The next morning i awoke to the sound of my brothers voice, ” rise and shine.. Sleepy head.. Or you going to miss fajr”
I got up, read namaaz, dhor and then we lazed around while mum got our swim stuff together. Sunscreen was lathered on our hands and faces, because my mum hates it when I get sunburnt and that happens like in a couple of minutes… We were off to Atlantis in no time.. My beach abaya donned and my huge Bvalgari sunglasses covering half my face…
I was waiting in the line for the “LEAP OF FAITH” with Yusuf, when something made me look down there by the beach… A tear fell onto my hand as my eyesight blurred.. There before my eye was a girl about 12 years of age of African origin struggling to get to the tap which was a few meters away as she had only one leg… In that moment my heart went out to her and I thanked the almighty from my heart for all the blessings and moreover all the luxuries he has bestowed me with.. She finally made it to the tap and drank water using her hands as a cup.. She soaked her few pieces of bread or what looked like bread from up there in the water and ate it…
“Maliha…. Maliha….” (Tapping my shoulder) Yusuf said
“Huh?? Oh sorry” I said wiping my tears
“You okay ?? ” he asked, a worried look on his face
“Yeah, no I’m fine….”
“Sure you want to do this?”
“Yep…. And is going first..” I said pushing him back
“Okay Ms. Bully.. Be my guest.. But just remember I won’t be there to receive you at the bottom ” he said with that Damon kind of grin on his face while I stepped onto the rubber padding at the top of the slide….
You know the whole cross hands and legs thing… So I screamed the entire way down, but it was soo short the time, it happened like in seconds…
I got out of the water bed at the bottom and that girls image popped into my head again.. Just then a splash of water brought me back to reality..
“What you so deep in thought about?”
“Ummm nothing ”
“Oh come on I don’t even know you that well and I can tell that’s a lie.. What happened?”
