Perhitungan Terakhir

By | March 24, 2017

I walked into the bookshop searching for a particular type of magazine.

I found it after a while.

In an impatient manner, I flipped over the pages quickly.    image

I didn’t know what I would find.

When I found it, I remembered my heart leapt for joy.

I was laughing. Probably not hysterically.

As I did not wish to attract too much attention.

With the magazine tightly within my grasp, I walked to the counter and paid for it.

My mind was cluttered with so many things yet I could not find a coherent element in all those that surged into my mind.

My first short story in Bahasa Malaysia has finally been published in Dewan Siswa.

I jumped onto my motorcycle and left quickly.

I was smiling from ear to ear.

My imagination was taking control of me.

I felt a strong gush of wind slapping my face.

My hair was like being blown away.

A sensation that I never experienced before.

It dawned upon me.

I have completely forgotten about my helmet.

Two decades and seven years later, it still feels like yesterday.
