Lost In Daydreams...

Have you ever thought about what you actually went through when you simply froze and stared in the moment, not just blinking even once... your emotions slowly drift away...your soul detached subtly from your body... And when it hit you, you shook your head once or twice, it rushed back to your body and felt alive again... then you thought to yourself... "What was i thinking about just now?"

Death In Half And The Whole Body

Ploy was spending the school holiday with his grandparents in their home far from the city. He brought with him ideas he had acquired from school.

One day, he asked "Grandpa, could you tell me where my computer game is?"

"Sorry, dear child. I don't even know the word Computer. How can I tell you where it is located?" replied Grandpa.

"Oh, sorry to hear that, Grandpa. You should upgrade your memory system and make it high-tech, so you will go with the times," Ploy said. "You don't even know the word computer, you seem to be dead in half of your body," he continued.

Later on the same day, Ploy and his grandpa went to the pagoda by boat. Halfway there the boat began to take in water very fast, and looked like it would sink in the deepest part of the river.
"What are we going to do, Grandpa? I don't know how to swim" said a very scared Ploy who began to cry.

His grandpa began laughing and said to his grandson, "I don't know what the computer is: I'll die in just half of my body. But you don't know how to swim. If the boat sinks, you will die, not in just half, but in your whole body."

A Sad Love Story Without Title ( 3 )

Since he has disappeared, I live like the one who has lost everything in life. Everytimes I passed that we first met, my tears always fell down. I know that I miss him so much, I really miss him alot. At nights, I always keep looking at the beautiful sky and the stars alone. "when you miss me, just look at the stars. I will be somewhere else looking at the stars and missing you too. " That's what he used to tell me.

On valentine day 2007, I waited for him to come to meet me and ask me the same question that he always ask but.. that was the most disappointed day in my life. He used to tell me that he will never give up, he will show me that he really love me, but why he choose to leave me secretly like this ?

2 months later, my family moved to live in another house. However, I always come to wait him in front of my old house every morning hoping to see him one day but I still cannot see him.

On 11th June 2007, my family went to visit thailand. While I was sitting in the airport waiting for the plane to leave, I suddenly saw him. He was coming from another country. My heart started to beat very fast. I ran toward him but..... I saw another girl ran to hug him and gave him a bunch of flowers. That girl used to be my classmate at high school. Her name is Chenda. I didn't know how they knew each other but they looked very sweet. They smiled at each oher. I could do nothing but watched them leaving the airport together.

He used to tell me that he didn't like to play game with love. He used to tell me that he want to live with me forever but now he made me cry. I felt I could not breath. It was really hurt to see the one we love being with another girl, but at least I could know that now he can live happily.

Since that day, I always tell myself not to think about him anymore. I try to study much harder and keep myself busy so that I do not have time to think about him. I try to lie myself that I do not love him anymore but his sweet smile always appear in my thinking everytimes I close my eyes.

As I am a year-2-student at medical faculty, i have to study at calmette hospital every mornings as a trainee. One day, I saw an unconscious man sent to the hospital because of the traffic accident. I was very shocked when I see that man's face because that was him, the man whom I try to forget.

His family came to the hospital as soon as they got the news. Chenda also came with them and I just knew that in fact, Chenda is his sister. I felt very sorry for everything that happened. He was survive but he was still unconscious. I always go into his room when there's no one in there. I looked at his white face, I held his cold hand and I talked with him. He used to be a talkative man but now he cannot talk anymore. i wish I could go back to the past.

Chenda told me that he had accident because he was drunk. He always drink every nights since he came back from Japan. Actually, he went to continue his study in Japan because he wanted to forget a girl he love but after leaving Cambodia afor 6 months, he felt that he could not forget her so he came back to find her but she had moved to another house and he could not find her. After that, he always drink every days just to forget her. Chenda told me everything but she didn't know that the girl whom he loves is me.

After a long time, he became conscious again but he cannot remember anything including everything that happened to him, his background, his family and... me. After what happened, I became close with him and Chenda. We usually go out together and later on, we became best friend. On 30th december 2007, we went to kampongsom to countdown for new year together. That night, Chenda went to sleep early andleft me and him sitting on the beach and watch the stars together.

Then, he looked at my neacklace, the one he gave to me on my birthday on 2004. He said "this necklace is very beautiful. It looks familiar to me. I think I used to see it somewhere before. "
" My boyfreind gave it to me on my birthday"
"why don't you ask him to come here with us ? ""
I looked into his eyes, then to the stars and said nothing.
"sorry if I remind you siomething that might upset you"
"he's not here anymore

We stopped talking for awhile. Suddenly, he whispered " birthday.... ". Then, he contiued " Today is 31st december. It is her birthday. Today is her birthday. I used to look at the stars with her on her birthday"
I was very excited to hear that. I asked " you can remember now ? ''
He looked into my eyes and he whispered "Cinderella.. you are my Cinderella. "

My tears fell down. I hugged him tightly. He can remember me now. That was the best gift for my birthday. Since then, we always go out together as sweetheart. Most of our friends were getting jealous of us and they said we were the sweetest couple they have ever seen.

However, happiness cannot last for long time. On 14th february 2008, I expect to receive 11 red roses from him, I expect him to ask me the question he always ask me, I expect to tell him " I love you and I will love you forever. '' but what happened is very different from what I had expected. He came to meet me with a bunch of yellow roses. I looked at his face and waited for him to explain me.

"sorry " he said " I think I might make you hurt but I dón't want to lie you anymore. Since I remember everything again, I felt I have changed alot. My feeling for you is not the same as before. When I stay near you, I do not feel love anymore. I don't know why. I could not tell you the truth bcause I don't want to hurt you but I know that I cannot lie you forever. I hope you can forget me. please think that I am not in this world anymore. "
"is that the real reason? "

"we cannot become like before ?"
"all good feeling that I used to have has gone. No matter how hard you try, it cannot come back "
"you have another girl ?"

"I can swear I have no one. What I tell you is the truth"
"I believe in you"
I turned back and walked away from him. he shouted "I hope we are still friend. You are my best friend"
Millions of tears fell down from my eyes. " you are my best friend" I hate this word so much. I don't want to hear it. I hope it was just a dream. That valentine day was the most painful day for me. I know that I cannot live without you but if letting you go can make you happy, I can do it for you. One thing that I can understand is that loving someone is not to hold that person tight but to give him freedom and let him do whatever he want to. To see the one we love being happy is is our real happiness even though that happiness is the result of our hurt. One day, I might feel regret to let you go but I will never feel regret to love you.

A Sad Love Story Without Title ( 2 )

A story from my friend...

On valentine day 2005, we went out together. It was the 82nd day that we have known each other and I also had received 82 roses from him but on that valentine day, he gave me a bunch of 11 red roses and a big lovely bear. He said " since I know you, I always give you yellow rose which means " good friend " but today I give you red rose which mean " I love you " and 11 roses mean " I want to live with you forever ".. Do you love me ? "

I said nothing. He looked at my face then he continued " I like to play alot but I don't play with love. If you cannot answer me now, it is ok. Just take my flowers and answer me later when you know your feeling. I will wait for your answer. "

I told him everything about myself. In fact, I used to have a pain my heart. I used to love a man so much and I did everything for that love but finally I can get only tears and hurt. That made me really getting scared of love. He told me that he will makmake me feel secure with his love. He wil show me that he loves me real and he won't give up.

Then, every mornings, I always receive 1 red rose from him every mornings with a card written " I love you "

Time pass.. We still continue like this. Since we have known each other, we have never argued with each other. We always happy when we stay near each other. We always spend our holidays being together. He always come in front of my house at midnight on my birthday to say Happy Birthday to me and watch the stars with me. He always celebrate my birthday for me. On valentine day, he always give me 11 red roses with a big lovely bear and ask me the same question.. but I have never said " I love you " to him yet even though I can feel that ... I love him...

On 31st december 2006, he came in front of my house at midnight and say happy birthday to me as usual but he didn't talk alot as usual. That afternoon, he took me out. While riding motor, he said " when I decide to do something, I always tell myself 'that I will success but maybe this is my first failure. "
" what do you mean ? "
I asked
" one day, if I cannot stay near you, promise me that you will live happily and forget your past. Not all boys are bad. Not all boys play with your love. Promise me that you will be strong. "
" where do you want to go ? "

" I just tell you in case I cannot stay near you "
He always like kidding alot but that was the first time that I see him talking seriously with sad face.
" what's wrong with you ? "
" when you miss me, just look at the stars. I will be somewhere else looking at the stars with you and missing you too "
I try to asked him what happen but he didn't tell me. I felt very Nervous. I have never thought about that. What should I do if I don't have him in my life ?

That day, it rained very hard. We ride motor under the rain. I hug him tightly. He held my hand. I slept on his shoulders. It is very cold but I felt very warm inside my heart. I closed my eyes and I wish the time stop there.

The following morning, I was very anxious waiting for him to come to my house and give me red rose as usual but... I could not see him. I waited him full day.. from morning till night.. from days to days.. But he is disappeared.. Since that day, I didn't get any rose from him and I have never seen him again. I can do nothing without him. I can only count the rose and the cards that he gave me.. There are 82 yellow roses, 788 red roses, and 768 cards.. I really miss him so much. I need to see his smile. I need to hear his voice. I need to see him wink at me. I want to tell him that I love him. It is the answer that he waited to hear for long time. I don't know where he is now but I want to shout to let him know that I love him even though it might be too late now, even though he might don't want to hear it anymore.

Can you guess Where the man has gone ? On valentine day 2007 and 2008, did he come to meet her and give her 11 red roses as usual ? ON 31st december 2007, did he come to celebrate her birthday for her? Want to know what happen at the end of the story ? I'll tell you later :)

A Sad Love Story Without Title ( 1 )

This is not true story. I got it from my friend. Please read for fun and give a title for this story.

One day, while riding motor from school to my house, it started to rain very hard so I stopped under a building to wait for the rain stop. There's also another man standing there waiting with me too. I waited maybe 1 hour but the rain still continued. I wanted to call to my parents telling them not to worry but there's no credit in my phone so I walked to the man standing near me, gave him a sweet smile, started the conversation with him and borrowed his phone to call to my mother.He laughed and told me I am a clever girl. He said when I saw him at first sight, I stared at him but when I wanted to borrow his phone, I smiled at him. Then he told me that if I wanted to borrow his phone, I must tell him my phone number. I said " no way " and then I walked away from him. He laughed again. Then he walked after me and let me borrow his phone.

When the rain stopped, I went to my house and he followed me. When I arrived at my house, he shouted " Hey you owe me your phone number. You haven't told me yet. Come to my dream tonight and tell me your phone number na pretty girl " . I said " toil yu tech " and then enter my house. He is a nasty and funny boy. I felt very good when I knew him. I kept smiling while I walked into my house. Then, while I was having dinner, he called to my mother's number. He asked my mother to let him talk with me.

He said " hey girl don't think that I am a bad boy who love girl easily. It's not my mistake. It's because you are lovely, clever and nasty. If I didn't love her, I would be very regret in the future. Now I fall in love with you heuy so can you tell me your phone number ? "

I answered " I am a person who like to answer the question straightly. If you ask me what my phone number is, I will tell you but now you ask me if I can tell you or not.. The answer is : No I can't "
He said " ok now I ask you what is your phone number ? "
I replied " too late "

The following morning, I saw him standing in front of my house waiting for me with a yellow rose. He came to me and said " oh lady you get up so late. I've been standing here waiting for you for long time. You are very lazy girl but it doesn't matter because when you become my wife, I will hire many servants for you. " He said that and wink to me. I replied " if I knew you stand here waiting for me, I would get up later than this " He laughed, looked at his watch then he shouted " oh my god ! I will be late at school. The teacher will blame me. Here take this rose. I buy it for you "

I didn't take the rose from him so he put it in my hand, started to leave quickly and shouted " if the teacher blame me because being late caused by waiting a pretty girl as you, it doesn't matter for me " he said and wink again. I really wanted to laugh so much but I tried to act normal and laughed alone when he had already gone.

Since then, he always came to wait me in front of my house with 1 yellow rose every mornings. He kept asking me going out with him but I always refused untill one saturday, I saw him sitting in my house with my mother. They both talked and laughed. I was very surprised to see that. I thought " yee ta pek nis ey kor hean mes "

My mother told me that I study alot, I should go out with him to relax. He wink at me, then stood up, smiled to my mother and said " cinderella in the story must come home before 12 o'clock but this cinderella will come home before 6 o'clock. I promised with you auntie "

I thought " min deng jong yey pi ey, lop lop sdab kom ory ta yul " . He always call me cinderella. He might think that he is the prince as well. That day, I went out with him 1st time. He took me to eat something , then to play game and ride ski at sorya and to riverside. I had a very great time with him. When he took me home, he asked me " hey lady ! Can you tell me your phone number yet ? "

I answered " tonight in your dream, I will tell you "
He said " ok from now I will stop ask you forever but one day, you will tell me By yourself and you will even ask me my phone number "
I said " dek jam tov jeung "
He wink to me again. He is very good at winking. Later, we started to go out more often.

On 31st december 2004, it's my birthday. I've never celebrated my birthday because my family don't like it. On the day before my birthday, I felt very lonely and unhappy. I could not sleep when I thought that the following day is my birthday but at midnight, when I looked down from my house to the street, I saw him standing in front of my house, smiling to me and pointed to his phone as a sign of asking me to listen to my mother's phone. The first thing I heard from him was " happy birthday to you oun sam lanh "

I was very surprised and wonder how he could know my birthday but I tried to keep that feeling and asked him " who is your oun sam lanh ? "
He replied " you are my future wife so I call you oun sam lanh from now so that you can get used to with this word after we married. Is it ok oun sam lanh ? "
I asked " it is midnight now. Why don't you go to your house ? "
" Because I know that someone is lonely tonight so I come here to stay near her and hope to make her smile "
" she must be very unlucky to have a person like you stay near her "
" but I will stay near her forever and I will make her become the happiest girl in this world "

" Ja rek you kae leng ban heuy "
" haha come on baby girl, don't angry alot and don't keep looking at my handsome face. I'm so shy "
" mer muk mnus jkourt "
" look at the sky baby. The stars are very bright tonight "

I looked at the sky and he contined " I want to watch the stars on this beautiful sky with the one I love every nights. I hope I can have a chance to take care the one I love, look after her and do everything for her ". That night we talked and watched the stars full night. In the afternoon, he came to take me out. He celebrated a birthday party for me. On the cake written the word " Forever Promise " . He also gave me a necklace which has my name on it. I spent my birthday with him and it was the happiest day of my life.
