I still remember the day I saw him at college, those sharp black eyes piercing into mine. The smile was the one that would drive any girl crazy. Even if he was not that handsome, he was way different from the rest of the people I have met. There was something in him which attracted me towards him. Later that day I was introduced to him by a common friend. I don’t know what had happened to me I couldn’t utter a word to him all I did was a smile.
After that day whenever he saw me we smile at each other, but I didn’t have the courage to talk to him because there were butterflies in my stomach. There were times when he caught me staring all I did was look away from him. At last, the day came, our department was hosting a program. All the junior and senior were mixed and made into a team and was assigned different tasks. Fortunately, we were in a team, I knew this was my best chance to talk to him and I can’t miss this. I kept all my shyness away and went to speak to him. That day we spoke for a long time. After that program, whenever we use to meet at college we used to talk.
As days passed by, we exchanged our numbers, started meeting after college. Little did I know I fell badly for him. The fact was he also felt the same for me and both of us knew that, but none of us was ready to speak about it. I felt all his love through his words and gestures. He took care of me and loved me like I was his own child. Finally, one weekend we went out to a movie and during the interval, he knelt on his knees and said “I love you, I know you wanted to hear this from past few days but I only got the courage to say it today. Will you marry me and make me the happiest person in this universe?” After I heard this all I could was say yes and after that, I hugged him tight and cried. Still, after few years when we speak of it, it brings us a flood of memories.
