For the past few weeks, we have delved into the lives of the OAA members as Jerry holds them hostage. Continued from last week:
Jerry: Why did I even try asking you for your story? I should have known better than that. Alright Sue, let’s hear from you now.
TO BE CONTINUED…
Sue: Me? You want to hear from me?
Jerry: Your name is Sue right?
Sue: You don’t have to be mean Jerry. After all, I am the one who gave you a snack bar on your first day here. Anyway, you want to know my story, I’ll be more than happy to share it with you.
I never thought of myself as a overanalyzer. Some people had said some things about it to me before, but I always just saw it as noticing things. I don’t notice things like what the weather will be like, or if the stoplight is red, but I do notice the important things.
Like whether or not someone likes me. I never really thought of Bob that way until I noticed that he hit on me the first time I was here.
Bob: What? I didn’t…
Sue: It’s okay Bob. We might as well get our true feelings out, since this may be our last day here.
Anyway, when I saw that he was obviously attracted to me, I tried to think about whether or not I could like him in a deeper way.
Bob: Sue, you must have misinterpreted me. I never…
Sue: We don’t have to hide our feelings any longer, Bob. Don’t worry, I like you too.
Like I was saying, after thinking about it for a while, I realized that I could fall in love with him. Sure he isn’t the kind of man I am typically attracted to, but I need a change. Those men always end up being crazy, and finally I had found a nice guy.
Bob: Look Sue, I am glad that you think I’m nice, but if I have ever given you the impression…
Sue: That you are shy? Yes, I have noticed that, but every one of us has things that we find hard to talk about. It might have progressed faster, but our relationship would still be about the same, even if you had openly confessed your love for me.
Bob: Relationship? What relationship? Love? Are you kidding me?
Sue: Wow…I didn’t realize you were so sensitive. I’m sorry Bob, I should have talked about this in private with you, but since we both are fully aware of your desires, I didn’t think you would mind me talking about it in front of the group.
Bob: Please just shoot me Jerry…
Sue: There is no need for so much drama Bob. No one here will judge you for falling for me. Jerry and Bill have both had their own crushes on me, but we are all adults here.
Jerry: You are even more crazy than I thought you were.
Bill: I’ll admit it. I looked down your shirt once…
Sue: See, that is just the way it is Bob. Jerry is crazy in love, and Bill wants sex, but my heart is yours. Nothing can change that. Well, I guess if someone kidnapped me and harvested my organs, technically they would have my heart, but you know what I mean right? I love you. Don’t you love me? You can admit it.
Bob: Sigh…what the hell. We are all about to die here. Sure Sue, sure. I’ve loved you since the moment you walked through those doors.
Jerry: Oh man, I could destroy you. Get a preacher in here, order some boxes of wine; funny stuff. Anyway, I’ve heard enough for now Sue. Who wants to order a pizza?
Everyone: I do
Jerry: That’s what Bob said. (Laughing) Alright, everybody pitch in. Joe, you can call if you promise not to call 911. (Hands Joe the phone)
