I think there's a ghost in my bathroom!
Sunday afternoon, I was lying on the sofa in my bedroom trying to catch a nap. It was 1pm, the afternoon News was just starting on TV1. Nizzar was playing somewhere in the room, throwing things and uplifting anything that he could lay his little fingers on. I baru lepas mandi kan dia sebelum tu.
MrNordin was in the bathroom, talking to someone on his mobile phone. I think he was talking to his cousin, about my FIL. Sometimes, I would curi2 dengar his conversation from outside the bathroom door, but that afternoon, I was just too sleepy to eavesdrop. Lama jugak dia cakap, a good 15 minutes ada. I continued watching the News while trying hard to stay awake.
A few minutes after that, I heard he said goodbye to the other person and heard the chest of drawer being pulled out ~ a sign that he has finished his bathroom business. My husband would do this everytime before he comes out of the bathroom (to take his briefs). I waited for him to come out, but he did not. I figured, "Ini sure main game pulak ni..". He does that sometimes, before he jumps into the shower ~ and it could take forever. I looked at the watch, it was 1.30pm.
So, I tunggu lagi. Tunggu, punya tunggu, dah dekat pukul 2. I jenguk kat bawah pintu bilik air (from afar), tak de pun nampak bayang2 dia. Lampu bilik air masih terpasang. "Eh, apasal lama sangat dalam bilik air ni? Dah terpengsan ke apa?" (I started imagining dia kena stroke and collapsed on the bathroom floor, that's why tak keluar2). I asked Nizzar to go knock on the bathroom door and call out for his Baba, but budak kecik tu buat tak tahu saja (quite unusual... selalunya dia akan pegi jerit panggil Baba dia kalau I suruh...)
Tak apa, I tunggu lagi. 5 minutes to 2pm, I dah hilang sabar. So I SMS him, "Buat apa lama sangat dalam bilik air tu, yang?" and waited for his answer. Punyalah I terkejut when I saw his reply, "I'm outside lah... "
Hah??!! Who's in the bathroom then? I quickly called him to confirm ~ memang he was outside, pegi kedai beli barang! I tak perasan pun, all the while I thought he was in the bathroom! Jeng... jeng... jeng... siapa yang dalam bilik air tu??
When I told the girls, they just smiled. My maid said she always 'heard' me calling her name when I'm not at home. Nadira also has heard the same a few times. When MrNordin got home, I related the story to him. Surprise, surprise... he said he did talk to his cousin that afternoon, but OUTSIDE... not from the bathroom!
Hee... spooky, ayy? I was very convinced I heard HIM talking in the bathroom. It was his voice ~ loud & clear! Added to that, the sound of the chest of drawer being pulled out, siapa yang tarik drawer tu?
I think, there's a friendly ghost living in our bathroom....
