Diamonds are not forever

'I love gifts' - I told him 
'I don't'. He replied curtly. 
'I love diamonds and I would love to have a pendant'. - I continued, pretending I didn't hear his reply. 

I knew I couldn't help the twinkle in my eyes. My birthday was around the corner.
'I don't buy gifts'. He avoided looking at me.

The sinking feeling in my heart made my world go standstill. I crumpled the payment receipts I had in my hands. She probably was worth all the diamonds he had gifted. Period.
