Salmas point of view:
The call I received in the morning was constantly playing on my mind….I know I shouldn’t worry about it…but by now you all know what a stress pot I am…..I stress about everything…that’s just me…
Seeing aqeel after the whole day just did something to my tummy….I just wanted to hug him and not let go….but I had to behave..we were not in our own home…
However he kept on stealing glances at me whenever he could with that gorgeous smile of his..
I know this man loves me with everything that he has..and I don’t ever want to lose him….he’s become my life, my everything….
Supper was great as usual…fay always goes the extra mile for everyone…and the hot malva with custard AND ice-cream was just the best of it all….I love my food…..not as much as aqEel…but almost equally..lol
I was ever too glad to go home, not because I didn’t enjoy my time with fay…I really did..I missed her the whole week, so it was great catching up…
But I missed my time with my hubby….I couldn’t wait to be home and in his arms again…..
I have to tell him about the phone call still…I hope he doesn’t freak out….I know how certain things can just irk the living daylights out of him..
Once we got into the car, aqeel looked happier than I was…and all the way home he didn’t let go of my hand…
Aqeel:”how was your first day without me sweetheart?”
Me:”awful…ok….crazy….boring…..I missed you….too long….”
Aqeel:”ok let’s start with your first description….(Pause)…awful?why baby?”
Me:”um…….can we go to the last description rather(shifting awkwardly in my seat)?”
Aqeel:”now we’ll definitely start with it (raising his right brow)”
Me:(sigh)….”I was waiting till we got home atleast to discuss this”
Aqeel:”babe….spill it…what was so awful about your day….?”
Me:”err…I missed you too much and that made it awful?”
Aqeel:”(kissing my hand)..I know you missed me but there’s something else you’re not telling me….”
Me:(sigh)….”Okayyy….(Pause)..I got a call this morning from an unknown number…..”
Me:”I don’t exactly know who it was….at first I thought it was your cousin rubeena…but this girls voice was much more squeaky…..(Pause)….I’m not too sure, but I was thinking maybe it was…err..your…ex wife”
Aqeel:”she does have a terribly squeaky voice(pulling his face)..but what makes you think it was her?”
Me:”because she was angry that I stole what was hers and that I’m living and using everything that belonged to HER initially….and that I’m just eating all HER leftovers…..”
I looked at aqeel with my eyes wide….
Aqeel:”sorry….but that’s what she is…she F***** up…..now she’s trying to mess with you!….what else did she say?”
Me:”she threatened to make my life a misery and make sure that she breaks our marriage…”
Aqeel was angry….he was clenching his teeth and his face was full with fury….he remained silent for a while…
Aqeel:”why didn’t you phone me immediately love?”
Me:”because I don’t want to bother you at work…”
Aqeel:”you’re my wife…..phone me whenever you want to ok..even if its 50 times a day…if I’m busy, I’ll tell you….”
Aqeel:”so now, what to do about this? You still don’t want to change your number?”
I looked at him with a guilty look….
Aqeel:”ok…fine…then from now on, no answering private calls ok?and no answering any calls from numbers that you don’t know….is that ok baby?and if this happens again, we’re going to have to change your number ok? The thing is, I can block her number from phoning you..but I don’t know if she’s using the same number and she can possibly try from another number….and if she tries one more thing I’m laying a charge and getting a restraining order..”
Me:”I don’t think we’ll need to go that far honey..I’m sure she’s just threatening me….”
Aqeel:”I don’t trust her..she and rubeena are evil in every possible way and I care too much about you sweetheart….I don’t know what I’ll do without you now that I have you as mine….you’ve become my everything and I can’t live without you…..no-ones going to break this marriage ok?”
I smiled gratefully…..
Me:”I love you…”
We reached the apartment and aqeel jumped off to collect the mail from the mailbox at the entrance…and then we proceeded to park the car….
I was so relieved to be home…what a different day and so tiring also….I can’t wait to just read my esha and jump straight into bed…..need to change my entire routine….
Tomorrow my life starts, no more eating everywhere for supper, I can prepare a lovely meal of my own inshallah….time to settle in….
Aqeel:”babes…..there’s mail for you(confused)”
Me:”huh?who would send me mail so soon?its only a week that I’m here..that’s strange…”
I took the envelope from aqeel…it read: “to salma….the wife of aqeel”
That was even more strange….they don’t mention my surname or aqeels surname….but wife of aqeel?
I carfully opened the envelope and was absolutely surprised at what I found inside……
