And how you felt about it
The experience I am going to tell you is that I forgot the date with my girlfriend on the 14th of February this year. It was the first Valentine’s day since we were together, so my girlfriend attached great importance to it. She started to hint at the symbolic meaning of this festival and how much she had been looking forward to it even three months ahead.
As a model boyfriend, I surely did not want to let her down. Therefore, I reserved a table at one of the fanciest restaurants near my school, this article is from laokaoya website, and booked a bunch of rose in a flower shop the day before. I also bought a pair of silver earrings, hoping this could give her a surprise. Everything was set. I told her to meet me at the school gate at 6 o’clock sharp.
When I was waiting for the time to come in the dormitory, my roommate invited me to play “Glory of Kings”, a computer game where you picked a hero, teamed up with others and fought against the enemy. I looked at my cellphone. It was just 3 pm. So I said why not. Then the worst thing happened.
I was so immersed in the game that I totally ignored the elapse of time. When I finally remembered the date, it was already a quarter past 7. I rushed to the school gate and my girlfriend was gone. I called her but she had put me in the blacklist and it never got through. I was deeply regretful. How could I make such a thorough preparation but forgot the date eventually?
