Spy Thriller

I dated a dude once who seemed all mature and proper. But then, he started telling me about the guys who followed him. I got kind of scared, but he said it was fine; he was trained in "this kind of thing." He never really said it, but led me to believe he was some kind of spy. It was all very thrilling and I loved the rush, right up until he introduced me to someone he worked with. He talked to the guy in front of me and even shook his hand. Only one problem, no one was there! I told him that and he told me I was nuts. I later found out he was a schizophrenic and he had gone off his medication. Even though it was all in his mind, for a time it was very exciting!
