    Summary

    O decides she wants to do what a normal girlfriend does with one of her boyfriends

    (and here neither Ben nor Chon bother pointing out that normal girlfriends don't have boyfriends in the plural, because they're waiting for her to get to the really objectionable part of her scheme)

    and meet the parents.

    Summary

    And, for a while, I thought I was the princess,
    cotton candy pink, sitting there in my room, in the tower of the castle,
    young and beautiful and in love and waiting for you with confidence.
    But the princess looks into her mirror and only sees the princess,
    while I’m out here, slogging through the mud, breathing fire,
    and getting stabbed to death.
    Okay, so I’m the dragon. Big deal.
    You still get to be the hero.

    Summary

    When fellow serviceman and one time fuckbuddy Jordan Parrish calls Chon to ask if the eruption in violence in Beacon Hills is because Chon's expanding his drug dealing territory, Chon's answer is a flat out no. Ben's far too ethical to let that happen. But Chon goes down to Beacon Hills anyway. If Jordan needs help, Chon will help.

    Summary

    They come to Ben and Chon with an offer that’s only slightly more difficult to refuse than a root canal, and Chon warns Ben with a soft, warm whisper against the shell of his ear that none of the Mexicans, with their silver-handled guns and cowboy boots, should be considered as easy and light-hearted as they appear to be, especially from where Ben and Chon sit on the white, plush couch in Alex’ hotel room, plied with fruit and cheese and wine, and especially when Ben and Chon are so pleasantly buzzed, a faint whiff of their morning toke drifting from both of their clothes.

    Summary

    This is how it goes:

    O meets Chon.

    Chon meets Ben.

    Ben meets O.

    The first happens nearly fifteen years before the second, but the third only happens about eighteen months after the second. The difference to Chon, however, is negligible. He's known O since she was Ophelia and he was Johnny, since she was a little girl, her bare skin free of ink and her hair free of dye. Chon's only known Ben for about seven years, but he's always been Ben, steady reliable Ben, a counterbalance to the beautiful fucking chaos that is O. So yes, he's known O longer...

    But he'd kill for both.

    (He's killed for both.)
