Wrist work, hard pressed, and coming up… This is what I’ve been exposed to for the last little bit. It has been funny watching Dorian squirm though. I got Dorian all wrapped up so we could sit at the front desk and wait for the food. He’s going through my books now, of pieces I’ve drawn and actual work I’ve done mostly humming here and ahhing there.
“Tell me Dorian why Tennessee? Other than this park you’re putting in.”
“I’m from LA and I’m just here for the park. The old man thinks it’s a good place to put in a new one. He can’t be here so I am.”
“Got a woman back home? Maybe a kid or two?”
Dorian shakes his head no. “No?”
“More the hit’ em and quit’ em type?”
“You’re very vague.”
“Your questions are open ended.”
“Ever planning on getting rid of the bad boy look?”
“This is just my weekend gear. Monday through Friday, I’m in a suit.”
I look from Dorian down to myself. “Yeah, not me.”
“We all got our uniforms. Yours is just less than mine.”
I stand as I see the pizza guy heading for the door. I walk past Dorian to get the food. Dorian goes to get up. “Don’t worry about it’s already covered.”
“I said I’d take care of it.”
“It’s your birthday remember?” Dorian gives me a half-hearted grin. I get all the food in and lock back up. I move things off the desk and set the food out. “Want a Pepsi or Coke?”
I nod walking off down the hall. I grab a Pepsi for me and a Coke for Dorian. As I come back down the hall I ask another question. “How’d you get out without your shadow?”
Dorian starts laughing. “Um, I sneezed.”
He sighs. “Connor’s a bit of a clean freak. So, when I sneezed he was afraid I was getting a cold, he started disinfecting the cabin right down to the dog.”
“Are you sure he isn’t gay?”
“No, he’s got a girlfriend back home.”
“Makes sense. He seems like a good one.” Dorian scoffs and shakes his head. “You’re getting better, but you’ve been a dick from our first meeting.”
“You ain’t been no picnic either, sweetheart.”
“I never said I wasn’t a bitch.”
