2:30 AM Seamed a busy hour, as Britt along with two friends were also merging into the small amount of traffic left on highway 101 south.
“That was a lot of fun Britt,” David said looking over at Britt from the passenger seat of Britt’s 325i BMW. “We should do that more often guy.”
David was Britt’s alternate work out partner and both men went to the same high school even though they did not know it at the time. David also had a body that came from hard work and dedication, not that of a body builder by any means but a lean well-defined body, one which his life partner of three years Justin was defiantly in love with, and wished he could have. David, at 25 had a well maintained All-American boy look. With his modern hair styled done just right, and his light brown eyes, he was noticed ever were they went. A fact his lover did not like but had to admit was the main reason he was attracted to David in the first place.
“Yeah, I had a great time,” Justin said looking out the window from his seat in the back.
Justin was the exact opposite of both David and Britt, very thin with a natural definition, not from weights but from genetics. No matter how hard he tried he could not gain weight, but that didn’t bother him at all. Justin had a more mature look than his actual 23 a point that Justin knew would be to his benefit later in life. His father was now 44 and looked all of 30 at the most.
Justin’s job as a legal stenographer was how the group came to meet Britt. Justin was doing a job for Franklin Meyer and Beach, taking steno note at a deposition that Britt was the lead counsel on. After being in the same room with Britt for almost a week Justin felt that Britt was gay and set forth to find out if he was right. After some thought and a few discussions with Britt, Justin noticed that Britt was trying to pick up on him. Justin finally told Britt that he was gay and that he had a lover. As it turned out they both lived in the same area. After Justin invited Brad over for dinner one night the group became fast friends. It was not long after that, that David and Britt found out that they went to the same high school only a year a part. These facts were part of what made the threesome so tight. The fact that there was a mutual attraction that would never be acted on between all of them was a strong influence in keeping the group together.
“Well, I’ll tell ya, if I could do it I would go out every Friday like we did before. But work has been a bitch lately. Lot’s of Saturdays in the office.” Britt said, driving without looking away from the road.
“What’s going on anyway? The last two times I called you this week, you weren’t around or in court.” Justin queried.
“Yeah well, I’ve taken on a much heavier case load, to take up the slack from the two associations that just left the firm,” Britt responded.
“Left or let got asked out the door?” David looked over at their driver.
“Well, I guess I can tell you two this. They were arrested for embezzling firm and client funds. Had a great little scheme going too, but it blew-up last week and Lee had them arrested.” Britt explained.
“No shit.” David laughed.
“How much did they get?” Justin asked, still looking around out the windows.
“From our firm nothing yet, but they were quite close. The firm before us got taken for about half-a-million.” Britt said changing lanes with only needed conscientiousness of his movements.
“I’m sure they’re keeping this very quiet,” David said.
“Oh yeah… So don’t say anything to Lee. Anyway with any luck, though this could actually be a boon for me, it could lead to a partnership. Britt smiled.
“How long have you been at Franklin?” Justin asked.
“Three years now.”
At that revelation there was nothing to say from anyone, they sat in silence for a few moments.
“Who’s after hours party is this we’re going to anyway?” David asked.
“Lee Meyers the guy I was just talking about. He’s a partner, in the firm, you met him earlier at the bar. He and his other half have a huge house in Belmont.” Britt said.
“How long have they been together?” David questioned.
“Ten years. God, I wish I were with someone that long.” Britt looked up at the roof of the car as if to give a signal to some unseen person stuck to the roof. “I’m a nice guy, good job, nice house and damn-it ‘people like me’.”
“If you were with someone for ten years guy, you would have been sixteen when you got together.”
“At least I would have been out of high school.” Britt laughed
“Well, I’ll marry you.” Justin stuck his head up in between the front seats to look at Britt.
“Thanks, Justin, but don’t you think David might have something to say about that.”
“Yeah, I’ll marry you too,” David said smiling.
“Thanks, guys but you know how I hate three ways.” They all laughed as Justin repositioned himself in the back seat and refasten his seat belt.
