Today’s one-word prompt: Borrowed
I guess most times in some stage of our lives we’ve borrowed from someone. I’ve borrowed a few times from a relative. Once it was money, and another time a sari.
Money I borrowed because I received a scholarship to study far away from my home. I was required to carry 500 rupees. So I borrowed the money, promising to pay as soon as I have the money. Years passed I hadn’t fulfilled my promise, suddenly I remembered I wasn’t given the money, rather I was supposed to pay her back. I had some US dollars which I gave her to pay back my loan, she had a smile on her face, she realized I had paid back much more than I owed.
The sari I borrowed was for a day only which I returned at the end of the day.
