They were on the bicycle again, under one raincoat. Mr. Sarkawi peddled as fast as he could and the rain poured even harder. Suddenly, they heard the sound of ‘kentongan’ from the direction of their village. Mr. Sarkawi tried to peddler harder. Mrs. Sarkawi got very worried too, but she kept silent. They knew that something bad was happening in their village.
They finally reached the gate of their village. The road was flooded. The water rose knee-high. People were running in and out their houses. Now, Mr. Sarkawi had to push the bicycle toward their house. He put the bicycle in the shade and they burst into their house. Their two children were pushing chairs to the side of the room.
