Everytime Asna wants to pick a fight, she’ll start saying “Mama loves me more….” When my mum catches her saying that, she would say, “Cakap la macamtu. Nak kena ke?”
My mum’s aware that once the battle starts between us siblings, Asna will end up losing and turning emo.
Anyway, one day I felt bad for her, because I learned that she’s really bothered about not being loved the most. As the eldest who was never clingy or cared about being the favorite, I didn’t get it — but to see her so affected by it, I thought I should make her feel better. So I told her:
“I’m sorry I always bully you. But you know, Mama loves you the most. Babah loves Nyahman the most. But nobody loves me the most.”
(Must buat ayat kesian.)
She was beaming.
“So I’m the favorite?”
Should’ve seen her face, like OMG Cikyong finally admits it!
“Don’t you feel bad for me??? Nobody loves me the most!!!”
“… he’s not a parent.”
Then she made a pretentious sorry face, hugged and patted my back.
“You must wish that you’re me, right?”
Here’s something she wrote on one of the mother’s day card she’d given my mum (she showed the other two cards to me, but tried to hide this one from my knowledge).
No mercy next time!
