Chapter 10 â€“ Fish ball thick noodles
Translated by imakeussmile
Time quickly flowed and with a glance, five years had already passed.
On an afternoon where the sun shined brightly. There was a street which
seemed to be very tranquil, and the people on this street walked with all
kinds of different postures.
Right at that moment a voice rang out, causing the scene which had
appeared to be very common to turn into something completely different.
Everyoneâ€™s eyes started to shine and afterwards started to flare up.
â€œThe Ye Familyâ€™s thirteenth prince is here. He is going to be
prodigal and squander money at the Elegant Smile Pavilion. The seats are
limited, those who want to go, quickly go now!â€
â€œAh, the thirteenth prince is going to be prodigal again.â€
â€œElegant Smile Pavilion, I have never been to such a high grade place
â€œHahaha, I want to eat and drink well todayâ€¦â€¦â€
In a very short period of time, everyone on the entire street began to
throw aside anything that they had to do and ran towards the spot where
the most luxurious restaurant, Elegant Smile Pavilion, was located, and
at the same time letting out all kinds of different cheers.
At this time, all of them knew one thing, and it was that although the Ye
Familyâ€™s thirteenth prince would squander money, he would not specially
squander money for others. If you were not able to grab a seat, he would
not specially ask someone to arrange more seats.
Thus, right now, if one wants to enjoy this free lunch, they would have
to snatch a seat for oneself. This caused everyone to run with perhaps
the fastest speed they had ever reached in their entire life. Some even
wished that they could grow 2 more legs to run faster with.
About the matters regarding the Ye Familyâ€™s thirteenth prince, everyone
in the imperial capital already clearly knew about them. They knew that
the thirteenth prince was only squandering money because he wants to be a
prodigal son, and towards these actions, the Ye Family didnâ€™t restrict
him at all, allowing him to squander money in any which way he wanted.
Someone roughly estimated that the amount of money that the thirteenth
prince had already spent in the past few years, was at least around a
million gold coins. This amount was already enough to allow a family to
be prosperous for a few generations. Only the Ye Family would have the
financial ability to allow the thirteenth prince to squander this much
money in such a reckless manner.
It was just that it was very strange as to why the Ye Family would
indulge the thirteenth prince in his goal of squandering money to become
a prodigal son. Was it merely because of his specialness? Everyone was
very curious about this matter but as time passed, they started to slowly
become accustomed to the thirteenth princeâ€™s practices, and forgot to
ponder over this matter.
â€œApologies, our store currently has no more seats available.â€ As
someone rushed toward the Elegant Smile Pavilion, they were blocked
outside by the restaurantâ€™s assistant. Itâ€™s not that the Elegant
Smile Pavilion didnâ€™t want to earn more money, itâ€™s just that they
had no choice as there was simply no empty seats left in the restaurant.
â€œFuck! Why donâ€™t you guys expand your place a bit, so quick and there
is already no space!!â€ Some people who were unwilling to resign to fate
started to curse loudly.
â€œBuddy, our place is already big enough. In the imperial capital,
amongst all the restaurants in the east city district, our place is
already the biggest. Itâ€™s just that, no matter how big our restaurant
is, it still isnâ€™t big enough for all of you people. Our restaurant is
not the public square.â€ Said the assistant.
At this time, within the restaurant, at a seat near the railing of the
second floor, where one would be able to view the entire restaurant,
there was a little noble child who was about ten years old, along with a
very cute tiger race girl.
â€œTigress, what are they doing?â€ The noble little child looked at the
lively scene downstairs while holding the restaurantâ€™s menu and asked
while feeling somewhat puzzled.
â€œHumph, what they are doing is that they want to take advantage of you.
Young master, canâ€™t you just not squander money, and not be a prodigal
son?â€ the little tiger girl said somewhat helplessly. Regarding this
question, she had already asked it more times than she could remember,
and the answer she got was basically always the same.
â€œCannot. My occupation is to be prodigal. I want to squander money, I
want to be a prodigal son.â€ The noble little boy said very seriously
and solemnly. Perhaps, the most serious and solemn words he had said in
his entire life would be those words.
â€œI really donâ€™t know what to do with you.â€ the little tiger girl
shook her head, and afterwards started to think about how to help cut
down on the amount of money her own young master squanders. Although she
could not prevent him from squandering money and be a prodigal son, she
could still at the very least help him squander less money.
These past few years, it has always been this little tiger girl at the
side controlling the noble little princeâ€™s money squandering. If not,
the amount of money he squandered would have been much more, and it could
be said to be several times more than the amount he had already spent.
â€œTime to order the dishes already. Waiter, give me a bowl of fish ball
thick noodles.â€ The noble little boy straightforwardly ordered a type
of noodle which he liked a lot. This was also a dish which the little
tiger girl would often make for him to eat.
The little tiger girl seemed to really like to eat fish, and those who
didnâ€™t know, may have even thought that she was from the cat race.
The waiter remained silent for a while and then said: â€œThere are no
This was a high grade place, and food considered to be ordinary
couldnâ€™t be found here. At the same time, the waiter didnâ€™t want to
let this noble little prince eat any ordinary food, since if they did, it
would be hard for them to make a large profit.
This waiterâ€™s decision was also supported by the restaurantâ€™s boss.
The boss wanted to ruthlessly devour this fat goat which was the Ye
Familyâ€™s thirteenth prince. It was just that, no matter what, he would
never have thought that just because of his moment of greed, he would
have actually brought forth a consequence which would lead to his
Of course, within all of this, there was also a good reason, which was
that the boss had felt that such a high grade place like this should not
offer such low grade goods to the thirteenth prince.
The little prince looked at the menu and said: â€œEr, give me a bowl of
fish ball congee then.â€
The waiter remained silent for a while again and said: â€œThere is no
The little prince said: â€œEr, give me cow belly thick noodles then.â€
â€œâ€¦â€¦, donâ€™t have thick noodles.â€
â€œGive me a bowl of fish ball oil noodles then.â€
â€œâ€¦â€¦, donâ€™t have fish ball.â€
â€œWhy does this place have nothing at all? Still saying they are a high
grade restaurantâ€¦â€¦Give me cuttlefish ball thick noodles then.â€
Everyone was blushing with shame, how could this place be called a place
with nothing at all? This was your own problem. This Ye Familyâ€™s
thirteenth princeâ€™s brain indeed was a bit different.
â€œDonâ€™t have Thick noodles!!â€ The waiter already felt like crying.
â€œDonâ€™t have again? Give me a bowl of fish ball rice-flour noodles
â€œDonâ€™t have fish ball!!â€ Just kill me.
The little tiger girl was unable to bear it anymore and said: â€œYoung
master, their fish ball and thick noodles are out of stock already. This
means that, they donâ€™t have any combination that includes either fish
ball or thick noodles.â€
The thirteenth prince said: â€œOh, donâ€™t have any
combinationsâ€¦â€¦Then give me just fish ball only.â€
â€œBoom!â€, everyone fell downâ€¦â€¦
â€œDonâ€™t have fish ball!!!â€
â€œWhat about thick noodles then?â€
The waiter immediately jumped down from the second floor and landed on
the ground below, not moving at all.
â€œWhat happened to him? The staircase is at that side, there is no
staircase here.â€ the Ye Family thirteenth prince looked at the waiter
on the ground and said very slowly.
â€œYoung masterâ€¦â€¦â€ the little tiger girl shook her head and smiled
â€œTigress, there is nothing here at all. Letâ€™s change place instead,
letâ€™s not come to this type of place anymore.â€ the Ye Familyâ€™s
thirteenth prince stood up and casually threw a few gold coins for tea
money and walked downstairs.
Of course, from the little tiger girlâ€™s perspective, this amount of tea
money was just too much. She quickly took out a copper coin and replaced
it with the gold coins on the table. This was something which she often
needed to do.
Seeing that the little prince was preparing to leave, everyone who was
prepared to eat for free was dumbfounded. If this little prince were to
leave, then does it mean that we have to pay for our meals with our own
â€œThirteenth princeâ€¦â€¦â€ Someone let out a voice for a reminder,
hoping that the little prince would stay or at least leave some money.
â€œYou guys eat slowly, you donâ€™t have to send me off.â€ The little
prince said with manners.
â€œYoung master, letâ€™s go.â€ Seeing this situation, the little tiger
girl immediately pulled the little prince and left quickly, because she
knew what those people wanted. She also knew that her own young master
was obtuse and would definitely not think, and he would actually squander
money to pay for the meals of others.
