Yun Jian had vowed so because since her rebirth, Qin Yirou had become the most important person to her. She could never do anything that would harm the woman as she had long taken her as her own mother.
In her previous life, Yun Jian was abducted at the age of five. Fending for herself all the way to the age of 16, she had never experienced a mother’s embrace. It was said that a mother’s love was the greatest and most selfless, but it was a pity that she had never felt it.
Since her rebirth, however, she got a taste of a mother’s love, through Qin Yirou’s concern and care. Even when the latter had never told her something direct such as “I love you, baby”, her love and concern showed through her daily actions.
Yun Jian was a secret agent in her past life, even killing her closest friends to stay alive, but she was not someone heartless. She saw Qin Yirou, Yun Yi, and Yun Zhu as equals—they were her most beloved family and the only people who mattered to her currently.
It came as a surprise that Si Yi had taken her vow seriously. Despite that, it was undeniable that his words elicited a stream of warmth within Yun Jian.
“Don’t make things up.” Yun Jian pulled her hand out from Si Yi’s grip with a flushed face.
Wearing a blush, Yun Jian looked back at Ge Junjian and told him, “Officer Ge, I hope you can continue to take care of me in the military in the future. I’m just Yun Jian. I hope you don’t treat me any different from the members in Team Monarch.”
Yun Jian did not want to be treated differently now that Ge Junjian found out about her identity. She had enlisted in the military to further hone her skills, not for preferential treatment after her identity was discovered.
Ge Junjian felt secondhand embarrassment from watching Si Yi just now, but he was experienced and thus could take more mentally. Acting as nothing had happened, he nodded at Yun Jian. “Mm, don’t worry about it. Even if you’re god itself, I’ll train you according to the military rules.”
Ge Junjian spoke seriously. He had never said things he did not mean. To the man, Yun Jian would have to go through military training like the other members when she joined his team even when she was Slaying God. There was no exception. This was Ge Junjian’s principle.
“Mm.” Yun Jian gave a slight nod in return. Her supple cheeks looked red like a big juicy apple.
Feeling Si Yi’s murderous gaze, the corners of Ge Junjian’s lips twitched. “I’ll be heading out then, Yun Jian,” he said swiftly as he felt like a huge unmistakable third wheel here and was unsettled by the thought.
“Mm.” Obviously having no idea why Ge Junjian was leaving the base first, Yun Jian nodded again and watched the man leave through the north door of the headquarters.
Outside, An Hun Group’s members had left while everyone in Inferno Ring was annihilated. What remained now of the organization were its lingering members left out there in the world—Ya Dang and Mo Sen were already making their way to wipe these remaining forces out with Snake.Lizard and others now.
“Let’s head out too,” Yun Jian turned to tell Si Yi after looking around and seeing no one aside from scattered corpses.
Just as she turned, however, she felt a sense of warmth coming toward her. In a blink of eyes, Si Yi had enveloped her in his embrace.
“Xiao Jian...” This is Si Yi’s first time calling Yun Jian by her nickname that Qin Yirou and others had usually used but it sounded completely different to the girl when it came from him.
