It was lunchtime in the diner and every Top, Bottom, Queen, and Twink were in, ordering low fat this and that.
"Honey, the only thing on this menu, that's low fat is the water." I said to young blond, who looked if he needed some of my lasagna to put some meat on his bones.
"Then I'll have a glass of water." He said putting the menu down, and looking up at me with a fucking superior sneer on his face. I recognized some of his friends and saw them wince at they way he was talking to me.
"Okay, one plate of my foot up your ass and side of manners, coming right up." I said smiling and walking over to the ordering window.
I ripped the order slip off and stuck in the revolving order carousel, I tapped the bell and heard another ring, signaling someone was walking in the front door. More snotty Queens who think there's protein in a glass of water and a cracker probably. I turned and saw a gorgeous piece of man flesh walk in.
He was dressed in all black, black pea coat, black shirt, black jeans and black boots. The whole effect made his sparkling blue eyes stand out and be noticed. His black hair was cut in a style that I hadn't seen before, and his swagger was that of a man that new who he was and dared anyone to try and say different. When he got closer to the counter I saw hidden in his eyes, some one who was lost and alone. Someone who needed a friend.
He came to the right place. He sat down on of the stools and smiled at me as I walked up to him.
"Jesus Christ, you're fucking gorgeous." I said making him laugh. It was a deep sound, making dimples appear on his smoothly shaven face.
"Thanks." He said unbuttoning his coat, and laying it across his lap.
"What can I do ya for Honey?" I asked taking my pen out and licking the tip.
"Something hot, that fills the void." He said, some of the sparkle leaving his eyes. Well if there wasn't double meaning in that, I would give away my velvet cat painting.
"I got just the thing," I said. "One bowl of mother's love!" I yelled at the serving window. I heard Danny one of cooks, yell back in response. I turned back to the gorgeous man and leaned on the counter.
"What's your name honey?" He looked down for moment considering.
"Nice to meet you Jack, I'm Debbie and this here is Liberty Diner." He smiled at me once again showing the fucking adorable dimples, and perfect white teeth.
"You here just visiting?" I asked him as I held up a coffee pot. He nodded.
"I'm hoping to find a home here, seems to be my kinda place." He said as I poured him a cup.
"Don't mind me asking, but are you Gay honey?" I asked setting the coffee pot back down.
"Why you offering?" He asked a mischievous glint in his eyes. I laughed and smacked his cheek, making him smile.
"I got me a man, named Carl. Local Detective." He nodded appreciative. Then got serious.
"Well, I guess you could say, I swing both ways..." He said, eyebrow raised. I laughed and looked around the diner.
"Well you got choices from both worlds here." I said gesturing with my head to the inhabitants of the room. He turned and looked and his eyes settled on Brian in a booth reading a newspaper and drinking his own cup of coffee. I saw his blue eyes darken with desire.
"Oh no honey, not that one.." I patted his hand as he turned back to me.
"Why not?" He asked. Justin walked in from outside and slid into the booth next to Brian and they kissed. He looked a little crestfallen, but not much as he watched them.
"Ahhh..." he said. I nodded as the bell rang over by the counter. Thinking, I walked over and grabbed the steaming bowl of chicken soup and carefully carried it back to him. Setting it in front of him, I leaned back down on my arms.
"Why don't you come over to dinner tonight," His eyebrows rose.
"Why?" He asked incredulous of a perfect stranger asking him over.
"Cause it looks like you need a home cooked meal and you can meet some of my family, make some new friends." I said as someone yelled for me.
"Hold your fucking tiaras, I'm coming!" I yelled back. He laughed.
"Sure," He said eyes going soft. "I'd like that." A matchmaking scheme began to form in my head, he and Em would be cute together. I smiled softly back at him, and walked over to take another order.
Looks like I can add another one to my list of Lost Boys. I thought to myself smiling.
