Su Ling tightened his grip on the reins. If he insisted on continuing to ride on horse, wasn’t he admitting out loud that he had enjoyed the comfort so much, hence, he was spoilt?! It was nothing. Anyway, it had been a long time since he ran on a march. Jogging was not really that bad. Su Ling let the reins go and joined the march.
Gu Yun secretly laughed and also ran to catch up to the march. Su Ren was dumbfounded for a while. At last, he also let his reins go and jogged together.
The great general was jogging, how could he still ride a horse?!
Mu Yi widened his eyes and gently stroked the back of the horse. He smiled, “It’s okay, I am more suitable with the pampered lifestyle.” Ling didn’t realise that he was being controlled by that lady. Following Su Ling’s example, Su Ren innocently jogged. Mu Yi shook his head. Indeed, the all-men household wasn’t good (complete?).
To the professional elite forces, the 20-mile distance didn’t really count as anything. However, within the last 5 miles, they had entered the forest. Their feet were covered in mud while their bodies were sticky and moist. Arriving at the place Gu Yun designated as a target, the troop arrangement was messed up. However, the five thousand soldiers quickly returned to the formation while still breathing heavily.
Gu Yun secretly adjusted her breath and then walked to Leng Xiao and Liu Xing’s side, who had been waiting beforehand. She asked, “Have you finished preparing ‘that’ thing?”
Liu Xing looked at two big bags on the ground and gulped. He nodded quickly. Leng Xiao calmly added, “They are ready.”
Gu Yun smiled brightly, “Thanks for the hard work. Both of you, go and join the others.”
Gu Yun turned her back and saw the red-clothed Mu Yi looking at the bag. He looked really curious. Gu Yun was wondering. The horse couldn’t enter this dense rainforest so far, hence, he would have traveled on foot for quite a long distance. How come his red attire was very clean and neat, free of mud?! And also, Su Ling who had been running along the way didn’t lose his breath nor did he look tired. Is this so-called neigong* self-healing?! This really made one feel stuffy. Her heart was full of doubt.
However, seeing the eyes that showed firm resolution and willingness to learn in front of her, she quickly refocused her mind. She told the soldiers, “The fact that you can appear in here means that you must have understood the responsibilities you bear. Every one of you was chosen from the Su army to form an elite team. I have absolute belief in your fitness and strength. If you have an open battle with the rebels, you absolutely can defeat and subdue them. However, your biggest obstacle this time is the rainforest and then the rebels.
“The circumstances inside the rainforest are different from its outside. The humidity is high and also very stuffy. Don’t you already feel some shortness of breath?” Gu Yun asked. No one answered. All of their faces showed resolve and no emotion.
Her brows raised. Being a so-called elite was not that good. She prefered people with blood and meat (with emotion). She crossed her arms on over her chest and lightly smiled, “There are only five days left. To be honest, the training contents will not be a lot. Today is the first day, so it won’t be really hard.”
After hearing her words, the new recruits who had been training under her before gasped. We’re doomed! Last time she also smiled and said it wouldn’t be too hard, but the result…
Those elite forces who didn’t understand the real meaning of the words kept calm and remained expressionless. In their hearts, they were unhappy. They’d been picked, chosen, and harshly trained fighters. No matter how tough it was, they won’t even crease their eyebrow.
