They were going to go to another gay pub perhaps a mile away from The Lord Grey on a street which ran parallel to their street . It was called The Lambs Go Bar. Keith assured them it was a “mixed” pub, and no one minded gay couples, hand-in-hand or kissing.
“It'll be nice to get away from here,” he said to Jason. “You and Luigi will loik it.”
Jason and Keith had worked together for several days after they'd spent the night together with Luigi at Keith's flat. Jason had been afraid there would be awkwardness, but it had been the opposite. Sometimes Keith would touch him on his torso or his bum as he passed, and they always kissed when they met or parted, but there was a link between them now which was not quite one of lovers but was closer than mere friends. Jason caught himself admiring Keith's bum as he bent over a table to reach glasses and bottles from the far side. When their eyes met, Jason would find himself enjoying the chocolate warmth of Keith's. He hadn't forgotten that Keith was positive, but he no longer felt the abject terror he'd felt when he'd first heard about it. He trusted that there was lots of stuff they could do which wasn't particularly risky. At the internet café he researched AIDS and the risks of infection. There had been a time when he would have run a mile in the other direction. But Brent's suicide, and all that had happened before and after had hardened him. Besides, he was fond of Keith. More than fond. He wanted to please him and make him happy.
