    Summary

    “You never used to say his name before.”

    “He was a threat before,” Scripps replies, rather more bluntly than he means to. “Given he got his arse kicked by a baby there suddenly seems less of a possibility that him or his maniac followers are going to kill someone I care about.”

    Posner fixes him with an odd look for a moment, and Scripps wonders if he knows just how worried he’d been for his safety, how often he’d been thinking of him instead of his summer reading, how awful it’d been hearing of an attack but not knowing yet if he was safe.

    Summary

    "I passed by the school where I studied as a boy
    and said in my heart: here I learned certain things
    and didn't learn others. All my life I have loved in vain
    the things I didn't learn."

    "The School Where I Studied," by Yehuda Amichai, translated by Chana Bloch and Chana Kronfeld.

    -

    When Scripps gets to Oxford, certain things change and others don't. Or: Don Scripps grows up and, however slowly, attempts to come to terms with God, love, and himself.

    Summary

    Posner walks over to Scripps’s on New Year’s Eve, and so gives himself entirely too long to visualise all the ways things could go wrong. He almost hadn’t come, and still half expects to get a door slammed in his face and to go back to Oxford to find a box of all the things he’d ever given Scripps left outside his door. He’d been all set to curl up under a duvet with a book and a glass of wine to cry into, but Akthar had called and insisted he get out of the house and at least try and start the new year on the right foot.

    Summary

    “Well, I came out to Mum.” Posner drops heavily on to the unmade bed, creasing a few screwed-up papers as he goes.

    “Shite. How’d it go?”

    “Better than I thought, actually,” Posner hums. “Though I do think she’s mostly just pleased there won’t be any unexpected grandchildren in the picture. Except, well. She asked if I was seeing someone, and I thought Dad might take it better if he thought I was, so I said yes. Only that worked too well and now they want me to bring him home over the holidays."

    Summary

    “I often wonder if I’ll ever feel love like that.”

    “You will, Pos,” Scripps replies assuredly, thinking briefly of the name printed under the band of his watch.

    “If I find them, that is,” he smiles demurely, expression slipping into a frown nonetheless. “I do hope I’m not a horrible disappointment.”

    Summary

    You’re seven when you meet him, and he’s six.

    He insists that he’s six and a half, thank you, as he pulls himself to sit on the wall beside you. He’s small, smaller than you and Stuart and definitely smaller than Peter. His socks are still clean and white, the cuffs of his jumper crisp and new, and he kicks his feet.

    He says he’s called David, and he smiles at you in that little way of his.

    You tell him you’re Don, and sitting next to him, with your skinned knees and scuffed shoes, you smile and he laughs with you.

    Summary

    Scripps had nothing against London, nothing against the grey mornings when his alarm clock failed to wake him up and fog tried to swallow him whole as he dashed toward the nearby underground station. All in all, he was fairly pleased with the course his life had decided to take. And yet he didn't stop to think twice when Dakin sent him a telegraph and told him to pack his bags, book a boat ticket and start a new life.

    Summary

    All girls grow up someday.

    Scripps and Posner, from school through Oxford and beyond.

    -

    Scripps is observant, so it isn’t as if she doesn’t know about Posner and girls before the infatuation with Dakin. She thinks if she’d only paid better attention, she would have noticed sooner. Not so much about the girls perhaps, but at least about the lack of boys.
