A Boy (Who) Looks Very Handsome

Last month I started to learn paddling boat, among (the) student (who) learns paddling boat together with me, there is a boy called Zhou Shiwen, (the) teacher calls him Little Zhou, he looks really handsome! I practice paddling boat every Sunday afternoon, so every week (I) can see him (for) one time. After practicing (and then) going back home, I sometimes would want to make phone calls, send emails to him, but I (did) not, because I felt we were not friends yet.

Who knows (that) today(’s) morning, I saw Little Zhou in the school! (At) that time, he was riding (a) bicycle, at a place very far away from me, so I (did) not call to him. I (was) especially happy, (and I) was thinking. “Would he be our school’s student or not? ” I planned to ask him really quick when paddling boat (on the) weekend.

(In the) afternoon, I was sitting in (a) coffee shop drinking tea (and) reading (a) book, (I) saw there was a very tall boy outside, (and he) was wearing one “jian” (of) very nice-looking clothing. Isn’t that Little Zhou? He also saw me, (and) entered (the) coffee shop smiling, (and) said to me, “I (have) seen you before, we paddle boat together (on the) weekend, you paddle very well every time! Are you also this school’s (student)?”

Together sitting(,) we drank coffee drank (for) 30 minutes. He said to me very many things about him, who knew (that) he already (has) been in a relationship with (his) girlfriend (for) 8 years (now), next year (they) already plan to get married! After hearing these (stuff that) he said, I closed (my) book, (and) said to him, “(It is) already 6 o’clock, my friend is waiting (for) me in the sports field, (it is time for) me (to) go (now).” After him hearing (that), (he) said(,) smiling, “OK, We (will) meet when paddle boat (on the) weekend!”

After coming out from the coffee shop, I (, ) one person (alone,) walked on the school’s street (surface), thinking, “why all boys looking handsome already have girlfriends?”
