HAPPI WON’T COME DOWN

Lina walk faster to the Clinic. She took a bottle, pour in warm water and four spoon full of milk then stir it. Milk for luring Happi the orangutan that won’t come down were made in the speed of tlight.

This is not the first time Happi the orangutan won’t come down from the tree. Usually when the time to come home, Owi the orangutan came down and not long after other orangutans will follow, Happi not exception. But this time when all the orangutans had come down, back to the cage and all the hammocks had been packed, Happi the orangutan still did not want to go down. it’s had been 45 minutes for Herlina, animal keeper yelled for Happi but ignored. Happi was busy eating the fruit of the forest, sitting in the nest at the tip of the tree.

Climb to catch up.. not possible. The tree is to high, almost 25 meters. Desperate, Herlina sat at the root of the tree waiting for Happi the orangutan. The milk she made was also useless, Happi the orangutan did not look down at all. But Lina did not give up, her eyes always looked up, hoping Happi will saw it.

“Pucuk di cinta, ulam pun tiba” (shoots in loved, dish arrived – Indonesian words means : gaining something more than what been hope for/ dream for – Ed). Herlina waited was not in vain. Happi the orangutan sees it and immediately looks for ways to get off. It took about 10 minutes for Happi to get off the tree. “Happi is to cool to play, not realizing that all other orangutans are back in the cage,” said Lina. “Happi, if you want to climb later on, remember the time ya, Nak! Your mother is not able to climb to get you,” she added. (Dhea_Orangufriends)

HAPPI TIDAK MAU TURUN
Kaki Lina melaju cepat menuju klinik. Lina mengambil botol, mengisinya dengan air hangat dan memasukkan empat sendok susu lalu mengaduknya. Susu untuk memancing orangutan Happi yang tak mau turun pun jadi secepat kilat.

Ini bukan kali pertama orangutan Happi tidak mau turun pohon. Biasanya ketika waktunya pulang, orangutan Owi akan turun lalu tak lama kemudian orangutan yang lain akan mengikutinya, tidak terkecuali Happi. Namun kali ini ketika semua orangutan sudah turun, kembali ke kandang dan semua hammock sudah dikemasi, orangutan Happi masih saja tidak mau turun. 45 menit sudah Herlina, animal keeper teriak-teriak memanggil Happi tetapi tidak juga dihiraukannya. Happi sibuk memakan buah hutan, duduk di sarang buatannya di ujung pohon.

Memanjat untuk menyusulnya… tidak mungkin. Pohonnya terlalu tinggi, hampir 25 meter. Seperti putus asa, Herlina duduk di akar pohon menunggu orangutan Happi. Susu yang dibuatnya pun juga seperti tidak berguna, orangutan Happi tidak melihat ke bawah sama sekali. Tapi Lina tidak menyerah, matanya selalu melihat ke atas, berharap orangutan Happi melihatnya.

Pucuk di cinta, ulam pun tiba. Penantian Herlina tidak sia-sia. Orangutan Happi melihatnya dan segera mencari cara untuk turun. Butuh waktu sekitar 10 menit untuk Happi bisa turun dari pohonnya. “Happi terlalu asik main, tidak sadar kalau teman-temannya sudah kembali ke kandang semua.”, ujar Lina. “Happi, besok-besok kalau manjat, ingat waktu ya nak. Ibumu ini ngak bisa manjat nyusulin kamu.”, tambahnya. (WET)
