心锁 12


“小吉,吃饭啦!"罗致远脱下围裙,往女儿的碗里夹了块炸鸡腿。

女儿踩着拖鞋,从里屋走出来。只是一剎那,罗致远仿佛看见了“她”。

他仔细端祥着女儿。

“爸,你看我干嘛?"小吉不满地问。

十五岁的女儿最近好象有心事。

罗致远笑了笑,心想,女儿大了,脾气也大了。

“看你,快有爸爸高了。来,尝尝我新学的炸鸡,味道怎么样?"

小吉懒懒地尝了一口,又放下筷子。

“爸,妈到底是怎么死的?"

心鎖 12

 

“小吉,吃飯啦!"羅致遠脫下圍裙,往女兒的碗裏夾了塊炸雞腿。

女兒踩着拖鞋,從裏屋走出來。只是一剎那,羅致遠彷彿看見了“她”。

他仔細端祥着女兒。

“爸,你看我幹嘛?"小吉不滿地問。

十五歲的女兒最近好象有心事。

羅致遠笑了笑,心想,女兒大了,脾氣也大了。

“看你,快有爸爸高了。來,嚐嚐我新學的炸雞,味道怎麼樣?"

小吉懶懶地嚐了一口,又放下筷子。

“爸,媽到底是怎麼死的?"

Lock of the Heart 12

“Xiaoji, time to eat!” Lou Zhiyuan took off his apron and added a fried drumstick to his daughter’s bowl.

The girl stepped out from her bedroom in her slippers. In a flash second, Lou Zhiyuan had the illusion that it was actually “she” out there.

He started studying her.

“Dad, why are you staring at me?” Xiaoji asked, being upset.

The fifteen-year-old looked like in a gloomy mind lately.

Luo Zhiyuan brushed it off, accepting the fact that his daughter would get moodier while she’s growing older.

“Look at you, you’re almost as tall as I am. Come have a taste of my new fried chicken, do you like it?”

Xiaoji took a bite carelessly, and then put down her chopsticks.

“Dad, how exactly did Mom die?”
