She looks down her snooty nose at me. The feisty bitch is in no mood to humour me.
“I was vacationing. In France. And Spain. And Egypt.”
“Vacation?? Vacation?! You’ve been traipsing around the world while I’ve been sitting here waiting for Your Highness to come visit me?!!”
“Why should I come visit you? You don’t care for me as much as I care for you.”
“That’s not true!! You know how much I love you and involve you in every aspect of my life!”
“Ya right! You come for me only when it pleases you! Stop treating me like a whore!”
“Err.. technically, that isn’t possible, you know, since I’m a girl too.”
“You very well know what I meant. You come looking for me only when you are in the mood. You don’t take into account the fact that I may also want to see you every day, or at least a few times a week. Is that too much to ask for??!! I’m hurt!”
“Why didn’t you take me with you?” Full-on pouting.
“I can’t take you with me everywhere, sweety. Please try to understand.”
“See! This is what I meant! You come looking for me only when it pleases you. The other day, I came to you and sat on your shoulder, you didn’t even acknowledge my presence.” Sniffle sniffle.
“Ok ok. Fine. I’m sorry. I won’t do it again. I’ll be more indulgent in future. Ok?”
“You’ll never turn me away?”
“I’ll never turn you away. Promise.”
“You’ll indulge me whenever I come?”
“Yes, I will.” This was getting tiring.
“And you’ll always pamper me and say nice things to me?”
“Yes, I will, my dear.”
“And you’ll buy me pretty purple shoes with diamonds encrusted in them and a pretty purple bag to put my lipstick and blusher in and donuts to eat?”
“Yes I.. What??!!”
“Will you or will you not??!!”
“ Ok ok! I will! Anything you want. Purple shoes, purple sunglasses, donuts, imli candies, fried chicken, Barbie doll, Sonu Sood, the Pyramid of Giza. Whatever it is I’ll buy it for you!! Just come back. Please!”
Meet Miss Feisty. My Muse.
Now I’ve to go shop for purple shoes.
