"Who are you?" The handsome fellow asked. The way he asked it felt like he was a king ordering his lowly subject.
If it were someone else, they would flinch upon hearing such a chilling voice. But Mu Lan didn't flinch or shiver. She found him quite interesting. She couldn't take her eyes off of his lonely eyes full of sadness.
Those lonely eyes were distant. They wanted to stay away from people, not because they didn't want people closer to them. It was because they were afraid of getting hurt. Though they kept their presence indistinct, they wanted the warmth called love. They wanted friends. They kept wishing but no one came to recognize them.
Mu Lan looked at his eyes deeply. That man felt uncomfortable under her sharp gaze. He didn't feel it intimidating but he felt like those transparent eyes could read his soul like an open book. Because of her gaze, he looked away.
Seeing his discomfort, Mu Lan averted her gaze. Then she slowly got closer to him. That guy saw her movement and became alert. His body became rigid and he eyed her suspiciously.
"I asked you who you are. What do you want and why are you here?" He asked cautiously.
Mu Lan smiled at him. "I'm Hua Lan. I'm here to find my path of happiness."
That guy didn't believe her. He looked colder than before.
'Maybe he didn't believe me. But I did speak the truth.' Mu Lan thought. She knew that she should leave but she couldn't. She wanted to accompany that lonely guy. But he had a different wish. He didn't want her to be with him.
He coldly said, "Leave! I don't want to see your face." Saying his line he turned around and wanted to leave. However, Mu Lan had another plan. She asked, "What's your name? Why are you here?"
He refused to answer but he stopped in his track when he realized that a certain annoying girl was following him. He sternly said, "Don't follow me or I'll hurt you."
Mu Lan said, "Dude, why are you acting so heartlessly. We are alone here. So why don't we go together? I feel that we're going to the same destination." She smiled at him.
This time, he didn't say anything. They walked silently and that cold guy didn't utter a word since then.
Mu Lan was starting to feel bored when she suddenly heard the sound of guns. She became frightened. She felt like the sound was familiar but she couldn't remember where she had heard this sound before. But the moment she heard it, she knew it was the sound of a gun.
She started to panic as the sound was coming closer. She saw a guy pointing his gun at her. She was too afraid to move. When all of a sudden, that cold guy appeared between them and took the bullet.
Mu Lan felt like she did something wrong. She hugged the guy. They were closer to the river. So she took him to the river bank and took some water in her hands and made him drink the water. Seeing his blood flowing out, she felt like her heart was being ripped apart.
She couldn't control her tears anymore and started to say, "Please, don't leave me. Please, don't leave me."
