HIRA (Karmic)

SPLASH OF LOVE

The hardest thing for Working moms is when they get an assignment out of town, leaving their baby home. And that burden will multiply when she has to deal with a man named Bintang who has been Lunas life partner for three years.

”Mas, I will have a meeting, at Puncak. The day after tomorrow. May I? ” Luna asked permission to attend the Sales & Service Department Brainstorming event.

”Okay ” Bintang replied briefly.

She gasped. How fast answer.

Why doesn he ask about the meeting, how long, and with whom? Is this a husband or a neighbor, she thought. Or maybe this is the moment hes been waiting for. A time where he can be free to do as he pleases, date someone out there, and come home late.

Hush.

She tried to get rid of the negative thoughts that suddenly overtook her mind.

She was busy preparing all the equipment, but she heartfelt lonely and alone. Feeling down a little. Bintangs attitude undermined her confidence; meanwhile, everyone wanted to be close to her and support her in the office.

Please Luna. Don be so whiny. Enjoy yourself! If you want to be free, this is the time. Your husband give a permission. Was that good? Why are you making it so heavy? You
e stupid, you know that? While many wives want to get away from family routines once in a while, you have been voluntarily released and you are mushy, like boiled carrots.

Lets be fit and strong

Work as well as play

Don be lazy dear

Wasting the time…

The childrens songs from CD Bright suddenly entered her heart and strengthened her feelings.

***

All day and night Luna spent time at Puncak. However, she couldn act free as she wished. Sometimes she wants to be able to laugh out loud like Noni, can smoke cigarettes and drink wine Nancy, dress in sensual and coquettish fashion, dabbing here and there like January. They make her jealous, she wants to be expressive like them, but she can . Indeed the situation she didn like.

For a moment, Brights image flashed in her head.

Ah, that kid must have missed me. She thought. Usually, Bright will scream with joy when she hears the sound of a car stopping in the yard when she comes home. Now, the child must be disappointed because the long-awaited mother is not there. Ah, I misses that child so much.

”So that nothing is stupid! There is no Stupid thing in Brainstorming ”

”Do you understand, Luna? ”

”Mm… Yes….. ” Luna was a little confused by Marcs sudden question. It seems that Marc knows that she is no longer concerned.

”So what do you understand about? ”

”Brainstorm. ”

”Okay, what is that?

”Brainstorming is saying what you think and responding to others saying. ”

”Good. So what do you think? ”

”I think about my daughter, Bright….. ”

Instantly the room rumbled at Lunas innocent answer. The shame is beyond measure. Her longing for the baby broke her concentration.

PLEASE Luna, thinks. Be smarter. Don be stupid like that. You embarrassing. Change! Be Confident. Be yourself. Don make the same mistakes over and over again. Starting today, you have to be calm and relaxed, and don be easy to nervous, whats wrong? You
e not bad, you
e smart, so, please… If you want to stand out, be brave. Luna cursed to herself.

I don know, maybe I need a lot of brainstorming. Perhaps become of hard pressure in life.

She wanted to speak again, but the words didn come out of her mouth, stay in her mind. Luna is afraid of being wronged and laughed at again.

Luna began to vacillate between what she wanted and reality. Amid her confusion, she suddenly caught a pair of shady eyes, a couple of smiling eyes, eyes that she did not blame. Luna tried to turn away, but as if there was a magnet, she returned to the shady lake again. She found peace there. Ah, why only now realized. Only now did she feel it. Buddy.

Now it was the mans turn to give a presentation.

This is the first time Luna has seen his performance in front of the grand meeting. Perfect. There was no nervousness, her admiration for the boy grew. The guy shed known for a long time—the guy who often drove her home more often than her husband. The guy who had been paying attention to her but she was blinded. Luna pretended not to know there was such a feeling. And now once again Buddy woke her up.

Seeing Buddy standing in front with a white shirt and tie that matched his trouser suddenly made Lunas mind fantasize naughtily. The woman imagined the man in front of him plain without a single cloth covering his body. She craves to make love to that man. Various styles of play we
e playing and dancing in her mind, but… Hushhhhhh She hastily chased away her wild fantasies, it can be dangerous to play with dirty thoughts in a serious situation like this.

Luna was caught red-handed again smiling to himself.

As if Buddy knew what she was thinking.

Luna went upstairs at Break and don know how it is going when suddenly Buddy was already in front of her room.

Her chest immediately beat faster than usual.

With a calm embrace, Buddy entered that girls room. The two of them stood, facing each other, holding hands, and staring very closely behind the door. The sighs got louder and louder. Lunas lips were wet, Buddys gaze glared, and his adrenaline rose.

Suddenly Buddys hand grabbed Lunas face and brought her lips to him. For a moment she was carried away by the atmosphere. But she quickly tried to control herself.

With the remaining strength, she pushed the man back. ”Please… Don … ” She hissed. Again and again, slowly but surely, Buddy tried to hug her.

”Please don … ” She pushed the man out, with all her might, she pushed Buddy out of the room.

And locked the room from the inside.

She stood up, her knees felt weakly unable to support her body, and eventually, she sat behind the door. Her hands were shaking. She tried to calm her heart, calming her ragged breath. It took time to recover all the joints that felt like they were about to fall off. It takes extra energy to fight the force of the same two desires.

She passed the test.

***

Soon they were sitting together at the dining table.

Luna looked at Buddys eyes to examine whether he was irritated with what had happened. Afraid of being said to be pretentious, holy shit. Again.

But not the slightest hint of regret or disappointment was seen on Buddys face. He was sitting in front of her. Just relax.

Nothing to lose.

”Why? ” whispered Buddy after a moment of silence.

”I can ” answered Luna quietly.

”Why? ” Chase Buddy, still in a relaxed tone.

”His face is like before my eyes. Don have the heart. I feel sorry for him ”

”Even though he always let you down? ”

”Id be more disappointed if I let him down. ”

”Even if it has to hurt yourself? ”

Luna was silent.

”Hey, I don see any signs that you remember the one at home? ” Luna judges quietly while sipping her blue mountain.

”Remember. In this world, there is only one God. The others can be two or more, girlfriends… wives… ” Buddy replied calmly.

Luna smiled. ”After all, you can still be funny too, huh? ”

”Everything that happens in this world is the result of fabrications of the human mind. There are only two certain things in this world, namely Death and… ” Then Buddy raised his hand and dropped the pen on their table, ”Gravity. ”

Luna sneered without commenting.

That night she was working alone in front of her laptop when a text message bothered her again.

”The greatest regrets are the risk we didn take. If you think something will make you happy, go for it. Remember that you only live once ”

Her slender fingers pressed the cellphone keypad, writing while smiling and copying a quote.

”In matters of style, swim with the current; stand like a rock in matters of principle. ”

Delivered.

Buddy
