TO BE PUBLISHED THIS OCTOBER.

The sun was hot on my face and on my back that it caused me to wake in a daze.

I found myself lying on the grass by a lake side. I was completely taken aback.

What was I doing here? I looked around to fathom where I was. It looked like the middle of Central park. But what was I doing here? My mind was still hazy. The blood vessels were beginning to throb against my skull.

I tried to remember what had happened the other night. I recalled that I had a fight with Shehzad.

Oh.

Everything came flooding back to my mind. I was so mentally unstable the previous night that I was wandering like a drunkard—completely striped away from all logic and my mind was drowning in my emotions.

I realized that my hair was disheveled and my dupatta was nowhere to be seen. The bright sun rays stung my eyes. I couldn't believe that I was alive because it is very cold during the night.

I looked at myself in the water's reflection. My eyes--bloodshot, red and swollen and my face was pale and lifeless. I was looking the same way when I heard about my family's accident.

I tried to compose myself.

Taking the cold water from the lake, I splashed it on my face—it rejuvenated my senses.

I felt so naked at the chest without my dupatta. Bringing my knees to my chest—I wrapped my arms around my knees and putting my chin on them, I stared at my feet—thankfully I was still wearing my house slippers. I gathered my wits and began to think things through.

I'm so surprised that I lasted through the night. Last night was the worst time of my life. I flung into such deep despair that was beyond my reckoning. I thought that my life was about to end—one way or the other. But if I am alive right now, then that means that my life's purpose isn't over yet.

But last night I acted as if my life had come to an end. I was hurt not only by Shehzad's words, but he hurt my heart too—although I harbor no feelings for him.

Why am I so hurt? Why is my heart hurting so much?

The only thing that I felt toward him was my sense of duty and devotion and loyalty as a wife. That's why I asked for a divorce without thinking—which wasn't right.

I was completely overwhelmed. I couldn't think straight. I appointed myself blameworthy for everything that happened to me thus far.

I became convinced so badly that I would die—but I didn't. I blamed myself for all my misfortune. But I remembered one of the verses of the Qur'an that stated;

....bad women a

that person had put his tracksuit jacket on my back.

"This is all that I can offer for help since I don't know you or your circumstances—but let me tell you something else, " he said and grabbed my shoulders to help me stand on my feet. Normally, at a stranger's random touch, I shrink away but I wasn't in my right mind at the moment.

"Whenever you feel like crying, then cry to your heart's content and use this, " he said raising my chin and placed something at the palm of my hand. I didn't look at it since I was in the full capture of his eyes. I had never seen such welcoming and friendly eyes.

"But once you're done crying—smile. You will feel better and look beautiful and don't let yourself feel down again. Face everything head on and Keep your head held high." He counseled with a big grin.

"Here you go."

He placed a lollipop in my palm.

"Cheer up, kiddo." He gave me a childish look.

"Well, I guess I'll be seeing you later." He claimed and began to run back to the jogging track.

I wanted to stop him. But my voice didn't come out. I wanted to ask him his name. His words were so full of wisdom and comfort, yet he didn't look any older than me.

He saved me from falling into a chasm that would have been impossible for me to climb back to. I opened the palm of my hand and in it, was a handkerchief, and in it was a thousand dollar bill. The handkerchief had the initials.
