yellowpud darling no. 6, suggests that you cut and paste all your english writings into one single page, easier lols!!!
okay~ here it goes:
They known each other since young and often headed to the village's pond for prawning. Every trip, that little boy will go home with extremely good catches. However the little gal will head home with nothing in hand, with a sad expression on her face.
Just before dinner, the boy went over to the little gal's place and apologised that he has frighten off all her prawns (hence she went home empty handed). He gave her a little tank with the prawns inside.
The little gal smiled. They grow up in this way.
"An innocent sorry"
The little boy often likes to bully to the little gal, to the point she is to tears. But however, he will tries to rectify the situation till she smiles and laugh again. This continues till they grow up.
Often he will purposely punctured her bicycle tyres, hide somewhere where he can monitor her expressions and wait for her to ring him at his mobile. She will lecture him about his behaviours and he will sneakily come out from his hiding place (from far) and apologise.
The gal will always softens and told him not to do it again, he nodded.
"A Happy Sorry"
Upon graduation, both of them have their own careers to fight for. He is always busy and at times, he can't even get to rest for the day in a month. She is upset and finally an argument broke out. She wants a breakup.
Often after the arguments, she will be the first one to make the move on mending the relationship.
That year, on her birthday, he promised a romantic celebration. She is glad and doll up nicely while waiting for him to come back for celebration.
However the wait ended up till wee hours. He saw her expression and apologised. Will you marry me? He took out a ring.
"A promised sorry"
Life after marriage, his career bloomed and often not, he has to be out doing entertaining. She turns into a full time housewife. Often preparing hot meals, cleaning up the house.
During her marketing trips, she will tend to buy some little prawns back and place them in the small tank. He asked her why. She will just smile.
Slowly as time passes by, he tends to come home with different perfume scent on his shirt. Each time she questions, he simply replies that there is much entertainment to do. From then on, she kept her slience and is no longer as cheerful as she used to be.
She will tend to stay at home and watch those teary korean dramas, crying along with them.
Whereas for him, it slowly becomes obvious that he tends to come home with only one type of perfume scent on him. She never questions, he will just gives the excuse that there is entertainment that day again.
"Lying Sorries Began"
Slowly as times go by, he started a routine of not going back home and going on business trips often. His career improved and many people tend to surround him, boosting his ego. He smiled at his own achievement.
Whereas for her, she tends to go to the supermarket to get necessities and instant noodles before locking herself at home for a long long time.
In the past, she used to be able to chat with him about his days. But now, she is left all alone, without anyone to talk to. Each time she rang, asking when will he be home. He will always reply her with "I am sorry, am really busy"
She will hang up with deep disappointment and no longer ask him when will he be coming home.
"Sorry as Excuses"
She started learning how to doll herself up through watching television programs, as she feels that perhaps he is bored of the ways she look. Hence she decided to put in some effort and fight for her happiness before it's all too late.
That day, she decided to visit him at his workplace. This is the first time she is visiting him there and most probably the only time. Upon reaching, she observed the surroundings, feeling that it has a good environment.
She slowly walked to his room, passing the long walkway and never did she expected such a scene to happen right before her face when she opens the door.
In front of her is not the same man who is her husband, the guy who tends to play pranks on her by intentionally spoiling her bicycle and definitely not the same little boy who gave her that little tank of prawns. But a man who is engaged in middle of sexual intimacy with another woman.
The other woman is sitting on the table, moaning away where he is behaving like a wild animal. He finally noticed her and immediately zips up his pants.
However she has already left. He gave chase. It was raining heavily that night, she no longer wants to listen to him and his excuses but just ran straight ahead to the direction of home.
He shouted, " I am sorry, I still love you. I am sorry, I love only you."
But she didn't hear him.
He can't find her anywhere. She has been missing for a long time. His world turns into darkness, without having any motivation to work nor to entertain. He can't think of anywhere that she will be for she has no friends. Her only friend is him.
He guards by the phone everyday, not willing to turn off his mobile phone as he is afraid to miss her call.
This wait turns into more than half a year.
A courier came by one day to deliver a box to him. He opened them and found many pictures of prawns in them, along with a letter.
The contents of the letter:
"I am sorry that I do not have any courage to face you. Perhaps I am too weak, or maybe I do not wish to see you. I reckon there are no differences in these two. I am doing fine and have learnt how to live on my own, support myself financially after leaving you. Now I no longer need to ensure my mobile is on 24 hours just to wait for your call.
I have learnt how to treasure and love myself. I believe that I am able to forget about my love for you as you have hurt me so much.
The divorce papers are just below the fish tank. After you have signed it, just need to courier it back to me at the address given will do. I'm sorry but I am tired of these."
He followed the address given with hopes that he will be able to see her and seek her for forgiveness, letting her know that he can't do without her.
However the person who opened the door is her father instead and her photo is right behind him, on the altar. Her father told him that after she is done with the letter. She jumped off the building, ending her life.
"When Sorry Becomes The End"
That year, he becomes insane. In everyone's life, we tend to meet someone whom we really treasure. Please hold on and treasure that special person. No every sorry can exchange for a - it's okay. Never let that person down.
Pass this story around and let your friends know that not to abuse the word - Sorry.

Very touching story. The chinese version is better, have more feelings in it. Thanks for sharing~
is it because pregnant woman are more emotional, i read every single word of it...and i wept...
i feel so sad for the woman who plainly just love her man...
i'm glad that the man finally has some sense of remorse, the woman didn't die for nothing. at least the man still loves her.
