our story – what happens next

From then on, our Gunbound sessions turned into MSN sessions and…..

I didn’t quite know what I was doing. back then…… Afterall, I thought I was only adding a stranger to MSN from an online game. Everybody does that. No big deal.

Nothing would happen, right?

….Wrong. I had no idea what I was getting into…

.

.

.

.

So we started chatting, and I found out that his English name is actually James. And then I saw his MSN display picture and I was TOTALLY like,

“OMG!!!!!!!! SO CUTEEEEEEEEE!!!”







Does anybody here believe in love at first sight? Cuz I definitely do.

I wasn’t completely madly in love with HIM then, cuz for all I know he could be some balding 50 year old man who farts 20 times per hour behind this cute MSN display picture, right?

So I kept my distance but I chatted with him casually – just like anyone would do with their MSN contacts. My mind was very very very simple – I was but 13.

Although I didn’t know this guy, I had a crush on his…..

.

.

.

FACE!!! HAHAHAHAHA.

His picture was sooooo cute. It was a picture of him with his friend’s little kid, and the kiddo’s name happened to be JAMES as well! There was a caption on his photo that said, “James and James Jr.”


When I saw that ADORABLE picture with the kid, I went like, “AWWWWW! James is sooooo cute.”

And you know what that idiot replied me?

.

.

.

.

“…Which one?? =) “

LOL! Helllloooo. He flirts in a way that you wanna smack his head real hard for being a twat but at the same time he makes you giggle and blush, sorta.

I really can’t help but grin from ear to ear as I’m typing this.


There was just something about this guy I couldn’t keep off my mind. The way he flirts with you and you can tell he’s interested in you, and just when you’re starting to enjoy the attention, he doesn’t try so hard anymore and you go like, “is this guy even serious at all?!”

Trust me when I say that I KNOW A LADYKILLER WHEN I SEE ONE!






This random MSN guy, James, was DEFINITELY it. The funny thing is, after chatting a little more, he asked me to send him my pictures so I did.

Oh oh…
Nu-uh.

Bad mistake.


I looked absolutely horrible back then! James was nice enough and told me I looked SEXY and sweet.








…HAHAHAHA! Pedophile Alert!!!


You don’t go around telling 13 year olds they’re sexy, honey!

Then again, flattery ALWAYS wins a woman over… There was something that felt sincere about his compliments, so I took it all in.

The time came:

He asked,

“Hey… so you free tomorrow? Wanna go out and catch a movie? We can have dinner after that… =)”




Ok, I can never ever forget how he ALWAYS used the =) smiley. LOL.

I tell you, I was so amused by this guy I remember jumping for joy when I received this MSN message. But at the same time, I was really freaked out!

I looked really horrible at that time, this guy was WAY out of my league, I was really young and I didn’t know him at all so honestly, if he wanted to meet me he must be either really genuine, or really perverted.






As much as I would love to scream, “YES YES YES!!!!”

I made up 101 excuses why I could not meet him. I would say that my parents won’t let me out of the house, I’ve got work to do, etc.

And he never stopped trying!!

…Well, ok, he stopped after 2 months of constant harrassing me over MSN. Lol.

Really couldn’t stand this guy! He would go like, “Hey… so how? You promised you’d go out with me this week. Let’s go have dinner and movie, ok? =)”

And I’d try to wriggle my way out and say something like, “Hmm.. I’m not sure can or not. I let you know later if I’m going or not ba.”

Then I went offline. When I came back 5 hours later, the first message I received on MSN was :

“You bluff me…. =’(

You said you will let me know, but you didn’t get back to me and I was waiting for you the whole day dear…”





Wa piang oi. My status turned from Noob, to Xiao Mei Mei, to Dear. LOL~

The moment he started to go all flirty and it was wayyy too overboard so I decided to forget the idea of him. I ignored his messages and never bothered to contact him anymore. I still had his handphone number in my contact list though!

.

.

.

And then I kinda forgot about this funny flirty cutey MSN / Gunbound guy James, for about 1 year.



He ceased to exist in my thoughts, and James never went through my mind again except occasionally,





I’d tease my ex-boyfriend and say,


“Ok fine! You want to be like that then like that lor….I go find James already”






…LOL!!!! It’s true.

Btw, did I mention I was already attached at that point of time?

..Oops. Sorry la, no time to talk about 2 different love stories. Lol. But just so you don’t get confused, let’s sidetrack abit and put James aside for a moment to focus on my then-boyfriend.

So let’s just call this ex-boyfriend, erm… Cliff.

Cliff and I were on pretty good terms, and as much as I was smitten by James’ cute MSN pictures (plz remember I was only 13 years old!)

I still liked Cliff very much, and I know it’s not appropriate to meet random male strangers you met online when you’re attached and all, so I kept a distance from MSN JAmes.

So what’s my short summarized story with Cliff?

Ok…

I tell you all a secret,

you guys plz don’t laugh too hard… ok?

I met my ex-boyfriend, Cliff,


…..through Gunbound also.

.

Don’t laugh.

I SAID STOP LAUGHING!!!!! LOL~




Yes yes yes, it’s true, omg.

X______________X;;;

………………..

This is social suicide.

I shall now not be known as “Jessica the Blogger”, but as “Jessica who picks up guys from Gunbound”







But I swearrrrr, when I logged into Gunbound everytime my only intention was to dual and kill their asses, not to be their girlfriends la!

Ok enough of ridiculous facts about my relationship. I’m telling you so much more than you need to know =P

Be grateful and take it all in. Hahahaha.

So basically, Me & Cliff met through Gunbound, and at one point I really thought James was cute so I put his picture as my MSN display picture so Cliff asked, “Who’s that?”

And I said, “Dunno, some guy named James. I think he’s cute!”

Cliff agreed that this James guy is really good-looking and cute, and so I sent him more of James photos so he could see better. LOL.

And when we were playing and had a “fight”, I would always say, “FINE!! Be like that. Hmpf. I go find James already… byebye.”

And Cliff would be like, “T_____________T you go lor, you go find James lor. I go die!” or something.

I remember seeing James picture on Cliff’s MSN pic also, LOL!

HAHAHAHAHHA. I dunno about you but I find everything written above so damn amusing. My life is like this really dramatic series that would make the weirdest movie ever recorded in history.

Not in anybody’s wildest imagination would they have guessed my past relationships were like this. =P

.

.

.

Alright, to cut a long story short, the fun was over in a matter of months. Just like every other good thing in life, my relationship with Cliff came to an end.

Cliff decided to break up with me because apparently, I was really posessive and stuff and he needed to concentrate on his O Levels (HAH!)

I REALLY LIKED HIM ALOT LOR!!!

So…..

Here comes the part where everything changes.



As expected, like every other break up I would face in my life, my life turned upside down and I cried many times every single day because I was so emotionally attached and I couldn’t let go of Cliff yafayaf odajfoejufoue9r47rajkfa

You know, the usual emo bullshit.

MY LIFE SEEMED TO BE OVER.

What was I going to do without Cliff?….

After alot of determination and trying to cheer up, I decided to..

Do what every other girl out there does lor, have a feel-better-after-break-up-plan.

#1 on every girl’s list is – Go out and have fun with your girlfriends.




That’s exactly what I was planning to do!!!!

~~~~~

Flashback:

It was a bright and sunny weekend – perfect for going out.I was looking forward to meeting my girl Eunice, we had plans to go to town together.

I got dressed, but halfway through she called me and told me she couldn’t make it. Bummed out, I wondered if I should just stay at home or find someone to go out with me?

After calling my close friends and realizing all of them were busy, I scrolled through my phone contact list out of desperation.

Scrolling….
Scrolling…
Scrolling…

Called Aaron, wasn’t free. Called Liza, wasn’t free also. Seems like nobody is free!!!!

And as I was scrolling even further, a name caught my eye:

James.

James James James James… Where have I heard this name before? Why does he seem so familiar yet unknown at the same time?

I sat down and thought hard… And suddenly, I burst out into laughter.

.

.

.

James.

James James James James… Where have I heard this name before? Why does he seem so familiar yet unknown at the same time?

I sat down and thought hard… And suddenly, I burst out into laughter.

.

.

.

Hey, isn’t this that funny and cute Gunbound guy I met a long time ago? Throughout the whole 1 year plus I had his number in my phonebook, I never realized it existed!!

I wonder how he is now.

….Sheesh, he’s probably forgotten who the hell I am already. No wonder he hasn’t contacted me for so long.

I mean, not that I am sad or what la, it’s expected anyway. Who keeps in contacts with strangers in MSN anyway?

I highly suspect I belong to the “Don’t-Know-Who-They-Are-Leh” List in his MSN.

Nevertheless, I cannot help but remember his miserable but persistent attempts at asking me out in the past!! Muahahahaha.

There is just something thrilling about rejecting a cute guy over and over and watching him come back for more.

But of course, guys and their huge egos – he felt “sian” after awhile.

………..Surely, he wouldn’t remember me at all?


Heck, think so much for what! Just call la!!!

Cheesepie!!!

He didn’t pick up the phone.

…..Forget it. What was I expecting anyway?

I am doomed to remain depressed over this break up with Cliff forever, cuz I can never seem to experience new things and have fun or go out. Life sucks.

How? What to do now? Sure very boring one lor!

I WANT TO GO OUT!! GRRRR SOMEBODY JUST GO OUT WITH ME-

….*phone vibrates*


!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



New Message from James:
“Hello, you called me? Who are you?”

.

.

.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.

DRATS!!!!!!! Told you he doesn’t remember me anymore lor. I am just a xiao mei mei afterall.

Nevertheless, I was damnnnnnn bored so I replied,

“Hey yeah I called to ask if you wanna go out… I’m Jess.”


….

New Message from James:

“Jess? Which Jess?”






…………….WA PIANG!!!

This guy very cute, hor? Last time he was like PLZ GO OUT WITH ME and now he’s like all WHO ARE YOU?

Really really buay tahan liao! Ignore him better la.

So I couldn’t be bothered to reply my message and proceeded to carry on with my emo-ing… Tick tock tick tock, 20 minutes have passed so fast.

“This is the end”, I thought. Doomed.

.
.
.
Suddenly!

.
.
.
.
.

New Message from James:

“Are you the Jess who stays at Bukit Timah?

I thought last time you don’t want to go out with me, so why now suddenly ask me out??”

.

.

.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!

He still remembers! Woooooppsss.

So we exchanged a few more SMS-es to confirm our meeting location, time and all and then I went to prepare myself. Better look my best. WHAT TO WEAR???

.

.

.

More than 1 hour has passed. I am now walking out of Somerset MRT, and I pass by a mirror. I check out my reflection…

Green contacts with a little mascara and lipgloss, a crown necklace and hoop earrings, a black spaghetti inside a red jacket and black baggy 3 quarter pants – oh yes, did I mention I was also wearing those punk-ish STUDDED BELT?

I thought to myself, “Yep. I look cool. It’s all good” (Jess now says: WTF!!! COOL??? UTTERLY HORRIFYING WHAT WAS I THINKING?!?!)







This is it!! I’m going to meet this mysterious WeiXi0ng character from Gunbound. I have no idea what he sounds or looks like, for all I know, he could be that 50 year old smell old man I feared he would turn out to be.

As I arrived at Cineleisure, I look around anxiously…

Could I recognize him, just by trying to remember that cute MSN display picture I fell in love with a long time ago?

.

.

.

Sent him an SMS:

“What are you wearing?.. I’ve reached already.”

Then came his reply:

“A green polo tee. I’m near the escalator”

OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I see him.




He’s staring right at me, but he doesn’t know who I am – yet. He looks away.

And I try to pluck up as much courage as I can!! It is certainly not easyyyyyy. As I take footstep after footstep and walked nearer to him, I take a deep breath…
