Mobile vibrated when she was having dinner with her parents. Whatsapp message popped up on the screen. She looked at the message and kept the mobile aside. After having dinner she took the mobile and when into her room. Her room was occupied with people. She looked around and went to the kitchen, even the kitchen was occupied. There were people everywhere. The house was filled with relatives. She couldn’t find any free space in the house. Mean while the mobile was continuously vibrating. She was so irritated and went into the wash room by taking the mobile.
“Hello….. stop calling me….. what’s wrong with you….. no way….. but…. ok…. Wait near the back gate, I will meet you there” she said angrily and cut the phone. She was smiling, laughing and happily spending time with relatives, but deep inside she was tensed. She went to bed waited for everyone to sleep. After an hour she got up and carefully took out her bangles and anklets. Then she slowly step by step went out of the house without making any noise. When she reached the gate her mobile vibrated again, without answering she opened the gate slowly. There he was waiting on the bike.
“Hi, beautiful” he came to her. “Are you crazy, all my relatives are in the house” she yelled but in a low voice. “Nice mehendi” he took her hands and looked at the mehendi design. She didn’t say anything. “Come on, smile” “I am scared and you are asking me to smile” she looked at him. “Why are you scared baby?” he caressed her cheek and asked innocently. “Don’t give me that innocent look, maa will kill me” “no she won’t. I will explain to her, I will say that I missed you” he tried to cool her. “Ok now, bye” “wait, let me look at you, you are looking gorgeous” he was talking to her but she was not listening to him. She was checking her surroundings and also looking at the house. “Hey beautiful, look at me” he pulled her closer. “If any one sees me here with you then I am…..” “Let’s go for a ride” he tried to calm her by looking at her tensed face.
“Have you gone mad, there’s a wedding tomorrow and I am the bride and you are asking me for a ride now” she looked straight into his eyes. “That’s what I am trying to say this was the last time I can take you for a ride like this, after tomorrow you will be Mrs.” He tried to take her out of the gate. “Wait I can’t come outside the gate” she stopped suddenly. “Why? What happened…… is this a border” he asked seriously.
“Yeah at present it’s a border for me, maa said from home that I should directly go to the mandap, can’t go anywhere else” “it’s on the wedding day” “and that’s today its already 2 am,” she said showing the mobile. “Why do you follow….” “I follow the traditions because I love you” she interrupted him. “Ok miss bride I will meet you tomorrow in the mandap, and until then don’t cross the border,” he said while closing the gate. “Byeee Mr. Groom” she winked.
