Excerpt: 
He’s very obviously taken, and the only signs I’ve seen that he wants for anything is that deep whiff he takes of the sugar laced air every time he passes my window. I don’t know why they don’t stop more often if the kid wants a damn waffle but it’s not my business.
So, like a ship in the night, my little duck passes by, inhaling deeply as he goes. My ego tries to convince me he’s added a glance my way but I know I’m projecting. I want him to look at me and see beyond my tattoos and practically shaved head. To see beyond the scars and the flaws, both physical and emotional. The remnants of my time on the streets when I would pick a fight if someone looked at me sideways. It took me a while to figure out it wasn’t worth it.
These days, I mind my business, literally and figuratively, and don’t get involved in other peoples’ problems. Last time I tried to help out a friend, it almost destroyed the best thing that ever happened to him.
Zach, my ex-turned-good-friend wanted to do something special for his boyfriend. He mentioned a video of a group scene that his boyfriend liked and I coerced them into a three-way that neither of them were ready for. I’m not sure Zach will ever forgive me even though they managed to move past it.
So I wait to see little duck every day, and now that I have, I can lock up.
