Her Cousin Stole her Boyfriend

My cousin and I where on the phone talking about our relationships. I suddenly asked her if she would go on a blind date with my boyfriend's friend. She said no, that she was trying to settle down. I asked her with whom and I began to name all of her boyfriends. She was like, "No, with Lou." Lou was my ex-boyfriend. I just ignored her and started another conversation, because I thought she was playing. But, she kept saying, "I'm for real," and "I just didn't want to hurt you," and a whole bunch of other crap. I was getting angry, so I said, "Stop playing, because I'm getting mad." She said, "Do you want me to call him?" Sarcastically, I said, "Yeah," still thinking it was a joke. But, he got on the phone and was like, "Hello," and she said, "Hello, Arlene wants to know about us." He said, "How does she know about that?" I hung up in a fury. She called back saying she was playing, but I came to find out she was not. I soon found out she not only had an intimate relationship with him, but she was also 4 months pregnant by him. I just broke up with him three months ago. I was furious; I was so mad. She was my first cousin, like a sister. He was my first; I was with him for 2 years. She was always with us, because she went with his best friend. I never thought she would do such a thing. I don't know what to do.

— Arlene, 22
