Alia didn't say a word.
That afternoon a truck delivered a load of new furniture...
furniture which Bima paid for with his money. After the furniture was in its place, they toured the house again. As they observed each room, beautifully appointed and magnificently decorated, Bima reminded her: "Alia, if it were not for my money,
this furniture would not be here."
Again, Alia was silent.
Late in the afternoon another truck came with a special piece of furniture which was to be the focal point of the family room.
It was a combination stereo-television-computer center all wrapped into one gorgeous piece of furniture. Bima paid for it with his money. When it was in place, Bima again said: "Alia, if it were not for my money, that beautiful electronics system
would not be here."
Finally, Alia spoke: "Honey, I don't want to make you feel bad, but...
If it were not for your money ...
I wouldn't be here either ! ! ! " .
