Hey Anonymous Virgo born September 12th
This ones for you!
I know it’s not before your Birthday but,
 I thought Birthday gifts are on BIRTHDAYS :p

-Madliar
Hessa… his older sister is younger than him but she’s a married  27 year old and let’s say she thinks she’s stuck at 21 her hubby is in a way different world. I don’t quite understand her stares she hates me (PERIOD).
Shayoukha: sharaytay furniture for il room? 
Me: eee 6alabt mn Pottery Barn Kids shay white you9al hal sbou3 
Aunty Hana: eee yuma zain tsawon tara laih 9arat el9jiya malich khlg 7ata etesab7ain
Me: waay la khalty latgoolin 3ad ana khayfa 7adi
Aunty Hana: g3day nfaasich 3ndy shrayech?? 
That was soo cute of her! But Hessa would kill me and my baby so here goes another white lie!!! 
Me: way khalty yarayt bs 3amty gayla btyeena ilbayt o Noufa wed’ha tjareb feeni…elyayaat enshallah 3ndch wa3ad! Bas 7ayach klyoum zouureeni shayoukha tyebich 
Aunty Hana: 7asafaaaa enshallah ilyaay 3ndy 3yl eee akeed o in walaht bayee brou7y man6erha!
I got up and hugged her slowly “يا حلوِج خالتي الله لا يحرمنا منج”
I caught Abdulrahman starring and smiling as soon as he saw me watching his facial expressions changed and mine well I smiled with teeth!
I was too excited for tomorrow’s baby reveal with the girls and Noufa I think they invited Shayoukha too because she slipped out a couple of times! Haha 
Me: Yala khalty ana asta2thin maw3di garab m3a ma7al il kakaw 7ag el esteqbal enshallah
I got up to kiss her as Shayoukha said
Shayoukha: Abdulrahman btrou7??
And just before he could furiously reply since he had NO IDEA I had tasting appointments…
Me: laaa bas ana shrayech tyeen?? Abdulrahman mayy7b kakaw shfeech gomay badlay 3ala ma ayeeb mfta7y nsayta foug 
Abdulrahman smiled shakla yazatla il targee3a
Shayoukha: eeee 9a7 yallah 5 mins o algach bara
I power walked up stairs hoping he doesn’t follow me because he’d kill me.
I was safe up the stairs and into our apartment just as I was locking my master-bedroom and turned to walk out he was standing by the door. He FREAKED ME OUT! Again!
Me: Bsmellaaaah
Abdulrahman: allah y7afthich hadayy…bs yeet a36eech carty la2ana m9a5teha bl cart malich
Did I mention I didn’t use the card he gave me for shopping well for everything I just used my own 
Me: ma7taja 
I blurted as I looked down aiming for the door.
He quickly fiddled with his pockets and pulled the card out stretching his arm for me to take it
Abdulrahman: ana masta2thantich ta5thina ana ga3d a2merich
I didn’t want to make a huge fuss so I just took it, it was a tasting anyways and I might not pay and make the order today! 
I gently held the card from the other side as he let go and thanked him as I walked out and slowly down the stairs.
Minutes later Shayoukha was in my Range Rover and off we went for our tasting. We came back 2 hours later and Abdulrahman wasn’t home. 
However, I found the cake in the fridge! And started brainstorming ideas in my head for how I was going to wake him for it or whether I should stay up to do that… Mmmmm
I got my silver cake knife and added a white bow to it and placed it on our tea table with 2 plates and the cake waiting patiently for prince charming to make his appearance
I wore my boyfriend jeans because they were the only non-maternity jeans that can go through with a plain black cropped shirt.
I crossed my legs and started watching Fuller House on Netflix!
Two hours later, he came in wearing jeans! And a plain space grey shirt!
Abdulrahman: alsalaam
Me: w3alaikom esallam!
He walked straight to his room and just as he was going to enter
Me: Abdulrahmaan
He stopped and didn’t look back 
Abdulrahman: na3am 
Me: t3al shway
He came over and joined me on the couch not too close but close enough he had his hands between his knees and head tilted down.
I was holding my silver knife with its cute bow 
Me: ge9 ma3ay elcake khan3arf shno elbaby 
7ady chathaba I already know, but I wanted to be cute!
Abdulrahman: klshay mn Allah 7yah Allah
And just as he got up to walk away I stretched my arm and held his hand! 
Me: Abdulrahmaaan! 
He gave up and sat back down with my hand still holding on to his I pointed the cake knife at him and started with my drama! 
Me: shouuuf 3ad *points cake knife to his face* anaaa ma t3abt o sawayt kel hatha 3ashan tadgerni faaahem? Yaalaa ashof emsik! *puts his right hand over my right hand* yalaa gi9 weyaaay!! *as we were cutting the cake I started whining* wallaaah hathaa eli naagi9
Abdulrahman’s point of view 
Wallah shakelha wehya tzf kan wayed etha7ik bas kether ma agdar masek tha7kety 3ashan ma tatfel eb wayhy mn elsha6a ksarat 5a6ry shlon nfajrat 3ala cake bas e9ara7aaa knt mayet abe a3arf la2ana elkalba m3amlatni mo3amalat sayeq macheni obo ely eba6nhaa….
Dani: yeeb el9a7an 
Madayt laha el 9a7an o 76at el g63a ely ga9ainaha chan namsk el 9a7an athnaina o nlefa 3ashan enshof elouun ely dakhl… o la eradeyan lafaina shfna ba3ath o ebtesamna 
Me: enshallah yshbahni 
Ya kelma rday mokanich, 79altly aqwa buks o 6anager mn yed o ydeeed.
Dani: hathaa eli nag9 ana asheela 9 months o yshbehek yawaaila 
Me: sh7alaty laish ma yshbahni
Dani: o ana shfeeeeni 
Me: قمر و ربي
Ma we3ayt ela ras’ha zain ma ybous el arth.
Dani’s point of view
OMG What the heck I started blushing like crazy 
Abdulrahman: hatha e9ij wain el قمر wareeni eyah
I couldn’t lift up my head it was too HEAVY! He held my chin and turned my head to face him and lifted up my chin lightly I didn’t know he could be this gentle if he wanted to!
He kissed my forehead and buried my head so close to his heart and I couldn’t not hug his torso, I held it tightly.
And heard him whisper 
Abdulrahman: walaht o raby…

p.s. I wrote this in less than 30 mins
and I know it’s short!

-Madliar

The second night, I was finally discharged Khalty Hana was there with Shayoukha and 3amy Ahmad before Abdulrahman signed the papers and we all left together I had my medicine bag and the rest of my stuff were either with Abdulrahman or Shaikha!
Aunty Hana: yallah yuma shway shway 3al 6reej nshofkom bl bayt
I went over and kissed her forehead and I couldn’t reach his dad’s so I just pecked his cheek and Shayoukha hugged me and waved goodbye to join her parents!
Abdulrahman’s Point of View 
Rkabna esayara o ehya sakta maska chees el adweya chenha maska jan6at 6al3a…tha7katni.
Tawny yay bshaghl ay shay wela asma3ha tgol du3a2 el rkob fa ga9art o n6art tkhalis o glta ma3aha bgalby!

Dania: Abdulrahmaan

Me: m3aay Shaikha 36atni eyah tabena?
Dania: way 7abeebty la khala lain nou9al mo muhem
Me: mmmmm
Dania: bs knt bshof ena ybnah mn el mostashfa 
Me: mmmm
Dania’s Point of View
Why Mmm I hate people that “Mmm” back like I made an effort and I used more than one letter why can’t you?? Huh!
As soon as we parked in the driveway his parents and Shaikha were literally behind us so I asked Shaikha to come in as well and well her mom insisted we should rest but I made Shaikha come anyways because her awkward brother wasn’t planning on keeping me company :) 
We settled and I put some of the clothes in the washer while Shayoukha made some popcorn nothing microwaved because Abdulrahman “said so” 
Shaikha: ba76 Jane the Virgin ok?
Me: eeee a7ba *shouting back from the laundry area*
We started watching and Abdulrahman was on his laptop doing good knows what in MY room so Shayoukha doesn’t notice the separation thing. Halfway through the first episode …
Abdulrahman: Danii
I got up shocked at the “Dani” and scarred as well not knowing what’s coming after it.
I walked over to MY side of the bed and stood there waiting…
Me: n3amm
Abdulrahman: mobilich kan ehez *he handed it over* 
Seriously was that it, 3abaly 3nda salfa
I immediately read the first messages that showed on the screen, 
Dalouya: 
Danii gender reveal cakes are ordered delivery in two days okay be ready😌
I smiled, replied, and sat back with Shaikha and closed the master bedrooms door, Me and Shaikha ended up watching 3 episodes and as she left I turned off the lights and walked into the bedroom totally forgetting about the husband.
As soon as I walked in I saw him sleeping and he looked so comfortable I didn’t want to wake him so I went to sleep in his room, I fixed it too since I wasn’t there for two days to do that…
Abdulrahman’s Point of View
Shaikha 6awelat’ha allah yahdeeha o ana naw3an ma abeha mn allah bashof Dania shbetsawy etha shafatni nayem o t3amadt anam eb mokanha o awal ma 9kat elbab ana 6fayt elait o nmt!

Ma3qola ra7at tnam 3nd Shayoukh o ma galatly!!! tnarfaazt la2ana ely kan ebali ma9ar 
Ba6alt bab daary eb dfasha mn kether ma mitnarfzzz o mnqaath 
Laih darajat ena elmaskena ngezat mn noumhaa mn el 5ar3a o wayeha shway o yabchy
Dania’s Point Of View 
My heart literally jumped, I WAS FREAKED and my baby was too I didn’t know what to hold my own heart or that baby in my belly! 
I literally had tears in my eyes because this entrance was one I’d see in Action&Crime movies not in a couples apartment!
I was breathing heavily wearing Abdulrahman’s Calvin Klein Pj shirt that I’ve found hung on the hooks and it had his smell all over it and I’ve missed him so much.
I quickly  got up flicked the covers back like no one ever slept on them in 10 seconds, and he stood there by the door still starring and shocked at what he has done. I picked up my clothes from the hook by the door with my hair naturally down and ONLY Abdulrahman’s shirt on trying to leave his room.
I stood in front of him trying to pass-by as he stood there just tracking my existence he didn’t move one bit even when I got really close.
I looked up to see him starring into my watery eyes  
Me: pleaase 
He knew what I wanted so I skipped explaining and just asked politely 
He moved one step back it was so tight one inch away of bumping into him, he made a bridge over my head with his long arms as he took that step back.
As I was walking out he slid his bridge arm back down blocking me and gently holding me by the belly. 
I was about to die I’ve forgotten how to be normal with romance and my cheeks started burning.
I looked up into his eyes with my questioning eyes, as he finally let out
Abdulrahman: aseff
I looked away and gently held his hand to put it back to his side and walked out
Abdulrahman’s Point of View 
Karaht 3omry malyon ena fazazt’ha mn noumha chethy o wath7 ena fashalt’ha 
Gtlaha asef o maradat o thayegat khlgy zyada
Glt abadl wanzl 3nd ahaly 
I showered and wore training pants with a Nike shirt as soon as I left my room I caught a glimpse of Dani on the couch covered in a throw…
I walked closer to her and held her shoulder lucky as hell she’s so thin I can guess where it was even from under a throw! 
She immediately turned to face me
As soon as I saw her face filled with tears I sat on the floor so I could be in the same eye level as her and slowly wiped her tears with my thumbs as her lashes brushed my hands.
N6art’ha tahdi chan abdy aklmha
Abdulrahman: golily shtabeni asawy Dania latga63en galby
I waited for something to escape those seducing lips of hers but she was starring at me as if I made no sense whatsoever!
I kept starring at her eyes as she suddenly dozed off to sleep I ran my hands slowly over her head and stood up to see what was for breakfast.
Abdulrahman: 9baa7 elkhair 
Parents: 9baa7 elnourr
I kissed their foreheads and sat at the table, little bit of politics with a side note of baby tips and another of taking care of the wifey.
Hana (Mother) : yuma wainhee Dania chna 6awlat akhaf feha shay
Abdulrahman: khaleeha tnam mo nayma cham youm maskena etha gamat akeed tdg
El3moom g3ad o nzal o 9ar elwath3 zwara fa glt ashof wainhe
Dania’s Point of View
I woke up and sat up straight checking my phone with the throw covering my thighs and legs.
The apartment door opened gently I turned my head back to see who it was then looked back to flip through some instagram baby stuff
Abdulrahman: 9ba7 elkhair
Me: 9ba7 elnour
He shut the door and came and sat by me so I locked my phone just to show that i’m brought up to being a respectful woman, nothing more nothing less.
Abdulrahman: klhom ta7at ys2lon 3nch btaklen weyahom wela la2
Me: madry
Abdulrahman: laish 7garteni elyoum 
Me: meta
Abdulrahman: laman t2asaft
Me: la2ana fe wayed ashya2 lazm tet2asafly mnha o enta ma 7adadt hathy 7ag ay mawqef fehom
Abdulrahman was shocked and I honestly felt like laughing but I held it and he did too I was too baby dramatic blaming it on those hormones…
Abdulrahman: golily khal a3arf
I sat up crossed my legs, and as I did my underwear showed and he looked straight down at my legs as I didn’t notice I still only had his Shirt on! And I turned my body to face him.
He threw the blanket on my lap then shot me with that expression like now “Go Ahead!”
Me: Ne6artik ayaam 3ashan tye tgoly shno mushkeltik m3ay, aw bl a7ra ma khalaytni atkalam wala 36aytni fur9a at7acha… may9eer tiyeely el7in la2ana kesart 5a6rik eny nmt bl mustashfa o enta mo mawjod 7ata twadeni el6abeeb wala yeet ela laman derayt ena khalty o 3amy o shayoukha yayeen last day hnee entaa yeet? Abdulrahman arid a3eed ma7b a7ad yenjeber feni tara ana t3abt knt ebayt bain nas t7bny o t3zny o ma nazeloly dmou3 ela 7ag ma9la7ty 
When I remembered my parents my warm tears were already streaming down my face
Me: may9eer chethy Abdulrahman ana ma terabayyt hal tarbeya ely maten3af 3ashan tye tshek feni o t7asisny eni baiza ma aswa mn el9adma ana lsani nreba6, bas yallah etha hathy el7ayat ely tetmanaha ana ba3teberha dars ley wel tamtheel kela 3ashan ely eba6ny o 3ashan ahalik ely 7a6oni foug ras’hom 
Abdulrahman was listening quietly word by word but I quickly stood up and stormed into my room leaving him there, I showered got dressed did my hair and walked out as if I were a totally different person.
I wore a long shirt dress in white with my Gucci Princeton’s in the bird print and Simon Miller Bonsai in Green, very natural makeup and styled my hair down with a clip holding the ends of my twisted strands! 
When I walked out Abdulrahman’s eyes were all over me I felt his stares I grabbed our door knob twisted it and walked out as he quickly walked behind me, did I mention the extra dose of perfume I used on me?
As I walked in they all got up for hugs and kisses!
Aunty Hana: yazeenich allah ya7fethkom
Me: ya7lwich khalty allah ekhaleech lina 
We sat and I literally sat side by side near Abdulrahman and I would keep asking him if he wanted to eat or drink anything and he shrugged his shoulders every time. 
Oh man If I were you I’d use all the chances I’m getting from this cause It won’t last long…
Shayoukha: Daniii shno shraytay 7ag el baby?? Etha bga shay bayee weyach please!
Me: bacher ra7 a3arf etha boy or girl! * White lies dont hurt right?* 
Shayoukha: mn next week ra7 nrou7 jad meshta6a!
Me: Hehehe eee akeed enshallah!
Abdulrahman was waiting for an invite but he didn’t get one and he was so stiff literally dying I can feel the tense.

And well Abdulrahman’s older sister let’s say “”ما يعجبها العجب
