Finding Adam (A Modern Muslim Love Story)
TEXT COPYRIGHT © M. A. ™ 2016
"We can never be together," Adam suddenly says. His voice is small, but it sounds like soft velvet to my ears. "We're too different. Th-this marriage was a... it was a mistake."
Suha Zaid never thought her senior year could get any worse. Not only does she have to balance between social life and her chances of going to college, but she also must fight against her long-time bully Samantha Griols, who has been biting her back ever since she wore the hijab. Now, imagine how it feel like when she got an arranged proposal to marry the mysterious Adam Fatih, her so-called brother's best friend. Claiming that he's going through a rough time and requires serious help, her parents eventually convince her to marry him, a decision that will turn her life completely upside down.
Adam Fatih hates his life. Hidden behind endless textbooks and packs of cigarettes, he spends his life either studying for restless hours, drinking and hanging out with the wrong party, or smoking and committing misconducts. In short, he does anything and everything he can to forget about his broken past that somehow won't let go of him. Now, when his supposed parents decide that the best way they can solve all his problems is by marrying him off to Suha Zaid, he's furious. But after he realizes that they won't get off his back if he doesn't marry her, he eventually agrees.
She's insecure and emotionally unstable.
He's broken and has no faith.
She thinks he's rude, awkward, and intimidating.
He thinks she's weak, annoying, and stubborn as hell.
Are they the perfect match? Read on to find out.
