In the past, his eyes would always be on her. But now……he didn’t look at her once.
There were only two possibilities, he either didn’t dare or he wasn’t willing.
She wanted to give herself a reason. Even if she failed the mission, even if she let go, she wanted to give herself a reason.
Did Mu Li Chuan really change his mind like he said, or did he have a reason for this?
Eyes didn’t lie. If he looked into her eyes and said the same thing……
She never would forget the glow that came from his eyes.
Mu Li Chuan looked over and a pair of eyes as deep as the sea fell onto her, looking into her eyes. He softly said, “I don’t love you.”
At that moment, Luo Qing Chen felt her head go blank.
She felt the uncontrollable tremble of her hands in her pockets. Those eyes that were as clear as water had a layer of mist over them.
“You……” She bit her lip and said in a choked voice, “Say it again……”
There were some people that liked acting dead and liked repeating things again and again.
But they didn’t. She just hoped that this last time wasn’t a lie and saying it again would cause some miracle to happen.
Maybe……he wouldn’t say these words again.
Mu Li Chuan gave a gulp before his lashes trembled and he said, “I don’t love you, Luo Qing Chen.”
The snow falling down became heavier and the snow fell onto her hair, onto her lashes, onto her clothes.
Falling into……her eyes……
Then she rubbed them and said, “The snow got in my eyes.”
Drop after drop of tears kept falling like broken pearls.
The emotions that she had buried deep in her heart erupted instantly.
“Go back first.” Mu Li Chuan looked away, “Lan Zhi being alone in the room……I feel worried.”
As soon as his voice fell, he didn’t say anything else and turned to head back into the hospital.
Luo Qing Chen trembled and instantly ran forward, grabbing his wrist.
The snow fell harder as if even the heavens was saddened by her emotional breakdown.
Mu Li Chuan stopped, but he didn’t look back.
A few seconds later, with red eyes and biting her lips, Luo Qing Chen asked in a choked voice, “Why……But why?”
She thought……that she would never have to do something like this.
She thought……that if a person didn’t like her, she would be able to turn and leave no matter who it was.
She thought……that she would never hold back a man who’s heart had changed about her.
But everyone had their weakness and everyone who lost love would lose more than they thought.
“Why would you ask this question to a man whose heart has changed?” Mu Li Chuan raised his right hand and broke free of her grasp, “If you don’t love something, you don’t love something. You’re so smart, you should be able to figure it out.”
These were the last words he said to her here.
Without turning back, not even sparing a glance.
Luo Qing Chen watched him walk into the hospital. In this unfamiliar city, there was only this familiar back.
His promise to her at the engagement ceremony still rang in her ears. But in just a few months, he told her that he didn’t love her anymore.
What had happened with Lan Zhi in the snowy mountains?
He said that she was injured saving him, but she had seen Lan Zhi……she didn’t seem that seriously injured.
