心锁 36


在她的记忆里,离开柳镇后,就再没听爸爸拉过琴。

爸爸总是很忙,为了生计,四处奔波。

小吉央求过爸爸拉琴,爸爸却总不答应,他说,音乐由感而发,由心而生,找不到感觉,不如不拉。

为此,小吉很生爸爸的气。

后来,爸爸和别人合开了"恒远电器",变得更加忙碌。

Lock of the Heart 36

As far as she could remember, since they left Liu Town, Dad had never played his violin.

He had always been so busy. To make ends meet, he had kept moving on his feet.

Xiaoji asked Dad to play violin for her, but he never did. He said that music was the natural flow from one’s heart and feelings. Without the right feelings, there was no point to play it.

For that, Xiaoji was upset of him.

Later, Dad set up “Heng Yuan Electronics” with others. He has become even busier since then.
