To read Part One
As you probably know from my previous story. I am now living with 2 roommate Nisha and Tini. Before continuing the story. It is better for me to introduce it to you and take you a little closer to our story.
Nisha is a 26 years old work for television company in Mampang area. I am sure you know what. It used to be or might still be one of the best TV station in Indonesia. She has a long hair up to her waist and usually she tied it into a high sporty pony tail for work or curled it if she is out for a date or hangout. She is pretty tall around 160cm not as tall as me obviously as I am 172cm. I am almost always the tallest one in the group. I always envy her straight hair. She always look flawless. Though according to her she prefers my curly hair. That is why she likes to curl her hair a lot. Eventually that will break her hair from too much of curling iron.
Tini is somehow has similar body type to Nisha. Same hight, same olive tone, and same hair. Except Tini prefers to let her hair down to her waist unless she is cooking or writing then she would loosely tied her hair up. Tini doesn't seem to care about her look that much. The benefit of working as a writer and work from home, she said. She doesn't need to meet client/buyer like I did or Nisha too. She would just wear a loose t-shirt with pants or sometimes with flowery dress that look almost too big for her. She is also the skinniest out of all the 3 of us. That would be the subject of envy from me and Nisha as we can gain weight easily.
As for me, I am taller than most person. My skin color is light brown, definitely Indonesian looking. Both mom and dad are sundanese by birth. I know for sure that I look attractive. My friends has been telling me that I could pass as model or actress. I haven't been able to get an acting job so far. But, I am not done trying. I hope curly hair can be a trend sooner. So I can use my curly hair as my asset. Most of the time, the directors prefer long straight hair girl. They actually asked me to straighten my hair but I refused to do so. I want people to know me as curly hair girl. I know it seems very naive for an actress to refuse directors order. But if it is director like Riri Riza, Joko Anwar, or Nia Dinata I might do it without hesitation. But I don't feel like doing it for FTV directors.
It has been 2 weeks that we are living together now. I went hangout with Nisha almost every weekend when I am available. Tini is always reluctant to go out with us. Though tonight was different. She is actually very adamant about going out with us. Nisha said she wants to go to Television Award. The television company where she works is going to host an award show and as a staff, she has the luxury to get the entrance ticket for 2 extra person. She was going to take me and one guy that she currently like. However, Tini was very adamant on wanting to go with us. Nisha agrees on taking Tini out with us, since she rarely asked anything from us. It might be a way to get closer to her too. Of course both me and Nisha would like to get to know our roommate more. It was kinda weird that her reason to go out with us was because it was Friday the 13th (Jumat Kliwon). I guess she is still infatuated with the mystery novel. I am sure she will get over this mysterious feeling if she changes her novel genre.
The show was suppose to be a huge award show with so many other actors, actresses, singers, and celebrities. I dressed up nicely for the event hoping a director or talent seeker might spot me in between thousand others who come to see the award..naive huh!?
Nisha said she might have to work during the award. She has to usher the celebrities that might appear on stage. So she will be on the backstage most of the time. I am glad Tini came with me. Otherwise I will be bored if I have to talk to a guy that Nisha likes. More like, I don't want Nisha to be jealous as she is my best friend now.
We scolded Tini for not wearing a nicer outfit. She said she doesn't care because all the attention will go to the stage and the celebrities anyway. We tried to convince her to change her outfit or borrow one of our outfit for the night. She was just shaking her head firmly and said she is okay with the one she was wearing which was an oversized white dress. It was too bad. Tini is actually pretty. But she always covers it up with ugly oversize clothes.
None of us has car yet. We took taxi to JCC Senayan. The award took place in JCC Senayan's auditorium. This is gonna be my very first award show. I am so excited and I glanced at Tini. She looks worried and concern. I asked her what happened. She just said that she is worried if thing goes bad. What thing? I said. She just looked away to where Nisha was, underneath the big stage close to the festival seats. I shrugged my shoulder..ah just one of Tini's weird moment. Nothing to be worried about.
Yet oh boy I was so wrong.
And I would tell you what happened on the next post. I have to re-do my Tax report (SPT) before the deadline. Stay tune for more terrifying story as I will reveal the rest later.
