Small Steel Suitcase

My little brother had this small steel trunk to keep things.We all pretended it to be his ideal suitcase.  Once my father challenged and bruised his tiny ego, my brother  put his clothes , books in them and threatened to leave….My father laughed derisively”Let me see, how far can he go?”. My brother sat at the bottom of the stairs in the building of our apartments. I ran down the stairs,  I begged my brother to change his mind…Though we both knew he had no other option… We were both quite small , I was older than him … .Now , he is grown and asked my parents to leave his house in a foreign country…He did go that far…..Again , I am sure he had no other option..Life does move in circles…
