After dinner, Quan Zongrui personally took Yun Xi and Xiao Jinglin back to the hotel.
Before Yun Xi got out of the car, Quan Zongrui handed her a file containing a fresh piece of information.
“I just got these.
Inside this contains all that happened in Muyang around that time.
Since that was your mothers last known location, we should start there.
However, it has been eighteen years since, and itll be tough to get much information from that time, but that doesnt mean there isnt any hope at all.”
“I see…” That was the conclusion that Yun Xi came up with as well.
Since everything began in Muyang, they might be able to find some crumbs back there.
After getting out of the car, Yun Xi turned to look at Xiao Jinglin.
“Have you found out who targeted my mother back then Did you get any information out of them”
Xiao Jinglin let out a sigh and explained, “Weve caught all of the rebels back then and interrogated them.
We followed the information they gave us, but all of them ended up in dead ends.
The people that the rebels sent after Rong Rong are gone as well, presumably dead since the guards protecting her at that time were all very experienced fighters.
Whats confusing is, if theyre still alive, why no information on Rong Rong and the guards can be found Of course, there might be another possibility, but I just cant bring myself to think of that.
Id rather lie to myself if that makes me feel better…”
Under any normal circumstances, people would think of the best possible outcome.
They would not try to think of the opposite.
“Well, now that we have Aunt Lin with us, we should head to Muyang tomorrow.
She was involved in the incident eighteen years ago.
Well follow any trails we have so we shouldnt give up just yet.
Mu Feichi has a base in Muyang so Ill notify him and get his intelligence unit there to help us.”
Yun Xi had already thought of a plan before Xiao Jinglin even came up with one.
He was both surprised and proud of her decisiveness.
Xiao Jinglin stopped and had a gentle smile on his face.
“Well, I can see the difference between you and your mother now.
She was the young miss of the Rong family and was well-loved.
She didnt have to decide anything back then.
Unlike her, you are very decisive, just like Jinzhi.”
“Maybe because Ive been by his side for too long.
I have to admit that there are a lot of good things that I can learn from him.”
Xiao Jinglin nodded, agreeing that Mu Feichi was an outstanding and responsible young man.
No matter his personality or his background, he was perfectly suited for Yun Xi.
The only downside was that he was a military man, an identity that would make his woman suffer one way or another.
“Hes the Young Commander.
If you date him, there are a lot of things youll have to bear alone, and there will be times when youll have to see him off as he heads into battle.
There are also a lot of times when he wont be able to stay by your side.”
Other than Mu Feichis military identity, Xiao Jinglin was very satisfied with his future son-in-law.
Yun Xi stopped and looked at the man who was worried for his daughter.
She could see all the worry and pain in his eyes.
Compared to the cold attitude Yun Yuanfeng had toward her, she could feel her fathers love.
“Thats what I like about him.
Hes a decorated soldier, ruthless, courageous, and persistent.
Ive decided to stand by his side, and Im ready to take on any responsibility he has to bear with him.
Other than that, nothing really worries me.
Im a grown lady now, not a child that needs protection anymore.
We eventually have to give up something to gain something.”
“Seriously, you…” Xiao Jinglin had no idea how to argue with that.
His daughter was much stronger—both in her heart and mind—than he thought.
He was worried for her, but he also felt helpless for not being able to help her in that regard.
