HER jaw dropped, and she struggled to find her voice
A lotta things were going through her head
She was speechless and lost for words
“What did you say?”, she managed to ask

“Marry me”, he repeated quietly, and he knew and saw the things going through her
She exhaled and tried to pinch herself, when she realized he was still holding her left hand
“You can’t be serious”, she said
“I am, damn serious”, he said softly
Ohh Jesus, she wasn’t expecting this at all
She was speechless, she didn’t know what exactly to say
She sighed
“You should know I can’t accept “no”, for an answer”, he cut into her thoughts
She raised her head and looked into his eyes
She was damn stopping the tears welling in her eyes from falling
Dr Sujit looked into her eyes, still holding her hands and smiling
“Do you?”, he asked
She bent her head to face the floor and nodded
“Yes”, she said with a start
He smiled
“Yes, you will or yes, you won’t?”, he asked
“Yes, I will”, she nodded, and the tears flowed down freely
He laughed and brushed his lips on her cheek
“Come here”, and he carried her into the bedroom
Sharuna looked at the wall clock hung on the wall, and dashed into the bathroom
It was a day set aside for some sweet work, and she needed to get it done
Her marriage was just two days away
The thought of it alone, made her squeal
She rushed her bath and went into the room to see her breakfast on the bedside table
Yes, she had asked Prisha to bring it to her room, she wanted to rush it
Soon, she was done

She carried her woven basket, filled with her marriage invitation cards, and carried the plates with which she ate, to the kitchen
Then she walked to the sitting room, Kesmanee was standing by the window, he was on phone
He turned to see her and waved smiling
Then he got off the phone and walked up to her
“Hi”, he kissed her cheek
“You off to school?”, he asked
She scoffed
“School? Nah, I’m off to somewhere else”, she said
“Must ya know?”
He laughed
“Well, yes. For safety reasons”
She shrugged
“To anywhere then, see ya”, and she walked to the door
“I’m going to work soon, just wait let me drop you off”, he said
She turned to him and shook her head
“I will trek. Where I can’t, then I’ll board a cab”, she winked
“Take care”, and she left
She was determined to go share her marriage invitation, it was just two days away
She couldn’t wait
She had planned to trek, and where she couldn’t, she would take a cab
She walked down to the road
Now, where she gonna start from?
Where should she go first?
The company, yeah. Kesmanee’s company first
It was a far from where she stood
She realized she was gonna use a cab
She walked a little further and hailed down a taxi
It pulled up, and she boarded

There was only a passenger inside, and before she could get to her destination, the passenger alighted
“Here”, the cab driver announced and turned to her
“Okay”, she beamed as she dipped her hand into her bag for the t-fare
“Thank you”, the driver said and collected the money
“Oh!”, she exclaimed as she was about to open the door
“What?”, he asked
She put her hand into her basket and brought out a card, then extended it towards him
“Here”, she said smiling, “inviting you to my marriage, the day after tomorrow, at the Sujit’s mansion”, she said
The cab driver beamed as he took the card
“Thank you”
“I’m expecting to see ya”, and she left the cab
She got down and walked into the building
Who knows?
Kesmanee might have arrived
She glanced at the parking lot and his car was there
Meaning, he has already arrived
She smiled and entered the building
Oops, she wished she hadn’t, because all eyes seemed to be on all at the instant she entered
Seemed they were holding a meeting, because they sat round the table and Kesmanee sat at the middle
The meeting was immediately interrupted
She walked to them
Kesmanee was stunned to see her, she didn’t said she would be coming
“Hi”, she said as she walked up to them
“Sorry for interrupting”
“No problem ma’am, no … problem”, they said and she smiled
They already knew who she was

“Well, I….. I came just for something simple”, she opened her basket and began bringing out the cards
“I’m inviting you all for my marriage the day after tomorrow”, she turned to see Kesmanee staring at her, with his mouth widely opened
She winked at him and started going round the table, dropping a card at each person’s front
What was going on?
Sharing marriage cards at the middle of a meeting?
Oh my God!
It was funny
The people never minded either, they surprisengly accepted the offer and was checking out the cards immediately she dropped
They couldn’t believe their eyes, it was the CEO!
And come to think of it, he never bothered to invite them

Kesmanee sat still, waiting for his wonder lady to finish with whatever she was doing so he could continue with the meeting
After she had gone round and distributed some cards, she walked up to him
What was she coming to do now?
Probably not to invite him too, nah. How could she?
He stayed still and waited for her to come close
She came to him and stopped
Then she dipped her hand into her basket and brought out a card
Then she placed it on the desk in front of him
He looked at her inquiringly and surprised
“I’m also inviting you”, she said and winked
“Take care”, and she walked to the door
“Thanks for your time everyone, I will be expecting all ya”, she said and left
Kesmanee couldn’t believe it
I mean, he was the groom, so why inviting him too?
This girl must be insane
He shrugged and shoved the card aside and then, the meeting continued
Sharuna walked to the road
Mission one accomplished, now where next?
Okay, her school
The institution
She trekked for a while, not because of anything, but because she wanted to
Then it got to a point where her legs began aching her, and she decided to flag down a cab
The cab got to Kesley Arts, Crafts and Painting Institution
She got down, but not after giving the cab driver a card
She went into the building and straight to her department
Teaching was going on
She knocked on the door and the teacher opened
“Sharuna”, she beamed, “how are you?”
“I m fine ma’am. Good morning”
“Morning. Why didn’t we see you today?”
“That was what brought me now, please can I come in?”
“Sure”, she said and moved aside and Sharuna entered
As soon as the students saw her, they shouted and cheered
She was shocked
Wait, have they known already?
She shrugged
“Well ma’am, I officially came to invite my people of my marriage, two days away”
“We know……we know”, they said chanting
Who told them?
News flies anyway

“I have something for you guys”, she said and started going round the desks, placing a card on each desk
“Wow!”, a student screamed
Congrats, congrats were just pouring on her like rain
Then she gave to her teacher
“I’m expecting to see you all”
“We will”, they shouted
“Ma’am, I will be going now, thanks for the time”
The teacher smiled
“No problem, congrats once again”
“Thank you”, and she left
She headed straight to Mr Bennett’s office
She knocked and entered
“Mr Bennett?”, she called
“Sharuna”, his face beamed, “daughter in law”, he said and she laughed
“Well Mr Bennett, I’m inviting you for my marriage”, she placed a card on his desk
Mr Bennett looked puzzled
“Pardon? Invite me you say?”
She nodded
“Yeah, two days from now at ……”
“Wait….wait….wait”, he interrupted, “I mean, I’m one of the master planners of this marriage you know?”
She laughed and nodded
“I know, I’m just so happy, that’s why I’m inviting you”
“Hmm, you act weird sometimes”
She laughed
“Take care papa”, and she left

When she was out to the road, she crossed to the other side and straight to the provision store, her succour to hiding from Priceley
This thinking made her laugh
Fortunately, Mother Hubbard, the store keeper was around
“Mother Hubbard?”, Sharuna called as she walked to her
The old woman got up from her stool, and tried to recollect who the lady was
“It’s me Sharuna”, she explained
She didn’t blame her, it’s been long since she came here
“Ohh”, the old lady exclaimed, “ohh my daughter. Is this you?”, and they embraced
“Yes Mother Hubbard”
“How have you been?”
“Fine and you?”
“Okay”, she placed her specks well on her eyes

“Well, Mother, I came to invite you for my marriage ceremony. Taking place at the Sujit’s mansion, the day after tomorrow”, she rushed her words as she gave her a card
“Are you serious?”, the lady asked, surprised as she received the card
Sharuna nodded, smiling
“Yes Mother”
“Oh dear, congratulations to you”, she hugged her
“Thank you. I will be expecting you, bye”, and she turned
“Take care”, her voice was weak and frail
What a day
She boarded a cab and straight to the boutique
The taxi pulled up and she alighted and walked into the boutique
They were about two customers around
“Sharuna”, Henrietta called happily
“Aunt Henrietta”, and they hugged
“How are you?”

“I’m fine. Well, I’m inviting ya”, she dipped her hand into her basket and gave her a card
“My marriage ceremony, next tomorrow”
“Wow, you don’t mean it”, Henrietta said
“I mean everything about it”, she laughed
Then she gave the customers around some cards, also inviting them
“Inviting ya….. expecting ya all”, she said
She walked to the dressing compartment, her mom was there as usual
“Mother?”, she called and ran to embrace her
“Oh my! Dora”, she called
“Yes mummy. I’m inviting you”, she gave her a card
Vida laughed
“Silly girl”, she shrugged and took the card
“You are inviting your mother, someone who already knew before you?”
They laughed
“Well mother, I guess it’s because I’m so happy”
“I thank God for that. Well, your father proposed to me”
“What! Dr Sujit?”, she asked in disbelief
Vida nodded smiling
“And what did you say?”
Vida looked at her sheepishly
“What do you expect me to say?”, she laughed
“Well, I said yes”.
