hei…hei…kau bisa mendengarkanku? hei…

Aku terbangun dari tidur karena fungsi alarm di tanganku, namun suara panggilan sesaat sebelum aku terbangun tadi masih terekam dengan jelas di ingatanku. Sama seperti saat-saat terjaganya Siera untuk pertama kalinya dari tidur, akhirnya aku mendengar kembali panggilan itu setelah sekian tahun. Pagi itu aku langsung bergegas menuju ruang SPINX PROJECT dan mendapati Siera sudah berada di sana.

kau juga mendengarnya?” tanya Siera padaku sebelum aku sempat menanyakan hal yang sama kepadanya.

ya, siapa kali ini?

aku juga belum tahu. Mungkin kita harus sekali lagi menjalankan caramu menemukanku dulu untuk mengetahuinya” jawab Siera sambil tersenyum Continue reading

CATALYST – Part 3

6 April 2020

Perdebatan sengit terjadi di antara para ilmuwan pasca Perang Nuklir 5 hari yang lalu. Hampir tidak ada peneliti yang di laboratorium ini yang dapat berpikir jernih ketika departemen logistik mengatakan bahwa cadangan makanan yang tersisa untuk menghidupi seluruh penghuni laboratorium saat ini akan habis dalam 1 tahun dengan konsumsi normal.

Aku mengerti bahwa kita semua terpuruk dalam keputusasaan menanti kematian yang tak terelakkan karena cadangan makanan yang akan terus menyusut. Bumi yang selama ini menjadi penyedia sumber kehidupan kita pun sudah tidak bisa lagi melakukan fungsinya. Kalian bebas mengutuk para pemimpin dunia yang merampas semua yang kita miliki berikut keluarga kita tercinta.Namun sebagai ilmuwan, tidak ada hal lain yang bisa kita lakukan atas tragedi yang telah terlanjur terjadi selain menemukan solusi untuk kelangsungan hidup kita bersama. Karena itu, jika ada di antara kalian yang memiliki ide untuk menyelamatkan kita dari krisis ini, tolong disampaikan sekarang ataupun nanti. Aku akan terus menunggu solusi cerdas dari kalian hingga akhir waktu karena aku telah memilih untuk tidak berputus asa. Terima kasihContinue reading

Profesir Zein sudah pulang? yey!” seruku spontan sambil langsung berlari menuju lift yang berada 40 meter dari posisi kami berdiri tanpa memperdulikan seruan Lan yang memintaku menunggunya. Continue reading

It’s strange to make this CerPen as second share after Light, because I made this fiction story far before Light in Bahasa [>_<]

But no matter what, I chose to share this one, please lend your time to enjoy the story, and give some constructive comment if you like it. Thanx [^_^]

CATALYST – Part 1

1 Mei 2046,

Sudah 26 tahun berlalu sejak perang dunia ke-3. Bencana global yang hanya berlangsung selama 5 hari tersebut memusnahkan nyaris seluruh makhluk hidup yang ada di bumi. Laboratorium yang selama belasan tahun kubenci malah menjadi penyelamat hidup kami, para peneliti yang dipekerjakan untuk penelitian militer. Namun dalam beberapa belas tahun kedepan kami akan mengembalikannya seperti semula. Bumi yang hijau dengan tumbuh-tumbuhan, bumi yang ramai dengan nyanyian serangga dan kicauan burung, bumi yang asri dengan rantai dan jaring-jaring makanan yang teratur, udara yang bebas untuk kami hirup, air sungai yang aman untuk kami minum, serta tanah yang subur untuk kami tanami. Kami akan memasang pondasi untuk itu semua hari ini dan secara teratur dilanjutkan hingga akhir bulan nanti. Continue reading

LIGHT – Part 7

sorry for not telling you the truth up until now

“…I won’t forgive you

Haha, I know. But still, I’m sorry..”

Again, why this stupidity of mine still exist even in situation like this. Why can’t I become more honest even after arrive at this point.

Hhhh…what a pity, I can’t even see the thing I want to see the most even if it stand before me right now, and I know precisely what would come next. This is the end for me, haha

I’ll be your eyes. I’ll read any book you want to read. I’ll describe everything around you and anything you want to see in perfect detail. I’ll explain it as many time you want me to say. I’ll make it clear for you as you can see it in a bright day. Let me be your eyes…please let me be your eyes…please live…” Continue reading

LIGHT – Part 6 (Flash Back)

-oOo-

It’s just like law of nature. The more intense something being used, the faster it’ll broken. The very similar phenomenon happened to him. With so many knowledge stored inside his head, he realize right away that his body couldn’t stand for long. The way he absorb new information, learn it, and freely used it anytime he want just way too unnatural. Then soon after that he come into conclusion that it was his anomality in neural system that causing that. What’s that left is, what’s the drawback? He began to scared to imagine when his tired cells starting to die? What would he lost first? Which sense? Or will it directly attack his brain so that makes him a living corpse? The though has became scary and scarier that he start to lock him self in his own room.

He’s lucky that in the middle of desperation, someone never tired to whispered to his ear while hugging him each day…and every passing night. Told him that anyone born with purpose. That anyone have their own mission to completed. Most of them born normal or even less, but some of them given an outstanding gift that with it they could conquer all the others…or use it to help the others. Continue reading

Months has been passed since then. The light road that he diligently made at last reached its end. Just yesterday afternoon he said that we can finalize our research because we have finished completing all possible related variable and sucessfully correlate it into three general formula. I don’t know how to express it properly but I’m so happy to hear that, much more than I though. I got too hyped that I started to singing and talking non stop like 5 years old naughty girl. It’s really surprised how I can wrote the report with sound speed while talking that much, and I became more noisy after he agreed with my proposal to throw a big party as celebration for completing the final report that night.

It’ll stay as truth, it should be the truth…until his first detereorating symptoms comes in the next morning. Continue reading

Professor, please tell me more about him…my research partner…Giande

Professor Ryrien looks surprised with my sudden request. He even got stoned for a while before ask me why did I wanted to know about it. But in the end he accepted my request after I said that I came every night to laboratory and somehow I became more and more curious about my partner. Professor asked me to follow him into his personal office room so nobody else would hear out talk.

I adopted him since baby from an orphanage. He was a really cheerful and brilliant child. He love to learn anything around him since his young age, that’s make him pretty good on almost everything. But what’s the most awesome part about him is he never show any sign of arrogance. Despite his superior skills he always patiently share his knowledge to those around him. He knows really well how to teach them in the most appropiate way. None of his friends ever do bad things to him. They always love him for the way he act, the way he talk. He also possess a really nice smile. It’s a pitty that none of those pretty maiden that fall for him ever able to marry him

Haha, why?Continue reading

Who said everyone got the same potential? Who said everyone will be good at something as long as they put serious though and effort into it? Yeah, may be you would gain the ability to some degree. But let me tell you something, half ass skill will bring you to no where in this world

Wh…what? How can someone with terible academic score like you saying such superior speech?

Me? Ah, yeah, I guess you’re right. Forget it

See? It’s a good thing that you remember your place at least

Haha, keep your ideal sweety talk and I’ll see how you walk on that dreamy pathContinue reading

Somehow I could never get used to this useless routine. I’m already at the peak of my boredom. This static data record drove me crazy. I’m pretty sure that right here right now I can create several constant numbers to included on special formula that used to predict this researh progress for next hundred years, then present it in the world scale scientific seminar as “Zero Progress Formula”. I’m serious!

This can’t be continued. My precious brain will corrode in the most tragic way if I stay like this for another hour. I’ve made my mind. Today I’ll go home early to take a deep slumber, got full strength power to hang that nocturnal bastard on the roof, and make him my personal sandbag for eternity if he cannot answer my curiosity. Just wait until I kick him out from his hibernation hole tonight. Continue reading
