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 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.
