She: I know you don’t really like calling me that, but I love saying that to you again and again. My baby. It’s been years since we’ve known each other. A few less since we’ve been best friends, a little lesser number since we’ve been sweethearts and a few even less number of years of being termed as a married couple. I still remember the day you proposed I said I need time to think and finally the day I said yes. But you know which one is my favourite day with you?
It’s the one sitting in that chilled restaurant ordering our regular Manchurian dish when you took out that crumbled piece of paper from your laptop bag, put that on the table almost smearing it with Manchurian gravy and explained to me with great detail about how much loan we’ll have to take to buy our own house, what furniture we would buy, how much it would cost you and how much should we be spending on our wedding. Yes, baby, that was my favourite day with you. That was the first day that gave me a glimpse of our being with each other forever. So many magical moments have been shared since that day, isn’t it?
She: Remember, the day we signed those loan papers, when you were nervous about how we would repay and I was super excited about having a home to call my own. My God, the way you got tired of the furniture shopping spree. But, I was decorating our house for the first time, how could I have not been excited?
He: Jia, will you let me speak?
She: And now since I am on a truth telling mission, let me tell you a secret. You know whenever you hug me from the back and get all naughty when I am kneading the dough so that I cannot use my hands to push you and I always crib and get all angry on you. You know what, I actually cherish those moments. Aaand.. I purposely wear all those deep-back dresses.
He: Jia, listen to me atleast !!
She: You listen to me baby. You know what a big Bollywoodish romantic I am! It is under the influence of those movies that I don’t ever keep your towel in the bathroom. So that you would call me to give the towel to you and you could pull me inside. And I so hate it, when you remember to take your towel with you while going for the bath.
He: Jia, listen to me for god sake! Jia, we are not married. We broke up just a few days after that restaurant time. None of the things that you have said have actually happened. You are living your life with me in your head. The doctors are right, you need medication.
She: You know what, I just love living my days with you.
