"Hey, I am Kinley and you are also Kinley, right?", knew eachother for the first time that way. Being in the class together,same school and resident near,so going home together and roaming together wasn't a big deal then. Lots of students and lots of friends surrounding. We had our own life separately. All had their own life. Nobody cared what others did. That was good.
That is when being as an innocent children
But for now, we have got no idea whether it was just the mere of coincidence or fate but we are into the same college doing the same course. We two being only student from same school and being a good friend, our closeness together as a friend grew more and more.Story of deep friendship began with it. She was my classmate from 11th standard till 12 and our luck carried us together in the same college and same course. Starting our journey from train till some months back, we were into good fortune as being a pretty good and close friend but time made us set ourselves differently. There were 14 other students from different schools of Bhutan, all government sponsored students. All faces were new to one another. Talking to each other was uncomfortable. But for me and Kinley, we were already a known face, so throughout our journey, we were doing chit chat together. That time we weren't aware of what the new faces were making out of our friendship.
Time went on, college started and everything went smoothly. We got made up with new faces. I too got build up with my new colleagues. Once one of my friend started using me as a booked guy to the other college mates. That was weird for i never had one nor i shared anything related to my personal things to anyone then. I asked what he was talking about and there i got the whole idea that all that time all my train friends had been thinking me and kinley as 'girlfriend and boyfriend'. Everyone was bothering now to each others life unlike in school.We never did a sort of thing to make them think that way but i guess our togetherness made really wrong sense to them. News flew from one pair of ear to another, people talked about us from one mouth to another and we became a headline for all tv channels in our college. Kinley started feeling uncomfortable then to be with me, actually i too was. I didn't had that free thing to do everything with her as a friend. Our closeness became diverging, everything was like a new after that, like she was becoming stranger to me and me to her. We never talked much then.
That is when being in school
I kept asking myself, can't a boy and girl be a friend, just a friend???. Spending time together, is it done only between boyfriend and girlfriend?? Friendship is put upon a question between the gender. Not only that i guess now even between same sex, if time is spent more, people start thinking them as gays and lazy beans. Now that i have not much connection with Kinley, friends started thinking we have broken up and trying new ones in college.is it because we are grownnup now? May be that is one of the chapters of college life. How the hell fast people keep suspecting and coming to conclusion. Exception might be there but that must be one of the nature of human because i too remember doing that to others. Seeing every time a girl and a boy together, thinking them as couple, starting to tease, not believing what they are saying is just a part of social life i guess. Life, society, friendship, love, actually everything is unexplainable. Like one of my friend says, every human beings are pretenders, to complete their cycle in the samsara, they are doing things what that environment or situation make them to do. We are grown into that environment,so i guess we have to also go through that.....!!!!.
Now that is in college
