Burjuman metro station
Hi! I’m Ansari, and I work for Bank in Dubai. Since I have finished my fifth year in Dubai today, it’s been a great experience living and working in Dubai, especially last year.
I remember, when I was in India doing the same jobs like sales and marketing so there I had to go out and roam around the city for business. I remember I was really self-centered kind of person. I was the kind of person who used to live and enjoy alone. I only enjoy myself when I am alone.
Why am I telling all these irrelevant things which is no way gonna describe my personality Whatever I’m today because I have changed myself a lot.
I remember that day when I was about to get terminated from my company like usual and guess what the reason was too same that’s my performance.
I was late as usual and my boss was dying to throughout his frustration on me. He was all set to fire me and I was really ready to face that situation because I was the most frustrated and tired of doing the same job, so I was more prepared and excited to be out of the job. But it’s not yet done. He really screwed me badly and I too defended myself but like always he had issued and warned that next month would be last in the job.
So finally I wasn’t terminated but I had to cover up my performance because the full month was left to get a salary and I think we all here in Dubai work for the only thing that’s money.
I remember he threatened me to be out of the office until evening and I was really motivated too much to do nothing aggressively.
But anyhow I went out and reached the metro station. Like always it’s a Rush hour, anyway, it’s really difficult to get a seat in the metro these days especially 7 to 10 am and as usual, I didn’t get….. so I had to stand up for a long time.
I remember, I saw a girl and her alluring personality attracted and impressed me a lot. How to describe her amazing description but I can’t forget her deep blue eyes with so much intense and emotions and her straight grew long hair which was really complimenting her graceful looks. She was around 5.6 feet with about 2 inches heel sandals. Her age was around 24 years, I guess because of her innocent and cute smile.
By the way, I’m describing here because I have changed myself so much otherwise I don’t look at any girl, I really enjoy my own company so I don’t intentionally watch or chase the girls.
When I saw her first time, there was something which connected both instantly maybe it’s written in our destiny.
I don’t know because I was not able to see her because of my shy and reserved kind of nature and I was really being uncomfortable while making eye contact with her.
I remember I had to get down at burjuman metro to change another route. I’m not gonna tell you guys where I usually go immediately after office before or afternoon.
Like I said earlier I’m in sales and marketing so I have to go either on appointment or search the business.
I remember after that some awesome and memorable moments I had to get down burjuman and I did the same but suddenly she was disappeared while I was getting down the metro. I tried a lot to find her but unfortunately, I lost her at that time. I remember after that I went where I wanted to go.
After that day my performance got down like never before and my boss started worrying about me because he thought that I’m gonna leave the job.
I remember he used to make me understand the importance of the job in Dubai but I was like not understanding anything. I used to search for her a lot but couldn’t be able to find her. I used to go daily in the same metro station at the same time but never ever got to see her again. I didn’t understand what I was looking for because she had not even recognized me on that day.
She hadn’t even seen me properly so how would I expect something from her, but I started excepting at least her one appearance again so that I could satisfy myself that I saw her again and really wanted to talk with her. She really distracted me from only one eye contact.
I remember it’s Friday and I went out of home in the evening because I was feeling bored in the room since morning, after all, Friday is a holiday in Dubai.
I was in the metro and this time metro was really not crowded and I could easily see the people in another department. I remember was going somewhere else and suddenly say her.
She was dressed up differently and was alone, maybe she’s going to party or somewhere else, this time I wanted to talk to her but I was not able to even see her properly. She didn’t even notice or maybe she had noticed me.
I decided to see at least her address so that I can talk to her sometime later, I was really afraid of doing that because first time in my life I was doing that I was chasing a girl, I don’t know how I got the guts but I had done that.
I remember she got down one metro station and went to one hotel and didn’t come back for a long time. I had waited a lot at that hotel but I didn’t see her again on that day.
I remember I was really happy at that time because at least I saw her and got to know her address. I started coming to that hotel daily but never found her again.
One day I was very tired and coming back to home from Sharjah in the evening, I again saw her in a different look. This time she was just opposite to me and I was again not able to make eye contact with her but I was really happy to see her again and instantly I was charged and became fresh because of her fresh fragrance.
Since it’s evening so obviously the metro was crowded fully and It’s again a Rush hour as usual. Both were standing and looking for a seat and both needed a seat.
I can’t forget her attractive personality because of her dressed up as if she was going to the party, I guess.
Suddenly one seat was vacated and since I was very much tired so I thought to sit but as soon as I reached there she had sit on that seat but I was happy because I could see her while standing. But she offered me that seat with a smile gesture and whispered to me that “you’re looking tired and you need this seat,” she said to me. “No…. it’s okay, you sit,” I replied even though I was much needed that seat.
I remember after a few minutes one more seat was unoccupied and as soon as that happened she instantly captured that seat and said “now you don’t need to do any formality,” she said. “I didn’t get it,” I replied because I couldn’t understand what she was trying to say to me. “I mean, come and have seat because I already have my seat so better sit otherwise someone would have this seat,” when she made me understand I will instantly be seated. “Thanks ……” I said to her. Now I had a reason to talk with her because she was sitting just next to me and I was still not making eye contact.
I remember whenever I was looking at her, I was just smiling as a positive respectful gesture, and she too was doing the same.
“Where do you work,” she asked me while smiling. “I work for a Bank,” I replied only what she asked me, I couldn’t even ask her name or introduced mine.
“Great….. so much heat outside, how do you manage,” she said to me while showing concern about the weather of Dubai. “I’m used to of this weather, it’s been 4 years completed in Dubai now.
While talking to her I gotta confidence and asked her name confidently. “My name is Jasmine, and what’s yours….” She introduced her name and asked mine.
I remember I introduced my name too. We had hardly started talking to each other suddenly she said “I gotta get down next station, so nice to meet you, see you later hopefully,” she replied and started getting down.
“You are saying hopefully, do I need to expect another meeting,” I didn’t hesitate to ask to meet her again, but she didn’t really except smiling back on my words. I didn’t wanna wait again and hustle around the metro station and city to see or find her so I immediately got down the metro and followed her. “Why are you following me,” she said to me while smiling.
“I don’t know but I don’t wanna do same mistakes,” I replied and made her confused. “What kind of mistakes you’re talking about,” she asked me aggressively and confusingly. “Nothing….. if I wanna see you, where I need to find you and how,” I told her again. “Don’t follow me, you’ll regret yourself,” when she replied, now I was shocked and confused from her statement.
I didn’t ask anything more because I was scared whatever she said to me, suddenly “what happened,” she asked loudly from far. “Nothing…… I said again. I remember after that she gave me her number and warned me not to contact constantly because she’s not gonna pick or entertain my calls, but I was really happy because at least I had her contact number but at the same time afraid of something, it’s Dubai and if a girl complains against you then it’s bad and painful, so I thought to maintain distance from her.
I remember when she shared her number, I immediately rang the number in front of her just to check whether the number is correct or not. After that day I used to call her and try to meet her but she never used to entertain me.
I remember after so much effort, she finally was convinced to meet me, she was knowing my feelings, emotions, and attraction towards her, and that’s the only reason she didn’t wanna meet me and take the matter far. But I was not understanding the exact reason because when I used to meet or call her she always used to talk nicely but always used to warn me that “please stay away from me, it’s not good for you, why are you wasting your time and energy, don’t spoil your career here,” she always makes me understand.
I remember that day when she finally agreed to meet me it’s Sunday and Eid holiday for five days so she agreed to meet me.
When I met at the same time I expressed my feelings and excitement whenever I wanna meet her. “You whenever I think of you, I wanna meet with you and I’m so glad that you are here with me,” I said to her, I really didn’t understand how she was listening to my expression and tolerating my excitement, first time after so many days saw changes in her, she was entraining me and my feelings. “Are you crazy or what, from where you bring this much emotional words,” while laughing at me she said.
“These are my feelings, and it’s coming by heart, trust me,” I again told her.
“Why would I trust you, I hardly know you just from few days,” she replied back to me. “You know, I love you and I can do anything for you, just trust me once,” I finally purposed her because I couldn’t stop myself.” just think once again, because you don’t know about me,” she said. “I don’t wanna know much about you, I know your name that’s enough for me,” as soon as I said that her face became red as if she’s angry on me.
“You don’t know anything about me, I am married…….” When she told me this I was really shocked and speechless because I was really nothing knowing about her, I thought, she’s joking so I said, “are you kidding me, you’re around 24-25 years old, I guess you’re a student,” I said to her while laughing. “I told you before that you don’t know about me and also said to you that don’t waste your time and energy, your life would be destroyed, so please for-god sake, stay away from me,” while saying this she really turned her into a red face.
I remember after that I was really shocked how’s possible but when she showed her passport and visa then my heart got broken immediately and I was feeling like I lost my life. Now I was not able to think what to do, I was crying inside my heart.
She told me that she was gotten married one year ago and her husband was working in Dubai and it’s arranged marriage, after few months of their marriage, her husband brought her here and they started living but just a few days she got to know that her husband had an extramarital affair and that girl is from different country, and he used to go out of Dubai for business trip, finally her husband decided to divorce her and now he has settled in different country with that girl.
I was really shocked speechlessly and unhappy at the same time because of her life. It’s really painful and she was alone going through that situation, that’s why she always used to ignore me and avoid me so that I should not get into any trouble.
I remember, while on the one side I was too feeling like abounded and left out, I was not knowing what to do because I know my family, they would never gonna accept her. I too was in a dubious situation because I was thinking her to be unmarried. On the other side, her husband abounded her and left her dying in Dubai.
Now I got to know her pain because I too was going through the same situation. I remember after that I too started maintaining distance with her and went on an emergency vacation to my home. I was not able to take a decision or not even thinking to talk about her with my family, so I tried to forget her. I remember I was looking upset and not enjoying my vacation. When my family asked me the reason I wasn’t in a situation to disclose that I love someone and that one is married and divorcée too. I was thinking one more thing about her that’s if she is any fraud or someone who trapped the person in her love affair because it’s common in big countries. And because of that I started not taking much tension about her. I tried to forget her but her alluring personality and her attractive, killer smile were not letting her forget.
I remember those days my family was looking girls for my marriage and I was not really happy about that because I didn’t wanna marry someone else. It’s really true love coming from my heart for her, and I was knowing that it’s not gonna easy to forget her completely.
I remember during my vacation, one of my elder cousin brothers got married to a widow girl, when he brought her wife, his family members really welcomed her with lots of love and grace. When he did that I got something inside me to tell my family about her, I didn’t think much about anything because I was in love with her and wanted to see her in my life happily.
I had never talked with to her marry her but if it’s true love she’ll definitely accept my marriage proposal. I was not able to talk with my family because I really not knowing how to talk about her, so just for motivation I went to my cousin’s brother who had recently married that widow girl.
“Bro……….. I just need your help, can get me out of this situation,” I asked help.
“Tell me, what do you wanna know from me, I married a widow that’s why,” he said.
“No…… I mean, it’s perfectly fine you married a widow, my concern is different,” I replied.
“What?” He asked again. “I actually love someone who is married and divorcee too, I can’t live without her and can’t see her dying in this younger stage of life,” I finally explained everything to him. “So What’s wrong in it, you love her so go get her,” he immediately responded but my concern was something else.
“I don’t know how to talk to my parents if they are not gonna agree on it then what would I do,” I cleared my exact problem. “So what if they don’t agree if you really and truly love her then they will accept, and first of all you have to convince yourself then you can convince others,” he clearly said to me to follow the heart.
“But what about her, if she doesn’t accept my marriage proposal,” I again asked. “Don’t think too much and don’t waste your time here thinking unrealistic and unnecessary things, just talk with your parents and go get her immediately otherwise you’ll regret yourself in your whole life,” he really inspired me and motivated to do and not to think much.
I remember immediately at that moment I went to my parents and explained everything and guess what they were really happy for me that I could make my own decision of getting married and they too told me that I should not think much about anyone, just do whatever is best for my life.
I was really wrong, thinking about my family that they belong to old culture and tradition so they might have issues and problems with my decision but they were so supportive that they not only encouraged me to do so but also arranged everything to do so.
I remember after that I didn’t waste my time and immediately came to Dubai. It’s almost ten days of vacation and during that, I hadn’t talked with her.
I remember after that when I came to Dubai, I tried to call her a lot when I landed in Dubai, but her phone number was not reachable, I started trying a lot but I couldn’t able to connect with her.
Since I didn’t have her address but wherever she used to go, I went there and asked about her, I couldn’t find her anywhere. I was now being depressed and I was roaming around the city to just have to look for her. I remember it’s more than ten days gone since my landing in Dubai and I wasn’t able to get even her address.
I went to divorce court too just to know anything about her because she had told me that she’s divorced in the Dubai court. I visited so many times the same place just to ensure that she would come there but she couldn’t.
Even though I was in Dubai and my boss was calling me again and again to join the duty but I was really not caring about my job, career and all. After ten days, I decided to join the duty because I didn’t have another option otherwise I might be lost the job, and as usual same office drama got started and this time I didn’t really care about anything.
It’s the same Rush hour, as usual, I got down from the same metro station and was really feeling weak and upset. I suddenly had seen someone as soon as I saw that one my face color instantly changed, I really became charged immediately, it’s she who was looking at me constantly and I wasn’t even interested to look at anyone else in the metro.
When I saw her I started smiling and she too but in a different way. She was in another coach of metro and I was indifferent, both immediately got down in the next station and started walking through the crowded passengers. It’s a really incredible crowd because of the evening time. Somehow we reached out to each other, we were close enough to hug each other and I didn’t even think of anything or anyone in the crowded metro station,
I just hugged her and started crying. It’s an emotional moment for me and for her too because she also had started feeling the same as me but since she’s a girl, she had held herself and her emotions. “Where were you these days, do you have any idea, how much I struggle to see you,
I really missed you a lot,” while saying these I swiped my eyes and tears. “Are you crying, I’m so sorry, I too missed you and wanted to tell you my feelings for you,” she replied. I remember I am not gonna forget that moment of my life. That’s the most memorable and remarkable moment of our life.
I didn’t waste my time on anything. “Marry me, I don’t care about anyone or anything, just wanna see you in my life as a better half and I promise me I’ll never leave you for anyone,” I purposed her for marriage.
“Let’s discuss somewhere else while sitting, this’s not the right place, people are looking at us,” she replied. “No…… just say yes….” I asked again. “Ok…… yes……. Now let’s go somewhere,” she finally agreed and accepted to marry me.
