Rim actually didn't know where to go. Hashim wanted to give her a place to stay but she refused him. She couldn't trust anyone at that time.
Aimlessly she went to a taxi park with Tamim and they boarded a taxi to k city which is the capital of U country.
They reached k city and checked in a small guest house where she paid to stay for a week. During that week she stayed at the guest house, she treated her young brother and the fever he had gone. She was thankful for that.
She realized that she is responsible for taking care of her young brother. Checking her bank account balance that her parents used to deposit every month, Rim decided not to use the money for her own benefit but keep it for Tamim.
When that week gone, Rim decided to send Tamim to a school that wasn't know to her family relatives. A school that is on the outskirts of the city. She made sure to research for the school's academic records and they weren't that bad. She put Tamim in a boarding section and took his class teacher's mobile contact. She wished to talk with her only family member she was left with frequently.And putting him in that school would help to hide him.
Because she was afraid to use the money for other things, Rim decided to pay Tamim's tuition for a whole year. She believed that she will get a job and make the situation better for the two of them.
After making all the necessary arrangements for Tamim, she was relieved and found a simple place for her stay for a while and then started to look for a job.She was confident that she will get a better place when she started working. Because she had just joined university, Rim only had a her high school certificate and most of the jobs weren't in favor of that qualifications.
The day she started searching for a job, Rim wasn't aware of the political riots at were in the city. She left her small house that only had a mattress and useful necessities to begin her search for the job.
She frowned when she saw people running for their lives. Teargas was everywhere accompanied with bullets that the police shoot directly to the rioters.
It was the direction she was going. Her foots suddenly paused as if glued in that place. Her thoughts went to the bullets that she heard the last time she spoke with her mother over the phone.
She was trembling but the people who saw her also just bypassed her. Everyone was running away.
Some people even thought that she lost her mind.
A man who was in his office observing what's going on down on the streets, so her and came to take her away. He didn't care about the Teargas bottle that was sent into his direction.
He grabbed her by the waist and took her inside one of the building.
He looked at her and shouted What were you doing there? Were you..... Rim just then came back to her sense and realized what was going on.
The man's angry roar didn't come out because he was taken away by a beautiful yet pitiful face. Beauty without brain he outtered and strolled inside the building leaving Rim standing their blankly.Did he just insulted me. She was angry but he was already gone. Does he think that being handsome was enough for him to throw those words to me. She kept on arguing until she came to know that that day she wasn't going to get any job given to the situation in the city.
Two days after the situation came back to normal and Rim decided to go out again.
Wherever she went in search for a job, she was disappointed due to her lack of qualifications and the ones that were willing to offer her a job, were lustful men who needed to first sleep with her the thing she was disdainful of.
One day she was tired and didn't know where to go next and she came into contact with a man power office.
On the sign posts, they showed that they wanted cleaners, house maids and plumbers.
Rim was desperate for a job and among the jobs on the list, a cleaning one sounded better. She thought that she should try on it. Thus she went into the office and inquired about the job.
Unfortunately for her, there wasn't any one in need of a cleaner but a maid. But she knew very well that in her 19 years of existence, she doesn't know how to do house chores.
That was so because her parents treated her like a princess and they didn't put it into consideration for her to learn house chores. They had more than seven maids at home.
The man in the office was also on pressure to have a maid available at that hour,. He had got a client and deceived her that he has one. Seeing Rim in front of him, he felt relieved some how . But her appearance was something that he was worried about.
The girl was too good looking and dressed well to be a maid. He wondered why was she in front of him in the first place. As he was still on her, his client arrived. A old lady at that.
The old lady seized Rim and a thoughtful smile appeared on her face. She told Alex the man who was in the office with Rim that she was happy with the maid.
Alex was to happy but Rim on the other side had doubt whether to accept the job.
But thinking about her situation and Saleh's words when he told her that you have to hide for sometime, Rim choose to go with the old lady.
The old lady was very good too her so Rim decided to tell her about herself and the fact that she doesn't know house work. She was happy when the old lady said that she will learn slowly.Rim wondered if the old lady really want a maid. Becaise how can she accept the person who doesn't know work.
So now here she is at the old lady's villa.
Although the old lady told her that she lives with her grandson and his girlfriend, Rim hadn't come into contact with the grandson in the last five months she stayed in the villa. May be today they will come back from wherever they went. Only she saw his girlfriend who hates Rim for a reason she doesn't know.
Rim stopped crying and decided to be the person she is right now. A maid. Even though she feels like she is dreaming, she forced her mind to accept the fact. She had to get it that however much she misses and cry for her father and brothers,they will not come back.And for her mother, Rim just prayed that there will be a miracle and she came to see her alive one day. After all till now her dead body a word that sounds too harsh to her ears wasn't found.She doesn't no cooking, cleaning and other related house chores. She got her phone and opened YouTube.She is greatful that there is wifi in the villa that you can use however much you want.Since the old lady was kind to her, Rim wanted to please her and also make her fellow servants who look down on her more jealousy.She downloaded few cooking videos from YouTube to her phone. She thought to start with cooking. Every maid in the villa has a day to cook. But because the old lady
Grandma don't be fooled by this kind of a woman. Doesn't she have eyes to see where she is going.l don't even believe that she came to work as a maid in the first place. What kind of a maid look like this. Malik replied after the oldlady accused him of shouting at a woman.He just checked the young girl in front of him and couldn't find anything bad on her. What game did she think she is playing. This the Johnson family incase she doesn't remember. Play tricks won't help her. It will instead lead her into trouble.May be she was sent by our enemies. He continued to think in his mind. His eyes not leaving her entire body.Rim rose her head from the ground on the broken pieces of glass she been looking at for a while and stared directly in Malik's eyes.What do you mean what kind of a maid look like this? Rim asked Malik. He was settled. No maid has dared to look him in the eyes and give him a question.Not even dare stand near him for a minute.<
It was dark when Rim woke up. Realizing that she didn't have evening work today, she decided to learn more of her cooking by the help of YouTube.Tomorrow is her day to cook she must practice what she has learnt.As the old lady didn't see Rim when she by passed the kitchen, she told one one of the maids Rosalinda to go and call her. Hearing the knock on her room door, Rim logged out of YouTube and opened the door. Grandma want to see you. Rosalinda said un willingly and disappeared from Rim's sight like she was being chased by a ghost.Rim got used to their behaviors so she wasn't affected but only wondered what the old lady could be wanting her for.She put her phone into her suit case, locked it and strolled out of the room. She looked for the old lady and she wasn't in the living room or dinning table Rim went straight to the kitchen.Reaching there, Rim saw the old lady happily chatting with Magdalena. She waited for them to stop and then appr
Rim didn't want to take the money. After all she is paid her salary.And thinking that there is no difference from her and other maids, she was really reluctant. But the old lady pretended to be hurt.She had no choice but to take it. Am so happy my child that you did something like that.I knew it that you will make me proud one day. But l didnt expect it to be too soon. The old lady resumed her smile and said to Rim.Hmm training her into someone good won't be that diffucult. The old lady cheered with in.Hmm thank you grandma and don't worry l will do my best to learn everything slowly. Like a child that has been praised of doing something, Rim told with a beaming smile.Hmm okay dear did you finish preparing yourself if not go and do it quickly because the moment Malik comes down, we will be leaving. The old lady informed. Magdalena please go check on others if they are done. By the way did you all finished having breakfast? The old lady continued.No
Rim dressed in her clothes she prepared last night. She was looking too good in them. Malik found staring at her more than necessary. So maids dress like this. Hmm slowly by slowly her true aim will be out soon. Can a maid dress like this. Actually Malik loved her way of dressing but he was finding it difficult to accept it.So sorry grandma to make you wait but l couldn't find my hair pins in time so l delaid. Rim apologized. The moment she sat in the car. It's okay dear we didn't wait that long. What's important is that you are here now. The old lady replied. And ordered the driver to start the car.Rim sat in front with the driver, the old lady and Malik behind. If not the ring of his phone, Rim wouldn't have realized that Malik was also inside the car.She didn't see him when she entered.The drive to Sand beach was in silent most of the time, only the old lady and Malik could exchange few words. took them only 45 minutes. It is Sunday making the road free of

Next to him is Malik you know him. And Tanasha here also. Plus Kim Malik's best friend..The old lady finished her introduction. Helo Rim Tariq was the first one to great her and others went on. Helo she replied. Come sit next to me here who knows we will become friends. Tariq continued.Seeing Tariq's carefree ways, Rim was again reminded of her brothers. She slowly went and sat down. From now on wards am your elder brother. Okay! Tariq suggested. No am the oldest why do l have to call your big brother. Rim said rolling her eyes to him.How old are you? Tariq asked.

Kim on the other hand asked. No uncle.. Rim
Rim got out of Sarah's embrace. She was about to ask her some questions but then she caught a glimpse of Tanasha staring at them as she came nearer. So Rim hesitated.Mother in law here you are! I was looking for you everywhere. Tanasha choroused not sparing Rim an eye like she is invisible.Ahh Tanasha l have been here all along what is it you want to tell me. You can go a head. Sarah replied.When Rim heard that Tanasha wanted to have a word with her mother in law, she said;Mom l will leave the two of you talk. Am going in the water now.Okay dear but be careful. Don't drown yourself okay? Sarah replied to her. Okay l will was Rim's reply before she disappeared out of their sight.She went straight into the bathroom and changed her red bikini to pink one. After she was done, she tired her hair into two big pigtails. She also applied pink lipstick to her lips before she went down near the lake. She started taking selfies.Every thing she c
Malik repeated the process two times until Rim's chest begun to rise. She started to breath again. But she was too weak to even lift a finger.Malik then pamped her chest by his strong fingures and Rim released all the water she had drunk.Rim later opened her eyes slowly but then she closed it. She needs hospital now. Malik informed them.Tariq where is my car keys or go get the car ready we will send her to the hospital right away. Sarah said worriedly. Malik will she be okay why has she closed her eyes again? The old lady asked. She was blaming herself to bring them here. Such a little girl to suffer what if she wasn't seen in time. Oh God please heal her soon. She kept on praying in her mind.Don't worry grandma. The first aid l gave her will help for a while until she reaches the hospital. Be rest assured. She is just too weak. Malik explained again.Hmm okay was the reply for the old lady.But she really felt uncomfortable about Rim's situatio
