Part 22: Cassie Decides

Joe or Max…..Max or Joe, this is the decision that has troubled Cassie all week. In reality she has made her choice five days ago, but Cassie likes to think of her self as fair, so for the past week she has made pro and con lists to compare the two guys. The problem is that it seems that both Joe and Max have the same amount of cons and pros. She shares this dilemma with Emily during her lunch break.

“I think this is a sign from your sub-conscience that you can’t use lists to make decisions,” Emily says. “Either you feel that a person is right for you, or you don’t. I know it sounds cliché, but it’s the truth.”

“I have a friend who is cheating on her long-term boyfriend. It’s not that she no longer loves him, it’s just that the excitement has been drained from the relationship. I don’t want to be stuck in a marriage that has lost its luster.”

“Well nobody can predict the future; you just have to have faith that everything will work out for the best.”

“Do you ever worry that Scott might leave you or cheat on you?”

“I try not to worry about things I can’t control.”

“Does that work? Because if it does, please tell me your secret.”

“It does not work very well,” Emily replies with a laugh. “The truth is Scott and I used to have many problems before I got pregnant. There was a moment in our marriage when I thought things would not work out. So even though we are getting along now, I do worry about the future. However, there are moments when I am with Scott that all that worry disappears. And I am just happy. This is quite an accomplishment because my hormones are out of whack now. So even if things don’t work out, the memories I’ll have of these worry free moments makes whatever happens in the future worth it.”

“Thank you for that speech,” Cassie says, with a small smile on her lips. “It helped me make my decision. I know which guy I’m going to choose.”
