Crush-ed

Whenever she came online, it was routine. She would first check her inbox, secretly hoping that either of them would've sent her an email. It did not matter whether it was just a "Hi!" or a forwarded "You're Cursed!" one.
When her inbox read zero as it always would, she would open her friend's blog just to listen to the cool song he had placed there.
And then, she got to work. She would click on friendster.com and look at them. She felt funny crushing on 2 guys at the same time. The guitarist, she had known recently. She had strolled into a cafe after a shopping spree and there before her eyes, was he. The poet she had met in school, though she never really talked to him before. On a whim, she had added both of them to her friendster account and they accepted her.
Everyday, she would read their profiles, stare at their pictures, always waiting for new pictures to drool over. She would read every testimonial over and over to try and understand both of them better.
However, today was different. She saw both the poet's and guitarist's status had been changed to "In a Relationship". That wasn't too bad to digest. In a wicked twist of fate and much to her horror, there was a picture of both the poet and guitarist, arms around each other, with a caption that read, "My darling," on both their accounts. Now this was harder to swallow.
Without much thought, she deleted both boys from her account, logged out, stopped the music and shut down the computer.
She threw herself onto her bed, in between the two smiling boys.
