—在希腊 一大早在酒店和A吃完早餐就出发去爬奥林匹斯山，因为迷路误打误撞碰到了两个年轻的希腊小伙子结伴而行。丝毫不像南欧人的金发碧眼的Bill和教科书版希腊先哲Nic.中途在溪流旁边休息的时候，我坐在Nic对面，他给我介绍他上学的城市，也就是我和A要去的下一站，他时不时给我看他手机上和他朋友中二的照片，我应景而笑的时候无意间瞟到A坐在不远处的石头上和Bill搭着话却一直凝视着我们这边。后来，我和A并排而行，其他两人在前面探路的时候，他一反常态的问道‘what do you think of Nic?’,我偏过头不解的看着他，又表现得漫不经心的回答他‘oh, funny dude, good at holding a conversation and very infomative,just a typical greek.’他点了点头。下山的时候，因为已经连续在山间穿梭了一天，加上我嘴硬又没提出中途需要休息，走起路来已经有些摇摇晃晃，A问我还好吗要不要休息，我依旧坚挺着回答还行，他却当着另两人的面拦腰抱起我，小跳着下了一段山路。我当时就很纳闷，明明平时把我当成男生，从来不愿意主动伸手帮我的A，今天是吃错什么药了。在火车站，Bill即将坐上反方向的列车回家，我和A在铁轨另一边的月台上和他挥手告别，A又一反常态亲昵的搂了搂我的肩。我反应过来这小子今天是像陌生人宣示主权呢。晚上我提到发现路上的年轻人们都是男生一群女生一群的，他说‘可能希腊还是有些传统的吧，今天和Bill聊天的时候，我说我们俩儿只是好朋友，他打死也不信，一个劲儿的说Nah，和我爷爷奶奶的反应一样。’’我在脑海里勾画出Bill一个劲儿摇着头的样子忍不住大笑起来，的确这一路来都得费劲儿得解释我们并不是情侣，airbnb的host，酒店的reception，路上强行卖花的大婶儿，饭店的小姐姐。。。 我也不知道我们俩儿是怎么做到不参杂着其他感情而一起生活一起旅游一起谈男生女生。可是相处越久越发现我可以把A当作很近很近的朋友甚至某一天可能会依赖有他出现在我生命里的日子，可是却不可能喜欢上他。对于A来说也是一样，他会告诉我他家里的事情，在我面前情绪失控留下眼泪，但我也知道某天他碰到一个可爱的女生的时候他会说‘hey,V 我喜欢上了这个女孩。’ and I said to A:’stay single with me.’
