The Military Female Soldier With Unwavering Stubbornness - Chapter 2078
Chapter 2078 Hard To Say
Deputy Chief of Staff Du couldn’t be touched for the time being, but on Ye Zhifan’s side, a thorough investigation was already underway.
Currently, still in New Year’s festivities, the waters of the Yunnan Officialdom was still calm, and without waves, meanwhile, Ye Jian, who had handed the recording to Supreme Commander Xia, was leaving the Provincial City while boarding the night train, she needed to return to Shuikou village to get what her mother had left behind.
Last year, Director Chai had arrived under the guise of darkness to pass on what Sun Xueqing had placed in his hands to Principal Chen’s hands; Ye Jian hadn’t seen it once, only when Principal Chen had mentioned it did she know her mother had left something behind.
Besides that, Ye Zhifan also had something that belonged to War hero Sun Xueqing.
Thinking about her mother, Ye Jian, who had boarded the train, leaned against the window and slowly closed her eyes to hide the sorrow in her pupils while a sense of unbending resolve found its way between her delicate brows.
“Little lass, the belongings of War Hero Sun Xueqing given to me by Director Chai, I’ve hid them in a compartment in the wardrobe, you go get it back first. Ye Zhifan also has something that belonged to War Hero Sun Xueqing; those are items your mother had left for you to remember her by, you must get those back.”
“Today, Ye Zhifan’s family is living a happy life; you should evade their limelight and bring back what your mother had left for you. Their family wouldn’t stay happy for too long.”
In her past life, she was useless; she couldn’t even see anything that belonged to her mother; she didn’t even know that Ye Zhifan had one of her mother’s items in his hands!
As of now, She can’t make the same dumb mistakes of her past life; she must correct the mistakes she made in her past life one by one!
Principal Chen’s warning flashed in her mind, regulating her breathing covertly, Ye Jian gradually turned calm, it’ll be soon, it’ll be soon, right now, Ye Zhifan might seem to have a great future, yet he didn’t know his action of sending Ye Ying into the military was the same as demolishing his own career.
Let’s allow them to act cocky for a while longer; the higher you climb, the harder your drop!
She was waiting for that family to fall from the heavens and into the mud!
By the time she returned to Shuikou Village, it was already 5 p.m. the next day, and it was when the houses were blowing smoke, and the fragrance of food permeated the air.
The air of festivities filled the village; each and every house had Spring Couplets stuck on their doors and were hanging red lanterns, with a shallow smile on the edge of her lips; Ye Jian thanked the villagers for their invitations and returned home.
The house was still how it looked back then; green tiles, white walls, each grass and plant seemed so familiar.
“Creak creak” pushing open the wooden door with a rusted hinge, she pulled on the light, pure and white light illuminated every corner of the central room, the familiar furnishings, the familiar smell, this was her home, a place where she could put down all the walls she had erected in her heart, a home where she could have peace of mind.
When her gaze landed on the two large chairs placed in the central room, the corners of Ye Jian’s eyes turned sour.
That was the chair Grandpa Gen loved sitting in, the old man sat in one big chair, while she sat in the other one, and quietly listening to the elder talk, listening to his teachings of how to act humanely, listening to him teaching her how to make a place for herself, listening to him scolding her, listening to him educating her…
The object was here, but the person wasn’t, her home was still here, but the elder who had wanted the best for her wasn’t here any longer.
Ye Jian pursed her lips slightly as she walked towards the big chair, then she slowly sat down, she leaned her body to the side, so that she would face the other big chair, sitting in the same posture as when she was listening to Old Uncle Gen talk in the past.
“Grandpa, Ye Zhifan would be toppled over soon. Grandpa, see, I’ve finally waited for that day to come. Grandpa had always told me, there are some things that cannot be rushed, neither could I be impatient; I’ve always remembered your words, waiting, looking forward, guarding… and it finally happened today, I’m really happy.”
