Dedicated to kn, asm, dee, z, shahad, Jawaher, Shahal, Amna, and the anons that brighten my day with their comments on the story!Happy reading, Cashmere***I took a deep breath. I wasn't sure if I would get back into this car with a friendship rekindled or if I would come back and have lost a friend.I got out of the car and went down the stairs that once made me so excited to be with whom I'd thought were my best friends, but now these stairs reminded me of betrayal by people I had once trusted the most.I saw Danah on her ...

Happy National Day Kuwait and happy reading!Cashmere***"delete تكفييين"I told Jana at the coffee place we usually hung out at, it used to be Danah and her friends’ but since they sort of fell apart, we claimed it as ours."والله حلوة"She said as she showed me the picture. I looked so pale compared to her fresh tan and professional makeup but she liked it.She looked so pretty in an oversized white sweater with black tights and thigh-high boots. A bit too mature for my taste but it worked on her.I, on the other hand, wore a pair of black ripped jeans, ...

I told my dog as I walked her back to the room we kept her in next to the garage.I took off the leash and went through the door to get inside the house where I had to wash my hands after the sweat from holding the leash for so long.I went on my Snapchat story to see who had viewed my story, which I hadn't posted on for a ...

I was still confused, very confused. And worried.It was 6:50 and I was starting to feel impatient yet I didn't want to text him. I would see him in school but here was perfect as there was no one other than us. I rubbed my hands against my ...

Hey guys,I'm so sorry but I'm going to start deleting comments requesting double posts, I'm trying my best to make every chapter long and perfect, it's really time consuming. If you'd like to drop a comment please make it about that chapter. I won't be doing double posts at all anymore because of how many requests I've been getting even after I politely asked my followers to stop.I don't mean to be rude, I appreciate your enthusiasm but more importantly I appreciate feedback and comments that make me want to keep on writing rather than pressure me to just post, which I've been getting ...

Happy reading, Cashmere***"امبيه حدي يوعانة"Jana said as we sat at a table in the middle of The Breakfast Club. She took off her leather jacket to reveal her wool off-shoulder shirt that really flattered her curves."شنو بتطلبين؟"She asked me as she flipped through the menu the waiter placed on our table."جني مو يوعانة"I said.I still couldn't believe Danah exposed me like that and more importantly, what had happened with Fahad? How did he know about the pictures?I talked to him like I didn't know Rawan knew. I wanted to talk to him on Thursday, the day after the Gathering, but he ...

Sorry for the late update, my days have recently been so busy! Happy reading, Cashmere***Wednesday, December 14th, 2016...Lulu and I sat at our usual coffee place, waiting for the rest to come for our usual Wednesday meetups. She stirred her iced coffee with her straw before her phone buzzed."دانة تقول ما راح تقدر تيي"Lulu said looking at her phone. She ran a hand through her thick curly hair that I just adored. I begged her not to get a treatment since she was thinking of relaxing it."اعتقد وايد يوها عقب دزاين عرس منيرة"I said."ايي لايق صح؟"Lulu said, taking a sip of her ...

Happy reading, Cashmere***Friday, December 9th, 2016...I hoped I wouldn't run into Danah or her friends at the bathroom again, it was awkward the first time. I walked back to the bathroom, with three women fixing there makeup but none of them were Danah's friends.It was really sweet of Fajer to say hi even if it made things more awkward for the rest of the girls, but it was still nice. She looked a bit distracted...not sad but it was like her mind was somewhere else.Did Danah agree to tell her? No, Danah didn't care enough.Did someone else tell her?Should I tell ...

If there was news about you, people would stare you head to toe and comment on everything they think about you to whoever it was they were gossiping about you to.That was why I had to look my best tonight. I wore a jumpsuit that Danah specifically overlooked the design of for ...

This might be my favorite chapter of the story. I really really enjoyed writing it!Happy reading, Cashmere***Monday, December 5th, 2016..."Hi Mr. Michael," I said through the phone as I walked into the crowded hotel lobby. I had to cover my left ear to hear him well."Hi Fajer, how is everything? Has the conference started?" my boss asked me.The conference, in Dubai, was packed with people from all over the world. I had a hard time maneuvering through the crowd at the entrance, especially when security needed to see my badge to let me in."Not yet, no," I said. "It's really crowded.""Yeah, it always ...

It was 8:30 and the dinner party for my cousin's engagement at my grandma's house started two hours ago and was ending in an hour because my grandmother slept early."No, still," my nanny said."اففف"I replied.Danah told my mother she wasn't going to pick me up and my driver was out to the chalet to help my father.I looked at my outfit for the 100th time.

Dead nervous.Even with my best friends around me I couldn't be calm.He was on his way to me now with his family and I was fidgeting in my long sleeved white and black dress that I'd gotten custom made from one of Danah's close friends. My short hair was curled to my shoulders and my makeup brought out just the features I wanted.The official engagement party was today and I couldn't believe it.My phone had been freezing since the announcement last week and we had ...

Sunday, November 6th, 2016...I took a deep breath. This was finally happening.I adjusted my dress which was a black and white ensemble that wrapped my body perfectly. My hair was down to my shoulders in voluminous waves while fine jewelry hung on my ears and neck.I'd told my parents about Khalid last week and because we'd already gotten to know each other, and because Khalid was in a rush, our khe6ba was so soon."ما اصدق خشيتيه عني انا بعد"Fouz said as she helped me zip up the top part of my dress that I couldn't reach."شسوي خفت"I said."يالغبية احنا نعرف ...

I loved it when he called me by my nickname. I was still not over him and the fact that almost everyone saw us together at the carnival really meant something. He wasn't ashamed to be seen with me. I truly felt worthy when I was with him, and Rawan was so jealous she called her mother to tell her about us.It was so worth it, even if I almost got my phone confiscated. ...

Happy reading, Cashmere***Monday, October 31st, 2016...I looked at my reflection in the office bathroom mirror as I freshened up for the meeting. The tan I'd gotten from self-tanning was contrasted against my hot pink blazer.I wore a white sleeveless blouse underneath it with a pair of black leggings and platform black and silver shoes. My makeup was heavier than my usual office makeup but I guess I needed to represent the office well. Silver hoop earrings dangled from my ears and silver and gold necklaces were stacked on my neck under my blouse. My short ombre hair was perfectly curled at the ...

"Fajer, ready for the meeting?" my boss, Mr. Michael  asked me. During my second week here I came to realize that he was a sweetheart, very friendly and down to earth. He treated me like a colleague and not as my superior. Plus he apparently found me very skilled and asked me to join him on his meeting today. "Yes, Mr. Michael," I said as I got up to join him and my two other colleagues, who were two Indians named Roger and Surish, at the elevator. I made sure my notebook and pen were with me while my phone ...
