Duan Hengye involuntarily opened the box, and then took the medal out of it. This medal, made of an unknown material, was only a little bit small, and it was slightly cool in the palm of his hand.
Meng Jinhuai’s voice just now wasn’t very loud, and the person in charge of the school standing across from them only faintly heard the words “Remember?”. . But the viewers of the live channel was different, the busy working hovering cameras were powerful, Meng Jinhuai’s words were clearly recorded.
Anyone who was interested in the story of Duan Hengye and Meng Jinhuai knew that they met many years ago and since then, the marshal had never forgotten. Suddenly the “love at first sight” romance story had a sequel, even the people who wanted to pay attention to the situation through the live broadcast had forgotten the main reason for them coming to the school.
The viewers were itching for a response from Duan Hengye, and everyone was waiting for it. The only person who was more nervous than the audience …… was Duan Hengye himself.
There was a small pin on the back of the medallion, which was slightly pricked when placed in his hand. After getting it, Duan Hengye casually turned the medal over after taking a glance at it. This was originally just an ordinary little action, but immediately afterward, all the interstellar billions of viewers saw …… Duan Hengye suddenly stare at it, and the hand holding the medallion also trembled slightly.
One had to know that even in that day’s life and death situation, Duan Hengye’s facial expression management hadn’t made any major mistakes.
“What’s wrong?” Meng Jinhuai, who was standing at one side, asked softly.
The man’s question temporarily pulled back Duan Hengye’s thoughts that had already flown far away, he slowly clutched the medallion tightly, then steadied his breathing and said, “Nothing… Thank you …….”
Duan Hengye could be heard between his words, his breathing was very unsteady. For the first time, Meng Jinhuai took a deep look at the other party, and he didn’t smile at Duan Hengye like he used to, but nodded his head in an unusually flat manner.
This atmosphere wasn’t right! Very wrong!
Duan Hengye’s trembling was too obvious when he spoke just now, but anyone who saw this image couldn’t ignore it. For those who were familiar with Duan Hengye and Meng Jinhuai’s way of getting along with each other, they even noticed that something was very wrong with their state.
But unfortunately, this event wouldn’t be broadcasted live. Before, that attack incident was considered a large-scale live broadcast Star Network accident, after the event, the marshal’s residence as well as the imperial side had contacted the live broadcast responsible at that time. The media, who had just been hammered by the imperial hierarchy because of the live broadcast incident, were naturally not foolish, and after seeing the wrong expressions on the two, they made a quick decision to stop the live broadcast when they smelled something different.
The ratings were important, but in the end, they couldn’t compare to the live broadcast qualification ……
The people who were watching the live broadcast only noticed that the live countdown in the corner of the light screen was clearly more than ten minutes away, but the picture was cut off hard here.
So what was the anomaly with these two? The more they couldn’t see, the more curious they were, and when the Star’s live signal went down “due to a glitch”, the discussion board exploded instantly.
At this time on the Tize Star, the school director who also felt the strange anger between the husband and husband didn’t dare to let out a single breath.
While the people around them were nervously waiting for Meng Jinhuai’s reaction, they didn’t think that Lord Marshal never said anything again. He walked towards the building according to the original process, while Duan Hengye, who was standing beside Meng Jinhuai, paused for a moment, then slowly clutched the medallion in his hand, releasing it again.
The irregular shape of this medallion imprinted a distinct red mark on Duan Hengye’s hand, and he looked down at it again. Only a small Chinese character was engraved on the back of the medal just above it.
A little more carefully, one would be able to recognize this character as “heng”.
The point was – this “heng” character was not an ordinary print! Rather, it was …… Duan Hengye’s own handwriting.
The moment he saw it, a chill suddenly spread from his palm towards Duan Hengye’s entire body. In his last life, Duan Hengye was born in an ancient martial arts family, and his calligraphy had grown from elementary school to college. Over the past twenty years, Duan Hengye had already developed a font with a strong personal style.
Although the character “Heng” wasn’t considered obscure, it definitely couldn’t be said to be common either. If Duan Hengye’s memory wasn’t wrong, he should have never written this character anywhere since he transmigrated into this world.
So why did a medal given to Meng Jinhuai by the original owner more than ten years ago have his own character on it?
Duan Hengye couldn’t figure it out no matter what.
From the moment he got that medallion, Duan Hengye was visibly distracted. He put the box that was originally used to hold the medal into his coat pocket and still clutched it tightly in his hand. It was because he was trying too hard, but in just a short while, Duan Hengye’s palm was pierced with a circle of bruises.
At this time, the two had already entered the school’s history room, and Duan Hengye saw the person in charge’s mouth talking about something, but his ears were not listening to anything. At this time, Meng Jinhuai, who had been listening carefully, suddenly stopped, then – turned around and looked at Duan Hengye.
Duan Hengye’s absent-mindedness was too obvious, and it was hard for the few reception staff around not to notice. But due to the other party’s identity, and the strange aura between him and Meng Jinhuai, a few people were entitled to pretend that they couldn’t see it. Now that they saw Meng Jinhuai stop, the staff member who was explaining immediately stopped what he was saying, then took a look at his colleague and silently took two steps backward.
Unexpectedly, the dreadful scene they had imagined didn’t appear.
Meng Jinhuai turned around and sighed softly towards Duan Hengye, then he took two steps forward and stood opposite Duan Hengye. This distance was too close, and the person beside Duan Hengye moved to the side.
Before he had a chance to say anything, he saw the Marshal slowly take Duan Hengye’s hand that was clutching the medallion and pull it up.
Meng Jinhuai’s hand was dry and warm, contrasting sharply with Duan Hengye’s cold body temperature. “Be careful with your hand.” The Marshal’s tone was still the same as before, and after hearing his words, Duan Hengye’s fingers clutching the medallion couldn’t help but relax a little. Taking this opportunity, Meng Jinhuai gently pulled his fingers upwards, then took the medallion out.
“The palm of your hand is already bruised”, Meng Jinhuai said after taking a look at it, “Remember to deal with it later.” He then handed the medal back to Duan Hengye again.
The tour continued, but miraculously, ever since Meng Jinhuai had removed the medallion from Duan Hengye’s hand, he had finally come out of the state of delirium he had just been in. Duan Hengye slowly put the medal back into his pocket along with the box, and only then did he realize that he had indeed clutched it too tightly just now. When his attention returned, the soreness on his hand came out in bursts.
Duan Hengye couldn’t help but let out a small hiss, then he quickly followed the tour line.
The scale of this school history museum was not big, and there weren’t too many high-tech products in it, but in the eyes of Duan Hengye, a transmigrator, there were wonders everywhere. In a space of 300 to 400 square meters, there were three-dimensional dynamic pictures recording the history of the place everywhere, shuttling around in them, he really felt like he was in a realm.
Seeing Professor Duan’s state return, the staff who was scheduled to explain to him was finally relieved and came up to introduce him in turn. Duan Hengye was very interested in interstellar history because the original owner’s basic education was severely lacking, so Duan Hengye didn’t know a lot of content that seemed like “common sense” to others.
Although he looked like he wasn’t easy to talk to, after a while, the staff slowly realized that Duan Hengye was not as cold as he looked. On the contrary, he seemed to have a great curiosity about many things.
This staff member was already a great admirer of Professor Duan, and his enthusiasm for work was even greater when he saw this. Even when Meng Jinhuai was chatting with the person in charge here, the staff member who was explaining to Duan Hengye suddenly suggested that he should ask him if he wanted to go back and take a look again.
From the moment he entered the museum, Duan Hengye was walking forward. The staff member guessed that because he kept his head down, Duan Hengye might not have seen the exhibits at the entrance clearly at all.
After hearing this suggestion, Duan Hengye nodded and followed the other party back after some thought.
This pavilion wasn’t very big, but in a short while, the two returned to the entrance. Seeing the numbers representing the years hanging in front of them, Duan Hengye immediately understood that the exhibit before him focused on the years when the Tize Star’s War was about to end.
Somehow, Duan Hengye was a little sensitive to this year.
The highly motivated interpreter didn’t notice that Duan Hengye’s eyebrows were slightly furrowed.
“…… The star of Tize is very much related to the Marshal, and the Marshal’s parents had fought for many years to recover Tize.” He began to introduce the photos here in earnest.
Because it was away from the crowd, only the staff’s voices were constantly echoing in Duan Hengye’s ears at this time. On the black corridor, the dynamic photos of Tize Star back then flashed one by one from in front of Duan Hengye. Looking at the changing timeline, Duan Hengye’s mood actually became tense again for no reason.
The staff member walking in front of him stopped, and he said with a smile to Duan Hengye, “The Marshal lived on Tize Star for a long time as a child, and the medal you’re holding was one he accidentally left behind at that time.”
After the staff’s words fell, the originally dark corridor in front of Duan Hengye once again brightened up, and a photo appeared in front of him.
The background of this photo was exactly the white building that Duan Hengye was currently in, probably because it was in the middle of a war when the photo was taken, and there were more than a dozen black armors parked next to this building.
Slowly, the camera continued to advance forward. Duan Hengye saw that under one of the armor stood a young man in a black uniform. Although there was still a youthfulness between his eyebrows that could not be overlooked, the teenager’s body could already reveal a few points of his current demeanor.
“Professor Duan, I believe you’ve already recognized him, the one in the photo is the Marshal ……” the staff member stepped forward to introduce him.
