It was only one sentence but the meaning it carried was telling.
Qin Yirou understood it immediately once she heard Snow Eagle and told him in realization, “Ah, okay, okay. I understand.”
She had even let a chortle escape as she answered.
“Actually, I don’t have to trouble you…” Si Luo told Snow Eagle, still a little afraid of him.
Speaking of which, she recalled how Snow Eagle disagreed for no reason when she had wanted to stay with Qing You previously, so she turned to Yun Jian and asked her, “Can I stay at your place?”
Si Luo had no idea that Yun Jian did not stay in Ge Junjian and Qin Yirou’s house now. She only knew that Yun Jian had the biggest say here.
The last time, she was dragged away by Snow Eagle before she got to ask for help. She did not want to stay with the man any longer because he was terrifying, especially with that scar around his neck…
“You can ask him. I have no objection if he agrees,” Yun Jian told Si Luo with a smirk as she gestured at Snow Eagle. “Huh…” If Snow Eagle agreed? That would be like she never asked. Si Luo paused. She was a girl. Why could she not stay with Qing You? Si Luo did not understand.
“Forget it!” As expected, Snow Eagle squashed Si Luo’s hope immediately.
The reunion dinner went on happily. Si Luo was the only one pouting but she had still enjoyed it with delight.
Halfway through the meal, Ge Junjian told Yun Jian, “Get yourself ready. You’ll have to pack up and report to the military school two days later.”
Yun Jian looked up at what Ge Junjian said but the latter continued explaining, “Senior high freshmen of the military schools don’t start at the same time as regular senior high schools. Freshmen from regular high schools usually report to school a week in advance and would be done with a week of military training.”
“But military training for military schools lasts for a month. That’s why you’ll have to report to school by beginning of August. The following one month’s time will be your military training and you guys start classes like regular high schools in September.”
Ge Junjian told Yun Jian in detail. After that, he turned to tell Si Yi, “A-Yi, since you’ve enrolled in the military school as well but you’re a high school senior according to your age, seniors don’t have to attend military training.”
“The military school is a closed-off type of school, which means that you can’t visit her during the one month of military training.” They would still have to go through these things following the military school rules.
Even when Si Yi’s status was unlike others, Ge Junjian meant for Si Yi to withstand it-not meeting Yun Jian for a month-when he said it out loud.
“Sure,” Si Yi agreed easily.
He had agreed directly because who could stop him from visiting Xiao Jian if he wanted to? What Ge Junjian meant was that he could not meet Xiao Jian openly; who could stop them if they were to meet in secret?
“Mn, I know.” Yun Jian nodded as well.
She was slowly improving her skill in practical battles but she knew that she was not strong enough. She had not yet reached her ability in her past life, although she was not far from it.
Yun Jian was not going to let any chance that she could use to enhance her skill slip. Military training might sound like hell to others but it was godsend to her.
Dinner ended soon. Qin Yirou cleaned up the table swiftly with Si Luo helping her. It must be mentioned that the girl was attentive and meticulous.
After the meal, all of them went back. The tea party would be held three days later, so Yun Jian planned to depart the next morning.
That night, Snow Eagle dragged Si Luo back to where he stayed with a glower. Once they stepped inside, Si Luo flinched in fright; she opened her mouth before mustering her voice, “You… You can’t be like this. I don’t want to stay with you. I—”
