Yasmine is from England and her parent are from Afghanistan but moved to England for education and schooling and to raise Yasmine but now she is getting older and more responsible so her parents decided to move to Afghanistan and teach.
Now they are very successful teaching at the university in Afghanistan but only the farther is aloud because there is this law that the woman is not aloud to be in a room with other men besides her husband or farther/older brother in the same room.(besides her house)
But now Yasmine meets a new friend (Tamanna) and they became very close with each other so close that they treat each other like family and Yasmine’s farther is now teaching both of them but all of that is ruined when Tamanna’s uncle set up an enraged marriage for her.
So Yasmine’s parents went out onto the street to talk to Tamanna’s mother is secret without anybody knowing beidess Yamine to talk about moving back to England and taking Tamanna with them so she can have a fresh new start with rights and freedom. Tamanna’s mother was very sick and weak but very happy to hear this. She said she ran away and hid from her uncle so Yasmine’s parents went out onto the streets and went looking for her, but her uncle knew some Taliban men and sent them to go look for a young girl in a brand new blue burka (which Yasmine has gave to her)and there parents didn’t know that the Taliban went looking for them to because they thought they were spies for the International Security Assistance Forces. So her parents went out on the streets and look while Yamine stayed at home waiting. But her parent has been spotted by the Taliban and started shooting. Yasmine ran out onto the street looking for her parents. Now her parent had been shot only twice but there was some American soldiers passing by to help.
So they took them to Kandahar city for help right away they flew in a helicopter but Yasmine had a few words to say to her parent “I will find Tamanna and bring her to Kandahar City where I will meet you then we can go to our real home back in England”. She said with tears runny down her face. Her mother agreed and talk to the soldier what is there plan. And the soldier said were not aloud to take you with us because it will be kid napping according to the Afghani people. But ill send you by car.
Yasmine said in Dari(one on the two official languages in Afghanistan) her is the girl Yasmine her British parents are in Kandahar City waiting for her. (Yasmine would find another way to her family but Tamanna need help right away , that’s how much they cared for each other ,so Yasmine and Tamanna are switching identities) the soldiers knew exactly what she is talking about because they were told to look for her and bring her to the airport to meet her parents there, so they took Yasmine(Tamanna) to the airport and flew her to England where her parents were.
The closets friends are like family so treat them like family.
