And I like it that way.
Frankly speaking, I did not understand her. I didn’t like her any more..not that it would matter since she was virtually a stranger and our roads are never going to cross again. But I still didn’t like her. Some how she left a bad taste in my mouth.
She said, “It started as just a dare when I was in college. One thing led to other and today I am one of the most sought after escort . I don’t have to do this. But money is good and I do take care of…. you know what! I really don’t know why I am telling you all this. But some how I just thought that you might understand that this is just a profession like any other. Its like a male gynaecologist looking at his female patient. As it is part of his work, I do my work. I do feel sometimes that what will I do once I am not so attractive. But that I can worry about later.”
I was dumb founded. She looked so young, so…! Probably I heard or understood wrongly. What could have led this sweet girl to this trade. Then she slowly said something which I could not believe.
But then suddenly she said, “I am an escort!”
Conversation then turned to our professions. I mentioned my being in marketing and in turn asked about hers. A shadow came over her face but it was lifted immediately. She didn’t say anything for a while. I felt somehow I have trespassed.
