"At the 44th minute of the football match, Huda tried to save the goal from the threat of Marcel, but his chest was hit by the leg of Rodrigues. He was still able to move, but then he fell unconscious. A few hours after being brought to the hospital, this goalkeeper died. The victory of his team (2-0) was filled with tears and hysterical weepings of the members and passionate fans of the team in the stadium." (real news, happened in my place, few months ago)
Ridha, a housewife, watched that shocking news on TV with mouth opened. She remember her only son, Afan, was practicing football with his friends of age thirteen. She waited his arrival anxiously.
When he arrived home, his mother hugged him and asked if he was alright. He just wondered why his mother so suddenly behaved strangely. She then told him to stop playing football and change the extra-activity into music or else. He couldn't believe that his mother would tell him so. At his very labile age, he had so big heart to finally follow what his mother wanted.
He joined music courses for a few months. His playing with keyboard, guitar, or drum was not so good. It was obviously seen on his face that he didn't enjoy the activities he did. His father noticed it and approached his son asking if he still wanted to play football. He couldn't deny that 'yes' was the answer.
His father was thinking so hard to come up with an idea. He tried to talk with his wife, but no good result. Her apprehension about football players was truly serious.
One day, Afan got an accident when playing piano. The cover was suddenly closed as the props were broken. He lost two of his fingers.
His mother and father felt really sad. Afan just mused of his life in gloom. He was not so good with music, then it was even worse with only 8 fingers, he was thinking deeply. His eyes told their parents so. His dad finally said to mom, "Dear, there is a risk in every activity. We should give him a chance. At least, let's make him happy, giving him a way to reach his dream." Then, his mother approved of his husband's premise.
The big smile appeared with tears on Afan's face. He really thanked to his mother. He promised to make their parents proud as he dreamed to be a National Football player, and join Football World Cup someday.
