The Trees


When I was young child, in the summer time, I would always sit in a chair surrounded by a bunch of trees. The leaves would always tickle my shoulders, so my dad would always tell me that the tree monster is going to get me (since the feel of the leaves sometimes felt like human hands). I would always laugh this off.

On my seventh birthday, my mother and father guided me outside in a blindfold and sat me in the chair. When I say down I felt the leaves tickle me. I giggled and ignored it. My parents took off the blindfold to reveal a new pool! But when I turned around I noticed something odd. The trees surrounding the chair had been chopped down.

Ketika aku masih anak-anak, di waktu musim panas, aku selalu duduk di kursi yang dikelilingi oleh banyak pohon. Daun-daunnya selalu menggelitik bahuku, maka ayahku pernah berkata bahwa monster pohon mau menangkapku (sebab sentuhan daunnya seperti tangan manusia). Aku selalu menertawakannya.

Pada ulangtahunku yang ke-7, ibu dan ayahku membimbingku ke arah luar dalam keadaan mata tertutup dan mendudukanku pada kursi. Saat sudah duduk, aku merasa daun-daun menggelitikku. Aku kegelian dan membiarkannya. Orangtuaku mengambil penutup mata dan menunjukkan kolam renang baru. Tapi ketika aku membalikkan badan, aku merasa ada yang aneh. Pohon-pohon di sekitarku sudah ditebang.
