Take a peek in your WordPress.com post drafts. Can you use unpublished copy in a new way?
This is what caught my eye when I saw today’s wordpress mail. So I looked up in my drafts and I found the story I’ve written I wanted to publish about a month ago.
After a few minor corrections, here it is. It may sound unfinished, tell me if it really is.:D
One of the toughest things anyone can do. It’s something that can kill you from the inside.
We all had friends that were close to us once, the one we could count on, the one who’s gonna be there forever. What do you do when you know you’ve been and are being manipulated by that one friend you trusted?
Ben and ken were best friends since kindergarten. They were inseparable but their idea of life differed. As they grew up, their worlds changed but their friendship survived.
They made new friends. Ken did well in his academics while Ben dropped out of college. Ken always argued with Ben that he’s making wrong choices. This continued for two more years. Ken had friends who were rich and often went out with them. Ben was always waiting for Ken. Years passed. Ken finished his college and landed the perfect job, he earns well now while Ben is still doing his master’s degree.
Ben comes to know that Ken has been dating his sister since a year and he never told him. When asked why, Ken told Ben:
I never told you because you don’t know how to handle a situation and you give drastic reactions to even the simplest of situations. I’ve known you long enough to understand what to tell you and what not to.
Ben was broken on the inside.
He was happy when Ken said he’d come to India for Ben but now he knows he’s here for his sister. Everytime he met him, it was for her.
He wasn’t expecting that answer from his best friend. All he ever wanted was Ken to tell him that he was dating his sister.
Just a confession was all he wanted.
A year passed. Ken is happy with his job and the money he’s making. All Ben could think of was the good times they had together. They texted each other once in a while but never like they did before.
Ben doesn’t know what to do.
Should he let him go?
Or get back to him and apologize?
Does someone really let go after moving on? Does moving on help in letting go?
