We went different parts of Muscat…the driver was very helpful. I saw so many people from Bangladesh, India and Pakistan that I could not count. I was told that about half the people are from other countries. Oman is a big country at least more than 30 thousand square miles bigger than Bangladesh.
I asked her what she wanted to eat in lunch. She told me to get anything. But when we were passing by Al Azaiba area, she saw the big yellow and red McDonald’s sign and told me to go there. I was kind of surprised that she knew about McDonald’s even in those old days. I don’t know how many McDonald’s are there now but that was the only one I saw when we were in Muscat.
The inside of McDonald’s look almost like any other McDonald’s from USA so I was happy to see the same environment. She told me that she read about McDonald’s in her Marketing book. We ordered the same thing what I normally order in the USA Big Mac, Coke and French Fries. She loved the food and that made me feel good.
I told the driver to go back to the hotel. I also told him to stop in a drug store to buy some headache medicine. She was surprised to know that I had headache as I did not mention having a headache in the whole day. I gave her a mischievous smile and told her…” You wouldn’t understand now. I will explain when we get back to the hotel.” I told her to stay inside of the taxi but she did not listen to me…” She told me that she did not see a drug store before in Muscat”
So I grabbed her with me to the store and she told me,” Are you crazy? What if the Taxi driver runs away with me.?” I said, “Oh, that was the reason, if the taxi driver would run away with you, then you would be his 4th wife..” She tried to hit me. I said,” I would tear open the earth .. I would find you out, I would demolish the mountains to get you back..” She started to laugh..”ahare..amar bir purush..In English, Oh.. My hero..”
It was a big store. I told her to look around…I asked the store employee to buy some condoms because the way the relationship was going I was sure it would happen and I wanted to be ready in that moment. I quickly paid for those and grabbed her to the taxi.
We reached at the Hotel around 7 o’clock in the evening. I was feeling a bit tired and I was sure she was too, especially she was complaining about her high heeled shoes. I told her to have dinner before we go to our room. She agreed with me.
We ordered some chicken and shrimp with some Omani thin bread and some rice. I fed her a small piece of chicken and she reciprocated with a shrimp. We quickly finished our food and went back to our room. The room was cleaned and some chocolates were on top of the pillows as always. It seemed like the hotel authority knew what would make her happy.
After I put on my pajama, she went to the bath room to change. I sat on the bed and leaned against the head board ..turned the TV on, the war was going on. USA was bombing Iraq and parts of Kuwait ..I was sad to see so much damage to both of the country. On the other hand I was also happy for Kuwaiti people that USA was trying to give back their country. Iraq should never have invaded Kuwait as it was a free country.
I remembered how we had to fight with Pakistan in 1971. I was a kid that time. About 8 years old. How we had to go places after place to find safe heaven. It is better be free and live under a tree than captive and live in a palace.
She came out of the bathroom. I turned the TV off. She climbed back to the bed and under the blanket. I grabbed her shoulder and pulled back towards me as much as I could, her half of the body was on top of my body…she told me that she wished if the war was going on forever. I smiled and told her, “Then all the people will be killed and we will be the only two people live.” She did not say anything..
She was holding me tight, I pulled her chin back to me, and her face was about 5 inches away from my face. I leaned back and kissed her lips. She kissed me back. I literally took her whole lips into my mouth. She started to moan in happiness..
She told me to shut the light off and turn the dim light on. I got off from the bed and turned the light off and turned the dim light on…
