Then I said to my mom & my sister, " How could you do this to our cousin you know very well that he is a good young man Not only that but he is a lovesick over Yara & Yara likes him back, What about him? "
Waad's sister Yara said, " Waad I must marry Salem, As you know, He is as a son to our father, further more he always supports our family & As you see our father in dire need of a powerful son who can stand in his back, I should always sacrifice my own well-being in order to protect our fathers's peace of mind & our family future. "
" Because in this period of our life our family need a man who would be able to stand in our family's back & support our family with all he have, Although I like our cusion but he won't ever be able to do this but Salem could do. "
Then Yara said while her eyes were filling of tears because she felt so sad to give up her only dream of marrying her cousin, but at the same time she wanted to convince herself that she was doing the right thing by marrying Salem so she said to waad, " Salem is a good man, Even if I don't like him now, One day I will love him after we got married. "
Then waad said to David while she was completing telling him her story, " Then I could not say anything else, Although I love him so much but I love my sister more than any one in this life & her happiness is more important than mine, because I know very well that she cares about our father the most even more than herself & our father happiness is more important than hers ."
" If sacrificing her happiness like that for the sake of our father in order to let him have peace that what she thinks would make her happy then I will let her have what she wants . "
" So my sister decided to sacrifice her happiness for the sake of our father.......Then Waad sighed deeply as she said, " & I decided to sacrifice my happiness for her sake, Therefore I preferred to remain silent, Wishing that she would get the happiness that I have always dreamed that I get it by marrying Salem. "
Since that time Salem stayed in our house at the guests' room.
[ Two days later ]
It was my aunt's wedding day, So all of us decided to go to the wedding party, Even my father wanted this as well, So Salem put him on a wheelchair & all of them went to my aunt's wedding's party except me & my sister Yara, We supposed to follow them to the wedding party after we got dressed, So they went first. "
" Although my sister Yara got dressed in order to attend our aunt's wedding party with all of us, but before our leaving(waad & Yara) 5 minutes, She looked so pale & told me that she feels unwell. "
So I put my hand on her forehead to find her burning, She had a terrible fever, I got shocked, Then I told her that she must remain in the house & I told her that I will stay with her in order to take care of her, But she vehemently refused & insisted on making me go to my aunt's wedding. "
