Yun Bixue felt that she had too many words to say to Bai Yaoyao, along with too many worries about her. She had always wanted to call Bai Yaoyao, but she was in the army, so it was not convenient for her to answer calls. As such, she could only wait for her call.
Hearing Yun Bixue’s concerned tone, Bai Yaoyao’s eyes reddened a little. She smiled as she said, “Bixue, I am very well. Don’t worry about me. I found my worth here in the army, so I’m doing pretty well now.”
Yun Bixue sighed and said, “Yaoyao, don’t be too hard on yourself. You’re only human, and you still have friends. I’m your kin too.”
“I know. It’s not hard on me at all. Really, I’m doing pretty well.” During this period, she had been training rigorously nonstop to strengthen her physical capabilities. She persevered no matter how tired or hard it was on her.
She knew that the pain in her heart could only be ignored by tiring out her mind and body from continuous training. Only then would her thoughts be emptied from her mind.
It had been a long time since she had heard such words of concern. That was why every time she heard Bixue’s concerned voice, she always felt a sliver of warmth melting her ice-cold heart.
Perhaps it was because of this sliver of warmth that made her persevere until now. If not, she would not know of any other reason she should live on for.
In fact, Duan Yanhao took care of her in the army as well. However, because of his status in the military, it was not possible for the two of them to meet often.
He was good to her, but she felt that Duan Yanhao was nice to all of his subordinates.
As she had been hurt before, she did not dare to wish for Duan Yanhao’s warmth. She was scared that she would become dependent and be hurt again after giving him her feelings.
Hence, her only direction in life was to become an outstanding soldier who could give back to her country.
As she had been busy for a long while, she did not have time to call Yun Bixue.
The reason why she could make the call today was because she got injured in a training exercise and was admitted to the hospital for treatment.
Although Bai Yaoyao said that it was not hard on her, Yun Bixue understood her and knew deep down that it was even if she did not say it.
“Yaoyao, if it’s really too tiring, just come back. Find someone who will treasure you and spend the rest of your life with you. You can have a family of your own then.”
Hearing the word ‘family’ made Bai Yaoyao’s heart clench in pain.
Family. How she wished she had a family of her own. Even then, she did not dare to hope for it.
“Bixue, I’m doing fine in the army. Everyone helps each other out, just like one big family. Bixue, I didn’t get to experience this before, but now I feel like this kind of life is pretty fulfilling. Also, after I become a soldier, I can protect the country and give back to society. I feel like my life will become more exciting then.” A faint smile crept up on Bai Yaoyao’s lips as she thought of her bunkmates and teammates who were all concerned about her.
Yun Bixue was still worried as she asked, “Even then, I still can’t feel assured because you’re in there alone. I heard from Bilu that the person who brought you in is called Duan Yanhao. Does he treat you well?”
“Yeah, he’s pretty nice. He will try his best to make time to look after me. However, I can’t rely on others all the time. It’s better to rely on myself to do things. Bixue, actually, there are a lot of friendships and kinships in our lives aside from romantic love. There are many more meaningful things waiting for me to do, so I will make sure I live my life to the fullest.”
The two sisters continued chatting with each other like this. Bai Yaoyao did not tell Yun Bixue that she was injured and only talked about happy things.
The two of them chatted for a long time until it was time for Bai Yaoyao to change her bandages. It was only then that she ended the call reluctantly.
Yun Bixue stared at her phone in a trance. Xie Limo hugged her and said, “Your best friend will be fine, don’t think too much about it.”
