Transcendence (A Muslim-Christian Story)
"So you approached me without being aware of my identity?" He asks me, while raising an eyebrow.
To say I was shocked would be an understatement.
It takes me a while to compose myself and form a sensible reply. "Yes, I wasn't aware of your identity."
"You might think you can fool me, but trust me, this has happened quite a few times before as well." He says with a very serious expression.
I'm baffled by his accusation. This man has the audacity to question my intentions when he's the one trying to converse with me all along.
I don't know what comes over me, but whenever I'm overwhelmed with anger, it turns into tears.
And before I can compose myself, I taste the salty tears in my mouth.
I take a few deep breaths, place the cup on the side table and get up to leave. "Thank you for your hospitality and your excellent assessment of my character. I will now take your leave."
With that, I turn to head towards the door but he grabs my hand and pulls me towards him.
Ameerah is a happy-go-lucky 23 year old who has recently graduated from med school. She is an optimist with quite a rosy view of the world.
She is far from perfect. She has her faults; some she's aware of and others, not so much. She's stronger than most in some ways, weaker than many in others.
Sebastian McArdle is a Consultant in General Surgery at the Royal London Hospital. He's one of the youngest and most accomplished surgeon in town. To an outsider, his life would seem perfect. He's young, handsome, successful, rich and hails from one of the most respected families in the country. But life is not always what it seems to be. He has his own set of problems.
As Our Holy Qur'an states
Surah An-Nisa, Verse 28:
Allah desires that He should make light your burdens, and man is created weak.
Follow a story of trials and errors, to finding her path to love, and to Life.
