‘Oh my god, stop my stomach is hurting’
I laughed at one of Rafay’s jokes.
‘Come on you haven’t even heard the
punch line yet’. Rafay turned out to be
one of the friendliest people I have ever
met. There was so much life in him. As
soon as I met him in advertising class, I
knew we’d get along and I was right.
‘Shhh the prof is here’ I told him and
turned on my laptop to start writing my
Rafay was a decent looking guy. He was
tall, had short brown hair, ivory skin and
a kind smile. He was totally the type of
guy Sobia would fall for.
‘Okay I shall continue my story after
class’ He was a goofy guy, but was very
smart. After the class ended we decided
to sit outside near the bleachers since
the weather was nice. October’s sun
was out and it was nice and warm. All
the leaves were stripped down from the
trees and now were making a crunchy
sound beneath our feet as we walked
across the field to find a nice calm area
‘Okay let’s get this started’ I pulled out all
of my previous notes and handed to
‘You can use my notes to catch up with
all the work you missed.’ I offered him
my notes and he began jotting down all
the key concepts into his notebook.
While Rafay was taking notes, he told me
about his family, his mother passed
away when he was young, his father
didn’t marry anyone after and raised
him and his young brother all by himself.
I also shared a little about my life, I told
him about my mother, my brother and
my best friend Sobia, but left one very
one person out, my dad. I don’t want to
talk about him with anyone. He wasn’t a
‘Okay all done, thanks Laila’.
‘No problem, I guess you don’t need my
tutoring classes anymore’.
‘No I still need help, besides we can
always work or our class assignments
and stuff together.’
‘You sure? You don’t have to’.
‘I am sure, besides I don’t know anyone
‘Okay sounds good, you are actually
smarter than I am so I guess you’ll be
the one tutoring me’ it’s true, Rafay was
always participating in class discussions
and got along with all the professors.
‘I would love to pass down my wisdom
to you’ He laughed.
We packed our stuff and started walking
back inside the college to grab our stuff
from the lockers.
My locker was on the second floor and
his was on third, I insisted on going to
my locker but Rafay insisted in walking
with me to my locker so we could talk
some more. At least now I have one
friend in college.
We made our way to the second floor
and saw Farid and some of his friends
standing close to my lockers. I instantly
felt shy and wished he wouldn’t notice
but I was dead wrong. As soon as I
approached my locker with Rafay,
Farid’s eyes snapped up on both of us.
He was holding one of his many
girlfriends by the waist, I felt disgusted
by him and all the girls who let him use
them like that.
As soon as he saw my face, I think he
could tell I was disgusted because he
instantly let go of the girl and stood up
straight. I turned my back towards him
and continued my conversation with
Rafay who was not bothered with Farids
Rafay and I continued our chit chat, and
I offered to walk with him to his locker
because I was afraid if Rahay leaves me
here on my own, Farid is going to make
some kind of comment to embarrass me
in front of his friends.
The girl who was standing with Farid
was a very beautiful girl; she had
beautiful red hair, tall, had a lot of
cleavage showing and was laughing at
everything he was saying. She was
pretty good looking, but seemed like a
total bimbo. Poor girl, you can do so
‘What are you thinking about?’ Rafay
interrupted my thoughts as we walked
down to his locker.
‘Nothing, I am just thinking about one of
my assignments that’s all’.
‘Don’t forget to submit your
authorization forms to Mr.Charlie before
you go home’ He reminded me.
‘Oh yes, that’s for reminding me I am
gonna go right now, catch you later.’
Thank god he reminded me or else I
would have missed the last date of
‘Should I wait for you?’ Rafay yelled from
‘No that’s okay I will see you tomorrow’
I rushed back downstairs to find
Mr.Charlie before he leaves. Finding his
office was quite easy but the
receptionist told me to wait because he
was busy with other students so I
patiently waited for him in the waiting
room. Meanwhile, I saw Farid and his
crew walking heading out but as soon
as he spotted me in the waiting room,
he stopped and said something to his
friends. He kissed the girl he was with
right in front of his friends passionately,
and the girl didn’t seem to care as well.
Talk about PDA.
I looked down instantly, and took my
phone out to play some games to kill
some time instead. After a while,
Mr.Charlie stepped outside his office
along with a Chinese girl who was
probably my age and her mother. After
the girl and her mother left the office,
Mr.Charlie asked me to come in. I gave
him all the paperwork and my direct
deposit information. After everything
was set, I felt the office.
I was on my way towards the bus stop
when a black Volvo stopped right in
front of me in the parking lot. I didn’t
know who it was, but before I could
even guess, the window in the car rolled
down and I saw none other than Farid.
He was alone in the car. I wonder where
his friends and that “special girl’ was?
He was still looking ahead, not looking at
I moved around his car and continued
walking. Why does parking lot have to
be so goddamn big? I didn’t reach far
when which I heard him unlock his car
door. I started walking a lot faster, afraid
that he might catch me if I don’t fasten
up the pace.
It took him less than a minute to catch
up with me.
‘Are you ignoring me?’ He asked while
trying to keep up with me.
‘I am talking to you Laila’ Gosh, why is
he so demanding. I am not going to give
in. I didn’t answer any of his worthless
questions and continued on walking. He
was being ridicules.
‘Stop’ He yelled so loudly that a couple of
people near the stop sign turned around
to look us.
‘Stop making a scene’ I finally stopped,
but didn’t look at him.
‘Well I wouldn’t have but you are
pushing me” He snapped.
‘I didn’t push you to do anything Farid’ I
crossed my hands over my chest and
looked bored. Honestly, he has free time
to kill but I had tons of other things to
‘Yes you did, why wouldn’t you talk to
me?’ Again being demanding.
‘Talk to you? About what?’ I laughed
‘Look at me when I am talking to you’He
crossed his hands over his chest to
mimic my posture and he was so close
that if I turned my head around to look
at him, our faces would be few inches
apart, so I kept looking ahead to avoid
‘I don’t want to talk to you about
anything Farid, can I go now?’ I gave up.
‘Our next session will be tomorrow,
after class. Meet me in cafeteria and we’ll
get started.’ He didn’t even wait for my
response and walked away. Such a
I got home and called Sobia to see what
she is up to. We talked for hours as
usual and she told me how a lot of
people from Ruba’s birthday party are
now contacting them for cake and
cupcakes orders. At least something
good came out from that night.
I also told her about Rafay and how she
would seriously be into him if she meets
him. I need to make it happen, I
promised myself. Rafay was honestly
such a decent guy, never had a
girlfriend, he is close with his family, no
trouble past, just a simple and single guy
perfect for Sobia.
After eating my veggie burger with
Sabir, we both went to our rooms. Ammi
texted to inform that she’d be running
late because she has got a new client.
There is no need for an argument with
her, even if I tell her not to take any
extra shifts, she would still take it.
Before I switched off my phone, I got a
text from Rafay asking if I got home
I replied him back saying that I did and
that my phone was on silent. We texted
back and forth for a while and said our
goodbyes for today. I was in such a
good mood after talking to my old and
new friends and then the ugly truth hit
me hard in the core. Tomorrow I have
my first tuition session with a guy I can’t
stand, the only guy who seems to get on
my nerves without even trying, the one
and only Farid Ibrahim.

I was literally waiting for Farid for more
than two hours at this point and there
was no sign of him. I was not surprised
though, it’s not like he cared about any
of this stuff. That’s it, I am going to wait
for 15 more minutes and if he doesn’t
show up, I will go home. Everyone left
the cafeteria, only me and the cleaning
lady were left. I gave up and gathered
my stuff and got out of the cafeteria.
I went to my locker to pick up my jacket
and bag so I could leave.
“Hey” Farid whispered in my ear from
behind as I was taking my stuff from the
locker. I screamed.
‘What’s wrong with you’ I elbowed him
to push him away.
‘Where are you going?’ He laughed as he
stood beside my locker.
‘We have a tutoring session, let’s go’ He
took my hand and closed my locker.
I snatched my hand away from him and
started walking away.
‘Stop touching me Fared, and our
tutoring session was 2 hours ago’ I kept
walking until Fared caught up with me
again and stood front of me, this time
He held me by the shoulder and took me
inside one of the classrooms that was
‘Let go of Fared, you are out of your
mind’ I yelled at him and tried all the
strength I had in me to let myself out of
‘Yes I am. Who was that guy with you
the other day?’ He gripped my shoulders
harder and pulled my closer.
‘What are you talking about?’ I yelled at
back and he let go of me.
I went towards the door to head out but
he was quicker than me and he closed it
shut and blocked my exit.
‘You wanna know who he is well? He is
my friend okay? Now move Farid.’ I was
beyond pissed. He showed up late today,
missed the session and now he was
questioning my friendship with Rafay.
‘He seemed more than a friend to me’ He
glared at me.
‘That’s your problem not mine.’
‘You know what I am not surprised;
when I first met you I could tell it was all
an act. You pretend to be all innocent
and sweet but that’s not who you are
What was he saying?
‘What?’ I asked him.
‘Okay let me be clear, you are here to
trap rich guys aren’t you? The guy you
were with, he seems well off. He is a
catch isn’t he?’ I can’t believe he thinks
so low of me. He was smiling down at
‘You think I am a gold digger?’ I
questioned him. I have been looked
down upon for many reasons because I
wasn’t born in a rich family but this is
the first time someone has accused me
for being a gold digger.
‘Aren’t you?’ He wants this. He wants me
to feel bad about myself.
‘Yes I am, so what? He is nice to me, and
we get along…I think we are quite
compatible. But I don’t see how it’s any
of your business. Does that answer your
question’? I fired back. If he thinks I am
that type of a girl then let it be. I don’t
owe any explanations to him.
‘Stay away from him Laila’ His tone
suddenly changed. He looked angry.
‘What if I don’t?’
‘You will have to listen to me’ He yelled
and began walking towards me. I didn’t
move back this time and luckily for me
he stopped couple of steps away from
‘Why, why do I have to answer all of
your questions Fared’ I yelled, losing my
temper yet again. But I can’t help it,
whenever I see him, something happens
to me and I become sensitive over
‘Because you are mine, Laila’ He yelled so
loudly and I almost lost my balance.
Thankfully I was standing close to the
table so I held on to that.
‘What?’ I looked at him and his eyes
were pulled together and his face was
all red. OH DEAR what did I get myself
‘You heard me’
‘I am not yours Fared, you heard me.
You are sick’ I held my forehead. My
head started hurting from all this yelling
‘I gotta go’ I ran outside and he didn’t
follow. In fact he didn’t even look back
The entire way home, I kept thinking
about his words. Why did he say this to
me? Was it some kind of a prank? Ya
Allah what just happened…should I be
worried? Should I tell someone? What if
Fared does something to Rafay? All these
questions were occupying my mind. I
didn’t realize I reached my stop until the
bus driver looked back at me. I was a
regular commuter so he remembered
‘Thank you’ I smiled at the bus driver
and stepped out and since my luck was
shining brighter than a star today, it
started raining to add the cherry on top.
I got home and Ammi was home. I took
a quick shower, changed my clothes and
after that I went to Ammi’s room where
I found her reading a book so I went up
to her, laid in her bed and put my head
in her lap. She started stroking my hair
and I instantly felt a lot better.
‘What happened?’ She asked me.
‘Just tired’ I replied back.
‘Should I make you some tea?
‘No, where is Sabir?’
‘At school practicing for his talent show
‘You sure you are okay dear?’
‘Jee Ammi, it was a long day and you
know I don’t like when it rains’
‘Yh, I forgot to tell you something? Maria
at work fell at work and injured her arm
so I will be covering her shift at the
I got up right away and looked at her.
She better be joking.
‘At Ibrahims, I told you about them
‘Yes I remember and you are not
‘Why are you saying it like that, did
Yes, their whole family is weird as hell,
except Ruba. And their son is a psycho.
‘No nothing happened, but you don’t
have to take extra shifts’ I sat on her
bed again and tried to calm down.
‘Maria had covered so many of my shifts
in the past, it’s the least I can do for her.’
What can I possibly say to change her
‘You sure? They have a big house, you’ll
‘I won’t be alone, Farah, Rimi and Josie
will be there with me’ She told me about
her other coworkers who will be there
‘Okay, for how long?’
‘Couple of weeks, as soon as Maria feels
better I will leave from there’
‘Okay Ammi, but just be careful. They are
not friendly people’
‘Hmm, I will keep that in mind my little
grandmother. Stop worrying too much’
she pulled my cheeks and went to the
kitchen. She thinks I am joking or being
worried without any reasons. Maybe I
should just tell her about Farid but then
she’ll be worried for me. I’ll just wait
some more, maybe I am getting worried
for no reason. If anything goes wrong, I
will just tell her. He is not that
dangerous, is he?

Today was the last day of university
before our autumn break starts for one
week. Thank god, I really need some
time off. One another thing I was
thankful for was the fact that I won’t be
seeing the person I loathe the most but
frankly speaking I think we won’t be
crossing each others paths from now
on. Since last week, I haven’t seen Farid
and I heard some people saying that he
left for London and took an early break.
Anyways it’s not like any of this affects
When my class finished I packed my bag
and headed towards the third floor to
find Rafay. It’s time I should introduce
Rafay to Sobia.
I took him with me to her bakery and
let’s just say I did the right thing.
‘So you’ll be coming right?’ Sobia asked
Rafay. Sobia’s cousin is getting married
in Brighton and she wasted no time
‘You sure? I mean I don’t wanna make it
awkward by coming to your cousin’s
wedding’ He was smiling at Sobia the
entire time and I felt like such a third
wheel but I didn’t care. I was shameless
and was very much enjoying witnessing
them being all shy and cute with each
‘Oh common, I am going as well Rafay.
It’ll be so much fun’ I interrupted and
Sobia sighed in relief.
‘Yeah but you know her family yaar.’
‘So what you’ll get to know them too
and besides Sobia is taking care of
everything and she is allowed to invite
‘Fine, I’ll be there besides I love wedding
food’ He laughed.
‘Oh and don’t forget about the sweets’
Sobia bragged because she will be
preparing desserts for the wedding.
‘Won’t miss it for the world’ He winked
at her and she looked away instantly
We talked some more and after a while
Sobia’s mother also joined our company
and we chatted for hours and hours
until it was time for me to head home,
while Rafay decided to stay back a little
I got home and started packing my bag
for the wedding. I know almost
everyone in Sobia’s family and they are
just as sweet and welcoming as Sobia
and her mother. Since Sabir was busy
with his talent show and Ammi was
occupied with work, they weren’t able
This week at the wedding will be so
much fun. Food, music, gathering …all of
that is so up my alley. I packed my bag
with colorful traditional clothes and
since the wedding was totally in eastern
style, I usually packed Shalwar Kameez
When everything was done, I uploaded
my last assignment for the week and
drifted into sleep.
I woke up extremely late and Sobia was
already downstairs waiting for me. I
hurried to the bathroom took a quick
shower and slipped on a chunky black
sweater and brown jeggings. I said my
goodbye to Sabir and Ammi and lifted
my heavy bag and shoved it in the back
seat. We picked up Mariam auntie along
the way and headed straight to
It was my first time in Brighton and it
was way too beautiful. Sobia’s aunt lives
in a really nice house so she prepared a
separate room for us to stay in which
was very sweet of her.
‘Please make yourself comfortable Laila’
Sobia’s cousin, Saima said as she took us
the room Sobia and I will be sharing for
this entire week.
‘Thank you for inviting me to the
wedding Saima. I am so happy for you’
‘Oh common Laila, half of the time I
speak with Sobia she talks about you. I
feel like I already know you and she told
me how you and your mother helped
her and auntie Mariam out when started
her bakery’ She took my hand.
‘If you need anything Saima feel free to
let me know I am just like Sobia, please
‘Hmm okay well I have a henna
appointment and I need my bridesmaids
ready in twenty minutes’ She laughed.
‘You want me to be your bridesmaid?’ I
was way too excited at this point.
‘Of course darling, the more the
merrier…I’ll see two of you downstairs’
Saima closed the door on her way and I
started unpacking my bag with Sobia.
Saima insisted that I should also get my
henna done and even though I tried to
fight it, I had to give up at last and listen
to the bride. The henna looked stunning
and left such a beautiful dark colour on
The entire night, all of the family
members and other guests sang songs
and ate tons of food. It was seriously so
Before going to sleep I took out my
outfit for tomorrow and hung it inside
the closet. I bought it especially for this
wedding and it was stunning. I can’t
wait to wear it tomorrow. I am so glad I
am earning now and I can afford to buy
the things I want instead of asking
Ammi for money all the time.
‘Rafay will be here tomorrow’ I
reminded Sobia when she laid on the
bed next to me.
‘I know, I am feeling so nervous…I
shouldn’t have invited him like that, he
probably thinks I am crazy’
‘He doesn’t think you’re crazy Sobia, you
are crazy’ I chuckled and she slapped my
‘You’re the worst. You know how I am
with guys…I am not like you’ She said.
‘What do you mean? It’s good that you
aren’t like me Sobia and for your kind of
information I am not looking for a
‘The way you are I doubt any weak soul
will survive against your wittiness’
‘Stop thinking about my love life and
focus on yours. Rafay is a nice guy Sobia.
I am serious, think about it’
‘Of course I know that, even Ammi likes
him Laila and you know how picky she
is when it comes to guys for me’
‘I think he likes you’
‘You think so?’
‘Good’ we laughed.
‘Where is he going to stay though? The
wedding events will go on for three
days with Nikkah, Reception and after
party’ I asked her.
‘He said one of his friends lives close by
so he will be staying at his place’
‘A man with a plan, you are lucky Sobia’ I
winked at her and she blushed again.
‘Stop talking too much, I need my beauty
sleep’ She whined and turned her head
on the other side.
‘Okay miss future bride’ I laughed to
annoy her some more. This is so great; I
didn’t even have to try to get them
together. Two of my friends might
actually be falling for each other. It’s
going to be a great week.

Since 10 am all of us in the wedding
house were running back and forth to
get the things done. From phone calls to
dealing with kids, taking care of the
food and running for last minute
alterations, all of us were having panic
attacks especially the poor bride who
was consistently calling to check if
everything is under control while she
was getting her makeup and nails done.
At last, around 4 pm we were finished
with everything. All the stuff was neatly
packed and placed inside the wedding
bus and now it was time to get ready.
Sobia wore a beautiful long green dress
with silver detailing and paired it with
bright red bangles. I on the other hand,
wore my red and black anarkali dress. It
was long and flowy with beautiful gold
detailing and paired it with big gold
earrings and pinned side of my hair in a
braid and secured it with a clip. I usually
leave my hair out for special occasions.
I look so different whenever I wear
eastern clothes; I wish I could wear it all
‘Wow you look stunning Laila, all the
single boys will go crazy tonight after
they see you’ Sobia blabbed on while
applying her makeup.
‘Oh stop it, I bet Rafay will go head over
heels when he sees you tonight…Oh and
did I tell you he has arrived in Brighton’
‘What?’ Sobia almost dropped her
‘You are not a bride, stop the drama’ I
picked up the brush and applied her
blush on her left cheek.
‘I am just nervous’ Oh what a hopeless
We arrived at the wedding hall and it
looked magical when we stepped inside.
The décor was to die for, the theme was
white and lilac and all the tables were
decorated with small pearls, flowers and
‘I know right, Saima is such a visionary.
She planned everything’ Saima’s mother,
Samra said to me.
‘She did a wonderful job Samra aunty,
everything looks wonderful’
Sometime later Rafay showed up with a
beautiful bouquet of flowers. As soon as
he saw us, he came over and handed
the flowers to Samra aunty, said
congratulations and instantly won over
her heart as well.
‘Asalam O Alikum Laila…Sobia’ He
couldn’t take his eyes away from her.
Rafay was also wearing a dark green
shirt inside his tux and it complimented
Sobia’s outfit so well. Maybe they did
‘He is also wearing green’ I elbowed
‘I can see that, shut up’ She elbowed me
back. Everyone was pretty much here
except the groom and his groomsman
and our lovely bride Sobia who wanted
to walk the aisle with her father so all
the bridesmaid were standing near the
altar waiting for the couple.
‘Where are the groomsmen?’ Rafay
asked us, he was still standing with us
while everyone was seated.
‘You should sit down, they’ll be here any
time now’ Sobia said calmly and he took
the seat closest to where we were
standing because he didn’t know
‘Oh here comes the groom and his
gang’ Sobia announced when the music
started playing in the background and
all the photographers gathered around
‘Akeel Bhai is good-looking isn’t he?
Sobia whispered when the groom
stepped out from the huddle of
‘Yess he is but Saima is lucky too I
mean….’ And I couldn’t finish my
sentence after recognizing another
familiar face in the crowd. Farid Ibrahim.
He was wearing a navy blue suit and a
white shirt. This time he had his hair
pushed back and beard trimmed, but he
still looked like himself.
‘Is that…?’ Sobia nearly shouted.
‘What the hell is he doing here?’ She
asked me as if I know.
‘How do I know?’ I snapped back.
‘Wait here I am going to ask Samra
When she came back I could tell there is
‘He is one of Akeel’s friends’ Sobia told
‘Why is this keep on happening?’
‘Don’t panic, just stay close to me and
ignore him okay?’
‘Hmm’ I wish it was that easy.
The groom and the groomsman finally
arrived at the stage and Farid eyes met
mine straight away.
He walked over and Sobia stood in front
of me to stop him.
‘Go back to your side’ Sobia fired at him
but his eyes were nowhere close on her
instead he dipped his head to the side
and looked at him.
‘Hello Laila’ His eyes traced every inch of
my body but I kept my eyes on the
ground the entire time. Thankfully Rafay
stood up and walked away.
‘Everything okay?’ He glanced over at
Farid and he smiled at him and walked
back to his side.
‘Yup’ Sobia and I said at the same time
before he even finished his sentence.
‘What’s up with this dude?’ He asked
‘Nothing’ I didn’t want Rafay to get
‘He is a creeper; he has been giving her
trouble lately’ Sobia told Rafay despite
me trying to stop her.
‘If he does anything, you tell me. I mean
‘Don’t worry Rafay, I can handle it but
thank you’ Rafay went back to his seat
‘Don’t tell him anything Sobia please’
‘Fine, but I promise he won’t be staying
here for long. I am going to make sure
Farid leaves as soon as possible.’
‘Common Sobia, he is Akeel’s friend.
Don’t cause any scene. It’ll pass’ I
ensured her, still feeling unsure myself.
When Saima stepped inside the hall, she
looked like a fairy. Her bright orange
dress was a killer and everyone in the
room seemed to agree.
During the Nikkah ceremony, I couldn’t
help it and started crying.
‘Ya Allah not again, Laila you have been
to so many wedding and you still cry.’
Sobia handed me a tissue.
‘It’s all so beautiful; the vows are so
special Sobia, marriage is a promise of a
lifetime and it just gets me’. I carefully
placed the tissue under my eyes making
sure not to ruin my makeup.
Rafay and Sobia were both laughing at
me for crying.
‘Not you too Rafay’
‘Sorry Laila but it is funny, it’s not your
‘Shut up, oh gosh I am such a mess’ I
laughed at my condition too, I bet all of
my makeup just melted off.
‘Go and fix your eyeliner’ Sobia passed
me her makeup bag and I head out to
use the washroom.
When I saw my reflection in the
washroom mirror, I realized that it’s not
just my eyeliner that needs to be fixed, it
was my entire makeup. I reapplied my
mascara, fixed my eyeliner, and
reapplied my nude lipstick. Once I was
sure of my appearance I stepped out
and right then I bumped into Fared.
‘You better start looking where you are
going Laila’ He steadied me.
‘I am fine it’s you who needs to watch
out’ I stepped out of his grip but he held
me hand and pulled me back in his
‘Let go or else I’ll scream’ I yelled.
‘Go ahead’ He smiled evilly.
‘I am serious’
‘Me too…but I know you won’t scream’
He whispered and brought his face near
‘I don’t have time for this’ I told him
‘Your lover is here too I see, but he is
playing his charming games on your
‘It none of your business’
‘Maybe, but you are becoming my
business Laila…don’t you remember
what I said the other day in the
classroom?’ He was testing my patience.
‘I don’t remember’ I looked away and
my hands were still in imprisoned in his
‘You wanna know why I followed you?’
‘I don’t want to know anything, let me
go.’ My voice again became shaky.
Farid moved his hands up until it
reached my shoulder and then he
turned me around so my back was
facing him. I tried to leave but he
gripped my shoulder tighter.
‘Your zip is open.’ Before I could even
protest his hands moved down my waist
and my body shivered from his touch.
‘I can do it myself’
‘You don’t even know what’s going
around you half of the time’ He sounded
pissed. His hands however felt a lot
gentle when he pulled the zipper of my
dress to the top and secured it.
‘Go’ I didn’t realize I was still standing
close to him until he said that.
‘Thanks’ I went back inside the hall and
sat with Sobia and Rafay. When Farid
entered the hall, he was smiling to
himself. I honestly don’t know what’s
wrong with him and why he treats me
like that. I have seen how he is with
other girls, he is flirty, light-hearted and
fun but whenever he sees me he goes
off and turns into a maniac.
‘What are thinking about?’ Rafay asked
‘I am hungry’ I excused myself and went
to get some food.
The food was amazing; I filled my plate
as much as I could with kabobs, rice,
yogurt and salad. It was divine.
‘Wow slow down girl’ Rafay was eying
‘Go get your own’
‘No thank you, Sobia and I had plenty of
food when you were busy doing
whatever you girls do with all the
‘Don’t be jealous of us girls’ Sobia’s
feminism sparked up.
‘I wouldn’t dare ma’am, I’ll go get us
some ice cream’
‘Ma’am huh?’ Both of laughed when I
repeated his words.
‘Hello Sobia’ Akeem Bhai came to our
table with his fellow friends, including
‘Asalam O Alikum Bhai Jaan , you look
handsome…oh by the way, this is my
best friend Laila’ Sobia introduced me to
Akeel, the groom.
‘Asalam O Alikum, congrats on your
Nikkah’ I said to him.
‘Ahh thank you Laila, you have a
beautiful name and yes I am a lucky guy’
Akeel Bhai was really sweet. The entire
time we talked, Farid kept looking my
‘Anyways it was nice talking to you, I
have to meet other guests too, see you
at the reception tomorrow.’ He walked
away with everyone but Farid stayed
‘You have a beautiful birthmark’ He
winked at me and walked away.
D--n he saw my birthmark too.
‘What just happened?’ Sobia asked me
with her eyes wide open.
‘He said you have a beautiful birthmark’
Sobia never learned to keep her voice
‘Keep it down will you? He is just making
thinks up…he is crazy okay’ I went back
to eating my food. No one has ever seen
my birthmark and the person who did is
the person I can’t stand being close too.
What is life!
