Without thinking, I carried her bag and we went together toward the direction of the bus. Inside the bus, her seat was beside mine. Naturally, I was behind her at the line of the box office. I tried to sit near the window to enjoy the scenes, but the lady forbid me and she went and sat near the window herself. I did not say anything.
I started to look in front of me and did not pay attention to her. Then, she started to stare at me for a long time. I did not look at her but I was annoyed and could feel her eyes mesmerized on me. At last, I turned to look at her. She smiled saying, " I have been examining how far were your patience and your tolerance.
"Patience on what?"
"on my lack of taste, I knew exactly what you have been thinking?"
I said to her, "I don't think you know what I have been thinking, and it's not important to know."
She said, "Ok, I will tell you something later, but right now, my mind is busy with how to repay your debt."
I said to her, "it doesn't matter, don't worry about it."
She said, "I have something to sell now, and repay your dollar, would you buy it or shall I show it to someone else?"
"do you want me to buy it before I see it, what is it?" I said sarcastically.
She said, "it is wisdom, give me one dollar, and I give you the wisdom." Then I said, "would you give me back my dollar if I did not like the wisdom?"
"no, when you hear the speech, I cannot restore it, besides, I need the dollar to pay my debt to you."
