"Mama! Mama!! Oh look what I found". "What is it? Honey?" Said Fausha. "I dont know mama, but its kind of weird". Said the boy curiously. "It has a red color on it" he continued. Fausha looked into that insect, it was covered with fresh red in color. "Well, honey maybe its a new breed insect" she said with assurance. "Ok , then Mama I'll find some more". The boy chuckled and run onto the forest. "Dont get too far dear!!!" she shouted.
Deep onto the forest the boy wander around, he find himself enjoying the views of the refreshing trees, the noise of the insects and sweet fragrance of the flowers. The light of the sun flows to the leaves of the trees where it looks like a spot lights of a theatre, he was then so happy of what he discovered. Not so far from where he stands, he saw an insects that resides in one corner, "oh!! Lucky!" He chuckled with excitement and run towards it. The more he comes near to that thing, it's foul smell became more and more strong, however he ignored all of it for he was preocuppied of his childish thought. At last, he was in front of it, he reach out his tiny hand with a smile on his face and then grab them. The impact of his hands makes the insects flew away and then, unexpected thing befall on him. His tiny eyes grew big, his little mouth is wide open and without any sound even if he wanted to, his childish thoughts cannot comprehend the situation. The foul scent spreads through the air, the insects flew away went back again and it was not a mere bug that he found rather a pack of flies, It was rotten all over. "A---a b--body". He ran as quickly as he can to there house to find some help. "Mother!! Mother!! Help me!!" He shouted. He go to every corner of the house but there is no one there. "Mother where are you?!" His panicking and his tears continues to flow. He didn't find her anywhere in the house and there is one place he still did not check out. "The garden!" He thought. "Mama, loves to plant specially, flowers" he said to himself. He run fast as he could and then, he is now in front of the garden and saw his mama's back. The fact of what happen still lingers on his mind and all he could do is cry and run. He opened the door slowly "Ma-------". He sudden put his hand to his mouth to stopped himself from making noise. His body was shaking as though he was in cold, he couldn't imagine on that child mind of his, the shocked and curiosity he felt when standing on that spot, but one thing is for sure that he is really in danger.
As he stand there, completely frozen. He saw his mama gardening, not the flowers she liked so much, but the sister of him his mama loved so much. The blood spreads onto the floor and some are still fresh, she chopped his sister's arms and legs and hang it up in the ceiling and put an orchid on it. His body was slit in half regardless of the head and inside of it was field with soil and fertilizers. The horror of it was in planted in his pure mind and he felt the fear as well as sadness when watching his mama doing it on his sister. Without a blink of the eyes, he gazed upon his sister who is eyes opened and tears flow onto her eyes. He dont know how to feel and he don't know how to think anymore, thus he walked back to run for it. "Cling!!!" He gasp, his foot touched the steel stand on the corner and make a loud noise. His heart beats faster for he knows what will happen. "Sef!! My boy, what a surprise" she said with a smile. Sef didn't answer and continues to step back slowly even though his legs are shaking. He wants to run but he can't for the fear has covered his entire body. "Oh, Sef dear, come! Come to Mama" she humbly persuaded. "S-si-sister", he pointed out. He finally say a word. "Oh! Your sister?", she's naughty that is why she must attoned for her sins", She said with pity. "but, i am mercyful that's why i let her to be the pot for my beloved flowers" she chuckled. "Come her Sef, my boy! Come to Mama" she speaks with a motherly tone. Sef shaked his head, slowly turn it from right to left and then, step backed again. "Sef, dear." She called. "Sef, come" and called again. "Sef!!", she shouted angrily then the boy gasp and collapsed; all went black.
"What kind of smell is this? Well, I guess its an apple pie"..... "Ha--", he covered his mouth fast for he remembered the horror he encountered. "Wait, what is this? I am on my bed?", he was confused of the memories he had. "Knock!, knock!, knock" Sef?". His eyes are wide open and tears begun to flow, "Mama" he whispered with his shivering voice. His body are shaking as the door knob begun to turn, "Click".... he closed his eyes because of fear and hopelessness he felt.
"Hey!, honey? What is wrong with you? You looked pale?". The boy slowly open his eyes and saw his loving mother, he felt as if his heart melts with relief. He missed the kind face of his mother, her humble voice and lovely smile. He cried as if there is no tomorrow and jumped towards his mother and hugged her tightly. Her mother chuckled "what is it now? Do you have nightmares honey?". He nod and hugged again his mother. "Now then, i have some apple pie for you honey, nightmares will go away" she said and smiled lovingly. Sef, the boy happily ate the pie, he ate it like a hyena, like it was his first apple pie in his life. "Munch, munch".... "Mama, why is that the apple pie taste differently?" He said curiously while eating the pie. His mother smiled and said "Because it has a special ingredient, honey". "So what is it Mama?", "Oh, it has some flesh and blood of your sister and a little bit rat poison on them" she chuckled. The boy realized that it was not a dream but its too late now. He already felt the pain all over his little body, blood flowing through his mouth and eyes that are looking on his mother asking why then slowly his eyes are closing and his strenght left his body. "Haha!" She laughed hard and loud yet tears flowed in her eyes. "Honey, you are naughty too just like you sister but ... I love the both of you that I want to kill you" she said and smiled. then, she embrace and carry his boy and sing a lullaby.
"Sleep now dear child, we will be together forever".
