As I was lying on the couch and relaxing my mum came into the room…
Mum: Darling, do you have your outfit ready?
Me: Uhmmm…my outfit?? (Rather confused)

Me: The wedding?!? (Shocked)
Mum: My goodness Saffiya!! Mahdiya’s wedding!! Helloo darling! Its tonight!

Mum: Okayy soo are you awake now?

Mum: We leaving at 16h00…
Me: Ahhhh okay okay! (Running back upstairs)
Omw what am I gonna wear?!? How did I completely forget? Hmmmm well it is Mahdiya’s wedding after all….haha! I started raiding my closet and I just couldn’t find the perfect outfit!!
Me: Mahdiya’s wedding!!!
Zay: Its tonight! Hahaha lemme guess you forgot??
Me: Ha. Ha. Ha. Whaaaat! Noo!
Me: And you didn’t even remind me! Tsk tsk tsk!
Zay: Haha sorry darling! I’ll send you a reminder for her 1 year anniversary so you can buy her a gift!
Me: Lol, let’s be realistic here!!!
Me: Eishh! I kinda need an outfit…
Zay: Okays I’ll pick you up we can go to Menlyn or something..
Me: (sounding excited) Okay thanxx Zay!! See you in a bit!
Soo after quickly getting ready Zaydaan and I left for the malls! Haha last minute shopping trips always seem to be hmm…interesting! We chatted in the about random things until we finally parked at the mall… let the shopping begin!!! We went from shop to shop but still didn’t find anything!
*sitting down on one of the comfy chairs in one of the shops*
Me: (longgg sigh)
Zay: Lol, have patience we’ll find something :p
Me: Oooh look who’s so eager to shop! (Impressed look)
Zay: Ahh the things I do for you!
Me: I love you too :p (giving him a hug)
Zay: Hmmm so where to now?
Me: Welllll…we haven’t tried..OMG!!!
Zay: Omg??? I don’t think I’ve heard of the shop OMG! :p
Me: Nooooo! (Quickly getting up from my seat)
Me: Yessss! Where have you beeen all my day!!
Me: Its perfect! I found itttt!!! 😀
There it was the perfect dress I’ve been looking for the whole day!! It was a long purple dress with different shades of purple! We quickly paid for the dress and started walking out…
Zay: See just when you lost hope! :p
Me: Yess…ooh what are you wearing??
Zay: Ohh I have a suit 😀
We got some ice-cream and then quickly rushed back home…we got home just before 16h00…I quickly packed in my outfit and all my make-up and that and once we were all ready we left! Yayyy! Mahdiya’s wedding! Can’t wait!!! (Trying to sound enthusiastic)
We got to Joburg and went to go change and get ready by my one Aunty’s house…While we were getting ready the men went for the nikaah… After getting ready and making sure my make-up was justtt right I finally went back down… As I was walking down the stairs Zaydaan was walking passed! Gosh he looked dashing!!!!
Me: Haha! Our timing is always so perfect 😀
Zay: Yess! 😉
He escorted me to the car and I looped my arm in his! Everyone else also looked so stunning…hmm I was actually kinda looking forward to this wedding after all…the hall was very fancy, and we got to meet all the family… The wedding was going quite well and thank goodness no aunties tried introducing me to their sons!!! Cus honestly if someone did I was gonna freak out!!! They were surprisingly quiet! Lol can you believe it?!? Eventually we went to go greet Mahdiya and her new husband, his name was Azhar…
Mahdiya: Saffiyaaa! Zaydaaan! I’m so glad you guys made it!!!
Me: (kinda forcing out a smile, just then Zay elbowed me!) Dudeee! (Looking at him with big eyes) Hehe, jee! Mubarak Mahdiya! May اللَّهُ keep url together for manny years 🙂
Zay went to go talk to Azhar while I was left with Mahdiya…at first there was a little awkwardness!
Mahdiya: (breaking the silence) Saffiya…
Mahdiya: I’m realllly sorry! For everything! From trying to steal Zay away from you those many months ago till not wanting to send ur invite for the wedding!!
Me: (I was utterly shocked!!! It was actually kind of amusing! Like was this actually theee same Mahdiya??? She reallly changed!) Ohh…its okay and please make me maaf also, for everything..
Mahdiya: 😀 I already did!
Me: Wait, soo you didn’t want us to come for ur wedding???
Mahdiya: Yesss I’m sorry! I just, I dunoo!
Me: Lol! Its fine, we here now, and it was actually kinda nice burying that hatchet afterrrr soo many years!
Mahdiya: Yess, yes it was! Soo you and Zay finally!!!
Me: Yeahh, (showing her my ring)
Mahdiya: Wow! Its soo smart! I always knew he had good taste!
She showed me her ring also and we got chatting, and laughing…Zay saw and he winked at me..
We finally had to go, so we greeted them and left…at least things were sorted out between Mahdiya and I but hey at the end of the day she’s still Mahdiya!! But shame she has definitely changed!
Zay: Hmmm I see you two finallly got along! 😉
Me: Yeahh, can you believe it?!?
Zay: Well I’m glad..
Me: 😉 Oooh can we please goo sit! I’m dying in these shoes!!!
Zay: Oh wait! I’ve got an idea!!
He left with the car keys and within a minute he was back…with something in his hand!
Me: Whaaat? (It was my all stars that were in the car!!)
Zay: Here you go put them on 😀
Me: Haha! My hero!!
I put on my white All Stars and luckily my dress was long enough so you couldn’t see them! Whew! The rest of the wedding went well and before we knew it we were in the car back on our way home! What a day!!!
SPECIAL :::: *Hanna and Tasqeens p.o.v*
Everything is so unreal,it feels like a fairytale, starting off by having the best friends in the world and the cherry ontop is having that one person who will love u forever….
Atts and asad were invited for supper by his cousin…and Saf’s and Zay were gone to a wedding
Myself and Huzi wanted to treat tasqeen to some supper in sandton to get her mind off Nazeef:D
It was already past maghrib and we haven’t even started to get dne… But then just before we could go change there was a knock on the door…. Tum_Tum_Tum….. It was HUZI already(-_-)
Finally we were done and out of the house:D Sandton was a mad house especially because it was Saturday Night!
We waited 20 min to get a table at Mug&Bean… At last we ordered but then just then one of our childhood favourites walked in(-_-)
We thought we would never bump into her again but then just then there she was standing infront of us with that same look she gave us in highschool…. Like Doll get over urself those days are over:D
Tasqeen was ready to slap her but it took some of mine as well as huzi’s strength for her to sit her ass down on the chair!
Huzi was sooo confused pooor man! But we started telling him what was the bad blood between us…..
So it started of like this we had a blog and she didn’t like that so she started saying bad stuff about us and calling us names… And best of all tried to turn us against each other…. **sooo last year** but of course we watched pretty little liars and knew exactly how to play this game! She never wanted to forgive and forget and move the hell on… And till today she looks at us the same way she did 5 years ago….
Now for some happiness our milkshakes and lemon meringue pie was here:D #excitedmuch
Huzi and I shared and tasqeen had her own….. She seemed happy about that **LOL**
Tasqeen was happy with her food almost like she forgot all about Nazeef lol….
Tasqeen: Huzi are u ready for the wedding??
Hanna: huzi?? Hello??? Answer tasqeen why don’t u??
Tasqeen: who are u staring at huzi?
Huzi: **clears throat** nobody uhmm?!
Where were we??
Hanna: Don’t tell me u looking at her??
Tasqeen: Can I go punch her??
Hanna: Calm Down Tasqeen?!! And. Huzi why must u look at her??
Huzi:Because I think that’s my sister next to her….
Hanna: Sister-in-law?? Is that what I heard??? Wait what??? Nooo dude like nooo I didn’t prepare myself mentally..physically or emotionally for a sister-in-law??!!
**tasqeen dropped her milkshake**
Hanna: u just wasted a whole caramel popcorn milkshake… Like are u serious right now??
**those 2 madams (huzi’s apparently sister and our childhood frenemy)looked at us with bbbiiigggg gooogly eyes**
Huzi looked at the girl and she grabbed her bag and ran..Huzi chased after her…Hanna and I sat at the table shocked..
Tasqeen : (sarcastic)So…can I have the last slice of lemon meringue pie ?
Hanna : Go ahead…our lives just couldn’t get more complicated..but just wait,
I took Tasqeen’s hand walked over to our childhood friend and I spilled all the leftover milkshake on her and we walked away…the girl than tripped me..and than Tasqeen slapped her and than the girl threw her doughnut on Hanna’s face, Hanna got up and pulled her hair..before we knew it,the security guys were there looking at us like we crazy..
Tasqeen : Okay,we done here..
Childhood frenemy: U guys are so ugly and still single ??
Hanna : U wish,!! I’ll send u an invite to our wedding !!!
Tasqeen : And doll, my fiance is a frikking british accented guy who is perfect for ur psycho eyes to see !!
Frenemy : U talking shit !
Hanna : That’s what u think,oh and Huzi and I ended up together !!!
Frenemy : Poor Huzi,but he found his sister,and she hates u,so will he choose her or u ?
Tasqeen : Just shut up ! BYE
She picked me up and we walked to find Huzi…But woah,what if Huzi does listen to his sister and chooses her over me ??????????
When I rushed to Huzi’s house I saw Naazeef walking around stressing with his bag on the floor..
Me : Naazeef !
Naazeef : Omw Tasqeen u finally here ..
He called me Tasqeen ??? He never does…its always love …something is really wrong !!
Me : Naazeef,what the..where are u going ???????????????
Naazeef : Could u sit down u making me nervous ..
Me : U send me a message saying u leaving for the airport,and now u expect me to sit down,sit down ??
Naazeef : Fine stand,u think this is easy on me !!??????
Me : if its not than why are u leaving ??? And where to ??
Naazeef : Back..back to London, but I’ll be back sometime in Ramadhaan .I have to fix my mothers work in London, cus she’s moving here now..
Me : And..and what about us huh, I mean we getting married in September..
Naazeef : Tasqeen, all the couples are getting their wedding things ready,and I’ll be gone and u’ll feel soo lonely and I hate myself for doing this…I love u for having patience and understanding..
Me : Yeah well I love u 2 u idiot (I elbowed him)
Naazeef twirled me around into a hug and I kinda teared up..
Naazeef : But I promise when I come back I’ll come back with a surprise 😀
Me : Mmmm which is ?
Naazeef : if I told u it wouldn’t be a surprise now would it ?
Me : Fine :p
We walked out and I drove Naazeef to the airport…I really wanted to cry !!
Me : Well its time for u to go check in..
Naazeef : Yep, but wait I got something for u :p
Me : Please tell me u staying..
Naazeef : Hey I wish love ! But I got something else..

Naazeef : But first take off ur sunglasses so I can see those pretty hazel eyes..

Me : Mmmmm u better be back :p..Just give me my present now would u ?

He handed me a box and inside was keys and they had the initials T and N engraved on it…
Me : Keys ?
Naazeef : House keys !!
Me : WhaAat ??
Naazeef : I bought a house in ur town ,its for us ,for when we get married and when I get back we’ll do it up together …
Me : U kidding me !!
Naazeef : I’m not :p..I really have to go now love..
Me : But wait,what street is it in or the number atleast?

Me : Mmm okay so I’ll be house hunting then…FUN !! Now go before I don’t let u go…
Naazeef : (kissing my cheek) hey but first let me take a selfie :p
So we took a cute pic and he left..my heart sank…
I drove home and saw the girls sitting there on my bed…
Me : Heyy..I’m soo tired …
Han : What the..what’s wrong ?
Me : uhm not much but It would just be nice if I could have sometime alone or maybe uhm we could like do something rather later…?
Saf’s : Yeah,fine ! Besides Zay and I have a date…cus u know we a true couple..
Me : What , Saf’s what do u mean ?
Att’s : Yeah me 2…Asad won’t leave me..
Me : Fine,go ! Go have an awesome time,
Han : Bye !
I barged out of Tasqu’s house just like Han and Atts did! I was kinda furious and the scary thing was is that I don’t even know why!!! I quickly drove home…on the way thinking of everything that just happened! Ahhh! I got home and parked the car and immediately went up to my room! My mood just changed from calm and collected to I dunno what!! I decided to call Zaydaan…
Me: Hey Zay…
Zay: Heyy Beautiful!…What’s up you okay?? (Noticing the tone of my voice)
Me: Yeahh I’m fine…ummm I’m weeeli sorry Zay, but could we maybe move our date to another time? I’m reallly tired, its been a hectic day so far…
Zay: Haha you mean hectic morning? Its not even close to 12 o’clock darling! :p
Me: Yesss, okayy a hectic morning 😉
Zay: Are you sure everything is okay??
Me: Yeah 🙂
Zay: But okay its cool, we’ll have our date another day don’t worry!
Me: Thanxx Zay! You the best, love you!!
Zay: Love you too!
And I hung up the call…the rest of the day I spent lying on my bed, in my comfy track suit and slippers and watching movies on my laptop!! Oooh and don’t forget the Magnum ice-cream!! So yes, it was a bad day turning out to actually be a good one!! After a while, I heard a knock on my room door!!…hearing a knock on ur door while ur home alone watching a horror, isn’t one of the things you wanna hear!! After getting the shock of my life I started contemplating as to whether to open the door or not!?! It was weird cus I thought I locked all the doors and that downstairs!! I mean who knows who/maybe even what’s on the other side!!! Lol!
Me: Ummmm…who is it?
Person: Its the creepy guy from ur horror story :p (opening the door)
Me: Zaydaaaaaaaan! Do not joke around with a horror! But wait more importantly… How did you know I was watching a horror???
Zay: Don’t worry, I know…but wait more importantly…you watching it without me?!?
Me: Haha yess! And its amazing!! :p
Zay: Hmm I see… I’ll just take my pizza and chocolate milkshake back home and eat it by myself then…
Me: Wait, Pizza???
Zay: Yess pizza!! I thought since I couldn’t take you to the date, I’ll bring the date to you…
Me: Awwww!!! (Going to give him a hug) You had me at pizza 😀
Zay: Hmmmm…I know you too well!
Me: Oooh..how did you get in? I thought I locked up??
Zay: Ohhh, your mum gave me a copy of the keys 😀
Me: Hmmm…I seeee…
We spent the day having the yummy pizza and chocolatey milkshake! Ahh they were to die for!!! We sat and watched olden time movies! It was so cutee! And quite funny actually! Hehe!
Zay: Soo Saffs…….
Zay: Saffs, can you please tell me what’s wrong? You know you can tell me (holding my hand)
Zay: (warm smile)
Soo I explained the whole story to him and he just sat there and listened…didn’t say anything just listened…I guess that’s all I needed…
Zay: Soo, what are you waiting for??
Me: What am I waiting for????
Zay: Go out there you guys need to sort it out, I mean you’ll are amazing when you’ll together! You’ll complete each other!
Me: Aww Zay…(Smiling)
Zay: And besides life’s too short to be living with regrets, so take every opportunity and make the best of it! 😉
Me: You’re right Zay! Thanxx 😀 Okay, I’ll be back sooon! See you laterr! (Giving him a hug before charging off to the girls’ !!!!)
I left Tasqeen’s house with a heavy heart…I mean I hated it when we fought! But anyways, I went home and decided to take a chill pill…I laid down on my bed and paged through a couple of magazines…just then I heard the familiar sound of my phone ringing, I checked and saw it was Asad…
Asad: Salaams Atts!!! (Sounding excited)
Asad: Hmmm…How you doing??
Me: I’m okay and you??
Asad: I’m good!
*there was like a few seconds of silence! Ahhh!*
Asad: Okay Atts, what’s wrong? You okay?? I can hear it in your voice…
Me: Lol! Is it that bad???
Me: Oh goodness!
Asad: I got an idea!! Get ready I’ll see you in 5!
Me: What? Asad????
And before I could say anything else he cut the call! Ahhh Asad and his ideas! It still gives me the butterflies!
Where were we gonna go?? What kind of outfit do I wear?? What shoes??? I quickly called Asad back!
Me: Asadddd! Where are you taking me?
Asad: Its a surprisee my Atts!
Me: But pwease tell me! So then I know what outfit to wear! Lol!
Asad: Hahaha! Hmmm okayy dress in something comfy, but no heels, sorry darling..
Me: Ooooh okay! Thanxx! See you in a bit!
Hmmm….comfy yet cute! I quickly raided my closet until I found the perfect outfit and applied little make-up 😀 Right on time, 5 mins later, I heard Asad’s hooter…I told my mum that I’ll be back soon and gave her a hug and left…
Asad came to open the door for me…
Me: Asadddd, can you pwease tell me where we going?? (Batting my eyelashes)
Asad: You’ll seeeee 😀
Me: Ahhh! Okayy!
We sat in the car yet we didn’t chat soo much…my mind was still on what happened with the girls!!!
Just then I see we turn into a familiar place, Asad parked the car and we got out…Asad being Asad still wanted it to be a surprise so he covered my eyes with his hands as he led the way!
Me: Are we there yet?? I wanna seee 😀
Asad: Hold ur horses daring, almost there!!
Me: Mmmm! (We carried on walking)
Asad: Okay here we are! You can open your eyes now…
I opened my eyes and my face lit up!!!! Eeeeeep!!!
Me: Asadddd!!!! Noo way! 😀
Asad: I knew you’d love it!!!
We stood in front of one of those paddle boat things!! Asad took me to the dam and he knew how I’ve been dying to ride in those paddle boats!!! Eeeeep!
Asad: C’mon what are we waiting for???
We got life jackets and got into the mini-boat! Whew! Luckily I wore my sneakers and not my cute pumps!!!
Unfortunately there were only one seaters, so Asad went in his boat and I in mine! 😀 we pushed the boats into the water and got in!! It was all soo exciting!!! I started to paddle with my legs! Shew! It was much harder than what it looks!!! Asad and I paddled to the middle of the dam and admired the view!
Me: This is realllly nice Asad!! Thanxx!!
Asad: You’re welcome Atts! I’m glad you enjoying it…
We chatted and by now both our boats were next to each other and I looked into his eyes! He was just thee best!!! Just then I nearly topple my boat over! My phone started vibrating uncontrollably!! I checked and saw it was a message from Saffs…
“Heyy you guys! I’m reallly sorry, but I can’t go on like this, not without you’ll!! 😦 can we please sort things out?? Maybe coffee in 10?? 😀 ”
Me: Awww Asad…
Asad: I’ll drop you off, don’t worry Atts 😉
Me: But I’m reallly enjoying myself here!
Asad: Don’t worry! We’ll definitely come again! I promise 😀
Me: Okay, love youu!
Asad: Love you too! Haha race ya back to the deck???
Me: Not if I get there first!!!
Asad: I’ll take it as a challenge accepted!!!
Just then Asad and I started paddling like there was no tomorrow!! Gosh my legs were killing meeee!!! I don’t think they’ve ever moved soo qucikly before!!! It was really fun, Asad got to the deck first but hey I wasn’t so far behind…He helped me out of my boat and we left for the coffee shop…
Before I got out of the car…
Me: Thanxx again Asad!! I really enjoyed myself and thanx for taking my mind off things… (Giving him a hug)
Asad: You’re welcome darling, anytime 😉 I’ll call you later! Love you!!
I got off and walked into the coffee shop and saw Saffs was there seated…just then Tasqu and Hanna also came 🙂 we all got seated and for some reason we all started laughing!! It was soo random!!!! Yet confusing!!! I guess we all felt the same!!
Me: Hahaha! Whaa..whaaat???
Saffs: Lol I dunno!! (In between her laughing)
Tasqu: Omw, people must be thinking look at these retards!!!

Mummy: Your dad said he was gonna take it to the shop to have it fixed…
Me: He diddd and it came back and the guy said there’s no hope left for it!!! (Fake tear lol)
Me: But its okay, I understand 🙂
Mummy: That’s the spirit darling!!! (Giving me a thumbs up!)
Me: *sigh* Lemme get you some tea…
Mummy: Thanx doll (putting in a tea bag and pouring the water into her cup)
We chatted and had some yummy breakfast and then I sent Zay a bbm asking him if I could quickly use his laptop to quickly finish off my assignment…
Me: Heyy Zayy! How are you?? Soo you know that my laptop’s still not working……….
Zay: The same one you said was a “100% break-free” ??

Me: Ha. Ha. Ha…could I quickly come over and finish my assignment?

Aunty Tima: Salaams Saffiya!
Me: W.salaams Aunty Tima!!
Aunty Tima: Ooh no maaf, I was just talking to my almost to be daughter in-law (telling the person on the phone and winking at me!)
I kinda went a bit red!! And Zay was thoroughly enjoying this!!
Zay: She’s talking to Mahdiya’s mum
Zay: Here’s the laptop…lemme get you something to eat
Me: No don’t worry I just had breakfast 😉
I started typing on the laptop and was chatting to Zay… And had a glass of water to drink…
Aunty Tima: (on the phone) Ohh Mahdiya! Soo nice! Mubarak!! I’m really happy for her!
Zay and I looked at each other…
Aunty Tima: Next month? The 14th?

After a while Aunty Tima finally cut the call…
Aunty Tima: Oooooh! Urls best friend (winking at us) is getting married!!!

We walked into the house and I saw Auunty Fati sitting on the couch with a box of tissues I ran and hugged her she was crying and hugged me tight…
Me : Aunty Fati don’t cry it’s going to be okay…
Naazeef came and kneeled down next to us and held his mum’s hand ..
Naazeef : Mummy I want u to tell me clearly what happened okay ?
Aunty Fati : Okay..(She held both mines and Naazeef’s hand in hers ) Okay I was coming home from Pick n Pay and than I saw F..Faizaan standing by the door and than he said that he wanted to know if I wanted to stay in his house with his other wife and children..and he’ll look after us equally…
Naazeef : (angry) He left u 20 years ago and now he just wants u back ! Treat u equally ?? Is he crazy , he couldn’t care for u 20 years ago and now suddenly he can..
Me : Naazeef has a point Aunty Fati,but its not up to him or anyone else to make this decision for u…its how u feel …

Aunty Fati : Tasqeen,doll..let’s say u were in my place what would u do ?
Me : Uhmm..why do u want my opinion aunty Fati ?
Aunty Fati : I just want to know how u taking this or well thinking about this and like woman to woman..
Me : By what Naazeef says,and I know he has a good point but I also know how a woman thinks sometimes in this situations..but honestly if it was me ..I don’t think I have such a big heart to just forgive him like that..but Aunty Fati if u love him than..if it makes u happy than u should stay..cus Naazeef and I only want u to be happy..
Aunty Fati : How did Naazeef and I get so lucky and find u ! U so wise my dear (she kissed my forehead)
I left her to think about this and went to the kitchen…
Naazeef : What do u think she’s gonna do ?
Me : Honestly I think she’s really confused..but deep down she knows what she wants..
Naazeef : I don’t know what I’ll do if she says she’s going to stay with him..
Me : Naazeef,u’ll support her okay !
Naazeef : How ??
Me : Naazeef , let’s say u really loved me, but due to circumstances u left me and our child so u can go make some money and provide for us,and u thought we were happy without u so u settled down in another place and now after years u find me and our son hates u,but he doesn’t understand,so now because of the son shouldn’t the mother and father have their happily ever after ?
Naazeef : Wow,when u put it like that…but I’d never leave u..
Me : I know,I’m just saying,and not all people are like u and I ..everyones different..and they think differently..
Naazeef : Okay u right..
Me : And by the way let’s say if u do happen to leave me and our child I won’t forgive u, remember I don’t have that big of a heart :p
Naazeef : (smiling) I won’t , in all circumstances I’ll take u with me okay !
He hugged me and I smiled
We heard the doorbell and we peeked through the door and saw uncle Faizaan by the door..
Naazeef held my hand and tried to be calm and rational about this..
Aunty Fati : Naazeef and Tasqeen,come here..
Me : (whispering)Hahaha ur mother knows us too well ..
We walked into the lounge.
Me : السلام عليكم و رحمة الله وبركاته Uncle Faizaan..
Uncle Faizaan : و عليكم السلام و رحمة الله وبركاته Tasqu,how u ?
Me : I’m okay shukr and u ?
Uncle Faizaan : Shukr I’m okay..
I elbowed Naazeef to greet uncle Faizaan..but Naazeef,being Naazeef just stood there..
Uncle Faizaan : How are u Naazeef ?
Naazeef : I could be better..
Me : Naazeef !
Aunty Fati : I have reached a decision..
After much thought…I decided that I will stay with Faizaan..and be his wife and fulfill my duties as his wife..
Naazeef and I stood there in silence,shocked mostly…uncle Faizaan hugged aunty Fati and they cried..
Naazeef fell onto the couch his face in his hands..I sat down next to him and just stroked his arm…
Aunty Fati : Tasqeen,Naazeef what do url say ?
Naazeef (sniffing) I hope u 2 will always be happy together..
Me : Jee,may Allah grant url happiness and keep url united..
Aunty Fati hugged us both..as uncle Faizaan was coming to hug Naazeef , Naazeef took my hand…
Naazeef : Well we gotta go..
He led us out the house…
When we got my house and saw my mum talking to Aunty Fati..
My mum : (on the phone) Okay see u later Fatima…and I’m happy that u’re happy..
She hung up and saw the look on Naazeef’s face,she hugged him and he cried,she told him everything will be okay..after a while she left with my dad to go to aunty Fati’s..Naazeef told her to make an excuse saying him and I were gone somewhere..hesitantly my mum agreed…
Me : Naazeef,u okay ?
Naazeef : I guess so,I just hope my mum will be okay..
Me : She will,
Naazeef : One things for sure,I’ll never see that man as my father,
Me : I know u won’t , but could u atleast try to be happy for ur mum ?
Naazeef : Yes that I’ll do….
We had coffee, sitting on the couch..
Naazeef : Tasqeen,
Me : Yes zeeffyy
Naazeef : (smile) Thnx ..
Me : Thnx for ?
Naazeef : Everything !! If u weren’t here i can imagine what I’d do ..
Me : Well..u welcome :p…ahh I’m soo tired..
I put my head on Naazeef’s shoulder..
Naazeef stroked my arm ..
Me : (yawning) Are u going to stay by Huzi’s today ?
Naazeef : (laughing at my tiredness) Yep ..
Me : (yawning again) Oh okay,but don’t leave me now ..stay here till my mum gets back..
Naazeef : Don’t worry I’m right here..
He kissed my forehead and before I knew it I was asleep…I woke up the next day and found myself in my bed and I looked at my phone and saw a 10000 messages from Naazeef saying : Love Meet me at the Huzi’s house 10am sharp , I’m leaving for the airport at 13:00..I’m sorry Love I have to leave u,but I’ll be back I promise..I’ll explain everything once u get here…
Was he kidding me !!!!!!!!! Where was he going….I looked at the time and it was 9am I quickly got ready and left for Huzi’s house..
