Prompt: future fic: how Sana and Yousef really get together… hope you decide to write it!
Chapter 2: Together
She arrived at 4pm sharp. He was already there, sitting on the same place where they had talked a few weeks ago. As soon as he saw her, he stood up, nervously fidgeting with his shirt. Sana approached him with a serious expression. Yes, she knew now the truth, she knew he liked her –at least that’s what Noora said- she knew why the kissed had happened, she knew that he wasn’t with Noora. But that didn’t erase the fact that she had been suffering almost three weeks about that, it didn’t erase the fact that even though he liked her, he had kissed another girl instead of talking to her. So Sana thought that would allow her to make that boy suffer a little bit while having fun about it.
“Hey, thank you for coming” Yousef said
He looked like he was about to do the most important job interview of his life. Sana almost felt bad for him and she hadn’t even opened her mouth yet.
“Should we sit?” Yousef asked
“Don’t think that’s necessary”
“I have to tell you something important, it might take awhile”
“You really don’t have to tell me anything. I already know” Sana said
“You…know? What, what exactly do you know?” he stuttered
“I know about Noora” she said crossing her arms on her chest
Yousef widened his eyes in surprise, he wasn’t expecting that.
“Did she tell you?”
“She didn’t have to. I saw you.”
“What?” Yousef felt his heart pounding on his chest
“I saw you kissing Noora”
“Sana, I can explain”
“You don’t have to explain anything. I saw you kissing Noora and I also know you met her on Sunday, I heard Adam and Mikael talking about it”
“What? No, no, you got it all wrong”
“You think I’m stupid?” Sana asked raising an eyebrow
“Of course not, but you misunderstood it”
“So you do think I’m stupid, great”
“I don’t think you’re stupid Sana. I just need you to let me explain what happened”
“So now you’re saying that I don’t let you talk, wow”
“No, this is all coming out wrong” Yousef said brushing his hair with his fingers, a nervous manner he had.
“I’m telling you, Yousef, you don’t have to explain anything to me”
“I do, I do have to explain it to you. Just give me a chance”
“I already know what I need to know”
“Yousef, I know everything and nothing you say is going to change my mind”
“Just hear my version, please, that’s all I’m asking” he said almost begging
Sana looked at him, he really looked like he was suffering. As much as she was enjoying the moment she thought maybe it was time to give him a rest.
“I already know that. I know that you kissed Noora because you thought I didn’t like you. I know you stopped the kiss because you didn’t feel anything about it. I know you met Noora on Sunday so you could tell her that you don’t like her. And I know you told her you like me”
Yousef took a time to process all the information. He stood there, his mouth slightly opened, blinking really fast repeating all the conversation on his head.
“What?” he whispered
Sana’s lip slowly curved into a big smile that ended with her laughing.
“Fy faen, Sana!” he said covering his face with his hands making her laugh even harder “I thought you were pissed at me, why would you do that?”
“I just wanted to make you suffer a little bit” she said shrugging
“You’re so mean” he said shaking his head but smiling a lot more relieved.
“Hey, I’ve spent three weeks crying, you’ve only suffered like 5 minutes. I think it’s fair”
Yousef’s face dropped
“You’ve been crying?” he asked “because of me?”
“It wasn’t just because of you, don’t get too cocky” she joked
“Sana, I’m serious”
“So am I, but that doesn’t mean we have to keep a straight face right now. Yes, I’ve been crying but now I’m laughing, isn’t it nice?”
“It is. But I hate myself for making you suffer”
“Hey, like I said, it wasn’t just about you” she said taking a step closer.
“So Noora told you I like you…” Yousef said slightly blushing
“Is it true?” Sana asked hesitantly
“You really need to ask?”
“I don’t want to make assumptions anymore, I want to hear it from you”
“Okay, I, Yousef Acar, declare that I like you, Sana Bakkoush” he said solemnly
Sana shook her head and rolled her eyes
“Wow, I tell you I like you and that’s your answer? Harsh”
“That was my answer at you being such a dork. My answer at you liking me is this: I like you too, Yousef”
“Really?” he said raising an eyebrow
“You’re going to make me say it, aren’t you?”
He just smiled and shrugged while Sana rolled her eyes again and sighed.
“I, Sana Bakkoush, declare that I like you, Yousef Dork Acar” she said with a smug smile
“Good enough” he said laughing
They both stared at each other while smiling, it was their specialty.
“So…what does this mean?” Sana dared to asked
“What do you want it to mean?”
“Really?” she asked glaring at him
“Okay, I’ll start. I want to be with you Sana, like properly be with you.” He said taking a step closer
“You mean like….”
“I mean like dating”
“Sounds cool” Sana said nodding
“Sounds cool?” he said shaking his head, that girl was going to be the end of him.
“Yeah, I’d like to be with you” Sana said
“You mean like…” he imitated her
“Yes, I mean like dating”
“Sounds cool” he nodded
“Two things though” Sana warned
“First, you have to promise that we won’t make assumptions anymore, that we will talk to each other before reacting. If we don’t do that I don’t think this is going to work”
“I promise and I totally agree. What’s the second one?”
“We can’t tell anybody yet. Not until we know for sure that this…us…is going to work. I don’t want to add more pressure than we already have”
“Okay, okay, I get it. We’ll tell them whenever you’re ready”
Sana nodded, there was still one more thing she wanted to tell him, one thing that may scared him away.
“Yousef…there’s one more thing” she said looking at the floor “I’m not…I’m not like other girls…there’s stuff…there are certain things that I don’t…that I won’t do…I mean…”
“Hey, hey, hey. Sana look at me” Yousef said understanding what she was referring to. “Sana please look at me”
She took a deep breath and looked at his eyes feeling her heart beating faster and faster.
“You don’t have anything to worry about. I’m not here because of that stuff. All I want is to be with you, spend time with you, talk to you. You’ll be the one putting the limits and I’ll respect them, I promise, you have nothing to worry about. I would never do anything that could make you uncomfortable”
“And what if…?” she said but didn’t end the sentence. What if he got tired of her?
“It won’t happen. I promise you.” He said slowly while looking at her eyes making sure she’d understand it.
“Okay” she whispered
Hope you’ve liked it
