"Hey, Brian! Can we have a talk?" asked Shiao Wei tiredly after three hours of band practice.

Extracts from this document...


Mary Chen Eng 11-3 November 22, 2003 English Short Story (1st Draft) "Hey, Brian! Can we have a talk?" asked Shiao Wei tiredly after three hours of band practice. "I mean you and I. One to one." Probably because of repeatedly movements in the band practice and tiredness, his hands were shaking slightly; salty sweat just swelled from his forehead and his chest like running tap water. Awkward. Shiao Wei and everyone else usually take a shower or write their college essay after band practices because there is no other time for us to do our homework. We spend most of our free time playing band. Our band named is Tiankon or sky, which is formed three years ago. He takes part of guitar player in this five-members group. We didn't really chat about anything else after exhausting yet breathtaking practices. But today...there must be something going on. I thought. It must be pretty serious. "Sure." I replied. "You seemed tired. Want some snacks first?" "No. Thanks. That's ok. I need to talk to you about the public concert tomorrow. It is not a big deal," said Shiao Wei with a somber expression as he and I walked in the conference room. The conference room is the size of four tatami, which can only fit in a small wooden round table and five stools. ...read more.


So many reasons and questions came into my mind at the same time on their intension to leave this band. But none of them seemed to make sense to me. Where did the passionate go that we form Tiankon? Is it my problem that caused all this to happen? Or is it peer pressure that led them to give up? I don't know. I seriously don't. All I know is that Tiankon cannot carry on any longer. From their purpose, I can make hypothesis that this band will never acquire they success in the future. With this one and only thought, I disintegrated the band before the upcoming concert tomorrow. I decided to leave this broken-hearted place. Therefore, I went to United States, where rock music is originated. In two years and so, I lived in New York and I learned how their music influenced their people. Their unique style and techniques is the major key to their success. By a chance, a famous singer met me and discovered my talent. The famous singer decided to raise me up to the sky. Honestly speaking, I don't know which quality did she see on me. All I could say was that I was lucky. Four years later, I was able to become one of the well-known singers in United States. ...read more.


This is one of interesting sights you see in Taiwan and it seems very common among them. A week later, I decided to look for my old buddies when I was in university. When I found them, I saw everyone become either businessmen or have their position in their majoring territories. They looked busy but satisfied with their lives. Everyone seemed to be involved in his careers. Then, I gave up. Why do I have to interrupt their life when it is only a na�ve vow in the past? What a silly thought of mine, I thought. Things will change and things have changed. People who we meet in our lives, major events we might go through, experience of gaining and losing are like basic understandings to math such as the ways to add, to subtract, to multiply and to divide. This adds on to our knowledge. Once we get the hang of it, we can solve more intricate questions by using the basic concepts and techniques. So the math problems that we solve are dissimilar to the ones we did before. Those questions may cause us struggles and pressure, but once we solve to the answer, we feel great success. Just like Taiwanese people's view of rock band and rock music. The concert was a great success, more than ten thousand people came. After time and other factors, Taiwanese people now accept rock music. ...read more.
