Don’t you have a girl friend?

Hey Kosu, don’t you have a girl friend?” Rajappan asked looking at me.

We were sipping tea and discussing the rain. Suddenly when he asked me this, I was taken aback.

He was still looking at me. I hesitated a little thinking what I should tell him.  Before I could decide what to say, he added, “You know, with the glamour of yours …” 

He shouldn’t have said that.

Yeah. I know it and so do you. But these girls, they don’t know it. Idiots!

I was smiling when I said this.

He was smiling too. He knew he had company.
