No Happy Ending...?

Have you ever watched a movie, hoping throughout that movie that when you get to the end, you'll see a happy ending to the story?

Well, in my case it wasn't a movie, more of a drama series of 25-episode. I have watched the story evolved from episode 1, psyching myself to be within the story and up to the end of the series, I did not get to see a happy ending. I felt sad, I felt dissatisfied!!! Since last night till this morning, I'm still dwelling on the fact that the guy and girl did not live happily ever after. Still dwelling on why didn't god (or in this case, the director) did not let him live on to be with his beloved, why did he have to die?!

Everytime when there's no happy ending, I have the sudden strong urge to "get into" the story and set things right. I wonder if anyone shared the same feeling as I do. I want everybody to be happy in the end. To have a happy ending.

This kinda put me in a sombre mood today, especially with the cloudy, gloomy weather today. Maybe, I should just avoid stories with no happy ending. I think directors or producers should put a warning before anyone watches their show. Maybe it should read something like below:

WARNING: This story contains elements of sad-story endings. People with fragile heart and tear-prone are not recommend to proceed in viewing the show.

Well, anyone?

To honestly loved and be loved....and nothing more?

It's been a while since I've blogged. Got the blog's writer's block or just an excuse to make myself feel better.

Been watching a new drama on TV, and it makes me ponder on this issue. Is it really enough to just honestly loved someone, be loved and not ask for anything more?

Ms. B 'nui chu kok'* and Mr.S 'nam chu kok'** in the drama have sparked off during their vacation off work. And due to a minor misunderstanding, both decide not to pursue further in the relationship.

Much later in the drama, Ms.B and Mr.S finally found the truth of the misunderstanding and what has been keeping them apart. But alas, it was too late, Ms.B have already taken a pledge to a new life with another man.

B: You knew the truth, why didn't you tell me?
S: I thought you were'n't a serious person in relationship. I thought you were....(blah, blah,blah)
B: Why this have to happen now? Why?!
S: It's too late, we have to be rationale. You are another man's wife.
B: I just need to know. If you knew the truth, would you have pursued to love me?
S: Definitely...
B: Which means the time we had together, the feeling was real. We have honestly loved each other. Knowing this, would be enough isn't it.
S: (Nods...)

Conclusion: Ms.B went back to her hubby and both S & B hold on to the memory that they had honestly loved each other. And that is enough.

I wonder if this only happens in movie. Given in real life, things will not be as simple. How many of us would really give an honest heart into the relationship?

I'm looking for the answer still...

*nui chu kok: main actress
**nam chu kok: main actor

Love don't need a reason, it needs honesty.
