I covered my mouth with my eyes widened, raising my head to gaze at him. The moonlight was behind him, making his expression dimly illuminated. While I was before him, my entire face was welcoming the moonlight. My facial expression should completely and clearly be filled with astonishment and stupidity.
Many years ago, under the memorial arch at the mountain gate, above the long flight of steps, after I got drunk and did that thing with Mo Qing, I fell into a deep sleep. It was not until the next morning, while I was fast asleep, he had placed the mirror around my neck.
Afterwards, I slept for more than half a month. When I woke up, I had forgotten everything that happened in those three days. So this affair with Mo Qing, other people did not even know about it.
Therefore, in Mo Qing’s recollections, only he himself should know about the affair under the memorial arch at the mountain gate. It became a secret, quietly hidden in his heart, unable to be told to anyone else.
As a result, even up until now, he had never told me about what happened that year.
So for what reason did I suddenly know about the origin of this mirror? I even said it with such certainty, so much so that I knew he gave it to me back then.

“It’s still better to fold a butterfly.” He tilted his head, gazing at the bright moon, “Two butterflies form a pair, makes a couple.”
I angled my head to look at him, only to see that he had already turned his face away, but his ears were slightly stained with redness.
No matter how I knew about it, in any case, I already knew about it. Since it appeared that by mentioning it, the both of us became somewhat shy, then let us just keep this tacit mutual understanding — this was his wish.
I bowed my head to fold another butterfly.
I restrained the slight but intensive stirrings in my heart, quietly experiencing the throbbing that was more tantalizing than the so-called ambiguity. It was as if there was a piece of paper stuck in between the palms of the two people. The paper unbreakingly separated the two palm
