学生作品:

Dear K,

How are you?

Well, I may never know.  It is a little ridiculous to greet a dead man like this, isn’t it? -- But forgive me, my friend, forgive me for how awkward I am, for how weather-beaten I am, and for how old I am. These years for me were not easy. They were torturous, for you, my friend, had trapped me with a huge, deep, dark shadow, which I spent all these years trying to escape from.

You were everywhere, my friend.  Never stopped.  Never left.  Never gave me a break.  I knew, deep in my heart, that you came for revenge.  You came to tear the betrayer apart.  I knew it.  Why?  Because I left you there that day.  I ran away and left you there.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Sometimes, with his hand stretching outwards, he would hop out of the transparent capsule and pull me into the darkness, yet it was still not the most dreadful part of the story.  For most of the time, he would firmly hold my ankle with his chilly hand, while I was embraced by the warmness of the sunshine; the screaming burst out of my mouth viscerally and instinctively, but it was not powerful enough to strike the giant wall caused by the impediment of the inflow of the chilling water.  Then I sink to the seabed, to the core of the earth, to the exit of my dream.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I knew that I could have done something like rushing to you and pulling you to save your life, but I didn’t.  I couldn’t. I had always protected you like your brother, but I failed to protect you in that accident when you needed me the most. I was so frightened that I could not even utter a loud enough sound to remind you. Being a prisoner of my fear, I was absolutely a coward, a total villain and a nasty traitor who betrayed you and our friendship. It is the only one thing I’ve done in my life that I cannot find a reason to forgive myself for. For years and years, I’ve regarded myself as a sinner, and my soul was defiled by my own lack of action.

Today, I need to repent. I am sorry that I was once so selfish and useless. I am sorry for watching you disappear in front of my face. I am sorry, I am sorry and I am sorry for everything I’ve done. My dear, dear, dear buddy, I am begging you for your forgiveness. 

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It didn’t take long until I noticed that I was a dead man.  I could feel the water particles, which were dancing around me, and when I pointed with one finger, the water there soon became a vortex.  Joy that I had never felt ran through my body from my toes to my head.  It was a brand new power!  I began to concentrate on my muscles and pushing the water beside me as hard as I could.  The water around me ran faster and faster, stronger and stronger.  Like a conductor of a romantic music concert, I suddenly rose my arms up, just like playing the last note of a masterpiece---the water carried me up in the sky, becoming another enormous wave. 
My delight was visceral.  I laughed.

Mr. Revkin:
Hey there!  I am a Burmese python living in the Everglades.  Life here is just excruciating. 
Humans who live around here are not friendly to us.  In fact, they want us to die out!  You human-kinds are just self-contradictory and act like fools. 

You know what, I can still remember how I came here.  

Let me tell you from the very beginning.

It was years ago. I was at the beginning of my colorful childhood when I was first put in a glass tank. 

The words that the strong man called West yelled when he was holding the tank are still clear in my mind these days; “You beauty!”, he cried. Although I am actually a guy, I felt good.  West’s girlfriend Catherine was a young lady with smooth and fragrant skin.  At that time, I spent most of my time cruising around Catherine and sometimes I slept on West’s shoulders.  It was the best period in my life

A cadaver of a fish, which once belonged to the abysmal sea, has been washed on to the beach; it has successfully caught my attention.  Staring at it, I see how insignificant it is and how it has been cruelly swallowed by the tsunami.  It has been deposited here by the irresistible natural force.  An ineluctable termination of its poor and menial life was determined in its destiny.
