    Summary

    “Are you okay, though? I could call for help. You hit the tree really hard, and…”

    “No! No, no, no. I don’t do hospitals. I’m fine… it’s just, my car. My car is not fine.” And it wasn’t fine. It definitely wasn’t drivable.

    “No, yeah... How about I call you a tow truck?” Just then the wind picked up and almost blew them over sideways.

    Patrick’s face stung from the bitter cold wind. He swore he could feel ice pellets hitting him on the cheeks, and the other man seemed to be just as pained. He had a better idea. “Actually, uh, I live five minutes from here. Why don’t you come back with me and we can call a tow from there. I’m Patrick, by the way. Patrick Brewer.” He extended his icy cold hand, and the other man reciprocated with his gloved one.

    “David Rose.”

    Summary

    He exhales a shaky breath and then checks his watch; the train is running late, and the later it gets, the more the anxiety builds at the base of Patrick’s spine. The more his brain whispers this is a bad idea, asks is this really something you’re ready to know? He tries to distract himself by observing the myriad of other people waiting—an older, heavy-set couple wearing matching t-shirts, a large group of loud teenagers with seriously abrasive accents, a distinctly European trio of men arguing in what sounds like German. He assumes they’re mostly tourists; he is, after all, staying near Times Square, and he’s pretty sure any self-respecting New Yorker avoids this particular station at all costs. It’s not like he was dying to eat at a New York City TGI Friday’s himself, but the hotels really did seem to be the best bang for his buck.

    The distant whir of the oncoming train sparks him out of contemplating subpar American food, and he swallows, mouth dry, feeling more like a man on his way to a sentencing hearing than a college graduate on a solo vacation, going to a bar for a drink.

    It’s just a bar. It’s just a drink.
