Love You Forever !

Rohit was busy reviewing the weeks TRP ratings on his MacBook, for his latest show on CNN-IBN channel - “The Nation Demands Answers”, that’s when his iPhone rang. He picked up his iPhone lying on his desk and casually looked at the name being display. It was Sushmita, he received the call and said “Hello honey!” Sushmita sounded scared and petrified as she said, “Rohit, please come home. Please, I’m scared; I guess someone has broken into our house.” Rohit was about to ask her to calm down when the call got disconnected.


Rohit called back Sushmita, her phone was ringing but there was no response. He looked at the clock, it was 9 PM, and he usually left for home after his 7 PM show. He was a renowned anchor on television and was known for his no nonsense, straight talks and had grilled many seasoned politicians and bureaucrats during television interviews in his career. He was a seasoned journalist now in his late forties.

He tried calling Sushmita again and this time the phone didn’t ring, he heard a message saying that the phone was switched off. Rohit shut his Macbook and shoved it into the bag, grabbed his blazers and ran out of his cabin. He hurried to the lift but as he was about to reach the lift the doors closed. He was in no state of mind to wait patiently for the lift, he ran down the stairs to the basement. He didn’t look around for his driver, he had the spare keys, and so he got into the car and drove past his driver onto the main road.

As he was driving back home Sushmita’s face kept flashing before his eyes. He reminisced how she had made a pass at him saying that he still looks sexy and handsome with his salt and pepper hair, when he was getting ready in the morning. The smile on her face as she waved at him when he left for work this morning kept flashing in his mind.

Rohit had never driven as fast as he was driving right now. He didn’t care about the speed breakers or the traffic signals; all he wanted was to get home as early as he could. On his way home he kept trying Sushmita’s number, but it was still switched off. He tried reaching her friend Amita who stayed next door, but no one picked the call. As soon as he reached his apartments he ran up the stairs and got to his house on the third floor. He was now gasping for breath, as he reached his house.

The main door was ajar, he pushed open the door. The lights were all switched off; he walked into the hall and shouted out for Sushmita. Suddenly then he heard the door behind him being shut, he froze for a minute. And then he felt soft arms of Sushmita around his waist, as she whispered into his ears “Happy anniversary honey.”  He turned around and took her into his arms and kissed her softly on her forehead and said “You had me there!” Sushmita smiled coyly, Rohit kissed her on the lips and whispered, “Happy Anniversary Su. Love you forever.”

P.S: After a mundane Tuesday morning at work what better then scribbling few words on the word pad to add some glitter to the dreamy nights.

  1. Good one Vijay...But I think if the wife played such a prank on the hubby, she would receive a one-tight-slap for putting him through all the tension and stress before a kiss ha ha :D
