Farida is in love with Saleem, she thought her friend Baheeja had gotten ahead of her in the race for Saleem’s heart but it wasn’t what she thought. Baheeja only happened to be close to Saleem with no strings attached, she would help her talk to Saleem. Will Saleem x Farida love story happen?
Baheeja’s eyes flashed like sparkling star out of surprise…
“You don’t mean what you are saying” right? Asked Baheeja.
“I mean every bit of it “replied Farida. I find myself loving him as the day goes by “I tried controlling my feelings, but I couldn’t “she added.
“Hmm! my friend…what can i say…”
“Are you also in love with him? asked Farida.
“Me! no way. It’s just that we get along so well that’s why we are always together” she replied.
Farida sighed heavily, it was as if a big rock was lifted off her chest.

“Its because i am serious” she uttered
“Hmm! go ahead and speak, I am listening” he replied sluggishly.
“Hmm! She sighed heavily and hesitated for a while before speaking.
“It’s about my friend Farida” she said.
