Iguana Penyendiri

Iguana Penyendiri

Gugun Iguana yang sangat pendiam dan pemalu. Gugun hampir tidak pernah keluar dari rumahnya. Dia hanya keluar pada saat dia punya kebutuhan yang mendesak. Itulah sebabnya Gugun sulit sekali mempunyai teman. Padahal jauh di lubuk hatinya, Gugun iguana merasa kesepian karena selalu hidup sendiri. Apalagi ayah dan ibunya sudah tidak ada.

Suatu hari, Gugun Iguana bertemu dengan seekor laiat. Namanya Lala. Lala adalah lalat yang sangat periang, berbeda sekali dengan Gugun Iguana. Setiap kali Lala mendekat, Gugun selalu menghindarinya. Tapi Lala tidak menyerah. Hampir setiap kali Gugun keluar, Lala akan menyambutnya dengan senyuman.

“Selamat pagi, Gugun,” sapanya setiap kali bertemu.

Perlahan Gugun sudah mulai bisa tersenyum walaupun jarang. Lala tahu bahwa suatu saat dia akan berhasil berteman dengan Gugun. Gugun yang tadinya sangat terganggu dengan kehadiran Lala, kini mulai terbiasa. Namun, sudah beberapa hari Gugun Iguana tidak bertemu dan melihat Lala.

“Ke mana lalat itu? Biasanya ketika aku keluar, dia sudah berada di depan pintu menungguku,” gumam Iguana.

Gugun mulai khawatir dengan keadaan Lala. Apa mungkin dia sudah bosan membujuk Gugun agar mau menjadi temannya? Rasa penasaran Gugun membawanya sampai ke rumah Lala. Baru saja hendak mengetuk, pintu rumah Lala terbuka. Rupanya Lala sedang sakit.

“Waah, aku tidak menyangka bahwa kau yang begitu senang menyendiri, akhirnya menjengukku juga,” ucap Lala.

Gugun Iguana hanya tersenyum. Lala paham, memang butuh waktu untuk membuat Gugun menjadi lebih baik. Apalagi Gugun Iguana sudah terlalu lama sendiri. Tapi, Gugun sudah mengalami banyak perubahan. Buktinya Gugun mau menjenguk Lala ke rumah. Semoga saja besok Gugun sudah bisa ia ajak bermain bersama-sama.

Pesan Moral :

Kita bisa karena terbiasa. Mungkin membiasakan sesuatu memang perlu bantuan dari orang lain. Seperti Gugun yang perlu menjadi temannya. Meskipun dia tidak pernah mengungkapkan itu lewat kata.

Loner Iguanas

A very quiet and shy Iguana Gugun. Gugun almost never goes out of his house. He only comes out when he has an urgent need. That is why Gugun is so difficult to have friends. Even though deep down, Gugun iguana feels lonely because he always lives alone. Moreover, his father and mother were gone.

One day, Gugun Iguana met a laiat. His name is Lala. Lala is a very jolly fly, very different from Gugun Iguana. Every time Lala approaches, Gugun always avoids it. But Lala did not give up. Almost every time Gugun comes out, Lala will greet him with a smile.

“Good morning, Gugun,” he said each time he met.

Slowly Gugun has begun to smile, although rarely. Lala knows that one day she will succeed in making friends with Gugun. Gugun, who was very disturbed by Lala’s presence, is now getting used to it. However, Gugun Iguana hasn’t met and seen Lala for several days.

“Where are the flies? Usually when I come out, he is in front of the door waiting for me,” muttered Iguana.

Gugun starts to worry about Lala’s condition. Could it be that he was tired of persuading Gugun to become his friend? Gugun’s curiosity led him to Lala’s house. Just about to knock, Lala’s door opened. Apparently Lala was sick.

“Wow, I didn’t think that you who were so happy to be alone, finally visited me too,” Lala said.

Gugun Iguana just smiled. Lala understands, it takes time to make Gugun better. Moreover, Gugun Iguana has been alone for too long. But, Gugun has undergone many changes. The proof is that Gugun wants to visit Lala at home. Hopefully tomorrow he can invite Gugun to play together.

Moral message :

We can because we are used to it. Maybe getting used to something does need help from others. Like Gugun who needs to be his friend. Even though he never revealed it in words.
