The Silly Alchemist [Chapter 1-154] - Chapter 28
“Shut up! I will throw you out if you dare speak another word. Also, don’t misunderstand, I stayed because of the thirteenth prince. I don’t care who you are or what your status is, please make sure the thirteenth prince is protected from any harm. Otherwise, I will make you pay for it!,” said Tigress. She didn’t hold back and nobody could make her step back in this matter.
She was either truly fearless, or she was just being a newborn calf, unafraid of tigers. [Note: a Chinese idiom: newborn calves are not afraid of tigers = young people who dare to take risks]
Everyone understood from this incident that the thirteenth prince was Tigress’ top priority. She wouldn’t let anyone go easily if they were to harm him, the royal family or the Ye family.
This made everyone question something everyone had forgotten, her background. To this day, people knew nothing about her, not even her last name. That was probably why no one had any other information about her.
Beastman was a very unique race. Although they did not officially build an empire and existed only in tribes, their powers could match up with the other empires.
Of course, that referred to their combined power. Usually, they would divide and conquer. One or a few races would form a tribe. Some of the larger tribes would only consist of one race. They were basically the biggest tribe within all the beastman.
Conflicts and wars would happen between different races but if there were any enemies, all the beastman would team up to destroy them.
It was similar to the human race. They had their own ruling system but the only difference was that the human race had their own internal wars despite having a common enemy at the same time. Countries would just stand back and watch another country to be attacked, even if it was nearly destroyed.
Among the beastman, Tiger Race was a big and powerful tribe that combined with the fox race. With the help of the fox race, their power went up another level.
Perhaps Tigress was someone important in the Tiger Race. If that was the case, she was definitely in the place to speak to the seventh princess in such a manner!
There were more than one or two princesses in an empire, maybe ten, or more!
A princess in an empire wasn’t necessarily more important than an important person from the Tiger Race. They were of equal statuses.
Then again, the beastman never cared about status. To them, power was the most important thing. Someone could immediately become an important person when they had enough power.
Tigress had been with the thirteenth prince since young, which meant she wasn’t an important person in terms of power and influence.
So, it might be because of her family’s power. When a family’s powerful enough, its family members would eventually have a different character. This rule applied to the beastman too!
Perhaps Tigress had a profile no one could ever imagine!
Of course, those were just guesses. Maybe Tigress wasn’t anything but only a fearless person who had no regards for status!
Among the beastman, most of them did things without thinking about the consequences. They would do things that had to be done. They would still do it even if it would end with death.
Tiger Race was one of the representatives. If it wasn’t for Fox Race’s strategic planning, they would have fought face to face, with no way of changing the situation.
Seven days passed, and the thirteenth prince was still sleeping on his bed. There was no sign of him waking up and this made people anxious if he were to not wake up for the rest of his life. Whoever saw someone who couldn’t wake up after 7 days and 7 nights, would have felt so too.
The thirteenth prince was in Ye Residence and was shifted back to his house after that day. Throughout these 7 days, Tigress was always beside the thirteenth prince, she even slept beside the edge of his bed. Even his mom, Long Anqi, could only last for three days before leaving Tigress to take care of him again.
But, Long Anqi would come every morning and would go back to sleep in her room late at night. Every day was the same for her and Ye Lanyu.
During the day, Long Anqi and Ye Lanyu would let Tigress rest and have a bath while they take care of him temporarily.
Tigress rejected it at first but she accepted it after that because she knew it might be a long way before the thirteenth prince wakes up. She couldn’t be knocked out now, as she wouldn’t be able to take care of her master is she wasn’t in good condition.
Throughout these seven days, the seventh princess would visit the thirteenth prince every day and she would stay for half a day.
Today, Tigress, Ye Lanyu, the seventh princess and Long Anqi were all at the thirteenth prince’s side, hoping he would regain his consciousness. They were waiting for him to wake up and say something silly to them.
They had really high hopes and are surprised when the thirteenth prince’s had any reflex actions. Every single time, they would be disappointed after being surprised. It drains them mentally and physically.
These seven days allowed them to understand how one day felt like one year.
Suddenly, the thirteenth prince’s hand moved a little. Tigress, who was holding his hand trembled and looked at him immediately, but he didn't move at all. She was disappointed, thinking this was just like any other times.
The next moment, he sat up and opened his eyes, then he shouted a sentence. Although no one understood it, nobody bothered and everyone just happily ran over to hug him. The thirteenth prince looked confused.
What was the sentence? According to four ladies who witnessed it, it was a weird sentence. It was something that the thirteenth prince would never say.
“Fuck! What the hell, I just left! A meteor?! A-freakin' grand welcome indeed!”
What the hell? A meteor? He just left? What did he mean?
Had the thirteenth prince lost his mind after being struck by lightning?
Or maybe, he had experienced it. Maybe he had a dream about it. Who knew what kind of dream he had when he was unconscious?
