The Silly Alchemist - chapter-197
The Palace (3)
It would be best if she could tag along, but the emperor only wanted to
meet Ye Lang. Coldblood Seven didnâ€™t understand. Why him??
Coldblood Seven would only find out when Ye Lang returned. Before they
did, she could only speculate!
When the arrived at the palace, Coldblood Seven reminded them of their
mission again, then they went separate ways. Coldblood Seven went to meet
the prince and princess, while Ye Lang borrowed the spirit girlâ€™s
identity to make his first step into Vermilion Bird Empireâ€™s heart- the
The Vermilion Bird Palace naturally had many Vermilion Bird symbols, i.e.
on the gates and on the rooftops, even the window panes. It was
However, every picture of the bird was unique, so it didnâ€™t feel
repetitive at all!
Compared to the Soaring Sky Empireâ€™s palace, this was a little small-
but it gave a very mystical vibe. This was because this palace was
designed by a legendary architect from a line of masters in the empire.
His building designs were much sought-after, but he only operated within
Vermilion Bird Empire, never designing for people from other kingdoms.
Both the Soaring Sky and Ai La Empire had once invited him, but his
answer was the same– No!
This architect sacrificed blood, sweat and tears to build this palace. It
was his finest creation, so naturally, it felt very different. It felt
It was no wonder every emperor of the Vermilion Bird Empire ruled so
well. In this environment, even the most ordinary person would thrive.
Hence, the impact of a personâ€™s living quarters should never be
This is related to something the Chinese often emphasized, which is the
art of Feng Shui. Ye Lang seemed to know a little about it, and he even
dabbled a little with the ancient divination- Qi Men Dun Jia.
â€œLady Marge, straight ahead, please. The emperor isnâ€™t ready yet,
please wait at the Meng Chang Tower for a moment!â€ the palace official
brought the spirit girl towards the tower, which was where the emperor
usually met his guests. Lady Marge was now a very, very important person!
You would know, from how well they treated her!
â€œPlease, help yourself!â€ at the Meng Chang Tower, many trays of cakes
and fruits were placed before her. There was even Xiangming tea served,
and it was not something a commoner could enjoy.
â€œThank you, I will,â€ said Lady Marge slowly, although she didnâ€™t
touch the food.
How could she eat? She was a reanimated spirit!
After this, the ladies-in-waiting and the palace official noticed Lady
Marge didnâ€™t seem to move a muscle. She sat straight as a stick and
maintained her impeccable posture.
They thought Lady Marge must have been raised well. Even their own
princesses would have to break character, unlike this Lady Marge who
could maintain her grace and elegance throughout.
What they didnâ€™t know was that Lady Marge was a spirit. If Ye Lang
didnâ€™t let her, she wouldnâ€™t need to move forever. Maintaining this
posture was very easy.
Right now, Ye Lang and Coldblood Five were in a heated discussion.
â€œLittle Five, thereâ€™s no one here. We should go out for a bit,â€ Ye
Lang pulled himself up with the edge of the bag, his head pushing the
bagâ€™s flap up to peep through.
Although the ladies-in-waiting were all close, ready to serve, it
wasnâ€™t like they were staring directly at them. It would be very easy
to leave if they wanted to.
â€œDonâ€™t bother, itâ€™s the palace. There would be as many masters here
as the Coldblood Group, they would see us! There might even be one among
us now!â€ said Coldblood Five lazily, lying on her back.
She wasnâ€™t here to have fun with Ye Lang, it was time for work!
â€œWho? Why donâ€™t we test them,â€ Ye Lang took out a slingshot,
â€œLitlle Five, help me!â€
The slingshot was meant for a normal human, so it was difficult for Ye
Lang to use. Although it was Ye Langâ€™s toy from a long time ago, it was
still a powerful one.
It was made using alchemy, and he even had ammunition to go with it.
These explosives would rival a regular grenade, so it could be counted as
â€œ… Stop it. If anything explodes, they would definitely conduct a
search. You need to look for something quieter, and smaller object if you
really want to do this,â€ Coldblood Five had obviously seen what this
slingshot could do.
When she did, a while back, Coldblood Fiveâ€™s jaw was on the floor. She
stared at Ye Lang, then made a request– she wanted this slingshot!
However, Ye Lang said it had been with him for a while now and it was of
sentimental value to himself. He couldnâ€™t give it to her, but he was
willing to make her something similar.
Where was that something now?
Coldblood Five never received it. Ye Lang would always say it was a
work-in-progress, and he would tell her when it was done.
He said, â€œIâ€™ll make one for you, donâ€™t worry! I just donâ€™t have
Time. Youâ€™ll probably give it to me twenty years later. She was
exasperated, but she had no choice.
â€œOh, then not this, Iâ€™ll useâ€¦ This!â€ Ye Lang took a tiny crossbow
â€œWhatâ€™s the difference? Just sit and donâ€™t move. I think the
emperor would be here soon. You should get ready, donâ€™t embarrass
yourself later,â€ Coldblood Five knocked his head.
â€œIâ€™ve seen emperors too often, itâ€™s not a problem,â€ said Ye Lang
casually, then immediately crawling out. Coldblood Five wasnâ€™t quick
enough to catch him.
â€œYou idiot, where are you going?â€ Coldblood Five had no choice but to
â€œIâ€™m getting some food, it looks so good,â€ said Ye Lang as he
climbed across the spirit girlâ€™s body, then onto the table.
Exotic food prepared by the royal chefs, surely it would be awesome. Ye
Lang was bored and the food was a distraction. Heâ€™d forgotten about
â€œYouâ€™re an idiot! People will see you,â€ Coldblood grabbed Ye Lang,
stopping him from leaving the spiritâ€™s body. At least he would be
covered a little bit.
â€œNo they won’t, Iâ€™ll be careful!â€ Ye Lang freed himself, then ran
in broad daylight towards the food.
â€œ… Thatâ€™s you being careful?? Are you TRYING to get caught?â€
