Wind Tunnel

Brooklyn Boys (A Short Story)

by E. Davies

Wind Tunnel - E. Davies - Brooklyn Boys
Part of the Brooklyn Boys series:


I walked into the diner to grab a hangover special after another wasted night at Friction. When will I learn I'm never going to find The One in a bar? I need to get to know guys somewhere better, and where better to start than with speed dating?

Or even the owner of this diner. He's cute, shy, and very available. But despite how I come across on TV, I'm suddenly a tongue-tied mess when Jared's around. How the heck do I get over my fear of being left out in the cold?


Bubbles is my diner, and my life. I see a lot of love here in Brooklyn, next to a gay bar, but I never find love myself. Speed-dating hasn't worked out so far, but one more shot could bring the man I need into my life.

When I sit down at a speed-date opposite the suave, familiar weatherman who stumbled in last night for the hangover special, something clicks. I might be underdressed and unknown, but maybe I can offer something he really wants... or is this going to be just another let-down?

Wind Tunnel is the prequel to the Brooklyn Boys series but can be read on its own. This 13K short story contains bold fashion choices, perfectly crispy bacon, gossiping co-hosts, and more than enough inches for one forecast.

About the Author

E. Davies grew up moving constantly, which taught him what people have in common, the ways relationships are formed, and the dangers of “miscellaneous” boxes. As a young gay author whose role models were characters punished for their sexuality, Ed prefers his stories lightly dramatic, full of optimism and hope.

Now out and proud, he writes full-time, goes on long nature walks, tries to fill his passport, drinks piña coladas on the beach, flees from cute guys, coos over fuzzy animals (especially bees), and is liable to tilt his head and click his tongue if you don't use your turn signal.
