"If it’s love and we decide that it’s forever no one else could do it better. And if I’m addicted to loving you and you’re addicted to my love too. We can be them two birds of a feather that flock together. Love, love got to have something to keep us together. Love, love that’s enough for me."
As he opens the door he felt a sudden breeze. A cold wind just went inside that gives him goosebumps. instantly he knew who was there.
"Seph, I thought you were gone? Leave me for a while can you?"
A strong wind suddenly hit the door that slam it closed.
"Now you're furious? I did not ask for this! Can you spare me some time?" He blurted in a loud and strong tone.
The curtains in the window were like dancing as the gentle breeze became a strong wind. It hit the nearby picture frames that were hang on the wall that made a loud noise as it hit the floor. "BAAANNGGG!!"
"Calm down.. please.. we can discuss this in a peaceful manner." As he took the broken picture frame showing a photo of two young men who seems so happy from a vacation. The background was an old malay temple that gives a feeling of nostalgia to the viewer.
Not so long ago they were a happy couple. Like ordinary newly weds they embarked on a trip after agreeing on settling down together of being four years as lovers. They faced all the odds as they were not an ordinary couple in a stereotype society.
Terence was the aggressive type. He worked for an Non government office and that was fighting for the acceptance and practice of the basic human right that each individual should uphold and the society should respect.
Seph was more of the traditional person. Strong family values. He was not out of the closet due to his fear of rejection. The idea of having a relationship with the same gender will never sink into his mind as for him it was a sin. He keep his true identity hidden to everyone, even his family doesn't know or they refuse the fact that they know.
They meet in the office that Seph work for as an intern. They have different views, different backgrounds and different values. But one can never resist the sharp arrows of cupid. They were hit and they were in love.
Although it was a struggle for Seph, he had a hard time on balancing the situation. He had to weigh his choices and he have to face the consequences it holds. Although Terence was there to support him all the way, he have to make a big leap that will change his life forever. So it happened. He break his values and give in with open heart accepting Terence's love.
And for four years a midst the struggle and the difficulties they have kept their relationship working and strong. Not until that one tragic night.
"I cannot go with you. Just go ahead and don't wait for me... the meeting might last for hours and i don't want to keep you waiting." Terence explained on the other line.
"But you promise... you should have inform me earlier so that i can take a cab from the office. Now i have to walk the alleys..." Seph said worriedly.
"It'll be fine... nothing will harm you. Don't worry i'll be home soon. Sorry for this.. i know i promised but this was with short noticed. Just take care!" Terence tried to end the conversation.
"Ok i'll just try to find another alternative. Be take care too.. and.. i love you.." Seph's last words.
"i love you too..." Terence replied as he turn off the phone.
After that night Seph was never to be found.
