She knew that she should not have told a lie. Although Saliha knew that, she did lie to Zack. All she was doing was for the sake of her friend, Yana and for their friendship. Zack is a good-looking man, with a nice hair groom, dark shining eyes, and a lovely smile. He is looking for a suitable girl to be his special friend, instead to be more than a special one. The one who can share happiness and sadness together, spend a warm moment, caring, and sincere loving him. However, nobody knows about this.
Saliha fall in love with Zack for a long time, since the first time she saw him in the campus cafeteria. Herself does not understand why she must felt like that. Everytime she saw him, her heart beat will increase without no reason. However, she just kept her feelings towards him as secret for a long time. This is because she thought she is not suitable for Zack.
But she does not know Zack has already fall in love with her. Same with her, Zack had the feeling since they met accidentally at the campus cafeteria. For him, Saliha is an innocent looking girl, yet she is quite active in co-curriculum and one of the best students in her course. In addition, Saliha is also a decent young girl. Moreover, they are classmates.
But what make Saliha kept her feelings is because of her roommate and also her classmate, Yana . Yana is a friend to Saliha since they were in the first year. It means, they have been friends for three years. In three years, they have been through many sweet things together, share happiness and sadness, share laughs and tears, moreover they just like sisters and they needs each other more than anything. Yana also has feelings for Zack. Saliha think Yana is more suitable for Zack better than her because of the charming face and modern appearance. Furthermore, she does not want to sacrifice their friendship because of a man. Therefore, she kept her feelings as a secret.
One day, Zack asked her to have a lunch with him. It is hard to say no to a man she really admired and this is like a golden opportunity for her to have a moment with him. They walked together. Zack choose a quite hidden table at the corner of the cafeteria. Then, he pleased Saliha to sit and he went to buy foods for both of them. They started eating. Silent. No conversation happened between them. Both of them tried to start the conversation but have no guts. Suddenly, Zack opened his mouth within looked into Saliha eyes. Saliha felt the staring went into her heart. Zack asked her to be his soul mate, he claimed he wanted this moment to happen for a long time ago but only have the guts to express it now.
Saliha was so shocked. She does not know what to say. She cannot hold her tears. She never expected this would happen. At this moment, Saliha can only think about Yana who always talked about how cool Zack is, how beautiful Zackâ€™s hair is and a lot of other compliments. Without looking to Zack, Saliha told him that she has no feelings for him. Her heart is for another man. In addition, they are not suit to be together. She apologies
because had to let him down and really appreciate for invited her for lunch. She stands and went away without looking back.
She had to do so for the name of friendship. She really loved this friendship and would not let anything destroy it although she felt hurt very much. She smiles, but in her smiles full of sadness. She never told Yana about the incident happened between her and Zack. But Yana smelled fishy about Saliha nowadays. She looked really uncomfortable when Zack stared at her and more often isolated herself in her room. Yana has no idea on what going on but she knew something big had happened in Saliha life. She wanted to ask Saliha but from her face she knew Saliha would not share anything with her because if she has a problem, she would share it with her with no doubt. She wanted to wait until Salihaâ€™s heart opened to tell her. But until now, Saliha still kept it as a secret and at the end, Yana asked Zack himself and was very shocked to know that Saliha had let Zack down.
At home, Yana waited for Saliha in Salihaâ€™s room. As she waits, she looked around and found a book. She opened it. First, she found a picture of them together. Saliha wrote many sweet memories she had with Yana . Next, as she opened another page, she saw a picture of Zack. On that page, Saliha wrote everything about Zack, as her dream man. Yana was very shocked reading it but things got worse when she read more.
Yana discovered that she is the reason why Saliha said no to Zack, her dream man. Saliha was just protecting their friendship and Yana felt sorry for her.
When Saliha got back, she saw Yana cried in her room while reading her diary. They had a heart-to-heart talk. Yana said that it is alright for Saliha to be together with Zack because Saliha is the girl Zack chose and there is nothing Yana could do about it. Yana explained what happened to Zack. Yana knew she must play her roles in this situation. She must correct the mistake that Saliha had done. Saliha and Zack must be together. She made up one plan. She must ensure them seeing each other and discuss their problem using their heart.
She had lied to Saliha and Zack that she wanted to meet her at the lake in this evening. Furthermore, she does not want things become worse by the time. She wanted them to be together. Finally, they arrived. They were really shocked to see each other. Numb. Zack realized all this must be made up by Yana . He wanted to use this opportunity to correct the things and proposed Saliha to be his wife. He had to take the risk. He want to make Saliha knew he is really love and sincere towards her. And again, Saliha cannot bare her tears and start to cries in front of the man that she really loved. However, this is not a sadness tears but a happiness tears. She run towards Zack and hugged him tightly.
Now, Saliha lives happily besides a man that she really loved with their children. Her sadness has turns into a glory happiness which really needed in every human life. She really thankful to her best friend, Yana whom has helps her a lot to get this sincere and pure love. Yana has found a perfect guy for her and they just married last month. She prayed for Yana â€™s happiness and has a perfect life with her beloved husband.
