After collecting our bags, we headed to go get something to eat.. Well Traditional Durban airport food, Panarottis.. After eating to our hearts content, it was time to go get a car at Dollar Thrifty. Long story short, dad thinks that it is more convenient to hire a car… So, anyway back to the fishy part of my life.. We jumped into the car and I almost immediately opened the first packet, removed the book and there was a note in the packet, which initially I had thought was a slip, but turns out it was a letter.. It read
Okay, so Sabeeha, I know you think I’m the randomest of people and don’t know who I am.. Well actually you do, but anyway… I saw you in that book shop and I thought that I’d grant you this gift, as a token of gratitude for what a gift you have been to me.. From now on, when strangers give you things, take it with a smile, because well, I’m too afraid to speak to you in person.. You can call me a girl, but I guess that’s just my nature.. It took a lot of guts to write this letter in the first place.. I really do hope you enjoy your book and the surprises.. 😜
I put the letter away.. And couldn’t help the smile that formed on my face… I don’t know who this person is, but they made me smile already.. I put that packet away, and sang to the nazm currently playing on Al-Ansaar.. It was quite a long drive to my aunts house… When we arrived, it was all sadness and tears.. My uncles sick.. I pulled out my iPhone after greeting.. There was a few snapchat notifications, a few instagram likes and comments and about 3 BBM’s.. It was from all my class friends and there were a few from family members… I tucked it back into my jeans pocket, and went to go help serve dessert..
Well, my weekend was pretty ordinary.. Books, mostly.. And assisting.. I really hope that he gets better.. I hate it when the mood is this dull…
I got home.. !!! School was tomorrow and I had MacBeth questions.. Grade 11 is amazing, don’t get me wrong, but this work load is a bit too much.. I mean for one subject, you get like 3 sets of homework… I jumped into bed and then remember about that other packet… I opened it to find a wooden box.. It looked like it was from the 60’s, but when I opened it, there was something that dazzled more than I could ever imagine.. It was a necklace pendant, in peridot my birthstone.. Yeps, I’m an August baby… This person was spending a lot on me and it was getting even weirder, but nothing ever indicated that he was from my town, let alone my SCHOOL..
