Being there for her

“Care to tell me , when is your birthday”? he asked while skimming the jeans’ which had been showcased in the women’s section.

“Day after tomorrow”, she replied and then after a pause” But why are you asking ? You wouldn’t be able to attend it right”?

“Ah this one “, he exclaimed finding the right one for her “What happened”? she asked , concerned for him.

“Uh well I am buying vegetables”, he said to cover ” Now, to answer your previous question, yes I will attend”.

” But I will be able to “, she cut him off ” do it alone “, he completed for her.

” I know you can do it, but behind that facade of a strong woman , there’s a little girl ” , he could hear her sigh ” who , my dear, wants someone to hold her hand while she cuts her cake, to sing a birthday song for her”, he said while passing the jeans along with other goods to the woman standing in the counter section ” And I want to be that someone”, he could imagine her smile. 😊
