AP: I don't think a guy and a girl can be a best friend.
M: Yes they can, look at the girl you chase right now, she spills everything out to me but not talking to you
AP: hmm, well, they can probably be best friends, if the guy is gay
AP: oh wait, don't tell me .... [stare... 5.... 4....3...2..1. ]
M: yep, I am gay
AP: [jaw drop, his spoon full of rice fall from his hands]
M: yeh, I been thinkin to tell you since we're gonna be housemates for coming years
another awkward moment...
AP: so...... does it mean that you like me? as in attracted to me
M: HELLL....!!! NOOOO....!!! EWWWW....!!! c'mon seriously...!!!
M: the reason I choose you as my housemate is because I know I will never be attracted to you even if you're the last guy on earth and yet I can still be myself at the same time
M: Look, just because that old lady in happy chef chinese restaurant downstairs has a VeeJayJay doesn't mean you like her right? Same thing goes to you la, just because you have penis doesn't mean I am attracted to you, daa... It takes more than just penis for me to get attracted to a guy.
We had an awkward week after that conversation that night, but I couldn't be bothered anyway, busy with assignments I locked myself in my room most of the time. I still cooked for us and eat dinner as usual. A week later we get back to normal with the piggy back jokes. We became brothers since then and housemates for six years. His parents treated me as their third son whenever they visit us in Sydney, even until now.
Since then, I decided I will have to let my housemate knows about me whoever they are. After AP moved out. My new housemate is Dee, I didn't need to comeout to her because when she inspect the place, AP let her went to my room and she saw nine pictures of me and J on study table. Ah makes things easier then....
So what's your coming out story? ***
