Love at first sight.. on the most beautiful bracelet I had seen. It had all my favorite colors. The pattern was delicate.
The price was outrageous. But I knew I had to own it. At any cost. Even if it meant I go hungry for the next 2 days.
And that is how I bought my love home, even though the affair was just a few minutes in the billing counter.
The prettier it gets, the tougher it is to flaunt.
I spend the next 6 hours trying to clasp it on my hands. Desperately.
After the multiple futile attempts I decided to venture out and knock on his door.
'I need you to clasp this on my hands for me. Please'.
Apparently it was funny. Cause he couldn't stop laughing.
He was still amused. Even long after I left the place, with the bracelet still in my bag.
The lady in the counter questions me 'But I thought you totally loved this piece when you got it'.
'Yeah. But you really should put a tag on it - Not suitable for singles/living alone'.
I think she understood. Without another word, she processed the returns and the money was back onto my card.
The bracelet was back in the safe corner of the shelf. Now I know why it was still there, all this while, despite being so beautiful.
I was just taking a stroll in the aisle with no particular intention in mind.
