**********Wayne’s Point of View**********

Wayne sat across the street watching Cassie as she sat slumped in the garden staring at her hands, her weeding forgotten. She bit her lip, lost in her thoughts. Wayne noticed Cassie seemed more subdued since her bout with the drug. She didn’t smile as much and he kind of missed the smile that lit up her face. She just seemed to sit there and stare at the world around her. She also cried a lot, a tissue always in her hands. He didn’t know why he cared that she seemed so sad. What was happening to his hating women?

**********Cassie’s Point of View**********

Cassie didn’t know if it was coincidental or not, but now that she was starting to pull away from the thought of dating Wayne, he seemed to be hinting more and more that they should get together. He even called her and gave quite a performance of his apologies that he had been so distant. He told her that he was still sick, but couldn’t wait until he felt well enough to take her out. The doctor’s didn’t seem to know what was the matter with him and he was really getting tired of laying around. He had so many plans he told her.

Beach Party Part 24 (Part 1Part 2Part 3Part 4Part 5Part 6Part 7Part 8Part 9Part 10Part 11Part 12Part 13Part 14Part 15Part 16Part 17Part 18Part 19Part 20Part 21Part 22, Part 23)

**********Cassie’s POV**********

Cassie pondered her close call with the drugs. The police had not been able to establish who had injected the “Cloud Nine,” as it was known on the streets, into the candy. It had been a close call. She still shuddered at how close she had come to have eaten enough of the candy to kill herself and then there was the fact that her little brothers and sister could have eaten the candy as well and it would most likely have been strong enough to kill them. They were only babies.

Cassie peered over her shoulder constantly. She had picked one of her favorite paths. The trees were huge and the foliage clung to the small path she followed. It was dark in the woods even though the sun was shining brightly. She chose this path so she could think and try and make some sense of her life and to think about some of her recent choices. She had on her yoga pants and sneakers and decided to run on the path for a bit as she thought about this most recent development. She put on a burst of speed and raced over the slightly uneven terrain.

She was too young to be suffering from burnout, but her recent life had become so complicated. She slowed down to catch her breath. She thought about Wayne and the frustration she had over being so gullible. The fact was though, that she was still attracted to him despite the obvious deceit. She knew he had to be lying to her. He was stringing her along. Promising a date, but not willing to actually go out on a date.

**********Wayne’s POV**********

Wayne had resorted to some heavy lies with Cassie. The robust blonde girl filled his mind from dawn to dusk. He had never felt like this with a girl. He hated women so why was his mind even remotely thinking marriage to Cassie?

He sat on his mattress stuffed with goose feathers. His heart was heavy although he knew he was stupid to be even thinking about dating this girl.

**********Wayne’s Point of View**********

Wayne and his friends fist bumped each other and then pumped each other on the shoulder. All three of the boys were laughing hysterically at Cassie as she stumbled out of her house and to the house next door. It was obvious she had eaten the candy and they were thrilled with out how it worked out. They continued stuffing pizza into their mouths as they watched as the ambulance and police arrived. They thought it funny when the kid came out with the box of candy. Obviously she had been able to tell them she thought the candy was drugged. He wondered if she would realize that he was the one who sent the candy. She might think it, but how would she prove it? She didn’t even know who he was. He rubbed the bottle absently and wondered if he would have to resort to using it. He was planning as he went.
