The Silly Alchemist - chapter-273-alvin-2
Alvinâ€™s exquisite tanned skin was naturally beautiful, it was
Perhaps many would even say he looked like a girl. That wouldâ€™ve been
true in the world of humans, but if he was truly an elf, then it would be
â€œIâ€™m not really an elf, Iâ€™m half-elf!â€ He explained.
â€œEven if you didnâ€™t tell me, I wouldâ€™ve also guessed you were an
elf. You have very weird earsâ€¦â€ Ye Lang said while he looked at
Alvinâ€™s strange ears.
This was why Ye Lang offered to help restore Alvinâ€™s ears to normal. He
wouldnâ€™t have offered if they were just elven ears though.
The problem wasâ€¦
When Alvin said his ears were normal, Ye Lang immediately interrupted to
say, â€œThis is what you call normal? You have a human ear and a pointy
elf ear on the other side, that doesnâ€™t look normal no matter how I
look at it!â€
â€œâ€¦â€ Alvin suddenly became quiet.
â€œIt doesnâ€™t matter if youâ€™re only half-elfâ€¦ Offsprings usually
inherit a complete set of their parentâ€™s traitsâ€¦ Both their ears
would be the same! Not like yoursâ€¦ Alvin, I think you might be a
special kind of half-elf!!â€ Ye Lang continued.
â€œAnyway, I still think itâ€™d be better to make your ears the same,
Itâ€™d make you look so much better!â€ offered Ye Lang again.
â€œNever!â€ refused Alvin, shaking his head.
â€œAlright, alright. Itâ€™s unique anyway, something special only you
have!â€ waved Ye Lang. Not once did he mention the ears again that day.
The name â€کAlvinâ€™ was also a topic of controversy between them. Back
when Alvin said his name, Ye Lang wasnâ€™t paying attention and it
sounded vaguely like Alvin to him.
And since Alvin didnâ€™t disagree, the name stuck.
Seven days later, Ye Lang and his team were finally approaching the Holy
Mountain. They had passed numerous villages, passed many people who
thought theyâ€™d never make it this far.
There were many too who thought it might take a few more days to arrive.
To their surprise, they were already there!
Very soon, Ye Lang and two thousand of his men met with the other
refugees. They found the other refugees easily, too easy.
There were over a hundred thousand refugees, how hard could it be?
Ye Lang was astonished at the size of the crowd. Looking at all of them,
he and all his men felt tiny compared to all of the refugees.
â€œI knew there would be a lot of refugees, but I did not expect so many
of them here!!â€œ blurted Ye Langâ€¦
It was easy to imagine what a hundred thousand refugees would look like.
However, when they were there, right in front of his eyes, everything
felt very different.
â€œI agree with you sir, then what do we do now?â€ Alvin and the rest
felt powerless. All confidence in being able to help them vanished,
including those who wanted to help and even the ones who wanted to play
Looking at the crowd, they felt hopeless.
â€œWe will do everything we can! It is not about the quantity, but about
the quality! Weâ€™ll do what we are able to, and that will be enough!â€
Ye Lang confidently said.
Everyone got to work to help anyone who needed them!
Ye Lang and his two thousand men drew the attention of people living
around Holy Mountain. All the refugees, the believers of the Holy
Mountain, and even the spiritual workers living in the area came to meet
They all thought it was weird at first, for Ye Lang and his followers did
not look like refugees at all, rather people who wanted to help refugees.
But who in the world would be able to recruit two thousand people to help
The strangest part was, who would think that the people in Holy Mountain
needed help? What was there that they could not achieve?
Their questions left as quickly as they came when Ye Lang did something
very surprisingâ€¦ He had Little Xin empty out their rings and arrange
After that, what was once a plain field became a land of gold and riches.
Everything you could ever think of was there!
The number of goods on the ground was unbelievable to their eyesâ€¦
At this moment, no one wondered how Little Xin was able to arrange
everything at such speed and within such a short period of time. They
only cared about one thingâ€¦
What the hell, did they move an entire city here?
Are they going to build a new city here?
They must be so richâ€¦
If it wasnâ€™t for the fortune he received from the emperor of the
Vermillion Bird Empire, Long Anyang, Ye Lang wouldâ€™ve never been able
to afford all this. He didnâ€™t want the gold at first- it was the money
for the magic cube- but he was tricked by Princess Longji into accepting
Only a person like Ye Lang would have to be tricked into accepting money!
When the Vermillion Bird Emperor gave Ye Lang the gold coins, he did not
give it in the exact amount, throwing in a little extra.
Ye Lang didnâ€™t mind too much at that time. He even insisted on
accepting only the gold coins, saying it felt better when he spent in
gold coins. It definitely shocked people.
Who wouldâ€™ve thought heâ€™d spend every single gold coin from this
fortune? And not only that, he completely emptied his own personal
fortune too! Even at the end, he still wasnâ€™t sure how much gold the
emperor had given him.
Oh, how the emperor cried when he heard this storyâ€¦
â€œThatâ€™s odd, why do I feel like theyâ€™re trapped?â€ Ye Lang
suddenly noticed a huge boundary separating a portion of the people from
the rest of the crowd.
With a rough estimate, there were about fifty to sixty thousand people in
If you looked closely, not only would you see segregations within the
alchemy formation- there was also something separating this entire crowd
of hundred thousand and Sheng City.
All these refugees were locked outside the city, no one could get in!
