浪漫

Romantic

 

一个小伙子暗恋着一个女孩。女孩是他的同事,他们在一个办公室里工作。

A young man fell in love with a girl in his office secretly.

小伙子性格内向,不善言辞,他不知道如何向女孩子表达他的爱慕之意。写情书罢,小伙子是学理工的,一直搞技术工作,满脑子的图形,就是没有一句有文采的话。小城也没有鲜花店,电影电视上常见的送花那一套也无从说起。至于直截了当地告诉女孩子说“我爱你”,小伙子就更没有那胆量了。

However, he did not know how to express his affection for her since he was neither an extrovert nor a talker. Because of his educational background in science and engineering, the young man, with his figures-filled brain that shaped by his long-time technical work, could not come up with any flowery language to write a love letter. Besides, he had no access to any flower shop in such a small town, let alone bought her flowers like what they do on screen. He also did not have the guts to say ‘I love you’ to her out loud.

这样的恋情应该说是没有什么希望了。事实上一年后他们却结了婚。有人向小伙子讨教,他说:“我每天上班第一件事就是帮她檫桌子,然后为她泡上一杯她喜欢喝的绿茶。她的胃不好,我经常备些胃药放在她的桌上。一开始她不知道是我做的这些事情,时间长了就知道了。就这么简单。”

It seemed that his love would go nowhere. In fact, he married her the year after. When asked for advice, he said, “Every day, as soon as I came to the office, I wiped her desk and made her a cup of her favorite green tea. Knowing that she often had an upset stomach, I also prepared some stomach medicine and put them on her desk. At the beginning, she had no idea who had done those things for her. As time passed by, she found out that it was me. That’s it.”

忍不住叫人想到“浪漫”一词。写情书是一种浪漫,送99朵玫瑰是一种浪漫。我不知道,檫桌子泡茶送药是否也是一种浪漫。浪漫是没有定式的,或许那些实实在在地呵护和关爱才是真正的浪漫,它是生命之火所点燃的最绚烂的花朵。

Hearing this story, people could not help thinking of the word “romantic”. It can be a love letter or ninety nine roses. I cannot tell whether it can be simply wiping one desk, making a cup of tea or delivering medicine. Romantic has no definitive form. Real romantic, the most gorgeous flower enlightened by the fire of life, might be those simple but true care, love, and concern.
