A Rider-Bailey Production
Working at the Cafe Dela Lune had to be one of the best jobs in the world. Not only were the owners--Jules Delaney and Dominick Lunetti--the best bosses he'd ever had, but his coworkers were friendly and the customers were some of the best.
At nineteen years old he wasn't allowed to serve alcohol, but no one seemed to mind when he had to call Balls Murphy over to handle those customers. Why the guy let himself be called "Balls" was a mystery, but no one would give him a straight answer. Chef Andre would just laugh and give him a flirty wink.
Leon had started at the cafe right out of high school and he couldn't be happier. Great bosses, great coworkers, great customers, and practically everyone that came into the place was either gay or gay-friendly. He felt as though he'd been freed from prison or something.
He got hit on a lot, which was just one of those things. He was a good-looking guy, with dark hair and eyes and smooth, boyish skin. So it was to be expected that there would be those that would see him as a challenge, especially since he hadn't taken anyone up on their offers.
