I suddenly heard a loud 'BOOM' and I woke up.
I was very tired, I could barely open my eyes,
Then I nudge Pao,
"What is happening?"
I held her tight and she just gave me the assurance tap,
I fall back into sleep, still holding her tight,
Then again, 'BOOM!'
I held even tighter.
It continued for quite some time,
waking me up in fear each time,
until I fall back into
Then when morning came,
I wave my hand to my eldest sis who was in our room,
I made the tap-chest action and she asked,
'Why? Thunder ar?'
She smiled, 'I knew it.'
I received a message after that,
'hey michael jackson passed away d. Eh Mei u know
last night i yang u when u were scared? He he. When you asked
me why so loud i wanted to tell you It's war but too sleepy
to talk. Ha ha.'
Sigh, who do I run to when I'm afraid when I'm back in uni?
ps: When we first moved in, I really saw that zig-zag lightning across the sky and was traumatized ever since, thinking that it'll strike me.
pps: I really thought it was war. It sounded like we kena bomb. So terrifying.
