心锁 21


“还记得,那一天妈妈作画时的背影。她美丽的长发,高高地盘在脑后。

她没能画很长时间,因为四岁大的我吵着要人玩。

我抱着洋娃娃,那个时候,我叫她‘魔法公主’。

妈妈陪我玩了一会儿‘魔法公主’的游戏。

我说想吃饺子。

Lock of the Heart 21

“I still remember looking at Mom’s back when she was sitting there and painting that day.

She wasn’t able to do her painting for too long. That was because her four-year old daughter, me, wanted her accompany.

I was holding my doll. At that time, I called her “Magic Princess”.

Mom played “Magic Princess” game with me for a while.

Then I told her that I wanted to eat dimplings.
