I couldn’t give reason to you for stopping the car, what could I even tell you. I just got excuse and got down. Got some fresh air and was looking around. Found a flower shop and my favourite cake shop on road side. What should I do now? Go ahead as my heart says or wait for better understanding as my mind says. Its too early to do anything. But still I never wanna miss this chance so ordered a small bouquet with red and yellow roses and gained some courage to write a card with “Will you be my soulmate?” Before it was ready, I just asked shall we munch a cake before we start again and without second thought you got down and followed me to shop. You ordered two slice of Neapolitan cake with frosting rosettes (wow! Impressed with your selection). By the mean while I ordered red velvet cake in heart shape with birthday note. I could hear my own heartbeat. Beating faster than necessary. Looking around, few more couples were also there, what the hell, its almost midnight still people are awaken. After few chit chatting, we left the shop.
Before getting into car, saw clock was to strike 12.00, so arranged the cake in bonnet. I blushed seeing you blushing. Cake was cut with joyful cheers and shared the slice. Heard my inner voice saying, “If not now, then never” and gave the bouquet with positive hope. Fingers crisscrossed, perplexed, couldn’t read your eyes now. Millions of thought inside, few minutes of silence was dreadful.
You wrote something and went on kneels with same bouquet. It stated “Forever Yours”. Eyes were filled with tears of Love. Never thought such will happen in my fairy dream too. This moment was enough to live the rest of life, whatever happens in future. I was on cloud nine. As we hugged, rest of tears overflowed.
I was disturbed while cherishing these memories as I sensed the pain of a pinch. Aww! My Love..!! There you came with two glass of Strawberry milkshake. Sipping our favourite milkshake now and sharing that evening’s mesmerising moment once again was just awesome. I feel goosebumps when I think all these happened in single night. You ended up asking same question every time when we share about our first meet, how I was confident about Love. What made me to be courageous?
This year I thought to reveal as we are married couples now and gonna celebrate first anniversary in two weeks. And my answer: the logic was simple, that night some magic was there between us in the party. That night I had to leave bcoz of exam but there was no reason for you to leave the party where joy was in peak just to drop me. After hearing, you hugged tight and whispered no one has understood me better. 😉 Life is happy with you beside me for now and forever.
