Beauty and the Beast


yah ini sedikit cerita tentang Beauty and the Beast
There was once a very rich merchant, who had six children, three sons, and three daughters; being a man of sense, he spared no cost for their education, but gave them all kinds of masters. His daughters were extremely handsome, especially the youngest. When she was little everybody admired her, and called her "The little Beauty;" so that, as she grew up, she still went by the name of Beauty, which made her sisters very jealous.
The youngest, as she was handsomer, was also better than her sisters. The two eldest had a great deal of pride, because they were rich. They gave themselves ridiculous airs, and would not visit other merchants' daughters, nor keep company with any but persons of quality. They went out every day to parties of pleasure, balls, plays, concerts, and so forth, and they laughed at their youngest sister, because she spent the greatest part of her time in reading good books.
As it was known that they were great fortunes, several eminent merchants made their addresses to them; but the two eldest said, they would never marry, unless they could meet with a duke, or an earl at least. Beauty very civilly thanked them that courted her, and told them she was too young yet to marry, but chose to stay with her father a few years longer.
All at once the merchant lost his whole fortune, excepting a small country house at a great distance from town, and told his children with tears in his eyes, they must go there and work for their living. The two eldest answered, that they would not leave the town, for they had several lovers, who they were sure would be glad to have them, though they had no fortune; but the good ladies were mistaken, for their lovers slighted and forsook them in their poverty. As they were not beloved on account of their pride, everybody said; they do not deserve to be pitied, we are very glad to see their pride humbled, let them go and give themselves quality airs in milking the cows and minding their dairy. But, added they, we are extremely concerned for Beauty, she was such a charming, sweet-tempered creature, spoke so kindly to poor people, and was of such an affable, obliging behavior. Nay, several gentlemen would have married her, though they knew she had not a penny; but she told them she could not think of leaving her poor father in his misfortunes, but was determined to go along with him into the country to comfort and attend him. Poor Beauty at first was sadly grieved at the loss of her fortune; "but," said she to herself, "were I to cry ever so much, that would not make things better, I must try to make myself happy without a fortune."
When they came to their country house, the merchant and his three sons applied themselves to husbandry and tillage; and Beauty rose at four in the morning, and made haste to have the house clean, and dinner ready for the family. In the beginning she found it very difficult, for she had not been used to work as a servant, but in less than two months she grew stronger and healthier than ever. After she had done her work, she read, played on the harpsichord, or else sung whilst she spun.
On the contrary, her two sisters did not know how to spend their time; they got up at ten, and did nothing but saunter about the whole day, lamenting the loss of their fine clothes and acquaintance. "Do but see our youngest sister," said they, one to the other, "what a poor, stupid, mean-spirited creature she is, to be contented with such an unhappy dismal situation."
The good merchant was of quite a different opinion; he knew very well that Beauty outshone her sisters, in her person as well as her mind, and admired her humility and industry, but above all her humility and patience; for her sisters not only left her all the work of the house to do, but insulted her every moment.
The family had lived about a year in this retirement, when the merchant received a letter with an account that a vessel, on board of which he had effects, was safely arrived. This news had liked to have turned the heads of the two eldest daughters, who immediately flattered themselves with the hopes of returning to town, for they were quite weary of a country life; and when they saw their father ready to set out, they begged of him to buy them new gowns, headdresses, ribbons, and all manner of trifles; but Beauty asked for nothing for she thought to herself, that all the money her father was going to receive, would scarce be sufficient to purchase everything her sisters wanted.
"What will you have, Beauty?" said her father.
"Since you have the goodness to think of me," answered she, "be so kind to bring me a rose, for as none grows hereabouts, they are a kind of rarity." Not that Beauty cared for a rose, but she asked for something, lest she should seem by her example to condemn her sisters' conduct, who would have said she did it only to look particular.
The good man went on his journey, but when he came there, they went to law with him about the merchandise, and after a great deal of trouble and pains to no purpose, he came back as poor as before.
He was within thirty miles of his own house, thinking on the pleasure he should have in seeing his children again, when going through a large forest he lost himself. It rained and snowed terribly; besides, the wind was so high, that it threw him twice off his horse, and night coming on, he began to apprehend being either starved to death with cold and hunger, or else devoured by the wolves, whom he heard howling all round him, when, on a sudden, looking through a long walk of trees, he saw a light at some distance, and going on a little farther perceived it came from a place illuminated from top to bottom. The merchant returned God thanks for this happy discovery, and hastened to the place, but was greatly surprised at not meeting with any one in the outer courts. His horse followed him, and seeing a large stable open, went in, and finding both hay and oats, the poor beast, who was almost famished, fell to eating very heartily; the merchant tied him up to the manger, and walking towards the house, where he saw no one, but entering into a large hall, he found a good fire, and a table plentifully set out with but one cover laid. As he was wet quite through with the rain and snow, he drew near the fire to dry himself. "I hope," said he, "the master of the house, or his servants will excuse the liberty I take; I suppose it will not be long before some of them appear."
He waited a considerable time, until it struck eleven, and still nobody came. At last he was so hungry that he could stay no longer, but took a chicken, and ate it in two mouthfuls, trembling all the while. After this he drank a few glasses of wine, and growing more courageous he went out of the hall, and crossed through several grand apartments with magnificent furniture, until he came into a chamber, which had an exceeding good bed in it, and as he was very much fatigued, and it was past midnight, he concluded it was best to shut the door, and go to bed.
It was ten the next morning before the merchant waked, and as he was going to rise he was astonished to see a good suit of clothes in the room of his own, which were quite spoiled; certainly, said he, this palace belongs to some kind fairy, who has seen and pitied my distress. He looked through a window, but instead of snow saw the most delightful arbors, interwoven with the beautifullest flowers that were ever beheld. He then returned to the great hall, where he had supped the night before, and found some chocolate ready made on a little table. "Thank you, good Madam Fairy," said he aloud, "for being so careful, as to provide me a breakfast; I am extremely obliged to you for all your favors."
The good man drank his chocolate, and then went to look for his horse, but passing through an arbor of roses he remembered Beauty's request to him, and gathered a branch on which were several; immediately he heard a great noise, and saw such a frightful Beast coming towards him, that he was ready to faint away.
"You are very ungrateful," said the Beast to him, in a terrible voice; "I have saved your life by receiving you into my castle, and, in return, you steal my roses, which I value beyond any thing in the universe, but you shall die for it; I give you but a quarter of an hour to prepare yourself, and say your prayers."
The merchant fell on his knees, and lifted up both his hands, "My lord," said he, "I beseech you to forgive me, indeed I had no intention to offend in gathering a rose for one of my daughters, who desired me to bring her one."
"My name is not My Lord," replied the monster, "but Beast; I don't love compliments, not I. I like people to speak as they think; and so do not imagine, I am to be moved by any of your flattering speeches. But you say you have got daughters. I will forgive you, on condition that one of them come willingly, and suffer for you. Let me have no words, but go about your business, and swear that if your daughter refuse to die in your stead, you will return within three months."
The merchant had no mind to sacrifice his daughters to the ugly monster, but he thought, in obtaining this respite, he should have the satisfaction of seeing them once more, so he promised, upon oath, he would return, and the Beast told him he might set out when he pleased, "but," added he, "you shall not depart empty handed; go back to the room where you lay, and you will see a great empty chest; fill it with whatever you like best, and I will send it to your home," and at the same time Beast withdrew.
"Well," said the good man to himself, "if I must die, I shall have the comfort, at least, of leaving something to my poor children." He returned to the bedchamber, and finding a great quantity of broad pieces of gold, he filled the great chest the Beast had mentioned, locked it, and afterwards took his horse out of the stable, leaving the palace with as much grief as he had entered it with joy. The horse, of his own accord, took one of the roads of the forest, and in a few hours the good man was at home.
His children came round him, but instead of receiving their embraces with pleasure, he looked on them, and holding up the branch he had in his hands, he burst into tears. "Here, Beauty," said he, "take these roses, but little do you think how dear they are like to cost your unhappy father," and then related his fatal adventure. Immediately the two eldest set up lamentable outcries, and said all manner of ill-natured things to Beauty, who did not cry at all.
"Do but see the pride of that little wretch," said they; "she would not ask for fine clothes, as we did; but no truly, Miss wanted to distinguish herself, so now she will be the death of our poor father, and yet she does not so much as shed a tear."
"Why should I," answered Beauty, "it would be very needless, for my father shall not suffer upon my account, since the monster will accept of one of his daughters, I will deliver myself up to all his fury, and I am very happy in thinking that my death will save my father's life, and be a proof of my tender love for him."
"No, sister," said her three brothers, "that shall not be, we will go find the monster, and either kill him, or perish in the attempt."
"Do not imagine any such thing, my sons," said the merchant, "Beast's power is so great, that I have no hopes of your overcoming him. I am charmed with Beauty's kind and generous offer, but I cannot yield to it. I am old, and have not long to live, so can only loose a few years, which I regret for your sakes alone, my dear children."
"Indeed father," said Beauty, "you shall not go to the palace without me, you cannot hinder me from following you." It was to no purpose all they could say. Beauty still insisted on setting out for the fine palace, and her sisters were delighted at it, for her virtue and amiable qualities made them envious and jealous.
The merchant was so afflicted at the thoughts of losing his daughter, that he had quite forgot the chest full of gold, but at night when he retired to rest, no sooner had he shut his chamber door, than, to his great astonishment, he found it by his bedside; he was determined, however, not to tell his children, that he was grown rich, because they would have wanted to return to town, and he was resolved not to leave the country; but he trusted Beauty with the secret, who informed him, that two gentlemen came in his absence, and courted her sisters; she begged her father to consent to their marriage, and give them fortunes, for she was so good, that she loved them and forgave heartily all their ill usage. These wicked creatures rubbed their eyes with an onion to force some tears when they parted with their sister, but her brothers were really concerned. Beauty was the only one who did not shed tears at parting, because she would not increase their uneasiness.
The horse took the direct road to the palace, and towards evening they perceived it illuminated as at first. The horse went of himself into the stable, and the good man and his daughter came into the great hall, where they found a table splendidly served up, and two covers. The merchant had no heart to eat, but Beauty, endeavoring to appear cheerful, sat down to table, and helped him. "Afterwards," thought she to herself, "Beast surely has a mind to fatten me before he eats me, since he provides such plentiful entertainment." When they had supped they heard a great noise, and the merchant, all in tears, bid his poor child, farewell, for he thought Beast was coming. Beauty was sadly terrified at his horrid form, but she took courage as well as she could, and the monster having asked her if she came willingly; "ye -- e -- es," said she, trembling.
The beast responded, "You are very good, and I am greatly obliged to you; honest man, go your ways tomorrow morning, but never think of coming here again."
"Farewell Beauty, farewell Beast," answered he, and immediately the monster withdrew. "Oh, daughter," said the merchant, embracing Beauty, "I am almost frightened to death, believe me, you had better go back, and let me stay here."
"No, father," said Beauty, in a resolute tone, "you shall set out tomorrow morning, and leave me to the care and protection of providence." They went to bed, and thought they should not close their eyes all night; but scarce were they laid down, than they fell fast asleep, and Beauty dreamed, a fine lady came, and said to her, "I am content, Beauty, with your good will, this good action of yours in giving up your own life to save your father's shall not go unrewarded." Beauty waked, and told her father her dream, and though it helped to comfort him a little, yet he could not help crying bitterly, when he took leave of his dear child.
As soon as he was gone, Beauty sat down in the great hall, and fell a crying likewise; but as she was mistress of a great deal of resolution, she recommended herself to God, and resolved not to be uneasy the little time she had to live; for she firmly believed Beast would eat her up that night.
However, she thought she might as well walk about until then, and view this fine castle, which she could not help admiring; it was a delightful pleasant place, and she was extremely surprised at seeing a door, over which was written, "Beauty's Apartment." She opened it hastily, and was quite dazzled with the magnificence that reigned throughout; but what chiefly took up her attention, was a large library, a harpsichord, and several music books. "Well," said she to herself, "I see they will not let my time hang heavy upon my hands for want of amusement." Then she reflected, "Were I but to stay here a day, there would not have been all these preparations." This consideration inspired her with fresh courage; and opening the library she took a book, and read these words, in letters of gold:
Welcome Beauty, banish fear,
You are queen and mistress here.
Speak your wishes, speak your will,
Swift obedience meets them still.
"Alas," said she, with a sigh, "there is nothing I desire so much as to see my poor father, and know what he is doing." She had no sooner said this, when casting her eyes on a great looking glass, to her great amazement, she saw her own home, where her father arrived with a very dejected countenance. Her sisters went to meet him, and notwithstanding their endeavors to appear sorrowful, their joy, felt for having got rid of their sister, was visible in every feature. A moment after, everything disappeared, and Beauty's apprehensions at this proof of Beast's complaisance.
At noon she found dinner ready, and while at table, was entertained with an excellent concert of music, though without seeing anybody. But at night, as she was going to sit down to supper, she heard the noise Beast made, and could not help being sadly terrified. "Beauty," said the monster, "will you give me leave to see you sup?"
"That is as you please," answered Beauty trembling.
"No," replied the Beast, "you alone are mistress here; you need only bid me gone, if my presence is troublesome, and I will immediately withdraw. But, tell me, do not you think me very ugly?"
"That is true," said Beauty, "for I cannot tell a lie, but I believe you are very good natured."
"So I am," said the monster, "but then, besides my ugliness, I have no sense; I know very well, that I am a poor, silly, stupid creature."
"'Tis no sign of folly to think so," replied Beauty, "for never did fool know this, or had so humble a conceit of his own understanding."
"Eat then, Beauty," said the monster, "and endeavor to amuse yourself in your palace, for everything here is yours, and I should be very uneasy, if you were not happy."
"You are very obliging," answered Beauty, "I own I am pleased with your kindness, and when I consider that, your deformity scarce appears."
"Yes, yes," said the Beast, "my heart is good, but still I am a monster."
"Among mankind," says Beauty, "there are many that deserve that name more than you, and I prefer you, just as you are, to those, who, under a human form, hide a treacherous, corrupt, and ungrateful heart."
"If I had sense enough," replied the Beast, "I would make a fine compliment to thank you, but I am so dull, that I can only say, I am greatly obliged to you."
Beauty ate a hearty supper, and had almost conquered her dread of the monster; but she had like to have fainted away, when he said to her, "Beauty, will you be my wife?"
She was some time before she dared answer, for she was afraid of making him angry, if she refused. At last, however, she said trembling, "no Beast." Immediately the poor monster went to sigh, and hissed so frightfully, that the whole palace echoed. But Beauty soon recovered her fright, for Beast having said, in a mournful voice, "then farewell, Beauty," left the room; and only turned back, now and then, to look at her as he went out.
When Beauty was alone, she felt a great deal of compassion for poor Beast. "Alas," said she, "'tis thousand pities, anything so good natured should be so ugly."
Beauty spent three months very contentedly in the palace. Every evening Beast paid her a visit, and talked to her, during supper, very rationally, with plain good common sense, but never with what the world calls wit; and Beauty daily discovered some valuable qualifications in the monster, and seeing him often had so accustomed her to his deformity, that, far from dreading the time of his visit, she would often look on her watch to see when it would be nine, for the Beast never missed coming at that hour. There was but one thing that gave Beauty any concern, which was, that every night, before she went to bed, the monster always asked her, if she would be his wife. One day she said to him, "Beast, you make me very uneasy, I wish I could consent to marry you, but I am too sincere to make you believe that will ever happen; I shall always esteem you as a friend, endeavor to be satisfied with this."
"I must," said the Beast, "for, alas! I know too well my own misfortune, but then I love you with the tenderest affection. However, I ought to think myself happy, that you will stay here; promise me never to leave me."
Beauty blushed at these words; she had seen in her glass, that her father had pined himself sick for the loss of her, and she longed to see him again. "I could," answered she, "indeed, promise never to leave you entirely, but I have so great a desire to see my father, that I shall fret to death, if you refuse me that satisfaction."
"I had rather die myself," said the monster, "than give you the least uneasiness. I will send you to your father, you shall remain with him, and poor Beast will die with grief."
"No," said Beauty, weeping, "I love you too well to be the cause of your death. I give you my promise to return in a week. You have shown me that my sisters are married, and my brothers gone to the army; only let me stay a week with my father, as he is alone."
"You shall be there tomorrow morning," said the Beast, "but remember your promise. You need only lay your ring on a table before you go to bed, when you have a mind to come back. Farewell Beauty." Beast sighed, as usual, bidding her good night, and Beauty went to bed very sad at seeing him so afflicted. When she waked the next morning, she found herself at her father's, and having rung a little bell, that was by her bedside, she saw the maid come, who, the moment she saw her, gave a loud shriek, at which the good man ran up stairs, and thought he should have died with joy to see his dear daughter again. He held her fast locked in his arms above a quarter of an hour. As soon as the first transports were over, Beauty began to think of rising, and was afraid she had no clothes to put on; but the maid told her, that she had just found, in the next room, a large trunk full of gowns, covered with gold and diamonds. Beauty thanked good Beast for his kind care, and taking one of the plainest of them, she intended to make a present of the others to her sisters. She scarce had said so when the trunk disappeared. Her father told her, that Beast insisted on her keeping them herself, and immediately both gowns and trunk came back again.
Beauty dressed herself, and in the meantime they sent to her sisters who hastened thither with their husbands. They were both of them very unhappy. The eldest had married a gentleman, extremely handsome indeed, but so fond of his own person, that he was full of nothing but his own dear self, and neglected his wife. The second had married a man of wit, but he only made use of it to plague and torment everybody, and his wife most of all. Beauty's sisters sickened with envy, when they saw her dressed like a princess, and more beautiful than ever, nor could all her obliging affectionate behavior stifle their jealousy, which was ready to burst when she told them how happy she was. They went down into the garden to vent it in tears; and said one to the other, in what way is this little creature better than us, that she should be so much happier? "Sister," said the oldest, "a thought just strikes my mind; let us endeavor to detain her above a week, and perhaps the silly monster will be so enraged at her for breaking her word, that he will devour her."
"Right, sister," answered the other, "therefore we must show her as much kindness as possible." After they had taken this resolution, they went up, and behaved so affectionately to their sister, that poor Beauty wept for joy. When the week was expired, they cried and tore their hair, and seemed so sorry to part with her, that she promised to stay a week longer.
In the meantime, Beauty could not help reflecting on herself, for the uneasiness she was likely to cause poor Beast, whom she sincerely loved, and really longed to see again. The tenth night she spent at her father's, she dreamed she was in the palace garden, and that she saw Beast extended on the grass plat, who seemed just expiring, and, in a dying voice, reproached her with her ingratitude. Beauty started out of her sleep, and bursting into tears. "Am I not very wicked," said she, "to act so unkindly to Beast, that has studied so much, to please me in everything? Is it his fault if he is so ugly, and has so little sense? He is kind and good, and that is sufficient. Why did I refuse to marry him? I should be happier with the monster than my sisters are with their husbands; it is neither wit, nor a fine person, in a husband, that makes a woman happy, but virtue, sweetness of temper, and complaisance, and Beast has all these valuable qualifications. It is true, I do not feel the tenderness of affection for him, but I find I have the highest gratitude, esteem, and friendship; I will not make him miserable, were I to be so ungrateful I should never forgive myself." Beauty having said this, rose, put her ring on the table, and then laid down again; scarce was she in bed before she fell asleep, and when she waked the next morning, she was overjoyed to find herself in the Beast's palace.
She put on one of her richest suits to please him, and waited for evening with the utmost impatience, at last the wished-for hour came, the clock struck nine, yet no Beast appeared. Beauty then feared she had been the cause of his death; she ran crying and wringing her hands all about the palace, like one in despair; after having sought for him everywhere, she recollected her dream, and flew to the canal in the garden, where she dreamed she saw him. There she found poor Beast stretched out, quite senseless, and, as she imagined, dead. She threw herself upon him without any dread, and finding his heart beat still, she fetched some water from the canal, and poured it on his head. Beast opened his eyes, and said to Beauty, "You forgot your promise, and I was so afflicted for having lost you, that I resolved to starve myself, but since I have the happiness of seeing you once more, I die satisfied."
"No, dear Beast," said Beauty, "you must not die. Live to be my husband; from this moment I give you my hand, and swear to be none but yours. Alas! I thought I had only a friendship for you, but the grief I now feel convinces me, that I cannot live without you." Beauty scarce had pronounced these words, when she saw the palace sparkle with light; and fireworks, instruments of music, everything seemed to give notice of some great event. But nothing could fix her attention; she turned to her dear Beast, for whom she trembled with fear; but how great was her surprise! Beast was disappeared, and she saw, at her feet, one of the loveliest princes that eye ever beheld; who returned her thanks for having put an end to the charm, under which he had so long resembled a Beast. Though this prince was worthy of all her attention, she could not forbear asking where Beast was.
"You see him at your feet, said the prince. A wicked fairy had condemned me to remain under that shape until a beautiful virgin should consent to marry me. The fairy likewise enjoined me to conceal my understanding. There was only you in the world generous enough to be won by the goodness of my temper, and in offering you my crown I can't discharge the obligations I have to you."
Beauty, agreeably surprised, gave the charming prince her hand to rise; they went together into the castle, and Beauty was overjoyed to find, in the great hall, her father and his whole family, whom the beautiful lady, that appeared to her in her dream, had conveyed thither.
"Beauty," said this lady, "come and receive the reward of your judicious choice; you have preferred virtue before either wit or beauty, and deserve to find a person in whom all these qualifications are united. You are going to be a great queen. I hope the throne will not lessen your virtue, or make you forget yourself. As to you, ladies," said the fairy to Beauty's two sisters, "I know your hearts, and all the malice they contain. Become two statues, but, under this transformation, still retain your reason. You shall stand before your sister's palace gate, and be it your punishment to behold her happiness; and it will not be in your power to return to your former state, until you own your faults, but I am very much afraid that you will always remain statues. Pride, anger, gluttony, and idleness are sometimes conquered, but the conversion of a malicious and envious mind is a kind of miracle."

RAPUNZEL


An elderly witch named Gothel witnesses a single drop of pure sunlight hit the ground, creating a magical flower with the ability to heal the sick and hurt, and she uses it to keep herself young when she sings to it. Years later, the queen of a nearby kingdom falls ill while expecting a child. Her guards, searching for a cure, find the mysterious flower. They make a broth out of the flower, which heals the queen and she gives birth to a girl named Rapunzel. Gothel learns that Rapunzel's golden hair retains the flower's healing abilities as long as it isn't cut, so she kidnaps the child and isolates her in a tower, raising the girl as her own daughter. However, every year on Rapunzel's birthday, the kingdom sends thousands of floating lanterns into the sky longing for their lost princess to return. Eighteen years later, Rapunzel lives in the tower with her pet chameleon, Pascal. While happy to be safe in her tower, she yearns to see the outside world. ("When Will My Life Begin?") Rapunzel asks Gothel to let her see the floating lights on her birthday, but Gothel denies her request, saying the world is full of people who would covet her abilities for themselves. ("Mother Knows Best") Meanwhile, thieves led by Flynn Rider, steal the tiara of the missing princess from the castle. Flynn abandons his accomplices and stumbles upon Rapunzel's tower, choosing it as a hideout. During the chase, the lead guard's horse, Maximus, is separated from his rider and continues the search for Flynn on his own. Once inside the tower, Flynn is knocked unconscious by Rapunzel, who then hides him in a wardrobeRapunzel tells Gothel that she wants a special paint for her birthday. Gothel agrees, and after she leaves, Rapunzel makes a deal with Flynn — if he escorts her to the lights and back, she will return the tiara. While Rapunzel is excited to be free, she is soon conflicted between her freedom and her guilt of disobedience. While traveling, the two visit the Snuggly Duckling Tavern, which appears to be full of thugs like Gothel warned Rapunzel about, but they all each have their own dreams, just as Rapunzel does. ("I've Got A Dream") As the royal guards continue their search, Gothel learns of the pursuit, returns to the tower and finds Rapunzel gone. The tavern regulars help the pair escape from the guards, but they eventually corner Flynn at a man-made dam, which Maximus inadvertently causes to collapse. Trapped in a flooding cave Flynn cuts his hand while trying to save them but does not succeed, and thinking they are going to die, Flynn tells her that someone should know that his real name is Eugene Fitzherbert, and Rapunzel reveals her powers to Flynn, and Her hair glows and it enables them to escape safely, and later around a campfire Flynn reveals his reason for being a thief. They look into each others eyes for a few brief seconds and fall in love. While Flynn gathers firewood, Gothel secretly meets with Rapunzel, who tells Gothel she has feelings for Flynn. ("Mother Knows Best" reprise.) Gothel tells Rapunzel that Flynn is only after the tiara, claiming that he will leave once he has it. The next morning, Maximus confronts Flynn again, but Rapunzel befriends the horse and the group travels together to the royal kingdom. That night, Rapunzel tells Flynn that she is scared that her dream may not be as great as she expected, Flynn gently tells that it will be fine. The lanterns rise and then Flynn gives Rapunzel a lantern and in return she gives him his satchel. He tosses it aside and tells Rapunzel he no longer wants it. Flynn takes Rapunzel's hand and gently touches her cheek ("I See The Light"). He attempts to kiss her but seeing his former accomplices, Flynn trys to give them the tiara, but the pair are now working with Gothel. They make it appear that Flynn is escaping with the tiara, and Gothel, betraying the thieves, "rescues" the heartbroken Rapunzel and takes her back to the tower. Flynn, sentenced to be hanged for his crimes, learns of the treachery from the captured henchmen. The Snuggly Duckling regulars rescue Flynn and deliver him to Maximus, who takes him to the tower to find Rapunzel. Meanwhile, Rapunzel realizes that she is actually the long-lost princess, and confronts Gothel with the revelation saying she will never let her use her hair again, infuriating Gothel. Flynn reaches the tower, but upon entering, he sees Rapunzel bound and gagged and is stabbed by Gothel. Rapunzel pledges to remain with Gothel forever if she can heal Flynn's wounds. Gothel agrees, but before Rapunzel can heal him, Flynn, saying that he would rather die than have her trapped forever, cuts off her long hair, destroying its healing power. Gothel screams in horror as her true age begins to catch up to her, and as she writhes, she trips on Rapunzel's hair and falls out of the tower window, turning to dust before she hits the ground. Flynn and Rapunzel reveal their love for each other, then Flynn dies from his wounds. Heartbroken, she starts to cry and sing, then a magic tear lands on Flynn's cheek and brings him back to life. Surprised and overjoyed, Rapunzel pulls Flynn forward for a kiss. The group returns to the castle, where the royal family is reunited at last. Flynn is pulled into the embrace, and after a celebration of Rapunzel's return, Flynn and Rapunzel are married, and they live happily ever after as the pub thugs fulfill their individual aspirations, and Maximus becomes a respected official on the Royal Guard.

Aku mencintai suamiku


Pernikahan kami sederhana namun meriah….. Ia menjadi pria yang sangat romantis pada waktu itu.
Aku bersyukur menikah dengan seorang pria yang shaleh, pintar, tampan & mapan pula. Ketika kami berpacaran dia sudah sukses dalam karirnya.

Kami akan berbulan madu di tanah suci, itu janjinya ketika kami berpacaran dulu.. Dan setelah menikah, aku mengajaknya untuk umroh ke tanah suci….

Aku sangat bahagia dengannya, dan dianya juga sangat memanjakan aku… sangat terlihat dari rasa cinta dan rasa sayangnya pada ku. Banyak orang yang bilang kami adalah pasangan yang serasi. Sangat terlihat sekali bagaimana suamiku memanjakanku. Dan aku bahagia menikah dengannya.

Lima tahun berlalu sudah kami menjadi suami istri, sangat tak terasa waktu begitu cepat berjalan walaupun kami hanya hidup berdua saja karena sampai saat ini aku belum bisa memberikannya seorang malaikat kecil (bayi) di tengah keharmonisan rumah tangga kami. Karena dia anak lelaki satu-satunya dalam keluarganya, jadi aku harus berusaha untuk mendapatkan penerus generasi baginya.

Alhamdulillah saat itu suamiku mendukungku… Ia mengaggap Allah belum mempercayai kami untuk menjaga titipan-NYA. Tapi keluarganya mulai resah. Dari awal kami menikah, ibu & adiknya tidak menyukaiku. Aku sering mendapat perlakuan yang tidak menyenangkan dari mereka, namun aku selalu berusaha menutupi hal itu dari suamiku…

Didepan suami ku mereka berlaku sangat baik padaku, tapi dibelakang suami ku, aku dihina-hina oleh mereka Pernah suatu ketika satu tahun usia pernikahan kami, suamiku mengalami kecelakaan, mobilnya hancur. Alhamdulillah suami ku selamat dari maut yang hampir membuat ku menjadi seorang janda itu.

Ia dirawat dirumah sakit pada saat dia belum sadarkan diri setelah kecelakaan. Aku selalu menemaninya siang & malam sambil kubacakan ayat-ayat suci Al – Qur’an. Aku sibuk bolak-balik dari rumah sakit dan dari tempat aku melakukan aktivitas sosial ku, aku sibuk mengurus suamiku yang sakit karena kecelakaan.

Namun saat ketika aku kembali ke rumah sakit setelah dari rumah kami, aku melihat di dalam kamarnya ada ibu, adik-adiknya dan teman-teman suamiku, dan disaat itu juga.. aku melihat ada seorang wanita yang sangat akrab mengobrol dengan ibu mertuaku. Mereka tertawa menghibur suamiku.

Alhamdulillah suamiku ternyata sudah sadar, aku menangis ketika melihat suami ku sudah sadar, tapi aku tak boleh sedih di hadapannya.

Kubuka pintu yang tertutup rapat itu sambil mengatakan, “Assalammu’alaikum” dan mereka menjawab salam ku. Aku berdiam sejenak di depan pintu dan mereka semua melihatku. Suamiku menatapku penuh manja, mungkin ia kangen padaku karena sudah 5 hari mata nya selalu tertutup.

Tangannya melambai, mengisyaratkan aku untuk memegang tangannya erat. Setelah aku menghampirinya, kucium tangannya sambil berkata “Assalammu’alaikum”, ia pun menjawab salam ku dengan suaranya yg lirih namun penuh dengan cinta. Aku pun senyum melihat wajahnya.

Lalu.. Ibu nya berbicara denganku …

“Fis, kenalkan ini Desi teman Fikri”.

Aku teringat cerita dari suamiku bahwa teman baiknya pernah mencintainya, perempuan itu bernama Desi dan dia sangat akrab dengan keluarga suamiku. Hingga akhirnya aku bertemu dengan orangnya juga. Aku pun langsung berjabat tangan dengannya, tak banyak aku bicara di dalam ruangan tersebut,aku tak mengerti apa yg mereka bicarakan.

Aku sibuk membersihkan & mengobati luka-luka di kepala suamiku, baru sebentar aku membersihkan mukanya, tiba-tiba adik ipar ku yang bernama Dian mengajakku keluar, ia minta ditemani ke kantin. Dan suamiku pun mengijinkannya. Kemudian aku pun menemaninya.

Tapi ketika di luar adik ipar ku berkata, ”lebih baik kau pulang saja, ada

kami yg menjaga abang disini. Kau istirahat saja. ”

Anehnya, aku tak diperbolehkan berpamitan dengan suamiku dengan alasan abang harus banyak beristirahat dan karena psikologisnya masih labil. Aku berdebat dengannya mempertanyakan mengapa aku tidak diizinkan berpamitan dengan suamiku. Tapi tiba-tiba ibu mertuaku datang menghampiriku dan ia juga mengatakan hal yang sama. Nantinya dia akan memberi alasan pada suamiku mengapa aku pulang tak berpamitan padanya, toh suamiku selalu menurut apa kata ibunya, baik ibunya Salah ataupun Tidak, suamiku tetap saja membenarkannya. Akhirnya aku pun pergi meninggalkan rumah sakit itu dengan linangan air mata.

Sejak saat itu aku tidak pernah diijinkan menjenguk suamiku sampai ia kembali dari rumah sakit. Dan aku hanya bisa menangis dalam kesendirianku. Menangis mengapa mereka sangat membenciku.

***

Hari itu.. aku menangis tanpa sebab, yang ada di benakku aku takut kehilangannya, aku takut cintanya dibagi dengan yang lain.

Pagi itu, pada saat aku membersihkan pekarangan rumah kami, suamiku memanggil ku ke taman belakang, ia baru saja selesai sarapan, ia mengajakku duduk di ayunan favorit kami sambil melihat ikan-ikan yang bertaburan di kolam air mancur itu.

Aku bertanya, ”Ada apa kamu memanggilku?”

Ia berkata, ”Besok aku akan menjenguk keluargaku di Sabang”

Aku menjawab, ”Ia sayang.. aku tahu, aku sudah mengemasi barang-barang kamu di travel bag dan kamu sudah memeegang tiket bukan?”

“Ya tapi aku tak akan lama disana, cuma 3 minggu aku disana, aku juga sudah lama tidak bertemu dengan keluarga besarku sejak kita menikah dan aku akan pulang dengan mama ku”, jawabnya tegas.

“Mengapa baru sekarang bicara, aku pikir hanya seminggu saja kamu disana?“, tanya ku balik kepadanya penuh dengan rasa penasaran dan sedikit rasa kecewa karena ia baru memberitahukan rencana kepulanggannya itu, padahal aku telah bersusah payah mencarikan tiket pesawat untuknya.

”Mama minta aku yang menemaninya saat pulang nanti”, jawabnya tegas.

”Sekarang aku ingin seharian dengan kamu karena nanti kita 3 minggu tidak bertemu, ya kan?”, lanjut nya lagi sambil memelukku dan mencium keningku. Hatiku sedih dengan keputusannya, tapi tak boleh aku tunjukkan pada nya.

Bahagianya aku dimanja dengan suami yang penuh dengan rasa sayang & cintanya walau terkadang ia bersikap kurang adil terhadapku.

Aku hanya bisa tersenyum saja, padahal aku ingin bersama Suamiku, tapi karena keluarganya tidak menyukaiku hanya karena mereka cemburu padaku karena Suamiku sangat sayang padaku.

Kemudian aku memutuskan agar ia saja yg pergi dan kami juga harus berhemat dalam pengeluaran anggaran rumah tangga kami.

Karena ini acara sakral bagi keluarganya, jadi seluruh keluarganya harus komplit. Walaupun begitu, aku pun tetap tak akan diperdulikan oleh keluarganya harus datang ataupun tidak. Tidak hadir justru membuat mereka sangat senang dan aku pun tak mau membuat riuh keluarga ini.

Malam sebelum kepergiannya, aku menangis sambil membereskan keperluan yang akan dibawanya ke Sabang, ia menatapku dan menghapus airmata yang jatuh dipipiku, lalu aku peluk erat dirinya. Hati ini bergumam tak merelakan dia pergi seakan terjadi sesuatu, tapi aku tidak tahu apa yang akan terjadi. Aku hanya bisa menangis karena akan ditinggal pergi olehnya.

Aku tidak pernah ditinggal pergi selama ini, karena kami selalu bersama-sama kemana pun ia pergi.

Apa mungkin aku sedih karena aku sendirian dan tidak memiliki teman, karena biasanya hanya pembantu sajalah teman mengobrolku.

Hati ini sedih akan di tinggal pergi olehnya.

Sampai keesokan harinya, aku terus menangis.. menangisi kepergiannya. Aku tak tahu mengapa sesedih ini, perasaanku tak enak, tapi aku tak boleh berburuk sangka. Aku harus percaya apada suamiku. Dia pasti akan selalu menelponku.
Berjauhan dengan suamiku, aku merasa sangat tidak nyaman, aku merasa sendiri. Untunglah aku mempunyai kesibukan sebagai seorang aktivis, jadinya aku tak terlalu kesepian ditinggal pergi ke Sabang.

Saat kami berhubungan jarak jauh, komunikasi kami memburuk dan aku pun jatuh sakit. Rahimku terasa sakit sekali seperti di lilit oleh tali. Tak tahan aku menahan rasa sakit dirahimku ini, sampai-sampai aku mengalami pendarahan. Aku dilarikan ke rumah sakit oleh adik laki-lakiku yang kebetulan menemaniku disana. Dokter memvonis aku terkena kanker mulut rahim stadium 3.

Aku menangis.. apa yang bisa aku banggakan lagi..

Mertuaku akan semakin menghinaku, suamiku yang malang yang selalu berharap akan punya keturunan dari rahimku.. namun aku tak bisa memberikannya keturunan. Dan kemudian aku hanya bisa memeluk adikku.

Aku kangen pada suamiku, aku selalu menunggu ia pulang dan bertanya-tanya, “kapankah ia segera pulang?” aku tak tahu..

Sementara suamiku disana, aku tidak tahu mengapa ia selalu marah-marah jika menelponku. Bagaimana aku akan menceritakan kondisiku jika ia selalu marah-marah terhadapku..

Lebih baik aku tutupi dulu tentang hal ini dan aku juga tak mau membuatnya khawatir selama ia berada di Sabang.

Lebih baik nanti saja ketika ia sudah pulang dari Sabang, aku akan cerita padanya. Setiap hari aku menanti suamiku pulang, hari demi hari aku hitung…

Sudah 3 minggu suamiku di Sabang, malam itu ketika aku sedang melihat foto-foto kami, ponselku berbunyi menandakan ada sms yang masuk.

Kubuka di inbox ponselku, ternyata dari suamiku yang sms.

Ia menulis, “aku sudah beli tiket untuk pulang, aku pulangnya satu hari lagi, aku akan kabarin lagi”.

Hanya itu saja yang diinfokannya. Aku ingin marah, tapi aku pendam saja ego yang tidak baik ini. Hari yg aku tunggu pun tiba, aku menantinya di rumah.

Sebagai seorang istri, aku pun berdandan yang cantik dan memakai parfum kesukaannya untuk menyambut suamiku pulang, dan nantinya aku juga akan menyelesaikan masalah komunikasi kami yg buruk akhir-akhir ini.

Bel pun berbunyi, kubukakan pintu untuknya dan ia pun mengucap salam. Sebelum masuk, aku pegang tangannya kedepan teras namun ia tetap berdiri, aku membungkuk untuk melepaskan sepatu, kaos kaki dan kucuci kedua kakinya, aku tak mau ada syaithan yang masuk ke dalam rumah kami.

Setelah itu akupun berdiri langsung mencium tangannya tapi apa reaksinya..

Masya Allah.. ia tidak mencium keningku, ia hanya diam dan langsung naik keruangan atas, kemudian mandi dan tidur tanpa bertanya kabarku..

Aku hanya berpikir, mungkin dia capek. Aku pun segera merapikan bawaan nya sampai aku pun tertidur. Malam menunjukkan 1/3 malam, mengingatkan aku pada tempat mengadu yaitu Allah, Sang Maha Pencipta.

Biasa nya kami selalu berjama’ah, tapi karena melihat nya tidur sangat pulas, aku tak tega membangunkannya. Aku hanya mengelus wajahnya dan aku cium keningnya, lalu aku sholat tahajud 8 rakaat plus witir 3 raka’at.

***

Aku mendengar suara mobilnya, aku terbangun lalu aku melihat dirinya dari balkon kamar kami yang bersiap-siap untuk pergi. Lalu aku memanggilnya tapi ia tak mendengar. Kemudian aku ambil jilbabku dan aku berlari dari atas ke bawah tanpa memperdulikan darah yg bercecer dari rahimku untuk mengejarnya tapi ia begitu cepat pergi.

Aku merasa ada yang aneh dengan suamiku. Ada apa dengan suamiku? Mengapa ia bersikap tidak biasa terhadapku?

Aku tidak bisa diam begitu saja, firasatku mengatakan ada sesuatu. Saat itu juga aku langsung menelpon kerumah mertuaku dan kebetulan Dian yang mengangkat telponnya, aku bercerita dan aku bertanya apa yang sedang terjadi dengan suamiku. Dengan enteng ia menjawab, “Loe pikir aja sendiri!!!”. Telpon pun langsung terputus.

Ada apa ini? Tanya hatiku penuh dalam kecemasan. Mengapa suamiku berubah setelah ia kembali dari kota kelahirannya. Mengapa ia tak mau berbicara padaku, apalagi memanjakan aku.

Semakin hari ia menjadi orang yang pendiam, seakan ia telah melepas tanggung jawabnya sebagai seorang suami. Kami hanya berbicara seperlunya saja, aku selalu diintrogasinya. Selalu bertanya aku dari mana dan mengapa pulang terlambat dan ia bertanya dengan nada yg keras. Suamiku telah berubah..

Bahkan yang membuat ku kaget, aku pernah dituduhnya berzina dengan mantan pacarku. Ingin rasanya aku menampar suamiku yang telah menuduhku serendah itu, tapi aku selalu ingat.. sebagaimana pun salahnya seorang suami, status suami tetap di atas para istri, itu pedoman yang aku pegang.

Aku hanya berdo’a semoga suamiku sadar akan prilakunya.
Dua tahun berlalu, suamiku tak kunjung berubah juga. Aku menangis setiap malam, lelah menanti seperti ini, kami seperti orang asing yang baru saja berkenalan.

Kemesraan yang kami ciptakan dulu telah sirna. Walaupun kondisinya tetap seperti itu, aku tetap merawatnya & menyiakan segala yang ia perlukan. Penyakitkupun masih aku simpan dengan baik dan sekalipun ia tak pernah bertanya perihal obat apa yang aku minum. Kebahagiaan ku telah sirna, harapan menjadi ibu pun telah aku pendam. Aku tak tahu kapan ini semua akan berakhir.

Bersyukurlah.. aku punya penghasilan sendiri dari aktifitasku sebagai seorang guru ngaji, jadi aku tak perlu meminta uang padanya hanya untuk pengobatan kankerku. Aku pun hanya berobat semampuku.

Sungguh.. suami yang dulu aku puja dan aku banggakan, sekarang telah menjadi orang asing bagiku, setiap aku bertanya ia selalu menyuruhku untuk berpikir sendiri. Tiba-tiba saja malam itu setelah makan malam usai, suamiku memanggilku.

“Ya, ada apa Yah!” sahutku dengan memanggil nama kesayangannya “Ayah”.

“Lusa kita siap-siap ke Sabang ya.” Jawabnya tegas.

“Ada apa? Mengapa?”, sahutku penuh dengan keheranan.

Astaghfirullah.. suami ku yang dulu lembut tiba-tiba saja menjadi kasar, dia membentakku. Sehingga tak ada lagi kelanjutan diskusi antara kami.

Dia mengatakan ”Kau ikut saja jangan banyak tanya!!”

Lalu aku pun bersegera mengemasi barang-barang yang akan dibawa ke Sabang sambil menangis, sedih karena suamiku kini tak ku kenal lagi.

Lima tahun kami menikah dan sudah 2 tahun pula ia menjadi orang asing buatku. Ku lihat kamar kami yg dulu hangat penuh cinta yang dihiasi foto pernikahan kami, sekarang menjadi dingin.. sangat dingin dari batu es. Aku menangis dengan kebingungan ini. Ingin rasanya aku berontak berteriak, tapi aku tak bisa.

Suamiku tak suka dengan wanita yang kasar, ngomong dengan nada tinggi, suka membanting barang-barang. Dia bilang perbuatan itu menunjukkan sikap ketidakhormatan kepadanya. Aku hanya bisa bersabar menantinya bicara dan sabar mengobati penyakitku ini, dalam kesendirianku..

***

Kami telah sampai di Sabang, aku masih merasa lelah karena semalaman aku tidak tidur karena terus berpikir. Keluarga besarnya juga telah berkumpul disana, termasuk ibu & adik-adiknya. Aku tidak tahu ada acara apa ini..

Aku dan suamiku pun masuk ke kamar kami. Suamiku tak betah didalam kamar tua itu, ia pun langsung keluar bergabung dengan keluarga besarnya.

Baru saja aku membongkar koper kami dan ingin memasukkannya ke dalam lemari tua yg berada di dekat pintu kamar, lemari tua yang telah ada sebelum suamiku lahir, tiba-tiba Tante Lia, tante yang sangat baik padaku memanggil ku untuk bersegera berkumpul diruang tengah, aku pun menuju ke ruang keluarga yang berada ditengah rumah besar itu, yang tampak seperti rumah zaman peninggalan belanda.

Kemudian aku duduk disamping suamiku, dan suamiku menunduk penuh dengan kebisuan, aku tak berani bertanya padanya.

Tiba-tiba saja neneknya, orang yang dianggap paling tua dan paling berhak atas semuanya, membuka pembicaraan.

“Baiklah, karena kalian telah berkumpul, nenek ingin bicara dengan kau Fisha”. Neneknya berbicara sangat tegas, dengan sorot mata yang tajam.

”Ada apa ya Nek?” sahutku dengan penuh tanya..

Nenek pun menjawab, “Kau telah bergabung dengan keluarga kami hampir 8 tahun, sampai saat ini kami tak melihat tanda-tanda kehamilan yang sempurna sebab selama ini kau selalu keguguran!!“.

Aku menangis.. untuk inikah aku diundang kemari? Untuk dihina ataukah dipisahkan dengan suamiku?

“Sebenarnya kami sudah punya calon untuk Fikri, dari dulu.. sebelum kau menikah dengannya. Tapi Fikri anak yang keras kepala, tak mau di atur,dan akhirnya menikahlah ia dengan kau.” Neneknya berbicara sangat lantang, mungkin logat orang Sabang seperti itu semua.

Aku hanya bisa tersenyum dan melihat wajah suamiku yang kosong matanya.

“Dan aku dengar dari ibu mertuamu kau pun sudah berkenalan dengannya”, neneknya masih melanjutkan pembicaraan itu.

Sedangkan suamiku hanya terdiam saja, tapi aku lihat air matanya. Ingin aku peluk suamiku agar ia kuat dengan semua ini, tapi aku tak punya keberanian itu.

Neneknya masih saja berbicara panjang lebar dan yang terakhir dari ucapannya dengan mimik wajah yang sangat menantang kemudian berkata, “kau maunya gimana? kau dimadu atau diceraikan?“

MasyaAllah.. kuatkan hati ini.. aku ingin jatuh pingsan. Hati ini seakan remuk mendengarnya, hancur hatiku. Mengapa keluarganya bersikap seperti ini terhadapku..

Aku selalu munutupi masalah ini dari kedua orang tuaku yang tinggal di pulau

kayu, mereka mengira aku sangat bahagia 2 tahun belakangan ini.

“Fish, jawab!.” Dengan tegas Ibunya langsung memintaku untuk menjawab.

Aku langsung memegang tangan suamiku. Dengan tangan yang dingin dan gemetar aku menjawab dengan tegas.

Walaupun aku tidak bisa berdiskusi dulu dengan imamku, tapi aku dapat berdiskusi dengannya melalui bathiniah.

‘’Untuk kebaikan dan masa depan keluarga ini, aku akan menyambut baik seorang wanita baru dirumah kami..”

Itu yang aku jawab, dengan kata lain aku rela cintaku dibagi. Dan pada saat itu juga suamiku memandangku dengan tetesan air mata, tapi air mataku tak sedikit pun menetes di hadapan mereka.

Aku lalu bertanya kepada suamiku, “Ayah siapakah yang akan menjadi sahabatku dirumah kita nanti, yah?”

Suamiku menjawab, ”Dia Desi!”

Aku pun langsung menarik napas dan langsung berbicara, ”Kapan pernikahannya berlangsung? Apa yang harus saya siapkan dalam pernikahan ini Nek?.”

Ayah mertuaku menjawab, “Pernikahannya 2 minggu lagi.”

”Baiklah kalo begitu saya akan menelpon pembantu di rumah, untuk menyuruhnya mengurus KK kami ke kelurahan besok”, setelah berbicara seperti itu aku permisi untuk pamit ke kamar.

Tak tahan lagi.. air mata ini akan turun, aku berjalan sangat cepat, aku buka pintu kamar dan aku langsung duduk di tempat tidur. Ingin berteriak, tapi aku sendiri disini. Tak kuat rasanya menerima hal ini, cintaku telah dibagi. Sakit. Diiringi akutnya penyakitku..

Apakah karena ini suamiku menjadi orang yang asing selama 2 tahun belakangan ini?

Aku berjalan menuju ke meja rias, kubuka jilbabku, aku bercermin sambil bertanya-tanya, “sudah tidak cantikkah aku ini?“

Ku ambil sisirku, aku menyisiri rambutku yang setiap hari rontok. Kulihat wajahku, ternyata aku memang sudah tidak cantik lagi, rambutku sudah hampir habis.. kepalaku sudah botak dibagian tengahnya.

Tiba-tiba pintu kamar ini terbuka, ternyata suamiku yang datang, ia berdiri dibelakangku. Tak kuhapus air mata ini, aku bersegera memandangnya dari cermin meja rias itu.

Kami diam sejenak, lalu aku mulai pembicaraan, “terima kasih ayah, kamu memberi sahabat kepada ku. Jadi aku tak perlu sedih lagi saat ditinggal pergi kamu nanti! Iya kan?.”

Suamiku mengangguk sambil melihat kepalaku tapi tak sedikitpun ia tersenyum dan bertanya kenapa rambutku rontok, dia hanya mengatakan jangan salah memakai shampo.

Dalam hatiku bertanya, “mengapa ia sangat cuek?” dan ia sudah tak memanjakanku lagi. Lalu dia berkata, “sudah malam, kita istirahat yuk!“

“Aku sholat isya dulu baru aku tidur”, jawabku tenang.

Dalam sholat dan dalam tidur aku menangis. Ku hitung mundur waktu, kapan aku akan berbagi suami dengannya. Aku pun ikut sibuk mengurusi pernikahan suamiku.

Aku tak tahu kalau Desi orang Sabang juga. Sudahlah, ini mungkin takdirku. Aku ingin suamiku kembali seperti dulu, yang sangat memanjakan aku atas rasa sayang dan cintanya itu..
Malam sebelum hari pernikahan suamiku, aku menulis curahan hatiku di laptopku.

Di laptop aku menulis saat-saat terakhirku melihat suamiku, aku marah pada suamiku yang telah menelantarkanku. Aku menangis melihat suamiku yang sedang tidur pulas, apa salahku? sampai ia berlaku sekejam itu kepadaku. Aku

save di mydocument yang bertitle “Aku Mencintaimu Suamiku.”

Hari pernikahan telah tiba, aku telah siap, tapi aku tak sanggup untuk keluar. Aku berdiri didekat jendela, aku melihat matahari, karena mungkin saja aku takkan bisa melihat sinarnya lagi. Aku berdiri sangat lama.. lalu suamiku yang telah siap dengan pakaian pengantinnya masuk dan berbicara padaku.

“Apakah kamu sudah siap?”

Kuhapus airmata yang menetes diwajahku sambil berkata :

“Nanti jika ia telah sah jadi istrimu, ketika kamu membawa ia masuk kedalam rumah ini, cucilah kakinya sebagaimana kamu mencuci kakiku dulu, lalu ketika kalian masuk ke dalam kamar pengantin bacakan do’a di ubun-ubunnya sebagaimana yang kamu lakukan padaku dulu. Lalu setelah itu..”, perkataanku terhenti karena tak sanggup aku meneruskan pembicaraan itu, aku ingin menagis meledak.

Tiba-tiba suamiku menjawab “Lalu apa Bunda?”

Aku kaget mendengar kata itu, yang tadinya aku menunduk seketika aku langsung menatapnya dengan mata yang berbinar-binar…

“Bisa kamu ulangi apa yang kamu ucapkan barusan?”, pintaku tuk menyakini bahwa kuping ini tidak salah mendengar.

Dia mengangguk dan berkata, ”Baik bunda akan ayah ulangi, lalu apa bunda?”, sambil ia mengelus wajah dan menghapus airmataku, dia agak sedikit membungkuk karena dia sangat tinggi, aku hanya sedadanya saja.

Dia tersenyum sambil berkata, ”Kita lihat saja nanti ya!”. Dia memelukku dan berkata, “bunda adalah wanita yang paling kuat yang ayah temui selain mama”..

Kemudian ia mencium keningku, aku langsung memeluknya erat dan berkata, “Ayah, apakah ini akan segera berakhir? Ayah kemana saja? Mengapa Ayah berubah? Aku kangen sama Ayah? Aku kangen belaian kasih sayang Ayah? Aku kangen dengan manjanya Ayah? Aku kesepian Ayah? Dan satu hal lagi yang harus Ayah tau, bahwa aku tidak pernah berzinah! Dulu.. waktu awal kita pacaran, aku memang belum bisa melupakannya, setelah 4 bulan bersama Ayah baru bisa aku terima, jika yang dihadapanku itu adalah lelaki yang aku cari. Bukan berarti aku pernah berzina Ayah.” Aku langsung bersujud di kakinya dan muncium kaki imamku sambil berkata, ”Aku minta maaf Ayah, telah membuatmu susah”.

Saat itu juga, diangkatnya badanku.. ia hanya menangis.

Ia memelukku sangat lama, 2 tahun aku menanti dirinya kembali. Tiba-tiba perutku sakit, ia menyadari bahwa ada yang tidak beres denganku dan ia bertanya, ”bunda baik-baik saja kan?” tanyanya dengan penuh khawatir.

Aku pun menjawab, “bisa memeluk dan melihat kamu kembali seperti dulu itu sudah mebuatku baik, Yah. Aku hanya tak bisa bicara sekarang“. Karena dia akan menikah. Aku tak mau membuat dia khawatir. Dia harus khusyu menjalani acara prosesi akad nikah tersebut.

***

Setelah tiba dimasjid, ijab-qabul pun dimulai. Aku duduk diseberang suamiku.

Aku melihat suamiku duduk berdampingan dengan perempuan itu, membuat hati ini cemburu, ingin berteriak mengatakan, “Ayah jangan!!”, tapi aku ingat akan kondisiku.

Jantung ini berdebar kencang saat mendengar ijab-qabul tersebut. Begitu ijab-qabul selesai, aku menarik napas panjang. Tante Lia, tante yang baik itu, memelukku.. Dalam hati aku berusaha untuk menguatkan hati ini. Ya… aku kuat.

Tak sanggup aku melihat mereka duduk bersanding dipelaminan. Orang-orang yang hadir di acara resepsi itu iba melihatku, mereka melihatku dengan tatapan sangat aneh, mungkin melihat wajahku yang selalu tersenyum, tapi dibalik itu.. hatiku menangis.

Sampai dirumah, suamiku langsung masuk ke dalam rumah begitu saja. Tak mencuci kakinya. Aku sangat heran dengan perilakunya. Apa iya, dia tidak suka dengan pernikahan ini?

Sementara itu Desi disambut hangat di dalam keluarga suamiku, tak seperti aku dahulu, yang di musuhi.

Malam ini aku tak bisa tidur, bagaimana bisa? Suamiku akan tidur dengan perempuan yang sangat aku cemburui. Aku tak tahu apa yang sedang mereka lakukan didalam sana.

Sepertiga malam pada saat aku ingin sholat lail aku keluar untuk berwudhu, lalu aku melihat ada lelaki yang mirip suamiku tidur disofa ruang tengah. Kudekati lalu kulihat. Masya Allah.. suamiku tak tidur dengan wanita itu, ia ternyata tidur disofa, aku duduk disofa itu sambil menghelus wajahnya yang lelah, tiba-tiba ia memegang tangan kiriku, tentu saja aku kaget.

“Kamu datang ke sini, aku pun tahu”, ia berkata seperti itu. Aku tersenyum dan megajaknya sholat lail. Setelah sholat lail ia berkata, “maafkan aku, aku tak boleh menyakitimu, kamu menderita karena ego nya aku. Besok kita pulang ke Jakarta, biar Desi pulang dengan mama, papa dan juga adik-adikku”

Aku menatapnya dengan penuh keheranan. Tapi ia langsung mengajakku untuk istirahat. Saat tidur ia memelukku sangat erat. Aku tersenyum saja, sudah lama ini tidak terjadi. Ya Allah.. apakah Engkau akan menyuruh malaikat maut untuk mengambil nyawaku sekarang ini, karena aku telah merasakan kehadirannya saat ini. Tapi.. masih bisakah engkau ijinkan aku untuk merasakan kehangatan dari suamiku yang telah hilang selama 2 tahun ini..

Suamiku berbisik, “Bunda kok kurus?”

Aku menangis dalam kebisuan. Pelukannya masih bisa aku rasakan.

Aku pun berkata, “Ayah kenapa tidak tidur dengan Desi?”

”Aku kangen sama kamu Bunda, aku tak mau menyakitimu lagi. Kamu sudah sering terluka oleh sikapku yang egois.” Dengan lembut suamiku menjawab seperti itu.

Lalu suamiku berkata, ”Bun, Ayah minta maaf telah menelantarkan bunda.. Selama ayah di Sabang, ayah dengar kalau bunda tidak tulus mencintai ayah, bunda seperti mengejar sesuatu, seperti mengejar harta ayah dan satu lagi.. ayah pernah melihat sms bunda dengan mantan pacar bunda dimana isinya kalau bunda gak mau berbuat “seperti itu” dan tulisan seperti itu diberi tanda kutip (“seperti itu”). Ayah ingin ngomong tapi takut bunda tersinggung dan ayah berpikir kalau bunda pernah tidur dengannya sebelum bunda bertemu ayah, terus ayah dimarahi oleh keluarga ayah karena ayah terlalu memanjakan bunda..”

Hati ini sakit ketika difitnah oleh suamiku, ketika tidak ada kepercayaan di dirinya, hanya karena omongan keluarganya yang tidak pernah melihat betapa tulusnya aku mencintai pasangan seumur hidupku ini.

Aku hanya menjawab, “Aku sudah ceritakan itu kan Yah.. Aku tidak pernah berzinah dan aku mencintaimu setulus hatiku, jika aku hanya mengejar hartamu, mengapa aku memilih kamu? Padahal banyak lelaki yang lebih mapan darimu waktu itu Yah.. Jika aku hanya mengejar hartamu, aku tak mungkin setiap hari menangis karena menderita mencintaimu..“

Entah aku harus bahagia atau aku harus sedih karena sahabatku sendirian dikamar pengantin itu. Malam itu, aku menyelesaikan masalahku dengan suamiku dan berusaha memaafkannya beserta sikap keluarganya juga.

Karena aku tak mau mati dalam hati yang penuh dengan rasa benci.
Keesokan harinya…

Ketika aku ingin terbangun untuk mengambil wudhu, kepalaku pusing, rahimku sakit sekali.. aku mengalami pendarahan dan suamiku kaget bukan main, ia langsung menggendongku.

Aku pun dilarikan ke rumah sakit..

Dari kejauhan aku mendengar suara zikir suamiku..

Aku merasakan tanganku basah..

Ketika kubuka mata ini, kulihat wajah suamiku penuh dengan rasa kekhawatiran.

Ia menggenggam tanganku dengan erat.. Dan mengatakan, ”Bunda, Ayah minta maaf…”

Berkali-kali ia mengucapkan hal itu. Dalam hatiku, apa ia tahu apa yang terjadi padaku?

Aku berkata dengan suara yang lirih, ”Yah, bunda ingin pulang.. bunda ingin bertemu kedua orang tua bunda, anterin bunda kesana ya, Yah..”

“Ayah jangan berubah lagi ya! Janji ya, Yah… !!! Bunda sayang banget sama Ayah.”

Tiba-tiba saja kakiku sakit sangat sakit, sakitnya semakin keatas, kakiku sudah tak bisa bergerak lagi.. aku tak kuat lagi memegang tangan suamiku. Kulihat wajahnya yang tampan, berlinang air mata.

Sebelum mata ini tertutup, kulafazkan kalimat syahadat dan ditutup dengan kalimat tahlil.

Aku bahagia melihat suamiku punya pengganti diriku..

Aku bahagia selalu melayaninya dalam suka dan duka..

Menemaninya dalam ketika ia mengalami kesulitan dari kami pacaran sampai kami menikah.

Aku bahagia bersuamikan dia. Dia adalah nafasku.

Untuk Ibu mertuaku : “Maafkan aku telah hadir didalam kehidupan anakmu sampai aku hidup didalam hati anakmu. Ketahuilah Ma.. dari dulu aku selalu berdo’a agar Mama merestui hubungan kami.

Mengapa engkau fitnah diriku didepan suamiku, apa engkau punya buktinya Ma?

Mengapa engkau sangat cemburu padaku Ma?

Fikri tetap milikmu Ma, aku tak pernah menyuruhnya untuk durhaka kepadamu, dari dulu aku selalu mengerti apa yang kamu inginkan dari anakmu, tapi mengapa kau benci diriku.. Dengan Desi kau sangat baik tetapi denganku menantumu kau bersikap sebaliknya..”

***

Setelah ku buka laptop, kubaca curhatan istriku.

==========================
===========================

Ayah, mengapa keluargamu sangat membenciku?

Aku dihina oleh mereka ayah..

Mengapa mereka bisa baik terhadapku pada saat ada dirimu?

Pernah suatu ketika aku bertemu Dian di jalan, aku menegurnya karena dia adik iparku tapi aku disambut dengan wajah ketidaksukaannya. Sangat terlihat Ayah..

Tapi ketika engkau bersamaku, Dian sangat baik, sangat manis dan ia memanggilku dengan panggilan yang sangat menghormatiku. Mengapa seperti itu ayah ?

Aku tak bisa berbicara tentang ini padamu, karena aku tahu kamu pasti membela adikmu, tak ada gunanya Yah..

Aku diusir dari rumah sakit.

Aku tak boleh merawat suamiku.

Aku cemburu pada Desi yang sangat akrab dengan mertuaku.

Tiap hari ia datang ke rumah sakit bersama mertuaku.

Aku sangat marah..

Jika aku membicarakan hal ini pada suamiku, ia akan pasti membela Desi dan

ibunya..

Aku tak mau sakit hati lagi..

Ya Allah kuatkan aku, maafkan aku..

Engkau Maha Adil..

Berilah keadilan ini padaku, Ya Allah..

Ayah sudah berubah, ayah sudah tak sayang lagi pada ku..

Aku berusaha untuk mandiri ayah, aku tak akan bermanja-manja lagi padamu..

Aku kuat ayah dalam kesakitan ini..

Lihatlah ayah, aku kuat walaupun penyakit kanker ini terus menyerangku..

Aku bisa melakukan ini semua sendiri ayah..

Besok suamiku akan menikah dengan perempuan itu. Perempuan yang aku benci, yang aku cemburui, tapi aku tak boleh egois, ini untuk kebahagian keluarga suamiku. Aku harus sadar diri.

Ayah, sebenarnya aku tak mau diduakan olehmu..

Mengapa harus Desi yang menjadi sahabatku?

Ayah.. aku masih tak rela..

Tapi aku harus ikhlas menerimanya.

Pagi nanti suamiku melangsungkan pernikahan keduanya. Semoga saja aku masih punya waktu untuk melihatnya tersenyum untukku. Aku ingin sekali merasakan kasih sayangnya yang terakhir. Sebelum ajal ini menjemputku.

”Ayah.. aku kangen Ayah..”
’’Dan kini aku telah membawamu ke orang tuamu, Bunda..

Aku akan mengunjungimu sebulan sekali bersama Desi di Pulau Kayu ini.

Aku akan selalu membawakanmu bunga mawar yang berwana pink yang mencerminkan keceriaan hatimu yang sakit tertusuk duri.’’

Bunda tetap cantik, selalu tersenyum disaat tidur..

Bunda akan selalu hidup dihati ayah..

Bunda.. Desi tak sepertimu, yang tidak pernah marah..

Desi sangat berbeda denganmu, ia tak pernah membersihkan telingaku, rambutku tak pernah di creambathnya, kakiku pun tak pernah dicucinya.

Ayah menyesal telah menelantarkanmu selama 2 tahun, kamu sakit pun aku tak perduli, hidup dalam kesendirianmu..

Seandainya Ayah tak menelantarkan Bunda, mungkin Ayah masih bisa tidur dengan belaian tangan Bunda yang halus..

Sekarang Ayah sadar, bahwa ayah sangat membutuhkan bunda..

Bunda.. kamu wanita yang paling tegar yang pernah kutemui..

Aku menyesal telah asik dalam ke-egoanku..

Bunda.. maafkan aku.. Bunda tidur tetap manis. Senyum manjamu terlihat di tidurmu yang panjang..

’’Maafkan aku, tak bisa bersikap adil dan membahagiakanmu, aku selalu meng-iyakan apa kata ibuku, karena aku takut menjadi anak durhaka.

Maafkan aku ketika kau di fitnah oleh keluargaku, aku percaya begitu saja..

Apakah Bunda akan mendapat pengganti ayah di surga sana?

Apakah Bunda tetap menanti ayah disana? Tetap setia dialam sana?

Tunggulah Ayah disana Bunda..

Bisakan? Seperti Bunda menunggu ayah di sini.. Aku mohon..

’’Ayah Sayang Bunda….’’
