Hello my Dear Readers, I'm back! I'm fully recovered and back to writing. I'm very sorry to keep you waiting.
Before you read this chapter don't forget to read the previous chapter. It was edited. Have you noticed?
When they reached the port, the sky was already dark. But the city had only awakened. The majestic view of the skyline appeared with startling beauty. There wasn't a cloud in the star-speckled sky.
The yellow lights of the streets and towering skyscrapers made Paris look like a City of Gold.
Mu Lan who would usually admire the beauty of the city with eyes wide open was unusually not bothered to look at the view. She silently walked beside Mu Liang. However, Mu Liang was mesmerized with the enchanting view for the first time in his life. His lips were slightly stretched, making him extra gorgeous.
They spotted their car in the parking lot and Hugo Muller, the bodyguard was waiting for them while standing beside the car. Young driver Ronald was waiting inside the car. Hugo with his professional eyes could see something was different about his master and mistress. He wasn't sure what it was but the aura between them had changed. Before, though they had a normal connection between them, it looked so formal.
However, right now, it looked a little awkward. Mu Lan was looking at the road and her head was slightly bent. On the other hand, Mu Liang looked a bit happy and relaxed, the total opposite of their reactions from yesterday. Hugo, who was good at martial arts but had zero experience in romance couldn't solve the mystery about their behaviors.
As Mu Liang and Mu Lan got closer, Hugo greeted them both. Mu Liang replied unexpectedly out of his behavior while the usually cheerful Mu Lan only nodded and her eyes were already looking at the road. Hugo found this weird since she didn't even glance at him for once. Hence he doubted that definitely something was amiss. Ronald though the same when he saw that the young mistress was so quiet and her face was slightly flushed. Ronald and Hugo made eye contact but didn't make a sound. On the other hand, Mu Lan was feeling awkward.
The car was moving at a moderate speed and soon they would reach their destination. However, the mood inside the car was of discomfort. Mu Liang was sitting at the back seat all cozening up one hand was on his leg while the other one was on Mu Lan's shoulder and he pulled her close to him.
Mu Lan who was so close to Mu Liang froze. She almost forgot to move. Her face was getting hotter and her breathing irregular.
Ronald, who was a little experienced in love understood right away what was wrong with her. He realized that his master started to show his demonic face in front of the mistress which made her very uncomfortable. He slightly pitied her but he also knew that she would get used to it sooner or later.
Mu Liang was not only thinking along the same lines, but he also thought about other possibilities too. He was kind of ready for Mu Lan to avoid all sorts of connections when she would join the school. But with her soft personality, she would pay him back for his kindness. He knew that she was kind and had a strong personality.
However, he didn't expect that the thing that actually happened the very next day.
Mu Liang woke up early as usual and went out for running. After he came back he did some workout and headed straight to bath. After that, he had his breakfast waited in the living room for Mu Lan to come down.
Assistant Ju Long became used to his boss's change of habit and he scheduled all the meetings for afternoon and evening. He had already learned his lesson. He was giving his boss some important documents and Mu Liang was reading them carefully. He noticed that his boss was glancing frequently at the door and Ju Long understood right away what his boss was thinking. Just then Butler Leo entered the room with a tray and started serving them with his delicious masala tea. It's elegant aroma relaxed them all instantly.
Mu Liang looked at his wrist watch and saw it was already half-past ten. Usually, when Mu Lan was not drunk, she would wake up earlier but today she wasn't coming down. Mu Liang slightly frowned. He looked at the documents and casually asked the Head Butler, "Tell the maids to wake up Xiao Lan. It is not good for her health to have her breakfast at noon."
Mu Liang always used 'Xiao' before her name in front of others. He had a habit of calling her only 'Lan' when they were together. But when he tried to confess to her yesterday he used 'Xiao'.
Butler Leo having served them tea replied, "Young Mistress went out when Young Master was out for running."
Mu Liang's eyes halted and didn't move for awhile. Then slowly he looked at the butler and observed him if he was lying. Butler Leo got confused by his sudden stare.
Mu Liang asked, "She went out?"
Butler Leo replied, "Yes, young master."
Mu Liang asked again, "Did she have her breakfast?"
Head Butler answered him politely, "She took her breakfast. I personally arranged it for her when she asked for it. She also wanted lunch. So I made her a large bento."
Mu Liang asked further, "Was she alone?"
Leo replied patiently, "No, Hugo was with her They took the car you arranged for her."
Mu Liang put down the documents and sipped in the cup. All of a sudden, the temperature of the room dropped drastically.
Mu Liang didn't expect her to move her chess piece so early. Her IQ is high. Though her nature was kind and warm, she was merciless towards her opponents. A dark smile was visible on his face.
Looking at this smile, Ju Long almost got a heart attack. 'Oh dear, here is boss's most creepiest smile. He shows it before he makes a move against his enemies. I don't know what happened between them but Miss Lan, I wish you all the best.' He prayed for her with his pure intention.
Mu Liang thought, 'You want to play hide and seek with me? Let's do it."
The game has begun!
