(1) A Centurial Meeting

With yellow words of “ Warmly welcome the first graduates from Gan Yue high school in 1961”, a red banner was hung upon the main gate of Hui Yuan Hotel on October first, 2007, the National Day of PRC. Among the red ocean of thousands of fete flags, neither the banner color, nor the wording was outstanding at all. However, it really demonstrated an unusual case for hundreds of senior guests to gather around the lobby or frequently to pass through the main gate.
With tears streaming down their crinkling faces, they all were over-zealously shaking hands, fiercely hugging or even striking to each other, which looked extremely unmatched with their maturity and oldness.
It was about 10 a.m., when two elder couple got off from a taxi and passed through the crowd. They came to the reception desk and filled a form to check in:
“Name: Huang Zhi Ming, Sex: male, Age: 75, Current Family Address: XXX in Nan Chang, Accompanied Spouse: Feng Shu Zhen, Age: 68……”
In the mean time an old lady with gray hair stood behind, she looked at their backs up and down without a single word until she found the names filled on the book:” Excuse me, Is it Feng Shu Zhen there?” she asked hesitatingly.
Immediately responding to the voice, the lady, named as Feng Shu Zhen, turned to her and stared her for a long time in bewilderment. Then, she suddenly shouted out:” Wow, my God! It is Li Xi Hua, I suppose.”
With tremendous excitement, two old ladies strode forward and hugged tightly.
