When i recall

Postby greatJim » Tue Sep 21, 2004 3:42 am

Someday
I believe i have been lost
Somewhere
Someplace
only left me one
--the world
And what give me passion
the memory
the friends
or my heart
(When i recall)
:D :D

Could i be a poet?
i see a film today,
and have lunch in the pub near my house.
i still feel not very good after two months' sickness.
when i get up ,awake in the morning,i often feel dizzy,and with a heavy head.
then i turn on the recorder nearby .
i listen the radio.and sometimes hear a short while english news.
After brushing my teeth,i wash my face with water.
oh!one new day begins.

Today i would like to say the word---"heartbreak"
yes,it seems i am a beginner in writing in English.
And---
and i seldom use it in my ordinary life.
But what i want to say is it is a good way for me express my feeling inside ,
makes me feel calm and sense the touch of pease in my heart.
of course,also gives me a pride ,like talking to the world here.
---
My heartbreak happened when i recieved a letter from a girl .
At that time,i walked to the window,leaving the paper on the bed.
i think i haven't cry.i just thought the end of the world came.And She said she had been married ...
Now i can say the story here.
And the time had passed for about seven years.

Since the icons here give me some self-confidence,i will try to tell the story,Thanks .
I shall say when you fall in love love with a girl,you should insist,stick to ,no matter what will happen in the future.
The girl what i met during my school life names Xiao Yi.
We recognized with each other at 1992.
At that time,we were studying by working in a institution together.
She was the monitor of Class 1.
coincidently SHe and I were assigned to the same work cell.Other groups are three persons or over three of students.
I am in Class 2.
In our department there were 3 classes at our grade.

Now Xiao Yi must have her own child .And we have grown up,too.
I also has been married,with my lovely wife.live together.
Does she sometimes think of me?i don't know.
we just met when we were young,and spent a happy period of time.
during that time,i am a junior student,and she is,too.
Ssometimes i think the junior student can't escape the destiny to fall in love with others.
but at that time i am just a boy,often feel alone.
Is the God make such an arrangement ,let Xiaoyi and I,get along with each other for once,and let this realationship last for 5 months?
If so,why not much longer,or all my life?

Xiao Yi is a northern local girl,she is the eldest daughter of a well-position family.
And i am from south.Beijing is an unknown city for me.
at that time,i was 19.and shy,introvert.
I like reading very much,and made me more reserve.
We get along not bad.that's really strange.maybe because she is very polite.
One day,a meeting was convoked.And we will follow with the engineers , doing the work.
One woman said,"Jim is gifted,i would like to lead him."
--After the meeting,Xiao yi joked with me,"you have been praized."
I said,"i were really embarassed just now."
She went to reticency.

Till today i don't know if i am gifted in architecture.But i know that's an assidious work,really need many persons' cooperation.
Maybe i just have no talent at all.
Xiaoyi and I were with each other almost every day.We worked together,sometimes went to the dinning hall together,and after the daytime work,we left the working place together.
We rid on the bicycles and i cycled to school,she went back to home.
We shared a fairly long road together.
One day,when we passed by a market,she said with smile,"Sometimes i really like to do some shopping ,buying the food and vegetable before the dinner."
I took a look of the market ,it was crowding.
"really fun?"i thought by myself.

BUt in those days,Sometimes i also felt the routine day was not suitable for me.
especially when it rained.
When it rained,i must take the bus in the morning.And it always made me wet.
Once i knew Xiaoyi had a boy friend ,it was out from a student's mouth at the same class of her.
he also said to me Xiao YI was not very happy ,although she and her boyfriend recognized with each other many years ago.
For some reason unknown,day by day ,i felt i had been in the mood of love ,but i don't know what she felt.
till one day,when we walked together,just she and I,She asked my length.i answered,then she said in low voice,"they said it was the best length distance between a boy and girl.YOu have 179cm,and i have 169cm,and just 10cm."
I thought this word touched me,and fell into a kind of reflection.
How quiet the world is at that moment!

The happy time seems always transient and easily to be forgottern.
When five monthes passed.The relationship between XiaoYI and I were ending,too.
And when the graduation came in the last year,She and I went to apply the job in the institution we were in together.But unfortuanately,both of us were not admitted.
I couldn't get a job in Beijing.And went to my hometown,Shanghai.
Before i left,I wanted to say goodbye to XiaoYI.
Yes,at that time,an atmosphere of graduation was spreading in the school garden.
many parties,many dinners together,and many alcochols.
We ,just would leave the university,leave the friendships we had shared,had owned in the 5 years.

That afternoon was sentimental.Because i would leave beijing.Maybe forever,as i thought at that time.
if so, i would never see my classmates,Xiaoyi and others again.
One classmate said to me,"Return back as soon as possible."
...
I drunk too much that dinner,and everybody seemed drunken.someone weeped.and we took photos ,one with another.
these kinds of activities were happening day by day.
and i also attended the party of Class 1.
i had no chance to say goodbye to Xiao yi.so i went to.they were in the YuanMingyuan garden.
We had not been together for 2 years after the practise working in 1992.Actually i wanted to talk her my feeling.I thought that was my last word i wanted to say to my classmates.

We played a little boat on the lake in the park.
Then took photos before the western door of our university.
I didn't know if XiaoYi had changed many.But when we stood together,i asked her if i could ask her to meet alone after the gathering.She said OK.
After taking the photos,the class dismissed.
I was on the bicycle,I told her,"I will go back to Shanghai."
"Yes."She nodded.And with a stop."I knew that."
We were riding aimlessly together.
"I...I ..."i just couldn't tell that word out.
"It doesn't matter.I think you should have confidence."She seemed just like two years ago,like we were working together.
I stopped the cycle.
"I love you."Suddenly i gushed out.
She looked like to be stimulated by the electricity.And after a while,gazed at me.
I just released myself after i had said the word.But in her strange line of sights ,i really felt embarassed.

Xiao YI was the monitor of the Class 1.So I think I must have override the truth at that moment.Maybe she just thought me as a member of the class.
After we gazed each other for several seconds,She putted her eyes down,and began to play her long hair.
We just looked like two silly children ,standing beside the street in the school .
I began to lose my head.and she moved me very much.Maybe I just became crazy suddernly.
I said,"would you like to marry me?"
She must hear that word.I didn't know what I was talking.
She said to me softly,"I am going back home."
And didn't say word any more,she had turned the bike to the opposite direction.

GreatJim, what a sweet story!!!

But something went wrong, didn't it? Maybe she loved you back, but when you asked her to marry you she got scared and left... :roll:
