I watched as Zainab gently walked back to her hostel. She was the perfect definition of beauty. I couldn't help but to smile and wonder how in few years time she'd be mine. Yes, I'd make her mine against all odds, In Shaa Allah. But the problem now was how to deal with Fadilah. She had been a burden on my head for the past three years.
I loved her before but not anymore, and certainly not ever. But she still loved me, and could do anything to get me. I could deal with her direly but I knew how evil she was, just like her mother. They could go to any extent just to get what they wanted. Having those people around could be dangerous, you wouldn't have peace in your life!
I drove home just after attending my last lecture for the day. I thought I would have a quick shower and a beautiful siesta as soon as I reached home but that didn't happened. I was bewildered to see Fadilah in my room when I came back. She had been waiting for me for eternity. Hell no!
"What are you doing here?" I puzzled.
"I'm here to see you, I've been waiting" She said as she stood from my bed. She even had the gut to sit on it in the first place. "I'm here to tell you to forget about the iPad" she added amicably.
"Why?" I blurted as I gently walked to the armchair and fell wearily in it.
"Because it is not proper for me to watch you pay for someone's crime..."
"Zainab is not just someone" I intruded.
"How?" She sat back on my bed.
"Zainab is special" I smirked.
"Do you love her?" She asked.
Thus, I laid out a smile on my face and quoted the verse of the Holy Qur'an that says, "O you who believe! Ask not about things which, if made plain to you, may cause you trouble" (Qur'an 5:101).
"I'm already in trouble, Ayman!" She said folding her arms across her chest.
"Huh?" I gulped and continued "your iPad is on its way coming. I ordered for it online, so you're a bit too late dear"
I stood to leave the room before she could say another word but she was too quick to get told of my arm. "I love you, Ayman and I will fight to get you even if it means killing somebody" she said.
