Telephone Truth

I had always had a crush on my neighbor, so I was really excited when we finally hooked up. We had been together for four years and had a little boy together. I thought everything was great until I got his phone bill and noticed a number that was not familiar. This number was one he must have called a lot, too, according to the phone bill. I called one day and a girl answered. I found out that he had met her about a month before, and he told her that I had died giving birth. When I confronted him about it, he lied. Then he got mad at me for going through his phone bill. Needless to say, I left. But because of our child, I still have to see him everyday.
