    Summary

    When Credence met the man’s eyes, he felt a strong jolt in his gut, a profound instinct of sameness about him, in some way he couldn’t fully conceive. The dark thing residing inside Credence was maybe the dark thing in this man, too.

    His hands began to tremble as they did when he was scared, but this didn’t feel like fear so much as a heady thrill he didn’t understand. “Hello, my name is Credence. I am calling on you and your neighbors with an interesting article.” He handed over a copy of The Watchtower. “I am wondering if you would be interested in reading this.”

    Summary

    "You scared?" says Frank after a moment, tilting his head.

    "Of you?" scoffs Tommy.

    "Of a grill at Brendan's place," says Frank. "Maybe his two baby girls?"

    Yes, Tommy doesn't say. He's fucking terrified. He can't have that— that perfect family, that happiness, because he'll fuck it up, and then he'll lose it, and he's bone-tired of losing things.

    Summary

    Let them see that she is like the new map of Europe. Scars removed, scrubbed clean. Ready for a new future, a new name. Let them see that, and set her free.

    Summary

    They spend a lot of these kinds of afternoons in Jonathan’s bedroom—because his mom works second shift and Will is usually at her house with Mike, and Jonathan doesn’t like being at Steve’s. He’d never say so, but Nancy can tell. So she suggests Jonathan’s house, and they listen to her. They always listen to her; they’d do anything she asked.

    But today is different.

    Summary

    Golden rule of threesomes, they say, is that the third person must be a stranger.

    But they’ve never been all that good at following the rules, have they?
