My husband asked me who called. “It’s Nik. Yda’s husband.” I answered.
“Why? Is she in labour?” he asked. “Yes. Nik said that she cannot tahan any more with birth ball and she has jumped in the pool already” I explained.
“Then, let’s just go there.” He decided. “Tak jadi beli grocery?” I asked.
“Nanti-nanti lah. Maybe she is in need of emotional support right now” said my husband.
