Hollywood, he had lived the same lifestyle as me. Bachelor brothers was
what we used to call ourselves. But now, they were engaged, and he was
more whipped than a sub.
He clinked his glass against mine, and we downed what liquor was left.
Immediately, a waitress appeared to hand us refills.
He held his scotch over the side of the railing, balancing the liquor in the
I did the same, sighing as I gazed at all the twinkling lights below. “It’s
been a hell of a run for us so far, and we’re only getting started.”
