Just for Meeting You - Chapter 1
【I only lack you between me and the universe, and because it’s you, it’s okay to be late.】
The world is bigger when it’s bigger, and it’s smaller when it’s smaller
The world is big enough for you to walk for so long that you haven’t met the right person, and small enough to circle around the person you like and see the whole world.
This book was written in the winter, and I wanted to try some changes. This time, instead of writing the stories of so many people around me, I chose to create some cute characters and write the stories in a visual way, because I was thinking that real stories happen every day, and each one of us is already the best recorder. For me, I just want to express more gentle emotions and write more beautiful stories, but not to tell you who this person is in my life, but to use different people to let you substitute in your feelings .
This book is like an umbrella at the door of a hotel. When it rains, it tells you not to get drenched. But it is also like a cruel slap on the face, it reminds you cruelly when you forget your appearance. It, too, is similar to a shout when you drown in a lonely crowd which will surely make you turn back. Yes, someone is looking for you.
This is a compilation of twelve stories with all kinds of men and women. Take a look at it in one of your late nights or in a subway bus on the way. You can choose to meet some of them and feel their love and hate, joy or sorrow, perhaps even madness or regret. It can become a hug and give you some silent comfort when you are alone, secretly in love, brokenhearted, or trying to give up on love.
I hope you read it slowly, listen to songs, eat popcorn, and put it beside your pillow. I believe that the attractiveness of love will surely lead you to the best happiness.
May you enrich the world because of the presence of someone. May your life be like a gilded message on a greeting card. May this long years be gentle and peaceful, with memories of brewing wine. May you have no weakness or need of armor. May we spend our whole lives with our loved ones, with tears in our eyes, and live forever.
I only lack you between me and the universe, and because it’s you, it’s okay to be late.
