It becomes apparent that the boy, in his ostensibly singular behaviour, is socially neglected, looking for a new male caregiver. The writer, liaised to a distinctly younger woman, inapparent in the beginning, and the boy slowly make friends with each other - finding out that they're able to talk and deal with each other quite outspoken. The boy does flourish, the unexpected contact does good to the childless wordsmith as well - professionally and personally. His liaison becomes more and more intensive, and the boy, by his new father figure, meets same-aged of both sexes and finally, after painful invectives in his past, his first great love. Being puzzled by a male friend, equally burdened, who is bi-curious, he at last won't let himself be led astray from the erotical way he'd chosen, after they mutually had been sipping the cup. In the end, some big surprise awaits the writer. - This tale may encourage all those who can wait for the real, real thing - disregarding age, or what they may have chosen for to be good for them in platonic or sexual relationship. And don't give a damn for prejudices or malicious gossip.
