Hardly lifted my thousand-tonnes-weighted eyelids, I searched quickly for the source of the voice. Was someone calling for my roommate? The voice softened and eventually disappeared in the dense and warm air. My body was so heavy as like it was forcing me to lie back. Okay, I thought it would be better to follow my body since it was Saturday. Who on Earth want to wake up so early on Saturday morning? By the way, there were a lot of students like to enhance their high-pitched voice early in the morning. I guessed the air was better early in the morning.Gracefully, I went back to sleep.
Suddenly, somebody was banging at my door. Dragging my sleepy body, I opened the door. At this moment, all my cells woke up and became extremely alert.
"Good morning, uncle."
Oh my! Woei Song's dad was just outside the door and his son was not here. He didn't come back last night.
"Do know where is he because he didn't even pick up the phone? I told him last night that i would be here this morning." his father told me.
"I guess he stayed overnight at student house." This was what my roommate always did during Friday's night. Perhaps watching movie together. But no picking up the phone? He always woke up quite early even on Saturday and Sunday. Had anything happened to him? What if he crashed into something bad while walking back to hostel.
Maybe somebody robbed him and killed him to cover out. Or he crashed with a serial sodomizer who was too obsessed with muscular boy and Woei Song just the one he was looking for. What a lousy roommate I am not to care for the safety of my roommate!
"Daniel, do you know where Woei Song is?"
"He is in my room now."
Thanks God that he is safe and just a short distance from my room. What a frightening but harmless morning. Then, he went out for breakfast with his dad which meant I could go back to sleep. Night everybody.
