“Paul,” Kendall protested as soon as the clerk headed to the back, “I don’t need flowers.”
“But I want to get them for you.”
“Can you afford it?” she asked.
“Sure,” I said confidently.
With that, her face softened and she smiled at me. Blinking back tears, she kissed me. “You’re so wonderful,” she whispered.
“Thank you,” I said, my chest swelling with pride.
When the clerk returned with the two bouquets and told me the price, however, I almost choked. They were beautiful flowers, but Kendall had been right, they were expensive.
Kendall and Susan are worth it, I silently convinced myself.
she thinks he's wonderful for ignoring her and doing something she thinks is wrong? how are the girls "worth it" when he doesn't have to buy the flowers to continue his relationships?
