Chapter 1153 Serve?
As for Liu Furong, his children and wife were staying with the Ling family so he must stand by the Ling family and protect Lingtian. If the other four people went astray, Liu Furong and the loyal Lin Zhong-qing would also be enough to salvage the situation.
The people she left behind were carefully chosen. They checked and balanced each other out. With their presence, Lingtian would be safe.
Luo Lang, Xie Yi, and Gu Dongyang nodded and went into deep thought after hearing Ling Lan’s reply. Li Yingjie, on the other hand, was frustrated. ‘Wait and see… does this mean we have to put up with everything?’
At that moment, an optical supercomputer in the living room blinked.
Li Yingjie was the closest to it so he pressed the connect button and a beautiful female soldier wearing the military uniform appeared on the screen.
When the lady saw Li Yingjie, she smiled sweetly. “Hello, lieutenant colonel. There are two colonels who want to visit you.”
The image on the screen changed, showing two young colonels. They were Tang Ningyu and Mu Chaoran.
Li Yingjie raised his eyebrows in surprise. He didn’t recognise these two people.
The colonel with a cold aura sensed Li Yingjie’s confusion so he explained, “We’re here to look for Regiment Commander Ling.”
Li Yingjie looked at his regiment commander and waited for her answer.
Ling Lan looked towards the screen curiously when she heard the voice. She frowned when she saw the two figures. Why were they looking for her? She had explained herself clearly in the past. There were no loopholes in her disguise.
However, since they came to find her, she couldn’t chase them away. She nodded at Li Yingjie.
Li Yingjie turned and said, “Our regiment commander invites you in.”
Soon, there was a ‘click’ sound at the door. Li Yingjie rushed out and opened the door.
When the door opened, it revealed Tang Ningyu and Mu Chaoran standing at attention. Li Yingjie moved aside and motioned with his arm. “Please come in.”
Tang Ningyu and Mu Chaoran nodded at Li Yingjie. This was the first time they saw Li Yingjie. They were quite surprised to see someone so young to be only one rank lower than them. They entered the living room and saw Ling Lan waiting for them on the sofa. She was a major general now. The two young people standing behind her, Xie Yi and Luo Lang were lieutenant colonels. Tang Ningyu and Mu Chaoran were stunned.
They exchanged glances. Then, they calmed themselves.
As expected of a soldier whose name was known throughout the galaxy. None of his subordinates were weak. They remembered the young officers at Base 013 during the battle on Planet Haijiao. There were many powerful people under Prince Ling.
Soon, their attention was attracted by Gu Dongyang who was sitting on the sofa at the right side of Ling Lan. He was a senior colonel, and there was a strong killing intent exuding from him. He must be an experienced soldier. When they walked in, he glanced at them. That single glance was enough to make them restless. If they didn’t control themselves, they might have activated their domain uncontrollably under the threat of his aura.
“Have a seat.” As a major general, Ling Lan didn’t need to be polite with them.
This was the attitude of a superior. In the past, when they were at the same rank, they were courteous to each other. Now, Ling Lan was able to look down on them.
The two of them suddenly felt a strong pressure on her shoulders. They were high-ranking officers from the Flying Dragon Special Forces, but they didn’t dare to be disrespectful to a major general. They saluted and sat down.
Gu Dongyang noticed that their attitude was good so he retracted his killing intent. He looked like a normal person now.
Tang Ningyu and Mu Chaoran looked at each other again. Their arrogance as a member of the Flying Dragon Special Forces had disappeared by now.
When Gu Dongyang knew that the two people who came were the leaders of the new generation in the Flying Dragon Special Forces, he decided to give them an opening gambit so that they wouldn’t be impolite to his regiment commander.
“Time flies. It has been almost eight months since the battle on Planet Haijiao.” Ling Lan signaled for Li Yingjie to pour some tea.
Li Yingjie looked around him but saw no one he could order. He gritted his teeth and went off.
F**k, the other three people had a higher position than him in Lingtian! Based on their rules, he should be the one serving tea.
Li Yingjie took out four teacups. He forcefully placed a teacup in front of Mu Chaoran and Tang Ningyu. Then, he lightly placed a cup in front of Gu Dongyang. As for the last teacup, he handed it over respectfully to Ling Lan with both hands.
The three different actions represented his attitude. As for Luo Lang and Xie Yi… they can get their own cups. I’m not serving them.
Ling Lan took the teacup and had a sip. She placed the teacup on the coffee table before asking, “Why did you two come to find me?”
Mu Chaoran answered respectfully, “Actually, I came because of some personal matter. Please forgive me.”
He looked up and stared at Ling Lan. He continued sincerely, “The previous time we interacted, I saw my friend’s pet, Little White, coincidentally became your pet. I’ve been missing it so I came to find out how it has been. I hope that you can tell me about its current condition.”
“Little White?” Ling Lan raised one of her eyebrows in doubt. “Why don’t I know that I have a pet called Little White?”
The other four people from Lingtian couldn’t help but thought, ‘If Little White knew that Ling Lan doesn’t acknowledge it, it would definitely cry. Fortunately, Little Four ate too much and is sleeping in the warehouse of the logistics department. If not, it might throw a tantrum.”
Mu Chaoran smiled. “Of course. Little White is probably with Li Lanfeng now.”
Although the soldiers from Lingtian had a tight mouth, Mu Chaoran still managed to find out that Little White was thrown to Li Lanfeng after Major General Ling went back.
“Oh, that small little thing.” Ling Lan appeared enlightened.
“It kept following me so I picked it up,” she replied calmly.
Mu Chaoran got excited. “How is it?”
“Lingtian is still able to feed it. Leader Li has been raising it well,” Ling Lan answered.
Actually, when she was saying this, Ling Lan felt guilty. Little White had a huge appetite. She had some difficulty trying to feed it. In the end, Little White had to go outside to fill up its stomach. Before they went to Base Nebula, Little White started sleeping. Fortunately, she sensed that it was still very much alive.
Ling Lan knew that once Little White woke up, it would become more powerful. Sometimes, Ling Lan was jealous of Little White. It just needed to eat and sleep and it would become more powerful. What a comfortable life! She was so jealous of it.
