Life is not about waiting for the storms to pass ...
Its about learning to dance in the rain!!!
There are many things in life that will catch your eye
but only a few will catch your heart... Pursue those

This is my small effort to make you smile for a while...

Dreamy night...


Fragrance of the scented candles had filled the room. Bed linen shined to its best, beautiful flowers looked really fresh and were all over the cot. Apart from giggling of her friends who just dropped her in to this room there was a kind of enchanting silence that had filled this room. But her heart was beating unusually loud that she could hear them.

Yes this is the very first night Theertha will be spending with the person whom she has whole heartily accepted to be her man. Every girl dreams and will have mixed emotions about this night, so was she, was she naïve, was she shy, or was she secretly craving for this night, she was not able to judge her feelings.

The marriage rituals happened that morning had drained all her energy but when mom whispered in her ears that she had to prepare to be with her husband starting tonight as per their horoscope, there was sort of enthusiasm in her. Theertha then decides to prepare herself to make her first impression. But the question was how and what to do to impress him!

Theertha refreshes herself with a soothing evening hot water bath. Before which she massages her soft skin in scented oil. She chose the body cream of his favorite lavender fragrance as it ran down her body she smiled imagining him. She chooses Saree of his favorite color. Her friends then helped with mild make up, light jewelries and a good hair do. Giggling and teasing of friends went on till they were called.

She was now all dressed and sitting in one corner of that neatly dressed bed, she could hear her sisters and friends teasing laughing and negotiating with her husband for their gifts on this special occasion. She knew this would be the reason for his delay.

She was very much waiting for him. Yes she started relating to all those romantic movie songs, she bit her blushful lips mild to be prepared and was imagining all the romantic things that could happen. She closed her eyes feeling shy about the questions she had in mind where will she get her first kiss what would impress him more is it her gentle curves or may be her soft cheeks or her beautifully pedicured soft feet for which she had carefully chosen a beautiful color, will he hold her tight so much so that she will suffocate to breathe and still not complain but want him to do it? Will he kiss the neatly done mehandi which had turned bright red in his love? Will she get to rest on his chest? Will he like the fragrance of lavender oil on her? Will he tease her with his little bites? She could feel goosebumps imagining his warm breathe. She was going crazy, Theertha whole heartedly wanted him. She smirked thinking that no man can imagine that woman’s secret desires are so beautifully painted.

Suddenly she hears a loud continuous bang on the door and she heard her mom calling them both to take bath and come down soon for today’s rituals. She was not able to relate to anything, it was already morning and she couldn’t remember what had happened to her beautiful First Night? And to top it all she was beside her husband he was holding her with all his care. She mildly shook and was very ashamed to ask him what had happened last night? Her smart husband planted his second kiss on her and told her that she was deep asleep when he entered the room and he couldn’t disturb his beautiful bride sleeping and all he did was to plant his first kiss and hold her in his caring arms to comfort her more.

Though all her efforts to impress him were of no use without any effort he had impressed her with his care, affection and the true love he had for his life partner. She fell in love instantly with this person and continued to be passionately in love.

Well… I have no words. Sometimes silence is a great compliment. Breathtakingly beautiful is your writing. You have painted the emotions and feelings so vividly and so beautifully. Extremely touching and it made me smile in happiness all the way. The way you have portrayed such delicate emotions is fascinating. And the ending was so pure and beautiful as well. Superb writing.

Adhi Das said...

nicely written with all simplicity yet gorgeous!!!keep writing dear Ramya...GOD LOVE U

Ashwini C N said...

The way it was written is simply beautiful. The emotions of the newly wed bride, the roller coaster emotions and thoughts that would have been going through in her mind. Just awesome :-)

What I liked about this was, you have highlighted that it is the small things which we do casually that matter a lot. She took so much care to impress him, but he casually impressed her even more.

Wonderful :-)

Ramya said...

@Ash: Thanks dear

@Adhi: Thanks thanks tons Adhi, for all the encouragement and blessings you have showered on me! your words means a lot. Keep encouraging

Ramya said...

@Ashwini: Oh my god :d such nice words from you thanks a lot dear, Yeah I really wanted to celebrate the little things we do... I wanted the world to know all the care and interest we take to impress the man we love. :D
But always True love triumphs always!!!
Thanks buddy Thanks a lot
