I nodes …she leaves from there … and got busy in my mobile though I know tat boy was still present in the room but still I didn’t cared to look at him
as I was busy checking my watsup msgs …I felt his continuous gaze on me …I got irritated and looked at him by corner of the eyes …. and found him staring at him with a smile but still I didn’t saw him clearly ….
“Hi I’m Sanskar ” he said with his so sweet voice ???
I immediately looked at him …omg omg ..he is so cute ??? …I was lost in him but came to sense hearing his sweet grin ….I downs my head in shy .. oh god I’m shying ..haan I’m shying ???? but but ..he isn’t the 1st boy who made me feel shy …???

I smiled on my own thoughts …
“u didn’t replied me … chalo chodo tell me wats ur name” he asked
I was feeling shy …so I didn’t reply him
he notices thz and smiles …
“wat r u doing ….watsup huh” he said looking at my mobile … I immediately hided my mobile while he laughed at my antiques….I blushed ???
just then we hears kavitha di calling us ” Shona …sanky …come here lunch is ready ”

I immediately agreed and left to dining area ….where da lunch …tasty tasty chicken was served ????
I sat on chair fixing my eyes on the chicken deciding to eat it more (??)
kavitha di served me lil rice and chicken
I kept my hand on the chicken to eat it 1st ? …but he ..wats his name haan Sanskar came there and took a seat opposite to me …. my hands automatically travelled from the piece of chicken to rice as he was staring me continuously …I felt shy to eat… so I took lil lil rice and fed myself like decent girl ?? ….
Huh!!! thz idiot is still staring … oh god I sacrificed my chicken ?? …
after sometime we I.e I and kaveri aunt left to kaveri aunt house … oh he was staring me with a smile still I left the house ….I felt shy and blushed too ???
Days passed ..everyday he used to visit Kaveri aunt house with one or other work …sometimes I feel tat he comes here to stares me …jobless fellow ??
it was haldi in kaveri aunt house …everyone were applying haldi to sahil bhai ….some ladies were dancing ..I was enjoying too with my cousins … just then he came there with” a bowl of haldi in his hand … kaveri notices him and asked me to take the haldi bowl from him as she was busy …
I noded with no option ….and went towards him while he was yet again staring him with tat smile ..oh god so cute ?? …
“O haldi ” I asked him with shy as he was staring me
“u r looking beautiful ” he said with a smile …I blushed at his complement
“I asked u for haldi” I said tuking my fringes back …he smiles and handovers the bowl of haldi to me …I took it immediately and left from there
“let’s meet tomorrow at marriage” he shouts at him
I blushed hearing him .. after haldi ceremony completed ..all left to sleep as it was marriage 2mro
I also tried to sleep but sleeping wasn’t taking over me …. I was remembering abt him …his smile …his talks his laugh ??? I liked ..in fact I loved each and everything in him …..
As a fan of romance ka baadsha SRK .. when ever I used to see any of his movie …I used to imagine Sanskar ? in the place of SRK and me in the place of actress romanising with SRK ??
mostly kojal ..in tat suraj hua matam song ?? ……. hahahaha silly me ??? …..I think I have fallen in love with him ?? and I think he also loves me …soon I dozed off thinking abt him
Next day …finally it was a marriage day of Sahil bhai and kavitha di oops now bhabi ….
I dressed in a pink lehenga with diamond hearings and bangles. … my hair were left curled and applied a light makeup tat suits me … I was making sure to look stunning ?? as Sanskar will also be there …..I should look him beautiful na huh ?
checking myself in the mirror for every 1min …I left from the room as my cousins glared at me …..
as soon as I stepped out of the room I found him standing in corner with his road side Romeo types frnd ?
but whatever he was looking soo cute and handsome ?? …
his gazes falls on me …I turned away feeling shy …he smiles and comes towards me
“Hey beautiful …at least today can we exchange some words” he said winking at me …I blushed and nodes in agreement
“hmm then wats ur name” he continued with a smile
“Swara ….Swara gadodia” I said in nervously …
“oh beautiful name ..but not beautiful than u ” he flirts ? ….winking at me ?
I blushed ..he made me so me busy in talks tat I myself didn’t realised when I started speaking to him openyly …laughing …teasing ..him
“haan ..haan don’t stare soo much Mr ” I teased him ?
“wat can I do…if the person whom I staring is so winsome …I can’t resist myself staring her na” he said with a wink ? …I laughs …while he was just staring me …I looked at him
“wat happen” I asked
“Swara I LOVE YOU ” he replied
I looks on shock ….I was feeling so happy ?? but before I could rply him back ….my stupid cousins (?) came there & dragged me from there ….not letting me answer him
Then I got busy in masti with my cousins …tat I didn’t remembered abt him but …when I saw one of his frnd …I remembered confession
“oh shit ..I didn’t reply him ” I said and started searching for him ….but I didn’t find him anywhere
“I have to rply him …tat I love him too” ?? I said as I passed by a balcony I heard his voice ?
I got happy and before i entered the balcony …I saw him standing with a girl …holding her hand …both were looking at each other ? like any lovers …I got angry and was abt to go inside …but stopped In the track hearing their conversion ..or u can say romantic talks ?
“u r soo beautiful ” he said ?
“hehehe thank u ” the girl replied
“I really love you u soo much” he said
