My first Love started in church.

[Dictated by Melissa Weng / Written by Manfred Lai]

"Dang! Dang! Dang!" Whenever I hear the sound of church, it always brings back a flood of memories because it was my first love that started in church ......

When I was a student, I was already a devotee and I always went to church every week to attend mass. In fact, there was another reason why I never changed, and that was to meet "him", a priest of the church, who seemed to be a student at a very young age.

When I first saw him, I was attracted to him by his appearance and manner, why this was so, I don't know. It wasn't long before I found out that the "church boy" I had been longing for was a classmate a grade above me at my school and the brother of my best friend, Janet. Janet told me that her brother was very "smart", not only in schoolwork but also in sports, which made me admire him even more. I finally got the chance to talk to him face to face at a dinner party at his home. I don't remember what we talked about, but I do remember that my heart was beating fast and my palms were sweating.

We had our first date after the big dinner, and from then on, we always talked to him on the phone every night, sometimes late into the night. I kept this from my mother because she was a very determined and stubborn person and I was afraid she would object. Although she never objected, the reason we broke up was because she wanted to send me to England to study.

When he found out, he knelt down in front of me and begged me not to go, but I knew my mother's temperament and it was hard to change what I had decided.

After a few arguments, his family agreed to let him go to Canada where he had relatives to look after him. His application for a Canadian visa was quickly approved, so he left before me.

"When I get to Canada, I'll definitely do the paperwork and come to England to see you. I will definitely look for you in the UK when I get to Canada," he said, holding my hand as we saw him off at the airport. When he arrived in Canada, he wrote to me every day, but as time passed, the letters became more and more sparse, and when I arrived in England, he only called on me once or twice during my holidays.
After that, we didn't see each other again. ......

In fact, when I was at the airport watching his plane slowly leave the runway, I already had a feeling that our love affair, like the plane, would grow apart.
I had a feeling that the relationship between us would be like a plane, and that the distance would get farther and farther apart, leaving only a deep trace!"

The first love ( another article about "First Love"...)

The love affair between Weng Meiling and Kent Tong is well known, but a girl like Weng Meiling is no stranger to having her first love when she was 15, according to Weng Meiling.

"In F.3, I was in such a hurry to get back to school that I knocked over a boy's books. I was so embarrassed that everyone was embarrassed. .... A few days later, I was playing ball with my best girlfriend at school, but I missed and the ball hit a boy's head."

"And then, by coincidence, it turned out that he was my classmate's brother. My "first love" began. We often went out together and had fun together, but in the year of F.4, he had to emigrate to Canada with his family. My first love ended in vain."

A romantic coincidence is a story worth remembering. So, Weng Meiling continues, "Although I was young at the time and did not know what love was, and it was a fruitless story, I cherish it very much and will never forget it."

在教堂開始.我的初戀

【翁美玲口述/黎文卓筆錄】
「噹!噹!噹!」每當聽到教堂傳來的聲音,總會令我勾起一陣回憶,因為,我的初戀,就是由教堂開始……

在學生年代,我已經是個虔誠教徒,每星期總會到教堂望彌撒,風雨不改。其實風雨不改還有別的原因,就是想見見「他」,他是教堂的一個祭司,年紀很輕似乎還是個學生。

當我第一眼見到他的時候,已被他的外形、舉止深深吸引,為什麼會如此,我也不太明,或者這叫一見鍾情吧。世界是很小的,不久之後,我竟然發現,這位我朝思暮想的「教堂小子」,原來是我就讀學校高我一級的同學,而且還是我死黨Janet之弟弟。在Janet的口中,她弟弟很「叻」仔,不但功課好,體育方面亦很出色,因此令我對他更加傾慕。一次在他家中開的大食會上,我終於有機會和他面對面傾談,當時傾談些什麼,現在已經忘了,只隱約記得那時我心跳得很快,手心滲滿汗水。

大食會後,我們有了第一次約會,而也在那時開始,每個晚上總是和他通一個電話,有時一講便是到深夜。和他的事,我是瞞著母親的,因為母親是一個頗果斷倔強的人,我害怕她會反對。雖然母親從未反對,但我倆的分手原因是母親要送我到英國讀書。

當他知道後,他跪在我面前求我不要去,但我知道媽咪的脾氣,決定了的事情很難會改變,我的心實在矛盾得很,但誰也沒料到,他為了我,竟然也向他家人提出往英國讀書。

幾番爭論之下,他的家人只答應讓他到加拿大,因為那兒有親戚照顧。他申請加拿大簽證很快獲批准,於是反而先我起程。

「到加拿大後,我一定會搞手續到英國找你。」
在機場送行時,他緊握著我的手這樣說。他到了加拿大後,起初每天都有信寄給我,但隨著時間消逝,信也越來越疏,後來我到了英國,他只是在假期時找過我一兩次。
再以後,大家也沒再見面了……

其實當初在機場看著他乘的機慢慢離開跑道時,我已經有種預感,我倆這段情,
會不會像飛機一樣,距離越離越遠,只留下一道深刻的痕跡呢!


.「初戀」另一篇報導...
翁美玲與湯鎮業之戀是人盡皆知的,但像亞翁這樣的一個女孩裙下之臣自然不會少,據亞翁說,她十五歲時便有了甜蜜的初戀。

「在F.3那一年,有一次返學時,我行得太匆忙,把一個男同學的書碰倒了一地,
 弄得大家都很不好意思....遲了幾天,在學校的球場上,我正與最要好女同學在
 打球,怎知一個失手,球打到一個男孩的頭上,看清楚,原來又是他!」

「後來,還有更巧合的,原來他就是我那女同學的弟弟,於是...我的「初戀」便
 開始了,時常一起外出,一起玩,都很開心,怎知到了F.4那年,而他也是要與
 家人一起移民加拿大,就這樣,我的初戀便無疾而終了。」

一個浪漫巧合的故事,是值得懷念的。
所以,亞翁接著說:「雖然那時我年紀小,尚未知道甚麼叫做愛情,是一段無花果
          故事,但我卻很珍惜這段感情,是畢生難忘的。」
