"I saw Bruce at Sweatbox today..." said Charlie.

"Bruce?" replied Kellen.

"Bruce..." repeated Charlie. "You don’t remember Bruce? Australian Bruce?"

"Oh, right..." nodded Kellen. "I think so. You used to work with him, right?"

"He was not expecting to see me behind the reception desk..." grinned Charlie. "I guess it kind of kills the anonymous buzz of a bathhouse. How was Brussels?"

"Good..." nodded Kellen. "Busy. Intense."

"Intense?" asked Charlie.

"There was just a lot of information coming at me very fast..." shrugged Kellen. "In French."

"You speak French?" asked Charlie. "I didn’t know you spoke French?"

"I don’t..." said Kellen.

"Oh..." smiled Charlie. "How did you cope with that?"

"I just kept nodding and smiling and saying yes to everything..." shrugged Kellen.

"How did that work out for you?" asked Charlie.

"I’m not sure, to be honest..." replied Kellen. "The big pitch meeting for the next issue of the magazine was a bit of a struggle. Everyone was talking, all at the same time. I’m honestly not sure what I’m supposed to be writing. Plus, I think I’ve agreed to become a shareholder in their company."

"A shareholder?" said Charlie. "What are you talking about?"

"I really don’t know..." shrugged Kellen. "It’s some new venture they seem to be very excited about. There were diagrams and share percentages and everyone talking about how much cash they were putting in, and my name seemed to all over it."

"When did you agree to that?" asked Charlie.

"I’m not sure that I actually did..." sighed Kellen. "I guess they asked me a question at some stage and I just smiled and nodded."

"How much might you have to put in?" asked Charlie.

"Probably more than I can afford..." shrugged Kellen. "Who knows? I’m hoping that they’re going to email me something so I put Google Translate to work. Anyway, what are we seeing tonight?"

"Coming Clean..." said Charlie. "It's a gay theatre classic."

"Is it going to be any good?" asked Kellen.

"It’s gay theatre, darling..." grinned Charlie. "Don’t get your hopes up."
