Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Song Jinghuan didn’t know that her alias was about to be exposed. She said with a flattered expression, “Yes, I didn’t expect you to even know this. I’m honored.”
Meng Wu choked again, but he was no longer as angry as before. He smiled heartily. “You’ve killed more than a hundred enemy soldiers. In two months, you were promoted to a hundred-man captain as a new recruit. People call you Daredevil Song. It’s difficult for me not to notice.”
He reached out his hand and praised Song Jinghuan. “As expected, the younger generation will surpass us.”
“Are you all right?” Song Jinghuan thought.
The burly man with a full beard made a loving expression. No matter how one looked at him, he looked like a child trafficker with ill intentions.
Song Jinghuan shivered and had goosebumps all over his body. She smiled dryly and said, “Haha, General, you flatter me. Since you’re busy with military affairs, I won’t disturb you here. I’ll take my leave first.”
Meng Wu nodded in satisfaction. As expected, children still had to be coaxed. Wasn’t this much more polite?
He had thought about it. Since he suspected that this person was related to the Bulwark Duke’s residence, he could not offend the person before confirming it.
It wouldn’t be too late to clean up after confirming his suspicions.
He narrowed his eyes and waved his hand good-naturedly. “Go. If you encounter any difficulties in the future, come and look for me.”
Song Jinghuan was speechless.
“Sister-in-law, help. Someone wants to abduct your little Huanhuan.” she thought.
Shen Yijia sneezed. She rubbed her nose and continued to knock.
In two days, the second wooden kite was almost done. If nothing went wrong, they would reach Nanling Pass tonight.
“Did you catch a cold?”
It was his fault for being so focused on the kite these past few days that he did not notice this girl’s physical condition.
Without waiting for Shen Yijia to answer, he picked her up and placed her in the hammock he had specially made for her with vines. He touched her face and asked, “Where do you feel unwell?”
“By the way, Mother left some medicine for you before she left. I’ll get it for you.”
Shen Yijia was stunned and quickly pulled him back. “I don’t have a cold.” How could she catch a cold? Someone must be thinking about her.
Seeing that Song Jingchen didn’t believe her, she said, “I’m not feeling unwell.
It’s just that…’
“What?” Song Jingchen looked nervous.
“I’m just a little hungry. I want to eat your roasted meat.”
At the mention of roasted meat, Shen Yijia swallowed. She did not know what had happened to her these past two days. She was especially hungry. She had just eaten lunch.
She glanced at Song Jingchen’s expression. Would her beautiful husband think that she was holding him up?
Song Jingchen rubbed her head with heartache. “You’ve done a lot of work in the past two days. It’s normal for you to get hungry quickly. Wait for me. I’ll go make it for you now.”
Shen Yijia’s eyes lit up and she quickly nodded. “Then go. I’ll go and assemble the remaining parts of the wooden kite. We can set off after eating.”
Song Jingchen pressed her back down. “Rest. Thirty Thousand and You Yi can do the rest.”
“That’s right. Young Madam, take a break. You Yi and I know how to assemble the kite.”
With You Yi’s magnificent feat, he was not worried that his corpse would end up in the wilderness. Instead, he was a little eager to try.
You Yi nodded silently. He wanted to try again as soon as possible.
“Yes, I won’t embarrass myself again next time.” he thought.
Since the kite was only a few parts away from being fully built, Shen Yijia did not insist. She closed her eyes and waited for the food.
When Song Jingchen returned from the forest with a rabbit, she had already fallen asleep.
Song Jingchen felt her forehead again, worried. After confirming that her temperature was normal, he felt relieved.
He also realized that this girl’s appetite had indeed grown a lot in the past two days.
Outside Meng Wu’s tent, Liu Jinbao had been extremely worried since Song Jinghuan entered Meng Wu’s tent. Seeing her come out, he opened his mouth to ask General Meng if he was angry, but before he could say a word, he was grabbed by the other party.
Liu Jinbao blushed and stammered.
“Let’s go back first.” Song Jinghuan pulled him away as if she was escaping. She didn’t notice that something was wrong with Liu Jinbao.
The deputy general looked in the direction the two of them had left with a strange expression. He had been standing outside the tent just now and did not hear the general berating anyone at all. Then what was with Song Huan’s terrified expression?
As he was thinking, Meng Wu’s voice came from the tent.
“Deputy General Chen.”
Deputy General Chen quickly lifted the curtain and entered.
Meng Wu knocked on the desk and instructed with a dark expression, “Investigate this Song Huan.” He paused and added, “Investigate his relationship with the Duke’s Residence in the capital.”
Deputy General Chen was stunned. Although he didn’t understand why Song Huan was related to the Bulwark Duke’s residence, he still agreed respectfully.
On the other side, Song Jinghuan pulled Liu Jinbao and ran far away. Unexpectedly, before she could heave a sigh of relief, she met the three siblings of the Meng family.
Meng Linlang snorted angrily. “How unlucky.”
“That’s right.” Song Jinghuan rolled her eyes. She should’ve gotten a horoscope reading before going outside today..
