"2005, December 3rd, heavy snow. Mother is sick, not feeling well. I thought about her a lot today."
"2006, September 1st, hot sun. Mother is transferring hospital. For the sake of mother, I decided to change school as well. It has been almost ten years since I last saw her, but the impression of her in my memory only deepened. Today, when I fell asleep by mother's bedside at the hospital, I dreamed about her. When I woke up, I was a bit confused, and I had a hard time telling whether the girl I saw ten years ago was real or just a figment of my imagination."
"2006, September 17th, cloudy. My request for the school transfer has been approved. The environment at the new school is not bad. The only annoyance are the various letters that stuffed my drawer every morning."
"2006, September 31st, windy. Remembered the names of two boys, Song Cheng and Qin Yinan, because apparently, I've usurped them as the most handsome student. Childish and boring."
"2006, October 27th, sunny, sunny, sunny. Dear diary, do you know? I'm really happy today because I finally met her! Ten years, ten years later, I finally found her again. Even though ten years have passed, I still managed to identify her with one glance. She is the Tingting I've been looking for! Unfortunately, she didn't even glance at me when she walked past me."
"2006, November 2nd, cloudy. Her name is Song Qingchun; Tingting is probably her pet name."
"2006, November 4th, sunny. By the school's lakeside, I saw a boy confess to her."
"2006, December 24th, light snow. She is Song Cheng's little sister. When Song Cheng came to our class today, I smiled at him because he is her older brother."
"2007, January 4th, sunny. The holiday is coming soon. Won't be able to see her for a month. Annoyed."
"2007, March 14th, White Valentine. She stood at the school gate alone. After a long wait, I finally walked up to her, and the first thing I said was 'Hello'. The only thing I saw in her eyes was wariness due to a stranger. She asked me, 'Can I help you?'
"'Is your name Tingting?' was my question. She said that I had the wrong person. I desperately wanted to tell her that I wasn't wrong. Ten years ago, I met her at Ming Jing alley, but before I could say any of that, she told me impatiently that her name wasn't Tingting, her name was Song Qingchun. Then, she ran toward the boy by the name of Qin Yinan. Sad."
"2007, March 15th. 1 am. Can't sleep. The most heart-breaking thing in the world is when I've been looking for you, but you have already forgotten me."
"2007, March 15th, 7 am. Stayed up since the previous entry. Not feeling sleepy, weirdly refreshed. I believe that I have fallen in love with the girl I've searched for the past ten years."
"2007, April 18th, 10 pm. The homework given by the physics teacher was so easy that I fell asleep writing it. I dreamed about her, and in the dream, I told her that I've expended three lifetimes to find her and now I will use another to make her my wife."
"2007 May 8th, cloudy. Got in a fight today because two boys mocked Tingting. They said she looked innocent on the surface but was internally a real b*tch. I was angered beyond belief. The teacher punished me by putting me on cleaning duty until the semester is over."
