When Nostalgia Meets Fatal Attraction
Ok, so I have this friend of mine, Jason who called me about two weeks ago with some news about this girl we knew back in school. She was a sweet, quiet girl who was pretty well known to all. We were all from the city, but went to a school where everyone knew everything about everyone. It was as if we lived in a small town.
Well, when Jason called me, he sounded a little freaked out. He told me that this girl found him out of the blue on facebook after not speaking or seeing each other for the last 15 years. I wasn’t all that concerned as I have found some friends whom I haven’t had any contact with in over 20 years and I, nor they found that to be reason to freak out.
He went on to tell me that she also contacted his sister, Amy after finding him, wanting to know what he’s like now, if he was seeing anyone, etc and confided in her all these feelings she was having and has had for him over the years. I asked him if anything had ever happened between them back in high school, and he said no. All they really did was hang out, mainly with their group of friends and the odd time just the two of them, but that was it, nothing more.
Being the curious monkey that I am, I called Amy and asked her to tell me everything this girl was inquiring about. There was one particular thing that threw me for a loop and I now understand why Jason was so freaked out.
To start things off, this girl told Amy that she was engaged to this guy she’s been with for over two years, they have a child together and she is unsure about marrying him. She became even more unsure once she saw Jason on facebook, as all of these feelings she’s had for him over the years came flooding back all at once and she was convinced it was a sign. Amy asked her if she ever dated Jason and she answered back No, but wished she did. She went on to say that she regretted losing her virginity just after high school as she was really waiting for Jason, but they lost contact after everyone finished high school and went onto bigger and better things.
Amy almost fell off her chair when she heard those words come out of this girls mouth. She told me she didn’t even know how to respond to that. Amy asked her if she said any of this to Jason and how he reacted. She said Jason knows nothing and to please keep it quiet until she’s sure.
Is this girl THAT stupid? So stupid to confide in her crush’s sister and after 15 years of no contact and expect her to NOT say anything to her own brother? Especially when she comes across as a stalker? PLEASE!
Jason was crapping his pants at the thought of what his girlfriend, Brooke was going to think about all this. He wasn’t sure if he should even tell her as he thought maybe this girl would just go away. I had convinced him to tell her as this girl already contacted his sister for info, it’s in his best interest to fill Brooke in. Besides, Brooke is one of my good friends. There was no way I was going to keep her in the dark when her boyfriend has a potential stalker on his hands.
Needless to say, Brooke was pissed off over the nerve of this girl, being engaged, yet telling all that she did to Amy thinking in her own mind that it was all okay. Nothing ever happened between her and Jason, what makes her think that anything ever will now? Especially when she’s taken and so is Jason.
I tell ya, never trust the quiet ones. They always seem to be the ones to come out of the woodworks with evil in their pockets ready to cause havoc as NO ONE ever suspects them.
A few days pass before she decides to pick up the phone and call Jason. This girl went out of her way to contact his parents for his number and his Mom being the nice lady she is, said HERE YA GO!
Ring ring goes the phone and who else but Brooke answers. Let’s just say that conversation didn’t go well, as this girl was NOT expecting anyone but Jason to answer. This girl asks if Jason is home and Brooke said he was in the shower, then politely asked who was calling. The girl responds with a huge WHO ARE YOU? Brooke tells her that she is his girlfriend, and this crazy woman said that Jason has never mentioned her in their conversations, so it must not be serious. Brooke tells her that it is quite serious as they have been together for over 3 years and love each other very much. I think this sent the girl over the edge because she told Brooke that he would never love anyone like he loved her and that she better back off, then hung up.
This girl placed a few more calls to Amy, trying to get more info on Jason and this ‘Brooke girl’, as she affectionately called her. Naturally, Amy tells her nothing and eventually tells this girl its time she backed off as there is no way Jason will ever dump Brooke to be with her. She then tried crying to Jason, saying that Brooke was nasty to her when she called for him and now Amy is doing the same in hopes that he will fall for it. Thankfully, Jason didn’t cave. He never really told her to go away, but he does ignore her attempts to contact him.
Since then, this girl has been eerily quiet, but still lingers in the shadows.
