After this year, I went back to school by bus. From Harbin to Hangzhou, it takes several transfers halfway, so I bought a hard seat ticket. When I was about to leave, my mother told me that there were so many people in the car that she told me not to be stolen. For me, who had lived for more than twenty years, I naturally couldn’t understand this point, so I motioned my mother to feel at ease. When I got on the train, I was carrying a suitcase and looking for my position in a crowded car. There are really too many people in the car, which is not too much for me to describe. Finally, I stopped in front of a position, but that position was occupied. When I was hesitating how to speak, the middle-aged man seemed to see my hesitant look. He asked the young man, is this seat yours? I nodded. The man stood up apologetically and gave me his position. I thanked, put my luggage under the car seat and sat by the window. This journey needs to go through a night. At this time, migrant workers in the North are all on their way back to the south to work, so there are too many people and the air quality is poor, I had to look out of the window for peace. In this season, the wind and snow were flourishing. As the train started slowly, the vision outside the window was gradually blurred, with a vast expanse of white, but there was no special scenery. At this time, I heard someone asking the young man, are you a student? I looked back at the man who asked me and found that he was the middle-aged man who just sat in my position. Now he is sitting opposite me. I nodded and looked at him with astonishment. He seemed to understand my doubts and explained with a simple smile that I let people in this position. As soon as that man got off the bus, I sat back again. I nodded doubtfully and began to look at him. He was wearing the green military coat of more than twenty years ago, with dark skin and messy hair, holding a shabby cloth pocket in his arms. I don’t know what is inside. It seems that it should be migrant workers going to the south again. Maybe he felt me looking at me with vigilance again, looking at me and saying that my son was studying in changsha. This bag was made by his mother, and Rice was eaten in the South, so I sent it to my son. After hearing this, I felt a little like laughing. Now I can buy anything I want to eat. Why did I go all the way to send it to my son. Alas! Poor parents all over the world. When he looked at that middle-aged man for the second time, he had already handed me a yellow pancake. When I was stiff, there were so many people on the bus that I was embarrassed to ask for something for no reason. Besides, I didn’t know each other, so I was afraid that there would be harm. I have to refuse uncle Dao, no, I have eaten. Eat one, very delicious. The man had a warm face, but I was really embarrassed to refuse. Under his eyes, I slowly took the cake and took a bite. I thought to myself: there are so many people in the car that even bad people can’t do anything to me. Delicious? The man asked plainly. Delicious, lol. I smiled reluctantly and swallowed the dry cake forcibly. After that, because it was getting late, we gradually lost our words. I leaned against the window and fell asleep. When I woke up the next day, I used to look at the luggage under the seat and saw nothing in a daze. When I was stunned, my mind suddenly became clear. I was afraid that the luggage would be stolen, so I put it under the seat, but it was still gone. The luggage contains my half-year ration. I was about to arrive at the station. I was a little flustered and was about to leave to look for it. But when I looked up, I found my luggage beside the feet of the middle-aged man opposite me. My heart suddenly thumped. It was really not a good person. I walked to the front of the man and lifted the luggage angrily. As soon as I got back to my seat, the middle-aged man was awakened by my actions. He looked at me with anger, a simple smile, young man. Last night, a child spilled water under your seat. I think you care about that box very much, I put the box beside my leg, which is also safe. With his words, I lowered my head and looked at it. As expected, there was still water stain under the seat, and I felt ashamed immediately. He continued to say, young man, it is good to be careful outside, but don’t believe nobody, be alert to things, after all, people live for a lifetime, always believe something. Looking at his simple smile, my heart was deeply shocked. I apologized to that middle-aged man and recognized my mistakes. Indeed, nowadays people are full of distrust and Doubt. Because of money and interests, trust, a synonym, is rare. This is also the reason why I always think people are inferior to others. Therefore, when I was a child in rural areas, the trust and simplicity among people were what I missed. Soon, the bus arrived. I said goodbye to that middle-aged man. He helped me carry my heavy luggage and sent me to the front of the car door. I thanked him again and again. He said nothing but showed a simple smile. After getting off the bus, I stood in the crowd with warm sunshine shining on me. I suddenly remembered the words of middle-aged people that people should believe something all their lives. I smiled, this person really gave me a profound lesson. Looking at the Golden Sun, I suddenly felt that even though time could take away a lot of things, no matter after thousands of years, it could not take away trust. The simple smile of that middle-aged man appeared in front of my eyes again. The kind person was this beautiful flower, which bloomed in the field, and the fragrance dispersed around.
