“Burden?” the vice dean echoed while stroking his beard.

“I am very pleased to know that there are still students worried for my academy at a time like this. Even so… This is a matter for old geezers like us to settle. Students like yourself should just focus on your training. No need to worry about it.”

Lilith pouted. “So, you’re saying you can afford to pay back a hundred million?”

The pleased look on the vice dean’s face instantly stiffened.

“And in only a month.”

“…”

He pulled his beard hard and unexpectedly plucked two strands.

“If you can’t afford to pay it back in a month, this incident will be escalated to a diplomatic level. If that happens, I think it will greatly impact the academy.”

“…”

“If Lesiah made a request for the Holy Dragon Empire to demolish the academy, do you think the Holy Dragon Empire would agree to it?”

“…”

Lilith raised her eyebrow teasingly and smiled. “Are you really going to let the academy disappear just like this, hmm?”

“Alright, you’ve said enough.” The vice dean massaged his temples with a troubled look on his face and asked, “How are you planning to help our academy then, Lilith?”

Lilith’s smile turned mysterious. “I can help you pay.”

“Pay?”

The vice dean looked at the petite loli skeptically. “You can afford that? We’re talking about 100 million gold coins here. Even the richest man in our Holy Dragon Empire may not be able to gather this much money on such a short notice.

“Don’t worry, I can definitely afford that.” Lilith patted her own flat chest. “Money is the least of my problems, I have tons of it.”

After saying that, she even pointed to the man standing next to her with her lips. “You can ask Elder Mord if you don’t believe me. No one knows about my wealth better than him.”

Beads of cold sweat instantly formed on Elder Mord’s forehead.

How did I get dragged into this when I’m only here to listen?

However, Lilith had no intention of letting him go. She clapped and smiled. “I’m sure our most honorable chief disciplinarian won’t tell lies, right?”.

“Yes, yes… That’s certainly true…”

Elder Mord straightened up and said with a serious tone, “Lilith is indeed rich.”

Truth be told, Elder Mord never expected Lilith was actually wealthy to this extent. Was a hundred million gold coins really a small sum that she could easily take out?

From the way Lilith was acting, she seemed like she could really easily take out a hundred million gold coins.

The vice dean fell silent for a moment before suddenly asking, “Is there any condition? What’s your condition for helping the academy?”

As the leader who managed the entire St. Caroline Academy for several decades, the vice dean had dealt with various important figures. Hence, he was not naive enough to believe that someone would fork out a hundred million gold coins just because she wanted to contribute to the academy.

Not even a seemingly harmless and cute little loli was an exception.

“Of course there’s some conditions, but…” Lilith waved her long finger in front of the vice dean’s eyes and chuckled. “Don’t worry, my conditions are nothing difficult for the academy.”

……

“It looks like you’ve settled it.”

When Lesiah saw Lilith come out of the conference building on the peak of St. Caroline’s mountain, a smile immediately bloomed across her face.

“How did it go? Did the vice dean accept your condition?”
“Of course.”
Lilith winked at Lesiah. “Have you forgotten who I am? I’m Lilith, the great Dragon Princess. This is just a piece of cake for me.”

Lesiah rolled her eyes at Lilith and said with some annoyance, “Sureeeee.”

However in the next moment, a melodious laughter that sounded like the distant tinkling of soft bells spilled through the princess’ lips.

It was a sincere laugh. Her furrowed brows relaxed, like clouds parting to reveal a beautiful green mountain behind them.

Her eyes turned into crescents, like reflections of crescent moons on the lake at the foot of the mountain.

Lilith was stunned by the beautiful scenery in front of her for a moment and then…

“PFFFT…!”

She doubled over with laughter while clutching her stomach. She did not know what exactly amused her but she found everything that happened so far to be funny.

Lilith was both the evilest criminal in the history of mankind and also the hero named Brave who shone upon mankind like the rising sun of the east.

Not only that, the academy now owed Lilith a hundred million that she did not even need to pay. Even if she had to, it would not be a difficult task for her.

Then, those conditions…

Their laughter intertwined and was carried into the distance by the wind.

Fortunately there was no one else around. Otherwise, they would have thought that Princess Lesiah and the academy’s celebrity, Lilith, got drugged by someone.

The two laughed for a very long time before they managed to regain their composure.

“So, what’s your plan now, our dear Lord Brave?” Lesiah asked teasingly, with a hint of a smile on her lips.

Lilith tilted her head to the side and thought for a moment before replying, “I guess I’ll be staying at the academy for a while longer.”

“You’re still going to stay?”

The light in Lesiah’s eyes dimmed unnoticeably.

“You still have something important here?”

Lilith scratched her head. “Not really. I heard this is the best place to learn dragon language in the whole continent, so I’ll have to stay put.”

“Dragon language?”

The smile on Lesiah’s face stiffened as she scrutinized Lilith skeptically.

Was this really Lilith or just an impostor?

Why would the great Dragon Princess learn her native language from humans? This sounded as ridiculous as hearing a big bad wolf asking a little sheep to show him how to hunt.

Lilith puffed out her cheeks and said, “Alright, alright. Stop staring. I know a Dragon Princess who cannot even speak her own language is a disgrace.”

Yet her face did not show the slightest look of shame that she claimed.

Lesiah was a bit confused. Now that she thought about it, she had never seen Lilith transform into a real dragon even in the most dire situation.

Then again… was this not because Lilith was inherently different from the others?

“What about you? What are your plans?” Lilith asked, with a hint of hope in her voice.

“What plans could I possibly have other than resuming my royal duties as a crown princess? My loyal subjects still depend on me.”

Lesiah turned her head and gazed into the distance, in the direction where one of the nine largest human nations was. On the outside, the Macedonian Empire seemed powerful. However, it was actually a fragile nation that had been on the verge of collapse since the passing of the late emperor.

It was ironic that this seemingly huge empire could lose anyone but not her little self. A crown princess like her who seemed to be most useless was actually more important than anybody else. Because as soon as she was gone, the violent political undercurrents in the empire would definitely break the floodgates.

Without her, the anthill that was a thousand miles away from the floodgates would definitely be destroyed. This was why she could not afford to abandon her empire.

“Ah, ruling over an empire is definitely a tough job. I’m sorry that this is the only thing that I am too powerless to be of any help.”

Lilith shook her head. However, she did not seem to notice that despite the sadness in Lesiah’s voice, the princess’ eyes were sparkling with sly mirth.

Well, what was power if you did not abuse it from time to time?
