The Love of a Man
Santhi was a typical girl from the province when Adhavan met her. He had to go to her town to do a little background check for a possible expansion for his company. At 25, he was already showing great promise as a Civil Engineer, and this project is his first big break.
Although he comes from a rich family, he never let this stop him from pursuing his own dreams. His family wanted him to take over the business once he graduates from college, but he had other plans.
Much to his family’s disappointment, Adhavan decided to carve his own path. Thankfully, after years of being in conflict with his parents, they are finally slowly accepting his decision, and now, they are starting to see that he made the right choice.
Santhi was walking home from the market when she saw a sleek black car stop just inches away from her. She had a good day today, selling all her vegetables in the market. She stopped in her tracks when she saw a handsome young man get off the car and walk towards her.
“Good day to you. Is the town plaza still far from here?” Adhavan inquired. This girl is possibly the most beautiful girl he has ever laid eyes on.
“No, you’re just a few meters away now. Just make a right turn at the corner store and go straight. You won’t miss it.”
“Thank you. I am Adhavan, by the way.” He said, extending his hand.
“My name is Santhi.” She shyly answered, taking his hand to shake it.
She hurriedly said her excuses and walked away from this man who is starting to send goosebumps all over her. She felt something when he took her hand. It was as if an electric current ran down her spine all the way to her legs and she felt weak.
Adhavan went on to work on his project for at least a year in her home town, and everyday, he would pay her a visit and give her gifts. He never failed to show her how much he loves her.
Finally, after a year of courtship, Santhi accepted his proposal. She had never had a relationship before. She didn’t know that the love of a man could consume her whole being and render her helpless and yet happy at the same time. So this is what they call love. She’ll never forget the day she met him. It was the day she fell in love with him.
