Centipede Bite

It was Friday the 13th. I was rushing through a project and only managed to go to bed at 2am. At 2.45am I jumped out of bed out of a sudden. I don’t know why or what woke me up but there I was, blur sotong thinking what had happened and then I saw Darling staring blankly at the wall with his left hand on his right arm.  I asked him what happened and our conversation went something like this:

Darling: I don’t know. Felt like something bit me.
Me: What thing bit you?
Darling: I said I dunno lor.
Me: Then where is that thing now?
Darling: How should I know?
Me: Yer! Means that fella is still somewhere in our room!

I quickly checked on Ayden and Ethan to see if any creepy crawlies are crawling into their mouth or ears or something but thank goodness, nothing..

Me: What makes you think something bit you?!
Darling: I feel pain lah!
Me: Then what you did to that fella?
Darling: I smacked that fella lah apa lagi?
Me: If you smacked dy then where is it lah????

At this point I was getting annoyed coz not knowing the whereabouts of the creepy crawly is the worst fear of all.

Darling: If I know, you think we’ll be arguing about it now?


Darling then saw that his head pillow is on the floor and proceeded to pick it up only to find a centipede under it. He quickly took a book holder and smack it real hard until it died. I looked at him and he looked at me.

Me: You okay?
Darling: Yeah.
Me: Got feel anything or not?
Darling: Like ants bite lah.
Me: Got bengkak or anything or not?
Darling: No lah.

Then he went to wash his arm and went back to bed.

Me: Why did I wake up? Did you shout or anything?
Darling: Dunno. No.. Zzz…
Me: Need to see doctor?
Darling: No need. Zzz…

Just like that he went back to bed. I was unable to sleep after that. Kept checking on him to see if he is still breathing! >_< I don’t know when did I finally dozed off but when I woke up the next morning and saw that he is not on his side of the bed, I quickly jumped out to see if he has fallen down onto the floor or anything but thank goodness he was not on the floor neither. Means he is fine lah. Means he is downstairs dy lah. Then I saw him walking into the room. I asked him if he is okay and he said, “Yeah. I haven’t turn into Centipedeman yet”.

In the afternoon when I casually mentioned this to my friends, they told me to get him checked at the clinic but he was adamant not to go saying he is fine. So happened that we were at the Pharmacy so I got him to check with the Pharmacist. The pharmacist said that there was no obvious puncture bites on Darling’s arm so that could mean that the centipede did not manage to have a good feast on him. There was also no swollen or any other symptoms and it is already 12 hours after the incident so Darling should be fine. 

So yeah. There goes my Friday. I cleaned up our room and disinfect the bathroom just in case there are more centipedes lying around -.- No picture of the dead centipede though as I am not so crazy to take pic of the centipede for the sake of FB or blogging. I know some people will quickly take out their phone to record a snake swallowing them so they can upload on FB the entire process of the snake feasting on them (what?!) but I’m not that crazy. I might be a little sewel but yeah.. I’m not that crazy :P

Actually the truth is I would like to have a picture of it but Darling was really quick in killing that fella and flushing it down the toilet that I had no chance at all lah… -.-

      We get centipede every once in a while downstairs in the washroom but never here, upstairs. This is our first time and I hope the last :(

    Hate those little crawling things.

    That is scary. The only crawling creature in my room is roach and I hate it.

    Now I think I will need to do some cleaning around the room as so many things scattered around.

    Luckily nothing happen to the kids.

      I kept counting my blessing that the centipede did not bite Ayden or Ethan. I am scared just thinking about it :(

    Sounds so dangerous!

    O__O Never knew centipedes bit!! Maybe what he felt were the legs?

    This reminds me of the time I felt a cockroach scuttle ACROSS MY FACE when I was asleep. Smelt it before I felt it, too. Bugs. What a pain!
