An unexpected overnight.

 

 

I was in the middle of a movie when the messenger box popped out. The time was around two to three in the midnight, I can’t remember exactly. It was Jingjing, who asked me whether I could help her with a survey of her final project.

It later became a hybrid of a nice conversation with her and the rest of the movie. After everything, it was already five a.m. When I was about to sleep after shutting down the machine, the image outside somehow amazed me: the color of the sky has quietly whitened.

Unknown birds were tweeting.

This must be the gentlest overnight I’ve ever made, yet it doesn’t affect the innocence of a dawn.

It may be the same daybreak that one encounters in consciousness or after waking up from a sound sleep. Just two utterly different realizations.

Without any guiltiness I immersed myself in the euphoria by taking photos aimlessly with my dusted Canon. I realized it was foolish when I was doing all these. It was also the foolishness that further intensified my euphoria.

Now I’m losing idea about whether or not to take a poor-quality nap before the breakfast at 10:30.

 

两三点的时候,我正在看一部电影。一个msn对话框突然跳出来,是处女座的jingjing叫我帮她做一个survey.

于是就在做survey,间歇地和她聊天,间歇地看完下半部电影中,到了5点。关了电脑。正要关灯睡去,发现窗外已经泛了白。不知怎的,那画面突然惊艳了我。

从来没有通过这么轻松的宵。但这并不妨碍黎明的无邪。

在清醒中遇见的清晨,和从沉睡中醒来看到的清晨,是太不相同的。
