"I think they like you?"Hamza said as I nod looking at the window.

"I hope so,"I said and shiver a little that I even hugged myself.

"Are you cold?"He asked as I nod and he turned on the heater.

"Are you better?"I looked at him and he just smiled at me.

"Yes, I'm perfect."

I was being sarcastic.

Great, I'm being sarcastic to myself again. I'm crazy no. I'm going crazy.

"We are here."He said and I looked around.

"You were staring at me like I was something to you, you Okay?"I nod and got out of the car.

"I guess I ate too much, or that I'm feeling tired,"I said as he nods smiling.

"Let's go so you can rest."He said and I nod following him.

I'm hating this so much. It's like I'm playing the victim card to myself if he's not the criminal. I mean it could be my cousin for all I know. He's crazy to come here without a passport.

I saw Hamza's mouth move and I looked at him confused.

"What...I'm sorry I wasn't listening I was lost in my thoughts."

"You need to open the door, your the only one who has the key."I nod and opened the door.

"And by the way, there is no such thing as eating too much food, it's all you can eat buffet Yaz."He said and I closed the door.

"I don't care if you gain or lose weight. No, actually I need to watch the losing weight part. But no matter what your perfect who you are even if you gain anything."I nod and put my shoes on the shelf.

"I'll have a good night sleep. You have a great night sleep too."I said taking off my shoes.

"Oh wait. You need clothes, I'll be back. Just wait in Maya's room."

He went to Maya's room and I went o mine. I grabbed a T-shirt and sweaters that are my brothers. I went by him and he looked at me

"Hamza,"I said and he looked at the clothes.

"My brother usually sleeps over on the couch. There is the bathroom right by my room, you can take a shower there too."I said as he nods smiling.

He went to go to the bathroom and I go to my room. I locked the door and changed. I finished and I got out to see him dressed in my brother clothes and out of the bathroom. I go in and brush my teeth. I hand him a new pack I bought and he used it.

"Thanks for sleeping here for tonight. I don't know what I would do."I whisper as he chuckles.

"It's fine. As long as I can stay longer with you."I nod and wash my face feeling my anxiety rises even more.

I yawned and touched my cheeks. I grab a towel and wiped my face with it.

"Good night,"I said as he got out walking to Maya room.

"Good night."He said and I went into my room

Once I went into my covers, I wasn't able to sleep.

Why did I ask him? What if it's him and he kills me in my sleep? Or even worse sleeps next to me. I drink a little water from the water bottle that was on my nightstand.

I looked at the pills and took one to fall asleep but that didn't work. It just hurt my head.

I heard a snore and saw it was from Hamza. So he's asleep. And I'm over here away Because I think he could kill me. I got up and closed my door slowly so he doesn't wake up. I go to my desk and turn my laptop.

I saw a bunch of assignments and work on them. While drinking energy drinks from the mini fridge I have.

I finish and looked outside to see the time for prayer and went to pray. I prayed for the health of my best friend Maya. My father's wellbeing. My brother's wellbeing. And my friends Zak and Josh wellbeing. Including Their family.

I then put my mat and moor away with my hijab. I go check some stuff for Saturday school. I can't do that anymore so they said I have to help the new teacher with this. I know I'm going to miss it but I have to pay her bills. And it's expensive every time she stays there.

I go to the kitchen to make some breakfast and hear a groan.

"Good morning."

"Good morning, did you sleep well?"I nod and didn't turn to look at him.

"I'll go take a shower."I nod and hear him leave the kitchen.

"I'll be staying for breakfast from my beautiful fiancé."I rolled my eyes and made breakfast.

He came out and he changed already. His hair was still wet.

"You going to get sick, it's cold outside."He smiled and came to sit.

He started to eat and I pout. I grab a towel and slowly rub his hair to dry.

"You really care about me."

"I am your fiancé right?"I asked as he chuckled.

I really want to throw up!

"Of course."

After that, I put the towel down and went to sit with him and eat. I saw him and he held out a spoon.

I open my mouth and eat it. I saw him smile but I was just waiting for him to leave.

His phone rings all of a sudden and he got up. He sighed and looked at me.

"Sorry I can't stay here any longer I have to go to work, I'll see you tonight."I nod as he walked away a little angry.

I followed him to the door and he put on his shoes. He opened the door and waved saying bye. I finally closed the door.

He's gone!

Now I can just go back to sleep!
