This is sad.

I woke up. Got into the shower. Turned on the computer. And logged on to Y!M.
First thing I saw was Azraai's status message;
"Al-fatihah buat sahabat kite Ahmad Idris Helmi--"

Not THAT Idris, I hoped.

So I messaged Azraai and asked.
rai: idris helmi
rai: standard-school mate
rai: accident
me: fair skin, with specticles?
rai: yep
rai: passed away this morning

It was that Idris..

I can't remember when was the last time I talked to him. I can barely remember his face, to be truth.. but I remembered him from my first week in 1 Jingga.
School bell rang, my mom was outside waiting for me to come out and come home with her. We were walking through the assembly area and Idris ran towards me.
"Ida, let's play tag!" (Ida, jom main keja keja!)
I was torn. My mom was smiling next to me. I looked up at her and asked what I should say, and she told me that I was going home.
"I'm going home.." (Kite nak balek rumah laa)
He said okay, and ran off to join his friends.

He was among the first people I talked to in school.
Among the first people I talked to in LIFE, really. (Family excluded)
sigh. Even my parents remembers him!. Any time I mentioned a guy named Idris (eg. the LOUD Idris who lives in Sec. 4, cousins with icky Syed Ridhwan) they'd ask me if he was the Idris from standard one.

I'm not sure if I am lucky to have not talked to him for so many years or unlucky for it.
