“I can really distinguish between a girl
who likes me and a girl who just looking for friendship!”
--- Randy Waskita ---
Xervan notices the sad gloomy expression on his friend’s face, Randy, and offers his ear to listen to Randy’s
problem, Xervan has always been a good listener to him.
“Van, she keeps
flirting with me. She is gorgeous, there is no doubt about that, but she is too
aggressive, not my type of girl.”
“Lestari? Flirting with you? Are you
serious? You just met her five days ago man,” said Xervan while enjoying his tastiest Nasi Soto.
“Maybe that’s what
you feel, and maybe she acts normally towards you, but to me,” Randy pauses for
a while, looks sad, then continues, “I just don’t have the heart to refuse her
love for me!”
“Yo, are you sure
about this? Lestari is the type girl who gets along with everyone easily, and
as far as I know, she already has..”
“No-no-no Van!” Randy
interrupts Xervan, “I know what you are going to say, and you’re wrong! I can
see it in her eyes! It’s not that I’m overconfident, but… I can really
distinguish between a girl who likes me and a girl who just looking for
friendship!” Randy tries to convince Xervan.
Xervan stares at Randy’s
face, trying to understand what makes his friend so upset.
“So, Lestari is in love with you?”
“Exactly! And that
what makes me upset!”
“Wait a second; I
think I’m missing something here, if Lestari is the one who in love with you, then why you are the one who feel upset and
“Maybe you already
notice that I’m not only handsome and good-looking, but I also have a gentle
heart, I don’t even have the slight intention to break her heart! Every time
I’m with another girl, she gets insanely jealous! Can you imagine if she feels
broken-hearted, frustrates with the fact that she can’t get me, and then
commits suicide? Who are going to responsible if all those things occur?” Randy
says, slightly furious.
While Xervan and Randy
still converse about Lestari, out of the sudden, Lestari appears and walks
towards Xervan and Randy, but she is not alone, walking beside her is a fine
“Hello Van! Sorry I can’t
reply your message, my phone’s dead,” Lestari says.
“Haa! No wonder I
don’t receive any reply from you!” Xervan replies her.
“Here you go! These
are all the textbooks that I have right now, these should be sufficient for
your exam preparation.” Lestari hands a pile of textbooks to Xervan.
Randy stares at Lestari
without saying a word.
“Sorry Van, we need
to go now. The film gonna start soon,
it’s The Dark Knight Rises! Can’t afford to miss that!” said the fine handsome
man beside Lestari.
“Ah oke, enjoy the
movie you two!’ Xervan says to both Lestari and the handsome man.
While Lestari and the handsome man walk away, Randy feel
shy and disbelief as he sees from afar Lestari holds the handsome man’s hand.
It is obvious that the handsome man is Lestari’s boyfriend.
who are that guy? Please Van, don’t tell me that he’s her…”
“His name is Charisma Wijaya, and…, yes Randy, that
is Lestari’s boyfriend,” Xervan interrupts Randy, it’s like he can read Randy’s
Xervan notices the
change of expression on his friend’s face. Randy is filled with jealousy,
anger, disbelief, and even embarrassment. He still can’t accept the fact that
all this time Lestari never really like him. All of his assumptions and
hypothesis are all wrong.
“ Well, isn’t
it a good news for you, Randy? You don’t need to worry about making Lestari
feels broken-hearted anymore!” Xervan says.
Xervan keep trying to console Randy, but before he can do
that, Randy stands up from his chair and walks away, leaving Xervan alone in
the canteen with unpaid food on their table.
Randy, wait… where do you think you’re going? Who’s going to pay for these?”
