Jess walked into the other room. I heard him say, "so you are back in NYC?" and things like, "great, you see, you should never have left NY, this is where you belong". Right after that, Jess came back over to me and hand gestured that he was going down the hall to put in a load of laundry. I hand gestured back, OK. So off he went, phone in hand and Bjorn on the other end of it.
I realized that I left something up on the roof, and it was pretty dark. I walked out of Jess's apartment and found him down the hall in the laundry room. I quietly told him that I was headed back to the roof to get something. He was still talking to Bjorn and he replied back to me, "okay". As I walked down the hall, I heard him tell Bjorn that he had a friend over tonight for dinner. A friend? Well, I guess I am, aren't I? I also heard him say, "we need to get together, lunch, maybe dinner?" At that point I got into the elevator and was gone.
After a few minutes of this bullshit we talked about it. Apparently, Bjorn is a Swiss citizen who works for the government and who Jess met last summer at a party. They dated, Jess said he really liked him. They had a brief sexual relationship that didn't have time to develop because three weeks after they met, Bjorn was moving back to Switzerland. Jess told me that he was disappointed, he liked him a lot but they really never had the time to bond and to get really tight. I asked Jess, that had he had the time, does he think Bjorn might have become more then just a sexual fling and could it have grown into something serious. His answer was, "yes it might have" but he said that Bjorn had some issues with relationships and that alone had bothered Jess, even after the brief time of knowing him. How fucking funny or hypocritical is that? Jess wasn't happy that Bjorn had issues about relationships and had issues about committing? Jess! Isn't that the pot calling the kettle black or whatever that fucking expression is!!
Anyway, Jess made it seem like he didn't want to have a sexual encounter when he saw Bjorn that last time. But, after speaking with Jess more about it, his response changed. Jess told me that he was horny that night and that he wanted to have sex with Bjorn, but Bjorn wasn't into it and that it was because of Bjorn, not Jess that sex never occurred. Hmmm, so if it was up to Jess, it would have happened!
