There is no fixed time; date or place to fall in love with someone…. The story of Priya and Prateek is a perfect example that a love Story can begin anytime, anywhere. Love is not something you go out and look for, Love finds you, and when it does – ready or not, it will be the best thing to ever happen to you !!
It all happened 3 years ago when they met each other for the first time. When introduced at workplace, they shook hands and a spark was felt deep inside in their hearts as if they were not meeting for the first time – maybe a past mysterious love connection; Prateek was 15years younger to Priya; yet he felt emotionally connected, they both became best friends very soon, sharing each and every details of their personal and professional lives.
On Friendship Day they promised each other that no matter what happens their friendship would last a lifetime. During the festive season Priya used to dress up in traditional wear and Prateek used to shower her with compliments!! Soon, Priya realized that she had begun to spend more time to adorn herself and try to meet him atleast once during the day so that she could listen to his compliments.
Priya was away for some days and they both couldn’t meet or speak to each other, she realized something amiss, when she returned back she confessed “Please Prateek don’t mind – don’t be so close to me, I miss you when we are not together”.
Priya was surprised when Prateek too replied, “I miss you too,” and just walked away.
The whole night Priya couldn’t sleep – she was scared whether she broke her friendship; next day too they didn’t talk at all, but every time they crossed each other, a blushing smile was there on both of their faces. Priya felt hesitant to talk as freely as earlier. In the evening when they traveling in a public transport, Prateek slowly started a conversation – he whispered in her ears, that he had many female friends in his life but he had never been so close to anyone. Priya asked the meaning of “so close”, he kept his hands on her, touched them slowly; and entangled his fingers in hers tightly.
Both were in total bliss – in seventh heaven. Prateek wanted to kiss Priya, she promised to do so the next day. Exchanging cute smileys and kisses over phone, Priya was blushing, excited and eagerly awaiting the next day. The D-Day arrived, Priya wore a simple red coloured cotton saree, but she looked like a newly wedded bride, they had quick frequent interactions during the whole day – no words spoken – only tight hugs and kisses!! They kissed, hugged and made love – completely oblivious to the world around… They were in their own sweet love world !!
Priya is aged around 40years, married, mother to a teenage daughter, juggling office and home smoothly and now even spending quality time with Prateek. They recently celebrated 3 years of their love Anniversary. Three years ago, Priya weighed around 95kg looking dull, frustrated with Life and tired with frequent illness. Now she weighs around 60kg looking younger, feeling fresh and lively – all thanks to Her Love!
Prateek is married too, has a happy family – he divides his time smoothly between his wife and his love. Priya feels she is wrong and wants to break-up with Prateek, but doesn’t have the courage to do so; they both are happy in their own sweet world; sometimes she feels it is just a dream but she has got a reason to live life due to her love…she does not want to wake up from that dream.
Anyone can be madly in Love; plan their present and future and be sure that they will be together one day; but when you are sure that you can never be together; but still continue to be in love with each other – maybe that is what they call True Love.
For the sake of society; Priya has kept her 20year old marriage alive. She is a very good housewife, an ideal daughter-in-law, a good mother and in her professional life too, she is very dedicated, sincere and hard-working.
As time flies; conversations have become deeper – they discuss various topics – social; general knowledge; entertainment; food and lifestyle; travel; literature; music – the list goes on… but when together; they don’t waste time on talk….its only love and love.
Prateek has made Priya to realize her own beauty – see herself through his eyes. Priya cannot imagine where they will be in the years to come; but presently they just want to live love and enjoy.
When you are in Love…Simple things bring them to mind like a pale blue sky, gentle wind or even a storm cloud on the horizon. You open your heart knowing that there’s a chance it may be broken one day and in opening your heart, you experience a love and joy that you never dreamed possible. You find that being vulnerable is the only way to allow your heart to feel true pleasure that’s so real it scares you. You find strength in knowing you have a true friend and possibly a soul mate that will remain loyal to the end. Life seems completely different, exciting and worthwhile. Your only hope and security is in knowing that they are a part of your life.
There comes a point in life when you just love someone, not because they are good or bad or anything really; you just love them, it doesn’t mean you will be together forever; it doesn’t mean you won’t hurt each other; it just means you love them!
