Our trio had finally been breached. Sohil was getting hitched, and it called for a much-needed reunion. We were inseparable in college, be it a mass-bunk or preparing for any exam; you would have found us hanging together. And like that, the four years of engineering made our trio the Bindassss Trio.

Sohil and I were flabbergasted as the reasons seemed to be half-baked and it was quite unusual from Rohan. Before we could have inquired further, , he left us with the promise of seeing us very soon.
The promise took 5 years and a wedding to get fulfilled. Meanwhile, I too had to leave my home state due my job at an MNC, whereas Sohil joined his family business.

He did meet Sohil whenever he came from London, but his plans were so impromptu that I was never in town at those times. Maybe it was intentional; the thought did disturb my mind. I was angry as his explanations always seemed an excuse. …
