“I am asking you one last time__is it a yes or no?”
He mulled that over while his hands turned moist, his heart beats jumping up and down like an unhinged yo yo; her palpitating breath on the other end of the line doing nothing to lessen the agony.
True, he liked her nee loved her, she being everything he had ever dreamt of in a girl but…
That she was a gorgeous looking ever bubbly girl with a great career ahead of her; or that she had a obnoxious snob of a stinking multi-millionaire for a/ father who thought of him as just another vermillion no gooder out to entrap his only daughter for the undreamt of riches that follow, or the fact that she wanted him to relocate to America so that “they could start life afresh away from this squalor and decay”.
After what seemed like a very long time he spluttered out the only words that he knew, chicken that he was__’No’.
