You sit right here, I’ll bring you your medicine mother is calling you, come with me what happened Aimen? you go, I’ll come after I give mom her medicine first you stole and now you’re arguing with me what are you saying Aimen? Are you in your senses? I did not steal any money what are you doing? Why did you slap her? she stole my mother’s money and on top of it she’s arguing with me what is happening here? ask her she…

She slapped Ayesha control her I am still alive what is this rude behavior Aimen? does one hit their sister like that? come on let go of me and grab the one who stole your money this matter is to be solved by the elders… not yours go to your room this girl will never let me have peace forgive me sister-in-law Aimen! Aimen! mother, mother I didn’t do anything I know my dear, please stop crying she accused me, mom, I did not steal any money yes.

I know my dear, and also I know all about Aimen as well I’ve got to hand it to you Shaheena Although you have very good luck you refused the offer earlier today because the salary was not good enough and now see… they have accepted the offer to give your sister-in-law ten thousand rupees really! Are you sure? yes, they called me just now they want a maid as soon as possible and I talked up your sister-in-law you did a great job by doing this tell me when can she start? take your sister-in-law in the morning that way you can be satisfied by them.

The only satisfaction I need is that they pay the entire salary on time I will be involved in each and everything… so that Mahira doesn’t get any second thoughts about double-crossing me otherwise she can go to hell for all I care okay, do as you please I could give my daughter two lac and forget it in an instance how could all of you dare put such an accusation on her? it’s not like that Zafar Ayesha could not do something like this, there must be some misunderstanding that Aimen had a misunderstanding?

Does someone slap someone just over a misunderstanding? even I’ve never talked to her with a raised voice and she slapped her is she a thief? she is the inheritor of this entire property brother you can take the stolen money out of my account. I can tolerate anything, but not the tears in the eyes of my daughter if education is having no effect on this girl, then have her married who are you to take my life decisions? if you would like to see someone marry so much, then have your daughter married shut up!

You are being rude apologize, he is your uncle he is not my uncle it is the father of this girl that is talking and I well and truly know that she has stolen the money, so why should I apologize? get lost get yourself out of my sight and don’t show me your face again will you get lost or not? Zafar… forgive her she is just a child Ayesha… Aimen made a mistake and for that, I apologize no auntie… don’t embarrass us by apologizing this is who my daughter is learn something from her and teach that girl some manners so that she doesn’t embarrass us in the future come on dear wow mom! your hair is still the same they just get dry from time to time get it oiled by me your massage helps me relax Mahira…

Get ready in the morning, we have to leave for work? What work? to take care of someone’s children and you will come back when there is still sunlight from nine in the morning to five in the evening I… what will I do all that time in their house? did you talk to Jawed, Shaheena? did he give permission? I talked to him and he has no problem with it and why would I lie? I talked to him what do you want to talk to Jawed about? and I’ve already gave them my word that Mahira will go to work from tomorrow.

Let Jawed come back, I’ll talk to him and let you know have you no trust in your daughter to send her anywhere alone that is very strange it is an opportunity to make a little money Mahira will go there, I’ve said it and I don’t want to hear anything else mother my dear Aimen! mend your ways at least be silent in front of Zafar should I listen silently to everything he has to say to me? it is your job to listen not mine you stupid fool! I am doing this all because of you that Shagufta, soon will not be with us after that.

I will see about Ayesha and make her life a living hell he says, ‘my daughter is my pride’ the things. I will do with his pride the whole world will see I don’t know what comes over me when I see Ayesha, I feel like tearing up her face. I hate her that much I feel exactly the same for the first time, I begged in front of someone the revenge for this…

I will surely take from this father and daughter okay, from next time I will try and control my anger but for now give me some money, I have to go huh? money? for what? and where are you going? I told you my exams are about to start, I have to take notes and some books from my friend’s place such a scene happened today, you can go tomorrow I don’t care about any scene my work is more important than this scene give me some money.

Pray to God, for her why do you think like that dear? we are with you Shahmeer yes? go, your father is calling you it’s okay Ayesha auntie I’ve kept… Shaheena’s sister-in-law to take care of the house she’ll come in the morning to do the house work and take care of your needs as well I don’t need anyone when I have you that’s all good, but… I come back in the evening… I’m at the office, from morning till the evening you’ll be at home alone, who will do the house work? You can’t get up and you have the habit of seeing the house in tip top fashion we are only two people, there isn’t much work what is the need to increase our expenses? We will have to pay her something what are you talking about? if it were up to me… I would happily sacrifice anything for your sake and this is only a little money don’t be worried about it okay okay then do as you please do whatever you want wow! I had no idea that my wife would look so lovely, when I come back from work today who have you dressed up for?

Who can I dress up for? who else can I dress up for, but my husband? who else comes inside this home to see me? I can’t take my eyes off you any day of the week, but… there is something different today you won’t ever stop teasing me do you realize how much I love you? that is why I don’t want to give you anything to worry about that is why I brought you and your mother in this house my father used to get thirty thousand rent for this house… but I can’t get that now I know how much my wife loves me Jawed, God has listened to our prayers what happened? brother Kamal came today and told me that his wife, Fazeela, fell down today she broke her leg, Jawed so what is there to be so happy about? this is something to be worried about yes… I know that this is something to be worried about, but… brother Kamal asked me to send Mahira to their home for a few days she’ll…

Help sister-in-law with the house work and cooking that is really good what else are neighbors for? brother Kamal also said that in exchange of the services Mahira provides… she’ll get eight thousand why eight thousand? we have a friendly relationship with them… don’t take any money… why? I… mean that… all of this is beneficial for them, all of their work will be done and… Mahira will get some money that will help around in the expenses of the house what is so bad about that? hmm? but… there is a problem… mom will never agree to this your mother… talked to me about her jewelry she told me… that God forbid if something happens to her… then I should keep the jewelry in safe keeping look now… there are so many guests at our home if something were to happen…

Then who will we blame and accuse? my mother gave them to me on my wedding and some were given to me by Zafar you keep them safe with you auntie loves you like a sister yes dear that is why I’m in peace that there is someone… that will take care of my daughter after my death I will… keep this jewelry safe… with me don’t you get worried how are you feeling now? thank God I feel much better what happened? I wanted to… talk to you about something yes, say it you know brother Kamal… he asked us if we could send Mahira at his home to work for a few days send Mahira? why Jawed? What happened? this is absolutely unreasonable sister Fazeela… she… broke her leg… but why Mahira? mother if Mahira works there, she might be able to help them out the poor thing can’t even walk and do you know, he’s paying for the work? no, no we don’t want any money why? why don’t you want any money? Jawed?

Brother, you don’t know that Kamal sister Fazeela is a decent woman she’ll be there and Jawed, brother Kamal comes back from his office when it is night time they… live just beside us I’ve given them my word, it would look bad if we were to refuse now yes mother, the poor thing’s leg is broken, it would not right of us to refuse them in their current situation but son try and understand let’s see for a couple of days, it might be that they, themselves, refuse how can I send her?
