Eternal.

You’re so beautiful”
“Mmmm…”
“No, really! You look so perfect, just lying there in this light. God, I love you.”
“Nikhil!! Let me sleep! It’s 5 in the morning! I have to go to work!”
“Don’t go today, please?”
“You’re such a bully!”
“I know, Chandra, I know. But that’s why you love me!”
“Don’t flash that smile at me!”
“Okay, let’s make a deal. You stay in today, and I’ll ask for leave day after. That way we’ll have a nice, extra-long weekend. Friday’s a bank holiday, remember? It’s such a special day today. How can you possibly think of sitting in office, knowing that I’m right here, pining away for you, after having lied to my boss? Then you’ll come back all tired, and won’t even enjoy the dinner I’m making for you.”
“Nikhil….”
“You’re not even giving me my breakfast in bed…”
“Ha! So this is what all this blackmail was about? And I was actually going to call in sick…”
“No no no! Chandra, I didn’t mean that!”

“It’s 6.00 A.M, Mr.Kapoor, and here is your breakfast in bed, just the way you like it! Brought to you by the woman you bullied to death for it…”
“Come here, you!…..”

“Nikhil, I could lie here with you forever”
“You have, don’t you remember? I love you. Happy 50th anniversary……”
