The two had a lot in common and that was the problem. They fought over each thing tremendously as each had a strong opinion on each thing they had in common.
“I sometimes wish that we were different from each other. At least, we wouldn’t be fighting over everything,” Ishika said holding her head in frustration. They had been fighting for hours now and she was close to tears.
Karan’s eyes were also shining with the water in them. ‘Not again,’ his mind seemed to scream.
“Why do we fight so much? We are supposed to be perfect for each other!” He whispered, more to himself than her.
“Ha! Perfect,” Ishika said bitterly.
“Should we just break up?” Karan asked for what would be their tenth break up.
Ishika looked at her wide-eyed. She was already at the edge and this statement from Karan elicited a laughter and tears from her.
Karan looked at Ishika laughing and crying at the same time confused for a bit before it dawned on him. He swore.
He sat down on the bed, hands holding his head, and swore some more.
Ishika sat down on the floor, completely broken, tears flowing without pause and a grin on her face.
Karan dropped from the bed and sat beside her wiping her tears.
“We are screwed,” Karan said.
“Yes,” Ishika replied.
“Did we get married too quickly?”
“After five years of dating, forced by our parents. Yeah!”
“You look beautiful in this wedding dress. Red suits you.”
Ishika looked at Karan and smiled at him. They are gonna be fighting each other for life now.
“I love you,” Karan said.
“I love you too,” Ishika replied.
“Welcome to the first night of marriage.”
