791 words - 3 pages

As I came around the corner on the gravel path, I stopped to look around. There were trees on both sides of the path, and on the left there was also a bench. I was relieved to see that no one was sitting on the bench.

But to become legit I would have to ditch Johnny, and who can honestly say that they could just ditch Johnny?"Hey, listen!" I shouted in rebuttal. "Poker is part of who I am right now, and I like who I am right now,...
