Having a large group of friends in a small town - as I do - means that often someone is falling in or out of love, at times within the group. The dynamics change constantly.
But in one particular occasion, that heart-warming feeling gave way to heart-ache when, someone I cared for more than I realised, fell in love with someone other than me. The perceived rejection stirred up hidden emotions and made me question how solid a friendship can be when tainted with romantic undertones.
The price one has to pay to have friends of the opposite sex!
