“Don’t……Don’t cry……” Mu Li Chuan almost picked her off the ground.
Wiping away her tears in a panic, he gently patted her head, “I went to find you after waking up and I was almost scared to death when I couldn’t find you……”
After going to the desert, he understood his heart even more.
At the moment of life and death, the only thought he had wasn’t whether he would live, but if she would live.
It should be that this thought always existed in his mind that he knew just how important she was to him.
“Mu Li Chuan……” Luo Qing Chen’s every word trembled.
It was a trembling that came from the heart. That was because she knew……how they came out of the desert when they didn’t have any water.
But the young man in front of her didn’t say a word about it.
“Don’t cry.” Mu Li Chuan took two tissues to wipe her eyes, “A Luo Qing Chen that cries isn’t pretty at all.”
“Mu Li Chuan has never said that I was pretty!” Luo Qing Chen said in a choked voice, “So what difference is there if I cry or smile?”
“There is!” He gently patted her back, “I hope that you will always smile and never cry.”
This truly was good, none of the tragedies had happened.
He had lived and she was still by his side.
“I……I want to ask you a question.” She gently raised her hand and held the tear soaked tissue. She looked at Mu Li Chuan with red eyes and said, “You……We……How did we get out of the desert?”
It was as if time stood still at that moment and there was only the sound of the clock ticking.
Seeing his pale face under the faint light of the corridor, her heart ached.
She lost to him in the end. After all these years, she met someone that would give their life to her.
But she couldn’t use anything to repay this.
“I lifted you, carried you……” Mu Li Chuan narrowed his eyes and looked at her with a tender look, “Just like that, I walked out step by step.”
Actually, if it wasn’t for the desert, they wouldn’t have survived.
At some point, he even missed their days together in the desert.
Because in that world filled with sand, there were only the two of them.
It was as if there were only the two of them in this world and no one could disturb them.
“You know……You know that’s not what I’m asking.” Luo Qing Chen bit her lip and her voice choked up as she looked at him to say, “You know……That I’m asking about how we clearly didn’t have…….”
“Ke, ke……” Before Luo Qing Chen finished, Mu Li Chuan cut her off with a cough.
His deep eyes looked at her and said, “Let’s not talk about this, let’s just talk about the results, alright?”
Actually, he knew exactly what she wanted to ask, but he didn’t want to talk about it.
Because he didn’t want to see her look of guilt, her look of self blame.
“What……What do you mean?” Luo Qing Chen gave a blink. There were some tears on her long lashes and she pursed her lips, looking charming and aggrieved.
“The process is the desert and I saved you. The result is……” He paused for a second to look at her before saying, “Whether young miss Luo is willing to repay me with her body.”
[Ding, affection has increased by ten. Mission completion rate is now 80%.]
Luo Qing Chen didn’t really understand why even though he was the one that was confessing, he was still giving her affection.
Could it be that she looked too miserable and pitiful while crying?
