Snow Flower and the Secret Fan (Wayne Wayne, 2011)
Based on the novel by Lisa See
In nineteenth-century China, in a remote Hunan county, a girl named Lily, at the tender age of seven, is paired with a laotong, an “old
same,” in an emotional match that will last a lifetime. The laotong,
Snow Flower, introduces herself by sending Lily a silk fan on which
she’s written a poem in nu shu, a unique language that Chinese women
created in order to communicate in secret, away from the influence of
men. As the years pass, Lily and Snow Flower send messages on the fan
and compose stories on handkerchiefs, reaching out of isolation to share
their hopes, dreams, and accomplishments. Together they endure the
agony of footbinding and reflect upon their arranged marriages, their
loneliness, and the joys and tragedies of motherhood. The two find
solace in their friendship, developing a bond that keeps their spirits
alive. But when a misunderstanding arises, their relationship suddenly
threatens to tear apart.
The spring air was blowing through the county waking every creature within its touch, from the bugs and flies to the old citizens after a long period of roads and roofs covered with frost. Happiness was around every corner of the small town. Being a city girl, the county really mesmerized you. From the roads covered with leaves to the mild to no sounds of vehicles, everything was appealing. You loved strolling under the mild sun and feeling the air hit your skin. It somehow made every cell within you alive.
Being a teacher at the elementary school, you either just roamed around at the morning feeling the beauty of the county or wrapped yourself in bunch of warm blankets and stayed in your room during weekends. In between your daily chores you loved visiting the small coffee shop at the corner of the town. The warm aroma and the old brisk wooden frames always appealed you.
You stepped inside the shop to be suddenly attacked by the sweet strong yet soothing aroma. You sat at your usual place beside the window. You were just wondering when a boy approached you to take your order. He was the usual guy who served you. As the son of the shop’s owner, he almost worked there everyday. Dark Brown hairs, beautiful eyes and a million dollars worth smile. He was very fond of you. He always left you cute letters that spelled courage and support. He smiled at you handing you your daily cup of coffee. “So, How is noona doing today?” He sat on the seat opposite to yours. “Am fine, What about you?” You asked him with a smile. “Am fine too, well I think am getting late for my classes, so see you soon noona and yes I will text you . be safe” he stood up as he walked away taking off his apron and shooting you a one last smile before turning back. You kind of felt bad at first. maybe it was nothing. Or maybe you liked him. You were unsure of the fact yourself. Smiling you left the shop before sighing and walking back to you apartment.
Nothing special happened. You did your daily chores, Checking he papers, booklets , binders and re-checking your students attendance. Finally before sitting on the ouch to watch some random drama your phone pinged, alerting you about some notifications. But a certain notification caught your attention. It was from him. He asked you to meet him in 10 by the green fields which was weirdly amusing. You smiled before changing and finally heading towards the fields next to your school. You saw a small table on the middle with a cup of coffee placed upon it. Smiling, you headed towards the table. It felt great and surprisingly, you felt so special. Suddenly you saw a huge Bouquet of flowers heading your way. You smiled when you finally saw Taehyung. Smiling, he opened the lid of the cup for you. “A single date won’t matter.” it read. Smiling you looked at him with a confused face. Handing you the flowers he asked you. “Noona, I have been thinking about it for awhile. Will you go on a date with me?” He asked you fearing rejection. “Tae I” You were fighting butterflies. Finally before smiling and nodding a ‘yes’.
Sorry for this shit thingy but am so sorry. I will get my results today and am so nervous. Shit just 30 mins left.
