The warmth from her hand was firm and passionate.
This was her first time feeling just how important Mu Li Chuan was in her heart.
The feeling of sweetness wasn’t bad.
After that day, Luo Qing Chen didn’t see Su Chen for a long time.
Her last impression of him were those dark eyes filled with regret and the hesitation to speak.
She didn’t see Su Chen not because he didn’t teach at the school anymore, but because their department went to the desert.
“Ah! This will probably be my first and last time seeing the sun set in a desert.” Lan Zhi gave a sigh beside her before taking a picture.
Luo Qing Chen took a quick look. In Lan Zhi’s photos, there was always a person in a certain angle.
Sometimes near, sometimes far, sometimes bright, sometimes dark.
Actually, she knew who she was photographing, but she didn’t speak or ask.
“What are you thinking?” A pair of large hands suddenly came on her head, scaring her and Lan Zhi.
Luo Qing Chen slowly looked up and took the water from Mu Li Chuan, “I’m thinking that with how drying it is, I’ll be even darker when I go back.”
“This flower has an owner, there’s no need to worry.” He sat beside her and gently touched her forehead, “You have a slight fever. Although this is normal, you should drink more water over the next two days. When you have time, come to me to get your temperature taken by hand.”
Luo Qing Chen was surprised before touching her forehead.
It was indeed a bit hot. It should be the heat from the desert which was a normal thing.
“So powerful!” Luo Qing Chen pursed her lips before mimicking his action and putting her hand on his forehead, “Then why don’t you have a fever?”
“I’ve been to the desert many times.” Mu Li Chuan took her hand before saying, “I’ve just never been to this remote desert before.”
“Ke, ke……” Lan Zhi sitting beside her gave two coughs before saying with a laugh, “I’m going to make the tent, I won’t be a light bulb.”
Luo Qing Chen wanted to say something, but Lan Zhi was already walking off with a smile after waving her hand.
There were some things that when seen through but not spoken gave a very strange feeling.
It can’t be considered painful. It was just that it can’t be spoken clearly and there was no clear reason.
The desert was on the border of two countries, so day and night were different.
The nights were long and the days were short.
Luo Qing Chen never thought that after arriving in the desert, the signs of her fever wouldn’t recede.
There were many people here, but they didn’t show the same symptoms.
This kind of heat wasn’t rare in the desert, but it was very strange that her fever wouldn’t break after so long.
“Other than feeling warm, are there any other places where you feel uncomfortable?” It was three in the afternoon and the sun had already set. Mu Li Chuan came to her side with medicine and touched her forehead.
It was still hot. It was the same as the first day and it didn’t get better at all.
“Ke, ke……” Luo Qing Chen gave two coughs before pursing her lips to say, “The back of my hand feels a bit itchy.”
She also felt that there was something wrong with her. She would feel a bit of pain in her heart in the middle of the night.
But this was her first time in the desert and it might be because of the climate, so she didn’t pay much attention.
But now it seemed like it wasn’t that simple.
“This shouldn’t be……”
“Hai, Li Chuan.” A beautiful girl from the expedition team walked in and waved her hand at Mu Li Chuan, “You’re still worried about your little girlfriend!”
She was called Su man, a girl who liked to explore a lot. She had long curly hair and wheat coloured skin that made her look very sexy.
