She stood there smiling in her glittering maroon wedding dress. Her eyes sparkled. Those big dangling ear rings,the bangles,the mascara. She never looked so beautiful. Her hair tied,curled upwards,golden shining sandals,the nervous happy look. He had never seen her like this. He stood there in wonder gaze. His eyes couldn't help but capture every little move of her. She was breathtaking.
The groom had not arrived yet. He moved towards her and said with a smug look on face " You might be the only lady on this planet who gets ready before time". She smiled and replied "Yeah.You know i hate screw ups.Last night i had a dream i was late and people were waiting for me furiously. Pandit calling my name a hundred times. Now i didn't want that to come true". He laughed "You and your weird dreams!!! Gonna miss listening to them every morning". She looked at him with a dazzled look "Dude,what did you just say.Chill!! it's not that i won't be in touch. You are my best friend".
He nodded with a smile. Deep inside he knew nothing was gonna be the same. Marriage never keeps friendship's the same. She won't buzz him ten times a day nor give him her life's details. She won't talk hours of crap on phone as she always did which at times he never listened to anyways but she was his comfort zone and somehow he was not comfortable seeing her go. He knew he would loose her in time but it wasn't sinking in that the moment was now. He felt a huge lump in his throat; that his thoughts choked him and opened his eyes to the situation he ignored all along.
She was his only best friend,immature yes but she made him laugh. She poked him "Sweets, you didn't tell how i look?". 'For a change beautiful" he said. She gave him an annoying look "Its my wedding day, try and be nice".
The groom arrived and she left the room tugging her hair behind,making sure she looked perfect. He stood there in the audience,watching her do all the rituals. All he thought was he was gonna miss her to world's end; his best friend. He gazed at her in astonishment. Never had he seen her this way. Never had he realized he depended on her in so many ways. Never had he thought he would be jealous of the man standing next to her. He wanted to leave yet he stood there watching her, not knowing exactly what he was loosing!!!
