A love story of a person with autism.

Hello Madrookers, 

Last time I shared a music video with a short story in it and tried to explain it in my own words. Now I’m going to share another music video which featured the same artist from the previous video. The video link is below. For your kind information, I don’t understand the language of this video either.

My digest:

The story starts from where an old lady, in her bridal costume, gets off from a car in front of a Church. A young guy leads her through the aisle. It was a marriage scene where an old man who is going to marry the old lady, in his three-piece vest and the priest waiting for her.

The story flashes back to the old days when this couple fell in love as she walks. It suggests that this is the 2nd time they are marrying each other.

Now we are diving into their past as the story moves on. The lady, who was young and pretty then, walked with accompany of her father to the man who was young and diagnosed with a sort of autism. Her parents are not that much happy because their only daughter was marrying a person with autism and going to spend rest of her life with him.

But she was happy because she loved him. They exchanged their ring and got married and walked happily out of the church.

As days goes by, she arranges a doctor to examine him. The doctor prescribed medicines for him. She plays with him by popping soap bubbles, swaying him on the tree-swing and took a good care of him by feeding food and medicine. 

Decades later, he got better gradually. The doctor examined him and confirmed that he was cured. They were both happy.

Now the story flashes back to the present. They are getting old now (probably 50+ years). It implies that he wanted to marry her again because his mental health was not stable earlier. He couldn’t feel or recall the precious moment of their life. So with a consciousness, he knows what is happening right now. He, filled with happiness, put a ring on her finger and marries her one more time.

Happy ending!!! 🙂

  1. The story starts from where an old lady, in her bridal costume, gets out of off from a car in front of a church. A young guy leads her down through the aisle. It is was a marriage scene where an old man in a his three-piece suit vest who is going to marry the old lady,  and a the priest is waiting for her.

    As she walks down the aisle, the story flashes back to the old days when this couple first fell in love.  It suggests that this is the second 2nd time they are marrying each other.

    Now we dive are diving into their past as the story moves on. The lady, who was young and pretty then, walked (is this still down the aisle?) with accompany of her father to the man who was young and diagnosed with a sort of autism. Her parents are not very that much happy because their only daughter was marrying a person with autism and going to spend rest of her life with him.

    But she was happy because she loved him. They exchanged their rings and got married and walked happily out of the church.

    As the days goes by, she arranges for a doctor to examine him. The doctor prescribes medicines for him.  She plays with him by popping soap bubbles, swinging swaying him on the tree-swing, and taking took a good care of him by giving him feeding food and medicine. 

    Decades later, he has gotten got better gradually. The doctor examines him and confirms that he is cured. They are both happy.

    Now the story flashes back to the present. They are getting old now (probably 50+ years). It implies that he wanted to marry her again because his mind mental health was not clearly aware stable earlier, so he couldn’t feel or recall this precious moment of their lives. So with a Since his mind has become more alert and lucid consciousness, he knows what is happening right now. Filled with happiness, he puts a ring on her finger and marries her one more time.

    Very good writing, Vasanth.

    1. Since you are writing in present tense, I changed the tenses of some verbs to be more consistent.

    2. I made a few other minor edits to use more precise wording and native-like wording.
    (Note:  A 3-piece suit consists of coat, pants, and vest.)

    3. The first time you mention something, use ‘a’ (“a priest”).  After that, use ‘the’ (“the priest”).

    1. Thank you. Teacher Lee. I thought it would be nice to write the present scenes in present tense and those flashback scenes in past tense. 
      And one interesting thing is I searched many related terms for a person with autism. I was thinking of writing “Autistic person”. Some forums suggest that it is good to write the person’s name first and the syndrome later. Because no parent would want to put any name in front of their child’s name.
