This is the first chapter in book 3 – Dream of the Demon Prince.
Today we will publish 3 chapters, after which we will publish 2 chapters a week, one on Tuesday and one on Friday.
As some of you might have noticed, the chapter-length has decreased. It is because the long chapters were very hard to write, and it often took us far too long to write it, compared to when we would be able to publish. Now we are going to be certain to keep with the release schedule, but the price for this is the length o the chapters. I hope you will bear with us.
Luo Xiao was standing at the entrance to the Cloudsoar Academy, looking at the many students who were exiting, on their way home on vacation, or perhaps out to gain some combat experience.
There were also those students who were staying in the capital for the sake of attracting the attention of their preferred factions, but all in all, the Academy was closed for a few months to give the students some well-deserved vacation.
Luo Xiao had stayed the last couple of days within Jiang Yao’s palace, being pampered and indulged. Anything he had wanted, he had been given, and even many things that he had never thought about before were presented to him.
Many of these items were spiritual energy items, such as spiritual fruits, herbs, and the like. Although he felt slightly bad about taking them, he knew that Jiang Yao was spoiling him and that the demon prince would feel troubled if he had not accepted them.
Jiang Yao was an infatuated ruler. During these few days, he had spent at least a whole day in bed, just hugging Luo Xiao, chatting with him and kissing him, hugging him, and indulging in the sweetness of having his lover close to him.
If it wasn’t because Luo Xiao had eventually turned so crimson and embarrassed, he was sure that Jiang Yao would have gone even further.
After a bit of time, Luo Xiao realized that although it was Jiang Yao who had suggested they went on a trip, he was the one who was most reluctant to part with their comfortable and very intimate lifestyle, but after hearing the reminder about the moon anise, Jiang Yao finally decided on the departure date.
And thus, this day had arrived. Luo Xiao had left the Prince’s palace a few hours before to pack up a few things from the accommodation he had within the Academy.
Now that the hours had passed, he had previously planned to meet with Jiang Yao outside the Academy’s entrance. It was no longer a secret who was his backer, so there was no need to hide. Although they had not done anything to tell people, the royals already knew. Hence all in important positions knew.
Initially, he was hiding their relationship because of fear for what Jiang Luo would do to him. Still, now the fourth demon prince was already aware of their relationship, so hiding it seemed pointless.
While he waited, he saw the happy faces, all were happy to have a vacation, and the mood was joyful. Luo Xiao was also unable to stop the corners of his lips from curling upwards in a hopeful smile.
He could still remember the days they had been on the road towards Cloudsoar City. Their first kiss, their nights together in the caravans, the days on the streets.
All of it was sweet memories to him, and he was eager to get new memories. Although he did not dislike the days at the Academy, he had to admit that he was looking forward to the days on the road. There he and Jiang Yao would be together every day and every hour of the day.
Although he was too embarrassed to say it to Jiang Yao, he was excited. Not far away, the seventh demon prince was arriving. He was not flying as he usually would, but walking on his feet. Even so, his bearing and atmosphere were so oppressive and overbearing that no one dared to approach him; all they did was to observe him with reverence.
What was the seventh demon prince doing here? Many of the regular students were unaware of the relationship between Jiang Yao and Luo Xiao. Still, when they saw the smile filled with tenderness as the cold and callous demon prince was looking at the younger man, they instantly understood.
And then they were filled with shock. Luo Xiao and Jiang Yao? This… Was this real?
Completely ignoring the many people’s completely stunned expressions, Jiang Yao dragged Luo Xiao into his embrace and placed a kiss on the top of his hair.
“Let’s go?” he asked. He was completely ignoring the many people who were observing them, thinking that they had no importance to them. Even if they knew that Luo Xiao was his lover, what could they do about it? All his enemies already knew. So there was nothing to hide any longer.
Instead, he wanted to shout to the entire world that Luo Xiao was his. This beautiful little boy was his lover, not just anyone. The pride in his heart was so intense that Luo Xiao blushed furiously.
“How can you still be so shy?” Jiang Yao chuckled when he saw his appearance, but he released the young boy and grasped his hand in his.
Together the two started strolling down the roads of the capital city, although they were in a crowd, they acted as if they were in their own little world, and because of the fact that one of these people were Jiang Yao, no one dared to be in their way.
The roads were bustling with life, hawkers and merchants were standing all around yelling out prices for their wares, some sold food others sold items.
Jiang Yao was immensely familiar with these streets and the merchants, but because of the assassination attempt last time, Luo Xiao had not been much within the Cloudsoar City itself. Most of his time was spent in the Academy or within the Prince’s palace.
Everyone within the city knew of Jiang Yao, so seeing him walk with a young boy hand in hand, they were shocked.
Who was this youngster? How could he possibly be so close to the dangerous seventh prince?
