Naina sung a happy tune. She had discovered that she was in love and that was such a heady feeling. No, it was not first love. She fell in love in periodic intervals and came out of it in weeks. It was not her fault, she thought. Some men were intelligent, some were handsome but as soon as they opened their mouth or as soon as she spent some time with them; her castle in air would fall down. Some were so dumb that they couldn’t carry a conversation, some so smitten by their own good looks that they ignored her and so on. But she knew that Rohit, her current attraction was ‘the one’.
They had common interests of reading and travelling and they could spend hours just talking about the books they had read or the places they had visited too. He was intelligent too. In the company they both worked for, Rohit was thought of as a genius. Look-wise too he was not bad either.
Naina went on singing her happy tune as she washed the dishes. Her mother always saw to it that she helped around the house. Naina may be tired and about to fall down but her mother saw to it that she did her bit even if it meant folding the laundry. ‘I am just training you Naina’, she would say, ‘when you get married, you will have to balance your career and home, isn’t it? I cannot come and do your chores for you’.
Naina did not mind washing the dishes or doing the laundry as long as no one asked her to cook. In fact she found doing the dishes quite therapeutic.
She wiped the last plate and kept it in its place. And walked to her room. On picking her mobile she found 38 missed calls in 10 mins! She wondered what was going on.
Rohit had called her. She smiled. Did it mean that he too was in love with her. He had said earlier in the day that he had something important to tell her. Was this IT. Did he want to confess his love for her? She was certain it was. Didn’t a girl knew when a boy was interested in her. With trembling fingers she dialed his number, he received her call.
‘Where were you Naina, I called you so many times’, he said.
Naina in her silken voice said, ‘Yes, 38 missed calls in 10 minutes. What is the matter Rohit’, she said with a heart that was working overtime.
‘Naina I have invested some money in xxxxx bank. And which needs me to enroll four more and I will get 75 % of my money back instantly. Please please Naina join na, you can enroll four more and you can have your money back instantly too. I have already enrolled three, you will be the fourth one, please Naina.’
Naina sat still with her mouth wide open.

You rounded up the story really well. Your climax was the clincher.
Thanks Jini. How have you been, seen you here after ages
Unexpected, excellent twist, Bhagya! Enjoyed reading!
Glad that u liked it Sandhyakka
nice twist. i would have tried to add 2-3 more lines at end in which naina would have become happy and rohit looked more smart 😛
Ha ha, I wanted it to remain this way. Some stories are just meant to be conveyed without any endings 🙂
Lol! There goes her love… 😀
🙂 Yes. One more down
My first visit here-loved the twist in the end—some people are like that,concerned only with their own affairs.
Yes in every relationship they seek their end 🙂
Thanks Indu and welcome to SS
🙂 Thanks Latha
Ha ha…brilliant post. Men will be men… 🙂
Yes isn’t it 😀
hahah! the ending is so different! interesting 🙂
Welcome to SS, Hummingwords and thank you
OMG!! Men!! Loved the end part, a lot! 🙂
I wonder if the very call made her ponder on her notion that he was the one?No…., what is wrong in using the connections to make some money ,or did it?
She was looking for love; he wanted something else, thats all
Congratulations! I have nominated you for the Liebster award.
