Arrive at school at 7:30 everyday, say “Good morning” to everyone, force to fake a smile.
Have a class at 8:00 everyday, is taught to be the best.
Have lunch at 12:00 everyday, talk with another two friends.
H always stands in front of the window, looking up to the sky, murmuring to himself. Others talk in whisper onhim. S passes by.
S is on duty that day, she finishes it and is about to go home when to find H leans on the windowsill looking up to the sky.
S: (驻足，低头询问) What are you doing here?
H: (抬头) Watching the cloud. I wanna be a piece of cloud. It’s the freest one. (纯粹的满怀希望的) ( <let’s get lost>--Elliott Smith )
S: ……（愣住）No kidding.
H: I’m not. I’m serious. (认真地)
S: …… (突然转身跑开)
The next day, H is still there, squatting down next to the wall watching the cloud.
Class is over.
B: Oh, class is over. Yeah, have a rest! （伸个懒腰）
A: Finally over. A table of delicious is waiting for me.
B: That TV show is about to begin. Hurry up. (背上包，准备完毕)
A: Take it easy. You will catch it. (迅速整理)
B: (面向S) Are you ok? We have to go now.
S: I …… I have just found that I have something else to do. I’m afraid I can’t go with you. You’d better go first. I’m so sorry. I can go home myself.
B: Really? Well. Be careful when you are alone. Bye bye.
S: En. Thanks. Bye.
S: It’s not easy to see someone with
such a purely hope to say “I wanna
to be a piece of cloud.” Awfully hard.
S: Why is the cloud?
S: Why do you want to be a piece of cloud? What makes you think of that?
H:( <let’s get lost>--Elliott Smith ) …… Look at the cloud floating in the sky. They are drifting from side to side without relying on anything. They are changing their shapes disregard of anyone. (笑) A little self-oriented, maybe self-assured. But so free and easy, so pleased and satisfied. Maybe that’s the “free” that I’m searching for. …… A little different from what the teachers said, right? Maybe the opposite side. 呵呵
H: How I wish I could be a piece of cloud. (向往的)
S: …… ( 看了H 一眼，望着天空，若有所思)
S: Mum, can we be a piece of cloud?
M: Err? What are you talking about?
S: We can’t be. But how can we be free? How can we escape from stereotyped life? How can we be ourselves? ( <Evolution>--cat power )
M: (放下碗筷，认真地说) Don’t be fool. Who taught you that? It’s not the time to think about such kind of problems. Don’t forget the coming examination. Everything you should do is preparing for it. You didn’t do well in the last ones. This time, I hope you won’t disappoint us again.
F: Give up the thought such as being free, leading an unrepeated life. The people with such thought can not exit on this world. Do well in the exam, graduate, go to a good college, and find a well-paid job. That’s life.
Then, they always squat down in the classroom together. He hope to be free. She is noncommittal as she awfully can’t answer. ( <my interpretation>--MIKA )
A: There’s a strange guy in the neighboring class.
B: Yeah, yeah. I have heard of him. (点头附和，突然面向S) You know him, don’t you?
S: Ah? En …… (表情僵硬) ( <maybe not>--cat power )
A: What? I wonder if you are in love with him.（一针见血）
S: It’s impossible. How can it be? How could I know him! ( 心虚，突然站起) A idiot who want to be a piece of cloud can never have anything to do with me.
S say goodbye to her friends. They squat down in the classroom together, watching the cloud, talking.
S: They said I was in love with an eccentric fellow. (她实话实说)
H: By the word “eccentric fellow”, it may mean someone a bit different from the common run, maybe outstanding. （他总是会把触点放在出人意料的地方）
S: En. (她点头)
H: It will be very tired if you do as what others do. It’s no easy to be the same. (迷茫的望着远方) ( <between the bars>--Elliott Smith )
S: Well, let’s be a piece of cloud. (对他微笑)
H: 呵呵Ah. (笑)
The other day, S say goodbye to her friends. They squat down in the classroom together, watching the cloud, talking.
S: It is said that every school may have someone like you. And I run into you. It can not be called lucky, but not bad. (笑)
A: You didn’t go home with us these days. How is that?
S: Err? I’ve said that I have something important.
A: You have something important everyday? How can it be?
B: Are you keeping a secret? What happened? Tell us. Maybe we can help you.
S: Nothing happened. I’m fine, everything is fine. I’m …… I’m just a little busy these days. Thank you anyway.
A: You can tell us at any time if you
wish. We are always by your side. And
the exam is coming. We are all busy
reviewing lessons, so you should.
Nothing else is necessary at this time.
( < keep on running>--Cat Power )
S: En. (沉默)
They squat down in the classroom together, watching the cloud, talking.
H: Well, how to be a piece of cloud? (自顾自的陶醉)
S: En …… If we die, we can make it! Isn’t there a crematorium over there?! You can be burnt into a piece of cloud.
H: No death. Never say that word “die” so rashly. (突然捂住她的嘴)
S: (扳开他的手，喘几口气) If we can’t die, how can we be a piece of cloud, how can we be free? (他一票反对，自己没了立场，激动地大声说) …… I have to go.(背向他)
H: En. Bye bye. (微笑)
( <I'll Be A Virgin, I'll Be A Mo>--Maximilian Hecker) 他从窗台上看着她走在空旷的马路上。两边有树在婆娑作响，看着她抬头望着天空的流云，突然流下了泪，泪莹汹涌。
