Race

Every morning, a gazelle wakes up.
It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed.
Every morning, a lion wakes up.
It knows it must outrun the slowest gazelle or it will starve to death.
It doesn't matter whether you are a lion or a gazelle,
When the sun rises, you'd better start running.


Tomorrow, let's have a race. If I don't win, next time, in the next life, let's have a rematch. Just you wait, and one day I will win.

雾中的老师

又是一个平常的日子。燕子和虎鹰在县城上的旅店已经住了两周了。在那些日子里,虎鹰常常一个人出去工作,而燕子就在街上闲逛。如往常,燕子又在街上看店铺,想着:在虎姐姐身边能学到不少新东西。与此同时,虎鹰在县城边缘打发一些流氓,想着:得给燕子找个老师。
夜悄悄地走来,一层厚厚的雾也同时降临。燕子正看着这大雾,心里想着自己是否还能找到回旅店的路。不只是巧合还是缘,一群流氓相的少年挡在燕子的路上。
“小朋友,迷路了?要哥哥带你回家吗?”少年轻蔑的对着她笑了笑。
感到危机的燕子马上想到前几天贵族先生送给她的匕首,便把他拿了出来对准前方的少年。那把匕首没有贵族先生的那一把那么华丽,但是上面的五颗红宝石跟燕子的肤色很配。少年看到那匕首,顿时惊讶得瞪大了眼睛。这时,不知何时何处冒出来的一个陌生人说道:“后辈请留步。”陌生人挡在燕子和少年中间。燕子看着那个背影似乎有了点安全感,放下了匕首。
“你们不但以多欺少,还欺负那么小的女孩,亏你们做得出。”
少年不服气,从同伴那儿抽出一把刀就像陌生人刺去。燕子受惊,往后退了几步。在雾中,她只看到几个人混战一番。她知道,若不是陌生人相助,自己很难活过那一关。
“燕子!”一声焦急的叫喊传到燕子的耳边。
这时,那个陌生人对燕子说:“不是所有事情都可以用武力解决的。再说,看得出来你是第一次拿武器……”还没说完,虎鹰就跑到了。
“燕子,你没事吧?”
“你怎么能天暗了还让一个小孩单独出来?”
“啊!谢谢叔叔!”燕子对着人影喊道。
“叔叔?应该是哥哥吧。”
雾有点散开了,那位哥哥也走近了点。一个眉清目秀的帅哥出现在眼前。一眼看出帅哥出众的武力和帮助人的热情,虎鹰请求他做燕子的老师,而他一口答应了。
“雾中缘,师生情呀!”帅哥叹道,“我是亚杰。”
“我是虎鹰,这是燕子。请多多指点。”

unpleasant car tour

There was this composition title that reminded me of something rather unpleasant.
The composition title was 'an unpleasant trip by car, ship or plane'. As a matter of fact, I did have one, recently.
Once, I was on a car to go to Wutai mountains with my family. On the road, we faced fog and heavy rain. Also, We saw several car accidents. Not one, several. I mean it was like...three...five...six. About six of them. Not quite a nice day to begin with.
Not long after that, I went to the tomb of my grandparents.
Death, is the word that comes most into my mind right now. I can't imagine how I didn't realize it before. I can't describe the feeling of watching so many things related to death in so short period of time. No, not horror movies. Those are not death related things, they are only pieces of art. But that trip was for real. Actually, on the road to the tomb, there was heavy rain. Even heavier than the time when we went to the mountains. The water was poured from the sky, and I mean it. I couldn't see anything from the car window, just running water. I was horrible. When the rain finally stopped, another series of car accidents were there waiting for me to see.
I felt like there was a theatre of death, but the play was one in which one would actually die.
Chilling...and creepy.

认错

自从虎鹰把燕子接出箫汕村后,她们就不停地奔波。箫汕村外方圆一千里都是类似的小村庄。来来往往的人,除了一些送信件的,很少见到。也正是因为如此,所以带着燕子的虎鹰才选择不停的赶路,一直到了一个比较热闹的县城。
“虎姐姐,这里的人好多,东西也好多!”
看着兴高采烈的燕子,虎鹰微微一笑。她们来到一个旅店住下。在路上的日子里,燕子没吃什么好的,休息的也不多,一道客房就一头栽下,呼呼大睡。虎鹰见状就叫侍人准备一桌美食让燕子醒来后品尝。安排好一切后,虎鹰拿着一袋包子出去散步了。
燕子一觉醒来发现眼前有一桌天鲜美食,大包一顿后,推开客房的门,大胆的上街游玩。在旅店附近,她发现了一位富贵人士,身上带着一把华丽的匕首。宝石和金线闪闪发光,牵住了燕子的眼神。不知不觉,燕子偷偷摸摸得跟着他来到了一个非常拥挤的地方。突然,一个念头晃过燕子的脑子。于是,她慢慢的靠近那位先生,磨到匕首后在远离了一步。就在她的脸被一个陌生人挡住的时候,她把匕首拿了下来。接着,就是一阵狂奔。
到了旅店,她把匕首藏在衣服里进了客房。客房里,虎鹰正躺着等她。
“没想到小燕子胆子真大,”听到这句话,燕子吓了一大跳,以为虎鹰知道了她干的事。但是,话的下部分使她送了口气。“刚来一个陌生地方就敢乱窜。”
不过,燕子轻松的时间也不长。当她刚走一步时,虎鹰就皱起眉头看着这个自己新领的小妹妹,说道:“燕子,你出去干什么了?把衣服里的匕首拿出来。”燕子想:哇!虎姐姐好英明,于是,乖乖地把匕首交了出来。看到装饰如此绚华的匕首,虎鹰的眉头又紧了紧。他耐心的对燕子说:“燕子,这是贵族匕首。你是偷来的吧。”燕子点了点头,不敢和那位酷姐姐对视。“以后,不管是什么,只要是别人的就不能随便拿,知道了吗?”虎鹰叮嘱道。燕子又点了点头。
没费多长时间,姐妹俩在一家饭店找到了匕首的主人。
“叔叔,我看着匕首好看就拿了。对不起,我错了。”燕子正视着那个贵族道了歉。
“好孩子,连道歉都能正视对方。下次见面,送你一把匕首。”
贵族对虎鹰笑了一笑:“后会有期。”
虎鹰回笑,在点了点头。
