Dhakiyah and Hayrah

Episode Five
Dhakiyah hardly concentrated during lectures. She thought of how awkward the outing would be and if Hayrah would notice that it was actually her that Ali likes.

She regretted convincing Hayrah to visit the coffee shop. They wouldn't have met Ali...they would never have known he even existed and things would have worked out fine as before.

"Dhaki...Dhaki..." Hayrah nudged her with a pen.

" Hayrah..." She got startled as she drifted back to consciousness.

Hayrah gave her a suspicious look. "What is wrong with you? You've been acting strange since yesterday".

"I'm fine Hayrah. What were you saying?"

"Seriously Dhaki, I can't believe I've been ranting and speaking to myself for the past thirty minutes.
 You can be unbelievable Dhaki". She said as she walked out of her presence.

It was after lectures and Dhakiyah and Hayrah left school, having the same thoughts. Only that one kept to herself while the other expressed her thoughts freely.

"I can't believe that I'm going on a date with Ali. It's so unbelievable". Hayrah threw her hands in the air, excitedly.
"Yeah. Remember the promise...we won't stay long". Dhakiyah warned.

Hayrah rolled her eyes at her. "I wonder why he even invited you along. You're no fit to outings at all".

"Remember you pleaded that I come along ".

"Oh okay. Just be yourself. Hold a smiling face Dhaki". Hayrah said as they boarded a taxi to the restaurant.
