An innocent love story,, true too!!

                  Am not talking about Romeo and juliet or Laila and Majnu here, i dont know how true are these stories, the only true love story that i know of,is that of my grand parents.. :-D One could see the love in their eyes, even while yelling at each other.I always thought they could read each others mind, and that they were connected, 24/7 through telepathy or something :-P One fine day, the amused me wanted to know, how it all started.. and a few minutes later, my gammy is blushing while my granddad goes on.................



                  There was this 9 year old boy in his oversized shorts,sticking to his mom's saree, while someone yells, down the hall  " R, come see your little bride " The boy runs towards the room, and sees this beautiful, new born baby girl, with eyes like black olives ,a huge head with hardly any hair, tiny tiny hands and legs. Baby N  flicks her eyelids at 50flicks per minute, and pees on R.It was then that R decided, he is never gonna go bride hunting ever. He always took care of his little bride. As they grew up, R took baby N to school, and got her, treats and gifts occasionally..R joined college by the time his bride turned up at middle school, now she was this shy, bewitching beauty, with Rapunzel like hair. Ms.N was sent away to a boarding school, Mr.R couldn't handle it though, so he made sure , he visits her at school every now and then along with her dad but she would shy away..
                  Mr.R grows into this fine gentleman, with a job in a far away land. Once, when he visits his would be in laws to get some paper work done, there she was, standing right in front of him, laughing out loud innocently, he just could wait no more, he was falling for her for the n-th time. He walks up to Ms.N 's mother and says " i want to marry your daughter, i cant wait anymore, and i want you to talk to uncle about it, this instant". Happy mother asks her daughter what she thinks of the whole idea, Ms.N smiles and runs out.. Ta da!!! They get married... (it was quite a grand wedding,,, i heard)
                  Marriage, kids, electricity bills, arguments, fits, family politics, neighbour's dog, falling sick, putting kids through school, building a house,transfers, bigger arguments, savings, losing, ever changing universe, deaths and dealing with the worst of times, was all impossible yet the love wasnt lost even a bit. Mr and Mrs. R  get their daughters married, and life is all about grand children now.The old bride plans to go on a trip with the rest of the ladies, from family, Mr.R isnt happy about sending her alone, Mrs.R uses her charm to let her go and she finally goes.....
                  She comes back home with a killing fever, that puts her in bed for the rest of her life. Mr.R is shattered and tries every possible thing to get his bride to walk again, but nothing works.

( i am taking over the story now .... )

                   He brushed her teeth, fed her food, cleaned her waste, and rocked her leg for the rest of their lives.. she lay in bed for four years, not by choice, but he sat on the chair next to her, for four years by choice and will..He never left her side for more than an hour,even if he did leave,it wasnt for more than 18 hours, and laying down in bed, she always sensed his return home,, even when he was at the other end of the street, which i guess was telepathic .. He slept on the floor next to her bed, for four years.. He wouldn't be satisfied if someone else helped his bride with her chores, he had to do it himself, every single day! He kept ants from biting her sore feet and would have taken up on the pain, if he had had a choice .
                  Mrs. R told my dad one day that her end is near, and that Mr,R will not survive her loss ..... December 5th 2008, Mrs.R left us all in grief and so did Mr.R on December 15th, 2008.... i always think of my gammy yelling at my grand dad, with that innocent love in her eyes, even in the heavens.. He is probably teasing my gammy, singing some random song.. :-P No electricity bills or fixed deposits for them to worry about now :-D
                   This is the only love story that i often think of.. and the one i adore.. All the love stories on tv, and movies are bullshit, the only place you get to find it is at home, between your parents and grand parents....  Go home and witness the love story yourself..




DISCLAIMER: I have paraphrased the first part of the story a little bit.. :-P
