It was raining, and the whole sky looked gray. Susie looked a little dispirited, she had just made a decision.
Susie sent a message to her boyfriend Alvin. She told him to eat dinner in the seaside restaurant together at six tonight. She decided to part with Alvin. She is congenial to Alvin’s tastes, and feel happy with him. But his economic condition is poor. He had neither house nor deposit and only had a second-hand car. She felt their future is not guaranteed. In addition, her parents opposed that she marry Alvin and chose several blind dates for her.
It was almost half past five, Alvin would pick her up at five forty. She slicked up herself and went out. Alvin’s car was already waiting there. It was thundering and lighting. Alvin talked about his planning of their future all the way, but she just chimed in with a few words.
When they have dinner, Alvin always order dishes she likes. This night he still did so. Susie looked at those dishes feeling grieved ineffably. She did not want to tell him her decision now, because she did not want to destroy the atmosphere.
After dinner, they walked on the beach and held hands. The waves were very big and the ocean winds were quite heavy. Susie was thinking how to tell him the decision. Suddenly they found the sea began to reverse quickly and there was a huge white water wall at the sea level rushing toward them with a roar. They realized it is a tsunami, Alvin held her hand and ran toward their car in the street like crazy. People were all in a panic and the street was in a mess. They could already see their car, however they were submerged by the big wave. Susie felt asphyxiated and dizzy. Alvin were still holding her hand even if the wave segregated they strongly.
After the tsunami, Susie found herself lying on a board and Alvin was comatose beside her holding her hand. She was strongly touched and tears burst out of her eyes.
Soon they were rescued by the recovery aircraft. After the doctor’s treatment, Alvin came to his senses. They hugged each other tightly. “ I have a big decision that I want to tell you,” Susie said, “ Will you marry me?”
Girls, you do not have to marry a rich man, but be sure to marry a man who can hold your hand in need and never let you go!
