Chapter 256: Let’s Gossip About You and Instructor Tang!
The party of four moved together for a few hours and managed to eliminate another veteran.
They did not see anyone on the way, but the number on the wristband showed that there were thirty one people left.
Judging from the current situation, they were all probably hidden and did not have any plans of battling just yet.
As time went on, the sky began to darken.
They wanted to find more people to eliminate, but as time went on, their stamina had decreased so they could only take some time to rest and recover.
It was fine not having anything to eat, but not having anything to drink was the worst.
For some reason, the weather that day was extremely sunny and warm, and even though the sun had started setting, the air itself was still quite warm.
Jian Qi sat on the ground and used a large leaf to fan herself. “I’m going to die of thirst!”
Then, she lay down on the ground and looked up at the sky with a smile. “I really want lightning to strike me down right now!”
This made the three that were together with her look at her with concern.
Was she going to get heatstroke?
The sky quickly darkened, and even the stars had become visible, a scene that could not be seen in the city.
In the city, there were tall buildings and concrete everywhere, and even if someone looked up it would be like peering out of a well.
In these wide plains, the starlit sky was so beautiful that it was hard to look away.
Of course, the sky full of stars meant that it was going to be another day of blistering sunshine the next day! What a mood breaker!
Jian Qi looked at the three men that were sitting there vigilantly next to her and smiled. “Don’t you guys feel blessed to have such a beauty with you under a sky full of stars?”
The three of them looked at each other before looking back at her, and one of the freshmen said, “Comrade Jian Qi, could you not praise yourself in such a roundabout way?”
She was truly way too relaxed considering what was going on right now. Everyone was on high alert, and she was the only one lying there without a care in the world, but they knew that she could always be counted on!
Jian Qi did not react at all to being called out, and merely said, “I’m just trying to lighten the mood!”
“Sorry for burdening you then.” Lu Yao replied.
Jian Qi smiled. “Instructor Lu, this is the first sentence you’ve said to me after so many hours!”
Seeing the mischievous glint in her eyes, Lu Yao looked away and decided not to talk to her ever again.
The two others smiled, and one of them asked, “Instructor Lu, are you two really love rivals?”
Upon hearing this, Lu Yao’s expression immediately became sour.
He was about to refute angrily before Jian Qi spoke first with a pitiful expression, “If we weren’t love rivals, we would definitely be BFFs! It’s a shame that we both fell for the same man, but my Instructor Tang is such an amazing man so I understand…”
Lu Yao immediately shouted through gritted teeth, “Jian Qi!”
Jian Qi clasped her hands over her mouth in mock shock. “I forgot to be subtle about it, I’m sorry! Hey guys, don’t gossip about Instructor Lu and Instructor Tang! Can’t you see that he’s shy? Stop poking fun at him for who he loves!”
Lu Yao. “…”
He wanted to kill her again!
The two freshmen laughed. “Alright no more gossip about Instructor Lu, but what’s the deal with you and Instructor Tang?”
Jian Qi looked at them airily. “Are men all so gossipy?”
The freshmen. “…”
