Chapter Forty Five


⭕ Finale ⭕












JENNIFER rushed out of her apartment and straight into the car It was obvious she was late for where she’s going to



She put the key into the ignition and zoomed off



Soon a call came into her phone



“Damn”, she cussed and took the phone from the pigeon hole



She looked into it and smiled, it was Priceley



“Hey dear”, she said, her left hand on the steering, her right hand with the phone



“Hey babe, where you, you are keeping me waiting”, Priceley complained into the phone



Jennifer sighed


“I’m sorry, I’m on my way”, she said



“I’m waiting, and tell that damn car to bring you here at once”, she


laughed and the call ended










Priceley was putting finishing touches on his bandhgala in readiness for the marriage



He sprayed himself some passion perfume and walked out of the room



Still petrified why Jennifer hadn’t come yet, he picked up his phone to call, then boom, there was Jennifer’s car driving in slowly


He smiled and walked to the car after it had screeched to a halt



Jennifer alighted



“Hey”, Priceley shouted, “you aren’t even dressed yet”



Jennifer looked at herself and sighed


“How do you want me to dress? You forgotten I’m no Indian?”



Priceley shook his head


“Come in and get dressed, I got some sari for you”, he intoned and they both walked into the house



He had Prisha do the dressing for her and then they were ready to leave



Priceley was waiting downstairs for her, he was already feeling agitated



The best man and bridesmaid, are still yet to leave What nonsense



Then he looked up and saw her coming down the stairs, counting her steps



He walked up to her and offered his right hand



“Here princess”, he said, she smiled and placed her left hand on his and they both walked to the car



“We’re late you know? And you caused it”, Priceley said as he opened the car door for her to enter



“I didn’t”, she said, rolling her eyes, “we both caused it”, she laughed


“I think I’ll have your lips cut off”, they laughed



He revved the car and they zoomed off










The marriage hall in the Sujit’s mansion was well decorated, and befit for a marriage of class



People roamed about, some just arriving


The place was extremely crowded, and filled with figures of high caliber, standard and importance to the society



Sharuna’s schoolmates were all there in their numbers, teachers included



Kesmanee’s business associates and employees weren’t exempted Everyone was just present



The bride was dressed up in a red and white Panetar sari, and the groom in


a red and white Sherwani.


They were beautifully dressed



Soon, the marriage kicked off and the rites were carried out



The most important rite, which is the Saptapadi, was carried out



The bride’s and groom’s clothes were tied to each other



The bride’s Panetar was tied to the groom’s sherwani, and the Saptapadi was carried out


They took steps round the fire, seven steps to be specified



Then the bride offered a drink to the groom, and they both walked to the center of the hall and knelt down, where both parents prayed for them



Now, proclaimed husband and wife



All done, Kesmanee took hold of Sharuna’s hand and stood her up Now, they were facing each other



Sharuna was somewhat shy, her heart beat so loud and fast Her face was down, her eyes looking at the floor



“Look into my eyes, my lady”, he whispered to her She slowly raised her head



Their gaze met



“I knew this day was gonna come”, he said, “no matter what happens, if we were meant to be together, it shall be so”



She smiled and looked into his eyes



“What will be will be”, she whispered


“I love you”, her lips wobbled



He smiled


“I love you too”, and he brought his head down as their lips met in a passionate kiss



The people cheered, and threw shimmering confetti of flowers over the couple
