When Duan Yanhao heard Bai Yaoyao’s shocked voice, he gently explained, “Yes, I received unexpected instructions, so I have to go back. If it’s inconvenient to pack your things up, I’ll buy you a new set when we’re there.”
Bai Yaoyao tightened her grip on her phone. She didn’t say a single word, but her expression softened. She answered, “I’ll just pack a few sets of clothes. When we reach the army barracks, do we have to listen to every single order? Do I have to declare all my things?”
“You can leave the things you can’t use in the barracks with me. During your monthly break, you can take them from me.”
Bai Yaoyao’s heart accelerated as she listened to those words. Her heart warmed up, as though a ray of sunlight had shone through it. This proved that Duan Yanhao treated her differently and knew how to take care of her. With this Young Master around, she thought that her days wouldn’t be as miserable. Nevertheless, she had already prepared herself for the tough training.
Bai Yaoyao probably hadn’t realized that she would eventually become a figure widely respected by everyone else when she arrived at the barracks with Duan Yanhao.
At that moment, she wouldn’t have expected that she and her two other close friends would become prominent figures across three important settings. Even international forces wouldn’t dare to offend them.
Of course, she didn’t think that far ahead. She merely wanted to fulfill her dream and live her life to the fullest.
Regardless of how Yun Bixue and Yun Bilu were reluctant to part with her, they could only send Bai Yaoyao off.
When Bai Yaoyao got on Duan Yanhao’s car, Yun Bilu rushed to the front of the car and said to Duan Yanhao, “Elder Brother Soldier, you have to treat Elder Sister Yaoyao well, okay? She can’t handle suffering well, so you have to be nice to her.”
Duan Yanhao looked at how adorable that young girl looked and rolled down the car window. He turned to Xie Limo and raised his brows.
Xie Limo rubbed his brows. He didn’t know what to say to Yun Bilu—he couldn’t bear to scold her. He simply allowed her to say anything that she wanted.
Duan Yanhao replied, “Don’t worry, I’ll take good care of your Elder Sister Yaoyao.”
After hearing those words, Yun Bilu finally felt more assured. Xie Limo held her hand and pulled her back to the walkway, giving space for the car to pass.
Bai Yaoyao looked at Yun Bixue and Yun Bilu, her heart filled with reluctance to part. She didn’t have any family left, so they were the people closest to her.
Earlier on, Old Master Yun had already instructed his servants to prepare a dumpling bento for Bai Yaoyao. He said, “My girl, Yaoyao, the barracks would never be as comfortable as home. You have to eat well, alright?”
“Grandfather Yun, don’t worry. After my training, I’ll still come back and visit you.”
After Bai Yaoyao and Duan Yanhao left, Yun Bixue felt lost for some time and couldn’t find the energy to do anything at all.
Seeing Yun Bixue in this state, Xie Limo felt worried, so he decided to take her out together with Yun Bilu and Huang Yize. Unfortunately, the weather didn’t cooperate, and it began to rain.
Therefore, the family could only wait at home.
Yun Bixue looked at the dark clouds covering the sky outside and laid on the bed. From her peripheral vision, she saw Xie Limo walking in. Surprised, she asked, “Why haven’t you left for work?”
Xie Limo hung his coat at the side and changed into a set of comfortable clothes. Switching on the lights, he got on the bed and stayed by Yun Bixue’s side. He caressed her head to check that she wasn’t running a fever and finally heaved a sigh of relief. “I don’t have much to do today, so I’ll stay at home to keep you company.”
Yun Bixue understood her husband well. She knew that he had stayed because he was worried about her.
In fact, she didn’t even feel like taking a nap at all. She just wanted to lie lazily on the bed. Shortly after, Yun Bixue’s mind went blank, and she began to think about many things. When she thought about the An family in the capital, she felt that it was odd. Why hadn’t she heard anything about them?
