Ok guys - Im posting this part then I will be taking a little break. Enjoy oo hala hala bil comments.
"Khalid who?" she asked trying to regain her composure and pretend that she didn’t know what he was talking about.
"Meems please la tistahbalini – I know all about u and Khalid" and he proceeded to tell her how he met him 6 years ago when they were first year students at Georgetown University in DC. They were assigned the same room in the dorms and moved out 2 months later into their own apartment on M Street. They lived together for 4 years and shared everything and spent almost every spring break together. Sami also told her that Khalid was one of the main reasons he came to live in Oman. He was sick of Saudi and the life there and mainly the lack of freedom. It was hard settling in after being used to the life and freedom abroad. He told her all about the phone call he received from Khalid about a year ago telling him that he met the girl of his dreams and the one he knew he was going to marry.
After Sami moved to Muscat, he used to see Khalid quite often but never met the girlfriend until one day Hanan figured out that the Khalid who went to college with him was the same one that Meems was seeing. She confronted Sami about it and during conversation, they figured it out.
"Meems I met the girl a while later. She is NOTHING compared to you. Khalid is like my brother and I told him so. All I knew about u is what I know from Hanan. A few months ago I had a major falling out with him because of this issue. Hatheek ilbnaya bay3a 7ayaha oo howa bardu 9arat sum3itu zabala oo kida ibsababha. Inti 6ala3ty minha saleema ya Meems"
That is when Sami turned around to look at her for the first time since he started telling her the story. He noticed that the whole time she was crying and he suddenly got nervous. He hated seeing girls cry cos he never knew what to do. She realized that he never told her where he lives and she never asked but were now parked in front of his sister's house. He got out without saying anything and she drove off.
6 months later
"Hala 7anoona – mashallah 3alaiky ur starting to show!!! If it’s a girl you have to promise me you will call her after me" sang Meems as she walked into Hanan's house.
"Aish hada il gamar 6ali3 bilnahar?? Lah lah lah – goolily aish il 7ikaya"
"Il 7ikaya yabooya kida bagooli da7eena lama yow9al a5oooky abu ilsim" mocked Meems. She loved the Saudi accent especially on guys. Just then Sami walked in saying "how are my favourite 2 girls in the whole wide world". He flopped on the couch and put his head on Meems' lap. Automatically she started playing with his curls.
Since that day 6 months ago, Sami and Meems had gotten closer and closer. He still felt guilty sometimes because here he was with his ex best friend's ex gf who he had soooo many strong feelings for. But then again he realised that since he had good intentions at heart and the way Khalid treated her made him want to give her everything.
"Yalla ya binty – laish munshaki7a ilyoum" said Hanan
Meems involuntarily started blushing "I have a date tonight".
