But when Danny approaches Al, the result is totally unexpected: Al is a tormented soul, he is almost afraid of his desires, if he wasn’t so good in bed someone could think he is a virgin to man on man sex. With a lot of patience and a little of persuasion, Danny manages to bring Al in one of the upstair rooms, and the following encounter is good for both of them. Al is as caring and gentle in bed as he was sitting and chatting, he makes Danny feeling good, and even if it’s only for one night, loved. The morning after Danny is unable to forget Al, but apparently also Al is unable to forget something or someone, that is preventing him to have a long-term relationship.
This is a seasonal romance, even if the author didn’t push to much on this point: maybe Al’s loneliness was more acute due to the approaching festivities, maybe Danny himself was more open to possibilities; but even if the ace was not played, in any case there is a bit of seasonal magic in the story, and it was a nice contrast with the type of story. Frank, the owner of the gay club, is a really nice character, a man who owns a cruising bar, with adjoning rooms by the hour, but who is basically playing the role of the fairy matchmaker.
