Picking the stars - Chapter 105
Chapter 105 Extra three (bottom)
Until the ice cream was finished, Pei Ji didn’t think of anything she could give Xiaoxi in return.
Xiao Wei ate the last bite of the crispy skin, looked at Pei Ji, and sighed sadly: “I want to eat another one.”
Pei Ji looked at her, but didn’t respond. She wanted to, they had to see the koala.
As a result, Xiao Wei said, “But we are going to find a koala.”
Pei Ji nodded.
The two children stood up, Xiao Wei took Pei Ji’s hand and continued on the road. It was almost noon, and there were more and more people in the park.
A cute kid wearing a princess dress dragging another kid who is half a head taller than her can easily attract the attention of adults.
But probably because they walked too calmly holding hands, no one actually discovered that these were two missing children.
“Isn’t there yet?” They walked aimlessly in one direction for more than ten minutes, without seeing the shadow of the koala, Xiao Wei was tired, and looked up at Pei Ji, muttering listlessly. “I’m so tired.”
Pei Ji began to think Xiao Wei knew the way, but now she knew she didn’t recognize it, she just took her away.
“But I want to see a koala.” Xiao Wei said again, looking pitifully at Pei Ji, “Are we no way out?”
Pei Ji didn’t speak, but looked around and saw a sign on the side of the road.
There are many small animals painted on that sign, and there are roads one by one. On the far left, there is a line of characters written vertically, and a tourist map of the park.
Pei Ji stood in front of the sign and looked at it for a while. She actually hadn’t learned to read a map, but she quickly understood the map and found out where she and the koala were, and found the closest two places. In the end, she wrote down the entire picture and printed it in her head.
Xiao Wei was waiting for her, and she also observed the picture. However, although the zoo made the picture very suitable for children to read in order to add childishness, it is by no means a five-year-old child can understand.
Xiao Wei just looked at it for a while before he got dizzy.
She waited for Pei Ji anxiously on the side, but in fact did not hold out much hope, because this picture was too difficult in Xiao Wei’s eyes.
As a result, Pei Ji nodded.
Xiao Wei opened his eyes wide and looked at her in awe, without hesitating his admiration: “You are amazing.”
Her eyes are big, watery, black and white, and very beautiful. When she praised Pei Ji, she was full of sincerity and sincerely felt that Pei Ji was so powerful.
Pei Ji was so complimented, he was cramped and faintly happy, and there was even some unreasonable nervousness, so nervous that his palms were sweaty.
But no matter what she thought, her expression was calm.
She walked with Xiao Wei, and in less than ten minutes, she arrived at the Koala House.
Less than the venue, a few floor-to-ceiling windows surrounded a field with a tall and straight tree in the middle. There were only three koalas hanging on the tree, all of which were still sleeping.
Pei Ji was a little disappointed at the beginning, because these koalas are not as cute as Xiaoyou said, and they are not as naive as she has seen in the pictures before.
But after a while, she felt that the koalas were very good, because they hadn’t moved. Quietness is also a kind of order. Pei Ji likes orderly things. There are many people coming and going around.
Many children called koalas and koalas ran over, but after only watching for a while, they left boredly.
Xiao Wei is much more patient than ordinary children. She stared at the koalas for a long time and made sure that they hadn’t moved. Then she habitually asked the people around her: “Are they still not moving?”
“It will move.” Pei Ji replied.
She had never been to the zoo to see koalas, but she had read a popular science book about animals, which mentioned koalas and gave a very detailed description. Pei Ji read it once and wrote them down.
She thinks she gave a very accurate answer. Although koalas are lethargic, they also need to forage, so they don’t stay still.
But as soon as she finished speaking, Xiao Wei showed a shocked expression.
Pei Ji blinked in confusion, not knowing where he was wrong.
“Can you talk?” Xiao Wei asked cautiously.
Pei Ji scratched the corner of his clothes, and a feeling of resistance developed in his heart. This was the topic that Pei Ji was most reluctant to mention.
She has a lot of things she doesn’t understand, and speaking is one of them.
Many people looked at her with weird eyes, said something like “It’s a pity, I can’t speak well”, and then said to her mother, “You are so hard. Bringing such a child must have paid a lot of money. The grades taught so well”.
The mother would sigh and laugh helplessly: “What can I do, after all, it’s her own child.”
Pei Ji had heard these words many times. At first, she didn’t feel much, because she could hardly perceive other people’s emotions, nor could she understand the things hidden in the tone, but after the number of times, she didn’t know why, she Gradually I felt guilty and felt that I was a drag, which made everyone very hard.
But Pei Ji did not deliberately ignore people, nor did he deliberately not speak.
Most of the time, she didn’t know when to speak, and she couldn’t react. For example, when many people burst into laughter, she didn’t know what they were laughing at. When others were angry, she didn’t know why she was angry.
She has tried to change, imitating others when she doesn’t know whether to speak or not.
Once home from school, she learned from her sister’s tone and said, I’m back. Mom was a little surprised, but didn’t say anything. She just glanced at her, then turned away, asked her sister if she was hungry, and put her aside.
At that time, she didn’t have any negative emotions, but felt that this was an unsuccessful attempt.
But after a long time, Pei Ji remembered the look in his mother’s eyes that day, and was suddenly sad. The look was full of disgust, as if she had done something wrong.
Pei Ji was reluctant to try any more, she shrank even further in her shell.
Now that Xiaowei suddenly mentioned the matter of speaking, Pei Ji subconsciously felt resisted.
Turning to the beginning, she went to look at the koala in the glass wall for herself, pretending that she hadn’t heard the question from Xiao. The three koalas are all asleep, and they haven’t moved since they came in. They are quieter than the sculptures.
Xiao Wei waited for a while, but didn’t hear her answer, it was inevitable to be a little embarrassed.
Pei Ji looked at the koala seriously, as if the person beside him didn’t exist.
Xiao Wei felt very uncomfortable. After a while, she tentatively asked: “Then how often do they move?” Pei Ji quickly turned to look at her, almost making Xiao Wei feel that she was waiting for her to speak.
“They sleep during the day and only move for a while at night, in order to find food.” Pei Ji answered her.
The way she spoke was very serious, Xiao Wei thought it was very funny, just now the discomfort disappeared, she gave a long “Oh”.
Seeing that she had no other problems, Pei Ji turned to look at the koala again.
But Xiao Wei’s interest in koalas has shifted to Pei Ji. She thinks this sister is much more interesting than koalas.
“Let’s go see other little animals.” Xiao Wei suggested.
Pei Ji nodded.
They went to see the tiger next door. Some of the little tigers were born not long ago, and they were very cute and fluffy.
Xiaoyou said something cute, but Pei Ji didn’t respond. Xiaoyou thought for a while and asked: “How long does it take for the little tiger to grow into a big tiger?”
Pei Ji said: “The tiger grows very quickly, and it will look like an adult tiger in a year, but if you leave your mother to live on your own, you have to learn to hunt. You can only be considered an independent tiger until two or three years old.”
When she spoke, she spoke very slowly, and she looked at Xiao You seriously, and there were several words in her words that children her age couldn’t understand. But Xiao Wei found it very interesting. She liked her eyes very much, especially the way she looked at her seriously.
She gave another long “Oh”, and then said: “It takes so long, so hard.” Pei Ji did not answer these words.
Xiao Wei felt that she had a little figured out when she could hear her and when she would ignore her.
She asked many more questions, and she found that Pei Ji seemed to know everything. At first, she asked about small animals. Later, she asked everything.
Some kindergarten teachers asked questions that she couldn’t answer. Pei Ji knew that there were other things she was curious about, such as how the car ran, why the birds fly in the sky instead of swimming in the water, and why people eat every day. After three meals, Pei Ji knew all the problems.
Originally, Xiao Wei just wanted to figure out when Pei Ji would speak, but then she forgot the purpose and just looked at her in amazement: “You know everything.”
At this time they were already sitting by the flowerbed on the side of the road.
Xiao Wei is a little bit squeamish, will be tired, will buy ice cream halfway, will lean on Pei Ji and tell me to take a break.
Pei Ji doesn’t like to have physical contact with others, but she doesn’t hate Xiao Wei when she is close to her. She will stretch out her hand to help her to make her lean more comfortably.
“You are so amazing, you must be a little prodigy.” Xiao Wei said again.
As usual, Pei Ji did not respond to words that were meaningless like this, but her chest was hot, and she felt very happy, more happy than ever, because when Xiaoyao praised her, her eyes were bright and she looked at her. , So that Pei Ji thought she was sincere.
“It doesn’t matter if you don’t speak.” Xiao Wei said suddenly, she laughed, her eyes curled beautifully, “I have figured out when you will answer me and when you won’t. I want to listen to you. At that time, just say what you can answer.”
Pei Ji nodded slowly, and the warmth in his chest gradually became hot and spread to the whole body, making her feel very comfortable and making her happy like never before.
Because in the past, others accused her of being too dull, no one told her what she should be like, and no one said, it doesn’t matter if you don’t speak, I will adapt to your way.
Xiao Wei lowered her head to fiddle with her big rabbit again, and took out a biscuit from the rabbit. She looked for the second one, and opened the package and broke the biscuit in half.
Biscuit crumbs were everywhere, and the sizes of the two biscuits were different. Xiao Wei compared it and handed the larger one to Pei Ji.
Pei Ji looked at the big and small gaps in the biscuit and didn’t accept it.
Xiao Wei thought she was shy, so she brought cookies to her mouth and encouraged: “This is delicious.”
Pei Ji took it hesitantly.
Xiao Wei took a bite of his share.
Pei Ji also took a bite of his own, the strawberry-flavored sandwich, sweet, and really delicious.
She looked at Xiao Wei, Xiao Wei’s cheeks were bulging like a little squirrel, and her eyes narrowed into crescent crescents, as she did when she first ate ice cream.
Pei Ji smiled suddenly.
When Xiao Wei saw it, Pei Ji smiled beautifully. The corners of his mouth were upturned a little, and his eyes were like a clear blue lake. There were ripples and a clean smile.
It was only very short-lived, and Pei Ji soon returned to his usual appearance.
Xiao Wei is too young and does not have enough vocabulary to describe her heart. She just thinks that Pei Ji is very funny. Although she doesn’t speak much and doesn’t laugh too much, Xiao Wei doesn’t find it difficult to get along with her at all, and even thinks Pei Ji is a very special person.
She likes her very much.
After eating the biscuits, there is still sugar. The big rabbit is like a treasure chest, filled with many things.
Xiao Wei took out a lot of sugar and stuffed it into Pei Ji’s hand: “This sugar is also delicious, I’ll give it to you.”
Pei Ji accepted it.
“Xiao You!” An adult’s voice came from a distance.
A man and a woman strode over.
Xiao Wei looked up, smiled and jumped up and ran over: “Mom and Dad!”
She threw herself into Xia Qing’s arms, and Xia Qing picked her up.
“Why did you come here? Mom has been looking for you for a long time.” Xia Qing asked, her expression was obviously very anxious, but when she picked up her daughter and found that she was fine, her mood eased a lot, and she even smiled.
“I met a good friend.” Xiaoyou said while looking at Pei Ji. Pei Ji also stood up.
Xiao Wei worried that Pei Ji would be afraid, she broke free from her mother’s arms, ran to Pei Ji’s side, holding her hand: “She is also lost, let’s help her find her mother.”
“You are really…” Song Jueming shook his head, but there was nothing to prepare for him, so he took the two children to find Pei Ji’s parents.
Pei Ji followed them. Xia Qing and Song Jueming realized that this child seemed a little special. After being different from ordinary children, they stopped trying to communicate with her and let her stay with Xiao Er.
They soon found Pei Ji’s parents at the gate of the zoo, and they took another child with them.
I wasn’t very happy to see Pei Ji, but he thanked Song Jueming and Xia Qing very courteously, and praised Xiaoyou for her cuteness.
The two families were separated, Song Jueming led Song Er, Xia Qing looked at their backs, and said dissatisfiedly: “What’s the matter with the parents? The child was lost and found it without comfort and comfort. He didn’t even have a straight eye.”
The family walked in the other direction. The parents led the other child to the front, Pei Ji fell behind, two or three meters away, the parents never looked back, as if there was a well-defined wall between them. , The front is a family, and the children at the back are alone and unable to blend in.
“We are raising children from other people’s families…” Song Jueming was also very dissatisfied, but there was nothing he could do. Before he could finish his words, Xiao Wei broke away from his hand and ran over.
“and many more!”
Pei Ji turned his head and saw Xiao Wei running back towards her, a little light appeared in her calm eyes, stopped and watched Xiao Wei run closer.
Xiao Wei hugged her hard: “I won’t forget you, and you must remember me.”
Pei Ji was a little uncomfortable being hugged so hard, she tentatively raised her hand and hugged Xiao Wei, only to realize that the hug felt good. She nodded and said slowly: “My name is Pei Ji.”
Xiao Wei remembered the name and kissed Pei Ji’s face: “You must not forget me.”
Pei Ji did not forget Xiao Wei. She remembered that day very firmly. It was her happiest day. She was so happy that she had overdrawn the joy of her long years. After a long time, she was not so happy. .
I haven’t eaten such sweet ice cream again, and no one gave her the larger portion when breaking a biscuit in half.
In many unhappy times, when being treated unfairly, and when there is nothing he can do, Pei Ji will think of Xiaoyou.
But she just missed her, she had no other thoughts.
Until one time, my sister put the candy she gave her back to her hand, and hurriedly said again and vaguely: “Wait for me to grow up…”
Pei Ji was like a Daihu empowerment, and suddenly had a direction.
When she grows up, she will go to Xiaoyou.
Why did you find her? Pei Ji didn’t think about it, she just firmly thought that she must be found.
That encounter was like a little faint fluorescent light, not very bright, but because Pei Ji’s world was too dark, that little light was extremely precious, allowing Pei Ji to learn to expect and have a direction to work hard. .
