I sat there pondering last night’s events, inhaling my Double Happiness and wondering how I had come to be so far from this hypothesis. My body was currently working overtime trying to metabolize all those cocktails I had unwittingly consumed at 4am with that handsome stranger. We had met on Dagu Lu 大沽路, quite by chance, well I’ll keep thinking that because if it was divine intervention trying to send me a message- I’m screwed. I was somewhat inebriated by this point and I’m a total sucker for a thing of beauty. So when he suggested we go and grab another drink (no doubt he could probably tell I’d already had a few) I agreed almost instantaneously. He seduced me further over a few caprioskas till I was putty in his hands. Now after this it all gets a bit fuzzy, I remember dragging him back to mine and we had a rather intense exchange right on this chair. I woke up this morning only to find out I’d been robbed, that’s right the bastard had stolen all of my wordly possessions. All he left me with was this chair and a packet of Double Happiness... oh the irony of it all. [Kim Shillam]
