    Summary

    "Why did you kiss me, that day?"

    Henry blinked once, then twice, but I knew he knew exactly what I was referring to. Then, to my surprise, he sent me a pitying look, but it was also of amusement, as if I had asked the simplest of things–if dinosaurs still existed, or who Homer was. As if he couldn't quite believe yet that I was questioning such. I braced myself.

    "Because I wanted to."

    Summary

    “Oh, Dr. Papen, careful with the students!”, Francis teased, putting his glasses on the bedside table.
    “I am, I am. But how about those redheads in my bed? You are not under-age, are you?”

    Summary

    Mr. Hobart went on polishing something and brought me back into the workshop:
    “So, Francis and you live together now, I hear?”
    “We are roommates, yes.” I was suddenly embarrassed and stopped caressing the chair.
    “Roommates. I see.”
    His dark eyes gleamed in the dusty twilight. I felt my cheeks turn hot.
    “It’s good for Francis to have a – roommate at last. Seems to suit him very well. He looks much better than last summer.”

    Summary

    So; I spent my nights with my fingers entwined in Francis' hair as he slept soundly in my arms, recalling of every instance wherein Henry Winter had seemed to be my scholar, my savior, the stoic genius who stole my mind and planned my downfall with meticulous ease.

    Summary

    Julian Morrow was always supposed to be a somebody, and it’s not until his third summer in Rome, twenty-four and tan and smoking cigarettes on his balcony, that he realises that he was born a somebody, and there is nothing his father can do about it, either.

    Summary

    “Wait – did I miss anything? When did we start kissing? Did we – I mean, what happened last night?”
    “Nothing happened. Your innocence is still intact”, he chuckled. “I just like to kiss in the morning.”

    Summary

    Unseen of the others, I noticed an intense glance between Henry and Camilla across the table. The light from the ceiling made Camilla’s hair shine like gold. Her gray eyes rested calmly on Henry. When I looked at him quickly, I saw a strange glow in his eyes, and I suddenly knew: he had seen Camilla in this state. He had brought her there. I swallowed.

    Summary

    The sun had wandered a bit, drawing it’s golden fingers on the old, shimmering floor now. The roses from roomservice she collected in a glass on the nightstand were witnesses of their lovemaking, and she didn’t know if she could ever get herself to throw them away.

    Summary

    Camilla slid between us. Only moments before, the three of us had been entangled in a warm, pleasant and promising embrace. Now we sat rigid and upright, eyes wide open and clothes askew, and stared at Bunny like at Charon himself.

    Summary

    Sometimes, I couldn’t suppress the thought that we two alone would manage to get out of the whole story relatively undamaged as we moved on fairly quickly after the unfortunate incidents. We didn’t dwell on it, we rarely even talked about it in that first time of blissful erotic explorations. Of course, there was the occasional nightmare both of us had to endure. But it sure helped to not be alone when waking up from one of those.

    Summary

    “Hello,” Francis replied evenly, meeting his eyes, and I wondered if he still held any bitterness against his old lover or if Charles did the same. Depending on the way you look at it, it was a moment of soap opera-like significance, Francis and his two greatest loves confronting each other at his wedding, and although I was reasonably sure that only Charles knew what happened in my dorm room between Francis and myself that night, I was also sure that Charles knew I was aware of his and Francis’s shared history. A secret history, as are all the histories of boys loving boys, concealed behind closed doors and dark rooms and lies we tell ourselves. How strangely connected were we all, clinging to each other’s history: Henry and Bunny and Camilla, Charles and Francis and me.

    An alternate ending to The Secret History.

    Summary

    “Oh shit,” he wailed, rolling his head back, the heels of his hands pressed to his temples. “Shit. This is it, Richard.”

    “Shut up.”

    “It’s over. We’ve had it. We’re going to jail.”

    “Shut up.” I said again. His panic, oddly, had sobered me. “We’ve just got to figure out what to do.”

    “Look,” said Francis. “Let’s just go. If we leave now we can be in Montreal by dark. Nobody will ever find us.”

    “You’re not making any sense.”

    “We’ll stay in Montreal a couple of days. Sell the car. Then take the bus to, I don’t know, Saskatchewan or something. We’ll go to the weirdest place we can find.”
