JIMON: "Are you flirting with me?”
(because you asked no nicely, it’s based on this picture.)
Simon walked into the bar and was a little taken aback when he noticed it was empty. Even more strange than that, Jace was behind the counter, cheerily building a Jenga tower.
“Oh, you’re early!” His boyfriend said, eyes widening.
Simon frowned, amused. “I can…go back later if you want. What’s going on? Is this the part where you tell me you got a gig on the side? I kinda like the idea of having a bartender for a boyfriend. Everyone will be, like, ‘are you flirting with me?’, because that’s what bartenders do, but I’ll just casually approach the counter and they’ll will be like, ‘oh, he’s so cool! That hot bartender just kissed him!’”
Jace chuckled, hands resting on the counter and his eyes cast low. He licked his lips and cleared his throat. “Yeah, something like that.” He lightly drummed his fingers on the counter, took a deep breath and said. “Uhm, I was kinda hoping I’d have time to finish this before you showed up, but since you’re here…wanna help me out?”
Simon shrugged. “Sure.” He put his phone down and picked one of the pieces. “Are we playing for something here?”
Jace pursed his lips, considering. “Nah. I don’t think so…no. Yeah, no, we’re not playing for real. Let’s just see how high we can make this thing.”
