心锁 28


安亚坐在水房里,手里拿着一本书,却无心去读。

她看了看周围。方形的水池已经干枯。上面落着一层枯叶。

雨停了,小吉还没有出来。安亚能听见音乐声隐隐传来。小吉说过,她想单独待在里面。

安亚来时问过她,"如果你发现你爸对你妈的死确实付有责任,你会怎么样?"

小吉咬着嘴唇,半天才说,"我不知道… 我不知道我会不会原谅他。也许会,也许不会。但我有种感觉,我是记得整件事的经过的。就是怎么也想不起来。"

Lock of the Heart 28

Anya was sitting in the laundry room, a book in hand but not in the mood to read.

She looked around. The square basin was all dried up. A layer of dry leaves covered the bottom.

The rain stopped, Xiaoji hadn’t come out. Anya could hear music sifting through the walls. Xiaoji  had told her that she preferred to stay inside alone.

Anya had asked her when they first came,” If you find out your Dad was responsible for your Mom’s death, what will you do then?”

Xiaoji bit her lips and thought for a while,” I don’t know … I don’t know if I can forgive him. Maybe I will, maybe not. I have the feeling that I actually remember the whole thing, but somehow I just can’t vision it.”
