About This Blog

This is where I post my original works - stories, poems, proses, essays, etcetera. I own everything that's written here. If you want to post my works somewhere, please give credit to me.

Original stories are stories whose characters came from my mind. I own the character for those posts that have this tag.

Fan fic are my stories which stars my favorite Asian stars/anime characters/drama characters. I only own the stories, but not the characters (I do wish I own Calvin Chen and the rest of Fahrenheit... lol)

Roses are my short proses/stories. it may be written in first person's view or thrid person's view. It's just a narrative prose.

One-shots are my series of stories that are one chapter long. These are also tag as roses.

Actually, I was planning to make 25 short stories before my 25th birthday (which have already passed) and unfortunately, I wasn't too successful in making 25 short stories. I was panning to call it 25 roses, hence the tag roses here in my blog.

The Man-Hater - Chapter 12


Chapter 12 – You Win


In the end, there were two hearts that were hurting.
One, is that of the man-hater who learned to open her heart because of him.
And the other, is that of the playboy who have finally realized what it really is like to love a woman...

--

As soon as Rainie opened the door, Ella stormed inside the house. “Ella?” she called. She managed to see the tears in her eyes somehow, even though she ran away from her. She could only watch as Ella ran up to her room. “What happened?” Hebe asked, looking at Ella. Rainie let out a sigh. “I don't know... but I think this has something to do with a bastard named Wu Chun.” she said angrily. “Hey, let's not assume things here, all right? Maybe it has nothing to do with him.” Hebe said. “I have a strong feeling that he does!” Rainie said. Hebe shook her head, and then followed Ella up to her bed room. Rainie followed her as well.

As they opened the door of her room, they saw her lying on her bed, and they could hear her crying. “Ella?” Hebe asked. She walked up to her bed, and sat beside her. She brushed her hair to comfort her crying friend. “Ella... what's wrong?” she asked again. Ella sat up from her bed, and hugged Hebe. “It hurts, Hebe... it hurts...” she said as she cried. “It hurts to know... that... he only became close to me because of a dare... that he just used me... it really hurts...”

Rainie folded her arms, and was angered by what Ella said. “Wait, you mean to say that bastard became close to because of a dare?” she asked. Ella nodded her head slowly. “He... he had to make me fall in love for him in three months... or he'll lose his precious car to George. He... he did that because... because he wants to get back at me... for getting back at him... for hurting Rainie...” Ella said in between sobs. She buried her face on Hebe's shoulder, and then began to cry. “That bastard...” Rainie hissed. “Maybe Chun didn't mean to do that. I know he loves Ella so much, and he knows how she was hurt in the past. Chun will not do any stupid thing to hurt Ella.” Hebe said. “Knowing that jerk, of course he will just play with Ella's feeling. So much for his speech before! I knew he is just toying with our friend! It's enough that he played with my feelings before... but now that it's Ella... I can never forgive him for this!” Rainie said angrily. “I thought he love me... I really thought he did... that what he showed me... is real... damn I feel like a fool to believe him...” Ella said. Rainie let out a sigh, and then sat next to her. Ella turned to her, and hugged her. “I always tell you to guard your heart from him, Ella... look at what he did to you. He broke your heart as well. You knew from the start that he is a bastard.” Rainie said as she consoled her friend. “I... I knew that... I was wrong... I'm... I'm so sorry...” Ella said to her.

Rainie pulled her away, and looked at her friend in the eye. “Ella... you don't have to say sorry to me, all right? I knew this coming... and you... you just opened your heart to him right after you faced Ah Ru. It's just that, he's the wrong man for you, for me, for any girl. He isn't just the right guy that you should love, and definitely not the right guy to deserve you at all. He is the one that should be sorry, because he never understood how wonderful you are. He will find another you. Remember that.” she said. Ella wiped the tears from her eyes, and nodded her head. Rainie smiled at her. “You are much stronger than that, Ella. I know you. When Ah Ru left you, you just cried for a night, and then you moved on the next day. You should do that again. Prove to that bastard that you can live without him, that your world does not revolve around him. Prove to him that its his lost, not yours.” Rainie said. Ella smiled at her finally. “Yes. I'll prove to him that he's wrong that he messed up with the mighty Ella Chen.” she said. With that, the three friends laughed. The two hugged Ella, but as Ella held on to them and closed her eyes, the tears began to fall again.

--

And while Ella have found the courage to move on from all the things that happened with a little help from her friends, Chun, on the other hand, found himself alone at the bar, drinking himself to death. That night was supposed to be a happy night for him, he was looking forward to this night that he will propose to Ella. He was too close to having his happiness, and it was all ruined because Ella found out all about the dare.

“Hey, Chun... what are you doing here?” Show asked, sitting right next to Chun. He continued to sip his drink, ignoring his friend. “I thought tonight is the big night. Why are you sitting here all alone?” Mike asked. Chun looked at Mike, and let out a sigh. “Let me guess... Ella turned down your marriage proposal?” Show asked again. Chun shook his head. “Worst. She found out all about the bet. And she's mad at me. And she broke up with me.” Chun said. He let out a sigh as he lay his head on the table. “She broke up with me...” Chun said again sadly. He closed his eyes and bit his lips, trying his best not to cry in front of his friends. “She broke up with me...” he said again. Mike and Show looked at each other, and then turned to Chun. “Man, it's gonna be all right. Don't cry over her. Remember, it's girls that cry over Wu Ji Chun, not the other way around. It's just... a girl. You can find another one. There's a lot of fishes in the ocean, as they say. ” Show said. Chun sat up, and glared at him. “I don't want any other fish. If it's not Ella Chen, then I'd rather not be with anyone else. She is the only one I want, and need, all right?” he said angrily to him. Show lifted his hand to block himself in case the drunk Chun would attack him. “I get it, I get it. No need to be mad at me.” Show said.

Chun turned away from him, and finished up his drink. “I can't live without her. Hell, I don't even see myself without her... she's mad at me... I don't know what else to do to win her back.. maybe it would be better if I just die...” he said. “Man, don't be like that. Maybe you can talk to her when she calms down. Don't think of... you know... dying...” Mike said. Chun laid his head on the counter again. “I know her... when she's mad like that... she never give second chances... for her, we're over... I can't accept that... I can't... I want her so much in my life... I love her...” Chun said tearfully. “Maybe it is a good idea to commit suicide. At least if you do that, she'll feel sorry for you, and you win her back.” Show said. Mike glared at him. “Not a good idea, Show Luo.” he said. Show just rolled his eyes at his friend. Mike patted Chun's back, and as he looked up at him, he smiled. “Chun, don't worry... if you want, we can help you explain things to Ella. If you have to do those crazy things all over again to win her heart, we'll help you, all right? Don't drink yourself to death.” he said.

But Chun did not believe what he said. He just looked away from Mike, took his glass, and drink himself to death.

--

“Ella, since you and that bastard-which-must-not-be-named are over, I think it's time that you go out on a date.”

Ella's eyes widened at what Rainie said. “Me? Go out on a date?” she asked. Rainie nodded her head, and sat next to her. “I think it's a good chance for you to meet other people. And a good chance for you to meet the right guy for you.” she said. She let out a sigh, and leaned back on her chair. The thought of dating strangers makes her uncomfortable. “I don't know... maybe I should think about it?” she said. “All right, Ella. But make sure to say yes. Besides, I already arranged some dates for you.” Rainie said. Ella just let out a groan. “Fine... I will think about it.” she said.

--

“What do you want to order, Chun? Their cakes look delicious!” Mike said excitedly as he peeked at the glass display. Chun just stared at the kiwi cake on the display, and remembered the time when he ordered that cake for Ella. “Kiwi cake...” he muttered monotonously. “Yeah. I know you like kiwi cake. They said their kiwi cake is the best here.” Mike said. “Ella hates kiwi cakes. She's allergic to it. And I forgot... but I still ordered that to her... she got mad, and in the end, she dumped the cake on me...” he said. Mike turned to his zombie friend, and he could see that he was about to cry. Before a tear could fall from his eyes (and before he could make a scene at the cafe), he held his shoulders and turned him to face him.

“OK, buddy...” Mike said. “Listen to me. Just for today, do not, I repeat, do not think of Ella Chen, all right?” he said. “How could I not think about her? She's on my mind 24/7...” he said sadly. Mike sighed, and shook his head. “OK... then don't look at things that will remind you of her.” he said. Chun shook his head. “I can't. This is her favorite cafe. Do you know, she always comes here at 4 PM to have coffee? She loves cappuccino and cheesecakes...” he said. Mike took a deep breath, and counted to ten silently. He knew his friend is broken hearted, and he was trying his best to cheer him up, but it seems that Chun prefer to linger on his memories with Ella. “OK... do you want to go and eat somewhere else?” Mike asked. Chun shook his head. “Can we just eat here? Ella loves to eat here.” Chun said. “We can't. Especially if your mind is filled with Ella. And most especially, when you have that look in your face as if you want to cry. Now, gather yourself together, and move on.” Mike said.

Chun just let out a sigh. “Fine...” he said. As they turned to head the door, they saw Rainie and Hebe together. With the way Rainie looked at them, he knew both of them will be dead meet. Mike swallowed hard as Rainie got nearer to them. “Hurry up, Chun. Let's go...” Mike said, tugging his friend. “Hey, it's Rainie... she's Ella's best friend, did you know that? She was so protective of her...” Chun muttered. “I know that part, now, let's go.” Mike said, pulling him away. But still, Chun remained standing on his place as if waiting for Rainie to attack him. “Do you know... she, Hebe and Rainie have been friends since kindergarten. They were her only family, since her mom died...” Chun muttered again. “It's no time for some random Ella Chen trivias. Let's go, or you're gonna be dead!” Mike said.

“Wu Ji Chun!” Rainie shouted at them. She walked up to them, and as she reached them, she punched Chun in the face, making him fall on the floor. “Chun!” Mike exclaimed. He helped his friend up. “That is for breaking my best friend's heart, you bastard! I told you before, you break her heart I will definitely break you neck!” she shouted angrily at her. Chun sat up, and wiped the blood from his lips. “I know... I'm sorry...” he sad sadly. “Sorry?! Sorry?! Is that all you're gonna say? Let me tell you this, you jerk... my best friend deserve someone better. One day, she will find a man 1000 times much better than you! And you will regret why you ever hurt her! You don't deserve her at all, Wu Chun! You are a bastard!” she shouted at her again. After that, the two turned their backs on them, and left.

“Come on, buddy... let's go, all right?” Mike said as he helped him up. Chun is still in daze with what happened. “She will find another time 1000 times better than me... am I really that worse, Mike?” he asked. “Aiyo, Chun... forget what Rainie said. I still believe that you deserve Ella's love...” he said. “But I broke her heart... I don't know what came into me that I agreed to that bet... I wish I didn't do it...” he said. Then, he turned to Mike. “What will I do if he finds another man much better than me? What if she goes back to Ah Ru? Mike, I could not live without her, I really can't...” he said tearfully. With the way Chun looked, he knew that his friend will break down any time soon, and before that could happen, he pulled him out of the cafe.

--

Rainie tailed behind Ella as she walked around the living room. “Ella, listen to me... just this once... go out on a date with Gino...” she said. Ella sighed, and turned to Rainie. “Look, I don't even know this friend of yours...” she said. “That's why you have to go out on a date with him! So that you get to know him. He is a good man, Ella. Much better than Ah Ru and that bastard-which-must-not-be-named!” Rainie said.

Ella let out a sigh as she sat on the couch. It's just been merely two weeks since she found out about the dare, and since she broke up with Chun, but she's just not ready to go out on a date with another guy. She admits, she still have feelings left for Chun, but she could not just forgive him for what he did. “Ella, please... do this for me? It will take your mind off the situation for a while.” Rainie said. Ella looked at her friend, and saw her giving her puppy eyes. She let out a sigh, and finally nodded her. “All right...” she said. With that, Rainie shrieked with glee. “But...” she added. “just this once.”

--

Ella entered the restaurant, and looked around. At one corner, he saw a guy waving at him. She smiled at him, and the walked to his direction. The man stood up, and smiled at her. “Hi. You must be Ella?” he asked. Ella smiled back at him, and nodded her head. “And you're Gino?” she asked. He nodded his head. Then, he helped her to her seat. “Thank you...” she said. “I've been hearing a lot about you from Rainie. She's right, you're really pretty.” Gino said. Ella just laughed at what he said. “Thank you for the compliment.” she said. “I wish I could have met you before. I wonder why Rainie didn't tell me she have a pretty friend?” Gino said. Just then, the smile on her face slowly faded as she her mind drifted back to the the first time she met Chun.

[Flashback]
“So, where have you been all my life?” Chun asked her as she held her hand. Ella let out a fake flirty laugh. “What a lame pickup line! I'm probably hiding from you?” she thought. “You're such a charmer! I don't even know what your name is...” she said. Chun smiled at her. “I'm Chun. Wu Ji Chun. And you are...”
“I'm Chen Jia Hua.”
“So, Hua... do you believe in love at first sight?”
“Why do you ask?”
“Because when you walked in to that door, I found myself spending the rest of my life with you...”
[End of Flashback]

“So, shall we order?” Gino asked. Ella snapped out of her thoughts, and looked up at Gino, and nodded her head. “OK...” she said. She took the menu, and read it. “So, what do you want to eat, Ella? I heard their steak here is the best.” Gino said. “I'll go with the steak...” Ella said, still reading the menu. Gino called on the waiter to make their order. “Two beef steaks for me and the lady here, and for dessert...” He looked at the menu again to check on their desserts. “Ella, I understand that you're allergic to kiwi cakes, right? Is blueberry cheesecake cool with you?” he asked.

Ella found herself staring up at Gino. With the mention of kiwi cake, she suddenly remembered another incident involving Wu Chun.

[Flashback]
“Oh, hi Ella.” he said cheekily. Ella could only let out an evil smile at him. “Hello Mr. Wu. I don't know if you're stalking me, and wanting to kill me.” she said. Chun gave her a confused look. “Why would I want to kill you?” he asked. “Because you sent me a kiwi cake.”
“So?”
“I am allergic to kiwis.”
He felt as if someone poured cold water on him. He forgot that she is allergic to kiwis. He flinched as he let out an embarrassed smile. “I... I didn't know... I'm sorry...” he said. Ella glared at him. “Now, you know.” she said. Then, she dumped the cake over his head.
[End of Flashback]

Ella stared into nothingness. She could hear Gino talking, but her mind is not absorbing everything he was saying. There would be a time that he would pause, to ask her if she's all right, and she would just give her a blank stare and nod her head.

She still loves Chun.

As much as she wants to hate him for playing with her feelings, she still loves that jerk. She realized that this night seems to bore the hell out of her. Gino is not Chun, he will never be. He isn't as funny as he is, not without the corny pickup lines he always says. He maybe complimenting her, but only Chun could flatter her in a way that she could feel ever so beautiful and blush like a giddy school girl. He maybe as handsome as Chun, but he doesn't have the boyish smile that Chun have, which makes her weak in the knees.

She doesn't want to be with anyone else, but Chun.

And as she had that realization, a familiar song was played all over the place. A song, which was sung to her by Chun when he was still chasing her.

Don't be afraid
I can meet you half way
We cant always know
Where the road ends up
But with some luck
I know we can go
Where-ever we imagine

It was Chun that's doing all the chasing. It was him who met her, not just half-way though, but the whole way. It was Chun who did all the craziest and most impossible thing at her request. He brought Calvin back to her, so that she could find out the truth and finally moved on. He spent a night in jail because of her, and almost ended up being harassed by gay prisoners. He dressed up as a girl at her request, not minding the ridicule or being harassed by some perverts. It was Chun, only Chun, that would do everything to make her smile.

You ought to see
All your heroes in me
But if we get wise
We can break the walls we make
And you can see in my eyes
Whatever we imagine...

He stood up for her. He protected her, he cared for her. Looking back, she finally realized that all the things he did before, it's because he truly loves her. It's not about having her on her bed. She was on his bed a few times, but never did he touch her or forced her. He changed because of her, and she was too blinded by her anger not to realize all these things.

[Flashback]
“Look, I don't know why you hate me, or all other guys for that matter. But let me prove to you that I am way better than that Calvin guy...”

---
“I can also make impossible things possible, Ella...”

---

“I'm not always a jerk. Besides, how can I make love to someone who is dead drunk and have been crying all through the night? It won't be that fun.”

---

“Have I told you that you're the most beautiful girl in this room?”
“How many times have you used that pickup line?”
“Don't you believe me?”
“You are a playboy, Chun. Do you expect me to believe that I am the first person you told me that?”
“For tonight, yes.”
“So, I should expect that by the end of the night, I'll be hearing you say that line to half the girls in this room?”
“No.”
“Or, should I expect that I'll be calling Rainie to pick me up here at the hotel, for you'll be going home with some random girls.”
“No.”
Ella let out another smirk at him. “Shut up. You think I'll fall for that I-only-have-my-eyes-on-Ella-Chen attitude of yours?” she asked.. “I'm not expecting you to fall for it. I'm expecting you to believe it, actually.”
Do you have an idea that it would take you more than this beautiful gown, or this fancy party to win my heart?”
“Yes. And I'm willing to do the most impossible and the craziest thing that you ask of me, Ella.”

---

“It's all about being with someone I can't live without.” he said. Then, he let out another boyish smile. “So, of all those girls you dated before, you never felt that you can't live without them?” she asked. Chun nodded his head. “I only felt that with you...” he said.

--

“Despite what you said to Joanne, I'm still wishing that you can need me the way that I need you, that you will want me as much as I want you. But don't worry, I won't give up. I will work hard so that you will realize that what I feel for you is real.”

---

“I have always loved you, and I don't care whatever it is that happened to you in the past. If you just give me the chance, I can help you mend your broken heart and your broken soul...”

---

I love you. I really do, Ella. If I have to make a fool of myself right here, right now... just to prove my point, I will. You know I will. All I'm asking is for you to believe. I never felt this way with anyone before... just with you...”

---

“I have more than enough love for the two of us, Ella...”

---

“When do you think will you get tired of me?” she asked. “When I turn 101, I guess.” Chun said.

---

“So, what if I fall for you?” she asked. Chun let out a smile at her. “Then, I'll catch you when you fall.” he said. “And the chase is over?” she asked. Chun shook her head. “It will just be the beginning.” he said.

---

“Wait... why are you asking me about my dream house. You are the one going to build the house here. What kind of house do you like anyway?” she asked. Chun smiled at her, and then looked at the lot. “Anything... as long as you're inside that house... it's my dream home.” he said.
[End of Flashback]

“Ella, are you all right?” she heard Gino asked. Ella looked up at him, and shook her head. “I... I'm sorry, Gino...” she said. She immediately stood up from her seat. “I... I can't do this. I really can't. There's someone else...”

She was expecting Gino to be mad at her, but then, she was surprised to see him smile. “I know. You still love him, right?” he asked. Ella nodded her head. “I knew it. I knew it with that look on your face. Don't worry, I understand, Ella. Go and chase after him. Tell him how you feel before it's too late.” Gino said. With that, Ella smiled at him. “Thank you, Gino...” she said. “Thank you for understanding...”

--

Chun sat alone on his favorite sport at his favorite bar. As he finished his first drink that night, he took the small velvety box from the table, and stared at it. It still contained the ring he was suppose to give to Ella - the wedding ring that will prove his undying love for her. But because of the stupid dare he made with his friends, everything ended abruptly. He was still wishing that one day, he would be able to give Ella that ring.

If there's such a thing as one great love, then Ella would be the greatest love of his life. He have done crazy thing, and endured being a fool just to be with her. He have never felt this way with any other girls. He could never love another woman, as much as he loved her. And no one would ever come close to her at all.

Maybe it's impossible for now to have Ella back in his life. Time will have to ease all the hurt she is feeling, and erase the bad memories she had of him. He doesn't know if he would be thankful with that bet or not. If he did not agree to that bet, he would not met such a wonderful woman. Maybe, if he didn't took that challenge, he would still be the same old Chun – living a lonely life and trying to be happy in the arms of different girls each night. He will still be the same Chun that will never know what love exactly is. He will be the same Chun that goes to this bar every after work to flirt with all the single ladies. He loved who he became to be when Ella came into his life. He loved himself more now, because there was this one woman whom he loved so much.

But then, that dare also ruined the two of them together. George have already apologized to him, and explained to him the reason how Ella might have found out all about it. Joanne forced him to tell her about the bet, and in return, Joanne told Ella about it. There's nothing he could do now to control the damage. Things that happened have already happened.

“Hey Chun, you're alone tonight? Want me to be your date?”

He looked beside him, and saw a girl flirting with him. He smiled faintly at her, and shook his head. “Sorry, but I just want to be alone.” he said. The girl left her alone to drink. Since he met Ella, the thought of flirting with other girls never came into his mind anymore. He just wanted to be with Ella, ont some random girls.

Ella entered the bar, and as expected, she found Chun in there. He was alone in at the counter, drinking his favorite drink. As she saw the girl walk up to him, she wanted to turn back, and leave, but then she saw him turn the girl down. She let out a smile as she took a deep breath to gather all his courage to approach him. Maybe Chun is mad at her as well, after all, she refused to listen to his side of story. But now, she is more than willing to listen to him. She is ready to forgive him, to forget everything and start anew with him. He is the only man she loves, and if its not Chun, she doesn't want anyone else.

“Chun...” she called.

That familiar voice made him froze in his place. Maybe he drank to much, that he was hearing Ella calling him. “It can't be Ella...” she thought. “Chun...” she called again. This time, he turned back too find Ella walking up to her. “Ella!” he exclaimed. He was too happy to see her. He wanted to pull her to him, and hug her tight, but he was scared that she would beat the hell out of him if he does that.

“I came... to find you...” Ella said as she walked up to him. “Look, it doesn't matter what happened in the past, all right? I... I love you, and... if I got mad, you know that I have all the reasons to be mad at you. I... I thought you played with my feelings because you agreed to that bet....” she said. Chun shook his head. “No... no, you don't understand. I conceded to George. I gave him my car to end the bet. I lose, Ella. I lose because I fell in love with you first. You won... you won my heart. Yes, I admit, I have bad intentions before, but the more that I get to know you, I realized that I am falling helplessly in love with you... to the point that I can't see myself not being with you. Each second that I'm not with you, it felt like a year. It was a bad thing to agree to that dare. But if I didn't, I wouldn't be able to get to know you more...” he said. Ella continued to walk towards him as he speaks. “You see, you challenge me. You made me feel all kinds of emotions all at the same time. I was mad at you, and yet I find myself being amused by you. You hurt my physically, but any other way, I wouldn't want anyone else to kick me in the groin like that but you.” he continued. He let out a nervous laugh, and Ella could only smile at him.

“I love you, Ella. That's the only thing I know right now. I only see myself being with you. And if it's not you... then I can go to hell... because heaven is not heave without you...” he said. Ella let out a smirk at him. “That's the lamest line I've heard from you.” she said. “Can you blame me? My life was... lame without you.” he said. She walked up to him, and smiled at her. “Me too... the two weeks I wasn't with you... it's worse than hell...” she said. He put his hands on her waist, and then leaned down to her. “I love you, Ella. Will you take me back? Will you give me another chance to make things right?” he asked. “Only if you promise not to mess up this time. This is your last chance.” she answered. Then, he leaned much closer to her and kissed her on the lips. And kissed her again, and again, and again...

Of course, we heard the playboy tell the man-hater those three little words, but should we end this story without the man-hater telling those words to him as well? Of course not.

It was an ordinary day. Things are going well to everyone else. Ella is out to have lunch with her two best friends, when suddenly, the people going inside the building where she is working suddenly started to hand her a long-stemmed lavender rose. “What's going on?” she asked Hebe and Rainie. The two just shrugged their shoulders. “Beast me.” Hebe said. “It may be the work of that bastard boyfriend of yours.” Rainie said. Hebe laughed, while Ella gave her a glare. “Rainie, please be nice to Chun, all right?” she said. Rainie rolled her eyes at her. “Whatever.” she said.

The people continued to give her lavender roses, and as she was halfway through the stairs, she saw Chun, Show and Mike downstairs. Just like before, Show had a guitar on his hand, and was starting to play her favorite song.

Don't be afraid
I can meet you half way
We cant always know
Where the road ends up
But with some luck
I know we can go
Where-ever we imagine

Why should we wait
Later on maybe too late
Cause where can we run
When you see there's half a chance
That we might really become
Whatever we imagine

And I imagine you and me
Just taking shots at what we see
And if we falter
Take away the dust
And just outlast them all

You ought to see
All your heroes in me
But if we get wise
We can break the walls we make
And you can see in my eyes
Whatever we imagine

And I imagine you and me
Just taking shots at what we see
So let the walls go down
And we can try it again
Cause nobody can stop us now

Dont be afraid
Cause I'll meet you half way
You're not far behind
If we climb this hill
I know there's still a chance we can find
Whatever we imagine in our life

Ella could only laugh as Chun was struggling to sing her favorite song. She felt herself blushing with the way Chun looked at her. As the song ended, he walked up to her, and then handed her a bouquet of lavender roses. “For you.” he said. Ella smirked at him. “So, what stupid thing have you done this time?”
“Do I always have to do something stupid whenever I give you roses?”
“Let's just say that I love assuming things.”
“Then, stop assuming things, because whether you like it or not, I will give you roses everyday, for the rest of our lives.”

With that, Ella smiled at him. “OK...” she said, taking the bouquet of roses from her hand. “Oh, and one more thing, Ella...” Chun said. He took one rose from the bouquet, and took something from its inside. It was a solitary diamond ring. Ella was surprised to see that ring on his hand. Before he could say anything, he knelt down before her. “Ella Chen Jia Hua, I love you. I want to be with you forever and ever. Will you marry me, and be with me forever?” he asked. Ella's jaw dropped at his answer. She looked around her, and everyone was cheering on her to say yes. “I... I love you too, Chun. Yes, I will marry you.” she said. With that, there was another loud cheer from the crowd. He slid the ring on her finger, and stood up to hug her.

“You know, it's like music to my ears when you say that...” Chun said to her. Ella gave her the confused look. “Say what?” she asked. Chun looked at her, and smiled. “Say that you love me too...” he said. Ella could only smile at him as well. “Of course... I do... I love you, Chun.” said said to him. He leaned down to her, and kissed her lips. “I love you too, Ella. I love you more than you love me.” he said. Then, he pulled her close to him, and hugged her tight.

This time, he will never ever let her slip away.


THE END
