I think I owe God a serious gesture of gratitude for granting me an opportunity to see Fiona in person so soon.
I am simply overwhelmed with joy.
There are a number of reasons for that. For one thing, she seems to have put on some weight and her face is glowing with happiness, warmth and satisfaction. This is exactly what I have been dying to know and see.
For another, she played extraordinarily well in her first appearance in a musical. At a time when she didn't have a line, she simply spared no time to do whatever she could not to grab attention but to fulfil what her character would have done as if it ever existed in real life. While I must confess that I spent all the time following her movements on stage, there is no question that she deserves the strongest possible compliment for a tremendous job done. Bar none.
How privileged I was to be able to present her in person a bouquet of peach-coloured roses and a letter after the performance was completed. Her lovely small face lighting up with surprise and innocent excitement just seemed unforgettable. Making someone you admire happy is just a wonderful experience.
What was even more unforgettable to me was that she gave me a big hug when I congratulated her for a great performance. I never thought that such a sincere but small compliment would make her so excited. Who was I to her to deserve such a miraculous encounter like this? Since that particular moment I just felt like my favourite Jin Yong character Ren Yingying was throwing herself in my arms. Then I found myself flung into a dream that would be too good to be true.
Dear Fiona, just a quick note to thank and congratulate you for a great show. Make sure you take some good rest tonight. May I wish you every success in the performances to come.
