A Love Story
It all started the day I was going to my cousin Sapna's wedding
She was 27 years old, and finally getting married. I, who was 23, wondered when my day will come. We arrived at the location few hours early to help decorate. Me, being the stupid one, climbed the chair to fix the one of the lights. I was wearing a srai, and I fell over. But, luckily, someone had caught me. i didn't know who he was, or where he came from. All i knew was he had the greatest brwon eyes of all time.
"Thanks," I said
My aunt walked over. She told me the guy was cousins with Rohit, my cousins soon to be husband. For someone reason, I couldn't stop thinking about him
It was time for the wedding. I saw him again.
"Excuse me, but I didn't get your name."
" Sorry. My name is Afreen. What about you?"
It took me a good 5 minutes to realize I was smiling like an idiot. Their was something about him that made me forget about everything else. Maybe the same something Sapna felt when she met Rohit.
At the reception, i overheard my mom talking to Rohit's mom. They were talking about how they felt me and Aryaan were perfect for each other. They caught me listening. I started to blush, and walked away.
It was time for dancing. More specifically, couple dancing. I was sitting at the table watching all the couples dance. Suddenly, Aryaan asked me to dance. I saw my mom from the other side, who smiled and nodded her head, indicating me to go. And so, I did.
We danced to Pehla Nasha. It felt like a perfect moment. It took as while to realize we were the only couple left on the dance floor later on. Soon, it was time to bid farewell to Sapna. I knew she was going to start a new fresh life with Rohit. I tried not to cry, but I did. I stopped after Aryaan smiled at me. I had to smile back for some reason.
Two days later, I got a phone call.
"Hey its Aryaan." I felt my heart skip a beat
"Listen, are you free, lets go get a coffee or something."
"Okay. Come pick me up?"
I hung up. I didn't know how he got my number. I didn't care how he got my number. I was just happy he called, and thought of me.
When we got to the coffee place, he helped me take my coat off, and put it behind my chair. We talked about what we liked. He loves being with hsi friends, and family just like me. His favorite food is pani puri, and loves to drink Coffee. We had so much in common.
"Your eyes are really pretty," he told me.
I smiled. Thanks.
He dropped me home around 10:30. I realized I forgot to tell me mom where I went. I check my phone. 5 missed calls. I was dead. I ran inside
"Kaha thi tu? Where were you!?" She looked steamed
"Umm, Aryaan called to took me out to coffee. Sorry i forgot to tell you."
She smiled. "Oh okay, no problem."
That was weird. She usually never let things slip by like that.
The next day, my mom came up to my room.
"Hurry up and wear that new dress i got you. A boy is coming to see you."
I was shocked. Who could it be? I felt like I was in love with Aryaan. But, I couldnt argue with my mom. I got ready and did what she said.
When i went downstairs, i couldn't belive what I saw. Aryaan was their with his family. His mom and dad smiled as I walked down.
"Such a nice choice my son has," She said.
His dad asked me a few questions.
"What do you do?"
" Uncleji, I am currently in search of a job. I have studied to be a doctor. I attended Boston University."
" Oh okay. So you and Aryaan are on the same boat. Job searching."
"How do you plan on serving your in-laws?"
"My mother has taught me that a girl is lucky because in her life she gets 2 parents. One that love her before marriage, and one after. The term in-laws do not fit you guys. Your are as equal as my parents. I will treat you the same way. I will care for you, and I will serve you. You two will become my mother and my father after marriage."
"Do you plan on moving into a separate house in a few years?"
"I would like to keep you 2 with me, if that is okay with Aryaan"
"And, what about kids?"
"I hope to have 2 kids. A son, who will take care of the family property, and will live a successful life, and daughter, so I can pass on the good values that my mother has given me."
His dad seemed happy with my answers. They left, and promised to call back later on with their decison. My mom alreayd knew that for me it was a yes. And i knew that Aryaan was the one.
About 5 hours later, the phone rang. My mom came to room and said, "Its a yes."
I was beyond happy. I finally found someone I loved
We got engaged the week after. Our marriage is in 3 month. Since Aryaan's dadi wants to see him get married, we are going to India and exchanginf vows their.
I was happier than words can describe.
