The Hoping Girl

Olivia Chan

Once upon a time, there was a poor and charming girl who lived in a small village. One day, she went to a clam river as usual to wash her clothing. She discovered a man lying on the ground near the river. He looked very sick, so the kind girl carried him back to her house and took care of him. During this time they fell in love, and the strong and handsome man made a promise to her and said he will marry her after he finished his business. Unfortunately, the poor girl waited year after year. Although she got older and older, she believed the man would never break his promise. She waited for him until she turned into a stone.
