Friendship hanging on the key ring

During the summer vacation, former good friend wangyunzi returned from London. We made an appointment to meet at the cafe on the 5th floor of jinshitang, Xinyi Road.

It was a hot summer afternoon. I took my daughter by the hand and walked on the crowded street. It seemed that the whole city was going to burn. My daughter's little hands were often loosened by the collision of pedestrians walking in the opposite direction. However, they would come forward again soon. We chatted intermittently amid the cries of businessmen and the bargaining of pedestrians.

My daughter asked me who I was going to meet. I said, "it was my mother's colleague who stayed in the school as a teaching assistant after graduating from college. She came back from far away England."

The daughter looked at her head and asked innocently, "are all the people who came back from far away offering to meet and invite them to coffee?"

"That's not sure! My mother had the best relationship with her at that time. When we were teaching assistants, she took good care of my mother."

The daughter continued with perseverance: "do adults still need to be taken care of? How does she take care of you? Is it like caihechun taking care of me? Teach you to do your homework?"

Caihechun is her classmate. Hearing this, I couldn't help laughing: "it's about the same! No matter how old you are, you still need to be taken care of by others! Right? Like grandpa is ill, you also need us to take care of him! Right?"

"Were you ill? At that time?"

"I didn't get sick. However, for a time that year, my mother was in a bad mood. She thought she was annoying and unpopular. Just a few days before Christmas that year, I found Aunt Wang secretly put a card made by herself on my desk. It said: 'I don't know how to describe how much I like you. I wish you a happy holiday.' my mother was very moved. The card changed my mother's bad mood at that time 。 More importantly, it gave me a lot of encouragement and made me feel less annoying! " The daughter listened, thinking, and bowed her head.

Yunzi and I met and talked happily about the past and asked each other about the current situation. My daughter listened quietly. Unlike the usual chattering, we almost forgot her existence. After a while, my daughter asked to go to the stationery department on the third floor.

Ten minutes later, my daughter came upstairs, flushed and panting, and whispered to me, "can you lend me a hundred yuan first? I want to buy something, and I'll take it back from the money can."

We were having a good talk. We didn't have time to think about it. Knowing that she wouldn't spend money indiscriminately, we gave her money. Before long, she came up again. In front of his friend, he stood at attention respectfully, put a box of beautifully wrapped gifts in his hands, and said solemnly, "Aunt Wang, here is a small gift for you. You come from so far away."

Yun Zi and I were shocked at the same time. Yun Zi was even more at a loss and said, "how can I accept your gift! I'm sorry I didn't bring you a gift when I came back from England. Besides, I'm an adult and you're a child..."

The daughter closed her heels very seriously and said with infinite affection, "my mother says you are her best friend. Thank you for taking care of my mother so much."

A stream of heat rushed to my head. My throat suddenly choked. My eyes were hot and wet. I was helpless. I never thought my daughter would do this. Yun Zi's eyes also reddened sharply, her lips trembled slightly, but she couldn't say a word. She just hugged her daughter tightly and murmured, "thank you! Thank you..."

This time it was her turn to feel embarrassed. She leaned over Yunzi's shoulder and embarrassed to remind her: "do you want to see what gift you get?" Yunzi opens the gift and hangs a key ring of a plush white rabbit.

The daughter said in an old-fashioned way, "people who can take care of people must be very gentle. Therefore, I chose the little white rabbit. Do you like it?"

Yun Zi said: "of course I do. What a lovely gift. When I go back to England, I hang all the keys. Every time I open a door, I miss you."

The daughter was so happy that she jumped downstairs, leaving two women in the room with the smell of coffee to receive more mellow friendship than coffee.
