     “Jack’s intelligent, considerate, kindhearted and handsome.” Jill paused for a moment, seemingly taking a breath of air and a sip of lemon iced tea simultaneously.
     Grace and Nikki shared a knowing glance. Jill always does this, they both thought.
     “But I’m not sure how faithful he is.”
     “You thought Rod had cheated on you even though he hadn’t,” Grace pointed out.
     “There was Dean,” Nikki reminded in a tone too matter-of-fact for such a delicate topic. “He was a grade F player.”
     “The majority of her suspicions have been false though.”
     “I’m right here!” Jill seethed at the recalled memories. “Jack seems way too interested in her. What should I do?”
     “It’s probably nothing but, if it would ease your mind, ask him about it.”
     “You’re such the voice of reason, Grace, but we don’t live in a reasonable world. Jill should spy on him.”
     “That’s so pathetic!”
     “It’s the best way.”
     Ignored once again, Jill leaned back on the hard café chair as she watched her friends bicker. It was like the angel and devil were arguing their cases, each wanting Jill to succumb to their beliefs.
     Her mind raced with thoughts as she watched the people around her. There was a couple, probably in their mid-twenties, who held hands across the table and stared into each other’s eyes. They were completely unaffected by the noise nearby.
     The noise was coming from a family of three. The baby was having a tantrum while his embarrassed parents pled for his silence.
     Jill’s eyes then traveled to the corner of the café where an elderly couple was hurrying to leave. Together they shook their heads in disapproval at the parents of the disruptive baby.
     Contemplating the stages of a relationship instilled in Jill a desperate need for control. Such a crucial element can’t be wholly dependent upon chance, she thought. I’m my own lady luck
