I'm going to where my best outfit, I have to wear my green hijab because the moths bit holes in the white one
I'm coming back Nana i'm just spending the day with him. You'll be ok.
If you leave i will get a Jinn if you do, I will die if you leave me I love you Miriam don't leave me
Nana wanted mean to stay and keep me all to her self, Jalil wants me and loves me.
Miriam was promised by Jalil that he was going to come pick her up and take her to this big cinema, and see all these awesome things he described with such love and awe. She always felt loved and special when Jalil came now she got to spend the day with him. Also she would meet his other kids.
Miriam waited hours for her dad to come by the stop they told him to meet her at the day before. Before she left she ran into Nana and she told Miriam she would die if she left. She told her that she would get a jinn and shiver until she dies and that she loves her.
She hopped on a bus to Herat to visit Jalil she thought about what her mother said " ill die if you go" but excitement came over as she thought about seeing all the wonderful things her dad talked about.
Don't turn around Miriam
She went to visit her dad and he never came to the door only one of his wives daughter and his driver he told her he was away for business and didn't know when he would be back but she was determined to wait and she slept outside the gates. The daughter brought her food.
Jalil driver's offered to take Miriam home but she wanted to go see him. She ran in the gates but quickly got scooped up. He drove her home and it was a sad emotional drive. Miriam thought about all the things Nana ever said about Jalil and they were all true.
When they got to Miriam's side of town and got to her home the wind was strong. When they got to the side of the house close to the bench under the tree someone was there. The driver told Miriam not to turn around and when she did there hung Nana.
