Another short story from Ding Mo. Ding Mo wrote this story after she woke up from her dream.
FL (Cui Wei) was arguing with her colleague in the office. Suddenly, she found herself woke up in a white room. FL saw her colleagues and other strangers. The room has many doors. When the doors open, there are many prison cells. There was announcement asking all of them to enter the prison cell. One prison cell for each person.
On the 47th day, there was a group of people who came. FL noticed that these are not humans, but aliens. The alien has the physique like a human except they have no eyes. Each alien is assigned to live in the same cell with the human prisoner. The alien told FL, his objective is to love her. FL’s imprisonment became less lonely with another companion.
10 days later, FL noticed that some prisoners started to have sex with the aliens. FL refused to have sex with her alien and her alien also did not force her. FL’s alien named himself Cui (ML) after FL. One night, ML asked FL what she wants. FL said she wants to escape to live a free life. ML said he will help FL. ML told FL that his eyes will grow eventually, and he will look like human.
A fire broke out in the prison. ML escaped with FL. They settled down in a small town and live as husband and wife. But their happiness did not last long. A year later, a group of aliens came to take them away. ML fights and asked FL to run quick. The aliens puzzled with ML’s action. FL woke up again in a room and saw the alien cut her body.
When FL woke up again, she was sleeping at her desk in the office. FL touched her abdomen and can feel a long thin scar. FL became depressed and quiet. FL wondered whether what she had experienced was real or hallucination.
FL moved job and house, and slowly got back to her life. FL did not tell anyone what happened to her. 7 years later, FL heard some sound at her garden. FL walked out and saw ML.
