tipu la nak hidup..



          It was around 2pm.I was sweeping the floor. No one else was in the house. I just finished washing the dishes, Just before I moved to the store to get the mop , there was a knock on the door. With a loud.".Assalamualaikum"...Suara tak familiar. I jengok through the keyhole...
         A woman in her late fifties was there standing at the door. Then again.."Assalamualaikum "
         "Waalaikummussalam " I answered. And opened the door.
         "Ya ? " I asked.
         "Minta maaf na saya ganggu sat.saya ni nak minta bantuan derma sikit.Anak saya sakit teruk.cancer. Dia dah tak dak harapan dah doktor kata."
         I was caught by surprise, tak tau nak cakap apa.Then she continued her story.

         " Saya ni duit sekupang pun tak dak dalam tangan, nak bawa makanan pi tengok dia .Doktor kata bagilah makan apa pun.sebab dah tak dak harapan. " She explained.
         "Saya ni dah jadi tak malu dah, rata saya minta sedekah untuk anak saya"
         "Suami pi mana ? " I asked.
         " Pak dia tinggai kami lama dah.Tambah2 dengar anak dia sakit, langsung tak balik " sambil menggaru-garu kepala dia.
          I looked at her.Yes, she looked worried , nampak muka susah hati, pakai baju buruk, selipar jepun..Her fingernails not well kept.serpih sana sini..
           Memang nampak seorang ibu miskin yang sedang menanggung kesusahan.
         "Tunggu sat na." I said.
         I came out bawa kain batik sehelai, and RM 20 in my hand.
         "Nah banyak ni saja saya boleh tolong."
         With a big grin she took the money and the kain batik.
         "Terima kasih na, terima kasih banyak2."
         "Jaga anak elok2 na " I said before she left .

         That same evening at 530 I went to pasar malam. Pusing2 cari sayur, suddenly I spotted her. She was laughing away.Walking with her was a girl in her early 20s. I stared at her, both were laughing..happily.If that was her daughter she was telling me..the girl looked ok.sihat wal'afiat.
          I went to her.When she saw me , muka dia pucat toreh tak berdarah...
          "Ni ke anak kak yang sakit cancer tu?.kesian dia."
          Her daughter terpinga2..The elder one just stood there macam patung cendana. I left them and headed for the fish stall.
          When I was about to get into the car ,there she was, berjalan dengan barang2 penuh di tangan.Anak dia mengekor di belakang..
          Memang kita tak tau hal sebenarnya.I tak mau create a story to explain why she did that.But if she really had a husband..that man memang %&*+?#@...words alone cant explain..
        Men oh men....
