Chapter IV: http://www.debate.org...

Chapter V: The Plaza

Bsh1 walked off the stage and I hugged him immediately, thrilled with how well the entire production went.

"You were brilliant." I said as I hugged him.

"Thanks." Bsh1 replied, though he invariably knew that he'd been fantastic even before I spoke.

Bsh1 was only on the air for a little longer than fifteen minutes, but we stayed afterward for a while to thank the staff and the producers and it was about 11:00 PM when we left Rock Center. While there were plenty of street food options available, I thought that dinner back at The Plaza would be a more conscientious choice. Bsh1 and I were both tired, and we didn't especially want any more media attention that day. I called the hotel concierge to reserve us a table, and then thett to thank him for making this happen.

"I think we pushed Matt Damon back another night, but he'll just have to figure out how to accept that." Thett joked.

"I suppose he will." I said, amused myself.

When we arrived back at The plaza and walked back in, the handsome attendant was no longer there. It was another gentleman, slightly older, in his place. But I tipped him, nonetheless, as we walked into the lobby and through to the restaurant where our table was waiting.

"The usual?" A waitress I'd never seen before asked me.

"I think I'll have something simpler tonight." I said, impressed that she knew my drinking habits. I ordered a glass of red wine, and Bsh1 ordered a glass of white. The waitress departed. "I'm glad you got a chance to talk about your education bill."

"I am too." Bsh1 looked tired, but was very observably pleased with how the night had transpired. "I thought he would have pressed me harder about you and running for president."

"So did I. I'm glad he didn't." I took a sip from my glass just after the waitress set it down.

"I think Mikal knows how far he should go, even if we both know that he would have wanted to push further." Bsh1 sanguinely observed.

"What can I get for you gentlemen this evening?" The waitress asked.

"Surprise me." Bsh1, rather out of character, volunteered.

"I'll have whatever he winds up having." I laughed, and handed her the menu. I wanted a burger and fries, but I wasn't a teenager any more.

"We should order a few bottles of wine to be brought up to the room." Bsh1 suggested. He knew that champagne would have been more appropriate, but he knew that I didn't like it. I almost always preferred a good red wine or German beer instead.

"Just let the waitress know." I said. "We don't have to do anything until tomorrow afternoon. We can stay up late tonight and sleep in tomorrow."

It was a Thursday night, and I was reminded of my undergraduate days in Ithica spent drinking since, miraculously, all my friends and I found a way to avoid Friday classes. When the food arrived, it was as well presented as it was appetizing. Roasted chicken served over garlic and parmesan mashed potatoes with asparagus all in a mushroom sauce. It was the kind of meal that both red and white wine would have complimented. The waitress's choice impressed me, and left a note with her boss detailing just how impressed I was.

When bsh1 and I got back up to our suite, there was a gift basket from the show waiting on the dining room table and two complimentary bottles of wine beside that; one white, one red. Only the white wine was chilling. The night manager knew that I preferred wine at cellar temperature -and this kind of service was the reason that I stayed at the Plaza. Bsh1 uncorked both bottles and poured himself a glass of white and me a glass of red. It was better wine than I had with dinner, but that was to be expected as I'd only ordered a single glass, then. I opened the gift basket a little more, and withdrew a cigar from it.

"Do you really have to smoke that, now?" Bsh1 asked, impertinently. "Every time you smoke one of those you taste like an ash tray for the next three days no matter how much you brush your teeth."

I put the cigar back in the gift basket.

"Some other time, then." I retrieved my glass of wine and stepped out onto the balcony, overlooking Manhattan. Bsh1 followed.

"It's beautiful." He said, joining me outside. He left the door open.

"It is beautiful." I said, taking another sip from my glass. "Every time I come to this place, I can't help but be filled with wonder. This city is so beautiful, especially at night."

"You always have been more of a night owl..." Bsh1 leaned his head against my shoulder.

"You know, my insomnia went away when we moved in together." I kissed the top of his head and held him close.

"I know." He grinned, subtly implying that he knew exactly how good he was for me.

That...was really wonderful...in a way it's hard to express. And it reminds me of how wonderful you are. We could flip that last line, even. How good are you for me? I think that answer is a resounding: "fantastic."

But, for the record, I don't think you would ever smell like an ash tray...

That was very emotional.

And start to dream of somewhere
To relax their restless flight

I wasn't harassing her lol.

But yeah, I was poking fun that this guy is her governor and whom she claims to support for president.

There are three good reasons why it is foolish to support Governor Rick for president:

1. He's homophobic.
2. He accepted a crapload of federal money while at the same time tacitly endorsing secession and "state's rights."
3. Uhhhhhh...I can't remember. Oops.

The reason I ask about the sex scene is because I can work one into Chapter 6 (which will come out within the next 36 hours), but I don't want to do it unless more people want to see it than not. I mean, a gay sex scene can be controversial.
