Hug Me


 

Honey, can we go for a movie tomorrow morning show?

Why? You don’t have office tomorrow?

Arae, tomorrow its second shift for me…

Oh I see, I was wondering how come you are taking a leave to go for a movie with me.

Well I can surely take leave if you agree to come to my home after the movie show…

Now I understand why the dog is wagging its tail!!

This is a great insult to entire men community, why you girls always doubt our noble intentions? I just called you for a cup of coffee dear, nothing more, and nothing less

Oh is it? How would you manage my future in laws who would be at home when I come there tomorrow?

Don’t worry, they all have already left for their home town...

Warae Wah, so it’s only you and me at home if I come, right?

Yes, so what’s the big deal?

How innocent you guys look when you wanted your things to happen, you think am I stupid?

Why are you getting agitated?

Idiot, no one is at home and you want me to believe that you are inviting me to your home only for a cup of coffee?

Girls and suspicion are born together; you are also not an exception!!

Oh my dear wise men, I don’t want to take risk, you better go to office after the movie...

Believe me, I didn’t meant anything, it’s just a coffee invitation...

I know how you would prepare coffee. First you would go to kitchen, prepare coffee, and then you would call me for help and then you would start the conversation, and then you would spill milk on either one of our clothes, and then... since there are family audience reading this, I am stopping at this point…

Is it your doubt on me or you are expressing your inner desire honey?

Mr., I didn’t request you to come to my house for coffee, it’s you and only you know the reason behind it.

Venkat, it’s already 11, can you switch off the light?

….

Venkat, I am talking to you, there is nobody else in this room…

….

Idiot, what are you writing, while I am shouting at you…?

Oh God, can’t you spare me for some time, I am just writing a story…

Nonsense, are you mad to write a story at this hour?

Yaar, it’s been more than 8 months I haven’t updated any story in my blog, so thought of writing one...

Oh yeah? I saw your blog, there were thousands of fan following who were literally begging you to write stories... you have to satisfy them na…

Honey, don’t insult me, I agree there is no body requesting me to write, but still can’t I write atleast for my inner satisfaction?

Oh of course you can write, but it would be well and good if you also taken your wife satisfaction into consideration?

Why are you shouting now? What I didn’t do for you? I have given you a good life style; you have all satisfaction here including physical, what else you need?

You have gone nuts? I didn’t expect you would turn out to be such a sadist who doesn’t understand his own wife? What are you talking? You mean to think a husband responsibility ends once he has given her wife the status and physical satisfaction? I can’t believe I loved you once so much than myself...

I didn’t mean it... what I meant was…

Of course you meant it; words don’t come unless you have it in your mind…. Your mind is sick… I have ruined my life; I should have heard to my father, he warned me before marriage, I made a big mistake (cries)…

Now why are you making a scene, you wanted to switch of the lights, here you go, I switched it off, you sleep peacefully, good bye, let me go to the hall and continue my story…

All men are like this... can’t even understand your women, you keep us with you until we give you the fragrance, once you are used to it & get bored, you throw us away… why did I married you (cries)

Sweetheart, come closer…

Boss, this is not your home, we are sitting in a movie hall and we have come here to watch a movie...

Of course we are here to watch movie, but atleast you can slightly come closer na, you are sitting as if your boyfriend is sitting towards your right side, for your kind information I am sitting in your life side…

That’s my fear dear, I don’t want to give you a chance...

What chance?

You forgot what you did when we went for the movie last time?

What I did?

People who came for the movie watched us more than the show…

Oh god, it’s your imagination, nobody watched us, all were watching only the movie, and it’s only me who was watching you, hahaha!!

Dear, talk slowly, this is movie hall, please don’t do anything like you did last time, I feel very uncomfortable...

Didn’t you enjoy it last time?

….

Tell me, you liked it or not?

Honey, I don’t want to lie to you, of course I liked it, and I could not stop myself when you come so closer to me, but can’t we wait? I am all yours; you can do whatever you want to do with me once we are married, but atleast till then …

Oh come on, why are you talking like a village girl? Is it a bit mistake if I just kissed you couple of times and held your hand closer to mine, what’s the big deal in it?

What you want? The worthy time we spend together or such titillations?

Both?

Won’t you change yourself?

This is romance honey. After marriage it dies, look at these families, do you see any romance between them? The wife is looking somewhere else, the husband is seeing somewhere else. They don’t have to do what we did last time, atleast can’t they have smile on their faces? They have come here just to fulfill the family responsibility. One movie a week, monthly two saree’s, yearly a tour, that’s it, they think they have satisfied their family responsibility.  Atleast we can keep it strong before marriage...

So you are afraid we would also end up like this?

Of course, we are going to… we are going to fight like anything, that’s what all wife and husband do… after marriage, romance just dies dear… eh, eh... where are you going? Movie is going to start... Janu… stop... stop janu… listen to me... Janu don't go..

……

So have you finished your story?

Oh you haven’t slept yet? I thought you have slept and slowly sneaked in... It’s going to be 1 AM dear...

How will I get sleep, after fighting with you?

We fight daily, still aren’t we together? So what’s new today?

Words...

Words..?

Yeah words, the same words which you talked so lovingly, so caringly with so much of love and feelings in them before marriage, where are they now? The same words are now killing me, how can you talk like that to me? (cries)

Sorry Janu, I realized after I went to the hall, I couldn’t continue my story no matter how hard I tried, I was hating myself for behaving like that with you…

But Why ? what I did to deserve such treatment from you apart from loving you so much?

You know story writing is my passion, I was so connected with it and couldn’t get the story right and during that time you were nurturing me to switch off the light... And all the anger which I had connected to my story, I showed it on you…

So wife is a dustbin isn’t it? Whatever you throw, she has to take it, I am feeling suffocation living with you now (cries)

It’s not like that, don’t you think it’s also a love ? Can I show my anger on anybody else? it’s the feeling that you are totally mine, I just behaved myself at that juncture. I know it’s wrong, but nobody can be right all the time. Human beings go through varied of emotions and they show it to their near loved one’s. So somehow we expect them to take it. it might be you today and it might be me tomorrow…

But I can’t see you shouting at me? I can’t take it, may be it’s one of the duty of a wife, but I cannot see you in this manner.  May be you are right when you told me romance dies after marriage, during one of our lovely days before marriage… but I wasn’t prepared for it.. I still believe on love…

Of course I love you janu, but let us face the reality. I cannot be soothing to you every moment, I pass through varied of emotions, sometimes you may face such other side of me as well and you have to take it...

Is it an order?

Janu, I don’t know how to explain to you…

Dear, you don’t have to explain. I understood…life journey has to go through so many hurdles and paths… some paths may be smooth and peaceful and some time we have to face paths full of hurdles, bumps & pain.  Beauty of relationship is how we cope up and remain together inspite of varied of situation around us. For that we both have to understand and be flexible. I need to understand your priorities and give you the freedom for your inner space, which alone will make you come back to me…

Aren’t you philosophical?

No I’m practical… And I learnt my husband better today…

And what’s that?

Not to disturb you when you write stories...

Hahah, oh Janu… I am again sorry, I don’t know why I behaved liked that…

Its fine dear, I’m sorry too… did you finish the story?

No honey, I couldn’t, you were all over me, I couldn’t move, not a word came out right… let me tell you, no matter how I behave on any situation, I still love you so much and I am NULL without you…

So you are back to your words?

What words?

Lovely Words which make me die for you… and not like the words you talked before?

And what are those words?

Those are harsh words which make me die because of you…

…..

I only wish you select your words better which would make me die for you and not die because of you…

Oh honey, I feel completely moved now by your choice of words…

So what do you think? Our romance died after our marriage?

Yes, you are right. Romance dies after certain period of marriage. However it can be given birth again; both husband & wife are equally responsible to give birth to it whenever they realize it’s dying

So are we going to give birth to romance once again?

Yes, not only that, we are going to give birth to something else too (winkles)

What?

Dear, do you feel sleepy?

How do I look like?

You now look like my janu with whom I went for a movie for the first time before marriage (winkles)

Oh great, so you are going to do all you did on that day?

Yes my sweetheart…

But I won’t agree!!!

But Why? I know it’s my mistake, won’t you forgive me? Are you still angry with me?

You waggling dog!!  I want more than that and that’s what I meant and now come on quickly give me a tight hug…

Romance never dies between lovely couple. It just gets hidden sometimes. If your’s is hidden; its high time to search it quickly before it get lost.

20. Pallikondapuram (பள்ளிகொண்டபுரம்) by நீல. பத்மநாபன்: I don't know why, but i got so impressed with this book that I again went to one of the page, which moved me very much. That page gave an assurance for a belief which is already uprooted in me for so many years. Excellently written book. One of the top books which should surely be in your bookshelf.
