Why does it rain so much?
Monday the eleventh-O-two-two-O-O-two
Why does it rain so much, the grey sky and the gust of cold wet wind that hauling outside doesn’t help me to get though this Monday morning at all. Sitting in this empty library, with a book of mine staring at me. I sat there for a while waited for my brain to warm up and get used to the environment but still..I didn’t know which page to start on.. so I kept flipping the book back and fore.
A man with a green jumper and denim walked in, put up his thin smile and said hi, I nodded and replied with the same.
He sat down, open his laptop and put on his ear phone, silence grew so I took that as a beginning signal -to read.
After I gave a few nodding to the book, I decided to give myself a break – I looked out of the windows behind me. It was still raining. The sky was still as gray as ashes, I couldn’t help but wonder why does it rain so much! The cloud must be really sad today. .. but why is it sad? Because of the wind was saying goodbye? Or was it feeling sorry for itself ? Shouldn’t be.. anyway, I felt some light enviousness growing.. The cloud can cry but why can’t men? A friend of mine, Lipeng said to me over the phone last night that it is ok for girl to cry, it is good too. “A way of releasing stress” she said, how about for guy? “We stress too!” I asked. But her suggestion to go down to a local pub and pick a fight instead didn’t appeal to me that much..
A girl walked in to the room, I know her.. so off we went- the same greeting, the same one that you and me have been practised and conditioned to say it all our life, how original!
She sat down, get her book out, and once again the silence grew. Just like a transparent barrier that separate us.
Shit.. I have been thinking too much again and yeah, as Li peng said that the “thinking should be left for girls not guys” (hmm..)
I placed myself facing the book ready to tackle it once again, as I about to open the book, I turned my head, looking behind me.. it was still raining.. Why does it rain so much?
