Sid’s opening the front awning of the truck when Brian shows up with two paper cups in his hands.
“You bought coffee,” Sid asks and Brian stops five feet away from him. “We make coffee.”
Brian blinks at him and then down at the coffee. “Do you want it or not?”
Sid sighs and lets go of the awning so it floats all the way up then puts his hand out.
Geno starts his day by eating breakfast in front of the TV and ends up sponsoring a youth gymnastics teams.
Sid and the farm were in a bad spot, the worst spot, when Geno showed up on his doorstep with the help wanted ad that Sid put in the paper clutched in his hand.
Thalassophile- (n.) a lover of the sea, someone who loves the sea, ocean
Geno puts his hand on the back of Sidney’s neck, gently, without real pressure and Sidney can feel everything in him slowly folding.
He looks up, his pulse beating hard in his throat. “Take me home before I get on my knees in the fucking parking lot.”
Geno’s smile is, as always, best when it’s for Sidney.
It takes the whole season, but Sidney finally learns to let go.
