She loved him.
He loved another.
She was ready to die for him.
He pretended to be oblivious to that.
She was crazy for him.
He was crazy for the other girl, but not the mad kind of crazy like she was.
She was determined to get to her destination but at the same time immature, hot- headed, sweet, and carefree. A weird combination, right?
But what happens when you set the wrong destination for yourself? You lose, right? But she was not the one to accept defeat. She was a determined girl and loved challenges.
He was mature but not enough to see what was the best for him.
It wasn't even her fault that she couldn't see any other man except him.
His name was Aaamir Sheikh. Her name was Areesha Aftab. Aamir fell for the other girl Shazre. It was like love at first sight.
Her mother taught her not to look at any man- not because it was prohibited in islam- rather because she was reserved for him. Her mother didn't teach her religion. No one cared about her. All they cared about was that she married him as there had been some promises made in the past that were yet to be revealed to her.
What had destiny planned for Areesha? Was Aamir Sheikh the one for her as her mother had always said or was there someone out there waiting for her to pick up her broken pieces, fix her shattered heart, teach the real meaning of love and cherish her like no other.
Was that 'someone's' name Fawad Ali, the famous business man whom Areesha worked for or was he the same Aamir Sheikh with whom her name was always tied up?
Will Areesha make the right desicion in choosing him?
