Unbound fidelity and the measure of dedication erasing doubt.

Constraints of owning a business weigh heavy on a couple.

I own Guerilla Moves, a gym catering directly to the LGBTQ community. I advertise and promote at the fantastic nightclubs around Boystown in Chicago. My favorite haunt, Hydrate Nightclub Chicago!, sent me tons of gym members.

Best jewelry around.

My favorite spot to shop for fabulous rings and bracelets was and always has been Inkling because they carry the oddest, coolest, unique pieces you can’t find anywhere else. The store is right at 2917 1/2 N Broadway which is close to our gym.

An economy of desire and broke partner is difficult to sustain.

Walking home from work is a nightly ritual. Lizbeth and I find it a wonderful time to talk and we made it a rule to never speak about the business for our stroll.

All I heard is “Hey Quee…” and I felt my head explode. Instant stars everywhere, then blackness. My night suddenly took an unexpected turn.


The scene continued for what seemed like forever but for some reason, though I was there I was mute. I couldn’t yell, “Stop!” or anything else, only watch with disgust and arousal as my man enjoyed himself with a bar-pickup.

Shock and relief.

Lizbeth caressed my head and held an ice pack against my neck. He spoke softly to me.

A mistake to believe superiority.

“I came after you a few minutes after you left the gym,” Lizbeth explained.

Second awakening.

Before I could say yes the middle-aged skinhead lying on our basement floor struggled at the ties roping him in a bundle. He screamed but only for a few seconds before Lizbeth hopped calmly to his feet and stuffed an old smelly sock into Mike Gotts’ mouth.

Engagement and Restoration.

Our wedding was spectacular. We rented Hydrate Nightclub, Chicago! for the after party. Having recovered financially a year after our incident we could afford just about anything. Guerilla Moves became the hot spot to train, our gym is a bigger hit than ever.
