Summary: Dino is convinced to teach Terry a lesson when his lover flirts with the wrong person's man.
Dino sat in the shadows of the bar shrouded in cigarette smoke as he chain smoked his last pack of cigarettes. Negotiations he had been carefully cultivating for the better part of a week had broken down and he was left with a bitter taste in his mouth and empty handed.
Watching his lover shameless flirt with the bartender did nothing to improve his mood, and he was sorely tempted to drag the man outside and remind him who he belonged to.
A tumbler of bourbon hit the back of his hand and he looked up to see his waitress smiling down at him. "If you would like to teach your bloke a lesson, I'm more than willing to help you," she quietly offered.
"Because that's my lover he's flirting with," she replied with a determined gleam in her eye. "And, I happen to be the jealous type."
Dino chuckled. He loved to live dangerously. He stubbed out his cigarette, knocked back the bourbon and rose from his chair. "Let class commence," he said as he slipped his hand into hers and allowed her to lead him from the bar.
