New Delhi : 22nd December, 2010 , 17.20 hours

"Your kind attention please!, this is the final boarding call for the passengers travelling in Indian Airlines flight IC-810 to Mumbai, I repeat.. IC-810 to Mumbai. Passengers are requested to proceed for boarding through Gate No 22A"....
Priya just was through her security check and was waiting for her bag to pass through the x-ray clearance. She picked it to look for her mobile. It read a text from Karthik.. "Yes.. i'd be in the meeting at Taj till 9.30.. will talk to you after that!... miss you :)".
Believe me... Priya was literally flying even before she boarded her flight!.. she could never imagine that she would give Karthik such a surprise and she just remembered that morning conversation with Karthik.. "I know it's is our anniversary Karthik, but this business deal is never going to come again, Sunita will never give us time again and you understand that!... moreover we'll be soon together in the next couple of days and we've got an entire evening for us together next week!"....
She could really appreciate the forced smiling "good evening madam!" uttered by the pretty old lady air hostess for the first time :D... to add more height to her flight came the text from Sunita which read her company would be happy to meet Priya the next week as they were looking forward to work with them!....
When the lights were dimmed for take off Priya just closed her eyes to remember the afternoon...

New Delhi : 22nd December, 2010, 15.15 hours

Arvind was little bit nervous as the time kept running as he had to leave by 3.30 p.m. He picked his phone and rang Priya. When connected Priya said I'll be there in 2 minutes and she did.
A smile, hand shake and a hello were exchanged... "You were late by 17 minutes Priya!"..
"I'm sorry Arvind.. we can extend this meeting till 4.00 and I'm sure that you'll get this deal!".. said Priya....
"Thank you so much but I have to leave by 3.30, I'll let the offer go"... replied Arvind with a smile
"You look like my father's age!...Would you mind if I ask you what important work you have letting off a million dollor business Mr. Arvind".
"I need to have tea in my home at 4.00 miss Priya!...".. smiled Arvind

Mumbai : 22nd December, 2010, 21.30 hours

"Excuse me sir... your champagne!" relinquished the waiter to Karthik.
"I'm sorry, but I didn't order it"... said Karthik polietly holding the champagne which had a tagline which read please reach La Patisserie.
It was pretty unusal sight for Karthik when he was nearing it as all the lights were off. The moment he stepped in all the lights glittered with Priya on front with a bunch of flowers surrounded by their friends!...
"Happy Anniversary Karthik!"... smiled Priya... two drops of tears and a moment of silence followed by a warm hug summarized it all....
"how come Priya?..." exclaimed Karthik...

New Delhi, 22nd December 2010, 15.33 hours

Priya was puzzeled like what this man is talking... sitting in one of the cities best coffee outlet he is talking about having tea at home... weired she thought... Arvind could read it on her face... without letting her complicate more on her thoughts Arvind interupted "beta!, I need to have the tea with my wife....she is a patient who don't remember anyone around her.. not even me as her husband... and if I don't be there at 4 she'll be missing her tea.."
"Since?".. questioned Priya... "just last 3 years"... replied Arvind...
"Sorry again if you don't mind she is not going to recognize you as her husband, then why you should be there?..." puzzled Priya
"right... she doesn't recognize me as her husband but I still do... and attention is all what love needs isn't it?'....
Priya went blank. It's so very true that love can dig out anything from you!... Priya realized :).

September 6, 2009... 08.00 hours

It was on a chilly morning on that drizzling day!... I could realize a vibration in my entire body not because of the chillness that creeped. I held up the marriage invitation card on the table and held it firmly.... I never beleived this day would come... tears rolled out even withut my permission when a drop fell on "Priya weds.....

May 9, 2005

That was my first day but the classes had began a week before. After a couple of formalities, a bloke guided me through to my classes... it could hardly be an hour since I stepped into the campus but i had heared guys talking about Priya every here and there. I must admit that I was vehement to see her... I had a habit of visualizing someone whenever I hear a name... I wished Priya to be the one I imagined off.... as I walk the corridor, to my surprise, the sketch in my mind crossed me!.. a moment when my senses stopped... I couldn't stop gazeing her... she noticed me as I could sense her weirdness as her eyes went shrinking down looking at me.
"Priya?"... I asked!... her eye lids closed in an ultra slow motion synchrosided with a nod of her head held me to cloud nine!....

September 6, 2009... 08.15 hours

I could feel the scenes happening just now in my world... how can one forget!.. the hinderence to my memory accumalation came in when someone knocked the door and said..."Get ready soon Karthick!"...."Ya!, 10 more mins"... replied me.... I could hear the harmony happening downstairs where the marriage is...

Decemeber 2, 2005

We were closer. She was almost the only friend I had. We shared a special cohession and I was on top of her priority friend.
“Karthik…call me daily, we'll be in touch” wispered her. “
"It's just a month break Priya!... it'll zip through!"....
Thanks to the sms packages.... there were hundreds exchanged on a day!.... anxiousness creeped when there was a delayed reply!... overall I could conclude that she is the one for me!....

Jan 2, 2006

"It's good to see you Karthik".....

September 6.2009... 08.25 hours

I was dressed well when I walked downstairs, a couple of friends who were our batchmates surrounded me when I went forward as majority of the crowd diverted their attention towards us..... with so much of nerveousness creeping up I reached Priya....
"It's goo to see you Karthik"... she hasn't chaged at all

May 4, 2006

"Priya!.. it's time for me to admit this... I think you know this... I am in love with you!".... She realized I stammered when telling this... that exposed the little bit of hesitation I had...
“I never expected this from you Karthik… and that was why you were special for me”... I could sense more from her eyes... I realized that it wasn't the right time to engage the conversation further. Breaking the silence, she spelled "We had something special between us, but I couldn't give it a name, I'd like to be as it is.. It was beautiful...hope you understand me better"....
That was the first night when she didn't receive a reply for her Good Night message!...

September 6, 2009... 08.35 hours

I was the one in this world who could read Priya's eyes... those two drops lingering to drench her cheeks were triggering a couple of drops in mine.... All I could do is to proudly smile on her and turn towards the photographer.

April 30, 2007

"I'll miss you a lot Karthick.... I cant forget the moments we lived together...You've been there as what you were and I feel there will be no one else who could have done this... I had observed you swolling your emotions at times when you want to express....I think I am in love with you too... not now... since the day you realized it!... I donno whether that feeling is called love...I don't know what I want and what I need to do... all I knew is my parents will never allow this!....she shattered. It was a new feeling…
There was a moment of silence…When in love I've always felt silence is a wonderful language to speak… but for the first time it was hurting equivalently and it was hurting both!.....

September 6, 2000... 09.10 hours...

It was the time when the drops from both of our eyes rolled off, when finally Priya held hand of mine!.. all the two year long struggled to convience our parents have paid off!... today we were able to begin a new life which we dreamt for... It happened!....

please provide your feedback on the story!.. thanks...
