“You can trust me hon! I won't cheat
you” said Arnav. He was very sweet and Shruthi can't help but fall for his
every word. Arnav was her Facebook friend. It hadn't been long since they
started chatting and he was already claiming that he loved her. “Just one look
at you and I couldn't stop myself. You are so beautiful! I love you!” he had
said. Shruthi had denied it, she didn't believe a single word he said but he
was good at persuasion! So here was Shruthi falling for him, even when her gut
instincts screamed at her that this couldn't be true! She had always longed for
someone who cared and when Arnav was proving to be that person, how could her
heart not accept him? She was in Qualm!
“What’s the matter Shruthi?” asked
Monica the next day seeing her confused and low. Shruthi couldn't bear the
qualm anymore and she blurted out the whole story to her friend. “I don't know
what to do Monica. He seems sweet and genuine but my instincts tell me that
it's fake!” said she as she cupped her hands and hid her face. “Don't worry
dear, we will soon find out! Till then just hang on. Don’t jump to conclusions”
Shruthi continued to chat with Arnav and everyday it was becoming difficult not
to fall for him. Such a sweet heart he was. She could no longer deny his love!
“I think he is good Monica. He cares for
me a lot! I don't think he is faking it” said Shruthi when she met her friend next day. Monica
was very calm as she spoke “I sent him request the day you mentioned about him
and I have been chatting with him ever since. You won’t believe anything I say,
so I want you to have a look at it yourself” she said as she handed over her
phone. Shruthi sensed that something big was about to happen as she took it and
started to read. There were same messages of love in the chat that he had sent
to her. He had promised Monica that he loved only her and it was true! All
those cheesy things he had sent her were here too. “I didn't want to chat with
him like this but this was the only way for me to find out if he was honest!
And you know the result! It is right in front of you!” said Monica as she saw
her friend’s face contort in pain.
Shruthi cried for a while but she was
sadder that she had been stupid enough to believe in some random stranger.”It’s
not your fault dear. People like Arnav are all over the social sites, trying to
fool innocent people. It has happened with most of us. But isn't it good that
you realized it before it was too late? From now on lets be careful before
trusting some random stranger we met and falling in their traps!” said Monica
as she gently caressed Shruthi's head for she knew her friend would be fine.
