                                         Episode Six
Hamdalah sat in the living room and watched TV with her family. She hadn't been herself after the incident at the wedding. It took a long time before she confessed to Maryam the reason for her sadness.
She had given up on Abdur Rahman.
Despite Maryam's attempt to convince her, she never accepted that he could ever love her.
I was so stupid to fall in love with him. I always knew that we were different and that he'd never see me the way I do.
Hamdalah thought as she scowled at the TV. Everyone raised their eyebrows at her.
"Are you okay Hamdalah? You've been acting really weird for days now". Her Aunt asked concerned.
"I'm fine Aunt." Hamdalah said as Numan entered with a parcel.
Numan was Hamdalah's younger cousin and he was only twelve years old.
'Here's a package for you sister Hamdalah. A man came here saying that someone has sent it to you". he gave her the package covered with red designs.
'Who would have sent it". She murmured to herself as she surveyed the gift.
"Dunno. It probably would be from a boy". Numan chuckled.
"Go back and continue your assignment". Her Aunt dispersed him as he left the living room still chuckling.
Hamdalah went inside the room to open the gift. She felt very nervous as she untangled the gift wrapper.
Who can do this be? She thought.
In it was a silver box and a hand written letter. She decided to first open the letter. It was written by Abdur Rahman. It read:-
Dear Hamdalah,
As you read this, I'm currently on my way to London. I so much hate to leave Nigeria but I have to see my dad. He's the only one I've got and I have to make him happy.
I really don't know why I have this strange feeling leaving you behind for just a period of time. I haven't experienced this before and I don't know why I am now.
More so, I don't know why I feel this way or why I even decided to write to you.
I have something really important to tell you when I come back but till then, I hope you take good care of yourself.
                                                                                                                                                                           Yours Faithfully,
                                                                                                                                                                             Abdur Rahman.

Hamdalah couldn't control the tears that swelled her eyes when she read the letter.  What baffled her more was when she opened the black box.
In it contained the most sparlikng silver bracelet that Hamdalah had ever seen. Hamdalah wore the shiny bracelet and cried deeply. She was happy that Abdur Rahman had sent it to her.
Maryam entered the room to see her sister smiling and crying at the same time.
'What happened? Who sent you this?" Her eyes popped open as she touched the sparkling bracelet.
"Abdur Rahman". Hamdalah said and the thought of him came to her mind again.
She gave the letter to Maryam and she read it.
Maryam hugged Hamdalah tight as she also became emotional.
'Abdur Rahman loves you Hamdalah. This says it all. You've just got to be patient till he comes back. I'm pretty sure that what he has to say when he returns is to confess his undying love for you. He would tell you how happy he is to meet you and how he would like to spend the rest of his life with you. I assure you that". Maryam caressed her sister's back.
Hamdalah believed what Maryam said. She would wait patiently for him to confess his love for her.

P.S- Ladies always feel flustered when a man sends them a precious gift. It shows how deeply they are being cherished. If you truly love someone, why don't you take out time to buy something precious that such person will live to remember.

What do you think of this episode? Should Hamdalah wait patiently for Abdur Rahman???
