Gift

 “Where are you taking me?” Riddhi asked annoyed with him for having forgotten to wish her, leave alone give the gift she had desired for on their first anniversary, an early morning breakfast with him and the sunrise in the background as the new resort in their city claimed.

“Endurance my dear is the best companion at the moment,” Atul replied with a kidding note in his voice.

“Hope he has no despicable ideas,” she recollected the news about the suicide by a young, much in love couple. In addition, she remembered him talking about bringing some Project to its conclusion. “Was it she?”
“Now, do not get on the wrong track” he whispered as if reading her thoughts as his
cold hands untied the blindfold and the warm breath trickled through the nape of her neck sending shivers down her spine but this time the goose bumps rose, as she knew she was standing at the edge of a cliff… 

As she opened her eyes, she stood mesmerized by the scene in front for along with the words that accompanied the visual “Happy Anniversary, Love. The sun rises here first; first rays of the sun just for you!” ; feeling a jolt in her thoughts, she clearly understood now why her Atul  was persuasive for this trip to Arunachal Pradesh even neglecting her yearning for the first time ever for he had envisioned a timeless gift for her.

This place that spread rays of hope and love in their lives, Arunachal Pradesh, is a state in India that receives the first rays of the sun each day and hence derives its name from Sanskrit that means ‘the land of rising sun’.

In case you are wondering that there are six sentences well, the fiction ends at the fifth sentence while the sixth sentence concludes the post.

  12. Such a beautiful gift and well thought out surprise that she will remember always, far more so than breakfast at a fancy resort. Anniversaries are meant for the making of special memories, Papa Bear and I always try to observe them in such ways.
