Valentine’s day – 2

February 14, 2010

Thanks for those lovely comments all for the first part… I am really, really happy and excited… Here is the second part. I hope you will like this too… Let me know your comments on this…

Feb 13, Yesterday…

I was preparing myself on how to express my love. I have heard, at the most important times words will fail you. I don’t want that to happen in my life, most importantly, at this time. I have bought one loveliest of all the cards, and wanted to write a poem in it. But I don’t want to ruin my chances by myself. Chocolates…. Yeah… I have bought a lot. Flowers… I thought of buying it just before meeting her.

But I couldn’t guess the reason for her to meet me on Valentine’s Day. ‘Is she too in love with me?’ if I ask that question to myself, I will just shook my shoulders and head in disapproval. In these 6 months I have never seen her behavior and talk like that. But is it really easy to find what a girl is thinking? I don’t know. But I couldn’t sit through this. By afternoon I send out a message, “Hey… why you suddenly want to see me on Sunday?” and waited with a baited breath. I am just peeking into my mobile every now and then and every little noise sounds like my SMS tone. But no responses from her till the evening.  Those few hours will for sure go into the longest hours in my life.

So I decided to call her up. I called her up in the evening.


“Hey, tell me… Really sorry that I couldn’t reply to you… I slept … just now woke up”

She always has this habit of saying the sorry in the cutest manner… and for me to see and hear that she can go on making mistakes.

After the customary insignificant enquiries like what are you doing now? what you had for lunch? What you have been doing from the morning? I breathed and prayed before asking her for the reason on why she has to meet me? But too ease myself I told her that I too wanted to meet her by tomorrow.

“Why you want to see me tomorrow??”

“We are going to meet tomorrow and I will tell you then”

“No, no.. you should tell me now or never”

Suddenly she started to demand the reason with hundreds of why. I realized my mistake now. I don’t know why… the girls always want to leave a secret or wait for a secret. It will look like if not their head will break into pieces. There are lots of times I say something like this foolishly to her, ‘I will tell you later’ and end up saying everything before the end of that conversation. But this time it’s not like before. I don’t want to let her know anything about my love that moment.

It’s also too difficult to change the topic with her but I have to do the inevitable here.

“I will tell you for sure but by tomorrow… now tell me why you want to see me tomorrow?”

What I am going to do now??? I decided to buy some time now.

“I have asked you first, so you tell me first… Then I will tell you”

“Ok… that’s a fair deal… “

One good thing about her is we can delay the happenings with some little persuasion.

She started to speak in a hushed, a sorrowful voice… “You know the people in my home were going crazy. They are talking about my marriage now. My grandma….”

Oh god!!!! I couldn’t believe what I was hearing then… I don’t want to hear this anymore…

“Do you believe this?” She asked me.

I wanted to shout out loud, ‘No, I don’t want to believe this crap’

Suddenly the call ended. I don’t know why. I also don’t want to know why. I am really happy that call ended at that moment. I just wanted that conversation to be one bad dream. But it is not. I questioned myself that whether I have made a mess by not saying my love till now. I wanted to kick myself hard for that. I took a long time to come back to my senses.

After 30 minutes, my mobile blinked and let out a shriek on receiving a SMS. It was from her.

‘Sorry for ending the call abruptly…. mom suddenly came and wanted me to accompany her to a reception. I think I will return late to home. Will tell the remaining thing tomorrow and yeah… you should tell yours… Be there by sharp 4.P.M.’

With lot of wide grin smileys.

What’s there to tell, I thought. Everything ended by now. The afternoon hours through which I waited for her reply seemed to be really, really short. I have prepared myself for long days… no no… longing days ahead.

I really couldn’t sleep that night… But I hoped against hope that what she has said shouldn’t be true.

Feb 14, Today…

I reached CCD by 3:50 itself. I kept the card in home itself as it is surely not needed. But I took the chocolates with me. I didn’t want to enter into it and see all those lovers having fun. She came there after some 10 minutes waving her hand at me. I just raised my hand and nodded my head. We entered into the shop and could see it is almost full. After searching for little longer than a minute we found a table to sit.

“So…”, she said.

“What?”, I asked impatiently. I wanted to go out as quickly as possible.

“Are you still angry on me for ending the call abruptly??”

I wanted to tell her that surely not for that reason.

She went on. “I said na… my mom… she came rushing into the room asking me to get ready… get ready… get ready… I couldn’t do anything but to end the call… also came back to home after 11 only… liked to call you… but you could have slept.. so don’t want to disturb you”

“What do you want, Sir?”, The waiter at the CCD interrupted. Usually they never attend anybody by themselves. But today being a busy day they are asking by themselves, I thought.

“Cold coffee”, she said.

Yesterday before that call, I wanted to have what she liked. But now surely I don’t want to.

“Hot chocolate”, I said. He queried whether we want to have anything more. I looked at her. She shook her head. I said, “That’s it”.

Even though I am not interested to talk anything more to her, I wanted to know what is the reason for the sudden decision in her home.

Before I could ask, she asked me, “Tell me what you have to tell?”

Without giving a straight answer, ‘I don’t want to’, I asked her to tell what happened there at home.

She started, “As I have told you yesterday, my old grandma suddenly fearing that she might die by anytime and wants to see my marriage. She is really crazy… I tell you. My mom and dad were searching for the groom for the past few days… and also shown few photos to me… yesterday in the function too my mom were telling to our relative about this and asking them to search”

I don’t know what to say at all. I wished she say that whatever she said until now is a great lie. But she didn’t.

“Hmmm”, I sounded.

“Okay… now tell me… What you wanted to say…?”

“No… nothing. Now it’s really not needed”, I went on saying like that…

She persisted that she likes to know whatever it is and I kept refusing. As I was about to stood up and walk away, she asked me ‘You love me, don’t you?”

How she knows this??? I wanted to refuse… No.. I don’t want to… I can’t. I am dumbstruck and sat there with my heads down.

“Tell me… I always sensed that you love me… and when you have said you want to meet me today, I got my guess right. So don’t you want to know am I loving you or not?”

It was a shocking and embarrassing moment to me. Sitting in front of my loving girl but yet when she asks for my approval, I really didn’t know what to tell to her at that moment. At last the most feared moment came. Words going to fail me, I thought.

“But… but… but… You have said… your parents looking out… for a groom…” I stammered.

She had a hearty laugh at that. “That’s a little prank by me… Isn’t it amazing???” she said in an exciting tone.

Now I wanted to tell her my love and wanted to hug and kiss her. But this CCD guy returned with Cold coffee and hot chocolate. I wanted to yell at him. But I didn’t want to spoil this whole excitement.

Now she again laughed at me. I asked the CCD guy to take away the hot chocolate and asked him to get another straw.

As he went away to take it, I proposed my love and kissed on her cheeks at the blink of the eye. As she stood up to hit me, he returned with the straw. We sipped the single glass of cold coffee. I felt that some part of me leaving as she left to home.


PS: I just want to let you all know the person who inspired me to write this story 🙂 🙂 Surely, surely not a girl 🙂 🙂 He is Karthik and a blogger too. He has written this beautiful love story few days ago. So I thought of giving an attempt 🙂

Happy Valentine’s day to you all 🙂 🙂

2 lovely songs on this day…

First one is of ‘Maestro’ Ilayaraja’s

    kanagu: Me too wish that.. but the thing is I have only visited CCD that for only one time… so thought of drawing some experience from that…. 🙂 🙂

  18. February 17, 2010 7:27 am

    God if a guy came to see me with a bucket of chocolates I tell you I won’t even think twice and grab his hands for life :mrgreen:

    kanagu: LOL… 😆 is that how grabbed the hands of ur hubby??? 😀 😀
    I am just peeking into my mobile every now and then and every little noise sounds like my SMS tone. I must say you are the master of analogies…what a comparison !!!

    kanagu: he he he.. that suddenly came up while writing this story… 🙂 🙂
    I don’t know why… the girls always want to leave a secret or wait for a secret. Ahem…that’s coz we are genetically engineered to use 3rd degree torture techniques to get guys to speak out their weird mind 🙄 😛

    kanagu: Weird mind… hmmmm… 👿 👿 😆 😆

    lolz Venkat seems such a cute stubborn guy from the lines Yesterday before that call, I wanted to have what she liked. But now surely I don’t want to. I am like that…when I get upset with you know who 😛 I do everything the exact opposite of what he likes :mrgreen:

    kanagu: he he he… 🙂 🙂 🙂
    I almost thought Venkat will order tea at CCD and make it himself stirring like mad to get over with his anger 🙄

    kanagu: Here you could see…. this is not my real life story…. 😀 😀
    Awesome Kanagu and happy valentines day to you and hope next year you will celebrate it with someone ispecial 😉

    Delighted to read the happy ending to this romantic story!!! 🙂 Fantastic, keep writing more like this.

    kanagu: Thanks Raj.. I am really happy to hear such comment from you.. 🙂 🙂 and will try to write.. hope I get more themes.. 🙂 🙂
    On another note, now that things have been sorted out, when is your wedding 😛


    kanagu: LOL.. 😆 that I will surely tell you.. 🙂 🙂

    Or is this really a “fiction” 😕 Sounds too real and personal to sound like “fiction” to me! I guess only the names are fictional, am I correct? 😛


    kanagu: There are few things happened in real life but not to me… but other than that… many are fiction only Raj… 🙂 🙂

  26. March 7, 2010 3:02 pm

    Glad you made it a happy ending thala. Venkat seems too good a character to suffer a love failure. 🙂 🙂 And why do gals always think their prank is something sweet all time while our heart do all the stunts in tamil cinema? 🙂

    kanagu: Indha ponnungale ipdi than pa… LOL 😆 😀 😀 Karthik kooda than… make it happy ending in your next parts 🙂 🙂
    Do keep writing romantic fiction thala. This one is really good read.
