24 hours in 3 hours

Yesterday, I did an English Test Simulation with someone, just called it he. Apparently, we had the test at Semarang and we rode all the way from Jogja to Semarang by motorcycle. And only in one half day we did that journey! Crazy, isn't it? 

We started that journey from 8 am, without having a breakfast and we rode faster enough to passed Magelang and Temanggung only in 1,5 hours. Because his growling stomach, we decided to rest for a bit. We had a little snack to fill up our empty gastric, hahahahaha. And I decided not to take any coffee beverage, imagine that maybe I'll get exhausted from the journey later and taking a coffee will make my health even worse. So, said it only 15 minutes we spent at the rest area, having a little chit-chat, we kicked the road again to go to Semarang. 

Yups, at Ambarawa, he teased me to go back to my hometown, Salatiga. How about that? How about we took some times at your home and let you drive your car? In my mind told me, "How am I supposed to do that? How can I have a courage to drive, at least again??" We closed that argument, and passed all the Ungaran's road and finally SEMARANG!! I'm not good at remembering the road's name, the way to go to some place, but Thank God, we arrived safe and sound at Crown Plaza Hotel where the simulation test was being held. 

Because we only had our simple outfits, we changed our clothes first at the toilet. Hahaha, and for me I took some times because I had this "girly's month" and I had to put back my make up. Hahahaha. While I was doing that, he'd already signed in his name and got the time lists. And whaddup! We had to do the test from 12.00 to 18.00. I was wondering, how we would go back to Jogja at that time. But time is time, and we like we've been vowed to do the test. At least, that's my only way to help him understand "that test gonna be". I couldn't afford to help him get the test if it didn't free like yesterday. And at very least, we want to get away from this country soon. At least, for now. 

In the first section, we had listening test. And surprisingly, it's a little bit more difficult than my test back one year ago. And my empty stomach really disturbed my concentration. I only assured of my answer 75% from that section. But once again, because it might be his first time having a test like that, he almost messed up his answer. Supposed he wanted to write the 25's answer, instead he wrote it on the number 24's line. I found it funny actually, but we had to being serious when we get that kind of test, so I made him take a note, so that he wouldn't get that same mistakes again.

After that, finally, we had our brunch!! Ah, our long awaited meal! Finallyyeeeeehhh!!! We discussed it with a bunch of chit-chat about the past. How I didn't want to get into "Pesantren" and how he lived that kind of life before, with a full lists of regulations. Haha, while he was telling me that, I spoke to myself that I wanted that kind of life, but only for some moments. I think that I had that kind of life, maybe I'd get another experiences. Ha!

We finished our meal, and back to the test scene. Yeah, we had our reading test and writing test. Hahahahahaha. The whole reading test was much more easier than my real test back then. But the writing test, emm should I say, that It's not hard but trying to get therasaurus words at those sentences were rather hard. Hahahaa. 

After all, the clock had been set up at 6 pm. After we finished praying, definitely we went outside from that hotel and went to the parking lot. We were so surprised that it's raining, wondering how our helmets would be. And tadaaaaa. It's sucked up the water and fully wet. Huhuhu. But we didn't have another choice and wore our raincoat, so that we kicked that long road again.

Because I'm so bad at memorising our way back home, we almost got lost, but fortunately it didn't happen. Hehehe. Yeah, it's raining so hard at Semarang to Ungaran. Both of us were freezing because  of the cold, but we had to passed all of those circumstances so that we arrive at Jogja. The time was tickling so slow, that I wondered how about staying up at my house first then we go to Jogja again the day after. But, that's just in my mind, we kept on hitting the road to go back to that city, Jogja. 

Yups. Around the road Ambarawa-Magelang, there were a lot of trucks and bus that brought us an 'aarrrghh'. Huft. And what made it worse was the rain. It hit our body and mind harshly. Huhuhuhu. But around Secang when the chill was hitting my climax point, it gave me pain in my chest. But I couldn't tell him, afraid that he would be worried. 

Aroun Secang-Magelang, the rain almost stopped, but it rained even harder at Artoz area, which made us to rest for a while at the convenience store. I bought sandwich, mineral water and pain relief 'Salonpas'. I sat at the chair, ate my sandwich and my meds. So long after that I put 4 patch of Salonpas and put it on my body. Ouugh the hot feeling couldn't win the chill of cold. Breeze. Huhuhu. But after a while, fortunately, i felt that hot and warm feeling, like being hold and calm down. Huuuff.

But, took that rest make us feel colder than before. Huhuhuhu. I was in silence because it's like killing me softly and slowly. Uughh. But Thank God, that Salonpas gave me strength to conquer the chills, though a little, but it helped, a lot.

Magelang-Muntilan and finalyeeeehhh JOGJAH!!!! After that long awaited moment, touched down Jogja. Though it's still cold, but at least it would only take a little time to go to my own bed. Huft. We decided to eat a very hot dinner 'Bakmi Rebus' hahahaha. Yeah, actually it passed our meal's time but we need that hot feeling, hoping it would make us warmer. 

And at that time, that night, we, I mean, I decided to make a conclusion which I have to drive a car, again. Be brave, challenge that bumpy road, so that we would go anywhere with a safe feeling.

But at the end of that day, I smile at myself, looking at my phone's chat and tell him unspokenly.

"I want to help you, I want to take out my hands and grab yours, make our wishes come true. You don't have to face it alone. And.. my wishes, my worries, or my prays for you let me keep it till you rise up once again. I'll wait you. Catch me up soon"
