[simplified Chinese]

 

她最终选择了回去,回到大山里那些需要她的亲人身

边。养母送了她很远,把她看了又看,好像要把失而

复得的女儿牢牢的看在眼里,再也不愿失去。

临别时,女儿对养母说”妈,女儿还会来看你的,下次

一定带着你的小外孙来。”养母含着泪点了点头,目送

着女儿远去。

她的故事到这里就讲完了. 青春的热血可以书写历

史,也可以酿制一杯苦酒。让我们一起祝福善良的她

和她的家人们永远幸福,平安!

[English translation]

In the end she decided to go back, back to the family that needed her so much. Her Mom went a long way out with her, she couldn’t keep her eyes off her daughter, as if that’s the only way she could keep her previously lost daughter by her side, never to lose again.

At the moment that they departed, she told her Mom:”Mom, I promise I will come back to see you again. I will bring your grandson with me next time.” Her Mom nodded, then she slowly disappeared in her Mom’s teary eyes.

That’s the end of her story.

The blood of youth, it could write the history, or brewed bitter wine. Let’s bless the warm-hearted girl and her family to have a happy and peaceful life forever.
