A hectic weekend indeed. Friday was Federal Territorry Day and I was out with my colleague Kak Yati to Pavilion. (My first trip there actually). We had a quick bite at King’s Pie, queue for about half an hour for the oh-so-famous JCo donuts and watched Sweeney Todd (wicked) at the plush GSC cinema’s seat. Pavilion was okay – definitely will be my next step shopping heaven after this. After that we went to Queen’s Park but did not buy anything there. Night, Afrita did invite me for one of her boyfriend’s football game (Lut, her not-so-steady boyfriend was our junior back in Bukit Jalil) but I have to pass (again!). *Don’t feel like in ‘cheered-crowd-stadium’ kinda mood*
Saturday was cousin Alicia’s engagement in Seremban. She looked oh-so-delicious in that fucshia dress (I think fucshia is the new black). The ceremony was crowded with her UTP friends (which none of them were my acquantainces) so I survived the day by hanging out with my little cousins (though one of my cez made a remark that the photographer (Alicia’s friend) kept snapping in my direction. duh?). I retire early that night – so tired!
Sunday – me Ani Dz and Eda had our last-week-postponed-date today. Around 12 o’clock I left the house and straight away secured us the Gameplan tickets for 2 o’clock show. The Rock was hilarious! But there were few heartrending scenes in that movie as well. After movie, we had Ani’s another 26th birthday celebration since Eda was so kind to offer to bake her oh-so-sinful brownies. We thought we wanted to go to some park and rilex and play cards (and reminisce those Sabah moments) but suddenly I received a call from a pay-phone.
“Syeda, ko kat mana?” I straight away recognized the caller from the other line. In fact she has texted me an hour ago asking me to come to Midvalley to join her but I politely refuse since I already made plans with Ani, Eda and Dz.
“…Tolong ambik aku..” She stopped there. I didn’t suspect anything yet at that time.
“Aku dengan member2 aku la ..Sorry…” I felt sorry I had to turn her down again.
The line got quiet for a moment. And later I heard a bursting tears on her end. ‘Owh sudah…!‘ I murmured to myself.
“Tunggu situ. Lagi half an hour aku sampai..” I don’t have any other choice but to come pick her up.
I have to excuse myself from the clan and apologize giler2 since we could not spend time as promised. I’m sure they would understand..
I was too worried about her that I could not remember where did I parked my car! Dang betul la!! It took me almost 20 minuted running up and down the stairs (the lift was damn lembab) and finally I found it! *Padanla tk jumpe my car ..apparently my car was on the side of no-parking area but later when there were too many people coming in to the complex, they just park wherever they like and made me lost sight of where I parked my car! *
I fetched her at Midvalley and stopped the car at the curb of Dome. She has her sunglasses on so I can’t really saw her face.
“What happened?” I asked gently. I even have a hint already on what’s going on but I just kept quiet until I heard from her myself.
“Aku dah break-up…” and she suddenly bursts into tears and this time it was even more horrible than the one I heard on the phone. We hugged for about 2 minutes until the Midvalley’s traffic guard ask us to move from the curb. I brought her to Pelita in Bangsar and ask her to reiterate what had happened between them too. Apparently the Mc-I-Don’t-Like had already broken up with her 1st girlfriend and also asking for a time-out from her (my friend) with a sole (and oh-so-overly-used) “I need space” reason. wtf?
She sobs and asks me to say that eventually he’ll come back to her side. I said I will not say the untrue only just to make her better. She needs to believe that it’s over between them especially since those things are highly expected. Regardless whatever reasons he gives, she should have seen this coming, be it from whatever angle. She should have prepared a very thick shield surrounding her heart (when she decided to be with him) because it might break anytime. Like a ticking-bomb.
I can’t say that “he’ll be back” to make her feel better. But I certainly can bring her to karaoke to make her feel better. After that I send her home and on my way back I texted “Be strong. at the very least believe that God has arranged somethg BETTER for u.xoxo”
Been there, done that, in that kinda situation. But I think there’s a slack in her situation whereby she should have expected these things happen (when she decides to commit to him) so that when it actually happens, she would be less heartbroken. And she has promised me before that she’ll accept whatever fate/ending God has to give, as long as she be with him even for a limited time.
Sometimes we think that it is better to be with somebody and be a failure than be alone and seize success. We think it’s better to be with someone and be hurt than be alone and not hurting. We think we’ll be prepared when the storm strikes but we always won’t be. I guess denial always runs in our blood. Am I rite? Or am I just rite?
