Sherry is a hard working girl. She has a good relationship with her mother. She cares a lot about her and they always bond to each other. Sherry dad's left them when she was four. Her mother has raised her up all by herself.
Sherry is a role model in a famous secondary school. However, things were not that good few years back then......
When Sherry was in Primary 6, she worked very hard to get into her targeted school. Everything paid off. She was accepted by the school. Her mother rewarded her with a brand new smart phone. She was overjoyed.
Disaster happened right away. Sherry glued her face on the smart phone screen twenty four seven. She watched Japanese movie and played online games while doing homework. She started to sleep late and fell asleep in her classes.
Sherry's class teacher had a talk with Sherry's mother. Her mother scolded her when she got home. They had a quarrel and their relationship turned sour. From that day on, Sherry started having her dinner in her room. The time she spent with her mother becoming less and less.
Despite all the argument, Sherry's mother still loved her daughter very much. She would still prepare dinner and bring it to her daughter's room. Unfortunately Sherry only lived in her own world.
One night, Sherry's mother brought her hot soup as usual. Unfortunately, she tripped herself by the charger. Sherry's phone was pulled to the ground and smashed. Sherry was ready to explode. The whole bowl of soup was poured all over Sherry's mother. She was burnt and started to sob.
When Sherry heard her mother weeping, her heart sunk. She stopped everything and hugged her mum. "I am sorry, mum," Sherry said. Sherry realized how old her mother was and how long she hadn't talked to her beloved mum. Sherry's mother was bitter sweet.
The iceberg was broken between them. Both of them started to talk to each other. Sherry rushed to the bathroom and grabbed a wet towel. After that, she cleaned the floor for her mother. They had a long talk that night.
Sherry started to wail. She apologized to her mother and sought for forgiveness. Sherry's mother said sorry to Sherry too. She said she should not shout at her all the time.
Since then, Sherry started to put more time focusing on her study and family instead of holding her phone. Her academic result and school performance were getting better day by day. She even got into the elite class. She has become a role model by then.
We should always communicate with others rather than hiding all the feelings. We should not be addicted to electrical devices.1 / 13
