Chapter 48 – The big brother whose elbow turned outwards (Part 1)
(TN: ‘Elbow turning outward’ or ‘turning in the wrong way’ is an idiom meaning to favor an outsider instead of someone on one’s own side.)
At the moment, it was estimated that the more than 3000 freshmen were all discussing the military training.
Military training was a nightmare for others but it meant nothing for Lin Mumu.
Merely Standing in the sun, walking in square-shaped formations, understanding and learning how to fire a gun, and such things. It’ wasn’t as hard as they imagined.
Especially for Lin Mumu who had been trained in those kinds of things by her master since childhood, it was a piece of cake. At least, military training didn’t require making high-difficulty movements or spilling blood.
In the evening, the female dormitory was full of plaintive whines of geese. (TN: It means land swarming with disaster victims or starving people, in this context, it’s said mockingly at the girls’ exaggerated complaints.)
Because the military training materials have already been distributed, they have each been preparing a large luggage since the afternoon, constantly filling it as if afraid it would be too empty.
The military already knew about the female students’ many possessions, so the soldier that came also delivered on military bag for every person to limit what they could bring with them, and no more than one bag was allowed.
Furthermore, it was really a small bag. If you put in your toothbrush, rinsing cup, towel, soap, and underwear, it was basically full.
The female students all continuously chattered in protest, but facing a strong military trained man, no protest was effective.
Not to mention they wouldn’t be wearing their beautiful clothes at the camp but the military training uniform, which were a camouflage suit, a common military cap, and a pair of military boots.
What high-heels and shoulder straps? Dream on.
“I’d rather die than live this way. What about my countenance of a flower and face like the moon, ah!” An Xiaoqin was so angry she quickly broke into tears and exaggeratedly let out aggrieved howls in their dormitory room.
(TN: Idiom exaggerating the beauty of a woman, there are many of this kind in Chinese.)
“I think you look good no matter what you wear. You must also look beautiful in camouflage clothes.” Lin Mumu kindly comforted her, “You have a good figure, if you wear the military uniform, you’ll look very valiant. Take it as playing cosplay. “
