I gazed at the stars, if the empyrean was pitch ebony, would it have looked so pulchritudinous ??? the coruscating stars bestow the magnificence of the empyrean. I can spend a protracted period gazing at it because it seems like the days before…me in his arms, the vivacity in his eyes is just like the stars to me. That moment with him, taking a gander at the sky felt just like the time had halted…

I met him at a wedding. My mother had bugged me to accompany her. I used to be a gauche person, who didn't verbalize much and a lady who has only a few guy friends. I always felt uncomfortable around a gathering. As my mother began greeting people, I was worn out of giving counterfeit smiles and saying lies that I remember them. Because the throng was getting more and more, I simply needed to sit down at a corner aloof from it. I told my mom I will sit at a corner, and she can acquaint me when her conversation gets over. I proceeded and settled down. I was just contemplating all the excitement and fervor people felt meeting one another after such an extended time after the pandemic. The pandemic had generated an alarm throughout the planet. People couldn't go out. They had to remain at home and aloof from each other. I was lost in my world until my mom called me out. I was like at last, it's over. Just as I was going to ask her how much more I have to stay here, I saw someone with her. It was an uncle who looked somewhat more seasoned than my mother. My mother introduced him as her relative. The uncle inquired about some general things and said that his son was doing higher studies and went on. It was like he was eulogizing about his son. I just took a glance at my mother because I knew she will nag at home saying how he is so passionate about his work while I am still unemployed endeavoring to get into a decent college for my higher studies. Then he asked me to converse with his son. His son happened to be verbalizing to someone nearby and came as he was called. As he came strolling, I couldn't help to take my eyes off him. It was not his looks that grabbed my attention. It was that, when our eyes met, I felt like we were familiar with each other. There was this magnetic pull towards him. I attempted to conceal this from them. The guardians left us to talk. I was unable to talk. It felt like how the female protagonist felt when their crush is in front of them. I felt butterflies in my stomach.

Being this introvert girl, this just made it more cumbersome. He, I speculate found it off-kilter that I was being this quiet. On the other hand, he initiated verbalizing. He started asking about what I was doing. As I answered, I was thinking that now he will start hailing himself. But then he encouraged me to do what I wanted. He let me know, he too had sat a year preparing for examinations for higher studies. He disclosed how people asked him to work and prepare. But he knew he couldn't manage it. As he talked, I was unable to help to talk as well. I always wanted someone to haul me out of my carapace I had created around me. During my school and college days, I was simply passing by as my friends had sweethearts. It was for the foremost part by hiding in this carapace. At the point when I attempted to converse, people found it awkward or I thought they did. So, I kept myself shut further within the carapace. What's more, this individual before me just hauled me out of my carapace. I wondered if he thought I was special because he seemed the affable sort. After we talked, we got occupied in the marriage proceedings and left. I knew that moment that I shared with him will be with me forever. And as someone said, " Destiny is a mysterious force, that none can comprehend".

I got into a good College and now parents were cerebrating of sending me to another house after marriage. I was occupied studying and just came home on weekends. One such weekend I saw that my home had few guests. So, as I came in, I just thought to acknowledge them quickly and get away to my room. To my jubilant surprise, he was standing in front of me. All these years, his words of inspiration had helped keep me persuaded even when people around me were endeavoring the reverse. I was again having butterflies in my stomach. I smiled at his parents, and they extolled me for getting into such a good College. I smiled at him too as he verbally communicated the equivalent. I excused myself saying I needed to spruce up. After spruce up, I attempted to tune to what they were discussing without going into the room. As I was attempting my mother saw me, she asked me to come. I came and that is the point in wherein I fathomed that they had come with a marriage proposal. Who is the anticipated groom?

It was him. They allowed us to talk. Furthermore, as we spoke, I realized he was the one to complete me. He was the one who could make me have this special feeling that I never felt before. We got engaged within a couple of months. And afterward got married. He invigorated me to work even after marriage. He is this person, who considerably after such a protracted time still makes my heart race when he looks at me. He makes me feel special and cherished. He is consistently there when I require him. It is like we could understand even our unsaid words. I could comprehend when he needed me and when he needed space. I did not have to contribute any extraordinary exertion. Things simply happened. Once, I had asked him what he relished in me. It was consistently an inquiry in my mind. Anybody would succumb to him. He was driven, successful, and handsome…the rundown would go on if I had to mention it all. But why would he choose me? His reply was "I love you because you are you". He just smiled subsequent to stating that. Though I never truly comprehended his answer, I'm jubilant to be loved and to be a part of the lifetime of such a sublime man.

And today as we view the sky, we've got another companion, our little son who looks just his father. I trust that one day he grows up to resemble his dad. And for me, this moment is precious. We are complete. I'm complete

First, just to get this out of the way, this story's plot, setting, and grammar was perfect! Beautiful story. But, when you use words like "verbalize" instead of "talk", it more or less confuses the reader. I know other people mentioned this, but maybe use more of everyday words, and make your sentences shorter if they can be. One more tiny thing, at the start you use three question marks to show confusion, but one would work fine, trust me. But again, this is a great story!

You have written a very cheerful tale. Lighter than a Disney movie, it is a romance like cherry soda. Sweet and bubbly but lacking something fundamental. The protagonist lacks agency. Yes, she works to get into a good college, but you never show that and only touch on it briefly. Everything else which happens occurs because of him, the man she meets. So either focus on her struggle to get into college and reward her with the man of her dreams at the end, or have her take a more active role. or stick with a light piece which will attract ...

Much obliged to you for your assessment. I will remember to quit rehashing words and keep it short. Likewise, as you mentioned I will attempt to form my story into something fundamental. About using certain words in the setting was not done purposefully to make it look elegant, however, to make it unique. Much obliged to you for taking the effort to peruse and calling attention to the necessary enhancements I have to make. I value the direction given by you that will most likely assist me in my future writing pursuits.
