His unit passed by the field again the next day. The young lady from yesterday was there, filling her basket with flowers picked from the glorious field. As he was watching her intensely, the girl suddenly turned around and her eyes met his. The eye encounter lasted only a few seconds, as she quickly resumed her work, but left an undeletable impression on the young soldier. He was completely smitten by her youthful but enigmatic eyes. He had never met anyone whose eyes were as beautiful.
From that moment on, Hien could not stop thinking about her. Every time his unit patrolled the area, his eyes would wander the purple lavender field hoping for another glimpse of her. They would encounter again several times and occasionally exchange glances. On one occasion, the young lady gave him a bright smile. His heart was filled with ecstasy.
How could I ever forget her beautiful smile?
