“Anyway thx a lot dear. Now I am becoming a successful man because of you only. Thx a lot for everything da...”
“It’s my responsibility Ajay. Nothing big in this. OK? Come… I did sweets...”
“Hmm WHR is Achu?”
“I was telling story ... He just now slept...”
“OK ok Let him sleep. Hey wify, what’s the dinner plan? Shall we go out?”
“Sorry, my dear Ajay, I have cooked already... shall we go on weekend...”
“What? You did? How you are managing your time? You did these many things by evening itself. You are amazing. I love you, my wify.” – Dad lifted my mom with full of joy.
I took a nap so don’t know what happened after that.
8 PM - In dinner:
Mom did arrangement of candle light dinner in our garden itself. Really she is yearning for my dad. Here only climax of her b ‘day gift is waiting. So mom is stirred and telling me that “Baby! Dad is coming out of the house with the blindfolded. He will be surprised once he sees this. And more than this, my gift will take him to the seventh heaven.”
As we were waiting for that moment when mom opened his eyes he was stunned. He even forgot to close his mouth. Mom is kidding him “omg! Ajay you are getting goose bumps. I finally made it. Do you like it, my hubby?”
“Hey! It’s breathtaking darling. Stupendous work! you are not normal wify. You are something special. I am very lucky to get you in my life. Whenever I am with you I am forgetting all my problems. At least for you and Achu I should grow fast. One day I will make you both happy more than this. I owe you that.” His tears are trying to come out. But he managed very well.
“Hey Ajay what's this. Now itself you take care of me like a queen. What else I need. I am so happy with you more than with my parents. Even I want to share some responsibilities with you. Let's talk about that later. Come let's have our dinner.”
They were romancing for some times and they were sharing their old memories. I just tasted the mushroom briyani. It’s yummy! Savory. As usual no one can beat my mom’s preparation. They are having dessert now. With this sweet, my mom is ready to give her 20th surprise gift. I am not going to tell what's that gift is. But accidently dad didn't like that surprise. At least he would have kept silent but it’s ticked him off. He went out of his control. He didn’t know how to handle that. Everything got changed within a min.
“Sorry, Aishu. I don't think it's good now. I am not interested.”
Mom didn't expect this. She started weeping. She simply said “Ajay I thought you will be happy about it but what happened to you? Why you are speaking like this? Please Ajay stop it.”
“How long it is? Why didn't you tell to me in starting? Is this a gift? Do you know our situation? For Achu and you itself I need to earn more. Do you know how hard I am working? At least you know the price of petrol? It's my mistake. Like others I would have asked you also to go to work. Being simply sitting in the house how will you understand my situation? If you understood, you would be discussing with me. How dare you can decide by your own? Without my knowledge how could you let it be? I am asking to you only. Say something. Stop your emotional drama please. Don't irritate me. Let it sort out first. Speak out at least now.”
Even I didn't expect this from him. It's hurting me a lot more than my mom. I couldn't bear it. I can't see her like this. Until now how happy she was. How beauty she was. Now with her crying reddish face. Omg. I want to scold my dad. But mom told me that kids shouldn't involve in parents fighting. They have rights to fight with each other. You may not understand their feelings so without knowing anything shouldn't involve in their fight. Thinking that I just kept quiet.
After few minutes she started to speak “Ajay life is not about money it’s about happiness, about our family, our relationship and our love. Can't you see our happiness with what we are having now? Then why you are saying like this?”
“That’s what I am telling. Because Achu is small now. As he grows, we need more money to bring up him well. Don’t be stupid. Just think practically.”
“I can't take it anymore. Let's speak this about later. I don't want to ruin your birthday. May be you are in some stress now. So have your dessert and go to sleep. I am bouncing. Happy birthday once again. Good night.”
From the moment mom came into the room she is wailing. I don't know what to say. How to say. But mom understood me and told me that “don't worry ammu mummy will handle this. You go to sleep. Tomorrow I will tell you a story OK?” Then I had some milk so slept soon.
Morning I came to know that dad didn't come to room night. Morning also he started to office earlier without having breakfast and taking his lunch. It's been 2 days since they spoke with each other. Mom became worst. She is whimpering all the time. She is not at all having her food properly. Even I had little only. I don't want to see my mom like this. When dad arrives I decided to fight with him.
