It was almost 7p.m. I was on my way home with a friend bila tiba2 I had cramps.
it was ugly.
We worked long hours, d task was tedious, memang saya tak tahan.
I called Acho, asking him to fetch me, because no way I could drive after getting a jap.
"Keter ko camner?" he asked.
" gasakla... besok boleh ambik"saya cakap guna kepala lutut bila sakit perut.
"Esok ko kerja lagi x?" he asked, I was on different schedule at that time.
" besok last day, pakai keter lain boleh kott", again, otak saya taim cenggini memang selalu kat lutut.#sigh#.
"Orang datang ngan kawanla.. ko dah g klinik ke?" he asked, again.
"Kat klinik ni, tapi nanti tunggu kat XXXXX".
My friend offered to accompany me in case Acho would be late.
I told her not too.
Partly because she was exhausted too, mainly deep down I know Acho would come n fetch me as fast as he could.
Tak sempat kawan saya balik rumah, Acho dah sampai.
His friend drove my car, I have a ride with Acho.
My friend bid goodbye.
Saya tidur sepanjang jalan. Sampai di rumah, saya tinggalkan semua benda dalam kereta, masuk rumah terus tidur.
D jap always put me to deep sleep.
Or maybe, saya memang paksa diri untuk tidur supaya x rasa sakit.
The next morning, I woke up fresh, put on fresh clothes,
semua heavy bundles dah berlonggok kat tepi pintu.
I picked up all those things, took d car key n off I go.
Tak payah fikir apa2.
Only this time was different.
Kawan saya datang lambat. Bila sampai mukanya miserable.
She was in deep trouble.
I thought by asking her to go home earlier, wud given her ample time to finish off d task.
Tapi dia pun demam malam tu. Told u, penat betul kerja tu..
She was hungry. She asked her husband to buy some food. He refused. So she ended up eating raisins which she bought for d children.
Actually I know her husband, ok je orangnya..
mungkin masa tu dia ingat my friend ni gurau kot...
Dia cerita sambil ketawa2. Saya pun ketawa2 juga.
Ketawa sedih sebenarnya..
Saya tak boleh bayang kalau saya sakit demam, n rasa lapar orang suruh saya makan raisins je. Walaupun bergurau.
Mau saya menangis sepanjang malam kot.
In time like that, panjang saya bersyukur dalam hati ada adik macam Acho.
Bila dalam kesusahan, saya tau Acho will always there for his sister(s).
Happy birthday Bro.
u r a gem!
