There are three types of love. It can be easily described with the help of clothes. Let's take three colors of clothes: black, white and ash. Hang those clothes in an open place where they can get direct sunlight.
When the sun shines, the black clothes will slowly heat up and absorb the warmth fully. After the sun goes down, it will slowly release the heat and it will take time to cool down.
When it comes to white clothes, under the sunlight, it will heat up quickly and will reflect the warmth. So it will be less hot than the black and ash clothes. And when the sun goes down, it will quickly lose its warmth too.
As for the ash clothes, it will take the necessary heat from the sun and will absorb it. However, when the sun goes down, it will gradually lose its warmth.
Love is like black clothes, starts in a slow way and eventually, it becomes the strongest love and it is hard to forget as well as to lose. Love like white clothes starts within a second and the love grows quickly. However, it also ends rapidly. Love like the ash clothes is selfish. It uses others in the name of love. And when the time comes to an end, it will slowly break the relation with no hard feelings.
The love Mu Liang had for Mu Lan was like the black clothing. That aloof, cool-headed CEO was very cautious when it came to women. He had seen many crazy women who wanted to sell their bodies to get his power and money. So it could be said that his past experience made hiM careful around women.
Back in Germany, it wasn't love at first sight. When he first heard about the functions of the game, he became curious and observed her carefully. She was an intelligent and brave young lady. She wasn't nervous when she was answering the judges' questions. She had a strong sense of reality and through the virtual world she made it clear that it was not a fantasy, it was just a game, to make a person stronger for the real world. It was a game to make mentally weak people strong for the betterment. He was astonished by the idea of the game. She was a good leader and also a great friend. For the first time in his life, he became interested in a woman. He sent his assistant Ju Long to keep an eye on her.
She was unique. She talked to everyone. If someone wanted to bully her, she would twist the plot and would make them the victim. She had a pure heart though she was also mischievous. Once she helped an old man who was actually his grandfather. Another time, she kicked a working-class man in front of the police because he was sexually harassing a school girl.
Even Mu Liang couldn't tell when he actually fell for her. But when he realized his feelings, it became too hard to let go, even though he knew where her heart truly was. However, she suddenly came into his life with no memories. This time, he couldn't hold back. He knew it wasn't right but due to his three years of love for her, he suddenly wanted to break through everything.
The urge to love her, the passion to touch her, the will to kiss her, the dream to marry her; everything came undone.
However, the girl, whom he had been longing for so many months, was actually avoiding him. And that was unforgivable. He understood very well that partly it was his fault, but he didn't want to admit it. He became more and more childish, like a boy wanting to have a robot.
He slowly moved towards the bed.
Suddenly he stopped. He looked at the door and found the reading table. He walked there and moved it to its original place. After that, he moved the chair and opened the balcony door.
Calming breeze came through the door. It eased his heart. He looked at the sky. It was a full-moon today. The moon was sharing her light wholeheartedly. Naturally even the room was also filled with beautiful silver light, making it more magical and romantic.
Mu Lan was lying down as frigid as wood. She acted like she was asleep. She would definitely not let him know that she was awake. When she heard him moving the table and the chair, she didn't want to admit but she rather felt guilty.
Mu Liang stood beside the bed for a while, like he was thinking something. His actions were making Mu Lan even more nervous. Then he took off his slippers and went to the bed and laid down just beside her. Mu Lan couldn't tell what she was feeling. But her heart almost stopped.
All of a sudden the room became silent. It felt like as if even the birds forgot to sing tonight. Mu Lan was holding her breath without her knowledge. On the other hand, she couldn't even hear Mu Liang's breathing!
Mu Liang was doing everything deliberately. He was fully aware that she was awake. He was only trying to see her expression. He wasn't actually lying down. He was facing her and his one hand was on the bed while the other was balancing his head. He had a sweet smile on his lips.
After being like that for a while seeing no reaction from her, his smile widened. 'What an acting skill!' He thought in amusement. 'Which human body stays so tensed while sleeping? Who is she fooling?'
All of a sudden, he grabbed the quilt and uncovered her. Still, Mu Lan didn't move. Her face was facing the pillow. It looked like she promised not to show herself today to Mu Liang.
Mu Liang didn't say anything. He observed her. She was wearing a baby pink pure silk nightgown. Her slender neck, collarbones, cleavage were naked in front of him. Also, he saw the red hickeys. They were still visible. His ocean blue eyes darkened.
Mu Liang covered himself with the same quilt. This time he laid down properly. Then, he touched Mu Lan who slightly quivered in his touch. After that, almost gently, almost forcefully he pulled her into his embrace.
Mu Lan, the night is long.
