He is my best friend, my pillar and the most important person in my life; he is my boyfriend: Shi Wei. He moved me, showing his affection greatly through his actions. I remembered there were a couple of times when I was so sick, he stood by me and monitor my recovery. There was once when my tonsils were severely infected that I was not able to talk or swallow any food. Every meal was a torture. Everyday he would buy some food for me to consume, and I would eat a few mouthfuls and leave the rest of the meal untouched. My weight decreased from 52kg to about 43kg within a week or so. Additionally, whenever it was medicine time, I would cry as the tablets made it way down my throat painfully. He made it into powder form and it tasted so bitter that my body would reject the medicines by making me puke. He would comfort and encourage me when I wanted to vomit the tablet out of my throat. And he would give me a tight hug and praise me when I was able to swallow the tablet. On another occasion, in the night time, I was having hyperventilation and fever at the same time. The ambulance was called and he rushed over to my place upon hearing that I was unwell. The medics sent me to the hospital but the ambulance can only sit one family member and so he took a cab down and stayed outside with my father through sunrise. I needed to be warded and he stayed with me, while my dad has to go back to head for work.
Yet on another occasion, when I was about to turn in, I felt the sudden urge of vomiting and I rushed to the kitchen. I text his phone to inform him and he rushed over to my place to check on me. The several times of vomiting made me really sick in the stomach and feeling weak. He was worried and rushed me to a 24hr clinic. He put up with the weird look of the cab driver when I was holding on to my stomach that was cramped from the throwing up. The doctor stated that it was the gastric cramps and gave me an injection. He held on to my hand knowing that I fear the needle-pinch. When we reached my place, I threw up yet again when I took my medicines and he held on to the plastic bag as I puked. It was 4am in the morning and my parents were getting ready to go to work. I went to sleep and he stayed with me to make sure that he was there if I needed help as no one is at home.
Other than staying with me when I was sick, he was there too when I was going through a tough time in my studies. I had so many projects that I almost wanted to quit my studies. However, he would provide me the help that I needed and gave creative suggestions. A few times he stayed late to assist me with the preparation of my projects that were due the next day. Furthermore, he knew how much I detest lizards and I have to admit that my house has quite a few lizards greeting me in the wee hours in the night. As usual, he always sends me back home in the night. One night, an hour after he went off, I wanted to shower when there was a huge lizard crawling on the floor. I freaked out and hairs were standing on its ends. I called him and he has already bathed and preparing to turn in. However, he made his way down again just to kill that lizard for me, so that I was able to go and take a shower. A few of my encounters with lizards, he will surely made his way down to chase it off or if necessary kill it (that was my preference which he did not want to.) I would say that I am bliss to have a boyfriend who is so loving, affectionate, and one that stood by me when no one does. We have been together for coming 4 years and I know we will surely walk the aisle and have a beautiful future. I love you, Sweetheart.
