Illustrator: pen tool clicking 3 points completes a polygon

I want to use the pen tool to form two lines which are perpendicular. However when I make a line and then continue to click the third point to form an L shape, Illustrator automatically forms a polygon.

enter image description here


The pen tool forms a path. It looks like you have a dark blue fill in your stroke and fill settings. Change the fill to “no fill” and you should just see the paths (with whatever stroke you have set). Any open path (which is not a closed shape) will fill even without being closed.
