When Mu Lan woke up the next morning she felt refreshed. She looked at the balcony door from where sunlight was greeting the room. She twirled her body as she got up. She freshened up and went downstairs. There she saw Mu Liang sitting on the sofa while reading the newspaper.
There was a hot coffee mug on the table, she realized that he hadn't been waiting for too long. Mu Lan greeted him, "Good morning, Liang Liang."
Hearing her greeting Mu Liang looked up. Seeing her bright face, total opposite of last night he felt relieved. He also smiled at her and greeted, "Good morning."
As Mu Lan sat beside him, Mu Liang gave her a fashion magazine. She thanked him. Seeing him so relaxed, Mu Lan looked up at the clock, it was almost time for work. So she asked, "Liang Liang?"
Mu Liang looked up and smiled, "What is it?"
"Aren't you going to work?" Mu Lan asked.
"Actually today I've got to go somewhere else. Someone is coming from New York. We'll head out together."
Mu Liang dared not to say that he was going to visit the girls' dorm for her room decoration.
Mu Lan nodded, "Oh, okay." Then she looked at the magazine. She tried to cover her lightly blushing face. She thought the way she asked him felt like they were a married couple.
Soon Head Butler came and greeted Mu Lan and told them breakfast was ready.
After they finished their breakfast, Mu Liang took her out. They went to the east wing where the vegetable garden was situated. There they saw a man in a black t-shirt and trousers with black glasses. He was standing there with two German Shepherds.
Seeing Mu Liang and Mu Lan coming, those shepherds started barking and ran towards them. Mu Lan froze on the spot. She wasn't afraid but still cautious.
First, the shepherds jumped on Mu Liang and gave him some licking on his hands then they gave their attention towards Mu Lan. When she saw them looking at her suspiciously, she drew closer to Mu Liang. Seeing her discomfort, Mu Liang hugged her waist and pulled her closer. Then he introduced them to Mu Lan.
"Lan, they are Oscar and Lucy. They are husband and wife. Recently Lucy gave birth to twins, the girl is called Lola and the boy is called Noe. They are one month old. They came back today. Because I sent them to my family house in Italy when I heard that Lucy was pregnant. Since My grandma loves Lucy. They seem unfriendly first. To make them friendly, you just have to kneel down, give them your sweetest smile and try to shake your hand with them."
As Mu Liang instructed her, Mu Lan knelt down and smiled a bit. She extended out her right hand.
"Grrrr." Oscar came between Lucy and her. He seemed very protective of his wife.
"Behave." Mu Liang warned him coldly.
Hearing his master's warning Oscar gave him a pity look then smelled Mu Lan's hand. 'She doesn't look unfriendly or a bad girl, unlike those shameless hags who tries to seduce my master.' Oscar was wise. Then he moved his right leg to shake her hand. 'Huh, just because I'm shaking my leg with you, doesn't mean I trust you completely. If you want to stay with the master I don't mind but stay away from my wife.' Oscar scoffed.
Mu Lan became very happy. She also shook her hand with Lucy.
When Mu Liang saw that they wouldn't be a harm to her anymore, he looked at the man who was walking to them. That man in black came closer and bowed to him.
Mu Liang told Mu Lan, "He is Hugo Muller. From now on he is your personal bodyguard."
Mu Lan was surprised. "I don't need a bodyguard." She protested.
Mu Liang smiled at her, "I don't have to remind you what Feng told you, do I?"
Mu Lan remembered what Mu Feng told her before he left. She gulped. "No, you don't."
Feels great when my Lovely Readers smile reading my novel.
I'm sorry that I didn't publish it earlier. I had a class so I was in a hurry. Now when I checked, I saw it was in draft, not published yet. :(
Are you guys disappointed for a less romantic night?
Trust me, it was heaven for Mu Liang. XD
What you're waiting for comes with a greater surprise.
With Love ~
