Chapter 377: She Couldn’t Bear To
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Gu Qingjiu practiced until seven p.m. and headed to the canteen for dinner right afterward. After that, she returned to her dormitory.
Since she had lessons for the day, she didn’t bring her phone along, so she had no idea if the Chief Instructor had called her or sent her text messages.
Or perhaps Gu Qingjiu had now grown accustomed to looking forward to hearing from He Niancheng in any form at all.
She pushed open the dormitory door and saw that it was quiet inside, with Gu Qian and Chu Lian not around.
She didn’t have the time to ponder over where the duo had gone off to. Gu Qingjiu picked up her phone from inside her jacket pocket hanging outside her closet and took a look.
Although the school didn’t openly forbid its students from bringing their phones, there would be instructors who would come to the dormitory during the day to inspect the cleanliness.
Once these electronic gadgets were discovered in places where they shouldn’t be in, they would be confiscated with no exceptions.
Hence, most students would place such items among their private belongings.
Indeed, there was a text message
Gu Qingjiu revealed a happy expression, and she quickly opened the text message.
< Qingjiu, you were very serious in class today. Hehe. >
Without even needing to look at who the sender was, just by looking at the contents of the text she knew that it must be from Huo Yingcheng.
Gu Qingjiu’s face fell.
It wasn’t that she had an opinion of Huo Yingcheng or something.
It was just that she was disappointed after getting her hopes up.
She replied with a pouting emoticon perfunctorily. If Huo Yingcheng could see her expression right now…
He would likely howl at her.
With sweat all over her body, Gu Qingjiu entered the bathroom to take a shower.
She then washed the clothes she had just removed amidst the cooling night breeze on the balcony.
Since the weather was hot, they had to change their military uniform nearly every day.
The school was rather generous though, to give them three sets each.
So that they didn’t run out of uniform to change into while one set was being washed.
Hence, one had to wash their clothes diligently.
This was torture for lazy students.
But having entered the school for so long, no matter how lazy the student was, most of them had already been more or less brainwashed by the school.
Gu Qian was one such example.
According to her, she had never even washed socks before she entered military school. After entering though, she was forced to become an all-rounder.
And she didn’t have any complaints about it!
While Gu Qingjiu was washing her clothes, her phone suddenly started ringing.
As though something had snapped in her brain, she briskly jogged to her bed and picked it up. It was He Niancheng.
Suppressing the excitement in her heart, Gu Qingjiu responded in a calm voice.
“Were you waiting for my call?”
There was a smile in He Niancheng’s voice. Gu Qingjiu’s face flushed instantly, despite the fact that He Niancheng couldn’t see that.
“No, I was washing my clothes!”
She replied in an indignant tone.
There was a teasing manner in his deep voice. The embarrassed Gu Qingjiu got annoyed. “Chief Instructor, you’re making fun of me.”
Clearly, the Chief Instructor used to appear so cold and aloof, and he didn’t even smile at all.
How did he suddenly become a little evil now?
She suddenly missed the Chief Instructor of that time.
“No, hurry up and come over. If you don’t come over today, you won’t get to see me in the following month.”
Upon hearing this, Gu Qingjiu got anxious. “Why?”
“Come over and I’ll tell you.”
His voice was gentle, and he was urging Gu Qingjiu in an unflustered manner.
Gu Qingjiu felt as though her heart had tightened into a bunch. She hung up the phone and set down the clothes. She was prepared to continue washing later when she came back, and she was going to rush over to the Chief Instructor’s office now.
Why wouldn’t she get to see him in the following one month?
Could it be that he had to return to the Empire from time to time like Commander Huo?
But He Niancheng was from the Empire, to begin with. Even if he had to go back from time to time, it wasn’t something to be surprised about.
But she couldn’t bear to handle it.
