As I'm writing this it's been 2 hours since the break entry. My heart is still beating fast. Goodness. I was staring into spaces for a while just now, not thinking of anything in particular, I just sat there on my bed and kept quiet.
I was so scared. The after effect still hasn't gone.
Mak and abah are not here. Muaz is. Nasib baik bulan puasa, Muaz was up to prepare the sahur. He didn't notice anything when he got out the sayur from the fridge and started to cook. Only when he went out to get the bawang he noticed the washing mashine was slightly moved and the cord had been taken out. Only then he noticed the window was slightly ajar. He came back inside and noticed that some of the white drawers were opened and the middle room has its light on. He quickly came into my room and woke me up, asking me if I moved the washing machine. Well of course I didn't, I think he was in shock he had to clear his mind.
I got up from bed and wanted to walk out but Muaz told me to stay. "Mueh rasa ada orang dalam rumah". Upon hearing that then only I could hear the sound of someone opening and slamming the drawers, in my parents' room. That minute I couldn't think of nothing else but how to get the damn thief out of the house. I didn't plan any suicidal stunts but I immediately think of the car alarms. Think how loud they can be in the wee hours and every muslims awake at that time. Maybe it would've been pointless but at least can startled the thief and get him out.
I was trying to call Muaz to get my keys but was afraid the thief could hear me. The fact that I'm a girl really made me even more nervous. I was a bit concious in my sweat pants and camisole as well. I thought of all the horrible things that could happen and that made me meremang all over.
Muaz, being a lurus bendul that he is, he went and tegur that damn thief from outside of the room, not to attack or anything, but it was loud enough to let him know that there's people in the house but spoken with a tone firm enough to send the message you better get out we mean no harm. I couldn't wait any longer for my car keys so I got out and get it myself. By the time I wanted to set it off the thief was gone.
Looking at the room, I must admit I was dumbstruck looking at the drawers and the cupboards door left opened. I noticed straight away that abah's dvd player was gone. I know mak is not the kind who stash cash inside her cupboard like some people. But having said that, all the jewelry and important documents, she does keep them there. I doubted that the thief got all he wanted looking at the drawers because he was looking at the wrong ones. He got only one right but I think he only managed to go halfway through. The documents are all there but the jewelry is not. I know about a gelang which mak rarely put on - I think it's one of the stuff that got nicked. That gelang is one valuable item.
Muaz didn't want to tell mak initially. He was awake the whole night and he actually heard all those kelentang kelentung from his room but he thought it was me. He locked all the gates and the doors the previous night so naturally he didn't pay any attention. He was worried mak would marah because tak jaga rumah. Alahai adik ku yang sorang ni.... mak kita tak macam tu. Takkan la mak nak marah sebab tu pulak. You took care of the house well, even protected me. It's clearly not your fault, the thief got in through the only window yang takde grill. Benda dah jadi...
I told him to call them anyway. No use of hiding things like this. I know his intention well, he didn't want to upset mak. Whatever he can cover, he'll cover it up - just because of that. His actions right after the thief went out proved it. He quickly put everything back into place, close the drawers etc. Not a good idea messing with evidence (I don't think he realized this at the time) but he did it sebab taknak mak susah hati...
Knowing mak like we adik-beradik do, we know how much this will impact her. She'll either cry (dalam hati) or fuss over lack of security or worry sick for a few days she won't sleep or more likely she'll do all of them. Now she's not as strong as before anymore. Any misfortune would cost alot to her health. So it's understandable how Muaz really is concerned about this. He simply doesn't want mak to get sick.... Betapa mulianya hatimu Muaz, rasa hormat pada mak abah, kaklong rasa antara 4 beradik, Muaz la yang paling tinggi sekali. Tak pernah kata tak to mak. Sentiasa lembut nada berbicara dengan orang tua. Sentiasa hormat kaklong, tak pernah pun melawan. Yang paling penting, rasa tanggungjawab Muaz terhadap rumah dan orang yang ada di dalamnya. Tak perlu dicanang pun, dan kaklong tak perlu dengar daripada orang lain, I can see it all in your actions. I can't imagine betapa besarnya redha mak pada Muaz.
Abah ngan mak on the way balik right now. We found out just now the house keys are missing. Nasib baik car keys semua ada.
Well he only got into 2 rooms, luckily. I think he got in the middle room first where all the computer stuff is but after going through the drawers he couldn't find anything (kertas and pins and besi). He didn't take anything from the pc, router is still there, or maybe he has plans for it later who knows. My room is at the front so I guess dia tak sempat. Nothing valuable in my room - only this company's laptop. Anyway I think the goddamn thief ingat rumah takde orang. Sesuka hati je dia masuk bilik bukak lampu, buat bising.
I'm still scared.
