About to empty her desk the next day, Amita found a hand-written note scotch-taped to the drawer:
To borrow some of my brother’s diction, I should put all my cards on the table.
If you stay, and we give this relationship of ours another go, my feelings for you will never lessen, nor will they abate.
However, unless I use my powers for evil (such as winning the lottery), we will never be more than financially comfortable. I doubt I will every be able to give you the luxury you deserve, aside from as the occasional splurge.
You deserve better than that.
You deserve better than me…I just can’t bear to see you go. It is, however, your decision, not mine, and I have no right to stand in your way.
If you go, I wish you all the best. Good fortune to you, Amita, and may you find happiness. I’ll visit if you like – and I’ll stay away if you prefer.
Harvard better appreciate what you’re offering them.
Thanks for reading this.
