Part 71- Freefall

“My second wish would be to dance on the ocean with you…with a crowd of stars under a spectacular moon”

Tears fell spontaneously from my eyes as I held him tightly against me. No amount of thanks to my Creator would ever be enough for blessing me with Riza Ahmed, the love of my life. He remembered…he remembered…the things that even I had forgotten…

Riza didn’t let go,held me close and swayed slowly from side to side with me…

Riza: second wish fulfilled Madame ( and he kissed my forehead)

I wished that this moment would never end…it was a moonlit night…the sky was full of stars…and here we were on a little boat on the Nahoon River….the boat was decked with pink and red roses…rose petals were strewn all across the floor of the boat and we danced bare feet to the sound of the gentle ripples of this magnificent river.

Me: I love you….

Riza: and I love you…..and I know it was supposed to be an ocean…but the river was my best bet right now

Me: its perfect:)

Riza: really?

Me: really, truly, madly…I have got to be the luckiest girl alive…

Riza: and I am the luckiest guy alive…seriously Laeeka I don’t know what I’d do without you…you’re the reason for my everything (and he held me closer)

Me: may Allah always keep us together…I want to grow old and grey with you

Riza: ameen my love ameen ْ

As narrated by Aara:

Bloukrans Bridge finally!! It was a boiling hot day and we were dressed very casually for our jump! I had to admit, I was really very nervous but I pretended not to be…

Zoheb: you up for this?

Me: honestly…not really (and I looked down….216metres doesn’t sound that high but it was!) Have you ever bungee jumped before?

Zoheb: nope..but I’m dying to try!

Me: we just signed a disclaimer…that means there are risks involved

Zoheb: shhhh…remember what Riza said….just let it go…make dua nothing goes wrong…things like this come along once in a lifetime if we’re lucky…so this is it

Me: how do always manage to make me feel better? You have…if I may call it have a certain magic with your words

Zoheb: it’s called the Aara effect *wink*

Me: stop iiiiit ( and I nudged him to shhh because the group was rejoining us)

Riza: guys we have to jump in two’s or three’s so let’s decide now who’s going with who

Nemo: Aara and I will jump’s one of our unfulfilled dreams ever since we were teenagers

I smiled. He was right..

Maariah: I’m going with Zainab…we need to do this it’s a girl thing

Arshad: well Zoheb you and I are jumping together bro

Laeeka: and naturally Riza and meeee:))))

Arshad: Maa we’re good to go ( he shouted to his parents)

Aunty Sawleha walked over to us..

Aunty Sawleha: I will read two rakaats nafl salaah if all of you come back alright…why do you all have to do this I don’t know (and she shook her head) I can’t even give sadaqah here these goras will get so offended they might just push me off this bridge!

Everyone was bust!

Arshad: Maa we aren’t going to war! Relax! (And he side hugged her)

Zoheb and Arshad decided to jump first! All we could hear was them screaming…it sounded terrifying!

Riza: I hope Arshoo didn’t wet himself! ℓ☺ℓ!

Zai: reeeeez…

Riza: sorry sorry Zai

Then Riza and Laeeka jumped! Screaming again!!!

Me: Nemo I don’t think I can do this!

Nemo: you can…I’m with you…(And he held my hand)

Riza and Laeeka dangled in mid air while Zoheb and Arshad cheered them on…

Zainab and Maariah jumped…ℓ☺ℓ…Mari without hesitation and Zai well it was so good to see her being so free for a change…

And finally it was our turn! *cant watch*

As Narrated by Nemo:

Aara held my hand so hard that both our hands had turned pink! My heart was pounding…. the impending plunge 216m below…I was probably as scared as Aara!

Nemo: don’t let go…let’s do this…1,2,3!

And we jumped!!! WHAT an amazing feeling! It was such a major adrenalin rush and I had never ever felt this way before! We screamed our lungs out and within seconds we swayed vigourously back and forth! I never let her go even though it was extremely difficult to hold on under these circumstances…and I reached out to hold her other hand…

Me: so, how do you feel?

Aara: amazing!!! Wow I didn’t know this could be so much fun! Thanks Nemo (and she smiled)

Me: we jumped off a frikking bridge!!!

Aara: we did!!!

And we screamed again! Amidst this pure untouched natural beauty…it seemed as though we were finding our friendship all over again…reminiscing about our old memories…

Aara: gosh Nemo your nose looks even bigger from underneath! (And she burst out laughing)

Me: haha very funny!

Aara: imagine if someone phones right now..what do we say??

Both of us together: we’re just hanging!!! (And we burst out laughing)

Me: this feels so good…I’m glad we did this together…

Aara: yep…it just feels sooo awesome

Me: Aara..

Aara: hmmm

Me: I could jump with you for the rest of my life….

And Aara turned completely pink…and was at a total loss for words…

  9. Ahhhhh man Aara blushing, she knows exactly how nemo feels but I think that she’s scared that she mite be mistaken and then she will feel rejected just how she felt when she was sixteen!
