Another Love Story (part 10 Finale)

“sara?? Sara ma ghairha? Sara ili baghat t5areb baini oo baina?! How could he sink that low? Does he know how cheap she is?! Yadri inha kalemat flan oo 3elan? yadri inha.. istaghferelah mabi a7e6 ib themeti..”

“ee 3ashan tadri 3an sowalifha oo sya3at’ha!”

Mother: wee wee wee! inzain o meta ib ya56ebha.

Mays: madri wala yuma bas lail7en mo aked 7achi bas.

Mother: eeeeh zain ashwa.

And she looks at Lamees with sympathy in her eyes, Lamees thought she had imagined it. “She couldt feel sorry for me, it was because of them that my dream shattered into pieces.”

A week later, Lamees was in her car on her way to her friend’s house. Her phone rang, she saw the number. Without thinking she hit the flasher o ra7at 3ala 7arat il amaan. She stared down at her phone, in shock not believing what she was seeing. It was bader calling her. Then it stopped ringing. “Did that just happen? She kept on staring at it, why would he be calling me? isnt he getting married soon? Was he going to say goodbye? I’m not up for that!” She jumped when her phone vibrated in her hands, it was a message from him.

Bader: Sorry dagait 3aalaich, i could understand why u wouldnt want to talk to me, bas abi akalmich.

Without thinking, she called him back. It rang once.

Bader: aloo!

As soon as she heard his voice, a tear fell on her cheek, “i missed him”.

Bader: alo?

Lamees: halaa.

Bader:….

“why did he go quiet? Did he feel the same way? Hah! i doubt, Lamees he forgot u, hes getting married.”

Lamees: alo?

Bader: shlonich lamees?

Lamees: il 7imdela, inta shlonik?

Bader: zain….

Silence, she could tell it was as hard for him as it was for her.

Bader: wainich?

She just realised that she was parked on the side of the highway.

Lamees: ray7a bait refejti, laish?

Bader: la madri, met3awed as2elech hal so2al.

Lamees: shbaghait bader?

Bader: madrii lamees min wain abdii…

Lamees: inta awal 7el moshkeltik weya bint 5altik awal!!!

Bader: lat5afeen in7alat.

Lamees: lail7en a7isik chathab bader. o mani gadra asadgik.

Bader: ana chathab?

Lamees: ee.

Bader: yeslam rasich lamees, bas bathbetlich ini mo chathab.

Lamees: ok yala ma3a il salama.

Bader: bye.

“What the hell have i done?! Why am i talking to him that way!?” She started crying so hard, that she couldnt see what was infront of her. She managed to get to her friends house, called her friend that she was outside, not knowing how her friend understood what she said mid-sobs. Her friend came running down, and saw lamees get out of her car her eyes and nose were bloodshot red. She ran and hugged lamees, and she collapsed in her arms.

Two days later Lamees was sitting in the living room, staring at the TV. She was still a body without a soul, she was a zombie. Her mother came and sat down next to her.

Mother: Lamees, intay mkalma bader?

Lamees: Ha? Laish?

Mother: oma dagat mara thanya.

“Bathbetlich ini mo chathab”

Lamees: Laish?!

And her mother smiled with tears in her eyes.

Mother: ya56ebech mara thanya.

Without thinking Lamees threw herself on her mothers lap and started crying, and screaming.

Lamees: Yuma alaah i5aleech wafqaaay! Yumaa alah i5aleeeech! allah i5aleekom yuma 7isaw feeeni! Yuma matadreen shkether i7ibni wa7ebaa! Wala il 3atheem 5osh wa7ed! laish matsadgooniiii??? Walaaa yuma i7ibniiiii! Alah i5aleech yuma lata7remoona min ba3ath! 7aram 3alaikom!!!!!!! ili sawaitoooh feeni mo shwayaaaa!!!!! 7araaaam 3alaiiikoooooooooooom!!

She looked up and her mother was crying too.

Mother: obooch mara7 yertha Lamees.

Lamees: ana akalmaaa!! wala ana akalma!

Mother: La 5aleeni ana akalma.

She couldnt believe her mother was saying that, she stared right through her eyes, “was she joking? ga3da ta5ethni 3ala gad 3agli wela shno?”

Lamees: shno?

Mother: ana akalma.

Lamees: intay mwafqa?

Mother: La, bas mo raftha. Wlani meste3eda ashofich chethi baji 3umrich.

Lamees jumped up and hugged her mother so hard. “Mo raftha! aham shay inha o raftha!!”

The next couple of days were not easy, everyone found out, her brothers and sister. Her aunts and uncles, everyone had a different opinion. Her brothers and father didnt talk to her, and her sister and aunts were on her side along with her mother. This was the final battle in this war. Everytime she saw her father she started begging him with her eyes, she flaunted her tears infront of him, just so that he would feel sorry for her and change his mind. But this time, it was different, she had hope. Her mother was with her, she had even spoken with Bader, talking about religon and everything, Oo Bader already gayel ina ohwa meste3ed ighayer mathheba 3ashani, o i3yalna ikonon 3ala mathhabna, Lamees didnt like that. She wanted him to have his own beliefs and out of that they’d manage and they would work it out. But he seemed to convince Lamees’ mother. And she was fine with that, just as long her mother was fine too.

Lamees didnt stop trying, she tried and tried and tried……….








































_________________________________________________________________________________________________

2 years later, Lamees got married, and had just found out that she was pregnant. She was hysteric and called her mother.

Lamees: yumaa.. (crying and laughing at the same time)

Mother: haw shfeeeech?!

Lamees: yumaa barkeeeliiiii…

Mother: shno mabrook? 5air inshala. 5ara3teeeniii yuma!

Lamees: yuma ana 7aamil..

Mother: (tyabib) ba3ad 3umrii 3al baraka! ya galbii wala bshara hathiii.. (and she starts crying too)

Lamees: inzain bas ne6ray latgooleen 7ag a7ad ok.

Mother: ee la akeed, intay shlonich al7een 3asa mako lo3a o do5a?

Lamees: la yuma il 7imdela ūüôā

Mother: alf il 7imdela, waay yafar7eti wala lo agol 7ag oboch ib yestanis ūüôā

Lamees: 5alas yuma ana basakra al7een. akalmich ba3dain ok?

Mother: 5alas inshala, ta3alay moreena 3ad.

Lamees: inshala, yala bye.

Mother: ma3a il salama.

As soon as she closed the door, her husband walked in. And her heart started beating, so fast, and tears ran down her cheeks. She was smiling too. Her husband walked towards her looking concerned.

Lamees: Bader, ana 7amel.

Another Love Story (Part 9)

“What? How could he be that reackless! How could he not tell me! 7a6ni jedam il amr il waqe3! I cant believe he did that”

Lamees: oo laish matwafqon ya3ni?

Mother: oo laish awafeq! awalan o oho il aham ohwa mo min mathhabna! 3abalich ba5alech mithil i5tich! la 7abeebti sim3ay kalam omich o sem3ay nasee7ti o i5thay wa7ed min mathhabna! aham shay il deen tara!

Lamees: bas yuma ana abeeh!

Mother: Yanaitay? shtabeen eser fe oboch o i5wanich tara ma7ad bewafeq!

Lamees: yuma ohwa 5osh wa7ed!

Mother: Lamees! tkalmeena sa7!?

Lamees went quiet, she had to tell her mother the truth.

Mother: itha itkalmeena 3irfay al7en intay ga3da tthay3een wagtich! oo ta5seren ahalich fa a7sanlich insa7bay. Ya i7na ya oho!

Lamees fell into a deeper hole, omha sakerat kel el beeban ib wayha. But she didnt give up she kept trying, and trying for days and weeks and months. But when the problem grew, her father found out. He wasnt happy with his favorite child, she was always his favorite and hated to dissapoint him. But this time she crossed the line. And like her mother, sakar kil il beeban ib wayha. She had only one thing to do. To break up with bader, and break both their hearts.

It wasnt easy, infact it was one of the hardest thing she had ever done. It felt like she ripped her own heart out and stepped on it repeatedly. And what made it harder was, the last word she heard him say “Karahtich”.

She believed that, even if sounded fake she beleived it, cuz she hated herself too. She tried to be his friend, she tried to be there for him. But everytime she tried he drew further and further away. Now she was convinced that he hated her, just as much as she hated herself.

She saw him occasionally after they broke up, but he was cold, colder than ice. He wouldnt even look her way. She felt weak and defeated, she still loved him. And wondered how could he stop loving me that easily. She spent months and months crying herself to sleep, she wasnt alive, her parent felt guilty and treated her even better than before, they got her anything she wanted, the even got her a new car. But that didnt make her happy, she walked around like a lifeless creature, lurking in the halls, she kept herself busy with anything, and she got better grades and managed to raise her gpa and get on the honors list. Even THAT didnt make her happy, she even got a scholarship to get her masters abroad. THAT! didnt even make her happy eventhough it was another dream come true. But the dream she always wanted, will never come alive.

A year later, also on valentines day. She went out with her mother and sister, they were talking casually. And ofcourse her mother pulled out the marriage card.

Mother: inshala i5tich tetzawaj madri shna6ra ta5arejat o kil ma wa7ed yetqadamlaha it6ali3 feeh 3aib o matabeeh.

Lamees: yuma shfeech abi akamil derasti o derasti aham shay 3indi al7en. tawni sgheera!

Mother: shno sgheera!? ili ib 3umrich tezawejaw! wentay 7athretech betsafreen tadresen bara!

Mays: yuma shfech lataghsebenha 3ala shay matabeeh!

Mother: o mno gal ini ga3da aghsebha, bas il zawaj seter! o ib qamthat 3ain ymeron il sneen. o rfethatlaha 5osh reyayeel wala!

Lamees: yuma bas plzzzzz!!!

Mother: allah yhadach bas, shofay waala kilman ib 3umrich tezawaj, ya7eloha bint 5altich eb 3ers’ha thak il yom.

Lamees: allah ywafeg’ha yuma.

Mays: ee kelman ga3ed yetzawaj al7een, Bader shakelhom ib ya56ebonla. (Mays didnt know the whole story about bader and lamees)

Her heart sunk, “ay bader ay bader?!”

Mother: ay bader?

Mays: weld i5it rayli.

Her heart sunk even deeper. She couldnt believe what she was hearing. Her bader?! “MY BADER?”

Mother: siiij mnooo???

Her mother also seemed stiffened.

Mays: Bas mo akeed 7achi.

Mother: ee mno n3arfha?

Mays: ee sara bint 5alta.

Another Love Story (part 8)

This is by far the worst thing that might happen to her, just when she finally had her dream come true, and the guy that she loved all those years FINALLY returns that love for her.. It had to end. She wasn’t ready to lose her family over anything. It killed her, she went to her room shut the door and slammed on her bed, crying her eyes out. “I have to end it!” She sobbed repeatedly. Tears were streaming down her cheeks, they felt endless. Just like her love to him. Her phone rang, it was him. What was she going to do? She fought back her tears, and picked up the phone.

Bader: ha shga3ed tsaween?

Lamees: nothing ta3bana wedi anam.

Bader: Laa? matshofeen shar shfeech?

Lamees: madri walla shakli bastamreth.

Bader: 7abeebti matshofeen shar. Tabeen tnamen al7een?

Lamees: ee.

Bader: ok, bas bagolich shay.

Lamees: shno?

Bader: 3umri ib 7ayati ma7asait ini mestanis o 6ayer chethi. Sij ghayartay 7ayati, o adri ina yom min il ayam intay betsereen murti.

Lamees: me 2 .

Bader: 5alas intay naamay o itha baghaitay shay dgay 3alay ok?

Lamees: ok.

Bader: good night.

Lamees: Good night.

She felt as if her heart was torn out of her chest and cut up into pieces. But his words changed her mind, “I’m not going to give up” She thought, “The least i could do is try.”

That night Lamees cried herself to sleep, and dreamt that Bader got married and he lived happily with his wife, while she stood looking at them, staring, hear heart in pain, it seemed too real. This dream shook her up, she had to do something, soon.

Days passed, while she carried that burden on her shoulders. She carried the battle between the most people that she loved in her life, her family and the only man that she loved.

Bader noticed that she changed, he kept on asking her what was wrong? But she kept on making excuses or attempts to change the subject. Until one day he blew up on her.

Bader: intay matgolinli shfeech? 3abalich ma7es? 5ubz eedi intay sirtay! adri ina feech shay o 5asheta! it shows! bas gelt 5al an6er ymken ihya min nafs’ha tgooli! Lamees please golili tara masarat wayed galbi ga3ed yetga6a3 3alaich! ana mza3lich ib shay? imgaser ib 7agich? a7ad imthaygich?!

Lamees: la wala il 3atheem la.

Bader: 3ayal shfeech? Please golili.

His voice sounded weary, and she felt like shit for making him feel that way. She broke into tears, she couldnt hold it in anymore.

Bader: afa lamees! shfeech?! allah i5alech golili latga63een galbi shsayer?!

Lamees: bader omi..

Bader: shfeeha omich! feeha shay?!

Lamees: laaa ! la !

How could she say this without hurting his feelings! “my mom matabi iser baini o bainik shay lana mathhebik ghair mathhebi?!” It sounded so stupid as she said it in her mind.

Bader: goolay.

He sounded really weak and out of breath.

Lamees: bader, please abi tefham gabil la agolik ay shay. Ina this is not how i feel, and you have to know shkether ana a7ibik.

Bader: golay, allah i5alech golay.

Lamees: bader omi mo rathya a5eth wa7ed min mathhebik.

She heard him sigh, and he fell silent.

Bader: oo shma3na maysa ma5tha 5aali?

Lamees: Mays is not happy Bader, my parents could see that, and they blamed it 3ala il mathhab.

Bader: How is she not happy ya3ni?

Lamees: mo merta7a ma3a rayelha .

Bader: adri its going to be a problem lamees if we get married, bas ana weyach we could overcome anything, ra7 itseer mashakil adri! bas it wont be a major one!

Lamees: bader i know!!! i told u hatha ray ahali mo rayee ana ! shsawee?! shlon aqna3hom.

Bader: Lamees, mako a7ad yegdar yogaf ib wayhna, ana ma5thich ma5thich!

She wanted to believe that, she wanted that to happen more than anything! But could it happen?

Another week passed oo ohma 3ala ib 7aala wayed sa3ba. She cried 24 hours a day, she didnt eat and didnt sleep. But bader seemed to have hope more than she did, and that made it harder for her. She didnt want him to have his hopes up.

One day Lamees was watching tv in her room, when she heard a knock on the door and it was her mother.

Mother: sh3alaaaaaaaich! Yayeelich 5e6a6eeeeb!

Lamees: Heheh sij? mno? ;p

Mother: bas geltlihom binti tawha sghayra! walaw ina mo hatha il sebab.

Lamees: huh?

Mother: tadreen mno?

Lamees: mno?

Mother: om bader liflani.

**to be continued**

Another Love Story (part 7)

The next couple of weeks were just a blur, they were completely head over heals for each other.¬† Lameescouldnt believe what was happening she felt that it was a dream, a dream that she wished she would never wake up from. He was more than she expected him to be more than she wanted him to be in her dreams, he did everything for her, imsaweelaha “ya dhaina la tenkatain”. And the most important part was that he was serious about her and had talked to his family again, 3ashan yetqademonlaha.

One of those days, Lamees was home watching tv with her family, thinking about bader ofcourse and how lucky she is. And to her luck that day, her niece and sister were over. They chatted for a while, when Mays (Lamees’ sister) got a phone call.

Mays: aloo… hala wala… LAaaaaaa?? laish?? ……… inzain shsawe ya3ni ana magdar ayeebha!….. 5alas 5alas ok yala bye.

She was upset and Lamees had no idea why.

Lamees: shno shfeech ?

Mays: m7amad(her husband) mayegdar ya5eth dana (her daughter) iwadeeha bait 3amat’ha!

Lamees: ok ana awadeeha wain bait’hom?

Mays: ee wala 7abeebti matgasreen!! hneeee ib qe63a 6!

Lamees freezes. There was only one house ili a3arfa ib qe63a 6! It cant be his house!!

Lamees: aah… mayser il sayeg iwadeha?

Mays: haw shfeech! tawech btwadenha:s! yala 3ad wadeeha 3ashanii!!

Lamees: 5alas ok.

She was a duck on a pond, she seemed calm from the outside but underneath it all she was kicking the hell ut of herself! “I cant i cant take her there! what if hes there?! what am i supposed to do!…..SHIT!!” Her phone rang it was him.

Lamees: a-aloo…

Bader: sij betyeen baitna?

Lamees: WHAT! how the hell did u know!

Bader: sema3t omi itkalm i5tich… inzain yala ta3lay bashofich.

Lamees: crap… (she muttered under her breath)

Bader: haa?

Lamees: la walla shay, la shlon ashofik magdar weyay dana..

Bader: wetha ya3ni? cheni 6ali3 bara ana ga3ed ada5in oo “bil sidfa” ashofkom.

Oh god he was good there was no way out.

Lamees: MAAAAAAAAABIIIIIIIIIIII!!! aste7iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii!!!!!!!!!!! ūüė•

Bader: chub o yala ta3alay.

Lamees: (Barely breathing) ok.

Bader: inzain agol..

Lamees: hala

Bader: 3ad kesh5eelii;p

Lamees: i hate u

Bader: ana amot 3alaich;)

Lamees: :$ bye

Bader: bye.

Her heart was beating so fast it felt like she was running a marathon. She had to get out of it! she had to! Butcouldnt, she headed out of her house with her niece dana without calling bader so that he couldnt guess when will she be arriving. She managed to reach the block with the help of her sister’s directions. And her heart started beating faster and faster, “i’m going to see him” she thought over and over again. When she reached the street, she could see the most perfect outline of a body waiting for her, she tried to look away but the sight mesmerised her, she never knew he was that beautiful, that tall, that broad, that….hot. she

She reached the house and he walked towards her car while throwing the cigarette bud. All she could hear was her heart beating through her ears. She stared at him like he was something else, an extra terrestrial maybe. She felt like an idiot she was staring at him so hard that she forgot where the hell she was, he started talking and she couldnt hear him, he was laughing but she couldnt hear a thing. She thought she had gone deaf from the thumping of her heart.

Dana: 5alti ba6lay il dereesha shfeeeech!!!!!

Lamees: oh.

She finally opened it and to her extremely good luck he was laughing at her and she blushed. Well it felt like her face was burning.

Bader: gowa.

He wasnt talking to her.

Dana: igaweeek.

Bader: sh3endich yaya 3indena?

Dana: kaifiiiii:D

Bader: haha ya7lailich.

Then he looked at Lamees, her heart stopped. He stared right into her eyes, he was studying her face she felt it. She felt everything, she felt his eyes on her eyes, her cheeks, her nose… her mouth. She blushed more at that thought. It felt like it was the first time seeing him, he was more beautiful closer. His slightly dark hazel eyes glistened in the dark, his skin was so soft so tanned, his lips were full and perfect. He smiled at her, she smiled back and looked away. In merely seconds it was all over he leaned away from the window and opened the door for dana, while still looking at lamees. He shut the door turned away and put his arms around dana smiling, talking, laughing. She wished she was dana right now. He looked back at her flashed her a heart stopping smile and went in.

“I’m DEFINITELY dreaming!” She drove back home, day dreaming and in la la land.

Her Mother: ha ga6aiteeha?

Lamees: ee yuma.

Mother: ta2akadtay inha dashat?

Lamees:ee, *sigh*

Mother: mno ya 5athaha?

“Oh crap”

Lamees: Bader.

Mother: lail7en t7ebenaa?

And it all came crashing down on her in a matter of seconds.

Lamees: laa yuma.

Mother: 3abali b3ad.

How could she be this blind? How could she not see this coming when she actually knew this years ago! she knew exactly what her mom had said that time in the car. She practically said “atbara minich”.

She fell on the bed and felt her whole world came crashing down, she knew at that moment, that Bader and Lamees, might never be.

She was definitely dreaming, she started to smack her face a little to wake up, but she didnt this was real. It’s happening now. He told her that he liked her, the guy that she fell in love with all those years is confessing his feelings for her on MSN! Why arent i happy she thought? Why arent i smiling at least?!

Lamees: i dont believe you.

She spat out. She wanted to be cruel and she wanted to hurt him, and she couldnt explain why.

Bader: Lamees ana makent aro7 bait yadeti kil 5amees bas lama darait ina intay itzoreena gumt aro7. Shno tabeen akthar min chethi b3ad?

She took a moment to think about it, it was true, he didnt used to go to his grandmothers house ila after a while. He used to look at her and stare at her, but her insecurity was so stubborn to believe.

Lamees: why are you telling me this now? Shma3na ilyom?

Bader: wala il 3athem i wasnt planning to tell u anything, ever. I told u, i thought u had someone.

Lamees: oo mno galik?!

Bader: Lamees shfeech mo mohim hal 7achi al7een. Do u still have feelings for me aw la?! plz golili!

Lamees: madri.

Bader: well i do. Oo now i know you dont have someone, am not going to stop trying. Do you know il shi3oor ili u see someone and u dont know them well, bas u feel ina that person belongs to you no matter what?

“Yes i know exactly how that feels”

Lamees: La what do u mean?

Lamees: 3ayal laish il yom ili warah ra2san taghayart?

Bader: lana ib nafs il yom wsalatni il ma3loma inich itkalmeen wa7ed wet7ebena.

Lamees: aste7i.

Bader: yala 3ad!!! 3a6ini ur number;p

Lamees: bas msgs, i dont want to talk to u on the phone.

Bader: i promise.

She gave him her number, and he signed off.

She had no idea what she was waiting for. She stared at her phone in her hands, still in shock and still motionless, except for her heart that was beating so hard she felt it through her throat. She received a msg and saw it.

“Wala il 3atheem Lamees, you have always been the one.”

Another Love Story (part 5)

It was valentines day, and lamees was home. Single. Again. She signed in MSN, and HE was online. She was too deppressed to talk to him. But she wondered why was he online at this time? It’s already 5, he should have left work by this time. And she heard the beeping sound of msn, and her heart stopped for a mini second. It was him.

Bader: Hii..

Another Love Story (part 4)

She couldnt believe what was happening she was finally talking to him, he said her name, he was directing every sentence, every word, for her. Finally she felt acknowledged, he was asking wain tadresen? shlon il derasa? HE WAS INTERESTED.

Sara: inzain ana a5alekom baro7 anam.

Lamees: ok Good night.

Bader: Good night.

Sara¬†leaves the¬†conversation and leaves¬†bader¬†and lamees¬†alone. Just¬†when Lamees¬†wanted¬†to¬†close¬†the¬†window¬†too…

Bader: 3adi asaweelich add?

3aaaaaaaaadi oo baaaaaaaas ?!?! ASHKARA EEEEEEEE!!!!!

Lamees:¬†sure,¬†3adi ūüôā

And they started talking for what felt like forever. She knew everything about him and he knew everything about her in that one conversation. It hadnt hit her that she was talking to bader yet. She felt that she was dreaming, and wished to never wake up from it. The sun came up and they have been talking freely for hours. It was time to end it.

The most wonderful conversation ended, and Lamees went to bed with a smile on her face, thinking that tomorrow is a whole other day.

The first thing she did when she woke up was log on. He wasnt online, she changed her status to busy and walked away, and waited for him to log on. He didnt. Not for a long time, and paranoia hit her hard. Did he block me? Was i that lame? ta7asaf laish he talked to me? did i do something wrong?

Weeks¬†passed¬†and¬†she¬†finally¬†saw¬†him¬†online,¬†they¬†talked but it¬†wasnt¬†the¬†same¬†as¬†the¬†first time¬†they¬†did. It¬†was¬†different, BUT¬†WHY!? She¬†had¬†no idea¬†why¬†their¬†conversations¬†went¬†downhill¬†like that.¬†masra3¬†ma he lost¬†interest?¬†it stayed¬†like that until he graduated and came¬†back¬†to kuwait. He¬†signs on msn¬†for¬†a couple of¬†minutes or¬†hours once every two¬†weeks or¬†so. oo ihya¬†tan6era online¬†3ala a7ar¬†min¬†il¬†jamer everyday. Just to say hi and bye. fe days where he doesnt even talk to her. O sar he only joins msn when he’s at work.

She felt invisible again, and wondered what happened.. akeed sar shay that changed his mind. What was it?

Another Love Story (Part 3)

Mother: Na3am?! Mno hatha balah?

Lamees: …. *cries*

Mother: golili mnoo?!

Lamees: Bader.

Mother: Ay Bader?! Laykon Bader il Flani!???!

Lamees: ee Yuma.

Mother: shofay Lamees la a3arf ib yom lich 3elaqa feeh aw shay! Yawailich itha kalamteeh! shal 5arabee6! Deray balich inzain!!!

Lamees¬†couldnt believe¬†her¬†ears. What was¬†the¬†big deal!? Just¬†when¬†she¬†thought her¬†life¬†couldnt suck¬†any¬†more it¬†did. “Shsawee¬†ya3ni, galbi¬†faz 7ag hatha oo¬†bethaat¬†hatha!” ¬†She sat quite during the whole ride with her mom, and her mom lecturing her on mathaheb oo hal 5arabee6 that lamees didnt find that important.

————————————————————————————-

Lamees: Shsawee ya3ni i cant stop thinking about him!!!

Said lamees to her best friend and cousin, she told her what had happened between her and her mother. And how Bader went off to london. And how painful that was not having to see him around anymore or hear anything about him.

Mariam: walla il 3atheem intay madri shlon sayra.

Lamees: shno laish?

Mariam: shloon t7eben wa7ed ma3umrich kalamteeeh!!?

Lamees: ee shno mo shar6 i could feel ina hes the one!

Mariam: wala mu 7ub hatha sadgeeni.. il 7ub iyee min il 3ishra inich tkalmeen wa7ed kilyom itshofena shga3ed esawe meta inam o mita igom min il noom oo it7ateena itha akal wela la.

Lamees: mo shar6 maryoom. I see him almost every week, bel shahar cham mara. I see how he is i observe him with his cousins and parents. i could tell hes an amazing guy it shows!

Mariam: madrii bas ana asameeh hatha 7ub afla6ooniii!! mo siji!! its just a crush believe me!

Lamees: just a crush !!! shlon just a crush?! u see me ana im always thinkng about him he is always on my mind!!!

Mariam: madri wala, maybe ur different. I dont know isara7a.

But she was more doubtful than she thought, mariams words sank in harder than she thought she began to question weather if it was just a crush or an obsession or true love. It was her final year in highschool, and its been months since hes been gone and she had heard nothing from him. No matter how hard she tried to get news from her sisters or his cousins, she just couldnt get anything out of them.

————————————————————————————-

Time passed and Lamees went to college where she met many guys here and there, she tried to get Bader off of her mind but she couldnt she just pretended that he didnt exist anymore. She was 18, and guys came from allover either proposing or simply te7eresh. She didnt want anyone in her life, her mind thought that she should have fun during this time, go wild, meet guys, get crazy. But she knew deep down in her heart Bader still set camp in there, and was lighting a bon fire, that surely made her heart burn by the thought of him.

One of those memorable nights, Lamees was chatting on msn with her friends, one of her friends was Bader’s “more than the usual slutty cousin”, who was telling her how she had feelings to one of her relatives and that she was trying to “it6ay7a” but couldnt cuz ohwa mayabeeha. EE FIHMAY!! mako fayda.

Sara: abaih Lamees shsawee mayabeeni.

Lamees: its ok hun, ako many fish in the sea shma3na hatha.

Sara: shdarani iff:(

Lamees: its¬†ok its¬†ok;p¬†dont worry¬†we’ll get¬†you¬†another¬†one. Hehehe

Sara: inzain am bored solfay.

Lamees: me too kilsh mako salfa intay solfay.

Sara: yala tabini asawe a7ad invite?

Lamees: sure, mno?

Sara: Badoor, hes in london my cuzn, t3arfeena sa7.

WHAT! WHAT! Invite?! Bader!? INVITE?! THE BADER?! LA LA LA MABI A5AF ASTE7I She thought. NO NO NO!!

Lamees: umm, madri la fashla i dont know him 3adil.

Sara: yala 3ad! chub basawee.

Lamees: LAAAA!!!

Bader was invited to the convo. and saw the big fat LAAAA!!

Bader:¬†shno¬†laa? matabooni? ūüėõ

Sara: Lool ee tgol teste7i minik!!!

Lamees wanted to throw the laptop 3ala ras sara bas

remained dead silent min il mista7a.

Bader: laish who is it.

Sara: Its Lamees i5it Mays mort 5ali m7amad.

Bader: oooh hi Lamees shlonich.

Lamees: am fine tamam how are u.

And finally they said their first words to each other, and here the story of Bader and Lamees begins.

**To Be Contintued**  

Another Love Story (part 2)

He was Bader, isim 3ala mosama she thought. She kept asking herself who is he, he better be someone she could see every day. Millions and millions of questions ran through her mind. She forgot the pain she was in and kept wondering. Mno hatha? cham 3umra? sheser 7ag m7amad (rayel i5it’ha)?

Is¬†he looking¬†at¬†me? No,¬†he¬†couldnt be?¬†why me? she looks¬†behind¬†her¬†mako a7ad. She¬†denied¬†his looks¬†and¬†thought¬†to¬†herself,¬†no way¬†he’d¬†be looking¬†at me hes¬†to¬†good looking. “shyabi¬†feeni¬†ana?!”

The wedding was over, her sister went off to her honey moon and she never felt this lonely before, the house was different, Kuwait was different. However, the biggest reason that put her down was the thought of bader. Her heart ached everytime she thought about him, she was convinced she was in love.

Time passed¬†by her sister¬†came back and¬†all¬†went¬†to¬†normal. She started hanging¬†out¬†her¬†sisters¬†house much,¬†she still¬†didnt¬†see¬†him¬†though, even¬†though he¬†was her brother¬†in¬†laws’ nephew. He¬†was¬†supposed¬†to¬†be¬†there in¬†the¬†family¬†gatherings¬†waina?! She started¬†to be friends¬†with¬†all¬†his¬†cousins¬†and¬†especially¬†his sisters. She loved¬†them¬†so much,¬†she loved¬†his¬†parents,¬†and every¬†time¬†they¬†mention¬†his¬†name her¬†heart skips¬†a¬†beat,¬†and¬†apparently he¬†was¬†a¬†popular¬†guy¬†around their extended¬†family¬†cuz it¬†seemed that every¬†girl¬†who knew he existed¬†had¬†a crush¬†on¬†him.

But she thought she was different, she was in love with him, even though she only saw him once. He entered her heart and managed to sit there and set camp. Bader, Bader, Bader she thought. and more of that name every where, he was an illusion she could never get rid of an obsession that will never part. His name was all over her diaries, her notebooks, she played how their first conversations might go when she finally meets him. (you know sowalif morahaqa;p)

Months, LONG months passed, where she became better friends with his sister, and his slutty cuznz, she didnt mind cuz she thought they might someday bring me closer to him.

Their families have decided to rent chalets in khiran resort, she must see him there she has to!

And she did. She was walking towards her chalet and saw him in the chalet next to them, was he staring at me? she didnt know, she had her head down. She was scared to death and felt her heart beating in her ears. She walked faster and he walked parallel to her. IS THIS HAPPENNG?! she sped up and walked faster to her chalet, and felt his eyes on hero. She ran the last two steps to the door and slammed it after her! she just stood there staring at the door.

“Lamees!”

She turns so quickly her head starts to spin, breathless staring at her mother.

“Haw,¬†shfeech?”

“wala¬†shay”,¬†she blushes¬†and¬†runs up to her¬†room, locks¬†the¬†door¬†and lays¬†down on¬†the¬†bed. Did¬†that just happen?¬†was¬†he looking¬†at¬†me? or¬†was it cuz i¬†was¬†the¬†only¬†one¬†there? DID¬†THAT JUST¬†HAPPEN!!!?

Years and years passed by, her obsessions of bader grew as she did, not a day passed without thinking about him. She had seen him tons of times, many times where he stared at her but yet again her lack of confidence made her believe that he was looking at the picture frame behind her, or just simply staring at the air that happens to be next to her. She never talked to him, but had countless conversations with him in her mind.  She used to cry herself to sleep, she cries asking why couldnt this be any easier?

Little did she know, it was going to get much harder. Harder than she thought, he was travelling to london to study abroad. Her world fell apart, she wouldnt see him every thursday anymore, how on earth is she going to know hows he doing or is he sleeping or eating well?

Her¬†mother¬†noticed¬†that she¬†wasnt¬†well, so¬†she¬†asked: “shfeech¬†intay¬†hal cham¬†yom¬†mo¬†3ala¬†ba3thich?”

Lamees: haw laish? 3adi shfeeni. *forced a giggle*

Mother: golili shfeech laykon t7ebeeen?!

Waaay galb il om, she thought.

Lamees: la yoma itha ba7ib bagolich lat5afeen ;p

Mother: golili mno?

Silence.

Mother: ok , mnoooo mnooo mnooooo? *her mother was trying to guess who!*

Lamees: waay yuma la allah i5aleech!

Mother: yala 3ad golili mno!!

Lamees’ eyes start to well¬†up.

Lamees: yuma a7ibaa…

**to be continued**

Another Love Story.

The music was too loud; she was too tired, too traumatized. She felt like losing a part of herself, she had to say goodbye, tonight. She was more than a sister to her, she felt like she was her second mother and her close friend. She had to fake a smile during the whole ceremony, she had to. It was her sister’s wedding. She had to be happy for her sister, because she finally married the man that she loved. The man that her family tried to keep them apart from each other but failed.

She remembers exactly how her sister looked when her dad said that she will never marry this man. She remembers exactly how many days her sister spent crying on that pillow of hers, and she remembers exactly how happy she was when her father finally gave in. All that heartbreak for a reason that Lamees loathed, a reason that seemed so ignorant. “Shno ya3ni sena oo shee3a?!”, she thought.But it didn‚Äôt matter now; she was losing one of her favorite people in the whole world.

Mays is getting married and she’s happy now, I‚Äôm happy for her. Lamees is only 13 years old she was young at heart, but acted older than her age when she wanted to.Her trail of thought was cut off by the song that makes her sad and happy and scared and excited all at the same time. It‚Äôs time for her sister to come and walk, that walk where every single girl wishes that it were she instead of the bride. “hab il sa3ad” was playing, and the most beautiful creature walks in, her eyes start to fill up with tears at the sight of her sisters beauty, she always knew that her sister was more beautiful, but never knew that she is that breathtaking.

After she sat on the “kosha” she waved to call Lamees, they hugged and cried.Mays asked Lamees to stay by her side, until the groom comes. She happily accepted and waited, and didn‚Äôt want this moment to pass. But it did. In he came, he looked so handsome, and a huge crowd came in after him.

At this moment every girl in the room shifted and moved to get a better look at the most eligible bachelors. Lamees didn’t care at this moment. But some one caught her eye, his eyes to be precise. He was looking at her, and at that moment when their eyes met. It felt like an eternity, in that moment she felt that she fell in love got married and got old with that guy. Who was he?

***To Be Continued***

Note: Ok, this is the surprise I was telling you about. It’s not much but I know how much I love these stories, and am hoping that you guys do too. The only questions that I‚Äôm not going to answer are: is it a true story? Is this your story? I just prefer to keep that fact on the low.
