    Summary

    Grantaire’s first flower appears when he is two years old. It’s late, for a First Bloom, considering some children are born with their First already etched above their hearts, but Grantaire’s parents are warm and loving and wait to see what sort of child they have born unto the world.

    His First Bloom, when it comes, is vibrant patch of yellow carnations. He is too young to know what it means, and his parents don’t tell him, just—withdraw, and a much smaller patch of yellow carnations appears on his mother’s ankle.

    Combeferre comes rushing after him, putting on a tweed jacket while he rushes. “R! Can I walk you home?”

    Grantaire grins. “Are you using me to as an excuse to come home with me and make intense eye contact with Eponine because that’s the only kind of contact your ass is getting?”

    Combeferre pushes his glasses up his nose. “Yup.”

    “Cool, cool.” They walk in silence for about a minute before Grantaire loses whatever tentative grasp he had on himself, because he has no chill. “I’m going to ask you about Enjolras’s forearms, now.”

    At this, Combeferre blushes, and Grantaire has no idea what to do with that. “Eponine told me you would ask me that. And she told me to tell you, ‘R, ask him your fucking self,’ and now that that’s out the way, I would like to add that my personal opinion is that those are your blooms, and also that maybe science should revisit that old wives tale regarding soulmates and wow it certainly looks like rain.”

    Grantaire surveys the dark cloudy night sky. A drop or to of rain falls on him, but he smiles. “I don’t know, looks pretty sunny to me.”

    “I’m Steve’s friend,” Billy said, pulling out into the road. “I’m Billy.”
    “I’ve never met you,” Erica said, scowling.
    “Yeah well, we don’t travel in the same social circles.” Billy wanted a cigarette.
    “You look like a criminal,” Erica said.

    “Fantastic. Why does Lucas need a ride?”

    “That’s the thing. I was picking up the Sinclairs because their parents went to ‘Napolis and they weren’t sure when they’d be back and now the roads are blocked so who the hell knows.”

    “Oh Jesus H. Christ.”

    “So I guess the best thing would be to take them to Lucas’s house and-”
    “Don’t-”

    “You’ll have to-”

    “Say-”

    “Babysit.”

    “It.”

    “What is the big deal, Billy?”

    “The big deal is we’ve been together for what? Six months? And somehow I’m raising seventeen fucking children.”

    “Nice play,” Steve Harrington said, casually, catching his breath. He was grinning even, but it had been a good game and Billy had saved them at the end. They’d both played very well.

    Billy watched Steve Harrington pull at the collar of his t-shirt, cooling himself.

    Nice play.

    Billy had blinked at him for a second, his cheeks heating up.

    He smirked and threw out, “Oh gee, thanks, Harrington.” He didn’t even know what attitude he was going for. It didn’t seemed to bother Steve.

    He’d been into Harrington since Day 1. He’d been so into Harrington he’d had to beat the shit out of Harrington in an attempt to prove he was not into Harrington, to protect himself from the terror of it. He had failed.

    Harrington had never said anything nice before. Why the fuck should he? Billy had said nice things to him. Technically. They might have sounded less than nice the way he said them.

    Nice play.

    Billy thought of “nice play” for days. He lay in bed, metal blaring in his earphones, and thought of Steve’s crazy post-game sweaty hair, and his goofy grin, and the way he’d said “nice play” like they were old pals.

    “You know,” Billy said, leaning well into Steve’s personal space, till Steve was surrounded by the scent of his cologne and the heat of his body. “If you’re getting real desperate for sex after your girlfriend left you for a freak, I could help you out.” He leaned closer, speaking right into Steve’s ear, so that Steve could feel the brush of his words against his skin, could feel the ghost of laughter behind them. “You didn’t have to creep on a little girl to get laid.”

    Bookmarker's Notes

    They're both hungover on their way out of Chicago, and Rusty insisted on breakfast at a Cracker Barrel even though the smell of fried food makes her nauseous. Tess kind of hates her life at the moment. So maybe that explains why she finally addresses the elephant in the room (well, car) somewhere in Indiana, of all places.

    "You and Danny," she says, while it's her turn at the wheel and he's functionally trapped. From the vaguely betrayed look he shoots her over his sunglasses, he knows it, too. "That happened at some point, right?"

    She keeps her eyes on the road, but in her peripheral vision, she can see him weighing his options. His first instinct is probably to deny everything, but he doesn't, which is nice. She hates it when guys treat her like she's an idiot.

    He visibly ponders a few different possible responses before finally settling on: "How much do you actually want to know?"

    It's a good question. She forces herself to consider it carefully. "I don't need all the gory details," she says. "And I don't mean to pry. You've known each other a long time, there's a lot of history there, and I'd rather hear it from Danny. But once I came into the picture--"

    "No," he says at once, then reconsiders. "Not once he got serious about you, anyway. He's bisexual, not a cheat."

    Tess lifts an eyebrow.

    "Okay, he is a cheat, but that's just cards."
