Entrust My Life To You - Chapter 54
Translated by: Blue Shine
Later on, when I finished my second degree, I had less time to go back to my dormitory.
Later on, after getting to know a hefty knowledgeable foodie — the librarian Uncle Q was able to create a feeling of having drunk abalone juice instead of bean juice
Later on, I met L, a girl from South China who loves desserts and crafts, and decided to be a SOHO translator.
Later on, I met many senior brothers and sisters, among them, I quite admired Shao Jiang.
Later on, I got to know Silan, an artist with a natural sense of vagrancy.
Later on, Uncle Q resigned from his office after suffering a stroke.
Later on, L got a blood disease, and I brought my first box of handmade chocolates to her funeral.
Later on, the senior brothers and sisters went on to further study and no longer intersects with Shao Jiang.
Later on, when Silan went far away, I could only receive postcards from thousands of miles away.
My great teacher seems to be a parting one after another. Those who left me good memories eventually left one by one.
“I didn’t come back after graduation, I don’t know why I came back.
“What I remember most clearly now is that on a rainy day, I kept doing exercises all the time in the postgraduate entrance examination classroom until more than 1 a.m. Isn’t that bad?”
Gu Wei smiled, took my hand, and started walking around the campus.
We went to the library, checked the class schedule, and sat in on a professional class. After hearing this, Gu Wei shrugged: “It’s more boring than I thought.”
We went to the grocery store and bought the extra-large puffs I used to like very much. Gu Wei finished eating one: “Can you eat three at a time for something so hot and sweet?”
We went to the football stadium, sat in the stands, and watched the friendly match between the two faculties in the first half. I was betting on one side. As a result, Gu Wei’s team won, and I invited him to dinner.
We went to the entrance examination classroom, where I used to sit as a little girl who was immersed in the study.
Going to the piano room, Gu Wei stood quietly beside me and watched me play an instrument a Turkish song variation.
When we went to the dormitory building, I pointed to my former dormitory and showed it to him. Gu Wei raised his head looked at it carefully: “The lighting was good.”
In the evening, we went home by bus and I leaned on Gu Wei’s shoulder. My mood was very calm.
He said: “You have to experience some unhappiness before you can experience happiness.”
In many movies and novels, when the heroine meets the hero, she was always described as “I lived a meaningless life before I met you”.
But after meeting Gu Wei, I gradually feel that everything I experienced before I met him was meaningful, good, or bad.
Once I thought it would be nice to meet each other earlier. But now I only think that it’s true happiness to meet each other at the best time without missing it. The more you age, the more you understand about the meaning of happiness
The old couple’s love pattern.
When we were in love, we haven’t spent time as other lovers. We try to spend more time together. Either Gu Wei came to school, or I went to the hospital or his apartment. Even so, when both of us were busy, we often didn’t see each other for two or three weeks, so the holiday becomes a precious time for us to get along.
During the first summer vacation, I stayed in Y City for nearly a month and returned to X City. When I returned, the railway station was crowded. When I got out of the station exit, Gu Wei came and pulled me out, just like escaping.
I couldn’t help crying and laughing: “Doctor, since when have you become so unstable?”
Doctor: “We haven’t seen each other for almost a month.”
I thought about it and said, “This is normal ah.”
The doctor blew up: “You don’t want to be in love like an old couple!”
I couldn’t help laughing.
Our date was very old-fashioned. Cooking, chatting and listening to music. It’s not complicated at all, because it’s something pleasing to be under the same roof.
Doctor: “I brought back what you sent to my mailbox.”
Me: “A recipe? It’s specially made for a small family of two. It looks healthy and delicious, with photo-illustrated. You should study hard.”
Doctor: “Let me check.”
Me: “En. I’m in charge of vegetarians and you’re in charge of the meat.”
Doctor: “Is there a division of labor among family members in the recipe?”
Of course not, because I seldom touch fresh meat. So I said confidently: “You are a professional, and you are more skilled than me.”
The doctor always said that I described him as a butcher.
I went to Gu Wei after washing the dishes. He was trimming a pot of duck palm wood on the balcony.
I prefer to enjoy flowers and plants than gardening. If I were to raise them, I would often forget to water them. Therefore, I admire Gu Wei’s patience and memory.
Looking at him leisurely holding scissors here and there, I asked, “Is your temper so good since childhood, or have you been honed by your parents?”
Gu Wei: “Guess what?”
I looked at him from top to bottom: “Do you think the world is peaceful and all living beings are beautiful since you were a child?”
Gu Wei: “I’m not that stupid. My work and life are all good. Is it necessary to be bad?”
Men have a lot of dreams in their hearts, and they hope to make great achievements one day, faced with reality, frustrated and angry feelings are always there. There was a senior brother who was also a popular figure at school. He was very high spirited, had a beautiful girlfriend by his side, and makes everyone envied. After graduation, he signed up for a very good joint venture, and his girlfriend got into the firm. Everyone thought that the golden couple would continue to have a smooth ride. Two days ago, the senior brother went back to school. The whole person was bleak. After three rounds of drinking, he sighed, “What the fuck is this world?” The boss made things difficult and his future was uncertain. When he was commited to be faithful, his girlfriend cheated on him.
Senior Brother sighed, “No matter how deep the affection is, it is no better than a sports car and a foreign house, and no matter how strong your ability is, it’s no better than a gilded sea turtle.”
(*TN: “Sea turtle” in Chinese (海龟) is a homophone of the term for a student returned from study overseas.)
The crowd was filled with sobs.
Me: “In the end, the men’s tears came out. He lamented that the so-called achievement of a career is nothing but a mirage. Twenty-seven percent of the career is love and nothing is achieved.”
Gu Wei took the scissors, washed his hands, and said, “Tell him that he will have them when he is 30.”
