How I avoided getting shot by knowing a little Arabic!

Allright, so a language saved me from getting shot today!!

I was sitting around in a garden when a girl came up and started looking at me. She started smiling while waving a gun around.. A guy she was with told her something in Arabic, she slowly pointed the gun towards me!

I assumed the guy ordered the girl to shoot me me, softly I let out my best arabic “no” which sounds somewhat like when you say “laa” with a strange knick at the end of the laa sound.

She lowered the waterpistol! I had saved myself from being drenched by a two year old daughter of my arabic neighbour!

I told the guy: “Phew, i guess my arabic saved me there…”
We both giggled and agreed!
