After leaving the F class, Chen Hai was already waiting outside. Just when the car started to move, Mu Rulan received a call from Lan Yiyang. The young boy seemed to be in a temper, ordering a punch of food and then hanging up with a slam.
Mu Rulan blinked and seemed to be lost for a moment. After a while, her eyebrows lifted and a helpless smile overtook her face: “Uncle Hai, let’s go to Loulan Court.”
“Are you delivering food to that master again?” Chen Hai asked.
Ever since that first time Mu Rulan visited the hospital, Chen Hai had already delivered all the information to Grandpa Ke. Grandpa Ke tended to dote on Mu Rulan, so he knew that his baby granddaughter was too kind at times. He immediately had Lan Yiyang investigated. Then, learning that child was actually from the Lan Family, he let Mu Rulan be. As the eldest son of the Lan Family, Lan Yiyang was the sole heir to that family. It wouldn’t hurt to let Mu Rulan befriend him.
Nobody knew what Grandpa Ke was thinking. He actually wanted to give one-third of the Ke Family properties to a granddaughter. Of course, this news wasn’t widespread, or else Mu Rulan’s life definitely wouldn’t be as peaceful as it was now.
Mu Rulan nodded her head, a soft smile on her face. The autumn breeze blew in from the window, and she gently tucked her hair behind her ear, her beautiful eyes reflecting a golden light.
Of course, Mu Rulan wouldn’t follow Lan Yiyang’s burdensome request to bring a lot of food; instead, she selected some with the best nutritional value.
No matter where she went, Mu Rulan was striking. Just as she left the car, a lot of people were distracted by her appearance, like she emitted a natural light.
There were quite a lot of people in the elevator; patients, guardians, and nurses. They unconsciously moved and made space for Mu Rulan when they saw her. Mu Rulan gave a slight smile and thanked them. She was like an angel that attracted people to draw nearer, yet they didn’t dare, because a crude mortal might scare the angel away.
By the time she reached the VIP floor, Mu Rulan was alone in the elevator. The silvery white glass revealed the young girl’s beautiful figure and the warm smile on her face.
“Ding!” The door to the elevators opened, but a figure suddenly appeared before her, falling in her direction.
Mu Rulan immediately stretched out her hand to support that falling body, but because it was too heavy for her and she had no time to brace herself, not only did she fail to support him but she herself began to fall due to the impact. At the very moment they were falling to the ground, Mu Rulan noticed something and immediately stretched out her hands…
“Bang!” The two fell inside the elevator, but since their legs were still outside, the doors didn’t close.
Hiss…… Translated by The Novelst
Mu Rulan furrowed her brows. A man’s head rested heavily on her arms. It was quite painful for her, especially because the ground was a little pebbled.
“Argh… Gosh…” Lu Zimeng was out of sorts after the fall. He grimaced in pain for a few moments, slowly trying to get up but having difficulty. A pair of warm hands at his back assisted him. Only then did he realize that someone had rescued him. No wonder he didn’t feel that much pain; he would have thought he would’ve had a concussion and his other leg might have broken with the force he was falling at.
“Thank you ah…” Lu Zimeng held on to the bandages wrapped around his head and turned to see his savior. The face that appeared in his sight was a warm, smiling face. He was stunned for a while, his mouth wide open but speechless. Th-this, wasn’t she…
“Are you alright?” Mu Rulan helped him stand properly and picked up the crutch on the floor.
Lu Zimeng, stunned, took the crutch from Mu Rulan and couldn’t help but feel flattered. Although he’d heard of Mu Rulan, he’d never had any interest in such a callow girl. So of course he hadn’t paid any attention to her. In these last few days while following Mo Qianren stalking Mu Rulan, he only felt that this kind of girl wasn’t suitable for their world. She was too well-protected, and too kind like an angel. But now… this angel was actually close to him, and in that instant he was healed by her smile.
Mu Rulan thought this guy had seriously injured his head. “Where is your room? I’ll take you back.”
“No need.” Just as Lu Zimeng was going to accept her kind offer, an icy tone rang out from nowhere. It was uncertain since when he had been there, but Mo Qianren stood far from them with a white shirt and black pants.
Mu Rulan stared at Mo Qianren, and Mo Qianren stared back at Mu Rulan.
Lu Zimeng’s eyes darted between the two. He suddenly felt that the man was like a clear fountain, while Mu Rulan was like a warm stream. If it wasn’t Mo Qianren who had the thought that Mo Rulan was involved in a crime, he felt that these two would be the perfect match.
The sound of his leather shoes on the floor was crisp and clear. Mo Qianren walked to Mu Rulan’s side and took Lu Zimeng away. His cold gaze scanned Mu Rulan’s left arm and flickered as though he’d noticed something, but he remained wordless. He just took another look at Mu Rulan and supported Lu Zimeng to walk away.
Mu Rulan had her smile at the corner of her mouth as usual. She turned around and picked up the things on the floor. Just when she used her left arm to reach out, pain wracked her body. She almost dropped them again, so she hurriedly changed to her right arm.
Tsk, she accidentally did a kind deed again. Translated by The Novelst
That day, Lu Zimeng’s urgent call to Mo Qianren was because they’d met a loon in the bar who was quite sturdy. He’d gotten drunk and bumped into Lu Zimeng, then insisted that it was Lu Zimeng who had bumped into him, and the two had started to argue until it came to blows. Both ended up in the hospital.
Lu Zimeng had a bone fracture in his left leg and a slight concussion. Just now he’d gotten bored staying inside his room, so he thought of walking around with his cane. But he noticed that walking with a cane wasn’t as easy as it looked. Not only did he need to put in a lot of strength, his leg was also under pressure so it was painful to walk. That was why he had no choice but to rest in front of the elevator door and did not see it coming when it opened. That was how he ended up falling on Mu Rulan.
“Damn, it’s so painful.” One of his hands rested on Mo Qianren’s shoulder. He was trying as hard as he could to get back to his room while unhappily blurting out profanities. Mo Qianren didn’t react, spaced out when Lu Zimeng turned his head to say: “Don’t tell me you’re thinking of something creepy again?”
Lu Zimeng didn’t believe that Mu Rulan was some kind of murderer at all. She had given him a hand just now, and this furthered his belief against Mo Qianren’s suspicions.
Mo Qianren glared openly at him, not saying a word. Just now he was inside the other elevator and as the door opened he saw Lu Zimeng fall to the ground. It was too late for him to save him, but he managed to witness the entire thing, which included Mu Rulan’s immediate, unhesitating reaction to grab Lu Zimeng and cushion his fall.
Was she trying to prevent Lu Zimeng’s head from becoming more injured?
If so, that was very weird. If she was an abnormal murderer who cruelly killed three people and was still able to pretend at normalcy, surely her sense of defensiveness should be high. When a normal person encountered this kind of situation, most people would take a step back to escape from danger due to their subconscious awareness. However, Mu Rulan held him and even hurt herself while protecting others…
