“Sister Jian, just leave her to me, don’t worry. Heh! I’ll make sure to train her into obedience!” Qing You chuckled and tugged the rope tying Gu Nian’s hands with a smile before leading her away.
Qing You was here to take Gu Nian away. Yun Jian was not planning to kill Gu Nian, she wanted to keep her. Although it sounded risky to keep Gu Nian around, Yun Jian thought that she would be able extract some information from the former. Somehow, she felt that Gu Nian was not as simple as she seemed.
“Master, uh... Can I ask you? Where’s this Yulong Mainland you keep mentioning just now?” Zhang Shaofeng asked after a moment of hesitation.
Yun Jian turned around to squint at Zhang Shaofeng when she heard his question. There was a slight pause before she replied, “Somewhere... very ethereal, like a utopia.”
Yun Jian made up something.
“A utopia huh. I thought that’s something Tao Yuanming made up in his Peach Blossom Spring!” Zhang Shaofeng exclaimed, suddenly recalling a prose he had learned before.
“Maybe,” Yun Jian answered ambiguously.
At the same time, the other students from their class had made their way down from Zhaobao Mountain. Their homeroom teacher, Madam Yu, gathered the students around and took a headcount before ushering them up the bus to return to school.
The spring outing ended with that. To Yun Jian, there was nothing from the outing worthy of reminiscing other than Gu Nian’s appearance.
As for Gu Nian deciding to ambush Yun Jian during the spring outing, there must be a reason behind it. After all, it would be difficult to attack Yun Jian when she was in school; it was just that Gu Nian did not expect Yun Jian to be so skilled.
After the spring outing was ticked off, the students went back to the busy revising stage. It was already April now. Senior High School Entrance Examination was usually two to three weeks—about half a month—earlier than regular exams for other students, commonly held around mid to end of June, but each place had a different time for it.
Longmen City’s Senior High School Entrance Examination was standardized to begin on June 18th and end on 20th.
Counting down, they were left with about two more months for revision from now till the examination. Hence, homeroom teacher Madam Yu turned unusually strict during this period of time as the students entered the tense phase of revising.
Days passed one after another. Qin Yirou and Ge Junjian’s wedding was approaching.
Other than Yun Jian saving Tang Qixuan’s boyfriend in the zoo the last time and the girl coming to her house to thank her with some fruits in the weekend, nothing special happened.
On the military side, Ge Junjian who knew that Yun Jian was about to sit for the Senior High School Entrance Examination did not arrange any mission for her as well. Although it was internally decided that Yun Jian would go to the military high school, the examination was the first major exam in one’s life. It would only fit to do one’s best and score well.
There was still two months to the Senior High School Entrance Examination but the homeroom teacher had asked her class to pull out a piece of paper to write down their choice of school.
It was not yet time to actually fill up the official form for their choice of school but to motivate the students for the examination, the teacher asked them to write one of their own, stating their goals, which school they wanted to enter after the examination, and the score they wanted to achieve.
Yun Jian did not write down any score. She simply wrote Min City’s military school on the paper and submitted it.
 Tao Yuanming was a Chinese poet during the Six Dynasties period. Peach Blossom Spring—depiction of a land hidden from the outside world like a utopia, was one of the works he was known for.
