â€œBut you donâ€™t understand Avi. I need the money.â€
â€œSandy I understand your needs, but tell me one thing. Did you come to this city thinking that you would enrol yourself to be the escort for some unscrupulous foreigner who just wants to have a good time here? No right? Tell me, what made you come into this big city? Tell me your dreamsâ€ Avi lowered his voice a bit and looked deep into her eyes as if searching for some answers.
â€œAvinash. Please, donâ€™t do this to meâ€ sobbed Sandhya.
â€œYou know, I am qualified enough to impart some lessons to school children, but over here nobody gives me a job.â€ She continued in between the sniffing and the sobbing, â€œI have lost count of the number of interviews Iâ€™ve attended and the number of applications Iâ€™ve sent out. I have a family to feed Avi. I canâ€™t let them suffer because of meâ€
â€œSandy, let me help you. I will find you a job that does not require you to sacrifice your dignity. I had wanted to help you out in any manner possible and that is the reason I agreed to interview you back then. Wait let me show you somethingâ€ he said, fishing out his phone from his pocket.
â€œLook at this girl. So lost in thought she is, she is unaware of what is happening around her, so bright is her spirit you can almost feel her warmth from afar. Wait let me show you another one. There, look at the expression on your face!â€
Instead of getting angry at Avi for clicking her pictures without her permission, Sandhya guffawed out.
Avi looked at her kindly while Sandhya wiped off her tears and turned to smile at him.
Oh man! Look at her dimples, I could swim around in those forever!
