After 2 posts today. I cannot believe I forgot what date it is.
5 years ago, I just finished my Science PSLE prelim exams.
And 5 years ago, she left.
No wonder these past few days I kept thinking about how the place she used to sit at when she eats in the kitchen is empty. Nobody sits there to eat anymore. It’s like that seat is reserved for her or something. She used to wake up earlier than all of us during sahur. She’ll sit at that spot and close her eyes while reciting prayers, or read the Quran. Five years have passed. FIVE. F-I-V-E. That’s a hell of a long time. Everything’s still the same though. People leave.
But i guess, memories dont.
And never will.
