“Dong dong dong.” The sound of footsteps came from far to near.

Qi Yue opened the office door and after making sure there was someone in the room, he strode in. “You are finally back. This is the plan for next week’s field exercise. Please take a look first to see if there are any flaws.”

Shen Chengfeng flipped through two pages, and finally stopped his gaze on the page of information written on Xiao Jing.

Qi Yue followed his gaze and joked, “According to past rules, the last person in this field exercise will be eliminated directly.”

“Yes.” Qi Yue smiled, “I’m really looking forward to it. I’m looking forward to this captaincy. Will you show mercy to Xiao Jing again?”

“Bang!” Shen Chengfeng closed the battle plan and looked at Qi Yue with blazing eyes.

Qi Yue coughed lightly and continued: “This time I specially selected five special team elites. I thought the drills in a few days will be exciting.”

“Act according to the implementation of your plan, I will go abroad in a few days.”

Qi Yue frowned, “Got a mission?”

Shen Chengfeng nodded, tapping his fingertips lightly on the table, “Remember, what we want are talents.”

“Captain, don’t worry, I am known for my uprightness and selflessness. When you come back, I will give you the most perfect report card.”

After leaving the office, Qi Yue walked down the corridor humming a ditty.

Shen Chengfeng once again opened the compiled roster of recruits, and his narrow eyes fell on Xiao Jing’s fair and clean photo.

“This is your last chance.”

You could hear a needle drop in the empty office.

Xiao Jing lay back on the bed, tossing and turning, unable to fall asleep. She groped for the edge of the bed, sat up, and turned on the small desk lamp.

She took out the photo she had placed under her pillow. The photo was a bit old. It showed Marshal Xiao Yao, her father, wearing a military uniform with a serious look on his face.

She had seen her father only a handful of times since she was a child. It seemed that in her memory he had always been in the army and only came home once a year.

Her mother had made her carry a photo of her father close to her body since she was a child, probably because she was afraid that one day she would suddenly forget what her father looked like.

The man in the photo had resolute features, sharp eyebrows and starry eyes, and he looked dignified and upright.

“Father, is this the responsibility you keep talking about? As long as the country needs me, no matter who I am or where I am, I will shoulder my bayonet and speak out to the outside world without hesitation!” No one in the quiet room responded.

Xiao Jing stood up, looked at the photo in a military posture with her head held high, raised her hands, and saluted: “I remember that if I wear the military uniform for a day, I will have no regrets for the country and the people even if I die!”

The hand prepared to knock on the door suddenly stopped. Under the dim reflection of the moonlight, the man did not say a word, but his slightly raised corners of the mouth could be vaguely seen, as if he was smiling.

The next day, the sun shone scorchingly in the middle of the playground.

Sweat fell from everyone’s face, Qi Yue walked slowly in front of everyone, as if he was examining everyone.

Mu Xichi stood aside with a smile on his face. He was looking forward to this field exercise.

“The captain has entrusted you to me for some time. It’s time to test whether you have made any progress during this period.” Qi Yue said.

Xiao Jing’s heart skipped a beat. This obviously meant to tell them that they were going to play a game of house next. Well, it was very likely that they would bleed, get injured, become lame or something.

Haha, you can’t die anyway.

“It seems that everyone already knows what’s going on.” Qi Yue looked at everyone one by one and continued, “This is a personal battle. In addition to completing your own tasks, you must also be careful to guard against the elite team members I have arranged for you.”

Mu Xichi took a step forward and said in a majestic voice, “We promise to complete the mission.”

Everyone looked at each other. Wasn’t this a deliberate bug for them?

Not only must they successfully complete the tasks assigned by the instructors, but they must also beware of sneak attacks by the special forces. Was this clearly trying to embarrass these budding little flowers?

“You have no objections. If not, I will start to give each of you a task list. Remember, if you die in the drill or fail to complete the task, it is a failure. After the results are compiled this time, the last person will leave immediately.” Qi Yue handed out the task sheets one by one.

Xiao Jing opened her task list with a solemn expression: wipe out all the kidnappers in Area A.

She looked at the attached map and was dumbfounded. Wasn’t this the Selin Mountains where the captain took her to train last time?

“Do you need me to team up with you?” Lin Qi saw Xiao Jing’s serious face and subconsciously looked at the mission he was holding in his hands.

Xiao Jing shook her head, “This is a personal battle, I don’t want to drag you down.”

“We are comrades in arms.”

“Then you should believe in your comrades, I’m not a weakling!” Xiao Jing picked up the gun and stuffed the bullets into the magazine one by one, her eyes firm and profound.
