There’s No Rush
Jim found himself getting hard all day long, each time he came in contact with Blair. He actually didn’t even need to be in contact. He would hear his voice and get hard. He would sense him in another room and get hard. This wasn’t turning out like he had planned at all.
He needed to slow down and keep things calm. The last thing in the world he wanted to do was frighten Blair off. So he had a new mantra that he kept saying over and over. He thought it might work, but it wasn’t really because it wasn’t true.
He kept whispering, “No being in love in the bullpen.” It wasn’t working at all. He was going to have to just hang in there until dinner. He was wondering if the day would ever end.
He decided on a new mantra. “This is Blair and with Blair we don’t need to rush.” That one seemed to work a little better. Everyone in the bullpen thought he was nuts because he kept talking to himself the entire day.
He looked up at the clock and saw that it was almost time to go. The new mantra was working.
