He: Thanks for coming Susan at such a short notice.
She: What’s wrong Hugh? Why did you call me here?
He: Susan, I need to tell you something now.
She: *raising an eyebrow* Now??!!
He: *serious tone and face* Yes! Extremely serious!
She: Are you having some of those pre- kind of jitters?
He: No, no! *shaking his head* It’s not that! Listen to me Susan, carefully!
She: *worried face* Look at me. Tell me what it is!
He: *turning his face to her* I can’t do this!
She: *extremely shocked* What are you talking about Hugh?
* stares at him and notices his expression* Oh! You’re really serious?
He: Yes Susan. I’m very sure! I don’t think I’m ready for it still!
She: Hmmmmmm! *a serious thoughtful face she makes*
Suddenly a devious smile spreads on her face.
She: *Thinking longer* Well what do I do now? I can’t let this dress and all arrangements go waste.
*fluttering eye lashes and pondering over* In that case, let me check on your best friend. What’s his name? Yeaaaaaah… Chris! I’m sure he’d be more than ready to take the vows with me.
He: *the suppressed smile escapes and a shock fills his face* What????
She: Yes, that’s perfect! I’ll ask him to marry me!
She collected the white laced folds of her bridal gown and ran on her heels! Shouting loudly…
She: Catch me if you can, Hugh. Or Chris wins the bride! You don’t mess with me on my wedding day!
With a new found energy he ran behind her. His plan to get her backfired. That’s what he loved in her. She was unpredictable. He knew what trouble he was getting into, when he’d stand at the aisle and say, “I do”!
P.S. I had written this a long time ago….. Naaaah not years ago maybe a few months ago! Thought to share it again.. Might just bring some smiles!!
Lots of love and best wishes!
Stay happy and blessed all.
