Chapter 137: Questions

As the delicacies were placed on the table, Litai suddenly became energetic, as if he had instantly recovered from the previous torment.

After Lorne brought a few bottles of wine that did not taste as strong, the three officially began eating.

Litai picked up the cutlery, directly aimed at a large piece of meat on the plate, picked it up, and put it into his mouth.

In an instant, the chubby boy’s eyes lit up, and his round face gleamed.

It was even more exquisite than the chef specially invited by the younger prince’s residence. It was completely… out of this world!

Just based on his amazing cooking skills, Litai felt that he was already somewhat convinced.

Well, he had slightly changed his mind now.

The next time his brother the First Prince brought him along, he would first see if it was lunchtime.

If it was lunchtime, then he would risk his life to accompany him and risk his life to have a meal.

If it was not lunchtime, then he would be sorry, but he would not participate in the labor.

The three of them chatted as they began to consume the delicious food on the table.

However, it was mostly the master and disciple, Weiss and Lorne, who were chatting. Litai only focused on eating, occasionally moving his ears to listen to what was being said at the dinner table.

Of course, this kind of teaching between master and disciple was usually Lorne’s show-off moment, so the dinner table was basically filled with his nonsense.

However, these nonsense seemed to be interesting for the younger two lads at the table.

After speaking for a while, the lunch gradually came to an end.

Litai finally had a full meal. At this moment, he had completely forgotten the miserable state of being overworked just now and was only savoring the delicious food on the table.

However, when the young prince’s gaze swept across the tavern, he suddenly noticed a book that Lorne had casually placed on the counter.

Litai immediately patted his forehead. He remembered his main purpose for coming here today.

He was here to see if his big brother, this teacher, was really well-versed in mathematics. He was not here to eat, drink, and do odd jobs.

So, Litai gave a mischievous laugh, and then immediately hid his smile.

With a serious expression, he asked Lorne, “My brother said that you know everything and anything in the world.

“And most importantly, you are very well-versed in arithmetic. You can solve all the problems there are. I don’t know if this is true.”

Lorne was stunned for a moment. Litai’s question was indeed a little abrupt. He had not figured out why maths was involved.

However, Lorne had always been confident. He never allowed himself to have any hesitation or negative answers to such questions. Therefore, Lorne did not think about it and showed a modest expression on his face.

“Don’t listen to his nonsense. I’m not that good.

“But if you’re talking about arithmetics, then I do have some confidence. I can solve all the questions in the time it takes for an incense stick to burn.”


The time it takes for an incense stick to burn? Someone had to be extremely confident in saying that.

If it were him, he would have to think for three days and three nights without a clue. Litai suddenly realized that he still would not know how to act pretentious like this. It was very difficult to act pretentious. However, when it came to the math problems that he loved, the chubby boy still coughed a few times and bowed to Lorne.

“I don’t have any other hobbies in my life. I just like to research and solve all kinds of arithmetic problems. I especially like to study examples of arithmetic questions.

“But some of the problems are too difficult. I’m afraid that I won’t be able to get any results just by thinking hard at home. That’s why I wanted to ask you to solve them.

“I wonder if you’d like to take a look?”

Lorne didn’t answer Litai’s question immediately. Instead, he looked at him up and down in astonishment.

Then he turned to look at Weiss.

Weiss scratched his head and explained with a silly smile, “My brother doesn’t have any other hobbies. He just likes to study ancient scriptures and numerology. This is really where his fun lies.”

Lorne’s eyes suddenly widened.

So there really was such a genius student.

After gaining knowledge, the strange knowledge increased again.

In the past, he always saw all kinds of reports on the news and television, saying that this genius student regarded learning as fun and that the god of learning was awesome.

There were only underachievers and overachievers, and if he racked his brains, he could achieve anything.

Lorne had always thought that. They were only used by the top students and the god of learning to show off. On the surface, they seemed to like it a lot, but behind their backs, they were suffering.

However, only today did he realize that there really were such amazing people in the world.

They actually took the study of mathematics as a pleasure and plunged into the bottomless ocean.

Lorne believed what Weiss and Litai said.

Because in this era, the requirements for studying mathematics were not that strict, and it was definitely not a compulsory subject.

It was only necessary for some specialties or specialized professions.

Therefore, even someone like Litai would never encounter maths unless he was really interested in it.

Lorne could not help but sigh a few times, secretly giving a thumbs up in his heart.

Awesome. This guy was indeed a genius. Why did it feel like all the sons of his friend Charlie were geniuses?

Lorne expressed his interest in cultivating such a math talent because Litai had completely aroused his interest.

As for mathematics, the mathematical problems in the ancient arithmetic scriptures were still relatively lacking and one-sided.

The difficulty could not faze Lorne, who had been in primary school since he was young. On the contrary, he had many advanced problems in his mind.

When the time came, he would throw out these problems instead. Lorne did not show any changes on the surface, but in his heart, he secretly laughed.

Then, he nodded at Litai.

“Okay, I see that you are interested in arithmetic. You’re a true talent.

“If there’s anything you don’t understand, just ask. Today, I’ll show you what it means to be able to do it easily.

“But I have a rule here. Every time you ask a question, I will give you another question.

“As long as you can accept it, you can ask now.”
