Games Cupid Plays

Ira was walking through the crowd as if in trance.What she just witnessed was too painful. Before today she know the position of heart somewhat vaguely from the biology books. Now she can tell anybody the exact point of the centre of the pain... it hurts .

Shekhar was laughing with Shamita ... looking absolutely happy ! Too much.
She adores Shekhar and is sure that he too has feelings for her. She has seen in his eyes,that long look he sometimes give ...only to her ... and that special smile which lit up his face on seeing her enter the gate .Many times she has spied his eyes searching her face, returning again and again to her. And he watches the door from which she usually emerges after the 10:30 class.

And now Shamita is flashing her perfect white teeth, giggling and fluttering her fake eyelashes at him .. Ira has to think fast . The pain she is feeling is unbearable and proof enough not to doubt her feelings for Shekhar. 

Her chain of thoughts was disturbed when suddenly a boy rushed past her,colliding with her and her legs felt wobbly from the impact. Ira sat on the pavement to collect her thoughts. In front of her, big heart shaped balloons of red colour were flowing secured to a door handle by long strings.She realised with a jolt  that Valentine's Day is arriving.
She sat bolt upright "Voila! a plan ...a plan to express her feelings to her crush. "

Ira became excited. She had  an idea and she is going to execute it. She will propose to her crush... and leave the rest to destiny.

The evening arrived and Ira was ready with her plan .Shamita had publicised the fact that Shekhar and she are going to the Brite's, his favourite place with light music and a calm ambience. Ira was a bit nervous as almost half of their college would be there. 


Source : Ira chose this dress !Daring for her.
She arrived before time.After a wait which seemed like eons, Shekhar came, with his entourage in tow.Shamita was looking ethereal in a light pink and white ensemble. Ira's heart sank.But Shekhar was looking for someone.Shekhar was expecting her to be there as he had hinted about it . His searching look gave her strength and she suddenly felt at ease in her bright red dress.

While Shekhar was still looking ill at ease, the waiter escorted him to the reserved table,under a secluded canopy of climbers and dangling flowers and placed a bouquet on the table. Everything was going according to plan. Shamita was looking slightly skeptical and was clinging to Shekhar's arm. A lovely card embossed with Shekhar's name in his favourite blue followed. Shamita's smile died on her lips.

Shekhar was staring blankly at his name embossed 'beautiful in blue and gold'.He was thinking what is going on ? when a huge metal trolley started moving towards the Gazebo. It stopped some feet short. Dark velvet drapes were hanging around it making it impossible to see the structure on the top .Suddenly , lights went dim , the curtains fell and a huge glass casket can be seen on the top of the trolley.Its door opened, a scenery of waterfall appeared. It seemed vaguely familiar.
Like the pages from a life size note book, another page turned and on it was a written a poem , HIS poem.. Shekhar wondered from where this poem came here... when he was alerted with a jerk...a silky soft voice was crooning the lines " ... moments we spent together.... "
Shekhar's head was reeling .... who is this girl giving life to his words ?
.....has touched our souls forever...  "
 The third page opened.A girl draped heavily by sheer red, sequined flowing robes was standing in the atrium , singing his poem ... in a deep red gown and long chandeliers, she  looked breathtaking ..
Somebody from somewhere lowered  the pedestal.The diva descended and Shekhar got the shock of his life.


Soource It was romantic
 "IRA ! Oh Dear Holy ..... " his words were drowned as Ira came near .. she was looking every inch a Diva which he thought she was not. That simple,sweet Ira,the proper Ira ...his Ira .. can be so bold and zany ! He was bewildered.

And suddenly he felt happy. Grateful ... He loved Ira the way she was but was exhilarated to see her candour and chutzpah . She can be zany and lovely,sensible and fun....

By now Ira has come really close . The song was over . Ira extended her satin gloved hand and absentmindedly, Shekhar took it .Ira guided her to the centre of the manicured lush green lawn.From somewhere a soft music started playing.
SOURCE :Their hearts beat as one.

Their bodies were moving in tandem when Ira asked Shekhar "Will you be my Valentine tonight and f.... "
Her words were silenced as Shekhar placed a finger on her ruby lips and said, "...forever and ever after ."

And he sealed his words with love. 
Applause broke, champagne corks shot up and confetti covered the floor. The moon beamed and the stars shone down on the lovebirds.
It was perfect .

    Very romantic and quite a painstaking effort by Ira.
    P.S- I sincerely hope Shekhar dude is worth all those efforts.
