The Pursuit— my entry to the Get Published contest

The Idea Description:
  He has been hitting on her for years now and she has been rejecting him for just as long a time. She lived in Mumbai and he in Delhi but when he decides to come to Mumbai for further education, he decides to go full out.
  Tired of refusing and playing the Hard To Get Game, she gives in.
   Will their relationship last or was it just a game of pursuit?

What Makes This Story ‘Real’:
   People often mistake attraction and the challenge to achieve that they are attracted to for true passion and love.
  But is it the same for Keya and Gautam or will circumstances bend for them?

Extract from the story:

Looking around the yacht all, I see are red roses and the water beyond. It can’t get any better than this, I think to myself.
  I lower my eyes to his, where he kneeling down with a bouquet of Orchids—my favourite flower, I just can’t find my usual pessimism when it comes to Gautam.
  Gautam Punjabi has charmed me, that much cannot be denied. 

This is my entry for the HarperCollins–IndiBlogger Get Published contest, which is run with inputs fromYashodhara Lal and HarperCollins India.
