Celebrations were going on in full swing. The atmosphere was filled with laughter and joy. Kids were running around playing without any tension. It was a typical marriage house. Elders were busy making final preparations for the Moment. Youngsters were dancing and having fun.
He sat in his room quietly. He hated the noise going on outside. He wondered what he was doing here. This is not the place he should be right now. He looked at the time - 7 p.m. He should be somewhere else but any time they will call him.
She looked at the watch – 7 p.m. He should be here by now. Where was he? She again looked around herself. Everything was ready. Only he had to come. But then she wondered – Why hasn’t he come?
“Dilwale Dulhinya le jaayenge” – Background was filled with this song.
Priest was chanting the mantra’s when he said, call the groom. Groom’s brother started going upstairs to call his brother. As he passed the bride’s room, he heard laughter. He smiled as he heard the bride’s friends teasing her.
His phone started ringing.He felt his feet go cold. He had to decide now. He looked at his phone and then at the door. He had to decide now.
She looked at the time desperately. He should be here by now. She got scared. What’s taking him so long? After a long time she was very happy and looking forward to something! She again looked at the time and then nervously picked up her phone calling his number.
The bride walked down the stairs as everyone looked up admiring her. Everyone gathered around the stage practically crowding the place. The bride sat in her place as the priest continued chanting the mantra’s. Shehanai was also being played loudly
He opened the door and and just started running outside as everyone stared at him. He drove his bike as fast as he could to the station. He had to stop her before she left him forever. He made the biggest mistake of letting her go in the first place.
His phone kept ringing. Why isn’t he picking up the call? Has he forgotten that we were to meet here. She kept looking around for him.
The Groom looked at his bride and smiled as he went to tie Mangal sutra around her neck. Just as he tied it, he gave her rose in her hands and whispered in her ears – “Welcome to my life, I Love You”.
He spotted her waiting in the platform for the train. He ran to her and fell down on his knees. She looked startled as he held her hand and gave a rose and said – “My dear wife, please forgive me and don’t leave me. I Love You.”
She felt some one behind her. She turned and saw him standing. She was about to scold him when she saw him looking apologetically as a small school kid. She couldn’t help but smile. He looked up at her and took out a rose and said – “For our 50th wedding anniversary, I Love You”
