Dear everyone from the academy,

I hope this letter finds you well.

It’s been a long while, you have all been missed.

It shames me to say that after leaving the academy for too long, my aging brain has begun to forget how the academy looked like.

Since it has been this long, I reckon that things probably have changed in the academy.

I wonder if the dean’s cat has been found.

I wonder if Professor Kumar’s experiment is successful.

I wonder if Professor Marlin is still working hard to meet his true love.

I wonder if Princess Luna became the valedictorian.

I wonder if Elder White has found a disciple who could inherit his mantle.

I wonder… Well, there are so many things I don’t know.

I didn’t expect that it has already been three years since I left the academy to pursue my dreams. Time really flies.

Three years. How many three years do I still have in my lifetime?

Sometimes, I think about why human life is fleeting. Why can’t they easily live tens of thousands of years like other long-living species?

If things had been that way, we wouldn’t be haunted by our imminent demise in our twilight years.

However, such is the law of heaven, and our lifespan is a long-destined thing that cannot be changed.

Therefore we can only do our best to make the most out of our lives, or perhaps pursue after illusory religions.

Oops, I have spoken too much.

People turn melancholic as they age, especially after wasting a lot of their cherished time.

I’m writing to not only report my safety, but also to recommend Lilith into the academy.

For the past three years, I have been teaching her dragon language as her home tutor. Therefore, my comment on her personal qualities should be credible.

Don’t ask me why I didn’t go and fulfill my dream of finding a real dragon and pursuing the true meaning of dragon language, and instead tutoring someone.

I can only say that one may have great dreams, but sometimes one can only enjoy the harsh realities.

When things lost their mysterious veil, you would feel…

I have gotten to know Lilith well during my service as her home tutor for the past few years.

First of all, she has an excellent family.

It was probably obvious from just the fact that they were able to hire me as her home tutor.

But most importantly, she has a good mother.

Her mother is a gentle, virtuous, caring, generous, graceful, beautiful and dignified woman.

It is not wrong to say that she is a role model for women in the new era.

As her home tutor, I value this a lot.

Even as I’m writing this letter late at night, Lilith’s mother is still by my side. She is helping me in phrasing my words and grinding ink for me with her claws… I mean, delicate hands.

Although I have stated many times that I don’t need a swimming pool worth of ink for writing a letter, Lilith’s mother is still smiling and joking about pushing me into a pool if I were to say anything wrong.

She’s indeed a mother… with a sense of humor.

With such an enlightened mother, it is very unlikely that the child she raised would be a bad person.

After tutoring Lilith for three years, I came to fully realize just how…. interesting she is.

She is a person who has her own ideas and always puts them into action.

She is also unbridled by nature, fearless and never intimidated by threats.

As for her strengths, she has plenty.

For example…

For example…

For example…

For example, she is unbridled by nature, fearless and never intimidated by threats.

But more importantly, she is gifted in dragon language.

She is so gifted that she can speak in dragon language like it is her mother tongue.

But since Lilith is too unbridled by nature, fearless and never intimidated by threats, the outcome of my three years of tutoring her is rather unsatisfactory.

Hence, I have decided to send her to further her studies in the academy.

I believe being surrounded by many hardworking people would motivate her better.

The above is the reason why I would like to recommend Lilith to the academy. And the following are some of my personal favors.

Since Lilith is unbridled by nature, fearless and never intimidated by threats, she may conflict with her teachers or professors.

There’s nothing much to worry about her and the other ordinary students, as I believe once her strength has been witnessed, not many will dare to provoke her.

Therefore, I hope all of you can be more understanding if there are conflicts between Lilith and her teachers or professors.

If Lilith made any mistakes, just give her a little punishment instead of making it into a life and death situation.

Teachers and professors are representatives of the academy and the empire. They can’t possibly get angry over a little girl, right?

If that isn’t enough to convince all of you, then…

(Say no to content thief!)

For the sake of the contributions that I, Flint, have made over the decades of my teaching career, if Lilith ever committed an unforgivable mistake in the academy, please do not punish her or drive her away from the academy. I shall bear all the responsibilities for her.

If my soon-decaying body can still move by the time I return in the future, I shall repay this favor.

This is the request of my life.

That’s pretty much what I wanted to say.

Also, please help me tell Elder White that if he has yet to find a suitable disciple, Lilith may be a good candidate.

Yours truly, Flint.

………

“What do you think, Elder White?” Professor Marlin asked.

“What else can I say? I have faith in old Flint’s judgement.” Elder White stroked his beard with a delighted look on his face that made him look twenty years younger.

“I didn’t expect old Flint could still solve the worry in my heart after wandering out there for a few years. I’m at my wits end looking for a disciple.”

He looked at Lilith who was still irritated, but found her increasingly pleasing to his eyes.

“Unbridled by nature, fearless and never intimidated by threats.

Weren’t those the qualities befitting of warriors?

It seemed like Heaven had eyes. At least, I wouldn’t have to take my skills into my grave.”

Professor Marlin shook his head. That wasn’t what he was asking.

He ran his thumb over the academy’s coat of arms on the envelope.

What made Professor Flint willing to bear all the responsibilities just so that the academy wouldn’t punish Lilith?

Small punishments were allowed but not heavy punishments.

That made her no different than Princess Luna.

Could it be that this Lilith was also some country’s princess who was traveling incognito?

“Can you still chase me away now, sir?”
“I guess not.”
“Hehe. Weren’t you displaying your authority just now? Can’t even make me leave now eh?”

Professor Marlin raised his eyebrow. This was the first time he had met a student that could piss him off this much.

Even so, the words in Flint’s letter echoed in his mind.

Forget it. As a professor, he shouldn’t be squabbling with a little girl.

“You can’t even do that and you still call yourself a professor. I think even those street singers are better than you. At least they are capable in their work.”

Hehe, I’m not going to get angry.

With a wave of his hand, Marlin summoned up an invisible force that rolled Lilith up and threw the smug-looking little girl to where Gulliver had disappeared off to earlier.

At least that was out of his sight now.

He then turned to the remaining one hundred and forty-six candidates.

“Let’s cut it short. You have all passed the entrance exam. Well then…”

The space behind Profesor Marlin was suddenly ripped open before it gradually expanded into a huge door.

There were green mountains, clear water, chirping birds, blooming flowers, magnificent buildings and pavilions beyond it.

“Welcome to St. Caroline Academy.”
