another brother

Instantly, Connor was sure everyone here thought he was all of 15. Except, Keith. Thankfully, Keith  knew he was almost 20. Of course, he'd faked being 21 for several years now. No one was keeping him from the clubs.

Of course, clubs didn't really seem to do it for him. Not lately. He really felt at home with Spencer, but this Gage...

Connor hadn't put it all in perspective til now.

Gage made him think of the Loras on Game of Thrones. He caught himself from asking him if he watched the show.

He gritted a grin, hoping he wouldn't say something silly.

He soon found out that Trevor and his girlfriend were in high school. Now he felt even a bit more dumb connecting all the dots. The puzzle of this family.

"So did you call your Mom for Mother's day?" Spencer looked at Connor who spaced out a moment.

"Oh, not yet." He wasn't going to go out on the porch to do it now on his cell. He popped a grape in his mouth instead and gazed at Sage, thinking he knew her from somewhere.

"You, work at the University, don't you?" At least that gave them something to talk about. The University.

"I work at No Frills." Gage suddenly spoke up as if he wasn't quite as oblivious as Connor expected.

Connor nodded.

"Well, I don't have job." Connor shrugged. "I'm looking in to it." Yet, he hadn't filled out any applications.

"Neither, did Spencer's last boyfriend." Gage said so matter of fact. As if, Gage might be more of a big brother to Spencer than Keith.

"I-I heard about that." Connor told him, hoping Gage didn't think he was a freeloader.

"I think they have an opening in the bakery where I work." Gage shrugged.

"Bakery?" Connor couldn't imagine working at a bakery. Of course, it would probably be better than fast food. Maybe.

"I used to do it, but I don't remember what I did." Gage explained.

Connor couldn't image Gage's curls under a hairnet. In fact, he couldn't even think of his own locks under a hairnet.

But Gage was right, he needed to find a job.
