The Blog(u) 23: Head-dress

‘Red, why red? It’s not as if I’m getting married, right?’
‘But today is still important. Your blog will open in a couple of hours, so you need to look good.’
‘And what’s with the head-dress anyway?’ plink peered out from under the jewelled mass of folded crimson brocade that perched precariously atop her head.
Kucing Gatal smoothed down the sleeves of plink’s dress. ‘No dress is complete without a matching hat. Now let’s have a look at you.’
Holding her arms out, plink turned slowly. The jewels in her head-dress sparkled gently as she did so, reflecting the shifting words that seemed to lie just under the fabric of her dress.
‘Why are there words on my clothes?’
The Kucing shook her head. ‘I don’t know,’ she confessed. ‘The words were never there before you wore it. This is very strange: the words are moving too.’
Even as they had in the Hall of the King , the words etched in golden fire wavered. Unlike the earlier, more desperate time before, the words now moved calmly, fading serenely in and out of view. When plink went to read one of the words, it would sink out of sight into the crimson brocade but its meaning would remain.
‘Courage,’ read plink
‘Trust,’ said the Kucing.
‘What does it all mean?’ the little one asked.
‘I think that is you.’
‘Really?’

*spreads out the picnic blanket on the ground, fishes out the plates, cuts up the paté, opens the bottle of wine, tunes the radio to KissFM, shoos the cows away, puts a blade of grass in your mouth, plucks a flower for your hair, tells the birds to start chirping, makes sure the pie is cooked, fixes the hammock, strips..*

At 6:10 pm, Blogger Kucing Gatal said...

Plink, I hope you were wearing new, matching underwear under that dress. It's my new philosophy. Make sure you're wearing nice bra and panties, just in case you kena langgar and have to go to the hospital.

 
At 4:29 am, Blogger plink said...

Yvy: Balak? LOL!

KG: Yes, thanks. I'm only wondering how on earth I'm going to write the kena langgar part. But I gerenti got happy ending.
*fingers crossed*
But why have to be matching underwear ah? As long as discreet, can right?

 
At 11:46 am, Blogger Kucing Gatal said...

In case your doctor turns out be to fabulously handsome and single and he has to see you in your ... *ahem* ... underclothing. God forbid you're wearing an old, holey, faded-to-grey pair of granny panties and an equally old, black, loose bra. Your chance with the doc gone before you even gain consciousness. Now, if you were wearing a sexy dark red lacy bra with a matching sexy dark red lacy pair of panties, the doctor would have that image seared into his brain forever, and he will have no rest until he has you in his possession.
Happy ending, right?

 
At 2:33 am, Blogger plink said...

Aiyoh, KG!! What have you been doing? Telltelltell, please.... =)

Don't tell me you're giving advice born of personal experience pulak? Jangan-jangan you kena langgar go to hospital recently ka?

 
At 7:27 pm, Blogger Kucing Gatal said...

Aiyo back at you plink... in KL where got handsome doctor in emergency room? Mostly old men with bald heads and hair growing out of their ears. But maybe ... just maybe ... the old doctor has a yummy bachelor son. Never give up hope!

And no, I don't wear matching underwear in case kena langgar. I wear matching underwear just in case I meet some hot dude somewhere and things heat up ;)

 
At 2:54 pm, Blogger plink said...

You have much experience of KL emergency rooms ar?

'..And no, I don't wear matching underwear in case kena langgar.' When I read the first half of the sentence, I ter-O.o pulak. Only when I read the 'in case kena langgar' part, did it start to make 'proper' (*ahem*) sense.... Kekeke

About the hunky bachelor son-of-doctor, you do know he's going to grow up to be just as bald as his Dad, ear hair and all, right?

Aiyoo indeed.
