Zaara, wake up says Haider as she picks up the call. Good morning she replies, haider it’s only 8:30 am . Zaara adds while yawning. Yes I know it’s too early but we are meeting after 3 months and I am excited about meeting you after so long , so get up and get ready and meet me , Haider was fast to add. Okay replies zaara and disconnected the call. Haider was in Dubai for 3 months for some work , he had to leave in hurry so he had to leave without meeting her . So the first thing he’s doing after returning is meeting her. Haider Rings Raqif as Zaara disconnects call. Raqif picks up call in 6th ring and says Hi while half asleep. Get up Raqif we are meeting today get ready I will come to pick you up. I called zaara before you and she’s getting ready as well , Haider said In all the excitement. While Haider waited for my reply I had gone back to a fight with zaara where she accused of interfering in their relationship and not letting them spend time with each other just because I was speaking to Haider when he was in Dubai and it was Haider who had called. I wanted to say No but I didn’t wanted to hurt Haider . I said “Okay” . Haider said Ready as soon as possible and I will come to pick you first. Even before I could have said anything he disconnected the call. As he disconnected the call I starting to think about how will zaara reacte when she will see me there and that too me being in the car already. Well I laughed out loud at it as I wanted to see her face full of jealous and hate. I stood up from the bed and started to laugh again while imagining her face . All I couldn’t figure out was her hate for me . I always had pushed Haider towards her and have tried my level best that my interference in them is negligible but she wasn’t ready to accept that even after Haider telling her all this. Well it didn’t matter to me. Haider and I have been friends for a long and have seen various ups and downs, so whatever she wants she can but we are going to be what we were. Thinking all this I went to Bathroom, took a quick bath and got ready. My phone rang as I started to spray perfume on my clothes, the perfume gifted by Haider on my birthday. I recived the call and said “Boss Ready, where are you “. Just outside your Home my boss, Haider replied. Give a minute and I will there, i said and disconnected the call. Within couple of minutes I was out of home and heading towards Haider’s car , as he saw me approaching he came down of his car and started to run towards me . And gave me a tight Hug and I also joined him . Bro I missed he said while keeping me hugging tight. I missed alot i replied. Let’s get in the car , we have to pick up zaara as well he said while walking twoards his car. I followed him got into the car buckled my seat belt so did the haider and started driving. So how has your Dubai been , I asked Haider. Raqif, Dubai has been really boreing , he replied while looking at me. Why ? I asked . I was alone and I was missing you both , Haider again looked at me while he completed saying. Raqif I have got some chocolates for you and that too of your choice, Haider said while picking up his phone to call Zaara as we were near her residence. I looked back and a big bag of chocolates was there . I lifted it and started to look at into the bag and the bag was really full with different types of chocolates and all were my favourite. I looked at Haider with a smile and wanted to say him a thanks but as I saw him busy on phone , I decided not to disturb him.
I put my hand in a picked up a big bar of chocolate and kept the rest back on the back seat . While I was doing all this Haider was done with his call. Raqif did you like the chocolates he asked. Yes I said while opening the chocolate. I started to eat and after having a bite I offered it haider as well but he was polite to reject , so I started to eat in silence while he start scrolling his phone. While I was eating my chocolate in peace suddenly zaara’s words struck my mind and I wanted to tell it Haider but seeing smile on his face I decided not to say him anything that will ruin his mood . But I was worried about Zaara’s reaction seeing me, that too on the front seat. How could I forget what did she do when Haider returned from Singapore after 6 months . But I thought about not stressing about it and wait and watch how will she react , I had made my mind that if she said anything I would tell Haider what she did while he was back in Dubai. While I was thinking about all this Haider spoke”Raqif you seem to be enjoying the chocolates “. Yes Haider these chocolates are really tasty I said taking another bite. Well , where’s zaara, how much more time will she take , I asked Haider. She will here in couple of minutes she said. And there she is I said to Haider, oh yeah here is my lady love Haider said while getting down of the car with a huge big smile on his face. I watch them both smiling at each other and having some talk just few steps away from car . Zaara was constantly looking at me while talking to Haider. She still had a great smile on her face but I could sense what was going in her mind . After some time both walked towards the car , Haider opened back door for her, she sat in with a smile but as she got in i saw her mood changing. I looked back with a simle and said “Hi zaara , how are you “. I am great Raqif she replied back as Haider got into the car. So where should we go haider asked while buckling the seat belt. We both ( Zaara and Raqif) have different choice of places. The place that Raqif liked was disliked by Zaara and the place liked by Zaara was disliked by Raqif . Haider looked at both of us for an answer . My phone rang and I looked for it , while I was half asleep. Raqif I dreamed about Zaara , it was Haider calling. Haider it’s 5:00 am and you called me to tell this. I told you to get over her . But you still are in her thoughts and now you are even dreaming about her how do think will you get over her I said to Haider while i was still half asleep. Hmm you are saying that right I need to stop thinking about her .while we were talking, I recived a notification and it was Zaara’s message which read “Raqif I dreamed about Haider ” . This message made me laugh and I replied to her “Haider is on call and he dreamed about you” . What dream did you see , i messaged her again. Remember when Haider was in Dubai? She said. Oh I got it , i replied while asking haider about his dream and he said the same that he dreamed when he had come back from Dubai after 3 months. Oh, fine let’s sleep, i said to Haider. Okay Raqif take care haider said and disconnected the call. These guys are still some much into each other that they even dream the same and at the same time. I said while closing my eyes and went back to sleep.
