Hopefully this will be a super long post!
That night Naser’s family came over. Fajer was the first to greet them at the door.
“Faye wala Fajer?” asked Naser’s mom, who was the first one to walk into their house.
“Hala fajoor, shlounich?” Naser said with a smile beaming. “He whitened his teeth” she thought “3abala he’s going to impress Faye? Who am I kidding, Faye would die for that smile.”
She didn’t reply back and turned to his dad.
“Hala 3amy, shlounick?”
“Tamam, ou shlounich entay bnayty? 3asach eb khair?”
“El7imdilah… Um etfathilaw el7een anady oumy ou oboy”
“Ou Faye” Naser added who stood in the same spot as his parents found their way to their living room.
“ If your parents were here, I would have stabbed you in the eye with my heels. Your not getting Faye. She doesn’t want you, just for the heads up”
Naser’s world came crashing down.
His smile in less than a second turned to frown. All he could see was this little girl telling him he wont get the women he loved. What the reason he;s coming here anyway? It was to see if Faye accepted him to be her hubby, till eternity.
“Weeh weh! Faye laish ma nadaiteeny!!” Her mom rushed down the stairs as her shoes made a flip flopping noise.
“Kent yaya a93ad”
Her mom cut her off, naday oboch ga3ed e6al33 el akhbar, ma yadry ena w9elaw”
Fajer took one last glance at Naser who turned white and took off her to call her dad.
Once upstairs she went to her dad’s room “Baba, ohma ta7at”
“yala kanyy” he sstood up but continued to watch the news.
“Baba tara ohma ta7at!!” she told him a second time
“6al3a 3ala oumich, chabreet” her dad kissed her forehead and left the room.
“Psssst, Psssst” Faye called opening her rooms door just an inch wide.
“Besmila sfheech! Tara ohma ta7at mu ehny”
“Adry silly” and that is when she opened her door wide open “do I look bad?”
Fajer eyed her from head to toe. “No, do you wana look bad?”
“YES FAJOOR ALAH YKHALICH HELP ME!”
Fajer went into her sisters room “jeans and a tee wont make you look bad, apply eyeliner and mascara”
“AGOULICH I WANA LOOK BAD YAL GHABIYA! NOT GOOD”
“ I know !! Trust me on this one”
Faye applied both eyeliner and the mascara before she started tickling her.
Faye started screaming, laughing and crying all at the same time. Her mascara and eyeliner saaa7.
“Take a look at your face now” said fajer
Faye took one look of herself in the mirror “YOU’RE A GENUIS! What other tricks do you have up your sleeve?”
“Where the Argan oil?”
“In the bathroom”
“Yeebly eya” said Fajer
Faye got up and got the oil, then faye applied it only to the roots of her hair
“WAI3 IT LOOKS LIKE I CAN FRY EGGS WITH THE OIL ON MY HAIR” Faye said shocked at what she was see’ing in the mirror
“I know” Fajer said with a smile that seemed it was going to rip the sides of her lips. “Do you like there jeans?”
Faye looked at them “no I was actually going to throw them away but …..”
Fajer cut her off “scissors please” and she started tearing and snipping pieces the jeans. “Don’t touch my masterpiece and now u are free to go down stairs.
“yes master” and faye walked out her room with a pair of bathroom flip flips
Just as she reached the stairs her mom met her. Shocked at the appearance of her daughter she pulled her back upstairs before the guests were able to see her.
“Alah yel3an ebleesich” and then she started laughing covering her mouth. “Semsawya eb nafsich!”
When Fajer saw that her mom was laughing she said “Hatha my masterpieces, shrayich?
“Taboun etkhar3oun el rayal? KHARA3TAW EL YENANWA EL IB HAL BAIT” All three were laughing hysterically “Mama goumay ghaslay ou nezlay, etha entay mataena me7na emgha9beenich”
The sister’s hi-fived each other. Fajer went into her room to wash up and Faye went downstairs with her mom.
“Haa wain el 3aroos” said Um Na9er
“Kany” Faye said as she walked down the stairs.
Salemat as though there was nothing wrong with her earlier. Salemat 3ala Naser as well.
After dinner when the 3azeema came to an end, Oum Naser spoke again “E7na yaina enchouf rad Faye 3al mawthou3 el etkalamna feeh”
“Khalty ana lail7een 9ghera mu nawya atzawaj. Tawny bedait ashteqil, ou lail7een mu emfakra bel zawaj"
