I fixed my eyes on the man in front of me, the man I had not seen for a long time. He had lost some weight, and that made his cheekbones seem even more prominent. His thin lips were pursed, and his mesmerizing eyes were deep and dark, as though the entire night sky could fit into it, so dark that I could sink into the bottomless darkness.
Tang Xin tried to make an excuse, but she knew very well that her brother Tang Xiao would take my side. Eventually, she compromised and lowered her heard, as sheuttered unwillingly, “Sorry!”
I answered softly, “It’s fine.”
Then she ran away as if she had been wronged.
I was perplexed. However, when I recalled how she was even meaner to me before, I forgave her.
