Well, keeping a secret from loved ones is a herculean task for me. Now and then, I have to keep mum for the sake of bringing a smile to the face of my comrades. A similar thing happened to me when I had to hold a secret from my bosom friend. It was the day when we became friends, and people celebrated birthday parties and anniversaries with great pomp and show. I also wanted to bolster my friendship.
My friend name is Guri, and we had spent our childhood together. After senior secondary, he went abroad for his greener pastures, and a couple of days ago, I got the news of his arrival to India. So I thought to make that visit of my friend memorable. I arranged a surprise party in my village. I arranged it in a rustic area because we wanted to experience all childhood memories. Therefore, prior to his arrival, I arranged a cotton candy machine because my friend loved to eat cotton candies alot. Besides, I also constructed a pool to swim in it as we used to do in the past.
I did not invite any other person because I wanted to keep it a clandestine meeting and did all the arrangements on my own. I believe that too many cooks can spoil the broth. I decorated the room with colourful balloons and gave a vintage look to my house. To be honest, when I received my friend and took him to this place, where we had spent our childhood.
My heart could not help weeping. We started to collect our past memories, and my friend wished I were a child again. Really there was a look of ecstasy on our faces. As it was getting dark, we had to go back to our homes. My friend appreciated my efforts in arranging such a lovely surprise. So that was the time when I arranged a secret party for my friend to strengthen our bond.
