You will see a lot
about Eddie from this page, he is one of the person I have talked
and cared for with my life, and he has been there to listen to
me. Now, I want to share with you all my friendship with him,
and hope that things do work out for him in Florida with Mike,
his long time boyfriend. (Mike is a cutie too!) hehe
It was a Saturday night of Spring/Summer of 1992. Me and
my boyfriend then Eduardo, we picked up a friend of ours, Erik,
to go to U4ia, used to be a popular club to dance and enjoy (now
it's more a mix to younger crowd). Eduardo and I was dancing on
the first dance floor and when I looked up, I saw this nelly,
slim, golden shiny hair boy dancing with a lady (that time, the
first impression I had was that he is different and that I felt
like I known him for ages), and so I kept staring at him at times,
of course, he stared back too, and probably wondering what the
heck was I looking at him for...
continued somehow bumping into each other or closer to each other
at the club, I didn't say a thing to him nor he did to me, and
the night went on.
Leaving U4ia at 4am in the morning, Erik spotted Eddie walking
out as well, while we were on the shuttle bus to our car parked
down the street at U4ia's 2nd parking lot, Erik made a few noises
to drive Eddie's attention, then at the parking lot, we drove
by Eddie and his friend. Erik wanted to meet him and we decided
to turn around and Erik invited him for breakfast, his friend
was a bit skeptical but they agreed at last, we went to eat at
My Friends. Erik talked and tried to bring up a conversation with
Eddie, while me and Eduardo sitting there quietly watching the
At the end of our meal, Erik tried a few times to get Eddie's
phone number, but we can tell that Eddie was hesitant to give
out, yet, he finally did. Erik was so happy about it. The following
weekend, Erik called and said that Eddie wanted our number, we
wondered why but we told Erik that he can give it to him.
On one Friday evening, we picked up Erik and went clubbing
that night at Smart Bar, Erik met Mike (Eddie's now boyfriend)
and we hang out, had a blast. I remembered a day we all drive
the same car to pick up Eduardo from his work and the car broke
down on the highway. We were with Mike, Erik, Dusan (a mutual
straight friend), Eduardo and myself. Eduardo thought the car
needed oil and poured a lot into it, and realized he over did
it so he went under the car and tried to open the gauge to let
the oil out... While trying his best, making a lots of heavy breathing
and his consistency, Mike made a comment "So, is he as good
as he is with the cars?" We all went into comma for a bit
and hoping the Dusan didn't hear that...
Eddie at that time was dating David Gonzalez (whom passed
away a few years ago), while Erik dating Mike. Eddie would hang
out with me more often and talk to me all the time, as well as
Mike would. I became an ear to both parties. Both relationships
broke up and by faith, Mike and Eddie started seeing each other.
Mike, Eddie, Eduardo and I did a lot of things, we hang
out, go clubbing, do dinner (Mike most of the time was busy with
work so he couldn't join us, since he is a workaholic). Mike is
a very successful person, he has accomplish a lot...
time, our trip to NYC, the 4 of us drove there, and had a blast,
we met a few of my friends and hang out with everyone, that night,
we actually bar hopping to about 5 bars a night. Eddie and Mike
were kissing heavily on their bed while making all the wooshie
noises, prevented me and Eduardo to sleep. :P
During the NYC trips, Eddie and Mike did something bad to
us... They pretended that they were attacked by robbers and running
back to the hotel all breathless and crying.. I thought it was
real and tried to comfort them, and actually, they had their faces
in the bed covered and laughing madly...
And that was 3 years ago (1995) when Eddie and Mike started
Eddie and I did a lot of things with others and together,
but there are a few things we did that I will never forget...
And here's a few of them as I can remember... (this is not on
any order what-so-ever, and it will be updated again).
1. The $99 ROCK... Eduardo asked me one day to get
a vacuum for him, cause he got the flowbee haircut thing and apparently
our vacuum cleaner is not strong enough, so we went to W. 65th's
K-Mart. After getting the vacuum, a black guy approached us at
the parking lot, he said he has a camcorder and a tv/vcr combo
for sale, and me and Eddie got very hype about it and wanted it,
so we asked him to meet us at a place and we rushed to the laundromat
where I used to work and my home to get $, we scattered as much
changes as possible, roll of quarters, roll of pennies, etc. We
paid him $99 (a few in pennies) and then without thinking, we
put the box (unopened) into Eddie's car and drove home, on the
way, I said to him.. "Watch, it's going to be a big rock..."
Sure enough, once we opened the box, it's just a BIG ROCK. I laughed,
Eddie pissed.. But it was a good experience...
2. The OLD LADY... Over at West 117th, we just got
out of Revco and was heading to my house. We were waiting for
the light to change and then we realized, Eddie drove the car
over the line and was blocking the walkway... An old lady with
her cane, tried to walk through, she was walking a bit handicapped
and was cursing Eddie while going AROUND his car from the back.
Eddie didn't want to look, he just cover his head with a napkin
3. Mike's DRUNK party... At Mike's go-away party,
we all got sooo drunk that we started doing stupid things... One
thing we did is with the music playing in the background, Eddie
sat on my lap and while Dave Bohm has Jae on his. And with the
song of the music, Eddie and Jae pretended to be having sex with
me and Dave... It was crazy like a stage act... (Eddie puked many
times that night)
4. The OUTLET STORE... Eddie wanted to get a few
cheap shirts from a Outlet Store, he thought it's like on I-71,
begged me to go with him after work (I work at Strongsville) and
we drove his car all the way on I-71 South. Driving, driving,
and driving until we hit Columbus, Ohio! And finally we saw the
Outlet Store just South of Columbus' Downtown... Guess what we
got? Eddie got a shirt which he never worn it, and I got 2 shirts,
we only spent $10 in all...
5. JENNY HWANG'S HOUSE... Eddie went with me to a
Organization of Chinese American of Greater Cleveland's Pot-luck
dinner and we arrived at Dr. Hwang's house, gosh, that house is
beautiful, inside and out... Eddie and I talked about moving into
some house like this and that we will have a very funky design.
:) It was just a dream.. So, he insisted a photo being taken this
way he can remember it. That night we head for Columbus, Ohio
and partied all night!
6. OUR TRIPS... Our trips to out-of-state places
were fun, Eddie and I were all had a blast wherever we go, we
also have companies of other friends along our trips... Jason
with us to NYC, Mark with us to San Francisco, Eric to Toledo
and Columbus, Dave & Jae to Pittsburgh and Columbus.
The MS. EDDIE... During one of the Halloween in Cleveland,
Eddie went out in drag and boy, I was sooo shocked He looked so
different and it's like every time he approaches me, I have to
get away... Till this day, I still can't imagine him in drag...
8. The PICKUP TRUCK Tailgating... During a Saturday
evening, Eddie and I decided to go shopping at South Park Mall
(at Strongsville, Ohio), Eddie was driving about 65mph and we
were on the left lane of South bound. There were a pickup truck
behind us very close to us. Eddie started to speed up and tried
to move to the right lane, but there were many cars, so we stayed
on the left till the Rt 82 Exit. We almost missed the Exit and
we turned right inmediately and proceeded toward the mall. Before
turning left into the Mall, we noticed that the pickup truck was
still behind us. I told Eddie to keep driving around the Mall
in circle and let see how far the pickup will follow. At a Stop
Sign, one red color pickup parked next to us while another one
behind us. So, the one next to us sped up in front and started
slowing down, while the one in the back tailgated us closer. I
told Eddie to turn left inmediately to see if they are following,
they did. So I told Eddie to drive to the Police Station that
is about a block away from the Mall while I used the cellular
phone to call 911. They followed, but they stopped at TGI Fridays
that is a building before the Police station. We reported them
in and many cops drove around looking for them. It was an experience...
9. The EDGEWATER CRUISING... This happened before
Eddie and Mike were dating.. It was so funny, I still remembered
it all. :) That afternoon, Eddie was so horny and he wanted to
try being cruised at Edgewater Park (a known gay crusing section).
So, we drove around and looking for the right candidate to park
his car next to... We saw a guy on a nice pickup truck and we
parked Eddie's car next to him a bit then we moved away hoping
he would follow. He did. The guy then pulled next to my side of
the car instead of Eddie's. Eddie asked me to roll down the window
and they talked through me... I was very nervious cause I was
dating Eduardo that time... Eddie asked him how come he didn't
park to his side, and the guy said cause he doesn't know if Eddie
wanted but he liked me... After a few talks, we left, Eddie was
10. XY Magazine... About February of 1998, I received a
letter from XY Magazine that they sent to everyone, solicitating
anyone that has came out last year (1997) who would be interested
to have their pictures in XY. After a week, I decided to send
in a picture of me and Eddie taken at a Chinese Christmas Gala
that I organized. Without being even cared if I would get in,
on April 1998, we found out we were in the magazine, so we had
our 15 minutes of fame. ;) Unfortunately, they only put my name
on the picture not his.. He was like "Call them up and reprint
the picture with my name in it!" SNAP hehe.. ain't he cute?
11. The BEER CAN... (Okay, you can't know this one..
hehe, Eddie loves to make fun of it...)
12. OVER TANNED Goldenboy... Eddie enjoys going tanning
so one day he came and his face and neck is all reddish like a
roasted lobster. My mom noticed that his hair was also goldenly
shiny so we called him the Goldenboy. ;) If you see him around,
just call "Hey you nelly goldenboy!" :) He will turn
around and smile. ;)
13. GIRLY EDDIE IN SAN FRANCISCO... I have never
been so embarrased then.. hehe.. he walked down the street wiggling
his butt and having a small flower on his right ear... acting
all gay and happy. ;) Even did this infront of a martial artist
that knows me!
14. LIPS TEASING... Eddie and I love to teash each
other, licking our lips like we are sluting over each other, but
deep inside we both know that we can't even bare the idea of seeing
each other with no clothes on.. It's like looking at a brother
naked.. ewww. ;) I still love you Eddie. :)
I've known Eddie for about 5 years now (since he was 19y.o.) and
I've shared a lot of my life with him, as some people called us
(me, Edaurdo and Eddie) the Three Musketeers... Eddie knows me
well and know all the in and out of Johnny Wu, I felt like a brother
just left me... No, we never dated nor we have though of each
other sexually, it's more a brotherly love we have for each other.
I am sure he is happy and excited while driving down there and
I am sure I'll see him again in the future, either visiting him
or he visiting ME! ;) (ok, visiting the rest of the people too).
And this is what this page is for, a dear/brother/close
friend named Eddie H. Frye, ok Eddie, I know you will be reading
this, so make sure your head is not already flying on the ceiling.
With Love... Johnny
