Contoh Narrative Text :Belumbak Island

THERE was an old woman lived near the Kapuas River, West Kalimantan. She had two sons. Her husband had died a long time ago. The woman took care of her sons by herself. She taught them to be independent. The two sons were teenagers. They wanted to have a better life. Every day they saw big ships sailing along the Kapuas River. They saw rich merchants with beautiful ships. They also wanted to become rich merchants. They really wanted to have big and beautiful ships.

The two sons told their plans to their mother. The woman was very sad. She did not want to lose her children. However, they insisted that they would come back soon. And they also promised to be back home with a lot of money.

The woman could not hold them any longer. She finally let them go. And before the sons left, they gave their mother their chicks. They said that they would come home when the chicks grew as cocks.

The two brothers joined a big ship. The owner of the ship was a rich merchant. He gave them a job in his ship. They were very happy. Their dream started to come true.

After working for the rich merchant for some time, the two brothers bought their own ships. Each of them bought a small ship. They worked very hard and slowly they became very rich.

The two brothers were famous. Many people were amazed with their wealth and their beautiful and big ships. Many young girls fell in love with them. And finally the two brothers got married. Their wives were really beautiful.

It had been a really long time since the two brothers left their home. They wanted to visit their hometown. The two brothers told their wives and their crew that they would sail to Kapuas Rivet, their hometown.

The ships sailed side by side. And every time the ships passed by at a harbor, people were always talking about them. They were talking about the rich brothers who would go back home. The news about the two brothers was spreading very fast. Their mother also heard the news and she was extremely happy.

The woman had been waiting for their children. She was old and very weak. Every day she was always thinking about her sons.

And when her sons’ ships finally arrived, she brought the cocks. She wanted to show the cocks to her children.

First she came to the oldest son.

“My Son, it’s me. I am your mother. Look! I brought your cock.”

The oldest son was shocked to see his mother. She was old and looked shabby. The oldest son was ashamed to see his own mother.

“No! I don’t know you! You are not my mother. Go away!”

The old woman was very sad. She was crying. Then she went to the second ship. It belonged to his second son. Sadly, his second son also behaved badly. He also denied the woman as his mother.

The woman was very sad. She never thought it would happen to her. Her sons ignored her and did not want to admit her as their mother. She prayed to God. She asked God to punish her children.

God heard the prayer. Suddenly a heavy storm attacked the river. The rain fell down heavily. The two brothers wanted to save their lives. Their ships sailed very fast. But they could not save their lives. The storm made their ships sink.

And after the storm was over, people saw two islands in the middle of Kapuas River. The islands looked like two ships sailing in the, race competition. People then named the islands as Belumbak Island. Belumbak is from the word ‘berlomba’ or ‘race competition’. ***

Terjemahan Belumbak Island

Ada seorang wanita tua yang tinggal di dekat Sungai Kapuas, Kalimantan Barat. Dia memiliki dua putra. Suaminya sudah lama meninggal. Wanita itu merawat anak-anaknya sendirian. Dia mengajari mereka untuk mandiri. Kedua anak laki-laki itu adalah remaja. Mereka ingin memiliki kehidupan yang lebih baik. Setiap hari mereka melihat kapal-kapal besar berlayar di sepanjang Sungai Kapuas. Mereka melihat pedagang kaya dengan kapal yang indah. Mereka juga ingin menjadi pedagang kaya. Mereka benar-benar ingin memiliki kapal besar dan indah.

Kedua putra tersebut menceritakan rencana mereka kepada ibu mereka. Wanita itu sangat sedih. Dia tidak ingin kehilangan anak-anaknya. Namun, mereka bersikeras bahwa mereka akan segera kembali. Dan mereka juga berjanji akan kembali ke rumah dengan banyak uang.

Wanita itu tidak bisa menahan mereka lagi. Dia akhirnya membiarkan mereka pergi. Dan sebelum anak laki-laki pergi, mereka memberi ibu mereka anak-anak mereka. Mereka mengatakan bahwa mereka akan pulang saat anak ayam tumbuh sebagai ayam.

Kedua bersaudara tersebut bergabung dengan sebuah kapal besar. Pemilik kapal itu adalah pedagang kaya. Dia memberi mereka pekerjaan di kapalnya. Mereka sangat senang. Impian mereka mulai terwujud.

Setelah bekerja untuk pedagang kaya itu untuk beberapa lama, kedua bersaudara tersebut membeli kapal mereka sendiri. Masing-masing membeli kapal kecil. Mereka bekerja sangat keras dan perlahan mereka menjadi sangat kaya.

Kedua bersaudara itu terkenal. Banyak orang kagum dengan kekayaan dan kapal indah dan besar mereka. Banyak gadis muda jatuh cinta pada mereka. Dan akhirnya kedua bersaudara tersebut menikah. Istri mereka sangat cantik.

Sudah lama sekali sejak kedua bersaudara tersebut meninggalkan rumah mereka. Mereka ingin mengunjungi kampung halaman mereka. Kedua saudara laki-laki tersebut memberi tahu istri dan kru mereka bahwa mereka akan berlayar ke Kapuas Rivet, kampung halaman mereka.

Kapal-kapal berlayar berdampingan. Dan setiap kali kapal-kapal itu lewat di pelabuhan, orang-orang selalu membicarakannya. Mereka berbicara tentang saudara kaya yang akan kembali ke rumah. Berita tentang kedua bersaudara itu menyebar dengan sangat cepat. Ibu mereka juga mendengar kabar tersebut dan dia sangat senang.

Wanita itu telah menunggu anak-anak mereka. Dia sudah tua dan sangat lemah. Setiap hari dia selalu memikirkan anak-anaknya.

Dan ketika kapal anak laki-lakinya akhirnya tiba, dia membawa ayam jantan itu. Dia ingin menunjukkan ayam itu kepada anak-anaknya.

Pertama dia datang ke putra sulung.

“Anakku, ini aku, aku ibumu, lihat aku membawa ayammu.”

Putra sulung kaget melihat ibunya. Dia sudah tua dan tampak lusuh. Putra tertua merasa malu melihat ibunya sendiri.

“Tidak, saya tidak mengenal Anda, Anda bukan ibuku, pergilah!”

Wanita tua itu sangat sedih. Dia menangis. Lalu dia pergi ke kapal kedua. Itu milik putra keduanya. Sayangnya, anak keduanya juga berperilaku buruk. Dia juga menyangkal wanita itu sebagai ibunya.

Wanita itu sangat sedih. Dia tidak pernah menyangka hal itu akan menimpanya. Anak laki-lakinya mengabaikannya dan tidak mau mengakuinya sebagai ibu mereka. Dia berdoa kepada Tuhan. Dia meminta Tuhan untuk menghukum anak-anaknya.

Tuhan mendengar doa itu. Tiba-tiba badai yang berat menyerang sungai. Hujan turun sangat deras. Kedua bersaudara tersebut ingin menyelamatkan nyawa mereka. Kapal mereka berlayar dengan sangat cepat. Tapi mereka tidak bisa menyelamatkan nyawa mereka. Badai membuat kapal mereka tenggelam.

Dan setelah badai usai, orang melihat dua pulau di tengah Sungai Kapuas. Pulau-pulau itu tampak seperti dua kapal berlayar dalam lomba, lomba. Orang kemudian menamai pulau tersebut sebagai Belumbak Island. Belumbak adalah dari kata ‘berlomba’ atau ‘race competition’. ***
