My heartbeats had gone faster. I tried to hide my emotions behind the luster of my eyes and stash them in the safest place – heart. It has been my best friend ever since I realized that I needed someone to converse with me every day and obliterate those conversations, those secrets, slowly within itself. And the heart fitted, perfectly.
The place appeared quieter than before, or perhaps my senses had gone numb. It was the first time for me. Had seen it for my friends, cheered them and misled them to do countless amateurish things that I could never do in my case. Quite awkwardly, I was feeling the nervousness traversing the whole body and not only the mind. Perhaps I was afraid of the unknown. If someone is falling off the roof, and during those bloodcurdling moments, what that person feels, I found myself in a similar position.
I had my first cup of coffee, then second and then the third one. I had to stop at the count of three as soon as I realized that I was getting tranced with the excess of caffeine. What can I do – I wondered. Then a thought occurred to me – let’s just face it. What will happen later, who knows. Why to think about the conclusion. Because most of the times, over-thinking spoils those precious moments that deserve to be cherished. So I decided to wait, and wait calmly this time. And I did.
Whatever happened next changed everything in my life and I have something to tell you from my experience – Meeting your prospective wife for the first time is one of the toughest things in this world.
