Dhakiyah and Hayrah

Episode Seven

Dhakiyah cleaned her sweaty face as she walked along the hot and busy road.

The sun shone brightly and lighted the whole city like candlelight.

She placed her wet palm on each other, longing to leave the busy road and get a breath of good air.

She wondered why she was really hot. It surely would be because of the weather...or the fact that she had a thick veil on...rather, because of her mission.

Hayrah was out to her baking class and Dhakiyah knew that it was the best time to handle things once and for all.

You have to do this Dhakiyah. You can do this!

She murmurs, crossing to the other side of the road and nervously staring at the coffee shop.

It was where they had first met Ali and they both agreed to meet there.

Dhakiyah entered the coffee shop with a feel of relief as the air conditioned room washed over her skin.

She scanned through the room and spotted Ali at the left corner, with his usual bright smile.

"Asalamu 'alaykum. I'm sorry for arriving late. It's the traffic".

"Wa'alaykumu salam. It's worth the wait". He smiled at her.

"Okay...let's get to business..."

"Ah no, not so fast. You should have a cold drink first". He said, walking over to the counter and getting her one.

"So, how was your test?"

"It was fine". She replied.

"Good. Nice to hear that".

"Ah, I need to say why I'm here. I don't have the luxurious time to spend here," When she didn't get a response, she continued, "I understand that you like me but this can't be possible. My best friend is crazy over you and that's what matters".

"Really? I like you. Your best friend likes me. Can you deny that you do not like me?"

"Well...I can't answer that. I just want to tell you to change who you like. You should be liking Hayrah and not me".


"Because she's crazy about you Ali. She's not been herself after your so called date. I just want her to be happy again". Dhakiyah said, almost in tears.

She watched as Ali turned green, his lips pinned tightly together in anger and disappointment.

He was really handsome, too handsome to let go...but she had to.

"Are you implying that I like Hayrah out of my own detriment?"

"Yes Ali. Please".

"But I love you Dhaki".

"If you love me, then do this for me. Make Hayrah happy".

"Why do you even care so much? It's not like she does the same to you?"

"I don't care Ali. I just can't betray her by liking you".

"I'm sorry Dhaki, but I can't do this. Good bye". He said, storming out of the building.
