Dwayne needs his job at the plant, but Quinn is all over him like a dirty shirt. It’s a small place dominated by working class machismo, and people do talk. A little respect, a little consideration might go a long way. Dwayne shouldn’t have to punish people, or teach them a lesson for being idiots. If Quinn grabs him one more time, Dwayne’s going to slug him. A short story of gay romance.
