By the time he got home, it was already 2 in the afternoon. When his mother came back from the fields, Chen Tian ran over to take the hoe from her mother and said lightly, "Mom, I'm sorry, I didn't pass the exam." Before he could finish his sentence, tears began to roll down his cheeks again. The mother did not expect the son to cry in her memory of the son for ten years did not shed tears. His son was someone who feared nothing in the world. However, he cried because he didn't get into university. His mother was very happy, it seemed that his son had really grown up.

His mother wiped away the tears on his face with her thin hands and said caringly, "Son, it's alright if you don't pass the exam. You can take the exam again next year. Your father and I will support you." Chen Tian looked at his mother's skinny hands and could not help but feel pain in his heart. "Mom, I'm fine. I'm just a little tired." The mother sighed and said, "If you are tired, go to sleep. When the food is ready, I will call you." Chen Tian walked into the room and closed the door.

Today, he had been too shocked by Chen Tianzhen. Never in his wildest dreams did he imagine that his girlfriend of two years, whom he had always loved, would actually never like him. In her eyes, she was nothing but a scammer who only knew how to deceive the feelings of others. Was he really a liar? For the past two years, he had prepared breakfast for her every day. When she was unhappy, he would make her laugh and find a way to make her happy. He would accompany her for a walk and shopping. What he had done for her was free and selfless. He had never thought of asking her to pay him back, but now, he realized that he was just a liar in her heart. The contrast between the two events was just too great, and the development of the situation was just too interesting. Hmph, so it turns out that after spending two years on someone else's wife, everything ended up in vain.

Chen Tianzhen's heart was already dead. Although the sun was blazing hot on the earth, he didn't feel any heat at all. Instead, he felt a hint of cold. It wasn't that he didn't accept reality, but that reality was unacceptable to him. Since he failed his university entrance examinations, his girlfriend didn't want him anymore. His parents didn't have the ability, and his family wasn't well off either. He had nothing better to do. It seemed that the world had abandoned him. It was better to die than to live like this.

"Oh, really, are you still sleeping?" Your mother has finished cooking. Get up and eat. " Father's voice came from outside the door.

Chen Tian hurriedly wiped away her tears. "I understand, Dad. I will come out right away." There weren't many dishes on the table, only three plates. It was very light, without any meat. Even so, the taste was delicious, and his mother's dishes were Chen Tian's favorite. " "Dad, I want to go out for a walk after dinner." Chen Tian suddenly said. "Well," my father said soothingly, "you didn't get into college, so you're in a bad mood. It's good to go out for a walk and relax." "But don't worry, if you can't do it this year, you can take the exam next year."

"Don't worry, Dad, Mom, I'm fine." After dinner, Chen Tian headed for the mountains.

Chen Tian had nowhere to go, the only place he could think of was the Little Yuan Mountain ten kilometers away from home. The mountain was not very high, but it could still be considered as clear and beautiful, with a beautiful scenery. He had once been to Little Yuan Mountain ten years ago, when he was only eight years old and lost in the mountains. It was later sent home by a long-haired old grandpa. Such a big mountain, only long hair old grandpa lives alone, he must be very lonely, must be very lonely. Chen Tian decided to go see him.

When Chen Tian arrived at the Little Yuan Mountain, it was already dark. Luckily, with the help of the moonlight, he could see the path to the top of the mountain. Arriving at the mountain, Chen Tian saw the little house that he had seen ten years ago. The little house did not change at all, it was still the same as it was ten years ago. A tungsten oil lamp was lit in the room. It was very dim. Chen Tian walked forward and knocked on the door. The door opened and the one who opened it was the long-haired old man from ten years ago. Chen Tian felt a myriad of emotions surge up within his heart, as if there were thousands of things he wanted to say to the long-haired old man. However, he didn't know what to say. "Grandpa Long eyed Chen Tian carefully. After a while, he asked," "Who, who are you?" "Chen Tian was stunned for a moment by his long-haired grandfather, and then he remembered that he had been separated by ten years. At that time, he was still a little kid, but now, he had grown into a twenty year old young man. Of course, his long-haired grandfather did not recognize him." "Longhaired Grandpa, ten years ago, you were the one who sent me home when I lost my way in the mountains." Chen Tian said. The long-haired grandpa thought for a while before replying, "Oh, I remember now. So you're that little kid." Chen Tian smiled and nodded.

"Kid, come in and sit down. Don't stand outside." "Grandpa Long brought Chen Tian into the room," "It's been ten years, but you can still think of me, this old ghost. I feel so gratified." "It's nothing. I was just thinking about how big of a mountain it is for you to live in. I probably came back lonely, so I came to visit you." The long-haired grandpa sat across from Chen Tianzhen and looked at him deeply. "Kid, you must be very lonely. Otherwise, you wouldn't have thought of me, right?" Chen Tian's body shuddered, he did not expect his long-haired grandfather to see through his worries. Chen Tian sighed and decided to tell his long-haired grandfather about his experiences.

"Long-haired grandpa, you don't know, but in the eyes of others, I'm nothing more than a liar who can deceive the feelings of others." My grades were not good, they were very bad, I only got 230 marks, and I didn't even get into the worst school. My parents were both very poor, and my old cotton clothes were my best clothes. I was looked down upon wherever I went. My girlfriend doesn't want me anymore. For the second time every day, I prepare breakfast for her. If she wasn't happy, I would take a walk with her, but she never loved me. "It seems that everyone has abandoned me and I want to die. Tell me, what's the difference between living to this extent and dying?"

"No difference." "Kid, I'm very sympathetic to what happened to you, so I'll tell you a story, too." A hundred years ago, the Qing government encircled and annihilated the Boxers. He put his seven-year-old son in the latrine. He said, "Son, no matter what happens, don't come out. It stinks, but it can keep you alive." The boy looked at his father and nodded. Two days later, he emerged from the latrine. He asked for a meal, let the oxen go, and became a shop assistant. Wherever he went, he would be bullied by others and lead a life worse than pigs and dogs. Later on, he went to Mount Wudang and trained for thirty years in one go. He went down the mountain when he learned martial arts to purify the fire. At that time, there was only hatred in his heart, the teachings of his master had long been thrown to the back of his mind. As long as he couldn't bear to see things happen, he had to take care of them, and if he couldn't like them, he would kill them, no matter who they were, Chinese or Japanese. Later on, his master found him and asked him what he wanted to do and what his purpose was. Learn martial arts just to kill people? He woke up, but it was too late. He had killed too many people, and his conscience would never be at peace. He wanted to die, but he did not die because he felt that there was no difference between dying and living. Since there was no difference, why did he have to die while living? "Later on, he went up the mountain to live in seclusion for nearly a hundred years. He would not go down the mountain unless it was something important."

Chen Tian asked, "Long-haired Grandpa, is that you?"

Grandpa Long nodded and smiled. "You already know. That person is me." "Then who do you think is more unfortunate, and who is more miserable, between you and me?" Chen Tian lowered his head and did not speak.

"Everyone has abandoned you, but your parents have not abandoned you. Even if your parents have abandoned you, then you can't abandon yourself." "Body and skin, parents, if you give up the right to live because of such a small setback, then you are unfilial."

Chen Tian was extremely ashamed of her long-haired grandfather's words. "Thank you for your guidance, I know what to do now." Previously, my willpower was not strong enough. My parents are just Nakata's, my family is poor, barely able to solve the problem of eating and warming up. I borrowed all the money from school. In the past, I always felt that my parents were incompetent, and that I didn't have what other children had. I hate, I hate why I wasn't born in a good family. But now I know that I am very happy. Although my parents have no ability, they did their best to take care of me. Although they didn't give me much, it was all they had. "

Hearing Chen Tian's words, the long-haired grandpa nodded his head in satisfaction and said, "It's best if you understand." Chen Tian was very grateful for his long-haired grandfather's teachings.
