Read Story: SEASON 1 EPISODE 23
Trust me you don’t wanna miss this
story, especially this chapter
I had no idea where I was going, but I
knew that I won’t be going home
tonight. My heart hurt and I hated this
feeling. Farid was unworthy of me, he
didn’t deserve my appreciation, my care,
my attention or my lo… nevermind.
I called Sobia as soon as I got inside the
cab and informed her that I am coming
to her place.
Sobia’s mother was out of town to meet
her sister-in-law so Sobia was all alone.
‘Wow, you look stunning’ She greeted
me as soon as she opened the door.
I walked inside to give her a hug.
I held on to her for extra few minutes
and she let me.
‘You okay?’ She whispered.
I shook my head.
‘Oh Laila, common let me make you
After making some hot cup of tea and
warming up some leftover pizza, we sat
down with our food in her bedroom.
‘Here, get into something comfy, I’ll go
and grab and an extra blanket. I
changed into some comfortable plain
white pajama set.
‘This is so soft’ I told her when she
walked in with a huge blanket.
After finishing up our food, I laid down
on her bed and closed my eyes while
Sobia massaged my head.
‘I have never seen you like this’ She said
breaking the silence.
‘Me too’ Just when I said that, my phone
started ringing. It was Farid.
I ignored it.
‘What’s going on between you guys?’
She finally asked.
‘I don’t know, I can’t be around him
Sobia. He is toxic for me’ I opened my
eyes and sat up to face her.
‘Why did you marry him then?’ I knew
she’ll ask me this question one day and I
was ready to answer her questions with
I finally told her everything from start to
‘You idiot’ She looked at me as if I have
grown an extra head.
‘ I had to Sobia, it was a chaos and I had
no other option’
‘He blackmailed you, Laila’
My phone rang again, it was Farid.
‘So now what?’
‘Can I stay with you tonight?’ I asked
‘Of course but that’s not what I
meant…what I mean is how long are you
going to keep this up for?’
‘I have four months contract with him.
After that, we will be separated and I’ll
go back to my old life’
‘Do you think he’ll let you?’
‘Yes, why wouldn’t he?’
She laughed at me.
‘Why are you laughing Sobia?’
‘You don’t see it do you?’
‘I don’t think he’ll ever leave you’ She
smiled at me and went off to sleep.
What if Sobia is right? No, she is not.
Farid and I would never…Right?
Before laying down, I checked my phone
again. I had 8 miss calls from Farid and 3
text messages. I opened the messages
and it said.
F: F--k where the hell are you?
F: Call me back dammit.
F:Come back home right now.
I ignored all of that, he is just angry at
me, not worried. Besides Melissa is there
to keep him company. All he really cares
about his money and that stupid
property from his grandfather’s will, not
I suddenly woke up and it sounded like
someone was knocking on the door
loudly. I checked the time and it was
I nudged Sobia and both of us walked
downstairs to check.
Sobia peeked outside through the
window and looked back at me with a
‘Farid’ She mouthed.
Ya Allah …how did he know I was here?
Sobia was about to open the door when
I stopped her.
‘Don’t he’ll leave after’ I whispered.
‘He’ll wake up the neighbours’ She
‘This is not good’
‘He looks so scary’ She informed me.
‘I know you are there Laila, I won’t leave
unless you open the door’ He yelled from
the other side.
‘How does he even know that you are
‘He knows I have no other place to go
to’ I answered.
‘Should I call the cops?’
‘No use…go upstairs, I’ll talk to him’ I
knew Farid, he won’t give up unless he
gets his way.
‘No, you go and I will talk’
‘He knows already, he will check the
room and do something stupid’
Without arguing, she left me and walked
up to her room. When I heard her close
her bedroom door. I opened the front
door and saw a very angry looking man.
‘What the f--k is wrong with you?’ He
walked inside without any invitation and
closed the door shut.
I stayed silent. He was nowhere done
‘Why didn’t you answer my call? I asked
around and nobody knew where you
went? I told you to f-----g stay with
me? Are you that stupid? What if
something would have happened to
you? Do you even know what kind of
people are out here in the street at
night?’ He eyes were red and pulled
‘Say something’ He shouted and it made
‘I am fine, I wasn’t feeling well’ I turned
around but he held me shoulder and
turned me around to face him again.
‘You are coming with me’
‘No’ I said weakly.
‘Why?’ He never asked why.
‘I just don’t feel like it’ I looked down,
trying to hold back my tears.
He scanned my face with intensity in his
‘Why?’ He took a step forward to me.
I took a step back, he grabbed my waist
to keep me in place.
‘Why?’ He brought his lips close to my
ears and I shivered.
‘Were you jealous of Melissa? Huh? Is
that why you left?’ He nibbled my ear
and I pushed him back.
‘Stop’ I yelled.
‘It’s true isn’t it wifey?’ He smirked at
‘You are wrong, I am not jealous of
anyone, especially your girlfriend’.
‘She’s not my girlfriend’ He got serious
I stayed quiet.
‘She is not my girlfriend’ He repeated.
‘ You don’t have to give me any
explanations, I don’t care if she is your
girlfriend….I could care less…’ I snapped,
glaring up at him.
‘Shut up’ His eyebrows pulled in and he
grabbed each side of my face, slamming
his lips against mine.
I protested but it was no use.
‘Shut up, Laila’ he said, kissing me over
