Chup Chupke

                         Just in case you have been wondering if I ran away and shut this space- No I haven't :)
             The recent dearth in posts can be blamed on my blood sucking college and my very busy other half- S. 
                
          So we are in the 5th year of our relationship and the very famous 5 year itch gets to us sometimes. Like it did 2 weeks back. I was ready to go out of town for a week when something trivial started up and got blown into a major fight between us. So much that I had mentally prepared myself to not talk to S ever.

 2 days away from him- I thought maybe I should wait till he talks to me.
3 days away from him- Ok I will wait till Valentine's Day. If he doesn't talk to me till then , its the end of it! 
4th day I got to know that I will be in his city for full 1 and a half hour (only on the station though) and I m confused!

The angry half- " So what? It's just one and a half hour and anyway the whole family is going to be there. There isn't much that you can do anyway. And you are PISSED OFF! 
The "i-m-mad-but-i-love-him-madly-still" half- " What if things go well and you realise you missed this opportunity just because of your ego? It's Valentine's month and you are about to get what you want the most- To see him! 

So while the bride and groom (What ? Didn't I tell you I went to attend a wedding ? Well that was one of the reasons :P) were posing away for the photographer who thought himself as some big-shot modelling photographer, the ladies busy with very important debate on the design of the silk saree and the men of the group deciding where to party in the evening, I sat all alone battling this very serious question of my life. 

I did what I do when I confused- Give him a mised call :D. I thought - "If he calls back, I will tell him." If he doesn't then I can blame it on him." :P 

He called me back to tell " I m still waiting for you and haven't run off with anyone else, if that's what you are checking"
Couldn't help smiling at that. 
So I told him that I will be in his city the day after and asked him to check the train details and all after I message him the details of my journey. 
He was somewhat unsure of the whole plan. He kept asking how he will meet me in front of everybody (with chances of Mom recognising him). 
If apprehensions were part of my behavior, I wouldn't have made it this far ;) So I told him to be there and rest will be taken care of.

The next 2 days were full of planning. With the help of my two friends I could send him all the details and happenings. I couldn't text him directly so these two friends relayed the messages. I was just a few hours short of seeing him. I couldn't believe the turn of events.
I called him once that day. After that short call I said, "Milte hai kal"
He was still worried and said, "Milte kaise hai?"
I said, "Ok thik hai, dekhte hai kal" :P 
I was as clueless as he was about the whole idea! 

My train was supposed to reach his city at 1:30 and the next train for my city was at 3. So that roughly gave me 1 and a half hour. He messaged me that he would be there my 1:30. Contrary to the tradition of Indian Railways, the train reached dot at 1:30. Not a minute of delay.

I was expecting him to be already waiting in front of my coach so he could not lose me in the crowd. I got down all excited to see a platform with no one around. Once again I gave him a missed call. He texted me, "I will be there in 15 minutes." 
15 minutes! I was worried. In 15 minutes I could reach the furthest platform from the one I was on. I looked around restlessly. What if the entire group decided to wait at some other place? How would I inform him? 
Thankfully the men went to check the next train schedule and asked us to wait at the same place. So we waited for more than 15 minutes there during which I looked as far as my eyes could see. Every approaching male was looked at until he came at a distance close enough to know that it wasn't S. Restlessness now gave way to anger.

The 15  minutes were over. The children in the group were hungry and the ladies went around to buy some snacks for the time being. I was offered snacks but I had no appetite to eat and ended up snapping at one of them. 

The men were back and it was decided that we wait on some other platform (like I worried). I picked up my bags and dragged myself slowly behind them. Being the last one in the group. I was still looking around. 

"Did he find something more important? Would he not come?" I saw myself wondering..

P.S: To be continued is just to keep the post short( as I see it is already getting too long ) and not to keep the readers in suspense. The other part will be up in a short time :D
