Red

小紅好怪,她感受不到任何感受,可又得了一種不能停止哭泣的病。


醫生說,你要去找一場大雨,能淹沒所有的你的淚水的下不停的雨。等到你分不清哪裡是眼淚哪裡是雨滴的時候,病就該好了。雨停了,淚也就流走了。


小紅收拾了書包,告別了想像中的父母。

她走過了朋友的生日派對,走過了同學的畢業典禮,走過了鄰居女孩的婚禮,

······

走了多久,淚就流了多久。


好多年好多年,雨還是沒有來,小紅也最終看不見了。

看不見了,所以淚早就幹了。


可是她還在走,還在尋找。

那場雨到底在哪裡?


不小心,小紅闖進了一片沙漠。

太陽曬裂了她的脊背,鷹叼走了她的眼珠,蛇吞噬了她的胳膊,老鼠啃噬了她的腳趾。

血快流幹的時候,她終於倒下了。倚靠著一棵巨大的仙人掌,想到再也找不到那場雨了,這裡就是終點了,小紅終於第一次有了感覺,她有點“難過”。


仙人掌大大的臂彎環繞著小紅,見到了她的一生,他第一次為誰哭泣了。

幾滴雨落在小紅的臉頰,又幾滴,又幾滴——她終於還是找到了,她感到“開心”,眼睛裡卻流出血來。

看著小紅慢慢死去,仙人掌止不住淚水,漸漸地,沙漠變成了一片海洋。淹沒了小紅,淹沒了仙人掌自己,淹沒了一切過往。


一片海洋。






Red is a strange girl, she can't feel anything, but she has a disease that she won’t stop crying.


The doctor said, "You have to find a heavy rain that will drown all your tears. When you can't diffrentiate the tears and raindrops, you will be cured. When the rain stops, your tears will go away.”


Red packed her school bag and said goodbye to her imaginary parents.

She walked past her friend's birthday party, her classmates’ graduation ceremony, her neighbours’ daughter’s wedding.

...

The tears flowed as long as she walked.


But she was still walking, still searching.

Where is it? The rain, the heavy rain, the medicine.


Red walked into a desert.

The sun burnt off her back skin, the eagle took her eyes, the snake devoured her arms and the rats gnawed off her toes.

When her blood was almost drained, Red finally collapsed. Leaning against a giant cactus, thinking that she would never find the rain, that this was the end of the line, Red finally felt for the first time that she was a little 'sad'.


The cactus wrapped its big arms around Red, he was able to glimpse into Red’s journey, then for the first time in his life, he wept, for her.

A few drops of rain fell on Red's cheeks, and a few more, and a few more - here it is, she’s finally found it, she felt "happy"--blood came out from her eyes.

As he watched Red die away, the cactus could not stop his tears. Red had died, dried, and turned into sands--cactus cried. Finally, the desert turned into an ocean. It drowned Red, it drowned the cactus itself, and it drowned all of our past, present, and future.


Water.
