Bridal Car

26 years ago, this car was just a rusted metal crap in my grandpop’s old garage. It was left to decay and die its natural death until I was born. Once my painter parents learned their first child will be a girl, they christened the car with colours. We’re like twins born on that fateful summer day.

With thousand trips this car has took me and my family, today is both the happiest and the saddest.

Tonight this car won’t bring me home any more, cause it is now my turn to create a home I will call my own.

I won’t forget that day.

Amid the heart-rate machine’s beep, Dad recalled how mom easily wakes up anytime of the night whenever she hears his buggy’s honks.

While dad’s reminiscing, the doctor entered and told us that after over six months in coma, mom might not wake up again. We might just wait in vain.

Sickly dad asked me to get his old unmoving  buggy. He said, “It is our last chance, buddy.”

After I returned, dad opened mom’s windows. He went down and pressed his buggy’s horns.

I won’t forget that day…

when we waited for a honk-made miracle.
