Been visiting some new apartments recommended by my brother's agent.
The distance between new HDB buildings are getting closer, unlike our current estate.
If we lived in such a modern estate, I may not have noticed you.
I live on 15th storey, and you, the 7th. Looking out of my window, I can see your room.
One night when I was trying to take a break, I walked to the window, and happened to see you lying on your bed, burying your head in your teddy bear.
Those shrugging shoulders, that body shiver, and your head buried... Were you crying?
Since then, glancing in the direction of your apartment became a habit.
Sometimes when I'm working late at night, I realised I'm not alone. The light in your room made me feel like I have a companion.
One day when I felt unwell, I took leave from work. And of course, I walked to the window unknowingly.
If your apartment were on the 6th and not the 7th, my view would have been obstructed by that tree.
If my apartment were on the 16th floor and not the 15th, I wouldn't have been able to see beyond your window. And I wouldn't have seen you cry.
An 8-storey distance.
Have you watched the the Taiwan drama, "My Queen"? 8 is infinite distance.
Would we ever get a chance to meet in reality?
