History repeats itself on her birthday!

Birthday… A day on which we try to make it memorable for our loved ones by doing various crazy and unexpected things 😛 And when that crazy or unexpected idea turns out to be a blooper, ah! How bad it feels!! The same day, last year, my idea to wish her had remained only an idea in my head; as I had slept at the last moment before 12 midnight. And this year, I slept (Yes! Again!!) due to which I fell short of time to execute the plan I had planned for her…
This is how it happened…
A few days before her birthday:
She reminded me of her birthday by sending some crazy message about her birthday month… (She’s loves her birthday so much, I tell ya! :D) So I had checked my memory calendar and came to know that yes, her birthday was near… I thought of various ideas, but just as all the beautiful girls are always taken, all the brilliant ideas were so boring now… I wanted to do something out of the line, something she will never expect, something I will never expect either! 😛
For getting such an idea from my mind, the only way I had was to put it on ‘auto-pilot’ mode 😛 (It means that if I think about it and try to make some idea, my mind just won’t help me with anything. And if I just let go and let my mind work for itself, at the last moment, but at the right time, it will pop with some brilliant plan along with the procedural instructions :D)
Hence, I put the thought of getting such an idea aside…
One day before her birthday:
I was working at office. It was 2 hours past the normal office ending time, quite the usual in this era of Office-slavery… All of a sudden my stomach reminded me to leave the office and go for search of food. So, I got up and left the office. While eating, I saw the time. It was 9:32 pm. My mind worked its magic… The plan was to go to her house, call her up on her terrace and surprise her with me wishing her birthday in the moonlight and cool breeze… I thanked my mind and was amazed at such a brilliant idea, cuz, this would certainly be both unexpected and gleesome for her!
I bought some chocolates for her and went home. Planned my voyage, for it was a quite a distance from my place to hers, took all the necessary things and put it ready (my usual habit before traveling anywhere)… I checked my watch it was 9:48. I had some time before I would leave for the 30 minutes journey to her place. Plus I had to complete my plan before 12 midnight as other people would start wishing her from that time, so I didn’t want any hindrance in my plan. I calculated the time for departure by reverse calculation and got that I should leave at 11:00 to reach their just on time…
I had an hour… So I sat on my couch and closed my eyes to think about the possible scenarios that would happen in one hour… I opened my eyes that I should probably put an alarm or something, so that I do not get late, but then thought that I am awake so there’s no need of an alarm, I thought I would leave early to give me some dry run time there.
I would be reaching there at 11:30 probably. I would sneak up to the terrace. There I would arrange the chocolates and one candle that I had with me. I would keep the match stick ready in my hand, probably more than one. ‘Cuz I anticipated the weather to be windy that day. I would arrange it in such a way that I would hold the chocolates in ‘card-holding’ pattern in my hand and the candle would stay on top of it. Then at 12, I would call her and tell her that I have arranged by someone to place a parcel at your terrace, so go and check it out!
She would be so excited and she would run to terrace to check it out. But just before the last steps of terrace, she would get scared of the dark and that would be the time for me to light up the candle. I would stand right besides the entrance, hidden in the dark. As she would enter the terrace from the door, she would find me standing with my chocolates and candle and she would probably freak out in happiness! I will pull her towards me, and in her ears I’d sing – “Happy Birthday to you… Happy Birthday to you…” And then very softly whisper at the end of the song – “Happy birthday P!!”. I didn’t imagine her reactions to this, as I wanted it to be a surprise to me… But I knew, she would totally love it!!
My roommate woke me up… “Weren’t you gonna go for some birthday party or what!?”
I checked my watch and it was 11:41…
I assume my expressions were epic at that time, ‘cuz my roommate continued laughing like a maniac till the time I left my house… probably in a minute or two.
I drove like I had a million dollar bounty on my head… I continued cursing me all the way to her home for sleeping and making my mind’s brilliant plan a total fiasco!! I even said “I am totally disappointed of you…” to myself and made several weird and disgusting faces at me!!
I reached at her place and checked time – it was 12:04… I thanked the government for building good highway and went on.
I climbed up to terrace and made my arrangements. I called her… RING… DISCONNECTED. I called again… RING… DISCONNECTED! Again… RING… DISCONNECTED! (Now my patience was broken!) RING… DISCONNECTED!!! (Ah! I wanted to throw my phone to the ground as hard as I could, but I always put that intentions away as then I would have to earn to but a new one… (Office-stress scares and helps)
I called to someone else whom I knew would be there with her… She picked up. “WHY THE HELL ARE YOU NOT PICKING UP YOUR PHONE!!!” words started rushing out of my mind as I continued my desperate attempts to turn the fiasco in to success, even though I knew inside that I had failed…
After convincing her to come up to the terrace, I eagerly waited for her. I knew she would get scared at the last moment and that would be the time for me to light the candle… Everything was ready… My plan can still work, after all, I was just a few minutes late than my expected time…
Her footsteps were audible… I started lighting the candle. The wind was a little more than I anticipated. I tried several times and finally got it to work. I thought by this time she would be standing in front of me, but she was no where to be found. I went below to check and she had gone back to her house as she was too scared!! *BRB*
I didn’t know what I felt at that time… That was anger ‘cuz she didn’t come up or frustration ‘cuz my flunked attempts were not working or sadness ‘cuz my plan to make this day special for her was now a dream…
I went downstairs to her house, and then I behaved as I behaved on that pilot-mode… ‘Cuz those mixed feelings were hard to handle. I really felt bad…
Then the stereo-typed celebration was done with a cake and wishes and I returned back home… She was more than happy that I tried my best to make her day special; but inside somewhere, I was disappointed as I could have done amazingly better than this and she would have loved that moonlight wish…
I closed my eyes (while driving) and imagined all her expressions that earlier I had skipped… They were awesome… She had shouted on seeing me with joy and amazement! When I had pulled her and sang that song in her ears, she had given her best smile and had hold my arms in excitement! Then when I finally wished her birthday, she cried a little in happiness… That smile and tears combo was so amazing that I wanted to capture that scene into my camera, but still we don’t have that technology to capture dream pictures 😛
I reached home and thought about the episode… (Mr. Fate, I’m gonna kill you if ever I find you !!)
