Happy Valentine’s Day.
❤️ Six months ago, when your father conveyed a yes for our wedding, I thanked all the God’s in the world. The apprehensions of marrying a stranger came to a standstill when I saw you in your wedding attire.
❤️ Since that day I have been trying to know you and your life. And failing at it.
Soon I realized that your father’s ‘yes’ was literally his. Your discomfort and awkward silence around me was a proof of your compromise in this life-long commitment. I started questioning my ways and intentions of forcing you into this arranged marriage.
You cannot really blame me here because you are the most beautiful person I have ever laid my eyes on. And I honestly believe that ‘beautiful’ is a lousy way to describe you.
But a month ago, something changed.
❤️ You were glowing. Your charm and beauty had a new side that only made me fall for you more if that was even possible. We spoke for the longest time on the terrace that day and you even shared your favorite childhood memory. Holding your hand while walking down the stairs was the closest we had come since our wedding day.
The new neighbor got my attention when he came asking for help on his first day in the society. My intuition told me that he was looking for something. Now I know it was someone. It was you. Last week I offered to drop him at his office and he forgot his wallet in the car which I realized when I reached my office. I thought I will give it to him in the evening when it slipped off my hand and I noticed your face in it. The same that I saw on that matrimony website when I fell in love with you. (Happy Valentine’s Day 2019 Stories).
I don’t blame you for how things have turned out but I will if you do not figure out what you really want. If he is the one, you have the freedom to go with him. But if he is not, I want you to give me a chance. I don’t promise the world, but I promise that every day I will make you believe that you are mine.
I am scared to lose you. I am scared you will choose him over me. And this is what tells me that my love for you is the purest emotion I have ever felt. This makes me mad and tremble every time I think about your absence. Nothing above your happiness though.
P.S. The cupid should hit us both the next time.
