They all got permission from their parents where Meher was still deciding whether to ask their parents or not. Since She only used to go out with her parents.

Living with Sarmad for few days, she was attracted to him and was in love with him until Sarmad revealed his true identity.
The book has ups and downs this coupled faced and is full of suspense how Sarmad secretly worked for an army and gave information of terror group’s activities. how Meher and Sarmad already met in their Childhood and they were attached to each other in their childhood too. How she was never able to recognize Sarmad, her childhood friend until she found his journal. How army saved his life but his own uncle let him to death. The story is beautifully written but there are two sides of a story- one from Sarmad’s side and other from Meher’s side makes it a bit confusing but worth reading.
The story caught my interest in the second part when Sarmad true identity was revealed and how finally these two hearts met though death came to them.
The story of love, fate, destiny is very interesting, full of suspense, mysteries and is worth reading.
