The Shave




*Knock Knock!!*

Adhav opened the door and glared at me.

‘What'ya doing here?’

‘I thought you might need some help,’ I smiled innocently. ‘Diya told me what’s going on.’

‘She did?’ he exclaimed.

I nodded. ‘After watching you with her that day, I was wondering what made you so twitchy.’

‘She noticed too, huh?’

I stepped past him. ‘I doubt it. She was pretty much twitchy herself too.’ I winked.

He smiled a little wider. ‘Am really nervous today’

‘mmhmm.. I can see that’, I grinned teasingly.

‘Jus stay here. I’ll be right back...’

While I was waiting in the room, he called, ‘But if the words 'I told you so' cross your lips, that’s it...’

‘Haha.. will see.’ I started arranging his scattered clothes, ‘Does she know what’s coming?’

‘I dunno. Maybe she must’ve guessed but she didn’t show anything’, he shut the door behind.

After few minutes, he came out of the bath and stood there wiping his face. His clean shaven look bowled me over.

‘Stop staring at me like that, will ya? It’s so embarrassing...’ He smiled sheepishly.

Scratching his cheeks, he paused in front of the mirror and gave me an anxious look. ‘What d’ya think?’

‘I told you.. it’ll look great’. Finding his anxiety somewhat cute, I left there letting him get ready. ‘It’s your special day. C’mon hurry up’.

When he came down, I tossed him the bike key and he started to leave.

‘Hey you forgot something?’ I handed him the pearly white box encasing a diamond ring and kissed his smooth cheeks.

‘Thanks, Mom’, He hugged me.

I felt happy for he found his love and the reason to give up his favorite 'unshaven' look, as I watched him heading towards the bike... to propose his best friend, Diya.
