A young couple in Hubei, China, Xiao Xia and Xiao Geng, was supposed to go back to their hometown by the end of the year to get married. However, Xiao Geng got into an awful accident which caused 90 percent of his body to obtain burns. Twelve days later, he woke up and found himself inside the intensive care unit (ICU).
Doctors told Xiao Xia that her beau will be permanently disfigured and may face multiple complications even if he recovers from his condition. Medical bills were estimated to be about 1 million yuan.
Relatives, acquaintances, and those who heard about the couple’s situation advised Xiao Xia to just leave her partner and move on with her life. They told her, “You still have a long way to go in your life, don’t let him be a burden to you.”
But Xiao Xia remained deaf over these remarks from other people. She chose not to leave Xiao Geng’s side.
“When he wakes up I will ask him to marry me! Last time, he was the one who would take care of me, now it’s my turn to do so,” she said.
The couple has known each other since they were 15 years old. Reports said that Xiao Geng fell in love with Xiao Xia’s sweet-looking demeanor. He reportedly courted her for years and finally won her heart when they turned 20. Then, they moved to Guangdong to work for two years.
Xiao Xia shared that they were happy despite their skimpy salaries. She added that she could not sleep while Xiao Geng was in a coma as she feared that he might die. Every day, at 3:00 PM, she would catch a glimpse of her boyfriend through the window of his ward.
“I would wait at the intensive care unit every night so that if he woke up, I could be there by his side immediately,” she said.
Xiao Geng’s father then rented a room near the hospital so she could be near him. Xiao Xia and Xiao Geng’s story was so moving that the landlord discounted the price of the room. Not only that, she also allowed Xiao Xia to use the kitchen so she could cook meals for her injured lover anytime she wants.
Xiao Xia shared that cooking is a brand new experience for her as all the house chores were done by him. Xiao Geng really devoted himself to her.
“I love him so much because I know that there is no one else in this world who would treat me as good as he does. I will never abandon him,” she said.
