EXCERPT:

         Well haven't I got myself into a pickle. Here I am sittin' on the shitter, trying to avoid the girl good ol' J.D. set me up with. Thinks he's doin' me a solid. But all he's managed to do was put me in a heapin' pile of awkward. She's not my type, at all. I'd much rather have the plump brunette who's fawnin' on the British fellow J.D.'s playing cards with. I think I'll have to play if I want her attention. I can handle her better than that upper crust mix-n-match any day. With or without a dick. Never stopped me before. The place is a lot cleaner than I thought it would be. Hardly any piss on the floor. And it's a progressive outpost. The toilets are unisex, so I didn't have to deal with the awkwardness of men who think a guy using a stall is for pussies. I learned to squat forward a long time ago, it looks like you're pissin' standin' so no one thinks twice when they see the feet. It's a handy trick.
         “Hey Danny you still in here?” J.D.'s voice slurs through the room, then he starts bangin' on the stall doors. “C'mon, little brother.” He's started callin' me that after his third bourbon. “Did ya fall in?”
         Guess I can't hide in here all night. Off I go.
        Opening the stall door led to J.D.'s landin' on me. I spun sideways fast as he reached out to me to steady his fall, grabbin' hold of my shoulder and the wall. Great he's fallin' down drunk now. Figures I'd fall in with one that can't hold his liquor. Guess I'm gonna have to carry his ass up to that room of his. Talk about a sobering experience. “Okay, come on, let's get you out of here.”
        “You know you're a good guy. Brave, and stuff.” J.D. slurred wrappin' his arm 'round my shoulders. As we came out of the toilet, the English guy and the girls laughed seein' me struggle. What did they expect? He was dead weight, and twice my size. Then my savior came. That busty brunette I had been lookin' at all night.
       “Your friend is going to lose his money tonight. His girl has moved along, which means he loses his room too. It’s part of the house rules if he can't perform he forfeits.”  She grabbed J.D.'s other arm. 
        “It's fine, what about you, I'll pay for the both of us whatever you want tonight just to get him a bed.” Was I really gonna break the bank for this stranger? Seemed so.
          “I think we can work somethin' out sweetie.” She smiled sweet. She smelled of soap, with dark red lips and nice teeth. I was enamored immediately.
           
            Her room was only just at the top of the stairs, thankfully. Paneled oak walls, and dark red sheer curtains cover the large windows. The bed looked sturdy as we flopped him on to the thick quilted mattress. While she went to fill a bath I started to pull off his boots.
He sat up as I got the first off and grabbed me by the face as he did the previous night. He rubbed his hand down my cheek.
            “You know.” He slurred. “You are awfully pretty for a man. And your skin... Why's it so smooth?” He leaned against me, rubbing his bearded chin on my cheek.
              “Jake? You're really drunk, and hittin' on me... Ain't gettin' you nowhere quick.” I tried to pull away, but he held me fast and tight. He kissed me on the mouth and I froze. Keeping my lips closed. But he insisted and next thing I knew his tongue went into my mouth. Then just as I got into it, he fell backward with a snore. I stood up, wipin' at my mouth and turned to see the woman who helped me with J.D.
             “I was wondering about you two. Does he even know?” She asked leaning into the doorway of the bathroom.
              “What's there to know? He's just drunk.” I laughed, starin' at him on the bed.
              “Come on sweetie, I'm not blind. There's not a shadow of hair on that pretty little chin of yours." She grabbed my wrist and began to unbutton my shirt. I tried to protest but she started to kiss my neck and I was a goner.  She pulled me into the bathroom shuttin' the door behind us.
