Epilogue 3.9: Special Accidental Episode

Zhong Lian Chen is an impatient person. The more the other party kept silence, the more anxious she become. She then said: “Cheng Shao Rong, we have grown up. No longer a child. We can be responsible for our own actions.”

Still there is no sound but she heard the other party gasp. Hey, seems like she did not express herself clear. She added: “I mean, I am now an adult. So I can take responsible for my own action. You do not need to be responsible.”

Cheng Shao Rong gently cough but did not make any sound. But the cough is very muddy. It seems that he is uncomfortable.

This really puzzled her. If he is standing in front of her, she would definitely go and smack him.

Unfortunately, he is thousands of miles away from her. It seems very fragile and low, so she had to have patience. She put in effort to bring out her motherly emotions: “Cheng Shao Rong, you know, uh. Moral and material contrast. Only substances basic only. The spirit is the most powerful. That is the general reason why we humans are different from animals. Because our spiritual strength are beyond theirs….” Her philosophy class scores are not high. So she is making herself dizzy first.

Here, Cheng Shao Rong finally spoke up: “What exactly are you trying to express here?”

“I mean. As long as our mind is pure, even….. even in physically……. No, I mean material things. Not so pure, it is excusable. If you fall into the mud, a dip into dirty water, coming out of the bath, you are still you. Nothing has changed.”

Hey, Cheng Shao Rong this guy may not talk much but his understanding has always been superior. He certainly understood what she meant to tell him. Although he derailed physically, but as long as the spirit of derailment…. He is still am highly qualified to return back to Jiang Wei’s side.

As a result, Cheng Shao Rong is even more puzzled with still no movement. Damn. She really want to flatten people.

Zhong Lian Chen thought for a few seconds and quickly come up with new arguments. She felt that if she had to deal with this daily, she can become education experts.

“Cheng Shao Rong, there have been evolution of times. A long time ago, men seeing women’s face is a crime. Have to marry her. Later, touching the hand is considered taking away the virginity. Our country in the ancient time, couples do not even kiss easily. But in the western social culture, kissing is the most basis touch.” She said haltingly for a while before saying: “Kissing is like shaking hand. Shaking hands is like seeing the face. So that men and women, in fact, in the final analysis, kissing and shaking hands is about the same thing. So what happen between us, is similar just different parts only. We really have taken this too seriously. It is so funny…. Ha ha ha ha ha ha…”

Silence ah silence. The atmosphere is so awkward.

Zhong Lian Chen is so depressed to the extend she wanted to cut the phone line and then pretending that she had drop the phone. As she wanted to do that, Cheng Shao Rong finally said something. The most words he had said today:

“Zhong Lian Chen, are you really a woman?”

Damn. She dug her heart out to try to comfort and enlighten him. And he even laughed and taunt at her. X your mother!

Zhong Lian Chen bitterly cursed in her heart, the curse that she never even dared to say out loud.

Then she thought. Mother Chen is a good mother and aunt. Why she scolded the innocent party? Corrections!

So Zhong Lian Chen curse again in her heart:

Damn. X you this Cheng Shao Rong bastard!

You’re the one wt extra emotional baggage carrying around with your equally stupid ex. The accidental ( ? ) ONS must be your redemption.
