"Yes, he is your father," Ling Lan smiled as she replied.
Liu Aijun looked at Liu Furong again. He slowly walked over and asked with uncertainty, "Are… are you really my daddy?"
Liu Furong quickly knelt down on one knee and looked at the anticipation in the little boy's eyes, but he could also see that the little boy was a little frightened that his hopes would be dashed too. Liu Furong suddenly felt a wave of regret washing over his heart. He could always proudly held his head up high to everyone, but his wife and children he just could not put up the courage to even look them in the eyes.
"Yes, I'm your father." Liu Furong had tears in his eyes as he nodded.
"Daddy!" Liu Aijun rushed over and hugged Liu Furong's neck. He started crying loudly. He was no longer a child without a father.
Ling Lan had brought Aunt Liu and the other three people over. She pushed Liu Aihua who had turned stiff and whispered, "Little Aihua, hurry up and go to your father."
Liu Aihua moved step by step towards the two people that were hugging each other. Liu Furong looked up when he felt someone standing beside him. It was his daughter whom he always thought about for the past ten years. She was looking at him hopeful eyes too.
"Aihua, my good daughter." Liu Furong hugged Liu Aihua instantly. He hugged his two children tightly. He felt fortunate that he was able to see them again.
Liu Furong controlled his excitement. He consoled his children and then stood up. He looked at Aunt Liu whose eyes were red. He said in a low voice, "Ah Yun." He was fortunate to have met this woman who had given birth to his children and sacrificed her youth for him.
"Zhongguo…" Aunt Liu called out to him. Suddenly, her face turned pale. She gritted her teeth and turned away her face. This man had lied to her for more than ten years. How could she still trust him?
"My surname is Liu and my given name is Furong. I'm currently a soldier. I'm the team leader of team 02 from 250 Ace Mecha Clan. My rank is a senior colonel. Most importantly, I'm sorry that I lied to you." Liu Furong told Aunt Liu his identity honestly. He didn't want to lie anymore to this woman whom he wanted to spend his future with. However, in order to protect Wang Qi, he had no choice but to lie in the past.
"Fu… Furong." Aunt Liu called Liu Furong's real name with some difficulty.
"Yes. Ah Yun, you're Liu Furong's wife. You've always been my wife." Liu Furong rushed forward and hugged the woman who had been living a hard life for the past ten years, all because of him. He would no longer throw them aside. Even if the path ahead was filled with danger, he would bring them along.
Liu Furong's family had finally been reunited. Ling Lan had saved everyone she wanted to save so she decided to leave. Her body started turning translucent.
"Regiment commander!" The moment Ling Lan moved, Liu Furong detected it. He shouted and stopped Ling Lan.
"So, you're the powerful regiment commander who Furong always talked about," Aunt Liu said in surprise.
Ling Lan looked at Liu Furong helplessly. She wanted him to explain to his wife that she wasn't the regiment commander he always talked about.
Liu Furong gave her a pleading look. He hoped that Ling Lan could acknowledge herself as the regiment commander his wife was talking about. After all, she was his regiment commander now.
"I'm afraid that your real name is not Jiang Hui, right?" Luo Yi said after some thought. When Liu Furong said that he was from 250 Ace Mecha Clan, Luo Yi recalled the battle on Planet Haijiao which the Federation had been promoting furiously. He still remembered that the mecha clan that gained the most merits was 250 Ace Mecha Clan and that their regiment commander was someone called Ling Lan.
"Yes." When Ling Lan met Liu Furong, she knew that she wouldn't be able to hide her identity anymore. "My name is Ling Lan."
"The son of Ling Xiao." Liu Furong added. He was telling Luo Yi that Ling Lan could be trusted.
"The son of Ling Xiao." Luo Yi was dumbstruck. Everyone in the military knew who Ling Xiao was. That year, they were all indignant at Ling Xiao's passing. They even requested to take revenge for him. So, no one expected Ling Xiao to come back alive again.
"If it's General Ling Xiao, there won't be any problems." That year, when they were betrayed by their own people, Ling Xiao was still 'dead'. This meant that he wasn't the culprit.
"I won't interfere with your business, so you don't have to tell me anything." Ling Lan felt the direction of this conversation was going weirdly when she heard Liu Furong's words. She immediately stated her stand.
Suddenly, Liu Furong pulled the ordinary-looking necklace around Liu Aihua's chest and threw it at Ling Lan.
Ling Lan caught it in the air and asked coldly, "What is this?"
"That thing is useless to us, and since I'm a part of 250 Ace Mecha Clan now, I should pass it to my regiment commander." Liu Furong smiled. He looked like a sly old fox that succeeded in his scheme.
Ling Lan gritted her teeth in anger. 'I came here to relax. Why did I have to face so much trouble on my holiday?' Ling Lan didn't know what this thing in her hand was, but it was definitely troublesome.
However, she couldn't reject Liu Furong after what he said. This item looked old and had nothing to do with her. Yet, it belonged to someone in her mecha clan so she definitely had to do something about it.
Ling Lan squeezed the item tightly. The old and rusty outer shell crumbled apart, revealing a grey oval-shaped object.
"Boss, let me inspect this thing." Little Four could sense that this was something special so he got excited.
Ling Lan picked up the grey object with her fingers. She dangled it above her eyes, pretending to observe it carefully. In actual fact, it was to make it easier for Little Four to inspect the object.
"Boss, I didn't expect it to be that." After a few seconds, Little Four exclaimed in surprise.
"What on earth is it?" Ling Lan was interested. This was something that someone from the higher authorities wanted. He even sacrificed an entire elite titled super mecha clan to get this thing.
"This is the material that can be used to make a body for intelligent entities like me. It can also be used to make the communicator for domain realm masters." Little Four told Ling Lan what he found out.
"It's that thing." Ling Lan's interest got perked.
"A material to make the communicator for domain realm masters…" Ling Lan held the item in her hand. "If it's only a small piece like this, no one would be tempted."
"I can't hide anything from you, regiment commander." Liu Furong didn't expect Ling Lan to know what the item was immediately. "If it was just this piece, no one would be tempted. But, what if it is an entire mine?"
Ling Lan's heart pounded furiously when he heard this and blood started rushing up to her head.
At first, Ling Lan was nonchalant about the whole situation. However, now, she was really tempted. She wanted to give Little Four and her instructors a real body but the material that was needed to do that was one of the most precious resources of the military. Ling Lan didn't have the power to get any of it. Hence, when she heard that there was an entire mine filled with that material, she was really tempted.
