    Summary

    She’s struck again, inexplicably, with the feeling that she gets sometimes when she’s in the forest, or under the stars, behind the wheel of a car with the windows down, mid-kiss: the feeling that her soul is too big for her body. That she can’t possibly be contained.

    “My advances have a habit of ending lives, y’know,” she jokes, her voice wry. “I’d watch your step if I were you.”

    “You can keep thinking that all you want, periwinkle,” Henry says. “From where I’m standing, it looks like they have a habit of saving them, too.”

    Summary

    Henry Cheng had not considered all of the logistics of a road trip when he first suggested it to Gansey and Blue. His first and foremost thought had been this: Gansey and Blue and himself, driving into a new horizon, the sunlight casting a crown of gold over Gansey’s head and Blue’s hand trailing out of the window, sailing through the wind. It was an idyllic image borne of Henry’s idyllic hopes.

    Summary

    Gansey didn’t realize how much he’d been looking forward to Christmas with Blue and Henry until it was ripped out from under him.

    They were in a Waffle House in Atlanta on a Tuesday night in late November when Gansey got the call. Henry and Blue were using him as the tiebreaker in an argument on whether or not the movie Con Air was any good. Blue kept stealing Henry’s fries, and they were watching the lightest, most transient flurry of snow fall outside. Gansey was so busy laughing at something gorgeous and adorable Henry had said that he almost didn’t even realize his phone was ringing.

    He fished his phone out of his pocket and looked at the screen before accepting the call.

    “Hello, mother.”
