“.........there is nothing you can do about it.” His aunt had two children of her own: Ismail and Mariam. Abdullah couldn’t believe it. He looked at him in anger and shock. “What? Does that mean Ismail and Mariam are going to be my step brother and sister?” “Yes. Please try to cooperate.” Abdullah could do nothing to change his father’s mind. They married after a week. They looked odd because Abdullah’s father was fifty years old and his step mother forty-two years old. Everyone secretly laughed at the old couple. Abdullah’s step mother was very sweet and kind to him. When his father had gone to work his step mother made him do almost all the work. Worse than that Ismail and Mariam were very bad at studies and as they were at the same school and class Abdullah’s step mother made sure that he could not study but tutor them.
One day when Abdullah’s step mother was cutting some fruit Abdullah said “Why do you make me do all the work?” “Just shut up and do your work?” said Abdullah’s step mother Abdullah whispered to himself “Why don’t you shut up?” His step mother heard him and said “WHAT? You dare speak to me like this. I will teach you how to speak nicely to elders” with that she took the knife and was about to kill him when Abdullah’s father arrived. He looked suspiciously at both of them and said “What was going on?” His step mother changed her expression from angry to worry and said “Thank god you came. Abdullah was about to do suicide!” Abdullah’s father said “What? Abdullah I am very disappointed in you” “What? No she was about to kill me” Abdullah said. “Just go to your room at once” He went to his room and shouted. “This house is like prison to me. One day Abdullah said to his Father “I hate step mom she is the worst aunt and step mom anyone can ever have and….” “Shut up” he yelled. Since that day his father hated him more and more every day.
