I never thought this day would come.

I, Liang Wenbin, am lying on the big bed in the hotel, looking helplessly at the ceiling in front of me.

And next to me, there was a body that was as naked and dripping with sweat as mine, a soft and youthful body that I had held tightly in my arms just now, but now I couldn't avoid it, and I couldn't wait to take it right away. The body fled from her.

The body wrapped in the fragrance was tightly entangled with my body. From such a close distance, I could clearly hear the breathing coming from that body.

Her chest was close to my chest, and the soft touch clamped my arm. I knew what it was. I could even feel the beating of her heart in her chest. All of this... reminded me, Remind me that this is not a ridiculous dream, but a fact that actually happened to me.

I regret it, even though it seems a bit unkind to say this after the clouds have cleared and the rain has cleared, but I really regret it.

Why...why did I agree to her? Am I really obsessed? Another face suddenly occurred to me.

It was a face that was very similar to the one lying next to me, but completely different and existed only in my memory.

Xiaoli, I'm sorry for you, I'm really sorry for you.

I sincerely apologize to my late wife who has been dead for twenty years. I dare not expect forgiveness. I am not qualified. As if sensing the change in my mood, she who was lying next to me loosened her arms, twisted around and sat up.

Her long hair fell in front of my eyes, and I turned my head away from her eyes.

She reached out and caressed my bare chest and belly.

I found that restless hand reaching for my lower body, reached out and held down her arm to stop her, "That's enough."

And she didn't express anything because of my rejection. She just said with a slight smile: "Then take a rest. I've done it three times and I'm tired."

I did not comment on her words, stood up, and prepared to get out of bed.

The moment I put on my slippers and prepared to stand up, she suddenly hugged my body from behind.

The feeling of the fullness of her breasts was clearly felt on my naked back.

"What are you doing, Lili?"

Although I tried to keep my words strong, I felt weak in my heart.

I'm not sure if I can stick to my bottom line if she invites me again.

Fortunately, she didn't make any further moves. She just hugged me and said in a whisper-like voice: "Let me hold you for a while, just for a while..."

I didn't refuse her, just like that, we maintained this intimate posture for about a minute.

If we were not naked now, and if we were not 25 years apart in age, then we must be a very close couple or family in the eyes of outsiders, right? But it was impossible at that time. From the moment we walked into the hotel together, from the moment we took off our clothes - our relationship could never go back.

"Lili..."

"I know, I'll be fine soon."

Her dull voice came from behind me. I knew that she might be crying, but at this time I could no longer comfort her or wipe away her tears like before.

I don't have this qualification anymore.

She released her hold on me, got up from the bed, and sat next to me.

I wanted to get up and leave, but she held my hand again.

"Let's take a shower together?"

I didn't dare to look at her face, and I couldn't refuse her request.

In the bathroom, the hazy water vapor obscured her face, which made me feel a little better, and I could finally face his normal activities.

But her meticulous attempts to help me bathe still left me at a loss.

"Lili, I can do it myself."

"It's okay, let me help you. You can't reach the back, can you?"

The bath towel in my hand was taken away by her, and the gentle movements spread on my back, which was very comfortable.

This used to be one of my most enjoyable moments, but when she turned twelve, I stopped taking baths with her to avoid suspicion. This enjoyment also stopped fifteen years ago when she turned twelve.

Fifteen years, it’s already been fifteen years.

At that time, would I have thought that this day would come to pass? I am a sinner, I am committing a crime... I was so immersed in memories that I didn't even discover when she turned to me.

The shower head that sprayed hot water had been turned off at some point, and under the dim light, her naked body and face were clearly visible.

"Come on, wipe the front too."

"No, no need, Lili. I'll do it myself, I'll do it myself!"

I didn't dare to look at her face and tried to snatch the towel from her hand, but she nimbly dodged it.

It seemed that the movement of my side face was too relaxed, and he also hugged my shoulders.

"Well, I believe you, Dad."

I held Lili and my daughter.

In my heart, there was only a deeper regret spreading.

On this day, I wanted my daughter.

And everything that is irreversible started from that night, that unhappy family gathering... A few days ago, I received a call from Lili before getting off work.

"Dad, you don't have any entertainment tonight, do you? Then come to my house for dinner. I want to discuss with you what to do about Mom's matter."

What Lili was talking about was referring to the anniversary of my late wife’s death.

For the past twenty years, I have come to the festival with my daughter every year on this day.

Even during the years when Lili went to college and went abroad, she would always take time to come home and commemorate her deceased mother with me.

Lili and I both pay great attention to this day every year.

Because my wife is the only daughter of my father-in-law and my mother-in-law, after the two elders passed away, I rarely had any contact with my wife’s relatives.

So every year’s death anniversary becomes a memorial day for my daughter and me.

But this year, things have changed.

At the beginning of last year, Lili got married. Her son-in-law is a young man I also know. He is two years older than Lili. He is a very capable young man. Due to work reasons, I had some relationships with him before Lili met him. I have a good impression of him.

To be honest, I was very surprised that Lili finally married him. Lili lost her mother when she was seven years old, and I never remarried. She has always been behind me to support the family, and her personality has become very strong.

After graduating from college, she took the master's degree examination, and then took the doctorate degree after graduation. It was after she was 25 years old that she really entered the society.

My own daughter has become a female doctor. Although I am very proud of her, I am also worried about how her lifelong event will end.

I am very happy that Lili can meet her current husband and that the two of them have entered into marriage smoothly.

I am very optimistic about my son-in-law. Although I am a little unwilling and reluctant, I have decided to entrust my daughter's happiness for the rest of her life to his hands.

Therefore, last year, I took the initiative to propose to Lili that she invite my son-in-law to come to honor her mother. At that time, she had just gotten married. My proposal was somewhat inappropriate, so in the end Lili refused because it was not the right time, and I did not Think more. Unexpectedly, this year, Lili took the initiative to bring it up to me. Today's phone call also invited me to discuss the details of this matter.

"Okay, I've put off all the things I did in the evening. It's 7 o'clock, right? I'll definitely be home before then."

While I was talking to my phone, I was thinking about what kind of entertainment I would have tonight.

"Well, okay. Then I'll wait for you to come over. Dad, please be careful while driving."

"I know, hang up."

After hanging up the phone, I put down the phone, but I couldn't remember what the evening's entertainment was.

People are like this when they get older. I think I was famous in the factory for my good memory when I was in the workplace. The deputy factory director even nicknamed me "Living Ledger".

As a result, now, I can't even remember what kind of entertainment I have tonight. Time is not forgiving.

Just as I was thinking, my savior came.

"Old Liang, you haven't left yet?"

The person who opened the door and walked in was my old buddy and my old partner Li Zheng.

At that time, the two of us resigned from the state-owned factory and went to work together. Because of our good relationship, we have been working together as a team until now.

"Leave now, I'm just packing my things,"

I said and asked: "Lao Li, where are you going tonight? I can't remember anything in my mind."

"Are you too forgetful? Didn't I just tell you yesterday that Mr. Liu will invite you to dinner tonight and go to KTV? Have you forgotten all about it?"

I suddenly realized it, patted my forehead and said, "I forgot, I forgot, look at my memory."

Li Zheng picked up the key from his desk. He and I share the same office and the desks are next to each other.

Then he looked at me and said, "Do you have anything else to do today?"

I looked at him in surprise and asked, "How did you know?"

I haven't said anything yet about not going to socialize tonight.

"Hey, how many years have we been together? If you ask me this kind of question, you must have other arrangements, otherwise you would just go along without asking. When have you ever taken care of this kind of entertainment? Not all I'm the only one doing this."

"What, you're still complaining to me?"

I said, and Li Zheng looked at each other, and both laughed.

"Okay, let's not talk about anything else. I really have something to do tonight. My daughter called me and asked me to go back for dinner. She said she wanted to marry me.

Now that Lili has a family, should I... make more plans for myself? Seeing that I was silent, Li Zheng seemed to think that the atmosphere was too dull, so he changed the subject and said, "Yeah, I'm talking too much. So what, you can come with me to have fun some other time. You are as strong as an ox. It will be good for your health to find a young woman to calm down the anger."

I looked at Li Zheng and knew that he was thinking about me, so I smiled and said, "Are you encouraging me to go prostitute again? Aren't you afraid that I will tell you about your family's affair?"

"Tch, she and I are separated anyway. If it weren't for my son, I would have left a long time ago. Can she control me?"

Li Zhengze was very disapproving, but I could see that there was a lot of bluff in his words.

"Come on, I'm messing with you, I need to leave quickly."

I buttoned up my coat and passed by Li Zheng. I didn't forget to pat his bulging beer belly. "You should exercise more, old boy. Look at that belly. Do you want to go with me tomorrow morning?" Running?"

"No, no, no, I'm already this old. I can't compare to someone like you who has been practicing all this time."

Li Zheng shrunk when I took the photo. In fact, he had a good figure when he was young, but he started to gain weight once he turned 30, and finally became what he is now.

"Leave quickly, you."

"Let's go."

After leaving the office, I ran all the way through the corridor. Fortunately, the elevator was open when I arrived, which saved me a lot of time waiting for the elevator.

When I arrived at the underground garage, I saw a long queue at the exit.

I knew it was over and I would definitely not make it before 7 o'clock. Sitting in the car, I called Lili first.

"Beep...beep..."

Well, no one answered? Maybe someone is in the kitchen? I looked at the clock and saw that it was already 6:25. According to past habits, Lili should be preparing dinner now.

I waited for a while and made another call. This time, the call was connected quickly.

"Hey, Dad."

Lili's voice frightened me. Her voice was hoarse, with a hint of vibrato, as if she had just cried.

"What's wrong, Lili, are you crying?"

"No, I'm fine. I just accidentally splashed a little bit into my eyes when I was chopping vegetables. Well, onions, um... I didn't cry."

Although Lili said this to me, I clearly heard her sniffling.

I knew that Lili was hiding it from me. Ever since she was a child, she had always been so strong in order not to worry me.

"Lili, be obedient and talk to daddy. What's wrong with you? What happened?"

Lili was silent on the phone. The signal in the garage was not good. She seemed to say something, but I couldn't hear it clearly.

"Hello, Lili?"

I opened the door and got out of the car, preparing to walk to a location with a slightly better signal.

"I'm here, Dad."

Lili's voice finally became clearer, but her crying tone also became clearer. She suddenly lowered her voice and said, "Dad, come here. It's hard to tell on the phone. I'm waiting for you."

"Okay, I'll be there right away. You must wait for me."

After I finished speaking, I hung up the phone. I didn't care about the car in the parking space. At this time, I just wanted to rush to Lili's side.

Taking the elevator from the underground garage to the outside, I reached out to stop a taxi that had just dropped off a customer.

"Quick, take me to the Garden Community!"

I was so anxious that I just wanted to fly to my daughter's side.

What happened? It was supposed to be a harmonious night, but... what happened?
