Chapter 18: Military Training

Gu Xia didn’t know whether to laugh or cry when he saw this message.

Pursue her? How would he do that?

Gu Xia felt that Tu Sisi had given him a difficult problem.

Was there anything more nonsensical than pursuing your wife again?

Shouldn’t they just make an appointment for a room and have a nice roll on the bed together?

Gu Xia felt that his head was starting to hurt, and it seemed necessary to read some books like Thirty-Six Strategies for Pursuing Girls.


After Gu Xia left, Tu Sisi finally got her parents to calm down after a while of coaxing. Just after returning to the room, before she could catch her breath, her sister came in.

“He he he~”

Tu Fangfang’s strange laughter seemed really harsh in Tu Sisi’s ears!

“If you have anything to say, just say it quickly, don’t act so weird, or I’ll tell our parents that you have a boyfriend at work.” Tu Sisi threatened with anger and feeling that it was quite funny.

“Don’t! We haven’t determined our relationship yet, you can’t be so cruel!” Tu Fangfang immediately begged for mercy.

“Hmph~” Tu Sisi gave her a blank look and sneered.

“Sisi, that kid just now is really pursuing you?” Tu Fangfang asked.

“Of course, your sister is so beautiful, isn’t it normal for someone to pursue her? Do you need to make such a fuss?” Tu Sisi said angrily.

“But you’re only in high school, and you’re going to take the university entrance examination next year. It’s not a wise choice to fall in love at this time! Our parents will definitely oppose it,  they just fooled you for now, because they don’t want to quarrel. And you see, they will definitely keep an eye on you in the days to come.” Tu Fangfang’s analysis was quite accurate.

“Just let them watch~” Tu Sisi said nonchalantly.



In the next room, Tu Sisi’s parents were discussing this matter.

“Jianguo! In the blink of an eye, our children have grown up, and Sisi even has suitors.” Tang Chunhua sighed.

“Hehe, we are getting old.” Tu Jianguo said, hugging his wife.

“What do you think of him today…that Gu Xia?” Tang Chunhua asked.

“That kid is alright, although a little reckless. But who was not reckless when they were young? It’s just that Sisi is going to take the university entrance examination next year. I don’t want her to fall in love at this time. Although some junior high school students have started falling in love now, but It’s the same as playing house. Just take a look at your nephew. At the age of sixteen, he made someone pregnant and was forced to get married. And look at how they are living now. Just two days ago your brother called me to borrow money and said that all his money was used to support his son.” Tu Jianguo said earnestly.

“Well, I talked to Sisi just now, and she also promised that she would not fall in love with that Gu Xia before the university entrance examination.” Tang Chunhua said slowly.

“Well, I hope so!” Tu Jianguo sighed. “Okay, it’s getting late, wife, let’s go to bed!”

“What are you doing, you shameless old man.”


As soon as Gu Xia entered the dormitory, he heard Wang Qun’s joking voice, “Our third bro is back? I haven’t seen you all day today, did you go to pick up girls?”

“There is a girl, but even if I want to pick, it’s not so easy!” Gu Xia laughed.

“I just asked casually, but I didn’t expect that there really is a girl! Haha, how is she? Is she pretty?” Wang Qun said strangely.

Liu Shu and Li Wen also looked at Gu Xia after hearing this.

“She’s not from our university, but she’s pretty, but I haven’t got her yet.” Gu Xia touched his nose and said.

“It’s good to have a goal, but I don’t even have a goal yet!” Liu Shu said quietly from the side.


Gu Xia didn’t argue with them, it was quite late, so he picked up the towel and went to take a bath. After taking a bath, the four of them talked for a while, and then they all went to sleep. After all, there will be military training the next morning.

Gu Xia was looking forward to tomorrow’s military training.

Now that there was a chance to experience something new, Gu Xia was naturally very excited.

Before going to bed, Gu Xia sent Tu Sisi a good night message. After waiting for a while, he didn’t get a reply for the message. She had probably fallen asleep. Gu Xia also put down his phone and closed his eyes to sleep.

Early in the next morning, Gu Xia got up, woke the three of them up, then quickly brushed his teeth and washed his face, put on his camouflage uniform, and went to the training ground together.

The military training was not the same as Gu Xia imagined. It was very boring. They practiced standing posture all day. In addition, the sun was also very merciless. There were some people who directly fainted from heat stroke.

Back at the dormitory in the evening, everyone went straight to sleep, after all, they were too tired.

Just like that, a month passed in a blink of an eye.

Today was the last day of military training, and tomorrow was the National Day holiday. Everyone breathed a sigh of relief and was discussing where to go on this National Day.

And during this month, Gu Xia and Tu Sisi had not met each other. After all, Tu Sisi’s third-year curriculum was very tight, and Gu Xia didn’t have time to go to see Tu Sisi after the military training every day. But, they did communicate a lot via text messages.

Tu Sisi didn’t like to use QQ that much, and every time he sent text messages, that also made Gu Xia’s phone bill skyrocket.

The instructor had informed them that each department would collaborate to hold a social gathering in the evening on the last day of the military training, which was also a tradition of Jiangbei University.

This news made all the boys excited, because it meant that there would be many girls!

Gu Xia looked at the rows of boys around him, all with their hair combed and shiny, with smiles on their faces.

This was the last day of the military training. In the evening, he saw a circle around the playground and it was full of people. The middle of the training ground was lit brightly with lights. And everyone’s faces were full of smiles.

Gu Xia, Wang Qun, and Liu Shu sat together, while Li Wen went to the Foreign Language Department to find his girlfriend.

The chief instructor stood in the middle and shouted, “Students, be quiet and listen to me.”

Seeing that everyone was quiet, the chief instructor said with satisfaction, “I won’t say polite words, and I believe everyone also doesn’t like listening to them. Every year we go to different universities for military training, and I can’t remember just how many freshmen we have managed to inspire to join the military. But, as the saying goes, there is always next year. It’s always good to have hope right?”

The instructor smiled when he saw everyone looking at him curiously and said, “That is, I hope everyone can join our Army after graduating from university. Those who are interested can join. The army needs fresh blood, and it needs highly knowledgeable talents. Of course, I hope that no matter whether you join the army or work, you will contribute to our motherland, and always remember your roots!”

The last sentence was almost roared by the instructor.

“Everyone can consider what I said, and if you don’t want to, just take it as a joke…” The chief instructor said.

“Okay, I am talking too much, I see that many people are impatient. Then I will hand it over to our beautiful instructor and let her take over from here.”
