Like old times

As soon as he pushed open the crumbling wooden door and stepped into the courtyard, his eyes fell on the cycle. Throwing his backpack on the ground, he rushed to the cycle. He remembered when his father had bought him this cycle, how excited he was. It was the best day of his life. Jumping on his cycle, he had gone to the village square to meet his friends, Suri and Lallan. The cycle became their flying carpet, the three would be seen driving around the whole village on a triple ride.

Then one day, the inevitable happened. All three of them fell for the village belle. The best friends fought bitterly about who would have her. He lost. The next morning, he left the village to build his destiny.

Something clicked in his mind. Taking off his t-shirt, he dusted the cycle. The chain was rusty and the handle bar was a little askew, otherwise it looked as good as new. He walked to the lone cycle repair shop who mended the cycle within no time.

Riding on the cycle, he took a nostalgic trip down to the village square. The village looked frozen in time. He met Suri and Lallan there. The three looked at one other for a long time, unsure of what to say or do. Overcoming their awkwardness, they at last hugged each other. The three friends sat on the cycle and in a triple ride drove around the village.
