Well, they'd hired him. Geoff hadn't expected it to be official at the school. He'd expected he'd get by on substitute pay til the end of the school year and someone great would come and take over the position.
"So we should celebrate," Geoff told Dayton when he got home from work.
"Like how? Grill some steaks?" Dayton shrugged.
"Its a little cold for that. I just thought we could go out for dinner, you know." Geoff smiled.
"You and me?" Dayton said as if he might have someone else in mind.
"You have a problem with that?"
"No," Dayton shrugged.
"I'm not going to tell anyone you're my boyfriend," Geoff said. "Is that what you're afraid of?"
"I didn't- Look, I thought you would call Tony and want to have, you know, all your friends gathered around," Dayton told him. "Not just me."
"Why not just you?" Geoff winced.
"Its fine. Really." Dayton nodded. "I'll even clean up. Its a date."
"You're sure?" Geoff thought he'd been pushy then. Perhaps they should have stayed in.
"Look, we went out when I needed you there with Bex and me. That was cool. Its not a problem." He promised.
"OK," Geoff nodded then to get ready.
"Good. It'll be great. Promise I won't get fuck'n drunk or anything." Dayton then grinned.
