Platform 2 and 3

The station had four platforms; One and Four were on the either side of platform Two and Three who shared the same base.

The Wind passing by the platform heard one of the empty Benches there whisper to the other, “Platform One and Four are always far from the other. But look at Two and Three. They are always there for each other.”

Platform Three was silent but Two replied, “It’s not how it looks. Even though we were built on the same foundation, we have been catering to different trains ever since.”

The Wind sighed and moved on.

it is one thing to be physically separated,its another thing to be near,apparently close,very much together...but...serving different purposes,leading towards different directions and drifting apart every single moment..lovely...refreshing...awesome...and kinda sad......very much "u"
