"Promises are meant to be kept..."
From the very begining, the girl's family objected strongly on her dating this guy. Saying that it has got to do with family background, and that the girl will have to suffer for the rest of her life if she were to be with him.
Due to family's pressure, the couple quarrel very often. Though the girl love the guy deeply, but she always ask him: "How deep is your love for me?"
As the guy is not good with his words, this often cause the girl to be very upset. With that & the family's pressure, the girl often vent her anger on him. As for him, he only endure it in silence.
After a couple of years, the guy finally graduated and decided to further his studies in 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 leave, 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 & phone calls. Though it's hard, but both never thought of giving up.
One day, while the girl was on her way to work, she was knocked down by a car that 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 says 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 broke down.
During the stay in hospital, besides silent cries, it's still just silent cries that accompanied her. Upon reaching home, everything seems to be the same. Except for the ringing tone of the phone. Which pierced into her heart everytime it rang. She does not wish to let the guy know. And not wanting 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 him. In return, the guy sent millions and millions of reply, and countless number of phone calls, but all the girl could do, besides crying, is still crying...
Not long after, she joined a school that teaches sign language. Her parents decided to move away, hoping that she could eventually forget everything and be happy.
With a new environment, the girl learned sign language and started a new life, telling herself everyday that she must forget the guy. One day, her friend came and told her that he is 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 has passed and her friend came with an envelope, containing an invitation card for the guy's wedding. The girl was shattered.
But, 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've not forgotten our promise. Let me have the chance to be your voice. I love you."
With that, he slipped the ring into her finger.
When you tell someone that you love them, mean it.
