Cassie had a problem. The longer she waited to hit the send text button, the harder it was going to be. It gave her more time to ponder her problem. She no longer trusted her own instincts. Her instincts, since the drugged candy, said to tell Wayne no date. She didn’t know him well enough. Part of her thought he was the one behind the drugged candy although she didn’t know why he would do such a thing. She had spent so much time pondering what to do.

**********Cassie’s POV**********

Unable to get over the feeling that she was being naïve in thinking that Wayne really wanted to date her, Cassie struggled with sending him the text message that she was on the way. Glancing out the window at the park across the street she wished she could escape to her favorite running trail. Running always soothed her, however today she would get drenched by the rain so even if she had the time, she didn’t run in the rain usually. Plus she was all dressed up for her date. There would be no running today.

She stood up before she started to snooze again. She had to make a decision and now. If she went on the date she would have to put on one hell of a performance as she wasn’t really sure she wanted to see him now. How could her feelings have changed so much? She knew why and that was because she half accepted that he was behind the drugged candy and couldn’t shake that feeling.

What to do? What to do? She kept turning it over in her mind. She typed out the text that she was leaving, but didn’t push send right away. What little sun had come out had disappeared behind the woods already. It was time to get a move on. Once she pushed send she would quickly text her friends to be ready. Oh why couldn’t she just push the send button already?

**********Wayne’s POV**********

Wayne was already in the area before the restaurant entrance. He was sipping a beer and thinking ahead to the fun he had in mind. His thoughts were erratic and he was back in the groove again. Cassie would be in proximity soon. He went back over his steps and he checked off comforter stowed in the van with his friends. He looked at the garden beside the restaurant’s entrance and most of the slushy stuff had disappeared.

A party bus pulled up and the driver opened the door manually from the outside and a bunch of teenagers were leaping out row by row. He was glad he and Cassie wouldn’t be here tonight. He wondered if it was coincidental that so many teenagers were here tonight. Did Cassie have a bunch of her friends here for support? He started looking for the four of her friends he was familiar with.

Kimberley shook Cassie’s shoulder. “Wake up sis. You’re going to be late for your date. No more snoozing.”

Cassie shakes her head and tries to wake herself up. She had been almost sound asleep actually. She looked at the time. “I need to send Wayne a text when I leave. He is supposed to wait for me outside the restaurant so we can go in together. I am kind of glad we are driving separately. I still have this little feeling of doubt about this whole thing. Part of me wants to call Wayne and tell him I’m sick. I wish I could shake this feeling. Do you think I am crazy to have so much doubt? I also have to text my friends and make sure they are in place. I have two of them going to be inside eating dinner and two of them outside to make sure I leave and get home okay. I am probably being very paranoid, but there’s that little feeling of doubt that just won’t go away.”

Cassie ran her fingers through her hair as if trying to fix it, but her hair looked perfect already. She chewed on her fingernail while checking her phone for a text message from Wayne saying he was canceling their date. So far the date was still on. She wondered what area outside the restaurant he would be waiting for her. Since he didn’t say parking lot specifically she figured it would be near the front door.

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

“I can just imagine Cassie now gearing up for a big row about me not calling her or returning her calls often enough. She seems the type to harp on a subject. Although she won’t be in any condition to fight about anything right away,” Wayne tells his two life-long friends, Rocky and Butch. He unconsciously fingers the bottle again.

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

“Hey Kimberley come look at this. I don’t remember that strange table being in the park a few weeks ago when I was over there. From its proximity, I would have thought we would have noticed it either from this window or coming in and out of the apartment.”

Kimberley was struggling to remember if she had noticed it before or not. It sure was a strange table. “Do you think someone might be having some kind of party over there? I would expect a picnic table in the woods though.
