Smooth Talker
By Patt

Jim told Blair they had to go to make it in time for the dinner reservations. Blair didn’t argue at all. Both men walked to the elevator and got on. Once in the parking garage they got into Jim’s truck and began the drive to Saccony’s.

“So Jim, what’s going on?” Blair finally asked on the way there.

“Let’s wait to talk until we get to the restaurant.” Jim knew he was being mean, but he didn’t want to have a serious talk with Blair in the truck. He was trying to be smooth and smooth didn’t include a truck conversation.

They arrived at Saccony’s and were seated immediately. Blair looked over at his happy partner and frowned. He wondered why Jim had to be so damn happy about telling him about some woman.

“So Chief, I have something to tell you.” Jim began.

“I figured as much. You’ve been singing, whistling and talking to yourself all day long. Someone is making you happy. So you want me to move out, right?” Blair thought it would be easier if he said it.

“For being a detective, you’re not detecting very well. I’m in love but not with a woman.” Jim beamed.

“You do men now? Where have I been? Sleeping all day and night?” Blair was totally floored.

“I love you, Blair.”

“And I love you, Jim. Now break the news to me.” Blair wasn’t getting it at all.

“You are the news, Chief. I love you and this is a date.”

“Oh man, I can’t believe I didn’t see this coming. This is great news, Jim, what a way to start the first date.” Blair was practically bouncing in his chair as dinner came to the table.

“So it’s up to you where we go from here, Blair.”

“I say we finish eating and go home and make out. What do you think?”

“I think it’s a great idea, I’m not the only smooth one here tonight.” Jim smiled and knew things were going to be fine.

The best was yet to come.

The end.
