Happy Reading!!!

When Jiǎn Míng Xià was in high school, the school assigned a computer teacher who had just graduated.

This teacher had been very trendy. He taught everyone to use chat software and swipe forums. You knew, computers were still forbidden on campus in those days. When they were caught in Internet Cafes, they would be punished by writing a self-criticism letter for parents.

But this teacher did not go by this trend.n He had used his own way, broke the magic of the Internet.

After that, he also held an animation training class. Jiǎn Míng Xià had been one of the students.

At that time, Jiǎn Míng Xià had not known what 2D and 3D were. She was naive and believed that as long as she studied hard, she could learn something well.

Jiǎn Míng Xià every day before going to bed would visualize her own future to make a touching romantic animation. That she became too excited to sleep.

But until the teacher left after the internship, everyone only had learned the sphere deformation movement.

It was too naive at that time.

Jiǎn Míng Xià did not even remember whether she had unintentionally revealed any bold, visionary words. Now it was safe to say that, only embarrassment could be sensed.

But Jiǎn Míng Xià did not think the person that Xuē Lì Yán meant would turn to be herself. When she had been in high school, Xuē Lì Yán was still in primary school! Narcissism also got a limit!

Which girl did not dream.

It must have been just a coincidence.

However regarding heroes usually agreed[3] person, Jiǎn Míng Xià was still a little curious, so she inquired, “Now, have you made her novels into anime?”

[3] meaning is great minds think alike.

Damned with Mr. Right, it was God’s work.

This sentence appeared in Jiǎn Míng Xià’s head.

Xuē Lì Yán only looked at her wordlessly. His pupils were pure black, when he was staring at others, it gave a very distinctive  feeling, not very aggressive, but also made  people unable to ignore. After a while, he said in a slightly lighter voice, “She probably has forgotten.”

As a result, things just turned like it died peacefully.

Jiǎn Míng Xià did not ask again, stabbing a person scar was a disgrace.

But suddenly an idea came to her mind, which made her have the impulse to write it down. Jiǎn Míng Xià hoped that the story would have a beautiful ending.

The atmosphere of the dinner was much more relaxed than that of the last meal. Although there was no conversation, there was no sense of rivalry.

At least that was how Jiǎn Míng Xià thought.

She was a visual animal, judging people by their appearance. People were often judged by the first impressions, and it was hard to change one’s outlook afterwards.

Jiǎn Míng Xià wished to see people or more accurate, and of course she had never experienced face slaps.

Before that, Xuē Lì Yán’s temper was prickly. In addition she also got the feeling that he had not passed the rebellious period yet, so that she ignored other details.

In fact, he had a very good character. When traveling with women, he understood to bring snacks for the other party, and he also took the initiative to help people carry their luggages. Unlike the boys who ordered one action at a time.

Even if he had seemed unhappy at lunch, he was not wrong. He distained the living habits of Jiǎn Míng Xià. This was a normal thing. Jiǎn Míng Xià also had a habit of looking down on others’s habits.

And this time, Xuē Lì Yán appeared to take off the only thorn on his body. Then more details were shown in front of Jiǎn Míng Xià. He provided her with indoor women’s slippers. The water poured was half warm. Even the dishes for dinner had also been made to accomodate Jiǎn Míng Xià’s taboo.

Jiǎn Míng Xià did not eat onion, garlic and pepper, it meant by not putting these things into the mouth, if only seasoning, still could be tolerated. Also, some dishes needed onion, garlic and pepper seasoning. It was OK at home, and her family indulged at her bad habits unconditionally, but outside, no matter how good a friend was, she would not be able to stand her indecent act of picking on the dishes.

Therefore, after so many years of going out, Jiǎn Míng Xià experienced the most comfortable place to eat was at Xuē Lì Yán’s place.

There was no shadow of those side dishes in the dish, but smelled, looked and tasted great. It should be squeezed into juice and added to it.

Jiǎn Míng Xià just realized that there was still such a method. But if it had been up to herself, she would be too lazy to be that attentive. She was picky, but even if she ate noodles three times a day, she could still bear it.

But Jiǎn Míng Xià appetite was still a lot better, unconsciously she ate more.

After the meal, Jiǎn Míng Xià and Xuē Lì Yán said goodbye.

Xuē Lì Yán said, “I’ll send you.”

Jiǎn Míng Xià smiled: “You forget, I live in the building opposite yours. No need to send me home.”

Xuē Lì Yán changed his outdoor shoes and sent her downstairs.

Bidding their goodbye downstairs, Jiǎn Míng Xià thought, how stupid a woman could be to give up such a man.

For Jiǎn Míng Xià, Xuē Lì Yán was still the younger brother of a friend from long ago.

They had more than five years apart. Naturally, there was no friendship at all. They could not play together. Jiǎn Míng Xià only used to calling him when she was having fun, lest he always kept to himself and being excluded.

On the contrary, after Jiǎn Míng Xià and Xuē Lì Héng had a fallen out with each other, Xuē Lì Yán often came to see her. At first, he tried to persuade them to make up, and then he came to simply play with her.

Children in their early teens took her as their best friend. Jiǎn Míng Xià sometimes felt annoyed with him, but every time he looked for her to play, he always brought her snacks, like chocolate. Jiǎn Míng Xià beared it. Sometimes when Jiǎn Míng Xià had went to play with her classmates , she would leave him at home and let him watch TV alone.

He had never been noisy. That person could watch TV in Jiǎn Míng Xià’s home for a whole afternoon. Later, he played on a computer.

Jiǎn Míng Xià went to high school for three years. And Xuē Lì Yán spent those three years playing the computer in her home on weekends, winter and summer vacation.

At that time, Xuē Lì Yán did not mention anything about playing with Jiǎn Míng Xià anymore. Half grown boys always began to understand the differences between men and women.

Jiǎn Míng Xià thought that he was about to find her to play as an excuse, the purpose was actually to play the computer. After all, even if one were to watch him growing up as the nextdoor elder, she was still unable to really discipline him.

After Jiǎn Míng Xià went to university, Xuē Lì Yán also stopped coming to Jiǎn’s home any more. He would occasionally text her to ask about her situation in a foreign land.

Jiǎn Míng Xià had left home for the first time. She must have a lot of feelings and complaints in her heart. She did not dare to let her parents know so that they would not worry. Therefore, she basically looked for Xuē Lì Yán to have bitter digestive fluids rising to the mouth[3].

[5] meaning is to complain bitterly.

In Jiǎn Míng Xià memory, uncle and Aunt Xuē had always been busy and spent little time at home. The brothers of the Xuē family basically followed their grandparents. Such children were always very sensitive. In addition, he had been used to being rejected by his brother and his friends when he was a child. Therefore, most of the time, Xuē Lì Yán was very patient and matured beyond his age.

From time to time, Jiǎn Míng Xià also had a good chat with him. He would always follow her and be a quiet listener.

At that time, Jiǎn Míng Xià felt that Xuē Lì Yán was a younger brother than her own, and sometimes cried in front of him when she lost her temper.

Xuē Lì Yán had been Jiǎn Míng Xià’s real first male friend. Although he was so much younger than her, Jiǎn Míng Xià thought that he was far better than her peers in many aspects.

Then, in the second year of Jiǎn Míng Xià’s work, he said he had come to see her, but suddenly he stopped contacting her.

Jian Ming Xia was not the type of, you give me cold ass, I give you a hot face.

So, in the end, they broke off all contact.

Of course, people were not plants, and Jiǎn Míng Xià would occasionally miss this Little Tail.

But Little Tail would inevitably grow up, so he would then find her bored.

When Jiǎn Míng Xià arrived at home, she did not turn on the light right away. Instead she lied there on her sofa.

She did want to see him again, that was all. She did not wish to be too close.

Jiǎn Míng Xià was a person who was too clingy for the past.

But the friends around her always stayed away from her one by one. It was unknown  whether she was a bad person or just like this in life.

Some people said that losing was a cycle. The more you had , the more you would likely lose.

To some extent, Jiǎn Míng Xià was a sentimental pessimist.

Occasionally, she would let herself be immersed in pessimism. It was not exile, but every emotion of human beings  was precious.

Jiǎn Míng Xià believed that people should accept themselves, no matter how good or bad their way of thinking was.

Jiǎn Míng Xià never had any regret in the past. She thought about everything in the past and shaped her present self.

When the mobile phone text message sounded, Jiǎn Míng Xià had broken free from the world of thinking. She turned on the light in the room, squeezed a glass of juice for herself, and then went to read the message.

Lì Yán: Why not turn on the light?

Jiǎn Míng Xià: I will never disappear in my own corridor, right? Little Tail, you are so unreasonable.

Xuē Lì Yán did not send another message.

Jiǎn Míng Xià then washed first before going to sleep.

Before going to bed, she changed Xuē Lì Yán’s contact name to Little Tail.
