Xuan Ren sees Feng Jiu roasting sweet potatoes, and wants to eat it. She shares the sweet potato with him, and reveals she’s loved the flavor after she ate the roasted sweet potato someone specially made for her.
Xuan Ren thinks the person isn’t simple. Feng Jiu says, “In fact, memories in our mind can be deceptive. After a long time, even if I rack my brains, I can only find a few shared memories with him. To me, I treasure those memories so much that I’ve even formed ideas that I shouldn’t have, which turns into obsession. But things will be different if I can relive those good memories by eating. Such a feeling will become an instinct. Just like tasting mom’s cooking for the first time in early childhood, I still find it familiar after recalling it many years later. Just like the sweet potato he roasted for me, however chaotic and disturbing the world is, as long as I think of that flavor, I feel relieved and happy.”
Xuan Ren wants to see the person, but Feng Jiu tells him that he is far away.
