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 boy had a crush on a girl, who was his colleague and worked in the same office.


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,就没有一句文采的话。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。至于直接了当地告诉女孩子说“我爱你”,小伙子就更没有那个胆量了。

The boy was not good with words and too shy to express his love to the girl as well. Then you may say why not write a letter full of love to her, while the truth was that he worked on techniques after the study of science and engineering, resulting in his head filled with graphs but romantic and literary words. In addition, without flower shops in town, it was also hard to put on a TV show of sending-flowers-to-lover. Regarding to the idea of telling her his love directly, he didn’t have the courage.


这样的恋情应该说是没什么希望了的。事实上,他们一年之后却结婚了。有人向小伙子讨教,他说:“我每天上班第一件事就是帮她擦桌子,然后为她泡上一杯她喜欢的绿茶。她的胃不好,我经常备这些胃药放在她的桌子上。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。”

In theory, such kind of relationship was hopeless. But as a matter of fact, they got married in a year. Surprised by the result, someone asked him for the reasons. He explained, “ The first thing I do at work is to help her to clean the table and then make a cup of green tea that she likes. And I also often give some stomach medicine to help to ease her stomachache. Of course, at the very beginning, she has no idea that I have done so much things just for her, but as time went by, she did. It is that simple.


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,擦桌子泡茶是否也是一种浪漫。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。
I can not help thinking of the word “ romance”. Writing a love letter is romantic as well as sending ninety nine roses to the lovers. I’m not sure whether cleaning tables, making a cup of tea and giving the medicine belong to the same catalogue. But I know there is no standard rules of romance. Perhaps, the real romance is the substantial care and love, the most splendid flower lit by the life fire.
