The girls waited for Lamya to get ready. It was soon time for Lamya to go down; as her room door gradually opened the girls were amazed by her beauty, the way she had changed. Her makeup so simple and so little and her hair was just perfect with the veil, it was opened and it fell loosely around her.
The girls walked behind carrying her veil and adjusting her dress, they made their way downstairs. Madiyah’s heart pounded just thinking of being in Lamya’s position right now was scary yet the joy of finally being a wife. There she was; Lamya walking down the aisle; it was her night. A night to remember. She got up on her stage walking slowly then she made her way towards her chair.
After Lamya was seated, woman began forming into groups and going up on stage to congratulate her, and for Madiyah and Fai they danced all night long. As Madiyah made her way down the aisle a woman called out for her and asked who she was; from there many women asked about her. She then felt uncomfortable by how they all stared at her. The girls she met in Kuwait were all there; she sat down with them then soon she had to go up to Lamya and make sure everything was alright. Soon the DJ had announced that the men are coming and the women covered up. Madiyah put on her translucent wedding abaya and sat down waiting for them to make their way in. The song began and A7mad made his way in; he looked sharp with a shy excited smile. The train of men that followed A7mad were his brothers and father, 5leefh and Mady’s father and brothers. Her eyes followed 5leefh as he made his way; he was handsomer than ever, a sudden jolt injected her; of fear, shame, yet she craved him more than ever oh-so-much. She wanted to exit the building but Om 5leefh has asked her if she could take a picture with them all.
Insay ele estuwa, ta3aly 5aleena nt9awar. This is a new start. Ta3aly 7abeebty. She gently grabbed her hand, smiled at her and walked with her towards them. Madiyah shyly made her way up. Salimat 3alaihm klhm, awalhm ubooha.
Essalam 3alaikm. She said as she got closer to 5leefh she was staring at the floor.
After hours the hall was empty and it was nearly time for the Fajr prayer. Madiyah and Om 5leefh were the only ones left and somehow it was awkward.
Thank you for everything Madiyah.
