Read Story: SEASON 1 EPISODE 24
As soon as our lips touched, I lost senses
of everything. He was too intense. It felt
like I was going to hell. It felt like a sin
and I didn’t care. His hands around me
become loose and he brought his hands
to my cheeks. The rough sensation
quickly turned into a sweet paradise. He
brought his lips down my throat and I
felt a sharp pain on my skin when he
s----d into my neck. That’s when I
recollected my sense.
‘Farid’ He didn’t recognize my voice at
first, he ignored me and continued
having his way.
‘Farid’ I said again and I made sure my
voice was loud enough for him to hear.
This time, he listened to me and let go
of me immediately. I looked at him and
saw his dark aura, I never noticed earlier
but he was intoxicated. His eyes were
gentle yet heavy and his lips were
swollen from kissing me. I looked away
from him right away and pulled my
shirt’s collar up to hide the marks that
he left of my shoulders.
‘Please leave Farid’ I wanted him to leave
before I changed my mind. I was scared
that if he stayed behind, we might do
something that we’ll both regret later.
We need to stay far away from each
other as possible. I can’t let this go on
The gentleness in Farid’s eyes washed
away from right after I told him to leave.
‘Yeah it’s not like this was anything
special anyways’ He stormed right out of
Sobia’s house and smacked the door
shut as loud as possible. I ran towards
the window and saw him smashing his
hands to the hood of his car before
I wanted him to go, but his last
comment did hurt me. For him, it might
have been nothing special, but for me, it
was a memory that I’ll never forget. I
just had my first kiss.
After a while, I walked upstairs to
Sobia’s room and I knew she was
awake but she pretended to be asleep
and I was very thankful for it. It would
have been really hard to explain
everything to her. What if she heard us?
Did she know that we …? I guess I’ll
never know. I was so embarrassed.
Never in a million years I would have
imagined that one day I’ll have my first
ever kiss with a guy like Farid. I guess
we really can’t tell what’s written in our
When I woke up, there was so sign of
Sobia, turned out she went out to me my
favorite cream cheese and bagel from a
bakery near her house. When she
returned and we started eating our food
she popped up the question.
‘So last night…’She chuckled. Ya Allah she
‘Let’s not make a huge deal about this
okay?’ I was feeling so shy.
‘Oh no my best friend, we are not done.
Not even close. You said you don’t like
him and yesterday you were all moaning
and stuff. It was so annoying, I bet the
entire neighbourhood heard you’ She
laughed and I dropped my bagel on the
plate. I was horrified.
‘Don’t play dumb now’ She winked.
‘Everything happened so quickly’ My
mind went back to thinking about
yesterday night. Yes, everything did
happen quickly. His one move changed
everything. I should have stopped him, I
know I could have if I tried, but I didn’t
and I knew why…because I wanted it as
much as he did and I hated myself for
wanting someone who didn’t want me
the same way.
‘No Sobia, it’s not like that. It was a
I knew I’ll have to face Farid one day or
another and I couldn’t stay with Sobia
any longer because her mother was
coming back home today, which meant
that I’ll have to go back to Farid’s place.
I knew he left his place at around
11:00am so I decided to wait until then
before going down there. It was about
11:30am when I reached his house, I
checked the living room and the kitchen.
There was no sign of Farid anywhere.
Thank god he is not here. I walked to my
room and saw that everything was all
clean and my dirty clothes were neatly
washed and folded. At least I won’t have
to worry about that anymore.
I was putting all of my clothes inside the
cupboard when Farid walked right into
‘You’re back’ It sounded more like a
question. Maybe he thought I’ll never
come back. Did he miss me?
‘Yeah, I hope that’s okay. Sobia’s mother
is back so I didn’t…’
‘Yeah, no…it’s okay.’ He said nervously.
‘I am sorry’ I blurted out these words
‘Just…about yesterday.’ After putting my
clothes inside, I walked away from him
and stood near the bookshelf to keep
some distance between us.
‘Okay’ He came closer to me, enough for
me to reach out and touch him, but
there was still some distance.
‘For telling you to leave or kissing you
back…everything that happened. It was
wrong and irresponsible and I am sorry’
I told him, avoiding his eyes. I know I
shouldn’t be the one to apologize but I
don’t want him to think that I liked
kissing him or give him any wrong
‘It was just a kiss Laila, it’s not like it
meant anything. I was drunk and you
were there, it was just a matter of time. I
would have kissed any other girl the
same way if she was there instead of
you’ His light response didn’t reach his
smile that was plastered on his face. He
said those words to hurt me. I knew it
the second he said it. He can’t be that
insensitive, can he? Everything about
him in this moment was making me
‘Good’ I smiled back. If he wanted to be
such an arse then fine.
‘I’ll be home late’ He said quietly as he
walked out of my room. There were two
things that my fake husband never failed
to do, first,humiliate me and second hurt
me and each time he did it, it hurt me
more than before.I knew there was
something good, some kindness left in
him but he always covered it with hate
and anger. Why was he like this?
