(Son of Maulana): Short story


Amr noticed that people give his father a special treatment, and nicknames such as "Sharif", "Maulana", etc. At the same time, why his Aunt Fouzia, is "Aunt" only? And "The grocer Shaban " is "The grocer" only?
If Maulana walked in the street, everyone are going fast to kiss his hand. So that Amr thought that it's a normal greet way,  trying it with him neighbor Sarah, then uncle Shaban.
The child Sarah Received the matter sheepishly, but the Grocer Shocked.
- Forgiveness, Maulana's son, please do not do it again, we, who should take the blessing from you.
The boy marveled most; what does "the blessing" means? And why  his family has it only?
- "What?! Do you kissed Shaban's hand?!"
The father shouted when the son told him, then he calm down little, taking the hand of his son to the lounge.
-What is this?
Dad asked while pointing to the wall.
-Photos.
-For how?
-This is you, and grandfather Mansor, and the big uncle Gamil.
-Gamal, Those are Sheikhdom and blessing owners, your grandparents. I has inherited this legacy of them, then subsequently moved to You, so simply  you  are different,  you are Maulana.
Father went, leaving son in the his confusion.                                                                      
                                          ***********
The child Amr became teenager, Therefore as usual, his feelings went to "the daughter of the neighbors" firstly.
The boy loved Sarah, loved talk to her and looking to her. While they are playing "Hide And Seek", he touched her hair, moving away quickly to the semi-dark corner of AlSaha.
" I am Here, Sarah, come if you could know where I'm".
Sarah Guessed his place by following the sound, her arms moved here and there, groping her way.
When she reached the corner, feeling a hot breaths on her face, and finding herself in his arms, lifted Sarah tape from her eyes aghast. During Seconds, she left crying.
Amr has scared; Sarah will tell everyone now, How he would justify this sin? And what about his family?  What about Maulana? How to face them?
He ran to his room, closing the door on himself, and the same thing with the window, then sat beside her to hearing; his house is located directly in front of the Sarah's house.
He heard her crying, and describing what happened, then the sound of the slap.
The boy did not understand, there is something illogical.
Amr continued, more concentration, and shocked because that what he heard is true. Sarah screamed, Swearing she is honest.
without doubt she has received a slap in the face, he do not understand how? Or why? But this is what happened.
- Enough, girl, the son of Maulana does not doing it.
The voice of her dad said.
The boy felt down; when he was a child, he did not understand the meaning of word "Maulana", but he did now, by the hardest way.
After what happened, How to be a man, take responsibility for what he did? How to be Maulana.
Amr decided to admit, but to who?
- Maulana directly?
-No way, It will be suicide.
- his mom?
-No,  He does not guarantee her reaction too.
-The second wife of father?  This is a good compromise, she loves him as a son, and will know how to tell others.
The young went to father's wife directly, telling her that they wronged Sarah, I actually hugged her, when we were playing in Alsaha, then I tried..
Amr stopped, when he felt a hand placed on his shoulder, making the boy shuddered , he knows this touch, it's belongs to ..... Maulana.
But.. but he surprised by his dad's quiet features.
- You accuses yourself to save your friend! you are Maulana rightly.
- Dad, I tell the truth, I really did.
-- Whatever you said, I would not believe you, The small Maulana does not do it.
Father has not added another word, going to his room.
  - Wait, Dad, I am ........
But sheikh Saleh did not wait,
The child screamed, reiterated, but in the end, no one heared a voice except for.... Maulana's voice.
                                                  (The end)
