The waves were lashing against the wall they were seated on.
The sun had just set, and the dusky amber sky created the perfect backdrop for a romantic evening.
She was twiddling her fingers,
nervously playing with the diamond ring he’d gotten her.
She stole glances at him, and looked away almost immediately.
He was observing her through the corner of his eyes.
They were used to typing away their every thought, their every emotion.
They were so used to the green icon pinging on their screen,
that now, when they were face to face, they were at a loss for words.
She wondered, had their online chats jaded their relationship,
and cast a grey shadow over their very first meeting?
They had talked about this meeting for months,
they had gone over every detail of his first trip to Mumbai.
They wanted to meet at Marine Drive,
no matter how cheesy it had sounded.
Now that it had been accomplished,
they were left with a deafening silence.
She decided to erase the chat history in her head,
and start over.
“Hi, I’m Saloni.”, she said,
her cheeks turning a pretty shade of crimson.
He was taken aback at first,
but was relieved that she decided to break the ice.
“Hi, I’m Rahul. Naam to suna hoga.”
She finally let go of her apprehensions and laughed like there was no tomorrow.
And just like that, his heart melted all over again.
