The Half of Us

Short-tempered, arrogant heart surgeon Jason Garcia grew up wanting a close-knit family, but believes he ruined those dreams when he broke up his marriage. The benefit of divorce is having as much random sex as he wants, and it’s a benefit Jason is exploiting when he meets a sweet, shy man at a bar and convinces him to go home for a no-strings-attached night of fun.
Abe pursed his lips in thought. “Three things you enjoy. Go!”
“No thinking!” he exclaimed.
“I don’t know. I, uh—”
“Fucking, college basketball, and cold pizza,” Jason replied hurriedly. He froze after the words popped out of his mouth, surprised by what he’d said. It was true, but not exactly the kind of information he threw out there. Except he had.
Abe was silent for few moments, then he blinked, cleared his throat, and said, “What’s your favorite team?”
Abe nodded. “And you like your pizza cold?”
Apparently they were moving forward with the conversation. Okay. “I like it hot too, but, yeah, I like it cold better. I always order extra so I can put it in the fridge for the next day.”
“I see.” Abe nodded again. “So, uh, do you have plans tonight?”
“No.” Jason shook his head.
“Neither do I.” Abe glanced down, bit his lip, and then looked up again. “Want to come over and do that first thing you enjoy?”
