During high school, I was doing really good and I had my eye on this girl. Her name is Chung Lien and she was the top of my class with me a close second behind her. But she never noticed anyone around her, always preoccupied with grades.
One day I inched my way next her as she was studying and I guess I stared awkwardly enough that she finally looked up at me.
And me, being the smooth operator that I was in high school, well…
… kinda just looked back without saying a word.
Finally I asked her out in the cheesiest way possible, her father approved since he worked with my dad and I was alongside her with grades. We had our whole future planned out; we’d go to Harvard together since I was recruited to try out for an American football scholarship and she would be pursuing her doctorate in Gynecology.
But, one day my leg broke in a skirmish practice and I lost my chance for the try out that would have led me to the rest of my life. I couldn’t go on athletic scholarship. Which was fine, until one of my closest friends committed suicide promptly two weeks after.
Suddenly life wasn’t lining up perfectly with my plan. I went into depression, and soon my grades started dropping until I barely passed to walk at graduation. I soon asked Lien to break up, since I was only holding her back from her future.
She didn’t leave without a fight. I loved that about her.
It was a year or two after moving out, I was still in my slump until I met Emma in the city. She told me I was good-looking and offered me a job that payed well if I worked hard enough. When I walked her to work, we were in the club.
