The magical moment!

"Where is my candy floss love story?", she would often wonder, sitting alone when no worries were haunting her.

She had grown up on a good dose of romance, in the novels, movies and all.....
It wasn't too long back, when she sat by the window in her parents' house, looking out, and dreaming of the knight in shining armour,the prince charming on the white horse and that magical moment when she would find out she was in love with him..............

But that was not to be...He had come to see her that day with his parents. It was going to be an arranged marriage. Just why didn't her parents wait till that magical moment when she would fall in love???

She vividly remembered him staring hard at the ceramic tiles...and all her dreams went up in smoke!

She remembered the first few days, he would come home with a cauliflower...
"It doesn't have worms..so i got them....i love gobi manchurian..."
Doesn't he know of the non-edible flowers like rose for instance, she thought and sighed!He only laughed, when she spoke about how non-romantic it was to buy cauliflowers for his newly wedded wife.

Her magical moment was just a dream.....and would always remain so!

Just then one day, he took her along to visit an old relative who was sick!What a wonderful way to spend the weekend together, she thought.
On the way, he again got some fruits and cauliflower in the railway station.It was a ritual, he always did that when he went to visit people.....

She stopped him for a minute on seeing that colourful weighing machine, with those lights blinking away merrily and the wheels rotating reminding her of all those flashback scenes in old movies....it was an inviting sight, and she wanted to break free of the mundane..and so she walked up to the weighing machine and stood on it , fumbling in her handbag for change.

"Wait!",He smiled and handed the one rupee coin.In her enthusiasm, she inserted the coin even before the wheel stopped rotating."Not before the wheel stops!", he said, but she had already inserted...He gave a one little stare.

She thought she wouldn't get to know her weight..but there it was the little yellow card with her weight on it. 58 Kgs, it seemed to be screaming at her.

She handed it to him, without so much as a second glance. He seemed to staring at it for way too long...now what?she thought, He has even begun researching a small yellow card with her weight printed over it!!

He smiled and handed it to her,"Turn it around and see what's printed on back of it"

It was only then she realised that there would be one little prediction at the back of the card.Way back, when she was a kid, she remembered being eager to see what was the prediction, rather than her weight....so that was what he was referring..she thought and took the card from him..
and before she could read it, he said, "you know what? I think the prediction is right!!!"
"You are an angel who brings smile and love into the life of an ordianry man!"-said the card.
She looked up at him and smiled a shy smile...so he thought she was an angel.....
PS: I know that was the worst story you ever read, with typos and all..but do remember i wrote it amidst work.....and me off to kalahasti tommorow...so will ba back on wednesday, when work calls me with a presentation to make....busy busy me..poor me

reminds me of this joke :

'My wife is an angel', he said.
'You are lucky. Mine is still alive', I replied.

I keep wondering from where you keep getting inspiration for such posts.

I know these stories are nothing but your imagination, taking flight.... All that is fine, but how in the world did u get this 'cauliflower' mania in your head, to include it in your story??? :-) I keep wondering... :)
