Happy Reading!!!

Neither of them had a good night’s sleep.

Jiǎn Míng Xià laid down and tried to asleep. She did not dare to move. It was not that it hurt, but that she could sense the bubbles on her feet, which was particularly uncomfortable.

She was also anxious how it would become after tonight, so Jiǎn Míng Xià felt a little sad.

If you had something in mind, naturally you would have a hard time falling asleep.

Xuē Lì Yán in the living room also experiencing some insomnia. The reason could be summed up in one sentence, which was: heart like a frisky monkey, mind like a cantering horse[1]).

[1] meaning is to feel capricious.

If you had an ape in your heart and a horse in your mind, naturally sleep would not come easily.

When Jiǎn Míng Xià got up at 7 o’clock, Xuē Lì Yán had already left. The sofa was neatly cleaned.

After a night of recovery, Jiǎn Míng Xià’s blisters hardened a lot, and she only felt a faint tingling sensation if she walked slowly. It did not hinder her activities much. It did not not reach the level of being unable to walk.

Jiǎn Míng Xià breathed a sigh of relief. So as long as she could walk, it did not matter.

The fish which she had brought back yesterday was taken out from the refrigerator. Jiǎn Míng Xià shaved off the scales and made a pot of fish congee. Then she texted Xuē Lì Yán while drinking the congee: Thank you for buying me medicine yesterday.

Little Tail: No need, are you feeling better?

He replied very quickly, Jiǎn Míng Xià had not yet exited the short message interface and already received his reply.

Jiǎn Míng Xià: Much better. It doesn’t affect my walking. Anyway, I’m having breakfast now.

Little Tail: En, take a good rest.

Jiǎn Míng Xià did not send any more messages, but opened her microblog and updated new status with tears and blood.

Will it Snow in Summer (Xiàtiān Huì Xiàxuě Ma): I haven’t climbed the mountain for many years, there are 13 blisters on my feet. Is there anything worse than this?

The Kite Who Wants to Break the Line (Xiǎng Duànxiàn De Fēngzhēng) commented: lack of exercise, you are such an embarrassment! Serve you right! 

Will it Snow in Summer (Xiàtiān Huì Xiàxuě Ma): Don’t do this, people are already miserable, and they walk cautious and solemn.

The Kite Who Wants to Break the Line (Xiǎng Duànxiàn De Fēngzhēng) replied: Hēng, Serve you right! (you deserve it). Older sister had already come downstairs, waiting, and opened the door for me in half an hour.

Will it Snow in Summer (Xiàtiān Huì Xiàxuě Ma): Consort, quickly coming!

Jiǎn Míng Xià was still a little happy. She had her best friend to rely on at the time of need ah! The Kite Who Wants to Break the Line (Xiǎng Duànxiàn De Fēngzhēng), whose real name was Fēng Zhēng, was Jiǎn Míng Xià’s friend from junior high school until now. She was also the one who had shared the lease with her after graduating from university.

However, because Jiǎn Míng Xià decided to move away, the relationship between the two turned colder. In the past few years, they had not had much contact. Although they were in the same city, they only met each other on their birthdays and only on important holidays.

But the contradiction was contradictory. As soon as the other heard that Jiǎn Míng Xià had suffered some grievances, she immediately came to the rescue. Jiǎn Míng Xià became very happy.

There was a saying that was suitable. Microblogging was not about what you wanted to say, but what you wanted people to see.

Especially for someone like Jiǎn Míng Xià, whose work contact tool and personal contact tool were completely separated. She simply wanted  to find someone to talk to when she posts private news.

But she had very few friends, and most of the time she only posted things she had read time and again.

Fēng Zhēng was quick to respond. Jiǎn Míng Xià had finished two bowls of porridge. She came over as soon as Jiǎn Míng Xià finished washing the dishes.

Compared with Jiǎn Míng Xià, Fēng Zhēng was a woman who can dress up better. Her face would always have exquisite makeup and she wore the most fashionable clothes of the season.

At the same time, she was also a woman who did not know the hardships of the world. When she was in college, she often cried that she had overspent her credit card this month. The sisters gave her money to deal with the emergency, but in a blink of an eye she bought a new mobile phone, or a laptop and a bag. In short, it would not be used for meals.

On her microblog, she often saw two messages with a short interval of time back to back. The first one was of crying poor, and the following one was showing off some newly bought mobile phone.

Sometimes Jiǎn Míng Xià did not know what to say about her. Thus she could only be classified as three dimensional.

Today’s Fēng Zhēng seemed a little different from usual. She was dressed in unfashionable clothes, and even her face was bare of makeup. She rarely showed her bare face because it had turned pale due to daily use of makeupThere was also a faint  bruise on her left face.

Jiǎn Míng Xià frowned and asked: “What’s wrong with your face? Jiǎng Jié?”

“Nevermind this, show me your feet.” Fēng Zhēng carelessly covered her face with her hair.

Jiǎn Míng Xià saw that she did not wish to talk about it, so she showed her her feet instead. Fēng Zhēng looked at it and said, “It’s okay, the skin inside has grown well, just wait for the dead skin outside to fall off.”

“You seem to have a lot of experience ah?”

“Those who wear high-heeled shoes haven’t blistered, but you only wear less. I’m hungry. Do you have anything to eat?”

Jiǎn Míng Xià served her congee, and the two sat on the sofa chatting.

Jiǎn Míng Xià then remembered the matter of going home before and said to Fēng Zhēng: “Lǐ Lì Xiāng is getting married, have you heard?”

Fēng Zhēng shook her head: “She didn’t tell me. You know, I haven’t been in touch with her for many years.”

In fact, Lǐ Lì Xiāng and Fēng Zhēng had had the best relationship at the beginning. Jiǎn Míng Xià had a better relationship with the other person. Later, after graduating from high school, that person went away to make money and support her family. Then her  relationship with Fēng Zhēng became much closer, and somehow, the relationship between Fēng Zhēng and Lǐ Lì Xiāng faded.

Girls were like this. When they were on good terms, they were like lacquer and glue. When they were on bad terms, they could make a red face by simply saying a word.

Jiǎn Míng Xià had no idea how they had fallen apart. These years, she served as a bridge. Three people had arranged to play, and the other two ignored each other. The atmosphere was very awkward.

Later on, Jiǎn Míng Xià no longer asked for trouble.

Jiǎn Míng Xià muttered to oneself irresolutely and said, “Actually, I didn’t know at the beginning. I went home some time ago and called her out to play, but she said she was fitting a wedding dress, and I knew she was getting married. Before that, I hadn’t received any news.”

Fēng Zhēng asked, “Did she not tell you that she was in a serious relationship?”

“No.” Jiǎn Míng Xià shook her head.

“Unworthy to be friends. It is estimated that she has never been in a relationship in her life. So when a man asked for her hand, she happily agreed, regardless of the smell of fragrance.”

Fēng Zhēng’s words were really mean. 

Jiǎn Míng Xià felt that she had said too much, but she also could not really blame her. Why they had fallen out in the first place was still a mystery.

Jiǎn Míng Xià hesitated for a moment, but she still said the thing she had in mind:”I don’t think this is the reason. In fact, she was in a relationship last year. The man was in his early thirties. He was in good condition, but I felt something was wrong. No man will keep emphasizing for you to buy a house when he is in love. Lǐ Lì Xiāng is not the kind of person who will talk about house. As a result, that man kept telling Lǐ Lì Xiāng that he would give her a house before marriage, and then give her parents a house. Lǐ Lì Xiāng was a little moved, saying that the man probably loved her sincerely. But I don’t think there is a reason to draw radishes like this, so I said that the man must be a swindler, Lǐ Lì Xiāng didn’t believe it.”

En.” Fēng Zhēng responded absentmindedly.

Jiǎn Míng Xià continued: “Later, on New Year Lǐ Lì Xiāng wanted to take him home to see his parents. The man said he would go to the company first and get the year-end bonus. As a result, he never came back . His mobile phone couldn’t get through and no one lived where he did.”

“Don’t think about it, it must be a swindler. I think he already got a wife and children at home. He was lonely working in the field and wanted to trick a young girl into bed. Lǐ Lì Xiāng is well-behaved and looks like an easily prey. Did he succeed?”

Jiǎn Míng Xià shook his head: “I’m not sure, Lǐ Lì Xiāng said no, when I ask again, she won’t tell me more. So she suddenly got married this time, I feel deeply hurt, but I am also worried that she will be cheated again.”

Fēng Zhēng sneered: “Maybe you hit the nail on the head at the beginning, so she feels embarrassed, so she is unwilling to tell you this time. Regardless of her, she will get the consequences of her own choice when she cries in the future.”

Jiǎn Míng Xià felt like Fēng Zhēng was a wrong person to have a heart-to-heart chat with. After the chat, she became more worried. She turned to ask about Fēng Zhēng’s current situation: “How are you doing recently?”

It was a matter of her own. Fēng Zhēng hesitated before saying: “Xià Xià, I don’t want to live with him.”

Jiǎn Míng Xià went silent before she asked: “Because he beat you?”

Fēng Zhēng shook her head and said, “Although he has a bad temper, he won’t be able to beat people. This time, I beat him first. He accidentally hit me by smashing something. I don’t want to live with him because, after so many years, he is still like a kid, thinking about playing all day. We are not young anymore, but he has no plans for the future. I’m so tired.”

Jiǎn Míng Xià did not know if she was on a whim this time, or she really had made a decision. She could only give her a hug and comfort her: “No matter what decision you have to make, I welcome you here.”

Though you have let me down too many times.

But I still want to be your friend.
