I could feel my heart racing as I stood in front of the closed door. I knew what was waiting for me on the other side, yet I couldn't bring myself to turn the doorknob. The memory of his words echoed in my mind, 'I'll never betray you, I promise.'

But as I pushed open the door, I was met with the sight of my best friend, Jake, and my boyfriend, Mark, locked in a passionate embrace. My world shattered in an instant as I realized that the person I loved and trusted most had betrayed me.

Tears streamed down my face as I stumbled backwards, unable to comprehend what I was seeing. Jake and Mark quickly pulled away, their guilty expressions confirming my worst fears.

'How could you?' I managed to choke out, my voice trembling with anger and hurt.

Mark tried to explain, but his words fell on deaf ears. I couldn't believe that he could do this to me, after all we had been through together. And Jake, my supposed best friend, had been a part of it all along.

I turned and ran, blinded by my tears and the pain in my heart. I didn't know where I was going, I just needed to get away from them. Away from the betrayal.

As I collapsed onto a nearby bench, I couldn't help but think back to all the times Mark had promised to never betray me. And now, here we were. I realized then that sometimes the people we trust the most are the ones who can hurt us the most. And in that moment, I knew that I could never forgive them for betraying me.
