Chapter 75 – Who are you going with?
Secretary Jin found herself in a bit of a dilemma. She felt that it was still too early to bring up these matters, especially since the Marshal was still not back. However, she began thinking about handling his affairs after his absence.
Considering this, as a considerate secretary, she said, “Lu Luo, I think you have the key point of this issue.”
Jian Luo was someone willing to make corrections promptly and humbly asked, “What is it?”
Secretary Jin emphasized, “Of course, the key point is that the Marshal is not here. Where do you want to go?”
There was a moment of silence in the room.
As a weak, helpless human, Jian Luo always had his own thoughts. His current thought was, “Why can’t I stay here and wait for him to return?”
Secretary Jin shook her head, “That’s not possible. Because you and the Marshal are not in a partner relationship, and you’re pregnant, which is a critical and dangerous time. So, your care is essential. Whether the Marshal is here or not, the responsibility for your care will naturally fall to someone else.”
Jian Luo seemed to understand. But soon, he grasped the point, “Um, I want to know how many choices I have.”
Secretary Jin responded quickly, listing them one by one, “I think, performing rituals for the Lord is a possibility. Nie Xian also has the right. Of course, there’s a high possibility of the imperial palace. But in the end…”
Jian Luo’s lips twitched, “Don’t sell lawsuits.”
“The Marshal will probably let you choose,” Secretary Jin confidently flipped her hair and smiled, “because he definitely wants you to be happy.”
Jian Luo felt she had a point.
As they were discussing, the door on the other side opened, and Lu Shifeng stood in the doorway, seemingly enveloped in an invisible aura of bloodshed. He looked serious and imposing, sending shivers down one’s spine. However, when his gaze moved away from Secretary Jin’s face and landed on Jian Luo, it softened considerably.
Secretary Jin: “…”
Fortunately, she was a professional and skilled at reading people’s moods. So, Secretary Jin tactfully excused herself, “Well, then, I’ll leave first.”
As they passed each other, Lu Shifeng turned his face slightly, “Go and pack his luggage.”
Secretary Jin nodded, “Yes.”
Once Secretary Jin left, the room was left with only Jian Luo and Lu Shifeng. Jian Luo hesitated, “Um…”
Lu Shifeng walked over to him, “Come.”
A question mark seemed to float above Jian Luo’s head, but he obediently stood up. Lu Shifeng walked ahead, and Jian Luo followed. Although he didn’t know where Lu Shifeng was taking him, it seemed to involve official matters.
Lu Shifeng led Jian Luo through several light walls, getting closer to the interior of the military base. This was a field that Jian Luo had never been involved in before. Surveillance stars periodically shimmered on the walls, ensuring full monitoring coverage in this area.
Occasionally, passing soldiers stopped and saluted, saying:
Perhaps it was Jian Luo’s own misconception, but he felt that many people’s gazes were on him, and these looks were not easily ignored. Fortunately, these soldiers were very discreet; they would generally retract their gazes after a few glances. Under this kind of pressure, he had to get a bit closer to Lu Shifeng.
Marshal Lu had long, slender legs, and his strides were quite wide. Even at a normal walking pace, it was a bit challenging for Jian Luo to keep up. He followed with some difficulty, and the gap gradually widened until he was left far behind.
Jian Luo looked at Lu Shifeng with some helplessness, “Um…”
Almost as soon as he spoke, Lu Shifeng’s steps came to a halt. He seemed to have excellent hearing.
The Marshal turned around and saw Jian Luo quite far away, furrowing his brows, “Why aren’t you walking?”
“I’m not not walking,” Jian Luo gritted his teeth, “I just can’t keep up with you.”
There was a brief awkward silence.
After a while, Lu Shifeng said, “Come on, this time I’ll wait for you.”
Jian Luo wasn’t an overly sensitive person. If someone said they would wait, he would naturally pick up his little short legs and hurry to catch up.
When he reached Lu Shifeng’s side, he couldn’t help but sigh, “Dragon Clan members have excellent stamina.”
Lu Shifeng slowed his pace, casting a sidelong glance at him, “Your stamina is very poor.”
Silence spoke volumes.
Jian Luo couldn’t help but sigh, “Do we have to go through this again?”
They had just arrived at their destination. The smart light gate scan was complete, revealing a massive training ground. What was most surprising was that the roof of the training ground was open to the sky.
How can one describe its size? Based on Jian Luo’s estimate, even with Lu Shifeng’s dragon-sized body, this training ground had more than enough space.
Jian Luo couldn’t help but ask, “So, Long ge, why did you bring me here?”
Lu Shifeng gestured with a swipe, and a holographic screen appeared out of thin air. He entered some commands on it, and a door on the other side of the venue opened. An assistant pushed a cart loaded with customized fitness equipment.
When the cart reached Jian Luo, the assistant respectfully stepped aside and stood straight.
Lu Shifeng walked over to the cart and casually picked up an item, handing it to Jian Luo, “Can you use this?”
It was a seemingly small rod, but when Jian Luo received it, it suddenly became incredibly heavy, almost as if it weighed a thousand pounds. He was nearly overwhelmed and almost dropped it.
In disbelief, he looked at Lu Shifeng, “Why is it so heavy?”
Lu Shifeng stood in front of him, “You can’t just hold it; you need to swing it.”
Isn’t that the same as doing pull-ups?
Jian Luo sighed, “So, I have to exercise with this in the future?”
There was a whole cart of equipment behind him, all small, cute-looking, seemingly harmless weapons. But Jian Luo didn’t dare to underestimate them after the experience with the rod. It seemed like he was in for a tough training regimen.
Lu Shifeng said, “If you suddenly arrange training for yourself, your body might not keep up. Start with these.”
Jian Luo asked, “Do I have to train to a certain level?”
Lu Shifeng was quite relaxed about this, “I’ve already created a corresponding schedule for you. Just follow that. If you feel tired, you can take breaks. No need to overexert yourself.”
Jian Luo had thought about the idea of exercising his body, especially considering that his physical fitness was probably a bit lower compared to the An Xing people. It would put him at a disadvantage, so improving his physical condition was a path he was willing to take. But before that, he had to learn how to use these tools.
Jian Luo picked up a cute rabbit-shaped tool and asked, “How do I use this?”
Lu Shifeng stood by his side, explaining in detail. The assistant standing nearby was dumbfounded. Who would have thought that someone of Lu Shifeng’s status would personally teach someone how to exercise?
They remembered when the B101 star tried to invite Lu Shifeng to train there for a few days. The material conditions offered were enough to make a poor planet instantly wealthy. Even then, Lu Shifeng had refused.
Someone asked at the time, “Why?”
Lu Shifeng’s answer was, “Their food is terrible.”
Regardless, Lu Shifeng wouldn’t interfere in dragon training matters on this side. Except when he was in the mood, he would train the young dragons.
But it could be incredibly brutal!
Who among them hadn’t experienced being beaten by Lu Shifeng to the point of self-reflection!
During training, even one mistake meant punishment, and everyone knew that Lu Shifeng had little patience. If a mistake occurred, the Marshal would be furious, like a child crying in the night.
After learning for a while, Jian Luo looked up at Lu Shifeng with a pitiful expression, “I still don’t know how to do it.”
The assistant secretly glanced and felt a sense of satisfaction. Finally, they had encountered someone even clumsier than themselves. If this person couldn’t learn this, they would soon discover how brutal Lu Shifeng could be!
After waiting for a while, Lu Shifeng’s voice was calm and gentle, “Okay, do it one more time.”
The assistant’s eyes widened in astonishment.
Jian Luo gasped, “I’m a bit tired. Can I take a break?”
“Sure,” Lu Shifeng turned to the dumbfounded assistant, “Get some water.”
The assistant snapped out of their shock and saluted, “Yes!”
It turns out the Marshal was a double-standard dragon! They were like a storm, cruel, while his little wife was as gentle as a breeze!
Jian Luo sat cross-legged on the ground, thinking about Secretary Jin. He hesitated to speak.
Lu Shifeng saw through his thoughts, “Go on.”
“Well,” Jian Luo asked with restraint, “If you’re not here, where do you plan to make me go?”
Lu Shifeng didn’t deny it but instead turned the question back to Jian Luo, “Who do you want to stay with?”
T/N: Hey there! There is plenty more where that came from, so stay tuned! And stay healthy! Straighten your posture, so some stretches and drink some water before continuing hehe~
