A Mistaken Marriage 2:Generation of Military Counselors
Chapter 31 Raging Anger Kept Within
GuYun’s roar woke up a lot of officers and men that have gravely closed eyes and sleeping feet. Looking where she stood and seeing General Su Ling’s lofty body standing there watching them, all the soldiers’ faces have expressions of panic and fear the moment they saw them.. They quickly got up from the ground and stood upright. Those men who felt the movement also looked up and saw Su Ling, almost immediately jumped up to stand but swept away by exhaustion.
Yu Shijun was sitting and leaning against a tree to rest. At a distance, he saw Su Ling and Gu Yun’s figure. When he heard the lioness’ roar, he run up to her where she stood and cried,
Excited to see GuYun and Su Ling, Yu Shijun respectfully greeted,” General! “He was a Su Lieutenant and has generally have little opportunity to have a contact with the generals, and for generals to have actually come in this training, meaning he attached great importance to the team.
Su Ling lightly nodded and always carry serious expression , one cannot see if he is happy or angry.
“What are they doing? “
Yu Shijun busy only to observe Su Ling, not paying attention to GuYun whose face cannot be described as gloomy. Truthfully replied, ” Resting. “
Resting? She looked at him with eyes like a cold knife straight to the eyes. Shijun slowly turned to that stare of GuYun with a cold face, his heart trembling and quickly replies,
” Now is not yet weishi(1-3pm modern time)! “
GuYu’s brow wrinkled, “You mean you took the lunch break to arrive here and rest, then at weishi start training? “If they returned to the camp to eat, they can rest in the camp for half an hour, come again to gather, instead of awkwardly looking like a slob on the ground?”
Yu Shijun explained, “They have not returned to the camp for lunch. “
” Why didn’t you eat? ” They have not eaten a good breakfast and lunch they’re not eating too?
“We have been practicing with weapon all morning and soldiers have been too tired to move, because it is lunch time, I did not force them back to camp. Kitchens handed over two basketful of bread and water to eat so they can rest for a while. “Yu Shijun seems to guarantee what was finished in general, then quickly added,
” from morning till night in training time, I absolutely have no mercy on them! “
Maybe they think that time was free time, they can do all they want, including having to eat all they want or not eat at all?! GuYun laugh, “You like steamed bread is it? Very good! “Her lips smiled. Yu Shijun cannot help but only tremble, even Su Ling also feel strange coldness on his back, especially the phrase” very good. “
Looking up at the sky, GuYun cold voice says,“Now weishi to the line! “
“Yes ” Yu Shijun turned and walked to the soldiers that already got up and stood in the middle and cried, “Rank and file! “
Quick and agile more than hundred people lined up to complete the formation, high in spirit like a fowl to catch a blood .With their dusty clothes and hair still clinging with dust, GuYun for a moment have seen fancy patterns of all sorts..
Su Ling was side by side with GuYun and she asked, “Is there a river near here? “
” Five miles north is a river of clear water. “Su Ling’s eagle eyes squinted, secretly watched her face, unfortunately she has calmed the anger and not much expression on her face. He’s trying to figure out what she wants.
“Yu Shijun.” GuYun shouted.
Yu Shijun trotted over. GuYun whispered a few words in his ear, Yu Shijun face appeared a moment of doubt, but soon went back to business as usual and replied,
” I’m ready to go and prepare immediately. “
The morale of the soldiers suddenly went up , GuYun coldly say,
“If you cannot swim, get out of the rank.! “
Dome mountain land was broad, mostly inland, one facing the sea, if one can’t swim it was nothing strange, but none of these elite column cannot swim. GuYun nodded with satisfaction and said,
” Everyone is responsible for weighing 20 kg sandbags, run five miles north of clear water river. “
” Yes. “
Majestic roar shook the birds on the trees in the forest to scurry. GuYun suddenly have some mixed feelings, soldiers tied sandbags on the raised hands, clear voice says,
” Start. “
The procession walked and in a few steps . Behind was GuYun who asked Su Ling ,” Do you want to go or do you want to do your own thing? “
Su Ling did not intend of going to watch it, but could not resist the invitation,” I’m fine this afternoon. I just want to look at how you are training. “
GuYun nodded and suddenly reminded of something, with caution,” Don’t forget you promised me something on the line. “
Training of soldiers, she was in charge and he could not interfere with her. Yu Shijun deferential to her appearance, Su Ling joked, “Are you not in the military prestige? ” One soldier put his hands on practice all morning, have to lie down exhausted means she was not weak.
GuYun gave him a glance and replied, “Far worse than you, I was just a fox. “Su Ling’s position in the army, no one can beat, and she does not intend to undermine his position.
Su Ling did not think she would be so calm and smiled, “You’re not like anyone who has no confidence. “
GuYun generously replied,” I’m confident but not conceited, let’s go . “
Two people walking side by side outside on the training field, Su Ling pulled on a black horse, turning on the horse, GuYun held out her hand. The afternoon sun is still very bright, the sun is down just overhead . GuYun looked up, her eyes almost blinded by the glare. She can’t see his handsome face in the sun but only saw a big hand in front of her. In the sun, the palm and fingers of crude cocoons was clearer. Suddenly her mind becomes distracted reminiscing the past. While she was in Yi Tian Yuan just moments ago, she grabbed that hand and it was powerful and warm to the touch.
GuYun stood there her mind concentrating on something deeply. She did not see how many were the horses present or get on a horse until Su Ling say in a low voice, “Launch. “
She heard that deep male voice, GuYun jerked from her trance. Annoyed with herself, thinking what she really saw was just a hand and when did she became so sensitive that she became detach of her surroundings. Seeing no other horses around, GuYun have no other choice and took Su Ling’s hand.
Su Ling was very powerful. GuYun felt the force lifting her then suddenly hold her tight on her waist. Su Ling saddled her on the horseback.
Releasing the grip on her hand and on the waist, Su Ling said only one word,
“Sit well. ” Then they ride away.
The horse ran so fast and the wind emits high pitched sound across her ear. The trees constantly retrogressing from her sight. GuYun held her head down.She knew her own psychological change facing him, she seemed to be not as natural as before. Just like now, she sat up straight, because behind her was his warm gentle undulating chest. GuYun despise herself, she’s always doesn’t consider herself free and easy in doing things without dragging its feet. Su Ling likes her, obviously, she saw it, then do I like him or not ? Give some happiness and save both of us from embarrassment!
GuYun still questioning herself suddenly she felt Su Ling pulled the reins tightly to stop the horse. They arrived at the destination. She sigh, a sigh of relief or also a sigh for being irritated because she has not to come up with an snswer. In short, just like how she hastily jumped down to flee from the horse feeling good of escaping for now. Su Ling standing on the road, his eyes following the eager shadow escaping. His firm lips rose with fortitude while she scurried..
Yu Shijun already waiting for them on the riverbanks. Below his feet are long fishing nets. Parked behind him were two small wooden boats with four youngsters firmly on the side of the boat sailing in the waves.
GuYun squinted, this clear water river was wider than she thought, about seventy or eighty meters, and the water was swiftly flowing and its ripples in the sunlight was causing an unusual glare.
“Pull the net and put it at the end of the downstream. “
As long as she doesn’t think about the complex relationship between men and women, GuYun’s mind was as smart as ever. Su Ling and Yu Shijun were watching her with puzzled eyes . She was commanding the two boats to pull the nets across the river downstream.
The fishing nets were ready for a while, hundreds of people started arriving one by one on the riverbanks. GuYun hasn’t manage them yet because she was busy instructing the four youths manning the boats,
“You guys, sail to the river center and later catch the men who cannot hold up. “
” Yes ” The four youngsters nodded but did not understand her meaning. Behind her were soldiers with heavy physique and were carrying heavy sandbags coming from a very far run. The bags were heavy and they were breathing heavily, their faces flushed and in this condition they were to swim back and forth one or two times!
The four boat men looked at each other with dismay but dare not make a retreat and paddled the boats to the center of the river.
Gu Yun has turned around, the soldiers have been lined up in standing formation, because of Su Ling’s arrival, they are very excited. Gu Yun has not set them up in motion yet until she explained the purpose, ‘This afternoon’s physical training is to train your endurance, swimming technique and speed. From one end of the river’s bank swim to touch the opposite side and then return. The swim back and forth will be counted as one tour. You will be in a group of twenty people and each team will do a total of ten tours back and forth. In each tour, the last one to arrive will be deducted ten points and do a leap frog. When the ten tours are finally completed, those who have deduction they are to do leap-frog on the shore until all the swimmers on the group have finished testing. Only two or three men will be left by the tenth tour. This test though doesn’t give extra points to the remaining men,”
After Gu Yun laid down the rules, the faces of the soldiers sank, according to what she meant, for just this afternoon more than half of the soldiers were destined lose demerit points and those points were with punishment, far heavier than people who stayed swimming. Each group of twenty people will be seven teams. The men from the first team will get double the leapfrog penalty because they have to wait for the entire group to finish before they can stop jumping?
Cold sweats formed on their foreheads and everyone was praying that he is not in the first group. Their face became more and more somber , GuYun’s tone was lighthearted,
“Did you get it? “
Taking a deep breath, replied in unison,” Got it! “
The men began to undo their sandbags and are getting ready for a launch. GuYun in a cold voice said coldly,
” Who let you get rid of your sandbags? “
To transport the sandbags under our guard? The sandbags come to 20 kilos! Into the water it will become heavier, waist and feet with hanging sandbags, so how do they cross?
Listening to GuYun’s words was Su Ling and his face didn’t change but his heart began to be concerned. Su General house were basically only army and no navy. The only navy support was stationed at East Sea, these soldiers knew how to swim, but swimming technically was absolutely impossible, above all they have sandbags and are not necessarily be able to complete the ten tours, more so with 20 kilos of sandbags hanging.
Even for these soldiers hearts were sweaty. Su Ling was not saying a word, as long as how the things go he was employing no doubt and holding no suspicions! He now understood what was the purpose of the fishing net downstream..
GuYun did not give them the opportunity to refute and complain with a stern voice she ordered,
“Fasten the sandbags, prepare the first column! “
GuYun rearrange formations according to height in order, the first column was relatively lean people, Liu Xing, Leng Xiao, Shi Hu is in the first column.
“To begin.” Soldiers’ heart were wailing like the water currents but they did not hesitate at all because they don’t want to fall behind thinking of the demerit points and leapfrogging for hours .
GuYun announced rule was cruel but still they desire to have their last name to stay. After the first back and forth the first one being eliminated was Liu Xing.
He dejectedly climbed out. Liu Xing struck out at once! Gu Yun did not say anything but he started frog jumping up on the shore. GuYun secretly shook her head, unite and cleverness allowed him to get into this team, but in his physique, GuYun worried about ten days may see the end of his 100 points.
At her back view, the second tour was over . After a few rounds in the huge river, the distances grew apart from person to person and to watch them swim slow , she yelled, “You hurry! Don’t give up! “
He has been frightened to observe the river. Yu Shijun suddenly whispered,
” Like someone’s drowning. “
GuYun squinting, there’s a shadow on the river flapping, estimated to be laboring or leg cramps. GuYun waved toward the boats called,” Rescue. “
The youngsters rushed the boat to rescue.They finally know why they’ve waited in the center that is to rescue the men who’s swimming ten back and forth with strapped sandbags. Oh my goodness! This is a crazy way to train!
Drowning men looked very young, about 20 years old, saved just in time, he did swallow any water and his holding his feet with a painful look on his face.
The soldiers rowed the boat to the shore and the other soldiers rushed to help him tapping his foot.Leg cramps when swimming was normal and usually with cramps, knead and rub will be good. But the officers rubbed and kneaded for a long time, feet still like stone and it looks all the more painful. The youth bit his bottom lip not to cry out, but his repeatedly distorted face showed pain.
GuYun went before the young men, Yu Shijun said in a low voice: “Give way. “
Yu Shijun looked back at GuYun and dropped back a step.
“Hand on his shoulder. “
Yu Shijun grab the youngster’s shoulder, GuYun started to motion for his feet to kick, massaging his feet, under each limb muscles, rubbing quickly, the youth’s feet was stretched out and then bent towards the head, young man look bluer.
Soldiers on the shore were staring straight at GuYun and knew that she was to relax the young man, but they don’t know now and thought she was going to scrap his feet.
His muscles have already tensed all day and repeating a pedal foot action, coupled with the cold river water, muscles in his feet is estimated to be similar to a stone. Massaging and rubbing has not loosened the cramp. Behind a searing sight, GuYun did not see a change after stretching the leg and bending the feet. She squat down and hold his feet towards her body, holding his leg and feet with her hands, she slowly lift leg and feet straight towards the direction of his head. Su Ling watching them ruffled face came with frown. Because he approached, the youngster nervously held his breath. Stiff muscles slowly relaxed. GuYun asked in a low voice, “How is it? “
Su Ling powerful aura scared the youngsters and he immediately recovered, he stirred the aching feet and somewhat sheepishly replied, ” I’m fine. “The General’s wife may only seemed severe, after all still she is a woman with always sharp soft heart.
The feeling in his heart in the next moment was shattered by GuYun’s next words. She stood up and in a cold voice says,
“OK, frog jump. “
To leap-frog? His foot still hurts now! GuYun looks coldly at him and the young man in his heart secretly curses but only replied, “Yes. ” He withdrew his words, this woman has a heart of stone! The young soldier rubbed his leg and went to the front of the other soldiers leap-frogging for a long time.
This sunny afternoon in the beautiful clear water rivers, lanky men drenched were lined on the shore struggled to jump like frogs. On the rippling river, a deadly thumping figures look particularly ugly by the nets on the bottom. The boats also picked up several exhausted men every now and then. The picture was very tragic.
Su Ling hands folded on his chest looking solemnly said, “Are you sure before the end of this one month, you still left with hundred people? “Looking at her style in the afternoon, the practice was also difficult, practice with deadliest weapons in the morning and not letting them rest. The first day had been so harsh, one month after he estimates that there will not be one hundred or even will not be more than fifty.
GuYun went ahead and in a gravelly heartless voice, ” If they could not hold out until the last, if they simply cannot do the task, if there was no one left then the team will be disbanded. I don’t want to make them a corpse! “
Su Ling was startled, shook his head and looked at her eyes that were focused on the river with a strong determination..
Finally, after the tenth tour of swimming back and forth in the first group.They were left with less than six people. They also collapsed on the shore and could not move. GuYun instructed, “The second group! Let’s go. “
After several groups, the situation was not much better than the first group. Not many people can do ten tours. On the shore, the leap-frog team was getting longer and longer. For Liu Xing , he would cry in front of each jump with both hands to hold the ground. His face was flushed almost liver-colored and the facial water stains , don’t know if it is coming from sweat or tears?
GuYun looked back in a penetrating voice cried, “Don’t stop, go! ” GuYun’s voice now are simply the sound around the ears. The soldiers cursed at every jump. This was the only reason why they can still move on.
Sun began to set and finally all seven groups were finished. “Ok .Stop!. ” GuYun gave the order. On a long stretch of riverbank all men are lying down. The last group of people are secretly grateful but unfortunately, GuYun was not going to let them get off,
“The last two groups of men with demerits later would leap-frog back to the camp, if you can’t demerit is complete. -100%.” Ignoring the fierce eyes of the entire group, GuYun shouted,
” Assemble “
It was the slowest time ever set and some people even took three steps to climb, one step back in the queue. The always upright posture were stooped. GuYun did not blame their stance. Just next to Yu Shijun she said, “Remember who was detained , every scores deduct the points, then let them go. “
Yu Shijun reluctantly replied,” Yes. ” He doubted if these people will able to practice tomorrow?
“Marched back to the camp. After half an hour wait for me at the barracks. ” What does she wants? Everyone crashes. Gu Yun could see faces that have both surprise and hate look. Look like they wanted to cry but no tears. ” You wanted to withdraw, there is no use.”
On the first day of training to automatically quit, how will they join in the military compound later! They wished one could to attend to GuYun to dismember her body, but they have to listen to her every command. These men once galloped in the sandy plains and were great soldiers, but now their hearts were very aggrieved and vexed!
GuYun raised her eyebrows gently and said, “Are not leaving? Half an hour is not very long. “
This woman was just too pushy! They want to go, but they have a ‘broken’ foot at the moment. Even if there’s General Su presence, they were extremely tired and they don’t have the strength to look unstoppable. Earlier more than hundred of proud people marched but now with tired two legs, they were slowly moving to the camp and along the way there were “frogs” for a company.
Eagle eyes slightly narrowed watching the so-called Elite troops walking slower than an old lady. Su Ling suddenly turned to Gu Yun and with seriousness said, “Han Shu is wrong, after a month, they’ll never call you witch. They’ll say, you’re not a woman! ” He thought he was already cold, but in training she was more cruel and heartless.
Known earlier that he wouldn’t say anything nice, GuYun gave him a blank stare,
“Are you bored! Can you do nothing better?”
She decided not to ride Su Ling’s horse but inspired by the twilight walk toward the General’s Office. It will be five miles and half an hour to go. She doesn’t want Su Ling too close right now and she needs a little time to think.
Su Ling did not force her to ride the horse. Holding the horse behind her and looking at the slender figure walking, the doubts in his heart became more and more heavy. She was no doubt Qing Mo, but why does a daughter understands the way of combat training and martial arts. This woman has so many weird ideas, some carefully thought off and quite useful training methods. Qing Ling on the other hand, in the face of abnormal body was calm. The dead bodies, she treated like a stick of cinnamon and the autopsies were very precise even Dan Yulan had to admire her. In the palaces, beauty, women of both talent and appearance and royalty. Qing Feng, their second sister, was not ordinary woman to advance from maid to a lady. She became one of four Princess in the palace in just less than a year’s time. Her means and strategies was that of no ordinary woman at all.
Rumors about Qing’s home and the three girls on the street were all misrepresentation to the world, or were they intentional? Both person walking towards General’s office were deep in their thoughts. From afar Su Yu can be seen coming out from the House. GuYun was going to speak and to greet him but he suddenly turned and quickly went on the opposite direction.
GuYun was curious and about to ask him something but decided to observe him first. Su Yu clearly saw them. Why was he walking away in such a hurry? GuYun asked in a low voice, “Su Yu have you been busy recently? ” Su Yu appeared slightly gloomy and didn’t say anything. Su Ling just nod towards him.
GuYun did not pay attention to much and did not take it to heart. The two entered the house together, she prepared to proceed to training fields directly then to the barracks. But after the Hua Ting (Flower Garden) yard she was stopped.
Su Yan, a bowl on his hand, walked out from the Hua Ting, smiling behind him was Su Quan following with full leisure. They strolled towards Su Ling and GuYun. He rushed to the front of GuYun and excitedly hand delivered in front of her, showcasing what he has and said,
“Girl, you’re back! I will give you simmering soup.This is the old turtle mushroom soup. “
That bowl of dark old turtle soup has mushroom in it? Without thinking, GuYun quickly replied, “I don’t want to drink. “
Following him was Su Quan Milei Buddha’s smiling flower face ,
” I told you those things people don’t like, eat my pills simply don’t run into your soup! “
” You and your little nagging. “
The two men began arguing and GuYun was getting a headache and stroking her forehead, when is the day will these two men die? Just when she intended to bypass the two when Su Qing kicked up from the left with light breeze smile and said,
“Let me feel your pulse. “
GuYun was ready to leave but she remembered Su Qing last internal energy hand skills was amazing. Also he has more of a goodwill and trust, not like this two loquacious old man whom she feel some detachment. She really admires his calmness. GuYun did not dodge, lifted the left hand and stretched it in front of him.
Su Qing took GuYun’s pulse. Su Ling was observing on the side and gave the two bickering old men ‘a look’ . The two men bitterly stopped.
Su Qing fingers stayed on her wrist only a little long, afterwards she recovered her hand . He said, “The body has no problem, take a rest and to replenish the body. In one month you will be able to jump. “
Su Yan quickly took the opportunity to send in the hands of a soup bowl and said,” Yes, to fill the body quickly, drink a soup.”
GuYun ignored him and stared at Su Qing who was laughing, smiling and with hopeful face, she asked,
” Now, I can start doing some recuperative exercises? “
Su Qing lightly stroked his white beard, smiled,” Yes, but not too rushed. ” Su Ling staring at him, Su Qing still freely laughing and completely ignored the arrows like gaze. It’s all the same to him. Seeing the hands of SuYan still holding the thick soup, he turns to Qing Mo and said,”
Drink some , the soup is useful for the body and will not do you harm, also that super dabu pills, if you eat it is good and makes you get cured faster. “
Her body other than the injury, there is more serious internal injuries. In accordance with her pulse, her body is not strong though he reckoned this girl is mentally strong but physically will not stand if she is forced to do a heavy burden. Bing Lian has been by her side. Celestials in thousands of years giving her the energy, but just letting her skinny body with itself holding the power, over time with one-sided supply of energy, perhaps later Bing Lian will be angered and that when she need the energy, it will be empty.
If she can get her body back to its previous state all things doesn’t matter. GuYun took the bowl of black dark gravy, drank it and it was not bitter, but was definitely not good to drink. GuYun obediently drank the soup. At its best Su Yan happily laughs, “That’s great! Tomorrow I’ll give you stew! “She’s too thin. He wants to take advantage of this period of time, surely to make her fat.
Su Quan hated that triumphant look of Su Yan and tried to say, “It was all dark, before dinner. One can eat stew ! “
The two add up to more than 100 years old and also like to bicker with each other, GuYun find that funny shook her head saying, “You eat, I’m going to camp. “
For the training lesson of the group, the men didn’t know how to follow the timetable and she will make them impressed.
As she finished talking , GuYun walked towards the direction of training field. Su Ling did not go with her this time. Those deep dark eyes following through the road away were complex under the light. He kept his eyes on her until GuYun was swallowed by the darkness and beyond sight. He just slowly recovered his sight when he noticed Su Qing’s ‘kind of smile’ with silvery voice in his ears, “Do you recognize who is she? “
Su Ling’s straight back suddenly stiffened and with low laugh and in unusually brisk cold voice ,”I only dare then to want her? “
Then Su Qing laughed and shook his head. Ling by his calculation thought we do not know.The smirk on his face look brilliant and even dazzling.
The tables have figures that looked tired, forcing themselves to sit still and straight, staring at GuYun’s eyes, they were fully alert. They weere constantly worried about how she will find fault in them.
“You should have dinner after the conclusion of today’s performance, but because of two tasks that are not complete, I’ll point it out to you, repeating it again is not allowed. “
Is she asking which of the tasks they have not done? They did slack off? How did their hands and feet get numbed, this girl, she lies with their eyes open! GuYu’s voice fall on the pairs of eyes that were already full of grievances bursting out a fierce light. Even if most people wish to rush with her theories, but feared it will give her an excuse to freak out. So, forcefully they have to kept it in. If eyes could kill then, GuYun was estimated to have been killed a thousand times.
Ignoring that both tiger like eyes filled with hostilities, GuYun said, “Today’s breakfast and lunch you are not really eating. We are preparing food for you to eat but you’re eating only half of the amount. I give you a set of training arrangements, each item you have to perform, including meals! Every hour what should be done, I have said it very clearly, starting from this meal, without my permission or otherwise every meal you must go back to the barracks. Kitchens will provide you with a good food, finish it if you are given something to eat, not even one grain of rice should be left ,if not ten points will be deducted. Do you understand.? “
Eh? She said eating? Officers and men’s heart anger has disappeared, displaced with laughs, training what to train now she also manages them how much to eat. It is easy, hungry have to eat, if not hungry just eat little. She manages really too much! Even if their heart were cursing her maliciously, on their mouth they can’t but only reply “Understood.”
GuYun raising her eyebrow slightly, these people have plenty of spunk, they give lip service with incisively expressions, for fear she could not see! Well, she like the true nature of man, but liking was one thing, but now she’s not too likeable was another matter.
Once GuYun’s mouth raised to give an order, all present get a goose bumps because she was ….smiling.
“Kitchen give them dinner. “
” Yes “
After a while, several veterans lugged in several big baskets and in one basket with a bunch of big bowls like pot, if that can be called a bowl.
“The bowl or say like a flower-pot ” was placed in front of everyone, and all looked at each other with dismay, then the other baskets were opened and several veterans with a baskets, one by one to their “pot” adding things in.
Two cucumbers just right, three tablespoons of rice a little more, but also to eat half chicken well with rice, a spoonful of vegetables and and mix well, eight eggs a bit excessive, two tablespoons of fresh red raw beef was what does that mean? Soldiers had a pile in front of the “pot”. Gu Yun laughed and has very gentle face.They must have this, she was deliberately wanted to finished them, she just wants them to be penalized right? Don’t even think about it!
Angrily grabs their chopsticks and bowed their heads. All the soldiers were buried like that. In the eyes of Yu Shijun, GuYun has been very kind to them, at least not that they have to eat bugs and snakes and rodents. The last scene in the rainforest , they ate worms. If they think about it now, it was disgusting.
GuYun finally sat down on the stool, Yu Shijun beckoned. Yu Shijun went before her, GuYun pointed to the side of the chair and motioned him to sit down, Yu Shijun hesitated for a moment, finally sat down.
GuYun asked in a gruff voice, “Is anybody using the training field tonight? “
” No one. “She nodded with satisfaction, Yu Shijun holding a few chances, said,” No training tonight, right? “
GuYun replied solemnly,” Of course. “
Written plainly on her face” is none negotiable “three words, Yu Shijun even sympathize with the soldiers but he was on titillated whiskers at this time.
“Later you go prepare fourteen bales of hemp twine to the training field. After they had enough rest, on a quarter of an hour assemble in the training field . ” GuYun was talking when the light wind blows and the upright ears secretly listening of what was Yu Shijun agreed with. They are unanimously wandered in the hearts, this woman was absolute devil, how can a day be so long?
Do not know what she will come up with in the evening with low sigh Yu Shijun, replied.
GuYun chuckled, why are they yaosibuhuo(*meaning more dead than alive) look. This people really owed a lesson and she remembered the training arrangements stated in the evening will be learning of culture, there was time on the schedule. Were their brains in the end cannot remember?
GuYun was sitting there, waiting for a long time but her front was kongkongruye (still empty/have nothing). She stared at the veterans of the kitchen, asked in a loud voice, “My meal? “
Ah? She wanted to eat with them? Not only the yaosibuhuo soldiers over there, many soldiers looked back at her, she would also like to eat raw beef and drink raw eggs ? She was not only ordering that for them to eat? GuYun gave an expression that she will eat the same course meal and the kitchen veteran foolishly gawk at her for a while, comes back to his senses and suddenly fled and said, “You wait! Coming right now! “
Gu Yun roundly smiled,” Exactly the same but cut it in two bowls “
” Yes ” Kitchen veterans quickly ran into the kitchen, a girl to train a soldier was strange but even more strange thing was sharing at the same table with men and eating the same amount as men. The General’s preference of woman was really hard to figure out.
This meal, the men ate until they’re very full. The correct term “ is eaten until wanting to cry” and not one grain of rice was left. But they were more worried about the night training, were they fed and then spit it out? This would not be her another way to torture them, right?
When a group of people gather at the training field, it was completely dark and stuck around were torches. GuYun has a bundle of rope at her feet, one hand was holding a rope of thirty feet long, flickering candlelight illuminates the expressionless face.
Men’s hearts were beating like drums. When she said earlier that there’s training tonight, even if their hearts settles down a bit, but she was saying nothing. Making it more appalling in particular was that their limbs were stiff and aching and the waiting alone was an ordeal that will make one crumble.
They were overthinking , GuYun stood there without talking, in fact, she was in a deep thought how to approach the lesson practically, that was tying a knot.While she was thinking her face has no expression.
Finally, after suffering through a quarter of an hour, GuYun finally began to speak, “I would like to summarize your performance today. Through training today, you should be aware, how bad your fitness, your body now will be impossible to keep up with the training behind me. I want to improve your strength and endurance, there is only one way, is to practice. All the exercises you have to go all out, I said I just want the best person, I hope you are. “
They were the best people and thus were the reason they were selected into this team. But now their hearts have other thoughts, this woman cannot be think of us as worthless! GuYun took a look at the rope on the ground, clear voice says,
“In accordance with the group in the morning. “
The formation soon stood, GuYun instructed Yu Shijun,” Bring the things out. Rope set, bundle of paper and one charcoal. “
” Yes. “he answered quickly. Yu Shijun distributed a bundle of hemp rope, paper and a small piece of charcoal. He was even more confused, charcoal and paper and what she want to do with it?
GuYun didn’t waste time, holding a long rope said,
“The rope is the best and most common tool by knots, one can transform a length of a rope and use it. If in the wild, vines of plants or strips of cloth can be used as a tool. This evening I will you teach ten different knots and how to untie the knots. You must learn and be proficient in that even in the case of complete darkness you should be able to accurately complete the knot and also be able to untie them. “
Tonight is for them to learn how to play making knots! Soldiers were secretly relieved. GuYun eyebrow rose slightly and continued, “I have an exam tomorrow evening, no answer and wrong answer, points will be deducted do you understand? “
” Understand! “
As for the points, they already have become numbed, but dare not scorn and they really don’t have much deduction.
“This the first, the simplest and most commonly used figure of eight knot. “GuYun said and gave them the model and demonstration,” figure of eight knots ring including the eight-shaped knot. “
Actually, GuYun spoke slowly, demonstration also was slow so they can see clearly and also they are doing hands-on as their guide. But what was thought as an easy deal of knots method were putting these strong group of elite to sweat, ten different kind of rope knots, again plus unknotting the knot and it has its own method, total twenty different knotting and unknotting procedure, some rope knot were easy to “unknot” but some were difficult. Besides that rope knot have different uses, they now knew what was the purpose of paper and charcoal.
Within such a short period of time and if one doesn’t write it down and if they don’t remember for tomorrow’s exam, what then?
To see a bunch of people scrambling to tie knots, making notes and Yu Shijun finally knew why on the selection of soldiers, she required literacy. Now, he see…
“Today’s training will end up here, marched back to camp. ” Her voice was cool, firt time the men felt that the time passes so fast, drawn on numerous papers were knots and now everyone’s brain was also a tangled in knots.
GuYun laughs hesrtily, “Better not be late tomorrow or I will let you know, how very kind I am. “
Bright female voice sounded carefree, people tend to shake a bit. Only one thought in mind, do or die they cannot be late tomorrow!
Afree a few days training and practice every day their limbs were hurting, but soldiers managed to gradually adapt to the training method of GuYun. Tomorrow is the day of weapon competition, practiced quite excitedly today. GuYun is also looking forward to their performance tomorrow. After all her test method, absolutely not within their imagination and the target not as easy as they thought.
End of a training day, everyone has been very tired. On her way back to Yi Tian Yuan, she saw Su Yu coming her way with his head down and staggering. GuYun broke into yell, “Hey, Su Yu.”
He heard the sound, Su Yu seems confused, looked up and saw GuYun smiling and waving at him. His face turned gloomy, as if something within him was being pinched. Su Yu turned to leave.
GuYun who supposed to say something a moment ago was now embarrassed and just froze in her place. Did she offended him? Occasionally these days, when she met him, he was always in a hurry and being ignored. Now, late at night she had done nothing wrong and she actually gave him a smile , she was snubbed and just given her his back!. GuYun was annoyed seeing the eager shadow escaping shouted,
“Su Yu, you stop right there! “
Su Yu was stiff and paused for a moment then hurriedly left. But GuYun pursued and got in front of him. The atmosphere was covered with smell of alcohol, Su Yu was breathing heavily..
