“Keep an open mind,” I said pulling Mike toward the wide-open field. “And keep your eyes shut.”
I turned to face him to make sure he was following my directions. He had no idea the surprise I had in store for him. I squeezed his hand as we got closer to reassure him everything was going to be all right. Even though I knew that it wasn’t. At least not for him.
“Okay, we are almost there.”
“Where could we possibly be going?” Mike had a small smile on his face. If he only knew where I was really taking him, he wouldn’t be smiling and definitely wouldn’t still have his eyes shut.
He didn’t know I was unhappy and didn’t know I knew about how he really treated me when I wasn’t around. I had known for weeks that he had been spreading rumors and lies about me. Especially to the rest of the basketball team. I am sure the rumors only started because I wouldn’t sleep with him. He didn’t know I never was interested and was only using him to get what I wanted.
I knew from several of his teammates that he had been around the block a few times and more than likely had more than one STD. He just didn’t know I was going to leave him the field alone. Alone with all the girls he had passed diseases onto. It was the only reason I started dating him in the first place.
