Pilot episode of Gideon & Jane: I’ll always love you

This is a piece of autobiographical fiction. Space and time have been rearranged to suit the convenience of the book, and with the exception of public figures, any resemblance to persons living or dead is coincidental. The opinions expressed are those of the characters and should not be confused with the author’s.

This story is written as an example to anyone who wants to believe that we are more than the patriarchy deems us to be, more than our limitations, and more than our fears.

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.”
