Kavya was my senior in school. She was also my best friend. We lost touch after she moved to another city for college. After joining a common Facebook group I realized she was getting married soon. My birthday was also fast approaching, so we decided to meet up.
So, here comes the hero of my story.
Kavya’s cousin Sunny added me on Facebook and I accepted his request because Kavya used to bring him up in our conversations. When we were children, he had also visited my house a couple of times. So one day, he just initiated a conversation on FB and we kept talking. We have known each other for seven years but haven’t met because he was in Chennai and I lived in Bengaluru. Kavya’s marriage was finally an opportunity to meet each other as adults. Needless to say, we were both very excited.
When I reached the airport, he personally came to receive me. Although he was quite prompt on messages, I realized he was soft-spoken in real life. I kept turning and looking at him the whole duration of the drive.
On the sangeet night, I asked Sunny to dance with me and after he refused my offer several times, I started dancing with another guy to see if it would affect him at all. After the event, I went out to the balcony to get some fresh air and he came to me with a plate of food. I didn’t want to eat at all, but he insisted because I hadn’t had anything the whole day. And I did.
Soon, in a matter of a few moments, there was some kind of confusion and because it was getting late and we girls were expected to go back to our hotels. And right then Sunny turned to me and said, “If you would like to dance me, I would love a second chance.”
He went on to say how I was his childhood crush and how lucky he feels that we finally got to meet again. And then he kissed my forehead and said that he loved me.
“Will you marry me?”
I was so surprised that all I could do was nod my head and say yes.
That day was three years ago. Now we are married with two twin sons who have their father’s best traits. And I couldn’t be more grateful.
