On that Deepavali night, the little guy slept pretty early. But he woke up at midnight due to the pom-pom-pom-pom noises from the fireworks near our place.
Once he was up, he demanded to see the fireworks. Not because he wants to celebrate Deepavali of course, just because he enjoys watching fireworks. Hehehe. So the big guy brought him next door because it could only be seen from that room, the computer room cum study cum guest room.
After a while, because I hate being left alone in a room, I decided to join them. So we watched fireworks together. And then after the fireworks stop, suddenly I noticed the little guy staring intently at something outside the window. After a minute or so, with an undefined expressions on his face, he said to us "Nampak tak tu hantu dok mai? Haaa tuuu, nampak tak dia dok mai?" while pointing outside the window. Ok very straight to the point menusuk ke jiwa penakut mak dia lantas membuatkan lutut mak dia terketaq-ketaq! It really sent shiver down my spine and made the hair around my neck stood up uols!
I immediately look at the big guy with a horror face. He then said to the little guy "Tell the hantu to go away! Shoo shoo!". Ceh! Sempat lagi buat lawak! And I was like panicky already, so I urged him, "Hey, ajaq la dia baca apa2, the hantu won't go away by mere shooing!". But he was still making annoying jokes like that, so I tried to distract the little guy's attention. However, his eyes were still staring at the same spot, and he still had that same undefined expression he had on when he first spotted the supposedly ghost.
After regaining my composure, I quickly recited ayatul kursi in my heart. After like 30 seconds, the little guy then said "Haaa, tu dia tak mai dah, dia pi dah, nampak?"
And immediately I let out a long looooooooooooooooongggg sigh of relieve.
I can't imagine if that happens when I'm all alone with the little guy, confirm haku pengsan kat situ jugak!
