    Summary

    The blanket’s thin. It’s too early for either of them to sleep; the whole room is still quietly chatting and musing about the weather, or something else equally moody. They’re curled up at either end of the cot, arms around their knees. Jack is tapping his fingers rapid-fire, a nervous habit that Davey picked up on the first time they met.

    Summary

    David runs a hand through his hair. So that’s what Albert’s text was about. Race is notoriously bad at taking care of himself, and sometimes the only way to get any information out of him is to gather a bunch of his close friends and be aggressively supportive until he cracks.

    Summary

    David has the air of someone who has been broken down by life again and again; but he doesn’t have life, not in the sense that Race does. He doesn’t get that privilege. Knowing that breaks Race’s heart.

    Summary

    And so he stands on the front steps, looking more like he stepped out of a low-budget romantic comedy than the preferred 19th-century period drama.

    Summary

    The thing that hurts the most, though, is the times when it really seems like Jack is doing something. They come often, some of them oh so subtle and some obvious enough that David is sure Jack knows what he’s causing.

    Summary

    Race can hear the sand shifting as David’s footsteps draw closer. He doesn’t turn his head to look. It’s an eight minute walk from their apartment; Race isn’t quite sure how David found him, but he doesn’t have the willpower to form an opinion on that right now.

    Summary

    Les, who had felt like the youngest of the group (he hadn’t been - some of them had started as young as six), is back in school. He’s made an effort to keep in contact, and Race appreciates it more than he’s said. Still, visits are few, after their lives took such different paths.

    Summary

    Katherine’s mask fell. The tension in her shoulders dissipated, her expression shifting into something more earnest, more serious. Sarah wasn’t sure that this was the real Katherine; she was sure there was more than one real Katherine. But it was considerably closer than they’d been minutes earlier.

    Summary

    His name was Jack Kelly. Well, that was how he introduced himself, and when a boy all of fifteen years shows his face – which, for all he denied it, was quite distinctly smeared with blood – at the lodging house, you just aren’t inclined to question him.

    Summary

    To drive to the gas station together and buy multipacks of bubble gum, and to remember their matching friendship bracelets from elementary school, and to wake up with a kiss – this was what made the biggest impact. Race couldn’t imagine doing it with anyone else.

    Summary

    Race’s name from David said more than a conversation could. Like David could see him as a person instead of a persona, as a who instead of a what, like he was reminding him that “hey, I’m here, and I know you, and I love you.” Sometimes Race didn’t want to talk, and that was fine, because all he needed was to hear David say his name.

    Summary

    And Jack would remember again that it wasn’t a one-way mirror; this was an exchange, and he knew he was fucked if David saw anything he didn’t intend to show. And yet, still, a part of him wanted to break the dam. To give David the thoughts he’d never be able to put into words.

    Summary

    Race didn’t particularly want to think about the past two years. He didn’t want to think about home, he didn’t want to think about school, he didn’t want to think about their stupid little hometown, and he would rather do anything than think about living without Spot.
