Skipping to the part where I met him. It was an alley, at the end of which was him. And I actually quickened my pace and we hugged. Now, all of this may seem surreal but it was true. And we were kinda meeting on valentine's day. So, it was his question when we entered the rooftop club, 'Are you my date for today?, because Idk if I am.' Neither did I, so I just answered with another question, 'Do you want me to be?' And he smiled.
Taking the cue, he further asked, 'Do you drink?' and I being the Farhan Akhtar fan that I am asked him, 'If I get drunk, kya tum mere nashe me hone ka faayda uthaoge?' He smiled again and said no. To which I re-enacted, 'Toh fir kya faayda!' But jokes apart, I was on a resolution of not drinking this year and I didn't know then that it was about to be broken.
I didn't want to eat much before the wedding but I ended up eating more than him and while talking, it so happened that his best friend used to be my major bigtime crush in 11th. And I bet no one knew how we knew each other. So, we had a good mutual friend now! He drank wine, which he had never tried before because I insisted and he wanted not to displease me. A complete bad boy trying to be a gentleman picture! But I was enjoying it. So much that I ordered the wine a second time. Even then I was slowly enjoying the new feeling. And I think I was getting drunk on him. He would have realised that because it was evident. My smile was giving away and to make things worse, I texted my sister, ' I am having a great time, Don't want to leave here'
And he took the phone from my hand to click a photo and that's when he read the notification 'I am having a great time too!'
I was embarassed but he was smiling. Again!
It was kinda cute but also crazzzyyyy! He too hot dimples from smiling.
And we had a bad but smiling selfie taken. And I had to leave, because it was already late and the wedding venue was waiting. And he, being the gentleman did a great thing, took ample single photos of me.
I am a people pleaser, as you might have recognised, but not obvious, so I took his photos without him realising and yeah it was a wrap for the night.
But I was not ready to leave him yet, so took him to a pastry shop where we had dessert and bought some for his friends as well for their trek. Idk why I was doing this. He wasn't my date or my boyfriend but I felt like I wanted to do this. He took me for a ride on his bike where he dropped me to my home. And we again hugged goodbye.
I know it could have been more but remember sometimes this is better. Because it is innocent. And I think that was a perfect ending.
Now I had to rush to the wedding after being drunk, for which I got ready in the next 5 mins. Timed!
The wedding was in Sunny's Resort.
It had many smaller villa type huts and a rooftop resort with a terrace pool and the night to enjoy where sister again bought me a drink from another restaurant which we visited after the sangeet because it felt kinda weird and forbidden for two girls to drink free in a family wedding.
And then we danced a lot.
Everyone was enjoying.
I loved it.
