batang tegak di malam jumaat

"Tapi...ada lagi sikit lah. Kejap lagi," I answered.

"Sambung baca besok. Dah...dah...tutup lampu!" The boss was giving a demand. Not an instruction. It was a demand.

I grumbled in my heart. There would be only few chapters before I finished the book. Besides, the countess was about to melt in the arms of a marquess! Oh, come on...I need to know how did that happened. She was resisting to his love for a quarter of the book. 

After switching off the light, I went under the blanket. Slowly, I took the torchlight under the pillow. A naugthy smile lit up my face. Let's see what was going to happen to this Kingdom of Dreams. Let's see whether the Scottish lass was going to succumb to that English noble's persuasion. Dreamy...dreamy...dreamy...

Suddenly I felt this surprising pain on my thigh. And on my knees. Ish!

I got up and went out of the room.

"Ada benda gigit kat paha ni, bu..." I said slowly. I hoped my father won't hear me. He would surely scold me for not listening to him earlier.

Too bad. He heard me.

"Itu sebab orang suruh tutup lampu tu tadi. Kelkatu banyak! Nak kena sapu pagi besok!" His voice was loud in the dark.

My mother was a type of person who would keep her mouth shut when my father was talking. She took some lotion and applied that on my thigh. 

I could not see the colour of my skin under the dim light but I felt that it was swollen a bit. When I wanted to go back to my room, I felt their wings on the floor. I knew that I had even stepped on some of them. Ergghh...

As I put my head on the pillow, I heard my mother's voice talking to my father, 
"Hujan-hujan macam ni...banyaklah yang batang yang tegak kan, yah?"

My father laughed. 

"Mestilah," he answered.

I covered my ears with the pillow. Oooopppss...

"Pagi besok kita carilah, yah!" my mother said.

"You nak cari dekat mana?"

"Dekat tempat ayahlah, mana lagi."

Okay. I put the Kingdom of Dreams under the pillow. I just read the romance scene before the lights went out just now. But I was not prepared to hear...

"Okay. Besok pagi-pagi kita keluar. Kita cari. Moh tido," my father said.

The next morning, as expected, we had to sweep the death body of the termites. Such a waste. It was sad to see that the termites ended their life quite easily.

As I drove all the way back to my late grandparents' place at Rembau, my father told me to slow down. Then he asked me to stop at a hut near the road. It belonged to the aborigins.

I saw that.

"Batang-batang cendawan ni tegak bila orang nampak kelkatu waktu malam bila hujan,"
my mother said.

Oh. Okay.
