I remember it like it was yesterday.
Gideon and I were walking along the same path that we always take in Pasir Ris Park.
We come to a bench and sit down and I feel what he’s not saying. There is a huge suspense of silence between us. And then I ask, “What’s wrong?”
“So…I met someone online. And I think I’m in love with her. I love you a lot a well, but I don’t think we are good for each other.”
“Is that your final decision?”
“I don’t know. I really don’t know. My mind is telling me one thing, and my heart another.”
“You know that no matter what happens, I’ll always be okay. So you don’t have to worry about me”
“I’ll always love you,” Gideon told me. “I know, me too.”
