Best friend ko si Reeve since... forever. But when I was six and he was ten, his family had to go back to London. Before he left, he promised me that we would remain friends no matter what. Mahirap sa una. Pero habang tumatanda kami, nagaadvance din naman ang technology.
Fourteen years later, meron nang Viber, Wechat at kung anu-ano pa! Keeping in touch with him became as easy as breathing and we constantly updated each other about the happenings in our lives.
But we had two rules: 1) No sending each other pictures through email, Facebook or Twitter and no Facetime or Skype. Why? Because we promised we'd see each other again someday and we wanted to make that moment special. 2) We'll never keep any secrets from each other. Number 2, was a promise I kept but it seemed that Reeve had a lot of secrets. Hindi naman gaanong big deal para sakin. Even if he had secrets, he'll still be my best friend.
But was 'friendship' really all there was? Or was there more? Perhaps, what we had was actually a long distance-love affair and that distance is just a number?
