New Life in Newtown - Chapter 9
I lead the handsome beefcake to the check-in area and got him all checked into his room.
"Now your room is at the top of the stairs first door on the left. If you need anything, just ask." I said as I smiled at him.
Then Dad surprisingly up. "I think you will need to cancel your interview for tomorrow."
"Why? What’s going on?"
"You just had your interview. I am Trent’s dad, but I own the barbershop. I am the guy you came here to meet and I am going to give you a chance."
"Oh my goodness. This is amazing."
"Now I noticed you kept staring at our heads. Why is that?"
"I don’t want you to think I am a freak or anything, but I love bald headed men. I think Patrick Stewart is so handsome. I wasn’t blessed like you two to be bald, so I just get to enjoy seeing it on others."
"Hey son, hand him that picture you keep in your wallet." Dad said as he looked at me with a mischievous grin.
I pulled a picture out of my wallet and showed him. It was a picture of me that was taken about 6 months ago, a little while before I started on this new journey.
"Wow, how long ago was that taken? I can’t believe you ever had a full head of hair."
"Would you believe that was only 6 months ago? My baldness isn’t real. Dad was kind enough to do it for me."
"Are you kidding? That isn’t natural? But, it looks so real?" Greg said as he started to rub my head. "Amazing"
"I have an idea. Why don’t you go put your stuff in your room and we go down to the barbershop so you can see where you will be working."
"That sounds great. I will be back in a few moments." Greg said as he rushed up to his room to put his things away. Dad gave me a wicked grin and I knew what he was thinking.
In no time at all, Greg returned and was excited to see the shop. When we arrived at the shop; Dad unlocked it, but he let Greg go first. Greg was stunned when he saw the place. He ohed and awed over the shop. You could tell instantly he was in love with it.
"This is stunning. I have never seen a barbershop that looked this awesome. I can’t believe I will get to work here."
"Come and let me show you the place." Dad said as he lead Greg in and I locked the door. Dad showed him around, what little there was to see. "Hey son, will you go get my box for me. You know the one."
I went upstairs to the apartment that we used as storage for our stuff. I quickly found the box Dad wanted and rushed back downstairs. When I got there they were talking, Dad was doing a good job of keeping him busy as I plugging in the wax unit to get it ready. It heated up quickly so I knew I did not have to wait long.
Dad had him sit down in the barber chair to finalise their chat. "So what do you think of my humble little shop?"
"I think it will be wonderful working here."
"Now since I am hiring you, I think you need a haircut my boy. Something that I think will make you look much better."
"Um, sure. This is so unexpected, but exciting at the same time."
"Just leave it to me." Dad said as he caped up Greg and quickly grabbed his clippers shearing off the top of his hair. The look of shock on his face was fun to see, but Dad knew what he was doing. Dad kept him talking the entire time as he went to work redoing Greg’s hairline. He spent the next 2 hours redoing Greg’s hairline to match his desires. Dad had a smile on his face as he ripped away Greg’s hair. Greg was wincing a few times during the waxing process, but overall it was a fun time for all of us.
By the end of it, Greg had an idea what was going on, but he never said a word. He did have a worried smile, but he still had that gleam in his eye like a kid on Christmas morning. When dad was finally done, he turned Greg around to see himself in the mirror for the first time since he started.
"Holy crap, is that me?" Greg said as he smiled and started rubbing his head. He was smiling gleefully as he enjoyed looking at his newly bald scalp. He had trouble believing he had a full head of hair only a short time ago. Greg looked like he had male pattern baldness for years.
"That is the you that was waiting to come out. Now I made sure it is permanent. So this is the new you. What do you think?"
"I love it. I never knew this could happen." Greg said as he smiled from ear to ear.
"I think you look pretty handsome with your new look."
"Thanks." Greg said as he leaned over and gave Trent a long deep kiss. As they kissed, they both started rubbing each other’s head.
After several moments Dad spoke up. "Alright you two, time to come for air."
"Sorry Dad. I don’t know what came over me."
"Bulls**t. I do. His new look turns you on more than your own."
"I think that goes for both of us, Boss."
"I have an idea. Instead of him staying at the inn, we let Greg stay with us. We have an extra bedroom and that way you two can get to know each other better."
Greg and I both loved the idea.
"Now that we got that settled, let’s get back to the inn and get him setup in his new bedroom. Then I want to take Greg into the city so we can get new jackets and capes for the shop. I want us to look really good when we open shop tomorrow."
The three of us headed back to the inn and quickly got Greg setup in the spare bedroom of our house. We then headed the pub to have a beer before Dad and Greg set out on their shopping trip.
