Chapter 19 â€“ Cold Medicine (2)
Translated by imakeussmile
â€œThere is no problem right now but after eating a lot of those
medicines, there will be a problem. Do you really want to use yourself to
proof it?â€ Tigress felt extremely powerless.
â€œWill there really be a problem?â€ Towards Tigress, the thirteenth
prince still has a kind of trust for her, since she had said it, then it
could really be true.
Nonsense, of course it would be true, only you yourself would be unclear
of the situation, fancy that you are even someone who plays with alchemy.
â€œYep, there will really be a problem. I will throw away all those
expired medicines later. Next time if there are still medicines which are
about to expire, you also cannot eat those. You can only eat medicines
when you are sick, and furthermore you cannot eat too much. Also, when
you clearly have cold, you canâ€™t go and eat stomach medicine
instead.â€ Tigress softly warned repeatedly.
â€œI know already, Iâ€™m not that stupid.â€ The thirteenth prince said
with disdain, as if he would definitely not do that kind of silly thing.
Just that, whether if he would or not, was very hard to say.
And at this time, he let out another sigh and said regretfully: â€œJust
that, this is too wasteful already.â€
â€œâ€¦â€¦â€ Tigress was speechless. It was nothing unusual if it was
someone else who said that it was wasteful, but the little thirteenth
prince was a famous prodigal son, how would he even know how the word
wasteful was even written.
â€œYoung master, you are a self-proclaimed number one prodigal son under
the heaven, and you are still afraid of wasting a bit of medicine?â€
â€œProdigal is prodigal, even if you are prodigal, you also cannot be
wasteful. I am only a prodigal son, not a wasteful person.â€ The
thirteenth prince began to explain about being a prodigal son and did not
put prodigal and wasteful at the same level.
â€œThisâ€¦â€¦â€ Tigress had nothing to say already, to mention it,
although the thirteenth prince was very prodigal, he was however really
someone who did not like to waste things.
In any case, this silly young master of hers was already not able to be
explained with common sense.
Tigress smiled and then continued doing the tasks for today. Her silly
young master was the same, continuing to do his own things, and the two
of them continued their brand new day just like this.
Now, the silly young master was 13 year old and Tigress was 14 year
The Imperial Academy. This was an ultra-high rank academy where even
regular nobilities may not be able to enter. Within the entire continent,
it was ranked as number two, however this ranking was highly contested.
Just, it wasnâ€™t that the Imperial Academy tried to contest for the
number one rank and not stay in number two. Towards number one rank,
almost everyone was certain, certain from their heart that no one would
be able to shake the position of the number one academy.
Since was not about contesting for number one, then it was the number two
position where the Imperial Academy was at. Thatâ€™s right, the academies
which were ranked at number three and four had always been glaring like a
tiger at the number two position and had the determination to grab onto
every chance to seize over the position as number two.
If you want to ask how this ranking came out, it was not because some
people went to collect information and got the end result based on the
grading of every aspect of the academies. The ranking was actually very
simple, whereby it would be ranked based on the summed up strength of the
academies during the Arena Duel Competition that was held every 10 years.
[Remember this for later on]
In other words, this ranking could only be maintained for 10 years. After
10 years, if you lost, you would drop in rank, and conversely, if you
won, you would go up in rank. This was the so-called â€کThirty years the
river flows east, thirty years the river flows westâ€™. Just that this
time was shorter, with just only ten years. [Thirty years the river flow
east, thirty years the river flow west; is used to describe how things of
the world always change.]
This Arena Duel Competition was also not mixed at all and was split
according to different categories; like magic competition, martial skill
competition and the competition where very less people participate,
alchemy competition. Of course, there is also a mixed competition, where
it would be according to the members, split into individual competition
and team competition.
In this continent where martial strength was above all else, every
academyâ€™s objective was to raise an individualâ€™s strength. Therefore,
the circumstances of the studentsâ€™ strength also represented an
academyâ€™s strength and weakness.
What is worth mentioning is that, the academies which are ranked number
two to four were all occupied by the three big empiresâ€™ academies, and
the academy which was ranked number one did not belong to any of the
three big empires. Instead it belonged to a very small, a very
inconspicuous small nation. Actually, it could also be said that this
nation was an academy and this academy was a nation.
Perhaps, this was also the reason why the academy was able to rank number
one, there were very little politics in the academy.
Even if it was the three big empires, the majority of the nobles within
would also set this ranked number one academy as their first choice. For
example like Ye Family, where the thirteenth princeâ€™s brother Ye Hui
was also at the number one academy, also including the thirteenth
princeâ€™s second big sister and his other cousins.
In fact, if it was not for the thirteenth prince being a bit special, Ye
Family would also send him to the number one academy. but the situation
right now was that, even if the Imperial Academyâ€™s ranking was lower,
they would still send him to the Imperial Academy to study. Because if
the academy was too far, they would not be able to put their minds at
ease. They could at least take care of him by sending him to the Imperial
There was also one more thing. The thirteenth princeâ€™s youngest older
sister, which was also Ye Lan Yu, rejected going to the number one
academy with the reason of wanting to take care of her little brother,
and thus enrolled into the Imperial Academy instead. With her capability,
even if she was at the number one academy, she would also be a well-known
figure. Thus naturally, she was also a top-notch student at the
empireâ€™s Imperial Academy.
Because she was a girl, the familyâ€کs requirements for her were also not
that high, whichever academy she would like to attend, they would just
And since the two of them attended classes at the same academy, the two
of them naturally went to the academy together. As a matter of fact, she
once again charmingly appeared in front of the thirteenth prince. The Ye
Lan Yu right now was already someone who had all the requirements needed
to be a beautiful woman, and had already become the pursuing goal of many
male nobles. [Keep dreaming]
Seems that right now, she was just nice enough to be called a 16 year old
youth, a pretty young girl who was currently in the prime of her youth.
â€œLittle brother, time to go to school already.â€ Ye Lan Yu
straightforwardly kicked open the courtyard door and pulled away the
thirteenth prince, who had already finished preparing. This sequence of
movements was very adept that it could be even said to be done in one go.
â€œOhâ€¦â€¦â€ The thirteenth prince was totally used to this kind of
situation, as while he let Ye Lan Yu hold his hand, he was using another
hand to hold onto a book to read.
Tigress, who was in the courtyard, saw this situation and similarly very
adeptly put everything into her space pouch, then immediately went to
chase after the two siblings at the front.
Every day, Tigress would follow after these peculiar siblings to go to
the Imperial Academy. Her identity was naturally the thirteenth
princeâ€™s study companion. For nobles were allowed to bring a
chamberlain kind of study companion along with them. This was a thing
which all the academies in the continent allowed. However, the nobles
would have to pay an additional school fee for the study companion.
Of course, not every noble would bring along a study companion with them,
like for example Ye Lan Yu herself.
The Ye Familyâ€™s carriage sent the three to the outside of the Imperial
Academyâ€™s big gate. The three of them came down from the carriage and
began walking into the academy. This was also one of the academyâ€™s
rules, where no vehicles were allowed to enter into the academy. If not,
the entire Imperial Academy would have big traffic jam occurring every
single day. After all, everyone here were all nobles who were out of the
And whenever it was this moment, a group of people would gather outside
of the academy to await the arrival of the three of them. Of course, the
person they were waiting for was not the thirteenth prince. Although the
thirteenth prince provokes jealousy, he has never offended anyone before,
and so there would not be a phenomenon of him being besieged by others.
The person those people were waiting for was the person at the thirteenth
princeâ€™s side, his big sister, Lady Ye Lan Yu.
â€œLady Lan Yu, these are 999 roses which I bought from God of Love
Flower Shop. This represents my love for youâ€¦â€¦â€ A bunch of roses
appeared in front of the three of them, as for the person who was holding
the roses, only his voice was heard but the person himself was not seen.
â€œIâ€™m sorry, I donâ€™t like roses.â€ Ye Lan Yuâ€™s face had an
apologetic expression as she said while smiling, her tone and expression
was just that noble and gentle.
This was indeed the bearings a young lady who belonged to a big family
should have. But, would this Ye Familyâ€™s young lady really have this
kind of side to her? Could it be that she had changed after growing up?
