Daily Prompt : Buff

In response to daily post’s one-word prompt : Buff

My brother’s car!

Back when we  were young living in Comilla, Bangladesh, my older brother got a job as an Assistant Manager, in one of Duncan Brothers Tea estates. He earned enough money to buy himself a new car. In my eyes he worshipped it  nothing more than this new addition in his life.

He’d wake up every morning, and routinely clean, polish , rub and Buff his car. He’d spend at least an hour or two, and then he’d move about to see how gorgeous it looked. After satisfying his eyes, he’d call me looking very proud, ‘Ranu look, what do you think, did I not do a good job?’

My reply was the same, ‘yes you did, can I touch it!’

In his deep voice he’d reply, ‘no you’ll make it dirty.’

Mom would come out from her room and laugh, she’d say, ‘I’ve never seen such a (adekhle it’s a Bengali word means possessive person) possessive person.

Meanwhile we’d all join in and make fun of him. Those days are so memorable and I wish they lasted for ever!
