Brooklyn Boys (A Short Story)
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.
