‘Friend’ is A Book You Can Open Again & Again (1)

 

Lilis told me to write about us, the five of us. To highlight each of our characters in a story which contains the day that we spent together … plus what i think about us. I haven’t even finished my writing about Eileen.. and now i’m still stuck on the idea,,, where to start?

My friendship with Lilis began since the 2ND grade of secondary school, this class has dozens of champions from grade 1 and they were all gathered in this class with no apparent reason! And why was i trapped here?? Lilis remember me as a stranger who introduce myself in front of her during the secondary school orientation. Precisely, when we were just about to start a life in secondary (junior high).

She was with her ex primary school friend, Lily. And me? Myself, felt inspired by a book that i can recall its title, was determined to made a lot of friends in this brand new place without a single friend on hand. At that moment, she was scared because of the strange on my look. She thought I was a psycho. : D

While my first year was spent most in the library with a friend named Meilisa, I don’t know where Lilis spent her days. But during the second year, she sat right across Susanti, my class seat mate. She was known as super smart girl with curvaceous body and super long hair that reach the bottom. Every time i saw her hair, I just wanted to take the scissors. While me, with short hair, large lens glasses, skinny body and buck tooth which makes my gaunt face look exactly like a skull.

She wasnt too nerdy as I thought, she is one of the coolest person I’ve ever known and not the hypocrite or two face kind of person infront of the teacher. But we’re just normal friends.

And we became closer 3 years later after the appearance of 2 others in our lives, Sherly and Julie. I had those long messy hair during my 2ND grade in high school, while Lilis throw away her messy hair, did a rebonding this time and slim her body by burning more than tens of kilograms.

Julie was known better as a girl with more successful experience in romance rather than Lilis, me and Sherly. The point is, we’ve never felt how it is to have a boyfriend during school time and Julie has all those experience since secondary school. Although for adults, there’s nothing so special about having relationships during your high school but it actually matters! Your dating experience put you on adults level while being singles means u are still categorized as children and innocent.

While Sherly still put a center split on her hair that triggered the ‘fungi’ nickname by Metha, me who remain anti-mobile phone and live as people in ancient times, Lilis with her unreachable mind, Julie has become a girl who captivated many male friends.

Pertemananku dengan Lilis dimulai disebuah kelas ketika SMP 2, kelas yang berisi puluhan juara kelas dari kelas 1 dan dikumpulkan dikelas ini tanpa sebab yang jelas.

Lilis mengingatku sebagai si aneh yang memperkenalkan diriku sendiri dan mengajaknya berkenalan waktu masa orientasi sekolah SMP, ketika kami baru saja akan memulai kehidupan di SMP. Ia dengan teman SDnya, Lily. Dan aku? sendiri, merasa terinspirasi dengan sebuah buku yang tidak dapat kuingat judulnya bertekad untuk mencari teman di tempat yang benar benar baru tanpa ada satupun bekas teman SDku yang masuk. Waktu itu, ia menganggapku aneh dan merasa takut karena disangkanya aku adalah seorang psikopat. 😀

Sementara di tahun pertama hari hariku habis di perpustakaan dengan seorang teman bernama Meilisa, aku tidak tahu dimana Lilis menghabiskan hari-harinya. Tetapi tahun kedua itu, ia duduk tepat diseberang Susanti, teman sebangkuku. Aku hanya mengenalnya sebagai si cewek super pintar dengan tubuh super montok dan rambut super panjang yang tentunya sangat membuatku ingin mengambil gunting. Sementara aku dengan rambut pendek, kacamata berlensa besar, tubuh kurus kering dan gigi menonggos keluar yang membuat wajah tirusku tampak persis seperti tengkorak.

Ia tidak senerd yang kusangka, tidak juga kutu buku seperti yang kukira, Ia termasuk salah satu orang paling cuek yang pernah kukenal dan bukan tipe tipe cari muka ke guru.

Tetapi persahabatan kami baru benar benar dimulai 3 tahun kemudian dengan 2 orang lainnya, Sherly dan Julie. Aku dengan rambut panjangku yang awut-awutan waktu SMU 2 , Lilis dengan rambut panjang yang normal kali ini dan tubuh langsing setelah berhasil membakar belasan kg yang ditimbunnya sewaktu SMP.

Ketika itu Julie lebih dikenal sebagai cewe dengan pengalaman percintaan yang berhasil dibanding Lilis, aku dan Sherly. Setidaknya, kami tidak mencicipi pacaran selama persejarahan SMU dan Julie telah menjajalinya sejak SMP. Meski di mata orang dewasa, pacaran sejak SMP bukan sesuatu yang istimewa tetapi pengalaman pacaran bisa membuatmu setara dengan orang dewasa sementara para single dikategorikan masih anak-anak dan polos.

Disaat Sherly masih mengutamakan rambut belah tengah yang membuatnya dipanggil si jamur oleh Metha, aku yang masih anti handphone dan hidup bagaikan orang di zaman purbakala, Lilis dengan tingkat kecuekan super tinggi; Julie sudah menjadi seorang gadis yang menawan hati banyak pria.
