Everything was great in our lives until he left for his job in Mumbai and I was in college. I was so used to him that I felt extremely alone when after he left though. We were constantly in touch, through phone calls, every chance he got, he would call me. And he promised me countless visits, but still, I was lonely.
And that’s when my best friend came into the picture. We were very close. Literally, his family had accepted me as their bahu. Of course, there was nothing like that between us. He was in a friends-with-benefits relationship with his ex-girlfriend, and while things were going on and off between them, he had lost all his feelings for her.
He was my drinking buddy, smoking buddy and movie buddy. He was my whole world, but just as a friend. One day, he confessed his feelings to me, told me that it was much more than a friend. I rejected this immediately. He accepted this gracefully and promised to be a friend forever.”
