The Silly Alchemist - chapter-224-rumours-2
â€œWhat? Did he escape AGAIN? Whatever. Look for him!â€ said Princess
Longji to her subordinates, furrowing her brows. These subordinates were
her private mercenary group.
Looks like Princess Longji and the rest finally noticed the childâ€™s
absence. And from her tone, it wasnâ€™t the first time heâ€™d slipped
However, how could a child leave without a trace under such intense
supervision? Was the child who we think it is?
Ye Langâ€™s no child though, he just shrank. How could he be called a
When this child was eating a bowl of fish ball thick noodles, the noodles
stall was suddenly surrounded by Princess Longjiâ€™s mercenary group.
They didnâ€™t do anything to him though, it was only protectionâ€“or
They were waitingâ€“ for Princess Longji!!
The child looked around him, but he didnâ€™t care. He continued slurping
his noodles. At his table, there was another tiny human eating with him.
That tiny human looked like Coldblood Fiveâ€¦
Why was Coldblood Five with the child? Where was Ye Lang?
â€œYou little troublemaker, Iâ€™m warning you! If you slip away again,
Iâ€™ll spank you!!â€
Very soon, Princess Longji arrived. She roared at the child, then sat
next to him and saidâ€”
â€œBoss, give me a bowl of noodles too!!â€
At this point, the owner of the noodles stall was in a state of shock. He
stood, not moving.
When the riders of the mercenary group surrounded the stall, he was
already panicking. He thought heâ€™d accidentally offended someone, or
done something he wasnâ€™t supposed to do. Soon after, he realised the
riders were only there to surround the stall. They werenâ€™t doing
He was very confused, he didnâ€™t understand what the riders were here
for. If they were here to cause trouble, then they wouldâ€™ve done
All his customers had left save for one child. The owner thought it might
be because the child was too young to understand, that was why he
didnâ€™t leave. As for himself, he couldnâ€™t do much either. What would
happen to his stall if he left?!
Heâ€™d attempted to ask the riders. He asked them what they were doing
but all he got was silence. Everyone ignored him!
Upon seeing this, he naturally stood aside quietly without further
questioning their duty. He didnâ€™t want to attract trouble to himself.
When the owner saw Princess Longji, he thought it was HIS moment. O
Princess Longji, she had many admirers- and the owner was one of them.
Although there was obviously a huge gap between them, some people tend to
ignore this point. So many people would imagine themselves as the lucky
Of course, this daydream only lasted a moment for Princess Longjiâ€™s
reaction showed that the â€کchildâ€™ heâ€™d forgotten about was the real
star of the show!!
And with the gossips going around, the owner started to suspect. Were the
rumours true? Did Princess Longji really have a bastard son?
This was a knife to his heart!!
And when Princess Longji sat down to order, his mind couldnâ€™t stop
spinning. As a commoner, he knew that she wouldnâ€™t usually eat food
outside, especially commonerâ€™s noodles like the food he cooked.
At this moment, Princess Longji gave him an aura of pleasant friendliness
that he would never forget for the rest of his life. Even after his
incident, he would continue spreading warmth like her and protecting her
This caused Princess Longjiâ€™s popularity to increase. Everyone liked
this friendly, grounded princess even more now!
Although that didnâ€™t seem like the truth, but this was a legend that
would continue to spread. Sometimes, rumours can also beautify a personâ€¦
â€œOhâ€¦ Oh, alright!! Alright!!â€ Once the owner came to, he did his
very best to cook a bowl of his famous noodles- he must make the best
bowl of noodles heâ€™s ever made today!
Of course, at the same time, he was straining his ears to listen to the
conversation between her and the child!!
â€œLittle troublemaker, give me a fishball! Donâ€™t just eat alone!!â€
she said casually, looking at Ye Lang.
â€œOh!â€ The child grunted, then shoved a fishball into her mouth.
Shoved was the word for it.
â€œUmmphâ€¦â€ Princess Longji bit down, then hit the kid with a huff to
show her irritation.
The child ignored her show of irritation as he continued to eatâ€¦
â€œâ€¦Little troublemaker, youâ€™re not actually afraid of me stealing
your food, are you? Is that why youâ€™re eating so quickly?â€ she
suddenly noticed that it was odd how the kid was devouring his food
The child didnâ€™t answer. He ate, and ate until he finished!!
â€œSighâ€¦ This feels so good! Yep, I was definitely afraid of you
stealing my food. Youâ€™ll have your bowl later, why would you want
mine?!â€ said the child, sighing deeply and patting his belly.
â€œOnly you would think I would take your food. When have I ever taken
anything from you?â€ asked Princess Longji, annoyed.
â€œWhen I was six, you took my lollipop. You said â€کone biteâ€™ but it
â€œWhen I was eight, you took my chicken drumstickâ€¦ And cornâ€¦â€
â€œWhen I was elevenâ€¦â€
â€œAlright, alright! What kind of memory do you have? Youâ€™re always so
clueless but you remember things like these so clearly!!â€ her face
reddened, as she hit him again.
â€œAhâ€¦â€ The stall owner jumped again. He wasnâ€™t like the riders-
they knew how the dynamics worked, theyâ€™d already gotten used to it.
It wasnâ€™t the same for the stall owner. He didnâ€™t know Princess
Longji had a mischievous side too- that she would take a childâ€™s food.
Looks like this child wasnâ€™t Princess Longjiâ€™s bastard son. If he
were her child, she wouldnâ€™t have taken stuff from him- not many
mothers would do something like that.
Then again, the way both of them spoke didnâ€™t feel like mother and son-
more like siblings!
â€œOf course. I remember bad things done to me, so you should never, ever
cross me!!â€ As the child was speaking, he was preparing to leave. At
the same time, he grabbed a tiny human next to him like grabbing a doll.
The tiny human seemed a little angry at this from the clenched jaw and a
face of exasperationâ€¦
The tiny human looked adorable though. If someone had seen them, they
would definitely want to hug them both.
At the same time, from the tiny humanâ€™s expression, looks like this
happened quite often!!
