(Aren’t you Chinese? Why don’t you know Chinese?)
Boy, have I been asking myself the same question for years now… It’s really such a shame I’ve forgotten how to speak Chinese. It’s such a disappointment I don’t know how to talk to you…
The fact you still thought of me two days after we met—when I haven’t said a word to you (directly), and the only word you heard me say, was when I reiterated your “哥哥”—… My cheeks felt hot for such a long time afterwards, despite the fact it was cold. I think if I put my hand against your face, you would have jumped.
I’m curious to learn more about you… but right now I’m literally not able to. I’ve never had this kind of problem before, where you want to get to know someone, and you can’t. Not because he won’t let you, but because your stubborn brain cannot remember the words you so frequently used to use as a child. Not even a “good morning,” “sorry for bothering you”,"what do you study/do for a living?" or "sorry I hung up on you!" lol. (I’ve seriously been considering saying the last one, but if I did, what would I say if he asked me why. I can’t even explain that!
