Living in Pain

Festival of Words

Festival of Words

Shikha was staring at the couple on the dance floor. They were her best friends from childhood. She had always admired their relationship. While in college, their friendship was just that, nothing more. The three of them were inseparable. They grew up together and the bond they shared remained intact through adulthood. On her lap now was their beautiful daughter.

Shikha had chosen to become a doctor and the other two graduated together from an engineering college in the same city. She kept her feelings hidden for so long. But she was craving to be in his arms now too.

  1. That’s pretty tough – watching someone you love in another’s arms and remembering the times when there was hope. That would be a hard memory to forget with their baby in her arms.


  2. I’s wise on her part to keep her feelings to herself as it was one-sided but feelings tend to erupt . Strange are the ways of heart. very nice story Jyothi.
