A good news was spread in my elementary school. Ms. Risma, my teacher, would have a marriage party. Everyone was happy because of this news. I was very happy too. Ms. Risma, the kindest teacher in my elementary school, finally has found her half heart… My classmates and I in 4th grade wanted to give a present for her. We made a voice group, and we wanted to sing some songs in her happiest day…
Actually, this good news didn’t come alone. I thought that there was a bad news too behind this good news. Huft,, Ms. Risma would marry a man who worked abroad. Consequently, she would never teach us again and accompany her husband in another country.
My friends and I were sad although we knew that our best teacher must be happy with this… Our voice group (we didn’t make a name for our group :p) wanted to give her an unforgettable performance. We wanted to perform as best as we can. We made a brainstorming.
Finally, we found a great idea (I think it’s a great idea for an elementary child :D). We would adapt a popular song in that time. I forget the original title, but I remember that this song was sung by Sherina Munaf. We made a little change with that song. The word “Sahabat” was changed into “Ustadzah” (the Arabic of guru –red). We thought this song was very touching, heart-rending…
Finally, the day was coming. We had made a perfect preparation. We hadn’t drunk ice cream or cold beverages and hadn’t eaten some spicy food to make our voice clearer. Every member of the voice goup wore a pink uniform. We looked awesome. The master of ceremony (MC) called us and we got into the stage. I felt nervous.
*Unfortunately, the second page of this story was lost 😦 (super_cry). I forget the whole story, but I remember that we sang with all of our heart and Ms. Risma was moved. I felt wanna cry when I sang this song, because she was our precious teacher :’)
