(This is my first true story in “strange language” hihihihihi…)
I surprised when he told me that he has relationship with a married woman. I didn’t care indeed because I have nothing to do with her. The only thing I cared was him. He is my favorite friend. An educated man, has a good job, smart and has nice personality.
“What do you mean ?”, I asked him calmly.
“Come on, I am a man ! do you think I am too naive ? Everything I did has the reason, and I did it because I have some reason”, He started our argument.
“Then tell me your reason”, I asked him.
“Now promise me first not to tell anyone”, he said.
“Keep my words”, I answered. Then I joked him to put my mouth key into his bag.
“Well,” he said, “I shall be honest with you. If you think this is a sad story, just omitted it because I’m telling you the truth. She is a desperate woman with 2 kids. She has no connection with her husband right now and she has problem with her financial. All I do is just want to help her”.
“Hmm...desperate woman, has no connection with her hubby and got problem with financial…What did she expect to you ? or what did you expect to her ?”, I asked him. I thought he despaired but he was apparently fine.
“Nothing”, he said “but ofcourse my passion still work on. Don’t you know, I love her and everything about her. Is it ridiculous ?”
“No, it is not. The ridiculous one was when you told me about your ex-girlfriend. You asked her to wear a short skirt, black stocking and high heels. Then you had sex with her in the office restroom.” I said.
“Hahahahahaha…”, we laughed.
“Ay, that was life”, he started seriously. “So what do you think ?”
“That’s your business”, I tried to be wise.”You have your own life. Lucky you because she has been seperated with her husband. Well, if you thought has no connection and separate were equal. It wouldn’t be necessary wheter it’s right or wrong. You only want to make her happy, don’t you ?”. He agreed.
“Go on, you look happy recently”, I wished.
Sudah setahun lebih saya tidak makan siomay. Bukannya lagi ngidam, tapi secara makanan ini langka sekali di
Dan minggu lalu kerinduan saya akan siomay terobati sudah. Dia cuma siomay jalanan. Yang di jual oleh seorang ‘mas’ yang medoknya kental banget. Saya lebih bersyukur lagi karena dia datang di bulan Ramadhan. Di bulan puasa dimana keinginan makan ini-itu lebih besar dibanding bulan-bulan biasa. Bayangkan, saya kalap sekali dengan siomay selama seminggu ini.
Jadilah setiap hari saya janjian dengan ‘mas’ siomay itu (saya belum pernah menanyakan namanya, nantilah saya tanyakan). Setiap hari sejak puasa saya harus pulang cepat dari kantor. Jadi setiap jam 5 teng, saya udah menunggu siomaynya (bukan mas-nya lho hehehe). Dengan harga cuma Rp 5.000,00 sepiring, saya sudah bisa dapat 5 siomay + 1 telur + 2 kentang + 1 kol rebus + 2 tahu goreng. Banyak
Selama sebulan Ramadhan ini saya telah berjanji akan makan siomay terus setiap malam. Saya anggap dia sebagai makanan selingan, karena toh saya harus tetap makan nasi setelah sholat tarawih. Mudah-mudahan saya bisa makan siomay setiap malam selama puasa ini. Mudah-mudahan mas siomay itu ngga sakit selama bulan Ramadhan ini. Mudah-mudahan mas siomay itu tetap punya modal untuk usaha siomaynya.
Saya tetap tunggu kamu, mas dan siomay. Bagaimanapun, mungkin setelah bulan Ramadhan saya akan selalu pulang menjelang magrib. Mudah-mudahan kita bisa membuat addendum perjanjian untuk bertemu setelah jam 6 malam.
