“It’s not a date,” I growled. “It’s two people eating food at the same
table. And no. She will be having dinner with me.”
“Why don’t you just ask her to marry you already?” Kyle asked, his
“That wasn’t the deal,” I told my brother for the twentieth time in a
It was a little ridiculous, that was true. But Abigail and I had been
friends for ten years, since we met in homeroom our freshman year of high

I knew I couldn’t be too overt. I couldn’t bad mouth men to her face.
Couldn’t keep her locked away somewhere. And I also didn’t want to appear
overeager to carry out the plan.
Deception wasn’t exactly my strong suit, but for Abigail I could do
And so the games were on for me. In school, it was easier. I walked to
her classes, carried her books, waited for her after school. As long as I was
