The soldiers laughed even louder. They respected their captain and loved him. At the same time, they teased their cold but broad-minded captain.
Even if the soldiers called Li Jinnian a ‘demon king’, he was the ‘demon king’ that everyone acknowledged.
Ye Jian, who was caught red-handed, didn’t panic. She smiled as she looked at the camouflage luggage bag in Li Jinnian’s hands. She continued teasing him, “We have been training for almost two months. This is the first time that Demon King took the initiative to help his comrades with their luggage. If I knew this would happen, I would have brought my diving equipment along.”
“Hahaha, Demon King, why don’t you bring my diving equipment down to increase the weight? Don’t let Ye Jian feel pity.”
“You are going to take one set of equipment anyway. Another set won’t make much difference. Demon King, take mine too.”
The soldiers, who understood what Ye Jian meant, laughed even louder. The last bit of sadness left with the laughter, leaving only the laughter of today.
When Li Jinnian, who didn’t like to laugh, heard his comrades teasing him, his cold expression broke for a split second. Even Ye Jian didn’t notice the faint smile on his face.
“Let’s go.” His voice was cold but Ye Jian heard it clearly. “It’s getting late.”
Ye Jian nodded. She didn’t care about the small luggage in his hand and followed Li Jinnian to the deck.
“Let’s go, let’s go. Let’s get off the ship. Brothers, clean up your equipment and get off the ship.” Big Whale and Big Eel led a team each. They walked to the deck neatly and got off the ship one by one.
Xia Jinyuan’s footsteps got bigger and faster. He saw a figure that he hadn’t seen for two months coming down from the patrol ship. She stood together with the water ghosts in black diving suits. She was especially eye-catching in the army camouflage uniform. After Xia Jinyuan locked his gaze on her, it never left.
Ye Jian, who was standing in a line, turned her head and looked towards the pier. She saw a tall figure walking towards her. Her black eyes seemed to be shining brightly. Her beautiful face was blooming. It was so beautiful that Li Jinnian who was dressing the unit couldn’t help but pause.
His gaze was as bright as the sun. She could feel the warmth in his eyes even from more than ten meters away.
Ye Jian felt warm in her heart. She stood straight and stopped looking at him from the corner of her eyes. She couldn’t help but smile.
She guessed that the person who came to fetch her would be him.
No matter where she was, Captain Xia would always appear in front of her in time. He was like a lighthouse in the sea, allowing her to find the right direction at any time.
Xia Jinyuan felt Ye Jian’s joyful gaze too. The smile on his handsome face got warmer. The coldness on his face disappeared. There was only gentleness left.
She was happy about his arrival, and so was he.
“Demon King treats Ye Jian differently. Look, he even helped Ye Jian carry her bag.” The eyes of Big Shark, who didn’t find any problems with Xia Jinyuan after rounds of probing, turned dark.
Major Xia and Ye Jian were just comrades? From what he said just now, that was an uncertainty.
However, since Major Xia didn’t make it clear, he felt that their relationship was just that of comrades. Moreover, Ye Jian had just graduated from senior high. Judging from the intensity of her training and her studies, she didn’t have much time to fall in love.
Most importantly, Ye Jian didn’t even take an extra look at a man like Demon King Li. From this, it could be seen that she didn’t have any thoughts about love… A capable and outstanding female soldier. Demon King Li’s lifelong happiness can be settled in the near future!
