A tale of a not so ordinary wedding anniversary


The road ahead gleamed in silver on account of the rain which was pouring down heavily. The headlights of the passing vehicles broke the silvery monotony with their bright yellow halos. It was quite late in the night and almost approaching midnight. I was on my way home after another breaking day in the office.

I let myself into my apartment and my wife was there as always, ostensibly glued to the television set, but I knew she always waited for my return.

She looked at me as I took off my shoes and thankfully sank into a sofa.

“Kareena got a great anniversary surprise, a diamond necklace from Malabar Gold And Diamonds“, she said.


I ignored the glint of anticipation in her eyes and said, “Oh! that’s just a commercial!”

“Did you hear about Kareena’s pregnancy”? my wife continued as if it was some earth shattering news.

I just shrugged my shoulders and using the Television remote switched from the channel that beamed boring soaps to the News channel.

She gave me a look, which clearly spoke out loudly, “What can I do with this guy”! and made her way to the bedroom.

The clock struck 12, the midnight hour. I switched off the Television set and made my way to the bedroom. She slept soundlessly like a child and the moonlight streaming through the windows lent an ethereal glow to her face. I gently shook her shoulders and awakened her. I held her hand and gently led her out of the bedroom to the living room which I had lit up brightly and decorated with flowers, a small cake with a candle, completed the scene.

She looked around and stared at the huge posters that I had put up around the room.

“Wow! what lovely scenery! and those snow-clad mountains look really amazing”.

She then looked at me with questioning eyes.

“Happy Anniversary dear, we are flying to Switzerland today for an entire week of adventure”. I whispered in her ears.

She looked at me in wonder and said: “You have been scheming behind my back”.

“But I love it”!

  1. That’s a very sweet gesture! It’s really nice when people go the extra mile to celebrate an anniversary with their loved one. This is really nice.

  2. Awe, what an awesome surprise and gift. I would be so happy and in tears of excitement. Was it hard to plan this surprise and how long did you have to keep this secret from her?
