Live-in friendship – Part 2

 

She felt uncomfortable. “Did I ask him at a wrong time?” Her thoughts were trying to land but she let them fly.

Reetha and Maya as usual were the last ones to hear her grumbling, but first few to really respond to her emotions. They knew it wasn’t going to work out. But they didn’t know, the questionable relationship was not just friendship. They felt it will be alright soon.

He was waiting to see her. Hiding his emotions and intentions. He didn’t knew what he wanted. He wanted to give it a try. Her brilliance, interest and taste attracted him. He wanted to know more about her. He didn’t want to take it forward. He didn’t want to approach her. He was scared if he had made the right decision. He just let it happen.

Alice, her bestie had come to meet them. They decide to chill with a drink but ended up getting drunk. Alice was drunk and he helped her settle in the bed. Holding her by her waist he slowly walked with Alice. She was watching him helping Alice. She was drunk, but her conscience was behind him.

After helping Alice settle in her bed, he came and sat near her. Putting his arm around her, he offered her a smoke. They both smoked together. Their usual relaxation after a drink. She removed his arm from her shoulder and ran towards the patio. He quickly grabbed her hand. She pushed him off.

He walked behind her. Hugged her tightly. “What’s wrong with you?”, he asked. “Do you like to date Alice?”, she asked.
Without thinking he said, “Why not? I think we both have common likings.”
She didn’t expect the answer. She felt insecure. Jealousy was burning inside. “You cheated me. You said no to me and you wanna date my friend. I can’t accept it.”

He was taken aback. He never thought she was still holding to her love. “Just chill. I just casually said it. We are all friends.”, he said.

“I feel you are going away from me. I can’t take it. I don’t want her coming in between us. I know this is bull shit, but I can’t stop thinking about it.”

Wow 2nd year anniversary

  5C043107-63BB-4541-9F5D-B5CC2E023318   

Wow 2 years of blogging!! I started writing when I was in school. Those were the times where I used to scribble a lot without any destined goal, although deep inside there was a dream to be a writer. I don’t know how much I’ve prepared for next set of goals. But blogging keeps the writer in me active and pushes me to write.

        When I go through my writings it teaches me a lot. It’s like going through a confession and you realize what has happened and you take the next steps accordingly.

           Time for self-evaluation and self appraisal. Writer, blogger, Poet, singer etc. The list might be big as my interest and dreams are big. Long way to go. Lot more to learn. And lot more to give. Happy blogging anniversary to me!!!
