Be Patient

A18E188B-D17A-419C-9BBE-3D9304CD4F85Wait,” Sam said. “Are you daft or something? You want us to show up at the ballpark for the baseball game in a horse and carriage? Won’t that be a bit conspicuous?”

“Shh, don’t make a sound,” Adam said. “Close your eyes and open your mind. Think of the buzz it would create for us to show up in a horse and buggy? You’d be all over Facebook, Instagram, and Snapchat. It might even result in a feature article in People Magazine or get you on the cover of Sports Illustrated.”

“Yeah, I don’t think so,” Sam said. “I’m a professional baseball player, Adam. And you’re my agent. You know that I want to be known for my prowess on the field and at home plate, and not for my prowess in the bedroom, especially with another man. That would be way too distracting.”

Sam could see the disappointed look on Adam’s face. He grabbed Adam’s hand, leaned in and kissed Adam on his cheek. “Be patient. I promise I’ll come out at the end of the season.”
