Jury duty isn’t sitting well with Steven. He’s bored out of his mind but he must fulfill his civic duty. On the day of the trial he meets Mike, the Bailiff, and jury duty takes on a whole new meaning. Getting to know each other over a quick lunch may be the start of something good. But when they return to court what started out so promising might now be in jeopardy.
Poor Steven having to suffer through jury duty, I know the feeling. My two experiences were no fun either and I wanted out badly. In my case there was no gorgeous Bailiff to take me to lunch but fortunately I was excused from service. Steven is less than pleased to be there, anyone in his vicinity knows it. His dour mood changes swiftly when Mike enters the deliberation room. From that point on, the two men bond and hit it off rather nicely. Only thirteen pages in length it’s a fast paced sweet read. I wish there would have been a little bit more, especially in the romance department. However, it was an highly engaging short that I think you’ll enjoy.
