Bai Yaoyao nodded. She wanted to become a soldier because it was her dream. It was also a way to make herself busy and fulfill her life at the same time. That way, her mind wouldn’t run wild and get stuck in misery. She must give herself some hope and direction in life so that she wouldn’t be in so much pain.
After Duan Yanhao dropped her off at the villa, Bai Yaoyao bade him goodbye and watched him drive away. She stood there for a long time, her eyes staring afar. It seemed like she was in a daze.
At that moment, Yun Bilu walked over to Bai Yaoyao’s side and asked, “Elder Sister Yaoyao, which handsome man sent you home? Why can’t you bear to part with him?”
Bai Yaoyao’s heart skipped a beat. Turning around, she realized it was Yun Bilu and smacked her gently. “You sneaky girl. I didn’t even hear you approach! You frightened me!”
“Elder Sister Yaoyao, tell me the truth. Who was that?”
“Not telling you.”
“Oh, my lovely Elder Sister Yaoyao. Hurry up and tell me. If you don’t, I’ll die of curiosity. I’ll bother and annoy you till you can’t sleep tonight!” Yun Bilu kept on pestering Bai Yaoyao. In fact, she was curious and worried at the same time. Who would Elder Sister Yaoyao not bear to part with? This was a good sign as it showed that Elder Sister Yaoyao might have already gotten over her past relationship.
Bai Yaoyao looked behind Yun Bilu and said, “Oh, Young Master Huang, you’re here too.”
Yun Bilu turned around immediately. Realizing that Huang Yize wasn’t even there, she stomped her feet and chased after Bai Yaoyao.
That night, Bai Yaoyao finally told Yun Bilu that it was Duan Yanhao!
Yun Bilu almost jumped in shock. “For real? Elder Sister Yaoyao, you’re not joking, right? That soldier actually came to Ning An City? Oh, wow! He went out of his way and came to see you here!”
Bai Yaoyao hugged her pillow, her imagination running wild. She didn’t say a single word.
Yun Bilu looked at Bai Yaoyao’s unhappy expression and asked, “Elder Sister Yaoyao, what’s wrong? This is such an exciting piece of news, y’know? Why do you look unhappy?”
“Earlier, before he offered to send me home, his phone rang. After that, he said that he had something important to deal with. I saw clearly that it was a woman’s name. Perhaps he isn’t the one for me.” Bai Yaoyao felt rather miserable deep down. Feeling lost, she wasn’t so sure where to go at that point. It seemed like she had lost her direction in life.
“Elder Sister Yaoyao, maybe that woman is his elder sister, aunt, or mother. Even I save my elder sister and brother-in-law’s numbers under their full names. It’s not safe to include your relationships on your contacts these days because if you lose your phone, the person who picks it up might scam your relatives!”
Bai Yaoyao thought about it and agreed that Yun Bilu’s words made sense.
After returning to their rooms, Yun Bilu sat on her bed and couldn’t help but read about Country E’s news. When she saw that Xiamu Qingyan and Xirong Ziye’s wedding had been canceled, she almost rolled off the bed in shock.
Yun Bilu almost smashed her phone too. She clutched her phone and rushed excitedly into Huang Yize’s room.
As soon as she opened the door, she saw Huang Yize stepping out of the bathroom at that moment. The bathrobe on his body was unbuttoned, revealing an enticing view.
Yun Bilu stared in shock and couldn’t shift her gaze away. She tried to speak, but she could only stutter and gulp.
Huang Yize’s gaze glowed darkly, as though a thought had vanished as soon as it appeared. He slowly tied the ribbon on his bathrobe and looked at Yun Bilu. “Why did you rush in here without knocking?” He had already told her so many times, but she simply had a poor memory.
“I forgot because I got too excited.” Yun Bilu wondered why he was always just done with his shower each time she came into his room. It was as though he would take a bath after each meal. He was really a clean freak. On the other hand, she hadn’t even bathed in two days.
