After more than two months spent by her bedside, a devoted boyfriend was a little thrown off when his beloved girlfriend finally woke from her coma and spoke those first long-awaited words, which weren’t exactly what he’d hoped to hear.
Following a serious traffic accident, Fu Jun had been taken care of by her family and her boyfriend Chen Ben in a hospital in Anshan city, Tencent News reports.
The dedicated Chen quit his job to look after her and kept near constant vigil by her side for 70 long days before Fu finally regained consciousness.
“On the day she woke up from her coma and started to speak, her mom and I were very excited.” Chen Ben remembered.
However, those long-awaited first words weren’t quite as romantic as the boyfriend had expected. “She said: ‘Why did you save me? You shouldn’t look after me. I don’t want to get married, don’t want to be a burden!” Chen Ben told reporters, adding that he forced a smile and tried to calm her down.
The Boyfriend of the Year said that he will continue to help his girlfriend recover and later marry her.
Fu is currently still recovering in the hospital, where she has started to walk again with difficulty.
Chen Ben’s incredible devotion to his girlfriend has melted netizens’ hearts.
A user named 嘉多宝 commented, “A good man like him is rare to find nowadays. I wish that the girl can recover soon and they can be together forever. Bless them!”
“He’s a real man that didn’t abandon his girlfriend and didn’t give up on her!” wrote user 郑晓春.
“She’s lucky to have found a good man like him. I wish them both happiness!” added a netizen from Chongqing.
