It rained again.
Again, it is always the rain that would put me into deep thoughts.
It feels like the rain might have some super power over me I don’t know.
I was having a conversation with David, when he told me that he already got a boy friend now. I should have thought better.
Reading Apollo David’s post on being kind, I felt the same situation is bestow upon me.
David had wanted to continue his studies after his secondary school. I felt the moment of me and The Boy hunting for higher education all over again. David himself was a little confused with the courses that are being offered. I helped a little, and added even more confusion. I had a slight idea that might help David, I suggested to him.
When we were about to enroll himself, he reluctantly said that he want to check out the other places, and also to confirm these with his parents. So we stopped at there.
Some events happened in between. David’s parents wanted him to go to Form 6, David wanted to continue on media studies, conflicts.
David moved out, he told me that he went to his friend’s place to stay. I had suspect the friend might be someone that I am afraid that he might be, I kept quiet.
The ‘friend’ had suggested that David continue his studies at some unknown Chinese institution. The ‘friend’ also suggest that David work himself in retail.
Firstly, David hates retail. Long hours, and low pay. Plus the standing, and etc.
His ‘friend’ managed to persuade David into working retail. When I asked David, I found out that the friend is a mid 30s, working in retail.
The ‘friend’ managed to brainwash David. Two things for sure. First, to enroll himself in a second rated institution, and secondly to work in a place where expenses might be even higher than the salary itself.
All these while, I was afraid that David might be cheated by someone. Like a lost sheep.
Even though the day had not come, I am beginning to feel it that way.
Oh, David also got fucked by the ‘friend’ and they are both ‘lovers’ now. How convenient.
Sigh, the more you care, you really worry even more.
Why do I care so much ? Because I do not want history to repeat itself. David, it’s time to realize who are your friends!
