    Summary

    It’s Thanksgiving, two years after The Incident, and Justin is praying for Shitty to finally call so he’ll get out of this godawful dinner with the in-laws.

    “Stop calling it The Incident,” Holster whispers under his breath. They’re hiding out in the backyard, which is exactly how Justin figured this would go. “You got catfished and discovered your dream career in body disposal.”

    Summary

    Standing in a room of his peers who hardly lifted a finger to help Thomas, James says, “All that you love can be taken from you. But when it’s taken away, you’re still there. When you feel like you have nothing left, know this: you still have your fight, and it does keep you warm at night.”

    He doesn’t stay for the applause.

    Summary

    It’s hard to be the thing he wants. It’s even harder when he doesn’t look at her like she’s a thing, when his hands grip her thighs like the edges of a pedestal so he can bring her down to his level. When he decides to remind her that the thing between them isn’t hunger, isn’t sweet, isn’t avoidable.

    Charles gets to see her. She regrets a lot of things, but not that. God help her, not that.

    Summary

    St. Gerebrand, pray for your sinners. Today I learned new meanings: bloodbath, bloodthirsty. Bright red on his clean knuckles, the Rhine an ashy prayer in our mouths; I confess, I closed my eyes for the spray that meant a full night's sleep with him against me.

    “Everything feels like the end of the world when it happens. No one can see the future, so it’s hard to believe it exists.”

    Summary

    After Jack, even the weight of the hockey world’s combined expectations felt like something to brace against. Steadying. When he told Kelly that he’ll be fine, a month into his first regular season, she believed him. He doesn’t know why she cried, but she believed him.

    Summary

    When Jack says, “I was alone,” Kent doesn’t talk about the times he carried Jack back to bed and made sure he was on his side so he wouldn’t choke on his own vomit in the night. He says, “I’m glad you’re clean.”

    Summary

    He looks at Kent and feels nothing, if nothing feels like a shattered rib cage, all the protection around his heart gone. Kent is right in front of him, his hair falling into his face and his hands clenched in the sheets, but if Jack closes his eyes, Kent could be anywhere.

    (or, Jack and Kent can’t keep their bond if they both want to play in the NHL.)

    Summary

    Cursey looks at Kit and thinks, for the hundredth time, I want to kiss him. He doesn’t; he needs friends, not a boyfriend. But in this light, between these trees, in the silence and so far from campus, it’s harder to remember that than it should be.
