½ Prince Volume 9: Sequel
Original novel in Chinese by: 御 我 (Yu Wo)
Chapter 1: Feng Long Ming, Part One – translated by raylight
My name is Feng Long Ming, and I am sixteen this year. Perhaps you may feel that my name is a good name, with the meaning of becoming famous throughout the world just like a dragon. However, I apologize for having to shatter your conjectures. The reason why I am called Feng Long Ming is because my father is called Feng Yang Ming, and my mother is called Long Shui Han. With my parents’ personalities that I know too well, they had probably written out all six words of their names on pieces of paper, and then chose three of them to form a name… Thank God! I wasn’t called Shui Long or Feng Long, or even worse, if they had picked “Feng Shui,” then I really don’t know if I should or shouldn’t go to a Feng Shui master to ask him to take me as a disciple.1
Truthfully, I have never understood how my father and my mother, being so messed-up, managed to raise a sensible kid like me. Could it be the result of things developing in the opposite direction when they become too extreme?
(Wrong! That’s ’cause both your parents and my parents are messed-up, that’s why they would throw a four-year-old girl to a five-year-old boy to take care of. If you, who had started being a replacement father since the age of five, hadn’t become more serious and responsible, the two of us would have been reincarnated a long time ago.)
