Zh: 李娜和张伟笑得前俯后仰,气氛非常轻松。
En: Li Na and Zhang Wei laughed wholeheartedly, creating a very relaxed atmosphere.

Zh: 然而,在这大笑的过程中,王雷忽然通过一个玩笑评论了张伟的新发型。
En: However, during this laughter, Wang Lei suddenly made a joking comment about Zhang Wei's new hairstyle.

Zh: "看看你的头发,你刚从鸡窝里出来吗?
En: "Look at your hair, did you just come out of a chicken coop?"

Zh: " 他放声大笑,试图通过笑声调和语气。
En: He burst into laughter, trying to soften the tone with humor.

Zh: "我.
En: "I...I was just joking, I didn't mean to..." Wang Lei tried to explain, but Zhang Wei had already stood up and left the coffee shop in disarray.

Zh: 我只是在开玩笑,没想到…"王雷试图解释,但张伟已经站起身,溃不成军地离开了咖啡店。
En: Days passed, and Zhang Wei did not contact them.

Zh: 几天过去了,张伟没有和他们联系。

En: I understand that I made a joke in the wrong tone and hurt you.

Zh: 我从心底里向你道歉,希望你能找到接受我的道歉的勇气。
En: I sincerely apologize from the bottom of my heart and hope you can find the courage to accept my apology."

Zh: “张伟看着信,眼中含着泪水。
