Nie Zhen'er held the pocket watch in her hand and spilled everything on her mind to her parents' photos.
Inadvertently, the sunlight happened to shone directly on the photos through the window, causing an extremely dazzling light to be reflected.
Nie Zhen'er quickly covered her eyes with her hands.
The beam only flashed for a moment before immediately disappearing.

    Then, Nie Zhen'er removed her hand and slowly opened her eyes to see a cut on her finger with beads of blood dripping out steadily.
When it dripped on the photo, the appearance of Nie Zhen'er's parents was blurred by the blood.


    Nie Zhen'er hurried to find a napkin to wipe the photo in the pocket watch.
The pocket watch was the only thing her parents left for her and the photo inside is the most important thing for her.
Although her parents can’t accompany her, with the photo, Nie Zhen'er felt a lot braver since she had an object to pour out her heart to when she encountered anything.

    If the photo is ruined, she’ll die of sadness.

    All the tissues were usually placed in the bathroom.
Fortunately, Nie Zhen'er was lucky enough to find a piece of napkin near the head of her bed.
She quickly picked up the pocket watch and planned to wipe the blood using the napkin.

    But when her gaze fell on the pocket watch, she discovered that the photo was clean.
There was no trace of blood, as if what she had just seen was only an illusion.

    Nie Zhen'er looked down at her still injured finger.
She frowned slightly, wondering what was going on.

    Luan Qing Xiao came out of the bathroom and saw Nie Zhen'er staring at her pocket watch in a daze.
She walked over and asked, “Zhen'er, what happened? Is there anything wrong with the pocket watch?”

    Nie Zhen'er shook her head, “Qing Xiao, it's so weird.
Just now a light reflected from the pocket watch, causing my finger to be cut.
Then, the blood dripped on the photos of my parents, staining it.
Yet when I found a napkin to wipe the photo, the blood on the photo disappeared.”

    Luan Qing Xiao took the pocket watch from her hand and observed the photo of Nie Zhen'er's parents.
The two people in it seemed very gentle.
Only when someone looks carefully can they see the eyebrows of both of them were slightly colored red.

    Luan Qing Xiao: 520, what's the matter with the pocket watch?

    【Ding! The pocket watch had already recognized Luo Zi Lin as its master, but the sliver of consciousness left by the female lead’s parents within the pocket watch used the female lead’s blood to eliminate Luo Zi Lin’s imprint.
Now the pocket watch recognizes the female lead as its master~】

    Luan Qing Xiao placed the pocket watch in Nie Zhen'er's palm and said to Nie Zhen'er, “Close your eyes and try to connect with the pocket watch using your ability.”

    Nie Zhen'er nodded and tried as Luan Qing Xiao said.
On the third attempt, power flowed from the photo and circulated to the pocket watch as something suddenly appeared in Nie Zhen'er's mind.

    She opened her eyes and grabbed Luan Qing Xiao's hand excitedly, “Qing Xiao, the pocket watch told me it’s bound to me.”

    “However it said someone else bound to it before me and used up its ability to control time and space twice, so now there was only one chance left.” Nie Zhen'er asked strangely, “This pocket watch has always been with me, when did someone have the opportunity to steal and use its powers?”

    Luan Qing Xiao questioned, “Where did you previously keep your pocket watch?”

    “Inside my bag.”

    “Where did you find it just now?”

    Nie Zhen'er suddenly realized, “On the bed, I found it on the bed just now.
The pocket watch definitely have been stolen!”

    Luan Qing Xiao rubbed Nie Zhen'er's head, “In the future, it's better to keep the pocket watch close to your body.”

    Luan Qing Xiao hesitated, but ended up not telling Nie Zhen'er the truth.

    First of all, only the user of the pocket watch will have their memories intact.
So she won’t be able to explain why she still has all the memories during the time reversal.
Secondly, 520 said  Luo Zi Lin will play an important role later in the future.
If she exposed herself, Luo Zi Lin was more likely to die early, which would disrupt the direction of the world.
At that time, Luan Qing Xiao will definitely be ejected from this world.

    Even if she could re-enter the world to do missions, the chance to swap out the female lead to Nie Zhen'er has already been used up.
When the time comes, Luan Qing Xiao won’t be able to do anything.


    The members of Squadron X decided beforehand that three days later they would gather downstairs in the dormitory at 7 o'clock in the morning.
Nie Zhen'er and Luan Qing Xiao got up late, so when they headed downstairs, they saw Liang Yan and the other four people were already waiting downstairs.

    Luan Qing Xiao noticed when Luo Zi Lin saw her, her body shook involuntarily.

    Luan Qing Xiao gave her a faint glance, which Luo Zi Lin immediately responded by lowering her head in fright.

    Luo Zi Lin gritted her teeth tightly as her lowered eyes filled with resentment.

    Yesterday, she slept drenched the entire night.
Once she woke up in the morning, she comprehended that the hand grasping her wrist was warm and after she rewound time, Luan Qing Xiao obviously retained her memory! Otherwise, how could she know the pocket watch was in her hands?

    Isn't Luan Qing Xiao the vicious female supporting character? Why does such fortunate events always happen to her? Clearly only the user of a pocket watch can keep the memory, so why was Luan Qing Xiao an exception too!

    If Luo Zi Lin hadn't confirmed she remembered the tragic scene of Luan Qing Xiao's death in the book, she would have thought that the Luan Qing Xiao in front of her was the heroine!

    Nevertheless, Luo Zi Lin wasn’t afraid of Luan Qing Xiao snitching to Liang Yan, because as long as she refused to admit it, she can’t explain why she still had memories after reversing time.

    After Luan Qing Xiao looked away, Luo Zi Lin let out a sigh of relief and hid behind Jiang Yue Bai to block herself from Luan Qing Xiao’s view.

    Liang Yan announced, “Everyone has been recovering for the past three days and should have adapted to life here.
The purpose of us coming to A Base is to improve our strength, so next, in order to help you improve your strength in a planned way, I will assign you some missions.

    “Luan Qing Xiao, there is a dry pool at the center of A Base.
All you have to do is bring your crystal cores there and fill up the pool with water using your ability.
Once your ability is all exhausted, immediately absorb the energy from the crystals.
Are there any questions?”

    Luan Qing Xiao replied, “Reporting to Captain, no questions.”

    “Very good, next up is Nie Zhen'er.” Liang Yan paused, “In front of the tallest building in A Base, there are two stone lions which I have already inquired about.
These two stone lions are made of fine iron and weigh one ton.
I also managed to obtain the consent of Yuan Ting and Yuan Boss.
You might go anywhere with the stone lion, but before nightfall, you must bring the stone lion back.
Similarly, once your power ability is all exhausted, immediately absorb the energy from the crystals.

    Nie Zhen'er nodded her head obediently.
Liang Yan watched her docile appearance which made his heart skip a beat before adding, “If you really can't lift the stone lion, no need to force it.
Come find me and I will arrange lighter exercise items for you.

    Both Luan Qing Xiao and Luo Zi Lin narrowed their eyes at the same time.

    Luan Qing Xiao pursed her lips as she glanced at Nie Zhen'er coldly without speaking.

    Yet Luo Zi Lin didn't intend to endure it, “Captain, we’re all members of this squadron, you can't just give Nie Zhen'er the special treatment.”

    The gentle expression on Liang Yan's face disappeared, “Of course, I’ll treat all my members the same.”

    “Okay, next one, Zhang Yao Xue.
You’re a soil type ability user; the east side of A Base is getting turned into a vegetable plot, go help dig and tilt the soil.”

    “Jiang Yue Bai, there is a hospital in A Base.
Go there to practice your ability.”

    “Finally, Luo Zi Lin.
Since space ability users need to constantly retrieve and store the things in their space, you can head to the warehouse to help transport supplies.”

    “Captain, what about you? Where are you going to practice?” Luo Zi Lin asked.

    Liang Yan pursed his lips, “I need to practice my metal ability by using my ability to transform into various weapons and control them to attack zombies.
I’ll be following the A Base’s ability users on outside missions.”

    “Presumably everyone has come to realize these few days that eating in the cafeteria of A Base requires contribution points.
Except for Nie Zhen'er, the rest of you can not only train your abilities, but also gain contribution points as well.
Because my contribution points will be more abundant since my missions are higher risked, Nie Zhen’er can just use my contribution points to eat in the cafeteria when the time comes.”

    “No matter how you package it, Nie Zhen'er is always the one who is specially taken care of by the captain.” Luo Zi Lin grudgingly mumbled.

    Nie Zhen'er glanced at Liang Yan awkwardly, “Captain, how about you can help me choose another mission that can earn contribution points?”

    Liang Yan felt his authority being challenged by Luo Zi Lin, so his face turned stern.
“No need, just do as I just said.”

    Once Liang Yan was done speaking, the group went upstairs to their rooms to retrieve their crystals before splitting up for their separate training.

    Luan Qing Xiao found herself and Nie Zhen'er to be only a street apart.
After confirming Liang Yan had returned to the dormitory to rest and prepare for his night mission, Nie Zhen'er relocated the enormous stone lion closer to Luan Qing Xiao and watched her inject endless streams of water into the dry pool.

    “Boom! Boom! Boom!” The stone lion that Nie Zhen'er was holding was extremely heavy, causing every step she took would leave a footprint on the ground.

    When Luan Qing Xiao exhausted her ability, she took out the crystal nucleus prepared in advance to absorb it.

    If Nie Zhen'er wanted to improve her ability, she didn't need to use the crystal nucleus at all.
However she didn't want to expose herself in front of Luan Qing Xiao, thus she said.
“I’m going to take this stone lion back to change to the other one and absorb my crystal nuclei there.”

    Luan Qing Xiao nodded and didn’t expose her.

    Luo Zi Lin’s mission required her to transport the warehouse materials to various places, such as the canteen, supermarkets, hospitals and other places.
Dropping off them one by one, she passed by the places where Luan Qing Xiao and the other four practiced their powers.

    After Luo Zi Lin exhausted her ability, she took out her crystal cores to replenish the energy into the body and began the second round of delivery.

    As night fell, Liang Yan came out to check the team’s results and found everyone's abilities had improved.
He nodded in satisfaction, and bought the four of them to acquire a card for storing their contribution points.

    Only Nie Zhen'er didn’t get a card.
Liang Yan was afraid she would be sad or disappointed, so he exclaimed, “When I come back tomorrow night, I’ll have them split my contribution value in two cards and give you one.
Later at dinnertime,” Liang Yan swept around the five people and chose Zhang Yao Xue, who had the most contribution value, “Zhang Yao Xue will help Zhen'er buy food first.
She’ll return it to you tomorrow when she gets her card.”

    “Thank you Captain.” Nie Zhen'er blinked her lovely apricot eyes.

    To be honest, she didn't want it.
Luan Qing Xiao said she would share her card with her, but she and Luan Qing Xiao had to keep a distance in front of the captain.
It would be strange not to accept the captain's kindness, so Nie Zhen'er agreed in the end.

    Watching them off to the side, Luo Zi Lin burned with jealousy.
Obviously she, the transmigrator to this book, should be the protagonist.
Why did Liang Yan always treat Nie Zhen’er so differently?

    After Liang Yan left, they decided to head to the canteen to have their meal before resting.
While they were lining up, 520’s voice sounded in Luan Qing Xiao's ears.

    【Ding! The third mandatory plot will be coming soon.
In another ten minutes, Luo Zi Lin is going to sneak her contribution point card into Host’s pocket.
Please transfer the contribution card to the female lead! 】

    She actually had to be the villain this time.

    Luan Qing Xiao's expression stiffened.

    Ten minutes later, the five people sat down together for a meal.
Luo Zi Lin lowered her head as the gears in her brain whirled and a scheme came to mind.
She stood up, saying, “I’m going to buy a bun to bring back to the dormitory.”

    Then she left her seat and headed over to the canteen window for the bun.

    When she came back, Luo Zi Lin pretended to accidentally bump into Luan Qing Xiao.
Luan Qing Xiao turned around, frowning, and glanced at her.
Luo Zi Lin stretched out her hand to pat her body and said with concern, “Sorry, Lieutenant, are you okay? I didn't hurt you, did I?”

    Confirming the contribution card has been put into her pocket, Luan Qing Xiao furrowed her brows, “Enough, Luo Zi Lin, go finish your food.”

    Luo Zi Lin’s heart relaxed and responded with a smile, “As expected of the Lieutenant, such a broad minded person.
I know you won't have blamed me.”

    After dinner, the few people walked back.
They were drained thanks to their intense day of training and didn't have any remaining energy to stroll around to help digest their food.
They collectively agreed on directly returning back to the dormitory for resting.

    When they arrived at the dormitory’s entrance, Zhang Yao Xue went to the left while the four girls went to the right.

    Before separating, Luo Zi Lin grabbed Zhang Yao Xue's arm and asked curiously.
“How many points do you have on the card? Since the captain requested you to lend them to Nie Zhen'er, you must have a whole lot.”

    Without waiting for Zhang Yao Xue to speak, Luo Zi Lin tried to pull out her card, “I have about 300 in mine.”

    Since she already slid her card into Luan Qing Xiao's pocket, naturally she wouldn’t be able to pull a card out.
