心锁 43


罗致远搂住女儿,多年来的心酸一涌而上,"小吉,你那时还小,怎么能怪你呢?"

“小吉,只要你好好生活,妈妈在天上一定会开心的!"林琳边说,边轻抚小吉的长发。

“小吉,你别这样,我会内疚一辈子的。"安亚在一边眼睛红红地说。


从那天开始,小吉觉得世界在改变。

爸爸还和往常一样,勤奋地工作,尽心尽力地照顾这个家。

改变的其实是她自己。

她会在爸爸下班回家时,为她泡一杯热茶。

她会主动打扫房间,洗晒衣物。

她会悄悄为爸爸缝上掉落的钮扣。

她会在爸爸感冒时为他煮一碗姜汤。

心鎖 43

 

羅致遠摟住女兒,多年來的心酸一涌而上,"小吉,你那時還小,怎麼能怪你呢?"

“小吉,只要你好好生活,媽媽在天上一定會開心的!"林琳邊說,邊輕撫小吉的長髮。

“小吉,你別這樣,我會內疚一輩子的。"安亞在一邊眼睛紅紅地說。

從那天開始,小吉覺得世界在改變。

爸爸還和往常一樣,勤奮地工作,盡心盡力地照顧這個家。

改變的其實是她自己。

她會在爸爸下班回家時,爲她泡一杯熱茶。

她會主動打掃房間,洗曬衣物。

她會悄悄爲爸爸縫上掉落的鈕釦。

她會在爸爸感冒時爲他煮一碗薑湯。

 

 

[English]

Lock of the Heart 43

Luo Zhiyuan hold his daughter in his arms, with bitter sweet feelings filling his chest, “Xiaoji, you were so little back then, how could we ever blame it on you?”

“Xiaoji, as long as you live well, your Mom is sure to be happy in heaven.” Lin Lin said and stroke Xiaoji’s hair.

“Xiaoji, please don’t say so. Otherwise I’ll be guilty for the rest of my life.” Anya said with wet eyes.
Since that day, Xiaoji started to feel that the world was changing.

Her Daddy was still the same, working and taking care of the family as diligently as he could.

The one who was changing was actually herself.

She would make a cup of hot tea for her Dad when he came back from work.

She would volunteer to clean up the house and do laundry.

She would quietly sew a loose button for him.

She would stew ginger soup for him when he caught a cold.
