I can't believe what they had turned my house into. My father had hired some decorators. They did a great job.
I was walking towards the stage where Tahir was standing waiting for me. He smiled when he saw me. Umaima and Miley helped me to get ready and they are walking me down towards Tahir.
He was actually looking handsome in suit. I had ignored his calls and messages all day just to make him little bit impatient.
When I reached near him. He took my hand in his kissing my knuckles. Everyone cheered.
"Bring the rings please." my dad ordered. A man brought a trolly which was decorated beautifully. Their was a cake in middle and our rings were placed on either side of the cake.
"Wow that's so beautiful." I said in awe.
"Not more than you." I heard him say making me blush.
"Exchange the rings son." Mr. Shah said handing the ring to Tahir.
I put my hand in his as he slipped the ring on my ring finger. Everyone cheered happily. But me, I felt empty.
I had plastered the fake smile on my face. Trying my best to concerntrate and not to breakdown.
"Maha put the ring on his finger." my mother nudged me handing me the ring. I snapped out of my thoughts. This is my life. This is what is destined for me.
Its Tahir not David. With that I slipped the ring into his hand.
Everyone came hugging me congratulating me and Tahir. But my mind was ditching me reminding me about the promise I made to him.
I broke my promise. I had said I will wait for him and here I am getting engaged.
"Hey let them cut the cake now.!" Moin said. Everyone agreed and gave us some space. I picked up the knife only to make it fall on the floor because of the sudden touch.
Tahir held my hand to cut the cake it was so sudden that I flinched and dropped that knife.
"Maha are you ok.?" my mum came rushing towards me.
"Yes..yes mum its just slipped out of my hand." I shrugged my shoulder. I can feel Tahir noticed my hesitation.
One of the maid brought the new knife and this time we cut the cake together. Tahir was so close to me. And the thing that terrified me was I didn't felt anything. No tingling no warmth no racing heartbeats nothing.
"Maha are you ok.?" Tahir asked me concerned.
"Yeah I am fine it just I am not used to this kind of attention you know." he nodded and smiled at me. I excused myself and went into my room closing the door I let the tears flow.
It was my decision than why am I feeling like this.? Why I am breaking my own heart.? I wanted to marry Tahir I was the one who said yes but why my heart just can't accept it.?
I have to forget David. I have to do that. I can't let him ruin me. I love him but now I have to love Tahir. He is my future my fiancee.
"Maha open the door." I heard Miley knocking on my door. I opened the door she came in and hugged me. I cried on her shoulder.
"Why can't he love me Miley.? Why can't I love Tahir.? Why it have to be so complicated.?" I sobbed.
"Shhhh calm down Maha. Everything happens for a reason you only said that to me yesterday right. Please calm down." she patted my back soothingly.
"It hurts...it hurts Miley." I pointed my finger towards my heart "It hurts in here. I feel empty. He took my heart with him Miley. I want it back. I want him back." I sat on the floor crying.
"Maha please don't do this to yourself please. Control yourself its your engagement day you are engaged. Think about Tahir he is worried about you Maha. You were meant to be there with him but you are here crying for the person who don't even care for you. Now come on I will do the quick touchup. I am thankful for the person who invented the waterproof makeup." she tried to joke. I nodded my head wiping my tears away I let her do my makeup.
Its about my father reputation people will gossip if I won't go out. And I can't risk that. I don't have the energy to deal with my angry parents.
So I planted the fake smile on my face for the rest of the night.
