The Set-Up

April 24, 2018

Jack met Beth and Kay on the same day.  They were at a sports bar, and Jack was immediately attracted to Beth.  He liked her big brown eyes, and sassy manner.  Beth and Kay were best friends, and though Kay was instantly attracted to Jack, she didn’t feel rejected at not being chosen.

For two months, Beth and Jack saw each other regularly, and often double dated with Kay and the guy she was dating.  Then Jack disappeared suddenly without a word, and Beth was puzzled and confused because they hadn’t argued.  He simply stopped calling, and she didn’t know what to think.  Then, two weeks after he disappeared, he phoned Kay, and expressed a desire to be with her instead of Beth.  He claimed that since he had gotten to know her, he’d decided she was more of his kind of woman.  Kay was shocked, but not interested.  She decided to teach Jack a lesson.  She pretended to be flattered and asked him to meet her on a busy street corner in an hour.  When she hung up the phone, she called Beth and asked her to meet her on the same corner in an hour.  Kay didn’t move, as she waited for the phone to ring

Two hours later, Beth called and thanked Kay for setting up the meet, so she could confront Jack face to face.  She didn’t even inquire as to how it happened.  She was just pleased that she got the opportunity to let Jack know that she considered him a jerk for the way he behaved.  Jack never called Kay again.
