The interview started minutes ago. It isn't finished yet. Just like the usual interviews, the hosts would ask who's single, how's the tour, what kind of girls they like, and they were playing around like there were no cameras at all. I didn't even participate neither listened to the whole interview thing. Like I care.
I slowly placed my arms over the table and rested my head on it. The interview would last for like after an hour so I decided to sleep.
"Kat, Kat!" Harold shouted loud enough for me to hear. We are currently at the playground. "Come here!"
Harold is my very best friend when I was 10. And he was 13 years young that time. He's basically 3 years older than me. He has blonde and straight hair that time and I love him so much probably because he acts like my older brother who would save me from bullies.
"What is it Harold?" I asked him and walked over to where he is. He stood in front of an old oak tree.
"I want you to stand here and wait for me to reach the other oak tree." He says, pointing to the other oak tree opposite to where we stood.
"Umm, Okay..?" I agree, unsure of what to say. I began looking at him like he is some idiot or what. He just smirk at my direction and made his way to the other oak tree.
After couple of walks, I can see his tiny little body on the other side.
"I'M GOING TO SHOUT SOMETHING OKAY?" He obviously shouted from the other side. "YOU MUST LISTEN! OR ELSE I'M NOT GOING TO BE YOUR LITTLE BEST FRIEND EVER AGAIN!"
I chuckled at his immaturity and then replied, "WHATEVER HAROLD! SHOOT IT!"
"KAT, I AM SO SORRY, REALLY!" He began as I stood still and listen to what he is saying. Why is he so sorry? "MY MUM AND DAD GOT DIVORCED SO MUM SAID THAT WE WOULD BE STAYING AT OUR GRANDMA'S HOMETOWN. WE MAY BE FAR FAR APART FROM EACH OTHER BUT I WILL STILL LOVE YOU LIKE MY SISTER FOREVER AND I'M STILL YOUR ADORABLE LITTLE BEST FRIEND, RIGHT?" He shouts from the other side, trying not to choke on his own words.
As soon as I heard the news that he will be moving far away from me, tears tried to fall out from my eyes, but I resisted. "OF COURSE YOU WILL AWAYS BE MY CUTE LITTLE BEST FRIEND! BUT WHY DIDN'T YOU TELL ME BEFORE?" I asked him, shouting on the top of my lungs. I said the words clearly for him to understand and tried not to stutter with my words also.
"BECAUSE.... I DON'T WANT YOU TO BE SAD AND TO WORRY ABOUT ME LEAVING!" He shouts yet again. Even though I was still 10, I have my emotions. I tried not to cry about him leaving but it didn't actually work. "LISTEN KAT! WE'RE LEAVING TOMORROW SO PLEASE DON'T WORRY ABOUT ME, I'M GOING TO BE OKAY. I'M STILL GOING TO BE THE HAROLD KID WHO WOULD HANG OUT WITH YOU. I'M NOT GOING TO CHANGE AND I PROMISE TO KEEP IN CONTACT WITH YOU ALWAYS. TRY TO BE FRIENDS WITH STRANGERS AND HAVE SOMEONE TO KEEP YOU IN COMPANY WHEN I'M GONE." He trails off, making me a bit flattered but at the same time, feeling pain and hurt. For the first time in my life, I felt special. "PROMISE ME SOMETHING, OKAY?"
"ANYTHING HAROLD!" I said slightly chuckling from my tears. I'm trying to be happy because I never felt sad when I'm with him. We would always hang around and play. Never did I feel lonely when I'm with him.
"PROMISE ME THAT YOU'RE GOING TO TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF WHEN I'M FAR AWAY FROM YOU! PROMISE ME THAT YOU WILL HAVE FRIENDS SOON." He says. "PROMISE ME THAT YOU WILL NEVER FEED CATS WITH HAMSTER FOOD EVER AGAIN. PROMISE ME THAT YOU'LL NEVER CHANGE SHOES WITH A GUY AND LET HIM WEAR HEELS. YOU CAN ONLY DO THAT TO ME OKAY? BE POLITE TO BOYS." I laugh remembering our memories together. "NEVER STAND IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ROAD TO GET YOURSELF KILLED. DON'T DO THAT." I smiled. I met Harold when I was planning to kill myself on the road and to get hit by a car. Mum and Dad would always punish me that time because of terrible grades and because 'I was the one who started a fight at school'. He pushed me to the sidewalk and saved my life that time. He was the one who listened to every problem I have. "PROMISE ME TO TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF WHEN I'M GONE. DON'T LET THOSE BULLIES BRING YOU DOWN, JUST IGNORE THEM. AND EVEN THOUGH WE'RE GOING TO BE FAR AWAY FROM EACH OTHER, I WANT YOU TO BE HAPPY. LIKE ALWAYS KAT. YOU'RE VERY BEAUTIFUL WHEN YOU SMILE. ALWAYS REMEMBER THAT." I felt flattered when he said that, yet again making me blush. I smiled at the grinning idiot. He stopped yelling after that and gave me a reassuring smile.
