Zhuzi, a young intellectual, lives in Hangzhou, called heaven, because of the beautiful scenery. He, together with his fiancee Linshan, leads a quiet life there. The city's rainy season comes every March or April, but it came a bit early this year. The city became wet and cold during the rainy season. Zhuzi suddenly felt uncomfortable and with an emotion of nervousness. He did not know why the feeling came to him. He kept going to the hospital to examine his body, eyes, nose, ears, and skeleton with a suspicion that he was ill. After every exam, the doctor told Zhuzi that he was all right. Gradually, Zhuzi realized that the doctor was right. He did not suspect anything wrong with his health any longer. The quiet and prosaic life that he was leading was what he feared. He found that he still loves life. He felt that he should lead a happy life. At this moment, the rainy season in Hangzhou would end soon. (- Yang Fudong)
