A Silent Love


From the very begining, the girl's family objected strongly on her dating with this guy. Saying that it had got to do with family background and that the girl would have to suffer for the rest of her life if she were to be with him.

Due to family's pressure, the two of them quarrelled very often. Though the girl loved the guy deeply, but she always asked him: "How deep is your love for me?"

As the guy was not very good with his words, this often caused the girl to be very upset. With that and also the family's pressure, the girl often vented her anger on him. As for him, he only endured it in silence.

After a couple of years, the guy finally graduated and decided to further his studies overseas.

Before leaving, he proposed to the girl: "I'm 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 with the guy's determination, the family finally gave in and agreed to let them get married. So before he left, they got engaged.

The girl went out to the working society, whereas the guy was overseas, continuing his studies.

They sent their love through emails and phone calls. Though it's hard, but both of them never thought of giving up.

One day, while the girl was on her way to work, she was knocked down by a car that had lost control.

When she woke up, she saw her parents beside her bed. She realised that she was badly injured.

Seeing her mum crying, she wanted to comfort her. But she realized that all that could come out of her mouth was just a sigh.

She had lost her voice......

The doctors said that the impact on her brain has caused her to lose her voice.

Listening to her parents' comfort, but with nothing coming out from her, she finally broke down.

During the stay in the hospital, it's just the 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 everytime it rang.

She did not wish to let the guy know, not wanting to be a burden to him.

She wrote a letter to him saying that she did not wish to wait any longer. With that, she sent the ring back to him. In return, the guy sent millions and millions of reply, and countless of phone calls.

All the girl could do, besides crying, was still crying....

The parents decided to move to a new place, hoping that she could eventually forget everything and be happy.

With the new environment, the girl learnt sign language and started a new life, telling herself everyday that she must forget the guy.
The love that has no bounds

One day, her friend came and told her that he was back. She asked her friend not to let him know what happened to her. Since then, there wasn't anymore news of him.

A year had passed and her friend came with an envelope, containing an invitation card for the guy's wedding.

The girl was shattered. When she opened the letter, she saw her name in it instead.

When she was about to ask her friend what was going on, she saw the guy standing in front of her.

He used sign language to tell her: "I've spent a year's time to learn sign language, just to let you know that I have 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.
