Mu Lan wanted to talk to him but as the class started there was no way to talk. Their Sculpture Teacher was a funny man. They had fun in the class, however, as they started to make statues, the students smiles vanished from their mouths.
Painting was something they all could do. However, making the sculpture was a whole new thing. It needed patience and practice, and more importantly diligence.
There was a statue of a fish which was looking at the sky and half of its body was on a big rock of the sea. It was a fish who was tired of living at the bottom of the sea and was dreaming to touch the sky.
At the look of it, it seemed to be an easy piece. But when the Fine Arts students couldn't make a fish, how could they finish the whole statue?
Within a few minutes, they all drenched in sweat. A girl already gave up. Looking at her, the students got demotivated.
Mu Lan got high spirited and used her hands faster and then accidentally, she broke the fish's tail. She stopped working and huffed as she sat on the chair and took out her bottle and drank a mouthful. She wiped the sweat from her forehead and looked around. She was about to retreat her gaze, just then, something very interesting caught her eyes.
It was that handsome, quiet, sturdy man who had earlier showed his displeasure was working on his sculpture very seriously. His fish was showing a good shape. Everyone was busy with their work so no one actually saw his work.
Mu Lan was in a daze and it took her some time to understand what was going on. After realizing what she was seeing, she jumped out of the chair and quickly walked towards him. She looked at his work with curiosity. The way he worked, he looked like a pro.
Mu Lan exclaimed in surprise, "Wow! you are a genius."
She was loud and excited. So everyone's attention turns towards her and then him. With that, the teacher and the other students gathered around their table. They all became very interested in his work. Some of them even started taking notes.
Meanwhile, the person who had gotten all the attention stiffened. His whole body became solid just like a statue.
Everyone understood that he got nervous so they started to praise him and inspire him. Slowly he got relaxed and finished his work in an hour. Everyone clapped and congratulated him.
Girl students gave extra glances at him from time to time. That male student was working hard. Even though he was wearing a t-shirt, his strong muscles were understandable. He was covered with sweat. His dampness wet his brown hair. His sweat on the skin was glittering in the light. The girls gulped at his handsomeness.
In the first class of his university life, he became popular. Many students took his number and most of them were girls. Even if they weren't interest in his sculpture making, they were certainly interested in another thing. That man's ears turned red as he thought of his own popularity.
After class Mu Lan cleaned herself and took off her apron, gloves, mask and plastic cap and put them in her locker. Then she picked her bag and was ready to go out. Before she went out, she checked around to look for that guy. She also wanted to chat with him not because of the other thing but for statue making.
However, he was nowhere to be seen. After looking for a few minutes, Mu Lan headed back. She went to the library and grabbed some references and CD's about sculpture and spent some time there.
After studying for an hour, Mu Lan looked around the library as she twisted her body. Right then, she spotted that genius.
He was standing beside the window of the library and was looking outside. It wasn't like a dazed look of a poet but a look of a person who was searching for something.
Mu Lan was about to get up, right that moment, he put his right hand on the pocket, took out his cell phone. It seemed like he got a call and he hurriedly got out of the room to answer it.
Thinking nothing of it, she tried to concentrate on the book. At that moment a girl walked inside the library. She took four books from the library and sat in the corner of the room.
Today Mu Lan was completely distracted. As she saw, the girl covered her face with a book, her jade white, skinny hands reminded Mu Lan of the girl she collided yesterday.
Feeling her gaze, the girl looked up. Her grey colored eyes looked at Mu Lan's eyes. Her gaze was very sharp. Mu Lan felt that she was being devoured. She felt that the girl can see through everything.
Mu Lan nodded to her out of courtesy and buried her head in the book. 'God, that was scary.' She thought.
The more she tried to concentrate the more she saw a vision of those grey eyes. She was very much attracted to those particular eyes. Those eyes were very captivating.
Not able to concentrate anymore, she got up and left the library. That's when she remembered that she missed the chance to talk to the boy.
After walking a few meters, Mu Lan suddenly stopped in her tracks. She looked back and saw no one. She felt a chill. She could swear that someone was looking at her back intensely.
Mu Lan went to the cafeteria. She took her order and sat on the corner, from where she could see everything. While eating she found nothing suspicious.
After finishing her meal, she walked towards the garden. Again, she got a feeling that someone was stalking her. She stopped in her tracks and went to the Fine Arts faculty. She walked as fast as she could to the Sculpture room.
Mu Lan closed the room and the room was dark. She wasn't afraid of the dark. She didn't turn on the light.
After waiting for a few moments, she walked to the middle of the room. Accidentally, she tripped herself, made a huge 'thud' noise. A scream escaped her mouth.
Just then, someone barged into the room and hurriedly turned on the light.
Light-filled up the room. Mu Lan saw it was that genius boy from the Sculpture class. She was obviously surprised. That guy was dumbfounded too.
Finally, Mu Lan opened her mouth, "You are..."
