Eileen Chang with her aunt, [s.d.]. This picture was taken on the balcony of my aunt's apartment. She jokingly told me that I shouldn't grow taller anymore. She wrote with a pencil on the back of the picture saying "Even though I look bad in the picture, her stance is natural so I wanted to show you. Kids often play around this area." After 2 years, she told me that my mom had trusted me to her. She needed to declare it to prevent me from getting closer to my aunt than my mother. -- "Dui Zhao Ji", p. 029
张爱玲与她姑姑的照片,[s.d.]. "在我姑姑的屋顶阳台上。她央告我'可不能在长高了。'我这张难看极了小瑛很自然所以寄给你看看 这地方是汽车间顶上小孩玩的地方 我们头顶上的窗就是我的Sitting room的。显然他是寄给我母亲同一照片寄出的一张上题字的底稿。我再稍大两岁她就告诉我她是答应我母亲照应我的。她需要声明,大概也是怕我跟他比跟我母亲更亲近,成了离间亲子感情。"-- 对照记,p. 029
