I don’t know what to do now. I am sitting here like a fool. I took hours getting prepared. Hair done, nails done, makeup applied by a professional, all that money down the drain. For what? To be sitting here in this place, alone? Abandoned like an old pair of shoes? Why I answered that text I’ll never know. He seemed reasonable. Jane knew him to be a good guy. What was she thinking, recommending him to me?
And here I am, angry at both of them, sitting by the side of the road, waiting for my brother. My brother is always reliable, but what will he think of me, here in this place? Dressed up, and sitting in the bushes! I know he’ll be upset. I’m just glad I had my phone to call him. He’ll come, give me the usual lecture, and take me home safely. I can count on it.
Unlike the creep who left me here. Of course it was my decision to get out of the car. I’m just glad he let me out. He could have forced me to stay with him…..I can’t think of it, what could have happened. Jane must not really know him, otherwise how could she have set me up? Or maybe she did set me up, on purpose. You never know who is a true friend these days. He was an obnoxious, self centered, octopus. Rude, and overbearing, and dangerous. So angered by my refusal of his advances, he let me out. I guess I should consider myself lucky to be sitting here after all.
There’s my brother coming, finally. I can’t wait to get home.
