Grandma started behaving weirdly. She was getting very forgetful. She went to the market and didn't know how to come home. She kept doing things twice, even thrice. She was diagnosed with dementia.
As days went by, she couldn't remember the people around her. One morning, grandpa woke up to see her gone from the house. He called all his children and grandchildren and they started looking for her all over the neighbourhood. They couldn't find her. Then grandpa suddenly rushed out, with his sons following closely behind.
They found grandma outside their old house which they had moved away more than 20 years ago. She was staring at it. Just standing on the sidewalk.... staring at it. She turned to look blankly at grandpa, wanted to say something but seemed to have lost it. Grandpa gently held her arm and softly said,"Let's go."
Mo xiao said, her grandpa's heart was shattered into tiny pieces at that moment, he was devastated. The woman who had been his companion for more than 50 years, had lost her memories of him ...... and her life.
Two years later, grandpa passed away. Mo xiao and her parents moved in to stay with grandma. For the next few days, grandma acted funnily. She kept opening the door of the fridge, many times a day. She would open both doors and rummage through the whole fridge. It looked like she was looking for something, but she had forgotten what she was looking for.
One afternoon, Mo xiao heard a loud crash in the kitchen. She rushed to the scene and saw that the door of the fridge had fallen off! Grandma had opened it so many times that the door of the fridge just fell off. Everyone was shocked and puzzled. What was she looking for?
The day they bought a new fridge, grandma fell ill and never got off the bed again. A few days later, she passed away. That was two weeks after grandpa's death. Then suddenly the family realised, even though grandma had her life erased from her memory, the love that existed in her heart knew there was something she had lost. She was looking for grandpa in the fridge......
