Epilogue 3.6: Special Accidental Episode

Zhong Lian Chen nearly did not get any news on Cheng Shao Rong for nearly a month.

Although she does not want to get his message, but putting that incident aside, whatever the outcome, they are also considered refresher in the foreign land. He should also just check on her, right?

But thinking about it, it would be awkward if they are in contact. So it is better to just forget about the whole incident. Out of sight, out of mind. Cheng Shao Rong must also had the same thought.

In fact, when Cheng Shao Rong was away in the university, they have kept in touch.

He often handwritten letter and sent to her. Really old-fashioned.

The content of the letter are typically boring and serious. Just like writing a work report.

Such as:

“We run ten thousand meters every day with sandbags.”

“Last week, we train up the mountain. And we found a big python.”

“Someone cannot stand the hostel anymore. So he dropped out. Such a pity.”

Although these letters contain only few words, but being bored in her sophomore, his letter has become her most interesting reading materials. Showing her another part of the sky.

Of course, she rarely reply. Occasionally she will write one back. Lesser than his words.

“Ai, pity.”

“Good luck! Good!”

Later, on her third year, the schoolwork gets really busier. In college years, she sheep graze and overspend in blind love. So finally really neglecting their contact. Only when she returns to her grandmother’s place and he went back to his grandmother’s place, they would meet up and catch up.

Time ah…. From the time… the power of the most powerful thing in the world.

She kept his letters. When she discard waste materials and even love letters that she received from the beginning of junior high school, she only kept his letters.

This is mainly due to Cheng Shao Rong writing is very nice. The words are neat and elegant with demeanor generis. Back then, she thought, if one day she decided to practice calligraphy, it would be easier to practice according to his words. If according to those books, using his to practice makes more sense because those words in those books are very common, and do not highlight her unique taste.

As a result, Zhong Lian Chen forgotten about the whole thing. It was placed at the back of her mind until she received his phone call.

Cheng Shao Rong explained that he had not finished his vacation when he received an emergency call to go back to the troops to participate in a closed training. They were only allowed today to contact with the outside world.

Okay. Zhong Lian Chen admitted that she overestimated him. He is still a child that anilities prudish specimen type. No change at all.

They chat for a while. On the other side of the phone, Zhong Lian Chen hearing the sound of the breathing, knew that he was going to get to the subject.

Cheng Shao Rong halt and with little hesitation, finally said it: “Little Chen you…. Your body, all okay?”

“Uh, what does that mean?” Her momentary reaction.

“I mean….. you have not…..”

After a while, Zhong Lian Chen finally understand.

“Cheng Shao Rong, you mean, you did not take any protective measures?” Her forehead started to sweat.

“How would I know that that day I will…… I though afterwards you ……..” In order not to make things worse: “Not to mention the matter.” She percepts.

“I do not have experience! Why did you not remind me?”

“I am also not aware of the problem until a few days before…….”

Zhong Lian Chen back start to sweat. She grabbed the hair and try to recall her menstrual cycle’s dates.

She is done! She cannot remember. She has always not remember her own menstrual cycle.

She did not speak for a long time. In the phone, the little voice had a melting point of anxiety: “Little Chen, if you really have something, I will face it together with you. You do not keep it to yourself. And you make your own decision. If you want to keep it, then we immediately get married. If you do not want it, then you must let me accompany you to the hospital for surgery.”

Zhong Lian Chen cried out: “You better pray that I am okay, Cheng Shao Rong. Otherwise, you are dead!”

Yet another amusing incident.




I love travelling and exploring the world, see things from the lense of my camera.... this is my space in sharing the many exciting places that I have visited as well as some of the wonderful gastronomy experience. I also loved baking while exploring new recipes. From time to time, I will also be sharing unique dishes that I cook for my family as well as sharing some of my baking experience / recipes.
