I hope none of my brothers see him, well they might just think its a random man following me, unless he decides he wants to speak to me. I love my brothers I really do, however, being an only girl with 5 brothers...need I say more?
3lawi: Baby sis, shloonich? 3lamich mit25ra ilyoum? oo oo 7mani shouf il vanquish
Lulu: I had to work late, Hi 7mani shlonik?
3lawi was 28 and is a teaching English ib ma37ad technalogia. The pay was good and he enjoyed his job but he just did not want to settle down. 7amni was our neighbour and 3lawi's best friend, they were attached at the hip we would call them the married couple. 7amni always had a thing for me, and to be honest I thought he would have asked my hand in marriage a long time ago, but I guess I am not the one for him. We live in a society were your family name defines who you can and cannot marry.
Dont get me wrong, I come from a middle class family. My father was an engineering professor at KU. My mom was an accountant for a major company. However, supporting 6 children can be pricey. I got everything I asked for, however, I never asked for more than they could afford.
So it was 3lwai 28, Me 26, A7mad 24, Fai9al 21, 6alal 16, and Marzouq 12.
Lulu: Hi mama, whats for lunch?
Mom: Machbous la7am mama.
Fai9al: luluty, ishrayich we go out to eat?
Even though Fai9al was 5 years younger than me, we were close. I talked to him about everything and he came to me for everything. He was in his 3rd year studying mechanical engineering. He was the good son, the one who stayed home, listened to the parents and never got into trouble.
Lulu: ee okay just us?
Fai9al: la lets take 6alool o Zooz 7aram they were studying all week.
Fai9al drove, and we headed over to Chilies, it was Marzouq's favorite restaurant, remember he is only 12. We settled into the booth and quickly started to argue about what we wanted to order.
I love my brothers to death, and I am so lucky to have an understanding brother like Fai9al. 3lawi and A7med are very over protective, but I am their only sister. My nickname in the family was baby sis. Even the younger boys called me that.
Lulu: Zooz whats wrong?
Marzouq: bagolikum shay bs dont laugh please. A girl gave me a love letter ilyoum, o I dont like her, I mean she is just a friend.
My little brother is growing up.
Fai9al: uh ok did you talk to her?
Marzouq: min 9ijik? fashla shagolaha I dont like you
6alal: La ya 7mar tell her we are friends, mino hal 9y3a ily at 12 sending love letters.
Lulu: 6alal, ma a7ib hal kalam!
6alal: sorry baby sis
We told Marzouq what to do.
You know the feeling you get when you know you are being watched? I had that feeling. I did not want to look, to make it obvious, so I slowly lifted my eyes up to meet his gaze.
It was him. What was he doing here? Did they finish?
