The Super Sneaky Temple Girl Reunion

Hey Hey and a Big G’Day toya, Anyone remember Luo Wei?Raised in a tiny village temple. We met on a busy road near the north gate of Kaifeng City many years ago and spent the following three years together. At the time she worked in Xian City so I moved to a small mountain school three hours bus ride away and visited her in Xian each weekend. We travelled much of northern China together and she sneakily snuck down to Fujian Province several times after I moved to the far north western mountain regions. She had no father and her mother is strictly traditional Chinese. After a few years it became apparent to us that unless we eloped there was to be no future together and if we were to have she would have lost her family. She had never seen the sea before so just as some plan their wedding we planned our separation and spent several weeks together by the seaside in Shandong Province before she boarded the train back to Kaifeng city to be with her family. We have kept in touch usually once a month/fortnight etc ever since and sometime between then an now a husband who suited was found and mother was happy. A month ago she gave birth to a baby boy and both her and her husband invited me back to the north of China to meet their new baby. When her mother found out I was coming to visit she then invited me to the large family lunch/dinner to celebrate the birth. You see, it was never that her mother hated or disliked me, she was just to traditional Chinese and worried that her little girl would be taken away. It was a difficult time for both her and her Luo Wei as she grew and was raised in a tiny village temple. Her mother couldn't afford to feed her let alone clothe her. But all worked out well in the end and those Monks did something right as she topped her uni with her final scores and that same university offered her a teaching position the following semester.
