*This is the story that I had submitted for Creative Visual Studio: My Love Story Contest*
It was the date that I was etched to my heart, because it was the day we officially began our love story. When I was young, the influence of our growth hormones and peer pressures had caused me to work and try so much, to find the perfect man. I had a trillion of crushes on most of the hot guys, good looking guys, and also even bad guys. It's something uncontrollable, fun, and it made me who I am today. Our encounter was through a random MSN group chat. At that time Facebook have not even existed. Loyally, me and my 9 other friends would spend hours talking about crap stuff, movies, lame jokes. 6 of us made a bet, if we passed this semester, we would skip the degree orientation and go to Genting Highlands to play. And that's what we did. 6 strangers, fled to Genting Highlands the 2nd day of orientation! From there, our courtship began...
He would scare me in the haunted mansion, and cheated me to ride on a roller coaster with him (which i had willingly let him cheat). As mean as he is, he has a soft side too. He would ride the boat-cycle and tell me stories. He would try his best to accompany me wherever I go. Come rain or shine, he is there to provide me shelter - umbrella or his bare hands. Just like what people always say, the sweetness of love will die down after we both dated. Yes, we are no longer lovey dovey like before. Perhaps we have became more mature.
I remembered that I had some health problems. I was so busy with my university duties that I had a serious constipation and was bleeding profusely (Don't imagine it, its disgusting). He brought me home and took care of me until I healed, and do not have to go for minor operation. I thought that worst had happened to me, but I was wrong.
Two weeks after that, I encountered problems with my eye. Due to lack of sleep, and tired eyes, my contact lens damaged the outer layer of my cornea and I was admitted to a specialist center. It was the scariest incident that ever happened. The pain was excruciating, and I couldn't open my eye. The movement of air around me will cause friction to my wound and I would be in unbearable pain. But the doctor told me that I need to keep my eyes open so that oxygen can flow in, otherwise my vision is damaged. It was a moment of torture, because I cannot cry. But he held my hand, and coaxed me to reduce painkillers and put eye drops. He fed me food because I cannot see. Thankfully, I still can see the beautiful world today.
Oh ya, did I mention that I have allergic problems too? Well, when we first dated, I told him that when I'm sick do not come visit me. I have some allergic problems with Panadol and other fever medications that when I ate them, my eyes will be swollen like a goldfish. But he came anyway, he had a great laugh but he still took care of me.
Well I guess, love is indeed powerful. When love is true, it doesn't matter how you look or what became of you, you will still be loved. So this is the 7th year of us being together, and I cherished every moment that I have with him.
