Everlasting Love..

Source

“Do you remember the first time we came here?” asked Brad looking fondly at his wife of thirty years.


“Yes…You were so shy and would stammer every time you addressed me. We were in our final year of graduation. Right?” said Anna with a smile that lit up her face.


“I remember rehearsing for hours what to talk to you when I finally got you alone. But when we reached here I found myself strongly tongue tied,” said Brad with a chuckle.


“Yeah..It was the same with me. But those moments were amazing. Though we had a tough time putting words together, it was the most memorable date I ever had,” agreed Anna dreamily.


“Can you believe we have been married for thirty whole years?? It seems just like yesterday that I had gone with you to meet your parents with the intention of asking permission to marry you. Your father was a terror with his in depth questioning. Wanted only the best for his little girl,” said Brad.


“You know what? My mom hated that unclean stubble you sported that day. It was later when she saw you on our engagement party that she eventually became your fan,” said Anna.


“Really, I thought your mom was my fan from day one. And this you tell me after these many years?” asked Brad with a smirk.


“Ho..She liked you alright. But she always hated men who fail to groom themselves properly. According to her men looked proper without that smelly stubble,” said Anna patting Brad’s hands.


“Whatever...This lake and this bench hold so many loving memories. I kissed you for the first time here. Even if I come here alone, I remember you and our love,” said Brad silently thanking god for the best gift god had ever given him.

  6. Your story is nice. Having read quite many pieces on "smelly stubble", I'm beginning to wonder how many people have actually smelled any stubble. :)
