Love Triangle - here and there


He was indebted to his rich childhood friend without whose help climbing the ladder of life was next to impossible. A debt which he knew he would never be able to repay.
There was this beautiful lady he was in love with. She too reciprocated his love.
One day when his friend expressed his love for this beautiful lady, he thanks God for the opportunity given to repay his debt. Off he goes with his childhood friend’s proposal to her.

When she refuses he insists saying love is nothing without sacrifice. Sacrifice what love itself is it she retorts back. He refused to listen and leaves her asking her to forget him forever.

Not willing to be another man’s wife she takes her own life away.
Friend has been listening to the conversation between these two. Not wanting to be in their way and yet not able to forget her he too kills himself.
Distraught by the death of his childhood friend and lover, he too commits suicide.
At heaven the friends meet and feel happy for each other. While hugging each other they notice her approaching them.

very morbid. Whenevr I see in the mivies people asking to sacrifice their love, I feel very angry..people are not things to be given, they are human with emotions and love is always two sided, one sided is infatuation.This type of bartering in friendship is very unethical for me.

My daughter called me a serial killer for I killed the characters in my stories often.But Lakshmi has gone one step further- a mass killer taking the lives of three people in one short story of hardly 300 words!!!
When that girl was not loving the rich guy to compel her to love him was an imposition.All the characters seem unstable and impulsive ready to give up their lives at the drop of hat.

Lakshmi,
Appreciate for conveying your thoughts in 2-3 paragraphs,the end was funny as they find the lady in heaven again. Will the woe continue there too.Will heaven become hell.
Happy New year.

Sounds like a Hindi movie story.
Now a day,you wont get people to fall for this kind of love.It is moreof a practical love these days.

Uhmm...Suiciding because you cannot sacrifice...that is what I saw in there...I can sacrfice and so can I suicide...but only if they can be justified reasonably...Stupid are all three in here...

All the three could have lived as Living Legends of a Failed Love Affair...hahah!!!and some day, for sure, they would have come to an agreement...For I belive there are still solutions right there ready to open up to them with time...

'hmmmmm'
what more can i say? but love maybe like that....
but how wonderful it would have been had they been able to hug each other as humans and not as citizens of heaven!

Lovely. You've taken me down to my childhood. Jai Shri Krishna.

Any way, today, I burnt all used polythene bags (about half a kilogram) in an earthen pot. I’ve being doing this since long in order to prevent cows consuming it in streets and dying.

The friend who sacrificed his love is stupid and selfish...

If he was confident of his friendship, he would have told the truth to his friend... He was not a good friend nor a good lover...
