Ming was sold to the opera troupe when she was merely six. She hated her father for squandering all the money and selling her. However, she didn’t resign to fate. She worked hard and practised hard.
Her years of hardship paid off, when she was appointed the female lead role, and reigned the industry with her superb performances.
During her round-the-world tour, she found her love. She decided to quit, get married and start a family.
In her sixties, Ming was back to the theatre, a place she once called home. She was glad that she could revisit the theatre before it was demolished. She took her last picture of the theatre.
I’ve told the story as requested. Now, keep your promise and take your medicine quickly before the head nurse comes!
Handing me the tablets, Nurse Lee left the ward.
