Typical of the other days, he received a call from her. He told her to text him instead. Thanks to her mumbles which were out of earshot. As said by him, she sent him a message. And it wasn’t a wonted message; instead it was something that made him fidgety. It read, “I need to tell something of great significance to you.”
As he told her to continue, suspense overshadowed him. Even a second seemed to be like an hour. Time wasn’t killing but he sure was getting murdered. As if he was being stabbed once with each passing second. But the next message that he received slit him straightaway! Little did he know that those three magical words would ever hurt him?
Yes! She said those three words which didn’t prove to be spell – binding to him. He wasn’t in love with her and he would’ve never wanted to hurt his best friend. Fate had put him in a place where there lie a pit on one side and a trench on the other!
This was the first time he had felt this weak and feeble. Unable to think of anything else, he promptly told her to put him out of her mind as he didn’t feel the same for her and that this would blot their friendship. She read the message and replied instantly, “Hey, don’t take it gravely. I was just jesting!”
Two hearts shattered that day. One lied about kidding and the other lied, hiding behind the veil of practicality. Ironically enough, destiny had a different game plan for the both of them!
