My head was turned, so did the heads of my other friends as we laid our focus on a lady who just came out from a hair saloon.
So I thought I knew this lady, so I was just on the pretext of calling the name,"Janet, Janet" but that lady did not response to my indistinct calls of "Janet, Janet"
At this juncture,my friends were already mocking me,ridiculing me of being "Mr Know Her All" I was adamant that I really knew this girl,how could I not,she was my ex and she won't escape my memory for that matter.
So oblivious to my friends' mocking,I called out again,(only this time a bit louder)as she was passing us by to get to her car,she halted her strides,immediately I rose from chair and walked towards her and I said,"Janet? I am Eugene"
Well,she did not look excited knowing it was me(cos ours was a unpleasant break up)nevertheless,she was always a polite and nice lady,so we chatted on
.I was asking about the usual stuffs,such as work and family.
She told me that she was running her own business and I thought she was in it with her husband but she told me they were already divorced.I did not extend my "consolation"
She was in a hurry,I could sense it so i retreated a few steps and kind of wanting to say "adios' to her,she then passed me her business,I did likewise and I said "Let us keep in touch sometimes"
My friends overheard the last part of "Let us keep in touch sometimes" so when I sauntered back to my seats,pompously I acted like a victor as if wanting to tell my friends,"see told you I knew her"
Instead,before I could open my mouth,my friends were all warning me this,"you better don't keep in touch with her,dangerous lah" Ditto
Seriously I do want to keep in touch with her,mainly we are still friends and secondly,that's what I said,"Let us keep in touch sometimes"
What is so dangerous of keeping in touch with your exes? I wonder.
Does anyone of you still keep in touch with your exes?
P/S : She's still my friend
