Love Triangle


As I walked to you in the hospital and saw your broken leg, my eyes swelled with tears. I never saw you on a sick bed and you looked pale. Much had been spoken lately and we had reasoned through. We both knew that we did not belong to one another.

We held our hands together. We stared without words but we were trembling. I didn't know how you could involve in the motorbike accident. I just knew that I had hurt your heart badly.

We were in a love triangle and I had decided to opt out. I cared very much for you but he was my best friend and I had never said no to his every request... He begged me to let go...

Yeah. We could be together, be good friends or brother and sister. But my deep feelings for you would never go. And the more we were together, it would finally show.

I had come to say goodbye. I knew it was the wrong time. But I didn't want the intangible love triangle any longer.

I wished you well and departed. I remembered you called me brother... but I never turned back. But I wished you well, sister...

Many years later, we met again. I didn't expect to see all your hair turned white. You had married my good friend and you seemed very happy. And I was happy for you. My family loved you two and we had happy meals together.

We held our hands together and we talked about old times...

Nothing happens by chance. God knows and He always help us along. But it's a matter of time before we truly understand.

Hi Yeo,

A sentimental but lovely story. It tugged at my heartstrings. Could you consider writing one for my book? Leave a comment in my blog if you're interested. Thanks.
