When Flowers Saved my Friendship

I have only heard it before but realized later on that we hurt those people the most who matter to us the most. Probably, it is the love that turns venomous when we are angry. But it is still love; it just changes its appearance and effect: instead of giving pleasure, it gives pain. I had a terrible fight with one of my best friends, Kritika. There was a misunderstanding between me and her, and I chose to stick to my argument, completely neglecting her point of view. But, thankfully, I came to my senses, and a timely idea helped me patch up with my pal.

Two days after the ugly argument, I gathered the courage to send her a WhatsApp message. She didn’t read it for over 24 hours. The next day I took a deep breath and called her number but she didn’t pick up my call. I called her 10 times from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. that day. She was really angry with me. I decided to go straight to her home after my college the next day. Her mother opened the door and ushered me to the drawing room. What can be the worst punishment a person can give to the other? That is not opening the door when you go to meet him/her.

Carrying courage on my face, I stood outside her door and started to apologies. The monologue went on for about an hour. Kritika didn’t utter any word or sound of acknowledgement. I was disheartened and left.

I couldn’t sleep well at night. I am hurt but I know for her to react in such a manner I must have hurt her more. Having expressed my regret verbally, which didn’t really work, I started to think of getting help from outside. I decided to order flowers online as an outside help could really play the role of a savior in saving our friendship. Kritika was an admirer of natural beauty, and she simply adored flowers.

Rose is one of the most charming and mesmerizing flowers, and I was sure that it would cheer my friend up. I didn’t have any prior experience of sending flowers online, but I would like to take a risk and buy rose flower online. After many disappointing experiences with the roadside vendors, I didn’t want to deal with them at all.

Enquiring from a few friends, I got references of some good websites. In all the references, as regards the quality and speed of online flower delivery, most people recommended shopcrazzy. I browsed the entire website. Along with the flowers, these people also provided a great variety of cakes, soft toys and other special gifts. The marvelous array of flower bouquet online amazed me. After looking at many beautiful flowers, I ordered 25 pink roses for my childhood buddy.

I told Kritika’s mother to expect delivery of flowers. I also requested aunty to keep the flowers in Kritika’s room in case the flowers come in her absence. Pink is Kritika’s favorite colour, and I hoped that pink works its magic. I kept an eye on my phone all through the day, and after 11 p.m., as I started to give up hope, I received a smiley on WhatsApp.
