Supreme Crazy Wife - Chapter 49
“Big Brother, what are you thinking about?” Leng Ruoxue felt that her brother had something to say to her these past few days.
“Xue’er, the Academy Competition is in two months,” Leng Ruohan said after some thought.
“So what?” Leng Ruoxue didn’t care. What does the competition have to do with me? I didn’t go to the academy to be gilded, so the honor of the academy has nothing to do with me.
“I want you to take part in my place,” Leng Ruohan said. His master had mentioned it to him yesterday.
“Big Brother, is it not enough that they’ve hurt you? Do you still have to worry about their honor now?” Leng Ruoxue said a little angrily.
“Xue’er, Big Brother doesn’t want Master to be in a difficult situation. Don’t blame him. Moreover, all the effort I’ve put in for the past three years is for this Academy Competition,” Leng Ruohan explained. It was a tough call, but he was very clear about his master’s difficulties, so he chose to remain silent.
“Besides, I’ve already made an appointment with Huo Qing to compete in this Academy Competition three years ago. But now…”
The Academy Competition was a comprehensive evaluation among all the academies on the Ling Feng Continent. All the academies on the Ling Feng Continent, regardless of their size, could participate once every three years. The top three places in the previous years were basically monopolized by the three major academies—Rising Dragon Academy, Heavenly Phoenix Academy, and Lunar Shadow Academy. Among all the academies, the Rising Dragon Academy was the strongest and often ranked first, while the Heavenly Phoenix Academy and the Lunar Shadow Academy vied for second place. The Heavenly Phoenix Academy originally had the chance to obtain first place in the Academy Competition three years ago. But its overall strength was slightly inferior to the Rising Dragon Academy, so it had only obtained second place. For Leng Ruohan, this was definitely a pity. He originally thought that he had a chance this time, but…
“Big Brother, I’ll take your place,” Leng Ruoxue said helplessly. It wasn’t like her brother didn’t know that his spiritual power would recover as long as she found the essence restoration grass and concocted the essence restoration pill. Yet he was still acting pitiful with her.
“But if I can concoct the essence restoration pill before the Academy Competition, Big Brother, you will still have to participate,” Leng Ruoxue said. It was better to realize his wish with his own hands.
“Okay,” Leng Ruohan said. But he did not have much hope. Essence restoration grass was something that no one on the Ling Feng Continent had heard of, so how could it be so easy to find?
“Young Master, Young Master Fu is here,” Ming An reported.
“Which Young Master Fu?” Leng Ruoxue asked.
“Xue’er, he is my friend,” Leng Ruohan explained amusedly. Xue’er is acting like a mother beast protecting her cubs, afraid that someone will bully me.
“Since your friend is here, Xue’er will go back first.” Leng Ruoxue didn’t intend to disturb her brother from getting along with his friend.
When she reached the door, Leng Ruoxue happened to meet the Young Master Fu that Ming An mentioned, so she took a look at him. He was a handsome man in his early twenties, tall and full of nobility. She only took one look and walked away.
Leng Ruoxue came to her grandfather’s study and saw Ye Chen playing chess with her grandfather. She couldn’t help but sigh. This freak is really capable. He actually subdued Grandpa and Big Brother. He’s staying at my house and not leaving, but Grandpa and Big Brother are actually letting him do whatever he wants.
“Xue’er, didn’t you go see Ruohan? Why are you back so soon?” Leng Qingtian asked.
“Young Master Fu is here, so I excused myself.”
“What is he doing here?” Leng Qingtian said displeasedly.
“Grandpa, what’s wrong? Is there something wrong with Young Master Fu?” Leng Ruoxue asked doubtfully.
“There’s nothing wrong with him, but there’s something wrong with the Fu family,” Leng Qingtian said in disgust.
“He is Fu Mingyuan, Fu Xiang’s son. That shameless old man Fu Xiang is the prime minister, and he often instigates the emperor to marry his daughter Fu Mingzhu to our Leng family. But I refused,” Leng Qingtian said disdainfully. So what if his daughter is the number one beauty in Eastern Lagoon? That woman isn’t worthy of my outstanding grandson.
“Fu Mingzhu?” She seemed to have heard this name somewhere before. Oh, I remember. When I visited Big Brother at the academy, the woman I met seemed to be called this name.
“Xue’er, when do you plan to go to the academy with Ye Chen?” Leng Qingtian asked. He was quite satisfied with his future grandson-in-law, Ye Chen, so he was happy to create opportunities for them to get along.
“The day after tomorrow.”
“Then Grandpa will get people to prepare. You won’t be able to come home often after going to the academy. Grandpa will miss you,” Leng Qingtian said reluctantly. But he also knew that his granddaughter didn’t go to the academy to study.
“Grandpa, I can come back whenever I want,” Leng Ruoxue said helplessly. No one would dare to stop her from going home.
“Then… why don’t you stay at home every day?” Leng Qingtian asked.
Outside General Leng’s mansion…
“Xue’er, be careful on the road,” Leng Qingtian reminded her worriedly.
“Grandpa, I’m not a child anymore,” Leng Ruoxue said with amusement. She had Ye Chen and Lü Tao by her side, but her grandfather was still so worried.
“Grandpa, Big Brother, go back quickly. I’m leaving.”
“Quill, let’s go,” Leng Ruoxue said to Quill.
Quill was very fast, and they arrived at the Heavenly Phoenix Academy in about half an hour. Leng Ruoxue got Quill to enter the Heaven and Earth Bracelet, and the three of them walked into the academy as if no one else was around.
The Heavenly Phoenix Academy was indeed worthy of being one of the three major academies. Not only was it big, but it was also very imposing. The architecture of the buildings was beautiful and mighty.
“Excuse me, may I know how to get to the principal’s office?” Lü Tao stepped forward and asked a boy.
“I-I’ll take you there,” the ordinary-looking boy said with a blush and a racing heart. Heavens, this woman is so beautiful. He couldn’t help sneaking glances at Leng Ruoxue.
“This is it,” the boy leading the way stammered.
“Thank you.” Lü Tao knocked on the door.
“Lü Tao, wait for us here.” Leng Ruoxue opened the door and walked in with Ye Chen.
