Dalal & Abdulwahab Part 1

Dalal and her friend walked down the crowded street heading to get a quick dinner, on the way they ran into a couple of friends. Everyone said their hellos, there were three guys with the girls one of them was with Dalal in class. Muneera, their friend and the one who was with the guys decided to invite them to dinner.
Abdulwahab, the guy with Dalal in class decided to sit on the other side of the table, they were all nice people even though it was the first time for them to actually sit together and talk. These meetings became casual and they all became a group of friends after a few months.

Wahab and Dalal became good friends and study partners, they would spend hours in the library in an attempt to write a paper or study for an exam but instead they would just hang out and talk.

"o55 9arat 12 already! yalla nrja3 il bait?"

"olla yeah i think we should"

"5al awa9lich its a bit late 566r trj3een bro7ich"

"la walla 3ade wahab, kahi ilshiqa 10 mins away"

"no problem awa9lich oo arid ana"

"tara walla 3ade"

thats how it started, he started driving her home and they would talk more and more everyday.
the semester ended and they would still meet up for coffee or a stroll in the park.
Wahab was the sweetest guy Dalal has ever met, he never asked for anything more than friendship he wasnt always there but when he was he was all hers.

it was the middle of the week and Dalal's friend just left her place, Wahab called a few minutes later.

"hi wahab, whats up?"

"umm dalal mash'3oola?

"la, shfeek are you ok?"

"3ade ayelich shwaya? m7taj a7ad akalm a7ad, 9arle 10 mins a7oos 3ala your block bas 5ayef I call you."

"umm ee sure sure, come pass by"

dalal was nervous she never had a guy over at her place and she didnt want it to be awkward, she decided to take 2 bottles of water and a couple of snacks and waited for him on the steps.
she saw him parking right in front of her apartment.


"heey.. whats up? 5ara3tnyy!"

"sorry bas kint mitwater oo madre mino akalim"

"tell me wahab"

"yadi bilmistashfa al7een, hes in the intensive care unit oo mani gadr arja3 ildeer oboi igool mala da3i bas 7as ina 7alta 5a6ra wayed dalal; i really dont know what to do"

"tabe trja3 bil weekend? we have a long weekend coming up.. it wont affect your studies, what do you think? oo 3ala your grandpa mafe ila il3afia inshalla he will be ok inshalla dont worry about him; itha 9ij fee shay your dad would tell you to go back bas he didnt"

"madre dalal, galbi mu mit6amin"

"t3awith min iblees wahab maku ila il3afiya, anything you want to talk about im here"

"kila arta7 lama asolif wiyach, china I knew you minziman" he turns around to face her and gives her his killer smile
he looked so tired and exhausted.
she felt so comfortable with him all she wanted was a hug.
they went silent for a while all they did was look at the sky, it was such a typical movie moment but it was so perfect.

"water? granola bars?"


they sat there talked for half an hour and then he went back to his apt and that weekend he went back home to see his grandfather.

Wahab and Dalal kept on texting each other, they got closer everyday, but half way through the summer semester he stopped hanging out, he would call her once in a while but then he started drifting away.
Dalal was worried she didnt know what went wrong; its not like they were a couple or something, she felt like she did something wrong she kept on repeating everything she did but nothing was different. she knew she liked him, but she didnt know if he liked her back. She discussed it with her friends day and night what could possibly go wrong. she didnt flirt or do anything unexpected. she was so disappointed every time  she wanted to call her stubbornness would stop her. soon enough they lost contact. for about two weeks before heading back to kuwait she lost complete contact with him. she didnt see him in campus not even restaurants or places she went out with her friend.

those two weeks were the longest two weeks of her life. she couldnt wait till she got back to kuwait and got herself busy with visiting people and attending gatherings.

the first two days back home were typical with visiting family and close friends. but all her mind was thinking about was wahab.

it was the last year for both of them even though he was a year older than her since he took an english course. she thought maybe in the fall when they go back they would be friends again or something. he was constantly on her mind every day every minute.

she was always lost in her thoughts even though she was hanging out with her parents.

"Daloola? Dalaal?"

"Hala Baba?"

"shfeech sar7ana yuba? tfakreen ibmino?" he winked

"hahahaha baba afakirr feeeek!"

"ee 3adil! 5oush jawab! agool bakalmich ibmawtho3 oo ana atwaqa3 t3arfeen batkalam 3an shino?"

"mawthoo3 shino?"

"tara ana 3albuna dad cool ma5th ilwath3 easy, ilwa7id maykalim binta chithi haa..."

"hahaha baba shitikalam 3ana?"

"t3arfeen wahab liflani?"

"ee wiyay biljam3a, hes a really good friend laish t3arf obo?"

"laaa, ams oma mita9ala bumich oo 6alib eedich"

"ana? mit2akid wahab?"

"ee yuba mit2akid, latsaween roo7ich china intay wiya mo m5a6i6eenha!!"

"ay m5a6i6eenha baba, wala i dont know about him the last time i talked to him was like 2 weeks ago, oo faja 9ar distant, are you sure it wahab ili ib jam3iti wahab?"

"ee sure, tara ohwa 5oush walad bas abeech tfakreen bilmawthoo3 ana kalamta oo he has his whole future planned out, he knows what he wants, bas abeech tfakreen bilmawthoo3 3adil yuba hatha mu li3ib hatha zawaj"

"inshalla baba"

"when you come up with a decision tell me"


she raced to her room couldnt believe the news her dad just told her about. she took her phone, looked for his contact and whatsapped him immediately.

D: hey

2 seconds later

AW: halaa, shlounich minziman 3anich!

D: 7amdilah how are you? hows break? ee you stopped asking.

AW: 7amdilah kilshay b5air, ee lahait shway.

D: aha okk, anways my dad told me about you and I have to think about it :)

she was really pissed at that second, she thought he didnt talk to her because he was too excited for this moment or too shy or something that would make her happy and not "ee lahait"
she put her phone away and decided to sleep. she slept with a heavy heart, she didnt look at the phone and she had it on silent.

she woke up the next morning, washed up, prayed, had breakfast and totally forgot about her phone. she didnt think that he would reply since he was "lahe"

she finally went back to her room to check her phone, only to find 10 missed calls from him and so many whatsapps with Dalal? wain ri7tay? and the last whatsapp was asif az3ajtich, talk to me when you get the chance ana banam al7een.

I sit here typing my feelings letter by letter, the only problem is i don't really know what i feel. i have everything i have dreamed of but I'm never fully satisfied, i always have the urge of wanting more, I try to stop it and be thankful for what i have but i simply cant. 

Looking over the past few years i have realized that i grew up a lot, my thinking and perspective of life has changed, yet i still feel that kind of emptiness. it was filled once for a month where i believed I was on cloud 9, I was the happiest girl on earth, I wouldn't stop smiling but then December came and ruined everything. I just wish it was true but unfortunately I know its not. everyday I tried to replace it, that emptiness, but I cant. I don't think I will ever because its simply not the same without you. I tried to forget, I cannot and I will not. why does it always lead back to you? and when I allow myself to accept that its true I try to resist talking about it. look at me, I don't even know what I'm writing about yet all I know is that the answer is you. I also know that it will not act the same as before because of all that has happened in between; but what am I saying its not like it will happen again. 

I just wish that it was true.

How it started... 2/3

"Yasmeena, all guys are like that; plus he admits it better than the others. He obviously changed, if he just wanted to play you then he wouldn't ask your dad"

"I know, bas I cannot live with a man and I know he used to drink, sleep with women and do God knows what"

"did he tell you he used to drink and sleep with girls?"

"la, bas its obvious he does!!"

"Yasmeena 7abebti, if he admitted that he had girlfriends I dont think he will mind telling you everything about himself"

"thats the thing manoor, I dont want to like him more and forget everything he did wrong, I know deep down hes a really good guy, I also know he learned from his mistakes; doesnt mean he would repeat them. Also, what if we get married and have children oo 3yali y6l3oon nafsa!"

"ok im going to say this once, if he calls and really wants you, give him a chance, tell him ina you need to ask him about everything he needs to say the truth and you'll think about it; may you do that for me?"

She went quite for a while,"yeah."

"yimkin he only dated girls, yimkin bas kan y6la3 wiyaha; how is that different from you and hamad?"

"excuse me?! Hamad and I werent a thing! We didnt hang out! We didnt talk about our feelings towards each other!"

"but you know you liked each other, he used to talk to you 24/7 about everything!"

"its different, we were just close friends"

"ok, give wahab a chance; you never know he might be perfect for you"


A week later.

1 text message received.

"hi yasmeen, may I talk to you sometime today? Whenever youre free."

It was a random number.

She replied. "who is this?"

Tuesday, April 24, 2012

How it started... Yasmeena & Wahabi 1/3


"so what?"

"so tell me why did you pick me? Weren't you in love with this Dalal girl?"

"yeah but we broke things off"

"I know that, but why am I your rebound girl? And why did you propose right away? I thought you were the kind of guy who likes to "get to know the girl" right?"

"yes yasmeen, i was that guy but I heard a lot about you and I liked what I heard so I thought I would get to know you the official way around."

"and why are you so confident that I'll approve?
Do you think you'll buy me with you money or what? Let me tell you something if my dad is being nice to your father just because they're related and were in university together, that doesn't mean he'll approve of this marriage. And I will not allow a guy who slept around and did God knows what to be the father of my children"

"Yasmeen, 3ade you calm down shway?"

"la i wont abdulwahab! Inta a9lan ur 13 years older than me! What do you want from me?"

"yasmeen, ana asif. I'll call your father now oo anhiy ilmawthoo3; ana asif 76aitich ib hal mawqif"

"thank you abdulwahab" she said with relief.

Monday, April 23, 2012

What now?

What am I really fighting in here?
Why am I questioning the relationship?
What we have is simple and clear. Is it because I left you act that way or what. I trust you with everything in my life but sometimes I feel like I shouldn't.

I don't know if you are reading this or not. I hope not. I know it sounds like my daily ramblings but now its meant to be for you. Is it because I wasn't as attach at the same time?

So now you move on to the next person?

I don't think you'd quite understand that these are for you. But they are.

Noora & S3ood


"hala.. Shlounich?"

"7mdillah b5air... You?"

"b5air damich ib5air"

They awkwardly stood looking at each other.

"Do you want to grab a cup of coffee?" he asked.

"umm laa 3ade"

"wala i insist, gahwa oo ro7ay"

"ok" she replied.

They walked to the usual coffee shop.

"So whats new with you?" he said.

"mako shay hows zaina?"

"uhhh.... Falaina il56ba" he said. "makint abe i make it official oo tiwahag wiyay"

"3ade as2al laish falait'ha? You seemed perfect together"

"lana shes not you noora! Ana abeech intay oo '39abtena ninfi9l! Intay lee ana oo ana lich laish matabeen tifhmeen!"

"la t9ar5 s3ood! Why are you screaming at me?!" as she finished that sentence she started crying. "lo ana ma27bik chan ma6lbt ina ninf9l! Do you want me to be selfish?"

"ee i want you to be selfish... Just for once can you not be selfless? I want you. I miss you." they both stayed silent for a minute. "asif 9ara5t tawmisa3"

"I miss you more sa3oody"

"May I get a hug?"

"la" she replied instantly.

"3ade nitzawaj again?"

"s3ood... Ilzawaj moli3ba."

"adre noora walla adree... Bas laish ma7ad yifhamne ina I want you no matter what laissh??!"

"lana sooner or later you'll expect me to give you something I can never give you"

"ana rathee... Nina itha allah mokatiblina hatha n9ebna."

"remember when we were in high school and you used to talk about our children? I will never forget that s3ood. I will never forgive myself."

"you said it yourself Nina.. OUR children.. You and I. Mo ana oo wa7da thanya"

"I miss waking up to your voice"

"I miss everything about you 7abebty"

"I need a bear hug"

"Come to papa" he gave her the biggest hug. Its been a year since their divorce. A divorce both of them didn't want. But she thought that would be the best for them.

Missing you

I miss you
I miss talking to you
I miss everything about you

but I dont want you to come back
I dont want to live through that heartache once again

I miss having you in my life 

Friday, March 16, 2012

Is This Love?

Every time I see you I fall in love, even though I don't know you.
I want to have endless conversations with you
Even a smile would do.
I dont know how I feel towards you, but every time I remember you my heart smiles.
I wish you knew, but I'm glad you don't..
because what if you don't feel the same way towards me.
living in a fantasy of you & I isn't enough but it will do.

I miss you even though the time we spent together was less than a minute.
I want you for me, I also want you to want it too.
Why are you doing this to me?
Will we have a happily ever after?

Is this love?


And then he gives me a smile that just seems so genuinely sweet with just the right touch of shyness that unexpected warmth rushes through me

Every time I read this quote my heart melts because I remember you. and your breathtaking smile

Trust. Faith. Belief.

For some reason I have been questioning everything these days. I don't know who is lying and who is truthful. Everything has been going up and down like a roller-coaster, but you my friend have been my only constant. I don't know why I trust you and have faith in you when I don't even trust myself. I don't why i believe in you. Is it because of your eyes? Because the language of your eyes is phenomenal. Or is it your smile? A smile thats worth a thousand words.
I think it is because of something you said that day, something really important and meaningful.
But i sit here writing this and wonder I sit here and ask myself why do I trust you?

Ps. I wish you to read this and know how i feel.

I Want To See You Again

Every day i think of you and I remember that moment. A second that kept me hanging for all this time. Am i supposed to expect something from you? Why do i miss you? Why do I want more from you?

Your eyes said it all. The way you smile, the way you talk simply made my year. I want to have that moment on repeat, with you and only you.

I miss you and I barely know you.

"hayoonaaa?! Ishhal mufaj2a il7ilwa! Mita rija3tay min florida?" Huda ('3zlans mother) asked.

"halla hudaa halla 7abebti haha shiftay shloun il3yal kibrit! Wala raj3a 7ag Sulaiman, shlounkum? Sha5barkum? Ohh anfaal shlounich shloun li3yal? Hala samar hala 7abebti, shloun ildinga ma3ach? Walaa walhaneen 3alaikum" as Haya replied with the greetings and small talk; they talked for about 10 mins while drinking tea and biscuits.

Sulaiman wasnt listening to a word they were saying. He just wanted to see '3zlan. "5alte Huda?" he said.

"hala 7abebe?"

"ila wain '3zlan manzlat"

"waaay mista3yel ilwalad, i9br shway saloom fashaltna" Haya instantly replied.

"ee ya7ilwaaa, ka al7een tajhz oo tanzil"

His face became red, his mom embarrassed him so much.

i... Sharon... The Nanny... *16*

'3zlan went home shocked with slaimans reaction. She went home really disappointed, tomorrow is a new day she thought. She was going to go get a cute dress.
She sent Reema a message that tomorrow morning they are going for brunch then shop.

Morning came and '3zlan went to pick up Reema. She was hoping not to see Sulaiman, to her luck as the driver pulled up to their house and Sulaiman was playing with lama in the garden. She stayed in the car and waited for Reema to come out.

"9ba7 il5air," he said as he opened the door.

"hi," she replied with a fake smile.

"whats wrong gills? Are you ok?"


"gills golele ishfeech," he said as he got closer.

"slaiman please latgarib yami. Mo n9eebi oo kaifi? Itrikne b7ale"

"ok im sorry"

He left, she waited a few more minutes and Reema came out of the house. They then went shopping. They decided to get the dress then have brunch. After all the laughs and giggles anyone could tell that deep down '3zlan didnt want this. She wanted sulaiman only and any person other than that she felt too young.

The day of the "get together" came. She got pampered up, Reema was there too. '3zlans mother and two aunts where also there. Everyone got dressed up and looked gorgeous.

He was in his house, wore his dishdasha qtra and 3gal and put on the bukhor and 3ood. He didnt believe he was doing this. No one new about it, well only one person but he didnt know if she would come or not. Just as he was going to get done. Someone knocked on the door.


No one replied, they knocked the door again.

"ohooo COME IN"

They slowly opened the door, and to his surprise it was her.
"yala jahiz inroo7?" she said with a very cheeky smile happy to see her son look like a handsome groom.

He smiled so genuinely, he was very happy to see her. He missed her so much. "um ee ee jahiz"

i... Sharon... The Nanny...*15*

'3zlan didnt know what to do with what her dad told her. She is just a child she thought and her dad wont force her into doing anything.
She slept and would think about it the next morning.

Sulaiman on the other hand didnt tell Reema that he asked '3zlans dad.

'3zlan was not supposed to tell anyone. But she told Reema anyways.

In Reemas house.

'3zlan: rayoom?

Reema: Halaa2

'3zlan: im going to tell you something you cant tell anyone. Im so mad bas i cant do anything about it.

Reema: golaayy

'3zlan: ako wa7id min 6araf baba yay ya56bne in 2 days.

Reema:WHAT?!!! Mino hatha?? No you cant do this to Saloom!

'3zlan: its not my fault! Reema madre shasawee. What if hes a good guy! What if baba and mama really like him? What if slaiman isnt serious about me. I dont know what to do rayoom.

Reema: SALOOM is serious! Ohwa gali bya56bch. He told me ibnafsa.

Reema calls suleiman on his mobile.

"aloo? Saloom wainik?! Ta3al my room now!"

'3zlan: reema?!! What the hell are you doing?! Yanaitay?!! No one is supposed to know!

Suleiman: shfeekum t9ar5oon ?!

'3zlan: nothing slaiman, mafeena shay.

Reema: shino nothing?! '3zlan tell him! Saloom wa7d yay ya56b '3zlan !

Sulaiman: ok?

Reema: ok?! Are you serious?

Sulaiman: hatha n9eebha what am i supposed to do?

'3zlan was shocked with the words that came out of sulaimans mouth, a tear silently fell on her left cheek.

"9a7," She said as she called her driver. And she left.

i... Sharon... The Nanny... *14*

"Tell me what happened!" Reema asked in excitement.

"he apologised," '3zlan replied.

"wai3 i know he did. Abe details!! Did you kiss?!"

"Reemo shhal 7ache! No he just came to me bil swimming pool, he said he missed me everyday..."


"....he apologised a hundred times. He hugged me. He told me he loved me."



"galich he loves you?!!!! Mita oo shloun oo what did you say?!"

"sawait roo7e masima3t hehehe ohwa iftishal, we had breakfast together and he kissed my forehead"

"awwwwwwww! Cutie patooties!!!"

"basss!! Inzain tell me what did you do with il3thmy? Did anything happen?"

"la we just hanged out as usual"

"3thman yisti7y wayed"

"I guess"

Months have passed and it was two weeks before graduation. Both Sulaiman and 3thman got accepted to many universities in the US. Sulaiman didnt know what to do. He didnt want to leave his siblings alone, so he was highly considering staying home.

"Rayooma," he said as he was standing by her door.

"id5al saloom," she replied.

"hi baba, i wanted to talk to you about something."

"talk. Shfeek? You ok?"

"well im graduating in 2 weeks and i dont know how im going to leave you guys here all alone"

"you wont kil our relatives are here, inta you have to go this is your future; dont ruin it because of us"

"how will I leave lamooya oo '3azooi? Tawhum zqar! I have an idea bas i dont know if you will like it"


"ishraykum tyoon tkamloon school wherever i go?

"NA3AM?!! Oo ahd kil my friends here?!"

"ee at least we will all be together and the education is better there."

"madre madre i have to think about it! This is huge! I cant decide now. Plus if i said yes does that mean we will leave in the summer and then go study there?"

"yeah this is the other thing i wanted to talk to you about. "


"umm... Ok i maybe too young for this, you too bas abe.."

"tabe shino???"

"abe a56b"

"AAAAAAAHHHHHHH!!!!!!! '3zlan?!!!!! Did you tell her?! Did she say yes?! Aaahhh mabrook! Im going to be an aunt!!! Saloooooom!" she jumped and hugged him.

"baass iz3aj rayoom, ftha7teena! Ma7ad yadre ila ana wintay!"

"ok okk im calm now! Wait arent you too young?"

"yeah i know I am, bas ya3ni ive loved her since we were children and she was there for me. And shes so mature. Bas i dont want to be to soon oo tgool la. so i came here to ask you. And if she says yes Well buy a house for all of us tro7on school oo i7na uni oo all of us together. Just brainstorming. Nothing decided on yet."

"inta il7een why are you marrying gills? Lana its the right thing?"

"LA rayoom ana I love gills bas i dont know if its too soon to ask her to marry me."

"this is too serious, think about it. 9al isti5ara and see. Hathe mo aywa7da oo hatha mo li3ib salomm."

"inshallaah thank you rayoom"

"youre welcome."

Sulaiman didnt know what to do. He didnt want to wait till they graduate from uni because he knew he wanted to have a relationship with her.

"aloo ta3al baitna baklmk ibmawthoo3" sulaiman told 3thman on the phone.


"bas ta3al"

"inzain yalla masaft 6reej"

3thman cane over. "shfeek 5alaitne aye 6ayer"

"bagolik shay bas madre shloun agolik"

"gool oo 5l9na"

"inzaiin... Abe a56b"

"KAAAAAAAAK!!!! Int shift wayhik? Tawik yahil! Oo mino sa3eedat il7ath? 3sa mo gill bas?"

"ya3ni mino bitkon? Ba3dain ana mo yahil!"

"saloom gills would need someone to take care of her mo li3ba zawaj hatha!"

"wana when did i ever not take care of her?! Ahtam feeha akthar minik"

"wala madre... As2alik il 2ahal ashoof shigolon?"

"la ana bas2al"

"bas bagoolik if you really want to do this yeeb omik lana '3zlan would want that"

"latyeeb 6areeha"

"fakir feeha"

After a few days of thinking he called her father to ask '3zlan hand for marriage. He convinced the dad that it was not a game and he was serious. He explained his plan where all his siblings are going to live with each other. The father wasnt completely convinced. Although he loved suleiman he had to think about it and get back to him.

After a few days was his graduation. Her dad didnt call him back. He was really anxious to know what will happen. '3zlan noticed something weird but didnt say anything.

The day of his graduation her dad told him that he approves but they have to ask her first. Sulaiman and her father decided on a plan.

"aloo hala 3ami," sulaiman made a phone call.

"slaiman?! Halla yuba! 3ash min sima3 hal 9oot! Sha5barick? Shloun 5wanik oo 5watik?"

"l7amdilaah kilna b5air, 3ami umi haya mawjooda?"

"ee kahe dgeega bas"

"aloo hala slaiman" haya answered the phone.

"hala, shlounich?" he really didnt want to talk to her.

"il7amdillah b5air"

"shloun iljaw 3ndkum"

"slaiman 5al9ne shba'3ait?"

"abeech trj3een likuwait"

"oo laish inshalla?"

"lane ba56b '3zlan oo mara7 twafiq ila itha ana wiyach t9al7na"

"oo bas chithi ibta56b? Matis2lne wala tshawrne?"

"laish ashawrich 7alich 7al il'3areeb, ana gitlich min thak ilyoum ina intay mo omy. Oo intay tadreen ina mo dag 3alaich min nafse. Oo lo kint ba56b wa7da thanya chan 5athait 5alte Huda. Ana dag 3alaich 3ashan '3zlan. Ilmohim 3ugub 3 tayam ana ray7 a56bha. Itha btyeen 7ayach allah. Atwaqa3 itdleen baitna. Ma3asalama" and he ended the call.
He hated that he talked to his mother that way but he hated what she did to him way more.

Bu 3thman called '3zlan into the office. "'3zlan ta3alai yuba bakalmich ibmawthoo3"

She went running to his office, "halla yuba"

"baba adree ina tawich zqeera, bas fe nas taw 56boch mini, shafoch oo sm3aw 3anich. Wayed yimdi7oon feech. Shrayech?"

She was shocked. She didnt know what to say, "um la baba, ana tawne wayed zqera"

"ohwa 5osh walad 7abebti oo wayed ymd7oona, intay shofee oo ba3dain qariray"

"mabe baba! Please mabe!"

"inzain ish5asrana itha shfte? Mani qa9bich 3ala shay"


What do you think '3zlan is going to do?
How will she react? Will his mother come back?

The new post is almost ready. ;p

i... Sharon... The Nanny... *13*

She turned around and found him approaching her. She looked away, she didnt want to face him. 

"hi," he said. 

She didnt say anything. He stayed quite for a few minutes. 

"I miss you every single day" 

She kept quite, while she was burning from the inside. 

"I'm sorry Ghizlan, I really am"

"ok," she replied. 

"thats it? Thats all you have to say?!"

"i dont have to say anything slaiman, if you dont like what im saying please leave. Im sick and tired of you treating me this way."

"how do I treat you? What did I do?"

"what did you do? Youre really asking that question?"

He kept quite, her eyes were filled with tears, but she looked away so she wouldnt cry. 

"you broke your promise," he finally said. 

"excuse me?"

"you broke your promise, just like her. You said you'd be by my side and you broke your promise. You told me youd tell me everything thats bothering you and you broke that promise too. I dont have time for people who break promises, and I didnt want to get hurt." 

"I was jealous you didnt hang out with me that day. I came back to you minutes later but you kicked me out. You kicked me out! You left for two years, two years we are in the same school and we never talked. I'm not the one who broke the promise, you did! Shloun ihon 3alaik chithe itsawe fene and you know what you mean to me?"

"I'm sorry"

"I'm sorry isnt enough"

"what do i mean to you," he said taking her by surprise. 


"what do i mean to you?"


"tell me the truth"

"what truth?"

"do you miss me the way i miss you?"

Her heart started racing, she just wanted to hug and be with him forever. Although she was young, she just wanted to be there for him. 

"you know i would ask lama everyday how youre doing?" he continued. "after that day i was worried you hated me '3zlan."

She just sat there with her tears falling. she looked away so he couldn't see her. 

"you know she moved out right? She lives fort lauterdale now. Her husband retired and they went to live there."

"yeah I know," she instantly replied. 

"is it ok if i hug you right now?"

She nudged her shoulders indicating an "its up to you". 

He smiled. Moved closer to her. And put his arms around her. She sat there leaning on him between his arms. 

They sat there for the longest time possible. 

"how are you?" he asked. 

"im ok"

"how can i make you feel great?"

"staying here forever"

"i love you."

"what?" she said. Not believing what he said. 

He quickly realised what he said, "i wont leave you"

They stated there for a while and then she dozed off between his arms. He took her to her room and tucked her in. He closed her door and went to sleep in 3thmans room. He didnt check his phone because he left it in the car. 
The next morning came and '3zlan woke up only to find her self in bed, she remembered what happened yesterday; she couldnt stop smiling. She missed him so much. But then she remembered that she slept between his arms but she doesnt remember what happened after that. She quickly got out of bed took a shower. Did her hair. Wore cute short shorts and a flowery top. She rushed out of the room and down the stairs thinking that he was sleeping on the couch. But she didnt find him there. 
So she went to the kitchen and asked marlyin if he was still here. She told her that hes still sleeping at 3thmans room. '3zlan told Marlyin to get breakfast ready. And she went to living room,  looking through magazines waiting for suleiman to wake up. 2 hours passed and he was still asleep, she decided to go wake him up since she was bored. 

"slaiman, slaiman.............. Yalla wake up" she whispered. 

he slowly opened his eyes and looked at her.  "good morning beautiful" he said with a cheeky smile. 

She blushed, "morning."

"How was your sleep?"

"hehe good, you?"

"it was great, bas there was only one thing missing"

She knew what he was going to say, she was also afraid that it wasnt what he was going to say. So she didnt bother asking. 

"yalla goom wash up, breakfast is waiting for you"

"yalla kani... Nizlay wana shway wanzil"

"ok" she was walking towards the door. And he said

"you look very beautiful today btw"

She was blushing and her face became red, "thank you"

He went to take a shower and changed to some of 3thmans clothes and went as quickly as possible down to eat breakfast with her. 

Even though they didnt speak for 2 years, it felt like they never left each others side. 
He kissed her forehead. "yala nakil?"

"yalla" she replied. 
They sat on the couch with the food in front of them. They talked and flirted. They were the happiest two people on earth. Just like his parents when his dad was alive. 
"you know..." he said. 

"what?" she asked. 

"since we were young you were always so mature and understanding"

"you too"

"well i have to be since i take care of my brothers and sisters, bas intay you can be daloo3a bas youre not"

"i hope thats a good thing!"

"it is" he smiles genuinely.  "ohh! Nisait adg 3ala il baje! Do u know where they are?"

"umm laa madre i didnt see my phone, should i call rayoom?"
