Story board about Laila and three examples following the theme of "Enduring the Unendurable."
Babi and Mammy Fighting
Downstairs, her parents were fighting. Again.
Tariq Moves Away
And here was Tariq now, seated beside Laila on the couch, looking at the ground, hands between his knees. Saying that he was leaving. Not the neighborhood.
Laila Loses Her Parents
Laila dropped the books at her feet. She looked up to the sky. Shielded her eyes with one hand. Then a giant roar. Behind her, a flash of white.
Having to deal with Tariq not being home, Laila has to witness her parents fighting. This raises tension between her parents higher than they already were, and also makes Laila more upset that she has to witness them fighting.
With Laila and Tariq finally getting more romantic together, Laila was finally feeling hopeful for their future. However, Tariq reveals that he has to leave because of his father's health. This upsets Laila as she can't leave with him because of Mammy.
Laila was given the news that they could move away. Laila got hopeful again for her future with Tariq and she starts thinking and planning their future together. However, this all ends when a rocket hits her house and kills both of her parents. She was taken in by Mariam and now is alone. Alone with no one that she cares about with her.
