I draw for alot of reasons. I draw because my hands itch to draw. ALL THE TIME.I draw because I can :DI draw because of the attention.I draw because I want to improve.I draw because of a friend. If you want to know why, just read the spoiler.[spoiler=]She died at 18 after 2 years of struggling with bone cancer. We were a group of otakus who can draw well and of the four of us, I'm the only one wanting to be mangaka in the future. She had no idea of what she wants to become though. I smsed her throughout the whole month since she was declared terminal. She stayed home with a life support system since the doctors couldn't do anything anymore. She drew and drew and drew at home to forget about the pain she's going thru. I SMSed her the day before she passed away. We talked about stuff..about friends and maplestory..and I can tell that she's in so much pain. Yet, she doesn't want to stop texting me when I told her she should rest. She asked me, "Miinru(YES, she calls me by my IGN in maple, she's kinda funny sometimes
) you are to be a manga-ka?" I replied , "Yes and I'll do it for you. Please don't give up hope yet k. I'll give you poccoyo if you stay strong.
" After a long 50 minutes, she replied "Sorry for the late reply. I am having difficulty breathing
." and then another short reply "I'm glad we were friends. I'm glad you'll do it for me. Gambateh!
" and that was her last message to me. I replied "Thanks, and I love you too :3 bwahahaha *totysmiles* (@xo) Is james with you now? OMG breathing problem?? I'm totally coming over tomoro!! Ask a doctor to come over now!!!!
" She never replied. Later at night, I prayed to dear god "Dear God, please please hear my prayer! I have said this a thousand times before, but please give strength to my friend Sharon Yap..Please!! Take away her pain Lord! Take away her breathing problems, heal her Lord!!!
" Then I sat down and cried. "Amen
." At 1am, her brother called me and to announce her death. I was struck in the heart and I cried some more. I loved her more than a friend. Now she's gone? She stopped breathing at 8.45pm, chinese new year eve. Rest in Peace, Sharon Yap Shu Wen. I will continue this chapter of my life for you, that you'll be smiling down at me from heaven.
