Umbrella

after having bonding sessions with my friends in starbucks, i decided to go home, despite invites from them to go drink til the morning. i strongly said that i would be coming the next time they'd be going out again. i was just tired. it was 2 in the morning.

as i reached home, as i would expect, the door is locked. i didn't bring any key with me. and even if i had it, it will still be useless. see the door is locked in three ways... (a door chain, the regular door knob and a deadbolt). so even if you open the door knob, using a key, or perhaps an MRT/LRT card, which i can always do, opening the door completely would still be unsuccessful...

and just when i had thought that i was unlucky - i realized i was more unluckier. my cellphone went empty batt! normally, before knocking the door, i would either send my mom a message, or perhaps call the phone, just to wake her up. it appears that i'll be doing more than what knocking sounds...

at first i was calm. knocking gently. hoping that they'd hear it. knocked. knocked again. then i shouted through the windows. still no go.

minutes passed. my knocking went a little louder and stronger. then there's the occassional name calling. i brought out my wallet, got an expired MRT ticket and tried opening the door knob even though i knew that it's still not enough to get me in.

more minutes passed. louder knocks. stronger shouts. 30 minutes. still no answer. what made it hard is that their room is closed. aircon was on which overpowers my voice. so i decided to do my next move. rock throwing. i picked up little rocks. and threw them to their room. one. two. three. trying to make stones pass through the porch and luckily hit either the door or window or basically anything that would make noise.

argh. the sounds it make are so faint it can't be heard either. nah. back to knocking. and shouting. then i found a cane umbrella on one side. i used it to knock - to make the sounds louder and eventually wake my mom up. still no avail.

shit. 45 minutes. im sweating. my shirts wet. my hanky's wet as well. i took a break. sat down. listened to my ipod. and did the occassional knocking or should i say banging, shouting and stone throwing.

an hour has passed. feels like i've been thrown out of the house. feels like forever out here. with sweat still dripping from my head to my body, i kinda thought of something. the window screen. i have the umbrella, i can definitely use this.

so irregardless of the idea that i'll be leaving a big hole on the screen covered window, i had no hesitations and started doing it. time to get down and dirty. with my bare hands i started pulling the screen on one corner of the window. slowly the big meshed screen started popping out of the edges. one down. one more. the i started pulling out the other, the one with smaller meshes.

....to be continued...
