After a year of being best friends, Raghav and Amish knew everything about each other. They knew what the other thought. They had access to each other's dirty minds and also sentimental sides. For the past few weeks, Raghav was having girl trouble. He was getting closer to Sanskruti and loved hanging out with her. He wanted to give it a chance but also feared a negative outcome. Amish was a mutual friend to them and helped them to sort things out. He gave his time to both of them. He did his best to get them together. Not only did he solve their fights but also advised them about relationships. People would call him a third wheel. But, he knew how important he was for Raghav and Sanskruti. After a lot of consoling, both of them finally started going out. They were smitten and so in love. They became one of those cute couples who couldn't see beyond each other. Soon, they forgot everyone around them; their friends, family and even Amish. The one person who rooted for them was forgotten. Now all the rumors about being the third wheel felt evident to him. He felt like he was being used. More than anything, he was disappointed in his friends. Raghav who once said, "No matter what happens between us, you'll always be my first priority. Because friends are forever." This kept ringing in his ears like a sound of betrayal. At that moment, he realized how he shouldn't be a pushover. That moment was one that made him understand how people can let you down. He understood how people's disappointment tasted. At that moment, he was all alone with lost trust and belief over friendship and general niceness of people.
