Shakespeare Idioms Used: Much ado about nothing, My salad days
….I remember the blushing me not even able to look meet eyes. So forget asking him to wear me the ring!
I had to leave for work in two days and he came to drop me at the station. It was evening and I knew we both were feeling a little strange or I don’t know..may be sad? I had to board the bus in another ten minutes and he took me for a stroll. We walked..he blabbering something..and I was lost in thoughts. I knew I would miss him though it was only few hours I had spent in four months to the man I got engaged to. There were only few words exchanged between us in these months. And believe me when I say they were all formal talks! 🙂
While he went on and on about some random topic. I stopped and looked into his eyes. He was flabbergasted. I took out the ring from my pocket and asked him to put it on my finger. He was stunned, skipping a few heartbeats. Silence prevailed for a few seconds and he did what I asked of him. He smiled. When I was about to board the bus, he gave me a warm hug and did he kiss me? I guess he did..on my forehead. 🙂 I knew I had fallen for him.
And now looking at my ring, I smile. My Mom was right, after all.
The guests have all left…They were curious to find out his name hidden in my Mehendi motifs. It was fun! And I found myself blushing and shying away at his thoughts.
Guess they were all happy.. But I can hear Dad saying that a few were complaining for not serving non-veg food. They have been getting very upset about it, but as far as I’m concerned it’s all much ado about nothing.
I don’t know whether I should to be happy or sad. My salad days are coming to an end. At least that is what people expect of me- to leave behind my innocence and impulsiveness. Will I change? Should I change?
