Hey, Do you know the story of Twilight Saga about the werewolves? They’re actually exist because naturally it just happens in their blood line if their nemesis became a great deal, I mean they’re getting a lot to handle, so automatically, someone will snap turning into a big hairy dog to protect their territory. In the pack, the werewolves can actually doing telepathy like all the time, they can even read each others mind which it makes no privacy between them.
The reason I wrote about the ware wolves is because… I want to tell y’all that I myself is becoming one and it’s not just happening to me, my other friends are changing too (scream dramatically). This transformation has been hard for us, but now we’re getting used to it and we starting to enjoy it…
I’m imagining stuff again, bad me. There’s something to clear out though, not all of that story I wrote above were piece of crap, there’s something about it that actually happen to us. Us? who’s us? Ok, here’s the real story, about months ago I was entering the whole new world, rugby world. Actually I have played rugby for over a year, but the big effect just touched my soul a couple of months ago. I have joined Jakarta Banteng Rugby Club. At first my two friends (Ditya and Ima) and I were the only and first women who train in that club, but the next time I went to practice, there were another more, swarming up in Simprug. After a while we’ve been trained together, there’s an invisible bond between us, the senior said it was brotherhood or in my case its called sisterhood.
Last sunday on 5th of August the Banteng juniors held a breakfasting event in Izzi Pizza Kemang. I came at 5 p.m, dropped off in front of Izzi by my brother and his friend. I went too early, cause my brother didn’t want to get trap in traffic jam. For a couple of minutes I was alone, sitting on the long table for 15. Great huh? Then Ditya came in, yeeeiiiii I was so glad, finally I didn’t have to be a pathetic lost girl with a pair of red clown shoes which I really like by the way. We choose Izzi Pizza because we got 75% discount, if there were 10 person that buy minimal 1 main course each, and because we’re some amateur high school kids who don’t have enough money in our pockets, so why not, we could eat like monsters without being washed out. After Ditya, Ima came, dropped off by her little brother, then the rest came too and join the starving pack. When the adzan reverberated, there were only 7 of us (Me, Ima, Ditya, Kucluk, Mayaa, Ari Yudha, Dita) plus Ditya’s mom and brother, the other just couldn’t make it, they have their own things. It was fun, we have different interests, but from all of our differences, rugby brings us together, so over all we enjoyed the gathering. There’s something going on around us, I don’t know what, but it was nice, I think the bond was tightened between us, the new ones.
In the middle of what’s going on, we still needed one more person, so we could get our 75% discount, we called some people in our contacts to come, just to eat one main course, yeah we really in the desperate needed of one human being. Some of the junior just couldn’t come, because there were traffic everywhere in that time of day. Then we also called some of the other senior bantengs, but it was useless too, they’re have their own concerns. It was funny though, we were busy calling everybody and laughing at the same time, so it was exhausting. We asked Gori to come, but he didn’t know the way to Kemang, we asked Tio too, but he just caught himself stucked in Radio Dalam and decided to turn back. Boy, I am so hungry I couldn’t stop eating, I knew I needed a lot of water, so Ima and I went to the nearest Circle K to buy drinks, well I was normal to buy a water bottle, but Ima? I have no idea why she bought another coke, even though she already drink it in Izzi Pizza. After that we got back to our pack. Suddenly I really really needed to go to the bathroom, so I rushed my way to it with my friend, but when I got there, I saw a mom with her son standing fully naked on top of the sink, I was too busy with my own bladder, so I ignore them, even though his mom was giving me her weird awkward smile. I opened the first stall and when I opened the closing of the water closet, I screamed and ran out. my friend was coming out too from the other stall, then I said to her that there was puke in the water closet, a very abstract looking puke, eeewww. She told me there was poop in the other stall, more eeewwww. I was so desperate to pee or something horrible might happened in that very second. My friend snap with a very well great idea, she gave an idea for us to go across the ladies bathroom, it was the gents bathroom. Hmm… yeah… wow… weird. Thank goodness we were alone, nobody was there, so we took a turn, I went first, while Ditya was guarding the door for me, then we switched turn, luckily there was no one came, so Ditya and I didn’t have to feel ashamed.
We backed on our seat laughing. As soon as we settled on our chairs we told the others what just happened to us, but of course we still have bigger problem: the 10th person. Because we were hopeless, I called my brother and offered him to eat some more, and I would pay for him and his friend too. He accept my offering, daa off course, I was the one who paid it. Ok problem solve, so I ordered him and his friend a regular sized pizza. Then we found out that we didn’t actually needed the 10th person, we only needed to order 10 main courses, oops our bad. In that small time of waiting we all just chatting and laughing again, then the waitress came and said we still needed to order one more, then I just said that we already had 10 main courses, then she gave us the list. That time was Kucluk fault, he didn’t actually ordered a main course, he actually ordered an appetizer, which forced us to ordered some more, ugh no more for me though. Not long, my brother and his friend came and eat their pizza, until there were no more left, it was weird, I thought they were just eat in another place before they went to pick me up. When I asked later, they said, they didn’t get enough food, so I was giving them a big favor then. I was doing another good deed, even though I forgot to bring money, so I borrowed my brother’s first, embarrassing, I know. Anyway, we had done it for a day, so we took one last picture of us and went home.
That night was something, I know it, we weren’t come as a full pack, but half pack could have done it too, it was the beginning of something special between us people with one purpose, to develop Indonesian rugby, and we love to do it. We know our opponent are getting better and better so, we’ve been called by destiny (I think) to be a pack who shared one hell of a mind…
