Once upon a time, there was this girl who's so in love with her boyfriend. After 3 years of courtship, suddenly she found out that something has changed in her relationship with her bf. He was not as loving to her as before. She tried to dismiss all suspicions but to no avail.
One day, she 'forced' the bf to tell her what the problem was. He didn't want to say anything. Kept insisting that nothing's wrong. A few days after that, he took her to a coffee shop and broke the news to her. He told her that they are not ngam for each other. She thought, "Not ngam?!" Not ngam then what were those 3 years of courtship??
She just couldn't accept the fact that her relationship was over. She spent days and nights crying over him. Friends console her but just couldn't make her feel better. She went and begged him not to leave her. But he was adamant. He said, "It's too late..." and ordered a packet of Salem. She was stunned. Because he never smoked before. Well, not in front of her, obviously.
He started puffing away. They had early dinner that day. But of course, nothing went down her tummy that night. She was...
After that evening, she schemed about how to get back at him. (Not how to get him back.) She had 1001 plans in her mind. But nothing was put to action.
Because sometime after that, she learnt that while she was with him, he brought home some Mama-san from nightclubs. She couldn't believe her ears when one of his friends told her. She was horrified and thought, "How could he had done that to her?!" But reality was, he did that. She also learnt later that he got together with his clerk. Their relationship lasted quite a number of years but in the end, he left dumped her too.
Another few years down the road, she learnt that he got married to a Shanghainese lady. One fine day, out of the blue, he called her. At that time, the last they met was 6-7 years ago. They agreed to go for dinner that night.
She was nervous of course. She didn't know what to expect. He came to pick her up in a cab because he was just stopping by for the night. He looked the same, some things just don't change. They caught up on old times and went for some drinks after dinner, then it was time to go home.
On the way home, he asked her to give him another chance. Of course she was shocked. She thought, "It's been a long time and now he wants a second chance?!"
Without thinking, she looked at him and said, "No."
This time, he was shocked. Then, he gave her a very sad look. He even begged her. He was persistent but she stood firm. He looked out the window, holding her hands. She looked at him and kept quiet. He kissed her hands, just like how he used to when they were together. The journey back home was an unusually long one.
Before she got down from the car, he asked her again, "Are you sure?"
She replied, "Yes, I am..." and got down from the car. She never looked back again...
So how was my storytelling skills??
Nolah, the reason was because I wanted to share this other song by Blue Lagoon, the German euro-pop band! Another cover song, What Becomes of The Broken Hearted. This is the latest cover for this song. Another cover of the same song was done by Westlife in year 2000. The original singer was Jimmy Ruffin who sang the song in 1966. Here are the three versions of the song. My favourite is of course the one by Blue Lagoon laaa... Enjoy!
