I looked at A’s back as he was moving to save Fu Yan. I was in a daze and felt numb. I didn’t even notice Brother Egg jumping down to lift me out of the water. He asked me several times if I was ok, but I didn’t respond to him. Brother Egg said he was scared at the time, watching me floating quietly on the sea, neither struggling, nor moving, nor answering him. He thought I was unconscious until he saw my red eyes and my face full of tears.
After A had grabbed Fu Yan, he realized Fu Yan was not the only one who had fallen into the water. He looked at me and called my name. His voice seemed a bit anxious. Of course, it couldn’t compare to the anguished voice he had used when calling Fu Yan.
Fu Yan and I had fallen into the water almost 10 meters away, and two professional lifeguards also jumped down, one on my side and one on Fu Yan’s side. A must have realized something. After saying a few words to Fu Yan and confirming that he was ok, he handed him to the lifeguard and swam toward me.
I didn’t really want him to come because I was so embarrassed to cry. I knew in my heart that this was the last time I cried for this person. The last and only time. I didn’t want him to find out these tears were shed for him. I didn’t want him to see the most humble and unbearable me.
These tears were a farewell to A, a farewell to the desperate and ignorant in love Xiao Xi, and also a farewell to my five years of love that were more bitter than sweet. I did not want to invite A to take part in this farewell ceremony, nor did I need to. I could deal with it myself and then find a gradual early morning or sunny afternoon to start afresh.
I tried my best to resist the urge to cry. I turned my head to look at Brother Egg, and my voice was still trembling when I opened my mouth, asking if he could take me aboard. By the time A was about to reach me, Brother Egg and a lifeguard had already pulled me up onto the speedboat. Fu Yan and the other speedboat drivers who had fallen into the water were also almost up.
I hadn’t felt it in the water, but as soon as I was aboard, I felt a piercing pain in my right ankle that caused me to frown while moving. I didn’t know which tendon I had pulled. I remember hanging somewhere near the speedboat when I was rushed out. The lifeguard wanted to check it out. As soon as he grabbed my foot, it hurt, and I inhaled sharply. On the side, A was a little angry and asked him to be gentler. I didn’t know what he was mad about. Didn’t he know that what hurt me the most was him thinking about Fu Yan at the most critical moment?
It broke my heart, and it also became deeply etched in my bones.
Fu Yan’s arm was bruised, scratched, and bloody. Otherwise, he seemed fine. We had to go ashore to find a doctor right away.
On the way back, the atmosphere between the four of us was embarrassing, and we each had our own thoughts. Brother Egg was taking care of Fu Yan, and A was sitting next to me. He has been talking to me from the time I got onto the speedboat, asking me whether it hurt. I ignored him, closed my eyes, and leaned back in the seat. I was dizzy from the glaring noon sun. A stretched out his arm to hug me. I wanted to avoid him, but he noticed and held me tighter. I didn’t have the strength to pull back, so I let him hold me. A’s mouth was pressed against my ear, saying over and over that it’s ok, it’s ok. I didn’t know whether he was comforting me or himself.
[1st floor] what’s on my mind: Hurry up, hurry up and break up! I’ve been waiting for this moment for a long time!
[2nd floor] Passersby A, B, C, D: Xiao Xi be good, don’t cry. Let’s find a good, rich, and handsome guy and start again! Annoying scum A!
[3rd floor] blue.: Distressed
[8th floor] Responsible for being beautiful at Lao Li’s house: yingying, our Xiao Xi finally let go! I’m so relieved and moved (cry.jpg)
[9th floor] Once in a lifetime Yu: A is so annoying. Since he chose to save the white moonlight, when going ashore, he first went to comfort the white moonlight and then came to Xiao Xi. Is he sick? First a stick and then a carrot. Oh, how wonderful. Does he think he is Takeshi Kaneshiro or Daniel Wu?
[10th floor] Venting my anger: I would break up even with faces like Takeshi Kaneshiro and Daniel Wu.
[17th floor] XOXO: OP, I’ve been waiting for a day, but you’ve become a bit spicier. Caught you, you’re not allowed to go (aegyo.jpg)
[18th floor] Xiao Li, your mother asked you to accept the award: Upstairs is spot on, and Xiao Xi is not allowed to go (Listen to the stormy call of my heart) !!!
The author has something to say:
Well, I just ask weakly, if I give A and Xiao Xi HE in the end, will everyone scold me? (poor.jpg)
After all, I really planned it this way from the beginning. Look at the blurb. There is no third party. (finger poke.jpg)
When the author uploaded the novel to Gongzicp, she didn’t transfer the “The author has something to say” footnotes from allcp.net. I often find them rather cute, so I am translating them.
