Be my valentine forever

Man! Won’t the line ever move? Bubbling with anxiety, the good kind though, I was restless. The wait was terrible, I have a lot to plan. The cake has arrived and the room has been decorated. While waiting for the bill queue to move, I decided I will check out how my recent travel history in phone looks like. And lo and behold! The message” My Valentine” was displayed beautifully in the map, through the places I have traveled.
I know she is unaware of all the preparations I am making. But I want her to be thoroughly surprised so that she might understand how much I love her. After all that has happened between us, it’s this love that stood through it all and I want the magic to continue.

Be my valentine forever

I started this plan months before, I traveled to all those places for three months to bring the message “My Valentine” on the map. Though lying to her, for those travels have been the worst, it was worth it.
I bought the cake, her favorite strawberry with vanilla layers, decorated the room as much as possible, have ordered the firecrackers guy to burst the crackers with the message “Be my valentine forever”. All that remains now, are the tiny floats and balloons, with my personal poems in it. The billing process is taking longer than usual. I guess everyone in the town has decided to propose to their significant half on this same night that I have chosen. What a bummer!
Luckily after twenty minutes, and a lot of grumbling and mumbling from my side, my turn came. The lady behind the bill desk went through my order of balloons. For a minute I was anxious for her approval. As she is a lady and if she doesn’t approve my choice, then probably my wife might not like it. After all it’s a known fact that only a female can understand the heart of another female (which at times I strongly disagree, but still), after reading my order on her pc, the lady gave me her approval in the form of a wide grin- “she is so lucky”, she said after processing my order.
With a goofy grin on my face and a happy tick in my pace, I hurried to our room, to fill these balloons and keep them ready to be floated at the right moment in the air. The bill counter lady may think, that my wife is the luckiest lady alive, but in reality, it’s me who is lucky to have her.
Anyways, my plan to surprise her is simple, I will stay in the terrace, send her a text with a link to my travel history, and when she calls me back, I will ask her to come to the terrace where I will be waiting with the cake and crackers and the balloons will go off creating the best impression, firsts of many in our life together. Though the plan was simple I was still scary, still hesitant about what will happen if she doesn’t like it?
I shook off all those negative doubts aside and got down to work. It took 2 hours to blow all those balloons and design them in such a way that when I send a signal from my phone both the crackers and balloons will go off simultaneously. It was a complicated circuit but thanks to my years of experience I was able to perfect it.


Now all that remains is her. I went to her room, she was there. I stood at the entrance, for some time, just looking at her, appreciating her simple beauty and elegance from a distance

Now all that remains is her. I went to her room, she was there. I stood at the entrance, for some time, just looking at her, appreciating her simple beauty and elegance from a distance. The machines were beeping producing a constant hum sound, I neared her and I was careful not to step on the tubes she was attached to. Carefully I placed a bouquet of red roses by her bedside and tenderly kissed her in the forehead.
My wife is in a coma for a month now. Days after our marriage she met with an accident and went into a coma. The doctors have declared she will come out of it soon. I am waiting for her to so that I could get a chance to show her how much I love her.
There, near her bedside, I sent her the text, that held the link to my travel history. Then after a few moments, I sent the signal for the crackers and balloons. The sky, outside her window, started to fill with crackers that displayed the message “be my valentine forever” in elegant gold letters, soon all my in-numerous balloons, that held the poems I wrote for her while she was in the coma, filled the sky too. I recorded all this and the cake in a video so that she won’t miss this year valentine’s when she wakes up.
All she has to do now is to wake up and come home- into my waiting arms. All she has to do is to wake up.


All she has to do now is to wake up and come home- into my waiting arms. All she has to do is to wake up.
