This week’s photo prompt is provided by Louise with The Storyteller’s Abode. Thank you Louise!

After the festivities and the large amalgamation of friends and family that Indian weddings consist of, the newlyweds were finally left to themselves. Like in most cases, theirs was an arranged marriage. They had lived in the same city for almost 25 years of their lives oblivious of each other’s existence.

The visit to this beach was obviously not her first one. She had come here with her family & friends. But today it evoked different emotions in her, she looked at her partner who would her constant companion in thick and thin (she hoped so) from now on.

Sharing a packet of groundnuts, gazing at the lighthouse and admiring the beauty of the sea, they chattered shyly. Lets trust each other and be broad minded like this ocean, she prayed fervently.

A year later, on the eve of their first anniversary, flipping through the pages of her prized album, catching a glimpse of this picture brought back truckloads of emotions to the fore. Touch wood, is all that she muttered!

  1. I really liked how you described that scene at the beach with the newlyweds. I could feel the nervousness of both of them and I think you did a great job especially on writing about this topic.
