BATCFO Chapter 31.1

Originally, Yun Xingze was a little apprehensive about Luo Wenchuan’s sincerity. But he soon realized that although Luo Wenchuan was afraid of omegas, he respected capable people very much.

Rapidly recovering from the shock, Yun Xingze said to Luo Wenchuan: “Senior, your sincerity is not only sufficient for me, but also far beyond my expectations… I didn’t expect you to pay such a high salary.”

Upon hearing this, Luo Wenchuan handed the prepared paper contract to Yun Xingze. “Since you agree, then you should look over the contract first. If there is no problem, you can sign.”

After saying this, Luo Wenchuan held a little expectation in his eyes, but  he soon hid this expectation again.

After Yun Xingze accepted the contract, he quickly read it. The contents were quite detailed and comprehensive. It should have been written out a while ago.

Yun Xingze couldn’t help wondering, was Luo Wenchuan constantly thinking about recruiting himself as a mecha master these days?

But he soon felt that he was thinking too much. After all, being able to afford such a high salary, Luo Wenchuan didn’t necessarily have to choose him.

It took about twenty minutes to read through the contract.

Luo Wenchuan’s signature was already on it. The black handwriting was like a dragon and phoenix dancing, vigorous and powerful. Yun Xingze signed his name beside it.

After seeing Yun Xingze’s signature, Luo Wenchuan took the contract back. The skies outside were dark; dinnertime had probably passed.

Yun Xingze felt a little hungry. Only then did he realize that he might have been reading the contract for too long, causing Luo Wenchuan to starve next to him all the time.

“What do you want to eat?” Luo Wenchuan put away the contract, raised his eyes to Yun Xingze, and asked calmly. “I come to this restaurant often and the taste is good. You can order whatever you want.”

After Yun Xingze came to this world, because he had no money, he kept eating in the cafeteria and occasionally drank nutrients.

Although the food in the canteen is not too bad, it is still bland. This is the first time he has eaten out of school.

There was a floating fluorescent spot above the dining table. Yun Xingze stretched out his hand to open it, and virtual images of various dishes appeared in front of him. It all looked very delicate and expensive.

After the order was over, the two sat facing each other. The dining table was not very big, and the air seemed a little condensed.

Yun Xingze wanted to find a topic, so he asked: “Then you…are you my boss now?”

Luo Wenchuan looked at him and replied after a moment of silence: “Yes.”

“Boss Luo?” Yun Xingze tentatively called him. “Can I call you like this?”

Luo Wenchuan was drinking from a water glass, and there was no expression on his face when Yun Xingze called him.

After a while, Luo Wenchuan suddenly asked: “Are there any other names?”

Yun Xingze thought that probably because these two words are a bit old-fashioned and Luo Wenchuan looks so young, he doesn’t want to be called ‘boss’.

“Then what do you want me to call you?” Yun Xingze thought for a while, but couldn’t think of an answer, so he asked.

Luo Wenchuan put down the water cup, fingers tapping lightly before raising his eyes to Yun Xingze. “If you really want to call me boss, you can.”

Yun Xingze felt that Luo Wenchuan was a bit difficult to get along with. Perhaps it was because he had no strategies to chat with such cold people. He didn’t know how Luo Wenchuan wanted him to address him with. Internally he thought it’s best to call him Senior in the future.

Just then the waiter brought some desserts. The dessert he gave Yun Xingze was a pink spherical pastry with many lovely decorations, while Luo Wenchuan’s dessert was a brown square pastry without any other embellishments.

In addition, Yun Xingze’s dessert portion is relatively small, while Luo Wenchuan’s portion is slightly larger.

This is because this restaurant offers different desserts for alphas and omegas. Their desserts for omegas are high in sugar, while desserts for alphas have no sugar. They can also be easily distinguished from appearance – omega’s desserts are relatively cute, while alpha’s desserts are relatively plain.

Yun Xingze felt a little strange about the differing restaurant treatment, but he didn’t say anything. Picking up a spoon, he took a bite of the dessert. After tasting, his eyes lit up.

Luo Wenchuan looked at Yun Xingze, whose eyes showed how delicious it was.

He said to the waiter: “Replace mine with the same one as him.”

The waiter was stunned. Luo Wenchuan is a frequent visitor here, and he doesn’t like to eat desserts very much. Even the desserts exclusively for alpha, he eats very little.

But the waiter didn’t ask anything, and quickly turned around to change desserts.

Yun Xingze was attracted by Luo Wenchuan’s behavior. He seemed to guess that the reason why Luo Wenchuan did it was because he was afraid that he would feel that he would be treated differently.

“Your portion looks delicious.” At this time, Luo Wenchuan said casually.

Yun Xingze thought to himself, it turned out that he was thinking too much.

“It’s very delicious,” Yun Xingze took a few more bites. “Like strawberry yogurt. It tastes very soft.”

Luo Wenchuan’s gaze fell on Yun Xingze’s lips.

When the youth ate dessert, he seemed a little less heroic and more playful and vivid. His thin lips were stained with white cream, which was ruddy and beautiful.

One second later, Luo Wenchuan retracted his line of sight and unconsciously blurted out: “It’s soft?”

Yun Xingze hadn’t seem him looking and casually replied: “Yes, I’m not sure how it’s made…”

Luo Wenchuan, who usually doesn’t eat sweet or greasy things like dessert, ate a lot of it this time. It was unprecedented. When he finished, he even said “not bad”.

Yun Xingze didn’t think there was anything wrong, but the waiter on the side was dumbfounded.

Halfway through the dinner, Luo Wenchuan’s optical brain suddenly received a message. After he saw it, he frowned slightly and said to Yun Xingze: “I have something, and will go first.”

Yun Xingze asked curiously, “Is it urgent? Do you want me to accompany you?”

“No,” Luo Wenchuan answered concisely. “The bill is paid for, you can continue eating.”

Standing up, he picked up the coat on the side and put it on, his figure changing to tall and imposing.

Yun Xingze was stunned at the abrupt change. “Then the money for this meal will be deducted from my salary.”

Luo Wenchuan was walking to the door, his camel coat giving him a noble temperament when he looked back at Yun Xingze. His jaw line is clean and neat, and the ends of his eyes are slightly raised.

He said: “Celebration for joining, boss invites you.”

After finishing speaking, a smile seemed to flash from the corner of his lips. But Yun Xingze was not able to catch it before Luo Wenchuan turned and left.

Yun Xingze couldn’t help but feel confused. Doesn’t he not like being called boss?

Yun Xingze returned to the dormitory with the things Luo Wenchuan gave, feeling heavy.

After Lu Ranxu lay down in the medical cabin, he was almost healed. He was lying on the sofa watching the news when Yun Xingze returned. Seeing him back, he waved hurriedly: “Come here, there’s big news!”

Putting away the things Luo Wenchuan gave him, Yun Xingze walked over to Lu Ranxu, and glanced at the news on the light screen: <Suspected Mysterious Second Prince Returning to the Capital>.

“The second prince?” Yun Xingze asked. “Shouldn’t he already be in the capital?”

Lu Ranxu looked at him in surprise. “Do you not follow the news at all? Since childhood, the royal family sent the second prince to other planets. I heard that it was to gain experience, but no one knows where he went or when he will come back…”

In the plot related to Yun Xingze, there is not much information about this. It is probably related to his original status as a cannon fodder, and he doesn’t care about anything other than love.

“But it’s all about chasing the wind and catching the shadow.” Lu Ranxu said again. “No one knows what the second prince is called, or why the royal family keeps his information so secretive. Do you think the royal family wants to cultivate a good heir who is unknown?”

Yun Xingze contemplated it for a moment. “If they really want him to be the heir, they should let the people know him, otherwise there will be a lot of gossip in the future.”

Lu Ranxu: “What you said is true. I also heard that the second prince was sent out of the Imperial Capital purely because the king didn’t like him. I don’t know which statement is true.”

“Well, we won’t be able to come to a conclusion just discussing.” Yun Xingze said, suddenly changing the topic. “However, I also have news to share.”

Lu Ranxu asked curiously: “What?”

“I have become Luo Wenchuan’s mecha master.” Yun Xingze calmly said words that shocked Lu Ranxu stupid.

“Really? You became a mecha master for Luo Wenchuan?!”

Lu Ranxu jumped up from the sofa in shock.

Yun Xingze nodded. “He gave very much.”

    Probably not…
    Thank You For The Chapter

    I’m actually guessing yes if the question refers only to the salary. It wouldn’t have been as friendly of a yes, but I feel like YXZ was leaning that way since the official first meeting. Out of obligation for most of it, but also a sense that LWC is a decent guy. It’s much easier to work for someone you know isn’t going to creep on you or ask unreasonable demands of. Money definitely is a great easy deciding factor though! I think without it there would have been a lot of research on options first.

    Thanks for your hard work translating!

      As much as they deny it, both YXZ and LRX care about money. 👀
      Though, he would help LWC without it (because of the first bonus and his assistance)

  3. Avatar Panda Eyes says:

    I think YXZ will still accept LWC proposal. Put aside the money, with LWC achievement n connection as student (not as 2nd prince), YXZ can gain more access n connection too

    For example, the store where YXZ bought LWC’s mecha 2nd hand cheap, probably he can get it for free with a word from LWC
    🤭🤭🤭

    1. komorebi komorebi says:

      YXZ doesn’t know he’s the prince though! 👀

      1. Avatar Panda Eyes says:

        Yep. That’s why i said LWC as student. Not as prince

        Coz no matter what, LWC’s achievement is still higher than CY’s
