A loud sound and the crash of concrete awoke Nabila and Nabiha from their sleep. As they opened their eyes, they were petrified to see their parents trapped in the debris.
“Abba! Ammi!” the ten-year old twins cried in vain.

“We are all living fragile lives, sister. The world is bombing each other with eyes shut and people like us lose our dear ones. Keep praying.” Nabila tried not to cry.
