Teenage Dream 9

Hope you guys like this one! I wrote this a few months ago oo ma9adig how cheesy I am when writing. ilmushkila I'm really not in real life! Quite the opposite actually lol, anyways feedback is always appreciated! thank you x


The next few days were pure bliss. I got really closer with Bader if it’s even possible. We spent most of our time together because our dads golfed a lot and our mothers and Sara shopped most of the time. I would usually be with them its just I wanted to devote this trip on living, going places I’ve never been to, instead of going through department store to department store with legs that have seen much better days. So Bader and I decided to go around London without planning anything. Just do whatever comes to mind.

But he’s sick. I mean he had a really sore throat and a cold on the first two days but he does look much better; the only thing wrong with him is that he lost his voice, not entirely though which means that I get to hear him talk in a deep, husky voice. I’m not complaining. He sometimes has to repeat things twice for me to actually concentrate on the conversation… thank you god…

Currently, I am screaming my head off, jumping off a bridge, hugging Bader. Confused? Let me rewind just a few hours. It is 1:00 p.m and we are eating breakfast at this cheap looking diner in one of the many tiny streets in London.

“So, what do you want to do today?”

“I don’t know..”

We sat there in silence awkwardly looking at each other.

“So, this is fun..”


We sat there for a few more seconds..

“Oh I know what you are doing..”


“You’re doing that defeated look of yours so I can agree to your first idea!”

“Ugh, what? No, wait, no.. okay maybe”


“COME ON BADER! You spent most of the first night here explaining to our parents how we’re supposed to live!”

“Yes, LIVE! Not die!!”

“It’s bungee jumping Bader, it’s not like I’m ramming myself on walls repeatedly! And stop being selfish! Sara told me you did it before..”

“I did.”

“Why wont you let me do it?”

“I don’t want you to get hurt”

The way he said it would put Johnny Depp to shame… I involuntarily blushed.

“I can take care of myself Bader..”

“Believe me, I know you can”

“Haha so that settles it! Bungee jumping at 3! We’ll go to the music store down the street until then”

I got up and waited outside as he paid for our breakfast. A guy, maybe in his early 20’s, walked towards me with a smile on his face.


My knee’s really weakened at the sound of his deep, British accent.


How are you?”

“I’m very well thank you, and you?”

“Ah, you know, good”

“Uh, that’s good.. Im sorry but do I know you?”

“No, but a beautiful girl like you shouldn’t be standing outside alone on a day like this..”

“A day like this?”

“Oh you know, beautiful and warm..? haha sorry I just wanted an excuse to talk to you..”

Gleam in this eye, flirtatious look. Shit, he’s flirting with me. Don’t blush. Don’t blush. Don’t blush. Shit, I blushed.

“Actually, I’m not alone. My friend is inside and I’m just waiting for him”



He asked me about where I’m from and about my vacation, places I visited during my stay and he talked about what he does, his family and stuff. After a few minutes, Bader walked out and looked at me with a smile, but it faded when he saw the guy.

“Minu hatha?”

“Bader this is.. sorry I didn’t catch your name.”

“Steven, my name’s Steven”

“My name’s Mezna and this is Bader, my best friend”

“Nice to meet you”

“Yeah, same, listen sorry man but we gotta go..”

“How bout you go ahead and Ill come in a few minutes..”

He looked at me for the longest time but soon nodded his head and walked away.

“Are you sure you’re not together?”

“Yeah, he’s just a friend why?”

“It’s just the way he looks at you and the way he eyed me just now..”

“He’s protecting me”

“Protection huh? He was ready to rip my head off”

“Hahaha that’s Bader for ya… Well I gotta go..”

“Yeah, before he get’s a heart spasm”

“Haha it was nice meeting you Steven”

“You too Mezna, good luck on everything”

“Thank you, bye!”


I walked away towards the music shop.

“Wait, Mezna!”

I turned around to see Steven jogging towards me.

“I’m not trying to get to you or anything but here’s my number, we’ll do something as friends I promise. Bring Bader if you want, we’ll hang out”

“Haha sure, see you Steven!”

I waved at him and walked into the store and saw Bader fidgeting in front of the guitars.



He smiled but looked away towards the guitar.

“You know.. to make you feel any better. I think he’s gay and he doesn’t even know it yet..”

“What makes you say that?”

“He checked you out when you walked away,” I cracked a smile and he hung his head back and laughed the loudest laugh anyone can ever hear.


He gave me a hug AND a noogie. Ass.

We looked at the guitars and the pianos until it was about 3:30 when we decided to go to the bridge where we were bungee jumping. The bridge was sort of empty excluding a few men adjusting the ropes and a couple of women sitting on the curb. The instructor told us what to do and got us all ready for the jump.

“So first time love?”

“First time for me but he’s been”

“Well it’s a good thing you’re gonna do this with your husband”

“He’s not m-“

“YES, yes it is”

I raised my eyebrows at him and he just shrugged. The instructor walked to the side of the bridge to secure the harness, so I ferociously whispered.

“What are you doing?”

“Who cares it’s not like we’ll see him again and frankly I’m sick of correcting everyone who thinks we’re together so we might as well”

The instructor led us towards the edge of the bridge and made us stand facing each other. I look deep into his soft, brown eyes and I swear I saw them shine brighter when he locked them with mine. He smiled slightly before turning his head towards the instructor who was telling us last minute information. I tried my best to follow but I couldn’t stop staring at his face. He smelt like cigarettes. This is new. I didn’t know he smoked, how the fuck did I not know? He looked back at me and my knees weakened when I caught his eyes. Fuck me. Get yourself together woman. Shit. I’m going crazy. What’s happening? My eyes widened a little bit. He looked at me and chuckled and I couldn’t help but blush that widen his smile. Yes, Bader. Thank you for making my stomach flip and my knees weak. Really. He kissed my forehead lightly and I closed my eyes taking in the moment.

"Are you ready to fall?"

He asked thinking it was just another simple question but with all its simplicity, it held so much more meaning to it than he thought.


"We're in this together"

He mouthed counting down numbers. When he got to one, his arms tightened around me and we jumped, just like that. It was exhilarating. My stomach dropped with the fall. He screamed so loudly, half laughing half scared out of his wits. I laughed my ass off at him. He held me so tightly I thought I was going to suffocate. I put my head in the crook of his neck anticipating the moment we dunked in the warm water. I took his smell in and smiled despite how much I’m against whatever the fuck this feeling is.

We swung, upside down, until we came to full stop. Suddenly, the rope was cut and we were completely in the calming river. We swam to the edge and Bader helped me up. We silently grabbed our coats and put them on to avoid hypothermia. We walked for god knows how long along the river in complete silence. It was perfect. I couldn’t help but want to bring up the smoking thing. When did he start? Why did he start? Most of all, why didn’t he tell me? So right until we reached the end of the small path, I faced him in all seriousness and stated.

"You smoke"

"Um what?"

"You smoke"


"When'd you start? Before we became close?"



"Okay? I thought you'd freak out or something"

"I mean, I don't condone smoking but I won't stop you from doing what you want"

"Why do you look sad?"

"I just don’t understand why you didn't tell me"

"I wanted to quit. So many times. For you. I wanted to quit so when I'd tell you, you'd be proud of me. So you wouldn’t hate me for smoking"

No wait stop right there. There is nothing in this entire world that you can do that can make me hate you in the slightest. I love you more than words can express. You’re my best friend Bader, 9adigni smoking won’t change that. I mean if you move away without telling me then yes but this…. This doesn’t even come close”

The smile on his face would’ve made the straightest man in the universes knees go weak. I blushed despite myself but at that moment I didn’t care. Just as he was going to tell me something, my phone ferociously vibrated against my leg.



“MAMA! Il7imdillah zain, shlonkum intaw?”

“Il7imdillah zaineeeeen! Wainich manshoofich intay oo Bader! 7aram 3alaikum imsafreeeen ma3a ba3ath may9eeer chithi!”

“Shinsawi ba3ad mama kilma itgooloon bitghayroon ilplan itridoon 3ala shopping oo golf hahaha”

“9aja 7abeebti shinsawi ba3ad hatha ily nigdar nit7amala mu intay oo Bader kil 3ashir thuwaani ib mukan thani”

“Hahaha hathi wanasatna”

“Eee walla kaifkum ba3ad shasawifeekum thnainatkum raskum akbar min il thani”

“7aram 3alaich!!”

“Hatha il9ijjj! Inzain sim3ay ilyoum kilna ib nit3asha ib ilma63am ily khaltich gaylatlina 3ana isa3a 7. Abeech intay oo Bader itkoonoon minakk!”

“Inshallah walay himich”

“I love you 7abeebti oo salmay 3ala Bader”

“Inshallah yo9al! Love you too”

I closed the phone and told Bader the plan. We decided to go back to the hotel to get ready for dinner even though it was only 4:30. The cab ride was completely silent. Halfway through the ride, rain started splattering on the windows. I rested my head on Bader’s shoulder; I closed my eyes and took everything in. The soft classical music playing on the radio, the cab driver’s random commentary about the people in the street, the magical sound of the rain attacking the windows. I felt Bader snake his arms around my torso and I guess he thought I was asleep. Just as I was going to hint that I was awake, I heard the cab driver clear his throat and start talking to Bader.

“Fine woman you got there”

“Excuse me?”

“Your little lady, she’s beautiful”

“Yes, yes she is”

“You in love chap”

“Nah, just transfixed”

“Naw mate, I know love when I see it”

I felt Bader chuckle and he just wrapped his arms tightly around me. It was quiet for a while but next thing I knew Bader was shaking up.

“What’s going on?”

“You slept halfway through the ride”


Bader paid the driver and we went into our hotel and into the elevator.

“What time is it?”

“Almost 5:30”


“Yeahhh, it was a long ride”

“Okay so we meet at the lobby by 6:45ish?”

“Yeah sure”

I walked into my hotel room and slowly closed the door. You know that scene in movies where the girl stands with her back to the door smiling like an idiot holding stomach like butterflies are molesting her insides? That was me at that moment. I felt like every inch of me was levitating, metaphorically of course. I took a long hot shower and started getting ready for dinner. I put on some music from my laptop to help set the mood. I stood in front of my cloest for god knows how long before deciding on wearing this lace dress I had for a while. I was fell in love with it immediately because its knee length with long sleeves but it's taken me a while to actually wear it because it is completely see through. I got a short tube dress that fit perfectly with it yet I couldn’t find the right occasion to wear it in until now. I laid my dress on my bed and just as I started to do my hair, I heard a soft knock on my door. I rushed to see who it was before realizing I was only in a towel.

“Um, who is it?”

“It’s Bader”

“Oh hey, sorry I can’t open the door, not really decent”

“No it’s fine, I just wanted to see how long you’re going be”

“It’s 6:45 already??”

“No no it’s only 6 I just finished way too early”

“I’m going to be a while but you can go it’s okay”

“No no I can wait”

“No I’m serious. I’ll be fine! Go go!”

“Mazoon are you sure?”


“Alright see you in a few!”

“Bye bye!”

I spent the next half hour applying my make up and curling my long, brown hair. I just started putting my skintight tube dress and the lace dress before hearing the familiar ringing from my laptop. I looked at it to see that Kady was calling me. I then realized how much I missed my retarded friend so I accepted way too excitedly.


“Whoa woman way to blow my speakers”

“Hahahah I’m sorry! I MISS YOU!”

“I MISS YOU SO MUCH MORE! Guess who’s with me?”


Next thing I knew Tala popped up from behind Kady.


“I came to surprise you guys! Nisait intay ib landan!”

“Bess ra7 ashoofich 9a7??”


“Inzain Mazoon shaghlay il video manshooofich”

“Oh ee nisait hahaa”

I put on the video thing and as soon as it worked both of their jaws dropped.

“Oh. My. God.”


“Who the HELL are you trying to kill??”


“shit you scared me hahah THANK YOU SO MUCH!”

“Where are you going?”

“Dinner with the family”

“The family only?”

“Sara and Bader’s family as well”


“What’s with that ‘ahh’? I don’t like the sound of that woman speak!”

“At first I thought you were going to make the British men go crazy over you but now..”

“What now?”


“Oh you guys just shut up”


“Hahah walla klab no I’m not!”

“Yes yes you are!”



“Oh for the lov-“

Just then my phone started to ring and speak of the devil.

“You guys chub it’s him!”


I rolled my eyes and muted them.


“Mazoona it’s almost 7 wainich?”

“Shit got lost track of time, al7een yayaaa”

“Damn gotta call waiting yalla lat2akhirain oo 3ala shani be safe”


I smiled in spite of myself, I knew my friends could hear and see me but I couldn’t help it. I unmuted them thinking that they would’ve been screaming their asses off yet they just sat there smiling like idiots.


“Oh nothing”

“You guys, he’s like an older brother”

“You don’t see me blush when I talk to my brother”

“…I gotta go you guys”

“We’ll talk to you soon beautiful!!”



I smiled as I shut the laptop. I quickly grabbed my heels and huge fur coat and ran out the door. 6:53.

Teenage Dream 8


I am so so so sorry for not posting anything these past months! I finally found the folder! I just have to rewrite a few pages again :') you guys have no clue how awesome it feels to be back! Anyways I wanted to ask your suggestions about the title, stick to Teenage Dream or change it to Teenage Crime? and now onto the new chapter:D


Two morning’s later, we met each other in the airport at 10 p.m. Being an only child traveling was never THAT fun because I had no one my age with me. Now? My best friends are with me.. Well half of them! I tried convincing Kady the night before but she didn’t budge; one I hated the fact that I was leaving her here alone and second she wasn’t gonna be here at my birthday which sucked.

When I was younger, the day before my birthday, someone we were close to passes away. It was my grandfather on my 7th, my mom’s best friend on my 10th, my dad’s aunt on my 12th and so on. So I learned to never appreciate it. Birthdays suck and ever since the last two years my friends tried to make my birthdays unforgettable which they amazingly did. I don’t know it felt weird not having Kady around.

When we got in the plane, we all started to sit in our assigned seats. My parents together, behind them were Sara’s parents and two rows behind Bader and Sara sat AND I was just three rows behind them sitting with one of the most beautiful British man I have ever seen. He sat in the aisle seat and my seat was the window so the situation was a wee bit awkward.

“Hey, im sorry but..”

“Is that your seat?”


“Oh im sorry” He gave me a sweet smile and got up to make it easier for me to go in.

“Its okay, awe thank you”

“Its no problem”

After sitting down and getting myself comfortable, I noticed the dude was trying to hold in his laughter in. I cocked my eyebrow at him and he nodded his heard towards the stewardess standing right in front of us. It took me a while but I finally saw it, her shirt was ridden up so high I swear her underwear KILA yibayin. I looked at the guy and we started laughing our asses off. Every time we calm down, one of remembers and laughs again which causes the other person to laugh. Finally after a short while, we pulled ourselves together, introduced ourselves (isma Jesse) and started small talking.

“Are you going to London alone?”

“No, I’m with my family and friends... speaking of..” I pointed at Bader who was getting up from his seat with his back to the aisle. That was stupid move because as he walked back he hit the stewardess who dropped the food in her hands. He kept apologizing and helped her pick up the food frantically, obviously freaking out. I laughed at his nervous state.

“I’m guessing he’s one of your friends?”

“Haha proud to say he is” He laughed and looked at Bader who was now coming towards us with a freaked out face.

“Im glad my suffering amuses you”

“Haha you love me”

“Sure I do”

“What are you doing back here?”

“What? Can’t a grown man visit his best friend?”

“A grown man would never say best friend and darling it’s been 20 minutes since the plane has taken off”

Jesse laughed at our bickering.

“Oh, Bader Jesse, Jesse Bader”

They said their hellos and started talking about stupid business crap so I blocked them out. Somehow I found myself staring at Bader. I stared at the way his lips moves when he speaks and how when he laughs his eyes wrinkle in the sides. The way when he speaks with a person, he’s giving them their undivided attention. The way he likes to move his hands or puts one of his hands on his chest when he says something he’s really passionate about.

“Take a picture it’ll last longer”

“Asshole haha tana7t”

He was about to say something when the stewardess came behind him and asked him to take his seat because the seat belt sign was on which he did. After seeing that Bader was in his seat Jesse turned to me and told me something that really caught me off guard.

“Are you guys together?”


“You’re in love with him, I mean you look like you are” he told me in a matter to fact voice.

“Oh no no no no no no no no.. Noo haha no no no uhh no?”

“So I’m guessing no?”

“No, wait no I mean yeah.. I…”


“No, hes my best friend. I love him but I’m not in love with him”

“Why don’t you look certain saying that?”

“He’s my best friend”

“That doesn’t mean you cant fall in love with him”

“I… I’m not”


“My religion and that fact that it’s Bader”

“You never know..”

We both sat there quietly; me lost in my own thoughts him laughing at me serious face.

“So wanna change the subject?”

“Haha yes please”

We talked for hours. He’s 24, an architect but aspiring musician. Loves to read and mountain climb; has a girlfriend back in London who’s waiting for him to finish work so they can travel the world together. All in all, he was a pretty rad guy. It was around one when my eyes started getting droopy so Jesse told me to sleep. Yet I was always the kind of person who doesn’t sleep on planes so I just rested my head on the window with my eyes closed. I heard someone come next to me, I was gonna open my eyes when I heard Bader’s voice.

“Is she asleep?”

“Yeah man she is”

Then I heard nothing, I thought he left but I heard Jesse clear his throat and say, “dude you’re whipped

“Nahh it isn’t that bad”


“Haha shut up”

“Are you gonna do anything about it?”


“Why not?”

“Too soon I guess”

HAHAHAHA I had no clue what they were saying and for some reason that is hilriouuuus. I felt someone sit on the floor in front of us (we had a lot of space) and I peeked through one eye and it was Bader. I accidently smiled WHICH got me caught. Bader laughed, got up, kissed my forehead and started tickling me lama gal bess. I diiieeedddddd!!! I tired my best not to laugh out loud so the other passengers wouldn’t wake up but I couldn’t help it! After the torture was finally done, I punched Bader.

“Dude, what the hell was that?”


“I hate yooouu :)”


I just shook my head and blushed a little at his stare.

“So Jesse, you sing?”

“Oh yeah man, mostly alternative..”

“You know Mezna can sing..”

“Shut itttt Bader!!”

“You can sing?”

“A little bit, not really good though..”

“She’s being modest, she’s amazing”

“What about you? Your voice is incredible!”

“You can both sing?.. I think its safe to say that I have never met anyone like you both…”

We laughed and talked about music and how much Bader and I loved it and Jesse talked about some shows he’s done in the past. Before we know it the seatbelt sign was on and Bader had to go back to his seat. We sat there in silence as the plane went down. He got up took his bag down and handed me mine.

“You know you and Bader should come to one of my shows, we have one next week. I want you guys to meet Anna.. I know she’ll love you guys”

“Yeah for sure, you have my number, text me the date and time.. We’ll be there”

He gave me a hug and waved at Bader who was standing 20 feet away with the family and left. I walked over to the family.

“Ya7laila he invited us to one of his shows..”

“Ohhh ohhh Meznaaaa’s in love”

I stared at Bader with the straightest face. He cleared his throat and I just punched him in the arm and walked towards our parents who were all laughing.
