Life: Part II

Hey, I just had this thought in my mind”

              “What?”

“I am 30, settled. I have worked my ass off for almost 7 years now..... I need a break!”

               “Yeah, I bet you do!”

"I think I should get married”

              *Oh My God. Will he pop the question?*
               “Really?”

“Yeah, let’s meet tonight. I need to sort a lot of things before that”

               "Like?”

“Oh, not on the phone. See you at Karims’, 8.30?”

               “Ok”

               *And people said I was a fool to wait. It’s all worth it. Thank you God, finally it is happening*

____________________________________________________________________________
“You look great”

              “You too”

“Ok, settle down”

              “So what are the things that you want to sort out?”

              *Hands in his pocket? Geeee…..The ring? I don’t want this…but I so want this*

“Anything wrong?”

               “No”

“Are you comfortable?”

               “Yeeaahhhh”

“So, I was thinking that I’d need your help in withdrawing my finances. And help me finalise an apartment”

                “Yaah”

“What ya? You are in this business and I want you to suggest me a place which would be the best. 2/3 bhk, maximum 60 lakh. An Architect friend should be of some use ;)”

                “Ya, ok”

“What ok?”

                  “I’ll let you know the details in a day or two”

“What’s wrong, Mira? Everything alright?”

                    “Absolutely. So what next?”

“This girl. My mum showed me her photograph. She’s a doctor. Physiotherapist. I think I will settle down with this match.”

                     *Kidding, are you?*

"And everything is going as per my plan. Engagement in 3 months and wedding in another 6 months. So I kind of have almost a year to buy an apartment. I have spoken to this lady twice or thrice. She’s sweet.”

                     *gulp*
                      “Really? Great!”
                      *gulp*

“So, parents are happy, grandma’s happy and I am sure you are happy too”

                      “Of course. So now it’s Life: Part 2, huh?”

"Yeah, like we’d always discussed. I hope this is as beautiful as part 1 was. The ups and downs have been satisfying and I am game for it yet again.”

                      “Am sure you’ll do well.”

“And you are 30 too. Speed up girl and finalise a guy. If you have so many conditions, then…sllurrrrrpppp…..this soup is f***ing hot…. Water…”

                       *Conditions, yeah!!*

"So, have you considered any new matches?”

                        “Yeah. But they don’t fit in my conditions.”

"Ok, today finally tell me what your conditions are? You’ve never told me”

                         *smile*
                         *smile*
                         *smile*
                         *tears*
                         *tears*

                         “What’s wrong with the sizzlers? The fumes are hurting my eyes”

                         *smile*
