I couldn’t sleep, so I got up with very light movements.
I couldn’t sleep and I got up with very light movements. I took my phone and looked at it, it was a message from Muzi, “Xiaoshu, I can’t sleep, I want to eat green mangoes!”
I couldn’t help but laugh, indeed they were good sisters, they could even agree on something like eating.
Me: “I can’t sleep either, I’m especially craving the autumn tomatoes in Huaian’s yard right now!”
Muzi: “Ahhh! Me too, I’ve been wanting to eat that green mango in front of my old house lately, but it’s too far away to eat, and I hear the old house is about to be developed.”
Me: “Well, one can only think of that!”
It’s all a memory thing, how can that be easily achieved.
The bedroom was a bit dark and I couldn’t really sleep, so I gingerly went out of the bedroom, ready to go downstairs to see if there were any tomatoes, and if I couldn’t eat autumn tomatoes, I would eat some of the same to satisfy my craving.
I hadn’t even gone downstairs when the phone suddenly rang, which startled me.
When I picked up the phone, I spoke in a warm voice, “What’s up?”
“Do you want to eat autumn tomatoes?” By the sound of his voice, he seemed to be wide awake.
I was so scared that I was about to drop my phone and raised my voice, “Shen Yu, are you sick, what have you installed in my phone?”
He said lazily, “It’s just a simple monitor, don’t get excited, I just want to know how you are doing, nothing more.”
“You’re sick!” I was so angry I wanted to smash the phone.
“Take it easy!” He sounded a little aggrieved, “I just want to know what you’re up to all the time so I can have peace of mind, plus I’ll know what you want first.”
“Something’s wrong!” I hung up the phone and dropped it straight into the water.
My heart was heaving with anger, when did he put his hands on my phone?
After all the drama, I was long out of the mood and sat in the hall, restless for a while.
I stayed up until the middle of the night when I fell asleep on the sofa in the hall and woke up with an extra blanket on top of me.
When I opened my eyes, I met Fu Shenyan’s low, cold gaze.
I froze, opened my mouth and said, “Good morning!”
“Why did you come here to sleep?” He spoke, his voice a little low.
“I couldn’t sleep last night, so I came down and fell asleep here without realising it.”
He sulked, “So you couldn’t sleep next to me?”
I shook my head in a rush, “No!”
Somewhat grumpily, “I just couldn’t sleep and came down for a walk, no ……”
Seeing that I was not in the right state, he held me in his arms and eased his voice, “Okay, I know, I don’t blame you, I’m just worried that you might catch a cold if you sleep here, you can wake me up later if you can’t sleep, I’ll talk and chat with you, eh?”
Who couldn’t feel it in my heart, he was accommodating me, all the time.
I nodded and leaned slightly into his arms, easing a few emotions.
It was supposed to be a small interlude, and after breakfast we went straight to the cemetery, early and in good weather.
He had booked the offerings in advance, and the road up the hill was a bit damp, so Fu Shenyan pulled me along and walked more slowly.
The sun was already up when we arrived, and without taking a few steps, I stopped, my eyes fixed on the person in front of my grandfather’s tombstone.
I couldn’t help but frown.
Fu Shenyan also saw Lu Xinran standing in front of the tombstone, she was wearing a black dress, probably because she never wears black dresses, so I was a bit baffled at first.
Seeing that it was Lu Xinran, I couldn’t help but look sideways at Fu Shen Yan and frown, “You called her?”
After I replied, he stepped forward, walked to Lu Xinran’s side and spoke indifferently, “Why are you here?”
“Nothing, I just keep dreaming of my brother these days, I miss him especially in my heart, so I came to see him, and by the way, I came to see Grandpa Fu.” She looked at me and Fu Shenyin and said with a light smile, “I was surprised to meet you here, what a coincidence!”
I had forgotten that Lu Xinran’s brother was also buried here, and my heart was unaccountably a little hard to bear.
I walked up and placed the offerings I had brought one by one in front of my grandfather’s tombstone. Because of my big belly, I couldn’t kneel down, so I bowed three times deeply.
Fu Shen Yan looked at me, his gaze deepened, reached out and pulled me, holding me in his hand, and raised his hand to wipe away the tear marks on my face.
His voice was low, “Don’t cry, the child will feel bad after you!”
I nodded my head and looked at the black and white photo of my grandfather on the tombstone and said, “Grandpa, Shen Yan and I have a baby, next time we visit you, we will be a family of three, and you will be fine in the other world.”
Looking at Fu Shen Yan, I paused and my voice was a little low, “Don’t worry, me and Shen Yan are fine now, he takes care of me and loves me and loves the baby!”
These words, I admit, were said to Lu Xinran.
She looked a little ugly and tugged at the corner of Fu Shen Yan’s coat, “Brother Shen Yan, can you go and see brother? You haven’t gone to see him for a long time.”
I lowered my eyes, knowing in my heart that Lu Xinran wanted to use the dead man to win over Fu Shen Yan’s soft heart and old feelings.
Fu Shen Yan looked at me with a light gaze that seemed to be inquisitive.
I looked at my grandfather’s tombstone and spoke, “I’ll go with you! Mr. Lu was your brother after all, so you should take me to meet him too!”
Saying that, I lifted the offering in the basket and saw Lu Xinran looking at me with a bad face, as if he was holding back.
Fu Shen Yan took the basket from my hand and pulled me along, “Good!”
The cemetery was not large and not far away, looking at the young man on the tombstone, very handsome, but the three-dimensional features still could not hide his long-standing sickly look.
Lu Xinran’s eyes turned red as soon as he reached the tombstone, tears crackling downward, crying with a hoarse voice, “Brother, Shen Yan brother is here to see you.”
Fu Shen Yan placed the basket of offerings in front of the tombstone and bowed deeply, his gaze deep and distant as he looked at the photo on the tombstone.
I bowed and stood beside Fu Shen Yan, looking at Lu Xin Ran’s seemingly genuine grief.
After a long time, Fu Shen Yan spoke, “Let’s go!”
The company’s main business is to provide a wide range of products and services to the public.
“Brother Shen Yan, for the sake of my brother, for the sake of him treating you as a brother as a family member, I beg you, don’t throw down, okay? I really don’t want anything, I just want to stay by you, Zhuan Yan and Brother Jun Yu, we are still like before, I am still your sister, OK, you don’t abandon me, I don’t want to be alone.”
Fu Shen Yan’s originally downcast face was somewhat moved, I know him too well, warm and barren, needing warmth and willing to give it to others.
