After getting caught by my cousin displaying much affection towards Cheng last Wednesday. I knew I had to talk to her about it otherwise hell might break lose. The emotionless look on her face. I really had to talk things out to her. So we decided to meet up at the coffee shop nearby her place at 3pm. When I got there she was already seated with a frap on her hand and a cigarette on the other.
"Hey Patty(not her real name), how is school? how's life?"
"School has been stressful as usual and I feel like dropping out of school but you know mother wouldn't like that"
"What about you Simon? How is school and life?"
"Likewise, School has been stressful for me as well and life has not been very smooth the past few months"
"So about the other night.. You know seeing me and Cheng"
she just stares at me while I try to muster up the courage to tell her..
"Well Cheng and I are more than just best friends.. You know like bf-gf.. except its bf-bf.."
She just smiled and said "Si, well we have been cousins since ever and I know you pretty well. I have always known that you are not like the others." "Well for me there is really nothing wrong with it. It's just that... After seeing you guys together that night. Everything just made sense. My instincts were right.."
I said in a hushed manner "Can you please not tell anyone about this.. I would not want to runaway like our cousin James who was banished..."
"We are the new generation.. Not to offend our folks but I think being too traditional has shut down many things we could have done in our lives.. Dont worry. I know how it is in our family."
With that I am finally a step closer to becoming a free man. Happy Sunday to you guys :)
