It had been few months that Anikon Lawrence and Myra Aniston were committed. They spent every weekend together and hated it when Monday arrived as they had to work. Anikon was an architect in Henry office and Myra was a software engineer. Their offices were far apart and so they would hardly meet after work. Both of them loved spending time with each other and would speak for hours together. Anikon knew it was time for them to take their relationship to another level. He was trying to say Myra few times now. They planned picnic for the weekend. Anikon was driving Porsche tapping his fingers on steering wheel to the beat of the song. "You seem so happy today" Myra said. "I'm always happy when you're with me honey." Myra smiled They went to beach side. It was a beauteous evening, calm and free. They walked until the tide was full and the moon lied fair. Walking up the long beach holding hands, "It's just wonderful being here with u" said Myra. Anikon smiled and went on his knees. And said "Myra will you mar....." Myra said "YES" without him completing his question. "Let me completely ask you. Will you marry me Myra Aniston?" "yes yes I will marry you Anikon Lawrence".He then placed d ring on her left ring finger. She kept her hands on his neck and stared at him. He said I love you Myra. "I love you too" and placed her soft lips on his. They had a passionate kiss. She then hugged him placing her head on his chest, she could hear his heart racing, that is so Anikon she thought. They had decided everything for their marriage, even the date was picked. Myra and few of her colleagues had to go out of state for presentation and she was selected to give presentation in California. She had to go just for 2 days, so everything was fine. A day before Myra leaving to California she got a call from hospital saying Anikon was admitted. She left her work and ran to see him just to find out he had got cancer and was in his final stage and it was hard to save him. She was broke. She tried cancelling her business trip but since all other employees were engaged in other states they couldn't find any one but her. Her parents stayed with Anikon as his parents were out of state. Tears rolled off her eyes as though they had no idea of ever stopping. Myra, finally spoke "you are getting cured. No matter what. If you die, I'm coming with u. We'll be together always". Anikon wiped her tears and said "you are one strong woman I have ever met; you can't lose hope so easily. Go do your presentation well; I'll be waiting for you here and I love you" "I love you so much Anikon " told Myra holding his hands. Myra's dad gave her kiss on her temple and dropped her to airport. Two days went like forever for Myra. She was in contact with family constantly. She could hardly concentrate on anything. She kept praying every minute of the day. The day she had to leave California was the day Anikon had his major therapy. She left California and was in airport for way back home and that's when she realized she forgot her phone in hotel. She wanted to ask how Anikon was before her flight took off. There was no way she could go to the hotel as it would take forever to come back and thus her tension began. Anikon's therapy was almost done by then and if successful he would be alive. Myra didn't have any way to contact them now. She was dying with tension. She reached hospital and rushed to the ward. But it was empty. Her heart sank. She almost fainted until she herd her father call her. She turned to ask where is Anikon. Her eyes rolled tears as she saw her dad coming towards her. She cried out loud "Anikon" seeing him on bed with a nurse holding. Anikon opened his eyes with pain; the therapy was success after all. Thank God she said. And never left hospital until he was discharged. "I am so sorry Anikon " cried Myra " I promise you to never ever leave you alone, ever again! I love you a lot Anikon " Anikon smiled through his pain listening to soothing words of Myra.
