lessons learned

Batrisyia, wake up! it's 6 plus already, go and take your bath, time to go to school
but Ma, today is Friday!
So it is!
So I went up, took my wudhu and performed the solat Suboh. cake order today ( except for one customer coming over at 8.30 am for her marble cheese brownies.
I was at a traffic light but somehow I couldn't see the light clearly, wasn't sure whether it was green or red. After realising that it was not yet 'green' I backed my car and allowed the other cars to pass. However, something was not right, the traffic wasn't moving! nobody can neither go here  nor there.
what went wrong?
Out of the blue, a policeman came over and tapped on my window
oh oh, what have I done now
Is something wrong officer?
I quickly asked my girls  to sit at the back
I checked to see if my seat belt was on.

is there some kind of accident that caused this chaos
He didn't say much,only  a smile
He asked for my driver's license.
This is the first
Suddenly I saw  him writing on his summon paper.
What was my offence?
What did I do wrong
What was I summoned for?
I asked  him again but again I got no reply from him

He left me flabbergasted and suddenly my car moved forward
How did that happen

I did not hit the gas but the car kept moving and I was driving away from the junction towards a row of shoop lots somewhere nearby.
I parked my car and started walking and approached a lady in one of the shops.
I was asking for her help to get me back to the junction , which I was not familiar with. All I mnew was that it was the main road from Alor Setar to Bukit Kayu Hitam
wow! Thatbis a very long stretch!
I had to get back there cos somehow, which. didn't know , I lost my two girls! How could I have left them there? In the middle of nowhere! in a strange place, at night!
I had to get t them fast.
somehow, we just couldn't find the road , she didn't seem to know and I definitely couldn't remember the place
What am going to do? What will happen t my two girls?
i panicked! waht if? so many what ifs came into mind
Bam! it struck me! the kids never get off the car so surely they were still in the car with me but why did I have  this feeling that they aren't?
but the question now is where did I park the car?

I did not push the pedal but the car  moved and suddenly I wa driving away from the junction towards a few blocks of shop lots
