Past, A Window to the Future~an AsYa SS Part 12

Part 12

“Ji Ammi,” said Asad as he got up to leave.  He had just took a step when Shehry came back in the kitchen with a very worried looking face!
“Kya hua Shehry?” Said Asad
“Zoya…….”
“Zoya!?” Said Asad as his face went white as paper, “what happened Zoya!? Is she ok!?”
“What?…..oh! Right! No, Zoya is fine but I’m gonna KILL her!!!! She phoned and told everyone!!! Could you believe it!? She TOLD everyone and I’m still sitting here eating and I’ve never even talked to Najma!!! Ever!!”
Asad couldn’t stop himself from laughing out loud on this one!! It was true knowing Zoya, it was expected, but not that fast! They hadn’t even left the dining table yet! Allah miyan that girl! Did Asad just say that!? He smiled thinking how she always said, “Allah miyan, what wrong with you Mr. khan?” He was use to it by now! He found it annoying at first but now it was like a compliment he got from her telling him that she had been paying so much attention to him that she was actually bothered by it enough to say her famous line…….yes! This was the day! When you would catch Asad Ahmed Khan in love and dreaming away.
Shehry had settled down and was finishing his food when Asad decided to go check on Najma and talk to her about how she was feeling.
“Zoya, yeh aap kya kar rahe ho?” Najma was saying trying to hold Zoya hands who was busily tying a blindfold around Najma’s eyes.
“Kya yeh Karna zaroori hai, Zoya, I can’t see anything.”
“That’s the point, tamatar!”
“Lakin aap kar kya rahe ho!?”
“Ho Gaya!!! Ok! Now! Think about your future and dreams and tell me what you see!”
“Zoya? Yeh kya keh rahe hai aap?”
“Tamatar! I want to know what you want! Remember that one time where YOU asked how I wanted my future to be, I told you na! Now it’s ur turn! Challo time waste mat karo! C’mon tellz me baby!!” Zoya said winking.
“Ok! Fine!”
“Uh…….I see him….Zoya unka last name kya hai?”
“What!? Seriously tamatar!? Yaar itna romantic moment ruin kardi ya! Bilkool apne bhaijaan JAISA!”
“Ok sorry!” Zoya Said when Najma made a face, “his full name is Shehryyaar Muhammad Asif! Aur nikah ke baad, Tum ban jayo gi ‘Najma Shehryyaar Muhammad Asif!” Zoya smiled as she saw Najma blushing. What was unexpected was what happened next……
Najma slowly raised her hand and touched Zoya’s face and told Zoya, hmmmm….jaise aap ban jaiyenge ‘Zoya Asad Ahmed Khan’! Nahi?” This time Zoya blushed and Najma said, “arre wah! Never thought I would live to see the day when Zoya Farooki will blush!”
“Tumme kasie patta? Tumhara blindfold acshi tarah nahi bandha kya?”
“Arre Zoya aap ke face pe hand hai mera, aur aap oven se bhi Zadda garam ho rahe ho!!” Said Najma laughing and Zoya said, “challo back to work!” Smacking Najma playfully.
“Ok! Uh……I see him….Asif ji ko Dekh Sakti hu……patta hai Zoya, mujhe hamesha se ek Asia patti chahiye tha Jo ki mujhe mereliye pyar Kare!” Removing her blindfold Najma went on!
“You! You are so beautiful! You are skinny! You eat whatever you want, drink whatever you want, do whatever you want, you’re so independent and you’re so brave! I always wanted a sister like you, in fact sometimes I WANT TO BE U! And it’s not that bhaijaan never let’s me do anything it’s that…..well…..me…I Donot want to go outside cuz I’m afraid because I can’t lose weight that no one will like me! I was always afraid no one will want to marry me, but today, today he made me feel like a princess. Like I was the most beautiful and precious thing he had ever seen.”
“Shhhhhh…….Najma……never say that again! You are by far the most beautiful person I’ve ever met! Phoophi ke baad ofcourse!” Zoya said as Najma smiled.
Asad whipped his tears and went towards the door.
That’s all folks!

Past, A Window to the Future~an AsYa SS Part 11

Part 11

They had their dinner in small talks.  Nothing unusual because even though every one was excited for Zoya and Asad to enter a new relationship, Zoya was still very upset about her recent relegation of her father.  The way Shehry was staring at Najma and being awfully quiet, Asad knew that he surely felt something for Najma! And not in that creepy “checking a girl out” or “teasing a girl” type of way but rather in a very mature “soulmate” type way! It would make sense too! If Asad recalled correctly he was a firm believer in soulmates! He was happy for Najma! He knew that Najma will make a great wife of her future husband but he always feared that he won’t be able to find someone suitable for his baby sis! But now he was relieved! Even though he had only known Shehry for a few hours he knew the second he made up his mind that he would never regret the decision, so he spoke up, “Ammi, vaise Pehle Najma ka nikah mere se Pehle hona chahiye! Vo larki hai!”

Asad fought very hard to hold his laughter as he saw the way Shehry looked up and his face went ghostly white! That proved it! Shehry had only known Najma for about 30mins and already he looked as if his life had been drained out of him!!! Asad actually understood the love at first sight concept first time in his life! Before Zoya he had always believed that, “Mohobaat sirf waqt zaiyar karne ka zaria hai.” He returned from his inner blabber when he heard Ammi say, “Arre! Ye kya baat hui Asad!? Tumhe Pehle dulhan milli isliye shaadi kar rahe ho na?”  “Nahi Ammi ese tohda na hota hai,” as he looked at his Ammi and told her with his eyes to look over, “Hanna Shehry?” Ammi had looked just in time to see that Shehry was staring at Najma and by the way Ammi was smiling, Asad knew that the seed had been planted in Ammi’s mind, as he said, “Shehry!?” While shaking him!

“Huh!?” Said an embarrassed Shehry as Zoya laughed and said, “Tu to Gaya Shehry!” And then turning around to face Najma and saying, “Arre wah Najma, itna jaldi jadoo chal Gaya Hamari BFF mauhtarma ka ki hamare BFF Janaab to hosh mein hi nahin hai!” And then she got up and ran to hug Shehry as she yelled, “Omg! Shehry you finally found your soulmate yaar!!”  Najma blushed and ran inside as Zoya said, “Arre! Kitna sharmati ha yeh! Wait let me go see!” Zoya left as Ammi began chatting away with Shehry.  Shehry was politely talking when his phone rang.

“Excuse me please.” As Shehry got up and left to answer his phone, Asad found it to be appropriate time to talk to Ammi.

“Ammi, do you think it was a right decision?”  “Yes beta! Tumne bilkool thik kiya! You know Asad, Kabhi Kabhi zindgiya bit Jatti hai Lakin hum insan ko nahi pehchan patte, Lakin Kabhi Kabhi Pehli nazar mein hi app ko paras jaisa insaan mil Jatta hai!”  “Aur vaise bhi Vo Zoya ka BFF Kum bhaijaan Zadda hai! To phir Tum jiju aur bhai honke ka farz adda nahi karoge!?”

“Ji Ammi,” said Asad as he got up to leave.  He had just took a step when Shehry came back in the kitchen with a very worried looking face!

That’s all folks!

Past, A window to the future~an AsYa SS Part 10

Part 10 

Zoya hugged Asad and buried her face in his neck as she whispered, “I love you, Asad! I love you so much!”
Surprised by his own actions, he stroked her hair again and pressed a kiss into her hair as he heard his own whisper say, “I love you too, Zoya, more than anything in this world.”
 
 
Shehry had done that on purpose! He knew that Asad needed that little push, and he gave him that little push.  Now all Asad had to had was up to him. Lost in his own thoughts, Shehry ran into someone and she dropped something that she was holding and then…..ahhhhhh!, he heard someone say, and then he found himself with her in his arms and him staring into her big pretty brown eyes! She had the most beautiful face he had ever seen! At that moment, he felt like all his existence had found a meaning! Yes! Shehry had found the love of his life! He had found his soulmate! And then all of sudden, he heard, “What do you think you are doing?” 
 
He turned around helping her to her feet his hand on the small of her back, to see Dilshad Phoophi standing there! “Oh I’m sorry Phoophi! I was walking and thinking and I ran into this mauhtarma over here! I’m very sorry Phoophi!” Then he turned around to face her and said, “I’m sorry! Aap ka Sarra khana meri vajja se gir Gaya!” 
 
“The question was asked by me, not Ammi!” He heard Asad behind him.  He was holding Zoya’s hand so Shehry said, “I already said what I was doing! First you tell me why you are holding my baby sis’s hand!?” Shehry smirked as all eyes turned on Asad.  Asad blushed crimson red n Zoya quickly took her hand out of his hand.  Shehry moved forward dragging Phoophi with him and smiled at Asad and Zoya! Then holding Zoya’s hand an placing it in Asad’s and then placing both hands in Phoophi’s he said, “Just promise you’ll take care of her better than I have done! Never let tears in her eyes, and always put a smile on her face!” 
“I promise!” Said Asad.  The girl ran and went and hugged Asad! I’m so happy bhaijaan! And then, “Zoya!!!! Allah miyan! We went from new walli BFFs to sister-in-laws!!!”
“Calm down tamatar!” Said Zoya.
“Calm down! My tamatar can’t stay calm for anything!” Said Asad. 
“Bhaijaan!” Said tamatar with a cute pout, making her look even more beautiful than she already was, and Shehry couldn’t stop staring at her.  Then Phoophi said, “Ok, Shehry, Asad,and  Zoya come eat dinner!” “And c’mon Najma! Stop making faces now!” “Oh wait I know that look! You want to try another diet?” 
“Ammi, look! I look like a baby elephant! I want to look best in bhaijaan’s wedding!”
“But how can you perfect perfection? You’re already beautiful beyond words!” Shehry heard himself before he could stop himself. 
“I mean you look fine! Najma. That’s a very pretty name!” He said awkwardly. While he saw Asad smiling.  
 
That’s all folks!

Past, A Window to the Future~AsYa Short Story Part 9

Part 9

Asad stood there quietly listening to all this! Betrayal! Her dad had also betrayed her mom! He was mad! He couldn’t believe that someone would leave such a cute daughter like Zoya behind! Did he just say cute? She isn’t cute! She’s beautiful!!! She’s an angel! An angel that came into his life and changed his life for ever! He realized that all this time, he wasn’t looking for an answer, he already had the answer, he was just in denial, because it seemed like the easiest thing to do! But no more! He is going to face the fact that he loves Zoya head on and take care Zoya when she really needs him.  As if he had heard Asad’s inner monologue, Shehry came up to him and said, it’s now or never mate! It’s time to prove yourself to the best friend how well you can take care my Zoya! Let’s see if your worthy of her! 
Asad opened his mouth to say something when Shehry said, “Uh-uh ! Zoya’s more than a best friend to me! She almost like my baby! N just remember if you ever hurt my baby even unintentionally, you will have to face a lot more than you can imagine! And if you want something as priceless as my baby, then you HAVE to prove yourself worth! If you can’t handle and comfort her in tears, then you don’t deserve her smile either!” 
Saying that Shehry walked off and Asad just stared at him in disbelief! Just as he was going to turn around and go give Shehry a piece of his mind, he say Zoya crying n about to fall! He forgot everything and ran! He got to her in time n caught her! “Zoya! Zoya! ” she had barely opened her eyes to see him when the tears and pain came back to her, and she stared yelling! 
“Mr. Khan! How could he do that to Ammi! That heartless bastard! How could he do this!? He burnt my Ammi alive!!! I’m gonna kill that bastard!! Mr. Khan! Mr. Khan…..” And she fainted in his arm! He kept her in his arms for a while until he calmed himself and stopped his own tears! This couldn’t be happening to his Zoya, but no matter how much he wanted it to be a dream, it was true! N at that moment he himself wanted to find the bastard and kill him with his bare hands!!!
Finally after composing himself a bit he picked her up in his arms and took her to her room.  He had just laid her on the bed when she stared coming around saying “Mr. khan” he looked at her and she looked completely devastated.  He quickly sat on the bed and took her in his arms, as If finding solace in his arms, Zoya led out all the tears as Asad stroked her hair and placed a few kisses on her head. After all the crying, Zoya had seemed to calmed down so Asad asked her, “Zoya, app thik to hai?” “Patta nahi Asad, ki kya  humme Ammi aur apne liye dukhi hona chahiye ya phir uss insaan pe gussa hona chahiye Jisse ne Hamara sab kuch chin liya!” 
“Aap ko patta hai Zoya jab Janaab Rashid Ahmed Khan Ammi ko chod kar chale Gaye the to mujhe Ammi bohot mushkil se bapis Le kar ayyi thi aur tub se Lakar app ke samjhane tak Maine sirf unse nafrat ki hai! Lakin app ne mujhe realize karvaya ki past ko to hum badal nahi sakte Lakin future to hamare bas me Hain! Aur gussa sirf uss future ko kharab kardeta hai aur aap ka gussa bhi us insaan ke kabil nahi hai! You don’t worry! Shehry ko zaroor kuch clue to hoga ki Vo kaun hai, aur hum plan bana kar use usike jaal me phanse ge! I’ll hve him hanged for this!” Zoya hugged Asad and whispered while crying, and if she hadn’t been so close to his ear, he would have missed what that whisper carried!
 
That’s all folks!

Past, A Window to the Future~an AsYa SS Part 8

Part 8

 
Zoya knew it wasn’t safe to be firing up Shehry like this, he could be as dangerous as Mr. Khan when angry, but she had to do it to find out the truth, so when she heard Shehry say, “Zoya please don’t make this hard for me.”
 
She broke into another rant, saying, “No Shehry! We are done here! That’s it! I don’t want to talk! I can do my things myself! I don’t anyone! Not you and not Mr. Khan! You here me! No one!” 
Saying that Zoya turned around, but a furious Shehry grabbed her to face him and said, “You want to know? Then fine, listen…….”
 
“Your Abbu was a greedy man who married your Ammi for money! Your Abbu was in his thirties when he met your Ammi! Your Ammi was just out of college, about 24 years old beautiful and carefree as you! From what I’ve heard, you’re an exact spitting image of your Ammi! Which was another reason why Appi never pushed it  when it came to wearing salvar suits that and also because she knew most traditional clothing doesnt have full sleves and how important it is for you to hide your arms, anyways she fell in love with your abbu and she told your Nanajaan that she wanted to get married now and your Nanajaan agreed and got them married and after a year you were born.  By the time you were about three, your Ammi found out that he was married to another woman your Ammi was devastated but your Abbu told her that he was forced into marrying the other woman and that he loved your Ammi only.  Your Ammi believed him but Nanajaan didn’t, so in his Will he gave everyone to your Ammi and if anything happened to your Ammi, then all the property will go to you.  Your Abbu was furious when he learned that and you were about 5 when your Nanajaan passed away and a few days later, your Appi, my Ammi, and I were going to visit your place when we say smoking coming from your house! Your Abbu was running away from the house and he smelled like kerosene while your Ammi and you were screaming and burning ALIVE inside the house! He set your house on fire! He killed your Ammi! He tried to kill you but if it hadn’t been for your Ammi’s courage, you would probably be dead.  I still remember, I was only 7 years old but I put water on the building as fast as I could, when I say you crying for your Ammi, she was burning right next to you! I ran up to you, and your Ammi told me, “Shehry always take care of my Zoya! Take her and tell Zeenant to raise her please don’t ever let my daughter into the hands of that monster!” I ran with you as fast as I could out of the house to bring Ammi, and your Appi but by the time we got there, your mother was screaming and burnt all over!! It was horrifying! I screamed and I don’t remember anything after that! 
Ammi and your Appi decided to keep you with them and their was a rishta from New York of Anwar jiju and your Appi got married and they both adopted you as their daughter and took you to New York with them! Soon after that my Abbu had also called Ammi and me to New York and we made our little world in that city and decided to never take you to India ever! But two years ago you found out about your Abbu and were determined to come to Bhopal to find your Abbu and then Appi made a scheme that she should get you married.  She knew marriage means everything to you and once in a relationship, you will never back out no matter what.  She thought of getting you married to Akram because he will be able to protect you until you were in Bhopal and then he will move back with you to New York! It would’ve worked but you being you ran away from the marriage but now I’m glad you did! But still Zoya, think about it with a brain and not with a heart, give it up and move on! He’s nothing but a murderer! Let it go! I’ll leave you alone now, just think about it! 
Saying that Shehry walked out of there and Zoya just stood there, trying to collect her heart together which had shattered with the truth! How could Shehry do this to her! He knew her better than herself, then how could he not know how much she needed him right now and he just said that he’s going to leave me alone to think! Her inner turmoil was growing when she saw him standing there and she ran!
 
That’s all folks!

Past, A Window to the future~an AsYa SS part 7

Part 7

Zoya just fainted in his arms! He couldn’t figure out what to do! “Zoya! Zoya!” He found himself yelling and pretty soon he realized that tears were running down his face like the day he had almost lost her in Mangalpur to that grave the panchayat had made for her! No! He would never let anything ever happen to her again! Ever! He scooped her in his arms and carried her to his car.  He was looking for something when the guy showed up with a water bottle in his hand and offered it to Asad.  Asad hesitated for a bit but then took it gently from his hands and sprayed a bit on Zoya’s face and she came around.  Asad felt a it better and asked if she was okay and she just said, “Yes Mr. Khan! I just forgot to eat lunch, so I just fainted.  Can we go home please?” It seemed to Asad like Zoya had forgotten all about their fight! He closed the passenger door, and turned around to find the guy standing there smiling.
‘”Typical Zoya!’ He said.  ‘She always does this! Forgets to eat, gets cranky, yells at people, faints, and then wakes up forgetting everything! So I’m guessing you are Asad!'” He said looking at Asad.
“Yes,” he replied a bit Confused.  Everyone knew him in Bhopal but this guy didn’t look like he was from Bhopal at all.  “‘I’m Shehry,’ the guy said. ‘Perhaps we started on the wrong foot.  I’m Zoya’s best friend from New York.  We grew up together and we have always been together even when we went to different colleges, so I guess I just get a bit too overprotective of her.  I didn’t mean to insult you, in Zoya’s case I always act like this because she’s always been my responsibility.  Sorry!”
“It’s okay, I shouldn’t have reacted like that too, it’s just some guys here are too shameless! So you staying here for some time?”  He had just asked that hoping that his answer wouldn’t be that he’s come here to get Zoya, but as usual Zoya had to come in there! She had just seen Shehry, and had literally ran his way and hugged him like a little kid, while he spinned her around! “Oh Zee Bell! I haven’t seen you in so long! Lazy day today!?”
“Yeah, didn’t want to do anything!” She said smiling.
“I can see that! Your messy bun and “juicy couture” collection only comes out if your feeling lazy or something really bad is disturbing you……oh no Zoya, not again! How many times I’ve told you no you can’t keep on doing that to yourself!” Shehry said, now  mad.  “You need to get home! Asad, I’m sorry but can I ask you for a favor?”
Confused Asad said, “Yeah sure!”
“Since Zoya is at your house, can I follow you guys to your house, I have to talk to her, if you don’t mind that is?”
“Sure!”
Asad and Zoya left in Asad’s SUV with Shehry closely behind them.  Once they got home, he went and told his Ammi that one of Zoya’s friends had come to meet Zoya and He’s asked him to stay for dinner.  His Ammi seemed very happy after a long time! He smiled and was walking to his room when he saw shadows! Asad walked over and saw the shadows belonged to Zoya and Shehry and Zoya was crying while Shehry was yelling at her! He clenched his fists best friend or not, nobody made his Zoya cry! He was about to walk when he heard Shehry say, “Zoya, you can’t keep on doing this to yourself! He isn’t worth it! Everyone but you knows who he is and what his scumb bag ass did!” Hearing this Zoya’s head shot up! “You knew, I mean you know! Tell me! You have to tell me! I deserve to know!”
Asad was getting very angry at the way Shehry was talking to Zoya, but also very confused as to whom were they talking about when he heard Zoya say, “please Shehry, I need to know! He’s my Abbu! I need to now! Please!!!”
“It’s not that easy Zoya! Sorry I can’t tell you! You won’t be able to take it, and I can’t see you break apart anymore!” Shehry said putting a hand softly on her cheek but Zoya flicked it away.
“No, don’t touch me! You know all my life I’ve only had you! You understood me! You always had the solution! You always felt the same about me as I felt about you! We always had a love that no one could understand!”
Asad stomach sank when she mentioned “Love” but he kept listening because he just couldn’t bring himself to walk away.
“When Appi talked to you about mine and your nigah, you knew exactly what I would say, you knew that I would tell Appi that I loved you as my best friend and not even a future husband to take your spot in my heart but I am waiting for my soulmate and before he walks into my heart, I need to resolve my parental issue! You knew because you were waiting for the same things perhaps, your soulmate! We have always been each others mirror, but today! Today you are leaving me! You are leaving your best friend in a dilemma even after you know that I would rather know the truth and live that than die with a regret that I didn’t even try to look for my Abbu!”
“Zoya please don’t make this hard for me.”
“No Shehry! We are done here! That’s it! I don’t want to talk! I can do my things myself! I don’t anyone! Not you and not Mr. Khan! You here me! No one!” Saying that Zoya turned around, but a furious Shehry grabbed her to face him and said, “You want to know? Then fine, listen…….”
That’s all Folks!
