Yasmin

"Yasmin, kenalkan ini Bintang. If you want to translate your crazy ideas into codes, he is the one you are looking for. Bintang, Yasmin is a maverick. She studies many things, too many things for my liking. But I guess that is where her great unconventional ideas are coming from. I hope both of you can meet in the middle to make the projects work," ujar Dimas.
"Yasmin," ujarnya sambil mengulurkan tangan.
"Bintang," balas Bintang sambil menjabat tangan Yasmin.
"Mohon kerjasamanya."
"Likewise."

Perkenalan itu terjadi satu dekade silam dan sejak itu banyak hal terjadi di antara mereka. Their one word conversation to hours talking after office hours. Pekerjaan mereka menuntut keduanya untuk sering bersama dan seiring dengan berjalannya waktu, bersama menjadi sewajar bernapas. Bintang selalu ada Yasmin, dan sebaliknya, Yasmin untuk Bintang. Hingga suatu saat, ketika Bintang pergi tanpa kabar. Dan Yasmin memutuskan untuk mengganti suasana da…

Hujan

"Aku suka bau hujan."
"Kamu bisa menciumnya dari tempat beratap?"
"Ah, kamu terlalu serius," ujarnya sambil cemberut meski turut melangkah.
"Nanti kalau kamu pilek, aku juga yang salah."
"Kok bisa?"
"Iya, nanti kamu bilang, 'bukannya mengingatkan, malah ikutan main di bawah hujan'."
"Ahaha, kata-kata yang terdengar seperti aku."
"Ya kan? Makanya ayo berteduh."

Ketika Jek berhenti berjalan, tak sengaja jemarinya menyentuh jemari Sar. Sar menarik jemarinya menjauh tapi ia membiarkan lengannya tetap di sana, merasakan hangat ditengah hujan yang menderas.

Past & Future

Rather than erasing the past, it is better to not creating the future, right?

End

Life has a strange sense of humor. When she thought everything finally fell on the right track, he decided to end their relationship. She expected to feel empty or even betrayed, but strangely, she felt right. She tried to remember good memories but all she managed to think was arguments. Their latest routines together felt more mechanic than natural. They tried to hold on to something that no longer exist. She wandered when the feeling started to turn cold but she found it difficult to grasp the last time she missed him only for the sake of looking at him and not for asking him to move dirty plates or to turn the volume down.

She lost her balance. But probably for all the wrong reasons.

Alice

Alice: Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?
The Cheshire Cat: That depends a good deal on where you want to get to.
Alice: I don't much care where.
The Cheshire Cat: Then it doesn't much matter which way you go.
Alice: ...So long as I get somewhere.

Rasa

Andai rasa sejalan dengan logika, mungkin hidupnya takkan serumit ini. Jatuh cinta pada orang yang memiliki keinginan serupa. Menjadikan beda sebagai warna dan bukan dalih untuk tidak bersama. Hal yang paling ia rindukan dari sendiri mungkin tiadanya ruang untuk mengungkapkan rasa. Karena meski semesta tahu melalui pinta yang ia bisikan pada udara, ia senang melihat perubahan raut wajah dia ketika mendengar kata sayang terucap dari bibirnya.
