Why did you leave me?

I got married and lost you! Then there was a series of sinister anonymous emails in the community that spoke ill of you and our friendship.

Dear Wombok,

Why did you leave me? My heart aches whenever I think of you!

When all around me people only see me as a foreign face, I couldn’t attract a single friendship from Australians. You are the only friend I’ve had since coming to Australia. I gravitated towards you for warmth and human companionship. I was eager to share with you the fine details in my daily life. I felt our two hearts beat with the same Vietnamese rhythm. I admired you for the objectivity in your judgement. You cheered me up with your bright, ready smiles and you made me feel less lonely in Australia. But wait there’s more!
