and i live in canada you know how most people usually have a cute little story behind their names well i do too you see my parents were really wealthy and had everything in the world except a child and finally after lots of prayers and 10 years of marriage mom got pregnant so when i came into this world dad chose the name hiba which means a gift from god in arabic they felt truly blessed well that's what i thought the story behind my name was it actually turns out to be something really shocking but before i continue click like and subscribe i was an only child and since both of my parents were two i had no aunties uncles or cousins but i didn't really feel lonely growing up my parents were my best friends and they pampered me to bits sometimes a little too much once when i was four years old they took me shopping to a toy store but when we found out that the barbie i'd wanted was out of stock dad kicked up such a fuss i need it for my daughter i don't care where you get it from just get it it's okay daddy i can get something else look this one's pretty too dad did get me that barbie and then he hopped on to the next flight to europe and got me the other one too when i was five my parents had a grand birthday party for me and they invited all their friends and their kids i was so excited to meet them but that soon turned to horror they were so loud and mean one of them pulled my hair and called me a giant and the rest burst out laughing after that i begged my parents and told them i didn't want to go to school with the other kids of course they gave in easily and hired the best tutors for me i was really happy to be homeschooled and books became my best friends i learned to read stories in english french and arabic i have the smartest and the most beautiful daughter in the world god truly gave me the most wonderful present dad started to be away for business more often and we missed him but he always brought me the loveliest books from around the world life seemed perfect until 1 december when i was 10. it was a few days before christmas and i went looking for my present in dad's study sure enough i found a velvet box and a card with my name on it my darling hiba i miss you so much i can't wait to be with you again when i opened the box i gasped the diamond necklace inside sparkled like stars but to be honest i was disappointed what was i supposed to do with a necklace feeling confused i ran with the box and card to my parents bedroom and shook dad awake daddy i found my present and i don't want it also why do you miss me i'm right here dad's eyes flew open mom asked me to leave the room and then a few seconds later i heard them fighting you you named our daughter after your girlfriend get out get out a few moments later dad came rushing out with a bag in his hand and when he saw me he hugged me i'll come back for you soon darling before i could say more he was gone he never came back for me i felt heartbroken and mom cried for weeks mom you can change my name if you want i know it makes you unhappy no heba nothing about you could ever make me unhappy you're my perfect beautiful girl after that day i decided i was ready to go to school i could use some friends but i had no idea what was waiting for me on the first day of sixth grade i walked into the classroom and noticed that everyone had suddenly stopped talking and was staring at me maybe it was because i was so pretty like mom always said and then a boy yelled out hey you giraffe girl how's the weather up there as everyone started to laugh i turned red and quickly rushed to the first empty seat it was only when the bell rang for recess and everyone stood up that i realized i was taller than everyone in my class including the boys i knew i was five feet eight inches but no one had ever told me that was strange for an 11 year old and even worse i had a growth spurt and by the time i was in the eighth grade i was six feet two inches being so tall suddenly certainly wasn't easy for me i hit my head on door frames and hanging lamps all the time all the cute dresses i loved to wear were like t-shirts for me now and i could never find nice clothes in my size and of course there was all the bullying i was officially a freak even teachers said mean comments about my height once the gym teacher said listen hiba you're just too tall to be a cheerleader or anything you're too tall to be a girl i'm sure it makes you sad and you hate yourself for being this tall so i'm just gonna do you a favor just don't come to my classes i understand your misery and that was one of the dumbest things i'd ever heard all the girls started laughing and i left the gym with tears in my eyes after being the target of all the tall girl jokes in the world and mostly spending time alone in the library i was glad to move to a new school in 9th grade on my first day at high school i was putting away stuff in my locker when i noticed a bunch of kids snickering behind me one of the girls said omg you're like freakishly tall did you know that i slammed the locker door shut and turned around omg i never noticed thank you for this brand new life-changing information and with that i walked away i had to make sure kids here knew i wasn't some pushover well it didn't really work the next day i was walking to a table with my lunch tray when suddenly someone pushed me from behind and i went flying i looked up angrily to see those awful kids doubled over with laughter it's so funny to see a tall person fall it's like someone chopped down a tree as i blinked away angry tears i heard someone say knock it off jerks she's my friend and you know you don't want to get on my wrong side immediately the kid scrambled away i saw a really pretty girl holding out her hand to me i've seen you around of course it's not hard to you should stick with me and my gang kid we kinda ruled this school it turned out her name was melissa and she wasn't kidding mel and her friends were cheerleaders and the most popular girls in school she was friends with all the jocks and practically the head of every club and suddenly i was one of them i had to admit it felt good to finally have people who have my back i stuck out like a sore thumb in their group and my head never fit into their selfies but at least i had friends melissa threw a big party on her birthday and as i hung out awkwardly in the corner i heard someone say wow i love how tall you are you look like a supermodel i looked around to see the most gorgeous boy and i turned 50 shades of red he introduced himself as darren the captain of the basketball team we'd be happy to have you play for us i know everyone thinks i must love playing basketball but i really don't i'm into writing stories actually we started talking and it was really easy and fun later he asked me to dance and as he pulled me close i felt sparks flying between us he was a few inches shorter than me but he didn't seem bothered at all and a few days later he asked me out we started dating and it was the happiest i'd been in a while when i showed him my journal with all my stories he was really impressed at my talent with his encouragement i submitted a story in a nationwide story writing contest a few weeks later when the principal came on stage during the assembly to announce the winner i waited breathlessly the story to get first prize is never let your dad name you oh my god yes by melissa oh my god what i stood frozen in shock as melissa skipped onto the stage and accepted the prize my head was spinning how was this even possible no one had read my story or even known i was entering the competition except one person during recess when i went off to the cafeteria to confront both melissa and darren i saw them sitting together at the table laughing away do you two want to explain what just happened darren did you did you steal my story why and why would you do this melissa suddenly melissa got up from the table and she looked at me with pure rage in her eyes i'll tell you i asked darren to switch your story with some other and i did that because i hate you so what if i stole your story you stole my dad wait what yeah i found pictures of you and your mom in his laptop a long time ago and when i saw you in school i just knew it was you he divorced mom and left us well you got to have him all to yourself melissa what are you talking about my dad has another family and and i haven't seen him in years he left us for some girlfriend i don't believe you and i hate you you ugly freak just as i was about to attack her darren stepped in to stop me pick on someone your own size godzilla so you just lied about liking me well duh why would i want to date you it would look like i'm hanging out with my mommy tall girls just aren't girly enough for me anyway i gave him a good hard slap on the face and you certainly aren't manly enough for me in fact you're the tiniest smallest guy i've ever met a real guy wouldn't feel threatened by a girl's hide oh also i'm way smarter than you both and with that i pulled out my phone from my pocket i had it on recording the whole time just some proof that you stole my story i stormed off to the principal's office and got both melissa and darren suspended but i wasn't over the shock of what i'd found later that evening mom found me crying in my room and i ended up telling her everything she was completely stunned i had no idea he had another wife or another child that man has caused so much pain melissa is just angry at him honey and she's taken it all out on you i kinda understood melissa's heartbreak and anger and i decided to forgive her once she came back after her suspension i went up to her listen we don't have to be enemies because of what dad did we're actually half sisters i never had a sibling can we have a fresh start in your freaking dreams i can't even stand the sight of you after a few days she left the school for good and i never saw her again i thought at least all my crazy problems would end after that but no after high school i got into a great writing program at university as soon as i graduated from university and accepted an editor's job in a publishing company mom started setting me up on dates to find a husband we just need to find you a tall husband i need to see my grandchildren before i die please heba just marry the tall men i'll find for you no mom please let me make this decision by myself let me choose him i've had enough jerks in my life but mom didn't listen one day we were at my mom's friend's place and i was trying to talk to her extremely boring son when suddenly his brother walked in he smiled and introduced himself as omar and with him i felt an instant connection as we got up to leave we both saw that i was at least half a foot taller than him wow you're taller than i guessed you'd be and the next day he called me up and asked me out on a date we went out for a few months after which he proposed and i was more than happy to say yes on our wedding day the photographer wanted omar to stand on a little stool for all our photos but he said he was perfectly fine with the way we were thank you very much fast forward five years and i've published two best-selling novels i also have three kids now and i hope they grow up to love reading just as much as i do<br><!-- wp:image {"id":1776,"sizeSlug":"large","linkDestination":"none"} -->rn<figure class="wp-block-image size-large"><img class="wp-image-1776"
