Two weeks later, Shivaay’s birthday came.
Annika: Happy birthday Shivaay!
Shivaay: Thanks Annika.
Annika: If you don’t mind, can we go to the restaurant tonight. I will also give you my gift there.
Shivaay: Sure. Chinese right?
Annika: How do you know?
Shivaay: It’s you who told me that you love Chinese food.
Annika: You remembered?
Annika: Okay, don’t forget to be ready at 7.30 pm. Then we will go to the restaurant together.
They went to the restaurant and Annika was so nervous.
Annika: Choose whatever you want as it’s your birthday!
Shivaay: No, just take something that you like for me too as you are a specialist in Chinese food. You must know what’s good and what’s not.
Annika: Okay then.
Shivaay: And, this morning you told me that you will give my gift here no?
Annika: Just wait till I come back from the toilet.
Shivaay was waiting impatiently and Annika came back.
Annika: Close your eyes!
She took the gift and tended it to him.
Annika: You can open now!
Shivaay: A box?
Annika: Yes but not the one you are expecting. Just open it!
Shivaay opened it. It was a surpirse box where a lot of chocolate and photos of them were in it. There was also a little box in the middle. When he opened the little box he was very shocked. There was a picture of them two when they were kids.
Shivaay: So you knew it??!
Annika: Do you remember the day we went to your parent’s house? I heard your mom calling you Billu just as I used to call you. Then we discussed about it and I just came to know that you were my Billu. And also, the day I was leaving to London I left my diary on purpose so you could read it! I was too scared to tell it so I thought if I wrote it in my diary you would atleast come to know about my feelings.
Shivaay: So I am the one who was fooled all these days?
Annika: Well… we can say it so….
Shivaay: I also have something for you!
He gave her the shell necklace back.
Shivaay: It’s the necklace that you gave to me the day you left me.
Annika: Don’t you remember what my grandmother said? « When you see someone that you love a lot give it to him ». I think you should keep it!
Shivaay: So, what do you mean?
Annika: Do you really don’t understand or are you acting like you don’t understand?
Shivaay: I love you!
Annika started to blush.
Shivaay: I’m gald I have you in my life and don’t want to loose you. However you are I will always love you!
Annika: I am the one who is lucky. Even if I searched in my entire life, I wouldn’t have found a perfect man like you. I love you too!
