Monty “I only wished you could take over the apparel business”
Susan “Monty – never was interested in business”
Monty “I want to marry you damn it – for business then I need to find some other trust worthy person and to top it all you are possessive”
Susan “Why you wish only a woman to lead it – men too can”
Monty “This is what will happen – a lady apparel stores run by men – It is fine if my brand is big, we are small time startup”
Susan “Ok let me introduce to my best friend Sarah”
Sarah is a shrewd, good looking girl who has completed her management.. she only knows that she wishes to be successful
Monty is enamored by Sarah. He feels she can be a better partner even in personal life, slowly he begins avoiding Susan
Susan “Monty I find you drifting away from me.. “
Monty “Susan I still don’t like your possessiveness”
Susan “But for nearly 6 years you loved it”
Monty “As teen, early youth it was fine.. but now I feel there needs to be space”
Susan looks in Monty’s eyes and feels love has diminished..
Susan “Ok let us break.. go ahead and marry Sarah”
Monty “How are you so sure I started liking Sarah”
Susan “Know you ins and out. you are self centered and so is she.. so good match”
Monty proposes Sarah
Sarah accepts his proposal and also informs Monty that she will need 85% stake in the venture.. and she will manage business first and house hold is not her priority”
Monty agrees and soon they get court registered marriage
On marriage night Monty “I want you to begin a family.. a kid.. will complete the family”
Sarah “Are you crazy? Not married you to produce babies.. The startup is our baby, let us give it 5 years, babies latter” and she hugs Monty and kisses him and whispers “Hope we have safe sex always.. I don’t like to pop pills”
Monty’s face falls low and he says “Not prepared today.. so fine let us sleep”
Sarah looks at Monty sweetly and says ‘You are my baby”
Monty in his mind “Girls tell male baby only if they want something from them”
Monty is about to kiss Sarah but stops at it..
Sarah “I didn’t ask you to stop love” and she hugs him passionately..
Monty “But I need to always be in control right..”
Sarah “Common not a big deal for you.. you are experienced with Susan”
Monty gets angry
Monty “Sarah – Susan was understanding, loving and a home maker, I was trying to make her a business woman and here I am with you” and he sighs
Sarah “Do you know our venture is getting funded. I add the glamor quotient,. you got lucky “
Monty “I realize in life never mix personal and professional interests..”
Sarah “Dear Monty, now let us forget the past and make new beginning” and she hugs Monty
3 years latter
Monty meets Susan in a restaurant by accident.. Susan is with a very good looking known investor and happy..
Monty “How are you?”
Susan “Am very happy. I lost you but gained Joseph an investor and we invest in entrepreneurs and he has mentored me in a way where I balance my personal life well.. My hubby” and she blushes
Monty “Susan, Sarah left me when she got 2nd round of funding. an exit from business and life..so here I am all alone. Can you invest in my venture and be a partner”
Susan begins laughing and whispers to her hubby “Half baked love Full baked Entrepreneur but he is a bright spot”
Joseph “Fine Monty – let us begin interactions”
Moral of story – Let us not try to change someone’s individuality for our own selfish interests else we may loose that individual and even our own little heart.
