Etched in the illusion of time
How would you deal with this? Two of my really good friends, Sammie and Lex, are fighting yet again. Firstly, Lex was dating Mike, who she broke up with a month ago. Sammie got dumped by Chris (Lex's first ex, who she dated previously) a bit ago and was miserable, etc. Mike can't let go of Lex, and he is constantly being clingy, and whining to her to take him back..and he whines to her friends (me included) as well, and gets all pissy. Pretty soon, Mike goes off to Europe for a month. Temporary peace.
When he comes back, he STILL isnt seemingly over Lex, and bitches to me about it, and is extremely ill-tempered. The only one left who will listen is Sammie, and Lex and I both believe she was only prolonging his own misery by pitying him. Turns out, Sammie starts to like him last week (when Mike came back from Europe) in the midst of comforting him and being a good friend. Last night she told him this, and he apparently likes her too now. He even got her this necklace thing while he was in Europe, while Lex still has his class ring..go figure.
Now I'm entrusted with this secret and can't tell Lex, but I do anyway. Lex tests Sammie and asks if they were going out, and Sammie lies to her. Now I have two friends who are at odds again..
