He knocked on her door rather depressed.

She opened the door and taking just one look at him, she let him in, no questions asked.

That’s what best friends do!

They walked into the living room together and she brought a tray full of his favorite biscuits and two cups of tea from the kitchen.

For a long time, they sat together simply sipping their steaming teas and listening to the pitter patter of the rain outside.

Neither said anything!

Finally, she broke the ice.

She – Want to talk about it?

He simply smirked at her.

She – Oh, I forgot! Guys are not supposed to discuss their tears or feelings.

He looked at her with an expression hard to read and spoke after a long time.

He – So, you want to know what’s wrong? I’ll tell you what’s wrong. The girl I’ve loved since the last 2 years told me last night that she’s dating someone else. And what’s more, the guy she’s dating is my friend who knew how I felt about her. In all of this, what can you do, huh? Can you do anything?

She was lost for an answer.

She – I can help…

He – Really? You can help? Then break up with the guy you started dating last night!
