Chapter 1617: Which Foot
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Yang could not even protect himself.
He turned his head away and pretended not to see anything.
If they died, he would have his brothers to accompany him.
He had no regrets, even if he died!
One of the female soldiers handed over a piece of paper and said, “We opened it.
There are words written on the paper.”
After pausing for a moment, the female soldier said, “Let me explain.
Yang wasnt scolding you just now.
Your wife was scolding you in the paper crane.”
Lu Xingzhi took the piece of paper.
Looking at the color and texture of the paper, it was indeed part of the paper cranes.
However, after he took it, the first thing he noticed was not the words on it but the footprints.
“Who stepped on it” Lu Xingzhi asked.
As soon as he finished speaking, everyone in the room tacitly reached out their hands and pointed at Xiao Gao.
Well, it was indeed Xiao Gao who stepped on it.
“You… traitors!” Xiao Gao wanted to cry, but there were no tears.
He had no choice but to return the paper he had hidden behind his back to Lu Xingzhi.
“Colonel, do you think I can atone for my sins one more time”
Without waiting for Lu Xingzhi to ask, Xiao Gao continued to speak on his own, “Colonel, look, if it were not for us, you wouldnt have known that your wife had left a message for you on the paper crane.
As a result, we unintentionally assisted you.
Therefore, Colonel, you should treat this as if it never happened! Oh, right! Yang and the rest said that they would complain to your wife when they see her.”
Yang and the others only had one thought—revenge had come so quickly!
Lu Xingzhi glanced at the people who dared not meet his eyes and chuckled.
It would have been fine if he had not laughed.
Everyone was more or less used to his cold expression.
When he laughed, everyone had goosebumps.
Those who wanted to see Colonel Lus smiling face should come at that time.
Colonel Lus smile was terrifying.
“Which foot did you use to step on this” Lu Xingzhis eyes lingered on Xiao Gaos leg for a few seconds.
Xiao Gao retracted his foot and then stuck out his right foot.
Lu Xingzhi left Xiao Gao with his guess and his belongings.
Xiao Gao stood there with his right foot tucked away like a red-crowned crane with only his left foot.
He was dumbfounded.
“Colonel! Colonel! I used my left foot.
Can I change my answer to my left foot”
Lu Xingzhi had already started walking when he grunted a negative response before disappearing into the night and returning to his tent.
To Lu Xingzhi, Xiao Gaos discovery was a pleasant surprise, but at the same time, he was annoyed because the younger man had stepped on the paper.
If Xiao Gao had not stolen the paper cranes and opened them to find out that there were words inside, Lu Xingzhi probably would not have discovered the words.
That was the first gift he had received from Jiang Yao.
Even though he was shameless enough to remind him of his birthday several times, it was a gift that surprised him.
Jiang Yao folded the paper cranes with her own hands, one by one.
He could not wait to touch them carefully, not daring to let any of them be damaged in the slightest.
How could he bear to open the paper cranes
She had hidden the words so carefully that he would not have noticed it if he did not open them.
Lu Xingzhi patted the piece of paper with footprints on it.
His heart ached a little, but when he saw the words on it, the corners of his lips could not help but curve upward.
That faint smile was utterly different from the sinister smile he had shown Xiao Gao and the others..
That smile was a little warm, and even his eyes and brows were tinged with gentleness.
