We All Betray

It has already been more than 3 years, that Sunny heard anything from Preet. Preet got married back in July 2018 and never really was in touch with sunny after the last day of college. Sunny couldn’t digest the fact of being betrayed, ignored and he tried every possible way to find his answers.
