After a few pleasantries, Dean Liu turned to leave.
The mystery man turned around and walked towards the ward.
The pace was a little hurried, and his pupils were a little tightened.
He stood at the door and pushed it open without the slightest hesitation.
When the ward door opened, the whole ward was silent.
There was only the slight sound of various instruments.
On the hospital bed, Zhang Yulan and Qin Ye were both unconscious.
The mysterious man walked to the hospital bed, took a look at the heart rate monitor and made sure that there was no major change, then he went to the small table in front of the sofa, flipped it up and down, and finally took out a small package in the crack under the sofa.
The parcel was old, an old-fashioned scented bag, but unrefined, that is, two pieces of blue cloth sewn together.
The mystery man ripped the elastic string from the top a little and took the contents of the parcel out and looked at it.
The light was on.
A wooden token, wrapped in cashmere around the edges, was revealed.
If Chen Dong had seen it, he would have been able to instantly recognise that the token was …… the Hundred Clans Order!
“If this thing falls off, there will be a lot of trouble.”
The mysterious man shook his head, twisted his head to look at Zhang Yulan on the hospital bed, and said in a hoarse voice, “For the sake of you girl, it almost led to a big trouble.”
The mysterious man turned around and walked towards the outside.
The ward door closed again and the ward once again returned to dead silence.
Time, slowly pa*sed by.
About ten minutes had pa*sed.
Zhang Yulan, who was on the hospital bed, suddenly fluttered her eyelashes and opened her eyes violently.
Even though ten minutes had pa*sed, there was still infinite fear in her tear-stained eyes.
Just now she had been completely broken down by the great fear she had suffered, and she simply did not have the heart to care about the outside and worry about the mysterious man going and returning.
If it wasn’t for the sudden sound of Dean Liu’s voice in the corridor outside just now, perhaps at this time she would have been discovered by the mystery man who had hurried back, and the final result …… she didn’t dare to imagine at all.
So even though the mystery man went back and left again, Zhang Yulan did not dare to open her eyes immediately, but waited for ten minutes before reopening them, because she was not sure if the mystery man would return again.
The moment she is like walking a tightrope on a ten-thousand-foot cliff, the slightest carelessness may cause her to fall off the ten-thousand-foot cliff and fall to pieces, never to return.
Fear …… completely engulfed Zhang Yulan like a tidal wave.
A strong sense of suffocation, so that she in the palpitation of fear, red lips slightly open, a large mouth of air, but the lips still gradually turn purple.
Tears, after having been forcibly held back, were now rushing out of her eyes again.
She slowly twisted her head and looked at the unconscious Qin Ye in the next bed, her purple lips trembling as she said, “Qin Ye …… me, what the hell should I …… do?”
Desperation and helplessness, bursting to the top in this short period of time!
If Chen Dong was at home, she might have had the courage to tell Chen Dong about it directly.
But now, because of the Bureau of Heavenly Killing, Chen Dong had already left for the Great Snow Dragon Riders’ army on the northern frontier, which made Zhang Yulan unable to find her main backbone for a while.
Long Lao, Kun Lun and Fan Lu …… are all people she is familiar with, and are also people close to Chen Dong.
But Zhang Yulan knew very well that only Chen Dong could make up his mind on this matter!
The secret is that if you tell them the secret, you will not be able to solve the problem completely, but you may put yourself and the old man in a crisis.
There was a fierce tiger sleeping on the side of her couch.
The only person who wants to drive away the tiger is the owner of the couch!
The sound of trumpets in the early morning broke the silence of the pre-dawn darkness.
Above the schoolyard.
Once again, the crowd was swarming.
The daily early morning drill is the most important part of the Great Snow Dragon Riders’ army, the basis for maintaining the strength of the soldiers of the Great Snow Dragon Riders.
All the formations were different, but without exception, they were all training with fervour.
Chen Dong and Bai Qi walked side by side onto the school field.
Chen Dong raised his eyes and glanced at Meng Dabiao and Sun Kong and Zhou Yao in the training squares where they were.
“Dabiao and the others have completely adapted down.”
Chen Dong smiled slightly, Meng Dabiao, Sun Kong and Zhou Yao’s physique was still considered among the ranks of new recruits in the Great Snow Dragon Rider Army, and even Meng Dabiao’s physique could not reach the point where he could wield the Dragon Rider’s battle sword freely for the time being.
That was why Bai Qi had focused on getting Meng Dabiao’s three men to strengthen their physiques from the very beginning.
Bai Qi nodded: “Of the three, Meng Dabiao should be able to use the Dragon Riding Battle Sword and learn the Dragon Riding Battle Sword blade technique without any problems if he continues his training, while Sun Kong and Zhou Yao both …… have some natural talent that is still lacking.”
Chen Dong understood and did not refute.
The natural talent that Bai Qi is referring to is exactly what Sun Kong and Zhou Yao are physically.
There are many kinds of talent, from the all-rounded to those who are particularly good at a particular area.
Just like a person’s intelligence, a person’s physical qualities actually depend on natural talent.
For those who are gifted, a little hard work is all that is needed to achieve a strong physique.
For those who are not gifted, even if they put in a lot of effort, the rewards are few.
This is where the difference between half-measures and half-measures becomes apparent.
“Sun Kong is good at scouting, Zhou Yao is proficient in weapons, this is already their specialty, physically strong is not enough to use the Dragon Rider Battle Sword, but aren’t there many people within the Great Snow Dragon Rider Army who are unable to use the Dragon Rider Battle Sword?”
Chen Dong rubbed his nose and chuckled lightly.
Bai Qi shook his head and said with a sober gaze, “They are all my own brothers, and I have led them, so of course I want them to become stronger, and to be able to use the Dragon Riding Battle Sword to learn swordsmanship, so they will have an additional skill to save their lives in battle, and have a better chance of surviving.”
Chen Dong smiled noncommittally.
The battlefield was cruel, and in a flash, perhaps the opportunity to kill would come quietly.
Even with the terrifying combat strength of the Great Snow Dragon Riding Army, it would be hard to escape a week or even less to recruit a new one.
Suddenly, a startled voice from Bai Qi rang out in his ears.
Chen Dong raised his eyes and saw Bai Qi frowning in confusion as he looked at a square formation in the schoolyard.
He followed and looked over, it was a square formation dedicated to training fighting techniques.
At this moment, the soldiers were fighting against each other, and the scene was the hottest in the entire school yard.
Compared to the boring training of the other squares, the fighting skill training, that was a real double combat.
Chen Dong asked in confusion.
“Why is he back?”
Bai Qi raised his finger and pointed at the square formation, “Commander Xiao.”
Chen Dong looked into the Fighting Technique Square Formation in astonishment, and quickly searched for the figure of Commander Xiao in the crowd.
At this moment, Commander Xiao was glowing with red, even in the middle of a sparring match, he looked magnificent and his body was steaming hot.
“He’s been out?”
Chen Dong withdrew his gaze and asked Bai Qi.
Bai Qi nodded, “When we were patrolling last night, we saw him escorting a supply convoy out of the city, it would have taken at least three days to complete the mission once he came back and forth.”
Chen Dong’s gaze was deep as he rubbed his nose and let out a soft laugh, “Then when things go wrong, there is a demon.”
Chen Dong’s words instantly caused Bai Qi’s brows to knit together and his eyes to grow a little cold.
Bai Qi said in a deep voice, “But if he is not escorting a supply convoy, what is he going to do?”
“On a mission?”
Chen Dong raised his eyebrows.
“Impossible, there are five hundred military soldiers under the command of the commander level, a commander level mission must be at least five hundred men in size.”
Bai Qi shook his head abruptly and said dryly and decisively, “Escorting a supply convoy is one of the few Commander-level missions that can reach the size of five hundred people, further up or down, the scale and difficulty of the mission cannot match the Commander-level with each other.”
Chen Dong’s eyes were puzzled, and his expression gradually became more and more serious.
Just now, he had said, “There must be a demon when things go wrong”, but he hadn’t expected that this comment would go straight to Bai Qi’s heart.
However, Bai Qi was the former head guard of the Great Snow Dragon Riding Army, and he was familiar with the task arrangements of the Great Snow Dragon Riding Army.
If Commander Xiao had left Zhenjiang City last night, not to escort the supply convoy, then the meaning behind it …… did become somewhat elusive.
“Why don’t we just go over and ask?”
Chen Dong suddenly turned his words around and proposed.
Bai Qi immediately looked at Chen Dong in astonishment: “Crazy?”
Chen Dong shrugged, “Forget about it for now, train, of course it’s impossible to ask directly about this kind of thing, but we can check behind the scenes, ah, no matter what mission was taken, it’s always recorded in the army, right, just one check and it’s all clear.”
Bai Qi’s expression eased a little and he nodded and said in a deep voice, “After the morning drill, I’ll go to the mission office and check.”
“You’re too careful too.”
Chen Dong teased, “It’s not because Commander Xiao is targeting you and you want to take the opportunity to bring him down, right?”
Bai Qi looked solemn and said in a deep voice, “I am at least a man of the highest order, I am not so dirty and nasty as to go to such a level.
Chen Dong smiled, but said no more.
In his heart, he also had doubts about Commander Xiao leaving the city in the middle of the night.
However, he was not as intense as Bai Qi.
Maybe …… there was another reason?
Maybe …… people are just following the caravan to the door.
The actual fact is that you can find a lot of people who are not able to get a good deal on a lot of things.
The hot morning training continued until the sun rose in the sky and covered Zhenjiang City with the sunset, and then it ended.
Chen Dong and Meng Dabiao returned directly to their barracks, while Bai Qi went suspiciously straight to the mission.
“Brother Dong, where did Chief Bai Wu go?” Meng Dabiao did not see Bai Qi’s figure and could not help but ask Chen Dong suspiciously.
“Gone to the mission office.”
Chen Dong said, “On a pinch, I guess we have another scouting patrol out of the city.”
In the Great Snow Dragon Cavalry Army, the higher the official rank, the less likely they were to go on a mission, once they all needed to go on a mission, it would prove that a great war was about to break out for the Great Snow Dragon Cavalry Army.
As the smallest unit of the Great Snow Dragon Riders, the Five Men were like worker ants in an anthill, always on duty, the only difference being that the missions were different, alternating between each other.
Counting the days, it was indeed about time to go out on reconnaissance patrols.
However, Chen Dong did not intend to tell Meng Dabiao and the others about Bai Qi’s suspicion of Commander Xiao.
For one thing, there was no need for a sergeant to be suspicious of the commander, and that was something that the former leader of the guards, Bai Qi, had the guts to do.
The second is that the matter has not been thoroughly implemented to confirm, rashly tell Meng Dabiao and the three of them, many people, in case it leaks out, even if the Commander Xiao is not suspected, but also for Bai Qi to attract a riot.
The mission office.
When Bai Qi arrived with suspicion, the large mission office was already overcrowded.
The various tasks were like snowflakes, sprinkled out and dispersed.
Bai Qi, however, did not pause for a moment and walked straight into the mission office.
After turning around a few alleyways, he entered the back house.
The mission office was manned by a Golden Guard alone!
After all, with countless tasks appearing every day, the mission office was considered to be the hub of Zhenjiang City’s operations, and having a Golden Guard sitting there was more stable.
When Bai Qi walked into the Golden Guard’s office.
When Jin Wei saw Bai Qi, he was not the least bit displeased with Bai Qi for barging in without announcing his actions.
Instead, he said with a smile on his face, “Elder brother Bai has come to see junior brother, what is the matter?”
Of the twelve Golden Guards, the Dragon Head Guard was the most honourable, second only to the Lord Huo Zhenxiao in the 300,000-strong Great Snow Dragon Riding Army.
When Bai Qi was in the position of Dragon Head Guard, the Golden Guards either addressed each other by their first names, or directly respected him as Dragon Head Guard.
The title, Old Brother Bai, was also deliberately modified by the Golden Guards after Bai Qi was jerked off to the end by Huo Zhenxiao, in remembrance of their former friendship.
“Old Luo, please do me a favour.”
Bai Qi didn’t wind up and said directly to the point: “I want to check out, last night, Commander Xiao’s mission.”
Luo Jinwei was in a bit of a bind: “You were once a leading guard, so you know the rules of our Great Snow Dragon Riding Army.
The words were almost euphemistic.
This was purely because of Luo Jinwei’s remembrance of the old days, if it were anyone else, he would have been dealt with according to military law.
A mere military commander spying on the commander without permission was not just overstepping his authority, but committing a crime below.
“I knew it would be difficult, that’s why I came directly to you, and not to those adults outside.”
Bai Qi smiled awkwardly, “In that case, just help me check if Commander Xiao took on the task of escorting the supply convoy last night.”
Luo Jinwei shook his head dryly, “This time, the task of escorting the supply convoy was not under that banner of theirs, it was carried out by troops under another Golden Guard Grand Banner, you know that when we carry out such tasks as escorting supply convoys, we take turns according to the troops under the Golden Guard Grand Banner.”
A single sentence immediately made Bai Qi look grave to the extreme.
If it wasn’t even the turn of the Golden Guard unit that Commander Xiao was in, then Commander Xiao must not have taken the task of escorting the supply convoy out of the city last night.
If it wasn’t this mission, then what was the purpose of Commander Xiao’s trip out of the city last night?
“Old Brother Bai’s sudden investigation of Commander Xiao, what does it mean?”
Luo Jinwei looked at Bai Qi who looked grave, and instantly had a few moments of curiosity, “I do know that a while ago, Elder Brother Bai and Dragon Head Chen even had some friction with Commander Xiao, this matter …… is the intention of Dragon Head Chen?”
“No, it’s my intention.”
Bai Qi shook his head and gave a fist to Luo Jinwei: “Thank you, Lord Jinwei, Bai Qi still has to take up the Five People Wu mission, so I won’t stay much longer.”
Looking at Bai Qi who turned around and left in a hurry, Luo Jinwei was confused, “This old brother Bai, he comes and goes so quickly, so why don’t you give us a message?”
