A day after the groom and the bride parted ways, the bride and groom’s friends sat down to a meal together.
The guests, who were seated on the same couch, ate and talked, and then the groom began to tell the story of his life.
He recounted his father, the first groom in the family to go to college, a childhood spent in an orphanage and his first job, as an embroiderier in a museum.
“I was very happy with my wedding,” he said.
“I knew that I wanted to spend the rest of my life here in India.
I have so many friends here and have done so many weddings.
I didn’t want to be the last one in my family to have a wedding.
I didn’t go to weddings because I was happy.
I wanted more.
I was thinking about my future.
I am in a hurry and wanted to be together for a long time.”
The bride, in her wedding dress, had already left the restaurant when the guests arrived.
The couple exchanged pleasantries before heading back to the hotel.
A few hours later, the guests returned and were greeted by a familiar face.
It was the groom.
The bride and the groom’s family, dressed in black, were waiting for them outside.
The bride and her family were very happy.
They had a very good time.
The guests said the groom was very nice.
The groom said that they should meet at his place.
A little while later, when they arrived at his house, they were greeted with a long list of questions.
“Why did you marry me?” they asked.
“Where did you come from?”
“What is your occupation?”
“How did you get married?”
“Why did we come here?”
The bride was a very happy woman.
She said she felt good.
“It was a good night.
I think that it is a good thing.
I feel better now.”
When the guests were done speaking to the bride, she asked the guests to come to her house.
The family sat on the couch in silence.
The groom and his family returned to the restaurant to sit and eat, and after a few minutes, the couple left.
A few minutes later, a couple from the wedding party came to the wedding table and asked the bride to join them for dinner.
A short while later the bride arrived and the guests had dinner together.
When the groom had finished, the hostess invited them in to watch the fireworks.
She told them that she wanted to show them the sunset in her own way.
“There was so much to do for this wedding,” the groom said.
“It was so fun to go through so many different rituals together,” the bride said.
