Chapter 34 – What do you want to do?

In the cemetery, in the woods on the other side.



Wu Xiangnan, who was crawling on the ground, trembled and turned his head violently, relieved when he saw the person.

“Captain, it’s late at night, don’t walk silently in the cemetery. You almost scared me to death.” Wu Xiangnan touched his pounding heart and took a deep breath.

Chen Muye quietly sat down beside Wu Xiangnan and looked at Hong Ying, who was carving a stele not far away. He whispered:

“I thought your wooden head only contained tactics, I didn’t expect you to come too.”

Wu Xiangnan gave him a look, “It’s late at night, who believes she would go to practice shooting? Am I that dull?”


Wu Xiangnan:……

“What about Qi Mo? He should be here, right?”

“He’s lying on the opposite mountain ditch with Lin Qiye.”

“What about Leng Xuan and Xiao Nan?”

“Leng Xuan has long gone somewhere, Xiao Nan is afraid of the dark and dare not come.”


The two men fell into silence.

After a long time, Chen Muye spoke again:

“I’m glad you came.”

“…Is it necessary?”

“Yes.” Chen Muye nodded seriously, “This shows that you are no longer the Wu Xiangnan who just crawled out of a pile of dead bodies. Even if you deny it, you… have changed.”

“Why should I deny it?” Wu Xiangnan calmly said, “It has been almost six years since the ‘Blue Rain’ team was annihilated. As a useless person like me, I have to come out. It’s lucky for me to meet you guys.”

Chen Muye sighed, “In their eyes, you are just a rigid man who only cares about rules and regulations. Last time when I eavesdropped on Hong Ying and Xiao Nan in the corner, they even said that you would never find a wife in your lifetime.”


“If they knew that you were once a member of the famous ‘Blue Rain’ special team, they would be shocked.”

“I’m just a useless person who survived, I’m not worthy of carrying that name anymore.” Wu Xiangnan said calmly, “Now, I just want to be an ordinary member of the 136th team.”

Chen Muye patted Wu Xiangnan’s shoulder without saying a word.

“What do you think?” Wu Xiangnan suddenly asked.


“That new guy, Lin Qiye.”

“He’s a good kid.”

“I’m not talking about his potential, I’m talking about his personality.”

“I’m talking about his personality too.”

Wu Xiangnan paused and continued, “He killed the Ghost-Faced King. If I’m not mistaken, Zhao Kongcheng only severely injured it but didn’t kill it.”

“Is that important?”

“Isn’t it important?”

Chen Muye looked into Wu Xiangnan’s eyes and slowly said, “The kid is willing to give credit to Zhao Kongcheng. That’s his choice. Why are you so persistent? You’ve been with Lao Zhao for so long, don’t you know what his dream is?”

“Killing a ‘Chuan’ realm mystery, that’s a great achievement! It will be very helpful for that kid’s future!”

“Do you think he cares about these things?”

Wu Xiangnan was speechless.

Chen Muye shifted his gaze away from Hong Ying and looked into the distant mountain ditch, calmly saying:

“I said, this kid is good.”

At this moment.

Dozens of miles away from the cemetery.

Leng Xuan, who was squatting quietly on the top of the mountain, put down his binoculars and smiled slightly:

“One by one, they have no skills in hiding. I caught them again this time…”

Click, click!

Leng Xuan’s binoculars made a few soft sounds, and several high-definition photos fell out from below. There were photos of Hong Ying carving the stele alone, Lin Qiye and Wen Qiyi chatting, and two men fooling around in the woods…

He carefully picked up these photos, treasuring them, and put them into a locked box.

The box was filled with photos.

Funny, embarrassing, yet heartwarming photos that belonged to the 136th team.

Two hours later.

Lin Qiye stood in front of a luxurious villa, dumbfounded.

He lowered his head, double-checked the address on the note, and looked at the villa again, taking a deep breath!

“So she’s a rich woman!”

If Lin Qiye wasn’t mistaken, the one in front of him was Hong Ying’s home.

Vaguely, the words she said echoed in Lin Qiye’s mind again: “My house is quite big…”

This is more than just quite big!

Lin Qiye hesitated at the door of the villa for a long time, finally made up his mind, and walked forward to knock on the door.Before, he and Wen Qimo had silently watched Hong Ying carve the tombstone in the cemetery. They didn’t leave until she finished. To avoid arousing Hong Ying’s suspicion, he deliberately arrived half an hour late, creating a time difference.

He only knocked on the door twice before Lin Qiye withdrew his hand.

The sound of shuffling slippers faintly came from behind the door, followed by the villa’s front door being opened.

Behind the door, Hong Ying, dressed in a fluffy pajama, stood there with slightly red eyes. A smile appeared on her face when she saw Lin Qiye.

“Brother Qiye, come in quickly. Why are you back so late?”

“Wen Qimo kept me talking until now,” Lin Qiye lied.

Entering the house, Lin Qiye looked down and noticed that Hong Ying had already prepared a pair of slippers for him.

“Um… I didn’t clean the house today, so it might be a bit messy. I hope you don’t mind,” Hong Ying said, twirling a strand of hair around her finger, looking somewhat embarrassed.

“This is already very clean,” Lin Qiye said, looking around helplessly. “Besides, as long as I have a place to stay, I’m already very happy.”

It must be said that Hong Ying’s home, whether in terms of decoration or furnishings, exuded an air of elegance and grandeur, which made Lin Qiye, who had never lived in a villa before, feel a bit restrained.

Moreover… he had never stayed overnight at a girl’s house before.

“Sister Hong Ying, is Qiye here?”

A soft voice came from the second floor. Si Xiaonan, still sleepy, was leaning on the railing, asking in a low voice.

“Yes,” Hong Ying nodded.

Lin Qiye was taken aback and turned to look at Hong Ying.

Hong Ying smiled at him, “Because I usually don’t stay in the dormitory, and I’m not comfortable with Xiaonan staying there alone, so I let her live here with me.”

So that’s how it was…

Just then, Lin Qiye seemed to think of something, “What about your parents? Will I disturb them by moving in like this?”

“No,” Hong Ying shook her head. “They disappeared in the mist five years ago. Before Xiaonan came, I lived here alone.”

“Were they part of the exploration team?”


Lin Qiye opened his mouth, knowing he had asked the wrong question, but he didn’t know what to say to comfort her.

Just then, Hong Ying pointed to a room on the second floor.

“You can stay in that room. I’ve already cleaned it up. The blue towel and toothbrush in the bathroom are yours. Don’t mix them up!” Hong Ying, wearing her slippers, slowly walked up the stairs.

Then, as if she had thought of something, she suddenly turned her head to look at Lin Qiye.

“Also, if you want to enter Xiaonan’s and my room, you have to knock first! If I find out you have any ill intentions… Humph!”

Hong Ying rolled up her pajama sleeve, revealing a fair arm, and waved it menacingly.

“Don’t forget, I’m the main combat force of the team. No one can beat me except the captain!

My spear doesn’t discriminate!”

After saying that, she turned around gracefully, her long black hair naturally curling, and strode into her room.

Lin Qiye: …

Si Xiaonan, who was hanging around, yawned and waved at Lin Qiye, “Good night.”


The two doors closed, and the corridor fell silent again.

Suddenly, Lin Qiye thought of something and quickly walked to Hong Ying’s door, knocking a few times.


The door slowly opened, and Hong Ying, holding her spear, stood behind the door with a displeased expression, lifting her chin.

“What do you want?”
