[EF#19 Weekly Challenge] Traces in the Heart


The past will never be repeated. It gone forever. Waiting for it to come again is useless. However, our togetherness to people or friends in the past did not seem to be lost. They will leave traces in the heart. If i can choose, I will choose to remember only the beautiful memories and I will forget all bad memories. To fulfill the English Friday #19 The Memorable One, I will write some memorable moments with my friends.


My friendship with him began when we were both sitting in the first grade in elementary school. Since that time, I and Fuad become best friends. Although never happened a fight between me and him and caused us both mad each other, but it only for a few days and never happen again.

Fuad has a bike. I don’t have one and can’t ride a bike. So He always get me a ride on his bike every time we will go to another friend’s house. He never complained to me when He did that.

Fahri and Zia

Both are siblings, classmates and also my cousin. I and Fuad often go to their house. Their parents are rich. Every time we play there, We climbed up the guava tree, we reap the fruit, and we ate together at the top of the tree.


He was my friend in elementary school like Fuad. He was the person who introduced me to video games. Nintendo.

If I play to his house, we will be go to a neighbor’s house that rents Nintendo. For one game we had to pay one hundred rupiahs. The games that often We played were Super Mario, Contra, Kungfu, and Galaga. Because I was not proficient, I just helped push the button to kick, hit, or shoot, while Ikbal holding the control.

Syahrul, Fudhoil, and Sanusi.

They are my neighbors, my playmates, and classmates in elementary and junior high school. Together We played marbles. We usually go to school together on foot.

Syahid, Muhiddin, Subhan, and Hanafi.

We sat together in the third grade junior high school. From them I felt a means to share. Especially science. In times of preparation for the graduation exams, we study together.


He was the one who first introduced me to the computer. From him I learned how to run the computer programs.


He was a college friend. The most memorable experience with it is when jointly prepare the requirements and documents to make a job application, such as yellow cards, x-rays, and drug-free certificate.


After my work, I went back to college again. Teguh was my friend in college to get a S1. Our offices are located in different places, but our house is close enough. He was credited with giving a lift on his motorcycle every time we go home from campus at night.

Remembering them all, raises a question, if so many people who have done good to myself, how about me? What did I do for other people so I can leave the traces in their hearts as beautiful memories?

    Good question to close this article. But, I think, if i can answer it clearly, it mean I am the kind of man who want reward from what he have done. 🙂 Although, it is simply nice.
