Chapter 124 Two Pairs of Slippers
The project in Wan Chai Resort is finally implemented.
In recent days, Wu Helian has stopped coming to the company.
In the back garden of the Wu family villa, Wu Jizong and his wife Ji Yuehua are serving cold tea under the flower stand being built.
The back garden is lush, and the summer hot wind will make people feel a little more comfortable. Suddenly footsteps sounded behind him, Wu Jizong and Ji Yuehua looked back at the same time, and saw Wu Helian walking towards them. Ji Yuehua smiled gently, but just put down her tea cup, as if she was about to leave.
Wu Helian saw that she was leaving, and she said in a deep voice, “I’ll leave after saying a few words, you don’t have to leave.”
Ji Yuehua just got up and heard him say that, sitting quietly and no longer moving.
Wu Jizong held a pipe in the corner of his mouth, holding a purple sand teapot in his left hand, and a pair of old eyes turned towards him, as if waiting for him. Wu Helian stood beside him and said indifferently, “The project in the Wan Chai resort has been completed.”
The meaning of this sentence sounds like farewell. Wu Jizong snorted coldly, “Why? Going away? Go to America?”
Wu Helian No longer responding to his inquiries, just saying, “I’ll go to see Miao Ke.”
Wu Helian’s consistent indifference made Wu Jizong very dissatisfied, just a few words coming and going. When he left, he angrily spit out the three words “not ridiculous”, put the purple sand teapot on the table sideways, got up a pipe and walked in the opposite direction. Ji Yuehua quickly got up and chased to appease, “Master, you are breathing down, be careful of your high blood pressure.”
Miss Wu Miao Ke of Wu Family usually only has a hobby of painting, so she is generally either in the studio or in the bedroom. But strangely, Wu Helian did not find her in these two places. Asked the housekeeper, and only then knew she was in the piano room. Wu Miaoke suddenly didn’t like painting, and fell in love with playing the piano, there must be only one reason.
The piano room was built in a quiet small loft, with an ivory piano. Wu Miaoke wore a light blue skirt and sat on the piano chair to play the piano. The sun just happened to sprinkle on her, covered with a layer of golden light, like an innocent little angel. It’s just that this little angel seems to be troubled, because she plays it very carefully, but she is still unsatisfactory.
The door was not closed, and Wu Helian stood outside and listened quietly without speaking.
The song didn’t end, Wu Miaoke pressed the keys like a vent, frowning discouragedly.
“It plays well.” Wu Helian suddenly said, male voice hovering in the attic.
Wu Miaoke was shocked. When he saw Wu Helian, she immediately smiled and pouted with a small mouth, shouting, “Second Brother! You coax me happy again!”
“You haven’t liked playing piano since you were young, and your talents are not on it. It’s pretty good to be able to play like this.” Wu Helian didn’t attack her, but she told the truth. He walked into the piano room and leaned against the wall and asked, “Why did you suddenly learn to play the piano again?”
Miaoke pursed his lips and said shyly, “I want to play with him.” Walked towards her.
“Second brother, do you know? He never ensemble with other girls, if I learn, then I can join him.” Wu Miaoke looked forward, looking forward.
“Isn’t you asking him to come out to meet me? When will you be free?”
“I’m a bit busy lately, I will definitely show him to my second brother.” Wu Miaoke apologized, staring down at the score, But it is even more troublesome.
“Then you have to hurry up.”
“Second brother, are you leaving again?” Wu Miaoke looked up at him, very reluctant.
The look was like a discarded kitten, making Wu Helian soften her expression, “As long as you have a phone call, I will come back at any time.”
“Well.” Wu Miaoke nodded, but there was still an inextricable sadness between the eyebrows. .
Wu Helian reached out and rubbed her little head, spoiled and said, “You don’t need to change yourself, it doesn’t matter if you play the piano, you have something that other girls don’t have.”
“Really?” Wu Miao But his eyes were suddenly bright, and he looked up at him.
Wu Miaoke’s instantaneous light, the anticipation burst out from under his eyes, if there is seemingly aroused Wu Helian’s memory, the eyes in the memory are also as bright as this, even a shy expression, pink lips, all Clearly came to mind, vividly remembered. He solemnly nodded to Wu Miaoke, his fingers touched the keys, and fell between his fingers, “ding—-” sounded.
Song Fangsheng stayed at home for three days, Wu Helian’s cell phone broke, so he could not be reached. The last phone call was in the afternoon three days ago. She called the company directly and transferred to him. His voice was extremely low on the phone, and he said nothing, but told her to take care of herself.
Since talking with Yao Yongxin that day, Song Fangsheng hasn’t been to Wus very much. She also knew that he was busy with work, so she didn’t bother him.
But after a long time, I couldn’t bear it anymore.
Song Fangsheng found Wu Haoyang, but Wu Haoyang couldn’t tell clearly.
When the company was away and the phone was disconnected, Song Fangsheng had to wait at Yinshen’s apartment.
Waiting until six o’clock in the evening, Wu Helian appeared slowly.
“Ahe.” Song Fangsheng shouted with joy.
The shout made Wu Helian, who was standing in the elevator, suddenly look up, only to see it was her, and he resumed his silence, “How do you stand here.”
“I…” Song Fangsheng thought for a while, and said softly, “Just passing by, just Come up and see if you are there. I just wanted to go, but I didn’t expect you to come.”
Wu Helian opened the door with the key . As soon as the door was pushed open, the oncoming air was cold.
Without the man who opened the door for him, he got used to facing the empty apartment again.
“Sit casually.” Wu Helian entered the apartment, Shen Sheng said.
Song Fangsheng stood at the entrance and had taken off his shoes, just about to change slippers, but Wu Helian stood not far from her and said, “No need to change.”
There are two pairs of slippers on the shoe rack, the same style for men and women, one for each pair , Turned out to be a couple.
The square pattern of the founder is blue, the men’s models are darker, and the women’s models are lighter.
Song Fangsheng stood there awkwardly, stunned.
I am afraid that the subconscious subordination and acquiescence have already been deeply ingrained unconsciously.
Song Fangsheng froze for a few seconds, then put the shoes back on his feet. She walked to the sofa in the living room and sat down. Wu Helian took the juice from the refrigerator and poured a glass for her. Song Fangsheng took the juice and took a sip. The apple flavor was very sweet. She smiled and said, “How come you have started to drink the juice. You never drink it before.”
Wu Helian is taking cigarettes from the cigarette case. Song Fangsheng’s words let him For a moment, he didn’t answer, but lit the smoke.
He has always been silent and Song Fangsheng knows all. But the glass of apple juice in her hand made her feel a bit sour. Wu Helian in her memory never touches sweet food. He didn’t bother to touch anything with a sweet taste. No matter how she begged him, he would not touch it.
But now, he already has juice in his refrigerator.
Song Fangsheng sat for a while, trying to break the deadlock, “Ah, your phone is broken, didn’t you buy a new one?”
Wu Helian silently “en” with a burst of white smoke.
“Shall I go buy it with you now?” Song Fangsheng placed the juice cup on the coffee table and stared at his proposal.
“No need.” He returned three words indifferently.
“Why wouldn’t it be necessary? Without a mobile phone, it’s so inconvenient.” Song Fangsheng said with surprise. Everyday you need to use a mobile phone. Now who else will go without a mobile phone.
Wu Helian bowed her head and lowered her eyes, her eyes were deep, Shen Jing said, “Is it the same?”
Song Fangsheng’s smile froze in the corner of his mouth, his handsome face was impenetrable emotions, as if there was a mist. She didn’t understand what he meant, but she seemed to know something vaguely. Is it the same? Why do you say that because of who? What happened, he can no longer use his mobile phone.
“Ahe.” Song Fangsheng asked softly, trembling and asked, “Are you in conflict with Miss Gu?” The
smoking stopped slightly, Wu Helian twisted two sword eyebrows, the expression was a little dazed, and said quietly, “I don’t know.”
Song Fangsheng was in a trance for a moment, and the daze in his eyes made her feel worried. Because of this gap, even if she didn’t want to know, she had to know. Yao Yongxin’s words have been hovering around her ears, making her unable to continue to Wu Shi. But what should she do to give up, the past and emotion that can’t be put down.
Why do women embarrass women? They have the same fragile soul.
“Ahe, is it because of me that you and Miss Gu…I just…I don’t want to…I…” Song Fangsheng’s thoughts were in a mess, and the words were incoherent. In a panic, she fled and seemed to grab the
shoulder bag and stood up to the porch. “I’m sorry, I’m gone.” Wu Helian didn’t chase, but Shen Sheng said, “It’s not your fault.”
Song Fangsheng held the door tightly Handle, open the door and rush out.
She did not forget that typhoon night, when she held him tight and begged him to stay, he turned and pressed her shoulders, staring and said: Sheng, you are not alone. Chenchen will also be afraid.
Song Fangsheng sat in the taxi and lowered the car window by half.
The hot wind blew on his face, as painful as a knife cut.
a week after the breakup, Gu Xiaochen felt nothing had changed. She went well to get off work and off work, and she handled her job well. She didn’t stay up late and didn’t work overtime. Except before going to bed, a little insomnia. When I woke up, I was a little lost, and everything else was really good.
At the weekend, Gu Xiaochen washed everything that could be washed, as if to wash away traces of someone. Take it to the roof to dry, looking at the sheets, quilt covers and pillowcases scented with washing powder under the sun, her heart is like the endless sky, clear blue.
But blue, isn’t that a melancholy color?
Gu Xiaochen looked at the watch and it was almost time, Yan Xudong asked her to meet at 1pm. After changing clothes, she went out with a shoulder bag. The meeting point was at the Landmark, take the bus to the downtown area, and get off the road to go some way. Both sides are shopping mall buildings, and the sun shines on the mirror glass of the building, which is dazzling.
In front of a couple riding on a bicycle, Gu Xiaochen made his debut sideways, watching the couple ride by.
In the corner of the square, Gu Xiaochen finally found Yan Xudong.
Yan Xudong, wearing a beige casual T-shirt, looks refreshing and handsome. He reached out to her and held two movie tickets. “Let’s go to the movies.”
Gu Xiaochen nodded and walked with him to the movie theater not far away.
While on the road, she asked Yan Xudong what movie to watch. Yan Xudong told her that this is the latest comedy movie. I heard that people who watched movies did not laugh. The fifth viewing hall of the theater, two positions in the middle of the sixth row. Almost without a seat, obviously a hit movie. From the beginning to the end of the movie, laughter continued to fill.
Gu Xiaochen was also amused by the movie, and the quiet face raised his smile, very happy.
Yan Xudong glanced at her quietly, but she felt like a breath of air.
The movie broke up and the two walked out of the cinema quietly.
“Is the movie beautiful?”
Yan Xudong asked, and Gu Xiaochen answered.
The two walked out of the theater side by side, planning to go to the nearby restaurant for dinner. While eating, talk about the plot in the movie. Although it is a farce, there are some philosophies in the play. Driving her home, Yan Xudong took her into the alley and stood in front of the building. He suddenly said, “Xiao Chen, Monday to Sunday, you can find me at any time, I am free.”
Gu Xiaochen looked sideways To him, he saw that he was a little firm in his gentleness, “Xudong, I like today’s movie very much. Especially what the heroine said.”
“What?” Yan Xudong asked confusedly.
Gu Xiaochen smiled lightly, like a reply, and said softly, “I can’t find the umbrella I like. I’d rather rain.”
The soft female voice came into my ear and Yan Xudong’s heart fluttered. It’s just that Jun Yan’s tenderness doesn’t diminish. It seemed to be expected that there would be such an answer, a pair of star eyes gleaming in the moonlight, the corner of the mouth slightly raised, learning the innocent tone of the actor in the movie, said, “But there have been two rains this week. Three days for a game and four days for a second game.”
“So it’s been raining for a week.” Gu Xiaochen couldn’t help but laugh out loud, and the whole person was suddenly cheerful.
“Xiaochen, we are friends. At any time, friends will always be by your side.” Yan Xudong stared at each other, speaking carefully. But deep inside his condensed eyes, there was an unknown black ocean. Yan Xudong’s simple words, but as heavy as gold, made Gu Xiaochen feel warm.
But before she thanked her, he said first, “Okay, it’s not early, you go to rest early.”
Gu Xiaochen waved at him, dinged “Be careful on the road”, and turned into the apartment building.
The night was deep, there was no one in the alley, but the sound of footsteps echoed.
Yan Xudong thought deeply, but kept circling the sentence in his ear, which could not dissipate for a long time.
I can’t find the umbrella I like, I would rather rain.
But Gu Xiaochen, how long do you plan to rain?
One week, one month, one year, or longer.
That favorite umbrella may already be in the hands of others.
How do you find it.
CD player plays “Ode to Joy”, melodious and beautiful.
It’s just that the music loops indefinitely.
This is the composition of Beethoven, the fourth movement of the ninth symphony.
Song Fangsheng locked herself in the study room again, from day to night, and until nine o’clock in the evening, she went to bed on time. During the day, she was holding a book wrapped in transparent paper and reading it repeatedly. In the evening, the bottle of candy will definitely be on the pillow.
Auntie takes care of her every day, there is nothing wrong with three meals.
Song Fangsheng also eats on time, although he eats less, but it is much better than the days before the illness. It was just that she stopped talking and became very silent. Auntie will take the initiative to chat with her. She always smiles or shakes her head.
Gradually, she could not say the first half of the sentence throughout the day.
The aunt even wondered if she had an accident, but it was not like that. So when I report to Mr. Wu every day, I always say that Miss Song is very good.
Wu Haoyang went to the mainland to attend the meeting, so he was not in Hong Kong these days.
He didn’t return to Hong Kong until Saturday night.
When Wu Haoyang saw Song Fangsheng, he realized that it was not so good on the phone. In recent days, the aunt only told him that she had eaten and slept on time. He also thought she was fine. But now that I saw her, I felt like she was a walking dead, without a soul, like she had no goal.
Wu Haoyang walked in front of Song Fangsheng and shouted, “Fang Sheng.”
Song Fangsheng raised his head, and a beautiful face was not haggard, smiling at him.
“Fang Sheng, what are you doing recently?”
She lifted the book in his hand toward him, meaning to read.
“What did you eat?”
She grabbed his hand and wrote a word in his palm-rice.
She opened her bright eyes and nodded.
Has Song Fangsheng become dumb?
This is absolutely impossible, but she just didn’t speak.
Wu Haoyang repeatedly asked, asking her to speak, but she nodded or shook her head. If this was not possible, he simply took a pen and paper to write the words into text, and then showed him.
She really looks dumb.
After some patient conversation, Wu Haoyang couldn’t stand it, grabbed the pen and paper in her hand, and shouted in a deep voice, “What are you doing? Why don’t you speak! Do you know someone will worry about you!” Do you want us to die? Song Fangsheng, when did you become so irrational?”
Song Fangsheng looked at him quietly for a long while.
Finally, she moved her lips and whispered, “My mash.”
Perhaps the reason for not speaking for a long time, her voice was very hoarse.
Wu Haoyang’s eyes immediately glanced at the candy next to her. After a long period of sunlight, the hard candy in the glass bottle finally melted. The sugar juice penetrates through the wrapped paper, but it will spoil for a long time. Suddenly his heart softened, and Shen Sheng said, “Tomorrow I will buy it for you, but you can’t
stop talking or tormenting yourself.” Song Fangsheng bit his lips and asked in pain, “Hao Yang, am I a third party?” ?”
She didn’t realize this, she just wanted to be with him. If it wasn’t for Yao Yongxin’s sudden conversation that day, she didn’t even feel it. But is she really that third party?
Her question made Wu Haoyang stunned and didn’t even know how to answer it. And she looked at herself like this, the child whose eyes looked like disorientated, so helpless and even more afraid. He reached out and touched her head, and said quietly, “Fang Sheng, eight years later, you may be late.”
Coming late. Coming late. Come… late. Song Fangsheng read these three words silently in his heart, but felt that his heart was like a knife.
“I’m just…” She choked out halfway through her words, but she couldn’t help but feel sad again. The inexplicable bitterness made her cry in tears, and the crystal tears flowed down her eyes, saying intermittently, “I I just want to know that if I don’t talk to him anymore, and never see him again, I can do it, but I just can’t forget…”
“No one makes you forget.” Wu Haoyang embraced her in her arms, Murmured, “The past things can not be forgotten, but when it is time to let go, be sure to put it down.”
Song Fangsheng burst into tears, she felt she was trapped in the maze, but she could not find the exit.
