Hit and Run
Yesterday evening we went to fetch Ethan from school. Darling parked his car by the roadside and walked to the school while Ayden and I waited in the car. I was singing to Ayden when I heard a loud bang and a sudden jolt. I looked up to see a car sped off. I quickly took down the registration number. My heart was pumping so hard it felt like it was going to explode.
With shivering fingers I messaged Darling. Why sms instead of call? Coz I wanted to type out the registration number of that blardy stupid car before I forget! I saw the car drove into a nearby apartment so I thought if anything, we can still hunt him down! But Darling did not reply me so I called him but no answer. Pik pak pik pak heart beats even faster. I dared not get out of the car to check the extent of the damage so every single second waiting in the car is driving me nuts!
After what seems like an eternity (which actually was just a minute) I saw Darling and Ethan walking, very slowly towards our car. I was like a mad lady there banging on the window trying to tell Darling that our car has been hit. No, it did not occur to me then that there is this button I can actually use to wind down that stupid window >_<
Darling, upon seeing this mad lady with hands flying all over dunno what she’s trying to say, walked hurriedly towards us. The moment he opened the left front passenger door to let Ethan in, I started shouting like an insane woman, “Our car has been hit! We kena BANG-ED dy ah! Why u never reply my sms? Why never answer my calls? Go check if the car penyet dy or not! Omg we have been hit!!!!”
Darling ran towards the right side of the car to check the damage. I saw him looking from front to the back, up to down. I was trying hard to read his expression but he looked so calm. And in slow motion I saw him adjusting the side mirror. Apparently, that car hit our side mirror. That’s it. The side mirror. Nothing more than that but I swear I thought I felt the Earth move when we got hit ok?
Darling asked me what car hit us. I answered, “I dunno”. He asked what color? I said, “I dunno”. He asked, “What you know?” I angry lah! I say la, “Oi! I took down the registration number dy good enuf u know?!” He said, “How u going to drive like that? You dont even know what car banged you. How to do a police report?” Sigh… And I was just talking about this issue (of me not able to recognise cars) with my cousin the other day…
