The First Selfie 12

I come from a South Indian Bunt family and I am hopelessly in love with a North Indian Kshatriya Rajput.

While everyone expects me to narrate another 2states love story, I am still trying to keep my heartbeat calm around him. We worked together for more than 15 months before we started chatting over WhatsApp.We have had the usual journey of casual friends to close friends to falling in love.He proposed over WhatsApp during one of our long night chats. It was specifically the night after we watched “The Conjuring II”(Let’s not WONDER why or take that personally). Also, it was more like “Let’s try being US”.

After a quick chat we posed for this selfie. While my face looks quite composed and calm, my heart wanted to leap out and run away. My hands were trembling uncontrollably.As a cue, he held my hand firmly and made matters worse.I was glad the selfie was quickly over and hurried off to my event.

A few months later we click another selfie at the same place deliberately for this blog post. I would be exaggerating if I say my heart wanted to run away again. The meditation techniques to keep heart calm have been working.
