A Triangle-Not a Love triangle but a friendship triangle. A pure and subtle form of friendship. The distance(both physical and mental) between all three vertices and the center was the same initially.
Then Vertex A had this opportunity far somewhere.And it wanted to go there and explore the opportunity knocking at its door! It decided to pave that path.Hence the triangle was no longer an equilateral triangle.
It turned out to be an isosceles one. Something like,
After months,A decides it would leave its vertex for a while and come back at an earlier position when they-A,B,C become equidistant from O.A travels.Tired,exhausted,excited and a mix of all the emotions.C is super excited.
It’s going to be C’s exams in a few days and A is going to be super busy.A knew how excited C was and B knew how excited A was.C had invited A to her home for dinner.It mattered a lot to A,for even though C’s exams were so close,it had managed and changed its schedule in such a manner that it could meet A.Upon institng,A had promised B that it would come on the day it lands.Unfortunately,A couldn’t go.But just because it knew C would get upset,A decided to give her a surprise visit with a present it had so fondly brought from its new location.C was super ecstatic to see A.Both of them jumped in joy!
After staying there was 7 long days,it was the time to bid goodbye to the place.And in between all this,A was at least expecting a call from B.It knew,that both A and B knew that things were now not the same.That A wasn’t going to visit its old coordinates for the next whole year.Yet,B made no attempts to call or meet.You would argue,why didn’t A make any attempts?Because of the same reason-it had been doing that for a long time now and it wanted to see if the long distance made any changes for betterment to B.But alas,no difference.It was the time of journey.Upon reaching the next co-ordinate point and the last of the previous area,A couldn’t take it anymore,all by itself and called C mentioning the same.C just tried to console A saying it’s B’s nature and various such other justifications. A knew it was just so that it leaves the area joyously.
A by its nature stopped talking to B.This continued for about a week.B made attempts to reconnect to A.A finally,somehow,could console itself and changed the otherwise bitter feelings for B.
Then it was the festival of lights everywhere,at A,B and C’s place.Difference being,both B and C were with their families and A wasn’t.C being A’s best friend,knew A was tender when it came to festivals and made every attempt to keep it happy.Just a phone call did magic and that C knew! A loves C!
A again deliberately did not wish B.It had been doing that, for all the festivals past an year.All special greetings! Plus the previous incident had changed something,it knew that!
What A got from B was what B would wish to all.Everybody!With that typical greeting and your name below,the way you send to your office bosses! But A also knew,it was not sent the same way to all.
That was the day,A’s feelings for B shattered,just like pieces of glass!And then A always knew no relationship can sustain with the inputs of love and care from just one side.Everything appeared to be crushed.
It gave immense pain to know that it had been just a trash bin for the past few months for B’s all frustrations and the vice versa was seldom true. A decided to loosen the noose-AB.It needed a greater area to breathe.
Doing that never gave it even a tinge of happiness to it.But now,not just these,but many more in its heart,it was all bursting out.It was suffocating it from inside.It did not want to waste its time again reminding B of all the times it had badly hurt A,so it ended it the harsh way.No explanations,no justifications.
