The Legend of Banyuwangi (Creative Writing Class)

Revised folk-tale, April 20, 2014
 By Rizal Saryadi

A long time ago in 15th century, Java was ruled in democratic system by King Sirupata. He was a wise person, kind, and friendly.  Because of his integrity, everyone respected him though he acted as ordinary people in daily social life.
One day the former Prime Minister of Kingdom died, and the king was forced to make a quick decision for who would succeed that position. Then the king invited all officials of the kingdom and discussed the proper candidate of this position. The discussion was not taking long time because the forums agreed to choose his son, Sirwala, to take the position. As his counselor suggested, “ My King…your son is trusted to be in this position and I think he is qualified to be the Prime Minister of our kingdom based on his love and responsibility towards the kingdom.” The King and all forums agreed with the counselor and the decided Sirwala as the official Prime Minister of Java Kingdom.
After a month Sirwala was being a Prime Minister of Java Kingdom counselor talked to the king that they needed to send a delegation for a piece between their kingdom and Sriwijaya.
“My king…I think that our kingdom doesn’t need to have a war with Sriwijaya. As we know our society would be suffered because of war” said the counselor. At the moment the king replied, “Hmm…youre right my friend. Our kingdom must be peaceful, and our people must not be suffered because of war. I will call Sirwala to finish this matter. What about you my friend? Do you have any idea?” then the counselor said, “I have no idea, sir, your decision is very wise for me”. After that, the counselor asked permission to leave king’s room.
At night, Sirwala went home sadly. He told his wife about the task.
“I cannot leave you alone. Soon you will give birth to our child” Sirwala said.
“Don’t worry about me. I can take care of myself.” His wife answered.
Tomorrow morning Sirwala left his kingdom and beautiful wife to accomplish the task from king. It was a long and hard journey for him to leave his wife. The hardest thing is he left his happy life and sweet memory with his beloved wife in the kingdom.
A few days after Sirwala left, his wife gave birth to a handsome baby boy. She was very proud of the baby. But unfortunately, one day Sirwala's wife went to the spring. The wicked woman, Sirwala’s mother, took the baby away. She threw the baby to a river.
Sirwala's wife was shocked when she could not find her baby. "Where is my baby?" she cried. She looked for for her son, but she could not find him. Finally she fell sick because she did not eat or drink. She grew more thin and weak day after day.
After six months, Sirwala came home. He could not wait to see his wife and child.His mother saw him at the gate. She said to him,"My son, your wife is wicked woman. She killed her own baby. She killed your son. She threw your son into the river."
Sirwala was very shocked to hear it. When he met his wife, he did not believe in anything his wife said. He was very angry that he would kill his wife.Sadly his wife said, "I'm very sad because you dont believe me. You don't have to kill me. Because I will die soon."Then she cut her thumb and ran into a river nearby. Then there was a hidden voice said, " my dear husband, my blood will be the witness of the truth. If the fragrant smell comes out of this river, then I'm innocent."
A miracle happened. From the river, there came out some fragrant smell. At the center of the river came out two beautiful-strange flowers. A big flower and a small one. The small flower said, "Dad, I'm your son. My mother is innocent. It was grandmother who threw me intothe river." After that Sirwala cried loudly. He regreted what he had done to his wife. But it was too late. His wife and child turned into two beautiful-strange flowers.
The smelly and dirty river turned into clear and sweet smelled one. In javanese, the fragrant river is called Banyuwangi. And now the land around the fragrant river is known as Banyuwangi, a town in East Java.

CERPEN; Dongeng Si Kancil (Berbahasa Inggris)

Kancil and Monkey
(Simalungun folklore)
Tugas Mata Kuliah Folklore and Mythology
By Rizal Saryadi

            Kancil is a name which is very popular in many countries in Indonesia. Many people indicate it as a smart, clever, and tricky animal. It is because many authors in some countries take Kancil by those characters in plays. Indeed the readers assume Kancil as so. However the question is why do some authors often take kancil as a bad character in the play? It is probably the question that often appears in the some people’s mind. Therefore, It’s important to know to give us extra knowledge and for the answer of the question.
According to the Simalungun folklore, why does Drs. Henry Guntur Tarigan take Kancil as the main figure in the story? Are there other stories could be raised for different topics? Drs. Henry Guntur Tarigan is a person who collects the stories from Simalungun folklore.
Concerning about the story of Kancil, here I try to raise the topic of Kancil and Monkey. It is because this topic is important for me. It has the lesson which is could inspired us how to think and consider something. In addition, the story is very nice to join. 
In the fact of this story, Kancil is illustrated as the tricky figure which deceives the monkey to fall into the hole for rescuing itself. Furthermore, it also deceives a tiger for surviving from eaten by it. This is the description about the behavior of Kancil in this story which makes us probably think kancil is bad or clever figure. More importantly, we should know which is not all in this topic raises the badness of Kancil. There are some events that Kancil did something tricky just for surviving itself and not involving other animals as the sacrifice.
In general, there is a common mistake from the readers usually happened. It is why don’t many people take a lesson from kancil story after reading it? This is also the question which is probably rarely revealed by many people.  We should know this one as the introspection for our self as the reader. It is in order to make us being meticulous readers, not just being fun readers. In short, when we are reading the story of Kancil, we are necessary to figure out the lesson in the story because it is one of the aims in the reading the story beside for having fun.

        The stories
Once Kancil was fell into the hole had dug by a hunter to catch the tiger. Because the hole was deep enough, it was very confused; because of course it would be difficult to jump. The effect, it couldn’t breathe nature reserve more in. Most, in the hole there were no food or drinking water anymore.
For a few minutes in the hole, suddenly there was a leaf fell down into the hole. The leaf was from a tree surround the hole which was close to. “Great luck! Alright, I will pretend to read this leaf like there is a text on. Then there is one hear my voice, so it will approach here. After that I will invite it to come into this! It is not bad idea!” Kancil said as wiping off its head.
“On the moon two days has been trapped, the trapped day on the moon two; I am free other people are confined, other people are confined I am free” So it was it said repeatedly as if it was reading the letter. For a long time he was reciting it, but no one approached it. Kancil was not hopeless; it read it louder till its voice being hoarse. However more and more no one came.
Not far from the hole, a gang of monkey approached. When the ears of Kancil heard monkey’s voice, it read the writing of leaf louder and louder. So because of that voice, a monkey visited it from the tree. When they looked at each other, the monkey asked, “What are you doing, Kancil? You look like a crazy animal? The other monkeys came approaching the hole. “You don’t know what happened!” Kancil said. “Don’t you look the sky will fall down? Come in……protect yourself soon?!” then, “Look up! As pointing the sky; won’t the sky fall down? Come on, jump into this hole in order to avoid you all from the death!” it lied to the monkeys. Because being afraid of the death, so the monkeys fell down directly to save themselves. After they all came into the hole, then Kancil said; Are there your other friends outside? If so, let me to pick them up! It is pitiful if they died there!” The monkeys said that all of their friends have been here.
“E-eh….the sky has moved down!” Kancil said to make them afraid. Astounding! My grandmother still outside! Is there one of you brave to pick it up?” it tested the monkey. They all were quivering. One was probably their leader said, “Enough kancil, it is better if you pick it up! And please tell to other friends to hide here! It’s pitiful if they are died because the sky!” Hearing their agreement, Kancil felt comfortable. However in order to not being suspicious, Kancil pretended to refuse it. Then the monkeys pressured it, so Kancil even said, “How can I go out? Ah….I fell afraid?! Furthermore, Do I know when I go up, then the sky fall down? So I will be dead, whereas you’re free from the death! it said as if it’s difficult to accept. “Yet…,” it pretended thinking for a moment. “Alright! Anymore, I can’t forget my grandmother’s favor! Please, you all throw me out of this hole in order that I can come back soon! Or like this! You all make stairs by constructing your body like pyramid. So I will be easy go up by your back!” The monkeys didn’t protest more. They did what Kancil suggested. Afterwards kancil walked on their back till reached the top of the hole. Then it jumped up,”hu…up!” Now it was free to breathe the fresh air in. After arriving to the top, it repeated the reading:
“On the moon two days has been trapped, the trapped day on the moon two; I am free other people are confined, other people are confined I am free.” Then it repeated 2-3 times. Afterwards, it left the monkeys which were confined succeeding its self. 
When Kancil was joining its trip, it met the tiger. It felt afraid because it was impossible to avoid. “What is the idea to avoid it?” it thought under heart. “O…here is the feces of buffalo! If so….?” It thought again, “I have an idea!” Then it took a slice of wide leafs and it covered the feces up. Afterwards it kept it away by other leaf. The tiger approached it, “what are you doing, Kancil?!” it asked. “Nothing grandmother (a summons for tiger in that country), I am just given the duty by the king Sulaiman to protect his food. He will come to eat for a while later,” said kancil as keeping the feces away. Hearing that, the tiger felt hungry, “how if you give this food for me? Accidentally I felt so hungry!” it asked to kancil. “I don’t, grandmother! I am afraid if the king Sulaiman being angry with me. If this food is not arrived to him, I would be killed! So I forbid you to eat this!” Kancil pretended. “I am very hungry, Kancil! If you don’t give it, I will eat you soon! Give it or not?!” it threatened by its tusks.
“If so grandmother, please take it, but I should go first in order that I get free of the punishment from the king,” says Kancil deceiving the tiger. The tiger was very happy heard this, “Ok Kancil, please go away from me! I am so hungry, I will eat this soon!”
Kancil then went by whole of its power. Afterwards the tiger began to eat the feces supposed food. “Ngaup..,” it joined the feces. However, then its stomach felt painful, so that it was very angry with Kancil. It knew it was not food but buffalo’s feces. Because of that, it tried to chase after Kancil. It followed the track of Kancil till the track was not clear anymore. “Damn it”, the tiger mocked Kancil roughly. It didn’t found Kancil for a long the day. So, it became more and more angry. However it didn’t know what to do. It just could keep that animosity till the exact time to revenge.

The argumentations
            This story has described us about the ideas of Kancil to survive itself. There are some bad sides and good sides of the way for surviving. It victimizes Monkeys gang as the method for its plan. This is bad behavior and no justice for this event. The monkeys which have no any mistakes to it become the victims of its trickiness. In addition, it takes the advantages for this case without thinking and repaying their service. However, it traps them all instead.
            “Great luck! Alright, I will pretend to read this leaf like there is a text on. Then there is one hear my voice, so it will approach here. After that I will invite it to come into this! It is not bad idea!” Kancil said
            This statement is a description of its behavior which How tricky it is. It plans are very nasty. In what condition, kancil may not do this. It should do a favor after arriving over the land. After using monkey’s service in the hole, it should help them all because there are many ways to do. It could try to seek something like the rope, staircase, wood, and etc. However that is impossible for Kancil itself. It doesn’t think monkey’s sufferings after helping it. It is probably proper if I illustrate it as egoistic animal.
            In the other cases, Kancil may be true in the way surviving itself. As when rescuing itself from the evil tiger, it do same method by deceiving it. However in this one, it doesn’t take a benefit from other animals as the victim. It just uses a property of buffalo’s feces. This is not too bad in my opinion, because it doesn’t make dangerous to other animals. In addition, this trick is natural to do in this situation. The most important is it just tries to deceive the tiger trickily for surviving.

“If a child eats the baby of Kancil which is just born, he/she would be smart person through his/her growth period”
(The myth from some countries in Bangka)
A myth above, which is I heard directly from the native person, indicates Kancil as a sacred smart animal which is very useful for children’s intelligence. It could make a child who eats being clever or smart. I think this myth could be related to the story of Kancil in this folklore as the description the characters.  
Kancil is very famous as bad figure in general. It is because many authors take Kancil as this character in the plays. Furthermore, Kancil is smart and clever like described on the myth above which probably proper to be this figure for being tricky. Also, Kancil is suitable as the main character in this story according to Drs. Henry Guntur Tarigan. It is probably Drs. Henry Guntur Tarigan thinks that Kancil is weak yet smart. So, it could be the chance to reveal how useful is the cleverness of someone or something which is better than the big muscle and strongness. However the problem is many people rarely take the lesson from the story of Kancil. Therefore, they should chance this habit as the introspection for themselves.
Actually there is one other animal which is suitable to chance the characters of Kancil. It is the aunts because they also weak, smart, and clever naturally. If we look at the behavior of these animals, we will see something different. Those are the aunts could work together in every case. They also can obey their leader which always controls them. Furthermore, they can make the line well regulated as one of the symbol of their disciplines.

Banjaran Gathotkaca

By Dhalang Purba Asmara
at General Medical School of Gadjah Mada University

Gathotkaca is prominent figure in the story of Java Pewayangan. He is a son of Bimasena is from Pandawa’sFamillyand Arimbi (Hidimbi) is from Rakshasa. Gathotkaca has great supernatural power as he could fly on the sky without wings and even he is cannot be defeated by any even weapon except by heirloom Kontawijaya. He is also known as “wire muscle iron bone” because his strong body.

Birth of Gathotkaca

A long time ago, Gathotkaca was born by his mother Arimbi. Krisna, Gareng, and the others assembled to watch the birth of Gathotkaca. Unexpectedly, there was a something weird when he was born. As told in pewayangan by Ki Purba Asmara that his cord cannot be cut by any weapon. Bima and Arjuna had tried to cut it but they both failed. So his mother and overall who watched this incident were very sad. Bimasena even attempted to suggest her not to be sad. However, Bima just looked at Arimbi’s sadness.He was not success to suggest her. Consequently, Arjuna as Bima’s brother, attempted to cut it by the cover of arrow Kontawijaya. Also together with all his powerful magic, Arjuna started to cut it. However there was a miracle happened at that event. Gathotkaca’s cord was cut and the cover of Kontawijaya entered into gathotkaca’s body through his navel. But that was not a problem. Gathotkaca’s mother was even very glad. She absolutely could smile again.
In actual fact that was not told by dhalang Purba Asmara about before Arjuna cut Gathotkaca’s cord, he firstly went to somewhere to do meditation for getting the guidance from god. Also at the same time, Karna was doing meditation looking for the heirloom weapon. Because of their faces are resemble, so that Batara Narada as delegate from the heaven, gave heirloom Kontawijaya to wrong person that is Karna. Actually it should be given to Arjuna on command from Bathara Guru. So when Arjuna knew that incident after doing meditation, he attempted to take it back from Karna. Unfortunately, he just could get its cover, whereas Karna escaped and brought the heirloom Kontawijaya..
For a while the misery happened, Bathara Naradha came. He gave Gathotkaca name as Jabang Tetuka. After that he borrowed Gathotkaca to bring over the heaven. However, his mother was curious why did Bathara wanted to bring him over the heaven. So Bathara replied that Gathotkaca would be used for against the sovereign Pracana and governor Sekipu. After talking more, so Arimbi and Bima allowed him to bring Gathotkaca.

Be God’s Knight

Governor Sekipu attacked the heaven. He was refused by Bathara Guru to propose an angle called Dewi Supraba. So Bathara Guru sent Bathara Naradha to borrow Gathotkaca  for fighting Sekipu. When Naradha came with little Gathotkaca, He surrendered Gathotkaca to Sekipu as his enemy. The first, Sekipu underestimated Gathotkaca as little baby fought powerful ogre. However when he tried to eat Gathotkaca, he couldn’t eat him.  He couldn’t hurt Gathotkaca’s skin even a little. Because of his shame, he gave Gathotkaca back. He wanted Gathotkaca grew up immediately. Therefore, Gathotkaca was included into crater Candradimuka. For a while later, he grew up as powerful man that has more great powerful magic then before. It was because Candradimuka influenced his powerful magic more great.
Gathotkaca was ready to battle with Sekipu, so that he met him. However before they went to battle, they talk a little bit. Then Sekipu attacked Gathotkaca suddenly. In luck, Gathotkaca was success to avoid him. After that they duel strongly and powerfully. Sometimes Sekipu felt down and sometimes so did Gathotkaca. In fortune, Gathotkaca defeated him successfully. So Sekipu died and then Pracana appeared with his horrifying face. He wanted to revenge on the die of his governor, Sekipu. After a little talk, He also did something same as Sekipu. He attacked Gathotkaca immediately and touched gathotkaca’s body. Gathotkaca felt down and then he woke up again. After that Gathotkaca revenged it, so they battled as strong knight. The situation was same as while fighting Sekipu. Sometimes Gathotkaca felt down and sometimes so did Pracana. Eventually with his super power, Gathotkaca was success defeated him. Indeed, Pracana felt down and died.

The Marriage of Gathotkaca with Pergiwa

The planning of marriage Gathotkaca and Pergiwa as daughter of Arjuna has spread to anywhere. The preparation at Yodipatias Bimasena’s place was very perfect. At schedule, the celebration would be done at three places such as Madukoro, Yodipati, and Pringgondani. The report has been spread to Hastina, the staying place of Kurawa’s people. There was carried out of noble meeting. There was be present the elders of Kurawa as sovereign Duryodana, governor Sengkuni, and Danyang Drona. They discussed about the way in order to Pandawa could be destroyed. Danyang Drona suggested breaking Pandawa by wedding Lasmana with Pergiwa before Gathotkaca did. Hopefully, Bimasena would be angry and then killed his younger brother, Arjuna. That planning was prepared perfectly.
The applicant group of Hastinapura even set out completely with the troops and every kind of greatness sign and marriage sign. After arrived in Madukoro, Danyang Darona talked and persuaded Arjuna. So by many ways, Arjuna eventually couldn’t refuse. The proposal of Hastinapura was accepted. Then the delegate to Yodipati was sent for giving information that the proposal of Gathotkaca was refused, whereas the group of hastina was allowed to lodge at Madukoro. At Yodipati, Bimasena that before looked fresh, immediately be quiet and slept at the yard of his place. He said; “don’t disturb me”. At the same time, Gathotkaca looked very disappointed. However, he was comforted by the servants and Petruk promised that he would try to relate their love back. So, Gathotkaca went to Madukoro with Petruk. They moved stealthily to get Pargiwa’s place.
Petruk had the duty to keep outside, whereas Gathotkaca got into Pergiwa’s room. Pergiwa welcomed Gathotkaca.
Gathotkaca; “is it right if you accept Lesmana’s proposal?”
Pergiwa; “absolutely Gathotkaca, I was ready to serve Lesmana as my husband.”
Gathotkaca; “okey, if that’s right I would be glad too. As the reward, take my heart”, (Gathotkaca took his weapon).
Then, Gathotkaca was embraced hardly by Pergiwa. She acknowledged that she just examined Gathotkaca’s love and then said that she accepted Lesmana’s proposal because she didn’t want to disappoint his father.
At outside the room, Lesmana came to get Pergiwa. However Petruk blocked him, so the battle was happened. And then Lesmana knew that Gathotkaca was inside, so that he called Kurawa’s people to attack Gathotkaca. However, Gathotkaca defeated them all, including Danyang Drona.
Danyang Drona was very angry so that he reported it to Arjuna. He said that Gathotkaca was doing not proper deed with Pergiwa. Arjuna was so angry herd that, so he faced Gathotkaca soon. He battled Gathotkaca with his great heirloom. Meanwhile, Gathotkaca didn’t fight him back anymore. Arjuna became more vicious than before, he thought that Gathotkaca underestimated him. Petruk was very afraid looked at situation. Moreover Arjuna pulled out his whip Kyai Pamuk that was striked hard on Gathotkaca’s body repeatedly.
Petruk run to Yodipati for waking Bimasena up. However, Bimasena couldn’t wake up though he called it repeatedly. Then Petruk remembered the story about Kumbokarno that could be woken by pulling his foot hair out. So he did it to Bima and he woke up. Immediately, Petruk told about his son that was stroke by Arjuna hardly. However Bima was just relaxed, he didn’t care about that. He said that Arjuna was right as his uncle to teach about the truth for Gathotkaca. Petruk was very confused and said that Gathotkaca would die. However, Bima didn’t care about that and just said that it was no problem. Petruk tried to find another way. He said that Arjuna disfigured his name when he was torturing Gathotkaca. Suddenly, Bimasena run very fast. He was very angry with Arjuna. After he came to Werkudoro, he hit Arjuna hardly repeatedly. So Arjuna ran to the group Ngamarta that just came.
Kresna and Puntadewa came and fortuanately he was success to separate between Bima and Arjuna. Then, Petruk told Bima about why he lied to him. Eventually, Arjuna and Bima made piece. Arjuna realized about his fault. Indeed, Pergiwa accepted Gathotkaca to marry her after that. Meanwhile, the group of Hastina was attacked by Bima and then went home without good outcome.

The Death of Gathotkaca

In pewayangan version wich has been told that Gathotkaca was very close with Arjuna’s son, Abimanyu. Once day, Abimanyu married with Utari as princess from Wirata Kingdom where he acknowledged that he still be unmarried man. But actually the case that he was married with Sitisundari, Kresna’s daughter.
Sitisundari that was entrusted at Gathotkaca’s castle heard that his husband was married again. So, Gathotkaca’s uncle called Kalabendana came to meet Abimanyu for asking him went home. Kalabendana was the youngest brother of Arimbi that had the smooth heart and noble. The case of Abimanyu was made utari jealous. Abimanyu perforce lie with Utari. He swore if he had more wife than Utari, so the enemy would gang up on him.
Then Kalabendana met Gathotkaca and reported the attitude of Ambimanyu. However Gathotkaca reprimanded him instead. Gathotkaca considered him was daring to meddle in his cousin’s family business. Because of his emotion, He stroke Kalabendana’s head. So that Kalabendana died immediately even though Gathotkaca did it unconsciously. When the war of Baratayuda was happened, Ambimanyu was truly died beacause he was ganged up on by the enemy from Korawa. Tomorrow, Arjuna was sauccess to revenge on the die of his son by cutting Jayadrata’s head off. 
Duyudana was very sad on the die of his cousin in law, Jayadrata. He forced Karna to attack for Pandawa’s camping that night. So karna even perforce did it although that broke the war role.
Hearing Korawa wanted to attack at night, so Pandawa even sent Gathotkaca to block them. Gathotkaca was chosen consciously because Kotang Antrakusuma that he had could spray the light brightly.
The battle at that night was very horrifying. Gathotkaca was success killed Korawa’s person called Lembusa. However, he lost his both uncles Brajalamadan and Brajawikalpa that was killed together with their enemies called Lembusura and Lembusana. Gathotkaca finally faced with Karna that had Kontawijaya heirloom. Karna threw Kontawijaya toward Gathotkaca and suddenly Gathotkaca tried to avoid it. However unexpectedly, Kotawijaya touched his navel. So that Kontawijaya united again with its cover and Gathotkaca died.

After zuhur prayer, I arrived into the house and put my school equipment down. Then, I aimed to the kitchen taking the rice, a glass of water, and side dish for my having lunch. After all of my eating activities, I had a plan to go to Play Station place. But the first, I had to observe my father because he was so angry if I go over there. He didn’t allow me to watch game playing especially going for playing. But, it wasn’t a problem for me though he would be angry. I would constantly go because I couldn’t keep my desire back. Watching and playing the game is naturalism for children. So, I wouldn’t leave it. Then the second, if my father was nothing at home, I would escape home quickly till I arrived to the destination.
I was so glad having fun there because I could look the game playing satisfyingly. Even, if I have some money, I would like to play like my friends. It was great and wonderful. I hoped it very much. But, my parent rarely gave me more than two thousand per day and even that is just for buying snack at school. So, I couldn’t play the game. In addition, I was so jealous of my friends. I looked some of them played GTA Sand Andreas, also there are most of them played football soccer, playing TAKEN, and soon. When I looked at one by one of their playing, I tried to leave my jealousy out and then felt so happy like nothing any problem inside, though actually I felt so attracted and I need to play. But, I had to be constantly patient because I had no any money for payment. Fortunately, there was my friend that gave me a favor. He invited me to play with him together and he would pay me. It was like a very nice season in my game life. I felt more and more happily like getting new wonderful life.
For a while at home, my father was waiting for me. He had already prepared his tool for hitting me. But, I didn’t know that case because I forgot my home and just remembered the game anyway. But suddenly my friend came to me from outside and then said;” Zal, you must go home right now because your father has been waiting from you”. My body looked nervous immediately and my mouth kept silent for a moment. I was thinking about the way out from this problem. “How”, says my heart. But, I tried to feel better constantly so that I got a braveness to go home. About ten minutes later, I arrived in front of my home. Apparently, my father was waiting for me there. He leaned his body on the indoor with a small straight rattan on his hand. I looked him by acute eyes and gave a little nervous. I was thinking at that time “will I enter my home or should I run away from home?” I was so confused to choose either enter or run away. Immediately, I didn’t much think about anything, I attempted to approach him bravely.
When I passed him a little, I didn’t look at him. I turn my head down and just through him. Unfortunately, he held my T-shirt and pushed me by great power till my body fell down.  He said “where were you?” my heart beat quickly and my breath as a tired people. I didn’t know how to solve this problem. I was so confused how to answer the question. So, I perforce answered it honestly that I had played the game at Game Station. Suddenly, His eyes to be so bigger than before so that I more and more afraid. My body got great vibration and very quick. At the moment, he put the straight rattan on my foot hardly so that I screamed loudly till my neighbor heard my voice. He hit me continually until my body looked black and blue and even till he felt satisfied.
He hurt my heart and made me like had no justice in my family. I was so jealous with my friends because they get free to play the game at GS. I’d like to be like them and had kind parent as same as they had. I couldn’t be better if my life just got a lot of advice from my parent. I needed freedom from father and mother. I wanted to play the game satisfyingly.
Many times and many ways to find the freedom in family, because I didn’t know what did my parent intend that they forbade for several games. I was just a little boy that knew about playing only and didn’t recognize about prohibition. Moreover, I often broke their advice by doing anything could hurt someone heart because I got depression of their rules.

CERPEN; Looking For Way Out

My eyes stared at the unclear shadow above me. She sat on the buffer wood of the roof. She wore like a white robe and probably she was “Kuntil Anak”, called in Indonesian language for most of women ghost. I got a frightening sense on my deep heart. I didn’t know what to do at that night. I was so scared with a ghost that frightened me in my short dream. I felt like in the real condition and the place was same as a place I slept. Moreover, it was very exactly as the real location I lied my body down. “Asstaghfirullah, what is going on?” my heart said something confusing. It was very curious about what is actually happened. But, none of people answer in my dream. The ghost didn’t go away from so I thought would do anything bad for me. I tried to find the way out, but no way approached me. I was more and more confused.
I looked my body and my eyes were closed as fell asleep. Then, the ghost that was very horrifying stared at me with her big eyes. Suddenly, she jump on me that my body felt very hard and got ill. I tried to fight her until my power got lower and weak. In addition, my body couldn’t do everything. I was very confused how to fight her. Finally, I tried to read Al-Fatihah, Al-Ikhlas, Al-Falaq, An-Nas, and Ayat Kursi till she got hot feeling and then released me. When she released me, my body got up immediately and it made me plunged in thought. This dream is so horrifying and made me tired. I don’t want any more if this dream comes again for me.
