Dil Ki Deal (Story 2)
It was my bae's birthday! The first birthday since we were together! I wanted to make it special. I didn't want to gift him something materialistic that he will use and throw away. I wanted my gift to linger around him so that he always remembers me.
After spending 9 months with him, I knew of his likes and dislikes.
He was a bit upset those days, because he was telling his family about me and no one agreed on our relationship. He was a Hindu Brahmin and I a Muslim.
This time I followed my heart. I wanted to make him feel ultra special and I wanted to do so not just by gifts/gestures but by words too. I took the plunge and what followed was MAGIC! He was extremely elated to see what I made for him!
Heart’s callings lead you to a right path. Listening to your heart helps in decision making.
This time gifts were not on priority though I ordered a Davidoff Cool Water for him. And guess what! Snapdeal delivered it well in time.
I decided to surprise him with little notes from time to time on the D day. Also a final letter at the end of the day. I made a cardboard box, cut colorful chits and on each one started writing.
On the chits I wrote small messages like ~
"I love personalized gifts. You are very dear to me, hence I invested time for you in preparing this. You are my happiness, a very special blessing God has given to me. I’m so excited about spending my whole life with you; spending each special day with all the love in our hearts. I love you so much and will always love until forever. That's a promise that I’ll surely keep forever in my heart. "
"When in love, the world seems like the most beautiful place ever and everything feels brand new. Looking at things now, I am glad to say that it was one of the best decisions of my life to have chosen you, for you bring so much joy into my life. I know now that I would never want to part ways with you or ever let you go."
"There are a million ways to tell you that I love you, but it would never suffice for, a love like ours cannot be expressed easily. I love the way you have integrated yourself so effortlessly in my life, it is no longer I or me, I know now that it will forever be "we". I cannot imagine a better way to have spent my days than with you. I get the taste of heaven when with you. You have exposed me to finer things in life. Thanks for that! I thank your mom for giving me 'you'."
"We both know that life is not always fair. We know that there will come a time when we have to face trials in our relationship, but we will overcome because our love will see us through. My destiny is in you."
"This one's a bit cheesy. But want to see you blush! No one in this world has tasted nectar, except me. Your kisses are my nectar! *winks*"
And immediately I saw him looking at me with a sly smile! How good it is to be in love and predict their future actions because you know them too well!
"I wanted to tell you that wherever I am, whatever happens, I’ll always think of you, and the time we spent together, as my happiest time. I’d do it all over again, if I had the choice. No regrets! When you're weak and I comfort you, I want to know every shiver of your body. I can deal with your dark sides and what troubles you."
"It is a delight to spend time with you. You are my extended family, a part of me. I wouldn't trade you for anything in this world. I would be lost without you."
"After marriage, I would want to get home ASAP to see my husband! A little piece of my heart is always missing when you are not around. I am madly in love with you. Life is the choices we make - you are a gem, the most beautiful soul; you are my smile. you immortalize me. I don't have words to tell you how much I adore you. You're my home. "
He was smiling throughout! I felt so content in that moment.
In the letter I wrote:
"I want to melt on the floor until I become nothing more than a puddle at your feet. :* Did I tell you this? Yes I crave. I crave for a little more time with you. I wish a little more.. Of appreciating you, a little more of hugging you, a little more of everything little between us. I really wish I get more time with you to tell you how nice that crooked smile looks on your face after you see me after waiting for hours.
How I wish I could put up in words how I want to run to you when you wait for me, give you a warm hug and a kiss, right in the middle of the road. How I wish.. To tell you how awesome as a girl it feels to have a man waiting for you for hours. I don't think any girl is so blessed as I am. Touchwood. I love and respect every little or big thing you do for me. How I wish, it was easy to understand all that was unspoken by me. But sometimes words matter. I know you wait anxiously for words of appreciation and love from me. I know. I can see your eager eyes. I understand all. This little note to let you know you're my Kohinoor and will always be. No one can ever replace that love for you. I Love you and I will cherish that love forever.
I’m so blessed that I have you in my life- my husband, lover, best friend and mentor. What more can I ask? I’m flooded with your love and blown away with your caress. You have all of me. I’m forever yours. Together we will finish this life and look forward to eternity together. Thank you for being a constant support system. Stay happy, always.”
His eyes filled with tears. On asking he revealed since all are upset at his home, no one cared to wish him on his birthday. He felt really special after reading it all. You know, men don't easily cry, but when they do, they are really hurt.
When I handed over the colorful box to him and the perfume, his eyes first fell on the colorful box of chits. With that you can gauge how much personalized gifts are valued over anything materialistic! It was a perfect Dil Ki Deal!
Till today he treasures it and has read them almost zillion times. That makes me feel lucky to have him and you know what? Finally, both our parents have agreed, and we are getting married by the end of 2015!
Follow your heart, it makes you do wonders. This was my Dil Ki Deal – the best till date!
