But after many requests, Jason finally got out of his bed. Somehow he was also realizing how much important Aurora is for her. Her thought was enough to bring a smile on Ash’s face, so Jason was glad too.
“Hurry up! We should not get late,” said Ash, tucking up his blue shirt on his brown trousers hastily.
“I am already ready. You’re the one staring at the mirror for an hour. You get ready, and I’ll be back in just a minute.” said Jason, rolling up his sleeves.
“But where are you going now?” asked Ash.
“Don’t worry, I’ll be back soon,” said Jason, opening the door. He got out of the house and walked uphill as fast as he could.
Ash was now sitting in front of the mirror, and suddenly, he thought of what he was going to say to her.
“Hello, Aurora. What a pleasant day, isn’t it?” He said to himself in the mirror, and shook his head “No, I don’t want it to be formal.”
“Hey friend, how are you doing?” He tried once again, and once again, “No, too informal!”
Soon, Jason came back, with something in his hands. “Ash, come out buddy. Aren’t you ready yet?” Jason called.
Ash came out of the room excitedly, “Yes, I am! Where have you been?”
“I just went to buy this,” said Jason and showed up the flower bouquet he was holding in his hands. “Does she likes flowers?” Jason asked, giving the bouquet to Ash.
Ash remembered Aurora’s garden, “She likes them a lot! But why did you bought… I mean, why flowers?” asked Ash looking at the purple lilies.
“There can be three reasons for that. First, you shouldn’t go to someone’s house empty-handed. It gives a bad impression. Second, it was the cheapest thing we could afford after losing our job. And third,…” Jason took a pause.
“Third reason is, a few days ago, while we were wearing that bear costume, I saw a man giving flowers to her lady and she liked it, so I just thought… I just thought that she will like it too if you give it to her.”
Ash did not know what to say. He wanted to thank Jason but just couldn’t.
“Don’t you dare think that I like these things, flowers, and girls and all. They all bring trouble, and you will realize that very soon, I’m telling you,” said Jason hesitatingly, explaining himself. “I am going to meet her, just for you. I just want to see if she is worth my friend. That’s all, nothing else.”
