This week I’m returning to my WIP, Side Effects. (If you’d like to catch up, click here.)
Our narrator, Max, and his psychology lab partner, Damien, have taken a dinner break during which Damien has dropped a small bomb on unsuspecting Max:
“I’m gay,” Damien told his plate, “but I don’t know if I should be telling you–I don’t want to make you uncomfortable.”
Feigning nonchalance I definitely didn’t feel, I picked up a French fry and dragged it through my ketchup. “Noah’s my best friend; so why should your being gay make me uncomfortable?”
“Max,” Damien looked up to meet my gaze, “I’m betting that Noah doesn’t dream about you.”
The French fry landed in my lap.
“M … me?”
