They were originally a couple who shared happiness and sorrows. The girl came down with uremia and was in great danger. For her, her boyfriend sold his house and donated his one of his kidney to her. In front of the disease, they closely united. After the girl recovered, she became his wife. At that moment, he felt more than happy and every bit of his effort paid off!
However, less than two years after their marriage, their love was entirely shattered by reality.
Chen Yongjun, 28 years old, is living in Nangang, Harbin, Heilongjiang Province. Due to his needy family, he had to drop out from middle school and became a worker in a knitting factory.
In 2004, Chen knew Wang Li who also worked in the same factory. He fell in love with her at the first glance and pursued her with all his might. After pursuing for a long time, Wang Li promised to be his girlfriend, but hesitated to promise his request of marriage.
At the end of 2006, the factory went bankrupt and both of Chen and Wang were out of work. Chen had to be a mason in a construction site while Wang Li bought an old knitting machine and set a stand before her gate. She was very skillful in knitting. All the gloves and socks she made were far more delicate than those in shops. Therefore, more and more people patronized her shop and her business took off.
Whereas, the prosperity did not last long. With Wang Li’s business becoming better and better, she felt uncomfortable physically. She often felt dizzy and had an increasingly poor appetite. It lasted for several months. When Chen Yongjun saw Wang Li pine away, he began to worry. He took her to the hospital and the result shocked both of them: uremia!
The result was deadly strike to them. The sky-high expense of dialysis rendered Chen worry to grey hair overnight. Lying in bed in hospital, Wang Li knew Chen’s anxiety and their own financial situation, so she insisted on going back home. Helplessly, Chen had to took her back home to receive treatment. He had to work in daytime. At night, he would go to Wang’s home to tend her. Seeing her pining away day by day, he often cried privately.
Nonetheless, a bigger misfortune was still waiting ahead. Due to irregular treatment, Wang’s illness became worse and worse and soon came to terminal stage. The only solution for her is to get a new kidney.
Chen felt stunned at that time. Due to the great expense in the past, he had already used up all their savings. To conduct the operation of exchanging a kidney, it needed 200,000 yuan! But Wang was in great danger and the operation was in urgent need. Knowing all this, Chen set up his mind to help her at all costs!
Having an idea in mind, he posted an advertisement of selling his house the next day. In November, 2006, after selling his house, Chen rented another small house of some 10 square meters.
Even though money was not a problem, a proper kidney needed to be found. Under the plead of Chen, the doctor conducted a match experient for him and Wang Li. The result was stunningly delighting to Chen. His kidney was totally fit for Wang Li. His girlfriend could be saved!
Due to Chen’s weak physical condition, the possibility of success in this kind of great operation was only 50%. But Chen did not hesitate and resolved to donate his kidney to Wang without telling her and her families. On the afternoon of December 16th, 2006, after more than three hours’ operation, it turned out to be a great success!
Having undergone such a tough event, Wang Li, who once hesitated about Chen’s request of marriage, finally realized Chen’s love. They got married in March, 2007.
Wang felt considerably grateful to her husband. Though the doctor asked her to have a rest for sometime before working, she started her knitting business right after she came home. She undertook all the household chores and took good care of Chen.
Chen, originally weak physically, declined rapidly after the operation. He had been lying in bed for nearly a month. Seeing her husband in such a poor condition, Wang felt extremely guilty and worked day and night in order to earn more money to buy some nourishments for her husband.
Never had she imagined that her husband would become weaker and weaker. For almost one year, he did not go out to work and could only do some chores for his wife.
With Wang Li’s business blooming, she did nto set a stand in front of her house. She rented a house of 70 square meters in Harbin and employed four apprentices. The whole family also moved from the small house to a bigger one with 2 bedrooms and 1 living room.
Wang was busy with her business all day. She went out early in the morning and came home very late at night. Therefore, the couple did not have too much time to communicate. Though Chen desired to help her wife, he felt terribly weak and could not do too much. He felt extremely humble and became more and more irritable. He often lost his temper at home and smashed something broken and quarreled with his wife. He also began drinking and smoking. All these bad habits worsened his health and he looked like an old man though he was only in his 20s.
Because of the frequent conflicts and quarrels, Wang moved to her shops and did not go home for nearly a month. Chen stayed with his friends for the whole day drinking. One day, after drinking, his friends asked him to find girls to play with. Though Chen felt angry with his wife, he still deeply loved her. One of his friend said, “Why not go together? Your wife did not go home for a month. she must have had some sex with other men. Why do you need to be a good man?” Chen pounded the desk heavily and said: “Bush! If you go on saying like this, we are no longer friends!” “Everyone knows that your wife stayed among a lot of businessmen in the wholesaling market. Only you are kept from it!”
Hearing all this, Chen felt stricken and went to Wang Li’s shop to find her. After arriving at the shop, he saw his wife chatting with a man of 30s. After the man said something, she would laugh then. Chen felt considerably irritated and rushed to Want and slapped her across her face. Then he began cursing Wang. The man intended to solve the conflict, but Chen came to fight with him. “What the hell is wrong with you? I decide to divorce you! We can no longer live together any more!” Wang shouted at Chen with tears.
The man talking with Wang was named Zhang Zhifu, a businessman in clothing wholesale market. Wang Li’s clothing was all from him. His wife passed away very young. After knowing Wang Li, an industrious and beautiful lady, he began a relentless pursuit. But Wang always remember her husband’s love and did not accept Zhang’s pursuit. However, she did not imagine Chen would become another person later. Thinking of all the pains she suffered and seeing Chen making conflicts then, she could no longer bear it.
The original unyielding love had been eroded tremendously by life. Wang wanted to get rid of the tiring and insulting life, but Chen was filled with anger.
Wang Li insisted on divorcement. No matter how Chen Yong pleaded her, she did not want to go home. Knowing that this marriage could not be kept, with great grudge in heart, Chen decided to work out a divorce agreement that would make her pay the price!
On April 13, 2008, Chen visited Wang Li who had lived away from home and said that he agreed with divorcement. Wang Li felt a relief. She said, “Love should be based on mutual emotion. After divorce, all the houses and properties belong to you. It it also the compensation I can make for you.”
“You plan to settle me in this way? Now my body has been badly ruined. You do not want to take care of me any more?” Chen said excitingly.
“So you can make some requests. As long as I can do it, I will do it for you.” Wang said.
Chen took out the agreement had written beforehand to Wang Li, upon which it read: As chen donated his kidney to Wang Li, he suffered from some physical drawbacks and complications, which made his life more difficult than ever. After divorce, Wang Li should pay 3000 yuan for Chen’s living expense. And the amount of money she pays should be subject to the changes of social and economic factors. For instance, if the price of product is greatly increasing, the amount of money shall be increasingly accordingly.
Having read the agreement, Wang said angrily, “You are bullying me! I have agreed to leave all properties to you. What else do you still want?”
“You are so conscienceless that you deserve it! If you want to divorce me, you must promise the agreement.” Chen said in great anger.
Seeing the skeletal Chen and thinking of all he had done for her, Wang Li felt guilty and promised his requirement. On April 17th, 2008, they divorced.
After divorce, Chen often stared at the empty house and thought of the time when Wang Li and he went through the tough situation together in hospital, feeling extremely disappointed. He was originally physically weak, and after donating his kidney, his immune system became more vulnerable. He had to rely on medicines to sustain his life. Now he suffered mentally, so he fell down again.
The next day after he lived in hospital, Wang came to visit him. Seeing her walk into the room, Chen felt very thrilled lying in bed.
“She still loves me!” Chen felt very pleased. Just right then when he thought Wang would accept him again, Wang simply asked him, “Are you feeling better? You should take good care of yourself.”
Only a simple greeting? Chen felt cold in heart. He raised his head and saw a man standing beside the door. Not until then did you realize his beloved had already found a new lover.
Chen said to himself painfully, “Now you have a new lover. In order to save you, I become the one I am now. I will not let you live smoothly!”
After a month’s treatment, chen went back home on June 14th, 2008.
After going out of hospital, he came to see Wang Li.
“咚咚咚”他狠狠地敲门，门开了，他又看到了王莉熟悉的面孔，然而那已经不属于他了。王莉把他让进屋，问他的病情。听到曾经的妻子用旁人一样的语气问他，他更加压抑不住心中的怒火，用一种嘲笑的口吻说道: “你们就巴不得我死，你放心，只要我还活着，我就不会放过你。”没等他把话说完，王莉已经把钱放到了他面前，转过身去对他说: “你走吧！”
He knocked at her door heavily. The door opened and he saw a familiar face, which however, did not belong to him any more. Wang let him in and asked about his illness. Hearing his ex-wife ask him like a stranger, he could not help feeling terribly annoyed. He mocked, “All of you want me to die. But sorry, as long as I am alive, I will not let you go!” Without waiting for him to finish his remarks, Wang put some money in front of him and turne around, saying, “You can go now.”
Seeing Wa Li’s attitude, Chen shouted at her, “I just go out of the hospital and the doctor said that I need to eat more nourishments. You want to send me away with such peanuts?”
“So how much do you want?” Wang Li said coldly, “5,000 yuan. Exactly!”
Seeing Chen come to find troubles, Wang felt very angry. She had to go into the room and gave him a bankcard, saying, “There is 5000 yuan in this card. The total now is 10,000 yuan.”
Seeing Wang’s unhappy face, Chen felt very delighted at his revenge. He went away singing. Since then, every month Chen would take his illness and the increasing price as an excuse to ask Wang for money. As long as Wang argued with him, he would resort to the agreement.
After the new year of 2009, Chen came to Wang’s home again and asked for 30,000 yuan for the upcoming spring festival. But Wang did not promise.
“How could you refuse me? I have donated my kidney to you! You are so wicked! Chen thought by himself. Then he raised his head and saw the photo of Wang and Zhang on the wall. He felt terribly irritated and shouted, “If you do not give me money, you should give me back my kidney!” But it was impossible for Wang to do it.
Chen felt extremely angry. He said to himself, “Now you are living happily, but what about me? You took my hope away and left me a painful and hopeless life.” “You do not want me to live, so we can die together!” he shouted and rushed to her.
At this moment, Zhang came out from the bedroom. He would not allow the mad Chen to bully his wife. Without Chen’s awareness, Zhang pressed him to the ground. Zhang warned him that he should stay away from Wang and should not bother their lives.
Seeing his wife and another man fight with us, Chen lost reason totally and fighted with Zhang.
Seeing Chen, her once lover who sacrificed his health for her, Wang only harbored great grudge to him. Economically, he asked her for too much money. In life, he often tortured her. She had planned to live a happy life after marriage, but was only tortured by him to be mad. Now as long as Chen disappeared, her life could be better. So she grabbed a fruit knife on the table and stabbed Chen. Chen shouted miserably and was bleeding nonstop. Wang was shocked by her own deed and dropped the knife on the ground, sitting there soullessly.
Chen’s shriek stunned the neighbours. They called the police. When the police arrived, they sent Chen to hospital. After intensive rescue, Chen is still in coma. Wang and Zhang have been arrestd by the police. Now this case has been handed over to Nangang Intermediate People’s Court and will be in trial soon.
When love is gone, it may be difficult to let it go, especially for such an impressive and sacrificing love. nevertheless, no matter how much you have ever loved each other, it is not worthy to sacrifice our future happiness for the lost love. It will only hurt ourselves and others to bear grudge out of love and conduct revenge. I really hope that Chen can understand this common wisdom after he comes to consciousness.
