Zombie Princess - Chapter 60
In an instant, Yuan Bao was four years old.
The day after his fourth birthday, he was thrown away by his father at the Royal Kindergarten-Qilin Yard.
As a new student, everyone was interested in him. When they learned that he was Cheng Wang’s son, they were surprised and went crazy.
Then they swarmed up around him, anxious to be his friend.
After class, Yuan Bao came to the yard to play with his new friends.
Chicken fights, swinging, riding a bamboo horse, throwing sepak takraw … the group of friends played with so much passion.
(sepak takraw: kick volleyball)
Yuan Bao, “……”
Although he was a four-year-old child, he considered these games childish, so he left.
Of course, Yuan Bao didn’t care. He sat on a stone bench near the corner, thinking about life with his hands on his cheeks.
The bell rang, and it was time for the lesson. Yuan Bao followed the kids to the classroom.
The teacher walked into the classroom and saw Yuan Bao sitting and gave him a loving smile.
After the teacher and students all arrived, the class officially started.
This was a language class. Children were learning “Thousand Character Text”*
“Open your textbook. Let’s read aloud what we have learned before.”
In the classroom, the children read the words loudly.
“Heaven is dark. Earth is golden. The cosmos is vast and difficult.. Sea is salty. Rivers are fresh, fish dive brow, birds soar on high.”
The teacher stopped next to a chubby boy who was sleeping and drooling. He stretched out his hand to wake him up.
“Xiao Ye, you read this passage.”
The chubby boy stood up stupidly, wiped his saliva, and looked at the textbook, and stumbled while reading.
“Heaven is dark. Earth is golden. The cosmos is barren …”
“Haha!” Someone couldn’t control his laughter.
The chubby boy glanced back with fierce eyes, wanting to see who dared to laugh at him openly, but he was knocked on his head by the teacher. So he had to continue reading.
Yuan Bao sighed. He played with his fingers in boredom.
He could even recite these thousand words back and forth. His father sent him there just because he thought that he was annoying. Also, he didn’t want him to stick to his mother all the time.
Huh, he knew everything. His father just wanted to be alone with his mother.
However, in order to give birth to a younger sister to play with him as soon as possible, he said that he could only sacrifice his time being and accompany this group of little boys.
Yuan Bao held his face in one hand and looked at the cherry tree out of the window.
“…of fruits most prized are pears, and crab-apples; of seasoning most valuable are mustard and ginger, the sea is sally; rivers are fresh; fish dive below; birds roar high.”
The chubby boy read aloud to the end, and when the last word fell out, he was relieved.
The classmates wanted to laugh, but they didn’t dare to.
The teacher called Yuan Bao’s name, “Xiao Yuan, come and read this passage again.”
Yuan Bao didn’t even need the book. He stood up and recited the words. His voice was loud, clear, and he spoke with his childish tone. The teacher smiled and nodded.
There would have been no harm if there was no one to compare with his incompetence. But now this contrast between the chubby boy and Yuan bao was too obvious. Xiao Ye looked at Yuan Bao and felt that he was humiliated.
He clenched his fists. He decided to find his cousin to talk after class.
Xiao Ye’s father was Wang Zhao. Before Yuan Bao’s arrival, among the twelve students in the class, he had the highest status. As if he was the class tyrant, no one dared to provoke him.
Those who dared to preach to him were only teachers.
The teacher tapped on the chubby kid’s head a few times, “Xiao Ye, you were sleeping in the class, you just had to read a few words, and you read nine wrong words. Go back and copy this ten times. Do you understand?”
“Yes,” the little fat guy replied.
“Okay, sit down.”
The class continued. In this class, Yuan Bao was asked six times by the teacher. Each time his answer was right, and the teacher was very satisfied.
In the teacher’s eyes, Yuan Bao was promoted to the good student category.
At noon, the children swarmed into the cafeteria.
As a Royal kindergarten, the food at Qilin Yard was generally good.
Of course, no matter how good the food they had, some parents would always be dissatisfied, with the thought that their child would be aggrieved. So they sent home-made meals delivered by servants.
Xiao Yan was one of them.
Before noon, Zhao Wangfu’s palace servant waited at the gate with a three-tier food box. As soon as the bell rang, the servant immediately rushed in, for fear that his little prince would have to wait for a long time.
“Why are you so slow? Little Master is starving!” Xiao Yan met his servant at the entrance of the cafeteria and stepped forward.
The servants smiled, “I’m a little late, isn’t it?
“Little prince, if you don’t eat them now the dishes would get cold. This slave will serve you the food.”
Every delicious dish was served on the table, and everyone’s eyes fell on it.
The meals in the cafeteria were not bad, but they couldn’t be compared to the delicacies carefully prepared by the Wangfu’s chef.
Xiao Ye glanced proudly at the children who were watching him with envy. He raised his chin and snorted.
He sat down and forked a piece of braised pork into his mouth. His expression of relish made the children even more embarrassed.
Looking at the dishes in their bowls, they felt wronged. But they still had to swallow it.
The school did not allow them to waste food. Whoever wasted any food would get scolded.
Yuan Bao was sitting silently on the side. He neither had a meal from the canteen nor did his servant come to deliver his food. Xiao Ye was very proud.
“Xiao Yuan, come here,” he shouted in anger.
Yuan Bao ignored him and kept looking in the door’s direction.
