But I'm Lacking You

Translator: Yunyi Editor: Yunyi 

That night, Mo Ziyan and Gu Qingli confirmed their standpoint and became an official couple.

After returning to her dormitory, Mo Ziyan lay on her bed and tried to think of Gu Qingli's face. Her face immediately turned red and her heart began to race; she had never expected her dream to come true.

Gu Qingli was too charming. So charming that it was like he had stepped out of a painting. Yet, this man actually held her hand...

It seemed, Mo Ziyan was destined to have no sleep that night...

The next day, Mo Ziyan got out of bed with a pair of dark eye bags, giving her roommate a fright, "Ziyan, did you stay up all night? Why are your eye bags so bad?"

Mo Ziyan immediately went to the bathroom to check the mirror and discovered that her eyes were completely swollen and unsightly. But, she still had Gu Qingli's class that day.

Although she wanted to attend, she couldn't go with that face. So, she ended up skipping the class even though she knew Gu Qingli would be angry...

Not long after the class ended, she received a phone call from Gu Qingli as expected. On the other end of the phone, he calmly asked, "Why weren't you in class?"

"My eyes aren't feeling well. Ever since returning home last night, they've been swollen."

"Come to the library at noon," Gu Qingli said gently. "I'll wait for you there."

Mo Ziyan had no choice but to apply a little bit of makeup to cover her eyes. When she arrived at the library and found Gu Qingli, she lowered her head to prevent him from seeing her dopey appearance.

"Lift your head," Gu Qingli said.

Mo Ziyan lifted her head reluctantly and tried her best to open her eyes. She could imagine that her image was completely destroyed at that point. But, Gu Qingli simply gave a gentle chuckle and helped her massage her eyes.

"Did you not sleep last night?"

"Uh huh," Mo Ziyan nodded. "I couldn't sleep. I was afraid I was dreaming."

Gu Qingli smiled as his hands moved even more gently, "Do you need me to remind you every day that you're not dreaming?"

"It doesn't feel real."

Mo Ziyan's head was lowered and her eyes were swollen, but Gu Qingli felt that this Mo Ziyan was extremely cute, so he couldn't help but place a kiss on her lips, "Does this still feel like it's not real?"

"One more kiss and it should feel more real."

Gu Qingli massaged her eyes and replied, "Let me help you make up for your missed class. You can go home after this. From now on, you're not allowed to skip any of my classes. Others might not show support for me, but as my girlfriend, are you not showing me support either?" 

"You're not lacking in popularity."

"But I'm lacking you," Gu Qingli said as he flipped open his textbook and began to help Mo Ziyan make up for the class she missed.

Actually, Mo Ziyan was fine with this because she knew that Gu Qingli was only serious because his class was truly easy to fail. 

He simply wanted Mo Ziyan to pass so she'd no longer be tormented by this stressful course.

Mo Ziyan stared at the man she loved and felt like she was filled with energy, so her eyes no longer looked so uncomfortable.

During the time it took to complete a class, Gu Qingli did not waste a single minute of Mo Ziyan's time. After he closed up his textbook, he said, "Go home and get some rest. I won't call you out for dinner tonight."

"No...but I want to have dinner with you," Mo Ziyan immediately responded.

"Then I'll give you a call after class," Gu Qingli said before he picked up his textbook, patted Mo Ziyan on the head and left the library. Meanwhile, Mo Ziyan's heart was left blooming in joy.

As soon as she returned to her dormitory, Mo Ziyan immediately went to catch up on sleep and, of course, her dreams were filled with the charming Gu Qingli.

Mo Ziyan slept until Gu Qingli called her, but when she stepped out of bed, she noticed her roommate looking at the information that Gu Qingli printed for her.

"Ziyan, didn't you print this yourself?"

"Yes," Mo Ziyan immediately started avoiding her roommate.

"I see Professor Gu's writing on there..." her roommate asked suspiciously.

"You're mistaken," Mo Ziyan said as she snatched the papers out of her roommate's hands. "As you know, I've got a crush on Professor Gu, so I like mimicking him."

"I guess so. If there was a test on Professor Gu, you'd probably get full marks." The roommate easily believed Mo Ziyan's explanation and did not ask any further.

Mo Ziyan held onto the information and found a new place to store it. She then headed out to look for Gu Qingli.

The couple had pre-arranged to meet outside the school. Today, Gu Qingli did not wear a suit, instead, he appeared in a white shirt and blue jeans. Even in the simplest outfit, Gu Qingli still appeared extra charming in Mo Ziyan's eyes.

"Would you like a tissue?" Gu Qingli asked as he looked at Mo Ziyan's infatuated gaze.

"Stop teasing me," Mo Ziyan complained. "You must be feeling really proud."

Gu Qingli chuckled and grabbed onto Mo Ziyan's hand, "Of course, I'm proud to be worshipped by my girlfriend like this."

Mo Ziyan looked down at their intertwined hands and her heart began to race. But, after a few steps, Gu Qingli suddenly stopped and let go of her hand.

Mo Ziyan didn't understand what was happening as she noticed an elegantly dressed woman standing not too far away with a 7-8-year-old boy.

Mo Ziyan had a hunch that there was a relationship between this woman and Gu Qingli.

As predicted, as soon as the street light turned green, the woman sped across the road with the little boy and approached Gu Qingli, "Son, do you have time for a chat?"

"We have nothing to talk about," Gu Qingli said as he grabbed Mo Ziyan's hand again and dragged her away from the mother and son.

As they walked, the couple did not say anything. Only when they had wandered a fair distance away did Mo Ziyan finally hear Gu Qingli's voice, "Ziyan, can you go somewhere with me?"

"Yes," Mo Ziyan replied.

Afterwards, Gu Qingli led Mo Ziyan to his car and drove to an extremely quiet cemetery.

Mo Ziyan was a little scared, but Gu Qingli had his arm around her the entire time.

"Are you scared?"

"It's fine. You're here," Mo Ziyan replied.

Soon, the couple reached the grave of Gu Qingli's father. Judging by the photo on the tombstone, Gu Qingli's father also seemed quite charming and unconventional. No wonder Gu Qingli was the way he was.

"My father was a sculptor, but at the age of forty-one, he was diagnosed with lung cancer. To cure him, my family sold all our assets. However, to our surprise, my mother ended up investing all his life-saving money into the stock market. In the end, my father died painfully."

"Since then, I have lived on my own. Due to my decent academic results, I was supported by a scholarship until I graduated from university. After that, I made some investments and gained a decent amount of money."

"I brought you here today because, not only is it my father's birthday, I also want you to see the true me that's been hidden away."

"I don't think I can ever acknowledge my mother again in this lifetime. Is that something you can accept?"
