But the sweet seducing retort from her side was too much for me to handle and the next moment we entered a jewellery shop.A man in his mid fifties waljed up to me and said,"Can I help you sir?"... "I'm looking for a special ring for my girlfriend," I said.
He looked through the stock and took out an outstanding ring priced at Rs.25,000/-.My heart bounced up with a shock. But I did not want her to know that I am going through a mental trauma. So I said,"I don't think you understand-I want something very unique,"
"Why does she have to make me a pauper?", I thought to myself.I did not have a single paisa more than Rs. 5000 with me.But I could not lose the battle in front of my girl and hence I told the jeweller that I would take it. She clenched my arm in adoration and the air between us intensified.
"How are you paying?" asked our jeweler."I'll pay by check; but of course the bank will want to make sure that everything is in order, so I'll write a check and you can phone the bank tomorrow(Saturday), and then I'll fetch the ring on Monday.Me and my girlfriend left the shop.She rested on my shoulder while I drove back for a romantic evening.
Monday morning, I woke up because of my ringing mobile phone.
Me: Hello! Who is this?
Jeweller: I am calling #### Jewellers
Me: What can I do for you?
Jeweller:You lied, there's no money in that account.
Me:I know, sorry, but can you imagine what a FANTASTIC weekend I had?
