“Sir... your interview is at five o'clock, at one o'clock you have a lunch with the foreign minister, and... at the end of the afternoon, exactly at six o'clock, you must meet with some members of the U.S. consulate. ....”Saeed nodded as he finished signing some papers that Nasser had passed to him earlier, and then let out the air at the heaviness his body felt.He could notice his cousin's smile as he denied, then his frown deepened, wanting to know why he was smiling in the midst of so much work.He motioned to his general secretary, who Lia painstakingly interviewed for the position, and after the door closed, he leaned his body back, craning his neck and watching his cousin closely.“What's so funny?” Nasser widened his smile further at her serious question.“That one o'clock lunch thing, it's not going to happen....”“I know...” Saeed sucked in a breath and rubbed his eyes. “But the minister will understand....”“Of course... Who could refute the Emir? Or even worse... to Mrs.
“Don't cry please...” Anne pouted as she wiped her tears and then denied.“I just imagine we'll have miles separating us every day....”“Anne... you know you just have to talk and I'll send you...” this time it was Saeed who interrupted and Anne sent him a hard look.“But it's not the same...” Lia bit her lip at the tension and then denied, but before she could say anything, Saeed intervened again.“You don't have to discuss it with me if you don't want to, Lia can arrange a good position for you in Kuwait, and I won't have anything to do with it.”Anne's eyes widened and then she looked at Lia as if she wanted to scream out of frustration.“Love... I think I'd better say goodbye to my sister, alone.”Saeed smiled radiantly nodded and raised his hands in resignation, then gave a short kiss on Lia's head.“Don't be late, there's a plane waiting for us.” “Okay...”As soon as Saeed started walking towards the private jet, Anne denied in a reproachful tone.“What does he think he is?”“T
It was four o'clock in the morning when Lia's laughter echoed through the room again, and Saeed couldn't help but widen his mouth again denying towards her, and outlining her perfect face with his fingers.“It doesn't matter that she hates me... I deserve it....”“She doesn't hate you,” Lia replied, sitting up in bed. “She's like that... it's a little difficult, but when she lets you in, she's wonderful.”Saeed lifted his shoulders.“It's Ian who has to worry about that... I only have eyes for my habibi.....”Lia laughed again and then brought her hands to that precise face that looked more beautiful than ever to her.“Have you noticed that we haven't had dinner? We are irresponsible with our baby?”He clenched his jaw and then brought his hand to her belly completely serious.“He understands us perfectly... he knows we are still anxious. My son is intelligent and must learn from the womb, that we have to sacrifice some things to gain others.”Lia denied, smiling.“He doesn't know any
When his phone vibrated with intensity next to him, Saeed's heart leaped like never before, and he turned to find the number he expected. He slid his finger across the screen and walking to the terrace, watched as the view of London dazzled before his eyes.He was on the top floor of a large building, and the entire floor was at his disposal.“Yes?”“Sir... she has accepted... I'm waiting for her right now in the parking lot of her building.” The air left his body heavily and then he breathed in one, which seemed clean and light, a product of the answer he was receiving.“Perfect... How? How did she look?” “I think nervous... but happy?”“Well... call me when they're on their way.”“Yes, sir, I'll let you know.”Saeed ended the call and then sucked on the cigar between his fingers to look up at the black sky and let the air out of his mouth slowly.His smile widened a little as he took another drag.He felt like a child. Perhaps he was never at the mercy of this feeling, waiting to
“I've been given some sort of special leave... although in a few weeks I'll be back on concurrent flights....”“Don't stop on my account... I'll be all right...” when Anne heard Lia, she stopped folding some blankets in front of her, and sat down on the foot of the bed.“I don't like to see you sad. I think you are thinking that I'm happy because you left that man, but this is not what I think... Lia...he dragged a man until he was skinless, this is not just a bad man, this is a cruel man... a....”Lia raised her palm as she denied.“I don't need you to repeat all this to me every other day, Anne... I know who Saeed is.”Anne looked down and then saw her bare belly which, today, was four months pregnant. It was much more noticeable now.“How's the job going?” Her question made Lia look up at her and close the laptop on her lap.“I think well... Milla has gotten several tasks for me that I can do from the computer. She says I'm helping her a lot, while she's taking care of meetings....
“This is... a crazy thing, I must admit,” Lia smiled sitting on her bed as she saw her sister hanging around the room, which in the past she had shared with Saeed.She was finishing collecting some of her things she didn't take last time for the sake of speed, when she had tried to run away, but now that she thought about it, there wasn't much she had here either.“Are you going to take the jewelry and stuff?” Anne turned to cross her arms in front of her, waiting for an answer, and Lia quickly denied.“No... just my clothes, shoes and some things I brought when I came here... it won't be much.”Anne seemed to hesitate for a moment, and stealthily sat down beside her.“This man won't give you anything for the baby? Well... we don't need it anyway.”Lia put on a serious face and turned to Anne.“His name is Saeed, Anne... he is still my husband and the father of this baby....”“Okay...”“He said that we would be protected by him... that I signed an agreement where I got a lot of money,
“Don't separate me from him... he's my son too...” Lia clenched her jaw hard when she heard those words.“You thought I didn't...” She tried to pull his hand away from her belly, but Saeed didn't let her, instead, he strengthened his touch making her shudder completely-“Saeed... stop it...”“I was tricked, Lia... you... you don't know anything about what happened.”She stared at him for a few long seconds, then denied.“But not by me... I never deceived you, I was always there for you, without thinking about me, always about you... I came to this country and I only trusted you, I loved you blindly, Saeed, and everything you told me was sacred to me. You decided to push me aside, in spite of everything I did for you you decided to believe in others but me... If it hadn't been for your cousin I...” “I had hurt Nasser...” Lia opened her eyes wide, cutting off his speech.“What? -How?”“I shot him...”Lia's hands went onto her mouth completely shocked.“Oh, my God...! This isn't possibl
Lia could hear some whispers, her nose inhaled a smell much like coffee, as her head was adjusting in an attempt to open her eyes.She blinked slowly to see blurry images that, little by little, were appearing sharp before her vision.She thought she was still in a deep sleep, however, because her first sight, was to find Anne with a cardboard cup in her hands that was sparkling smoke, and, in addition, Ian was behind her with his hands on her shoulders.The image brought a smile to her face as she denied.“I'm dreaming... the impossible...” but as she whispered the words, she could see how agitatedly Anne looked up and detailed it with terror and some emotion on her face.Lia's smile faded instantly as she saw her sister hurriedly put the coffee aside, and in hurried steps approached towards her.She was definitely not dreaming.“Lia...?”Her cheeks were tackled by her sister who shed tears in a snatching manner from one moment to the next.Lia took her hands and gave her a few short
