It was the morning of 13th November and the news of the king punching the doctor still has'nt subsided. I wanted what was happening inside the palace with the king his team etc. Just 3days back we recieved an invitation to the Nut Al Shajat Awards being held at the Dubai International Convention Centre. We as in the team i was under Dr. Mahroof that ass, as his assistant surgeon. The board after his arrest shifted me to head the team. It was terrifying and extremely tiring as i was at the hospital day and night and has'nt returned home until 5days. All l i wanted to do was sleep but no time at all, i didnt have the luxury to take a day off as there were 6 minor and major surgeries. The invitation was inviting our team of 4 for taking a new hospital to heights of success regarding recoveries etc. I recieved a personal invitation plus 2 regarding me being Awarded for Bravery. I was suprised that i was being awardedI was glad even Ajay was being Awarded. He took the day off and went on a shopping spree with his friends. I was in my new cabin with a new patient being admitted for removal of phlegm as she suffered from heavy chest Congestion. My though drifted to the function as to who all will be there, how the show will go etc.i was super excited as the chief guest was the Sheikh himself. I asked my new assistant to cover my shift for the night. I grabbed my went to the changing room throwing my scrubs into the sanitation bin, quickly wore my black jeans and grey t shirt and threw on my abaya. I had earlier asked my dad to pic me up from th hospital.
Earlier in the evening we all were dressed up and i wore my special occassion abaya with a scarf of ombre colour of rosewood and saman. I do my regular winged liner but also line my lower waterline and smoked it up a little bit and light handedly applied a cherry pink lipstick. I keep the foundation light and do a little contouring which has always been dodgy. For once i mean once it was alright. I wanted to pee so bad but we were almost late so couldnt go and i knew it would be unbearable at the wrong time. We soon reach the venue and i tell my parents to reach the main Convention hall on the 5th floor while i parked the car under in the basement and ran for the serve lift like my life depended on it. I pressed the button to the fifth floor and the door chose and began the descent to floor 5. It made a stop on the ground floor and the door opened...why why now why did it have to stop arghhh fuck, i hope this person suffers message rash in his Or her groin....holy thingamajiggs. Is that him for real? A tall man wearing a vibrant white kandourah and a white keffiyeh security By a black aghal. The kandourah didnt give away his physics but all i could say that he had a will proportioned built shoulder you would just want to hold. His almost prominent chin set into a strong jaw. His lips oh fuck...those lips that you want to kisses senslessly his aquiline nose that shows his high status....and lastly those eyes those innocent, playful yet calming eyes that hide the fire that says i can do things to you that you have imagined only in your dreams. You might be wondering that i might be some perverted creep shamelessly gawking at him taking so much time...well its not only the guys but girls as well that have an eagle for hot guys. Just a second is enough.
"assalamualaikum your highness." i wishes him hastily and casting a starstruck smile.
"Aairah...Aairah Syed. Sir." i replied nervously
"Miss Syed i dont bite....you can calm down." he said with a smile, a snicker was being held down. I smiled back knowing that he would be there for the ceremony too, but i still asked anyway.
"Are you here for the Convention too?"
Before he could reply the light of the lift flickered off and the lift jerked to a halt.
"ya hak aljaheem!?" (what the hell) Sheikh hamdan exclaimed in disbelief.
" No no no no... This cant be happening. Not now arghhh. What are we going to do?" i said worriedly looking at him.
"Calm down Ms. Syed...ze power will be back." he said trying to reassure me.
"Your highness i am fine. But i cant be late to this function. This has Never happened to me. I cant miss it." i say exasparated.
"Listen calm down remember i am the Crown prince and one of the chief guest... I dont think the function would have started. And By this time they would have known that i'm not present they will definitly look into it and we would get out...wait there is a phone here we could just call the security..." he said reassuringly as i go "oh." how stupid of me. He calls the security and speaks for a while...i could'nt figure out what he was saying as he was speaking quite fast. He then turns to me "the security will alert electrician and they will get soon here. So it might take a while, and for your nerves I'll let you know the function isnt going to starting since we are stuck here."
I sigh in relief. Ok atleast there wont be any thing related to me till we are there.
"you must be a staff here right? That why you seem so worried about reaching on time It will be fine, i will speak to the coordinator." he smiled.
Oh he thinks i'm an employee here. I Smiled to myself, let him have it and lets see his face when they call me for the award...hahahahaha. It was 10 minutes of awkward silence and i didnt want to stand more. My ego kicked in and i didnt want to sit in an elevator in the presence of a Prince standing, dusting this time i forgot the pressure on my bladder. I later then give in and sheepishly sat down with knees bent. I dont care if i'm embarrased here, he wont even remember me after tonight and nothing is more embarrasing Than puking in front of the king. Seeing me sit down the prince too sat down saying " thank goodness you sat down i was waiting for it. Didnt want to embarras myself sitting Before a lay sat. I had a long day standing most of the time.", i smiled "me too." we both laugh a little, i was actually suprised as to why the prince would Talk to me but then i realised that from all the tv news that he was a gentleman...it was nice of him to calm me down. Then i suddenly realised something so I ask him,
"sir if you dont mind me asking this...what are you doing in a service lift?"
"Oh me...um too many women outside. So service lift no one will think i will take that." he said.
"Smart...i'm a little claustrophobic" i blurt out and cover my mouth as soon as i could.
"We all are in some way. I feel its going to take longer. And i'm bored, if you dont mind can we play a game to pass time...whatever you suggest." he made the offer.
"um...name place animal things???." i realised i made a dumb suggestion as i didnt know what to play. I was still awestruck by his presence.
"that i play with my nice and nephews and they do not like." he replied and chuckled.
" now...i'm really embarrased, what do you suggest?" i ask him.
"hmm lets play 20 questions."he says smiling mischieviously.
