Finally…it’s US.


“Yes”. Now THAT is a magical word. It transforms two individuals into one couple. From you and me it becomes US.
I am riding the wave of joy in life right now. Touchwood.

It all happened on the night of 20th September. It came as an expected surprise. Yes, I know it sounds strange but that is what it was. A nearly eight month long wait came to an end. My little princess…little T said yes.

The story is long and I wouldn’t like to give you all the details because some of them are meant only for her and me to know and understand. Hence I will tell you what I think I can and should. Nearly three months ago, I asked her out. The answer was a polite but firm and flat NO. I hit the dead end. But as I always have believed, hope is what sustains life. So I was hopeful.

I was like that ant climbing up the ant hill. Slow and time consuming. Many times when I thought I had scaled the entire height finally, there was something that resulted in a setback. I had to start again. The reasons were genuine and the wait was painful. But then…so many things remained unsaid…
But it was somewhere that flickering hope that kept me going. God does exist and now I am sure he likes me. I may not be his favourite but he likes me for sure. And I thank him every bit for this joy.

Anyway…moving on…there were times when I thought I had lost it all and was back to square one but then, I was determined and as the wise ones have said, love can be the greatest motivation. So it indeed was. She is my strength and the strongest support I have. She is the biggest joy I have in life. Touchwood again. Anything for her.

Laughter, stupid jokes and anecdotes, tears, happiness…we shared a little of everything as friends but I wanted more. I wanted to belong to this girl and wanted her to belong to me. I wanted to tell her what that little princess meant to me. I wanted to tell her how much I loved her. But she did want a relationship then. So that was that. Conversations gained momentum and so did my emotions.

Then came the 20th of September. I spoke to her and then started for home. She had told me that she would think and give me her decision by the end of that. I was in a hurry to reach home. So I zoomed past trucks, trailers, cars and other bikes. And reached home. There was no network on my phone. Christ!! I searched for the network and as soon as I got off my bike I had a message coming in from my little angel. It was a one line message which held the key to the greatest joy I have ever known. That one line said much more than an entire page. It said everything I wanted to hear. I couldn’t believe my eyes so I pinched myself and slapped myself real hard to ensure that I wasn’t in dreamland. I wasn’t! Yippppeeeeeeeeeeeee…
I didn’t know what to do. I felt like screaming out to the world. I wanted to jump…scream…howl…shout…run…jump again…dance (and I did do a little jig)…
That one word meant more to me than anything else ever has meant. Just want to say that I love her with every bit of the emotion I can muster and I hope this stays happy and smiling always. I want to grow old with her and walk the roads of life holding her hand forever...

Pray for US. Please. Thanks!
And Amen…

Adios.
