A Phone at a Price

If only I get to buy a normal iPhone in the first place.

All I've always dreamed of is upgrading my old Nokia 1600 hand phone to a better one.

All I just wanted is a decent hand phone with a good camera for my blogging.

A week ago, my mum has promised me to get me a new one for my birthday on June.

Sadly, that won't be the case.

Just recently, Mum was horrified by the news about my cousin. From what I have heard from her, my cousin became the latest mugging victim a few days ago.

He was on his way back home from a nearby train station when he was surrounded by a few Malay boys. I wouldn't know if they are school boys or not. What I know is, they demanded money from him and he told them he ain't have any with him.

And what would they do when their demands are not met? They resort to violence. They pinned him on the floor, and he fractured his arm when he fell. They punched him and kicked him. In the end, what they need isn't money. They just want the pleasure of causing hurt and pain on him and they wouldn't let him go.

If it wasn't for a good Samaritan who happen to pass by the scene, my cousin would be injured even more badly. Those boys may have fled, but I know they will prey on more victims in the near future.

As of now, my cousin's arm is on a sling. He's okay now, and this would surely be an incident that he will never forget.

And as of now, Mum was so scared that this event would happen to me too. It looks like I won't get the phone that I dream of now...

The next two years, she said. The next two years...
