February Flowers by Fan Wu

February Flowers

Fan Wu

This is a gentle yet intense story of a young Chinese girl going away to University, and becoming a woman. The depth and fragility of her friendship with an older student are all too real, and the insight into life in 1990s China provides a fascinating backdrop to her relationships and life.

My first instinct was to leave the room. I was angry - I wasn't interested in seeing her in a bikini, or in knowing what 'sexy' was. It crossed my mind that she might ask me to try on the bikini, which panicked me even more. But a few minutes later my curiosity overpowered my anger and I calmed down. I assured myself it was perfectly fine for a girl to see another girl in a bikini. I still felt nervous and trapped but I stared at her, wondering what she would do next.
