Subhanallah, I even miss the mattress I used to sleep on and it is only been a day!
I cried quietly all night, I hoped that Asha had not heard my sobs
They took out this inflatable bed with legs and everything
We all woke up Fajir time and prayed together, and then we all went back to bed.
MAYBE I SHOULD START COOKING BREAKFAST
OR CLEAN THE TOILETS
I really am a weirdo!
A weirdo who loves cleaning__
Or is it cooking?
Do I love cleaning or cooking more?
But I have GOT to stop doing that!
Inshallah I will stop it recently__
Or is it soon?
Or is it, I will stop it in the recent future__
In the recent future, I will stop it soon_
Or is it__
YA ILLAHI, SOMEONE BETTER STOP ME NOW
“Good morning Habiba. What are you doing up so early sweety?” Asks aunty Halima.
I just feel so embarrassed and scared about they would say if they knew__
About how I was a nobody, with no past and no future__
My heart breaks to pieces at the thought of marriage and kids__
She kept coming closer and closer to the plate__
And that moment ended when__
And that moment ended when__
“Subhanallah, that girl is useless Habiba I’m telling you!” she tells me breathlessly.
She sits down to catch her breath, and then she turns around to face me.
“Oh and Habiba?” She says it suddenly.
“Yes?” I reply anxiously.
Asha comes out of the bathroom, and immediately ravishes the Loho hos
DADA FAWZIYAH!! I wonder how she’s doing?
I’m gonna make sure that I visit her as soon as the ward open for visiting hours__
But I feel a little guilty about the guys sleeping at Dada Fawziyah’s house
I wonder who is cooking for them!!
We arrive at the house at 7 am, with Asha greeting us at the door.
“Oh it’s you lot!” She greets us, rolling her eyes.
“Nice to see you too sis!” I say it sarcastically.
“WATCH IT!” screams Asha after him.
Me and Ahmed decide to go and find mum.
I wonder how she is doing after the night she had?
She always seemed sad__
She would smile, but you can tell that she is hiding tons and tons of pent up emotions.
Not today. Today, she actually seems like she is smiling and she really means it.
Who thought I could see all that from a glimpse, I’m such a psychiatrist Mashallah
“What are you guys reading?” I ask, thinking who lifted who now?
At this point, Ibrahim and Asha walk in the living room where we are all seated.
“What is she talking about now?” Asks Ibrahim, with his mouth full of food.
“HOW DID SHE KNOW THAT??” Asks Ibrahim, looking surprised and shocked
“So it’s true?” I ask him.
“So who is this girl??” asks my mum curiously
“She’s gonna be my future wife Inshallah” Replies Ibrahim proudly.
“WHAT??” The question coming from all of us, including Habiba
Ibrahim has always been reckless, but this is too much
Poor Jawahir! You can see that she is trying to hide the sadness in her eyes with a smile
We all go our separate ways after that announcement, it is as if a storm is brewing from far__
I just do not feel comfortable about this, I do not know why?????
So the boys remain in her house, while I stay here and she does not mind.
But I do miss the girls so much
What happens the next minute is so weird and so sudden that I cannot explain the reason for it.
I suddenly remembered the EXACT conversation in my past__
Two people arguing the same way Asha is arguing with Mohamed
“Habiba? Are you OK? You don’t look too well,” asks Asha concerned.
“What did you remember?” she asks, while Mohamed looks on curiously
So I did just that, thinking maybe they could help me remember my past__
Very strange indeed
Meanwhile in a house not far away from the Abdalla family’s house__
“You have my word and support,” Yusuf replies, shaking hands with Saydi!
The union of these three men CANNOT be good
