Just to make sure
Jake had gone out with Patsy since High School and he thought she was the real thing and they would be together forever.
Her family welcomed him every night as he came round and she was sporty and fun to be with and he imagined the future with them always together.
He loved going on long walks together both in the nearby forest and at the local swimming hole and he could imagine no other life than being with her.
So it was a complete surprise that one night after watching the telly at her place that she suggested that they should have a break...play the field a little just to make sure.
Reluctantly he agreed despite being heartbroken but thought that he must comply to show that he was not too clingy.
A few months later his mother showed him in the local paper that Patsy had become engaged to a local bloke that lived quite close to him and Jake felt he could have fallen through the floor.
