She : He betrayed my trust.
Me : Did he ask you to trust him?
She : No. But I thought he was a good person.
Me : Did you, at any point of time, find signals to the contrary?
She : Ummmm… Yes. But I thought it was a mood swing, or a temporary phase. One has to take these things in stride, to nurture a bond.
Me : Did he ask you to nurture the bond?
She : Well …. No!
Me : Then, whatever was happening was in your thoughts. And you made an incorrect judgement.
She pondered over this, for a while.
She : Maybe … So, you mean to say there was no betrayal of trust.
Me : No, because the so-called trust was a one-sided affair. What you are cribbing about is a reversal of nothing.
