Well, I pretty like/hate the ending. The lines were short but then you'll be left with thousand thoughts. It needed me to re-call the scenes before the confrontation to know what Shane meant. Right now I am still left figuring things out. Here are the last lines:
S: Aren't we best friends? What can't you tell me?
J: Shane, You say best friends can tell each other anything. Fine... Then, I really want to know if you still be my friends after you hear my secret. Shane... You're not just a friend to me, I REALLY LOVE YOU.
(Jonathan walks out)
S: Wait! I have a secret for you too. I always knew that you were forced by the teacher. I always knew you didn't volunteer to be my friend. At first, I want to hurt you and get you in trouble. But then I realized that I couldn't do it. I'm really too lonely. Jonathan Kang... You really are my best friend!
Before that, they had scenes like: Shane leaned on Jonathan's while they were both riding on a same bike. He initiated to have Sex with him and they did it full of love and passion. He'll be upset whenever Jonathan will ignore him or we'll not be around during his games.He also told Carrie he can't lose Jonathan. With Shane's gesture I can see that he feels the same way with his best friend. I was expecting that the reply of Shane was like "I love you too". I feel like my tears were ready to burst with the scene. It was heavy because of the situation. Ouch as in ouch, ouch! It was a sad ending and it made all of this emotional-melancholy sucker out on me again. I feel for Jonathan, I was like Jonathan at some time of my life. It's raining here, the story was sad, it made me feel gloomy all of a sudden.
I was left hanging by these thoughts: What's the deal with the ending? Is Shane telling the truth? Does Shane loves Jonathan, but can't be more than best friends? Why did he make love with Jonathan? Why didn't he hurt Jonathan, since he was aware that his friendship was arranged by the teacher? Why did he continue to be friends with him after grade school? Why do he care too much for his best friend? Why did Shane act like he feels the same for him, but he didn't confirm?
