Aren’t Separate Won’t Incredibly Near
When can I meet a person in a cyber world in real life? He was my very special friend.
It was June 10, 2011 I was sitting on a chair which was located in front of my television. I was on line via mobile phone, I log in my facebook and I started to check my notification. There were a lot of notifications there and I choose friend request icon. There was an Indian boy named Syber added me and without any doubt I confirmed him. I confirmed someone request in order to pass my brother’s facebook friends quantity. Having a lot of friends from abroad, and have a chat with them is my opportunity to be closed to the world. I have a lot of friends which came from counties. But his photo profile and message stole my eyes.
The first text I read from him “thx 4 add”. I think that’s a common sentence for a friendship request. Then I typed some common sentence too to open a sweet conversation. I said “you’re welcome and nice to meet you”. The next he called me cutie. I thought he was different person than the other friends that chat with me too. Most of them called me babe. I do hate that.
I thought that Mr. Syber doesn’t have topic. So I make a topic about Hindi Language. I’m interested in many languages at that time and I started to open my mind about India. Mr. Syber gave me a new view about India. India has a lot of languages and it’s not only Hindi. He is a Malayalam man. I just knew about Trivandrum and Malayalam at that time.
It was a long chat about India in a day. It was the first time for me to have a long chat with a person that I did not really interest in. He told me that he is an atheist. He is really love science. I thought he was a good Hindu. He started to ask about my private life. I just felt like I knew the direction. I said to him that I was not interested in relationship before I was twenty five years old. We were starting to make a commitment to be friend.
The day after, I never imagine if he still remember me. Some of my Facebook friends only last for a day. That was because I am bored by them or I am not interest in them. Mr. Syber should be a lucky boy, because I replied his messages. But it wasn’t a long chat as the first day we met in cyber world. He left me an impressive memory. He called me weird. I like that.
June 12, 2011, Sweet Sunday for me, as usual I went to church in the morning and when I arrived home, I logged my Facebook in and I sent him a message that I was alive. Nice conversation happened. He said he was thinking about me while I watched Japanese drama. I asked him “How tall are you?” I started to put my curiosity on this 182 cm boy. He gave me a far-far away hug after I said that I was only 153 cm.
I never imagine that I often said hello first than him. I must be crazy. But I am the person that always left him on a chat. I was always prayed for him although he said it was wasting time to pray for him. That’s my habit to pray for my Facebook friend if I remembered them. That’s a weird action. I just said to Jesus that I am very happy to have friends like them. Especially Mr. Syber…
One night, I was damn crazy and I told Mr.Syber that I want a boy friend. I said to him that I was looking for Mr. Date in cyber world. I wanted a man that only wants to date in a cyber world, but I couldn’t find him. I could not figure my mind, why I did not ask Mr. Syber for that. Maybe it was because I honor Mr. Syber. He is absolutely my special facebook friend. I couldn’t ask him for a fake relation. Mr. Syber is someone that God had sent to me for a good friendship.
We always have a nice conversation. But sometimes I don’t have time and money to open Facebook. I think I always open a topic for him and ask him to tell me his story. He has many beautiful stories. He said he like a girl in his college. I also told him my story that I like a man that I met in travel car. We are very funny. I knew him day by day and I started think that I like him as my friend.
June 10, 2013, it’s been two years for our Facebook friendship. We celebrated our first year friendship by sending picture and edited it. But this year is different. I was trying hard to log my Facebook account in, but I couldn’t. I tried so hard but I didn’t make it. I’ve been hacked. I was very disappointed. I was angry and I made a big decision not to have any social net work account. I left Facebook by then. I left all of my friends there. I lost my contact with Mr. Syber…
It’s been five years passed. I have my own life. As an educator, I make some research in the world related to teaching and learning progress. On June 2018, I must go to India, Japan, Korea, and Kazakhstan for my research about children’s education in Asia with one of my friends.
India, 9 June 2018, I visited a school in Mumbai. The principal was a great woman. She asked us to stay with us in her apartments. We agreed. We have a lot of education topic to discuss.
In the morning, we went to the school together by her car. Arriving the school, she let us went around the school. I entered the fifth grader class. The teacher called a doctor form NASA. I enjoy the class until the bells rang and the kids run happily to the canteen for break.
“Excuse me, are you an education researcher from Indonesia?” the doctor asked me.
“Yes, that was a great and communicative explanation about sky. How could you know that I am an Indonesian?” I asked him.
“Thanks, yeah Mrs. Principal told me yesterday. May I know your name? I have some beautiful memories with Indonesian women.”
I told him my name. I was surprised because he said that he is Mr. Syber. I was speechless. We were staring each other with surprised feeling. We went to the principal’s office together. We have wonderful conversation together with my friend and Mrs. Principal.
He asked me to have lunch together in his favorite restaurant. “I never imagine that we can meet in the real life” he said.
“Today is our seven years friendship, isn’t it?”
With his smile he said he missed me so bad. I said “I miss you too, have you married?” He smiled and told me that he just engaged with a beautiful laddy in his home town. He asked me whether I had a husband or not. I said “I have a son and a daughter without any husband yet.”
Please use your imagination to develop my short story...
