However, he was so tired that he could not speak.
As the young master of a wealthy family, running one lap was already his limit.
As expected, the distance between the two of them widened.
When Song Jinghuan ran the third lap, Liu Jinbao was still running the second lap.
When Song Jinghuan ran the fourth lap, Liu Jinbao finally finished the second lap.
Seeing Song Jinghuan run past him for the third time, Liu Jinbao gave up.
He chose to wait for her at the finish line!
Song Jinghuan ignored him. After running five rounds, she went straight to Meng Wu’s tent.
After taking a few steps, she turned around angrily. “Why are you following me again?”
Liu Jinbao’s face was still red from exercise. His eyes wandered as he said, “I’m not following you. I just happened to take this path.”
There was no need to mention his appearance. Otherwise, Shen Yijia would not have brought him home with her after taking a look at him.
This appearance made people inexplicably want to bully him.
Song Jinghuan suppressed this undesirable thought in her heart and rolled her eyes, not exposing him.
Ever since she told him her plan, this person had been following her around all day. Fortunately, the two of them didn’t live in the same tent. Otherwise, Song Jinghuan seriously suspected that he would keep an eye on her even when she slept.
Meng Wu had long found out what had happened outside Xiao Qirui’s tent from his subordinates. When he heard that Song Huan was requesting an audience, his face darkened.
“I’m dealing with military matters. Ask him to wait outside,” he said coldly.
This meant that he was going to leave that brat hanging.
The deputy general guarding the side did as he was told and went out to pass the message.
Meng Wu sneered. “Arrogant brat, you don’t know the immensity of heaven and earth.”
He made up his mind to let Song Jinghuan stand under the hot sun for a few hours. Unexpectedly, not long after the deputy general went out, Song Jinghuan deliberately raised his voice.
“Since General Meng is busy, I’ll come back later.”
Meng Wu’s face darkened. He was so angry that his hand was trembling. He said sternly, “Let him in.”
There was a moment of silence outside. The curtain was lifted and Song Jinghuan walked in.
Meng Wu put down his brush and looked up at her. He asked despite knowing the answer, “Why are you looking for me?”
Song Jinghuan blinked and cupped his hands. “My previous words were inappropriate. I said that I wanted to replace General Meng. General Xiao asked me to apologize to General Meng.”
Meng Wu choked. Was this brat really stupid or was he pretending to be stupid?
Was he just apologizing because General Xiao asked him to apologize? If Xiao Qirui didn’t say anything, would he think that he hadn’t done anything wrong?
Song Jinghuan thought to herself, “That’s not it. Even if General Xiao said so, I still don’t think I did anything wrong.”
Meng Wu inexplicably understood what he meant. The anger in his heart intensified.What’s wrong with that?” Song Jinghuan’s eyes lit up. “General is right.”
This person finally said something human.
Meng Wu was speechless.
He felt that he would definitely have a stroke if he spoke to this person again, so he stopped talking and put down the pen in his hand to narrow his eyes at him.
“Hurry up and apologize, then get lost.” he thought.
Song Jinghuan tilted her head and looked at him innocently. She stood rooted to the ground without saying a word.
Meng Wu was speechless. “What the hell are you doing here?” he thought.
Song Jinghuan thought to himself, “Didn’t you say that I didn’t do anything wrong? Since I didn’t do anything wrong, there’s naturally no need to apologize. ”
The two of them stared at each other for a long time. Meng Wu was so angry that his blood surged. He noticed something and was stunned. He asked, “I remember that you’re from Chang’an.”
These eyes were too similar to the talented youth in his memory.
Just now, he even thought that that person was standing in front of him.
However, how was that possible? The last time he saw that young man was ten years ago. At that time, the young man was already ten years old.
Although it had been many years, anyone who had seen him would never forget him.
The problem was that not only did their ages not match, but if that young man really came to Nanling Pass, how could he be a mere soldier?
With how important that person was to the new emperor, he wouldn’t be surprised if he was asked to be the grand marshal.
He clearly knew that Song Huan wasn’t him, but he couldn’t shake off this thought. The more he looked at the “boy” in front of him, the more he felt that the two of them looked alike.
He suddenly remembered that Xiao Qirui seemed to treat Song Huan specially. Meng Wu’s heart trembled. There were so many soldiers in the army. He did not think that Xiao Qirui would pay attention to a child for no reason.
This person’s surname was also Song!
