I really think love triangles suck

A triangle has three points right? Well so do relationships. Except in the end, there will only be two points, and the other point is alone and sad because it held onto hope for way too long. Jaclyn Summers was a popular girl. She had everything she wanted in downtown London except one thing, the love of her life. She had found him once before, but he had to go fight for his country. Despite her loves disappearance, she felt it within her that she would find a new love soon. She did. Her escort was the guy. He traveled with her everywhere, and she never realized it until one tragic night. They were traveling from the north side of London to the lower south when a car crashed right into the middle of her limousine. Her escort climbed over all the debris to get to her and stayed by her side until they got to the hospital, not because it was his job but because he genuinely cared for her. She noticed him more after that. She would go out of her way to see him or catch his eye. She had hidden feelings that she did not dare play games with.

 

A month after the accident, the escort showed up at her bedroom door asking if she was available for dinner. Of course she said yes. This is the part where I tell you it was happily ever after from there, but it wasn’t. Two years later, her long lost love returned to her doorstep with roses and a wedding ring. She hadn’t written to him in years… She did not understand what was going on. To her it was crazy for someone to hold onto love for so long. She couldn’t so how could he… She nicely declined the ring and roses and introduced him to her new love. Later he came back… Then, he explained everything. He told her how in love he was and how he couldn’t let go because he knew one day they would be together. He explained the letters that she stopped receiving because he was constantly moving to different bases throughout the war. As he talked she started to second guess herself. She could not fathom the physical hurt her heart was feeling between an escort and solider. Somewhere in the conversation they drifted closer to each other. It was like he was gravity, pulling her in with every word. Then she found herself staring at his lips… She suddenly couldn’t remember the last time she touched them. She couldn’t remember the last time his arms held her.

 

She couldn’t remember the last time he talked to her like this because she knew it had been too long to hold onto something that wasn’t coming back. For weeks, the escort would come during the day and the solider at night. She hadn’t told the escort because she didn’t know which one she loved more. Her heart was constantly torn between the love of her life and the new love of her life. She knew that if she went with the escort she would crush the hope of the solider. But, is she went with the solider, she would crush the escort emotionally and spiritually. She couldn’t do it, but she did. And, when she did, she ripped his heart out and she knew it. He didn’t have to say anything. She could see it on the escort’s face. She could feel it within her chest. As he was walking away she almost changed her mind. She almost yelled for him to stop. She almost told him that she doesn’t want the solider. She didn’t though… She let him walk away… Love triangles are the most depressing thing. Letting someone love you when you don’t love them back can kill a person from the inside out. The two points get the happily ever after, while the third point is left in the dark to deal with the loss of a loved one…
