In 1976 Beirut a terrible civil war started. Ayesha a small girl risks her life to save another.
This is Samar shes 10 and shes deaf.
Bombs started to fall around Ayesha's house. her mum began to pack, her granny and 2 brothers were already running down the street Ayesha followed.
Stop! Who are you and what are you doing here! Are you a spy!
When Ayesha, her granny and her brothers were safe Ayesha looked back and a bomb fell on her house, that was the last time she saw her mum. Latif (her brother) found a small flat.
Latif spotted people up in another window, they were waving to Ayesha and them. They went in the place, where they met Mrs Zainab and Samar.
When Ayesha and her granny were cooking in the small room Mrs Zainab gave them. granny said: "Take care of the chickpeas, don't over cook them." Ayesha could tell Granny wasn't feeling well.
Ayesha knew granny needed medicine but the medicine was across the green line. The green line is an invisible line of bombed out houses. She crossed the green line she knew it was going to be dangerous but Ayesha did it anyway. She was running but a gunmen grabed her arm and shouted to her. After a while an old man came and said they were cruel. And they let go.
