Chapter 7


The Beta Lieutenant Colonel who died for his country (7)


Translated by: Niladri


Lu Heng, who returned to the starship, forgot to give Xiu Yi Te a brain checkup. He was anxious to repair his own light brain. The problem of Xiu Yi Te’s brain was left behind. Anyway, Xiu Yi Te generally relies on instinct to act. The problem of the brain is not very important.


“Adjutant Reiner, this light brain chip has been completely scrapped.”The communications soldiers put down the tools in their hands.


“Can’t you fix it?”


The communications officer shook his head: “I immediately applied for the new adjutant-level light brain. During this period, I could only replace it with a standard light brain.”


“How long does it take to get a new light brain?” Lu Heng frowned.


“It takes at least one month to complete the process. The efficiency of the logistics department has been so low. I have complained several times…” The communications officer is usually quite loquacious. Lu Heng asked a few words and he tried to assuage him. He didn’t stop complaining until someone kicked him from under the table.


Suddenly appearing in front of him was a strict and severe adjutant Reiner, the communications soldier emitted cold sweat: “Yes, sorry, adjutant Reiner. Are you in a hurry, I can, I can…”


Lu Heng stared at his eyes for a long time and saw the big man stutter for half a day. He didn’t stare anymore: “You will inform me immediately after the new light brain arrives.”


After solving the problem of the light brain, the next step is to fulfill the previous promise. In just a few days after returning, Xiu Yi Te has sent dozens of newsletters, all about when to practice. Lu Heng didn’t want to be killed by CALL again. He just invited him to practice today.


When Lu Heng arrived at the training room, Xiu Yi Te was already waiting inside. Outside the training room, there was also a group of people who were excited and looked forward to the match.


“Can you open the field projection to project [our fight]?” Lu Heng walked in, and the door of the training room behind him slowly closed.


“Those who are ignorant, have no need to spectate.” Xiu Yi Te was sullen because he rarely practiced with Lu Heng. He didn’t want too many unrelated gentlemen to watch.


Lu Heng did not mind whether there were people watching: “The people in the team are so motivated, you should feel happy. What kind do you want to practice, mechs or close combat.”


“First close combat and then mech?” Xiu Yi Te became somewhat greedy.


“I don’t have that much time.” Lu Heng ruthlessly refused.


“Little Nana, you reject me again.” Xiu Yi Te was frustrated. “There are no tasks recently, nothing to do.”


“If our commander did not detest desk job so much, I would have not been so busy.” Lu Heng took a look at Xiu Yi Te.


Hearing that, Xiu Yi Te did not dare to say anything more. He is really not good at handling paperwork, and some paperwork that should have been handled by the commander has fallen on Lu Heng’s shoulder. However, he has no other way. The paperwork involves a lot of meticulous things. Apart from Lu Heng, he does not trust others.


Xiu Yi Te smiled: “It will be a close combat.”


Lu Heng nodded and threw the military uniform to the side, loosened the two shirt buttons and pulled the sleeves onto the elbows. Despite Xiu Yi Te’s unwillingness to open the field projections, while teaching physical training [to observers], they began the fight unceremoniously.


The indoor training was intense, and the mood outside was very high.


“Wow, some people can play with the commander for so long without falling into the wind! The last time, commander gave me pointers, he took me down in ten minutes.”


“I really didn’t expect that the adjutant Reiner who usually looks gentle and can hit like this.”


“Maybe the commander is letting him…”


“That is, adjutant Reiner, a logistical personnel. If he accidentally smothered him, the high-level military officers may interfere and no one in wind and thunder would be able to shoulder that blame.” A malicious voice sounded.


There was a burst of laughter in the crowd.


The two people in the training room could not hear the outside discussion. Lu Heng and Xiu Yi Te knew each other very well and all their strengths.


Avoiding the one-side kick of Xiu Yi Te, Lu Heng took advantage of the ground to leave a deep footprint. He soared and bent his knees to the face of Xiu Yi Te. Xiu Yi Te raised his hand very quickly, and his arm was held in front of his face. He took a great blow from this force, and the whole person was pushed forward by a huge thrust for a long distance.


In just a few minutes, the two exchanged moves with each other a hundred times. The people watching the outside were shocked and stunned. Those who were even weaker could only see a picture of the afterimage. They had a clear understanding of Lu Heng’s strength.


“Adjutant Reiner is so strong, he seems to be really equal to the commander…”


“That time he even left a footprint on the ground, this is the highest rank training room, and I can’t leave a trace of my full force attack.”


As time went by, the high-intensity battle made both Lu Heng and Xiu Yi Te start to have ragged breaths. A drop of sweat dripped down Lu Heng’s forehead, and a few wisps of hair blocked his eyes. After getting a break, Lu Heng single-handedly turned his hair back, and the neatly combed hair became messy, and even the two-ice cold eyes were sparkling a little.


Lu Heng looked at Xiu Yi Te, and saw that he seemed to be in a daze. He reminded him: “Don’t be distracted, you actually made this kind of low-level mistake.”


When Xiu Yi Te recovered, he pressed the button and closed the field projection: “Today was really fun, I haven’t played so hard for a long time. Little Nana, then you have to be careful.”


From Xiu Yi Te’s gesture, Lu Heng knew his next move, which was a very familiar trick. When they were at the military academy, they had practiced like this thousands of times. Lu Heng’s body moved forward as if it had its own memory. Realizing they were touching, Xiu Yi Te raised his eyebrows and smiled: “It’s awkward.”


This pairing practice ended with Lu Heng and Xiu Yi Te on the ground. Lu Heng’s chest was heaving violently up and down, and the long fingers of Xiu Yi Te were pressed on it, and the two men were quietly facing each other. This strange atmosphere was broken by a drop of sweat. The naughty sweat-drop dripped along the lines of Xiu Yi Te’s well-defined chin and fell on Lu Heng’s lips. Xiu Yi Te raised his hand subconsciously, trying to erase the sweat, with some inexplicable embarrassment.


Lu Heng turned his head and avoided Xiu Yi Te’s rough fingers on his cheeks and said “You can get up.”


Xiu Yi Te turned over and lay on his back on the ground. Lu Heng did not want to move, and he was almost worthy of training with Xiu Yi Te, who was the first in the league. He had consumed too much mental and physical strength. He rarely indulged himself to let go of his image, lying on the ground.


“The last time I was interrupted by Carlo in the shelter. You have been busy since you came back. Can you answer that question now?” asked Xiu Yi Te.


Lu Heng thought about it, but some did not know where to start. Xiu Yi Te did not interrupt his thoughts, waiting quietly for him to speak. In fact, Lu Heng was thinking, is this a good time? The client asked for clearing the misunderstanding of Xiu Yi Te, and the reason for the alienation of Reiner and Xiu Yi Te must be made known to Xiu Yi Te. But making it known to him, should be done by grasping an excellent opportunity. Lu Heng always felt that it was not suitable time yet.


An emergency communication saved the entangled Lu Heng. After Xiu Yi Te finished reading, he said to Lu Heng: “After an hour, come to the combat command room. The analysis of the star road map has important findings.”


[He] took a shower in the cabin and rested a little. Lu Heng walked out of the hatch and prepared to go to the combat command room, but saw an uninvited guest sitting in the door of the cabin. Lu Heng felt that the temple had some faint pain.


“Adjutant Reiner.”


Carlo, who was only 28 years old, was young and has always been as vibrant as the morning sun. He liked to laugh, his smile was very infectious, and the air around him was light and sweet. There were plenty of his admirers in wind and thunder.


But this Carlo in front of him, his face pale and almost translucent, like a little deer, had two big dark circles under his clear eyes, his lips were blanched, almost like a dead person. If he was seen by his admirers, they would be too busy to accept all his requests, just to make him smile again.


Unfortunately, Lu Heng was not an admirer of Carlo, he only felt he was a little troublesome.


Seeing Lu Heng, Carlo was happy to stand up, and because he had to maintain the same posture for too long, his legs crumbled and he almost fell to the ground again.


Lu Heng stepped forward to support Carlo’s arm, but he took advantage of Lu Heng’s hand: “Adjutant reiner, I beg you…”


“Sorry, Carlo, I am in a hurry.” Lu Heng interrupted Carlo’s next long story. If he let him go on, he couldn’t get away for a few hours. Lu Heng used his power to get rid of him.


Unexpectedly, Carlo suddenly became emotionally excited. He even landed on his knees and hugged Lu Heng’s leg: “Adjutant Reiner, if you don’t agree with my request, I won’t get up!”


Lu Heng felt that the temple was about to explode. He was really not good at dealing with this personality. No matter what you are talking about or whether you are listening or not, you are always immersed in your own world and logic. However, in terms of Reiner’s character, it is easy to solve the situation at hand.


Lu Heng looked awkward and shouted: “Second class private Carlo Meg! Your current behavior is simply besmirching the honour of the Alliance soldiers!”


Lu Heng, who has never seen such a strong voice, was rooted to the same place.


“Stand up! This is an order!” Looking at Carlo’s standing up, Lu Heng did not want to say anything to him, turned and left.


Looking at the back of Lu Heng, Carlo felt very wronged. Adjutant Reiner was too inhuman. Although he was an Omega, his ability was not worse than Beta, as long as he gave him a chance to prove himself.


“Carlo, what’s wrong with you?” The sound of the spring breeze sounded behind Carlo.


Carlo turned and saw the handsome man with brown hair, “Andrew…”


When the words were not finished, the tears in Carol’s eyes finally fell. Not weak, but Andrew has always been very gentle to him. When he saw Andrew that instance, he felt like he saw an elder brother. If he had an elder brother, at this time, he would have definitely comforted him.


“Cute little Carlo, may I have the honor to invite you to the restaurant?” Bending his waist, the gentlemanly Andrew exhorted. “I heard that today’s dessert is good.”
