Read Story: SEASON 1 EPISODE 13
‘OMG you came’ Sobia yelled from across
the hall as soon as she spotted us.
‘Sobiaaaa ….’ I ran across the room and
hugged my best friend. It was such a
bittersweet time. I didn’t know whether
to smile or cry so I ended up doing both.
‘Shhh don’t cry silly girl’ She let go of me
and Rafay joined. This entire time Farid
was next to me. He didn’t walk away. I
always thought he was one of those
guys who would walk away from
emotional things. It was surprising to
see him standing without making any
‘Congrats Rafay, I am honestly so happy
for both of you. You idiot you should
have told me that you were going to
propose to her, I thought we were
friends’ I made a sad face and faked my
‘Don’t be mad, I didn’t tell anyone except
my family members. I was so scared’
Rafay was so shy, whereas Sobia was
bright and confident. Despite the fact
that they both were polar opposite they
still made such a perfect couple.
‘So when is the wedding?’ I looked at
the newly engaged couple.
‘In six months’ She smiled and looked
down on the floor. Aww.
‘Masha Allah, its perfect’ I hugged her
‘How did you get here?’ Rafay asked me
and suddenly my cheeks went red.
‘Farid went to pick her up’ Sobia winked
at Rafay and both of them shamelessly
giggled right in front me. Before it gets
more awkwards, I excused myself from
them and went on to meet Sobia’s
mother and Rafays parents.
The rest of the evening was pleasant. It
was such an amazing night. Not only the
newly wed couple seemed happy but
also my best friend and her fiance were
over the moon.
When the evening came to an end and
most of the guests including the bride
and the groom left, all the young ones
stayed back to clean up the venue. Yes,
Farid stayed back as well.
‘I am going to clean the pool area’ Today
was a full moon and the entire pool area
was covered with moonlight and
gorgoues silver decor. I grabbed the
opportunity and volunteered to clean up
The pool area was so calm and quite.
Everyone else was inside doing the nasty
work such as piking up leftover from the
tables and taking care of the garbage,
whereas I was just picking up soda
bottles and sweet wrappers from the
When I was finished, I looked inside and
everyone was still working so I put away
the garbage and walked back to the
pool. I pulled my trousers up and
dropped my feel into the pool and felt
cold water beneath my feet. The stars
seemed brighter than before and the
moon seemed slighly bigger as well. I
‘Its beautiful isn’t it?’ I heard him from
behind. I recognized Farid voice
straightaway so I didn’t get scared.
‘Hmm’ I kept looking at the sky. Farid
walked up to me and followed my gaze
to the stars.
‘Mind if I sit?’ He asked for my
None of us said anything and it didn’t
feel awkward. Ammi once told me how
with some people being silent doesn’t
feel uncomfortable. It feels right. I
glanced over at Farid and he was still
looking at the sky. I kept looking at him
and for the first time, I didn’t see some
brat rich kid, I saw a kind young man
who may look tough and bad, but under
all the hard shell there is still some
Farid looked at me with such a strange
expression that I couldn’t figure out.
I got up from the pool and walked
inside without saying another word.
‘All done?’ I asked Rafay.
‘Yeah we are just putting away some
stuff in the car.’
When everything was packed we all
walked to the parking lot. Farid was
nowhere in sight.
‘Oh shoot, I forgot the fairy lights’ Sobia
said to me when we approached the
‘Sobia…you are so annoying I asked you
five times before leaving if you got
everything’ I snapped at her.
‘Hey what happened?’ Rafay asked us.
‘It’s okay, I’ll go get it, the security
guards are still there. I’ll get the lights’ I
said to them and ran back to the hall.
The entire hall was empty, but thankfully
some of the lights were will on.
I walked to the stage area and spotted
the fairy lights quickly. They were
completely tangled with the red
I was in such a hurry that I stumbled
over my duppata and before I could hit
the floor down, I was caught. I thought
I died or something because I kept
screaming until I felt someone’s hand on
‘Shhhh’ I heard.
I opened my eyes and I saw Farid. He
held me still, maybe I was not ready for
him to let go just yet. I was breathing so
loud that even I could hear myself.
‘You’re okay’ He asked me once he
steadied me on the floor.
‘Yeahh’ I placed my hand over my heart
to make it stop pumping so fast.
I took one step back and felt an electric
pain on my left foot. It hurt so bad.
‘ What are you doing here?’ I asked him.
‘I forgot my car keys so I came here
‘Did you find it?’
‘Yea’ He pulled his keys out to show me
and walked towards me.
‘Let me get this for you’ He offered me.
I pushed my hand back.
‘I can carry it, we should go’ I took
another step back and felt the same
sharp pain on my foot.
I closed my eyes in pain.
‘You sprained your ankle’ He took
another step forward.
‘I said I am fine.’ I took another deep
breath, got myself together and took
few more steps. It hurt so bad but the
parking lot was not too far away. I’ll get
there in no time I told myself. before I
could step out from the hall, Farid
walked past me angrily and stood in
front of me blocking my way.
Before I could finish, he picked me in a
bridal style and started walking.
‘What the…let go of me’ I yelled and
pushed his chest but it was no use.
He didn’t say anything and kept walking
‘I said let go’ He still didn’t listen.
He walked us to his car and I noticed
that everyone left. He finally put me
down and unlocked his car.
‘Where is everyone?’ I asked him.
‘Why did they leave me?’ I dialed Sobia’s
number and she picked up. Farid was in
his seat but he didn’t leave.
‘Why did you leave Sobia?’ I yelled across
‘Aray, everyone was getting late. Farid is
there right? He said he will drop you.
Okay samra aunty is calling, just come
home and we’ll talk’ She hung up. Allah I
don’t believe this girl. Hell with her.
‘Ready now?’ Farid asked me while
smiling when I sat in the front seat and
put my seat belt on.
‘I guess.’ I looked head and we drove
