It was hard for Mu Lan to communicate with Mu Liang like she was used to. Moreover, his demonic side was so not safe for her. After today, there would be three more days left before she attended school. She believed that she would be safe after she went to school. So, she had to be cautious for another three days.
Mu Lan thought deeply, she got herself six months time before she had to marry him. Six months was actually a long time. As time would fly away, maybe Mu Liang's taste would change as well. Who would want to stick together with a girl like her anyway? Mu Lan thanked herself for getting six months for herself.
The sun was going down. It made the sky look like a canvas painted with violet, pink and yellow color.
River Seine reflected the light of the sky. Their combination made the whole city dye in crimson red. It was quite beautiful to watch.
However, such a beautiful scenery didn't catch Mu Lan's eyes. The only thing she had in her mind was to stay away from Mu Liang for three days. If she could keep her distance from him for three days, then she didn't have to go through an experience like 'that'. And after three days, she would get her long-awaited freedom.
Mentally, Mu Lan quickly started to chart out a plan to avoid Mu Liang at any cost.
She coded her conspiracy as 'Mission: Impossible Avoid Protocol'.
As she was busy planning, Mu Liang entered the room with a tray full of food. He put it on the bed, next to Mu Lan. After that, he gazed at the girl whose eyes were closed. Gently, he touched her shoulder and her reaction was remarkable. Mu Lan jolted awake, her eyes flew open, her eyelashes shuddered at the speed of electricity. Startled she quickly sat up on the bed. 'Did my heart just tremble now?' Mu Lan thought. Then shook her head thinking, 'It is called Fear! Fear!'
Mu Liang, on the other hand, found it really amusing. He never imagined that his beloved 'wife' was actually that cute. Everything about her was truly entertaining. Mu Liang controlled his laughter. Then he said, "Here, have something. We'll reach the port soon."
Mu Lan looked at the tray and saw Italian pasta, boiled egg, and milk. She almost drooled at the food before her. Coincidentally, even her stomach was calling out for food. She immediately took the plate and started to eat pasta. She moaned happily when the food melted in her mouth. She never looked up even once. All her attention was on the food which was deliciously cooked only for her. She praised Mu Liang's cooking skills inwardly.
Mu Liang looked at her affectionate gaze. His heart was content. For the first time in his life, he felt lucky. What could be more satisfactory than cooking food for his wife and moreover she was eating it so happily? He wanted to stroke her head but controlled himself.
Within twenty minutes, Mu Lan finished everything in the tray. Satisfied, she rubbed her filled belly. Then she looked at the man beside her and said, "Thank you."
She didn't know that her small 'Thank you' could take Mu Liang to heaven. He carefully glanced all over her body, giving her goosebumps.
Finally, Mu Liang opened his mouth saying, "I believe you want to change your clothes. Though I don't mind taking you home like that." Saying that he got up with the tray and went to the kitchen.
Mu Lan looked down at herself and gasped. She couldn't see her neck though, but she still saw her disheveled dress which was almost worn out because of their morning activity. Like a dolphin, she jumped out of the bed and ran towards the bathroom. She looked at the mirror and nearly fainted. Her neck, shoulder, and chest were covered with hickeys.
Mu Lan wobbled as her legs lost control. She immediately sat on the floor with a 'plop' sound. Blood rushed to her mouth. Her heart raced at an incredible speed. She covered her face with both of her hands. She wanted to curse him but when his gentle face flashed before her eyes, she couldn't.
Calming down her heart for a few more seconds, she got up and went to the closet. Fortunately, she got a collared dress and she quickly changed her dress into the new one. Then she moved to the living room and sat on the sofa and tried to relax.
Hello my Beloved Loyal Readers,
Actually, I am so not in a situation to write anything. But I didn't want to torture you. So I thought that it would be better if I at least release a chapter to give you a notice beforehand.
Just let me recover well. Then, I'll write for you guys.
