Duan Yanhao’s eyes twitched, and a cold glint flashed across his gaze. He gazed deeply at Bai Yaoyao and realized from her expression that she wasn’t joking.
Bai Yaoyao watched him in anticipation. Since he was a major, he definitely had the power to recruit and enlist her in the army.
Silence permeated through the restaurant’s private room as the wind blew in from the window in a soothing manner. The two remained still—one in anticipation and one observing the other party.
Finally, Duan Yanhao broke the silence. “Miss Bai, are you sure that you want to join the army?”
Bai Yaoyao nodded her head. “Yes, I’m very sure. My constitution is good, and I’m not afraid of the tough training. Even if I’m just a foot soldier, I wish to enter.”
“Miss Bai, you need to know that the army is not as easy as you think it is.”
Bai Yaoyao lowered her head and looked at herself. She did have a small stature, so she might not have been convincing. “Is it because I look too frail for it?”
Duan Yanhao furrowed his brows before he shook his head.
Bai Yaoyao thought that he was dissatisfied, so she removed her high heels and said, “I would like to trade some moves with you.”
Duan Yanhao’s expression shifted. He never expected to land himself into such a situation. He came for this matchmaking session because of his ties with Huang Yize, but this lady was way out of his expectations.
Seeing how Duan Yanhao remained unmoving, Bai Yaoyao spoke, “Don’t look down on me. Although you’re a major, I’m not too shabby either.” When she was young, she received training together with Yun Bixue, so she definitely had some skills.
She knew that she couldn’t defeat Duan Yanhao, but the only way for her to get him to allow her to enter the army was to make him admit her skills.
At that moment, Bai Yaoyao forgot all about love and her past. The only thing she was focused on was her green army dream. Perhaps this dream would be able to help her forget about all her unhappiness from the past, giving her a chance to start anew.
Bai Yaoyao sincerely thought that when a person was at their lowest, perhaps just a glimmer of hope from their dream would be able to pull them out of it.
Seeing the clear and bright gaze in Bai Yaoyao’s eyes, Duan Yanhao’s expression shifted slightly as he stood up. “I will give you three moves in advance. If you can make me fall, I will agree to let you join the army to become a soldier.” After saying this, Duan Yanhao stood at his position and waited for Bai Yaoyao to strike.
Meanwhile, Yun Bilu and Huang Yize left for school to self-study after eating dinner. In the classroom, she couldn’t sit still and kept looking around her. In other words, she just wasn’t studying.
The questions in Huang Yize’s notes were completed page after page as he studied quietly.
Looking at how Huang Yize was concentrating on his studies, she did not dare to interrupt him. However, she was feeling anxious and wished that she had someone to talk to. Deep down, she badly wanted to distract Huang Yize to get him to talk to her.
She scratched her head and fiddled with her phone, sighing over and over again.
How could Huang Yize not know what Yun Bilu was feeling? He didn’t bother at first, but he finally couldn’t take it and asked, “Yun Bilu, aren’t you the one who suggested to go here and do self-study? After such a short time, you already cannot continue?”
Yun Bilu pouted. “I’m anxious. I wonder how’s Elder Sister Yaoyao doing right now? Do you think that that soldier is reliable? Could he be so strong that he’ll end up bullying Elder Sister Yaoyao?”
“Yun Bilu, you let your thoughts run wild every time. Do you think such thoughts are reliable?”
“Not reliable, but I can’t help it. How about you drive me to Gujing Restaurant? Once I see them, I won’t feel anxious.”
Seeing the bright gleam in Yun Bilu’s eyes, Huang Yize refused without hesitation. “No.”
