Episode 231 – Sunday, July 1st, 2018 (7852)
On June 25, 2015, I thought that day was just like any other. At the start of the day, I had my usual routine when I prepared for my work and travelled in a nice flow of traffic going to San Pedro. At the workplace, I was so comfortable to have no stressful jobs and strict bosses (because they’re in Macau during time). Even though my distant girlfriend didn’t text me for few days due of no cellphone load, I was confident that we’re still keeping in touch right after our anniversary date almost two weeks ago. After work, I got go home and ate my delicious dinner. In retrospect, that June 25, 2015, Thursday, was just an ordinary day for me. No one knew that it would be the last day of one of the happiest moments in my life. And I never thought that day would be the end of my colorful and happy love life after three cheerful years.
On that night, when I got home from work and after eating my lunch, I was so glad that she texted me for our usual distant communication as a girlfriend/boyfriend. However, later on, I had no idea what happened next. She informed me thru text messages that she was caught by his eldest brother after he saw our sweet pictures on her cellphone while we’re dating for our third anniversary few weeks ago. She also told me that her father already knew about our “secret” long distance relationship. I was so surprised when she said that she needed to break our relationship in order of her father. Actually, I accepted her decision as we ended our three-year LDR (despite of having met only 15 times). But the most painful thing that I ever heard was when she wanted me to forget her and to look for a lady more deserving than her. This made me so hurt, and she was crying during that time. After that, she thanked me for what I had done for her with happiness in the past three years. Then, I sent my final text message to her telling my final goodbye, and she replied it for the final time to thank me so much.
Three years later, I didn’t feel any sadness or regret on that heartbroken day three years ago. But I didn’t care because I was too busy enough at my new job despite of having an antagonist who’s too overacting so much. Like my career life which has been horrible right now, my love life is seemed to be empty from what I had three years ago while my two other colleagues, who, like me, are graphic artists, in my new job have their own girlfriends. Well, I don’t mind that they have own love while I have none. But, in this episode, I’m just wondering… what if my LDR with my distant textmate/girlfriend still exists today? What if our break-up on that night didn’t happen, and we’re still distant lovers? And what will this affect in my current situation?
