Complicated

Amrita was just another girl who had just turned twenty. She was very lucky woman for her age because she was in a no time-pass no nonsense long term relationship. There was no question as to the fact that she was very much in love with the man who loved her equally. Also their relationship was much mature owing to the fact that it was not a week or month old but had been there for a long time now.

Even in those moments when she was angry or upset at him, there was never even a thought that she might not love him or vice versa. Obviously not everything was picture perfect, but she understood that so was the case in every relationship of every kind.  The differences of opinion she had with him did not dampen their love.

Still, there was one ‘little complication’ in her heart. Though she loved dearly her boyfriend and was completely loyal to him, her heart was divided in two as she also loved dearly another man. When she had first met him, it had seemed to Amrita that this other man was no more than a fleeting crush. A feeling that would go away soon. It didn’t.

With the passage of time, her love for both men grew. While many thought it was impossible to love two people in the same manner at the same time, she disagreed. If it was perfectly normal to be in love with two men at different times, why was it any different if both were present at one time. Love is an emotion and it is not something that happens systematically as to only fall in love once you no longer love another person. In actuality, there can never be falling out of love, so she loved them both.

 

 

Now, while loving the other man, she knew very clearly that relationships were the last thing he was looking for. His calling in life was different and falling in love was something he actively avoided. Also she was sure that he was the kind of person to leave decisions such as that of a life partner on his parents or other people he trusted in that regard.

However, Amrita was fearful. She feared that if someday, her ‘second love’ did indeed fall in love, how would she react? How would she react if he fell in love with another woman? But more importantly, how would she react if he fell in love with her? He knew very well she was in a relationship, but what if in some manner she were to come to know of his love for her. What would she do then?

The choice between the two men she loved would maybe drive her crazy. And though she loved the second man with all her heart, just like she loved the first one, she knew not what to hope for in the future. Should she hope for the man to love another and move away or should she hope for him to fall in love with her and stay?

Amrita had no answers to her mindset and knew that it was, to put it simply, “complicated”.

  1. Yepp complicated but I hope she realises that she is doing wrong too, towards the second man.. for that person might have all planned about the future with her and then to turn back and say oh I want the number one ..

    not right ..

    interesting story as it hit hard and very close to a story i know of .. the only difference in in that case the girl had a number 3 and a 4 tooo 🙂

  2. Interesting narration… she is surely confused!

    This situation is a real bad one to be in…as I have seen someone very close go through this and end up as an emotional wreck not knowing what to do..

  3. This is interesting. Good job 🙂
    “If it was perfectly normal to be in love with two men at different times, why was it any different if both were present at one time.” This line of thought had never struck me, but now it appears to me that it is not at all something out of place, rather very normal, and occuring more frequently than we would care to believe 😉

    • Firstly, thanks for coming by!
      Also, am glad you found the story interesting and caught on to the main message that I wanted to convey through it. 🙂
      It’s not that we care less to believe it, but we actually deny it not to others but to ourselves….
