are we better together
27 Feb 2020
After dating Win for about a year, Team decides to come out to his parents and introduce them to his boyfriend.
As the remaining minutes of the drive dwindle, Win bites his thumbnail and trades messages with Dean and four other friends in their year. From time to time, he sneaks looks at Team while singing along to whatever song is on. They’re all deliberately chosen, all soothing ballads from various artists, intended to melt some of the tension holding Team’s shoulders so stiff.

A month after Team's failed attempt to introduce Win to his parents, Team's mother pays a visit instead.

And someday, Win will remember this moment.
The haze forcing his mind blank.
The profound knowledge in Team’s mother’s eyes.
