this moment, a voice on the side caught Chi Yu’s attention: “Eh, Luo Wenchuan is here too? I remember he was in the D stadium…”

“Didn’t he never watch other people’s games?”

“Very strange. Are masters fighting today?”

“In front of Luo Wenchuan, who can be called a master…”

Chi Yu was also puzzled. He found at the protagonist being discussed sitting in the audience. Luo Wenchuan’s eyes were closed as he rested, seemingly not caring about the game on the court.

On the contrary, Ke Lei next to him looked curious and seemed to be waiting for someone to fight.

Not far from Chi Yu, Lu Ranxu frowned when he saw the two guys dressed up like peacocks, and said to Oriel, “Tsk, it’s really bad.”

Oriel was a little nervous as looked at the arena: “It seems that Yun Xingze is next. His modification… Do you think its feasible?”

“It was indeed a risky modification. I persuaded him day and night, but he didn’t listen to me.” Lu Ranxu clenched his fingers unconsciously. “But I think Xingze should have his own considerations… Let’s trust him.”

Oriel nodded, “That’s okay. Anyway, it’s not like losing this match means losing the chance to enter the school team.”

Lu Ranxu took a deep breath and tried to calm himself.

Yun Xingze was preparing in the waiting area. At this time, the staff came over and motioned him to the backstage to prepare.

He stood up. Kaleb on the other end of the bench also stood up, his short red hair shining brightly.

The two looked at each other, and the atmosphere was a little subtle.

In the stands, the audience noticed Kaleb’s movements. They were immediately excited.

“That red-haired lunatic is going to play!”

“Damn, I waited specifically for his game. Don’t know how he’ll dismantle the opponent this time.”

“I heard that the opponent is an omega.”

“Then wouldn’t he be dismantled till there is nothing left?”

Luo Wenchuan opened his eyes in the noisy din. His sloppy expression suddenly became a little serious as he looked at the arena.

Chi Yu was originally watching a good show. But when he saw Yun Xingze and Kaleb disappear through the backstage door together, he inexplicably became nervous and his palms began to sweat.

After a few minutes.

In the eyes of everyone, Yun Xingze and Kaleb appeared in the center of the stadium at the same time.

 


As much as some might have wished it, Luo Wechuan + the orange kitty isn’t a thing in this fic. But there will be ‘something’ (soon)!

    I wholly look forward to this guy being ripped apart.

    1. komorebi komorebi says:

      Hm, is the rip a pun because that’s what Kaleb’s done to his past opponents?

  2. Avatar Panda Eyes says:

    ‘something’ (soon)!

    Can i make a guess before the next chap?

    YXZ’s modif become more colorful?
    Or that a cat paws appeared as part of the modif?
    Or YXZ did a salto move like LWC?
    Or maybe YXZ finally have a motto of “I Believe I Can Fly”

    (somehow my imagination is just getting ridiculous so i’ll stop)🙈🙈

    1. komorebi komorebi says:

      What’s a salto move?
      As fun as those guesses are to imagine, it’s none of the above. 🙁
      (Also, YXZ could already fly in the mecha)

  3. Avatar Sadie Woods says:

    I still have no idea what the modification is, lack of imagination around fight scenes I think. 😅

    That said, even though I obviously am not rooting for Kaleb, I agree that in an honest fight its disrespectful to “take it easy” on your opponent. What’s to brag about when you win a fight by either cheating or being given the win? I absolutely think Kaleb’s methods are quite brutal, but him giving in just because his opponent is an omega isn’t right either. 🤔

    I’m eager to see YXZ win! Whatever method he came up with will be a beauty to see in action. Metaphorically that is- that mecha would be a stretch to equate with beauty. 😂

    Thanks for your hard work translating!

    1. komorebi komorebi says:

      Well, his modification definitely does not stray on the side of beauty (with his budget). But I think you’ll like it when you find out. 😄

  4. Avatar Nieco says:

    And now im curious to what xingze mecha modification turn in to

    1. komorebi komorebi says:

      😀 The wait is over. Go mecha cube, I summon you ugly cat!
