Still not back into the swing of things but I’m trying. And since I’m way behind in literally everything I’m dropping my snip and running. This is still from These Haunted Hills.
“And it’s you I care about, not the fanboy part of you. I mean that’s flattering of course but Josh, I like you for you. I came out as bi years ago to my fans when I wrote that into the series for John. If someone doesn’t want their kids reading my stories because I’m dating a man, it’s not going to matter to me. For every conservative dipshit who wants my books banned because of John’s orientation or mine, there are two people who’ll buy the books just because of the controversy. I want to be seen with you.”
Josh sighed. “Good. I haven’t told anyone. Well, it’s only been two days since you kissed me and god, I wanted to tell Cass but I haven’t. We hadn’t talked about it and the part of me that wants to shout to the world I’m with B.A. Halloran, the intelligent part of me knows that would be super uncool and disrespectful.”
I cannot get back into the swing of this to save my soul. However, I survived two weeks of being in front of the classroom and did not need to resort to my walker in lab. My cane is good enough so progress. I even joined the Y to keep this leg going in the right direction. That leaves little time for anything else though.
I’m picking up right where I left off with These Haunted Hills. Brendan and josh are driving around being geeks.
“Can I ask you a question now?”
“In Dungeons and Dragons you’re a chaotic good half elfin ranger, aren’t you?” Brendan smiled.
Josh’s head drooped. “I think part of me hates you for seeing through me so well but the other part of me is like wow, he knows Dungeons and Dragons. I am crazy about you.”
“I can live with that.”
“Want to roll up a character and join us?” Josh grinned.
“I don’t know I’d go that far but I want to go to the steampunk party. Think I’d be welcome?”
Josh all but danced on the seat. “Are you kidding? Everyone is welcome but of course you’re welcome. You could be my date…if you want to.”
The hesitancy in that last bit cut into Brendan. Did he think Brendan wouldn’t want to be seen with him? “Of course.” I would love to be your date. We did sort of skip that part, didn’t we? Did you think I wouldn’t want to be seen in public with you?”
“I wasn’t sure. I mean…” Josh sighed. “You’re famous and I’m…me.”
