Bai Yaoyao gave Yun Bilu a smile as she tried to placate her, but at that moment, the movement affected her bruise, causing her to suck in a deep breath.
“Elder Sister Yaoyao, at this stage, you’re still saying that you’re okay? Are you trying to drive me to my death from worry? Your beautiful face became like this, so you definitely need to rest for two to three days. Oh my gosh, this is driving me crazy. Tell me who bullied you. I’ll get back at him and make sure he apologizes to you on his knees!”
Hearing Yun Bilu’s angry tone, Bai Yaoyao chuckled. “Make him grovel on the floor? You can’t win him in a fight.”
Yun Bilu thought about it and had a sudden realization. “Elder Sister Yaoyao, it can’t be… You were hit by that soldier? Those are violent tendencies!”
Her cheeks puffed with anger, she tugged Huang Yize’s arm and complained, “What kind of person did you introduce to Elder Sister Yaoyao? How dare he hit her? I will definitely get revenge for her!” While saying this, she dragged Huang Yize towards the door.
Huang Yize had just removed his coat, and his shirt became wrinkled from Yun Bilu’s tugging. He pulled her to a stop and sat her down on a stool. “Calm down, alright? You’re too reckless. Clarify the situation first.” He was well aware of Duan Yanhao’s temperament—he would definitely not hit a woman.
Bai Yaoyao walked over and grabbed Yun Bilu’s hand. She explained, “Don’t worry, he didn’t hit me. I fell. Don’t misunderstand, alright?”
“Elder Sister Yaoyao, don’t lie to me. You managed to get injured from a fall?”
Seeing Yun Bilu’s clear gaze, Bai Yaoyao felt a little embarrassed as she answered softly, “It was me who wanted to spar with him.”
Yun Bilu spluttered. Bai Yaoyao didn’t look like she was lying, so Yun Bilu raised a thumb at her. “Elder Sister Yaoyao, you go, girl! Such a badass. I truly respect you.”
Even Huang Yize couldn’t believe what Bai Yaoyao just said. His eyebrows twitched as he revealed an incredulous expression.
After seeing their reactions, Bai Yaoyao felt even more embarrassed. “I was too hard-headed, that’s how I got these injuries, so don’t blame anyone, okay?”
Yun Bilu asked slyly, “So, Elder Sister Yaoyao, tell me quickly. How is he? Do you like him? Was it love at first sight?”
Bai Yaoyao shook her head. “What are you talking about? It was just my teenage dream to join the army. I want to become a soldier in the future.”
Yun Bilu widened her eyes, not comprehending what she just heard. “Elder Sister Yaoyao, if you like the army, you can just go and take a look. Being a soldier is really tough. Your snow-white skin will become tanned and dry. Your body won’t be able to take it as well. You cannot take that kind of suffering.”
Bai Yaoyao shook her head and smiled bitterly. “What’s a little pain to my body? It’s the pain in the heart that hurts the most.”
Yun Bilu hugged Bai Yaoyao. It felt as if Elder Sister Yaoyao lost a lot of weight. “Elder Sister Yaoyao, you are so frail. Our heart aches to see you become a soldier.”
“And it’s only your heart that will ache for me. After I attend Bixue’s wedding, I will become a soldier. I received his promise today.”
“You mean, he agreed?”
Bai Yaoyao nodded. “Yes, he’s a major, so he has the power and capability to enlist me into the army. I won’t hinder him.” In Bai Yaoyao’s mind, perhaps it was only through continuous training of her body that she could really free her heart.
Yun Bilu could only nod her head at Bai Yaoyao’s decision. “That’s fine then. I will support you in your decisions, but if you ever get tired, let me know, okay? Hmm… Why don’t I join the army with you?”
