Festive-promotions and crowded-shops were driving Jia crazy, but her savings weren’t enough. What was the desire of a 21 year old?
She decided something and determinedly went back home.
Next-day she asked for advance salary of four months; it was her confidence or her luck, she got it.
Triumphantly she purchased her desire which was driving her crazy. On reaching home, she shouted with excitement, ‘mom!’
Her mother’s heart brimmed with pride on seeing that gift. It was a solitaire diamond-pendant that Jia had bought for her mother, to keep her father’s promise which he made before he had left for the war.
