10 - And Finally, Wajah Seorang Special Barua

Abang kata, SBs (Special Branch) are not supposed to be known by the public.

Kalau public pukul diorang, diorang tak boleh bawa kes ke mahkamah sebab diorang tak da bukti yang diorang kerja as SBs.

But of course, since married to Abang and having followed Abang to quite a number of gatherings, demos and talks, Abang dah kenalkan aku ke quite a number of SBs yang dah jadi macam kawan pula.

"Heyyyy Zunar! Lama tak nampak kau! Rindu la kat kau!"

*tarik salam Abang peluk-peluk Abang*

"Itu la kau, aku pun rindu nak maki-maki kau! Hahahaha!" Abang would always reply in jest.

Kadang tu, in some gatherings, I'd find Abang deeply engrossed in conversation with one or two people whom I thot would be among Abang's comrades. Bila dah habis berborak dan aku tanya "Sapa tu tadi?", Abang would jawab, "Alah, SB. Dia nak kena pi Greenwood. Soh Abang tolong beritahu dia details of this gathering nanti. Ingat Abang bodoh ke."

Hahaha.

In my 3rd year as Mrs. Zunar, if people (even my parents) warn me about SBs catching me as a Civil Servant being in opposition gatherings, I'd say, "Too late dah la. I know my photos are plastered already in their albums."

Aku tak nak cakap besar nor sound provocative to them, but aku rasa tak guna nak takutkan diorang.

Why? Because I'm with Abang and his comrades, who are actually fighting for their and their families' causes jugak. If Abang and his comrades berjaya, their families would benefit, bukan orang lain lagi.

And their presence is merely for intimidation. Bak kata Abang, kita ni duk takbir "Allahu Akbar!", means Allah Yang Maha Besar, tapi depa-depa ni duk takbir "Abdullahu Akbar!". Hahahaha

So, ceritanya tadi, lepas pencalonan Tan Sri Khalid, Abang drove over to the Kompleks Sukan to pick his journalists from there. Abang was in his KeADILan tee, while I donned an azure blouse.

Suddenly, we spotted this bloke, capturing our car and us in his video.

Impulsively, I took his photo. Abang kata, SB tu. So Abang drove closely beside him so that I could take another shot of him.

Barua ni macam tahu pulak aku nak ambik gambar dia, dok tutup-tutup muka, malu-malu.

Hek elllleee.

Kau ingat kau sorang aje boleh ambil gambar kami, ey???
