Brad and Troy first met on a Monday morning when they both reached for the same scone at their local coffee shop.
“Sorry, go ahead,” Brad had offered.
Troy went ahead, and then he watched as Brad reached for his own scone. Troy liked what he saw.
“Where do you work?” Troy asked, as Brad was obviously dressed for an office job.
“Down the street at the tech firm.”
Troy smiled, and the two men shook hands and exchanged names. Troy noticed Brad’s wedding band and he held his own hand in such a way so that Brad would not miss his own band of gold.
With a slight chuckle, Troy said that he might see Brad here again sometime.
“I come here every morning before work,” Brad offered.
That was all that Troy needed to know about this man, for now.
