I woke up in the dead of night because I couldnt sleep. For lack of something to do, I logged onto my favorite online game to kill some time before sleep would finally claim me.
And so, there I was , getting my fix of a newly-acquired addiction ,online gaming .
I noticed this guy .He was a very good player and gleaned from our short conversations, I surmised that he had a lot of gray matter.
And so I made a mental note to be on the lookout for him the next time I was online .
Days and weeks went by , and I did not come across him, until one day, he found me.
We teamed up, had loads of fun playing, and knew that I had found a strong gaming ally in him.
I wondered if he was cute ? I was very determined to find out…
And so , I added him as a friend of one of the social networking sites just to view his pics or just to find out the answer to the age-old question “ Is he dating someone ?:
And, just like what I had expected , he was not bad-looking and was single.
So ,I made a mental note to get to know him better.
And get to know him I did.
We talked about his life, his job, and how his work as an engineer for a huge food manufacturing company took him to different places all over the country .
He seemed very interested when I told him that I wrote blogs for date of Asia.
A few months into our friendship, he mentioned that he was coming to my place on a work-related trip and I agreed to meet him.
We had dinner at a Chinese restaurant and I couldn’t help but notice that he used a lot of gel, without a strand of hair out of place.
I almost kicked myself when he asked me what I wanted to have for a drink and I inadvertently replied “gel”.
Moving forward , we became inseparable and maintained a comfortable level of friendship.
But alas, all good things must come to and end.
He had to be reassigned to another country in South East Asia . I will probably never hear from him again.
” Along the journeys in life
we discover a new path
that leads us to a special place.
And it is there, for a moment,
we feel safe and at home.
And the people we meet seem to become a very dear part of us.
Somehow, things just fit,
and we are awakened within,
and continue on with memories
of those who have deeply touched our hearts.
And with us we take those special
friends with whom we have connected
heart to heart.”
