At that time, Man Man had no time to realize the meaning of his words. When she came back to her senses, she had already been dragged by him for a while.
The little face was red from the sun, and the lower shadow overlapped with his tall figure, and the light was so mottled that she dazzled her eyes.
The group reached halfway up the mountain. Chu Xia was the first to find a stone bench and greet others to sit on it. Seeing Man Man being dragged by Jiang Yan’s elbow to slowly walk up the stairs, Chu Xia smiled crookedly, and said, “You guys are pulling carts.”
Du Yu who was drinking water spouted out.
Man Man raised her eyelids, never knowing that Chu Xia was so eloquent, staring dryly.
Chu Xia afraid that she would really be angry on her, she sat down first, handed her a bottle of mineral water, and quietly approached her ear and said: “We hardly to come out and play together, just relax and enjoy the happy moment will do.”
She squeezed the lid of the mineral water bottle with her fingers, but she couldn’t unscrew it yet, and Man Man was sweating all over her body. She didn’t know if it was because of what Chu Xia had just said or was thinking about what he had just said.
Jiang Yan and Du Yu sat shoulder to shoulder under the tree to enjoy the shade.
“Has Man Man never had a boyfriend before?” Jiang Yan asked eloquently. Man Man looked like he had never been in contact with a man.
It stands to reason that Man Man is twenty-nine this year, it is impossible that he has never talked about a relationship.
When Du Yu talked about this, he felt sad for Man Man: “Don’t mention it. You should know the environment of her home? Just her mother who likes to make trouble without reason, how many good men have to be discouraged.”
Jiang Yan, who unscrewed the lid, suddenly had no intention of drinking water.
“If it’s her mother, let’s forget it, mainly her group of younger sisters.” Du Yu said this, real anger, “Everyone thinks they are royal descent.If Man Man makes a good love partner, they feel wronged. If Man Man makes a bad love partner, they feel that Man Man shames them. “
If it is a man with a normal mind and a good life, he will not want to approach Man Man when he hears Du Yu say this.
Du Yu dared to say that he was also betting on Jiang Yan’s sincere interest in Man Man: “Man Man is a mediocre person, her job is not good, and her family background is not very good too.” Du Yu put his hand on Jiang Yan’s shoulders: “By the way, buddy, what do you like about Man Man, I will give you a reference.”
“I like Man Man, but I like her It’s really unreasonable.” Jiang Yan said that he was embarrassed, and the corner of his eyes couldn’t help looking at Man Man.
Man Man has been struggling with the mineral water lid, her face tight.
The spontaneously clear temperament from the inside cannot be concealed, like a ray of clear light that stunned his eyes for a moment.
Jiang Yan thought: For such a good and innocent girl, there must be a good man to cherish and take care of.
The rustling, rustling, and wind rustled, feeling that his two beams of sight passed through the gap between the branches and fell on his face like a condensing light, and Man Man gently turned her face to another side.
How long hasn’t she been in contact with boys?
As far as I know, when the boys close to her know who is in her family, she can’t even compare to Yuanyuan who is not short-sighted in appearance. Her family is the worst in her family.
Because it didn’t happen at the beginning, she didn’t even have a boy ever told her to like her.
Man Man’s heart gradually became colder with this matter, and occasionally thought that it would be good to live a lifetime by oneself. However, why has a man suddenly appeared and said he likes her?
Man Man’s heart was beating again and again.
Looking at the sky, there is no cloud, the air in the mountains is fresh, and the breeze is breezy. There are more and more tourists going up the mountain, most of the tourists are getting younger and younger, and there are many groups of age tourist go to the mountain.
A group of about ten young people climbed up.
The bottle cap in Man Man’s hand could not be unscrewed, but when she raised her head, she ran into the face with Wen Hao Xue in the crowd.
It’s too late to hide.
“Sister Man Man?” Wen Hao Xue’s round face has always had a rich expression, and she was surprised to see the smile of her loved ones. It was only three seconds in the middle, and the camera couldn’t take a picture of her transition expression. “Sister Man Man, are you here alone? It’s boring to play alone. If you said it earlier, we could come together.”
Who wants to come with her?
Chu Xia, who sat next to her and hugged her friend, immediately said: “Man Man didn’t come alone.”
Seeing Du Yu and Jiang Yan sitting under the big tree, Wen Hao Xue’s eyes smiled into two brackets.
Not to mention that Jiang Yan broke down, according to Wen Hao Xue’s understanding, Du Yu and Chu Xia also belong to white-collar workers such as the moonlight clan and have no money. So, Man Man, you should be careful when making friends. You made two friends who didn’t have money to help you match up. Didn’t you get caught? Reading this, Wen Hao Xue really “sympathized” with Man Man.
Standing there, motionless, and eager to stop, Wen Hao Xue really attracted the attention of his companions.
“Hao Xue, is it your sister?”
“Yes. My cousin sister.”
“Are you alone? If you are alone, let’s play with us. It’s fun if there are many people.”
“I think too, but my sister is not willing.” Wen Hao Xue said with infinite regret.
“How could it be unwilling?”
One or two eyes looked at Man Man, and then she saw Chu Xia, Du Yu, and Jiang Yan not without surprise. Now many girls’ eyes brightened when saw Jiang Yan Handsome face.
The handsome guy with red lips and white teeth is the most precious of non-sissy, and his slightly provocative long eyebrows are full of masculine temperament.
Seeing that everyone’s reaction was the same as she thought, Wen Hao Xue released a bomb: “Don’t look at him like this, he actually has other abilities.”
Carefully, everyone can imagine it.
Those sugar baby who specializes in eating soft rice.
The girls giggled, no longer restrained, picked up their fingers and pointed at the handsome guy.
Du Yu was annoyed and wanted to stand up, but Jiang Yan held his shoulders.
“Don’t be angry, Brother Yu. I’m not angry.” Jiang Yan tilted his mouth and raised his eyebrows, showing his hostile arrogance, making a group of little girls’ blush.
Didn’t you say that you have broken down?
Proud like this?
Wen Hao Xue couldn’t resist it anymore: This man, who expression or gaze, would look like a shameless settlement? It’s not that she and my family have made a mistake.
Seeing that even the little cousin was suspicious, Man Man had even greater doubts about it in her heart.
A group of little girls whispered in exclamation.
Jiang Yan, who stepped on his long legs, suddenly sat next to Man Man, swept Man Man in his arms like a bird, Man Man’s small face was too late to turn red, and suddenly he heard a gentle sentence from the corner of his mouth:
“You are right, I only want her to support me.”
Man Man’s brain was blown to a blank.
Wen Hao Xue and a group of girls retreated at full speed.
“I said, Hao Xue, your sister is so pitiful, she actually put on a shameless sugar baby who stated that wanted to eat soft rice.”
Little finger hooked into the ear hole, Jiang Yan only cared about Du Yu and Chu Xia who were leaning forward and backward with a smile, and he could leak his details at any time.
The petite body in his arms moved, and Jiang Yan realized that he had gone wrong and hurriedly released his hand.
But Man Man’s face is not red and her heart is not beating, and her voice is calm and natural: “Mr. Jiang, we really are not suitable.”
At night, turning on the flashlight in the bed, Wen Man lay on the bed and quietly pulled out the letter paper from the cowhide envelope.
On the dark stripes of the red bars, the free and easy pen and ink marks are like his character:
“Hi Man Man, dear Man Man,
What to do?
Because of your bowl of instant noodles, I think about it day and night, and think about your bowl of instant noodles every day.
I think I, Jiang Yan myself, have never missed something like this for thirty years. I was afraid that I was poisoned or ill. I ran to the hospital. The doctor diagnosed me: You are miserable. You are poisoned. If there is no antidote for this poison, it will invade the internal organs.
I thought about how this doctor’s words resembled the poisonous symptoms of martial arts masters in the Eight Divisions of Heavenly Dragon, which was clearly not credible.
However, when thinking of you, my heart hurts.
Even if I was in pain, I never thought that I would die. This may be the place I am most proud of, Jiang Yan himself. However, I will be afraid, you hate me——
I Jiang Yan has not tasted the taste of being hated by people, but if the taste of being hated by people I like, I Jiang Yan has tasted it for the first time, it is you, Man Man.
Man Man, I like you.
Will you blush over this sentence?
I fantasize about this question every day, fascinated, and I am afraid that if I ask you this question in person, will you say to me annoyingly:
Mr. Jiang, how I hate your handsome face.”
Seeing this sentence, Wen Man’s mouth grinned.
Wen Yuan, who was sleeping on the lower bunk, turned over.
Wen Man hurriedly covered her mouth with her hands, and involuntarily swept down the letter paper, reading word by word:
“Actually you don’t know me.
There is a scar on the back of my neck, which is very ugly.
Don’t hate me so much, okay?
I like you so much.
I Jiang Yan swore to heaven，
I confess to women，
This is the first time in life，
So, it’s not difficult to get to know me, Man Man, let’s meet again … N times.
When the time comes, maybe you will tell me：
Mr. Jiang, of course your handsome face can make me angry, but I don’t hate you.”
Looking at the complete letter, the smile in the corner of her mouth smiled into her heart, warmly.
If he wanted her to laugh and want her to be happy, he did it.
After folding the letter and putting it back in the cowhide envelope, Wen Yuan below suddenly said: “Sister, are you asleep?”
As soon as the flashlight was pressed, it was turned off immediately.
However, Wen Yuan has found out that she is not sleeping, and the exit is a series of unforgiving complaints: “You go to work at nine o’clock every day, and I have to go to class at 7: 30, do you know? ！”
Wen Man wrinkled those two long and supple eyebrows slightly, looked at the dark ceiling and said: “I’m sorry, Yuanyuan, I just couldn’t sleep.”
With a bang, Wen Yuan turned over violently on the lower bunk. The shock caused the entire duck bunk to shake up and down, accompanied by an angry roar: “It’s better if you can’t get into a good university. Do you think I can’t get into a good university?” !”
The lower lip bites the mark tightly, Wen Man suppressed the ups and downs of her chest: “Yuanyuan, if you are really capable, you will be admitted to the Central Academy of Fine Arts and then you will say this to your sister!”
After waiting for a long time, Wen Yuan below did not dare to make a sound anymore.
The smile on the corner of Wen Man’s mouth fell off little by little and sank into the darkness. Thinking of his letter, she suddenly thought in her heart:
Mr. Jiang, if you know our home is like this, would you still like me?
After Jiang Yan sent out the love letter he wrote for the first time in his life, his heart was as happy as a flying bird. He had insomnia that night, so he called Du Yu and asked if he could ask Man Man out again.
“We only met today, and we will meet again tomorrow?” Chu Xia was surprised.
“I think he is so enthusiastic, but he is a bit sincere.” Du Yu is very confident in Jiang Yan.
Chu Xia recalled and said, “You are not wrong in what you said. So far, I have never seen such a person chasing Man Man like this.”
“I think…” Du Yu turned to his side and discussed with his wife face to face, “It’s better to find a time for four of us to go out in the countryside. On the one hand, the two of us have not been romantic for a long time, and the other in terms of giving them a chance for intimacy.”
“Okay.” Chu Xia really thinks this suggestion is very good, so Man Man should be allowed to walk around and breathe fresh air, and stay in that Wen’s house, and sooner or later will be pissed off.
Wen Man heard that Chu Xia asked him to come out on the weekend again, and became a little wary: “Who else is there besides you and me?”
“You are responsible for preparing the picnic in the suburbs, and I will arrange the rest.” Chu Xia shamelessly.
Wen Man really didn’t know how to say it, maybe that letter had taken root in her heart. When she saw Jiang Yan appear as expected, she did not reject it in her heart.
Jiang Yan borrowed Mo Wen Yang’s vehicle. Du Yu was going to drive, and Chu Xia had to sit in the front seat with her husband, and the remaining two had to sit in the back seat.
The luggage was picked up on the car, and it was converged and set off at the door of the company.
Wen Man, who was sitting in the back seat against the car window, almost put her face on the cold window.
The first time she was so close to a man, her heart was dry and her face was dry.
Seeing her cramped and cautious, Jiang Yan kept smiling in his heart, surreptitiously stretched out his hand, and touched the end of her white fingers with his fingertips.
Wen Man was startled, and was about to retract her fingers, but was clamped by his fingers.
Immediately afterwards, his fingers were inserted between her five fingers along the gap between them, twisted like vines, and the warm heat flowed through the fingertips into the mouth of her heart.
The tea-coloured glass in the car window reflected the smile on the corner of his mouth, and Wen Man saw that he felt as if he had knocked over the jar in his heart.
“What are you thinking about?” Jiang Yan found the suspiciousness on her face and leaned involuntarily.
Wen Man’s small heart thumped several times again, and the smell on his body spread a little bit into her nose. It was a fresh and clean soap fragrance, like a freshly cut lemon. Her little face, smoked by this lemon, was flushed like a tide of water.
In Jiang Yan’s eyes, the beautiful beauty in front of him was like a delicious red apple, causing his throat to itch and his lower abdomen to heat up. He licked his lips thirsty, but when he saw the beauty so shy, he dared not deviate.
These ten wrapped fingers were wrapped all the way to the end.
The breath of spring is strong, the weather is not cold or hot, and the outing is just right.
Along the road, I saw a lot of young people who travelled together, and there were many couples.
When going up the mountain, Du Yu and early summer shook hands.
Man Man followed behind, very nervous in her heart.
Such a scene reminded her of college.
Too young and too wanton, she felt dreamy and unreal, thinking she was still at home this morning and how to save money if really want go to Beijing.
A voice wrapped around her ears and lowered her ears, a thick warm breath teasing people.
Man Man jumped aside like a frightened bird.
Jiang Yan has never seen such a restrained girl. The smile in his heart couldn’t help but the corner of his mouth, pointing to the flower beside the road: “Do you like it?”
“Like—” Seeing him doing something to pick, he hurriedly “Hey”, stop it, “It’s not good to pick flowers.”
The shy show hand is quite courageous now, grabbing his half-sleeved arm.
When I realized it, Xiao Shou suddenly retracted it again, and the electric shock was not so fast.
Can’t help it, I can’t help it anymore.
He grabbed her little elbow, and he raised Ying Ting eyebrows to her, his eyes lit up like stars: “Miss Man Man, you have to believe that this beautiful man of me can’t be a hooligan.”
Don’t look at Wen Man’s usual warmth. Once it’s true like this, the two crescent eyes behind the big black glasses can bluff the place of life.
Jiang Yan didn’t dare to say a little at this moment anyway. The burning smell from the pot made him realize how many mistakes he had made. But before going out, he didn’t forget to find a pair of gloves everywhere, handed them to her, and said cautiously: “Wear them, be careful not to burn your hands again.”
So, Wen Man raised his pretty eyebrows and finally recognized him. Without taking over the gloves, she just asked: “Why are you here, Mr. Jiang?”
“I am Du Yu’s friend.” Jiang Yan heard her read Mr. Jiang, knowing that she remembered himself, and smiled handsomely, “I didn’t expect to meet you here.”
“How did you meet Du Yu?” Wen Man’s eyes were pointed.
“I knew Du Yu before.” Jiang Yan was about to poke a hole in her face as she stared at him, keeping his style, and smiling.
Wen Man didn’t know how to describe him, saying that he was a shabby man, but the courage of this kind of gesture was nothing like an ordinary family member. So, she twisted her eyebrows a little, and whispered: “If you are really friends with my senior, then I really misunderstood you. After all, the last time you went back to the Wen family, it seemed that your friends were all rich people.”
“How is it possible that my friends are all rich people? Especially with income like mine.” Jiang Yan raised his eyebrows slightly unhappy when she heard her say this.
Wen Man thought for a long time, but couldn’t catch any suspicious points in his words, and said with a long sigh: “So, are you really Du Yu’s friend?”
Seeing that she believed in himself, Jiang Yan nodded: “Since we are all friends of Du Yu, then we are also friends.”
If Wen Man can’t hear the meaning of this, that’s weird. Therefore, the white and tender skin of her pointed little face was slightly red, and it dimmed again when she thought of her mother Xu Yu’e’s reprimand that night.
Although she herself is so old, she shouldn’t marry herself casually. Of course, it doesn’t depend on whether the other party has money, but the character of a man is ultimately the most important thing. But this person is not going to mention it. The worst thing is that it seems that only good looks are desirable.
Jiang Yan saw her face red and white, and asked in a low voice: “What’s the matter?”
“Mr. Jiang, I have to clarify if there is something. I don’t think I and you are suitable. I believe your world is better than mine. You should have had many girlfriends.”
“Who said that I have many girlfriends?” Jiang Yan seemed to be a little angry when she interrupted her, his brows frowned, and his face turned to one side and said in a deep voice, “I thought you and your family People are different, and they don’t look at me with colored eyes.”
Wen Man should have been blocked by the slightly heavier sentence behind him, and seeing the look in front of him, he was not at all frivolous, and today he is not as fashionable as he was at the dinner gathering that night, just like Du Yu. Wearing a normal shirt and blue and black pants, showing some elegant student spirit.
Jiang Yan reached into his trouser pocket. After moving a little his eyebrows, he took out a simple cowhide envelope, slapped it into her hand, and turned around and walked out of the kitchen.
In the living room, Du Yu saw him come out and asked, “What’s wrong, aren’t you helping in the kitchen?”
“I accidentally burnt the vegetables.”
“Burning! You burnt the vegetables?”
Du Yu’s voice suddenly increased, and Jiang Yan was slightly surprised.
“Oh. The dishes cooked by Man Man are exquisite and very delicious.” Du Yu touched his chest somewhere, distressed that the delicacy at noon was missing one dish.
Jiang Yan saw someone feel distressed because of the food for the first time, and was slightly surprised again: “Is it delicious?”
“Very delicious.” Du Yu raised a finger mysteriously, “As long as you have eaten it once, you are sure to be infatuated.”
Speaking of being very delicious, Jiang Yan licked his tongue to the corner of his mouth, looking back at the instant noodles Wen Man had made for him that night, the taste was unparalleled.
But Du Yu put his hand on his shoulder and asked, “Are you making Man Man angry?”
Jiang Yan mumbled, thinking that when Wen Man was angry, those eyes were quite scary.
“How did you make her angry?” Du Yu comforted him on the one hand and asked carefully about the whole process on the other.
“I’m worried about her hand.” Jiang Yan slowly explained the reason.
Du Yu understood what was going on and smiled and asked him not to worry at all, “Man Man knows better than us when it comes to kitchen work. She has never been burnt for so many years. She knows exactly how hot it is. By the way, she will not be burned.”
Jiang Yan listened to him repeatedly assuring that his handsome eyes still looked at the kitchen door again and again.
Seeing him like this, Du Yu couldn’t help but recalled himself when he fell in love with his wife Chu Xia, so he believed a little bit about what he said.
After half an hour, the meal was officially opened.
Four people are sitting around a small square table. After Chu Xia placing the last dish in the middle, she patted her hands and said, “Come on everyone, let’s start to enjoy our wonderful lunch.”
That’s what I said, Du Yu and Chu Xia had a good heart, and they didn’t move their chopsticks immediately. Du Yu spooned a bowl of soup and put it in front of Jiang Yan, and said, “Try it.”
Wen Man tufted her eyebrows, touched her hand down, and she could touch the cowhide envelope in her pocket.
Jiang Yan, who was sitting across from her, picked up the small soup bowl, and after taking a sip slowly, a pair of clear eyes looked over through the mist from the mouth of the bowl.
The moment Wen Man received his gaze, she yanked her head down, put her hand in her jacket pocket and grabbed the envelope, and frowned sharply.
Chu Xia and Du Yu looked at them peacefully as if they were looking at each other, smiled at each other, and raised their chopsticks.
“Where does Jiang Yan work?” Chu Xia was a substitute for the buddies to inquire about each other’s situation.
“I go to school and work in Beijing.” Jiang Yan replied, “So if you are going to Beijing this time, I can be a tour guide.”
“What about the specific job?”
“For the time being in the unit of the army, doing jerseys.” Jiang Yan said, “Because it is an unstable public office, so I don’t have as much money as other friends.”
“But not afraid. At least you have a job now. My first request of my husband is also, don’t be lazy.” Chu Xia smiled.
Wen Man raised her eyebrows when she heard this. Who even told her a few days ago that she couldn’t find a man without three things, now?
Moreover, don’t look at the three people talking and laughing, the chopsticks never stopped for a moment, and the whole eight dishes and one soup had been swept by these three people in ten minutes. Of course, Chu Xia and Du Yu ate a lot every time it was her turn to cook. Today is no exception. However, this newcomer is like that night, as if he has been hungry for eight lifetimes, after the first bite, immediately drank three bowls of soup in one breath.
To this end, she bent her crescent-shaped eyes contentedly, pushed the big black glasses on the bridge of her nose, and covered herself.
Wen Man didn’t know about Jiang Yan’s visit. Every time she works, even if the sky is thunder, she will not be distracted.
When she got off work, Wen Man washed her hands at the sink. Chu Xia came over and said to her, “Man Man, are you free this weekend?”
“Anything that I can help you?” Wen Man asked.
“My husband came back from a business trip and wanted to eat a big meal.” When Chu Xia said this, her eyelids kept blinking.
Wen Man looked at her with her head tilted: “Chu Xia, what’s wrong with your eyes?”
“It’s okay! Maybe I just ran back from the outside and got into a little sand, and it was okay with a blink of an eye.” Chu Xia Forte pretended to rub her eyes and spoke.
“Okay. Since your husband is back, if you want to reward him, I suggest you still engage in a few dishes of home-cooked food in this season. Because in the spring, it is better to have a lighter diet.” Wen Man knew exactly why her good friend said this, and she planned it for her good friend.
“Man Man. You know, I’m not familiar with cooking or something, otherwise you come and help me.” Chu Xia pulled her hand and asked sincerely.
Wen Man smiled and said, “Okay, my dear Chu Xia.”
Chu Xia is Wen Man’s best friend. I remember that when Wen Man was in college, she suddenly fell ill and didn’t dare to tell her family that it was Chu Xia who took care of her day and night in the hospital for a week. She also used her own scholarship to help Wen Man, who had no money to pay a large amount of medical expenses. From that time on, Wen Man determined that no matter what request Chu Xia had, she would never refuse it. As for the husband of Chu Xia, Du Yu, he was a senior they met in college. He is two years older than them. Although he doesn’t look very good, he is generous and honest. The most important thing is that he loves his wife’s Chu Xia very much. He advocates that all family expenses should be paid by men. Therefore, the wages received by Chu Xia never need to be paid to the family and used by oneself. If the husband is like this, what can the wife ask for? Therefore, Wen Man’s goal to find a man is this kind of good temperament, and everything else is secondary. Unfortunately, she never met one.
On the weekend, Wen Man took a bag of apples and went to Chu Xia’s home.
Chu Xia lived with her husband and rented a house of tens of square meters. It’s not that Chu Xia and her husband don’t want to buy a house, but they just don’t know where they want to officially settle down. This city cannot be said to be bad, but the hometowns of Chu Xia and Du Yu are not in this city. The two couples are still young and want to work together for a better world. So long ago, the two of them had the idea to go to Beijing to build their own universe. Today, Du Yu has found a better job in Beijing, and wants to take his wife to the north soon. Chu Xia has also agreed and inform the company that she might leave at any time.
On the way to Chu Xia’s home, Wen Man thought about Beijing. She also wanted to follow Chu Xia to Beijing. Beijing is the national cultural centre. As an artist, she naturally thinks of Beijing. As Chu Xia said, Wen’s family is full of things, and she can’t get married at home anyway. Being seen will only embarrass her parents. It’s better to go abroad to avoid suspicion.
If she wants to go, it’s best to go with Chu Xia and have a care.
Wen Man rang the doorbell, and Chu Xia came over to open the door for her and said, “Come in. My husband is going to bring a friend home by the way.”
“Four people?” Wen Man asked.
Put the picked apples into the refrigerator. After Wen Man washed her hands, she went into the kitchen to help Chu Xia prepare lunch. With Man Man’s help’, Chu Xia only helped in the kitchen for a while then walked out, set the table and chairs, put the tableware, and cleaned around the house by the way. After all, there were guests who wanted to come over.
When it was almost time, Chu Xia heard the click of the door lock, and Chu Xia immediately walked to the door. After the door opened, facing the two men standing in front of the door, she put her finger to her lips and said, “Man Man doesn’t know yet. I didn’t tell her.”
“What are you afraid of?” Du Yu grabbed his wife’s hand and smiled heartily in a manly style. “Jiang Yan is indeed our friend now.”
So, the person following Du Yu is Jiang Yan.
Speaking of Jiang Yan met Chu Xia in Wen Man’s company that day, and after expressing his intentions, he asked Chu Xia about Wen Man. Chu Xia learned that this man was not a real shabby prince, and that she was very concerned about her buddies, so she revealed a little bit of Man Man’s hobby and so on. After seeing what happened to Wen’s house that night, Jiang Yan knew that Wen Man was not a frivolous woman who could get an appointment or date casually, so he asked for Chu Xia some trick. Chu Xia immediately said, “Let’s have a meal together.”
The idea of Chu Xia is: If this man can really taste the goodness of Wen Man from Wen Man’s meal, then there is absolutely no problem entrusting Wen Man to this man. At the beginning, because of Wen Man’s meal, she became Wen Man’s most dedicated best friend. Wen Man really good in cooking, most of the food she cooked like drugs, always make us miss her cook. It is also because Wen Man’s family is usually constantly picky about her cooking, which leads to her continuous improvement and continuous progress, so that she has today’s cooking skills.
After the two men entered the door, they asked, “Do you need any help?”
Chu Xia thought about it, and said, “Do you want to drink? There is a bottle of red wine left in the house. Let’s open it.”
Because there is no special corkscrew for red wine, the two men delved into using other tools to pry open the corks of wine bottles.
Wen Man suddenly shouted in the kitchen: “Chu Xia, come and help!”
It just so happened that Chu Xia entered the room, looking for something, but couldn’t hear it. Du Yu thought about it carefully, pouted his lips toward Jiang Yan and motioned. Jiang Yan accepted this kind offer with a smile and walked into the kitchen alone.
The kitchen of Chu Xia is a long strip, and the passage is a bit narrow, so two people can barely stand side by side. When Jiang Yan walked in, he saw the ponytail on the back of Wen Man’s head turned into a small bun, clamped by a green hairpin, and the little woman was full of charm. He stagnated and paused at the door. The rich aroma of the soup rushed toward him to make him energetic, and the beautiful woman in front of him seemed to be surrounded by clouds.
“Chu Xia!” Wen Man was the ear of the soup pot on the stove with two hands, and cried, “bring over the raw onions on my scratching board, hurry up!”
Waking up by the sound, Jiang Yan took a closer look at this moment and found that her two hands holding the soup pot were burnt red. This frightened him. After a stride, he grabbed the soup pot in her hand and put it back on the stove, then took her two wrists and pulled it under the faucet.
Splashing———–the water hit the shrimp red skin, and it turned white after a short while.
He exhaled deeply: Fortunately, nothing happened. However, soon, his spine swished into coldness, seeing Wen Man’s crescent eyes fixed on his face. Those cold sober eyes seemed to have caught the thief. Perhaps he was guilty of the thief. He thought so, and his hair stood up, and he hurriedly let go of her hand and explained: “I, I didn’t mean to—”
However, Wen Man ignored him. Instead, she immediately turned off the stove as soon as she smelled the scorching smell. After opening the lid and seeing the burnt vegetables, she suddenly turned to face him: “Get out! Don’t enter my kitchen in the future!”
“What are you angry about?” Mo Wen Yang drove the Dong Feng Feng Shen sedan that had just bought one hundred thousand yuan. He was refreshed. He dialled his bangs with one hand and said Jiang Yan with a smirk on his mouth. “This shabby prince is You have to pretend to be, and if someone makes you angry, you can’t blame others.”
“I’m not angry that people think I’m shabby prince.” Jiang Yan Ying pulled out a strong body, lying on the car chair lazily, crossed his hands on the back of his head, and the slightly hooked corners of his mouth filled the boy’s naughty taste. However, thinking of Xu Yu’e’s angry face, his piercing eyebrows frowned slightly, and the corners of his mouth flattened and said, “What about you? You stayed in Wen’s house for so long, which girl did you fancy?”
“The only thing you can see is that you caught it first?” Mo Wen Yang raised his eyebrows, knowing that the Wen family had all ran to the balcony to witness the rendezvous between a man and a woman, but unfortunately, he could not see it with his own eyes. Just ask the person concerned.
The car happened to pass by a streetlamp, and as the light flickered in front of him, Wen Man’s little white face flashed, like a warm little lamp dangling in front of him. Jiang Yan felt warm in his heart, and suddenly felt that Jiang Yan’s heart was filled with a kind of inexplicable homely warmth.
Seeing that he was completely distracted, Mo Wen Yang couldn’t help but shrink his mouth to whistle: “Hey, do you really have a crush on someone?”
Jiang Yan was startled by these words, and his eyebrows tightened again. That’s right, Wen Man is a very good girl, with a good temperament and a kind heart; but her family is top-notch. He Jiang Yan has been in the society for so many years and he has met many people, but he has never seen someone like the Wen family. For such a superb money worshiper, Eugénie Grandet also need to step down gracefully. Therefore, if he is a normal man, he would never want to have contact with Wen’s daughters.
Mo Wen Yang seemed to have guessed what he was thinking. He looked at the road conditions ahead and said casually: “It is not at all like the senior intellectual family my dad said. Maybe Wen Shi Rong and his wife and daughter pretend to be more similar, but other the elders look very vulgar briefly. As for the girls, they are actually okay.”
“When they heard that I had impoverished family, all of them ran away.” Jiang Yan didn’t want him to argue for the Wen family, and coldly told the truth.
Mo Wen Yang saw that he had made it clear that he hated the Wen family, shrugged and frowned reluctantly: “Okay buddy, let’s take it as a trip out this time. There are no wonders in the world, and there are all kinds of people, so let’s look at the excitement and see the novelty.”
“Yes, if you don’t come out like this, you won’t be able to see people like Wen family in this world.” Jiang Yan raised his handsome eyebrows, and the corners of his arrogant mouth evoked amusement. Apart from the depression, the experience of being treated and almost hungry tonight is really a strange story. Moreover, it was the Wen family who had this kind of superb quality that allowed him to discover such a strange woman as Wen Man. Thinking of the bowl of instant noodles, he licked the corner of his mouth, as if it was not the delicious bowl of instant noodles, but the taste of Wen Man. That night, Wen Man kept flashing in front of his eyes, almost occupying his dream of the night.
The next day
Wen Man arrived at the company the next day and talked to Chu Xia about the blind date last night. He also touched his stomach and said, “I almost starved to death.”
“Who told you not to eat Japanese sushi with me?” Chu Xia raised her eyebrows, not ready to sympathize with her, “Why, did you miss the handsome guy at the expense of his belly?”
“There are handsome guys.” Wen Man thought about the shabby prince last night, and a sigh was pulled from his lips, “Unfortunately, he is not rich.”
“It doesn’t matter if you don’t have money, you just have a car and a house.” Chu Xia analyzed for the buddies, and now the renminbi is depreciating, buying a house is the best way to keep the value.
“He doesn’t have a house or a car, anyway, everyone in our family looks down on him.” Wen Man “hey” deeply. This sigh is not that there is no money in the poor settlement, but how can this poor settlement be so proud.
Three no poor people. Chu Xia also sighed deeply and put her hand on the shoulder of her best friend: “Man Man, listen to me, this man who has nothing, really can’t get married.”
“What nonsense are you talking about? I didn’t like him.” Wen Man finished speaking, moved her hand away, tied an apron and went to work in the mounting room.
In the afternoon of the same day, after Jiang Yan found out which company Wen Man was employed in, he urged Mo Wen Yang to take him to see it.
Mo Wen Yang was surrounded by a group of people last night, and had no time to glance at Wen Man. He had long wanted to see what the woman who had captured Jiang Yan looked like, and for this reason he was filled with curiosity about Wen Man. He agreed to Jiang Yan and hurriedly drove the car to the company where Wen Man was located. First, he ran into Chu Xia at the door holding the paperwork, so he asked about Wen Man’s whereabouts after showing his identity.
Chu Xia saw the two of them dressed very well and came over in a car, “Hey”: Didn’t Man Man say that it was a shabby settlement? Could this be the handsome guy Wen Man said last night?
“Didn’t Wen Man work here?” Mo Wen Yang saw that she never said a word, and he couldn’t help but feel puzzled.
At this moment, Jiang Yan dazzled the sight of the beautiful woman, left his buddy Mo Wenyang, and walked straight to the other side of the aisle in the office building.
In the indoor floor-to-ceiling windows installed across the office building, Wen Man’s slender and soft figure lay on the workbench, like a sculpture under the fluorescent lamp, with a layer of fine sweat already secreted from the tip of his small nose.
The most difficult part of the mounting work lies in patience and care. A little carelessness will ruin the original author’s efforts. Therefore, mounting is a separate skill, and a good mounting master has the same value as an outstanding painter and calligrapher. It’s a pity that most people don’t understand the depth of this industry.
It was four years after graduating from university that Wen Man decided to transfer to work in the mounting room. She originally studied art design, but later found that her personality was not suitable for this job, because the current advertising agency pursues fashion, and the industry atmosphere is rather impetuous. Wen Man’s temperament has always been slow and tidy, and she likes to concentrate on pursuing the ultimate in detail, which is more in line with the requirements of the decorator. However, after all, she is a newbie who started late in this industry. The salary for her first arrival is not high, so after so many years of graduation, her salary has been in the range of two to three thousand, which can be regarded as a low-level powder collar in big cities.
Jiang Yan knows a little bit about mounting, because there are elders in the family who are good at calligraphy. Watching Wen Man’s small hands repairing the remnants of the painting little by little on the copy table, her dark hair is tied in a gentle bun on the top of her small head, and the soft shadow is drawn into an oblique photo. It is already a painting of a classical lady like ink painting, which is exciting.
Mo Wen Yang walked up to him at some time and looked at Wen Man in the framed room with him and said with a smile: “So you like this type of woman.”
Jiang Yan didn’t argue with him, a pair of star-like handsome eyes stayed in Wen Man’s posture for a long time.
Out of curiosity, Chu Xia walked behind them and listened to the conversation between them. Suddenly he was suspicious: Is it really a shabby settlement?
Jiang Yan narrowed his eyes to Chu Xia when she walked over. After turning around, he first looked at her. Seeing that she was not as secular as the Wen family, he asked: “Are you a good friend of Wen Man?”
“Yes. Is there any problem?” Chu Xia always looked at him with a puzzled look. The two handsome guys standing in front of her are obviously more heroic than Mo Wen Yang.
“How long is a good friend?”
“It’s been ten years since college.” Chu Xia unconsciously slowed down his tone, because this handsome guy brought arrogance that ordinary people don’t have when asking questions, and seemed to like to speak under pressure.
Mo Wen Yang saw Chu Xia’s slight fear and smiled and interjected: “Don’t get me wrong. He is not that kind of person, just used to giving orders.”
“What do you mean?” Chu Xia seemed to have discovered the New World, and her eyes flashed brightly.
Jiang Yan was worried that Wen Man would find out that he called her to the corner with a handsome face, but he looked at her from the corner of his eye and said, “Could you please help me keep a secret with your friend and your friend’s family first.”
“Why did I do this for you?” Chu Xia had to consider what this person was trying to do with Man Man and asked tit-for-tat.
“What I can assure you with my life is that I will be nice to your friend Man Man.”
Chu Xia raised his head and read a clear light in the man’s eyes: He was serious.
Chapter 3 – The throbbing of a bowl of instant noodles brewing
“Sister Hao Xue, I will show you something interesting.” Wang Shao Han slipped into the study-room and pulled Wen Hao Xue out of the crowd.
Mo Wen Yang was still performing calligraphy in his study-room currently.
Disturbed by a little kid, Wen Hao Xue put up with his temper, and immediately stared after walking out of the study-room: “What’s the matter?”
Wang Shao Han took her to the balcony and pointed to the intersection: “Look, who is sitting with whom?”
Seeing the shabby prince sitting next to Wen Man, Wen Hao Xue’s eyes brightened, and she stroked Wang Shao Han’s head: “You stinky boy, with blazing eyes, worthy of praise. Go! Pull out your parents and have a look.”
Wang Shao Han pursed his mouth, and unwillingly, he pulled Wen Hao Xue out, just not wanting to inform him.
Wen Hao Xue didn’t know what this kid was thinking, she grabbed him a cheek, and said: “Go and drag the other sisters out.”
Wang Shao Han laughed, hehehe ran into the study.
So, after a minute, no female relatives were watching Mo Wen Yang in the study, and all of them slipped to the balcony.
“It’s time for Sister Man Man to get married. If she doesn’t marry again, what shall we do as younger sisters?” The sisters are all babbled. Although this is not so bad for a shabby settlement, some people want to get married. That’s pretty good.
The elders think so too: “Yeah! No matter how poor he is, he is still a man, and a woman must find a man to live.”
Isn’t this taking the opportunity to ridicule? Everyone gossiped about her daughter being not outstanding and that she was a pair of ragged shoes that no one wanted. While Xu Yu’e was choking, she grabbed her little daughter: “You run down quickly and call your sister up.”
“Mom. I won’t do such a shameful thing.” Wen Yuan held her breath just like her mother. She had long felt that it was useless to have an older sister who couldn’t let herself show off in front of her classmates. Now Wen Man can only choose to settle down because she can’t get married, and it’s even more embarrassing.
“Speaking of which, the sister-in-law is really true. Nowadays, when the girl is still a college student, the family has to arrange a blind date so as not to get married late.”
“Sister-in-law and eldest brother gave Man Man the name it really is, Man Man, doesn’t it sound the same as Wan Wan (Means “Late” in Chinese)?”
Not only was Xu Yu’e embarrassed, but Wen Man’s father Wen Shi Xuan also just came over and heard this, the middle-aged man’s old face was equally black.
So, if daughter can’t get married, the outsiders don’t blame themself, and the first target is the child’s parents. Some parents bear it on their own, and some parents usually endure enough to be spoken by others in society. They can’t bear it when they come home, and their anger is vented to their children.
Wen Man was a bit unlucky, and what she met was this kind of parents who like to go home to show off their anger.
The chirping on the balcony. Wen Man and Jiang Yan are far apart, and they didn’t hear them. They just sat full and sat in their original positions for a while.
“Your name is—” Jiang Yan asked.
“Wen Man.” Wen Man said in a very ordinary tone.
Jiang Yan looked at the big black glasses on the bridge of her small nose and almost dropped to her lips.
She is not the kind of beautiful woman.
The facial features are not bad, the nose is small, the lips are small, the eyes are a bit small, the face is thin, the fingers are long, and it is not a beautiful face, but her face will be pleasing and comfortable if everyone looks at it for a long time, because her expression is always with a faint smile, like a “carefree” cloud in the sky.
“What about your name?” Wen Man was a little uncomfortable with his eyes. Although she knew his name, she asked politely.
“Jiang Yan. [Yan] is a derivative of [Yan], and the word [Xing] with three dots of water in the middle of the word [Yan].” As if worried that she could not figure out his name, he took her a hand and made gestures on her palm.
It was the first time that Wen Man was squeezed by a man. Her eyelids blinked in surprise. She wanted to retract her hand, but she was afraid of being rude, so she could only endure it in silence.
“Do you know which word it is?” Jiang Yan lowered his head when he saw her, and asked with some worry, his face closer.
“I know.” Wen Man immediately retracted his hand when he relaxed a little. However, there was his residual temperature in his hand, the feeling he had just touched, but the strange things made her remember deeply. His hand is not as arrogant as he himself, with a thick cocoon, which can make people feel that this person is gentle but actually very powerful.
Wen Man suddenly felt that his heat was spraying onto his face, and he raised his angle of view unconsciously, and found that he was close at hand, looking at her with a pair of smiling eyes. Pulling her brows slightly, she quickly lowered her face, and packed her things to leave.
Seeing her transient look, Jiang Yan was astonished, and then stood up and asked, “Did I do something wrong?”
“I don’t know how many girls you have made such a joke, but I am not used to it.” When Wen Man said this, she only looked at the flower garden by the roadside. She won’t look at his handsome face that don’t know has bewildered how many girl’s hearts.
Most of the good-looking men are the easier to be distinguished and admirable. This is almost a constant law.
Jiang Yan immediately realized that she had misunderstood, and this made him care very much, which he had never cared about. So, when she was about to start her step, he rushed to her to block her.
The Wen family on the balcony almost stared now they saw Jiang Yan stopping Wen Man.
“Oh my God. Does this shabby prince have a fancy to Sister Man Man?”
“Good deed, sister-in-law, congratulations.”
Xu Yu’e turned around and left the balcony after listening to the cynicism of the crowd.
“I… I’m not that kind of person.” Jiang Yan danced with both hands and patted his forehead again, “Really, I just think you are a good girl.”
Wen Man blinked his eyelashes blankly to see how he was at a loss: Could it be that he is not arrogant, but not good at speech, so he simply pretended to be deep and silent.
“Hey—” Jiang Yan hugged his head with his hands and showed innocent eyes like a pair of children from his fingers.
Wen Man was also amused when she saw him like this. The corners of her lips were slightly raised, which was cute.
At this time, Xu Yu’e came over and shouted from a distance: “Man Man, come here!”
Jiang Yan heard this cold, arrogant and angry woman’s voice, his eyebrows flicked unpleasantly, and when Wen Man was about to brush her side, she held her hand and asked: “Who is that person?”
Feeling that he shook his hand and used his strength a little bit, Wen Man was taken aback and said, “My mother.”
Is it her mother? It’s not like it at all! Jiang Yan looked at Xu Yu’e’s face with all emotions on her head from afar and frowned deeply. How can such an arrogant woman raise a daughter with rich content like Wen Man?
Wen Man broke away from his hand and walked towards her mother with her head down.
So, when Jiang Yan saw that she walked to Xu Yu’e, Xu Yu’e should have been scolded in a shameless manner. He felt agitated suddenly, and took out his cell phone from his trouser pocket to make a call to his companion: “Mo Wen Yang, how long do you want to play tricks in front of the group of monkeys?”
Mo Wen Yang finished his calligraphy performance early, and while the Wen family ran to the balcony to watch the excitement, he answered his phone and replied: “I can go anytime! If it weren’t for you, this ‘Jiang’s young master’ would like to act, you must know, you will always be my priority in my schedule, wherever you go, I will go—”
“Fuck you! Let’s go!”
Hearing Jiang Yan’s tone was very unhappy, Mo Wen Yang immediately bid farewell to the Wen family after closing the line.
“So fast.” Of course, Wen Shi Rong was reluctant to let go of ideal son-in-law, accompanied Mo Wen Yang to the door, and eagerly asked this young man by the shoulders, “How do you feel tonight?”
“Uncles and aunts are very hospitable.” Mo Wen Yang replied in the tone of a three-good student.
The answer is not what has been asked. Wen Shi Rong was about to continue knocking from the side, due to Mo Wen Yang received another call from Jiang Yan, so he stopped looking at the faces of any Wen family members and went out straight away.
How long is it suitable for two people to be married? A British survey agency conducted a survey of 1,000 couples and found that for couples with a harmonious marriage relationship, the average length of love before marriage is 3 years. “Long-term love and not getting married” may be due to practical reasons, or it may be because in the long-distance love race, the matter of getting married has gradually become less important.
The story is about three people who have been in love for more than ten years but have not entered into marriage. The reason behind of the “Long-term love and not getting married”:
I can’t accept open marriage and choose not to marry!
The reason why my boyfriend and I are not married is me, I am a firm “non-marital person”.
I met him when I went to study in the UK at the age of 23. He moved his family to the UK when he was in junior high school. He is a Chinese with a relatively high degree of westernization.
My thoughts have experienced a relatively big change after going abroad, and ten years ago, I never thought about not getting married or something. Of course, an objective factor is: The sky is high, the emperor is far away, people are abroad, and they are gradually weakened by the influence of domestic traditional concepts. Before the age of 30, the family has been urging marriage, and even came all the way to the United Kingdom to “investigate” my boyfriend.
After crossing the hurdle of being 30 years old, they have been “indifferent” a lot. It may seem that I have lived well abroad, of course, because I can’t get involved.
The reason why I didn’t want to get married was not because of feeling. We only had one time relationship crisis for the past ten years. At that time, it was because my company transfer me to Europe for work study. I was a little distracted by the foreign state. To be precise, I met another person who crushed me briefly. Although nothing happened in the end, it prompted me to reflect on the intimate relationship.
It is certainly a good thing to end from the beginning, but I dare say that it is difficult for most adults to really like only one person from start to finish, although people with a sense of morality know how to stop in action. I personally think that “open relationship” has its rationality, but I don’t recognize “open marriage”. Some people play their own after marriage, but marriage is only an economic bond. I don’t understand what is necessary to maintain this kind of dead marriage.
Similarly, a stable intimate relationship does not need to rely on a wedding certificate to prove anything. Whether I am with this person depends only on whether our relationship is in tune and whether we can support each other’s lives. I have lived with my boyfriend for six years, and I have experienced it together, whether it is daily chores or the larger changes in my life. To be honest, it is no different from married couples.
Recently, because of the impact of the epidemic, our relationship has become closer. Before, we were busy working, and the time to stay together every day is limited. Now we work from home, but we have more time to explore more common hobbies. I heard friends in China say that there was a wave of “divorce” after living in isolation, which further verified my previous view: there is no inevitable connection between a good relationship and whether to marry, and marriage is not the inevitable direction of an intimate relationship.
It can be expected that at my current age, if I still live in the country, I must be gossiped by people around me, even not just me, my family may also suffer. But in the UK, examples like me abound. No one will take us “seriously “. The boyfriend’s family asked us about getting married once “side by side” two years ago, and after receiving no positive answer, they closed their mouths very tacitly.
Later, I would still go to his house for dinner on larger festivals. We live in harmony like relatives. Is it a wife or a girlfriend? Is identity so important?
After 13 years of being together, i “pretended to break up” with my boyfriend in front of my family.
I started to be with my boyfriend when I was 16 years old. This relationship has accompanied me through the purest campus time. Regrettably, I should not be married.
The reason is quite vulgar due both of us are in a different walk of life or so-called ”social match“, and it is impossible to reconcile, but I’m not willing to give up this relationship for more than ten years.
Before graduating from college, our feelings were always in an “underground state”. My family didn’t ask me, and I didn’t say anything. I thought that after one or two years of stable work, I would also be able to have a perfect wedding “from school uniform to wedding dress”. Who knows, this relationship has just surfaced, and it was unanimously opposed by the whole family.
My boyfriend’s family situation is not very good, he is born in the countryside. Although he is very strong himself, it does not change the personality of the “Phoenix man” or so-called “self-made man” in the eyes of my parents. Twenty years have passed in the twenty-first century. My family still believes very much in the “social match” set of things, and this matter is not only opposed by my parents ‘ generation, even the old people at home come out to do my ideological work.
One thing that makes me cry and laugh is that one of the examples given by my grandmother is that my mother just found the “Phoenix man (self-made man)” —– my dad made himself so hard, so I must not let me go back to my mother’s old way. My heart says that my dad has been hard for so many years, and as the economic pillar of the family, he must be secretly despised by them.
The old man was too old, even if he was upset, he couldn’t openly contradict him, so under their strong request, I pretended to have “broken up” with my boyfriend. I only vaguely revealed part of the pressure at home to my boyfriend. He also knows that we want to gain a foothold in Shanghai. At present, we can’t do it by ourselves (the down payment of the house cannot be helped at all at home, and my house is frozen again.), I said that when the two of us are capable, it’s not too late to talk about marriage. At this stage, seeing the parents can only be ashamed.
But as I grew older every year, I sometimes played drums in my own heart. Watching the little sisters around me get married one by one, my “love vanguard” lagged the big army. On the other hand, I really envy those people with similar families who don’t need to worry about these things, even if some of them seem to me to have only met through blind dates, and the feelings between the two are not so deep.
When I was adolescent, I also dreamed of that kind of dreamy wedding. Only after I got older did I realize how many realistic tests must be experienced behind that solemn sense of presence. Houses, cars, deposits, wedding gifts………………a marriage without material security is like a mansion with a weak foundation. I can’t imagine the scene after entering it.
Perhaps as the old saying goes,falling in love is a matter of two people, and marriage is a matter of two families. I have also heard of couples who broke up during the marriage phase, not to mention the problems of supporting the elderly and raising children after marriage, so let’s wait until we have enough confidence to face these things.
When I returned to my family as “single” in name, my mother also offered me a target, but in an attitude of being responsible to my boyfriend, I rejected all of them. I will explain the reason privately if the other person is a little more understanding, and I will blacken the people who are not good at talking.
I have never told my boyfriend about these things. Although I am tired of “acting” on both sides, the pressure of life is already so great that I don’t want to add unnecessary troubles to him anymore.
After being in love for 10 years, we became a couple whose marriage failed.
I was 18 years old with my current girlfriend, and two days is a full ten years.
To be precise, we are a couple who failed to get married.
When I was almost 25 years old, that is, three years ago, my girlfriend and I tried to marry once, because the two of us really got along well. At that time, there was no idea about marriage. Her family had been urging the marriage, and my family was also urging the marriage. We both discussed it and decided to get married.
At that time, I felt that marriage should have no effect on our love, at best it would be more ritual. Our family relationships are more harmonious, and our parents are also young, so we thought that getting married is a more formal relationship.
After the day was set, we started to handle it. My parents played with our enthusiasm for getting married, and immediately acted as the shopkeeper after the tinkering, and went on a trip together. Leaving my girlfriend and I watched the wedding day approaching day by day, they were busy day by day and anxious day by day.
During the three months of preparing to get married, our seven-year relationship almost collapsed. Basically, we ended up arguing for seven years together.
25 years old is the age of struggle at work, and my girlfriend and I are very aggressive. We put a lot of energy on our work, and suddenly we must divide up part of our amateur energy for the wedding, they really give us a terrible headache.
It’s not just a wedding, you must put it on the agenda before you get married to buy a house. The two parents were only concerned about giving orders remotely. My girlfriend and I could only do it, staring at the house, looking for a wedding planner company, and both of us were totally unprepared.
This is when the contradiction arises. Originally, I was going to try on clothes that night(only have time in the evening), but I was suddenly notified that I was going to work overtime. I feel very tired and annoying, It had been postponed twice. I called my girlfriend to inform but who know she was directly on fire, saying that this is not her wedding alone, and asked if I could put more heart on the wedding preparation.
I quarreled with her in the stairwell of the company for more than half an hour. We both complained to each other about how hard and tired we were recently. At the end of the quarrel, she cried and said that if we can’t get along well, then “break up”.
I was stunned at the time, and felt that our relationship for so many years had not broken up no matter how many things. When we quarreled before, we didn’t talk about breaking up with each other, but this time we shook our relationship so easily for a little thing.
Marriage scared me, it started from that moment.
That was the first time I missed work, and I hurried back home to find a crying girlfriend. The two of us carefully analyzed and discussed all night, and came to the conclusion that our relationship itself is okay, and all the problems are the impact of “marriage” on our living conditions.
The two of us were already very busy. The time we needed to be considerate and caring for each other in our relationship was mostly taken away by the trivial matters of the wedding.
Fortunately, we were reconciled in the end, and of course the wedding was over (cancel the marriage event). After explaining to both parents for a long time, they gradually chose to respect our decision.
After experiencing this, I found that not everyone needs marriage as an advancement or bond of relationship. As long as two people are comfortable and can be loyal and love each other, the responsibilities and constraints brought about by marriage become less important.
I have been in love with my girlfriend for ten years, and it is still like our “first love”. We don’t know when we will get married, but I know that it must be the “right time” or “right timing” and it will give us enough time to prepare for the next step.
Marriage is not only about the right person, the right time, but also the right feeling.
There is an essential difference between likeand love, but in real life, too many people confuse love with like.
Explained in the dictionary:
The word like refers to love in general, and happy. To like is a feeling, including appreciation, admiration, love, and worship.
EXAMPLE :We like him because he’s funny. He is happy-go-lucky. When we are with him, we feel like laughing until we want to break our stomachs. But, we won’t miss him very much if we don’t see him for a week… (in other words: like to be directed to someone who can be a comedian to us. We will tell him to shut up if we want to break up…)
Have deep feelings for people or things
EXAMPLE : We do expect him to be ours. Everything we do, if we can, I want him to know … and we probably don’t want to hurt him. We will always think about him. (In other words: love is directed to someone we always remember and dream .. Without him we will feel lonely and we love him wholeheartedly with a sincere heart even if he does not know)
“LIKE” is not equal to “LOVE“. Someone likes flowers but she will pinch them back and place them in a vase to admire them; and those who love flowers will take care of them, protect them, love them, and spend time for them, so this is ” LOVE“.
In fact, people are the same, some people misunderstand likes and loves, and mistake likes for love. Personally, people like things that are beautiful. So, likes are just a kind of appreciation. They are willing to pay for you all their lives, love you, and protect you, tolerate you, appreciate, and accommodate you is really called LOVE.
Like is a kind of appreciation, and love is a kind of responsibility. Like is a kind of pleasing oneself, and love is pleasing to others. Love is just moving your mouth, and love is running and breaking your legs. Love is a kind of sublimation of like!
First, the literal meaning is different. Like in the encyclopaedia means “joy, rejoice, happy”, the main body is oneself, which means to like is to meet something or people that can make me happy. Love in the encyclopaedia means “the happiness of giving actively”, and the subject is the other party, which means that how to do it can make the other party happy.
Second, the distinction between subject and object. In fact, it is mentioned earlier. Like is to please oneself, and love is to please others. Like is to satisfy one’s own pleasant feelings, while love is selfless giving.
Again, the degree of difference. Like is shallow love, and love is deep like. You don’t have to think about it, just follow your heart, thinking too much can be counterproductive!
Like is not love. Do you know why? Let me make an analogy. If you love your parents, you just like your parents? This is not necessarily, it depends on your definition.
“Love” can be selfless, what happens to “like”? “Like” can also mean that you have a good feeling, that is, if you have a good feeling for a man or woman, you can also say that you “like” him, but “love” is not. It’s the upgrade of “like”, and only when you like it, there will be love. It can be said that this is different.
I think like is the predecessor of love, and only when there is like, there is love. They are inseparable from each other. Just like the chicken or the egg came first, whichever one makes sense, the same goes for “like” and “love.”
Although both like and love are produced in the same process, there are still obvious differences between them. For example; when you do something for a person you like, you want her to see and know that you did it for her. And when you love to do something for a loved one, you do it silently, without asking for any reason, because love does not require any reason.
“Like” is like a little grass. Looking at that charming little grass every day, you can’t put it down. Water it all the time and give it plenty of sunshine for fear that it will wither away. When the grass grows up, you will find that you have become accustomed to it, you can’t do without it, and you always want to have it. Once you lose it you will inexplicably hurt, this is “love”.
Without likes, there will be no true love. Direct love, it’s not love, it’s just love formed by trading. Without love, there can be many likes, until you are tired, hated, and disinterested, maybe you don’t like it anymore.
It’s easy to like, but it’s hard to love. Some people like many people in their life, but they can’t get true love. Therefore, Xu Zhi Mo said: I will look for the most precious things in my life that can be known with my soul-mate, career, belief, pursuit, etc. If I pursue it, it is my honor; if I don’t pursue it, it is also my destiny.
Many people can’t distinguish what is like and what is love. Simply put, likes don’t need to be considered too much, and likes can be changed at any time. For example: I can like you today, and I can like her tomorrow. However, love is different. “Love” is restrained. Love is not a matter of one or two days but is permanent.
For example, when you like someone, you often inadvertently try various ways to attract the attention of the opposite sex and let him/her pay attention to you. Like is only a one-sided consideration. Generally speaking, it is not comprehensive, let alone the relationship between the two people from the perspective of the other person. Just thinking about how you treat him/her well. And love, will always help each other silently behind his back. He or she is happy or sad because of his/her emotions, so if you love the other person deeply, then every move of him/her will attract your attention.
Generally speaking, it is just verbal talk, and no actual action is taken. The time for liking someone is short, and will disappear with the passing of time. Loving someone is more than just verbal talk. He/she is full of my mind. Sometimes I can’t help but the urge to find her, contact him immediately, or come to him right away. It’s not just verbal talk.
Like a person, just enjoy the good time now, never caring about what life will be in the future. This is not the case with love. Loving someone will always consider for their future and plan the future lives of the two people.
Personally feel: “Like” is like you are fond of a good apple and want to eat it; “Love” is like you have finished eating the apple you like, carefully planting the seeds in the ground, and carefully caring for it to sprout. Grow into apple trees, cultivate and manage them with all their heart, until the fruit trees are full of apples again, and apples are loved by people…
Love is giving, sincere care and tolerance, do not ask for any return, just hope that the other party is joy and happy.
Like is possession, just want to ask for the companionship of the other party, think that if you pay, you must be rewarded, and if you don’t get any return, you will be preoccupied. These are two different concepts. Like is to pay and want some return, and love is to feel happy when you suffer!
Like is to see your advantages, love is to accommodate your shortcomings, like is to change you in the way he likes, love is that you can be yourself with peace of mind. Truly love a person, after being separated, you will miss it from the bottom of your heart, and you will fall into it when you meet…
Love is a feeling, shallow, temporary; love is a responsibility, deep, eternal.
Love is a lifelong thing, both emotional things, and rational things. Almost all love is long-term, almost always a lifetime thing. But likes are often short-term, although they also think rationally, but most of the time, emotional things seem to dominate, likes can be casual, but the word love often cannot be easily said.
The difference between liking and loving is that you will like a lot of people,and you can do it to like a lot of people. There are not many people you love in your heart for a lifetime, and it is difficult to love and like a person for a lifetime.
Like is the first sight, love is forever;
Like is not hate, love is hate and cannot be separated;
Like is to fall in love with strengths, and love is to live with weaknesses;
Like to want to have sex with you, to love to want to cook with you;
Love is fearless, you hold her hand and firmly believe that you can always be together forever.
Love is about gains and losses. After meeting her, your superiority and pride disappear without a trace, and you live without dignity. You are often worried and afraid of her leaving, because you can’t imagine what to do if she is missing in the future.
Like is the cause, love is the result.
Like is happiness and love is suffering. Only in this way will it be unforgettable and unforgettable.
Love is the starting point, love is the end, from the beginning to the end is the completion.
Love is unlimited giving? Don’t ask for anything in return. Like can be pursuit.
Most of the times, people with good looks like beautiful and handsome ones. Everyone possesses a heart to appreciate what is beautiful. As for love, it is through communication, chatting and socializing, that you can feel the feeling of heart trembling, toss, and turn, and it is difficult to fall asleep. Sometimes a very beautiful girl comes up with jokes or curses as soon as she opens her mouth, and the best image will collapse in an instant. Therefore, love and liking are a progressive relationship. If there is no liking, then there is no love, if you love it then it must be liked.
Of course, there is also love at first sight. The so-called “There is a maiden fair, whom a young man is wooing.” Falling in love is like playing a game called “fighting the landlord”. If you like him, you are willing to show him your biggest card, because you want to show him the best. If you love him, you are willing to show him all the small cards and hole cards, and if he sees your small cards and is willing to lose to you, then he loves you!
However, love can be divided into two types: one is affectionate love: love and affection, one is the love of men and women: love. Therefore, family love is “like + habit”. The love of men and women is “like + hormones”.
Hehe, general engineering thinking likes to formulate complex descriptions. The above can be regarded as formulas.
Like it, no matter how much you love it, it’s nothing more than shocking eyes and lips, delighting, emotional, and emotional! Love is drunk with eyes and lips.
There is a connection between liking and love, and love must first have liking to lay the foundation. If there is no liking, there can be no love in the heart. It can only be deceived. Conspiracy, exchange of material desires, deduce likes and loves to fake sentiments, pretend to be, and play tricks. It is worthy of vigilance, improve the ability of discrimination, and beware of scams.
The difference between like and love is that like is the enthusiasm of love. Love is produced through the fermentation of warm soil. Love has desires. Like does not necessarily mean love. Love must have like. This is the difference, love is no doubt, love is loyal, behaves seriously, is sincere. Like is satisfied, the mood is optimistic about deliberateness, expressing happiness and not disgusting, appreciate the deeds, with the heart, accept quickly and easily give up. Love is heartfelt and warm, licking the heart, seeing blood stains, being affectionate, it is the palliative disease. Once you fall in love, you will not pull yourself away, it is difficult to give up, blast the fire, the passion is surging, the blood just fills the pulse, love does not Lazy.
Like generally pays attention to the outer surface, “at first sight” is casual and wilful; while love pays more attention to the deep inner exchange of ideas, “love is forever” is tolerance, dedication, and selfless giving. Not asking for anything in return. If there is no result if you like someone, you will not feel heartache, but if you love someone with no result, you will feel heartache. To endure the pain is to say the feeling of love, just like cutting out the heart.
Like is like, love is love, the pronunciation and writing of the two are different. Regarding the difference between like and love, some netizens have summed up a sharp response from God:
To like is to take medicine, to love is to take a condom.
I like to miss you, but love can’t help but fall on you.
To like is to sleep with her for a while, to love is to sleep with her for a lifetime.
To like is to untie your clothes, what goes is the kidney, love is to dispel your style, what goes is the heart.
Like wants to take you to bed and have sex with you, love wants to take you home to see your parents.
There is one kind of emotion in the world called “like”, and the other kind is called “love”. Like and love are two different concepts.
Refers to a person who has a good opinion of another person and is willing to associate with him or her. There are older people who like younger generations, including children and peers. There are young people who like their seniors, including outsiders, to say hello when they meet, or are willing to help him or her, without giving back.
Generally refers to the emotion between the two sexes. Regardless of long-term liking or short-term liking, love must go through the process of liking. Only by liking a person can you have a deeper relationship with him and her, deepen mutual understanding, and develop from friendship in the process of getting along. To like, from like to love. It’s just that some of this kind of love is that one side admires the other, and some loves each other.
I think that liking and love are not only related to the relationship between the two of us, but may also be related to our age.
When I was in high school, there was a boy who I liked very much. At that time, I wanted to see him every day after class. I was very happy to see him. During the summer vacation, I called every day at home. I met when I was free. I wrote letters when I didn’t see him. Write a love poem to him, full of joy. That’s it, I didn’t think about anything else, I didn’t hold hands or kiss, but this time of love is strong.
Without knowledge, let me just talk about my opinions. I think there must be love between relatives, and most of them like it between male and female friends!
Let me give you an example. When talking about a girlfriend, I only hope that she is her own. No one can get her. She belongs to her. I want to be together every day. I like it very much! But after getting married, she is no longer a girlfriend, a wife, or a relative! It feels different. You can give your life and everything for her. When she marries someone else can be happier, it can make her live a better life. This is love!
Sometimes when I think about it, what should I do if I suddenly got cancer? Will distribute the few assets to his wife and elder brother, why do you want to give it to your elder brother? I definitely hope that he will do my share of filial piety for me. I have no chance. Then the divorce asked her to find a good-tempered husband. This is love! Rather than the kind of like that I wanted to selfishly own when I was young! Like is possessed! Love is dedication!
Is love a combination of like and appreciation?
Love is a combination of liking and appreciation. I agree with this point of view, and I think it is a more rational and perfect love. However, what I want to say is that I like the combination of liking and appreciation. Once loved, like is shallow, love is affectionate like. This sentence not only expresses the like and love, but also the difference between love and liking.
Appreciate, sometimes, or most of the time. It’s just an expression of love, not love. Believe, understand, and tolerate each other. Love is the mutual support of two people and the mutual respect and mutual respect.
What my understanding of love may be, but I only know that I can really be lucky enough to meet the person I love and love me, I will love it, care it, and cherish it! Having said so much, I believe you should understand the difference between like and love!
“The one who walks in the front, gentle and pleasant, is the son of my dad colleague named Mo Wen Yang. The one behind is the friend he brought with him, named Jiang Yan.” Wen Hao Xue gave a live commentary to the sisters.
Since Jiang Yan was more handsome than Mo Wen Yang, everyone rushed forward.
After an hour, all the people gnashed their teeth,muttered their mouths, and retreated with a gray head and a lost face.
“What is it? Isn’t it just a shabby guy!”
“This suit he came to us to wear today was lent to him by his friend.”
“There is no money, only handsome farts.”
“Don’t talk about the house and car, according to his unstable job and salary, he is not a civil servant, and it is difficult to support his family.”
Wen Man thought later that if Jiang Yan hadn’t settled down, she probably wouldn’t even look at him. The main reason is that he can make her a group of sisters and aunts get angry then its enough to make her look different.
Leaving the page in his hand, stretching her neck from the shadow, Wen Man carefully landed on the shabby prince with her eyes through the big glasses.
The height should be more than 1.8 meters, silver-striped shirt, blue and black trousers, polished leather shoes, and the top button of the shirt has been pulled out, revealing a small graceful collarbone.
The facial features are clear, the nose is sharp, the brows have a touch of arrogance, and the corners of the lips have a touch of coldness.
Accidentally, the two of them touched their eyes.
Wen Man’s head drooped immediately, her eyes facing the book spread out on her lap. As the noise in the living room became louder and louder, she moved the stool to the balcony to make it quiet.
Unexpectedly, the floor-to-ceiling window of the balcony suddenly pushed away,and a figure flashed next to her.
The small clusters of gentle and beautiful eyebrows, and the small raised corners of the eyes can see the shabby settler leaning on the balcony railing, sighing like a hair dryer:
“The scenery is beautiful, but the wind is a little bit strong and I feel hungry.”
The sound of grunt and hunger came from this charming and handsome man.
The shabby prince is really a dilapidated, and the Wen family said that it is useless only to be handsome.
The problem is that when Wen Man listened to this voice, she remembered that she couldn’t eat dinner because of her mother’s urgency, so she was hungry and couldn’t hold it anymore.
She looked carefully into the living room, everyone in Wen’s family was doing everything they could to get up to the marriage. At this time, if you shout hungry, you will not only be horrified, but you will also definitely be embarrassed by Xu Yu’e. Forget it. Wen Man placed the book lightly, stood up, and prepared to sneak out to find food for himself.
However, the shabby household turned his head and stared at her. A pair of mixed eyes of various colors made Wen Man’s spine look a little hairy. This person is obviously going hungry, and he seems to be a little bit resentful. It may be that when he was brought to Wen’s house, he thought he could be invited to eat a meal, but he didn’t expect to be hungry without the free meal.
“If you don’t mind eating instant noodles—” Wen Man opened his lips carefully, paying attention to the situation in the living room.
However, this shabby price is so arrogant, can he accept the suggestion of eating instant noodles?
The tall and tall figure flashed quickly, grabbed one of her hands, nodded like garlic, and said, “No problem, as long as it can fill the stomach, anything is fine.”
This poor man can’t even afford instant noodles.
Wen Man doesn’t know how to describe this momentary complex feeling in her heart: pity for the same illness?
All the people in the living room moved to the study room to watch Mo Wen Yang perform calligraphy. Wen Man walked to the door and opened the door, and the two of them slipped out smoothly.
Outside the house, as he said, the night scene was beautiful, and a round of moonlight shone on the road in the community, shining the shadows of the two. The wind is a little bit stronger, and the green plants in the community can be heard rustling, making it seem quiet.
When you reach the corner of the intersection, there is a small shop.
Wen Man touched the pockets of her jeans. She happened to have more than a dozen dollars for change after buying a paintbrush for Wen Yuan. She discussed with the owner of the commissary: “I want two bowls of Master Kong beef noodles. Can you flush us with hot water? We put the fabric ourselves. By the way, I also want a pack of mustard greens.”
After the commissary owner received the money, he followed her instructions and helped her get everything ready. So, Wen Man began to unpack the noodle bowls and put ingredients in the two-noodle bowls. In the eyes of others, her way of discharging is a bit strange, instead of putting all the ingredients in one piece according to the instructions and soaking in hot water. The commissary owner and Jiang Yan watched her keep busy with the two-noodle bowls with a pair of small hands. They were surprised and talking from the heart: Does it take so much trouble to eat instant noodles?
“Okay，meal is ready to serve.” After a few minutes, Wen Man smiled in satisfaction with a pair of crescent eyes.
When Jiang Yan took the noodle bowl she handed over, there was a pause in her smiling eyes that looked like crescent moons, and the handsome face seemed to flash with a daze.
“Let’s sit there for dinner, don’t hinder others from doing business.” Wen Man lowered his head, holding his noodle bowl and sat on the stone piers on both sides of the street.
Jiang Yan took two slender legs and sat beside her in a few steps, he follows her to lift the cover of the noodle bowl. The scent rushing on the face is like the taste of ordinary instant noodles, with a touch of more appetizing. Looking down the noodles and dried vegetables floating on the bowl seemed to be soaked just right, and there was no slick. Jiang Yan stirred the plastic fork in the noodles, picked it up and sucked it into his mouth. His eyes were stunned: delicious!
Instant noodles and dried vegetables that are just soaked in this way are not something ordinary people can make.
Wen Man ate slowly beside him, to the level of gentleness, without making the slightest sound of eating noodles.
Jiang Yan’s stomach was very hungry. The noodles were delicious. He raised the noodle bowl and grumbled and drank the soup in the noodle bowl to the bottom in one breath. After eating clean, he was also a little startled: he never knew instant noodles could be so delicious.
Wen Man only ate half a bowl, took out a package of tissues from her jacket bag, and gave him one.
Jiang Yan folded a stack of paper towels and took them to wipe the corners of his mouth slowly. After hesitating, he asked, “Do you often eat instant noodles? ”
Her skills in making instant noodles and eating instant noodles are superb and should be after a long time of practice. Ordinary people probably think so.
After Wen Man froze for a while, she smiled amusedly: “How is it possible?”
Jiang Yan saw her smile,and this time he was not startled. A complex calmness appeared in her eyes when he looked at her: “You–very good.”
Wen Man was even more stunned: “Hey?”
“Everyone in your family knows my situation, only you are willing to invite me to eat.” When Jiang Yan said this, there was nothing ashamed of his poverty on his handsome face.
Wen Man blinked his eyelashes slightly curled up: This shabby prince is really extraordinary arrogance.
Early in the morning, when Wen Man left the house, hers mother Xu Yu’e chased her to the door and said：
“Man Man, Yuan Yuan needs two brushes and a box of gouache paint. When you get off work, take a detour to the stationery store which is next door to the Academy of Fine Arts to buy it back.”
After saying this, Xu Yu’e didn’t wait for her eldest daughter to agree, and she turned it back into the house without giving her eldest daughter money.
This is mostly the case since childhood. Wen Man is the boss of the family, and she gives her sister Wen Yuan everything. This law seems to be taken for granted by her parents and her sister.
Wen Man opened hers wallet and looked inside, less than a hundred dollars. Think of the stationery store next door to the Academy of Fine Arts, which is the most expensive art supplies stationery store in the city. She folded back into her room, took out the salary seal she had just got the day before yesterday, and pulled out another two hundred dollars from it. In this way, she has no pocket money this month except for the maintenance fees paid to her parents.
When I arrived at the company, the early summer of my college classmate and best friend took Wen Man’s shoulder: “My husband is not at home tonight, I don’t want to cook, how about going to eat Japanese sushi together?”
“No money.” Wen Man speaking honest.
“You only got your salary the day before yesterday.” Chu Xia was a little surprised, and immediately understood, sighed, “Man Man, uncle and auntie are really partial. Don’t you resist?”
The corners of Wen Man’s lips were slightly pressed, and her smile was like a lady in a TV series.
Chu Xia knew that this best friend was not outstanding. Only when she was smiling, hers two black eyes were like crescent moons, and she could kill men, women, and children. It’s just that Wen Man’s smile can only be spread to people who she trusts. The average person sees Wen Man, with a thin face, big black glasses covering most of his face, and she likes to hide in the corner, like an invisible person.
I remember that there was a reunion, and she and Wen Man were present. As a result, when it was about to end, the host counted the people present and handed out gifts, shouting: “Hey, didn’t Wen Man come tonight?”
Wen Man raised hers hand silently in the corner: “Yes.”
The host was so ashamed that he almost dug a hole in the ground.
“Chu Xia.I heard that you are going to Bei Huo with your husband.” Wen Man interrupted her best friend’s wandering in a word.
Wen Man’s voice is born, like a little sheep, soft and fluffy. Her voice, some people hate, some people like. Chu Xia likes it, but Wen Man’s family, especially Wen Man’s younger sister, hates her sister’s voice.
Chu Xia is often surprised after listening to the voice of a good friend, before saying：“ What’s wrong? Have you figured it out? Finally thought of leaving that home?”
Wen Man sipped her lips and did not answer.
Chu Xia hugged her shoulder: “If you want, come with us, and three of us will take care of each other.”
In the evening, punch in at the company on time to get off work. Chu Xia accompanied Wen Man and took a detour to the most expensive stationery store in the city. He bought Wen Yuan two brushes and a box of pigments, both good brands, and removed more than 230 dollars at the checkout. Wen Man thought: Fortunately, I brought an extra two hundred dollars.
Chu Xia complained about her again: “All the money you make is invested in your sister. When she is famous, will she repay you?”
“Our whole family has invested in her alone, not just me.” Wen Man used this to prevaricate her best friend’s concern.
“Cheh! With her ability, I don’t believe she can be admitted to the Central Academy of Fine Arts.” Chu Xia raised the bar; I really can’t see it.
“Better than me. I’m just a second grade of universities. She is a key high school, and she should have been able to go to first grade of universities.” Wen Man said sternly.
“I really want to curse her that she can’t get in to the first grade of universities.” Chu Xia vowed to die.
Wen Man pursed her lips: “Immoral.”
Wen Man often made a witty remark in silence.
Chu Xia felt that after so many years of dating, she still couldn’t see what kind of person Wen Man was.
When the two wanted to get on the bus and go to a Japanese sushi restaurant in the city center, Wen Man’s cell phone rang suddenly.
“Mom, what can I do for you? I am tonight——–”
“You hurry to your second uncle‘s house now, all the girls must attend the family gathering tonight.” Xu Yu’e finished speaking, and without her daughter’s reply, she “snapped” and hung up the phone.
“What’s wrong?” Chu Xia asked.
“My mother asked me to go to my second uncle’s house. We have a big family gathering tonight.” Wen Manmade a bitter face, “I’m sorry, Chu Xia.”
“Haha! It’s okay, I’m used to being put on the plane by you, at most the next meal on you, I still earn.”Chu Xia grinned generously, and then looked at Wen Man’s clothes,“If you have a big family gathering, are you sure you going to wear it like this?”
Wen Man works in the mounting room, often stained with some paint or something on his clothes, so he works in the most ordinary clothes. Like today, a polka-dot shirt has been stained with some colored paste on the pendulum, which cannot be washed off, and the jeans below have been smeared with two ink spots.
“It doesn’t matter, it’s just a family gathering.”Wen Man glanced at himself and shook his head,“If I go back for a change, I will be scolded by my family for being late.”
Therefore, Wen Man took another bus after breaking up with Chu Xia at the bus station.
Wen Man’s second uncle, named Wen Shirong, holds a clerical position in the city hall, and is one of the richest in the Wen family. Wen Shirong’s house is in Shengtang Garden. The market price is 10,000 dollars per square meter. It is located on the first floor of the community, with five bedrooms and three living rooms, and a small garden.
But if possible, Wen Man never wanted to step into the door of his second uncle’s house.
This is to say that Wen Man’s grandfather died early, and there was only one grandma living in the old house. Wen Man’s father, Wen Shixuan, was the eldest son of the Wen family. He was supposed to become the eldest of the Wen family after the death of his parents, taking charge of the whole family’s affairs. However, Wen Shixuan lived very poorly, and he and his wife opened a grocery store, barely making ends meet. Therefore, the boss of a family who is now in charge has become the second brother Wen Shirong.
Wen Shixuan couldn’t hold his head up in the family, and Xu Yu’e was also humiliated even though she was called the sister-in-law. The two failed to give birth to a son to inherit the incense, so all hopes were placed on the two daughters. Although, Wen Man is the oldest of the seven girls of the Wen family’s generation but is the least promising one. Wen Man couldn’t even go to a key high school. She only took a second-grade universities, and the company she came out to work for was mediocre. She is twenty-nine years old today, and she couldn’t even talk about a partner.
Xu Yu’e felt that her eldest daughter was humiliated, and she poured all her thoughts into her second daughter Wen Yuan. At least Wen Yuan went to a key high school, and the target was a key university in Beijing.
Wen Man rang the doorbell of the second uncle’s house.
With a tick, it was Wen Haoxue, the daughter of second uncle, who opened the door for her.
Wen Haoxue is twenty-two this year and is studying at a media university in the city. Her appearance is biased towards her mother Zhang Qiuyan, with a round face, long wavy hair, and a pair of beautiful eyes slightly like red phoenix eyes.
Wen Man was slightly surprised: Wen Haoxue was at home tonight? Why did Wen Haoxue wear high heels on her feet and red makeup on her face, as if she was going out to a banquet?
“Sister Man Man, didn’t your mother tell you anything?” It seemed that it was Wen Haoxue who should express amazement when she looked at the clothes and pants that Wen Man had contaminated.
“What’s wrong, today is not just an ordinary family gathering?”Wen Man asked, and the pen and paint she bought for Wen Yuan were still in the plastic bag she was carrying.
As soon as Wen Haoxue looked at her expression, she guessed that she didn’t know anything. She first pulled her into the door, and then said in detail: “My dad, brought the sons of two colleagues over.”
“Hey?” Wen Man was pulled straight by her and walked all the way to the living room.
Inside, there are three generation of Wen family men and women inside and outside, men in uniform formal suits and ties, and women are all dressed to the nines. Such a large line-up scared Wen Man very much.
“Man Man, why are you dressed like this?” Xu Yu’e saw her daughter for the first time and jumped up and pointed. At this call, everyone heard the voice and focused their eyes on Wen Man. Xu Yu’e regretted it, lost his face, and suddenly sat back in his seat.
Wen Haoxue’s mother, Zhang Qiuyan, came over and seemed to ask with concern: “What’s going on, Haoxue?”
Wen Haoxue said in front of everyone in the living room: “Sister Man Man doesn’t know what the party tonight is for. The elder aunt didn’t seem to tell her.”
Wen Man frowned and wanted to open his mouth.
Xu Yu’e has rushed to say: “I have ordered Yuanyuan to let her call and tell her sister, be sure to remember to go home and change clothes.”
Wen Yuan saw her mother kick the ball on her head, and her face didn’t change: “I called my sister, but my sister didn’t listen. If you don’t believe me, you can ask Shu Ya. I also asked Shu Ya to call Wen Man once.”
After receiving Wen Yuan’s wink, Liao Shu Ya, who was reading a magazine with Wang Yun Yun, heard this, and her face did not change color: “I called Sister Man Man, sister Man Man must be in the car, and didn’t hear it.”
Several people rolled the responsibilities and returned to Wen Man herself. Wen Man smiled slightly without showing her teeth.
Seeing that the elder daughter didn’t care at all, Xu Yu’e heart telling herself that Wen Man is still far from their expectations.
“Since this is the case, Sister-in-law, let Hao Xue borrow a set of clothes for Man Man to wear.” Zhang Qiu Yan said openly and showed the demeanour of the mother of the family in a cordial manner.
Xu Yu’e frowned, thinking: If she accepts it, she can’t swallow this breath in her heart. If she doesn’t accept it, others will say that she only cares about her own face and ignores her daughter. What to say, this wronged one has to swallow it.
Wen Hao Xue received her mother’s eyes, and smiled unsmilingly to pull Wen Man into her room.
However, Wen Man took off her hands and said to everyone, “Thank you for your kindness. But Hao Xue’s clothes are a bit too big for me, I don’t think able to fit me.”
The first person to laugh out is the youngest and only boy in the Wen family. Unfortunately, it is a grand-children named Wang Shao Han. Thirteen years old this year, studying in the standard five. On weekdays, he is held in the palm of his parents like a little emperor. He has always been heartless. If you want to laugh, you can laugh, and if you want to cry, you say he doesn’t understand his mind, but he is very clever.
When everyone saw it, they also knew what Wang Shao Han was laughing at. Among the few girls, Wen Hao Xue is the plumpest and Wen Man is the slimmest. If it hadn’t been for Zhang Qiu Yan spending a lot of money to buy Wen Hao Xue brand-name shirts, with Wen Hao Xue’s figure, wearing Wen Man’s unbranded uniform clothes would have been even uglier than pigs.
The expressions of Wen Hao Xue and her daughter fell at the same time.
Wen Man didn’t think at all that they could be kind enough to borrow her clothes. In some ways, her parents are just foolhardy, and her second uncle’s family is cunning like a fox. Wen Man, who had already seen through this, walked from her various eyes to a stool near the balcony, habitually hiding herself in the shadow.
This blind date feast, to put it bluntly, Uncle Wen is looking for so many girls, but to set off his daughter Wen Hao Xue. Other girls, it’s not that they don’t know the thoughts of the second uncle family, but they don’t want to lose the opportunity to fly on the branches and become phoenix. But she Wen Man has self-knowledge. If there were Cinderella and Prince Charming everywhere in this world, it wouldn’t be called Cinderella Fairy tale.
Click — the door opened, Wen Shi Rong was in front, and the two handsome and upright figures behind him firmly attracted the girls’ eyes.
When I first arrived in the United States, I was a guest at a classmate’s house. He is a handsome and talented man, but he married a woman whose talent and appearance are far from matching. What is especially puzzling is that he abandoned his girlfriend who has been dating in China for many years and has long talked about marriage.
“My parents and brothers don’t forgive me!” He pointed around, “But look, I have a house, furniture, deposits, and a green card. Who gave it?” He sighed, “People After 35 years of age, many things are clear. I have worked hard all my life and hope to have a good life for a few days.”
It’s just that I think, who does he really love in his heart?
After reading “The Biography of Zhang Daqian” written by Mr. Xie Jiaxiao, after reading more than 500 pages, when I came to the “postscript”, I found an important passage, to the effect that Zhang Daqian’s wife Xu Wenbo was by his side in the second half of his life. But in the prime of life, Yang Wanjun is the one who accompanies him to share the joys and sorrows, and love and know each other the most. It was Yang Wanjun who helped Zhang Daqian escape the clutches of the Japanese, and it was also Yang Wanjun who accompany him to face the walls of Dunhuang and suffered from the wind and frost. But when Mr. Daqian was interviewed by Xie Jiaxiao, he rarely mentioned the most important woman in his life.
Mr. Xie Jiaxiao said: “Is he taking care of Xu Wenbo who is by his side, and avoiding praise Yang Wanjun?”
“He (Zhang Daqian) set aside his will at the age of 80, especially in the bequest part, stating that he wanted to give it to his lover Yang Wanjun. It shows that in Mr. Daqian’s heart, he never forgot a period of affectionate years with Yang Wanjun.”
Closing the book, I must admire Mr. Xie Jiaxiao’s attitude as a journalist, seeking truth from facts.13 years after the completion of “The Biography of Zhang Daqian”, and 10 years after the death of the old man, he finally said what he didn’t say.
Isn’t it something that Mr. Daqian didn’t say anything, but buried his heart for more than 30 years?
Lin Huiyin (Chinese: 林徽因, born 林徽音; pinyin: Lín Huīyīn; known as Phyllis Lin or Lin Whei-yin when in the United States; 10 June 1904 – 1 April 1955) was a Chinese architect and writer. She is known to be the first female architect in modern China and her husband the famed “Father of Modern Chinese Architecture” Liang Sicheng, both of whom worked as founders and faculty in the newly formed Architecture Department of Northeastern University in 1928 and, after 1949, as professors in Tsinghua University in Beijing. Liang and Lin began restoration work on cultural heritage sites of China in the post-imperial Republican Era of China; a passion which she would pursue to the end of her life. The American artist Maya Lin is her niece.
Xu Zhimo (徐志摩, Wu Chinese: [ʑi tsɿ mu], Mandarin: [ɕǔ ʈʂî mwǒ], January 15, 1897 – November 19, 1931), was an early 20th-century romantic Chinese poet who strove to loosen Chinese poetry from its traditional forms and to reshape it under the influences of Western poetry and the vernacular Chinese language. He is considered one of the most important figures of modern Chinese poetry.
I still remember that Lin Huiyin, known as the “First generation talented woman“ in china, fell in love with Xu Zhimo at first sight. Due to the pressure of the secular and family, the two were eventually separated, and finally married Liang Qichao’s son Liang Sicheng.
Liang Sicheng’s talent is not under Xu Zhimo. He is a pioneer in the study of ancient Chinese architecture. To this day, his works 40 years ago are still considered classics by the world architecture community.
Liang Sicheng, who has travelled all over China and studied in the West, has a different mindset after all. After Xu Zhimo’s plane crashed, Liang Sicheng rushed to the scene specially, picked up a fragment of the plane and gave it to his wife. It is said that Lin Huiyin hung it on the wall of the bedroom for the rest of his life.
Everyone has his own spiritual world, and in the depths of that soul, he may not necessarily be the other half of the marriage.
A friend who success in career said to me: “I do things all my life and I don’t owe anyone. To my parents, I am filial; to my friends, I am righteous; to my wife, I enjoy it. If there is any debt, I only owe one person-my girlfriend in high school. She was pregnant with my child, and I asked her to have an abortion, and she had to pay for it herself. I was so poor at that time that I couldn’t pay. The problem is that I am not only poor, but also seedless, and I dare not accompany her to the hospital.”
He sighed for a long time: “To this day, I remember her pale face after the abortion, she never complained about me, but I complained about myself as I got older…”
He looked for her for many years, used many contacts, methods, and even borrowed the name of a friend to post in the newspaper many times to find someone, but still no good news.
No wonder there is an emerging industry in Japan, looking for a first love lover for customers. It is said that many lovers, after 60 or 70 years, hugged and wept when they met, and found that the other party was still their favourite.
One day, he received a phone call from an elder, whose voice was distant and fragile, and it was an old friend whose mother had not seen her for more than ten years.
The mother was startled, got up from the bed in a hurry, and forgot to wear a hearing aid, babbling sentence by sentence.
He grabbed the phone and said: “Tell me something, and I will convey it again.“
The old man on the other end of the phone had a very calm tone: “Just tell her, I miss her very much!”
After a while, he received a letter from South America. The old man’s child said that his mother died soon after putting down the phone———–brain cancer!
He trembled to tell the old mother the news. The old mother, who was in her 80s, was not immediately moved, just sighed and said: “She hasn’t called for so many years, and when she received it, she knew something no good. She is really an old sister. We know each other since she was a child. She has not seen her for decades. She still misses me before she dies. It’s just that old friends are gone, and when I leave, who am I thinking about?”
The mother turned around, sat in the corner of the bed, and wept.
Are there some characters hidden in the depths of everyone’s heart, accompanied by joy and sadness, usually lock it up? I dare not touch it, let alone know it to outsiders, until some days when my heart is clear, or when I return to the light, my heart is weak, and I can’t lock it anymore. Finally, the character emerges.
Will one day, when we are near, suddenly find out that the person we love most in our lives is the one who has been forgotten for many years……
When I was a little girl, I knew that one day my wishful prince would come unexpectedly. I often imagine him riding a snow-white horse, he will invite me to seat at horseback and then ride me to his city. I believe that somewhere in this world there is a special person looking for me, just as I am looking for him. If it is destined, this kind of thing will happen.
I was 17 years old that year and he finally showed up. The young man’s name was Ted Bennington, and he was a new neighbor. My mother gave me a small gold box hung on a necklace on my birthday. The golden box is not new, but it is her collection for many years, and my mother always keeps this small box together with a few souvenirs that father gave her mother.
I said: “Mom, do you really want to give me the box? This belongs to you!”
Mom said: “Really! It really means a lot to me, but as I promise to myself that I will handover this box to you when you are 17 years old, and it’s belonged to you now my girl.”
There was an elusive look in my mother’s eyes. I glanced at her puzzled. In fact, the marriage between father and mother can be described as happily ever after. My father was warm and considerate, mum and dad always seemed to have unlimited happiness when they were together until my father died two years ago. I am secretly funny; I really don’t know what sad things will happen to my mother. But I do like this box, it is small and exquisite, shaped like a chicken heart, tied with a small gold chain, which makes people love it. But what makes my heart beat the most is that Ted Bennington gave me a simple blue headscarf with gold trim on it, which is really beautiful. I love the gifts Ted gave me, but I love him more. I like his pale-yellow curly hair hanging down on the front collar, bright and honest blue eyes also nice square jaw, it looks cute. He looks shy, likable, and serious, he looks so outstanding when compared with the glib tongue, self-righteous guys in our upper grades.
About two months ago, I started to pay attention to Ted, when he came to our class for only a month. He is a quiet boy and never participates in any team in the school. After class or on weekends, while other classmates were hanging out and having fun, he had to go to a grocery store to work. At that time, it was an alumni dance party. As a senior high school girl, you can’t have too many choices, because most boys in this grade give their hearts to the first and second high school girls. I had to make a list of the remaining boys and crossed out the ones that were too short, now only 4 people remained in my list. But three of them were either too fat or unable to get along with me or spitting when talking, Ted became the only candidate in the end. When he walked out of the classroom after class, I was waiting there, pretending to bump into a piece by accident.
I accosted and said: “Nancy is hosting a family dance this weekend, Ted, this is an event for women to invite men. Do you want to go?”
“Go? You mean to go with you?” he asked.
“Yes!” I said.
This, this, I must go, thank you! I’m happy to go.” He said.
He was a little flattered, really wondering if he had ever taken a girl to any place when he grew up. I can’t help thinking, maybe it was a mistake to invite him. Will everyone like him? The people who attended the prom were all mainstream figures in the school. Is Ted a group? However, everything at the party was pleasant. Ted tried his best to adapt to it, dancing, participating in games, and talking with people, it really seemed like a proficient socialist.
After the party he sent me home on the way, we talked about each other’s plans after graduation, I said that I will study secretarial major. He told me that he was working hard to get a scholarship from Durrain College and was going to study medical science there. The moonlight is dim and graceful, which makes people have an inexplicable impulse. Suddenly it became clear to me that my little empty hand was shaking on one side of my body, and I believed his hand was the same. I really don’t know how many times our little hands touched each other and how many times we were electrocuted? On this road, we two stopped talking, and instantly felt that there was only us left in the whole world, and suddenly felt that each other could hear each other’s nervous and excited heartbeats. Now we are enjoying walking silently in the moonlight. What’s even more inexplicable is that our hands slowly got together at each other without knowing when they started.
Ted took me to the alumni dance party, which seemed so natural. A feeling of heart trembling made me suddenly realize that Ted is the special person I have been expecting since I was young! Our feelings became more and more deep as time went by. We took a walk together, went hiking, and participated in a picnic party under the blue sky. Ted played a melodious guitar during the picnic, and we sang aloud together. These are days of infinite poetry and happiness. Then one day, Ted brought good news. He had won a scholarship from Durrain College.
Ted asked: “People would call me Doctor Bennington, how do you feel?”
I said: “It’s wonderful! But I will miss you.”
He said: “Me too, I wish you could go with me.”
I comforted him and said: “Don’t worry! I’ll be waiting for you here. Maybe I can find a job in that college before you graduate.”
Ted said: “That’s great, but I’m afraid.”
“What are you afraid of?” I asked.
Ted said: “Oh, everything is so perfect, I’m so afraid of losing you.”
“Blindly worry!” I said to him, “you won’t lose this destined love!” but I was wrong. In the first few months when Ted left me to go to college, we wrote letters to each other more diligently. But gradually, our letters became lesser and lesser, probably this is the beginning of the ending. He couldn’t go home together celebrate Thanksgiving, and when he came back at Christmas, I was getting measles. Finally, Ted has a new girlfriend. She is a classmate of their school. Ted wrote to say that he was sorry about it and said that he knew I would understand.
It was raining the day the letter was received. I lay on the bed listening to the patter of rain. I don’t hate Ted; I don’t even hate that girl. It’s just that I can’t believe what happened. At this moment, my mother walked in. I know what she is going to say.
Mum said: “There are other lads, you may not believe it now, but there will always be.”
I said: “Maybe, but Ted is my only beloved, I will never love again!”
Mom was silent for a while, and then said: ” Is the little gold box I gave you hanging on the necklace still there??
I said: “Little gold box? Oh, of course. It’s in the top drawer of the dressing table.”
Mom took out the little gold box and asked me to put it on. “Look,” she said, “this is the special lover who gave it to me when I was 17 years old.” I cherished the little gold box and thought of my dead father. What a happy life he once had with my mother!
“He is kind, likable, and different. I was convinced that he was the man I was destined for,” my mother said slowly, lost in thought, “but within a few days of our engagement, he died in A train accident.”
“What did you say?” I exclaimed, “I thought… You mean you had loved someone before Dad? The other person you thought was the most special?”
Mum said: “Yes, that’s the way it is, I think if I marry him, I am sure I will be very happy. But the result was that I married your father three years later. We also love each other, and I am also very happy with him.”
“I don’t understand.” I said.
Mum Looked at me quietly and said: “Baby, what I want to tell you is that there is not only one special person in this world who will make us happy, but there are many such good people, Ted is just one of them. It’s just that he came too early.” . I almost cried because I felt that my childhood dream was being crushed.
Mum said softly: “One day, a good manwill come at theright time, and he will be the one you are destined for.”
She leaving me alone, walked out and closed the door gently. I’m listening to the sound of rain, I looked at the door my mother closed when she went out, but I thought of another door which was the other door of hope she opened for me just now.
