I was crazy about her at one time. Do you mind? Does it alter anything between us?” he asked anxiously, but then continued, “It didn’t last very long though. We spent more time fighting and arguing than loving. In the end I told Norma I just couldn’t take it anymore. She was very upset with me at first, but…..”
“You ditched Norma?” I interrupted excitedly. “It wasn’t she who broke off as she wants everyone to believe?”
Amit looked uncomfortable. “It’s been over for a long time, so what does it matter who dumped whom?”
I continued to look at him, questioning. Suddenly he realized what I was hinting at. “You mean this could be her pay back for dumping her?”
“Oh yes. I do.” I confirmed forcefully.
“There is one more thing about Norma I would like to tell you Amit. There is speculation going around at work, people are talking and wondering how she could afford to wear designer clothes and fancy jewelry, drive an imported car and live in a condo on her salary?” I challenged him.
By now I was fully charged up.
“Amit, I think I know now how she does it.”
“Does what Daisy?”
“How she could afford to live beyond her means.”
I stopped to let it sink in. Amit still had a question mark look on his face. The silence stretched between us for a long moment.
Amit shook his head. “No, I think you are wrong Daisy. I don’t believe she had played any part in framing me. She won’t stoop to that level, not after what we had meant to each other before our break up. Are you jealous of her, and of what was once between us?”
I bit my lip, not trusting myself to reply sensibly. How stubborn and short sighted can a man be. Just because he had a relationship with a woman, she can do no wrong.
He must have guessed what I was thinking. He leaned across and covered my hand with his. “I don’t give a damn about Norma, Daisy. It’s you I care about.” He whispered softly, squeezing my fingers gently. The look in his eyes as he said that made me dizzy. ******
