Just as my friends and I were about to make a move from Ipoh for our Belum-Temenggor trip last weekend, a call came in on my handphone with the MI ringtone. It was Mrs K. At first I thought it could be another one of her attempt to try and borrow money, but then I remembered, although she’d fail in her attempt each time, usually when she tries to borrow money, she’d use SMS. When I answered her call, she asked…
“Kak, nak tanya sikit lah kak. Malam tadi saya adalah bersama dengan Abang *** (hubby’s name). Pas tu kondom bocor lah kak, macam mana ni?”
*Just for the record, Mrs K had so far been tested negative although Mr K had been diagnosed HIV+ for more than 4 years now.
Oh dear, that was the second time she asked me the same question. Don’t they ever learn?
Told her what is done cannot be undone. She will have to wait a while and then go for testing. Mrs K was thinking that it would help if in the meantime she takes any antibiotics or something to that effect.
She then told me the whole story. Apparently Mr K is back into drugs and always short of money and Mrs K finally had it and asked for divorce. Mr K got angry and beat her up. As a result, Mrs K filed a police report and when she got home and told Mr K what she did, he pulled her into their bedroom and forced her to have sex with him.
Hmmm… I doubt it was a case of “kondom bocor” after all. They probably didn’t use condom at all.
When Shah, their eldest son, found out that his mother asked for divorce, all he said to her was that she should have done so long ago. Shah had always been angry with his father. To him his father was the cause of all the their family’s troubles.
Mrs K did mention that Mr K would be leaving the house that day (the day she called me) because he was afraid one of Mrs K’s brothers may come and beat him up. I’m not sure if that really took place since I have not heard any news from Mrs K since then. I don’t know if she tried to call me when I was in Belum… there was no phone reception most of the time anyway.
I will need to call her one of these days to find out more.
