Story about Shredded Pork with Garlic Sprouts
One day, the boy sent a letter to the girl, in which he told a story – in a small town, a boy went to the market opposite his school to buy food after the class. On crossing the road, he saw a senior peasant throw out a load of garlic sprouts into the air, crouch down, and tears couldn't help flowing from his aged eyes. In that year, many family planted garlic, and had a good harvest thanks to the favorable weather. As a result, the price was rather low. Peasants had no choice but to sell them at a loss after hard work. The peasant was actually the boy's grandpa, and the boy was in fact himself.
After reading the letter, the girl went to the small restaurant where she often went with the boy when they were in the university. She ordered and savored thsi dish and jasmine tea again. Surprisingly, she found that they were such a perfect match. She then ran to the railway station to look for the boy.
