Accompanying Her in the Rain
On the Valentine’s Day, my brother finally had the chance to date a girl. Lack of experience, he consulted me sincerely about what he should do. I arranged a “schedule” for him: First, bringing enough money and meeting at a cafe near the cinema. Then, after the meal , you may stroll the path in the Riverbank Park enjoying your way to the film. What is more, it would be drizzling tonight. Just imagine how romantic it could be. After the movie, you send her home with reluctance....
“With the help of you, things will never go wrong.” My brother was so excited that he could not wait to grab an umbrella out . It seemed that he would not go home until 12:00 p. m., I thought. However, he came back at only half past eight, soaking wet and in a low spirit.
I asked: “What’s wrong, boy? Your ‘schedule’ ended ahead of time? ”
My brother sighed: “You can find a needle in the deep ocean, however, you can never figure out what a woman is thinking about.”
I asked him what happened, my brother sighed again: “When we were drinking coffee and eating cakes, she seemed well, and we had a good time, but when we walked in the park, things went wrong unexpectedly.” “What happened?” I was concerned. My brother replied, toweling his hair: “After we walked out of the cafe, we held our umbrellas respectively. Is there anything wrong? However, as we walked suddenly she stopped. She took down her umbrella and threw it into the river. It happened so fast that I was all at sea.
She shouted at me: ‘How could you just let me caught in the rain alone?’ I went blank for a moment then I quickly took down my umbrella and threw it into the river. Wasn’t I accompanying her in the rain? However she looked at me, frowning, then ran away. I called her many times, but she never answered the phone, so I had to go home alone earlier than we had planned.”
