“I can do it myself.”
“Yunsui, you are still my sister. Even if we already broke up, I can’t treat you as a stranger.”
Qin Yunsui was very uncomfortable.
In the end she gave the drawing board to him and said, “I don’t treat you as a stranger also.”
“That’s good.” Qin Ting put the drawing board on his back.
“I remember the time I used to help you carry the drawing board.”
Qin Yunsui didn’t speak.
She caught a glimpse of a man at the side of her eyes.
Up to the top of the mountain, the man followed slowly behind them, not far or near, but not long after he left silently.
When she saw him, she wanted to call him but when he saw him turning back he swallowed the words.
Lang Ren received a strange call in the evening.
There was a familiar voice on the other end of the phone——”I’m Qin Yunsui, the one who owes you 1000 yuan. Are you… Free now?”
The voice on the other end of the phone was mixed with the roaring wind and the rustling of leaves.
She was still up the hill.
Lang Ren got up and took out a cigarette.
He felt a kind of anxiety in his heart.
“Oh, forget it, it’s already so late to bother you.”
Her tone was a little lost.
Just as Qin Yunsui was about to hang up the phone, Lang Ren looked out of the window.
There was a black night sky outside.
Under the same night sky, a man stood alone with a drawing board on his back.
He lowered his eyes and slowly opened his mouth: “For so many years, why didn’t you ask for any help?”
The person at the other end seemed stunned when he heard this, and then smiled.
Then a soft voice entered Lang Ren’s ears and left a numbness on his heart.
“I’m still in the second Pavilion in Xiangshan. If you don’t come, I’ll be eaten by wild animals, and your 1000 yuan will be gone.”
When Lang Ren arrived, the Wutong trees were shrieking at the wind.
The night sky was dark, with only a few stars.
Under the faint starlight, Qin Yunsui was not inside the pavilion. She was sitting on the steps, holding a Sketchpad and drawing with a concentrated expression.
Hearing the sound of the leaves clenching at the walk of the man, she raised her head. Seeing him she smiled under the starlight and relaxed her eyebrows and eyes: “I thought you wouldn’t come.”
“Since you didn’t think I will come, why call me,” he said angrily.
Seeing that he was really angry, Qin Yunsui immediately raised her hand and surrendered: “I said the wrong thing. I called you to be sure you’re a good man and won’t ignore me.”
Lang Ren stepped forward and said angrily, “Let’s go. I’m just here for the 1000 yuan.”
“Yes, with 1000 yuan you can buy 2000 steamed buns.”
