How long were you in the queue?
we had to queue up for an hour for the grocery
as long as we know that small shop only sells food and other things used in the home, so you are here for some grocery?what you are going to buy?
dreams? at grocery store?
are you mad?
your noisy child have need some attention could you pay some attention? why he is making noise?
what do you know? your child is starving!
He’s off his food
how you will pay the grocery bill? as you are skint!
Don’t interfere in what doesn’t concern you
It concerns me that you no longer seem to care.
(she went quiet)
you tried to turn your dream of running your own business into reality?
(but I conceded that my teasing is getting beyond a joke as she did not get the joke)
I dreamt that I got the world
world? you mean this world? Trust you to dream up a crazy idea like this!
are you crazy?
I don’t know, but only thing i know that I’m a mother and being a mother I feel a strong sense of responsibility towards my children!
your responsibility being a mother is a different story but I remembered you were talking about your dreams!
both are exactly the same
(she were quiet)
what do you do for living? do you have enough money to pay the grocery Bill? I can lend you some money till tomorrow!
sorry I haven’t need!
you have a lot of money to spend?
(I saw her clenched fist, she won’t drop a coin. it seems, she is having a power in her clenched fist!)
do you want come to power?
I won’t political control of a country or an area, I won’t power or to seize anything. I won’t rule the earth or world! I have little and small dreams!
It is not within my power to help myself! I suppose we should be grateful for small mercies
Why don’t you work?
No, I don’t work, my husband has passed away last week I don’t know exactly how we’ll manage it, but we will, somehow
(she started to weep uncontrollably)
Oh sorry to hear! I just can understand!
his sudden death dealt a blow to the whole family
I don’t know how to deal with issues and problems but I have to manage all that without him
(She struggled hard to control her unruly emotions)
Please pay some attention to your child, Small children have a very short attention span.
(she went quiet. her body were covered with weeping sores. she’s seem deserving pity and sympathy!)
your child making a lot of noise, he looked half starved, I know the people
they provided food and shelter for the poor, you should go and see them!
(she were not supposed to listen more as she passed me in the store without even saying bye)
What do want?
(store keeper asked the woman behind the counter)
(her child was still making lots of noise, he was starved)
do you have some money?
(she looked around, there were not any body, only i was standing in the store and the distance was not measured in miles!)
(she saw her clenched fist)
that only coin u have?
sorry but it’s not enough to get some milk
Listen, my child is starved
I need some milk!
madam, a thing that is worth, you have to pay money for it
I will pay later
Are you paying in cash or by credit card?
(He burst out laughing)
Will your dad lend you the money?’ ’Don’t make me laugh!
Please try to understand, my child needs some milk‘Oh, you poor thing.’
I haven’t large amount of money at the moment but..
you are in financial difficulties, that coin you are having in clenched fist It isn’t worth much but i know how much is this body worth?
What do you mean? she was stunned
You know what I mean! This idea is well worth considering!
your child is really hungry!
that poor lady were quiet!
Keep the door closed! store will not open for a period of time for the public!
store keeper looked at me and i moved quietly!
