Scorching August~!

Dididi…!

The harsh chirping of cicadas mixed with the bustling sound of traffic reverberated the active street.
The scorching sun seared the gray-brown asphalt road surface.
Under the surging visible heatwaves, the street seemed to be twisted.

Under the shade of the few trees on the roadside, a few youngsters gathered with cigarettes in their mouths, waiting for the traffic lights to turn green.

Suddenly, a young man who breathed out a circular puff of smoke seemed to have discovered something interesting.

“Ah Nuo, what are you looking at?” asked the companion beside him.

The young man named Ah Nuo stared blankly at the street corner, before speaking out, “Hey man… how do the blind people cross the road?”

His companion was stunned for a moment.
After a moment of pause, the companion answered slowly, “Generally speaking, there will be someone else looking after the blind person, or he would probably be under a guide dog’s care.
If it is in a modern city, there will also be a voice broadcast on the traffic lights by the roadside.
Worse come to worst, he can cross the road with the help of sound and his white cane [1]?”

Ah Nuo shook his head, “What if there is no one to take care of the blind person, no guide dog, no voice broadcast, and even the white cane is used to carry the peanut oil container?”

“What? You think you’re funny!?” The companion rolled his eyes, followed Ah Nuo’s gaze, and became dumbfounded at the next moment.

On the opposite of the road, a youth in black short sleeves was standing there.
He had thick black satin wrapped around his eyes for a few layers, blocking out all the light completely.

He carried a cheap shopping bag filled with groceries in his left hand.
He carried the white cane on his right shoulder, acting like a shoulder pole [2].
There was a yellowish plastic bottle of peanut oil at the end of the white cane on his shoulder!

Black satin wrapped around his eyes, the white cane on the shoulders, groceries in the left hand, peanut oil on the right shoulder…

This fantastic scene immediately attracted the attention of the surrounding people.

“Hey, look, that guy is so weird.”

“Can you see with such a thick cloth covering your eyes?”

“Didn’t you see the white cane in his hand? He was already blind, right?”

“It’s modern times.
Blind people typically wear sunglasses.
Who still wraps their eyes with cloth on a hot day? Wouldn’t it be too hot?”

“That’s right! Also, have you ever seen a blind person who doesn’t use a white cane to walk, but uses it to carry things instead?”

“Youngsters these days really know how to have fun.”

“…”

The chirping of cicadas in summer couldn’t cover up the whispers of the surrounding pedestrians.
They looked at the teen curiously and whispered among themselves whether he was really blind or not.
At the same time, they looked at the flashing red light with anticipation.

At this moment, a crisp voice sounded next to the teen.

“Brother, shall I help you cross the road?” It was a little girl in a school uniform, about thirteen years old.
She had beads of sweat on her cheeks; coupled with her big black eyes looking at the teen worriedly, she gave off a pure and innocent vibe.

The teen was stunned for a moment.
He turned his head to look in the direction of the little girl, and a smile appeared on the corner of his mouth.

“En.” He passed the grocery bag over to his right hand, freed his left hand to wipe off the sweat on his clothes, and gently held the little girl’s palm.

Pata-!

The green light was on.

The teen stepped forward and walked across the road with the little girl.

The little girl was nervous, looking left and right to pay attention to the vehicles on both sides.
Her footsteps were cautious and timid.

As for the teen, he walked steadily.

In the eyes of everyone, this scene was unlike a kind girl leading a blind man across the road, but like an Oppa crossing the road with a child.

In a couple of seconds, the two reached the other side of the road.
The boy thanked the little girl and then walked toward the remote alley without looking back.

“He’s not blind.” Ah Nuo said firmly after he watched this scene, “He must be able to see.”

A young man behind Ah Nuo held his chin in one hand, thoughtfully.
Then, he seemed to have arrived into a sudden realization, “Oh, I get it now.
He’s cosplaying Lee Sin [3]!”

Pak~!

Arnold smacked on his companion’s head and scolded, “Trash, stop playing games every day.
Who has nothing better to do and cosplay a blink monk on the road? It’s suicide!”

After a 2 seconds pause, Ah Nuo murmured and added, “Besides, the blind monk has a red cloth covering his eyes, so it doesn’t look like a cosplay.”

“Ah Nuo, you still complained that I…”

“Shut up.”

“Oh.”

Just as the two were arguing, the young man who had been silent for a while watched the back of the teen leaving, frowning slightly.

“What’s wrong?” Ah Nuo noticed his gaze.

“I know him.”

“Oh, you know him?”

“That’s right.” The young man nodded, “When my cousin was still in elementary school, I heard that a student in their school had an accident and had problems with his eyes, so he could only wrap his eyes with black satin.
They said he had mental disorders…”

“Mental disorders?” Ah Nuo was stunned and carefully recalled the situation just now, “I don’t think there seems to be a problem from what I saw.”

“That was all ten years ago.
Maybe he has recovered, but things seemed to be quite a commotion at the time.
After a few days, the student dropped out.
It is said that he was transferred to a special school for the blind.”

At this moment, another person interjected enthusiastically, “By the wa
