I was a girl who was extremely content with her life. I was engaged to the love of my life, had a stable job and there was nothing more I could have asked for. My happiness knew no bounds since my 5-year relationship materialized and soon we were getting married. Now, even both the families had started to mingle with each other well. I felt like the luckiest girl in the world until the day I went to meet my friend.
Since my marriage was a few months away, I was still in Delhi pursuing my job. One fine day I made a plan to visit my close friend Aditi. It was a weekend so she insisted on going to a party. I agreed to it thinking that it’ll be a good change since I had had a busy week. We made a plan with her friends to visit one of the clubs in the city. It was Saturday night, the club was packed and we were enjoying ourselves. Soon after, a couple and a guy joined us. He was introduced to me as Arjun. Aditi’s friends already knew them so we ended up playing some drinking games together and I didn’t realize when I got a little tipsy. I started to dance with Arjun and at the peak of the night, Arjun asked me to go on a drive with him. I agreed without really thinking about it. Aditi and her other friends did not realize when we stepped out. We went for a long drive and started talking about life in general. There was soft music playing in the car and the weather was as amazing as it could ever be. I went up from his car’s sun roof and I felt a strange feeling of love in the air. Suddenly, he stopped the car, hitting the break and I fell into his lap. He apologized for it. I don’t know what happened in that moment but I asked him to not say anything and we shared a warm kiss. For a moment I forgot everything and felt like this is my world and this is where I want to be. I took my seat after the kiss and realized it was almost dawn. Checking my phone, I saw that I had 20 missed calls from Aditi and just like that, I was back to my senses. I am engaged, I thought, I have a fiancé and all my actions right now had been completely inappropriate. I began to freak out. He asked me to calm down, telling me it’s no big deal and eventually and dropped me home.
I narrated the incident to Aditi and told her how guilty I was of my actions. I had cheated on my fiancé - someone whom I loved with all my heart. There was a lot of confusion in my mind. What did I want? Why did I do that? I decided to keep it a secret from my fiancé and the very next day I requested him to come and meet me. As soon as I saw him I hugged him tightly. I realized that I find true happiness in his arms and this is my favourite place to be. What I had done had been a mistake in all sense. Was I willing to sacrifice something so amazing over one kiss?
I know I did him wrong but I could do him no right by breaking his heart and telling him. I decided against it and I don’t hate my decision. We are now getting married in two months and I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with him.
