Listen Children to a story that did happen long ago
In a kingdom within city and the uni-lad below

So I knew her in my second year of uni. After knowing her, I immediately applied to join her ‘army’ team, being the soldier around her. I went so far to an extent that, I went to McDonald’s to work because I knew she worked there. Despite the fact that we worked different shifts (She usually finished at 8am, while I started at 9am), I would literally go to work a couple hours early, just to see her. My manager sometimes said ‘Well, you do not get paid for starting early.’ I would just say ‘Well, I do not really care.’

She studied at university as well, and we were in the same course, and the same tutorial. Sometimes we studied till late, and she would come to my place for food before she went home. My fridge ended up being empty all the time but I wouldn’t really care.

This went on till almost Christmas time. One day, she said to me ‘Ahh I am spending my Christmas alone again this year…’ Maybe I thought about it too much, but I genuinely took it as an implication. Also, I thought ‘Well, it is time for me to resign from the army, and see if I can get further with her.’ So, i asked her to go to the beach on the silent night, and she said ‘Yes.’

At the beach, we lied down and were staring at the stars. At some point, I asked ‘Do you want to be my girlfriend?’, just that, just straight. She smiled, with ‘ha ha’, without saying anything.¬†Well, what does it mean then? But I thought, if I asked further, it might ruined it. So I was like 50-50 about it, not sure about what she thought.

Then, on the 25th, we hanged out then went for a dinner at hers. I asked her again the same question. Her reply was the same, and somehow we just ate and finished the dinner cheerily. I didn’t ask further, I thought she wasn’t sure about it. THEN what?

She went home on the 31st December and said she would spend the new year with her family. Fair enough! But then what? On the new year day, she posted a picture of her and a guy holding hands, with loads of hearts in it. Well, fair enough, I asked her why she did not reject me right away? She said ‘If I rejected you, then you probably would not spend those time with me then.’ Oh… lol…. Well done, playaaa!

Well, once a soldier, always a soldier, she has always been a player and everytime she breaks up, I help her¬†through, while HOPING (realising I cannot) I have a chance. I know I don’t but well, it’s hard anyway. So, once you’ve joined the Goddess’ Army, it’s hard for you to get out.

So what’s next year? I might have more hope on MU winning the Premier League than myself finding a partner.

What’s your view then?



Table-Tennis Match Report

‘I knew you were trouble when you walked in’
AU Harriers (Members of AU Falcons) 3-7 Collie Gashers

Originally, AU Harriers should have Sir Magician Joe Cranna, Fighter Pete Crichton, and Prince Matt Robinson for the match. But the Prince stepped in for the cup match, so Admiral Hayes Chan stepped in for the match as the third player. These three lads were also registered players for the Falcons team, so it was basically a Division 3 team clashing a Division 1 team.

First round: 1-2
Admiral Chan got Paul Barlow for the first match. ‘I knew you were trouble when you walked in.’ he thought as he played Paul before and got beaten 0-3. He started alright, as he took the first set 12-10. But then, Paul got advice from his teammate, and won 3 close sets straight. ‘It was a tough match.’ Hayes said after the match. Sir Magician Joe won the first game against Derek 3-1 comfortably too, and continued his winning record. Fighter Pete, on the other hand, faced the challenge from Derek, who got tricky serves, and Pete got beaten 0-3.

Second round: 1-5
Admiral Chan got Derek for the second game. Because of Derek’s tricky serves, the Admiral lost 13-15, 5-11 and 6-11. The key player Sir Magician Joe had a very hard time in the second round. He was playing Paul Barlow, he got 2-0 up in sets, Paul then made a comeback with 2 sets. A five setter was on! ‘Come on Joe!’ Hayes was cheering up for him. However, it didn’t help, he lost the final set, and he lost the first league game in the whole season. Magician was very sad, but we should all cheer up for him! He did a very good job in the whole season! The Fighter Pete got Dave, and he was unlucky as he lost by close sets.

Third round: 2-7
‘It is hard to see our honoured Magician having a hard time, I am going to take revenge on the team!’ Admiral got determined and glowed the fire in his heart again! He had Dave in his final single game of the day. He won the first two sets, and in the third set, Dave was 10-7 up. ‘I am NOT losing this! Joe is having a hard time, I must win the game!’ Hayes thought. He MADE IT by winning the final set 12-10! Sir Magician did not manage to calm himself down in the third round, he did not even play half as good as he could be, so he lost the game too. Pete got the strongest player of the opponent team, Paul. He got beaten too.

After the Double Match: 3-7
The Harriers got the Admiral and Magician for the double, playing against Dave and Paul. ‘We are continuing our winning record, Joe!’ Hayes said to Joe. These two Falconers did very well, and won 3-0 straight, and Hayes closed the game with a ‘CHO!’

Although they lost, they did well, remember they were not even supposed to be in Division 2! Even the Dark Knight Gavin Elliot said ‘These three lads did so well today!’ As we know now, Joe and Hayes will be playing in North of Scotland Open, hopefully they will have good results in it! ‘Fail to prepare, prepare to fail, by Colin Dalgleish. So I am having a 3-hour training with Murray Paterson tomorrow!’ The Admiral got the fire in his heart for the tournament again! Hopefully he would do well in it
