The story start with a guy, name Paul and a girl named Ella..Both of them were still students but had already started to ‘fall in love’. In another words, they went steady.. In one of the days during their June holidays which they have been waiting for, they met each other at a basketball court..
Coincidentally, they started playing a match with each other.. they had fun..
As Ella knew one of the friends of Paul, she asked for Paul’s number. At that time, Paul doesn’t want to fall in love again, after getting so much hurt from the previous one.. Sadly, that friend of Paul didn’t give her the number.
As days went by, the holidays ended.. They met each other at another basketball near Ella’s school.
Days went by and Ella borrowed Paul’s cell phone and made a missed call to her own cell phone to get his number.. That very night, she sent Paul a text message.. They chatted and had fun.. Till one day, Ella expressed her love for Paul.. Paul loved her too. After thinking for a long time, Paul thinks that he and Ella would last, thus, asked her if she would be his partner.. Obviously, she agreed..
They went steady for one and a half month until Ella ended the relationship because her parents will not allow her to go steady. Who on earth would accept that lame reason? But Paul, like many other love victims, had no choice but to let go..Years past and another fell in love with Paul.. She was Mary. Paul and Ella didn’t contact each for a very long time.. Paul still loved Ella a lot.. But never had the chance to tell her.. One day, along a street, Paul was with Mary..
Paul saw a familiar figure across the road. Guess who was that? It was Ella.. Paul ran across the road, without noticing a truck coming. BANG!! Everyone near him crowded around that area.. Mary screamed as she rushed to Paul.. Ella joined in the crowd.. She remembered the face, one who loved her so much in the past.. Next to him, was Mary.. He wasn’t dead.. “Don’t give up.. say my name, 100 times, 1000 time, a million times.. You’re gonna say it till u can finish a million b4 u can stop!!” Mary said to Paul with tears in her eyes.. Everyone knew Mary was Paul’s girlfriend. But standing alone at the corner was a girl crying.. That was Ella who regretted breaking up with Paul, after recalling how nice Paul treated her in the past.
Paul was sent to the Hospital.. Mary and Ella were there.. Praying hard.. An operation was carried out.. Paul didn’t survive.. The Doctor came out, shaking his head then sighed.. He too, thought that Mary was Paul’s girlfriend, thus approached her for an apology for not being able to revive Paul.. He said to Mary: “Miss Ella, your boyfriend didn’t survive.. He gave himself up after calling your name 157 times. I’m sorry…”
The Doctor has actually mistook Mary for Ella.. Paul was calling out for Ella.. Ella cried in a corner.. She knew why he had stopped at 157.. That was the day she broke up with him.. (15/7) she, who ended the relationship which Paul treasured so much, has in turn, ended Paul’s life.
