Silly Woman, She Was Disturbing Someone's Sleep
As he looked at the teary-eyed Qian Lan, Mo Zichen couldn't resist gently leaning over and placing a kiss on her lips.
At first, Qian Lan was a little surprised. But, slowly, she began to close her eyes...
Mo Zichen didn't know why he was being impulsive; he simply didn't want to see Qian Lan cry. 5 years ago, when she cried, his heart softened for her. Now, 5 years later, the same thing happened.
Qian Lan stopped crying, but she couldn't hold back her sobs.
Mo Zichen watched as Qian Lan helped him apply medicine to his wounds, but he did not say another word. Wounds like this were normal for him, but for Qian Lan, it was a huge shock.
"What department are you in? The special forces? Or is it a secret organization?"
"Don't ask me anything, it's of no benefit to you," Mo Zichen said before he stood up from the sofa. "Besides, these injuries are nothing. After all, the biggest injury is the one you gave me."
"I'm sorry," Qian Lan replied. "I'm honestly sorry, but the mistake has already been made and I've already been punished for 5 years because of it, Zichen..."
"While you punished yourself, you also punished me." After speaking, Mo Zichen entered the kitchen; he promised that he'd make dinner.
That night, the couple sat quietly at the dining table. Qian Lan looked at Mo Zichen while he had his head down and said, "I will try my best to be a good wife."
Mo Zichen did not reply immediately. Only after he finished eating, did he say to Qian Lan, "If you want to become a good wife, then you should wash the dishes."
Qian Lan was a little surprised as she nodded her head, "OK."
Qian Lan was ecstatic, even though Mo Zichen only gave her a slight response.
As bedtime hit, the couple entered the bedroom one after the other. When Qian Lan noticed Mo Zichen was already lying in bed, her cheeks flushed red because he had no shirt on.
But, when she approached and saw the scars on his body, her eyes almost turned red again.
Afterwards, the couple lay together in bed. Qian Lan gently touched a scar on Mo Zichen's back and imagined how much pain he was in when he received the injury.
"If you keep touching, something bad is going to happen. Go to sleep," Mo Zichen's voice traveled into her ears. But, she did not feel threatened by these words. Instead, she moved her lips towards his back and gently kissed the scar.
Mo Zichen froze. A moment later, he turned around and looked at Qian Lan. Their gaze met as a countless amount of emotions flooded their eyes...
"I already warned you!" Mo Zichen suddenly trapped Qian Lan between his arms and pressed her beneath his body.
"You're...injured!" Qian Lan reminded.
"Don't underestimate me." Underneath the blankets, Mo Zichen's hands quickly removed the pajamas on Qian Lan's body. But, as he ran his hands across her body, he did not feel any desire to kiss her.
The trauma in his heart was still there.
In the end, he helped her put her pajamas back on and rolled back to his side of the bed, "My wound hurts."
Qian Lan's gaze turned dull.
Soon, Mo Zichen's steady breaths echoed through Qian Lan's ears. At this time, Qian Lan stood up, wandered over to the floor-to-ceiling window in the living room and looked out into the distance.
She was about to leave for a mission and she didn't know how long it would take before she'd come back. It wasn't easy for Mo Zichen to finally relax a little around her, if she had to wait another 10-14 days, when would she fully win his heart.
The army was holding a competition amongst the new recruits. As an instructor, she naturally had to attend...
So, she had to leave at 5am.
After thinking carefully for a short while, Qian Lan returned to the bedroom and kneeled down beside the bed. As she watched the sleeping Mo Zichen, she gently reached out her hand and patted him on the head, "I'm sorry, Zichen. I know that no matter how many times I apologize, there's an obstacle in your heart that we can never get past. I don't know what you want and I don't know how to comfort you. I want to beg for your forgiveness, but I don't know where to start. I really don't know what to do."
"As soon as 5am hits, I will need to leave again. This time, it may be another week. You don't know how much I want to get a response from you."
"Forget it, I asked for all this. I won't blame you."
"I simply hope that you won't torture yourself by holding back."
After speaking, Qian Lan stood up and headed to the study room. She knew that she wouldn't be able to lie sleepless next to Mo Zichen for an entire night.
Amidst the darkness, Mo Zichen opened his eyes and painfully rolled over.
Silly woman, she was disturbing someone's sleep...
Before 5am hit, Qian Lan woke up to find a sandwich and a glass of warm milk on the table.
Qian Lan was a little surprised, but she quickly realized who prepared it for her and her heart lit up with joy.
Did he hear what she said last night?
After finishing her breakfast, Qian Lan placed the medicine that Mo Zichen needed to reapply on the dining table and left a note, reminding him to use it.
When Mo Zichen woke up and saw her reminder, he rolled his eyes, "If an intelligence officer used such cheap medicine, how long would they have to suffer in pain?"
The medicine he used was special. It was something that wasn't sold to the public.
But, even though he said this, he still held the medicine in his hands. His actions did not match his words.
This time, Qian Lan left for 10 days. During these 10 days, she did not contact anyone.
Mo Zichen understood how the military operated and knew that even if he tried to make a phone call, he would not be able to get through to her. So, he decided not to bother her.
Qian Lan hoped every day that Mo Zichen would find her and contact her, but no matter how long she was away from home, it didn't seem like Mo Zichen cared where she was and what she was doing. In fact, it didn't seem like he cared if she was dead or alive.
Qian Lan had a photo of Mo Zichen with her. It was a photo that was given to her during her teaching days, when her friend first introduced her to him. Judging by the angle of the photo, it was taken without him knowing. Whenever Qian Lan had some free time, she would take out the photo and look at it. This made many of her colleagues laugh at her, "Are you still not with the man that you dream about all day?"
"We're together now," Qian Lan replied.
"Then why don't you contact each other?" her colleague asked nosily.
"Yes, why don't we contact each other?" Qian Lan couldn't help but ask herself.
"I bet it's a one-sided love. That man never agreed to be with you, right? Forget about it, focus on your mission. These new recruits are all troublemakers. There's absolutely no time for me to think about relationships!" her colleague patted her on the shoulder as a sign of comfort.
Qian Lan chuckled and put away the photo in her hands. Her colleague was right, it wasn't the time to be thinking about relationships.
But, early the next morning, before Qian Lan even woke up, someone ran in and reported, "Instructor, something's wrong, a few new recruits have wandered into the restricted zone. There are land mines in there!"
"Then why are you still standing around? Hurry and find them!" Qian Lan immediately got out of bed. These new recruits couldn't give her time to relax.
However, Qian Lan had no idea that this rebellious action would almost take her life!
Well, Zichen needs something to happen in order for him to feel the wound he is feeling now is incomparable to the wound if Qian Lan leaves the world for good. Then he'll learn to appreciate Qian Lan more instead of being stuck in the old wound.
Dont die. Dont. DIE. PLEASE. DONT. DIE. dont get seriously injured also!!!
Cant wait for the next chapter.
