village, lived with her brother Farag and his wife. She worked with
him to meet living costs. All the young men in the village wanted her
because of her charm and beauty but none approached her other than
Shaban, who did so despite his mother's objections. He made a
contract to marry her and her brother Farag felt relieved because his
sister had finally settled on somone. A frivolous boy named Gharib
appeared and tried to get Banat by offering to have the local
seamstress Zakia make some clothing for her, but he failed. Shaban
noticed Gharib's attention and Banat's rejection of him; they
quarrelled and he had to cancel the marriage contract. Farag
suggested she marry Gharib, but she vehemently refused. Gharib came
across her once in a field and when she saw him she was horrified and
ran away from him screaming. The people in the village thought he had
raped her and they took her to Om George for an examination to see if
she was still a virgin. Her innocence was proven, but she could no
longer live among them so she went to Zakia the taylor so she could do
what the people in the village wanted her to do so she could submit
herself to Gharib.
