She walked towards the table and sat down beside her grandfather. She took her order and waited for the family / guests to arrive. She saw her uncle his sons and his wife, she welcomed them and saw A7mad walk towards them. Salam and he sat down not bothering to go around the table and say hi to everyone. She saw the same old lady that she saw earlier join them; she was surprised that Mady was with them, she never expected her to be the daughter of AlX. She saw 5leefh walk in with a girl.
Everyone replied back. The girl that was with 5leefh sat beside A7mad and 5leefh.
Hi, I’m Lamya, A7mad’s wife-to-be. You must be Madiyah, right? The girl who had the accident?
Yes that’s me… The girl who had the accident. She smiled with discomfort. Nice to meet you.
Nice to meet you too.
After dessert, some of Mady’s cousins left; 3abdl3aziz and 3abdallah expect A7mad, Lamya and Fahad who had stayed seated.
Mady, goomay 5alna enroo7 ntmasha. En’3ayr jaw.
I don’t feel like going out. It’s cloudy.
Then where do you want to go?
I don’t know. It’s ok, go out without me.
Are you sure?
After an hour, A7mad and Lamya had left. Madiyah stayed with her grandparents and 5leefh and his parents. 5leefh’s mother invited Madiyah to come to her room, and sit with her and perhaps join her for dinner. Madiyah agreed. Um 5leefh told her son to escort Madiyah to her room.
She got in her room and invited him to come in, he said that he had to go back and finish a couple of things so he couldn’t stay.
For what you did yesterday… She played with her fingers nervously. He stayed quiet and waited for her to finish talking, but she didn’t. She turned her face the other way. He stared at her, the way her breathing was unsteady, the way her delicate fingers were shacking. He walked towards her, and placed her hands in his. Her tears fell down uncontrollably. And she cried, she had waited so long for this moment to come, someone to listen to her sad cries, someone that was able to console her emotions. He hugged her tight and she hugged him back, not wanting to let go.
Shhh... It’s ok... Everything’s going to be alright. He stroked her hair. She tightened her grip.
Isn’t that what they always say? But everything isn’t alright, never was never will be. I act as if I no longer care but deep down I know that I’m still attached. You don’t know how it feels like to love someone so much but the person you love is in love with someone else. She unloosed her fingers, and gently pushed herself away. I’m sorry.
He was devastated to see her like that. If you need me, I’m always here for you. He kissed her forehead and left. She stared at him as he walked away. What a gentleman, she thought. Does he really not know how it feels like to love someone who is deeply in love with someone else? Remember Mady to always think twice before you speak.
