A Silent Love - 无声的爱?At the very beginning , the girl’s family objected strongly on her dating with this guy. Saying that it has got to do with the family’s background, otherwise the girl would have suffered for the rest of her life if she were to be with him.
Due to the family’s pressure, the couple quarreled very often. Though the girl loved the guy deeply, she always asked him : “How deep is your love for me ?”
After a couple of years, the guy finally graduated and decided to further his studies overseas. Before his leaving, he proposed to the girl : “I am not very good with words. But all I know is that I love you. If you allow me, I will take care of you for the rest of my life. As for your family, I’ll try my best to talk them round. Will you marry me?”
The girl agreed, and because of the guy’s determination,, the family finally gave in and agreed to let them married. So, they got engaged before his leaving.
The girl went out to the working society, whereas the guy was overeas, continuing his studies. They sent their love by emails & phone calls.
Though it’s hard, they never thought of giving up.
One day , while the girl was on her way to work, a car lost control and knocked her down. When she woke up, she saw her parents beside her bed. She realized that she was badly injured. Seeing her mum crying, she wanted to comfort her . But she realized that all that could come out out of her mouth was just a sigh. She had lost her voice.
The doctor said that the impact on her brain caused her to lose her voice. Listening to her parents’ comfort, but with nothing coming out from her ,she broke down.
During the stay in hospital, besides the silent cry, only silence cry that companied her. Upon reaching home, everything seemed to be the same.Except for the ringing tone of the phone , which pierced into her heart every time it rang. She did not wish to let the guy know. And not want to be a burden to him. She wrote a letter to him , saying that she does not wish to wait any longer.
With that, she sent the ring back to hom. In return, the guy sent millions and millions of reply , and countless of phone calls, all the girl could do, besides crying , was crying.
The parents decided to move away, hoping that she could eventually forget everthing and could be happy.
In a new environment, the girl learned sigh language and started a new life. Telling herself every day that she must forget the guy . One day ,her friend came and told her that he’s back. She asked her friend not to let him know what happened to her. Since then, there wasn’t any more news of him.
A year passed and her friend came with an envelope, containing an invitation card for the guy’s wedding. The gril was shattered. When she opened the letter, she saw her name in it instead.
When she was about to ask her friend what’s going on, she saw the guy standing in front of her. He used sign language telling her, “I’ve spent a year’s time to learn language. Just to let you know that I’ve not forgotten our promise. Let me have the chance to be your voice. I love you.” With that, he slipped the ring back into her finger. The girl finally smiled.
