I was flying in the sky.

I was playing with kids on the street.
I was watching Copa America.
I went to some party somewhere.
I was enjoying the hostel and I was sleeping a lot.
Then Sunday morning I noticed that I didn’t write anything, not even one word this week…
I really wanted to write a continuation of the last post “Porque que es estoy aqui 2/2” and I wanted to explain why exactly I’m still in Medellin … But I don’t have enough time to write to explain it, I already decided the day I will leave here and I want to write it having enough time and good sentences.
So, What I can write on this post ?
I had no idea this morning when I came back from the club and I was thinking about this week’s subject with my brain which was becoming crazier.
At that moment, I got a messenger call from Japan.
It was my young brother.
“Hey, brother!! Where are you now!? Are you OK!?”
As soon as I took the call, my brother asked me very seriously.
According to a story, he told me, my mum got a phone call from somebody this morning (at Japan time). They talked with mum in English, she panicked because she doesn’t know any English and she changed the call to my father who also doesn’t speak English. He tried to understand what they said even though he doesn’t speak any English as well but he just understood the word “Hironori (my first name)”, “Colombia” and “trouble”
I began to understand what my brother was saying and what happened while I was listening to his story. Because I bought the flight ticket for leaving from Medellin with my Japanese credit card on the last evening. But my Japanese bank account was almost broke and they contacted the number which I wrote on a bill contact address.
After I hung up my brother’s call, I changed the credit card of payment from the Japanese bank to the Canadian bank. They sent me an e-mail that confirmed my reservation and as soon as I made sure, I sent a screenshot of the confirmation page and I told him everything is alright now. But he replied that if I have time, I should call my family and I should talk with my father because today is Father day.
I called my home with my brain which was becoming crazier (I’m sorry to my family about that). “Hello. This is Ozaki (my family name), May I help you?” After a while, my father answered.
“Hey, This is Hironori, I heard what happened from brother. I’m sorry about that, Dad.”
I explained why they called our house and I already solved this problem but he told seriously:
“I was just scared when I talked with them. I had no idea what their English was saying but I got the word “Hironori” “Colombia” and “trouble” and I thought that you would get involved in some crime in Colombia. I also had no idea why you are staying in Colombia because you told me you are in Canada and were supposed to go to New Zealand when we talked last time. I tried to understand what they wanted to say exactly and I talked with them for 20 mins but I absolutely had no idea what they said and suddenly the line dropped.”
While I was listening to his story, I could imagine his situation clearly. Probably It would the first time he speaks English but after he heard my name and the word “Colombia” where I shouldn’t be, he would get into a panic and he would try to understand them somehow even though he can’t understand any English.
I just thought “I’m sorry.” While he was saying his story but after he finished talking, the unexpected word came out from my mouth..
“Thank you always”
A lot of words went throughout my fu*king crazy brain but I couldn’t say them and I just said only this one word.
But that word really came from the bottom of my heart and I couldn’t say anything without it.
“Thank you always my dad”
In any case, I’m glad that I could say that word to him on father’s day even though, he was really surprised when he heard that word from me (The day which started with an ambiguous English call and ended with his son’s ambiguous word would become an irreparable day for him.) and he asked me the number where they can call me over and over until I hung up the phone and I explained to him that I want them to have a smartphone to reduce our distance.
“Thank you always my dad” and…
“I’m sorry my dad for using your irreparable day to keep my deadline.”
