Funny life, Story-telling, Writing Prompts

When the unexpected happens..

I’d been anxiously waiting for this day. Today my sincere efforts of the last few weeks were going to bear fruit. All those sleepless nights spent in anticipation of this day would from now on be fondly remembered as an exercise in longing. The intelligent and stunningly beautiful new trainee in our team, Rose, had finally agreed to go out on a date with me! πŸ™‚

I knew she’d give in to my charm and my relentless pursuit sooner or later. I know girls love to be wooed and paid attention to, and I had been generous on both fronts. This was the same girl who couldn’t bear me standing in the same room with her, and now, well. Round one belongs to yours truly. πŸ˜€

I saw her striding down our office corridor in the morning today. She looked ethereal. I tried to soften her up for our impending date but apart from the quick pleasantries she didn’t seem much interested in talking to me. May be she wanted to keep our little outing a secret and not make it to office-cooler gossip. Smart girl. πŸ™‚

By evening I started getting a bit edgy. Not only did she show no sign of fondness towards me, she even reprimanded me for being responsible for the delay in her making reports! Was I disturbing her? I saw all my dreams for tonight slowly crashing in front of my eyes. What and why was all this happening? πŸ™

As I was getting ready to make yet another unsuccessful attempt of trying to remind her that we were supposed to leave in 15 minutes to avoid being late, I got the call. I wish I could ignore it, but I couldn’t. I tried to find my voice as the person on the other side told me, to my utter shock, something I couldn’t imagine in my wildest dreams.

My wife was at the reception waiting to go with me for the date I’d planned so meticulously. Apparently, she’d been pleasantly surprised when she was informed about it in the morning, by Rose.
