She blew him a kiss and walked back towards us. I saw the love in his eyes as he saw her walk away.
They’d known each other for more than a year now. Everyone could see he loved her. But she was still in denial.
I whispered into her ear, “He loves you, doesn’t he?”
“What about you, do you love him?”
“I dunno, I haven’t made my mind up yet”
“Why? What’s wrong? I thought you like him too”
“I do like him...but I need some time to think before I decide whether he’s Mr.Right or not.”
“How long does that usually take?”
“I dunno. But when I do, I’ll know it.”
Three months later, on Valentine’s, he sent her a huge bouquet. She gleamed as she took it from him and gave him a sweet little hug.
He had only recently gotten himself a new job. It wasn’t one that was very highly-paying, but it sure was decent.
I whispered to her again, “So, I guess you’ve made up your mind at last.”
“No I haven’t! For heaven’s sakes! You asked me only a few months back.”
“And you haven’t decided yet?”
“No...It’s a very important decision. How can I take such an important decision without thinking well about it”
“Guess you’re right”
A year later, I met them at a party. They never left each other’s side. They only had eyes for each other. They held hands throughout, and if I hadn’t to yell out loud to them, they’d probably never notice me.
I whispered to her, “Well???”
“Naw...I’m still thinking”
I didn’t pursue the matter any further and bade them both a goodbye.
Two weeks later, her facebook profile said she was “committed”
But the album, aptly titled “My engagement snaps” showed her with someone else.
When I met her, I whispered to her again, “So, how’d you meet him?”
“Met him almost two weeks ago. Our parents set us up. Guess what? He’s a green card holder!! I knew I’d find Mr.Right some day”
