It was almost last week of February, 1997, a month to go before I embark to my new journey to college life. It was around 4PM to 5PM in my Alma Maters computer lab while finishing my little project when I first saw her. She was just a sophomore then. She and her friend struggles in their own project. The issue? They don’t know how to cut a part of the paragraph to te taken to its new area. And they are using WordStar, the vintage wordstar, DOS version.. ^_^
Well, at first, I just observed them. Thinking that they can manage and finish their job before the lab closes. But two minutes had passed with them still stuck in the same problem. So that’s where I made my move to help them.
I asked them whats the problem, and she answers that they don’t know how to cut a part of the paragraph. So, because I knew how to solve it, I insist to help them solve their mind-bleeding problem.
I was in her back, she sitting in front of the screen with her friend beside her. Because she was in front of me, I lay my self on her back without giving some weight. There, I smell her hair and her sweet perfume, the smell that turned me on. While I teach them how to do it, I accidentally starred on her, and there, I saw her staring back and intelligently listening to every thing I said. And here, I tell them that the only way to cut that part of that paragraph is by first press [CTRL] + [k] + [b] to mark the beginning of the selected text . Then hold [CTRL] and press [k] + [k] to mark end of the selected text. After taken the selection press [CTRL] + [k] + [x] to make the cut, then take it to where you want to paste it once again by pressing [CTRL] + [k] + [v]. Teaching it with them and also demonstrating how it is done.
After my little teaching lesson, I let them and see if they understand what I just discussed. When I saw that they now can do it, I felt sad. Because I knew that it’s the end of our little conversation.
So while I walk away from them for me to get home. I stared back at her for the last time, thinking, that someday we will meet and be together again….
And here the journey begun…
