For a month Daveed tried to keep contact with you strictly as a friend. You entertained the idea for a while but you knew ultimately this was just going to bite you in the ass. You stopped replying to him and after Daveed’s fifth attempt at reaching you with no reply, he got the message. It’s been around 6 years since the day you left. It was difficult at first but eventually you found your path. You went to culinary school and excelled so much you were offered a job before you even graduated. Of course you took it, working at a four-star restaurant was more than enough to keep the lights on and food on your plate. After a year and a half of working for different world renowned chefs, you made the risky decision to open your own restaurant in New York City. Thankfully, it was the best decision you ever made. Your restaurant took off and you were able to keep up a steady hype. Eventually you expanded into catering and you were being pulled left and right from state to state. Today you were booked to cater a dinner for a bunch of entertainment elites. You decided to go personally to this event to oversee everything because you were curious what actually happens at these fancy dinners.
“The shrimp cocktails go over there.” You pointed toward the back of the room, stepping out of the way of your workers who were transporting food around the huge hall.
Lgbt people: *get murdered, have rights taken away from them, literally can’t go to certain countries because being lgbt is illegal there*
Cis aces: hello I’m Dave I’m a cis male who is heteroromantic and only feel sexual attraction to my wife once every 2 weeks
Tumblr: WELCOME TO THE LGBT COMMUNITY! You’re valid and welcome in our community! Pride month? IT INCLUDES YOU! We ALL are lgbt 😁😘
It took you a month to come to this decision. You didn’t necessarily want to do this but you had to. You were still trying to come up with a way to tell Daveed, so instead of cherishing the short time you had with him, you were pushing your food around your plate with your fork as Daveed talked to you about a trick he played on his castmates while on set for a movie he was filming.
“Babe? Are you alright? You haven’t eaten anything or talked since we sat down.” Daveed asked, setting down his glass of water.
You mustered up a smile, trying to keep things calm for as long as you can.
