Now, the VOA Special English program WORDS AND THEIR STORIES.

Today's program is all about eyes. When it comes to relationships, people's eyes can be a window into their hearts. This means that their eyes can tell a lot about how they feel. We will tell a story about a man and woman who are teachers at the same school. The woman is interested in the man. She uses many methods to catch his eye, or get him to notice her. Once he sets eyes on her, or sees her, she might try to get him interested in her by acting playful. In other words, she might try to make eyes at him or give him the eye.

Let us suppose that this man gets hit between the eyes. In other words, the woman has a strong affect on him. He wants to spend time with her to get to know her better. He asks her out on a date.

She is so happy that she may walk around for days with stars in her eyes. She is extremely happy because this man is the apple of her eye, a very special person. She might tell him that he is the only person she wants, or "I only have eyes for you."

On their date, the couple might eat a meal together at a restaurant. If the man is really hungry, his eyes might be bigger than his stomach. He might order more food than he can eat. When his food arrives at the table, his eyes might pop out. He might be very surprised by the amount of food provided. He might not even believe his own eyes. If fact, all eyes would be watching him if he ate all the food. This might even cause raised eyebrows. People might look at the man with disapproval.

During their dinner, the couple might discuss many things. They might discover that they see eye to eye, or agree on many issues. They share the same beliefs and opinions. For example, they might agree that every crime or injury should be punished. That is, they firmly believe in the idea of an eye for an eye. They might also agree that it is wrong to pull the wool over a person's eyes. This means to try to trick a person by making him believe something that is false. But the man and woman do not believe in the evil eye, that a person can harm you by looking at you.

The next day, at their school, the woman asks the man to keep an eye on, or watch the young students in her class while she is out of the classroom. This might be hard to do when the teacher is writing on a board at the front of the classroom. To do so, a teacher would need to have eyes in the back of his head. In other words, he would know what the children are doing even when he is not watching them.


WORDS AND THEIR STORIES, in VOA Special English, was written by Jill Moss. I'm Faith Lapidus.

There are many things that happened during my childhood and adulthood, but during all of the important things, I couldn't remember clearly most of which, except for the emotions I had as a freshman the moment I fell in love with my college English teacher even in the first eyes. I clearly remember what was happening in our first English class as a freshman. We were sitting in our seats, waiting for our English teacher to come. And when all of a sudden, the beautiful-faced young girl,
who was about several ages older than me, appeared. Round face, big eyes, slender, all of which made him a beautiful girl I had never seen before. My face began to turn red and I was shy, not knowing what to say. Then I burst into a sentence which seemed offensive, how old are you. It was of course a private sentence, but I did have the courage to say it out, to make it whether it is possible for us to get married. She seemed to love me to just seeing from her eyes. She simply answered:"
Although you have offended me on my privacy, it doesn't matter that much." Then he asked a man from a classroom to see what was wrong with the compute she used for teaching. At that time, I knew she was seeing whether I still loved her by arranging another person in front of me to compare with me, to see who was better. Of course, I was much handsome than the man she asked for help. But I still had a sense that she might go with the person. Although what I said is a little offensive,
I did make an impression on her. On the days ahead, I studied very hard, nearly spending all the time studying English, to make myself distinguished in English so that I could make a good impression on her. As days passed by, my English was becoming better and better day by day. However, something unexpected happened. I was cheated into having a kind of mental illness and I had to give up my studies. During the days forward, I could do nothing but to struggle away with the illness
as well as the medicine that caused enormous side effect on me. Then one day there came a message from our school, saying that there was nothing wrong with my mind and I knew that what I told her about my illness was wrong. I told her I suffered from depression while in fact I was suffering from nothing. But it was too late. Perhaps for her knowing that I was suffering from mental illnesses, she failed to mail me afterwards. I had tried much to mail to her, only rejected by a piece of message,
automatically sent by the system that she set. I am still thinking about her, but we don't match for she is now had been rewarded a doctor degree while I have to see what is happening about my web shop in front of the computer to see if there is anyone asking me for advice about my pets.
eyes are the window of heart. I still believe I will only have eyes for a boy.

hit between the eyes----受宠若惊
I believe eyes can be a window into people's hearts. I don't know that a word "eye" can have so many meanings until I read this article.
