“Do you know why she let you go first?” Old Zhang thought for a while and said to Tong Yan, “Because if she had played first, you wouldn’t have anything to shoot, just like what happened.”
Having said that, he couldn’t help but remember the last time in the neighboring city.
Pan Mingyue’s shooting skills had been unique even in the first district.
Weighing the 20 bags in his hand, he quickly left, afraid that Lu Zhaoying wouldn’t wait for him.
After he left, the whole room fell into deep silence, and almost everyone’s breathing seemed restrained. In the silence, a faint voice said, “Did you guys see clearly just now?”
“It happened so quickly,” said another person quietly. “Old Hu, you and Third Gu both entered the barracks. Did you see clearly?”
“It was terrifying.” Old Hu was still staring straight ahead and gave three simple words.
As soon as the professional said this, the air choked in the other people’s throats seemed to release like a punctured balloon, and the atmosphere immediately relaxed. “Oh my God, I almost stopped breathing just now. Old Hu, is everyone in the special training camp like that? Their evil spirits are so heavy!”
“F*ck, it happened in just a few seconds. Did you see it? I couldn’t even see it, it was just like watching a movie, and the ropes broke in an instant.”
“Based on her speed and accuracy, she should be from that place, right?”
“Third Gu, didn’t you say that she didn’t know how to play?”
The room continued chatting about the scene just now until Gu Mingsheng coughed. Everyone else suddenly remembered that Tong Yan was still there.
Thinking of this, they inevitably turned their eyes to her.
They all remembered that Tong Yan had provoked Pan Mingyue first.
These people admired Tong Yan very much usually. Indeed, she was impressive and surpassed most men.
However, compared to the situation just now, most people could only think of one thing—
She had been crushed!
Of course, they had a good relationship with Tong Yan and would definitely have comforted her and hyped her up in the past. However, compared to the scene just now, they really couldn’t find a word of comfort.
What could they say?
In the past, Tong Yan could barely hit two or three prizes at most, and it had been under multiple attempts.
But what about Pan Mingyue? Holding two air guns, she had hit all 20 targets within one minute.
How could she compare?
Was it even possible?
Could they go against their conscience and scold Pan Mingyue?
Tong Yan herself was in disbelief.
“Yan Yan, you should have seen how perverted her skills are. I’m afraid no one in the first district can defeat her, so it’s not embarrassing to lose to her either…” Old Hu scratched his head and comforted her.
Under everyone’s stare, Tong Yan’s face turned from black to green, and after listening to Old Hu’s words, her face turned from green to white. Finally, she staggered out of the room without saying anything.
After she left, Gu Mingsheng knocked Old Hu’s head fiercely. “You call that comforting her? Aren’t you just adding fuel to the fire?! Are you poking fun at her?”
Old Hu frowned. “Then, what could I have said? Everyone obviously saw what happened, they’re not on the same level. She provoked her first, but look at what happened. It can only be regarded as a lesson for her. There’s always someone better.”
Gu Mingsheng was speechless for a while, and he finally said dryly after a long while, “Where did Young Master Lu find this Great God?”
In the Lu family’s house.
Lu Zhaoying opened his collection room and revealed a pile of things inside.
He opened the wooden box and showed her the DSLR inside. “It’s here.”
Pan Mingyue looked at the DSLR, then went to look at other things inside.
There were very old wooden horses and various model toys inside. She glanced past them and took a look at a book covered in glass not far away.
Three big characters were written on it with a brush—
[Three Character Classic]
The handwriting was a little familiar, but a bit immature.
“This is the first gift Master Juan gave me.” Seeing her attention in the book, Lu Zhaoying was silent for a moment, and then weakly explained, “He wrote it himself.”
Pan Mingyue nodded. No wonder the handwriting looked so familiar.
She flipped through the book and finally couldn’t help but ask, “Why did he give you this book?”
Lu Zhaoying naturally changed the subject. “… It’s nothing. Hey, look at this instead, it’s a little yellow duck. I fought with Jiang Dongye back then for this.”
Pan Mingyue noted this down and prepared to ask Cheng Juan when she had a chance.
Then, she looked at the things that Lu Zhaoying introduced to her one by one. While listening, she could almost imagine him playing with these things.
Finally, she noticed a wooden box tucked in the corner.
It looked handmade, and the lid was closed, making it even more attractive to her. She turned to Lu Zhaoying and asked, “Can I look at that box?”
Usually very easygoing, Lu Zhaoying was suddenly silent for a while.
“I…” Upon seeing his reaction, Pan Mingyue was about to tell him to forget it, when Lu Zhaoying walked over with ease again. “You can, but don’t regret it.”
While talking, he opened the box and let Pan Mingyue look at it with a smile.
Pan Mingyue raised an eyebrow and walked over.
The box was very large, with a stack of gift boxes neatly placed in rows.
The first one in the first row was a pink box with a sticky note on it—
[One-year-old Mingyue, happy birthday. it was a pleasure to meet you.]
[16-year-old Mingyue, don’t be sad.]
[17-year-old Mingyue, I want to give you the whole world. I hope you get better soon.]
[18-year-old Mingyue, you’ve changed majors from liberal arts to science. It must be tough on you.]
[19-year-old Mingyue, hello.]
