    Summary

    At North Shore they called it repetition compulsion: the desire to throw himself into a ravine because at least he recognized the landscape. They warned him that he would do this again, and again, and again if he wasn’t careful. “It’s like you’re always bracing for a fight,” Laurie said once, “and if it doesn’t happen, you create one.” Sophia’s blood on the driveway, Marty’s blood in the parking lot, Psyche with her goddamn lamp, poking at a good thing until it’s scorched and screaming. There’s only one story, the oldest: “You climb a tree too high for you,” his pop said, as he passed Rust a bottle of whiskey and began to splint his arm, “you best be prepared to fall and get hurt.”

    Summary

    “Damn, Caulfield.” Chloe threads one hand through her hair, fingernails blunt and scraping. “That’s pretty gay.”

    "You’re pretty gay,” Max snorts, but it loses its bite when she’s breathless and palming at Chloe’s hip where her pants ride down and the heavy band of her boxers is visible.

    (Or, five times Max rewound time to preserve the sanctity of friendship, and one time she didn't.)

    Summary

    Chloe lets loose a shaky laugh, rising to her feet with only a moment’s hesitation and shimmying out of her pants. “You sure this isn’t all an elaborate plot to get me naked, hipster?”

    “Please,” Max grins, feeling bold and powerful in the dark. “As if I’d need to be elaborate.”

    --

    Chloe's a drunk insomniac. Max is tired.

    Summary

    “You gonna stop clucking over my wardrobe and ask the sixty thousand dollar question?”

    “How you found me? You’re a private investigator. That ain’t worth sixty thousand dollars.”

    “You know what you do?” Marty said. “You just suck all the fun out of my life.”
