The life sometimes shows u the painful part. it tortures u,and never let u go out..

But sometimes he is generous,almost out of surprise...

Fangfang was just like an gift to my life..It seemed as if after I walked around in the shadow for so long time,sunlight suddernly came in..I felt warm and had a peaceful mood on my mind.

Until one day ,it was my birthday..

My birthday was in summer,and that evening,i ordered a cake .

when I took the cake back home,giong through the gate of building district,i saw a girl who was selling flowers.

And I bought a rose ,thinking to give my wife a surprise.

--Fangfang was glad,she kissed me and asked me if her new hairstyle was goodlooking. it was a plait.really thick..

I smiled,and said,"fangfang,i like everything u did for me."

She was so glad and almost skipped to prepared the cake for me.

That night,we made love sweetly.and after that,she said to me softly,"Jim,did u ever give roses to some girls?"

I said no..

Fangfang said,"Jim,i should tell u I had a boy friend before."

"yes?"I touch her plait with hand and said,"Is he handsome?"

"not like u..jim..u are very pure and sexy."She said..

"Do u mean u are not as pure as me?"I asked her carefully.

"yes."she said in low voice.

I didn't ask fangfang more.since I loved her and that was enough.


But her words made me recollect the past...that was six years ago.......

yes...it was Lan..

who i admired ...and who let me be infatuated.

She was these kinds of girl,how to say...popular ,beautiful,some kinds of graceful not artificially..

anyway,my dear friends,when i tried to imatate some kinds of writing skill from some great books which i read....i found it was still difficult to portray a girl ...

forgive me..i will try and try...

it was a desperate thing,yes..when i met Lan and fell in love with here at first glance.and a desperate love ,hopeless at beginning.

One day we drew a picture of some flowers in a vase.

The teacher was an old man.he was really personable.In fact Lan was so graceful that the old painter always flattered her when he taught us.

When he made example for us,we could have a chance to appreciate his good skill on portraying a matter.

one time he took a white paper in hand and clinched it into a ball.

then he made a sketch of the balled paper by a pencil.In several minutes the shade of the complicated facets produced by the light was drawn vividly on his paper.

It was a wonderful performance.

"you should know how to draw the shadow,then u can make the object looks vivid on the paper."the old painter told us,when he didn't stop his pencil.

..

"Next time i will take u to paint the real thing outside."after a while,he began to stroll around .now and than said something about every student's painting.

Our next class soon came.

The teacher took us to a lake.
"now look at these beautiful lotus in the lake."
he pointed by finger.
"and you should treat this lesson like a creative work."

I choosed a place to sit down,and opened the color box .
Since i need water to draw.i went to the lake ,taking a bottle.

Lan was there ,too.

"yes?it is a good weather,right?"I said .
