"I'm going to miss you so much. Call me as soon as you reach home" Adda said hugging me tightly
"I'll miss you too and my baby."
"Adda Afra you won't miss me baa? not fair" Ahmad feigned hurt.
"Haba one and only. You know I will miss you the most. In fact you and Abdalla should switch, he can go to Nigeria while you stay" adda joked
"Babe your sending me away. Ehnn let me call that Natasha my co worker and see if I can crash in her apartment tonight" Abdalla joked and adda send him a death glare.
"You know I hate that girl and I will never send you away" she cried
"I was just joking. I didn't mean to make you cry"
"Damn pregnancy hormones" she said and we all laughed.
"We're gonna miss our flight fah" Ahmad said checking the time and we got in the car.
"Ammah wait" Adda said "read this, bye and I love you" she said giving me a letter
"I love you too" and with that we drive away. My phone buzzed and I checked to see a message from Faisal.
F- baby Ammah.
A- baby na.
F- Where are you?
A- on my way to the airport
F- your going back to Nigeria today?
F- oh. I didn't know
A- I thought ya abba told you that's why I didn't inform you
F- Maybe he did and I forgot, anyways Ameera and I will come back tomorrow Insha Allah
A- Okay. See you then
F- Take care of your self for me.. I love you.
A- I love you too.
Ahmad informed we've reached the airport and i got out of the car. I don't know about Faisal's and I relationship. Are we dating? Are we not dating?
He can't just open up to me and text me I love you like nothing ever happened between us.
I made a mental to my self to talk to him about us when he comes back to Nigeria then board on our plane.
"Hey. I'll be two seats away from you, if you need anything just come over" Ahmad said and I smile sweetly at him.
"Will do" I replied and he walk away. I said my duas and brought out the letter adda gave me and start to read.
"Hey baby sister! Thank you so much for coming I really enjoyed your company. There wasn't time to tell you what I wanted to tell but here it goes:
Ammah you've got to tell Faisal about Tsunami. He needs to know. Darling I promise nothing between you guys will change.. And the same blood that flows in Tsunami's veins might be the one flowing in your veins but that doesn't mean anything. You don't even know him. You've never seen him.. You only heard stories about him. I really, really think Faisal has the right to know the truth. That his long lost enemy is your UNCLE, our uncle. Tell him please. And you won't let Tsunami ruin your life.. The person you've never met. Haba dai! Ammah there is one thing you keep doing in life that is wrong.. You allow others ruin and decide your life for you and sweetheart it's wrong. It's your life, your decision, your rules and your ways! Please grow up. I know you are matured on the inside even though sometimes you act immature which I don't blame you.. It's all ya abba and mama for pampering you. From now on if some one decides your life for you and you don't want it that way you should please speak up. You have a mouth baby sis, use it to talk. Ammah if you don't start voicing out your opinions then your life will be a play. I love and care about you that's why I'm telling you all this. As an elder sister if I don't tell you I don't know who will. Tell Faisal and let faith play his game. Live your life to the fullest and do anything you wish as long as your on the right track. Safe trip baby and tell the fam I'm expecting in less than six months.
Adda's letter left me in tears.
I have to tell Faisal. As soon as he returns.
"Ya abaaaaaaa" I yelled with enthusiasm as I hugged him tightly.
"Ammahhhh" he hugged me back tightly.
"I missed you"
"Aww baby, I missed you more" he said letting go off me and hugging Ahmad. After their manly hug, we went to ya abba's car and we drop Ahmad at home before driving home.
"I don't know if it's London or Afra's home but you've grown fat" ya abba said and i pout.
"Speaking of Adda, she is pregnant" I squealed
"What? When? how?"
"Since I went to London, and she is due in less than six months. And how.. Ya abba I don't think I need to tell you how babies are produced. Your a grown married man, you should know" I laughed and he roll his eyes at me
"And she didn't tell anyone, is she nuts?"
"Well according to her it was embarrassing"
"Kai Afra" he shake his head sideways. "Well since you told me a good news let me tell you a good news too" he said
"What is it?" I asked
"Yasmeen is four weeks pregnant"
"Whaaaaaaat? OMG! This is good news"
"But you can't tell anyone until she is three months pregnant"
"Cross my heart and hope to die" I said as we enter the compound of my home. Ahh home sweet home.
"Why are there so many cars, do we have visitors?" I asked ya abba as we get down.
"I don't know. Let's go check" he said as we enter the house.
"Ammah!!" Rabia yelled hugging me tightly.
"Rabia. When did you come?" I asked. Remember aunty Umma's first daughter.. Yeah, her.
"Everybody arrived the day before yesterday" she said answering my question and before I could ask why she disappeared.
"Ya abba do you know why?" I asked and turning around only to find him not there. Hmmmph.
"Ammah" Radeel's wife, Amani yelled hugging me.
"Hi. You came too?"
"I wouldn't miss it for the world" she said
"Miss what?" I asked confused and she giggled running away.
What the heck is going on?
"Ammah" she yelled too hugging me in a bone crashing hug.
"What is going on in this house?" I asked and she giggled
"Aunty Umma is calling me, bye" she lie running away.
Okay this is getting annoying!
It's not funny anymore.
"Human diary" I called Khalifa and he hugged me.
"Hey" he says
"Will you please tell me what is going on in this house?" I asked on the verge of tears.
"Have you met mama?" He asked
"Go meet her" he said smiling and walking away too.
"Yasmeen!!" I called
"Ammah?" She asked hugging me
"Please tell me what's going on in this house" I plead
"Hey listen don't cry. Just got and meet mama, she will tell you" she said walking away.
Why is everybody mean?!
I walk to mama's room where she was sitting with aunty Umma and that Rihane woman. What is she doing here?
"Amarya (bride)" the Rihane woman said.
Who is she talking to? I greeted them and hug mama.
"Mama what is going on in this house? No body is telling me anything" I said
"That's because i told everyone not to tell you" she smiled sweetly at me
"Then you tell me"
"You are getting married in two months" she said "Ahmad's family asked for your hand in marriage yesterday" she add as tears roll down my eyes. No. This cannot be happening.
