My good friend lost a family member. I can imagine how the mother is devastated because their family is small. To add salt to the wound, one other family member became useless. He's like a zombie, only physically there but always high, I assume.
And this is why I always want a large family. You never know what can happen.
But I hope, there's a hikmah di sebalik kejadian.
Who knows, the other family member will finally realize that he now has to take charge, change, be there for his mother.
When I was little, I always sympathize those poor children who have to walk to school under the burning sun or the heavy rain.
Whenever I see them, I'd ask quietly why Mother, the woman who always fetched me to and fro the school, never stopped to offer them a ride.
Tak kesian ke...
So, I promised myself, after I got my driving license, I would do volunteering work and randomly offer stranger kids the rides that they need.
But it never happened.
I'm not really sure why.
My boyfriend was driving when he was stopped looking at an accident victim lying by the roadside.
The motorcyclists met an accident with a dumb lady who stood there doing nothing. He was obviously bleeding and his leg was deformed.
My boyfriend decided to take him to the hospital.
The boy was in my boyfriend's car. He told my boyfriend, "Mak cakap, kalau macam ni kena bawa pergi jumpa bomoh, bang!"
Ini bukan terseliuh main bola!
At least, my boyfriend is doing what I'm unable to bring myself to do.
Helping a complete stranger in trouble.
And he doesn't even mind the drops of blood staining his car seat.
"It's an old car anyway. I tak kesah pun."
And the more reasons to get a new, dashing car!
