I, He and the last message

Written By : Namrata

I was cold feet gazing at the form and for a second gave a last thought – “Was this final, am I sure of doing what I am sitting here to do? If it happened, it had to last lifelong!”

I was at PC Jewelers showroom, buying the ring; the engagement ring for him, along with my dad. Like every bride-to-be, I was too excited to select one among those beautifully intricate pieces of diamonds and when finally chose one, they gave me a form to fill. Generally branded showrooms give a form wherein we fill the name, birth date, anniversary date and so on…

Exactly was this form, as I flipped the page it asked me to mention the name of my spouse and his details. My dad was noticing me pen down.

And there, in that moment I felt choked. I was cold feet, gazing at the form and there was whole lot of commotion within – “Was this final, am I sure of getting married? If it happened, it had to last lifelong! I mean it was just 4-5 months since we became friends and we are getting engaged. What if things don’t work? What if it wasn’t enough love rather a mistook infatuation? Was it an end to my career? Was it a decision I took just to escape from the emotional depression I had been?

The whirlpool of questions made me drop the pen and text him one last time (though I knew he had his corporate leather ball cricket match).

I messaged – “Abhi, I know this might irritate you, that too at this moment of time when you would be on field, but am getting cold feet so wished to know for one last time- Are you sure of me, of us? Once we are engaged, we will have to spend the entire life together!”

I started tapping my feet and biting my nails (which I have been growing for my engagement since long), constantly checking the messages and waiting for him to reply. My dad asked me to complete the form so that he can make the payment. I asked him to wait for 5 more minutes.

Suddenly my phone notified “1 message from Sunshine (his name in my contacts list)”.

My fingers hastened to open the text. He wrote – “Yes, I was sure of you the moment I saw you and would always remain so! And am as much sure of us as am sure of bringing laurels in my match which is within next 10 minutes. I love you!

A chill ran down my spine. His confidence is everything that makes me an even stronger being.

I took the pen and wrote his name, proudly, in the space for spouse and bought the ring.

To my surprise, he was awarded the Best Batsman of the
league, hit the highest 4s in the league and Man of the Match that day.

And to his happiness, we are lovingly engaged now
