Not Your Baby

Seluah Alsaati

My ex used to give me catty looks from the field and I imagined what his calves looked like  underneath his socks. His name was Ahmed, but everybody called him Ahmed the Foot because he was so fast with the football. He could get the ball right from half a field’s distance, but he couldn’t get me right a centimeter away. So I asked him:
”Do you even know what a clitoris is?”
”Is it some kind of animal?”

Samira is looking for three things in a guy. He has to be able to behave, be intelligent, and to pleasure a girl. But finding someone who meets all requirements seems more difficult than keeping a pair of white sneakers white. Then she meets Nabil and everything seems perfect. He encourages her to write rap lyrics and is interested in her football playing. Maybe too interested even? Soon he wants to control everything she does, and her existence becomes more and more narrow. At the same time, Samira’s friend is being shamed on social media by a guy she broke up with. But revenge is sweet, and luckily there are nice guys as well.
