I don’t remember when was the last time a guy (or anyone else, for that matter) asked me if I have enough money. So it’s kind of surreal when he asked me that the other night. “Do you have enough money? You want me to leave you some?” He was going back to his hometown for 4 days for Diwali.
He is neither rich nor come from a rich family. He earned a decent amount of money every month but then he also has to bear a lot of responsibilities – paying bills as well as supporting family back home. Every month is a struggle to make ends meet. Yet, on top of all this, he is concern about my well-being.
The thing is, this is not about the money. It is about him being kind and caring. About him actually is thoughtful enough to make sure that I am going be fine when he is away, though it is only for that few days.
Surely for his age, he is way mature in thoughts than any guy I have been with before.
Till today, when I look back – I still wonder which side of the bed I woke up on that morning our eyes met.
