Convict Love

This guy I know met this girl. I forgot where or how. But they became friendly. The guy I know lets call him Jake. So Jake starts liking this girl. But Jake learns she is in a relationship. The relationship is not so great. She is with this "looser", who doesn't like to work, likes the quick dollar. So Jake gives up, he really likes her though. One day, she calls Jake says hey whatcha doing? They start to talk, and they go out. Jake finds out she is no longer with her looser guy. (lets call her Beth). So Jake and Beth start hanging out. She told Jake she didn't want to rush into another relationship, and blah blah. She told Jake she didn't want to talk about her split up either. Jake being a nice guy left it alone. Beth being upset at her ex and all. Jake and Beth start getting serious. After couple months Beth (forgot what happened) was hurting for money. She couldn't afford her place. Jake had a very good job so he helped her out. Things were going good, So Jake and Beth talked, Beth moved in with Jake just to see where things go. Then Jake finds out (I think Beth told Jake) how and why Beth ended the relationship with her ex. It wasn't that they ended it because either one wanted to. Beth's looser ex got caught and went to trial and was convicted for burglary. Thats why Beth was behind on her bills and couldn't afford her place. Beth spent all the money for the looser's lawyer. Now Jake is a bit ticked. This is something she should have said to him long before he helped her out, and especially before they got involved. Beth knew Jake liked her a lot. (obvious she used him) Now Jake takes a moment. He is in shock. He is happy he is with her. But now he has a sort of trust issue with her. He understands she was embarrassed to tell anyone her ex is in jail. But Jake thought by the way Beth talked, that she finally woke up and dumped the looser. Jake talks to Beth. She swears up and down she is done with the looser. She is soooo happy with Jake. She never knew life could be so good. She loves Jake, and now she sees what a real relationship is like. She is done with the ex. She will never go back. Anyway he is in jail. Jake is like OK, but we are not gonna get married anytime soon. I really want to make sure things are right between us. 2 1/2 years pass. Jake sits Beth down. Wants to have a serious talk with Beth about their future. After all they have been together for 2 years. He wants to see how Beth feels deep down. His apartment was really for one person. Not meant for a couple. They have had some issues with room. Jake wanted to make sure with Beth things are good before moving ahead. She told him she loves him. He makes her so happy, blah, blah. So Jake asks her if she is really serious about being with him. She is so excited, says of course. So he tells her he wants to get a bigger place and all new furniture for the new place. After all his apartment was more of a bachelor place. He would have to sign a two year lease. She was all for it. She wanted to be with him. She loved him, and was soooo happy with him. Jake got the bigger place. Jake told Beth to pick out everything that would work also if they moved into a house in the future. He was taking things slow but he still planning for the future. They went and bought everything to fully furnish this two bedroom condo. Everything was bought new. Dishes, living room set, everything. He spent a lot of money for the items. He has a great job, he can afford it. Bought a lot of the items with no interest for one year. Easy for him to pay it off. Jake and Beth were happy. Nice place. They are always together, they would hang out with other couples all the time. Everything going great. Another year passes. Jake feels confident Beth loves him, that this is going to work. He feels his worries are over. It has been 3 years, and Beth is so happy. So he pops the question. She hesitates at first. She is surprised, did not see it coming, thinking Jake was taking time to make sure everything is perfect. She says yes. She is so happy. They start planning their wedding. Jake pays for everything. After another 6 months the wedding plans are getting set for the following year. Jake is happy, Beth is happy, all is well. Then Beth starts acting a little weird. Hey girls do that, they get nervous when the wedding thing finally sets in. Jake talks with friends, everyone says, oh she is just nervous. Beth is on the phone more and more. She ells Jake she had no idea it takes so much to plan a wedding. Now they are together for three and a half years. The phone rings and Jake picks it up its a collect call for the jail. Its Beth's ex calling. Jake hangs up, he is furious. Sits Beth down, starts to grill her about her ex, how long they talking, why, blah blah. Beth tells Jake, her ex just started to call. Her ex has no one else. He is going thru some things and just needed some one to talk to. Beth has know her ex since high school, and she felt bad her ex didn't have any one else to talk to. Beth assures Jake she loves him and wants to marry him, and for Jake not to worry. But Jake is not dumb. He keeps an eye on his phone bill and sure enough, Beth has been talking to her ex a ton. Beth tells Jake don't worry, I love you. My ex was calling because he is getting out, and has no one else to call. Beth told her ex she has moved on, but he keeps calling. She didn't want to tell Jake to ruin what she has. She loves Jake and wants to marry him, that's why she didn't say anything, she didn't want to worry Jake. She tells Jake she will cut it off talking to her ex. Couple weeks pass, Jake comes home early, Beth isn't home, the phone rings, its Beth's ex on the phone. Jake tells him not to call the number anymore. That this is his house (meaning Jake's house) and he doesn't want some ex boyfriend of Beth's calling. And there is a battle between the two guys over the phone, the ex saying ha ha you know she stills loves me you sucker, thanks for taking care of my girl while I was in jail, but you know she loves me and she will leave you to come back to me. Jake is like ha ha no she won't she loves me, we make love all the time, we are getting married. The ex is like, no your not, that will never happen. So Jake is not happy. He calls Beth, tells her what happened, and tells her they need to sit down later tonight, she agrees. So she gets down with doing what she had to get done. Comes home, sits down acting weird. Jake tells her, we been together over three and half years. They have a place together, bought everything new together, they have wedding plans. He wants her to stop talking to her ex. Beth tells Jake, I love you, you have treated me like a queen, I know I will have a wonderful life with you, you would do everything to make me happy. But I love my ex more. I did not realize it till he started to call asking my help to get him a small place, so he would have a place when he got out. I saw him, and i'm sorry but I love him, and am going back to him. She packed her stuff and left. Leaving Jake out with this expensive lease for another year, all this furniture and everything else he bought. I think he even bought her a nice car. And all the money he had to pay for the wedding which is non refundable. He was speechless to say the least. Took Jake some time to get over what happened. In the end he was at least happy it happened before he got married to her. Couple years later, while at work, Jake got a friend invite from Beth. He looked, she looked awful, run down, homely. Said she was single. He never replied back, didn't accept her as a friend
