Eternal Flame (The Bangles)

It was a love-hate relationship of sorts. When he first saw her sauntering in, he thought she was heaven-sent. Tried as he might in courting her then, she would always reject his advances in favour of his older brother, who was well-built and had a bad boy persona. With his quiet demeanour and smaller body frame, he didn’t stand a chance against his older sibling and could only admire her beauty from afar. This went on for a few years until fate stepped in, his rival died suddenly due to unnatural causes.

For once, he became the man that he never was, a pillar of strength and a source of comfort for his beloved. No doubt there were instances when she would reduce him to a pulp with her feisty character and temperamental ways, but his love for her was too strong for the relationship to end. They lived together for a few more years until the inevitable happened.

He died of old age and she was alone.

It was a sullen affair after his death. She would continue with her daily rituals and tried her best to keep things as normal as it was before. But the nights proved unbearable, she longed for the warmth that her late companion provided, the soothing sound of his snores, his body odour … and most of all … his neverending love. 

He died a month ago. Last night, she decided to join her love.

She will be buried next to him this afternoon at the nearby unofficial Sheng Siong Pet Cemetery.

Rest in peace Putih. Kontot’s waiting to smell you again.
