John was turning into a handsome young man with lot of ambition but his first priority was Rose, he always wanted her to be happy. He would get candies and chocolates, dolls and books for Rose. Rose was a sweet little girl who enjoyed John’s company more than anyone else’s. She would spend hours chatting with old John. She would tell all her school stories, everything about her classmates, friends, neighbors and John would listen to all of that for hours. If Rose was silent, John would get worried and ask her if everything was alright and Rose would then tell her problems which John would solve in a jiffy with a smile. Rose would then be back into her normal self, full of enthusiasm and vigor. Whether it was preparing for tests, scoring the top in exams or getting ready for cultural activities, John always gave in full support to his Rose. Rose was the topper in her school and she also grew into a nice well-behaved girl with gentle manners. John taught her to be soft and not rash like other girls of her age. Rose would listen to John without fail and relentlessly pursue each and everything that John would ask her to. John was extremely impressed with such a good girl and wanted her to soon marry him. When Rose entered into her teens, John was already a smart man making his own livelihood. John had a decent job that gave him good earning. Rose was preparing for her board exams in tenth class and John decided to give it some more time instead of disturbing Rose by talking about their marriage. Rose could not think much about the topic either because she was busy with the apprehensions about her rank in the class. Rose made it the second rank and was unhappy and John did not broach the topic of marriage. Years passed and Rose was a pretty, beautiful, fair and slim girl with honey-brown eyes. She was the darling of John but he did not want to force her into marriage when she was eager about studying further. Rose topped her college and John then thought of proposing to her but he did not go ahead because by then he already lost his face because he had gotten himself into multiple clashes with other girls. He was angry with Rose and proposed four girls by then but then broke up with them ruining his life. Rose did not say anything to John except that she secretly prayed that he should not get into such troubles.
