Naureen was ecstatic at the thought of finally getting to hug her grandma again in Germany as they drove expectantly to the airport. She patiently waited for her older two children, Yahya,12, and Emaan, 10, to stop arguing. They seemed to be at that age where they managed to quarrel over the smallest of things. Naureen had learnt to leave them be; it was too much effort to intervene. Besides, she still had her youngest daughter, Halima to fuss over, who was still a baby yet and had no reason to quarrel with anyone. The journey flew by, and before long they were at the airport and had checked in, making their way to the departure lounge.
