It was the morning after my wedding. Most people have it once a lifetime- this was my third one. The thought made me shudder so I chose to block it. Just as I blocked the fact that Sid had not replied to my messages or calls after he left for US. Arman said it was best for him to move on and it was better not to communicate with him for a while. But I couldnt stop worrying! Sid was not like Arman - when he hurt he didnt take it out on himself externally so that we could jump to save him-No he hurt internally in a secret way so that his friends and family didnt suffer seeing his pain. He never let them see it.
I swallowed -It was unfair especially for him to suffer alone. He had been my guide through the darkest moments of my life and he had guided Arman too. I wanted to be there for him but I knew I had done enough. I , in my selfish journey of self-discovery have cost him too much. I live with that guilt now and the knowledge that I could never help Sid.
" Thinking abt me Basket?" Arman murmured seductively in my ears. I blushed guitily. I needed to be thinking about Arman not Sid.
" Thinking about your breakfast actually-" I replied with a smile " What do you like for breakfast? Toast - paratha-eggs?"
Arman leaned over and kissed my neck " You"
I stepped back and placed myself against the kitchen counter. He followed me and placed his hands on my waist
"Arman." I began warningly
He chuckled :" You need to stop shying away from me. We are married"
"I know but I need some time" I said for what felt like a thousandth time
" You love me" he replied not moving an inch
" I still need some time" I stated firmly
He moved back grudgingly " I love you and I will wait for ever but I dont see why we are waiting? We are in love and married"
I stared at him with confusion all over my face " I -I Its been a long year Arman. When you left we were in a happy place but then so much happened that I ..." I trailed off feeling anxious. Arman being Arman lovingly hushed me.
"Why dont you let me serve you breakfast Basket?" he said charmingly
I nodded. Arman- dear old Arman- He was so loving that I felt like a princess.Minutes later I was being served with a cup of cappucino and two omelet eggs.
I stared at him and he gave me his trademark grin " Ridhima I still remember everything you love."
Without replying I dug in my breakfast and ate enthusiatically. It was when I finished the breakfast and assured Arman that I loved the eggs that I realised it had been over a year since I ate an omelet and I didnt miss it even once.
