心锁 3


一周后。

佛云山的夜,风很大。

女生们躲进旅馆,裹在被子里,轮流讲鬼故事。

小吉讲完,轮到安亚了。她胆小,哪会讲什么鬼故事?

“讲别的故事也行,要有点害怕的。"女生们鼓励她。

安亚闭起眼睛,想了半天,说,“讲件真事可以吗?发生在我的家乡柳镇。"

“好啊,真事更好!"女生们叫嚷着。

小吉也期待地看着她,"快讲啊,安亚!我很小就从柳镇搬到这里,从来没有回去过,真想听听那里发生的事情。"

一週後。

佛雲山的夜,風很大。

女生們躲進旅館,裹在被子裏,輪流講鬼故事。

小吉講完,輪到安亞了。她膽小,哪會講什麼鬼故事?

“講別的故事也行,要有點害怕的。"女生們鼓勵她。

安亞閉起眼睛,想了半天,說,“講件真事可以嗎?發生在我的家鄉柳鎮。"

“好啊,真事更好!"女生們叫嚷着。

小吉也期待地看着她,"快講啊,安亞!我很小就從柳鎮搬到這裏,從來沒有回去過,真想聽聽那裏發生的事情。"

Lock of the Heart 3

One week later.

Gusty winds blew through the night of Foyun Mountains.

Girls were all wrapped up in bed in the hotel, telling ghost stories in turns.

When Xiaoji finished, it was Anya’s turn. She was easily scared, there’s no way she could tell a ghost story.

She closed her eyes, thought for a while and pleaded,”Can I tell a real story instead? It happened in my hometown Liu Town.”

“Awesome! It’s even better if it’s a real story! ” the girls shouted.

Xiaoji also gave Anya an eager look,”Come on, Anya! I left Liu Town since I was very young. I’ve never gone back since then. You don’t know how much I want to hear about stories that happened there.”
