I want to tell you a story about one of my closest friends. Her name is Prilla, or I would love to call her Prilski. So we’ve met for the first time at high school, but it didn’t mean anything. I mean, she’s just an ordinary high school girl, and I’m just an ordinary high school girl. She seemed really quiet and kind. Well, that’s a typical characteristic you see on introvert people. So basically nothing much I can say about her at the earlier years I’ve known her.
Things changed when I was in the same faculty with her. She’s probably my first best friend at college. She’s so quiet but I’m intrigued by it, so I dug deeper about her. Surprisingly, there’s so many interesting things about her. She is the one who introduced me to Grey’s anatomy, and I guess, that is the first American TV series that accompanied me at growing up. (You know, about the quotes on the opening and ending at every episode…)

I started to call her Prilski after we called each other’s name with additional –ski word after our real name. And to make it cuter, we often cut the name into just one syllable. And now, it feels weird to call her by her real name, Prilla. Lol. I like Prilski more. And it makes me feel closer to her somehow. Prilski is the girl who really independent. She has apartment, and don’t think that having apartment is prestigious or what. It actually means that you have to be ready to clean your place regularly, throw the garbages regularly, buy gas to cook, buy foods, settle the monthly payments, do laundry alone, bring the mineral water bottles alone with groceries on your hand. It’s like you have your own house and you have to manage it by yourself. While actually in my place, we have maids to do the laundry, they also do the cleaning, and we don’t have to worry about gas or mineral waters to drink. So I thought that she was really cool, you know, doing all of that.

The soundtrack for our life would be Anggun, Maliq and D’essentials, Maroon 5 and maybe Rihanna. So she has this iPod. With lots of cool songs on that thing. And we always listened to the music at her room, or car. Most of times, she is the person who introduced me to the hits playlists.
Maybe because I love her too much, and there’s the insecurity within my mind. I always feel sad when she has this things with other friends. I felt envy, I felt jealous. But I know I was wrong, so I can do nothing about it, except being in a silent mode towards her. For a couple of times. Made her feeling confused. I was so sorry for her. But I think this is the reason of my realization, that she was important for me. She is important for me. So I started to be more open to her. To tell my mind to her. And fortunately, we could tell each other’s feeling. And that’s a good start right?

All in all, I just want to tell you that being with her is irreplaceable. She has this place in my heart that could not be filled by other persons. I don’t know where the future may bring us to. But I hope that I can always be with her. I can always be there for her. And I hope that Prilski and Me will be friends forever.
