Love happened just like that…( 2 min read)

Do you ever realize at what point you start falling for someone? Most of you might say no, but I’d say yes. Let me take you back to that moment –

I was gazing up at the heavy, dark clouds, about to break into rain droplets anytime; the sky seemed to be reflecting my face, wet and clouded with tears. suddenly his face flashed before my eyes, this is wrong, I swallowed the lump in my throat.

I heard a thud behind me, the door opened. It was my husband.

Seeing tears in my eyes, he froze for a moment, then hesitantly walked over to me. ‘Is something wrong?’ He asked.

I looked away and sniffed hard. ‘Are you happy…I mean…this marriage…er…,’ I fumbled for words.

He stared at me for a long while, then said, ‘it’s about you being happy with me, isn’t it?’

‘I’m trying hard, trust me…I’m -‘

He cut me short, ‘then stop trying…if this marriage makes you sad, leave me.’

I was dumbfounded. ‘You mean…’

He took a deep breath. ‘I notice everything – your forced smiles, cold stares, silent tears, your swollen eyes…every little emotion you try to hide. You know what I think about first thing in the morning – if I can do anything to make you feel better.’ He let out a heavy sigh. ‘So, I think today I’ve done that.’

He dropped his eyes and swallowed hard. But for reasons unknown, I couldn’t take my eyes off his face. Suddenly, after what seemed like ages, I heard my heart beating.
