I have a surprise for you...

Wanna know what?

Do you think you can handle it?

Sure you won't not want it? (Double negatives make the sentence positive! Lol don't snap😁)

Wanna know what's coming your way?

This is not the story's end!

For real, it isn't ending! Check this out 👇


She whirls around like a breath of fresh air
Spreading smiles to all those around!

She is witty and also commanding - a combo
That's very rare to be found.

She has a sunny temperament
And sports a smile all day long.

She trudges on in life with extreme effort
And the belief that she is quite strong.

People look at her smile and see a common girl.
They overlook the desolateness in her eyes.

While each day she wars a battle within
And comforts herself by weaving a web of lies.

There is always an endless abyss inside her,
A hollowness which claws her heart out.

She yearns for a companion to lean on,
Someone to support her in times of drought!

She isn't someone who would want any sort of extravagance.
A companion just for her will very well suffice.

She lives in a dream and just happens to forget
It's impossible in the Sahara to rain ice!

Sadly, life has absolutely naught to offer,
So she wipes her tears and gulps her sorrows away.

She gets up, dusts her back, prepares herself
To solely face another day.

You couldn't bully reality
And it would most definitely not comply

It's upto you to understand that there is more to things
Than what just meets your eye!

Be careful not to get carried away
By the fake smile she most often wears.

In reality, the sunny glow of her smile
Only reflects the depth of her inner scars!

Yeshhhh! There's more! I'm starting on the sequel of SL - TH.

What can I do? 😏 I am so desperate to play match maker between my non existent brother and my friend(s). I cannot do it in real life so I'd be doing it here *wink wink*

Some of you had guessed it rightly and some started thinking in a different track once... *cough cough* but hey! This was what was planned in my head!

Also, lots of love to those who wanted a printed version of my book. I was touched to know you wanted one. I am not a professional writer but trying to develop the qualities of one. Writing for me is purely instinctive. I have not attended any classes or courses for it save for the paid two hours session conducted by a foreigner nearly two years ago and I've only ever written because of the urge in me. Writing for me is an escape, a way to vent my feelings as I've mentioned on my bio and now that I've completed a novel, I feel so so glad Alhamdulillah. This is my first draft so when I finish polishing it and even find a sponser, I'd let you people know ❤❤❤ In Sha' Allah.

Btw, I have a task for you people. Comment what you think about SL; what it means to you and the best comments that catch my attention will be put on SL's description as well as the commentors will receive a follow from me! I'm excited to know what you feel. Comment away!

And guys please do not let your friends know how the book ends. Let them read for themselves. Do not spoil my book please.

Lot's of love,
