The One

“What if she says no?” he thought, as he stood on one knee in front of the girl of his dreams.

It was going to be a simple answer.

Yes or no.

But, he seriously doubted his ability to process any piece of information as of then. At intense moments, the thin line between flying and falling gets blurry. The fear of the latter always trumps the prospects of hope for the former.

She always spoke about love being the only thing that transcended space and time. He laid down his faith on that very love and hoped it was enough. They’ve been in love for as long as he remembered. What are these silly doubts then? He always trusted her. Why not now? Even though none of it made any sense, he still couldn’t shake the fear. He wondered how silly he must look. A grown man trembling with fear. Perhaps she’ll take me for a coward. After what felt like ages she finally looked like she was about to say something..  that was when the trembling got worse.

It took him long enough to realize he wasn’t really trembling. He was being woken up.

“Up sleepy head! You promised me some brunch, remember?”

Seven years of marriage and he still couldn’t believe she’d said yes.
