God reveals That Girl!
She’s 51 years old while I’m 29. Oh my, she’s so beautiful and perfect and her voice..
Her voice is the sweetest voice I’ve ever heard.
She offers her daughter to me but I’m interested in the mother and we fall in love..
I start meeting Dr. Pritima regularly.
I make sure I wear best perfume and I dress to impress and my magic was .. working wonders.
God had shown me a movie to teach me a few more etiquettes of handling ladies. It was the Hollywood movie, Fright Night. I learned the taste of good dress and gentleman manners from the vampire!
Remember what he says to Charlie: “Don’t lose your temper, Charlie.. It isn’t polite!”
How cool, how mindful.. Jerry Dandrige is definitely the epitome of a gentleman!
One day, Pritima asks me to visit her after hours.
When I arrive at her gynaecology clinic at closing time, I notice how it’s crowded.
The Filipino attendant smiles when she sees me. I ask her to tell Dr. Pritima that I could come some other day.
She tells me Pritima had been waiting for me since morning.
Then she goes in to announce my arrival.
She returns with an even wider smile “No, she’ll meet you today and right away in a few minutes.”
I’m fully aware today is our big day. We’ll have a romantic dinner during which I’ll express my love.
I’m not even feeling anxious..
I’m feeling confident.
It’s interesting how young people do not worry. I mean I had no idea where we could go for a dinner but I still was cool.
I tell God age is not a problem and I’m not interested in having children. The population explosion had its worst effects on the Saudi economy. I try to tell God about true love and population explosion problem and He likes that.
After a while, a patient comes out and the attendant calls me in.
Some patients were curious to see a male visitor in that department who didn’t fit. All Dr. Pritima’s male visitors used to be either pharmaceutical agents with bulky bags or doctors but this guy..
This guy looked and smelled like a date!
Dating is considered a taboo in Saudi Arabia and all patients were female and envied Dr. Pritima.
I went in.
She was wearing a very beautiful dress.
She apologized for unexpected number of patients.
I told her I didn’t mind.
We talked for a while. The attendant brought us tea.
She took a sip. She was looking for proper words.
After a few more sips while perusing her book of appointments, she asked me if I could visit her on Thursday 2pm (in 1995, Thursdays used to be half days and the first day of weekends in Saudi Arabia.)
She thought a lunch would be a more appropriate time, especially in a country like Saudi Arabia.
“Sure, it’s a date.”, I agreed. We could spend some more time together because of the weekend, I thought.
