I have always been good about mixing strangers. Silversoul is a living proof to that. It is actually a mixture of my different friends that clicked being together, thus our group was formed.
My belief that I have a capacity to do that ended on my birthday last Saturday. The Silversoul and I actually planned to go clubbing that night after dinner over my house (we had food leftovers, [thank god it wasn't rocking salt and used cooking oil mixed with soy sauce] because they're arrival at the house was supposed to look like a surprise visit, my family was stunned to see that I have visitors after I told them in the morning that I won't be having any), but I had to change that when Bon and Rj requested us to go to Bon's place instead. He promised me that we could do the videoke there, which is actually the reason why they agreed to come.
It was too late when I realized it was a mistake. Roy did a very unwelcomed comeback and the Silversoul felt unwelcomed there, too. There was just no connection between the two groups, and with Menchie and Bon's now-official girlfriend/live-in partner, Rem being around only added tension among the girls.
It felt more sad when someone said that it could have been better if we just stayed at my place. They said my father really seemed to want to spend more time with us and it felt really sad that I have been more concerned about spending my birthday with other people than with my own family.
In the end, the two groups somehow made it to meet halfway. They must have figured out that it was my birthday after all and they tried at least to put that 'Happy' word into it.
