Prabal and I had made big plans for our first anniversary as a couple. Since ours was a long-distance relationship, we had never had sex yet. So, we planned to spend a weekend together at a resort to celebrate this milestone in our relationship. In fact, this was the gift he’d asked me… he just wished to spend a weekend with me. After giving some thought to his demand I agreed and we booked a room in the resort.
While our initial plan was to meet each other at the resort on Saturday morning, Prabal called me on Friday afternoon asking me what time I would get free from work. Turned out he had come to my city on Friday morning itself. So I left office early, went to my flat to pack my bags and we checked in the hotel on Friday night instead of Saturday morning.
I had expected to get a tight hug from him the moment we’d enter our room but we both were rather quiet. He seemed more nervous than I was and we both sat at the two corners of the bed in silence. After a while we started talking but were still sitting at the two ends of the bed. Then I mumbled, “At least give me a hug,” and he heard me. He came closer and gave me a tight hug and I could feel the nervousness between us vanish. I felt like all my stress had gone and I just smiled as I felt safe in the warmth of his arms.

Although, we spent three nights and two days together, we did not have sex. We made out a lot but it didn’t go beyond that. On the last day I caught terrible cold and came down with fever, I couldn’t sleep at all that night. Looking at my situation, we decided to stay there for one more night.
We went to a chemist nearby to get medicines and while the man in the shop was packing my medicines I pointed towards condoms and winked at Prabal. He smiled and asked the guy to add a pack of condom to our bill.
After I took my medicines, we were watching TV and we started making out. I told him to take my clothes off, a little surprised to hear this, Prabal in fact asked me twice if I said what he heard. And I answered “Yes” everytime. With a little hesitation the poor guy did what I told him. And then, I told him that we should have sex. But to my surprise he refused to do so. I was shocked to hear him say no and asked him the reason.
He said, “Because I know you would feel guilty about this tomorrow. You are heavily sedated right now due to the medicines and you are not in your proper senses. I don’t want to do this while you are in such a condition.”
My ego was hurt and I got really angry with him. I just blurted, “I don’t want to talk to you,” and slept in the bed facing away from him. He lied next to me and held me as I fell asleep. I remember him waking up in the middle of the night telling me to put on my clothes.

The next morning, instead of me apologising to him, it was he who said sorry to me. He said that he didn’t mean to hurt me. I stood there looking at him with tears in my eyes and it was that moment when I fell in love with him. Here was a guy who was sensible enough to not take advantage of a girl, a guy who didn’t want to do anything that would make his girl feel ashamed of herself.
I am so proud to have him in my life. People often blame a woman’s clothes for provoking men but what happened that night with me proves that a man’s mentality is what really matters. I am happy to know that men like Prabal exist in this world.
