‘I wish Sam you were as romantic as Shah Rukh,’ Dia says.
‘You mean, I am not?’ asks Sameer taken aback.
‘Just look at Shah Rukh. As if he has nothing else to do and the girl is his world. He has the girl in his arms and those words are so beautiful,’ she says.
‘Listen, the guy gets paid to do this. You should probably check with his wife what he does in real life.’
‘Forget real life. Can you say something nice and poetic for me just like Shah Rukh?’ Dia asks.
‘Hmm.. give me few days. I cannot have something at the spur of the moment. The song is also written over days and so sounds perfect,’ says Sameer.
‘Oh! You are killing the romance. Forget the technicalities,’ says Dia.
‘Mmmm, forget it. You are just pulling my leg. Besides, I find it superficial. You know I love you and I do not have to declare it all the time, not to you and definitely not to the world.’
End of discussion, thought Dia.
The next morning when Dia woke up, there was a note beside her pillow. It had ‘I LOVE YOU’ written in big, bold letters decorated with a few tiny hearts and smileys.
