Chapter 1/ Rojeana
I woke up feeling the sun rays on my face, Ouuuuf..., ouuuuuuf.., turning aside to see my sister's bed empty, I know she won't be sleeping till now specially when we're in weekday. I looked at clock on the bedside it read 12 am, yeah, yeah I know what you thought about me but believe me I'm not a lazy girl so just drop it,any ways I get the cover off my body and take my way to the bathroom i finish my morning routine, I head to the kitchen to make my favorite first drink of my day,cup of coffee with piece of crape I like with cheese.

Jumping up and down of happiness?? even if it is just an interview, but I have hope to get it, and I'll do my best for that.
It is 19:20 evening when apartment door opened and my beautiful sis appeared walking through the corridor making faces to me and louddly saying, "soooorry sooooorry for not informing you that I'll be late".
" Chamss Douha don't you dare do it again I was worry, you didn't peck up the phone I called you a several times ", I said putting plates on dinning table. " Rojy I realy want to text but my friend also forgot her cell phone in the car" . she said hugging me from behind. Fine now go fresh up, I'll set up the table while you do.
By way guys forgive my manner less I didn't introduce myself, my name is Roujeana SULTAN,25 yeas old, I graduated in low "legal studies".beside my little sis I have a brother he leaves with mom in Chafchawn city, 5 hours away from here, and yeah dad is died when I was 15 yrs.
Me and chamss moved on here because my lovely sis wanna to studies design, and this year is the last to finally get her degree's. We share apartment with tow other sisters they're our childhood friends, you can say we're family.
After half an hour Chamss comes and sat across me we start having dinner while chatted.
" so chamss where were you is everything ok? I didn't ask you when you just came you seem tired then, now you all fresh up".
"Where I would be Rojy at mall the profesoures give as the project we'll work on for the graduation ". she said taking full fork of noodles.
"What is the project theme? I asked
"It was on Quaften "Moroccan traditional gown ", new ambition, inspired by 18th century with modern soul "she said staring to me because I laughed.
"Sweetie don't stressed your self, you'll find an aspiration and make the most wonderful work, and a beautiful Caftan pieces", I told her Picking her cheeks, I'll do my best rojy to make you all proud of me.
Yesterday I told chamss abou the interview, she was happy for me and wished me best lack, actually we were just us at home since our room mates are out the city visiting family.
I woke up early morning offered Fajar Salah, and started reciting Quran, when I finished I putted it on shelf, looked to clock hanging on the wall it was 5:00, so i went back to sleep for some more time.
Feeling cold wind on my face I turned to the other side and cover my face, within a minute I stepped off of the bed feeling horrible "ya allah!", did I missed the interview, I looked wide eyes to the clock then I let out deep breath think god,I still have time it's 8:15 and the audience it's at 10:00.
Like every day I do my morning routine, heading to the closet I brought out lengthy dress it was an two pieces dress in blue ocean color, with waist belt in silver color, and matching veil and a three inches cane heel. wearing a light and simple makeup I don't put full makeup except in family parties.
Getting out of bebroom I smell the *Mssaman*with honey on it, it smelt delicious *Mssaman* is one of Moroccan pancakes.
" waaaaw, my baby doll made breakfast herself ", I said kissing her cheek and sat on my chair, the table is already set up, Chamss brought coffee and milk jug, she took chair and sat.
"you looking beautiful Rojy, if you didn't get the job, you'll come with many proposals in hand instead ".
Chamss said with big smile on her face, but never reaching her stunning hazel eyes, she is always this way, even during our family gathering, happiest time her joy ever seemed incomplete. To be honest she isn't the only one but also mom and brother either our friends, so I keep say to selfe that is all my allusions, because if is there something which make them sad how can't I be unaware about it am I right ?.
About forty minutes of ride by the bus I arrived the town where the company building located, I walked five minutes away from the bus station, and I found a tall structure standing front of my eyes.
Entering lobby the people walked by are all in suits, women in high heels and fancy clothes as I see with no doubt, I'll do fun of myself over her, I headed to main desk. " good morning I'm Rojeana Sultan I've got interview for legal counsel". I said, the women nodded and after checking and clicking on her computer then said, "Mss Sultan please take your way to the 20th floor and you'll found someone to guide ya". I thanked her and make my way to the elevator.
I stepped out of the lift I sow a young girl standing next to the reception desk holding file on her hands, I'm about to talk when she pointed to the waiting area where other girls are waiting.
While I'm waiting for my name to be called I felt strange glares on me every now and then from the girls, I pet they thought that I'm not suited in here because I wore simple length dress whilst they wore fancy pieces, showing thier body more than what it cover, I raised my eyes from the magazine and give them smile that means I don't give a damn care to their dirty stares.
Thirty minutes after I marched toward's double wood door, I knocked and entering office which was totally beautiful with grey and black theme design, there behind the desk sat a young man he looked calms, and screaming rich and powerful, standing beside desk I cleared my throat, so he snapped out of whetever he's thinking of.
He took a look of my profile while saying,"as I see Mss, Sultan you don't seems surprised seeing me ". " Excuse me !!" I said is this man mentally okay, why should I be surprised.
"Actually every girl came to this interview expect the big boss to be here not me". Like I care who is the boss all what's matter to me is to get this labor and developed my carrier.
"Mss, Sultan you have a good, and impressive profile", I give him polity smile as he asked me.
"why you quite your former work? And what made you interested in this offer?.
"Hhm... all I thought about when I applied to this post is that I have to find job, so soon because there're bills and rent to pay, and a sis to support even thought our family fulfilled all our needs but I do like earn money by myself, I said to myself looking to my hands on my lap.
I lifted my head and I'm about to give him an answer when I found him staring at me, did I see it out loud? Oh ya Allah no no. "sorry sir I didn't mean to be rude. " Mmm I...mm" tried to speak when he cut me. "so it doesn't matter to you that our company is one of *ALBOURAQ HOLDING GROUP*companies.
"No... not at all sir in fact it's my honor to be a company member's."
many people dreamed joining, AHG, and here I am never knew I'm giveing interview into one of it's enterprises, we talked for another five minutes before I leave, he said they'll contacted me within tow day if I'm hired.
Next day I was at home alone chamss has work to do with her university friends, at 13:00 clock I finished my workout taking shower, and offered Adohar Salah, then headed to the kitchen I took out the bitza from oven and have my lunch I hate eating alone so I just took one lice and putted the rest in fridge.
After 40 minutes of nap, I sat on the sofa switching on tv looking for something to watch but within ten minutes I turned it off, headed to the bedroom, I grabbed the book I didn't finish reading yet it's title is
she answered in second rung. " Salam, Rojy what's up are you okay is everything alright?
" Salam sweetie I'm fine baby doll I just wondering if you wanna go to the city center this evening " I said, my voice held stress even while I tried to sound normally.
"Sis I know you very well, so don't lie on me tell me you'rent sack, are you?, please don't hide it from me". she said, even sounds afraid.
"chamss baby don't worry I'm fine, I just wanna have fresh air, and feel sea waft on my face that's all". I assured her.
" Okey Rojy as you want".chamss said
"Ok than sweetie meet me at park when you finish, love you sis" I said
