 … filled me today, I was cleaning my desktop, when i came across a un-named folder of pictures. Gripped with curiosity I checked that folder, It had some of our(Me and Z) pictures together, including the one taken on our first Anniversary together here.

Its been 4 months since then, Allowing myself to drift back those months, i remembered …

There were 4 days more to our anniversary, and i dint have any clue on what we were going to do that day. As always Z in his I-wanna-surprise-you mode, was tight-lipped about that. I couldn’t take it then, I wanted to know what ‘Special’ were we gonna do together .. ! On my pleas, Z gave me some hints. We were gonna have a early start that day, so that we could be on road by 9:00 a.m driving crazily to Downtown Toronto(Of-course,stopping for a Tim-Hortons breakfast), where he planned to book a restaurant for lunch and a different for dinner. I did never see Downtown Toronto on foot earlier, and this was an ideal time for it….. I was all excited hearing it, and was LITERALLY counting my days, until ….
It was Eid-ul-Zuha today, Z went out early morning for his Eid prayers. We had a special lunch that day and decided to visit out aunt here, to wish them a Happy Eid too. We dressed up and left, where she served us my fav dessert – Cinnamon cake and some cookies. I got up to help myself and get some for Z too, I gave Z his plate, arranged my plate and walked to take my seat when Suddenly I fell, twisting my knee. I let out a huge cry of pain and cried as long and as hard as i can, for that pain was killing me. It was embarrassing too, crying before my aunt and her family, but my mind wasn’t working then at all. All i could feel was PAIN, throbbing pain.

It was a difficult time, when i couldnt walk atall for a week, Z had to carry me to washroom, to brush my teeth, almost everywhere. Even coming back home from my aunt’s place was a serious project, which couldnt happen that day. The next day Z and my uncle both brought be home, carrying me.

As soon as reality struck me, I realised Its my Anniversary Day-after-tomorrow and we cannot celebrate the way we want. And we did not, Was so engrossed with doctor visits, X-Rays, Mental trauma and stuff, that all we could do was hug and wish each other. Every plan, the excitement was long gone, but I do thank Allah for saving me from any Big thing that day, Though it was a difficult time, I do realise It would have had been much worse, which alhamdulillah wasn’t the case. I aint been unthankful or ungrateful, but the irony of that situation is worth mentioning, basically because Z is a shy and not-showing-much-affection kind of person, That was the time He himself shed his cocoon, but …. Destiny/Fate is something Really, Isnt it ? It took me and Z by surprise, not a pleasant one though … 🙂
