a very slow monday afternoon

I love the ending of 《连城诀》 (especially the very last line, which I’ve bolded!), even though much of the book is bleak and brutal and not my cup of tea:

狄云在丁典和凌姑娘的坟前种了几百棵菊花。他没雇人帮忙,全是自己动手。他是庄稼人,锄地种植的事本是内行。

只不过他从前很少种花,种的是辣椒、黄瓜、冬瓜、白菜、茄子、空心菜……

他离了荆州城,抱着空心菜,匹马走上了征途。他不愿再在江湖上厮混,他要找一个人迹不到的荒僻之地,将空心菜养大成人。

他回到了藏边的雪谷。鹅毛般的大雪又开始飘下,来到了昔日的山洞前。

突然之间,远远望见山洞前站着一个少女。

那是水笙!

她满脸欢笑,向他飞奔过来,叫道:“我等了你这么久!我知道你终于会回来的。”

金庸《连城诀》第十二回
