“I was wondering where a brat like you ran off to. So, it turns out you ran off to buy something to eat!”

Ezart ruthlessly punched Ri Xiang Ye’s head. Just as Ezart had said, Ri Xiang Ye was carrying a huge pile of food that he was gorging himself on. At first glance, it looked like he was entirely buried in food.

“I’m sho hungwee…” Ri Xiang Ye blinked, trying hard to eat and speak at the same time.

“Didn’t you just eat?” Ezart muttered.

But he swiped a bag of snacks, pulled opened the bag, and casually sat down. One after another, the snacks were crammed into his mouth. He offhandedly asked, “Hey, where’d you go just now? How come I didn’t see you? You can’t have been eating this whole time, right?”

“No, I did go in!” Ri Xiang Ye protested with his mouth full.

Actually, Ri Xiang Ye knew that this was a colossal battle simulator.

The battle simulator gymnasium was Yelan Academy’s most iconic feature. It was rumored that the principal went out of his way to develop it as a collaborative effort. When Ri Xiang Ye had chosen to come to Yelan Academy, a large part of the reason was because of the simulator.

A giant projection appeared in front of Ri Xiang Ye as soon as he walked in. On the screen was a sagely old man. There were so many wrinkles on his face that even a mosquito wouldn’t dare to land there, for risk of being squished between the folds.

But this seemingly virtuous elder revealed a mischievous smile and flippantly said, “Hello, little friend! I am Yelan Academy’s principal, Ah Na Yi. Please enter your password and then you can begin battling to your heart’s content.”

“I do not have a password,” Ri Xiang Ye declared honestly.

“Now, Dìdi. You have to remember, don’t ever show how strong you are in front of your classmates.”

Ri Xiang Yan straightened his little brother’s necktie, took a step back, and carefully scrutinized his little brother.

Ri Xiang Ye was currently wearing a dark blue high school uniform. By his side was a new book bag. His hair had been neatly combed by Ri Xiang Yan. On top of that, he was wearing a pair of large black frame glasses. Ri Xiang Ye looked just like an ordinary high school student.

A very dorky-looking high school student.

In the background, An Te Qi wisely decided to continue drinking his coffee instead of commenting, although he felt Ri Xiang Yan’s impression of a high school student had probably stagnated in the past century.

“Gēge, don’t go. Play with me for a little more. A little more, O.K.?”

Three-year-old Ri Xiang Ye, whose name was often shortened to Ah Ye by Ri Xiang Yan, always called out in this way every time his brother had to leave.

“Can’t! Ah Ye, Gēge has to go to class. Otherwise, the scary economics teacher will be angry, and then Gēge will be miserable.” At that point, Ri Xiang Yan couldn’t help sticking out his tongue. Saying these sorts of things, would his little brother not dare to take economics later?

Hearing that his big brother wouldn’t stay longer, Ah Ye lowered his head. His small mouth pouted like a duck’s. He looked pitiful, like he had been wronged.

Ri Xiang Yan couldn’t help smiling in resignation and shouting, “Fine! Fine! I’ll play for another ten minutes. Don’t be such a rascal.”

Ah Ye lifted his small head, his happiness fully displayed on his face, and ran to the toy box in excitement. He picked up a few of the rubber balls his brother had given him and cheerfully shouted, “Let’s play catch!”

“Playing with the balls again? You’ve smashed my face flat. Horrible little Ah Ye, you’re definitely out to ruin your Gēge’s looks.”

Chapter One: The Night the Choice was Made—translated by Trespasserby (proofread by Arcedemius and elisa; C/E edited by Amgine & lucathia)

A man was sitting at a large, black office desk. With a head of ashen hair, he was visibly getting on in years but was still handsome in poise and visage.

There were two rows of tables and chairs before him, with many computers on each table. Several charts and reports related to the current year’s operations were hanging on the surrounding walls. This was clearly an office or meeting room, and the man was sitting in the seat undoubtedly intended for the most important person.

But for now, this place was empty. The expression on the man’s face was also not that of a bold executive. He only stared ahead with a blank gaze, as if waiting for something.

At that moment, the enormous, carved hardwood doors slowly opened.

The man had had these doors specially built. Otherwise, in this age when electronic equipment was everywhere else, automatic doors were the most basic of installations. Even ordinary households didn’t have wooden doors that had to be opened manually anymore.

In the past, these doors were the man’s prized possessions. But now, the way that they slowly opened made his heart catch in his throat. He would rather have an electronic door before him, where one push of a button would cause it to instantaneously open and allow him to immediately confront the visitor. That would be far better than watching the door slowly, slowly open; far better than hoping “it might not be him” when he clearly knew who was behind the door.

A foot was set down. With exceedingly graceful footsteps, that person entered the room while showing a consistently perfect amount of hauteur. It was commanding but not aggressive, nor was it insufferable. A handsome face, a slender figure, and a perpetual gracefulness—Ri Xiang Yan1 was practically as dazzling as the sun.

Everyone always had praise for him, especially when this man like the sun began participating in his father’s business—the Sun Alliance. He led the business in a rapid expansion, causing everyone within the alliance to sing his praises even more.

Seeing this dazzling young man, even though they were facing off against each other, the man at the office desk could not help but feel a surge of pride. This was his son, his own flesh and blood, the king of suns he had created with his own hands!
