I usually do not turn off my cell phone. Why? I have no idea. After reading
an article, I seemed to understand a little bit: for that little bit of caring.
I am now sharing this story with you.
The girl would turn her cell phone off and put it by her photo on the desk
every night before going to bed. This habit has been with her ever since she
bought the phone.
The girl had a very close boyfriend. When they
couldn't meet, they would either call or send messages to each other. They both
liked this type of communication.
One night, the boy really missed the
girl. When he called her however, the girl's cell phone was off because she was
already asleep. The next day, the boy asked the girl to leave her cell phone on

From that day forth, the girl began a new habit. Her cell phone never shuts

After a long time, the girl has a new love. No

the night, but not expecting that it'll ring.
One night, the girl fell

boy's cell phone. The boy was already asleep but his cell phone was still
Later, the girl asked the boy: "Why don't you turn your cell phone
off at night?"
The boy answered: "I'm afraid that if you need anything at night and aren't
able to find me, you'll worry."
The girl finally married the boy.
Later at night, do you turn off your cell phone?
