Firdaus was always crying when I visited him. He was in the incubator, with drips, been pricked over and over again because the canula keep dislodging... Faiz was always quite, smiling and contented. I have to ask the nurse if he ever cries..
That was 16 years ago. They're turning 17 this year...Last year after the PMR (Penilaian Menengah Rendah- Lower Secondary Assessment) results, Firdaus got a place in a boarding school. Faiz did not... they were then separated. They were very closed, played the same game, was in the same badminton and basketball team. Same interest in Nasyeeds, religious activities in school. Firdaus managed to become prefect, but Faiz did not, after a few attempts. We have advised him accordingly.
After the separation, Faiz started to change... he eats a lot, sleep alot, was very unstable. Firdaus was also very stressed up in boarding school, getting thinner and sickier. Have I made the right decision in separating them? I've seen twins achieving good things together...could it be ... I believe everything that happen is in Allah's hand, it has been written, but we human should make wise decisions too before comitting, should I have been more careful?
