Tiap pagi bila bukak tingkap depan, selain tengok kucing dan tupai, 'dia' ada aje kat depan tu tapi dah 3 hari dia takde. Semalam I tanya TB dengan niat bergurau tak berapa nak bergurau "dia buat apa sekarang nih ek?". Jawapan TB buat I lebih sedih "kalau dia ada, sorang pun tak kisah" tapi cepat aje I jawab defensively "ehhh.. sape kata .. I kisah".
'Dia' yang dimaksudkan ialah dia yang banyak berjasa dengan I sekeluarga. Banyak sangat kenangan indah disamping kenangan masam manis selama bersamanya. Nak tulis nih pun tersekat2.. terpandang2 wajah dia ... ishhh... stop it, sampai bila nak bengkakkan mata? Terlebih airmata ke?
Almost 11 tahun bersamanya, of course kita dah anggap dia sebahagian dari famili. In fact I would consider her as my youngest baby. Bila dia sakit, cepat2 kita hantar ke 'doktor'. Selalunya doktor mesti charge beratus2 lemon tapi takpe kalau tu menjanjikan dia sihat untuk terus bergerak menabur bakti.
Dear baby Ara ...
I love you so much but I can't keep you forever. It's about time we got you someone else to take care of you. Who knows maybe that someone can take care of you a lot better than us. If I have my way, I would have kept you for as long as I live but I just can't. I hope you'd take care of yourself and be humble to your new owner. Don't give him unnecessary problems, ok?
Baby Ara, soon after we bid our final goodbye, T and I cried as though a member of our family has died. We cried n hugged each other real tight. Abah n D were equally sad but you know men being men, their tear ducts seem malfunction.
I have so many things to write about u, u n me, u n t, u n d, and of course you n abah, but suffice to say now that we all love you very much and miss you terribly! Ara, promise me that you be good, okay?
