Yayi typing kan ya ije wayar sa ya gyara kwanciya amma ya rasa samun kansa da iya barci.
Tunanin Laylah kawai yayi ta yi. A rayuwa ba macen da ta taba having such effect on him,
koh deceased wife dinsa lokacin da suka fara haduwa bata yi having irin effect dinnan a
kansa ba. Hasali ma a lokacin baya son ta kwata kwata ita ma kuma haka, kawai iyaye ne
suka yi hadin and there was nothing they could do about it. Sai da suka yi zama har na
shekara daya da Fatima kan maganan kirki ta fara hada su, a haka suka fara har suka zama
friends and from there, gradually, they realised they were in love and in no time, they
accepted each other har rabon Fadeel ya shiga tsakanin su. Wata ýar dariya ya saki da ya
tuno da zahra sa.
"Allah jikan ki Fati na, ya raya mana Fadeel". Ya fadi in a low voice. Da kyar Abdulmalik ya
iya barci ranar. Tunani yike ta yi of both Laylah and Fatima. He was confused about his
feelings, shi dai ya san har ga Allah after loosing Fatima ba macen da zaya iya taba so bare
har zancen aure ya shiga tsakaninsu amma kuma yanzu ya rasa yanda yike jin Laylah nan a
ransa, ta shiga kawai ta kwanta a ciki. Bai taba kula da harkar wata ýa mace kamar yadda
ya damu da na Laylah ba.
"Just friends.. wantjust friendship". Yayi ta fadi ma kansa har dai barci finally yayi awon
gaba dashi.
Ita kam Laylah bayan ta ije waya wata murmushi tayi ta yi. Ta rasa me ke faruwa da ita. Ita
fa dan kawai ta samu access to Nawfal Muhammad Fadoul ta ansa number din wannan
Abdulmalik din har take chatting dashi sai dai zuciyar ta tana bata wata labari na daban.
Duk ta rasa why her heart was beating rapidly lokacin da suke chatting, gashi yanzu sun
gama chatting din but everything has been replaying on her head, from the first time she
set eyes on him har zuwa lokacin da ya taya ta zaba ma Mr Yates shirt. Har imaginations din
ta was conjuring up his face. Ya Allah! Laylah has never felt that way for any guy, none but
one guy who is now her past, a past she'd chosen to bury a long time ago.
"Just friendship...that's what I want". Ta fadi ma kanta. Amma kwata kwata her heart was
not in compliance with what she wants. Amma ita a ganin ta, ta ya zata taba falling in love
with a mere driver? And wani irin namiji ne ma zai yi accepting dinta for who she is? A
stained veil, jikinta dauke yike da Jirwaye me matukar yawa. Wannan tunanin ne ya jawo

anything but want the best for her kids. Wane toh? Ya Suraj? Koh kuwa ýar uwar ta, rabin
jikinta Auta. Tunanin nan take har barci ya kwashe ta.
The next day tana cikin breakfast kenan Simon ya shigo. Cike da fara'a suka gaisa tace ya

"Ladies and gentlemen! May I announce the presence of one of the world's young and
gallant entrepreneurs, one of the most influential and richest in the world. The one and
only giant of khalif airlines and group of companies... Khalifa Al-Haydar". Aka yi
announcing shigowar sa sai dai madadin aga ya shigo, P.A dinsa ne ya shigo ya radawa
announcer din wani abu a kunne kan ya kuma fita. Ita kam Laylah duk ta qagu taga
shigowar wannan Khalifan, a zuciyar ta har rawa ta fara, her dream is finally coming true,
zata ga khalifa Al-Haydar amma sai ta ji announcer din ya fara magana kuma.
"So unfortunately Mr khalifa Al-Haydar couldn't grace this occasion but his adviser is here
to represent him so ladies and gentlemen can we welcome Nawfal Muhammad Fadoul".
