At one o’clock, I had my lunch but I wasn’t enjoying it either. So, I practiced the lines to almost all girls I met at my lunch. Yes, I was a little bit crazy. Finally, it was three o’clock. I remembered all my lines. I wrapped my works and got ready to pick her up and of course proposed her. (Event)
I met her at four o’clock, took a little walk and went to a movie. At seven, we had a romantic dinner. I thought it was the perfect time to ask her to be my wife. Then I said the lines that I practiced the whole afternoon.

I bounced out of the road and my motor cycle was totally broken. But at that case, I did not feel any hurt. There was no blood out of my body. I was angry at that time because the bus did not stop and escaped. I run after it and I didn’t know why I could run so fast and jump so high.
I jumped to the back of the bus and climbed it like a spider. I went to the front, stooped the bus and took the driver out of the bus door. I knew that I was no more normal human being. I did nothing more to the bus driver. I went back home and decided the next action to do after that.
