In the study, the bookcase occupying one wall was full of books, and there was a display shelf next to it, which displayed the Medals of Honor he had received from the military over the years-Marshal Luo Sen assisted His Majesty in pacifying the military rebellion in those years, and now the empire was stable and prosperous. It could be said that he was the biggest hero, and even His Majesty should respect him three points.
As soon as he entered the study, the marshal closed the door, turned around calmly and asked, “Do you really like Luo Ning?”
Qin Yize did not hesitate: “I really like him…”
Marshal Luo Sen interrupted him simply: “You don’t like Luo Ning at all, and Luo Ning also doesn’t like you. From entering the door to now, you and Luo Ning have not had any physical contact. And you keep a certain distance, there is no tacit understanding at all!”
Qin Yize: “…” The marshal was so keen, he couldn’t even hide such a small detail from him.
Luo Sen’s eyes on Qin Yize suddenly became extremely sharp: “Tell me the truth, what is your purpose for marrying Luo Ning?”
He obviously saw through the two of them long ago, while Qin Yize could only maintain his composure, and reluctantly explain: “My feelings for Luo Ning are really not that deep, but the feelings can be cultivated slowly. Luo Ning hates meeting other Alphas, but I have a lot of common language with him. It’s also very comfortable. Since we are bound to get married, we are the best choice for each other.”
Luo Sen frowned slightly and asked, “Have you brought your marriage certificate? Show me.”
Qin Yize had prepared it for a long time. The certificate was respectfully handed to him.
Luo Sen opened the certificate and looked at the two smiling faces in the photo. After a moment of silence, he whispered: “Since you have already received the certificate, it is too late to say whether you like each other or not. As an elder, I will give a piece of advice to you- a marriage certificate is not just a piece of paper, but also represents commitment and responsibility. I hope you can really understand the meaning of this certificate.”
Qin Yize nodded seriously: “I promise, after we get married, we will definitely get along well and cherish this fate.”
He said this, but Qin Yize actually felt very guilty in front of the Marshal – he had heard that the Marshal had mistakenly thought that General Ling Yu had passed away, so he erected a monument to Ling Yu at home, and guarded the tomb for eighteen years. Having identified General Ling Yu, the marshal would no longer hold others in his heart, even if he was guarding his grave, he would not look at others too much!
Compared with such perseverance and affection, he and Luo Ning acting in front of the two generals, it was really like a child playing house, and it was not even good enough to watch. The marshal might have seen long ago that there was no love between them, but he just didn’t expose it directly in front of Luo Ning, saving some face for his grandson.
Luo Sen closed the marriage certificate, handed it to Qin Yize, and said, “Keep the certificate well, it will be used in the future divorce.”
Qin Yize: “…”
This sentence was really sharp, was the marshal convinced that they would get divorced in the future?
Luo Sen said solemnly: “A marriage without love can’t last. I don’t approve of your marriage with Luo Ning. After marriage, you can do it for yourself, but you don’t need to act here in the future. Real love cannot be pretended.”
Qin Yize stiffly took the marriage certificate from him, thinking to himself, is this hurdle passed or not?
In the living room, Luo Ning was playing Go with General Ling Yu. Seeing Qin Yize coming over, Luo Ning immediately smiled and said, “Grandpa, I can’t beat you, why don’t you let Yize accompany you for two rounds?” He threw the hot potato to Qin Yize.
Ling Yu raised his eyes and looked at Qin Yize: “You know how to play Go?”
Qin Yize had no choice but to take the hot potato and bite the bullet: “I know a little bit, it’s just average.”
Ling Yu said, “Come and play a few games with me.”
Qin Yize sat in Luo Ning’s seat, picked up the white stones, and Ling Yu held the black ones.
As soon as the game started, Ling Yu pressed hard, leaving Qin Yize no way out. In a blink of an eye, the white stones on the chessboard were surrounded by black stones. Watching General Ling Yu calmly eat up a large number of his white stones, Qin Yize was sweating coldly on his forehead, and his fingers holding the pieces could not help stiffening.
Ling Yu looked up at him and said lightly: “You have to be calm when you play Go, you can’t completely calm down.” This sentence meant something, but Qin Yize didn’t know how to answer, so he could only force it. He continued to play the game with his scalp tightening- the result was that he lost five games in a row and was completely killed.
Ling Yu put down his chess pieces with little interest, and said, “No.”
Marshal Luo Sen, who had always been serious, suddenly said, “I’ll accompany you.”
Ling Yu raised his eyebrows and looked at him: “Do you think you can beat me? “
“We wouldn’t know until we play. My Go skills have improved a lot recently.” Luo Sen smiled and turned to sit opposite Ling Yu.
“Really? Then you play two games with me.” Ling Yu picked up the black chess piece, changed it with Luo Sen’s white chess piece, and turned back to Luo Ning and Qin Yize and said, “You should also learn a little bit.”
The two had to obediently stand by and watch the battle.
The marshal held the black chess piece and placed the chess piece in the middle of the chessboard, but his eyes fell on the lover in front of him. At that moment, the gentle look in the marshal’s eyes was completely different from the seriousness when he faced Qin Yize just now.
General Ling Yu stared at the chessboard seriously. Obviously, he had to be very focused when playing against the Marshal.
The two made moves on the chessboard at a very fast speed, and Ling Yu pressed hard step by step. The marshal kept giving in at first, but then he suddenly counterattacked in an all-round way, killing Ling Yu by surprise and making him lose a large area of territory. But Ling Yu did not admit defeat, and soon found a way out from the side, surrounded by detours.
A simple game of Go had become as fierce as a marching battle, which made Qin Yize and Luo Ning tremble with fear.
Qin Yize thought that the marshal would let his own Omega win. Unexpectedly, in the end, the marshal actually won against Ling Yu very rudely, and asked with a smile: “How is it? I’m progressing very fast, right?”
Ling Yu refused: “Come again!”
In the second round, Ling Yu really won back very sharply. The marshal looked at his proud face, and the corner of his lips couldn’t help but raise a gentle smile.
The dignified imperial marshal had such a gentle gaze when facing his lover.
Qin Yize was completely shocked.
——Don’t need to act here, real love cannot be pretended.
Qin Yize suddenly remembered what the marshal had just said.
It turned out that true love was like this. The Marshal looked at General Ling Yu with such affectionate eyes that he didn’t need to say, “I like Ling Yu so much”, because his love had long been engraved in his bones. Just a simple action and a look could make people feel the unparalleled tacit understanding between the two.
And he and Luo Ning obviously didn’t have love, but they pretended to be very affectionate. No wonder the marshal saw through it at a glance.
General Ling Yu asked them to learn a little bit. Did this mean that they should learn to play Go, or how to love each other as husband and wife?

Go is played on a grid of black lines (usually 19×19). Game pieces, called stones, are played on the lines’ intersections. The playing pieces are called stones. One player uses the white stones and the other, black.
