The Boy Next Door

I grew up in the house next door to Mike from the time I was five. He annoyed me when we were younger, and I thought he was a complete jerk in high school. So, what a shock when I ran into him at a reunion and he was attractive and single. He told me he had divorced his first wife about six years prior. After hanging out with him for several days, we had sex. I was happy and falling in love with the boy next door. That was, until I found out he was married. Turns out, he did divorce wife number one (for cheating on her) and married wife number two a few years later. Here he was, cheating on her … with me! I dumped him and left his wife a very informative voice mail. Hope she dumped him too.
